    Finally got mounts. The QoL is amazing now. My sprint button will now get a much needed rest with the small 30 seconds of speed it provided of CD. Some of these mounts are ridiculous though.. some dude was riding a freaking massive whale wtf

    Ancient Civilization

    I watched alot of the Life after people show. Its amazing how fast nature can take everything back if humans just vanished one day. Aside from buildings taking a long time to fall apart, certain stainless steel will be our legacy. lol. In the right conditions a stainless steel sink could last a long long time. Imagine some future humans looking into what ruins are left of our civilization and finding a stainless steel kitchen sink tub. "It must have been extremely important to them to make it out of metal like this.. perhaps they worshiped it as a god." other people.. "This is far too advanced for what tools were available to them at the time..."

    Ancient Civilization

    Ever since that series "Life after People" it always made me wonder how old is humanity? Were always told we're but a blip on the map of time. But there has always been small bits of evidence here and there like things resembling batteries, and the Giza plateau structures being older than they should be. If we all died tomorrow, pretty much all evidence of our existence would be gone in 200 years. The earth would reclaim all of it. 200 years is practically nothing, so how many other times has civilization advanced and got wiped out by an asteroid or what not? If you ever get time to listen to something, these are worth it. Completely fascinating. If you don't have YT red, you can download these from podcast sites. Regardless of your opinion on Joe Rogan, Randall Carlson is just fascinating to listen too. He backs what he says with science. There are episodes with Graham Hancock as well who also does similar research, and they do this podcast together a few times. Those are very interesting as well, I'm not going to sit here and flood this single post with video scrolling. Ep #872, #725, #1284, #417 are all solid. #961 to a lesser extent because they invite some "professional skeptic" that just gets destroyed but wont shut up after he completely lost the argument. TL;DR: Humankind is much much older than we've been told. It's not really a conspiracy and more just prideful bullshit that archeologists are too stubborn to admit they're wrong.

    Final Fantasy XIV

    I defeated the Slyph primal, helped create the Crystal Braves and now I'm looking for the spy within the Flames, after half ass hunting the heretic in Snowblinds. On a side note the jumping puzzle thing in the current festival was hilariously easy. Coming from GW2 and its savagely brutal JPs, even its easiest one is much harder, and its festival ones are the most insane. But I'm not complaining I hate JPs with a passion and was pleased not having to go through that frustration. Fuck this halloween JP

    Alita: Battle Angel

    *reviving a dead topic again (I'm good at this)* So I finally got around to watching the movie tonight (I really like the idea of renting movies off of PSN). Honestly it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be and that CGI is fucking amazing (better then Ghost in the Shell's which I honestly didn't think was possible and those fucking battle scenes were awesome). Rosa Salazar did an amazing job bringing Alita to life and I have to give props for that as I didn't think any actress would be able to do so (her CGI was a lot better than the trailers showed though she is still in the uncanny valley for me (her look didn't throw me off or anything but I think a lot of the other Cyborgs looked a lot better than her and much more believable)). Now you're wondering, what do they do wrong Strider as someone who has read the source material (currently in the middle of re-reading it since I bought the Deluxe Edition Hardcover set that was recently released)? I'm not going to nitpick this to death like I did Ghost in the Shell as it will be a lot of spoilers for the source material and I suggest going and reading it if you can. I will say that they re-wrote a lot and took way too many artistic liberties when adapting this but it works for the film as it's telling it's own story not the original's (and it's obvious Cameron is a fan of the manga as he took great pains to adapt it in his own loving way). They changed a lot of characters names, changed a lot of scenes from the manga to make this work, threw Motorball in only as a means to an end (this was my biggest disappointment of the whole movie, we finally get a chance to see an adaptation of Motorball and they do a piss poor job of it and fucking make Jashugan look like a fucking punk (he's a fucking badass in the manga and is the fucking Grand Champion of Motorball)), changed a lot of Hugo's back story and story in general, and added in characters that didn't even exist in the manga (and changed quite a bit about Ido but god damn did they pick a perfect actor to portray him). If you want a full list of all the changes and aren't afraid of spoilers since you have no plans on reading the source (what the hell is wrong with you? go read it and if you need me too I'll send you my scanlations discreetly) let me know and I'll go into full detail about all the changes. Overall a solid 6.5/10 mostly for Rosa's portrayal of Alita, Christoph Waltz's Ido (god damn did he do a good job), and the fucking amazing CGI. Soundtrack wasn't too bad as well.

    Epic Games Store

    Too much bad publicity surrounds Epic Game Store for me to ever join. Talk about Chinese Spyware in Epic's launcher. Steam preordering being removed to make (timed) exclusives for Epic. Epic try to compete with Steam Sales without a Shopping Cart. Game Developers not knowing that Epic was going to make their games cheaper during said sales. Shenmue 3's broken promise for Steam Keys as they decided to go with Epic instead. I wouldn't even buy an Epic Humble Bundle at this point with how much bad publicity they're getting.

    I feel like most of the big games that go exclusive are things I'll buy on console anyways. They're spending a lot of money to pull these exclusives I dunno how long they can keep that up. BL3 will be the big test. We'll see how many PC only people can actually wait 6 months to get it. If they spend a bunch of money and not enough people buy it, they'll be hurting. I honestly don't care either way. I've opened steam up maybe 5 times in the last year, all to play 1 game. lol

    Aylanis Post-Shadowbringers

    From the album: FFXIV Pics

    As you can see Aylanis is no longer a cute cat girl but a sexy bunny girl now (she went through a magical race change by drinking a strange looking potion). Ok not quite bunny girl but a Viera since its one of the two new races that launched with Shadowbringers. This also just happens to be my current glamour set-up for Samurai (made up of two pieces of raid gear, two pieces of racial armor, and the head bandage from a random quest (hey, I'm going for the slight 2B look)). FYI the minion is Fran from FFXII if you were wondering (one of the Collector's Edition items).

    Aylanis in cat girl form before Shadowbringers as you already knew her from previous screenshots. This is exactly two days before early access launched.

    Final Fantasy XIV

    At least in the early stages of dungeons people aren't savage douches when it comes to loot. I can tell when I'm running with some exp people just grinding a new job. Out of my own sense of honor I always pass on gear I can't use. I got a new bow today at the end because everyone else passed on it and I was clearly the only bow user in the party. We cast lots over everything else because they were master of war or all classes stuff that was pretty good. This isn't the first time its happened. I like the system for what it is, even tho I prefer GW2/D3 style you get your own drops. But it beats B&S where the richest player always wins so long as you have the coin to outbid everyone on that item that's absolutely necessary to upgrade your weapon.... if it drops at all. 🙄

    If I remember correctly, jack was disinvited or removed from the partner program back during BF1 because he wasnt covering the content positively enough. It was either him or Cap.

    Now you know what my issues are with him Sledge. Jeremy is just an overbloated, opinionated asshat that wants attention. Don't get me wrong some of his stuff can be good and I agree with some of it but the majority of it now is just shit. It's either attacking women, other games journalists, or other youtubers (don't get me wrong I know PhillyD isn't exactly a saint but his piece on him awhile ago pissed me off (hey I like Phil's content, it's one of my major sources of news since I fucking hate watching traditional news coverage anymore)). He doesn't have a Patreon but has something similar (I can't remember the name of it but he talked about it in one of his videos, he needs to make all the money he can now that he launched his new Exclusive Games website. Gotta pay those writers and editors now). Jack has been pretty much done with BFV for awhile now. He still plays it but I haven't really heard him say anything good about it in months (outside of one or two things). Jack is also pretty upfront with what content he's paid to talk about (well that and it's law) and I've seen him bash games he's paid to praise (though underhanded and slight, can't make it too obvious). I don't watch his stuff as often as I used to (other, more entertaining things to watch) but I still drop in for some of his more goofy videos or the ones covering BF4 and BF3 (where he does live commentary while playing it, those are some of his best vids imo). Quite honestly there is only one youtuber who's opinion actually matters to be and that's MrHappy but mostly because he's an FFXIV content creator (see I told you I'm addicted to this game, I even follow FFXIV content creators because of my love for it). His guides for dungeons, raids, and primals is top notch and he's very open about everything he's paid to do (and only takes on sponsors who's products he actually likes). He's also has very similar tastes to mine when it comes to game and I respect his opinions on them (hell it was him and someone else that convinced me to buy FFXIV).

    Muh feels! 😭 Fruits Basket has been so good, but ugh. Two eps on Uotani and Kyoko. Why'd Kyoko have to die? It's just a sad fact at first, but now that they gave her character so much depth with Uotani's recollection it hurts. The New Years ep would have been even worse if I knew her like I do now.

    Eh from the outside it may seem like that, but really he's a troller of trolls. Its not really worth looking into, but without it ,it looks like hes just harassing females. The last one was some woman that paints her tits on twitch for a paid sub, and she was criticizing some women dancing on a stage at E3 for exploiting sexuality. It really affects no one, but he seems to pump out 3-4 videos a day just to make money. I still like his commentary on shitty business practices. But I do see where he is coming from on SJW bashing. Its one thing to have diversity, but we've gotten to a point where at times it does feel it "white males bad". At that point it's not diversity anymore. For instance when Tilda Swinton got picked for the Ancient One in Doctor Strange, there was all this "white washing" outrage how she was supposed to be Asian, but you're a racist to even think that Starfire or Ariel should be "white" because of the original source material. It shouldn't matter either way, but I'm sick of hearing about white washing and toxic masculinity. I mean shit they were even complaining about Hooper on Stranger Things this season. The whole thing is dumb. I get enough political crap on news feeds daily, I dont need it in my entertainment. I've watched some recent Jackfrags, Levelcap, and Westie videos and they sound completely deflated with BFV. Its really bad. Dritf0r stopped playing COD altogether despite covering it still. These companies have juiced their biggest hype men for all their worth. I even watched Nike get down on GW2 yesterday. I think were nearing a much needed crash or turning point. It may be a few years off still, but there will be some type of change. Whether it will be a good one will remain to be seen. There isnt a lot of goodwill out there between consumers and publishers right now.

    Maybe its just me, but over the last month I've realized I don't like the quartering anymore. I unsubscribed from him the other day. I first started following him because of his coverage of video games, but all he does now is make endless hate videos about whatever people are complaining about for the day.. and an abundance of them. Like every video has "woke", "feminism", "woke" again, etc. Or its a video about shaming somebody or some company, usually a female. And it feels like its all click bait topics about white male's being repressed or reverse racism without calling it that. I'm not entirely sure who his target audience is anymore.

    Final Fantasy XIV

    FF14 looks great and I'd love to try out the trial myself, but I'm so super casual now I doubt I'll ever play another MMO again. GW2 has been great for me because of solo content and no sub fee. The sub for FF14 does seem to provide for a better gameplay experience and with the company making consistent revenue they have a constant cash flow to keep bringing in more content. I love GW2, but with no expansions on the horizon I don't know where the game is going from here. Living world is good, but if they just keep making more endless maps it'll break the community up more by spreading the population around so much multiple maps will start emptying up. If GW2 had a sub, I'd have stopped paying for it a long time ago. Not because I don't love the game, but unless I can dedicate at least 5 hours a week to a game I'm paying a monthly fee for I can't justify paying for it. At that point I'd be one of those people with a gym membership that never goes there.
