  1. I was a big fan of Kingdom Hearts and this remaster looks amazing compared to the original game on PS2. I would love to replay this game again on the PS3. Like I said above, I was a big fan of KH.. until KH2 came out. Kingdom Hearts 2 had much better game play compared to KH1, unfortunately, KH2 was actually KH3 because it was a sequel to a gameboy game. Considering the amount of KH games that have come out since KH2 on hand held systems, I can only assume KH3 will actually be Kingdom Hearts 9. Unless KH3 will be a stand alone game that requires no plot knowledge from the previous hand held games, I will have no interest in playing this game. Click here to view the article
  2. 1 year later and I got around to playing Wolfenstein: The Old Blood and beating it. It was a fun game but not nearly as long or plot oriented as The New Order. The nostalgia effect of having the old 8-bit game as Nightmare levels was amazing tho. This was easily a stand alone game because of it's length. I beat it in just under 10 hours and I only accomplished 65% of the game since I didn't collect everything available or do any of the challenges.
  3. I finally got around to finishing Wolfenstein: The New Order last night. The plot was good and the overall experience was great. Well worth the $7 I got the game on sale for during a PSN sale. Dual wielding weapons seemed a bit pointless for most of the game until you get to the last areas and it becomes pretty vital. The officers in the game could call in reinforcements so it was best to kill them first. After you get an upgrade you can detect their communications signals and it encourages you to play a bit of a stealth game to kill them off first and then sweep up the rest of the enemies afterwards. Sneaking around thru some duct work and access passages to throw a knife in the back of some guy's head or use a silenced pistol was pretty damn fun. But the real fun of this game is to go full guns blazing and destroy everything in your path. I died so many times doing that in the second part of the game. lol. Some enemies have some extremely strong metal armor on and take quite a beating. I was a fan of the original Wolfenstein and even though this felt like a completely different game from the original (thats actually a good thing tho. Nobody wants 8-bit fps games now. ), it was very enjoyable. I thought this would be a WW2 game, but aside from the beginning, the game actually takes place in the aftermath of the war in which the Nazi's won. The Nazi weaponary in this timeline heavily borrowed from Nikola Tesla. The Tesla grenade was good, but my favorite weapon the Laserkraftwerk was the best. Throughout the game you keep finding upgrades for it too. I still need to play Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, the stand alone DLC game. Its a prequel that takes place during WW2, so I know there will wont be a laser gun in it for me, but I'm sure I'll find some other favorite weapon.
  4. The power of friendship prevails in Fairy Tail and the bad guy was defeated. -_-; *slow clap* One chapter left for the epilogue. This guy hasn't drawn a hentai inspired chapter in a long while so I'm going to assume it'll end with a bunch of fan service at this point.

      I mention Naruto and One Piece since they're the only other long running series I've cared about. I guess Berserk should be included to but its only a long running series because the guy makes 1-2 chapters every 5 years. -_-; i tried reading hajime no ippo but f*ck that. It's somehow longer than one piece and shows no sign of ending. I loved the anime tho.

      Considering what I know of One Piece I'd have to agree as it's quite obvious he's working toward a set goal (I still need to sit down and watch it as well as get caught back up on the manga (I believe I got to chapter 30 or 40 before I quit reading due to other concerns) as everything he does feels planned (by what I've read and heard from others). I can't comment much on Naruto as the only chapter I've read is the final one but again it seemed he knew where he was going from the get go (the anime on the other hand didn't seem like it knew where it was going).

      Yea, I need to get back into reading Berserk (I stopped reading at volume 9 but I do have up to volume 35 downloaded) and start reading Five Star Stories (you think Berserk is bad, the author for FSS went on a 9 year hiatus before he started up again in 2015 (stopped in 2006) and the manga has been going on since 1986, I think he's currently on hiatus again).

      lol. wow. XD It took Gutts and the group 9 years of manga chapters to get to the current island they're on.. take your time reading it, you'll catch up and then wait 8 more years for more progress to be made.

  5. I'm not really a knife guy, so I don't know much about how to properly sharpen a knife aside from using the honing steel that came with my knife block. Over the last year I've been annoyed as all hell with my knives not keeping an edge worth a damn. They're all dull as hell but instead of buying another set of knives I decided to buy a knife sharpener. I bought this and got in the mail today from amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Lansky-3143-PS-MED01-BladeMedic/dp/B0085PPSIQ/ I only have a cheap $60 set of knives to sharpen that I originally bought from walmart over 8 years ago. This thing does the job. I watched some videos about sharpening with it and that carbide part shreds metal off my blades at a surprising rate. From the 3 blades I've sharpened so far, they were so dull that they needed to be passed through that carbide part at least 10 times with moderate pressure. Now my steak knives can actually cut through a steak again. lol. But after seeing how much metal comes flying off these blades I was thinking about getting a whetstone for next time. Does anyone have experience with using knife sharpeners? Any recommendations for whetstones? The ceramic part on this sharpener is no where near as aggressive as the carbide part, but I have a couple decent paring knives that I'd rather never use on this because of how small they are and I want to keep all the metal on them.
  6. Thanks for the info! My hands aren't steady enough to get a consistent edge at all. That KME system looks extremely effective and the reviews with pics on Amazon show perfect factory style edges which makes my recently sharpened blades looks extremely crude and caveman like by comparison. But damn that's costly. $200 is way to high for me. If I had blades that costed more than the sharpener then it could be worth it. That work sharp field sharpener looks good but I think I'll go for a cheap whetstone as my next sharpener. I've sen some use oil instead of water, I think I'll go for a water based one over oil so it'll be less cost over the long term. I use my bench grinder to sharpen my lawn mower blade, axe and machete once a year or every couple years depending on use but I bet with a whetstone or with that KME system i could get my machete edge to sword quality. Lol.
  7. No Destroyah... booooo!
  8. Same here. I'd always find them next to the pickles and on the same shelf with the ketchup. If I go to walmart, the tomatoes will be across from the lettuces and near the bananas and potatoes. At my local store the tomatoes are right next to the lettuces, apples, oranges, etc. But over at the wegmans store the tomatoes are near the grapes and all the other fresh fruit. All the canned tomatoes are all sold with the pasta sauce and noodles. If I remember right, the soups are across from that with the canned veggies somewhere further off or in a different isle.
  9. I'm adopting a cat from the shelter. :D We went there last saturday and picked her out. A little kitten 4 months old. We're waiting to hear back from the place about when to pick her up. They give her full vaccinations, spay and a month of flea treatment. They have to spay her before they can release her to us, so we just gotta wait a few more days to find out when we can get her. They got hit with multiple large hoarding cases recently of saved animals and theres alot of volunteers there now. I hope this shelter doesn't screw this up. We have little cat toys and a new litter pan all ready for her.

      ROTFLMAO! XD Oh screw that. Contacts and allergies would never work for me. XD

      God I'd love to have a cat/kitten but like both of you I'm allergic (and not mildly, I've almost been run to the hospital more than once due to an allergic reaction brought on by a cat). It fucking sucks because cats adore me and always come near me (and I have to pet them because KITTY!). I am thinking of getting a Siberian in the future though pending on whether I can handle their fur or not (they're one of the 5 breeds that don't set off most people allergies that are allergic to cats. Sadly they're also $1200 for a kitten from a breeder).

      I can handle dogs fine (though I am mildly allergic). It's a good thing because I get stuck watching my parents dog quite a bit (cute little scamp but annoying as all hell).

      That's one expensive cat breed. O_O

      We got the phone call earlier today... We get to pick up our kitty some time tomorrow. :D

  10. After looking at that pizza again its pretty nasty. lol. Sliced pork, shrimp and raw pineapple looks like a horrible combo. My favorite pizza with pineapple on it isn't sold in NY state. I'd have to go back to Ohio or some other state to get to a Donatos so I could order a "Hawaiian Pizza". Their hawaiian pizza has shaved ham, pineapple, almonds and cinnamon. It sounds horrible, but my god it is delicious. This is the best pic I can find of it online: Hmm. I never realized its a fruit. lol. I like getting cans of black olives to put in salads, but I don't care for green olives at all. But in the grocery store the cans of olives aren't located with the other canned fruit, but tomatoes are sold right along with apples and bananas. Ewww.. Peanut butter with sliced banana is the superior sandwich. (at least when I was a kid.)
  11. Back when I was a kid my dad would make pizza every friday. While I loved having pizza, after the first 10 years of pepperoni or cheese pizza once a week I got a bit bored and tried to be creative with some extra toppings. I was young and tried a bunch of stuff. I loved putting bananas on my pizza. The combo with pineapple doesn't sound appealing tho. Bananas and pepperoni went good together at the time. But I also liked to occasionally put some Oreo pieces on my pizza too. I bet it all tastes disgusting to me now.
  12. I only bought the $1 minimum of the first capcom bundle so most of these games I don't own yet, except for Strider. And I do have Resident Evil HD remaster on PS4 through PS+.
  13. https://www.humblebundle.com/capcom-rising-bundle This looks like good capcom deal. A bunch of Resident Evil and Dead Rising games. I love killing zombies.
  14. https://www.vg247.com/2017/07/11/destiny-2-contains-so-much-story-content-bungie-hopes-people-complain-about-it/ lmao. I guess they finally decided to ditch the grimoire cards and put the story in the actual game.
  15. Knight Rider is classic. Now heres a really old one.. I've watched every episode of MASH. My parents loved that show when I was a kid. And MacGyver was amazing and inspired the hell out of Mythbusters on more than one occasion. Richard Dean Anderson was also in Stargate SG-1 for multiple seasons. Great scifi show: Farscape was one of the best scifi shows ever made. Its a shame its left netflix earlier this year. I'd like to buy it on bluray at some point.
  16. Until Dawn looks good and I'll play Game of Thrones.
  17. Ohhhh.. Theres an Outlaw Star blu-ray boxset now.
  18. I watched this last night. It was enjoyable but way too short. I'd have rather waited another 6 months for a full season than get 4 episodes of an incomplete story. The voice acting wasn't that good and shifted way to much in volume from normal talking to whisper dialogue that had no reason to be whisper quiet. The action scenes were good but it felt like they spent as much time falling as they did fighting. Lol. I'm looking forward to season 2 but it needs to be more than 4 eps.
  19. The last US one was decent, but after I watched it again and realized the marine guy was Kick-Ass, I couldn't unsee it. I do wish more movies would lay off the 'main actor is in the army/navy/marines and the girlfriend is a nurse/doctor/medical professional' Godzilla and Battleship both did it as well as countless other b-movies. I still haven't seen Shin Godzilla. The trailer looked good for it but I never got around to downloading it.
  20. I received an email from Netflix this morning telling me this series is now available.. and its only 4 episodes. I was hoping for a normal sized series. I'll watch it this weekend.
  21. I forgot about this game. The animation style looks really unique for a game. I bet it'll come out in a humble bundle within a year. lol.
  22. Well it did start airing over 12 years ago so I suppose that is old now. I've only seen the first 5 or so episodes of HIMYM. I should bing watch it some day. That got me thinking of old classic sitcoms. I loved Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond and Malcom in the Middle back in the day.
