Halo 4 bringing the Battle Rifle back, introducing unlockable abilities in progression system {Joystiq}

Mar 5th 2012 4:37PM @ColorblindMonk

i didn't say anything about tinkering with graphics settings, if 343 doesn't improve the graphics at all from this vid we saw today until launch, i'd be perfectly fine with that, i think it looks good as is.

and i dont mind it being on 1 platform, i just dont want crappy frame rates from the xbox 360. hell, i'd take a few steps back in graphics from halo reach to have at least native 720p and locked 60fps.

i was hoping the next xbox would have been out for halo 4, maybe still could? e3 2012?...

i would prefer keyboard mouse, but i dont mind the xbox 360 controller

i would want halo 4 on pc mainly for better hardware.

no, not on pc for B3tTeR GR4Fix, just a better frame rate and resolution. i hated the dips down to what had to have been >10fps in halo reach on some of the maps.

thats why i was hoping halo 4 would have been on the next xbox or pc purely for a stable 60fps and at least native 1080p, though not necessarily better graphics.

Mar 5th 2012 11:05AM looks cool, i know its very early stage graphics, but they could keep them like that and not a single fuk would be given... they are already good enough imo. i don't demand "photo-realism," really any art style is cool to me, as long as good lighting (which looks like they already have) and just add a little to the environment textures.

but this being shitty xbox 360 hardware brings up my MAIN concern when it comes to "graphics/stuff-thats-not-actual-gameplay" which is the damn frame rate and resolution. i liked reach a lot, but damn that shitty 540p upscaled bullshit with what felt like dips down to 10fps on those forge world maps, wtf is this capped at 30fps? so glitchy feeling.

also another thing i read is no dual wielding? WHY? that was awesome in halo 2, i loved the ability to mix and match combos of single hand weapons, it was awesome. dual magnums, a magnum and a smg, smg/plasma rifle, magnum/plasma pistol charged, dual smgs to be a walking turret, etc, and yet it was all still balanced with the br and sniper etc still being better at certain engagements/ranges.

Dec 1st 2011 3:30PM welldead,

focus on your overall body composition rather than earth's gravitational pull on your body's mass (weight)... buy some cheap body fat calipers and measure yourself to find out where you are

15% body fat is a healthy % that all males can shoot for. you could go lower down to 12% where, statistically, you should be able to see abdominal definition in a relaxed state with normal lighting conditions (i.e.: not a myspace angle/lighting)

if you are already in the 12-15% bf range (legitimately 12-15% that is, use some calipers for real, or even better if you have access to be hydrostatic weighed) you could attempt to get to 8-11.9% bf, but single% bf is very difficult for most. also, put on dat dere muscle mass! everyone can benefit from more muscle mass; bigger faster stronger.

Dec 1st 2011 2:34PM "Many people advise simply giving up hobbies such a gaming altogether when you're embarking upon a serious effort to lose a great deal of weight. How and why have you managed to keep WoW a part of your regular activities?"

video games are one of the better things you can do while training/dieting/etc... as long as you don't deter from your diet and still get your exercise/gym time in.

90% of getting your body to where you want it to be is done OUTSIDE of the gym; it's all about how well/correct you eat and sleep/rest.

spending 4-5 hours in the gym then going out and doing some cardio-esque hobby/activity will overtrain your muscles and burn you out quick, I.E.: january gym new-years-resolutionists.

all you really need is 45-60min in the gym, work out intense, bust your ass, then do a good 15 min of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) after the gym. beyond that you will see the most results from being consistent with your diet, disciplined in your training/gym time, and disciplined in a regular sleeping pattern of >=8hours.

Pain of regret or the pain of discipline, you decide.

Dec 1st 2011 2:23PM great weight loss success story.

i am glad to see that he corrected the mistake of starving himself at 1000cal/day... that is unhealthy and you'll lose a ton of muscle mass.

speaking of muscle mass; anyone who is trying to lose weight, 'bulking' (eating more than you burn) for a month or two, with the intent to gain muscle mass, (so just eat 500-1000cal more than you burn/day) right before you 'cut' (eating at a deficit) will help increase your metabolism. think of it as increasing your engine from a 250cc to a 1000cc... you'll require more gas(calories) and thus your base metabolic rate will increase.

also, i wouldn't cut weight at more than a 1500cal/day deficit or you will end up with a lot of left over skin. the best scenario to lose a lot of weight (100+ pounds) would be to cut ~30lbs over the period of 2 months, then stop try to 'clean bulk' (bulk eating very clean) for a month or so to try to gain some more muscle mass (2-5 pounds) and strength. after that quick 1 month bulk repeat your cutting phase for another 2 months to try to lose another ~30lbs.

TLDR:
you want to try to gain some muscle mass too, it will be easy for most of you as you will see "noob gains" extremely quick

Nov 29th 2011 9:21AM "When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up."

real talk^

reminds me of these stupid miller light commercials "dude thats the 2nd unmanly thing you've done today"

who the hell cares? a man's personal taste/opinions are his own, not yours, and not a single fuxx was given if you disagree. the third "unmanly thing" he guy does in that commercial is caring what his boyfriends think.

girly men these days...
