  1. 5-7 hours seems so damn short. Thats like BF1 campaign short. The BF1 campaign missions were great and well made, but I bought that game for the multiplayer. The single player was just a great bonus on the side. But for battlefront 2, I'd rather it be more about the story with multiplayer as a bonus mode like Last of Us and Tomb Raider. Its a shame so many games are turning into the multiplayer loot box setup instead. I blame cell phone games. Before we know it Battlefront 3 will be a F2P game but you can only play 3 matches a day unless you pay $0.99 a day for 5 hours a day and only $9.99 one time fee to remove the in game advertising in between spawns. Kotaku and some other sites have been having the loot box conversations for the last week or so. I agree that that loot box is a shitty way to make money. As far as I'm concerned they should either have paid DLC or loot boxes. If there is going to be loot boxes, then the dlc needs to be free to keep people playing while having loot boxes be the crap on the side people can throw money at. I prefer Guild Wars 2 loot boxes. Even tho I never buy them at least I can buy the contents off the trading post. But in all these other games exclusive account bound skins hidden behind rng is some bullshit. The loot box fiasco of Battlefield 1 was a big part of what turned me off from the game. Its much better now. At least if I save up enough scrap I can buy a specific skin directly when it comes up in the rotation instead of having to gamble.
  2. LMAO! They had transwarp drives back in Star Trek 3 wtf. I completely forgot about that. I like how the later series completely forget about this tech and act like it never happened until voyager. I'm guessing the 2 free borg faction from voyager survived 40 years into the future. lol. Voyager covered all the borg stuff. It was worth rewatching a while back just for all that lore. At the end of Voyager they killed the borg queen, destroyed their entire transwarp conduit hub and set them back in progress a great many years. Without their conduit into the the alpha quadrant it probably took them many many years just to make it back into federation space. The large free borg faction in voyager was from unimatrix zero. I'm guessing the allied borg faction 40 years later was a result of them? http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Unimatrix_Zero_(episode) http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Unimatrix_Zero,_Part_II_(episode) As far as I know the war between the borg and species 8472 never ended. I wonder if its still happening all those years later.
  3. That's all kinds of interesting to me. I love how that video really showed the difference. It's crazy to think how fast warp 9.9 is. The Voyager series covered everything about trans warp, warp 10 and quantum slipstream. I actually watched it recently and remember some of it off hand. Basically going warp 10 equals infinite mass and infinite speed. They actually went to warp 10 in a very odd episode with their delta flyer shuttle. The end result was the pilot Tom Perry kinda had a glimpse into omnipresence. He could see everything everywhere and go anywhere he wanted. He recalled events and places on earth, every place of space between them and earth, and pretty much everything else. The ship sensor logs literally filled all its storage with data. The event was to much for his body to handle and he ended up mutating thru an advanced evolution that somehow turned him into a salamander looking dumb thing oon the end. At first it looked like an evolution thing but it really just fried his DNA imo. Trans warp was Borg tech and they had specifically made trans warp corridors that existed in a different plane of subspace or something like that. They wouldn't do instant travel between the locations but it was pretty damn quick compared to warp 9.9. Voyager used some trans warp conduits and shaved 30+ years off their warp 9.9 average travel to earth. Voyager also developed a slip stream drive and shaved decades off their trip to. Slip stream worked like trans warp but wasn't as fast. It was like they were making a trans warp conduit on the fly. They couldn't stabilize the engine tho and shelved it for star fleet to do research on. In the season finale they showed the Borg trans warp conduit hub. It was a way station connecting all their conduits. I think the massive structure was built into a huge black hole / gravitational mass anomaly thing of some kind. I can't remember what it was but damn it was gigantic compared to the actual conduit hub structure.
  4. PSN is having a sale. I picked up the latest TWD telltale game and BF1 premium is finally on sale for $25. I got that to. I'll be playing some more bf1 over the next couple weeks. Some footage from the newest dlc is looking pretty good.

      I still need to get on and play the new DLC. I got to try out some of the maps prior to its release because of Premium but never did get around to actually playing them now (I'm not looking forward to seeing the unlock requirements for the new guns though I want to get me hands on the Federov, makes medics extremely op now).

      Using spears on horses looks brutal now. lol. I'll be playing a bunch this weekend to try it out.

       

  5. About half a year later I finally watched One Punch Man and loved it. The biggest draw of this series is the secondary characters. Their fights are amazing and easily on par with every other action series out there like dragon ball z, Naruto, bleach, etc. All the hero's are bunched up into categories based on their strength and they are assigned to fight monsters or bad guys appropriate for their levels. There is usually multiple battles going on simultaneously and even tho Saitama aka one punch man can defeat any enemy he can't be everywhere at once. It really lets the other hero's shine. And some hero's are small fry that just help the average person evacuate or stop a burglary. This show really covers alot of ground while having thoughtful and emotional moments. The only odd person out is Saitama because of how powerful he is. He's actually depressed most of the time and even lets himself get beat on for a while just to make a fight last longer. Genos and the other "S Class" level hero's are the equivalent of ultimate powers like sayians from dbz. None of them are powerful enough to destroy planets or anything like that but Saitama might be. It really is an amazing series and i highly recommend it even if Netflix still only has the subtitled version. Just a slight spoiler.. the final ep has a massive battle like its right out of dbz.
  6. http://www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2016/07/08/one-punch-man-starts-airing-on-toonami-next-weekend/#5055b5661756 I'm setting this to DVR. I do not want to miss a single episode.
  7. Yes! I think i have that day already scheduled off. I will marathon it that weekend.
  8. Holy crap I've been sick as hell for the last 4 days. Its a combo strep throat and flu. I've been off an on sick for the last month but this is kicking my ass on a whole new level.

      Sometimes if it's real bad it lets me freely shoot giant snot rockets until I empty out my sinuses. XD

      Yeah the menthol burns like crazy, but damn it works. It reminds me of Listerine, and why I don't use any of that "no burn" stuff Crest and others make... it just doesn't feel like its working unless my gums feel like they are being bathed in acid and fire. XDXD

  9. Nice streak. Was that regular pvp or iron banner?
  10. https://www.polygon.com/2017/10/16/16486304/netflix-anime-original-films We'll have to wait until 2018 for the new anime series.
  11. Idris Elba would have pulled off a perfect green lantern.
  12. Only a couple more weeks.
  13. 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.

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

  15. David's dad's part was ridiculous. But what was more ridiculous was the ending. lol. It was a fun movie tho.
  16. 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*
  17. Congrats on your purchase! Did you preorder it from gamestop? Or was it just sitting on a shelf waiting for you?
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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!"
  21. 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

  22. The trailer for the campaign. Looks alot better than all the futuristic stuff CoD has been doing lately.
  23. 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.
