  1. 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. :P 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. 


  2. Hell yes. Daredevil season 2 was the entire Punisher origin story and in that season netflix pulled off some of the most realistic gun fights I've seen in any movie / tv series. Sure movies have gun fights all the time, but for assault weapons, shotguns, etc. its all special effects and nothing physical. In daredevil season 2 it felt like they were literally shooting guns everywhere and each individual bullet hole was shown being created in the background as it happened. As long as the punisher series has that much detail this will be amazing. It better have that much detail because netflix needs another strong marvel series. Iron Fist and Defenders were horrible compared to their predecessors.


  3. 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.


  4. 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. XD I can still basically hear the hero "Wait Kormir!.... I deserve this, not you!"

    Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition mini console is coming back. Nintendo said in a release today that last year’s popular but hard to find miniature version of the Nintendo Entertainment System will return to store shelves next summer.

    “I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites,” he told the Financial Times, adding that Nintendo had “dramatically increased” production of the SNES Classic.

    Maybe Nintendo actually wants money to go to them instead of ebay sellers. :lookup:

    Shaders are earned through gameplay: leveling, chests, engrams, vendors. We expect you’ll be flush w/ Shaders as you continue to play. When you reach level 20, Shaders will drop more often: vendor rewards, destination play and endgame activities. Shaders are now an ongoing reward for playing. Customization will inspire gameplay. Each planet has unique armor and Shader rewards. With D2, we want statements like “I want to run the Raid, Trials, or go back to Titan to get more of its Shader” to be possible.

    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 XD


  7. 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?

    Before you ask I'll probably buy it on PC if I do get it, for some reason console gaming is not really all that interesting anymore (gasp, I know. I'm turning into a PC master race gamer.

    XD Did you get through a bunch of your steam backlog now that you have a PC that can play everything?

  8. Lmao! XD That game looks beyond bizarre.. I'll pass on that one. XD

    I never did buy Infamous Second Son. I'll download that and play it after I finish Uncharted 4. :D


  9. 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.


  10. 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.

  11. 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. 


  12. 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.


  13. This was one of the worst movies I've seen this year and I watch alot of syfy movies. All the characters were portrayed completely wrong regardless of white washing. Light wasn't portrayed as a psychopath genius murderer, L was an emotional disaster, Misa was a better killer than light. He named himself kira... And Ryuk was dog ass ugly. The Japanese death note movie had better cg. Wtf.


  14. Those new rockets for D.Va look way powerful. I bet they'd tear Reinhearts shield away in a single barrage. Mercy flying all over the place seems a bit whacky. The only real tell that will give her position away is the stream from her heals and buffs.


  15. Its a great action trailer. Still minimal on the plot. So many movie trailers completely give away the entire plot of the movie, but Destiny trailers reveal maybe 2 plot points and then a bunch of stuff blowing up like Michael Bay made it. XD


  16. I've been playing BF1 this week and it is so much better than it was. :D If this game was like this at launch it would have probably hooked me completely. I still haven't bought premium yet but I am contemplating it now. The improvements to this game along with changing this one setting has made all the difference for me:

    With this setting, sniping gameplay is actually exactly like BF4 in terms of camera movement. It made a significant difference for me. One of my brothers prefers the BF1 style and his game play shows that hes better with it, but I needed this setting changed. Much more enjoyable now.

    Onto the changes I've seen in the core game:

    - No more gas grenade spam. They finally did it. I stopped using gas grenades even before I quit playing months ago, but I've played 6 rounds of conquest this week and only had to put my gas mask on once. And the best improvement.. friendly gas no longer affects you. At first I thought I didn't realize what was happening when I saw the gas around me. Since it is always accompanied by damage indicators and the screen flashing damage at me I didn't realize it was 'friendly gas'. Your own gas will still damage you. They also must have changed the sensitivity on the gas mask up d-pad button because I did not accidentally put on my gas mask once.

    - No more RNG battlepacks. You get a bar indicating progress you've made towards your next battlepack and each game you play fills that bar up. I got a battlepack twice this week and knowing that you're guaranteed to get one is a hell of a lot more rewarding to me that throwing virtual dice in the background of a loading screen.

    - Daily scrap rewards. You get 50 scrap for playing 1 game a day and an additional 25 scrap for your first win of the day. Guaranteed scrap regardless of needing rng battlepacks for weapon skins to scrap. Much better and more rewarding.

    - Bayonet charge nerf? I don't know but I only got bayoneted once this week. Maybe now people can't instant 90 degree turn around a corner and gank you. When I tried it, it seemed like my character needed a much larger turning radius instead of instant twerking to whatever direction I pointed.

    - Net code improvements? The game felt more fluid.

    - Operations mode will now auto start another round on the same map once the game has finished with teams on opposite positions.

    - Conquest has map voting at the end of a round. Sure that might make some maps played a bit less frequently, but those maps generally sucked anyway.

    - Sniping improvements. I definitely got the feeling that they highly reduced the rng bullet deviation. Back when I played before I'd keep getting pissed that my perfectly lined up head shots would not connect. It wasn't lag, it was bullet deviation EA put into BF1. As if we needed more rng in the game. It feels like that was noticeably toned done. I could actually see why I would miss a shot instead of getting annoyed. Now when I had someone's head in my crosshairs and pulled the trigger, they'd be killed.

    Overall it felt much more enjoyable and I'm looking forward to playing more rounds.


  17. Including activities, gear progression and all 'content' to the total gameplay time is stupid. I bet the campaign will only take 6-8 hours to beat. Almost every game I play I only do the campaign and then kick all the activities and trophies to the curb.
