  1. Metal Gear Legacy Collection has so much Metal Gear

    You know, at the time I first played MGS3, I was a little put off by this theme, but I fuckin' love it now. Kojima is a master of his art.
  2. Everyone welcome back HereIsOblivion

    I'ma go make one doe
  3. Finally got a 32 gig memory for my Vita

    Yeah, thanks man, it really is a nice piece of hardware. It was the Plus games that did it. SomeOneInAHat gave me a 1-month code and I started checking and purchasing everything through the webstore.
  4. Finally got a 32 gig memory for my Vita

    I just got a Vita and went with a 4 GB on the cheap, waiting to see if they announce a larger card. Also, Amazon's had the 32 GB new for around $80 recently.
  5. So it's been 2 1/2 years since the boards started

    You are number 6.
  6. Stephen, you're definitely on to something with the Call of Duty factor. Peak population nearly halved at Black Ops 2 release. There's a Christmas bump and that's it. Map packs had no significant effect. Steadily moving downward. Just note that these aren't players-per-day. 343 Industries hasn't provided those statistics (Bungie had them for Halo 2, 3, ODST, and Reach). How are RaisetheKnife and GeneticBlueprint doing?
  7. Retail comparison: Xbox 360 4GB Slim Console w/Kinect Sensor: $300 Xbox LIVE Gold 1 Year Subscription Card x 2: $120 1Yr Extended Warranty for Xbox 360 Console: $25 1Yr Extended Warranty for Kinect Sensor: $25 Total: $470 compared to an alternative retail payment plan which provides the same products and services for $100 down + $15/month for 24 months: Total: $460. What a rip-off!
  8. Halo 4 info from Gameinformer

    As long as the base mechanics remain similar, we'll enjoy Halo 4. Most of these points are upsetting to fans because they feel that Reach already deviated too far from the basic game, and these seem to progress beyond Reach. But I'm not so particular. I've enjoyed just about any gametype in any online Halo game.
  9. Sorry mang, took you off during your PlaygroundPredator phase. Too much.
  10. Halo 4 News: First Screenshots Out

    Again, you don't know what you're talking about. The current population numbers reported by each game are recorded differently, Reach's counter is much more accurate than Halo 3's. Halo 3 actually over-reported the current number of players at a given time (it had a sample window of hours). What you need to do is compare the 24 hour counts on Bungie.net, and you'll find that they're remarkably similar.

    Man, you are fucking thick-headed, so I'll spell it out for you: There was no "sharp decline" in Reach's population. Most popular online multiplayer games go through a decline after release. Reach's decline was no more drastic than Halo 3's. This is a myth perpetuated by stupid Bungie.net users, and we know you've alluded to them in the past. And saying that a decline in the population is evidence that "a lot of people weren't happy with Reach" is equally moronic. Perhaps they just aren't that into Halo? Perhaps they played through the campaign, played some multiplayer, got all the achievements and then traded it in? There are plenty of people that don't like Reach, all you have to do is go to a Halo-related forum to find evidence of that (you'll also find people that think Halo game X was better than all the others, where X is any Halo game). Let's leave the statistical analysis to statisticians.

    It's not your style that I have a problem with, it's the falseness of your content. I haven't even read this thread, just going on prior experience. Maybe someday I'll be bored enough to pick it apart, but I mean, of how much worth could such a task be? You'll just dismiss my points with a strawman or some other fallacy.

    This GeneticBlueprint guy posts like a passive-aggressive hypocritical asshole...and yet I still don't like him.

    Man those population numbers really took a dive in Reach compared to Halo 3. Source: My ass.
