Question of the Day: What is your favorite fantasy/sci-fi city?

    Probably cities I've enjoyed exploring in games. Baldur's Gate springs to mind obviously. For sci-fi, maybe Taris in KotOR.

    For pure aesthetics, Silvermoon City in WoW.

    Sadrith Mora, from Morrowind.

    Not sure about Sci-Fi though

Halo 2 was good. Pacing of the campaign was very strange. I actually thought the Arbiter sections were more well-executed.

    I agree. Killing the Heretics was probably the closest you get to being the bad guy. I was actually. Disappointed with the build-up to an elite-human team-up. All in all, I still think that was the stronger storyline of the game, and could have been its own installment.

    The Arbiter is the main protagonist of H2, it's still coming as a shock to some people all these years later.

    Yeah, he definitely is. Even though it would be risky, I think he would have benefitted from having the full game.

As of today, Zenith is officially in my top 10 video game swords.

    I'd read about it on the wiki, so I was very excited to finally craft it.

    I was not prepared for how awesome this thing is.

    So far, it's pretty good, going in blind.I'm enjoying the Arbiter side of the story.

*dusts off Terraria* It has been a while, and there is much preparation to get done before May 16th.

Beat Halo CE. I used to think it was just a game adaptation of Aliens, but it was a lot more.

    @Spark I’m looking forward to comparing them. I’ve played a little bit of all the campaigns, but Halo 2 the least.

    @scorp, yeah, they definitely lifted a ton of characters, some designs, and story beats. I think what story fresh for me was how they mixed the James Cameron main cast with an Arthur C. Clarke setting with deep-time and sacred themes.

    Sergeant Johnson was downright copy-pasted from Aliens though. And the elites are basically xenomorph-predators.

    Yeah, I've played Halo 2 the least as well. Played Halo 3 like crazy and played Halo 1 basically to death. I think I memorized every inch of most of the Halo 1 levels, re-playing them again and again with my bro & sis on co-op. Such a fun game.

Playing Halo CE. I gotta say, I like the O.G. Graphics a lot. More haunting.

    You'll be surprised by the Halo 2 update on MCC.

    @Spark It looks like it'll be good! I'm excited to see how it turns out.

    @Scorp: I think there's also a case to be made for the simplicity for aesthetic and gameplay reasons. Like, I find that the original game is a lot less noisy and realist; more like stylized, like an old sci-fi book cover. Also, for me, its a lot easier to play, since I'm color deficient.

You know, if Beamdog ever ported Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 1 & 2 to PC, I might even be willing to forgive a few of their previous heresies.

More Siege Tank updates! Also as another update, I got my beta code to Hero Forge's coloring tool for minis, so I might drop so screenshots and a review at somepoint.

    Liked and commented, friend. I got my code as well, looking forward to coloring a design I'd already started.
