This should be a good place for incriminating/humiliating screenshots as well.


I hadn't thought about this wrinkle of saved films. I do some dumb shit stuff sometimes and I am not very excited about the possibility of somebody else being able to access and share my first person view of it. I'm going to go ahead and let y'all know that sometimes I through grenades that catch walls or overhangs and they bounce back and hurt me and any teammate around me pretty often. I also will get a little trigger happy with the rockets and just shoot at the opposing team with total disregard of the proximity of my teammates or myself are to where I am shooting. I really can't go into all the DA stuff I do, just limit the amount of "can you believe tex is that bad" talk por favor

I realize this may well be known, but I did not know you could create a setting in Forge, and then save it as a map and play straight-up custom games on it. Frank confirmed this on GAF.

I had thought we would be limited to "honor rules" games, as was said in the EGM article. The example Frank uses - building barricades of stuff around the entrances on High Ground in an Infection game, with the humans trapped on the inside, is a simple yet compelling example.

Forge combined with the insane custom game options are going to open a can of infinite win.

OMG. Forge owns my face off.

The possibilities with teleporters, weapons, objects, vehicles, game rules, player traits, spawn points, special custom items (a grav lift that never expires) are literally infinite.

Hohoho, I knew that "previous 25 maps" thing was going to have an good use. Very cool, and please Cuse, no need to thank me. It really wasn't a big deal.

Edit: Teleporters and permanent grav lifts?! WTF! omg bungie

I wish there was more. =( It looks like the two default MP models on a campaign level, but hey, maybe it's one of the levels we haven't seen yet. Whatever it is, it looks fucking awesome.

The water in Highground:

(Recorded by me during the Beta for a graphical showcase that never came to light. I'll be uploading everything that I've got over the course of the next few days, so keep an eye on this thread.)

The film is about as raw as it comes, with little editing. Make of it what you will.

No. I can't even get them to start. I'm really sorry, man. =(

Here's the second water video, on Valhalla:

Oh, and complete and total humiliation of Gamble with a pink gun.


Why is it that the Gamble kills are so gratifying. I can remember several games where we would call out that we had killed gamble like he was a wraith or power weapon.

Do you not knowth the tale of Gameightle? He IS a power weapon. I hear he sold his very soul to the devil for his leet skills. And ham based products.

Until you've heard "WHAT THE ---" as the recently departed's radio cuts out after a particularly ridiculous B-X-R, you don't even fully understand the joys of killing Gamble.

Here's a video showcasing the HDR on Highground:

EDIT: Voc has subsequently created an entire sub-forum for this kind of thing. Closed.
