  1. Looks like my weekend will be nothing but shoveling. -_-; 10-20 inches minimum Saturday night through Sunday. With a high of 12 degrees.. but the worst part is we're supposed to have high winds. fml.. that will make it have a windchill temp in the negatives all day and drifting snow banks of 1-2 feet everywhere. -_-;

      Your luck with free time is the absolute worst ever. I've never seen anything like it. XD

    Destiny 2

    I remember Destiny was supposed to be this huge plot driven game that expanded into the universe but instead became a game focused on grinding gear and raids and never leaving the solar system. Meh. People can blame activision all they want for how Destiny turned out, but in the end its still a stain on Bungie's reputation. I'd like to see Destiny get completely rebooted with a focus on a single player campaign.

    Vikings Season 5 Discussion

    I got caught up last night. Its a good thing this show isn't made on HBO or it'd be 50% softcore porn this season. I don't think Floki even had enough people there to begin with to start a sustainable population and now theres only a handful left. If everyone ends up dying then the entire Floki community arc seems pointless unless this eventually leads to something other than character development for Floki. They couldn't really go back because they disassembled their boats for housing, but with so few left they could probably make a boat again and leave now. Its a shame Heahmund died already. I liked his character and his personal conflict. That and he murdered the hell out of people which was cool. Ivar is a bits nuts with his god talk. And a few eps back when Rollo said Bjorn was his kid.. it felt like a Jerry Springer moment. And Judith.. shes brutal.. poison her own son like that. wtf, shes almost as nuts as Ivar.
  4. Happy new year!

    Battlefield V

    I got a couple rounds of conquest in and a round of grand operations. I played with a bunch of randoms with my mic off. So far it has been enjoyable. The bleedout doesn't take no where near as long as it did in the beta. I haven't gotten into all the gun customization stuff yet but gameplay mechanics seem decent. The lack of spotting is really throwing me off tho. It was a hard nerf to recon to force people to play other classes imo. Buddy revives work fine but I'm hardly seeing any medics at all. I ran into maybe 2 over the 2 hours I was playing. I didn't try medic myself yet mostly because I kept swapping back and forth from assault to attack vehicles or recon to spot people with it's gadget, it auto spots players when you look at them and I rack up points easy with it. The spotting lasts a few seconds but it helps significantly for giving away enemy locations to people I'm not talking to. There seems to be way more vehicles in this than BF1, but I still haven't seen an empty tank to spawn into, I'm guessing they are spawns at flags and I have to stay in the spawn screen to see them. The lack of spotting is funny tho because of the amount of times I'd run right into an enemy out of nowhere. It causes quite a bit more "oh shit" moments. My complaints so far is the commorose system. Why the hell they had to change it to generic looking icons instead of comments makes no sense to me. And when I'm squad leader and want to set an objective in the commorose I hold R1, push down to set an objective, then go left or right for what objective to set and then the cursor goes just left or right of the objective and I don't set a single objective at all.. Seriously dice... I'm not using a mouse here, its a f*cking controller, don't treat it like a mouse cursor.
  6. Finally got my dishwasher completely hooked up. What a pain in the ass. Mostly because the previous owners of this house didn't extend the new flooring into the dishwasher cabinet area.. and they installed an outlet directly behind the dishwasher that requires a flat style plug I had to order.. and the delivery guys threw away the insulation piece that I also had to order (no charge from whirlpool for that at least). And when I finally got it all in place I couldn't mount it until I added a new piece of wood trim to the underside of the cabinet to give it something to mount to. I know see why installation prices can run so high. wtf. Over 2 weeks I put like 8 hours into this thing. I ran it once for the first time last night. Seems pretty efficient.

      Oh god I couldn't imagine. XD

      It was a good learning experience tho. I now know how to do it in case I ever need to again.. and I found out that sharkbite brand pipe fittings work amazingly well with no tools required. If I need to replace a damn fitting again I'll use that brand from now on. That was the last thing too.. I went to connect the water line, unscrewed the end of the pipe expecting a threaded connection on the end and instead I found out it was a pipe cap that popped off with just the end of a pipe with no fitting to connect the water supply line too. wtf. These people must have literally cut the pipe to disconnect their previous dishwasher instead of unhooking it correctly.

      Holy crap you're right. XD I didn't notice until I read your comment. XD On another unrelated note I should be getting the other themes reinstalled this weekend. 😛

  7. The newest chapter of OPM was amazing. The artwork is top notch quality and I highly doubt another season of OPM will even compare to it. Child Emperor is a beast and is truly an S-class hero. I thought he was just brains and ranked as an S-class just for his intelligence. The fights hes been in with his robotic creations and that gundam he made wtf. Hes f*cking awesome. :D

    Battlefield V

    I have a 5 day weekend coming up so I know I'll finally have the time to try the game out then. I'm kind of glad I've been busy and missed all the ttk drama.

    Battlefield V

    Looks like the TTK was reverted back.
  10. I got my new fridge hooked up over the weekend. Built in water and ice maker is amazing. I never realized how convenient that really is. Thanks goes out to the inlaws and aunt for the amazing gift. :D

      Lol. It's my first. They also bought us our first dishwasher. I'll hook that up this weekend. I've never owned one of those before either. 😛

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Holy cow, mad conveniences. XD Although diswasher can be hit or miss. Ive had some where you could just rinse stuff off and toss it in. I have had others that you had to make sure you got every spec off each plate or else it would get dried to the bottom of all the cups on the top rack after the water jets blasted it off the plates into the cups. XD

    Captain Marvel - Trailer 2

    If you haven't watched Thor Ragnarock you are missing out. That movie was hilarious and awesome. the best line in a marvel movie happened in that one... "did you say orgies!?" And to think this is a Disney company. Lmfao. That scene was the best.

    Captain Marvel - Trailer 2

    She looks pretty damn powerful.
  14. It shows nothing of the plot tho... The suspense.
  15. This super white default theme is bugging my eyes. x_x I was busy all week/weekend again doing insulation work on the house. Couple that with a power and internet outage last week and all my free time keeps getting sucked away. I have a new fridge and dishwasher getting delivered this weekend so I'll be a bit busy with that. Especially since I don't know if the electric is actually hooked up correctly for the dishwasher outlet. I keep trying to play a bit of God of War at night and I end up pausing it and walking away to get more crap done. -_-; ugh.. I need more free time. I'm tapped out almost all of my vacation too. I have a few days left scheduled for the end of the year. Maybe I'll be able to play that new episode of GW2 by then.

    Battlefield V

    Target's free 2 day shipping was a complete lie and false advertising. The game still shows as expected delivery of this past friday November 30. But Fedex tracking shows it still wont be delivered until this upcoming friday. wtf target.

    Battlefield V

    My internet finally came back online... I bite the bullet and bought the game for $29.99 at target on sale. https://www.target.com/p/battlefield-v-playstation-4/-/A-53691372 I'll get it friday and try it out this weekend. I'm glad I didn't pre-order this for $60. One week after launch and its already half off. wtf. The sales must have been abysmal. Good thing theres no longer a premium to purchase or the first dlc map pack would drop the player base drastically.

    PlayStation Black Friday Sale

    I played a couple hours of God of War last night. Holy shit this game is beautiful upscaled to 4k with HDR on. I never realized my regular ps4 could output such quality. I've been missing out on a substantial quality upgrade for years because I didn't think a 4k tv would be much of an improvement. But damn that HDR makes sun light literally look like sun light. I'm guessing alot of the recent ps4 games must all be hdr compatible. I turned on last of us remastered and it had hdr available to. For $6 during this black Friday sale I went ahead and bought it so I could gift the disk copy my friend was borrowing.

    PS Plus Games

    I forgot to post the October one.. oh well.. here is November. Yakuza looks decent.
  21. Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.

    I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.

    The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera. XD I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different. XD But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.

      I do think both the PS5 and Xbox will both hit 60fps at 4k. Thats the knock on the pro and S versions of the consoles now. While they are more powerful, they don't do this. The next generation on consoles will probably not have much of a polygon count increase like previous generations one uping the next. I think it will be more about dynamic lighting and shadows and how much can happen on the screen at once. We've reached a certain apex in graphics that will be pretty difficult to pass significantly. 

      We've gotten to a point though where graphics aren't everything anymore. God of War was spectacularly beautiful and is my favorite game of the PS4 era, but I had almost just as much fun playing Ys VIII which had PS3 graphics with current gen aspect ratio. I think there will still be a lot of games that don't hit the benchmark, but there will be Triple A games that do because they are expected too. With the whole shaky ground big studios are on right now though with microtransactions and pissing off their bases with flat out arrogance, I can see smaller studios getting even more love in the future. I want more Ys and Nier Automata and less annual titles. As long as its in HD and looks nice on my big ass TV screen, thats all I need.

    Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

    I bet thats Blizzard trying to cover their own asses after reading that people would have taken the news better had they said anything about Diablo 4. Lol. They could have had a single wallpaper image and said "We're working on it!" but instead nothing. Then a couple days later.... "We planned to show something about Diablo 4..." Sure.. Sure they did.
  24. I still haven't had the time to play any of the GW2 halloween event and it ends tomorrow. :( but i did get the new entrance to my deck completed. I cut a good chunk of the wood fence off, reinforced it with pieces of 2x4, sanded it and reinforced adjacent parts of the deck with huge deck screws. I borrowed my friend's impact driver. Holy crap I need to buy one of these. That thing is beastly and amazing. :D

    Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

    Another mobile game. Ehh. I'm still pissed they never made Warcraft 4. Screw WoW. I want another RTS warcraft game. WC3 remaster sounds good but yeah it's graphics still look solid to me even now. I'd love to see a WC2 remaster. That audience reaction at a mobile game announcement was priceless tho. 😂 there was probably 3 or 4 ppl on the audience that were happy and kept it to themselves. Those 3-4 ppl were the true target audience. The whales that will spend thousands a year on the game. Everyone else will just be a f2p gamer but all these companies care about are those few whales per thousands of players that will line their pockets with buckets of cash.
