  1. Yesterday
  2. BF1942 def would not hold up today. It was revolutionary, but it was as unpolished as the original counter strike would be today. BF2 is still my all time favorite as far as the maps go, but damn last time I played it a few years ago it was crazy how clunky it felt. The map scale just felt so much bigger... and it was. The trade off was you could go a long time without ever seeing anyone even with PC player counts vs. the limited console at the time. Something that little have the attention span for these days. I remember setting up C4 on a bridge and then running off to a high point pretty far away. The whole ordeal took a good 10 minutes or more. Then I waited for another 5 or more minutes for a tank to drive across so I could blow the bridge. Good times. Today its all about fast action all the time. I can't say I dislike it with how much time i spent on Ziba tower 24/7 servers on BF3. BF1 lost its luster for me because of how little weapons the base game had, and how not many of them were very good. Which also led to my rage quit over the Martini nerf. Outside of that, the Cie-Regatti and the Model 10-A are the only things I cared to use that I felt were effective. Dice really lost their way with weapon balance, and balance in general. Lets nerf this rifle with abysmal stats because skilled players can double collateral people on a moving boat, but its cool to sit in a blimp and rake in 40 kills or ride around in a single person tank and destroy everyone because you can self repair. Lets say we nerfed the Model 10-A like 3 times, but I can still run around and hip fire one shot everyone until the last nerf where I just had to tap ADS and fire effectively "quick-scope" one shotting everyone. Operations were a lot of fun when the team wasn't picking the wrong tank to take out behemoths. But I got burnt out when the whole game revolved around sniping, or sneaking up to sniper ridge and killing them all. Sniping will always be popular, but man it was too popular in BF1, it all goes back to how bad most the weapons where. People are going to gravitate towards the guns with the best TTK. WWII has way more weapons that they better implement in the base game. I don't need to wait 3-4 months post release to get the M1919. I don't want to grind through a shit gun just to get the STG44. Don't make me get 50 head shots with a gun that has insane recoil to get the MP40. Lets not be cute. Lets have some real weapon diversity.
  3. This was way better than the first one, and I really liked the first one. Kudos to the trailer for seeming like it gave a lot away, but actually gave away very little.
  4. I'm honestly hoping it's WWII. I never got to play the original BF and I find the lack of a good WWII shooter to be disheartening. I wouldn't be mad if it was another modern one but the thing I want back most is pretty much the same progression system as BF4. BF1 was a catastrophe in the respect (I still think BF1 was a good game but sadly it just lost it's luster way to fast). I'm pretty sure Premium won't be a thing this time around (or at least I hope so, console never really got hit as hard by the paywall as PC players did or at least I didn't notice it all that much when I still played but it is still noticeable) unless EA wants to keep making stupid mistakes (then again I wouldn't be surprised if they went with it again).
  5. You can't actually blame them with how successful R6S is, it's pretty much the king of team based tactical shooters atm though, based on what little I know because I really have no interest in COD anymore, this is probably the worst decision they could of made. COD will never be team focused no matter how hard you try, to many dudebro casuals and trihards play COD and as well all know from experience team based content in COD never actually works because no one ever works as a team (which is why Search and Destroy was objective based TDM after COD4, saddened me greatly since that's my favorite mode). Those who do will always win (a sad truth of R6S and one of the main reasons I stopped playing, I love the game to death but no one ever wants to communicate on console and it's fucking sad) and it will frustrate those that want to old COD run and gun experience. Focusing on Zombies and a probable BR mode is also entirely stupid but it's Activision so are we all really that surprised? The exclusion of the campaign is probably a good move on their part. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed COD4 and WaW's campaigns but you have to admit they were poorly written and poorly put together. Honestly people have been complaining that they should just stick to multiplayer and now that they are I'm confused as to why we're everyone is having a shit fit. God damn gamers are fickle as hell, finally get what you want but bitch about it anyways.
  6. Last week
  7. After watching Drift0r's videos its actually very different from any COD they've made, and not in a good way. There are a lot of positives like predictive recoil. But they've made this game to be more team focused like a R6S lite. Its just not going to work for a franchise full of dudebro casuals. You're either going to get steam rolled by a team that communicates, or you're going to have wildly inconsistent matches. 5v5 is a downgrade. I'm also normally not one to care about a single player campaign being excluded, but for COD its a bit different and its a shame too. Blops 3 campaign was pretty trash but WW2's campaign was quite good.
  8. It's looking like its WW2. They need to leave the bombs to those radio towers like in the modern games. I'd rather see things like that rather than a behemoth in operations. Planes should only have guns. But we all know those Zero dive bombers are gonna cause havoc.
  9. Premium needs to go. After the 1st dlc the only players left are premium players, most of which have no life and decent team balance usually goes out the window. I'd rather see a free map introduced once every month instead of a four map dlc pack with exclusive guns that you need to stay competitive. What i really want is a battlefield game that has the same mechanics as bf4. And screw planes. If the next battlefield game expects ppl to use permanently placed AA guns to take out planes I might not even buy it. I'm that sick of plane bomb spam. Westie says he hates random unavoidable deaths but didn't mention the planes when they are the primary issue imo. Endless explosion bomb spam.
  10. It looks like every other call of duty game to me. Except now it'll have no campaign and focus more on zombies. I'm sure it'll have a battle royal mode to. Meh. https://www.polygon.com/2018/5/18/17366980/call-of-duty-black-ops-4-no-single-player-campaign I never cared for cod's zombie mode and kill streaks make for cheap game play.
  11. Deadpool 2 is way better than the previous one. Like good enough that I don't want to say anything bad about it.
  12. So Battlefield has never used a roman numeral. V is either for Victory ala WWII... or Vietnam which I'm hoping for the most. PLEASE GIVE US NAM OPERATIONS!!! HILL 137! I need to RPG choppers again. Nam is the best of modern without the cheap ass guided bullshit.
  13. In short. Its boots on the ground taking place between Blops 2 and 3 with precursor specialists that were in 3. 3 Zombie maps on day one, and a battle royale mode called Blackout. Healing is no longer automatic, you have to press a button to give yourself a shot to start healing.
  14. Ancient Magus Bride is simply outstanding. I wish I would have gotten to it sooner. Its like a darker Spirited Away with some XXXholic and Mushi Shi mixed in. From all the promotion Funi did on facebook, it was nothing like what I thought it was going to be. They really need to work on conveying themes better. Its partially why it took me so long to get around too it, because it didn't interest me at first. If you're ever in the mood for a mystical anime, this is the one. The world building is fantastic.

  15. https://gizmodo.com/senate-votes-to-save-net-neutrality-proving-shame-stil-1826054197 I doubt it'll pass through the house or get signed by Trump. But it is surprising that it passed through the senate. We could get surprised again.
  16. I like VSAUCE better and I hate hes much slower to make them because of Mind Field. Even Michael said he liked it better during a truth serum experiment ep of Mind Field. But Mind Field probably makes way more money. It's still worth watching, it's more about human psyche and social experiments. Its interesting to see the results on things that are only discussed hypothetically. You gotta wonder how many times they had to do psyche tests on these people to make sure they didnt get mental harm from them.
  17. I'm so far behind on vsauce. Hows the youtube red series compared to his regular videos? Are they just as informative?
  18. Probably one of the more beautiful openings I've heard in a while.
  19. 3 episodes into Stiens:Gate 0, and it's a feels trip. I liked the first one, but I wouldn't consider myself a fan. But this one is just tugging at my feelings with Okabe interacting with Amadeus. On a funny note, its wierd how everyone's tits got huge. Wtf? XDXD

      XD leave it to you to notice the most important things.

      It's been a rough ride and the way things are shaping up (based on all 5 eps) it's going to be another emotional roller coaster. I'm honestly enjoying this more then the first one just based on the emotional tone alone but I still say the first one was amazing in it's own right (I just wish the fucking games would go on sale x.x )

      It's kinda hard not to notice the first time Mayuri shows up. I'm like "wait what?" XD. It's an obvious difference.

  20. I'm going to preface this by saying I'm normally not a fan of Super Robot mech shows (more of a Real Robot guy myself (Gundam/Macross)) and never really have been (there are exceptions but they are few) so that will tell you just how much I adored this show.

    It took me 11 years to finally sit down and watch it (and it's spent many years on my Netflix to watch list (I watched in on CR though) but I finished Gurren Lagann tonight and I have to say I absolutely fucking adored it. I don't understand why it took me so long to finally watch it but god am I glad I finally did. I haven't been this pumped after watching a show since I finished Kill la Kill (funny considering Trigger is also responsible making that gem). I'll admit it was a little rough in the beginning and if it wasn't for Kamina I would of dropped it but man am I glad I stuck through it, it only kept getting better. I'll admit, my taste for shows like this has dwindled over the years and I'm not really into the over the top, ridiculous shit anymore but god this just scratched an itch I didn't even know I had. Sure, I have my issues with the show (some pretty poor character development in some of the secondary characters, story is a little hard to follow after a certain point, some of the mech based science bugs me, and the whole Spiral Energy thing is ridiculous) but god damn do they seem insignificant when put up against an awesome soundtrack, awesome visuals (a little jenky considering how old it is), and a downright stellar main cast.

    If it wasn't for my absolute love for Zeta Gundam this might have taken the place as my all time favorite mech anime (you all know me well enough to know how high of praise this is). I can't wait to watch the movies this weekend (yea they're recaps but apparently the second movie makes the final fight even more epic then it already was) and I'm sad to think there is no more of this wonderful show to watch (manly tears were shed at this realization).

      Finally got both movies watched and I have to say for recap/condensation movies they were pretty damn good.

      The first one was what you'd expect from a condensation of the first 15 episodes and while it was good some of the changes were kinda weird (like the final battle with the Four Generals, while I like this version somewhat more than the original fights it left out a lot of what motivated Simon to break out of his meek self and into the person he became) and a little off-putting. Overall though enjoyable.

      Now the second one was, well I just don't know how to put it because I don't think there is a word in any language that can describe just how pure fucking awesome it was. Again some of the changes were weird and off-putting but that final battle was beyond awesome, probably the most enjoyable 30 minutes I've ever seen in a movie. Pure fucking insanity is the only real way to summarize it.

      Without a doubt this is probably going to go down as one of my all time favorite mech anime and anime of all time (nothing will ever beat out Zeta Gundam for top mech anime but this is a close fucking second and Aria will always remain my all time favorite anime but this is close up there (displaced by like 5 or 6 other shows, definitely in the top 10 though)). After watching the movies I just can't talk myself out of buying this now and I must own this for my collection (I just wish it didn't cost so much x.x). I didn't think Trigger could top Kill la Kill for me but they did and did it before Kill la Kill was even created, god damn this show and the movies were amazing (I just wish it didn't take me 11 years to finally watch it).

      I never did watch the movies but now I'm going to after reading what you said. I always thought since they were just recaps of the series that it'd be better to just rewatch the series but that second movie must be amazing.

    4. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      For the final fight alone the second movie is worth watching, it's just that fucking awesome. As I said there are some changes that just seemed weird to me (mostly with story and character flow, they retconned a lot of what happened in the last 3-4 eps and completely condensed the whole Anti-Spiral reveal/Simon arrest into like 10-15 minutes) but the movies are worth a watch (though overall the story is laid out better and the characters progress more fluidly in the series) if you want to say you've had the complete TTGL experience (though they underplay Kamina a lot more than I'd of preferred, he's still a major focus but it seems they really rushed through his arc to get to the more meaty story bits which felt like a complete disregard for his importance (the second movie does a good job and establishing how important he was but it felt really underplayed in the first movie)).

  21. Smoked some ribs last night and they turned out amazing. :D

  22. Earlier
  23. Finished Darling in the Franxx today. Its definitely not for everyone. It starts out confused to what it is. A lot of people could give up on it after the first few eps. What's seemingly a corny mecha series with horny teens quickly evolves into an interesting and mysterious world were a group of kids try to find their place on society and struggle to cope with their emotions. Lately, I've been unintentionally watching series with slow build ups that lead to big payoffs and this is one of them. Having to wait each week for a new episode deprived me of the instant gratification or lack there of I'm accustomed to. The series ends without answering a lot of questions and adding a few more about the actual social structure and why the world is the way it is. But the questions about Hiro's issues and his explainable connection to 002 are all resolved. The animators of Gurren Lagann did this series, and it's easy to see that. Instead of a over the top epic tale, we get a darker world with mysterious creatures that probably wont be explained until next season.

      XD kotaku actually did an article about how weird it was and then two more articles later their opinion evolved. 

  24. I watched both seasons of this and through it was good overall. The episodes that were more interesting to me were the ones where Michael made himself the subject to these experiments. There were too many eps IMO that tested various types of peer pressure and social awkwardness. When the subjects were told they were being duped, they couldn't really come up with an real answer for their actions because they were too embarrassed. You could see it all over their face. There was one episode were a lady looked pissed that she was called out of lying about her experience from a placebo hallucinogen. She just kept saying she really felt something.
  25. I originally scoffed at this because of YT Red, but since I got a 3 month free trail I watched this and thought it was well made. They actually almost went the way of the Daniel was the real bully but didn't quite commit to it. Daniel was pretty unlikable throughout the whole series, and Cobra Kai felt like a dojo of redemption, only til the end where they tried to make them out to be the bad guys when they got "full of them selves". You empathize with the Cobra Kai kids and Johnny the whole series so the last minute turn doesn't work very well and seems forced. Diaz is too likeable of a character with a sad back history and his mom and grandma still cheering him on. Making him the bully in favor of Johnny's toubled son who's was a douche the whole series trying to get back at his dad by working for Daniel was pretty crappy. Its like they didn't know what to do in the end and decided to try to make Daniel the "good guy" anyways even though he was an immature rich asshole the whole series and Johnny was trying to get his life back together through reopening Cobra Kai. Oh and Johnny and Daniel are really out of shape. when Daniel tries to do Karate it looks super shitty, because he can barely lift his leg up anymore. Johnny looks a bit better and has better camera cuts for his sequences. Thankfully the kids are more in shape to do these moves.
  26. December 14th was coming. (That was just the vote to destroy Net Neutrality) Then April 23rd was coming. (But it wasn't officially the death of Net Neutrality.) Now June 11th is coming. (I'm guessing this news is happening now as the CRA most likely failed.) I might just be paranoid. But I'm really expecting a lot of websites to be gone before the 2020 election. Or even before this November.
