  1. Nope. 60+ on BO3, Doom 2016, Champions, MCC, any Vale title, Skyrim, Fallout 4, DS3, Siege, any of the new Wolfensteins, UT4, etc. All I'm running is a GTX 1070 with an i5 6600 and 16 gigs of ram. And even if settings are on say high rather than max it's still way better than anything I've played on console.
  2. I've been running the same 900$ build since 2015 with no upgrades and can still play most things at max settings. Dedicating half a day's worth of work to the big boy equivalent of a Lego set is worth the near flawless 5+ year return. Better everything, no subscriptions, every plus of a PC. Stop wasting money and invest you cowards.
  3. "More affordable" = Barely. The extra few hundred is worth it anyway for both the quality and longevity. Modern consoles are low-end PCs without all the benefits of also being a PC. Nowadays people purchase the same peripherals no matter the platform bar a mouse and keyboard too. "All-in-one UI" = This is basically a non-issue, especially since the Xbox UI is janky garbo. The most you'd have to do is swap launchers for certain games, which barely matters since it's both easy and uncommon due to the majority of the time you'll be on Steam. The desktop is your all-in-one UI. "Pick-up and play capacity" = Never really understood this one. Boot times are almost identical with PCs having the potential to boot faster. My PC has Windows on a basic hard disc and either boots up around the same time or faster than my One X. SSDs are very common nowadays and no doubt provide way faster boot and general load times. After that you just go to your library or click on your desktop icons. "Easy to setup" = Also never really got this one. I could understand if you're building it yourself or you commonly travel and want to bring your system, but past that general sit-down play is pretty much the same. If you couch game casually and want to play on a giant flat screen then sure a console is easier to squeeze somewhere and navigate with a gamepad. If you play on a monitor and or play sitting up close at a desk or something there is no excuse. You plug in the same amount of shit. "Game Pass" = I guess. This one is mainly preference though in all honesty I prefer Steam sales. Bigger library and you actually own what you buy no matter what. I could make this post 3x longer to go over all the advantages but we all know that stuff by now.
  4. It's a possibility since the latest flight snuck forge monitor models into the files alongside a bunch of other stuff from H3.
  5. no guys it'd be a sweet bungie reference
  6. Are we seriously at the point where H3 players are being called boomers?
  7. That comment chain is one of the worst things I've read in a while.
  8. Nah idc they helped Buck and Romeo link up with Dutch and Mickey. They also have cool armor.
  9. Must have hit you by an inch. Could be wrong but you can see the tip of what seems to be a back-holstered weapon near the middle of the corner.
  10. Didn't know Bungie said that too, that's pretty dumb. Guess 343 wins this round.
  11. Reminder that 343 flipped the terminology which only makes the discussion in the Halo community unnecessarily more confusing.
  12. I grinded the gold skins in unmodified Heroic Classic Firefight because I am just that bored.
  13. Personally I liked BO2's AA levels, they are noticeably lower than the CoDs before and after. BO3 having no AA on snipers was also a pretty good call.
  14. Even a little "343 Approved" sticker with a possible pin on the browser for a privately run server would do so much.
  15. What a great addition to the conversation thanks for the input. EDIT: Nice to know the post with actual substance and time put in gets yeeted for no real reason. This is why I don't take forum mods seriously.
  16. Where in that sentence did I say people can't enjoy playing what they want to play (at least I think that's what your rambling is referring to I honestly can't tell)? What you quoted is addressing the need to feel confident in what you make and not sacrifice your authenticity to appeal to a majority. That's like telling devs they should make their games completely vapid on purpose in order to appeal to as many people as possible. Are you seriously telling me it doesn't matter what the person making the game thinks so long as the majority accepts it? Reamis (Arlong), dude, I get your shtick is to be as absolutely oblivious as possible. I don't personally find it very funny, more sad if anything, but my God is what you've been saying a whole new level of brain dead. Like, you mind enlightening us on what we're doing wrong with our custom settings? I'm honestly interested, because as far as I'm concerned the majority is going to favor the main game first and foremost. Custom settings, especially ones made to speed up the game and make it more competitive, are meant to appeal to a minority from the get-go. Why the fuck would you tamper with the original intentions of what you're making to grab a few more sets of eyes? The people you're literally trying to appeal to are more than likely already satisfied with what they're playing. Which again, I need to reiterate to you that competitive community settings are specifically made for those who favor the values and intentions put forth by the creator and whatever they are inspired by. This has been the case since the beginning of MLG. Do you not understand that many variations of settings have gotten the attention of pros and semi-pros alike? It's very likely those settings in question are completely different from the base game which is the entire point of their creation (not agreeing with design decisions made by devs like weapons, movement, maps, etc.). Why would people who practice the base game want to overhaul something to the point of it being almost entirely different? News flash; it's more than likely not what they signed up for. In the past, competitive players of all ranges from run-of-the-mill to pro appreciate the effort and understand what the project's primary goals are. You can still support something without wanting it to take over the entire game. Community settings have never been made to solely gain the support of pros. If the project becomes popular as a result of that attention that's fantastic, but it certainly isn't something considered in the design process. Maybe this is where the disconnect arises, because it seems you've spawned this idea that we close ourselves off on purpose. This is not true. We open our arms to as many people as possible to stop by and give what's made a try. If they don't like it, fine, they can go back to what they were enjoying before. If they do, great, they can continue playing and have a swell time. Creating a supported playlist and or receiving shout-outs from developers and prominent figures alike to maximize potential players are welcome down the line, but it shouldn't directly influence the content being made purely for the sake of those things. These "niche" settings are by design made to be different from what's expected, people with moderate thinking skills understand this. No creator is going to willingly sacrifice integrity to gain extra downloads; it defeats the entire purpose of its initial creation.
  17. Throwdown v5 (or just v5 settings). Mostly everything could be found under Ghostayame's GT. Unofficially there's the Top Mid/EU no sprint settings that were made at the tail end of H4 but even I can't find where to get those files.
  18. I really enjoyed reading this. I just shared it with two of my friends who don't typically go out of their way to read in-depth stuff like this but are interested in the topic.
  19. Soul we're on Team Beyond not the death screen of a CoD campaign.
