The worst part is it's impossible to search for any information WRT title updates because every news source insists on calling playlist updates "title update" like a retard.

Did you even read the post and understand it's meaning? I give up, cannot be argued with.
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
Yeah it does have to make sense, especially when it's very story based like Halo. TF2 gets away with not making an iota of sense on being plain MP with a vague backstory in place simply as a way to spice up the setting.

[QUOTE=devon_wargod;25153057]it's THEIR canon, they can add rainbow guns for all I care[/QUOTE] Just because they can add rainbow guns doesn't make it a good change. What was your point again?

Did you? Ever hear of subtext? Just because it doesn't say explicitly in the dictionary "this is unreasonable" doesn't mean it doesn't say it.

Who said it was awful? I just commented they're fucking around with the continuity too much since Halo 3, you're the one who dragged it out here. Stop putting words in my mouth and pretending you are right. That [i]is[/i] trolling. That [i]is what dragged us out here[/i].

I thought we could have a reasonable discussion on the fuckups between the games, or heck just make my opinion known. But no you had to drag it out into this piece of shit with your lame excuses and denying the obvious. I'm done.
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
You're the one trolling with that post.
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
A retcon is by definition unreasonable btw.

It's still about the DMR to you jesus how thick can you be. @Dai I'm not asking them to agree with me even, I'm asking them to stop pretending like I'm the only one who can see the pink elephant in the continuity.
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
Because it is and you are too retarded to listen when I tell you it isn't about what kind of simplistic lame excuses you can shoehorn in.
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
No no no fucking no. Don't pretend for one second you aren't the one who dragged it out here.
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
It means the themes of your story has no magical power to change the design ethos of a faction. No matter how dark or gritty. If everything has to look the part how come New Alexandria isn't fucking Gotham City or something?
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
Explain new Alexandria with your shitty logic of "plot = design".
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
It's called a lame excuse for being totally shcizo about the design of your guns.

BmB General Games Discussion Reply
No it isn't. That's true for Halo 3, but you must be blind to say that for Reach. You keep trying to strawman me and it drags us down to this nitpicky level, and we could go at this for weeks.

That doesn't change the design or style.

I did and visually it is just fugly grit and greeble to the extreme. That may fit Gears, but Halo has always been clean and simple. I like that design a lot.

Okay because you are too retarded to let go of this conception it has to be about the DMR okay. DMR as a prototype for the BR? Okay, fine. Why is the army using a protype as a main weapon? How did the tech make it off Reach to become the BR if everyone died and comms got bu...

Are you hard of hearing or something?
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
Because it's not about the guns or how you can shoehorn in some ridiculous explanation for how it makes sense to you, it's about the continuity and how it is presented in the games.

Actually Master Chief's armor had been grittied up since Halo 2 to account for battle wear from said. It was clean in Halo 2 because it was brand spanking new.
BmB General Games Discussion Reply
Halo has always been very clean in terms of design, and in fact I think Halo 3 went overboard in terms of greeble.

BmB General Games Discussion Reply
Just FYI I don't have a problem with the Spartan III's other than their design (Gears of Halo, yuck) as everyone died on Reach and this is the first time we see anything other than Master Chief. There is nothing to contradict.
