    https://playoverwatch.com/en-us/news/22010733 Another free weekend is coming up. The state of the game has altered a little since the last. Soldier, McCree, Bastion, and Mei had their damage fall off ranges buffed, making the Phara and Mercy combo non existent (thank god). Phara is a lot weaker now, and so is Mercy as her healing was nerfed back to what it was when the game first came out. This means a lot of the lower DPS characters can't be out healed by a pocket mercy. Ana's ult has been buffed, I've been playing a lot more of her when people are willing to Rein up for me. I've enjoyed it immensely. Her and Brigitte are the best support counters to Doomfist and Wreckingball to stop their mobility. Lucio's aura has been buffed to be bigger and his Ult now can cancel out every Ult except D.Va's on 200HP characters. Brigitte has been nerfed since the last go, her shield bash CD is now 7 seconds from the 5 it was. I personally thought the 6 second buff was enough. She's not as powerful as she originally was, but is still effective on the right maps. Moira is still an absolute monster and my favorite character to play. Her healing mist got buffed to regen 20% faster, so you can throw out more death orbs instead of solely relying on your healing orbs to keep the team up. It doesn't seem like much, but I'd say I went from throwing 30/70% death/heal orbs to 60/40%. With McCree back in the meta, it does hurt her ult as he can easily cancel it out with a stun flank. Brigitte was the main counter but you could easily keep your distance from her stun. D.Va is still the best tank by far, and its not even close. Her rocket barrage that was added before the last free weekend has given her the DPS boost she needs to defend herself against high DPS targets, and harass other tanks. With the mobility nerfs to Widow and Hanzo they've seen a downard thrust in play, but I have no doubt no one will experience that next weekend as all the n00b try hards will instantly go for them and get fucking deleted by anyone decent with Zen, Ana, D.Va, Soldier, and even Lucio. Solider and McCree can also harass snipers off their perches with ease now as well. Junkrat is very meta in mid and lower tiers, as a lot of people try max shield bunker on choke point maps like King's Row and Volskaya. He also does work on Brigitte as her smaller shield can't handle his bombs, your trap can snare her shield bash, and his concussion mind can easily be thrown over her defenses.

    I'm for the spotting changes because I'm a stealth player and I hate how every game has tried their hardest to take away complete map invisibility. I can only imagine how many of my BF deaths came from someone spamming the spot button non stop and picking me up trying to flank around the back of enemy lines.

    I want to be excited for this game, but honestly It completely dropped out of my mind the last few months. The lack of ammo is going to change after launch, and they should just change it now TBH. But they wont. They'll wait until people stop playing like they always do to fix stuff. They don't even have to give everyone a max stack, just maybe 20% more. I get why they want it to be like it is, but its too extreme. Only 3 mags with a SMG? Thats 3-4 kills before you're out. Scout can stay the same becasue 15 rounds is no less than 10 kills for a good player. I'm curious if you can resupply yourself because that's what is going to happen.. everyone is going to be playing support and no one will play medic or assault. Tanks will run wild because of it. They fix the sniper problem and create a whole new one. I just read preorders are really weak right now. At least I won't be paying $100 for a game that will have a low player count 6 months after launch. It doesn't help they were assholes about the first trailer. Causing PR nightmares before you game launches isn't the best approach.

    This is the first time I bought one of these at launch. I was a bit disgruntled after only being able to play Ep 1 as I'm use to all the eps being available. The first ep was good. A lot of character building. Having AJ with me and watching def made me think more about my choices in dialog. I tried to be more fair and reasonable. This first ep was more about relationship development with the new cast. There was a lot of choices to be made, but I don't think any would have been super impactful for the overall arc. The end was pretty brutal though. And AJ is a little shit, I kinda wish he died in the last season . #TeamKenny

    I bet it'll be a 3 hour movie and the first 2 hours will be character buildup of the new boxer character and his struggles with raising a child while trying to work a job and have a boxing career. Slowly they'll bring in some other human mortal kombat characters and in the final hour explain some elaborate tournament and introduce 18 more characters a ninja army and a bunch of aliens in a train wreck of a final hour.. but the best scene will be in the last fight when the boxer has a flash back to him telling his kid something while he throws that perfect finishing punch that saves all of earth. There... now I can skip this movie.

    I don't drink much soda anymore unless I'm at the theater or some other public event. But every time I see something new I gotta try it. My grocery store got some new specialty sodas in this week. Some haven't come in yet that I sill want to try. I've already had Cheerwine before which is basically a Dr. Pepper variation clone. They had some Faygo with real sugar, and a Shirley Temple soda that was liquid diabetes. But there was one called Moxie and it was pretty fucking nasty. It didn't say what it was, so I assumed it was just some type of cola... which it was with a vile aftertaste that can only be described as bitter grapefruit extract with a pinch of dirt. Apparently its an old soft drink made in the late 1800's and it should have stayed there because its nasty AF.

    Recovery of an MMO Junkie (and yes the original title is literally the translation, that's what its called in Japan) is a pure gem, I watched it as it aired and instantly fell in love with it. Probably my favorite show for that season (I still haven't watched Ancient Magus's Bride or Black Clover yet (which started during that season)). It's was nice to finally have an MMO related anime title that didin't deal with being stuck in a game and focused more on the players and what went in their actual lives. Not only that Morioka is such an adorable character it's hard not to love her (plus I admire her commitment to quiting her job just to play video games, something I wish I could do (damn debt and not ever having any money >.<)). I'm with DX, definitely worth a watch if you're looking for a lighthearted show with good comedy and a good story.

    Hooray for plot changes! I stand by my original assessment, this movie will be horrible (especially now since they're not even following the manga plot, at least the OVA did).

    Recommendation of the Wonderful Virtual Life/Recovery of an MMO Junkie Clearly this title was just renamed, I guess for length purpose as the first is what it translates too, and the later is what the English title for the show is. The show is about the main character Moriko Morioka living the recluse life, quitting her corporate job just to play an MMO all day. She plays as male character and eventually befriends a female character who is a male, Yuta Sakurai, that has a respectable job. The show is full of impossible coincidences as Sakurai and Morioka were unknowingly good friends in a different MMO back when she was working and he was graduating college. By chance they run into each other on a side walk literally and the story takes off. Also insert Sakurai's friend Homare Koiwai who just so happened to have worked with Morioka at her previous job. This show is precious. I really loved it. For once its nice to have an anime about adults, especially in this genre. It also doesn't stick to the cliche antics romantic comedies normally have, and its completely void of fan service. Morioka, Sakurai, and Koiwai are such great characters with great chemistry. The story actually spends more time outside of the game than in, which is nice. Morioka and Sakurai are both socially awkward and shy. Koiwai is outgoing and is always trying to help Sakurai even if its in a teasing way. It provides plenty of laughs, and fun moments. I recommend this to anyone looking for a lighthearted watch.

    I'll be on Episode 10 tomorrow. I've never cried so hard of laughter from any anime than Fumoffu. The Karate Club faceoff is my favorite scene of all time. This season, Tessa saying "You're a piece of shit so fuck you, and go to hell" was outstanding. I don't know how that line went on the sub, but thats how it was translated on the dub. I do like how Invisible Victory legitimized Fumoffu by having the Student Council President make an appearance. Hopefully that Funi/Crunchy money will speak to Nakayama and Xebec. Even if they get a different director, I think Xebec has proven they can handle the animation... just don't do any more car chases. I can't say I've seen anyone else animate being shot so viscerally. Its not easy to be a different studio and preserve character design integrity, especially after so many years... you can end up with a DBGT Vegeta. Tessa, Chidori, Sousuke, Kurz, Mao, Kalinin, and Mardukas all looked spot on.

    God damn what a ride is all I have to say. Definitely my favorite season of the four we currently have (Fumoffu taking second). I love the dark tone this season set and all the major developments we got in such a short amount of time (especially for a 12 episode season, though those fucking recap episodes and that 2 week wait between episodes 10 and 11 sucked balls), plus god damn do I love the *will not say till others have seen it*. Such a beautiful piece of *again will not say till others have seen*. I have to say I really hope this gets green lit for another season but I don't think that will be for awhile. If I remember correctly the novel isn't much further past how this season ends (which I'd love to talk about but I don't want to ruin it for you all) so it might be a waiting game again (I'll have to check, my friend reads the light novel so he'll be able to tell me).

    Well, All, Sabe has returned! ...Again. I think my last set of posts took place back in 2013 or so, and there has been a LOT that has changed; it amazes me that it has, though, since I always thought of my life as so unchanging. Back in '13 I was working at the Arena doing Security work...it wasn't exactly what you'd call fulfilling, but it paid the bills and kept me busy. Well, it was just a year after that, when things changed, and they changed fast. To make a lot of superfluous details and exposition short, I fell in love. She was a part of the EVS (a glorified acronym for Janitorial Staff) Department and was just a face in the crowd; then we began to talk when we both had time. After that, it was pretty fast...we'd make excuses to run into each other during working hours; then there was the exchange of phone numbers; after that, it was a whirlwind courtship. We did a few things out of order, though. After things began to really heat up, we both left the Arena for differing reasons, on paper at least (more pay and less politics was the main idea for both of us, really), and started other employment for almost another year. I went to FedEx, she to an insurance company, where we could both earn what we were going to need for the coming future...she was pregnant! On August 10, 2015 our daughter was born; a bit preemie, and stubborn about eating, but whole and healthy otherwise. "Peanut" has been a challenge now and again (good Lord is there a lot of me in her!), but it has been worth it...I couldn't imagine life without her! We apartment bounced twice in the months and years following "Peanut"'s arrival, until we found one that would fit all of us when The Boss had all her kiddo's around. I can sense the confusion...didn't I mention? The Boss had prior kids before we got together...3 other girls, as a matter of fact! We get along like a house afire, though...love them just as much as I do "Peanut". Well, the second apartment worked for almost two years, during which time (June 24, 2017) the boss and I got married! Things improved again! Then, about 6 months after that, I got into a spat with the landlord, and we had to figure out a new living arrangement rather quickly...Me and my damn temper; even though I followed the laws for the City and State, it was deemed I didn't have enough evidence to charge my landlord with negligent maintenance. Thanks to my time in the service, though, I had access to my VA stuff, and less than three months later and 150 miles or so west, I became a homeowner! A small town of 2,000 or so, a good vibe and lots of space for things to keep improving! The house is a two story with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spare room that I turned into a mini man-cave and sits on 3 city lots: total space (Land and house) is .44 acres! The house will need some TLC over the years, but I can say we are more than happy. Soon, the wife wants to open an in-home Daycare, and I would like to start woodworking again, in addition to my off and on writing. I hope any Clan who takes the time to read this has had good luck, joy and many blessings in their own lives since my hiatus, and that they all keep coming for you! In the words of Tigger: TTFN! Ta, Ta For Now!
