    Whether you were a big fan or not today is a tragic loss for the music world. Chester Bennington, lead singer and front man for Linkin Park, was found dead today at 41. I was a huge LP fan when I was younger (though I sort of lost touch with them over the years, their music past Meteora was so so) so this hits pretty hard for me. Their music, his music, helped me through a lot. RIP Chester, though you're gone your music and message will always remain.

    I'm adopting a cat from the shelter. We went there last saturday and picked her out. A little kitten 4 months old. We're waiting to hear back from the place about when to pick her up. They give her full vaccinations, spay and a month of flea treatment. They have to spay her before they can release her to us, so we just gotta wait a few more days to find out when we can get her. They got hit with multiple large hoarding cases recently of saved animals and theres alot of volunteers there now. I hope this shelter doesn't screw this up. We have little cat toys and a new litter pan all ready for her.

    LOL. Well I guess you learn something every day. I prefer olives, and not fruits that are sweet on my pizza. Especially as toppings. I like meats and also fungi known as mushrooms. Edit: Sledge wtf. People down here in the south like banana and mayo sandwiches. The most vile creation I've ever heard of.

I really loved the dark take on A Woman Called Fujiko Mine. This one looks to go back to the light hearted comedic style. I have no problem with that. Lupin has always been one of my favorite series. I love the old animation style mixed with new effects.

    Sledge you won't be disappointed, HIMYM is an amazing show. I was heartbroken when they ended it as it's probably one of my favorite shows ever (great humor, great cast (NPH does an amazing job portraying Barney), and some of the best jokes I've heard in years). Sadly I can't really say I have many favorite old TV shows as growing up I never really had control of the TV (my father controlled it and we spent a lot of time watching Wrestling and random stupid shit I couldn't get into) and when I did I spent most of that time watching cartoons. The only real shows I got into were Star Trek Voyager (the one show both my father and I liked watching), Star Trek: TNG, X-Files (I was a huge X-Files junky up until Mulder disappeared, could never get into it after that), the good shows on MTV (like Daria), and a few other shows here and there (yea the 90's kid in me shows, I was also a huge Power Rangers fan (the one show I watched religiously)).

    While I chose this track the whole OST is a fucking eargasm of amazing music, this is just the culmination when you beat the game (and considering how it ends this song is extremely fitting). As of playing this game this has been and will always be my favorite soundtrack of any game (ABZU comes in second but I have yet to beat the game). This game has no voice acting and little to no story (except for what you make of it) except for snippets on random walls/shrines. The game relies entirely on the soundtrack to set its pace and it couldn't of done a better job. If you never get the chance to play the game do yourself of favor and listen to the soundtrack, its definitely worth it. Of course I had to put a FFXIV song here. If it wasn't for this trailer/video I probably never would of started playing FFXIV and I freaking adore this song (I've listened to it on repeat so many times I actually have it memorized, song's name is Answers btw). Such a beautiful song and by far my favorite one off the entirety of FFXIV's discography (which is massive now and has some amazing music. Other personal favorites include Titan's Theme, Ramuh's Theme, Dragonsong (the theme song for Heavensward), and Revolutions (theme song for Stormblood)). FYI this video is how they wrapped up the story from the failed 1.x version of FFXIV and what led us into A Realm Reborn. There's plenty more I could post but those two stand out the most for me. Honorable mentions would be Zone of the Ender's OST (first game, I wasn't really into the 2nd Runner's OST), Ace Combat 5 and 0's OST (both extremely good soundtracks), Chrono Cross's OST (there are some amazing songs in those 3 discs), and every Chocobo Theme ever produced (hey I love the Chocobo Themes).

    Fairy Tail is over.. and the final chapter was decent. No hentai fluff crap like I was expecting. Instead it had a nice retrospect back to the first handful of chapters of the entire series. As much as I hated and complained about the ending, I will miss this manga. Its hard to believe I've been reading it for 11 years. I'll have to pick up some other manga to read now.

    Out of all the avengers that have multiple films, the Thor movies bring in the least amount of money. Only the first Captain America film and The Incredible Hulk did worse than the Thor films. Cap 2 and 3, All the Iron Man films, Guardians, 2 generations of Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Multiple X-Men films both good and bad ones, Deadpool, and even Big Hero 6 did better at the box office. X_X Ant-Man finished with $200k less, and outside of that Cap and Hulk movie, the rest of the Marvel films below Thor are some of their absolute worst (Ghost Rider, Daredevil/Electra, and all the Fantastic Four films). I guess they are trying to spruce it up with comedy.... hopefully they don't go too far. I'm not a firm believer in the wisdom that comedic relief makes a movie better.

    Initial thoughts, meh. I pretty much got what I was expecting from this, a lot of what we've already seen gameplay wise with minor tweaks to enemy A.I., weapons, and class adjustments. Don't get me wrong the opening story mission is pretty epic in its own way and can be challenging at certain points but the Cabal felt like the Cabal from D1, I noticed no real difficulty change. New Cabal types did throw me off a bit until I learned how they fought but overall it felt like I was fighting the same Cabal I tangled with on Mars. I do like how enemies will charge at you with a melee weapon now when you're in close proximity, made going for those melee kills a little more risky (as a Hunter anyways, I still need to try Warlock (I won't be trying Titan as I have no interest in the class)). Overall its a nice change to actually see a story at play here and knowing what this faction of Cabal's aim was, instead of fighting enemies that have no real drive only to be set pieces for a strike or fodder for daily bounty grinding. I did try out the strike but sadly I was placed in at the end against the final boss so I didn't actually get to experience the full thing but as DX points out he's an HP sponge and the weapons they give you barely do any damage so it's tedious (fun, I like some of the mechanics but tedious none-the-less). I plan on running it again tomorrow to, hopefully, get the full experience so I can give my thoughts on it. I have no want to play Crucible since they went 4v4 so you won't be getting any thoughts on that. As for Hunters, the class as a whole hasn't changed any since D1 (Gunslinger wise, I don't know about Arcstrider). Outside of loosing some of our options in the gunslinger sub-class menu and gaining some new/tweaked ones it pretty much felt the same and I felt completely at home while playing (though I had to brush off the initial rust form not playing in over a year). I'm not entirely happy about the Golden Gun changes, while six shots is nice and it will one shot normal enemies I don't like how it feels weaker against stronger foes (not like 3 shots was any better) where in some cases it'll take 2-3 shots to kill them (the harpies on the final boss battle in the strike are 2 shots, which sucks since clearing out trash is kind of key to winning that fight). I like the dodge reload option, comes in handy when you're in a pinch and need more ammo (especially when you're using a Hand Cannon). Grenade options are still your standard fair and tripmines are still the way to go (imo, I didn't actually try out the other grenade types but they're exactly the same from D1). Overall Gunslinger Hunters will feel right at home with the class, it's the same from D1 with some minor tweaks (some good, some bad). It'd be nice to get a chance to use those bottom options in the third section of abilities so I could give a more complete review but for now this is what I got. Oh yea, Sunshot is a fucking beast of an exotic and I see it getting a nerf come release. That Hand Cannon is way to powerful for what it is. Overall I'm not really impressed with D2 as it stands now. Granted this is a beta (and compared to D1's alpha and beta a pretty poor one) and an extremely short one at that I still don't see myself buying this. Is it fun? Yes but so was D1 up until you got to max level and had to start endlessly grinding for better loot you weren't always guaranteed to get. Unless there is some fundamental change to how endgame works in D2 I see this game suffering from the same problems D1 suffered from. Though I doubt my I'll change my mind I will be playing again tomorrow to actually do the full strike and try out Warlock and the Arcstrider sub-class so I'll most likely have more to say then.

    I just beat this and it was pretty good. The first game was still my favorite because Lee, Clem, and Kenny were a better trio. As you can tell from the trailer, Clem is an NPC in this game. You're Javier, basically a upstart baseball player that pulled a Pete Rose before he got big. It's not as mysterious and dark as Lee's past. The characters are hit and miss that come along and enter your group. I will say there is more twisted decisions to make in this game. The story does a good job of steering you in feel a certain way, only to make you feel bad that you chose to do a certain thing later on... but at the same time not want to try and take it back. This game follows the 5 chapter format like Season 2 did. I still feel like the base first game felt significantly longer than both. Season 2's decisions still play into the story, and are given to you in a series of well placed flashbacks that bridge the two games together. Although I think these flashbacks also made the game feel shorter, because every chapter featured them. Sometimes they were Clem's, sometimes they were Javier's. So in a six segment chapter, one segment was always a flashback rather than the current events at hand. This made the game feel even shorter than Season 2, and in some parts it was. Some chapters were 1 hour and 15-30 min rather than the full +2 hours Season 2's chapters were. Plus the ending was pretty conclusive, and the finale was kinda anticlimatic. Still I enjoyed the experience. I'll def get the DLC. My biggest gripe is they still like to throw in a QTE near middle to almost end that is brand new and no where else before and after in the game just to make sure you die at least once. I mean that has to take extra work to code in a mechanic that only is used once.

    These are my initial thoughts. I played the first mission through with all 3 classes, and played the strike with the Warlock. I haven't dived into PVP yet as I had completely lost my bearings on how to play Destiny and would get my shit stomped until I run a few more strikes. First and foremost, thank the heavens that the stupid ass sprint fatigue is gone. You can sprint, stop and sprint instantly again. That was the absolute worst in D1. Especially in tense situations when you had low health. It def wasn't good for my first PS4 controller's thumb stick, as the covering eventually sheered off of it. The difficulty feels like it has been taken up a bit. I died a few times on the story mission as Warlock and Titan, but oddly enough I never died as Hunter... that might have been because it was my 3rd play through, but the class itself and the exotic you get for the Hunter had a lot to do with it as well... more on that in a bit. The story mission was decent. It was lengthy, and you could skip the cut scenes without any loading delays. It gave you enough to use your super at least 2 times... you could probably fit 3 if you just used them as soon as you got them. I've always saved mine for "oh shit" moments or opportune times against yellow bars or massive trash mobs. The AI has improved a bit as well. The longer glide jumps that Warlock and Titan have aren't much of an advantage to throw off the AI's aim. You can get clobbered floating around. The Cabal is more aggressive than in D1.. I guess since this is a special faction of them. Certain ones will whip out a blade and melee you if you get too close, some wield two massive cleavers and will hurt you really bad if you get hit. John Ryan must have given anet's secrets to jumping puzzles and bad environmental clipping when he left. There are some frustrating and needless dips around objects you can hide behind. I found myself getting stuck on these when trying to move from cover. There is a lot of jumping going on in the mission and strike. I don't really mind this in what is offered because most the jumps can all be made by the standard single jump. Anyways, the mission doesn't really have a boss, but does have a section not featured in the E3 demonstration. They kinda baby you into fighting the few unique yellow bar cabals. Your first encounter they're just a red bar, then a red with a shield, then a yellow with a shield, and then a triple yellow bar with a shield. Psions are back and annoying as ever. They'll still die in 1 uncharged melee hit, but their wave attack will knock you up in the air... it's very annoying, and it goes back to the whole being in the air too long is dangerous deal. I mean you get knocked way up into the air to where it takes a few seconds to fall back down. The strike was long... longer than any strike I remember in D1. That's not a bad thing though, It was more fluid and sectioned. I don't think these will be "run past everything and get to the boss" type deals anymore. Each segment of the fight was necessary to activate the device that launched you across the map onto the next segment. It was mostly your standard gun down trash mobs at first, but it got a bit intense in one of the rooms where the cabal animals kept charging in. The boss fight was where the strike shined though. It wasn't easy, and was almost nightfall hard. However my horrible teammates might have had something to do with it. The Titan on my fire team never once put up a barrier. wtf? We died on the last stage of the boss 3 times. His last 20% or so of HP he just goes apeshit and gets ultra aggressive. If you're the last guardian standing, you're going to die. His big ass will chase you down and blast you to pieces while you try to revive someone. I ran behind a pylon once and his ass followed me around it and destroyed me. I will say I didn't care too much for the spinning drill area. It's pretty annoying to fight and keep track of which layer of drill is coming at you. As it stands for the beta, you only get legendary gear for the strike and PvP, Its only weapons at that. I got the same pistol I already had and a scout rifle that no class came with. I also forgot how annoying Hobgoblins were... and the standard Vex enemies will now cover up their weak spot if you initially miss it it felt like. I'll have to pay more attention next time. The weapons haven't changed much. The autorifles available were meh. They jumped around too much. The hand cannons were decent. I chuckled because the kinetic one was called The Devil Better... I guess that's a play on The Devil You Know/Don't. I didn't try the shotgun, the sniper was eh... but SMGs are beastly as hell. You won't hit anything after medium range like you can cheese with a hand cannon, but up close these melt anything really fast. The Titan had a solar SMG and it ripped through the cabal solar shields like no one's business. The grenade launchers were pretty stout too... but those are for trash mobs IMO. The fusion rifle was still the best. I didn't have access to a rocket launcher... The Warlock might have had one, but I was too stuck on the fusion rifle to look. Only having 6 shots is an adjustment though. (but its the perfect PVP nerf) I ran Pulse Rifle and SMG combos when I could. Pulse Rifle was my favorite legendary weapon. The Scout Rifle was terrible. It fired really slow and didn't seem to do much more damage than the pulse. Energy ammo dropped frequently, way more than its special ammo counterpart in D1 did. I never found myself running out of energy ammo.. in fact I ran out of kinetic a few times before coming even close on energy. This was great solely for my favorite exotic in the beta which I never stopped using the whole mission. The Warlock... Dawn blade is as OP as I thought it would be. I shredded every yellow almost instantly with it, while the Nova bomb didn't seem to do as much because its not really that precise I guess. Its like a slow moving Hunter scatter nade now. It will home in on enemies. The glide is insane... its longer and higher than the other classes. I guess this is for dawn blade, because all that floating we saw in the videos is from the actual jump.. not the super itself. The healing rift is by far the best utility skill of every class. Screw damage rift.. healing rift can out heal mobs shooting you... it was a lifesaver in the strike when I was last guardian standing and had to revive. That being said, Warlock got the worst weapon set up for the beta. The exotic they give you to play with is some shitty arc damage AR. It has a small mag and doesn't do much DPS. Plus I saw one arc shield the entire time through the mission and strike. The Titan was... well a Titan. I didn't try Fist of Havoc because I already know what its like despite the changes to it. The barrier is interesting. You can't shoot through it nor can you shoot through the bubble from the sentinel ult. This is a pretty big nerf. Using the shield itself was pretty fun. I crushed a single yellow bar instantly with it but struggled on the triple yellow. I couldn't figure out how to throw it because I was too busy spamming the charge-melee with it instead. Overall its not really my favorite. The Titan jump is virtually the same in all 3 choices from the first game. The exotic the Titan had was no joke though. "Sweet Business" is outstanding for PvE, I don't see it being as good in PvP. Its a kinetic minigun that shoots slow for about 1.5 seconds and then shoots like you'd expect a minigun too but its laser accurate at top RPM. The mag is large enough to hold down the trigger and take out 4-5 enemies in succession. Before I even go into the Hunter, let me say that it got, hands down, the best exotic to play with. Sunshot must be what Fatebringer felt like. Holy shit this thing is a beast. super low recoil, great range, and exploding enemies? I bet it gets nerfed. It's a solar hand cannon, so it was a joy tearing through solar shields.... which was featured heavily in the mission. This is the weapon I'll be running as my exotic once/if I get it. Paired with the Hunter's faster reload off critical hits, it more than made up for its 8 shot mag. This gun was made for the Hunter. I didn't play any arc strider, I stuck with Gunslinger. I leave it to Strider for a better review when he gets his hands on this class. I never played hunter in the first game so I have nothing to go by. I did like the 6 shot golden gun though. It seemed to perform as well as Dawn Blade on triple yellow bars, but unlike dawn blade, you have to actually have to be precise. I mean for big fat Cabal it wasn't an issue, but faster moving Fallen or Vex it requires more skill. I stuck with the triple jump, and I liked it better than anyone else jump. You get to where you want without being exposed in the air like the other two classes and it offers more mobility without the aid of a super. I found a few jumps to be more tedious to make than with Warlock/Titan, but in a fight It was far better. I'm not sure how I feel about the utility skill Hunter has though. It doesn't benefit the group at all. One is essentially shadow step that instantly recharged your melee... the other is a dodge that instantly reloads your weapon. I used the latter because I was having way too much fun with Sunshot... and furthers my belief that this exotic was made for the Hunter class. The dodge does recharge a lot faster than the barrier or rifts. I'll run Strikes with Titan and Hunter and try some PvP tomorrow. I'll report back on what else sticks out to me.

    Whenever we potty train a dog we use Puppy pads and poop pick up bags: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Out-Moisture-Lock-Training-Pads-50-ct/50103910 https://www.walmart.com/ip/Out-Rainbow-Pick-Up-Bags-120ct/15204545 Any pees on the puppy pads are easily thrown in the garbage and have no real odor since they have odor lock. Poops outside (or poops on the puppy pad) get bagged up and put into a small plastic garbage can outside dedicated just for the poop bags. These poops bags have never once torn on me compared to cheap ones from the dollar store. These puppy pads are far superior to paper towels to for cleaning up accidents too for quick spot cleaning a carpet until you can hit the spot with a carpet cleaner. My brother potty trained his 3 boxers in the same way, except his garbage can outside is a full 30 gallon size with garbage bags and he uses a shovel instead of poop bags. I have no idea about the quality of some of the products on that link. The fake turf with grass would probably work for small dogs for a bit, but then there would be the urine odor lingering. The poop septic thing sounds very off to me.. if that thing isn't fully sealed, heavy rain could flood it and make a disaster in the yard. I prefer to keep it simple. Puppy pads, poop bags and a spray bottle of windex antibacterial cleaner with paper towels to clean any surface contamination.

    Ok so I finally watched this and I'll give my thoughts on it (because I know everyone wants to hear them (yea I know you don't)) but be forewarned I have some major issues with this movie. I will point out that I did not hate this movie, as an action/sci-fi movie it's pretty damn good and the visuals are fucking amazing (some of the best cg I've seen in a long time, damn did they do a good job on it). The soundtrack is also pretty damn amazing, has hints of music from the original animated movie in their. Now anyways lets get on with what I thought (from now on things will be in spoilers, read if you wish too but I'm doing this for those who don't want anything ruined). The Bad: The Good: Again I didn't hate this movie but as a self-respecting GitS fan I cannot call it a welcome addition to the franchise. It's a good action/sci-fi flick and I recommend giving it a watch if you're not a huge fan of the franchise (and by that I mean like me, if you have a passing interest in the series give it a watch but you'll be sorely disappointed in it if you're a die hard fan). The only thing I fear though is what this means for a Gunm/Battle Angel Alita adaptation (it's in the works but considering how much they butchered the source material for this movie I fear what they'll do with BAA).

    That is ok. I have a few of them like that. If you ever get new set of knives, invest in a KME or Edge Pro rod and stone system. The problem with the one you have is it totally relies on steady hands and consistent strokes. If you don't have the blade perfectly vertical you'll grind up your edge. A guided rod system ensures a perfect swipe of the blade edge no matter what. I've been thinking about getting a KME myself, because it seems the most simplistic that gets the job done the best. I'm a huge knife nut. You'll also want to consider paying attention to the steels of your knives. If they're just listed as "stainless" you're probably just getting old school 420HC blades which don't hold and edge very long... this is the type of steel that's been used on knives for decades. VG-10, S30V, and S35VN are newer steels with superior edge retention.. not sure if there are any kitchen sets that use these though. Just don't get anything in M4, M390, S90V, or S110V. These steels will hold an edge better than any knife... but sharpening them back up are a nightmare because of it. They were built to be insanely wear resistant. I was thinking about buying a knife with M390, and then I watched a video of a guy doing a sped up time lapse of him sharpening it on the KME. He said it was 40 minutes... for just one side! Screw that! I can get my S30V knives sharpened up in about 5 minutes. I think that's the perfect balance. http://knifeinformer.com/discovering-the-best-knife-steel/ Here are charts and descriptions of steels. EDIT: Lansky makes a guided rod system too, but I hear way too many people complain about it in the knife groups I'm in. Its way cheaper than the KME, Edge Pro, and Wicked Edge systems... I was going to get one but too many people have issues with it not sharpening knives correctly. Right now I used the Work Sharp, field sharpener... but I just don't have good muscle memory to not make an asymmetrical grind on my blades.

    I know I made a topic like this a long time ago, but a ton of games have come out since then. What are you favorite/most memorable original game tracks? This is still my all time favorite track. The powerful start still sends chills through my spine. I'll never forget when a friend handed me a demo disc for the first game before it came out which featured the start with the ship, ending with the Hydra boss. I was so blown away by how awesome it was I couldn't wait for the full game. Then after falling in love with how the first game played, and its story I was hyped for this game when it was announced. The opening was just epic. It's really tough for me to pick just one track from this game. As a whole its probably my favorite total OST of any game. But this track sticks with me because its from one of the most intense parts of the game that had a huge sense of urgency while it kept you in side scroll camera mode. You'd have to play it to understand how powerful the moment was. From about 1:40 and beyond was the section used for this mission. Ace Combat's first game got that ole fashion rename/mistranslation. PS1 shows up on the scene, games were true 3D experiences for the first time. I was like 12-13 when this came out, and I remember going to a friends house to spend the night and we stayed up playing this game til the morning. We were blown away, and this music was such a rush. Ace Combat was literally the first game I ever got my hands on in the Playstation era, and the rest is history.

    Talk about a feels trip. I can't say many games if any other made me shed a tear... but this game did. Holy shit was the ending sad. The ending theme was comforting after what transpired. Probably my favorite sonic track ever. I've heard the updated one for Sonic Mania and I cant wait to play this zone again. I remember first getting my Genesis. Sonic 2 was my first game and this zone blew me away. I was so pissed when they brought this game "back" as some BS multiplayer only game. This game was so fucking good for PS1. The OST was so good too. A flight game where you could hover too... it was so innovative. Ace Combat was amazing, but this was so different because you could slow down to a stand still and fly through tight corridors and vertical shafts. Oh man. Ridge Racer was THE first racing game I played on PS1. Before Need for Speed which was a 3DO port. I fell in love immediately. Every time a new one came out a friend would get it and I'd come over and we'd tackle it. The most frustrating thing about Ridge Racer over NFS and other racing franchises was that hitting the wall was devastating. It damn near brought you to 0mph if you did it. I probably couldn't deal with that type of game today... the whole game relied on track memory. Even after you got the black and white car from beating the space invaders mini game, it was still a challenge... just less forgiving. When this one came out it has a real lyrical soundtrack which was pretty much unheard of before this time. It was truly original too. This wasn't like a Rob Zombie/Twisted Metal type deal. This was in house talent... It was daring, and it worked so well. This track plays in my head to this day when I think of racing games. Speaking of racing games... before Twisted Metal, there was this... Talk about frustrating but hysterical. Road Rash was amazing. Motorcycle racing where you could beat the shit out of your opponents? Unheard of! Crowbars, Cattle Prods, Chains, Bats... this was madness... you could whack your opponents off their bikes.. but they could too.. and along the way there would be obstacles like cars, animals... and even cow shit. The game's electric guitar rock was crazy good for the time. This game also had a title screen cheat code where you could get the "phantom bike" which had a shit ton of turbos and instant top speed acceleration. If you wrecked on it, you'd fly for a good minute before hitting the ground, running back to the bike was a nightmare... but you'd still have enough speed to possibly win if you didn't hit anything else. I remember different racers would insult you at the end if you won or not like Lucky Luc and Belladonna. The ending was some rival racer insulting you too... This game was suppose to get a reboot on PS3/360, with Skid Row doing most the soundtrack, but it got cancelled for some reason.. too bad. The PS1 games were ok, but didn't hold the same magic. They had paid for sound tracks by Johnny Cash, Soundgarden, and even Kid Rock before he got big.

    After looking at that pizza again its pretty nasty. lol. Sliced pork, shrimp and raw pineapple looks like a horrible combo. My favorite pizza with pineapple on it isn't sold in NY state. I'd have to go back to Ohio or some other state to get to a Donatos so I could order a "Hawaiian Pizza". Their hawaiian pizza has shaved ham, pineapple, almonds and cinnamon. It sounds horrible, but my god it is delicious. This is the best pic I can find of it online: Hmm. I never realized its a fruit. lol. I like getting cans of black olives to put in salads, but I don't care for green olives at all. But in the grocery store the cans of olives aren't located with the other canned fruit, but tomatoes are sold right along with apples and bananas. Ewww.. Peanut butter with sliced banana is the superior sandwich. (at least when I was a kid.)

    I tend to get myself a Stuff Crust Buffalo Wing & Pineapple Pizza from Pizza Hut. I would be willing to try Banana Pizza. "Tomato is a fruit."

    Looks pretty gross. Plantains would work better, but I wouldn't even like that. I'm more of a all meat toppings type of guy. I'll do exotic cheeses, but no fruit on my pizza.

    There will be 8 more... maybe more you never know. But it will all be season 2. This seems to be a new trend in television making. TWD and Into the Badlands first seasons were very short. I want to say Falling Skies was the same. New shows are expensive to make with the anticipation that there is money to be made off its success. But over the past few years so many shows have tanked hard after 1 season, these studios were just eating massive losses. I guess everyone is being a bit more conservative with things that aren't cop and doctor shows. It's still ok to lose money on those, but new fresh ideas? Nah 4-6 eps to test the waters.

    Funi put up the first 2 episodes of this and now I'm irritated that they've only got 2 eps up. Most likely to sell DVDs because they did the same thing with Outlaw Star recently. I like what I saw. They got all the original dub cast back. The traditional style of animation along with modern lighting and shading techniques really look good on the series.

    I finished season 2 and it was pretty depressing. It was good to see an old face, but man they really made it hard by doing that. I stuck with him until the end and chose to listen to him. I'm surprised how it was 50/50 on the final fight for most people... especially with the Lee flashback right before it.

    Well it did start airing over 12 years ago so I suppose that is old now. I've only seen the first 5 or so episodes of HIMYM. I should bing watch it some day. That got me thinking of old classic sitcoms. I loved Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond and Malcom in the Middle back in the day.

    So because I was bored and I'm getting kinda burned out on FFXIV (yea, week off to play it probably wasn't the best idea) I decided to play some BF1 last night. Have to say I really like a lot of the new changes they put forth since the last time I played (which was shortly after ribbons were introduced). The best feature by far is the new battlepack reward system and I won't go into specifics since I'm sure most of you have seen videos on it. Suffice to say after one match last night I almost had a battlepack (did get one after my second and almost halfway to another one). Nice to see they implemented a system that rewards team play as well as high placement on the scoreboard (about fucking time) for getting battlepacks instead of the RNG based system they had. Also have to say Frontlines is fucking amazing. IMO it's what Operations should of been instead of the crap they gave us. Being a mix of Conquest and Rush (at the end if you get that far) it's pretty fucking fun and the battles get extremely intense at flag points. If Frontlines would of been introduced from the get go I'd of probably continued playing this (hell I most likely will start playing more now, it was kind refreshing to play an FPS again (even if it's one that pissed me off when if first came out)).

    If you haven't watched "The Guild" on netflix yet I recommend it just to see Erin Gray's cameo in the last half of the show. One of the main characters is obsessed with her and when he runs into her at a convention his obsession takes full control. The first season of the guild is all crappily made with a web cam, but the second half of the show is packed with celebrities thanks to the convention episodes. TV for years have sucked because of all the endless reality shows that cost hardly anything to produce and thus it leads to maximum profits for the channels. Only recently has TV started to become good again, mostly thanks to the SYFY and CW channels. There have been so few good tv shows that I can list pretty much every good one off the top of my head. Over the past 10 years some of my favorite shows have been: Battlestar Galactica, TWD, Vikings, Badlands, Dark Matter, Killjoys, Z-Nation, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, The 100, Expedition Unknown, Destination Truth, Josh Gates Destination Truth (new episodes, just started this year), Mythbusters, Psych (my favorite comedy for a long time, theres even a movie coming out for it on USA channel later this year), Chuck (the last season sucked, the rest of the show was amazing), Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction, River Monsters (just finished it's last season), Fringe (the last season sucked horribly).. I'm sure I enjoyed some more too, but over half of these shows have only started in the last 3 years. I watched so many old tv shows when I was younger. Buck Rogers was great, Quantum Leap was amazing. But my all time favorites were all the Star Trek series from the original all the way thru Voyager. Star Trek Enterprise was horrible tho but doesn't count as an old series. Some more favorites of mine were Babylon 5, Sliders, Stargate SG-1, The X-Files, Sliders, and Space: Above and Beyond. Heres my really old favorites I watched as a kid: The original BSG: I used to watch Doctor Who all the time back on PBS with my dad. All those years ago I'd even watch the old black and white episodes. That was some of the best sci-fi ever: The Twilight Zone was an amazing series and I'd catch episodes of those whenever I could: Lost in Space is a classic: The Outer Limits was a complete knock off of Twilight Zone, but it had some great episodes too.

    There is some singing involved, but no one breaks out into a full song, it actually fits into the story really well. The basic premise is he's a getaway driver and he was in a wreck when he was little that gave him really bad tinnitis in both ears, so he's always listening to music to drown that out.

    You have to remember that The Last of US was a PS3 game. The PS4 may have made it look a bit nicer, but there is only so much more that could have been done without overhauling with a complete update.
