@  Mr Kittens a... : (24 June 2019 - 09:14 AM) It started off amazing, but toward the later half, not so much.
@  Mr Kittens a... : (24 June 2019 - 09:01 AM) The anime, not so much. But the song. Yes.
@  Mr Kittens a... : (24 June 2019 - 01:35 AM) I can't tell in words how wonderful this song is. It gives me hope, lol. https://www.youtube....h?v=Nafii87gdzs

@  Twinreaper : (22 June 2019 - 07:32 AM) Hopefully we will get to see some gameplay at the end of the year, and NOT have to wait till E3 next year.
@  Twinreaper : (22 June 2019 - 07:31 AM) i loved the dmr though

@  RedStarRocket91 : (21 June 2019 - 04:12 AM) Especially since they also had some of the worst master-of-all weapons in the BR and DMR
@  RedStarRocket91 : (21 June 2019 - 04:10 AM) And hitscan is part of why I hated Halo 2 & Reach so much
@  RedStarRocket91 : (21 June 2019 - 04:10 AM) Mimicking projectile travel time was easily the most important thing about Halo 3
@  RedStarRocket91 : (21 June 2019 - 04:09 AM) I have to say, I desperately hope the weapons aren't instant hitscan
@  Twinreaper : (20 June 2019 - 08:55 PM) And... are the weapons this time around going to be true 100% hitscan, or imitation hitscan, ala a velocity setting
@  Twinreaper : (20 June 2019 - 08:54 PM) Unless they can set the mechanics to play 75% - 90% Blam! settings...it doesn't matter how great a story they write or how jaw dropping the graphics look.
@  Twinreaper : (20 June 2019 - 08:53 PM) But aside from all that... we have no idea how halo will feel on a completely brand new engine. It will never feel like any the titles running on the Blam! variants, that's a 100% certainty. The big question is, how much of the gameplay mechanics will feel different in response and movement, and how many will feel close as possible to original engine Halo
@  Twinreaper : (20 June 2019 - 08:51 PM) That's just not my opinion, but the general opinion of the mass majority of the community. I've seen it stated several times over on tons of sites and player reviews.
@  Twinreaper : (20 June 2019 - 08:50 PM) But with Halo 4 and Halo 5, it began to lose itself and what made it special.
@  Twinreaper : (20 June 2019 - 08:50 PM) Halo has and always will be that special shooter that didn't rely on gimmicks or overly complex mechanics to achieve itself becoming a skill based top tier shooter.
@  Twinreaper : (20 June 2019 - 08:49 PM) The problem with the Spartan Abilities are that they completely change the game mechanics and it becomes just like every other FPS or 3rd person shooter out there. Once you do that, your niche special game looses it's identity a little and becomes another generic shooter. In Reach, it didn't change the game mechanics too much, but did hurt map movement, tactical map layouts and the ability to enjoy previous title map redux's, without breaking the maps.
@  Drizzy_Dan : (20 June 2019 - 10:04 AM) Spartan Abilities are not my favorite as they do not have a canonical place in the game really. Armor Abilities weren't good for having a place in canon though so I guess it's not a good point but realistically there isn't anything special about those moves. Anyone who can run can charge into things with their shoulder

#380489 USF PSA

Posted by Spyro on 06 February 2016 - 04:16 PM

Okay...so I thought I'd go ahead and make this into a proper thread, this is obviously an announcement about the United States of the Forum (USF) which is something I've been doing since about a month after I joined the site nearly 4 years ago.

Well, sad to say it, but it has to be postponed indefinitely.

I wish I could have the time needed to devote to doing the USF as I used to and that I could guarantee it going smoothly, but I currently don't have the time to do so. Maybe the June circuit can happen, yay! :D

Just an announcement though, here's hoping June's happens though! :D

#375077 United States Of The Forum Presidential Election 10 Voting Poll!!...

Posted by Spyro on 05 October 2015 - 11:56 PM

Alright, to start, I'd like to apologize for the delay on getting this out, and on my lack of doing really anything for this election. My personal life has been getting in the way of being active on the forum.


Okay, with that out of the way, time for the voting of your candidates. You may be asking "where's the pre-poll at?" and to answer that...there isn't one this time. We're kicking it OG this time. Only the final votes with the candidates.


So for those who don't know yet...here are the rules for THIS thread.


‚ÄčNo advertising, telling people to vote for a certain member, or harassing other members. Period. The punishment for doing any of it is the same as if you broke any other rule involved in the election process.*










*See USF nomination thread for punishment details.







Voting ends on October 8th at 12 AM CST






#374106 United States of the Forum Presidential Election 10 nomination thread!...

Posted by Spyro on 20 September 2015 - 09:30 PM




Okay everyone, it's about that time again. What time? Well I'm glad that at least one person asked. It's time for me to start up the United States of the Forum Presidential Elections (USFPE) again! *cue cheering*


So a quick rundown for the newbies out there: Every four months I pit members who you select against each other to see who is worthy to be your "leader" and the representative of the non-staff mass on the forum. There are rules and other such things that must be followed and such as all other things on the forum, and I like to operate this as independent of the Moderators and staff as possible as it is unofficial, though some do help out from time to time.


The main idea of this is to get nominated and then voted into office, or nominate someone else and try to get them into the position instead, if being a president just isn't your style. Either way, it's meant for fun, not to be taken seriously. :3


Now, before the rules, I'd like EVERYONE to remember to take a good long look at this thread for me. smile.png



Now that you've remembered, or learned, let's try to avoid that this time, shall we? smile.png




Okay, the rules.




0. You cannot nominate yourself.


1. You may only nominate ONE member.


2. Once you nominate a member, you can't change your nomination unless that person decides to drop out of the running, so think before you nominate. *So don't just go and edit your post after I see that you nominated*


3. No nominating anyone who already has enough nominations to qualify to run. *2 is all it takes to qualify*


4. You are NOT allowed to advertise in this thread in any way. If you advertise it will be reported as breaking the basic rules of this thread.


5. You cannot nominate a Moderator for president, unless they were previously a president. (Drizzy_Dan, The Director, Azaxx)


6. All presidents who have served a term are entitled to a second term if they are voted into it.


6. A president can only serve two terms.




8. Each nominee is allowed a campaign manager if someone so volunteers for the position.


9. Don't spam this thread with unnecessary arguing over nominees.


10. Do NOT attack other nominees or supporters of other nominees.


11. Try to have some fun. :3


The rules are to be interpreted, and can be changed at any time, by me. Any "punishment" for breaking these said rules, are solely up to me unless a moderator must step in. If you break rule 10, it is an instant ban from any participation in any future elections should I choose to continue them. For any questions, PM me.

#368499 Late Reviews with Yoshi Volume 5: Final Fantasy XIII

Posted by Spyro on 28 June 2015 - 03:17 AM

As a long time fan of the FF series, I can honestly tell you that you chose one of the worst titles to review. XIII (and all of it's "part"s) are dubbed the worst FF games ever created by Square Enix. Yes, the combat is essentially the same, but as to whether or not it's a "yellow squirrel" or a person, it's still a video game and all that matters is how much fun it is. The combat system is more about strategy than running around dodging shots and trying to counter attack, you have to out-think the AI in order to win, which is where many fans, myself included, find the most fun in the game. A fairly nice review though, though I would say it seems a tad bit biased. Keep 'em up and I'll be sure to read the next one as well.

#368179 Give me purple, or give me WAR!

Posted by Spyro on 24 June 2015 - 08:28 PM

You realize that regardless of the outcome of this poll, we probably won't change the colors, right?

I personally care more about the fact that this is better than just moping around because we lost our colors. I think it's more of an attempt to have some say in the way the forum works outside of suggestions in the thread months ago. A more active say, such as "Majority of the members want this" like a democracy of sorts. A really, really unstructured democracy. Whether or not this poll changes anything at all, I'm still going to vote and let my opinion be known. I'm voting yes, for the simple reason that I like the color purple.

#367472 Halo 5: Guardians SE, LE and CE contents

Posted by Spyro on 16 June 2015 - 01:22 PM

I'm going to at least be getting the LE, I'd love to get the CE if at all possible depending on my funds at the time. I really like the list of things, and I would personally love to have the statues and physical copies of the orders and dossiers.

Thanks for the read Peanut.

#366549 Your New (Returning) Forum President!!!

Posted by Spyro on 06 June 2015 - 03:50 PM

Well, the election's finally over, and with that, the installment of a new, well this time old, president. That's right folks, who better to take up the mantle of responsibility after Yoshi, than the man who served beside him on his first term, Maestro. After all the hard work Yoshi has put into making the forum such a fun place, I'm quite certain Maestro is the right man to fill the role of successor, and any who disagree...well the voting's over.



Anywho, congrats to your new forum Over Dict President, may he lead with a kind heart and a fist of Orichalcum!





#366398 United States of the Forum Presidential Election 9 Final Poll!!!

Maestro is clearly the best candidate.


And just like that, Maestro has another vote.

#366291 United States of the Forum Presidential Election 9 Final Poll!!!

Posted by Spyro on 04 June 2015 - 02:49 AM

Alright everyone, basic rules apply as always, only I'll be a little more strict now. Anyone who advertises for a candidate (in this thread) will be barred from the next USFPE (Assuming it happens) as a candidate and their nomination will not count.


Anyway, vote for whoever you wish to win! :D

#366083 Maestro For USF Presidente

Posted by Spyro on 01 June 2015 - 08:13 PM

Of all the candidates, Maestro is the sole one with my support. Not only is he a great member of the community, but he has already served in office once before with great results, may his rei- presidency begin anew! :D
