  1. That is alot of optimism and speculation. I hope they announce new elite specs. But if they did that they'd have to add alot of extra hero points somewhere in the game.
  2. I finished reading LoTR The Two Towers a couple weeks ago after taking a long long break on reading it. It felt like Frodo and Sam were walking forever to Mordor. That part was so long and boring. -_-; I'm glad its over with. When they finally got attacked by the spider I was thankful something was actually happening. Now I'm reading Return of the King and my god this is moving at such a better pace. The attack on Gondor is happening now. After I'm done with this book I'm going to re-watch the entire movie trilogy again.

      Lol. I've watched all the LoTR and Hobbit movies multiple, multiple times. XD Mostly because of them being on movie channels on TV when there is nothing else on, I'll put on one these while going to sleep. XD Although, I will never watch the last movie all the way through anymore. All those ending scenes are too much for me. XD 

      The Helm's Deep battle was definitely better in the book. I have high hopes for the battle of Gondor, so far its awesome. :D

  4. I'm glad you liked it. I'll read the manga so no spoilers on it please. lol. I'll get to it eventually.
  5. I doubt I'll use Epic much, I figured I'd get the free games added to the account for now. I hardly play anything on Steam anymore, but I have gotten into the habit of launching it every day again to stream Guild Wars 2 from my pc to my laptop so I can grind it at max settings while watching a movie in my living room. Epic's game store seems very lackluster. Its so basic and its no where near steam's quality right now. Epic must be paying ass loads of money to these developers for exclusivity or timed exclusives. If they have that much money to spend, they really need to upgrade their store and launching program. I honestly didn't notice the shopping cart until you mentioned it.. I thought it was odd I couldn't claim both of those free games at the same time.. turns out theres no shopping cart for this online store.. wtf. Humble bundle's online store is a better experience.
  6. Looks like Epic Games Store will be here for the long haul with all those exclusive game deals, Fortnite still being popular and the free games they keep giving away. So I made an account. Feel free to add me to your friends list if you have an Epic account. Username: Sledgstone As of right now Epic is giving away 1 or 2 games free every week and you just have to add them to your account, like PS+ games on PSN. https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/collection/free-games-collection For Honor and Alan Wake are free for this week.
  7. I got my Skyscale mount last night and took a video of the achievement.
  8. Yeah, I just want video game news with some research done with decent production quality. YongYea and Jim Sterling are the only youtubers that I actually trust for actual news. I may not agree with some of their more opinionated segments if they don't conicide with my own, but its nice to hear someone else's view on a subject to take into consideration.. overall they make good quality news videos. The Quartering now comes across as an entitled white man that is complaining about his privileges being stripped away from popular media. I don't follow him on twitter, but he reminds me a bit of Trump in terms of how he portrays his opinions as in Negative attention = attention. As long as you have attention (of any kind, especially negative attention that gets more views), headlines and click bait, he'll always have a following. I don't know if he has a patreon like YongYea or Sterling, maybe he doesn't and thats why he needs to throw out so many endless opinion videos so he can keep racking up views for youtube cash. In terms of youtube as a whole. I don't trust any video that is building up hype for a game because all those youtubers are being paid for the hype. I stopped pre-ordering games years ago and this video really emphasizes it. Its a shame this video has so few views. I watched it earlier this year and forgot to share it. After watching this, and then going back through videos of popular game channels like Westie, Jackfrags, etc. You can see the hype videos leading up to the release of the game. Nothing but good things are said.. because they can only say good things to use the footage and access they were given. After whatever game came out, whether it be BF1 or BFV for example you can see where critisism videos start up because then they are allowed to post whatever videos they want because the game was released. I can guarantee the same bribery happened with Mass Effect Andromeda, Anthem, Destiny, etc. and all their respective youtubers that focus on those games.
  9. And now my skyscale collection needs jumping puzzles. I knew it was coming but still... x_x

      The jumping puzzles are done. I ended up crafting 5 of those pungent foods to skip a few. lol. I made the saddle last night. All I have left is to do those 28 rifts.. This collection was beyond massive. What I don't get is Anet said they didn't want to do anymore legendary collections because they spanned multiple maps and could break.. yet heres the skyscale collection that is so big and spans so many maps its crazy to me. If they could do this they could have done more legendary collections. oh well. Its been a fun although extremely time consuming experience. But I'm definitely feeling more bonded with this mount than the others because of all the work put into getting it. And to top it off, anet really wants to sell skins for it.. one dye channel for the entire default mount skin? wtf. But I bet the skin sales for this mount will be far less than the others. I can only imagine the amount of people that got burned out on this collection and won't finish it. And if a large chunk of players don't finish it, then theres less incentive for anet to make more skins for it.

      The problem with the legendary collections was they were lazy and just put a bunch of random crap to do, including alternate events that required a fail from other certain events... that didn't fail very often in the first place like the Arah defense. It only took them months if not longer to make the Arah defense also count... butt hurt people that will never get a leggy just sat around defending arah all day on purpose until they fixed it. I got Luckly with Astralaria... the stars aligned when 3 people were AFKing for the Melandru defense for whatever leggy they were working on and it failed for me to get the event I needed... so not only did some require failed events, but some required competing events. That's not even going into the multiple busted events there are. They can do all the big collections they want so long as they completely leave dynamic events out of it. JPs, Vistas, World Bosses, hidden chests, mini dungeons, etc. There is so much they can use that don't bug, but they always want you to do their mundane dynamic events that aren't worth doing after the first time you experience them. The Skyscale was done relatively right and some of the multiple map stuff was things they made for the skyscale like the rifts. That's where the real problem is. creating new content for a whole set of weapons. People got burned out because of the time gate more than the actually work you needed to put into it. Which was also stupid of them to do. Casuals timegate themselves, so running into a timegate off your own terms is a put off, especially if someone has as limited time as you have. Even without a timegate, burning through the collection would have still taken many many hours. It was just completely nonsensical. timegates make people log off, not play, and therefore not buy gemstore stuff.

      For me it wasn't just the time gate.. it was the saddle collection. I'm glad I started late on the collection. I only had that 2 hour delay instead of a full reset. But the biggest hurdle was that damn saddle. If I didn't buy all those jorbreakers and trade them in weekly for those multiple batches of 50 season 4 currency every week during the dragon bash festival I would have given up. Theres no way in hell I would have had the patience to farm 250 of each currency from each map. It would have taken me a year at my pace. I spent just over 100 gold on jorbreakers, but I'd have rather done that than farm all that currency. I still didn't have enough for a couple of them and kept buying the currency from the dragonfall vendor for the limit of 5 per day until I hit my numbers. Thankfully that world boss event rewarded even more of the currency. With that I was able to get all 250 I needed for all of them.. I'm just glad I had the time to participate in those events and knew that saddle collection cost before being surprised with it after those events ended.

      I got my Skyscale last night. :D Now I can actually check out the festival.

      One thing I noticed is the skyscale collection as well as the Sun's Refuge collections are similar in that they place markers on the map if the collection is activated. I'm guessing this new collection interface is far superior to the old ones they made for the legendary weapons. The legendary weapons collections all had map specific things, like nevermore had ravens in different maps, no markers at all, and even if you weren't doing the collection, those ravens were now permanently there and part of the map now for everyone to see and interact with. But the Sun's refuge and Skyscale are account specific based on if the collection is activated or not and only show on the map for the player that has the collection active. I'm guessing this makes those collections easier to manage and not break like the old leggy weapons versions. The only part of the skyscale collection that seems to be permanently part of the maps is the rifts. But those seem like they're in place now like updrafts and aren't tied to any events so I doubt they'll ever break.

  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. This movie is going to be fucking amazing.
  13. I saw the blu ray box set for sale a couple weeks ago and thought.. "when the f*ck did that air?" and now season 3 is already getting a trailer. Damn I'm behind.
  14. I still haven't watched westworld season 2.
  15. Ok I'm impressed. I did not think cbs would do something right with Picard, but I'm sold on it. 😁 holy crap.. it's like a direct sequel to TNG. 😁
  16. I checked error logs but I couldn't find anything. So I changed a couple settings for the gallery and did a couple test uploads. One image loaded fine, the other upload was 3 images at once. Everything worked ok. One of the issues might have been a file size limitation. Anything around 4mb might have been timing out. I increased the upload size for all usergroups. If anyone wants to test some image uploads, go for it. :D 10 mb is now the largest image the forum will take at the moment. All of my test images were no bigger than 1.5 mb. We still might get an image upload timing out for large images but that might be a hard server setting I'd have to look for.

      I'll try fucking with the image size because I'm still getting the 504 Gateway Timeout error every time I try to upload a screenshot of my character (which might be the problem since it is 1920 x 1080).

      I also have no comment on the absurdity that has proceeded this comment (I really should check the show out but its just to weird, even for me).

  20. I need to renew my license for the forum software to upgrade and fix the issue. Its only $60, but my money is tight as hell right now. x_x
  21. This skyscale collection for GW2 is crazy huge. This is easily a larger collection than what was required for the Nevermore precursor. If it required a massive gold investment, this mount would basically be legendary status imo. wtf.

      XD but it's almost completely free if you dont take any short cuts. While it sucks, for what you get it's worth it. World Completion is now a minor inconvenience rather than a large undertaking with this mount.

  22. I'm wondering if Nintendo will now phase out the gameboy or if they'll start competing with themselves in their own hand held market.
  23. Noo... the pic upload must have failed. I don't see anything.
