A friend and I have been trying to play Halo 2 Anniversary for the last few days, we're playing over xbone live and just can't get into the game. Either we both time out or one of us gets in and the game starts but the other gets timed out.
If, say, someone else in your house is using that same wifi, it may slow it down. some apartment complexes share one huge internet router, and if a bunch of people were on that at once...I could see things getting slow.
Why do people never go in with their girlfriend/wife/boyfriend/husband? I see no point in going on a adventure with our your mate so long as someone is able to safe guard home base and you don't have I will go in first then pave the way for you type reasons. Why do it in video games, which are like adventured except not only can you actually have them, you can have them with out needing to leave home, their for not needing anyone to guard home base while your out.
it's just that, wikis are where people learn stuff when they're newbie. or, in a lot of cases, when they're bored. I edit when I'm bored because it's that or play xbox for hours. I figure editing is better for my brain, but I feel like I'm stuck in a rut...
You're not very acquainted with Wikia, are you? I spend most of my time on here. Now, I don't know about you, but I'm not a newbie, and I am not bored, either. If I were, I would have so many other things I could do. Still, I choose to be on Wikia.
I was like you once, except the phase of being ashamed to admit I like being on the internet had already ended by then.
Then I met a fox a raptor a ball of lettuce that can talk and change profile photos a sangheili everyone thought died at reach and a human marksmen so good at using a marksmen rifle that he was the first human to impress me.
Then was the golden age of RPG. At first acquiring a hand full of fellow kig-yar as I have fought my battles, then enough to crew a ship, then enough ships to make a fleet, I became a caption, a admiral, then, I became a king.
With my fleet and the help of my allies I became invincible, I felt if I wanted I could rule the galaxy. No one could stop me, I had even conquered a entire heavy cargo fleet with out firing a shot! I had been to forerunner installations, fought every form of sentient being, and formed a alliance with a kig-yar pirate queen.
Then I had founded the terraforming of an asteroid, using the same technology the forerunners had used to give the surface of their installations floating in space a breathable atmosphere.
But then came the dark ages of RPG. Having run out of ships forts and planets to plunder for unimaginable riches I had to give up on warfare, and adapt a more peaceful culture. Hear I am at the height of my great empire, forgotten by ALL, the rest of the galaxy. FORGOTTEN! Having lived the most notorious pirate in the galaxy hear today I am nothing more then a has been.
First, I tried trade, but could not find anyone who needs to buy or sell.
Then I tried farming, but their was a void unfilled, now I simply have more food then I need.
I tried taking up hunting and fishing, but could not find planets with game wild life having been pretty much lost all knowledge where to find such planets I could hunt on.
Mostly I just bing eat the minable resources in my territory just for self entertainment, and fill my time talking to the monkeys.
You think your a loser? you know nothing of being a loser!
I was born an Unggoy. Just a regular, old, Unggoy from Balaho. I slowly watched my family succumb to the Blue Death, and I was next, until...
The Covenant showed up, and offered me a job. they told me that humans were responsible for my family's deaths. So, when they asked me if I wanted revenge, I jumped on the offer.
First of all, they had warmth. It was super warm! The covenant destroyers had unlimited heat. I met lots of other Unggoy.
The world was a burrito. (burritos are yum)
Then they sent me and some other Unggoy against the humans. I killed many...it was fun...
I discovered something though. I had already killed 77 of the UNSC's most elite ODSTs. But...the Covenant was full of lies. My buddy Flipyap revealed that to me...I left the Covenant. That's right, i was a freelancer. I hated everything. I killed anything. I killed...everything. On a raid of a top-secret UNSC base, I found something that could make me big. I took it, and used it to my advantage. I liked stealing human stuff. They had cool things, like vehicles. I once stole something they called a "camera" and used it to take "pictures" of what i'd done.
But, all the killing of other Unggoy made me sad. I settled down on the planet Earth. Everyone was so afraid of me, they didn't even try to kill me. I started editing wikis like this. I love playing Halo. It reminds me of my masquerades as a freelancer.
I have matured long ago, I realize we don't have to be enemies anymore, I realize not all unggoy meet the stereo type we grew up knowing nor are all kig-yar the stereo type unggoy grew up knowing.
But yes, unggoy have murdered mothers and unborn hatchlings, in retaliation kig-yar have sterilized large amounts of unggoy, which lead to the unggoy rebellion as planed, and as planed the sangheili responded to this by glassing Balaho. We however did not expect the sangheili to spare the unggoy in the end and allow them to rebreed, and the fight with the unggoy was meant to serve as a distraction while kig-yar raise enough of a military power to finish over throwing the covenant them selves to insure never again will the covenant let other life forms dispatch kig-yar nest with no regard for our young. However this plan came crashing down when rippa moram'ee killed the leader of the kig-yar insurrection prince Kirth.
I am very much aware of this. But if humanity is capable of making peace with the sangheili, are kig-yar and unggoy really no better then them? My most prized commodore is friends with a unggoy, my mate can tolerate the presence of one before her throne, why then can not I be friends with unggoy? Yes I use to refer to them as "chew toys" but the past is the past right? If we don't learn to move on, then conflict will only continue until one of us wipes out the other.
It turns out it's not welcomed to have pictures in threads. Didn't really know that until Haloprov let me know...i really don't see the harm, but I guess there's a reason if he left me a message about it.
I saw the harm when I started looking up photos and saw they linked directly to the wikia I posted them on even when I used imgur. But oh well. I gtg I have wasted enough days letting the starlight of day not shine on me.
If your really as big as you say you should be able to feed 400 kig-yar. We have invented stew, the original recipe for kig-yar stew was made from unggoy and fed to kig-yar.
But like Chol-von I am procivilization, and over the years I have been taught that eating other sentient life forms is a disgusting abomination. But then again humanity has the most accomplishments in the modern galaxy, so I don't think logic was ever meant to apply anyway, I suppose we may as well go back to eating each other.
When unggoy where found you hadn't even invented nuclear physics yet. and you have already you have demonstrated you have not heard of a camera, something that once did not even require electricity, and you have not discovered salt, a resource that is one of the most obtainable in mineral deposits through out the universe.
Kig-yar on the other hand have colonized asteroids by the time the covenant had found us, but unfortunately we had no military, so we didn't stand a chance. But that was in the 13 hundreds, humanity was still trying to figure out "weee gun powdah go boom boom".
But now humanity has slip space technology far superior to everyone else, and are able to go to the ark with out even opening a portal like the ones in new Mombasa. Eventually they will decide they no longer have use for the sangheili, and they will have thousands of infinity class battleships with at least 12 nova bombs per ship.
Now think about the out come of fighting our fellow non human occupants of the galaxy? Would you really not prefer we form a alliance even if we continue to hate each other at the very least?
Who says non sentient aren't still on the menu. Besides, as I said, kig-yar don't have a civilization, we are a inner stellar tribal culture. I am of just one faction. It would be a mistake to think I or my people are like other kig-yar, and visa versa.
Weal I do admit I do love Asian recipes, it is actually easier to win my heart through my stomach then it probably should, be. But I haven't had tofu in years. My department of agriculture has its hands full with thorn beast moa dosic pigs and earth post Spanish goats.
What's the deal? I keep trying to change the topic and keep peace between our 2 species as well and be your friend, and you keep trying to start a fight by bringing in what we normally do to each other. Think about how many unggoy are currently alive, is that alone not evidence I am not againced unggoy as a species?
But you alone are responsible if I decide the best option is to destroy you, so its you alone I will pursue if it must be done.
My species have a bad reputation, we need hope, a example, a hero, a protector, a messiah if you will. No one is ever going to care to change the condition of present history, no one will try to keep peace between us and everyone else, so I have taken it apon my self to be that messiah. Kirth has failed, Chol-von has failed, and so have I. But for the many who's lives I have changed, it does matter.
Things are even worse for the unggoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvoNLVaJuBI Slaves, thrown into battle just to die, into battles that where not their fight. No choices their own, no happy ending to this day. Rather then just hoping to get someone to fart so you can refill your air tank, why not do the same for your species. If not, then who do you think will? Cotana? the humans? No. You must do what you can for your own kind while you still can. Because in the end, we face the same doom.
Our future is showing no signs of being bright, we need to be the light future generations will see still shining in their hearts.
We are loved by no gods, we have compassion from no species not our own, we have military weak enough even Spartan 4s laugh at us, no hope, no future, this will never change.
Unless we our selves do something! Have we not proven already we are by far capable of being something better?
But, if you would rather kig-yar and unggoy war againced one another contently, I will not be able to change your mind diplomatically. I will have no choice but to revert to my hearts warfaring ways, forged deep with in my soul by a insanity, trauma, and trial filled life, having known only the human covenant war, and the flood, and the many who have hated me just for what I look like, what I am physically on the outside.
My terms are quite simple, if someone wishes to conquer the world, one must have the capacity to protect it once their command over it is secure. Keep things together, animate anything that threatens you and your subjects.
The galaxy is in danger. I cannot rule what I cannot keep from being destroyed. Your intelligent yes? able to solve problems? hear is a problem.
We need to know how to destroy these enemies before they destroy us all. Must find a way.
