I haven't posted on HaloGAF much recently, but between RE6 and MoH beta I feel like I've had my face smashed in by gaming, and I need some kind of salvation. Please don't let me down 343.

That said, I really liked the first episode of FUD. I had fears it was going to be a complete disaster, so I'm so glad to be pleasantly surprised by it. I mean, that was better than Revolution, a show on a major network with certainly a higher budget. So good show!

Man that MoH demo is poop but RE6 isn't much better. EA should really just focus all their efforts toward Battlefield and drop that crap MoH.

FUD was extremely better then I anticipated. Looking forward to next weeks episode.

We call them Life Mods around here, but yeah pretty much.


edit-


People using m.neogaf.com, can you see avatars? They've not been showing for more than a week for me on the cellphone.
Did you somehow toggle off the avatar option in your prefs? I don't see them but I've disabled them and autohid GIFs and images.

That was it, I completely forgot this thing had its own settings. No clue how I managed to turn them off though. Thanks!

It really pains me to say this, but without going into depressing details let me just tell you that things have gotten extremely dangerous for tourists around these parts lately. I wouldn't recommend the visit, not in the near future at least.

I know many people in HaloGAF bought Borderlands 2, but did anyone else get bored of it really quickly? I reached level 12 and I am over it.

I'm probably just a terrible person :(

Are we sure thats Marathon? Damn shame that whatever it was the plug was pulled. =(

does anyone know how this works.. is one cap one games worth or something...
Its all on www.DewXp.com but I believe one 20oz cap gets you 3 matches of doublexp. You can redeem up to 200 matches of doublexp per GT.
 
Hehehe... I totally saw this while Feel Good Inc. was playing on Pandora. :) Good stuff.

Totally pumped for Dishonored. Hopefully that and the forge challenge will keep me a bit distracted until launch. Ease the wait if you will.

I am on the exact same boat, I stopped at level 12 as well.
It's not really that I am completely bored of it, just that I don't want to waste time on it anymore.

20 oz = 3 double XP matches
12 pack = 6 double XP matches
24 pack = 12 double XP matches

Doritos
2.75 oz & 3.875 oz Bags - 3 double XP Matches
11.5 oz bag - 12 double XP matches.

Also it looks like if you enter a dew and a doritos code at the same time it multiplies by 2.

I'm at the EB Games Expo in Australia waiting in line to play Halo 4. Walshy and Strongside are here and you can play 1v1 against them in Reach for $1000... Going to give it a go.

If you do it at the same time is 200 still the maximum match count? For example if I did:

20 oz Game Fuel + 11.5 oz Doritos = 2 * (3 + 12) = 30 matches

By that logic if I did that 10 times I could get 300 matches. Or would it make more sense to only do it 7 times for ~210 matches?

EDIT: Maths. If you want to get technical it'd be the most efficient to do:
24 pack + 11.05 oz for a whopping 144 matches, and then either a 20 oz Game Fuel + 11.5 oz bag OR a 24 pack + a 2.75 oz bag for 72 more matches, only going over by 16. This would come out to around $25 USD.

I hope you mean the prize is $1000, and not that you'd have to pay $1000 to play them. Cause that seems like a misappropriation of funds to me if it's the latter.

I read it that way at first too and went "Wow, what a waste of money."

How does that work? Im guessing ultimately there can only be one winner? I.e. If you beat one of them your put into a pool and a random winner is chosen im guessing?

If they are going to give that money away to one person regardless of how many people win, might aswell do the tourney on Halo 4 lol.

Hey, I found a FUD Carbine!



Pretty awesome, I guess we will get to see the humans use the Covenant weapons... Hm, I wonder if they will have someone supercombine? I'm sure that would look violent as hell on film, haha.

You just register and get to play either Walshy or Strongside. Everyone who wins gets $1000 doesn't matter how many.

No time for jokes. Seriously how can you not know who they are.

Edit: And being fat now means your terrible at video games. Hahaha I know you're joking now, hopefully.
The fat thing was unintentional, actually. I posted them because of the names "Strong sad" and "Welshy"


Home Star Runner is pretty old in terms of the internet, why are you surprised?
I don't...what? Are you trying to imply I'm too old to know who Strongside and Walshy are?
