    Themes back up

    After a long time, I finally put the themes back up. There was a black friday sale and I got the themes renewed at 50% off which was a nice bonus. I'll update the background images at some point.

    XBOX Series X

    Its just a PC tower with a disc drive and a green glowy top. looks like something from ibuypower tbh. I'm on board with PS5 just because I've always been a console gamer first and foremost. It honestly could be even uglier and I wouldn't care as long as the games are good, which in itself are few and far between. My biggest concern with PS5 is these mock ups of screens on the DS5... please no. I remember when I was much younger being super hype about that type of stuff, but now I'm old and grumpy. The damn DS4's battery life is utter shit compared to anything I've ever used. I don't want screens or lights on my controller. It wastes battery and makes it more expensive to replace. No one has successfully reinvented the controller yet. Nintendo failed multiple times, and they stopped making steam controllers from what I've heard.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

    While I agree the 725 is still OP, the M4 doesn't need a nerf. Meh, its just this games M16/FAMAS/ACR/UMP45 etc. It's a jack of all trades gun, but it doesn't have the TTK of the AK or Oden. Anyone with better aim is going to beat the M4 9/10 times, and those same players aren't dumb enough to challenge long range with these weapons. People have moved away from the camping double claymores. Of course I don't play TDM, but it was prevalent in Domination and Headquarters. Less so now I guess that people unlocked their camo challenges and what not and people have started playing the game. I still don't love FPS as much as I use to, but I enjoy a few hours here and there. I use to be able to sit in front of the TV for 12 hours straight and never get tired of it. The Battle Pass system is pretty good as it is now. Apparently in BO4 they started out good and got shitty soon after. We'll see how it goes. There are 100 tiers That will take you 200 hours to complete. I think the first 80 are free? I could be wrong but it goes up to a certain amount and then you have to buy a battle pass upgrade to get the last however many tiers. These last tiers are cosmetic only, and you can choose to buy at any given time instead of the start. That way if you're a dedicated player but you ran short on time one season due to personal life issues, you don't have to spend your COD points to upgrade if you know you wont make it all the way through the tiers. The 2 weapons will take about 20 hours to get someone calculated as they're both sub 30 tier. Basically it takes longer to get to the max soft cap rank 55 than to obtain these weapons so I feel like thats pretty fair. The question is what will they do when the season is over? Will they sell them individually if you missed out on the free period? Basically you don't have to spend a dime and just play an hour a day for 2 months to get the weapons is what it breaks down too. People are still complaining about that, but if you aren't playing MP for at least 20 hours in 2 months why did you even buy this game? If you're an ultra hard core COD fan, you can grind out the whole battle pass and get more COD points than you put into it and buy the next one with your earnings. So in theory if all you do is play COD you won't have to spend any money outside of the season 1 battle pass premium purchase. All of this sounds too good to be true for Activision The store is where they decided to be douchebags. They have cosmetic bundles that are around $15-20 each. They come with an operator skin, weapon charm, some stickers, a blue print (a gun skin), and maybe a calling card or emblem. The price isn't the issue, the issue is you can only see what they show you, and if you want more options you have to buy a bundle for a new one to appear in that spot. Apparently they rotate out every 24 hours, but you could be waiting days or weeks to get the one you want. Impatient people will spend a ton of money just to get the one they want to rotate into the store. I mean more power too them, but it seems like thats a small minority of players. They'd make more money just letting people pick whatever they want overall and the whales are gonna whale regardless. I think XclusivelyAce, without mentioning it directly, noticed that patent matchmaking in affect. COD has Score Based Match Making... basically trying to keep you at a 50% W/L 1.0 KDR. People hate it and IW has refused to acknowledge its there.... honestly git gud though. I've started tearing off some 38-6's 21-4's here and there. Its possible, its just not gonna be every match. Anyways Ace basically stated once he bought a bunch of skin bundles he noticed he started getting lobbies with scrubs that were oblivious to any type of map awareness and he was just stomping people into the ground. Basically he was put into less skilled lobbies so people could see his bling in their kill cams. The game isn't perfect, but I think is pretty enjoyable. It's better than anything I've played since Black Ops 2, but it doesn't quite beat anything before that.... except MW3... that was utter trash.

    Wonder Woman - Official Trailer

    I'm really hyped for this. The first one was super enjoyable even though the end was mad cheese. Hopefully they don't do that this time. Gal Gadot is so pretty and kicks ass. They really couldn't have picked a better actor for this role.

    Aylanis Dragoon 1

    From the album: FFXIV Pics

    Current Dragoon glamour. It's a mix of both their ARR Artifact Armor (the Drachen Helm and Gauntlets), their Heavensward Artifact Armor ( Dragonlancer's Boots), one of their ARR PvP sets (Behemoth Queen's Chestpiece), and the Miqo'te female starting skirt (all died black of course). The weapon is the glowing version of the Nidhogg Weapon's obtained during his extreme mode (Seeing Horde Spear).

    Aylanis Dark Knight 1

    From the album: FFXIV Pics

    Current Dark Knight Glamour. Little later then I said I would post it but I got busy on Sunday and wasn't able to edit the screenshot down. This is based entirely off of a glamour from Eorzea Collection with one minor modification being adding 2B's blindfold instead of the head bandage. I like it because it's got a samurai influence going and since Dark Knights have only one katana that they can use I just had to go with this.

    Aylanis Samurai 2

    From the album: FFXIV Pics

    Another with the katana drawn. This glamour works great with the Dead Hive set weapons (based off the orignal weapons that dropped from Extreme Ravana back in Heavensward) due to the crystalline look of the weapon, the jewel on the scabbard, and the hanging jewel from the chest piece (a Mog Station glamour set, the one that pairs with the flaming wheels mount). I have a glamour for my Ninja using the same set just with the Dead Hive Ninja weapons (and in fact this one is based off of that glamour as I was maining ninja when I made it, the only differences being the blindfold (head bandage originally) and the boots). This is probably my favorite original glamour I've thought up using ideas from similar one posted on Eorzea Collection.

    Favorite Anime Intros/Outros

    This series never fails to deliver such beautiful music. I'm glad they stuck with S1's opener as rare as that is these days. But this ED is so good.

    Aylanis Samurai 1

    From the album: FFXIV Pics

    Current Samurai glamour. This is the one I was alluding to in my post in the FFXIV topic when I said those 2B thigh boots would look fucking sweet with it (which I finally got two weeks ago, I'll post screen shots of my 2B Sam glam later. I had to change because everyone in their mom is running around with it right now). The blindfold is also from 2B's glamour set.

    Aylanis Paladin 2

    From the album: FFXIV Pics

    Sword and shield drawn. Look at that beautiful glowing sword in all it's greatness (and yes it's related to the katana in my post-shadowbringers screenshots I posted awhile ago). I'll post my Dark Knight glamour screenshots tomorrow because I've really gotten into tanking this expansion (I just love tanking as a Paladin and Dark Knight, so much fun).

    Aylanis Paladin 1

    From the album: FFXIV Pics

    Current Paladin glamour that's based off of one posted on Eorzea Collection (a glamour posting site for FFXIV). https://ffxiv.eorzeacollection.com/glamour/3075/holy-knight The original, I just changed the shield because I'm not a huge fan of the one used even though I do like the effect it has on it.

    Aylanis Bard 1

    From the album: FFXIV Pics

    Current Bard glamour (had to change it after I got that sweet ass chest piece she's wearing) and yes I went back to be a cat girl. Aylanis was originally created as a Miqo'te and that's just how she'll have to remain (it feels weird playing her as anything else, I love how Viera's look but I just can't stay away from how she originally was).

    Lets take a moment of appreciation for how utterly bad ass Maki's fight was on this weeks Fire Force. Same dude Arthur struggled with. That rig Vulcan set her up with is wicked. I'm really not ready for season 1 to end. Same with Dr. Stone. Both totally different series with outstanding world building. Its gonna feel a bit empty when they're done. MHA will probably start picking up steam soon though. Stars Align has been a nice surprise, and Azur Lane is totally my guilty pleasure this season. *ahem* But I digress.

    The Mandalorian

    Well I guess since its the hottest meme on the internet right now the big spoiler is pretty much unavoidable at this point. I'll still not mention it. Ep 2 wasn't bad, but it was def more of a set up and build ep. Ep 3 was worth that build. BTW its 8 eps not 6, so wait 2 more weeks than originally I said. The small bit that was awesome though was vibroblades! They made a quick appearance this ep.

    I would say this would induce a bigger backlash than Diablo Immortal, but I don't think enough people even care about Half-Life anymore to get mad about it.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    Let me preface this by saying that I've never played Dark Souls or that style of game. After talking with some friends who have, let me state that if you don't like Dark Souls or that type of game, this game is probably not for you. I didn't know what to expect coming into this. The devs said DS was their inspiration and they've seemed to borrow heavily from the mechanics. When you start the game it asks you to pick a difficulty. There is Story, Normal, Hard, and Jedi Master I believe? Each difficulty has a set of meters to show you what you're getting into. Story being the easiest has the parry timing meter maxed out, and the damage taken really low. So even if you don't like DS games but you want to experience the story, they are accommodating to that. Basically the harder the difficulty the more damage you take and hitting the parry moves are unforgiving if you mistime it. Combat is slow and methodical. You must block, dodge, parry, and choose when you attack. Only the most basic enemies can you slice down without much thought. And there aren't many of those unless they're served as fodder to allow the bigger enemies to try to get a hit in on you while you're distracted. At least at first. As I gain more force abilities I've noticed combat against mobs is getting easier. But to start out you only have an ability to slow a single target. You can block almost everything, but at the cost of a stamina meter. Which I've only ran out of once so far. Each enemy type has an unblockable attack. When this triggers they'll glow red letting you know you must parry. I'd say you can only get 2-3 swings of your saber in at a time before having to evade or parry. The bigger beasts I don't have much problem with, but Storm Troopers with rocket launchers are bullshit. They're always far away on a pearch shooting rockets while you're occupied with smaller enemies. Rockets hurt, and they can't be dodged or deflected. You just have to back roll or run away out of the blast. The only advantage is that they may accidentally shoot their own men and kill them saving you a little bit of time. One other gripe I have is trying to parry on a narrow area. This game doesn't have many if any invisable walls or any kind of mechanic that will assist you from falling off the edge. Sometimes fights take place on narrow structures and when you parry, if you do it just a little wrong you'll fall off the side and die. Also leveling up results in skill points. There are no true levels, but if you get killed by someone/thing in between skill points you lose all that XP. You can go back and hit the enemy that killed you to get all the XP back, but it has a time limit on. Save locations act as your place to spend skill points and "rest". The HP system relies on healing canisters that as far as I can see only replenish when you choose rest at these areas. It will also refill your HP bar. When you do this it will also respawn every enemy you've killed in the area. You'll have to choose wisely on if full HP is helpful too you. For the most part these points are placed well for the pace of the story, but a few are a bit of an asshole. So far every map has had places I can't get into until I get the right force powers. While fighting mechanics can be stressful, I'd say the game is 70% puzzles and exploring and 30% battle. With that you'll find hidden chests with health cannister expansions and cosmetics. The light saber has 5 different customizable parts, and your outfit, BD1, and your ship can all be skinned by things you find in the chest. Its an interesting experience by far for me. I never wanted to play a DS style game but here I am, it will probably be the only one.

    The Mandalorian

    Since its only 6 eps it shouldn't be hard to keep the quality up. Honestly it's for the best. With only a series budget rather than a blockbuster film budget they'll be forced to cut corners and be more innovative than just relying on green screens. They'll have to be more traditional in their approach. I can totally look pass some spotty CGI for the really good practicals they had. Oh the quality of the cartoon is absolute ass. I watched the first ep and even with its original aspect ratio... being stretched on a big smart TV it looks rough. You'd basically need to get an old school 20in CRT TV to see it in its best quality.
