Does anyone else miss the Windows XP boot up sound?

I could have had my house destroyed on Christmas. Texas got hit pretty hard.
Are you guys ready for the year of the Linux desktop?
Yeah, and apparently Android is also going to ditch the Java base programming for applications, or at least the core ones. Dunno why I pointed this out.
I wasn't saying that in an accusatory tone...
It's simply way too easy to exploit the REQ system, in spite of its frustrating yields.
Apparently this is aggressive and offends people. Oops.
Countdown would really work with the Halo 5 forge aesthetic, but yeah, scaling is god awful.
Apparently Android-N Series (Nutella, Nougat, whatever) is already in the works and will, allegedly, ditch Java support.
Thoughts? Could Android be significantly lighter on the requirements?

I really hope this supposed DECIMATOR armor coming next year (likely January or even February) actually looks like a Mark VI successor as it was inferred.
"Closest to the Mark VII"
It just wasn't anatomically plausible seeing the mark VI without its space diaper in Halo 4. They got it right with the Mark IV, V, and VI in Halo 5.
Bronze has some decent resell value to be honest, to assume you aren't actually using the items provided. Wish I kept it simple beforehand.

I had enough of Doctor Carrington being a selfish whiny asshole, so I killed him and everyone else at the HQ, then proceeded to stuff their bodies into the stone caskets.

Thought this might be a cool thread to bump now that people have unlocked a ton more customization.
I managed to get Raijin through Bronze-Spamming.
I don't even. None of the new armor and hardly any interesting bits and pieces are even in Bronze Packs aside from Visors.

Been having a lot of customers come into to Best Buy complaining about the surface they bought; don't know if it's user error or the machine actually sucks, but I thought I'd relay the message.
It's the Surface Book that has the most problems, Surface Pro is getting quicker fixes for its holiday-rush bugs, but the Book is experiencing delays.
There's very little incentive to buying first gen anything in the 2010's, and the Surface Book is not a better investment than the SP4 right now.
Too bad because it has a lot of promise, at least the second gen Book will have a likely better execution.
But how many dank memes were posted in 2015?
The year "Nice Meme" invaded Beyond, I'm going to be lazy and pull a number out of thin air I'll be right back.
Getting one of these as a writing/drawing tool. I am way too broke for a Surface right now.

I managed to build a few shack structures. Two of them being freebase, and one made with prefab sectioning. I am keeping the single story shelter for me, Preston, and other important Minutemen. I built a two story shack for everyone else, possibly making the upstairs into an infirmary of sorts if that's possible. I built one lowly turret and installed a defense post right next to it. The prefab building will be a store at some point.
All in all I think crafting shelters and setting up defenses are quite fun. There needs to be a few improvements, like removing misc. vegetation and loose stone. If Bethesda are generous enough to fix/add anything like that it'll be very much appreciated.
Fallout fans of Beyond, had anyone bothered to fortify a settlement to its fullest yet? I am running out of productive tasks in this game and am attempting to make something out of Sanctuary Hills.

So I beat Fallout 4 and...
Honestly there'd been worse endings in a AAA game (not that I have to list examples from this year *cough cough*), but I've figured out that the Railroad are the buggiest faction in this game yet, as far as the console versions are concerned. At one moment I was close to siding with the institute and primed to take on the Brotherhood of Steel, who I find to be quite the pompous douchebags. What stopped from happening was I couldn't exit the Institute after siding with Father, not doing things in order can glitch quests badly. As for the 'ending', I am absolutely certain this isn't the true ending at all.

Iridescent patterns on Armor would be a nice feature too.
If you mean for emblems, I totally get that. I mean, I "sorta" get what 343i went for with emblem customization this time as a sort of "new twist" but it was unneeded. Towards purple; don't. Don't "buff" purple. Give us ACTUAL purple. What we have now, isn't purple.
I really wish Red (team color) was darker in this game.

What is the most efficient playlist for grinding REQ points?
I've got a decent yield off BTB, other than that I've had unspectacular yields with everything else available outside of Warzone. :/

Spartan Company Commendation REQ pack
Spartan Company Commendation REQ pack
I love the 'sell REQ' option. Kept me sane during my darkest hours in Halo 5.
I enjoyed doing this in Halo 2, especially when someone would rage like a crybaby.

Yeah I think Indie developers need an independent platform after the OUYA project lead scammed everyone.
I don't get why all the better Gaming Kickstarters go to the dogs. I was looking forward to the Arduboy, but of course the project head doesn't understand that you need to set up shipping and handling before even releasing a product, or delays bottleneck the whole manufacturing process.
I still don't get how Bronze packs generate anything above Common (unlocked basic RAIJIN armor). Permanent or otherwise. Not that I'm complaining.
Must be a lucky glitch.
