  1. Now that I beat Watchdogs, I'll take a break from it for a while. I'll do some of the side missions eventually, but I think I'll try playing Strider next and maybe get back into some BF4 until that Destiny beta starts.

  2. Act IV of Watch Dogs is done. I don't know how long it'll take me to finish the last mission, so I'll be saving it for tomorrow.

      Its pretty intense. Make all the jam coms you can and then go to a pawn shop and buy all the supplies to make a new batch when you use those up. Thats my biggest tip for you.

    2. Sledgstone

      Ok. Near the end of the game I've been using so many jam comms that I had to get the profiler skill upgrade just to locate blue targets faster so I could get more system keys.

  3. Guild Wars 2 is fun so far. I had to delete my test character so I could change worlds to be on the same server as my brother / sister in law. I'm on the Jade Quarry server now. It would have costed 1800 gems to transfer an account with existing characters. My brother told me that was insane.

      Good news, I was able to get my firey dragon sword.. turns out it is a skin that I can apply to other 1 handed swords. Oh well, at least my swords will always look bad ass until I get something more elaborate.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Two handed greatsword FTW. I'm on Borelis Pass. I forgot about the different servers. Lol

  4. I'm almost done with Act II of Watch Dogs. I love my grenade launcher now. If fixers are chasing me, I like to lure them to a back alley, jump out and grenade all their vehicles and then use a jamm comm to make sure nobody notifies the police. :D

      BTW did you pick up the LMG (U100) off the enforcer? It's by far the best weapon in the game when under heavy duress.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Yes! I got it and started using it immediately. That gun sprays bullets like a super soaker sprays water. XD

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Act III is done! The fight on the roof was annoying as hell for me.. that enforcer got me a couple times.

  5. The fairy tail Manga announced there will be a fairy tail spin off Manga. I have no idea who it'll be focused on our if it'll be a new guild based in the same world but on a sident continent.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Different* damn auto correct.

  6. I bought Guild Wars 2! Its downloading now, I'll jump on there tomorrow to see how well it plays on my PC.. I forgot about my hall of monuments bonuses from GW1. I'll have a fiery sword, diamond shield and tabby cat mini right away. :D

      Well events go on for one to two months. This isn't really an event though its the next chapter of the living world. So I don't know if everyone is scaled up to do it or if its only for level 80 players that already beat the main story. Dungeons require 5 people to defeat... but I've done with with 3 and even 2 people before... its a pain in the ass without 5. If I'm on when you guys get to that point and need and extra man for a dungeon, I'll be glad to assist.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Sounds like fun. I'll be getting on there this weekend for sure.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Turns out its only for level 80 players, but as long as I log in during the event I can get it unlocked to accomplish later.. I think thats how it works.

  7. I hate my belkin router. >_<

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I used to have a D-Link wired router years ago and I never had a problem with it. I should have stuck with that brand.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I have no idea why, but my Windows 8 PC somehow f*cks up my wireless connection whenever its online.. That PC has perfect internet, but then everything wireless drops down to 1-2 mbps. I think I have it working now, but the last time that PC went into sleep mode, then turned back on, the wireless turned to garbage again.. wtf belkin.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I had a similar problem with a Linksys router. When my PC went into sleep mode it would turn the internet connection off for every device. I never could figure it out. D-Link has never failed me outside of getting hit by lightning.... and even then it took the full blunt and all my electronics were safe. :P

  8. Yay three day weekend! :D We started watching Attack on Titan tonight. That first episode.. wtf.. talk about a PTSD event.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Is a shame there is no season 2.

    2. Eppy

      Eppy

      .....as I pointed out there is no MATERIAL for a season 2 :P

      Gah! I'm so used to anime having pointless filler arcs. :P

  9. I really need to buy a USB 3 stick so I can transfer video clips off my PS4 faster. Its taking me 30-40 mins to transfer a 500MB clip. USB 3 is way faster. I'm glad my new PC has USB 3 ports too.. I should be able to upload a crazy amount of clips once I get a new stick.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I bought a USB 3 stick off amazon! Its a PNY 64 GB for $25. I'll get it Tuesday.. this damn this will have crazy fast transfer rates.

  10. I can now stream almost every PC game I own in full HD and 60 FPS... even though I have Watch Dogs and I started Half-Life 2, I'm really tempted to replay all of StarCraft 2 just to enjoy it at max settings. :D

  11. I scored a 58 on a par 30 for my first time golfing in about 15 years. I was horrible on the first two holes, but got par on hole 3. :D

  12. I'll be getting my new computer on Wednesday, I hope windows 8 doesn't enrage me. x_x

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      there is one boss that spawns a healing turret for herself and shes impossible to beat with too many people because her turret scales up as well and she gains all her health back before it gets destroyed. It takes 45 minutes with a decent group that at least splits into 2... but most times it takes an hour or more to beat all the bosses. I generally don't jump in unless the healing turret boss is already down when I arrive.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      All the Bosses are level 80, and the cool part is everyone is scaled up to 80 in that area... so everyone can have a fair chance to contribute. After all bosses are downed a donation fund is set up and you can donate a little or a lot. You get the same amount of XP even with the smallest donation (1 silver). The boss blitz starts once the set amount is achieved.

      Now that's pretty awesome. I like that the lower level players can enjoy the fight too.

  13. Memorial Day BBQ on sunday was a success. So many leftovers. The chicken thighs/legs were amazing.

  14. It looks like the game stop pre order bonus for watchdogs will be the best for me, but now I'm contemplating as to buying the physical copy or the ps4 download thru them. It says it can download at midnight but that would be a first with psn.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I agree that digital games should be a bit cheaper because of no physical box. I got an email from gmg the other day for 25% off watchdogs digital pre order for pc. The fact that the game can already be 25% off before launch shows that digital only should be cheaper period.

    2. Eppy

      Eppy

      I got my physical copy for 49.99 at my job :3

      Thanks for rubbing it in. :P

  15. I'm going to finally start half life 2 this weekend. I wonder how it holds up to today's standards seeing as i've never played it before and is 10 years old.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      It's still a great game.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I ended up doing a crap ton of cleaning this weekend. I have a four day weekend next weekend tho. :D

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I know I was able to stream Portal 2.. I might try streaming Half-Life 2 this weekend if it works.

  16. Now I have step throat. wtf. I was just sick 3 weeks ago with a sinus and respiratory infection. FML. >_<

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      This illness devastated me in just 24 hours. Yesterday at noon I was fine, by 2pm I had a sore throat. By 7pm one tonsil was swollen. Then I woke up at 4am with throat pain.. by the time I got to the doctor at 2pm both sides of my tonsils were swollen, swallowing was difficult and white puss balls and lines of white where all over my tonsils. I've been getting cold shakes and headaches too. *takes some more meds*

  17. I think I'll jump on some BF4 for some metro rounds tonight. :P

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I couldn't find that server, but I found another one with max tickets. It took me forever to get those kill assist ribbons. The match started at over 2000 tickets and I didn't get that F2000 unlocked until the loosing team was at 600 remaining. x_x At least I got it now.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Fucking EA. I lost connection to the server right at the end of the match. It happens right at the end of my stream from last night. Even tho I did the assignment and got the gun, I looked at battlelog just now and it shows it not competed.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I think I'll try metro again in a couple minutes. My morning is pretty much empty today.

  19. Star Wars the Force Unleashed 1 & 2 are on sale for PS3 for $5 and $10.. should I spend the $15?

    1. Eppy

      Eppy

      ahahaha

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I bought Force Unleashed 2, and the Jedi Knight collection.. I cant find my old discs, but for under $7 for the whole series. I couldn't pass it up even thought Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy was all I cared about.

  21. I'm cooking some pulled pork on the smoker today. Apple wood all the way.

  22. Yay new asthma medicine. I hope it works out. I'm trying Singulair again and since its available as a generic its dirt cheap now. $6 a month without insurance.

  23. Verizon 4g lte is better Internet than time warner. My phone gets 32 down and 10 up. O_O

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats not bad. With Sprint, I was averaging 187 MB of data usage a month because I never had a data connection almost anywhere. They can offer unlimited data easily when half their customers can never get a signal. -_-

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Eh, I can't really complain but I did enjoy having unlimited data. I used to tether off my phone in areas I couldn't get an internet connection on my laptop, can't do that anymore since 2 gigs would be used up in under 30 minutes most days. Ohwell, it's the price of not wanting to pay full price for my phone.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I never had unlimited minutes before until I got on verizon. Sprint loved to screw me for overages for anything they could before I got a smart phone. At least Verizon has an app to track my data usage right on the phone.

  24. I'm getting a new phone tomorrow and switching to Verizon.. finally. I'll be getting the Galaxy S4 because its $1 with a new contract.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'm using it right now. The screen is huge. :D I bought the best buy buy back program 2 years ago for $30 per phone. Along with the $50 gift card deal I signed up for back in Feb . I walked out with 2 phones with cases and over $280 in gift cards.

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      Learn some features and teach them to me! The only thing I know to do is move my hand across the screen to tell me the time :P ... in fact, make a topic for it so S4 guys can compare/ share notes.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Ok! I'm quite pleased with this phone. I even have a data connection in the breakroom at work.
