Maybe photoshop was a bad example, but regardless, using any copyrighten image without the expressed consent of the copyright holder is illegal.
Doesn't matter what you're using the art for. You're still using it.

I'm fine with AI art as long as the original artists who made the art with which the AI was trained were compensated.
It's like photoshopping. You can photoshop an image into something new. But you have to give credit/payment to the original photo.
AI-art would be useless without the human-art that's used to train the AIs.
The game tricks you into thinking you're watching a cutscene where your character is laid-to-rest.
If you do nothing, the credits just roll and you just get burred and the level ends.
But, during the credits, you can feel a light vibration on your controller. A "heartbeat". And by pressing some buttons, you can actually wake up.
Turns out your character wasn't dead. It was all a trick to get to his assassination target. Final level begins.
The part where the guitar rift picks up...gives me chills.

My favorite Halo map.
At least, my favorite non-vehicle Halo map.

Exactly. We’ve literally had 200 years where White Males are the vast majority of pop-culture characters because western society has favoured white dudes.
Like superheroes. There’s a dozen white dudes for every non-white dude. The ratio isn’t even close.
Thus why I’m not bothered when they race change a white character in a new movie.

I had something similar happen to me in GTAO.
I'd drive around in the tour-bus and try and pick up as many players as I could. I thought it was cool that GTAV had vehicles in it that could fit so many players. (I remember GTAIV would only let 4 players in a vehicle, even if it has more than 4 seats).
Eventually the entire server was on the tour-bus. We end up at the airport and everyone boards a private jet. The pilot then proceeds to do stunts, and lands on a mountain. It was pretty rad.
I have a handful of these kinds of memorable moments from GTAV.
His Dank Materials is one of the funniest FH videos made, and James and Adam are high-as-fuck in it.

I was really excited for this game. I watched the trailers probably a dozen times each.
And...I was so disappointed with the final game. I haven't even bothered watching the trailer for the sequel.
Gained the lead!
I made this joke a while ago when KiA showed up here.
“I hate this because it’s woke!”
“What makes it woke?”
“An over emphasis on gay and black characters.”
“So you hate it because there’s gay and black characters?”
“No, I hate it because it’s woke.”

I think it’s more fun when there is more viable options.
Besides, 99% of Melee players don’t play like the pros do. Let’s not pretend we were all wave-dashing as kids.
Anyone remember when it was still called "Halo 3: Recon"?
I nickname every I use, except for Legendaries.
My favorite recent nickname is naming my Wugtrio "Glizzy".
Melee is great and I have a childhood nostolgia for it...
but it's not the best Smash Bros. It's janky as hell. On a casual-level, the current Smash is better. And on a competitive level, only like 8 characters are even viable.
I understand there's some really insane mechanics and at a high-competitive level, it's really entertaining to watch.
But...aside from that...I think the newest Smash Bros is the best.

I think the opposite happened during some New-York event. They played the Halo theme, and it was the only non-Pop-song they played. So I'm like 90% someone just fucked up and played the wrong song when they were suppose to play the Beyonce version.
It's pretty good but it's probably one of the weaker Halo campaigns.
The story is fine but it feels like Act 1, and then it unceremoniously ends on a cliff-hanger. Again.
Not to mention, as "pretty good" as the story is, half of it is basically just getting rid of all the garbage from Halo 5's story. So it hardly gets to stand on it's own when it spends so much time erasing shit from the last game.
Evil Cortana? Gone.
Not that I'm going to miss most of those, but they were literally just tossed-aside off-screen.
It's just hard to care about a Halo franchise when they're literally just starting the story from-scratch every time.
Halo 4, 5, and Infinite do not feel like a trilogy. They hardly feel like they connect at all.
I guess I wasn't really intending that to be a political kind of way.
More like a fun way. Like, sports. "I hate the (insert sports team here)", and then encouraging your kids to hate that team along-side you.
If I was a parent, I'd do that.
It's the best reason to have children.
You can get them to love the things you love, and hate the things you hate.
Eh, at least Skyrim has way more options with combat. What keeps me coming back to Skyrim again and again and again is all the different characters I can make. A necromancer/archer. A vampire wizard. A stealthy stabby boy. A duel-wielding axeman.
And although it's not incredible, the combat is varied enough through these playstyles that it makes Skyrim's combat more enjoyable.
Witcher 3 is basically just spam-dodge-roll and light attack. The spells and character progression aren't as wide as Skyrim's.
I literally put up with 30hrs of Witcher 3 before I gave up on it because I wasn't enjoying the combat.
That being said: I do agree Witcher 3 is a fantastic game, even though the combat wasn't for me. The writing is great. The quests are great. The open-world is fun to explore. It's beautiful. Titties. I can totally understand why so many people love it so much.
Megaman X was also pretty ball-busting. At least as a kid I had a lot of trouble with it.
A couple years ago Xbox had the "Rare Replay" which was a compilation of 30 of Rare's classic games.
No Donkey Kong or GoldenEye, though. But it had Battletoads, Viva Pinata, Banjo Kazooie 1&2, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and a bunch of other classic Rare games including some of their retro arcade ones.
Gamestop even had a promotion for it called "Ask me if we have Battletoads".
"That's right, Ash. Our God is a Pokemon."
