Keen on the hygiene and on the mission like a super technician.

I'm not gonna lie, I love how Cortana looks in Halo 2 Remastered, but that's more to do with just how good that game looks in general. It's a shame the rest of the games in the Master Chief Collection didn't get the same treatment

The enhanced visuals setting actually screws up Combat Evolved Anniversary's visuals by over sharpening everything. The enhanced setting was made to upscale Halo Reach to 4K but it looks awful on CE.

People were confused that FF15 was popular with women? It's four different, distinct types of hot dudes with varied personalities like a boy band RPG. It was popular enough with me, at least. Out of all the games that actually have fanservice for people who are into dudes, I think FF14, FF15, and Breath of the Wild are probably the biggest ones. I've almost never seen a male character in a game that a) is wearing skimpy clothes and also b) is not a disgustingly huge muscle weirdo who exists only to be someone's fitness goals.

People talked up Overwatch as being similar to TF2 and then it wasn't at all, and even if I had wanted to get into the game they kept rebalancing it constantly. Plus there were no dedicated servers so I couldn't find any interesting or fun places like I used back when I played TF2. Plus all the other players were obnoxious so I quit the game about a month after buying it.

Yeah, the characters of FF15 were great, you got 4 cute guys emotionally bonding in a way that was (and is still) pretty rare.
Good call with BotW too, people really went nuts over twinks Link and crossdressing Link

Moreover on Breath of the Wild, there are entire mods out there for it now that let you play the whole game as Zelda or as Linkle, both of which are really drat popular too.

Combat Evolved Anniversary's enhanced visuals also fumble some important details in the environments compared to the original graphics. The chapter 343 Guilty Spark is probably the biggest example, a lot of the blood and carnage you find as you're introduced to the Flood for the first time is either less visually striking or just missing entirely, and everything is so well-lit it kinda kills the atmosphere. You even have the "toggle graphics" button right there to instantly see how dramatic the difference is.

I'm just trying to go through life without looking stupid.

It's not working out too well...

I've been thinking about getting the Master Chief Collection from Steam, but I'm waiting for them to release all the games in the collection, and hopefully patch up the sound issues I heard about.

It doesn't look Halo 5 comes with the pack, but Halo Infinite is coming to Steam as well.

I played Halo 1 and 2 over at a neighbor's house years ago, both in multiplayer and co-op, but I never played any of them from beginning-to-end.

They patched the sound issues when they added Halo 3 back in July.

The big issue now is that campaign co op play is peer to peer and seems to make the game engines poo poo the bed. Also halo 3's multiplayer hit detection is terribke because it can't properly account for framerates above 30fps

Which coincidentally got a lot of wind taken out of its sails when Overwatch was announced like six months after it. Then Microsoft bought it and had no crossplay for accounts so your progress was different on the Windows store version than like, Steam.

I liked that game. It deserved better.

I really adored their take on Batman completely discarding the "Bruce is just a mask" stuff. Like it's not inherently bad, but one it tends to land better in JL stuff where he's contrasted with Superman and two it had kinda been the default for ages. So Telltale's much more human take was incredibly refreshing and let them do stuff like the above which was just

yeah, i liked telltales take on batman and the joker, i do like that the joker while having a hosed up side is also clearly ill and is just looking for a role model and a friend. its interesting and different. i like different interpratations of characters and poo poo. like some blow like with "lets make batman a facist" or "lets make superman an kinda of an objectivist" but many are cool and interesting.

good video. i find it sad that in my opinion, cops/marines/etc miss the point of the punisher. like yeah their is a "grim badass who sends the monsters to hell because spiderman is a cowarly pussy" type poo poo but my take is he is just a super broken dude who is basicaly killing monsters(deserving or not) until he either gets killed/dies or he fucks up and tops himself or he somehow "succeeds" and than he tops himself. I always felt warhammers 40ks Night Haunter was a nice disection of the "grim avenger" thing better than the punisher. i am saying this as a punisher fan or at least the ennis lines.

Especially given Frank's roots in the 70's 'broken man seeks vengeance' genre he was never meant as an inspirational figure but God knows in the 80's that sold big. Honestly getting an ongoing series was a mistake.

i like the netflix punisher because they treat the fascist fantasy of the punisher as a villain and when we’re supposed to see him as a hero he’s fighting a corrupt system. They’re hard to recommend (daredevil s2 where he’s introduced blows especially) but i enjoyed them for what they were

It's a tough pick versus Garth Ennis' Punisher MAX, but I think Netflix Punisher might be my favourite take on the character. It puts work into establishing how Frank thinks and functions that a lot of other takes on the Punisher don't. Plus, much better villains than he gets to take on in the comics most of the time.

i like ennis Punisher because he is basicaly if batman killed criminals where everything is meticiously planned and counter plans and poo poo. like when he kills those three vigilantes he gets mad at the lefty vigilante not for killing the big buessness monsters but because he was a sloppy psycho who basicaly killed innocent folks as well because he used heavy ordinance in office buildings and such and it killed a bunch of unrelated people.

'Welcome Back Frank' is probably the only mainstream Punisher book you never need to read. Even Ennis' other work with Punisher in the mainstream MU is kinda bad. (By which I mean not MAX before anybody says anything.)
