Damn, I cant believe I forgot to upload this. A commission from a few months back that took for freaking ever--whoever fabricated MJOLNIR armor clearly had a hate on for artists. Overall I really like how it came out, though in hindsight I think there's too much glow happening everywhere. Eh.
Thoughts on Halo 4? Sure, it was okay. It got major points for having a story that was more an emotional experience rather than the usual militant documentary of Master Chef's badassery. It wasn't genius like Silent Hill 2, but it got the message across well while still appealing to the ShakyCam HeavyBloom connoisseur. Gameplay was adequate but most of the new weapons just felt like the obligatory New Species Pistol Shotgun Rocket Launcher Assault Rifle Grenade kit. And while I liked the overall idea for the Prothean weapons they just looked and felt all the same. Some of the human weapons did this, too--the whole purpose of having new weapons is to make something different. This isnt Call of Duty (though CoD's stinking prints are all over the game) where all the guns essentially do the same thing. This is science fiction. I'm not asking for a gun that shoots rainbow hamsters, as cool as that is, I'm just asking for some little freaking variety.
Cortana irks me a bit, too. It still pisses me off that the devs felt they had to tack on some breast and butt padding with each game just to 'enhance her appeal.' No, the fine cut of her ass introduced in later games wasnt a result of improved graphics, it was for the fanboys.
Hey. I have no problem with eye candy. I have no problem with strong female characters in skimpy outfits, as long as they are, indeed, strong female characters and not the watered-down gruff and hostile action babes most movies seem to thing women are. I do have a problem with Cortana going from a spunky and moderately-proportioned sidekick to a boner-inducing big-titted damsel in three damn games. Sure, they seemed to have scaled her face back from smoking hot to something a little more plain in 4, but her body is even more pornstar-tastic and it's language is submissive. I know she's having a few mental problems, game, but you dont need to make her stand there like she's waiting to be hit by her pimp.
