Dear Halo… see above. Thank you. ❤ </3
I was watching some of the Halo Championship Series this weekend to see how good people play. Maybe pick up some tips and ticks. Mostly to unlock some of the Twitch drops. I’m definitely not a pro Halo player, but I can hold my own among my friends. So watching pros play was interesting, depressing, informative, and exhausting. I followed that with a lousy night in-game. Where I couldn’t buy a win.
I still find it surprising how I’ve stayed in the Multiplayer Arena for so long. I looked up my stats and found that I’ve been playing for almost 60hrs and 278 matches. Level 75/100 within the Battle Pass. Over the last 3 months. I really like the battle pass idea, and the weekly challenges mix up which modes I play. I find myself looking forward to Tuesdays when it rolls over.
What I’m Playing
Halo mostly. See above. Also stepped back into Far Cry New Dawn for a bit in co-op. Far Cry 5 / New Dawn I think by a long stretch are the worst in the series to date. But that could also be because I’ve been playing them in co-op and the “co-op” just isn’t implemented ideally. By design. It allows you to play through the whole campaign with a partner but only one of you gets any story progression / story achievements. And I don’t understand why they do this. They were able to figure it out with Ghost Recon, and Borderlands 3, among many other co-op games. Why do they insist on this deal-breaker with Far Cry. Also the game constantly revisits old tropes from previous games, like the drug trips. And its getting old.
I’m hoping Far Cry 6 is better.
What I’m Drawing
Made more progress with the DareDevils. I’m tempted to colour, but really, I think I’m ready to get back to my comic and take a break from these pin-ups for a beat. I’ll fix up a few things that are nagging at me, like the back of Electra’s mask, where the hair is bundled, and her back foot should be somewhat visible underneath her forward leg. And DareDevil’s mask needs a bit of alignment/touch-up. Otherwise I am pleased with how it turned out.
Eh, maybe I’ll do a colour pass. OK, you’ve convinced me. But then we’re moving on to some comic work. I’ll let the X-men group simmer on the back burner for a bit.

My Image books did not arrive due to trucking delays. I’ll hopefully get them this week. Likely Protests or Freedom Convoy related, or something. Marvel and DC come by air. Image/Indies come by truck.
Happy Valentines Day
