      Teaching your girlfriend to play Reach.

      in Forums > Teaching your girlfriend to play Reach. | Follow this topic

      There are few of us lucky enough to have girlfriends that are willing to learn to play our beloved Halo, let alone to have them approach us with the idea. But once they have, what then? The control scheme and controller are second nature to those of us who've gamed since we started sucking down oxygen, but to someone who's barely picked up Mario Kart, the concept of "aim and move at the same time" is a little daunting.

      That said, I was wondering what tips you all have for teaching someone to play Halo from scratch. My friend and I were thinking about Forging a map that teaches different control concepts (jumping course, target range, warthog track, etc.) but if something like that already exists, I'd love to know.

      w00t! Finally I'm a legal adult. Voting, lotto tickets, all that great stuff. And my girlfriend and I are legal now. (Technically, we were legal by Missouri law, but now we're legal pretty much everywhere).

      Wait, you expected me to want the cigarettes and porn?

      Yawn

      Soooo I haven't updated in forever. For all none of you that are wondering about my Star Wars sprites, yeah I work on em every once in a while, but I haven't released anything and don't intend to. They are really perdy though.

      Anyway so I'm in 4th quarter senior year now so I'm kickin back and waiting for graduation. I'll be at Benedictine College next year, so if on the off chance you are too, send me a PM. I uploaded a few pictures of me; it's about damn time considering how long I've been on here. Peace people.

      Oh and I got a 360 and Live so add me if you wanna.

      Hypothetically...

      9 years ago

      *Yawn* I guess I've been in a hibernation of sorts around here. Visit daily, just no posts.

      Anyway, I was wondering, hypothetically, if I were to make Clone/Storm troopers (every single kind, from ARC trooper to Snowtrooper) and offer them in the same manner as halo sprites. Granted, this fad has come and gone. But I enjoy making 'em and it takes my mind off of other matters. In fact I might just be (theoretically) making Mandalorians as well. If you don't know what a Mandalorian is, it's the race the wears the armor Jango and Boba Fett wear.

      I've barely started, but I'm having a lot of fun. My work with the Halo sprites has helped my learn a lot, and the sprites I'm doing now are completely original. I use the pose and general position of the Halo: Resolution sprites as inspiration, and because I've worked with them so much that it's natural to me.

      Anyway I just wanted to know who would be interested in seeing em. I have absolutely no income of mods so I need something new to sell. I'll be posting a tiny bit of my work later

      SHIT

      Well I opened up my sprite sheet today to find that I accidentally turned every pixel on it that was black to white. So now I have to go redraw every single outline on my sprites. Oh joy.

      Making my own new master chief.

      9 years ago

      I've finally begun making my own master chief sprite, based on the Halo:Resolutions sprite but completely redone with more detail by me. Wish me luck. So far, I have a foot...

      Star Wars and Pirates

      9 years ago

      How did my day go, you ask? Well let me tell you, Mr. Concerned Citizen. I woke up at 9:50, I put on some pants, then I drove to the mall, which opens at 10:00. I arrived at 10:01, and paid the rest of the money for my preordered copy of Star Wars Episode III. I then returned home and played Half-Life 2*** for about 20 minutes until my girlfriend got here. We then watched Episode III, along with the deleted scenes (all of which Lucas should have kept smiley4.gif ) What good fortune do I have to find a woman that loves Star Wars as much as me.

      ***3 asteriks (I totally spelled that wrong) you say? Why yes! That means I have a story about Half-Life 2. I went and bought a copy of the Collector's Edition for 40 bucks (a good deal) at CompUSA. I get home, I open it, I install it, and I open up Steam to put in my CD Key. And I find out that some asshole had already bought that copy, taken the CD key, and returned it. SOOOOOOOOOO I return the game, buy a new copy from Wal-Mart for 50 bucks, and now I've spent a few hours playing already. So to the asshole who pirated my original copy, fuck you. You dirty, dirty asshole.

      Your song

      9 years ago

      Okay I'm not one to be very sappy but I'm coming up on one month with my gf and I'm just falling in love with her every day. So my question is: do you and your bf/gf have like a "song", and if so, what is it and why.

      Mine is kinda getting to be "You and me" by Lifehouse. Never heard of em before but my gf and I were at our first dance together and the song (obviously slow) came on and we just grabbed each other and danced. For some reason the lyrics just struck me as perfect for us. So I've had it stuck in my head for a week since the dance and think about her whenever I think about it.

      Your turn.

      And PS: If I can get as sappy and open as above, so can you.
