Since I’m very busy with real life I rarely get to take Screenshots anymore. That makes me very sad but hey, that is how it is. As I am typing this at 7 am in the morning (I am awake since 6 am) my daughter is messing with my Halo collection in the back. She is really fascinated by the UNSC bottle opener. If that is telling me something about her future I am scared 🙂
Well here are 4 shots I managed to take lately:
What the lamp is for the moth, the Splinter Grenade is for the Spartan. Countless times have I witnessed as my teammates or the enemy could not resist the urge to run into the aftermath of the Splinter Grenade. I assume it goes down like this: Spartan John Doe fights tooth and nail to win the duel with the red dude who comes at him with brute force. He manages to evade the Shotgun and throws a Splinter Grenade right at the enemy. Red dude vanishes to ashes and John Doe can’t help but let out a deep sigh. Gosh that was close. My shields are almost drained, the alarm is beeping like crazy…I need health! Over there. It sparkles. It looks like an orb, no, many orbs. Could it be? Could it be a health orb? I want to touch it. I am going in….ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…..pooooooooooooof.
Obviously I have been John Doe myself. But come on. Only in the beginning. When I didn’t know about the deadly aftermath of the Splinter Grenade. Now I know and I shake my head and sigh deeply, when once again, one of my teammates runs like a headless chicken right into the middle of the sparkling orbs. The sighing and head shaking quickly turns into red hot anger though, when the announcer mockingly snarls: Betraaaaayed. AS IF!!! AS IF!!! How can I be made responsible for the stupidity of my teammates? Hooooooow? (echoes endlessy).
Today I want to share some of my new Screenshots. Two of them are made on a forged map but the others are just early ones from when Forge wasn’t released. I have to say I have had big problems with Forge so far. And it’s not the controls like you may think. My problem is that I can’t access my Forge maps in the theater. They just don’t show on either recently played or watch now. I have only been able to watch a gameplay on a forged map once. Hence the 2 Screenshots on Parallax. I don’t know if that was pure luck or something else. The clip didn’t show in recently played, but was available under watch. I find it extremely unnerving that theater isn’t working properly. I was so happy when Forge came out and it looks promising enough. But what good does that do when I can’t access my maps?
I’ll have to wait for the next patch I guess.
Here are some of my recent Halo 4 screenshots. Taken on Daybreak with in game effects Juicy and Colorblind. I think they turned out really great.
