  1. My parents visited me over the weekend. Had a great time. :D I wish I lived in the same state as the rest of my family so I could see them all more often.

  2. RIP Tom Petty, you had some great hits.

  3. David's dad's part was ridiculous. But what was more ridiculous was the ending. lol. It was a fun movie tho.
  4. So much action. I'm glad Will Smith isn't in this movie.. his last couple movies really were't that good and if it was once again a Will Smith / Jaden Smith movie it would have sucked. *looking at you After Earth*
  5. Congrats on your purchase! Did you preorder it from gamestop? Or was it just sitting on a shelf waiting for you?
  6. Lol! That's how it was for me initially. But he nailed the role. Whenever i see him I think of Frank Castle now instead of Shane. I recommend watching part of daredevil season 2 before watching the punisher series tho. The first couple episodes of season 2, then skip all the court room / daredevil crap and then watch the last 3 episodes.
  7. It looks promising and a couple of the scenes look like they were taken right out of the game. Alicia Vikander looks like Lara Croft in that outfit, but shes a very small woman (height and muscle) in comparison to Lara Croft in the video game. I hope her physical performance is believable considering how many men she'll have to kill. To hell with the double guns tho. I'd rather see her using only the bow and climbing axe the entire movie.. and maybe an assault rifle. lol.
  8. I just got my skimmer last night before I went to bed. I'm loving this campaign so far. The plot is significantly better than Heart of Thorns. I finally got to hear Rytlock's story about what happened in the mists. Thanks alot Rytlock. I'm glad all players get to see the re-enactment of how Kormir takes god powers all on her own without asking anyone else if they want to take the burden. lol. She power grabbed so fast that she sprinted right to her goal. I can still basically hear the hero "Wait Kormir!.... I deserve this, not you!"
  9. My mattress has been killing my back and sides for over a year now. I kept adjusting how I was sleeping, got a mattress pad, etc. Screw this thing. I bought a mattress in a box from walmart.com for cheap. $140. I thought about getting a memory foam one but I read that they trap heat too easily so I went with a Slumber 1 brand coil spring.

    Sure as hell this mattress showed up in a box. It was vacummed sealed in a bag, folded and rolled up. When I broke that plastic seal it inflated so damn fast that it made a whistling noise thru the plastic bag as I was cutting it open. lol. It feels pretty comfortable so far but I have to let it air out for "full recovery" for 48 hours. I'd have rather gotten an expensive really nice beauty rest mattress or something else from a mattress store, but I'm tight on funds. This seems decent enough for now.

      I've been sleeping on the same Sealy Posturepedic mattress for almost 20 years now. XD Its actually the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on for me. Anytime I'm in a hotel or another bed, its just not as good. Looking at the prices now they are $1000-1500 X_x I think I'll be keeping mine for as long as it lasts.

      I hear that. Really good mattresses are super expensive. x_x A lot of mattress commercials make sense tho. We do spend about 1/3 or 1/4 of our entire lives laying on one, might as well make it a good one.

      Fuck my old mattress was fucking amazing, sadly it went to hell in about 5 years (I spend a lot of time in my room since it's where everything of mine is located so you can about imagine how much time I spend on my bed (between gaming, watching anime/movies, reading, and up until recently playing games on the laptop)). Only mattress I was able to sleep soundly on (and it was only $500 or so) but I had to get rid of it two years ago because it was really starting to kill my back. My current one isn't bad (I went a little firmer than my old one, still comfy and still a pillow top but it's not the same) but I'd kill to get another mattress like my old one (don't remember what brand it was and we don't have similar mattress places like the one in Arizona where I bought it).

      I'd really love one of those Sealy mattresses but fuck are they expensive. One of these days I'll have one

  10. The trailer for the campaign. Looks alot better than all the futuristic stuff CoD has been doing lately.
  11. Me and a buddy made some bulk sausage last night. It was a fun experience using a meat grinder for the first time. I have enough sausage in my freezer for almost a year now. Only cost about $20 for this amount. My friend bought way more pork butts than me and we made sausage for hours. Lol.

  13. I finished LoTR: The Fellowship of the Ring yesterday. Great novel, but if I ever read it again I'll skip the first 150 pages of hobbit only adventures. lol. After that chunk the book turned out to be great. And the fan theory about Gandalf telling them "fly you fools" as in get to the eagles is debunked to me. Theory:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/lord-of-the-rings-cast-major-fan-theory_us_561dca5fe4b028dd7ea5b392

    In the novel the word 'fly' was used as the word run in multiple instances. It was just the writing style. I'm glad they kept that scene like that in the movie, but Gandalf had no secret meaning when he said that. He was simply telling them to run for their f*cking lives or they'd all die in Moria.

      All I have to say is Tom, you know what I mean (it's the only part of Fellowship I actually enjoyed outside of Moria, I really wish they would of put him in the movie). Everything else before the Council meeting could pretty much be left out (I could care less about how many meals a Hobbit has in a day or how a proper Hobbit should live). Don't get me wrong I love Tolkien's work and I love how he crafted an entire world in just 3 books (technically LotR is one book just split in three) but seriously I don't need all this set-up just for it not to mean a damn thing in the next two novels (as much as I love the Ents they're probably the only real downside to The Two Towers (though they do redeem themselves).

      I honestly can't believe people actually thought that. "Fly" has more than one meaning, get a fucking dictionary people. The context it's said in is a dead giveaway as to what he meant because how the fuck do you fly out of a mine (with a Balrog on your ass at that). As much as Tolkien is great at alluding to certain things in his books there is no denying he meant "run for your fucking lives" and not "fly on the backs of eagles". Nerds will never cease to amaze me (yes I say that knowing full well I am one).

      I thought Tom was the most unbelievable character. Lol. He was definitely interesting but singing all the time was a bit creepy to me considering. Especially since he is so powerful he can simply basically order anyone or anything to do something by singing it. He sang a song to the hobbits and told them to go strip down and play in the river. Next thing you know we got naked hobbits frolicking around for a couple paragraphs. XD

  14. http://kotaku.com/destiny-2-players-fume-over-one-time-use-shaders-and-m-1801803456 Shaders are consumables!? Nooooooo! Raid only dye colors.. I hardly ever changed my shaders in D1, so I doubt I'd care much in D2, but it seems a bit dumb to change the standard shader system into a consumable version instead just to give everyone something new to grind for. I like the hashtag this guy uses. #MakeFashionGreatAgain
  15. I'll play evil as long as I can be a gentlemen to the ladies.
  16. I was listening to some music on my PC while I was working earlier today and after a while I shut the stream off. About 20 mins later my speakers abruptly starting making loud low noises like a test pattern. I shook the speaker a bit and it stopped and I turned the power off on them. I kept working and another 5 mins later I smelled burning plastic.. and then smoke coming from my speaker.. wtf. It only stopped burning after I unplugged it from the wall. I don't know if the speaker caught fire because of a component in it, or if the ac adapter kept failed and kept pumping electricity into it. I'm glad I was there when it happened or it could have caused a serious fire incident. Now I'm paranoid about my other electronics catching fire on me. x_x

  17. Thanks for all the info on the game. Its good to read up on what I'm missing out on. I still don't think I'll be rushing out to buy this any time soon, but its good to know that Bungie is moving forward with improvements. Although I'm surprised they had those max server issues on day one. How many hours did it take you to beat the campaign? Now that you've had the game for 2 days, you're already at the end game content. How is it so far? Are you feeling compelled to keep logging in daily to get more loot? Or is the loot so plentiful now you'll get best in slot for everything within a matter of a few weeks and run out of things to do? Did you get through a bunch of your steam backlog now that you have a PC that can play everything?
  18. Lmao! That game looks beyond bizarre.. I'll pass on that one. I never did buy Infamous Second Son. I'll download that and play it after I finish Uncharted 4.
  19. Season 2 ups the ante with the pointless sex scenes and nudity. The political drama is the biggest highlight of the series and definitely makes it worth watching. It got to the point in season 2 that I actually fast forwarded thru 3 different sex scenes just to get to more plot. There's some other scenes that I remember lasting 5-10 mins or so that i did watch because there was talking involved but they added absolutely nothing to the plot so after that I just kept skipping them. It's a good series but it could have been great if the first 2 seasons were filmed like season 3+. The excessive nudity but not excessive sex in Westworld actually makes sense tho because of the nature of the theme park. But in game of thrones it feels like they threw the nudity in there like they were trying to be edgy or justify their 'premium' cable price. Ever since regular cable has had most of the restrictions of profanity, gore and violence removed over the years HBO keeps turning to more nudity and sex like its supposed to add something special to a product when all it does is detract from the plot and draw criticism from fans. If TWD was made by HBO we'd have had countless sex scenes and almost every female walker would have been topless for no reason.
  20. The first 2 seasons are slow and have so much pointless softcore porn nudity. Once you get into season 3 and beyond there are many episodes that have movie quality fight scenes and sets that make TWD look like its has a b movie budget. I finished up the last season this past season and it felt incredibly rushed since its coming to an end. The next season which is going to be 6 episodes or so I think is going to be the finale. If the show feels like it drags on at times its because it does. HBO kept waiting for the author of the books to make the last 2 books in the series and he kept saying he was almost done with one of them. But after 5 years of waiting on him HBO caught up to the books and actually had a sit down with him to get a rough outline of his upcoming books so they can finish the series as best they can. Which results in this last season feeling rushed as all hell and the finale will probably be 6 episodes of endless action to conclude the series. Once you finish this I highly recommend Westworld. Its a better series and its only 1 season. Highly impressive.
  21. I missed that video. lol. Looks like activision doesn't want too much getting leaked out.
  22. Battlefield 1 premium is on sale for $29.99 for pc but it's still full price for console players. No thanks EA. I'll just hold onto my money then. 😬

      Probably won go on sale until after Battlefront II comes out. I think the console player base is still really strong, plus the have the play with a friend system where you can play all the DLC as long as someone in your squad has it. The PC base always fizzles faster.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Usually how it goes as the PC base is pretty non-existent right now (they suffer more from this paywall then us console players do as console players are more apt to buying the Season Pass then PC players (you know since the PC master race thinks they should get everything for free (I in no way believe we shouldn't but they never fully adopted the season pass mentality that we have)). It'll see a resurgence in a week or two when In the Name of the Tsar goes live next month (which I'm kinda looking forward too, some of the maps look fun). The only downside to playing with a friend is you don't get any unlocks or xp for playing DLC maps (the only downside to the system), you just get to experience the map and not the weapons (unless you get lucky to pick one up from a dead enemy).

  23. I'm going to try to be optimistic and assume anet will balance spellbreaker a bit to increase it's dps. It's not optimal in pve because the daggers do to little damage. But I think anet balanced them to be that way because of their might generation. When I was testing it in the pvp lobby I was able to consistently get 25 stacks of might within 4-5 seconds. While that is good and it increases dps the low damage of the daggers is only more emphasised when I swap over to greatsword and accomplish far more damage. And that might generation isn't that impressive either considering a normal berserker with greatsword can generate that much might themselves in an additional 1-2 more seconds. But it's not just the dagger dps that disappointed me it's also the traits. It really feels lackluster in synergy compared to other elite specs like dragon hunter, reaper and scourge. I still think warrior needs a complete rework of their traits or they'll never be anything more than a might generator with phalanx strength and banners. Spellbreaker will be amazing in wvw though because of the elite skill but that's only because anet never properly balanced wvw to begin with.
  24. At least I won't have to wait for a game of the year addition to go on sale. I think YouTube is the real driving force behind all day one sales for video games. There are so many YouTubers and twitch streamers now that the rush to get their own content out asap results in everyone buying the game at the same time and then unanimously complaining about it all while generating hype about the game. And then 2 months later all the hype is gone and the game goes on sale for $20 off to get the stragglers that don't want to pay full price.
  25. Looks good. It does have me wondering who Jack the ripper is. It can't just be Jack the ripper at this point with all the other characters in the movie. It might be lock up but I'm leaning more towards Riddler because of that note.
