The Halo OSTs are all pretty good. My favorite being Reach. Terraria has a good soundtrack. All the Command and Conquer games have awesome soundtracks.

I like most of this. I don't think it should be required to own a firearm. I mean you do need to pay for the firearm with your own money. But I am all for making it easier for law abiding citizens to purchase firearms. On the other hand I completely understand the practicality of this, I mean if everybody owns and knows how to use guns and with Missouri's carry laws(Which I wish Texas would get because in most ways they are better than the carry laws here) it would make it much much harder for anything like mass shooting to happen in a public area(granted most mass shootings happen "Gun free" zones, speaking nationwide don't know about Missouri by itself)

As far as registration goes for Fully-Automatic weapons idk. I would need to do more research. But I do think they should be easier to get for people like myself who are law abiding citizens and just want to have fun at the range to get full auto weapons. Because I have a dream of building myself a full collection of the weapons from the Halo game series that is as accurate as possible. But for now those bills won't affect me.

One time I was on my way to a hockey game(I was playing) and we passed like a 16 vehicle pile up on an freeway exit. Like 10 small cars, a few vans, a truck and an 18 wheeler were all busted up and on the side of the road. And one of the last vehicles had collided with another as we were passing by.

It's cheaper and easier to get another PS3 as others have said.

I hate Gamestop but if you want a return policy they are likely the best place to go for an easy purchase. Personally I would check places like ebay, Letgo, maybe even Craigslist. Those will probably be the cheapest way to one.

This is a good option that gives you an RTX GPU 1tb SSD, 1080p 144hz screen(Having higher than 1080p on a monitor under 20 inches is not that useful because the pixel density is extremely high anyway and higher resolution vastly decrease battery life)

Forum Topic "Do you think 1440p or 4K will become standard for gaming and in general anytime soon?"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 18 days ago

1080p is already at entry level status. You can pick up a 1080p 60hz monitor for under $100 and have been able to for a while. Go into the $140+ range and you are looking at 1080p ultra wide or 1080p higher refresh rates or 1440p 60hz. At $200+ you are looking at 1440p high refresh rate or 4k 60hz.

1080p is not just entry level anymore it is low end. And that is not a bad thing. It still looks decent and you can pick up a cheap GPU that will run 1080p no problem.

Forum Topic "Do you think 1440p or 4K will become standard for gaming and in general anytime soon?"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 18 days ago

Same. I think 1440p will have its place in the more niche market(Ultra wide and 100+hz). Whereas 4k will and is currently take the standard resolution for 60hz market. It will be a while(I would say 5 years ish but that's just a guess) before 4k high refresh rate becomes a viable thing for most people. And I haven't seen a 4k ultra wide so.

Wow first Peta insulting Steve Irwin now you. You got a death wish or something?

I will say that while yes people like him do what most people would consider stupid stuff, it does not make them idiots.

As far as accents go people tell me I have an accent. And I do. I have a Minnesotan north woods accent. Which to people in Minnesota means nothing since a lot of people up there have either that accent or a Duluth-Swedish accent. But down in Texas where I currently reside people tell me I have an accent and tell me I am pronouncing words incorrectly whereas it is actually the opposite. For example when I say OUT I pronounce the OU sound. Whereas most of the country pronounces it with an OW sound. But the word is not spelled OWT it is OUT. And from watching videos from channels like Hardware unboxed I notice they pronounce things more like Minnesotans than I would have expected, except of course with an Australian accent.

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 19 days ago

It's a hard choice. Like if we were to even go by franchise I would be stuck between Halo and Command and Conquer(One a FPS series with RTS spinoffs and one an RTS series with an FPS spinoff)

I would say over the past few years Halo CE. A lot of good hours spent playing with friends over the past year or two.

Before I ever played halo the answer would have been hands down C&C Generals.

I would say Halo CE simply because of SPV3 lol.

I mean CE is an awesome game on it's own, but the modding scene is insane. Then again you could say the same for Skyrim. And they both use an engine that began production in 1999.......

Forum Topic "If SHTF...."

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 27 days ago

And what measures were those exactly?

And what system needs an overhaul?

The majority of problems I have seen with the NICS system have come from cases that were prior to NICS existing. Because in modern cases things like this are automatically put into NICS.

Forum Topic "If SHTF...."

Nullarc77 3 Builds 2 points 27 days ago

Yes. Several people did mess up. And because of that measures should be put in place to make sure this does not happen again.

Forum Topic "If SHTF...."

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 27 days ago

Idk. Somebkdy messed up. And there should be steps taken to make sure something like this doesn't happen again.

The problem likely came from the fact that his crime happened before NICS existed. And somewhere when putting his information into NICS way back in the 90s somebody messed up.

Never said it wasn't documented. I just said it wasn't put into NICS properly when it cones to being tied to his name. If it wasn't documented the 3rd background check never wpuld have turned up anything.

Forum Topic "If SHTF...."

Nullarc77 3 Builds 2 points 27 days ago

Which is why we need to do better about making certain mental health records available to be included in background checks. But, we need to do this carefully to prevent those that aren't a danger to themselves or others from losing their right to defend themselves. It's a grey area but we could do better if both sides could get their heads out of their asses

Well said and I agree 100%.

To clarify something I am not aayong we shouldn't strive for perfection. I believe that if you don't at least make an effort to improve yourself you have given up on yourself. And the same thing goes for systems like NICS. If you don't strive to be perfect in your duties than something bad will happen. You are likely going to mess up along the way due to human error being ever present. But nobody should ever give up trying.

Forum Topic "If SHTF...."

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 27 days ago

IR doesn't matter if it "usually works". It didn't work here and 5 people died. Its grossly unacceptable

Never said it was acceptable. But no system no matter how good will never be perfect as long as human error is capable of interfering with it. The background check system didn't fail. It can only opperate off if information it is given. The people who put his information into the system failed. That is human error.

If a system had a 99.9999999999999%(can't find the success rate of the FBI background check system although it is likely somewhere close to this as so few shootings have been the result of NICS not having access to information) success rate it will never reach 100% as long as human error is a factor. But it can be improved. And this entire thing could have been prevented had people not been lazy with their jobs. Whether it was the person putting the shooters file into the system or the state police when they didn't properly go after this guy back in 2014.

A background check system can't flag for information if it was never given that information.

Forum Topic "If SHTF...."

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 27 days ago

Never said it was perfect and the system does need to be improved. But to say it doesn't work as a blank statement is just wrong. And this was not really the fault if the system it was, according to the articles I read, the fault of the FBI for not properly putting in his criminal history in relation to his name, as he was only found out due to his fingerprints triggering the FBI's database when he applied for a conceal carry(and went through a third background check) and the state police of Illinois for being lazy and not making an attempt to retrieve the gun at all.

The system only works if people do their job. But for a vast majority if people that want to buy a gun but can't due to a criminal charge the system works.

Forum Topic "If SHTF...."

I think, because this is a thread about what would you do in a certain situation, they thought about themselves, and simply neglected to consider firearms are legal in some countries because (I assume) that wouldn't be relevant to them.

Possibly. But their comment came off as somwhat patronizing and they didn't even say what they would do in that situation without a firearm. If they had said what they would have done and actually kept their comment relevant to the topic I don't think anybody would have downvoted them or replied with sarcastic comments.
