Confessions of a racing noob in Forza 5

Yup, I bought this game as my first game acquisition for XB1. I bought it because I wanted something to fill in time between the real games I play like Halo 4, TITANFAL, Destiny and the next Halo (teasing, a bit). It seems like the kind of game I can just pick up and beat around a track, then walk away from for months.

Spartan “I Am LM2” has been listed as MIA.

My dear friends and companions, I am saddened to hear of the passing of our Halo buddy in arms “I Am LM2”. In real life his name is Larry McGowan.

Firstly, if they are able to read this, I want to extend my condolences to his family. I know, from the years of comments and background chatter over the Ethernet, Larry loved and was loved by his family. They sure sounded like great people to know. I feel they must be hurting badly right now. I wish for them the continuity of good memories of Larry to console them throughout their lives.

Seven months of SURFACING.

Seven months of SURFACING.

I’ve had my SURFACE RT since November 2012. I thought it was time to give a little update on it since I wrote my review of it.

Forging Ancient Structures on a New World

Well, I'm going to be at it again. Halo 4 is out next week and I want to build something in Forge.

The "something" will likely be a rebuild of my REACH Megalith map with requisite upgrades.

I've already begun investigating improvements to the original Megalith construction. I started by not being a cheap-ass gamer. I bought "SOLVING STONEHENGE, The New Key to an Ancient Enigma", 2008 by Anthony Johnson. This book is chalk full of ancient surveying techniques, real surveys, photographs, diagrams and logical insight into the construction of Stonehenge.

Clanless Halo on 2old2play

I'm trying an experiment for Halo. It doesn't involve Clans. It does involve any member who wants to play Halo in a specified way and in a specified time slot.

If you check out the Halo Series forum there is a post where I describe what I am trying to do.

Playing with Playlist Charts

Before I get going I should show you the overall population numbers during the project period.

In this chart you can see the total number of Unique Users in 24 hours for all playlists. Also included are the total number of players online at 8:00pm Eastern. You will notice that the peaks align with weekends and valleys align with mid-week. Also noticeable is that the general population was higher at the beginning of the month, stabilizing slightly lower and then a dip at the end. The dip aligns very well with the GEARS 3 Beta and the COD Black Ops map pack release.

My Adventure with the TEAM CLASSIC playlist.

When I first read about the TEAM CLASSIC playlist and associated CLASSIC MAP remakes, I was a bit concerned. Here was Bungie actively giving support to the desires of a group of people who would return HALO REACH to the stone age if they could. I was kind of pissy about it actually. So pissy in fact, it spurred me to start collecting daily population statistics for that playlist and another one called ACTION SACK. I figured I'll post the results and show "them" what happens when you put up a playlist that caters to a HALO minority.

MEGALITH's fiction.

If there is one thing that attracts me to a multiplayer map, it's that it has a recognizable theme. Something to set it apart from the rest of the pack. Something to help you remember it. That's why I tend to like Bungie's maps over anything else. Each map tells a story. They are grounded in some kind of Halo fiction.
