This stream auto-updates   

  1. Yesterday
  2. My PC had an update and restart only option last night. I had no idea there was another 'creators update' for windows 10. It was the 'fall creators update'. Damn thing took over an hour to install and reset numerous times. And apparently I have a 'windows feature update' that I still have to do. I guess I should check my nvidia drivers and update them today too. I've been having some windows 10 crashes lately so hopefully this update will fix that.

  3. I was all set to marathon this and after the first 6 eps it was moving so slow that I haven't finished it yet. The action scenes when they do happen are great. But its moving so slow.
  4. I watched this and just about all the action happens in the trailer.... through all 13 eps. Pete Castiglione is the worst cover name ever, and Frank Castle's constant scream grunts were a bit obnoxious. Everything was OOOOWWWRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was kinda silly how consistent it was. Overall it wasn't bad. But I expected more. The CGI zipline scene was pretty bad.
  5. Last week
  6. I was under the impression from what I've read that George, Ralph, & Lizzie were all originally human. But it seems like that origin changes from game to game. I guess human versions of the characters wouldn't show up in the movie due to nudity.
  7. I'm still using the condi druid build with Soulbeast swapped out for Druid, seems to work just find. I didn't know dagger was a condi weapon, It didn't seem like it in the beta. I guess I'll have to check it out. I have no interest in trying Deadeye. DD is just an OP class and will always remain the best spec, not only for its raw damage output, but its sustain. I could never play base thief because of how squishy it was, but that healing signet is a difference maker.
  8. I played the hell out of this game when i was a kid. The movie looks fun and the plot seems a bit believable even tho it's a bit of a rip off of Jurassic park 2 when they transported a t-rex to a city and it went on a rampage. George, Ralph, & Lizzy had an origin story in the original game? I don't remember that at all.
  9. Are you using this build for soulbeast? https://qtfy.eu/guildwars/ranger/condi-soulbeast-build-guide/ I looked at mettabattle but they don't even have a condi soulbeast build on there. Is dagger main hand worth using? I have soulbeast completely unlocked for my ranger but I still need to complete her condi build and get the new pets. Did you try deadeye? I didn't unlock it yet but from what I've seen of it in pvp I don't think it's worth using in either pvp or pve. It must be meant as a wvw roaming build. I don't see why I'd ever use it over daredevil just like ill never use spellbreaker over berserker for warrior in pve.
  10. I love unfogging all the maps super fast. I found my favorite points to start from on each map and send a alt there to swoop the whole thing in a few minutes. I went ahead and collected all the new Ranger pets tonight. Out of all the new specs, I think Soulbest is my favorite because it offers the most improvement to Ranger's fighting ability. Base Ranger's utilities were never that great for offense, and I really like some of these stances you get. Beast mode adds a nice touch offering new and useful F1-3 abilities the class never has had since the pet occupied that area. The Jacaranda is great for beast mode because it gives ranger a second heal much like Guardian's F2. Outside of beastmode tho, the little tree monster is a bit too aggressive. Holy cow, it chases things down way far off putting me into combat undesirably. I don't know if its a bug just for it, but it seems to want to just fight non stop. There is no reason not to be DD still. I took my thief into Crystal Oasis and ROTFLstomped every forged raiding party I found in seconds, and then melted some Vet Hydras like jokes. Sometimes those Forged Assemblers can do some damage with those spinning blade attacks, but my DD never even gave them a chance to perform it. The Hydra barely could get off one meteor strike attempt before its heads went flying off. With no pocket raptors to mow me down when I'm not paying attention, PoF enemies can't touch me on this character. I may have gone down once, but instantly rallied because everything was almost dead already when it happened. I mean Staff DD does more damage spamming 1, while spamming 5 off initiative regen, than 2 DH traps, and the GS4-2 combo. So much DPS.
  11. I love these new mounts. Flying has never been so much fun.
  12. After reading the hobbit, legolus and the elf woman with the love interest of the dwarf seemed completely out of place in the movies since neither of those characters were even in the book. I wouldn't be surprised if there are already book deals in the works at the point. We might get an expanded universe of novels from independent authors like the huge collection of old star wars novels. Legolus still become the equivilant of Luke Skywalker and get 20 novels dedicated to his adventures.
  13. I'm not shocked that they're making a Rampage movie I'm shocked that Uwe Boll didn't ruin making a Rampage movie based on the Video Game. Also I'm kind of disappointed they changed the origins of George, Ralph, & Lizzy.
  14. Rampage may not be as iconic as other video games that received terrible movies, and many people my go see this without knowing its based one on. It may be a fun watch though. JDM is acting like Negan.
  15. Not exactly good news if you ask me considering that, unless the original author does it, anything added to an epic fantasy series like this will feel unoriginal and uninspired. It's no secret that I'm not the biggest fan of Peter Jackson's LotR movies (I still feel they were shitty adaptations but given time constraints I understand why they cut a variety of things) and while I think he did an amazing job with The Hobbit Trilogy (still not as faithful as I'd of liked but still very good movies (Legolas should of never been in the movies as he was never in the book)) I just feel no one is capable of adapting LotR faithfully enough for me to be happy about it (then again my opinion will always be disregarded because money). The Silmarillion could never be adapted into a TV series or movie considering that book is a collections of unfinished stories Tolkien wrote before he died that Christopher compiled into a book (with his own revisions and additions). It's to disjointed to get a real feel for anything going on and the writers would have to take severe liberties just to make a coherent enough movies/show (something I'd hate because no one really knows how Tolkien would of finished those stories). Yea, suffice to say I'm going to be severely disappointed with whatever comes out of this deal (unless it's an actual, faithful adaptation of the books). I just feel this franchise should be left alone and not messed with but again my opinion matters not because money.
  16. The son of Tolkien has finally retired at the age of 93. As far as I know he hated the movies and would never sign off on any movie or tv deals and couldn't do anything to stop pre-existing deals that were made prior to him holding the estate. Now that he's retired Amazon already struck a deal with the Tolkien estate to make a new Lord of the rings series for Amazon prime. At first I thought it was a prequel series but now it sounds like a reboot of Lord of the rings entirely which sounds dumb when there are so many other ways they could have made a series that takes place in the world that was created. Maybe we'll get a Silmarillion movie in the near future. Or maybe a Tom Bombadil cartoon on cartoon network. http://deadline.com/2017/11/amazon-the-lord-of-the-rings-tv-series-multi-season-commitment-1202207065/ https://io9.gizmodo.com/j-r-r-tolkiens-son-resigns-as-director-of-tolkien-esta-1820476459
  17. The new firefox update is amazing. It feels a lot faster even if it does look like a Windows 95 program. XD

      I haven't used it enough yet to notice any difference but one positive is it doesn't crash constantly like the old update did. I can actually view websites without having to open Task Manager to close it every five minutes, kinda nice (though I'm not used to using Firefox anymore and this new look is kinda meh).

      The reason I say it looks like a Win95 program because I had the color scheme set to that same dark blue on the task bar. XD its so blocky, when it loaded up for the first time I had flashbacks.

      I was using it all day yesterday and aside from the block look at the top, Firefox has never run better. I'm really impressed with how fast it is now compared to what it was. 

  18. Omg that must have taken hours upon hours. Now all you have to do is get used to flying with the griffon now. lol. Not just flapping, but actual flying using the 2 mount skill buttons. As long as you have enough height to start with you can dive down with V and then hit and hold C and space bar at the same time to regain all that altitude. As long as you keep doing that you can stay in the air indefinitely. I practiced the hell out of it with my captains airship pass because its so high up. You have the lava lounge pass so I bet that would be a great training area too. I don't see many people actually flying around so when I do it I'm usually the only one in the air flying over all the plebs while constantly diving down in front of them to show off.
  19. After almost a month of not playing I jumped on to finish up the Griffon mount since LWS4 was announced. Overall the collection was enjoyable. Its a shame they didn't make more adventure style collections like this, but at the same time once this content gets old, its going to be a bit difficult for solo players to obtain. The biggest hang ups being the champions and bounties required. It took a good 15-20 min to get a group for the Facet bounty, although Deadhouse seems to still be very active. Luckily I already had all the MP I needed and maxed it out catching a bounty train in the Riverlands. I dropped 3 Hero banners and a Karma bonfire to everyone's delight and grinded it out in one sitting.
  20. , really he just needed to beat the devil out of it some more (maybe add a few more happy little trees). That's all I got, can't wait for this to come out now.
  21. What an odd trailer. lol. If only he had a happy little squirrel hanging out with him. That looks like Cable in the painting and the robotic hand at the end. I wonder if they're going to keep him as a time traveler or if they'll reboot his character with a different background.
  22. Earlier
  23. Right now there are no guns, but all the big streamers seem to think they'll add them eventually, and I wouldn't doubt it. There are less guns in this game than there were in WAW. Right now its all cosmetics, XP boosters, and unlocks you could buy with your tokens you get from challenges and orders. I got an MG42 variant that gives me 15% more xp per kill. The launch of this game has been a train wreck though. I can't play with friends more than one match without getting booted to the main menu. I beat the campaign and it didn't disappoint. Overall it's top 3. The end was a bit anti-climatic in how it was done, but it definitely had several memorable moments.
  24. Its been about a month and a half since the expansion came out and theres no replayability here. I've done every event in the new maps at least once and the rewards are horrible and not worth the time to do again and again. Outside of the campaign there are no map wide events or even any events that require any of the new unique mount mechanics which is the biggest shame. With as easy as it was to get the mounts and level them up, we don't even need a basic raptor to do anything event wise. Not having big meta events like what we got with Heart of Thorns was one thing, but its another to not need the mounts or their abilities for over 90% of the new maps. The only thing we really need is raptor canyon jumping for one area and a springer high jump to access 2 other locations. In Heart of Thorns we needed the jumping shrooms and ley line gliding to get everywhere and grinding those masteries gave us something to do along with all the map wide meta events. I hated tangled depths at first and pocket raptors were a complete pain in the ass in verdant brink to begin with, but in Path of Fire, it went a bit too casual. Sure the desolation map can be brutal until you get the waypoints unlocked, but once thats done its just a bunch of enemies to avoid. The bounties can be fun the first few times in a zerg, but some scale horribly and are unable to be beaten in a massive blob. There are adventures again but they are in such out of the way locations I've only done one of them, one time and never bothered doing anymore. I don't know if there are mastery points locked behind them or not, but I'm glad theres enough MP that I don't have to drive myself insane trying to beat anymore adventures with a gold rating. I really like the mount system. It adds some amazing functionality to the game, but it also makes legendary weapons loose some of their luster and prestige. Since we're all on mounts now the footstep effect and trails of running around with a legendary aren't noticeable anymore. Instead we have to buy mount skins on the gemstore to be more noticeable. And that leads us to the RNG mount skin setup. The halloween mount skins in a 5 pack bundle was nice and reasonably priced. The mount adoption license for 400 gems to get a single random mount out of a pool of 30 is a bit much when there is only about 10 of those 30 skins that are really good looking or have fancy effects. I had some gems saved up and I converted a bunch of gold to gems and bought a 10 pack last week. I lucked out and got the legendary looking griffon mounts and a decent jackal skin.. but I also got 4 plain skimmer reskins and a recolored raptor. I wanted a decent raptor skin so I converted all my laurels to gold, sold all my t6 mats, mystic coins, etc. I just hit my 15k acheivement chest and got a free 400 gems and I got another 10 pack. I really lucked out that time and got the fire and lightening raptor skins, the flame and icy bunny skins and more crap. All in all I got about 8 skins out of 20 that I will use. 12 skins I have no interest in using at all seems like a huge waste of gems. I'm glad I didn't drop cash on this as that would have set me back about $80. If I paid $80 I'd have probably been pissed to get so many pointless skins. Anet said they won't do mount skins like this anymore, but the only other stand alone skin is a jackal skin for 2000 gems aka $25. If these skins I bought for 6,800 gems were actually 2k a piece I'd have been out 16,000 gems instead. In comparison to that this random mount system is a much better deal. But thats assuming they'd all be 2k gems a piece. I hope not because that will make mount skins so damn costly in the near future. Its a shame that we can't earn any of these skins in game. Those 2 griffons I got were basically legendary quality and make my legendary weapons unnoticeable by comparison. The end game of guild wars 2 is fashion wars and now the mounts are the biggest fashion accessory. And they can only be purchased instead of earned. Until a new map / living story episode comes out there is no end game except for farming existing content from the previous expansion or farming gold to convert to gems to buy more gem store mount skins. I feel bad for kids or people that don't have the ingame currency like I had to convert to gems. With christmas right around the corner I'm sure some people would have loved to gift a particular mount skin to one of their kids or to a friend, but thats impossible since its all random adoption licenses. It'd be like gifting someone a lotto ticket. Sure the rng mount licenses are a guaranteed mount and it wont just give you some random booster, but its still gambling imo like all the other loot box rng crap in every game now. I've seen people compare this style of in game rng to physical game rng like buying a pack of magic the gathering cards. But those can at least be traded and sold in real life, while these mount skins are account bound and can't be sold on the trading post. If they could be sold on the trading post like the contents of blt chests I doubt there would have been anyone complaining about this. The real kick in the ass and outrage will happen when elite looking mount skins are released as an account bound rng drop in blt chests like some of the glider skins are now.
  25. How is the loot bot/crate microtransaction situation? Is it all cosmetic or does buying them give an advantage in the multiplayer?
