  1. So much legal paperwork with house crap. Its been taking up all my free time for the last month. One more month to go and it should be all done. x_x

  2. 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.
  3. I cancelled my amazon prime membership. I wasn't getting nearly enough benefit out of it to justify the $120 price per year. Sure its got alot of benefits but its become like a cable package, everything all bundled together. I don't need 70% of what amazon prime even gives anymore. All I wanted was the free two day shipping. Amazon Prime video sucks ass compared to netflix since every app I used for it forces me to go and set a filter for prime only movies and the search always gave me results not included for free in prime. It felt like a constant advertisement and I stopped using it almost a year ago. eh.

      I'll keep mine around. I order way too much from amazon to give up my shipping. I order 2-5 times a month. I order bulk items like snacks and coffee. I get a 48pk of Quaker chewy bars for $11, and sometimes $8 with a coupon. A 8pk at the store is almost $4. If I order it on Sunday I can expect to get it on Wednesday every time. I just have to make sure I order anything I want before Thursday to get it in two days.

  4. A new chapter of Fairy Tail came out one year after the manga ended. It picks up right after the end of the series. Even tho the last couple arcs were written horribly I'm glad the series is back and can get a bit of a fresh start now that so many long term plot lines have all been resolved. The original mangaka is writing the plot lines and story boards but a different artist is actually making the manga. The art style is similar so far but its noticeable on some pages. If anything we might be getting less fan service with this guy. Lol.

      I haven't read Edens Zero but I just looked at the first chapter and skimmed through it and it looks like an alternate reality Fairy Tail except instead of mages, theres humans versus robots.. and space travel.. wtf. XD I guess I'll read this. But yeah those characters are exactly like you said.. The main character is Natsu but with Grey's hair and Lucy looks the exact same except her name is Rebecca.. and theres a cat.. also named Happy. XD

      And of course I saw one page where the girl starts crying and the guy gets a nakama power up.. "I'll fight for those tears" *instant owns everyone* -_-; yeah, this is the same guy that wrote fairy tail.  XD

  5. That movie looks awesome tho. the trailer alone is better than the justice league movie.
  6. Either I'm getting used to the giant eyes or they toned them down a bit. They don't look nearly as huge as the first promo clip. This is looking like a solid movie now.
  7. Part 2 came out a few days ago on Netflix. It was good and filled with alot of action. Imagine godzilla versus gundams. Lol. There's definitely going to be a part 3.
  8. Comcast dropped it's bid for the Fox properties. Looks like Disney will get all their comic character licenses back at this rate. https://io9.gizmodo.com/comcast-drops-its-bid-to-buy-fox-meaning-theres-nothin-1827713684
  9. That bbq and the work they put into it is inspiring. I'd love to eat their food. That whole hog style is something I will never attempt to cook myself mostly because of the space it needs and the cost of the meat. Damn good bbq can be done in a small amount of time depending on the cut tho. Ribs can be smoked to perfection in 3 hours and smaller cuts in similar time but for big cuts like whole hog that takes forever. I've watched alot of competition bbq shows and YouTube videos on bbq to get recipes and techniques but any cook that takes me over 8 hours I'll either use a smaller cut of meat or cook at a higher temp. The kind of bbq these ppl cook is what I'd pay top dollar for because the skill required to cook it right is impressive.
  10. The snow looks way too distracting for me. Without traditional 3D spotting, we'll have to look for movement to see enemies and that snow is way too much of a visual distraction. I'm glad planes will be basically useless without the spotting. Screw the damn planes. They do need to change the shoulder mounted rockets to be a one hit kill for planes and any helicopters there might be. Its ridiculous that the AT rocket in BF1 wouldn't one shot them, but to have an actual rocket/RPG equivalent not destroy them in one hit is just stupid. I'm definitely looking forward to this game, but the crazy low ammo on spawn seems a bit too much. Only 2 clips for an assault on spawn? wtf. I'd waste half those bullets shooting at the first guy I see, then run out of ammo trying to kill the second guy. I don't want to play a game where 70% of the time I'm using a pistol and another 20% of the time I'm in a bleedout screen hoping to get revived with the new revive mechanic. Those 2 things are my biggest concern. The 3D spotting change is massive nerf to planes and snipers and I blame the balance and map design of BF1 for that. Everyone in that game now is a sniper or a plane guy that goes 50-2 every match. I love sniping but its hard to enjoy BF1. That and the vehicles sucked in it. If we can get proper BF4 style vehicle combat again I'll be very pleased. We need tanks that have passenger seats that can actually rotate 360 degrees. I hated being a passenger in tanks in BF1 because of the limited visibility.
  11. I bet the movie will be a bastardization of 3 different series rolled into one and focus almost entirely on some political plot line about pacifisim while the gundam pilot kills people and then cries about the murder he has to commit to achieve peace. And the enemy will be a misguided teen prodigy with weird eyebrows or hair that shows no emotions and has latent psychic powers.
  12. I watched this clip last night. Looks great. I'm a bit concerned of it trying to be too much like Destiny tho with those individual mission difficulty settings. One thing that I do love is being able to swap out to different suits. I hated being stuck as a hunter in destiny because I didn't want to level and gear another alt. The weapons and combat in this look really fun and that map does look pretty expansive.
  13. I'm surprised they're not doing PvP. Almost every game has a multiplayer pvp end game even when it's not needed.. mostly to sell loot boxes and more cosmetics. I'm guessing theres going to be so many weapons they'd rather not try to balance any of it and I don't blame them for that.
  14. My router shat out on me today and screwed me for over an hour as I thought it was my internet. -_-; My power went out and after it came back on my router started freaking out and will only stay connected for 5 seconds at a time and then go down again for 4-5 minutes. I hooked up my old back up router in the meantime. Now I have to call up the support line tomorrow and see if Tenda will honor their warranty. I ordered a TP-Link router off amazon a little while ago for a cheap $59 on sale. It seems decent enough and I've never had any issues with TP-Link before.

      Linksys fa life XD My 4 antenna dual 5ghz/2.4ghz beast was worth every penny. I'm sure my neighbors 3 houses down can pick up a medium quality connection on this thing if it wasn't WPA2 locked. XD

      Lol. I've had a linksys router crap out on me. Ever since then I've had no brand loyalty for routers. :P

      I've had a Belkins and D-Links crap out on me but the only Linksys that died on me got hit by lightning. XD I'll have to give that one a pass. I've never had a TP-Link.

  15. That How it should have ended was hilarious!
  16. I thought that Hampster hero was a joke at first. lmao. Hamtaro is in Overwatch now.
  17. I'm more impressed by the Cinematic trailer than I am by the actual gameplay. Blizzard can surprisingly make Pixar quality movies. The game looks like a fun FPS multiplayer with heroes like a MMOBA game. I hope they do more with this game than just make a competitive shooter. I'd love to see a single player / co-op campaign. With a cinematic trailer like that, the cut scenes would be great. Source: battle.net Click here to view the article
  18. I went golfing over the weekend for the first time in about 3 years and surprised the hell out of myself by actually making par on 2 par 3 holes. I definitely need to work on my long game. I can hit a 3 wood decent enough by my skill with a driver is atrocious.

  19. I saw this over the weekend. It wasn't as good as Rouge One, but it was still enjoyable. The new canon for Han and Chewy is ok, but I definitely prefer how they did the kessel run in the novels compared to how it was done in this movie. I think the biggest hold up for me was seeing someone else besides Harrison Ford playing Solo but Alden Ehrenreich did a good job.
  20. I wouldn't blame anyone for leaving a show after being on it for over 5 years. They should have either paid her substantially more or maybe she wanted out regardless just to spread her wings. Besides TWD the only other show I've seen her in was supernatural in multiple episodes and that was years ago. She's a great actress and I doubt she'd ever be typecast as Maggie for life. The filming schedule for twd must have been pretty restrictive since most of the actors are never in anything else.
  21. Check your county or local town/city website for electronic recycling days and fees. Near me it's like $25 to recycle a CRT monitor or old tube TV. I remember back in the day the garbage company would pick up everything. Now it's a fee for everything.
  22. That's a very good point. I've never paid tax on any digital games. I don't think that'll change because I think the taxes can only be applied to a physical purchase. I could be wrong tho.
  23. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/supreme-court-rules-states-can-require-online-retailers-collect-sales-n873416 In NY we're taxed by just about every website there is, but now the rest of the country can enjoy paying taxes for all their online purchases. No real change for amazon tho since they already charge taxes for almost every state anyway. I'm wondering if this could force ebay to collect taxes on every single individual seller's transactions now.
  24. I'm glad that's working for you now. Be careful with that CRT monitor especially with it ticking. Make sure it stays unplugged. I had some PC speakers that weren't even turned on that starting making a noise and then started emitting smoke. Wtf. Damn things almost caught on fire. I'm glad I was home when it happened. Now I'm paranoid about stuff like that.
