    • So, I've played a couple of games of Halo Wars 2, and... Eh...

      I like it although it's hard to get used to get used to, because it's just similar enough to feel familiar, but different enough that you end up looking in the wrong places for things. They've stuck quite loyally to the original, but made changes in places, some good, some bad. They've removed the tech system and made power a separate type of resource (seems redundant to me - you earn both in the same way). Crates of the main resource (forgot its name - the box one) can still be found around the map and harvested. In addition, there are also bonus reactors which grant the power resource that can be captured around the map (as in HW1), and also garrison-able watch towers. The biggest change (and one that I think was a bad one) is that you now no longer have to garrison units inside Forerunner Supply/Power buildings - you just have to have an infantry unit stand near it for a while. The same applies for the control points in the new gamemode, Domination (which is essentially like territories/dominion, but instead of your bases gaining you extra points, it takes points away from your enemies and both teams start at 5000, I believe).

      The UNSC stuff is also quite fitting, aside from the Jackrabbit. Most is the same as from the original. One difference that I quite liked was the replacement of the Pod (the ship that drops off new bases) with a Condor, albeit one designed to look like the classic D77 Pelican, not the D79. The Brute stuff is where is all goes wrong.

      The Brutes have their own variants of the Ghost, Banshee, Spirit, Locust, Wraith, etc. They don't look great (as I said before, all Brute stuff (both vehicles and buildings) looks more Forerunner than Brute), but that's not to say they're completely bad. There's also a Chopper, albeit with more armour than previous ones (this is probably the joint best looking Brute vehicle). Most of the new Brute vehicles are downright ill suited to the Universe, though. First, the one that I like: The Marauder. It's essentially a Prowler but with a different design, which still fits with the Universe. I actually really like it. Now, the bad ones. There's a Brute mech that looks like the Avatar mechs without the enclosed cockpit. The two Brute flying vehicles (the one to the left in this image and the one that got crushed by an SOEIV in the cinematic trailer) just feel plain wrong.

      Game feels a lot less refined and fluid than HW, as its controls have lost some of their simplicity, and also there are slight delays when opening things like the circle menu. This'll probably be refined by the time it comes out next year, though. Hopefully they can make the graphics a tad more gritty by that time too.

      So, all in all, I like it, but it could be better.

      No, it's not a New Hope. It's published by EA. There is no hope.

    • I'm fairly certain that's fake. That menu screen has almost nothing to do with Halo 3: Anniversary and I'm fairly sure that 343 are hoping people will forget Halo Channel ever existed (seeing as it is horribly slow, hard to navigate and buggy). Plus, why would they show an image of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn? Also, this kind of stuff is relatively easy to fake now, seeing as anyone with an XB1 can now develop UWP programs.

        Loading editor
    • Now that you say it, it does seem fake. Other than the logo saying Halo 3, there isn't any other proof. Plus, it looks a lot like the H4 one, with the actual menu appearing after you press Start.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah. Also, the person never actually navigates past the Halo Channel screen. Could easily be just a looped video rather than a functioning menu.

        Loading editor
    • But, that said, I'm still 100% sure we'll see a Halo 3: Anniversary in 2017. I hope Blur does the cutscenes, Saber Interactive the campaign and Certain Affinity the multiplayer, just like with H2A. However, I hope they communicate/share assets a lot more because with H2A, everything had three different designs, one by each company. That said, I hope Blur/Saber have more influence on the designs, because CA's designs in H2A's multiplayer were very Halo 4 as apposed to the gritty, realistic ones made by Saber/Blur.

    • I don't know how this slipped under my radar for so long, but apparently 343i are remastering Halo Wars and bundling it with the sequel as Halo Wars: Definitive Edition.

        Loading editor
    • And with Skyrim getting a remaster + console mods, I'm beginning to doubt whether we'll see any new games by 2020, or if they'll all just be remasters of previous games.

    • Well, Halo 3: Anniversary will probably come next year too, so it's not looking likely :P

    • Oh, and also, they're pulling the same thing as Activision are. The only way they've announced that you can get the Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is by buying the Halo Wars 2: Ultimate Edition, just as you have to buy the special edition of CoD: Infinite Borefare to get the remaster of CoD: Modern Warfare.

    • I was rewatching the TFoR: Animated Series, and although I had first thought it was just 'meh', it has just struck me how awful it really was. Design-wise, it added a bunch of things that really don't fit, like random holograms. Also, all of the acting was extremely wooden (aside from Jen Taylor, but I would expect no less from her) and the writing was terrible. It also made John seem like a massive dick, right from the King of the Hill scene to the gym scene. Plus, it misses out the far better half of the story.

      Although, that said it really does pick up during the Battle of Chi Ceti.

      It's quite simple, Vess.  You just have to interact with them.  Your character will automatically scream and point, atrracting the police's attention.

      Step 2: shoot the niggers yourself. This still doesn't solve the problem entirely, as you will lose money for doing it instead of earning it, but at least it's something.

    • I'm not tired of Halo. I'm tired of the Post Bungie Era of Halo. So many things are so wrong with it. I didn't play Halo 2 until after the whole original trilogy was available. The cliff hanger didn't bother me so much. 

      Halo 5... Man that was terrible.

    • Among the halo universe, the reason I have chosen the Kig-yar as my people is because they are the ones who have needed me the most. They are sinners in need of a savior, and the God of the halo universe does not love them enough to be their hope, so I have taken it apon my self to give them the love glory and dignity they will never know.

      But now I cannot help them, the Librarian may have given the non human races a chance to live, but she has insured they will have nothing to live for. I'm just being honest when I say this but with humanity as the "reclaimers" it is only a matter of time until all will either die, or worse. You know who I think should be the reclaimers? No one! No mortal being should have the right to have such power.

      Under fair use I will take the races of halo with me. Unggoy, sangieili, those guys who think its funny to have a name I could never hope to pronounce, we shall all have our paradise in another demention, a alternant story, a fan fiction of our own to represent what halo could have been. And humans can come to. No longer having to constantly live in fear of what humanity will do with their "destiny as a species" I could finally have respect for them with out my physiological insecurity of unslovable danger getting in the way of that.






      Buuuuuuut since I know no one would join me except those who will never even find out I exist anyway, I am going to continue my fantasy existence in play stations greatest treasure, war of the monsters, as Raptros the kaiju dragon! The size of a B-52. Flying at 8 times the speed of sound, able to throw a car with more strength then a 14 inch triple barrel cannon, able to breath fire hot enough to melt a battalion of tanks! You have got to admit, that is cooler then any life form in halo could ever be!

      You know what they say, theirs plenty of sci-fi/fantasy option fish in the sea, and I could very well eat all the good ones.

    • After seeing the Forerunner's failure to safeguard the Mantle that they took upon themselves, and now seeing what the A.I. have done in Halo 5, it is my ever growing belief that the Mantle does not belong to Precursors, it does not belong to Forerunners, and it does not belong to humanity. The Mantle belongs to no one. 

      I once believed the Forerunners to be gods. Now I see them for what they were. Flawed beings no different than us. Just mad with power and facing an enemy they couldn't understand.

    • 5's terrible, although still better than the abomination that is 4.

    • I would say that elements of 5 are better than elements of 4, and vice versa. 5's multiplayer is better, but 4's story is miles better than 5's. That said, I think that 5 is overall slightly better than 4, purely because of how amazing 5's Forge is.

      Neither, though, is anywhere near the level of CE, 2, 3 or ODST.

        Loading editor
    • My only real issues with Halo 4 are first and foremost the art style shift, some of the balancing, mission length, and the multi-player. Sparton Ops was an interesting idea that should have been developed further but it seems they've dropped it entirely. 

      Late Night Gaming and The Act Man have talked at length about Halo 5's problems and there are a lot of them. I can't even pick a biggest issue with it because there is so much I hate about it. But if you forced my hand I'd say that Cortana as a villian does not make sense and the way they handled A.I. mortality doesn't make much sense either with Roland's accusatory tone and what not. Cortana was dying naturally instead of being decomissioned. Furthermore, it's been established that decomissioning of rampant A.I.s is sometimes necessary for everyone's safety including their own. We've seen examples of Rampant A.I.s that can still function but they are outlires more than anything. I'm not opposed to exploring A.I. in the Halo universe. It's an area with a lot of plot potential. I just don't like the way they've handled it.

    • The way the newer Halo's have managed the development in nearly every aspect is disappointing. The characters, the story, the art design, etc etc. I cannot think of any legitimately good moment I have had playing any of them, other than Forge. Halo 5's Forge is superb, but that is all I can say for the game itself. The thing is, some of these ideas aren't too terrible, but they are executed in a way that makes them terrible.

      Halo is just being managed by a team that has no idea what they should do with the story, and a lot of that stems from there being no story to really tell anymore. Halo 3 was the end of Halo, there was no need to continue the story of the Master Chief. 343's decision to bring him back is confusing, and especially with no context that really works. They try to make exciting things, but these are ideas that should have been reserved and kept secret (e.g the Forerunners).

      What would have been interesting for me at least is a post-war environment similar to Mass Effect. Imagine after the Human-Covenant War, the need for these species to cooperate and come together. That would be more fitting in my consideration, and would illustrate the moment where Lord Hood and the Arbiter shook hands.

      Or you know, we can just shoot robots and a copy+paste Covenant.

The usa simply solves its desire to expand by leaving smaller weaker countries a lone that they know they can't pay back. Or if they aren't dumb enough to barrow the way the usa barrows they will offer that country a very bad business deal, and if they don't except it they will send in some of their jackals to pressure them. If that don't work then they label them terrorist and send in the army. As you can see, plenty of reasons not to need to be warmongers.

      It's not warmongering as much as it's appeasing the public. You see, at this point, the US can get involved in any conflict (so long as it's not with another major country) with no risk to anything but its reputation. And the American media and general population has this love of interventionism. Whenever something in the world isn't "perfect", people all scream and protest and ask "Well, why aren't we fixing it?" So whether it's financial aid, social rights influence, medical supplies, or military "policing" (heheh), the US gets involved, and stays involved until everything becomes just peachy again.

      But things tend to stay rather unpeachy, and often times it's because our nose is so deep in someone else's business, that we smudge their pile of shit  into a permanent stain.

Halo Reach f uses the projectile sim but is a little easier to land accurate shots than Halo 3 due to an increased projectile speed. I honestly am not sure which one is better. Although, Halo 3 naturally should be ranked above Reach in just about any contest. 

      I would love for Halo to get a realistic projectile sim but until Halo migrates to PC players will never be able to achieve the accuracy necessary to fully appreciate it. Yes, I know that Battlefield on consoles does it but the majority of Battlefield's audience plays on PC right?

    • I have noticed that our countries have been in a postering contest ever since the conclusion of the Cold War Drag. I honestly find the U.S. President an embarrassment. As a Russian citizen what is your opinion of Putin?

        Loading editor
    • A lot needs to be taken into account for Putin, because he has done a lot to benefit and harm the people of Russia. This is not an easy subject for a lot of Russians, but they support Putin mostly because they believe he will protect them, and it is easy to see why.

      Consider for a moment the US collapsed suddenly, and there was an absence of government and military command. This is the case of the collapse of the Russian SFSR, and the large part of the USSR. Russian citizens were trapped in what were now foreign countries, (e.g. Ukraine, Belarus, Kazahkstan, Latvia, etc etc) and they were not allowed to leave. Imagine if this happened with the states, and you were now seperated from your family with no opportunity to leave. Now consider the military selling their weapons to criminals and gangs, and these gangs going around and raiding the place with no action from the government or the police.

      This was the Yeltsin era of the Russian Federation, people lost homes, lost jobs and lost every oppotunity for care. People starved on the streets and died from the cold every day. Yeltsin and the government didn't do a thing about it, and this led to a lot of hostility in Russia. This was my childhood; granted I wasn't on the street, but I would walk by homeless families and children who didn't have food or shelter to survive.

      Now, Putin replaced Yeltsin as the President of Russia following the New Year of 1999 to 2000. This all changed under Putin, as he worked to pass legislation through the Duma to help these people get homes, get jobs and get the services they needed to survive. He also worked to weed out the Russian Mafia and managed to cut their activity dramatically. He was also tough on foreign leaders, and always put the Russian agenda before the agenda's of other countries.

      So you see, there is a very good reason people love Putin as the President of Russia. Now, it is time to consider what he has done with his most recent term. It all started with Pussy Riot, a local homosexual-rights group entering churches around the country, interrupting the meetings and proposed their equality through unsavoury means. A draft was made for the law of: 'Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values', otherwise known as the anti-gay propaganda law in the West. I didn't like the law, but I understood why it was established. It doesn't criminalise homosexuality, however it does prosecute people who are teaching children about stuff like child pornography, child rape and homosexuality. Following this was the 'invasion of Crimea' and the Ukrainian Civil War which Russia has been a part of. I am not going to deny our involvement, but personally I find myself agreeing with the Annexation of Crimea on the basis it wasn't illegal for our military to be there, (check the Moskva-Kyiv Agreement) which states that Russia is allowed to have a maximum of 25,000 soldiers stationed at Crimea. During the crisis of Ukraine, the agreement wasn't nullfied and therefore we were allowed to be there. And with a 90% vote from the Crimea population wanting to merge with Russia, I cannot disagree. However, any other action in Ukraine I disagree with, if we are actually involved there.

      Other than that, Putin has been mostly involved in Syria. And my opinion on that is clear cut: Assad is better than ISIL. There have also been a string of deaths of Putin opponents, which I find very disturbing as I believe strongly in the idea of freedom of criticism. However, a lot of these have been acquainted with Putin ideologues who act as vigilanties for our President, and many of them have been charged with their murders.

      I respect Putin greatly as a President, and as a leader of Russia. Because he has done a lot for our country, and it is a disservice to deny that. However, I do not agree with actions that go against the liberties of out people, and the people of the world. Therefore, it is my responsibility to criticise where needed.

      I'm a Yankee too, yeah. Now, because of my close proximity to both Sagamore Hill (Teddy Roosevelt's house) and Manhattan (Literally Hell before FDR), I've always viewed Ol' Franky in a very positive light. And I also see many, many similarities to Putin. Lemme explain why.

      If you look at the 30s before he came around, especially in The City, it was absolute chaos. After the Black Tuesday, (the day when the economy suddenly disappeared, basically) people were literally stepping over bodies in the streets, the mass suicides were that common. The Mafia basically controlled the local government. The largest banks were denying frantic people from depositing their money, because they themselves had none to give. And nobody had jobs. Nobody had anything.  In parts of the country, Unemployment Rates went as high as 90%.

      The Stock Market was gone;  the dollar fell tenfold; the richest philanthropists hit rock bottom, factories closed; entire skyscrapers were abandoned; people lived in subway tunnels, boxes, or wherever they could find shelter.

      In many ways, this is similar to the state of Russia after the Soviet Union's collapse.  And the first president we had during the Great Depression (as this time period was called) was Hoover.  Hoover, much like Yeltsin, was completely inept.

      Hoover was, like Coolidge before him (and similar to Yeltsin), a laissez-faire Capitalist.  In essence, he believed that the economy was in the hands of the people alone, and that government intervention in the economy was wrong.  What this did was allow the situation to deteriorate further.  So bad, in fact, that people lived in scrap villages that rival the slums of Cape Town in their repulsiveness. The people that lived in these villages (or heard of them) called them "Hoovervilles". Hoover did nothing to fix the situation. Instead he built a dam.

      This all changed when FDR came in. Now, FDR was a Socialist. There is no denying that. I don't openly support or defend Socialism as the "perfect society", but in some situations, I will admit, it is the only choice. And the 1930s were one of those times.

      Roosevelt called his course of action the New Deal (as you may know, Thel, but I'm explaining for people that might not).  And this is where he gets very Putin-esque.  Firstly, he created programs and institutions, managed by the government, to get people employed.  The Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA), the Public Works Administration (PWA), the Civilian Conservations Corps (CCC) and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) being the most notable examples.  

      Like Putin, FDR also put in a Social Security system which provided low-income and unemployed people with government funding, so they could continue to live.

      He also created the FDIC, a Government-owned bank insurance that would give people their money if the banks wouldn't.

      To take care of the rampant Mafia problem, he destroyed the Cosa Nostra's main illegal trade, whiskey, by making alchohol legal again. (Prohibition is over!  Hurah!)  Mr. Vladmir also cracked down on the Russian Crime Syndicates who took power in post-Soviet Russia.

      And, also like Putin, Franky stayed in close contact with his citizens.  I recall Fire telling me about Putin having live Q&A sessions with his countrymen.  FDR did a very similar thing.  In what were called "Fireside Chats", he would communicate with the American people via radio and calmly explain, in a simple but detailed way, exactly what he was doing, why he was doing it, and how it would be done. These were done almost monthly. And yes, I believe he would answer questions that were mailed to him.

      But also like Putin, Roosevelt did some pretty controversial things. Here's a brief list:  He tried once to appoint a bunch extra Justices to the Supreme Court personally, that would share his views.  That's, as you can imagine, extremely biased, and never happened.  He arguably dragged the US into World War II by taking sides with trade and military supplies, and performing Economic Warfare on Japan (which lead to Pearl Harbor).  He also literally enslaved every ethnically Asian citizen on the Pacific Coast "just in case".  To...stop....spies....?  I don't know.  But it was pretty horrendous. And he green-lighted the Manhattan Project, which lead to the Nuclear Bomb. Which lead to the Cold War, and the destabilized world that we know today.

      Yet most like Putin, FDR almost became a dictator.  You see, most Presidents only do two terms.  And now it's a rule that two terms is the limit.  And Roosevelt is the reason.  The people loved him so much, that they elected him again, and again, and again, and again.  He served as President until he died.  Which is arguably a very scary prospect.  From 1933 to 1945, the US was basically a monarchy.  And it's about as controversial as Putin's long reign..

      And that about sums that up.  Hope you have fun reading that massive wall of text!

      Sean, I will admit to not having all the answers. There are so many details of historical situations that it is neigh impossible to keep track of every single little thing. I personally feel the New Deal exacerbated the Great Depression by limiting business too much. The Second World War brought us out of the Depression because literally every American man woman and child started working for the war effort. It gave everyone a purpose, a job to do. I hate socialism in every form. Yet I do see the logic in the post you made. I just don't know enough to properly refute it if I even can. 

      It's been a while since I took U.S. History. I don't really remember the details of why the Japanese attacked us. For the moment I'll take your explanation of ecomic warfare. 

      Regarding nukes, I think they would have been invented sooner or later and it is better that we developed them first so we could have a MAD deterrent to protect the free world. 

      In short, I respect FDR but he is one of my least favorite presidents.

      It's actually a really complex thing, as wartime economics tend to be. Basically, Japan was expanding into China, and nobody liked it. So the US, UK, and France started giving supply loans to the Chinese. But all that did was turn the expansion into more of a stalemate (cause China could actually fight back), so the Western powers who were involved in the Pacific decided they would try to starve the Japs into ending the conflict. Instead Japan invaded northern French Indochina, preventing the supplies from reaching the Chinese. At this point they were getting dangerously close to things like the East Indies and India. So the ABCD (American-British-Chinese-Dutch) line was formed, and delivery of steel and oil was lessened.

      Eventually Actual France surrendered over in Europe (it didn't take long), and the entirety of Indochina was occupied. So the unofficial ABCD gang, who were trying to stop them from spreading further, cut all trade with Japan. 80% of Japan's oil was foreign. The embargo would have collapsed their economy beyond repair. Instead of ending the war, this move had the opposite effect.

      Desperate for resources, the Japanese invaded the oil-rich Dutch East Indies, and were planning on taking the whole of Oceania. But the US was still a major player in the area. So in the name of "Greater East Asia" (their endgame plan, basically a Japanese-lead mega EU), they attacked Pearl Harbor, hoping it would knock the US out just long enough for them to take over and grab up all the resources in the area.

    • > possibly a war crime

      False. It is not a war crime to not wear an insignia and fight a war. They will instead be treated under 'unlawful combatants', (e.g. mercenaries) which simply means if they were captured, Ukraine would not need to be provided the rights of regular POWs under Geneva, but rather their national law. In fact, civilians fighting against 'lawful belligerants' would be considered 'unlawful combatants'. So if Russia was engaged in war with Ukraine, and we didn't have insignias, then they would be treated as 'unlawful combatants' rather than 'lawful belligerants'. No laws have been violated either way.

      What you may be thinking of is the war crime of wearing an enemies uniform while being in combat with them. That is an actual war crime, given that they would not be able to determine their allies from their enemies.

    • It was a beautiful day, the sun was shinning on the rain in the grass from the night, the people of the village where hard at work as always, the children where being annoying as all hell, which is why wemen give birth to them.

      Then a squadron of ships appeared coming out of the fog, the sound of cannon fire echoed through out the town as they sailed in, 45 high class ships, the least among the fleet armed with 39 guns, and onboard each crew men mound rockets onto the side of the deck and lit the fuse, sending the bomb into the fort that guarded us. The local guards fired back with muskets and cannons, but they where out gunned by the invaders, soon the ships had reached the shore and dropped anchor, laying out the gain plank, then, the thunderous sound of horses echoed the streets. I hoped badly that they would kill my annoying little nephew.

      Soon some of them arrived at my house, and began trying to break down the door with a battering ram. I couldn't help my self, I opened the window and shouted "Its not locked you morons!"

In the AC universe, a lot of the conflicts revolve around possession and/or control of anti-asteroid weapons that were designed and built to save Earth from an asteroid named Ulysses. Of course, after the threat of the asteroid was abated many saw the utility of these weapons as war machines. Stonehenge, Megalith, Exacliber, Chandelier, SOLG, and a few others here and there are exampls. They range from missile launch facilities, to massive laser turrets, to  railguns, to space stations with nuclear payloads.

      It stops, hand on a time-worn stone marker, entranced by the vestige of a memory. A memory of it once was, or might have been, for the past is distant and fogged by time. All around it lie its children, and those of others, fading, forgotten. Dead.

      But lo, what light breaks upon the hill? A mausoleum built of cold granite, hung with tattered banners of ancient majesty, and within, a light! What stirs in this realm of decay, this monument of things past? Slowly closer the spectre drifts, daring but to wonder: could it be?

      With light comes life, and with life, hope. Hope that those ancient glories laied to solem rest may yet rise once more.
