  2. I finished Fate/Zero and I'm into season two of Fate/Stay. I really hate how Saber keeps getting screwed over. She's such a nice and honorable character. :( I'm waiting for her overdue redemption.

    Destiny 2

    Sadly that's definitely not going to happen. Since they're going to solo dev and publish as a smaller studio, they'll need a constant stream of income off their singular project similar to how Epic made millions off Fortnite. They could make a better and more complete campaign, but their games will focus on cosmetics, and the way to show them off is multiplayer. The hottest trend right now is battle royale... even Ace Combat is going to have it. Its new and shiny and pretty much no one is going to take a chance on something else until it starts a declining trend possibly years from now. If they change up how they do things, they can be successful... but if they try on their own to stay with this same business model of $30-40 add ons, they'll be a 3rd party developer again really fast.

    Destiny 2

    I remember Destiny was supposed to be this huge plot driven game that expanded into the universe but instead became a game focused on grinding gear and raids and never leaving the solar system. Meh. People can blame activision all they want for how Destiny turned out, but in the end its still a stain on Bungie's reputation. I'd like to see Destiny get completely rebooted with a focus on a single player campaign.

    Sony would be their best option if they got a deal that gave them as much freedom as Kojima. EA is just walking into the same exact situation if not worse. Even if they just try to partner, they'll tank their games on purpose until they cant absorb them like they did to Respawn and Titanfall. But if they stay solo, I could see them becoming digital only... especially if they're going to continue with the always online, shared world games. I don't really know how else the could cut publishing costs.

    I highly doubt Microsoft would buy them after their split (MS got everything they wanted out of the split with the Halo franchise (the only good thing Bungie did) and the half of the team that made Halo (which is now 343)) as it wasn't exactly amicable by what I've read. Honestly Bungie doesn't stand a chance on its own unless it can prove itself with the inevitable release of Destiny 3 and if the game they're developing is good enough. Bungie burned a lot of bridges when they left MS and now with them leaving Activision they burned even more (though lets face it, burning a bridge with Activision isn't exactly that bad). I forsee them either being bought out by Sony or Ubisoft (I wouldn't be surprised if EA started sniffing up that tree even if they have their own "Destiny" coming out next month) or completely collapsing in on themselves. They shot themselves in the foot when they left MS imo and dug their own grave with Destiny, it'll take a miracle for them to come out ahead after this. Blizzard can't afford to leave especially now that Activision has all but taken control of the company (most of the OG Blizzard staff have pretty much quit or been let go) and lets face it they're a sinking ship due to Activision's involvement as of late (and with the multiple Acti transplants taking key positions even more so). Plus, if I remember correctly, Activision owns the majority share in Blizzard when they merged meaning the name stays with Activision (as do the properties they've created). Bungie only had a partnership so it's not surprising they were able to keep the Destiny IP.

    I don't think they'll go back to MS since they went to Activision to get away from them in the first place. But they will have to release a solid product to be able to stay independent otherwise that could happen unless Sony forks out the cash as they do have the better relationship with them at the moment. Or Ubisoft could buy them.

    Destiny 2

    Here's hoping Bungie can stay independent as Microsoft has gone on a buying spree before the 4th Xbox releases. As for Activision & their ilk I won't cry when they lose their real consumers, the shareholders.

    Vikings Season 5 Discussion

    I got caught up last night. Its a good thing this show isn't made on HBO or it'd be 50% softcore porn this season. I don't think Floki even had enough people there to begin with to start a sustainable population and now theres only a handful left. If everyone ends up dying then the entire Floki community arc seems pointless unless this eventually leads to something other than character development for Floki. They couldn't really go back because they disassembled their boats for housing, but with so few left they could probably make a boat again and leave now. Its a shame Heahmund died already. I liked his character and his personal conflict. That and he murdered the hell out of people which was cool. Ivar is a bits nuts with his god talk. And a few eps back when Rollo said Bjorn was his kid.. it felt like a Jerry Springer moment. And Judith.. shes brutal.. poison her own son like that. wtf, shes almost as nuts as Ivar.

  19. Happy new year!

  20. So after counting the cash and gift cards I got for my birthday in Oct and for Christmas I finally just broke down and ordered a Switch today all because I want the new Smash Brothers (damn you Nintendo, why do you do this to me. You know I have an obsession with SSB).

    So yeah, I now get to start the journey of being a Switch owner (I just wish it didn't cost so much freaking money x.x).

      Smash is amazing. I beat World of Light two days ago. It took me around 34 hours. Quite impressive for a "campaign". It wasn't perfect, and there were a lot of things they could have improved on it to make it truly in depth and interesting. But for what it is, it's a blast for sure. If Kirby, Mario, Marth or Shiek isn't one of your best, you might be waiting a long time to unlock someone you love though. There is a cheese method, but I went with the legit route. At least the larger, heavier characters are worth plaything. They're quite nimble while keeping their power. Bowser was super clutch for me at times when I needed more damage per hit, and I've never liked playing as him. By the end of it I was flipping between my main Ness, Lucina, and Fox, with a sprinkle of Captain Falcon, Belmont, and Bowser.

      Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild are fantastic games as well. I have a lot of smaller games like Mega Man 11 and the Blaster Master remastered. I typically save those for when I'm sitting at the repair shop waiting on maintenance. It may not be my most played console, but its def the most clutch console for boring situations.

      Good thing I was good with Marth in the Gamecube version (though that was years ago) though I was even better with Roy or Link (and I'm not to shabby with Kirby or Pikachu). I've seen quite a bit of the game through watching streamers and that's what made me want it (well that and my co-worker gushing about it). Can't wait until it gets here next week because this should provide me with plenty of shit to keep me busy until Ace Combat comes out (well Nier as well, I'm still nowhere near beating it yet).

      I'm thinking once I get the money I'll be picking up Octopath Traveler (I'm a sucker for old school JRPG's) and I might pick up BotW (I'm not overly that interested in it since I've never been the biggest Zelda fan (the only Zelda game I've ever enjoyed was A Link to the the Past) but the open world aspect had me intrigued (and from what I've seen of it the story is phenomenal)). I'm pretty much getting it for those reasons as well, will be nice to have for road trips and the occasional visit to the mechanic instead of staying glued to my phone like I usually do.

      If you like Marth, Lucina is freaking amazing. I instantly fell in love with her when I tried her out after unlocking her. She has the same move set, but her sword does damage equally across the whole blade rather than the tip having the most power like Marth. To me it just feels better all around. The last one I played was Brawl, but not very much of it as I didn't really care for Wii and I never got a Wii U. That being said, a lot of the characters are brand new to me since I missed a lot of time. I logged endless hours on Melee, I'm sure you'll get your bearings quick once you jump in like I did. For the most part, all the classic characters feel exactly the same, except Gannondorf, they changed some of his moves slightly, I guess to make him less of a Captain Falcon heavy. They also got rid of a lot of cheese. Its much harder to back carry someone off the side and toss them with DK, or ledge drop and spit with Kirby.

      I'm not an old school JRPG fan, but I almost did get Octopath, and then Ys: VIII caught my eye and I never looked back. The great thing about Octopath is it will be one of those games that lasts  the full 6 hours off battery.

    My Hero Academia Season 2 SimulDub

    I'm so freaking hyped and I'm so happy that the next season starts where it starts, god it's going to be epic based on everything I've read about it (plus yay, Eri finally animated). Can it be October already?
  22. MOB PSYCHO 100 Season 2 is coming to the Winter Simuldub and I'm really freaking hyped about it. Its def one of the most underrated series of the past few years. The animation is gritty and wild, the action is amazing, and the comedy is outstanding. I can't wait!

    Battlefield V

    I got a couple rounds of conquest in and a round of grand operations. I played with a bunch of randoms with my mic off. So far it has been enjoyable. The bleedout doesn't take no where near as long as it did in the beta. I haven't gotten into all the gun customization stuff yet but gameplay mechanics seem decent. The lack of spotting is really throwing me off tho. It was a hard nerf to recon to force people to play other classes imo. Buddy revives work fine but I'm hardly seeing any medics at all. I ran into maybe 2 over the 2 hours I was playing. I didn't try medic myself yet mostly because I kept swapping back and forth from assault to attack vehicles or recon to spot people with it's gadget, it auto spots players when you look at them and I rack up points easy with it. The spotting lasts a few seconds but it helps significantly for giving away enemy locations to people I'm not talking to. There seems to be way more vehicles in this than BF1, but I still haven't seen an empty tank to spawn into, I'm guessing they are spawns at flags and I have to stay in the spawn screen to see them. The lack of spotting is funny tho because of the amount of times I'd run right into an enemy out of nowhere. It causes quite a bit more "oh shit" moments. My complaints so far is the commorose system. Why the hell they had to change it to generic looking icons instead of comments makes no sense to me. And when I'm squad leader and want to set an objective in the commorose I hold R1, push down to set an objective, then go left or right for what objective to set and then the cursor goes just left or right of the objective and I don't set a single objective at all.. Seriously dice... I'm not using a mouse here, its a f*cking controller, don't treat it like a mouse cursor.
  24. Finally got my dishwasher completely hooked up. What a pain in the ass. Mostly because the previous owners of this house didn't extend the new flooring into the dishwasher cabinet area.. and they installed an outlet directly behind the dishwasher that requires a flat style plug I had to order.. and the delivery guys threw away the insulation piece that I also had to order (no charge from whirlpool for that at least). And when I finally got it all in place I couldn't mount it until I added a new piece of wood trim to the underside of the cabinet to give it something to mount to. I know see why installation prices can run so high. wtf. Over 2 weeks I put like 8 hours into this thing. I ran it once for the first time last night. Seems pretty efficient.

      Oh god I couldn't imagine. XD

      It was a good learning experience tho. I now know how to do it in case I ever need to again.. and I found out that sharkbite brand pipe fittings work amazingly well with no tools required. If I need to replace a damn fitting again I'll use that brand from now on. That was the last thing too.. I went to connect the water line, unscrewed the end of the pipe expecting a threaded connection on the end and instead I found out it was a pipe cap that popped off with just the end of a pipe with no fitting to connect the water supply line too. wtf. These people must have literally cut the pipe to disconnect their previous dishwasher instead of unhooking it correctly.
