    Yea, it pretty much is. All it really gives you is cutscenes and a few pictographs while you're traveling with a basic premise (I've read a plot synopsis from the developers so I know what they're trying to say through the game but it is pretty much up to your own thoughts on it). It's roughly a 2-3 hour playthrough by what I've read (if you only plan on playing it once, I'll probably play this multiple times just because the soundtrack is awesome and as I said it's a very relaxing game). Even though I haven't beaten it I fully understand why this game was so well received when it first came out.

    Time to get yourself a good pocket healer DX, I'd nominate myself but I don't have the game yet
    I just can't imagine why people on console can't get it through their heads that Ana is not a main healer (same with Zen but it seems Ana is the main problem here). If you just look at her abilities she screams support healer as in she's supposed to support Mercy/Lucio. I'm almost afraid to come into this because I'm going to rage if people do this to me because my first goal once I get the game is to get good with Ana (I'm already great as Mercy so I don't need practice on her and my Lucio game isn't bad but it could use work) because I prefer to play the support healer roll and not main healer (and I guarantee my ass will stick to the tank if no one plays an actual healer, fuck supporting a team that won't do whats necessary). This was always my main worry with this game since no one wants to play the roll of Tank or Healer (and the few that do get frustrated because they're stuck in that roll though some do embrace it) that I'd be stuck in that roll because I'm a team player (which is odd, I'd rather be dead before I mained a healer/tank in an MMO (yes I have White Mage at 60 in FFXIV but I don't main it (and I'm mediocre at best), I'm a dps all the way (hence why all dps classes are 60 with the exception of Black Mage and Summoner) which is why I main Ninja/Monk).
    I get the feeling that if the next character is Sombra its going to be a pure damage hero as what little we know about her points to her being similar to Reaper in a lot of ways (a flanking type, which might work as a defensive character but I doubt it). I honestly don't think they'll bring in another tank for quite awhile (probably when they decide to bring Doomfist into the game, he sounds like he'd be more of a tank based character (that is if they ever decide the bring the new one into the game, apparently he was just an afterthought for plot sake)).

    Reaper isn't a full offensive though. He's a flanker. McCree, Soldier, and Phara are your full offensive heroes. Reaper gets murdered trying to charge in. I think that's he biggest confusion with casual players. They just look at their category and think they can do it all. Tracer and Reaper are meant to distract, not be front line attackers. Junkrat and Mei are really the only heavy hitters that can go front line defense, They can be played like attackers, but the rest are mainly backline, and Zen and Ana are not suppose to be main healers, they are complementary. But in QP, once someone picks Ana, forget anyone else being a healer. That's why i always pick Zen after someone picks a healer. Reaper only got overly picked because he looks cool. Hes not picked anywhere near as much anymore over the more powerhouse offensive heroes. When 76's buff comes through, it will probably be even less. It just baffle me that Ana's newness hasn't worn out yet. Even if some jackass plays a flanker like a frontliner, its better than having zero help in the healing dept. I don't have time to stay in Ana's line of sight. We had a boss Lucio on our team the second half of the night and we were unstoppable. Healers are everything, you can mix and match the pieces for everyone else.

    Nah, it wouldn't change anything. COD has multiple game modes and they've never had any issues. Overwatch has a COD sized player base right now as well. I remember one of the CODs had 2 different TDMs and it didn't effect either one. GW2 suffers because of its casual nature. Overwatch is built around PVP.

    Apparently Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has his eyes set on being President as well (I believe the same time frame). While not my first choice I think he'd be the best choice if he was currently running (all signs point to him being a great guy but I don't know what he knows, if anything, about politics). If Kanye runs I'm out, he'll drive this country farther into the ground then it already is (though I doubt it'll ever get that far, nobody in their right mind would allow that idiot to run (even his fans hate him)).
    Honestly I don't think the email thing will hurt Hillary anymore then it has (unless more incriminating evidence comes forth) as it's pretty much run it's course (she fucked up, we all know it, shes paid for it since it came to light, and honestly if it didn't happen to her it would of happened to someone else. Remember our politicians are complete idiots). Trump continually runs himself into the ground by opening his mouth and while a lot of people are backing him even more are starting to see that he won't be able to run this country effectively. Hillary isn't any better of a choice but we can only hope that she'll just be a puppet and Bill will run the country from the shadows (no matter what anyone says he's been the best president we've had in years), he's great at getting us out of shit.

    According to the plot summary on the SC wiki the ship is pretty much forgotten after that point (according to the ships profile it was left adrift). We can assume that they are either still adrift (Zerg don't have the means to use Protoss tech) or they fell under the control of Amon and were one of the millions of Zerg you slaughter through the LotV campaign. It's stated that the crew of the ship was unable to send any word to Shakuras (where they were heading) before the larvae spawned and killed the crew so it's extremely unlikely that Artanis even knows what happened and considering the dire circumstance you find yourself in throughout the game it's pretty unlikely that he would of even had the time to deal with it (I mean the poor guy is leading the remnants of his people in a war against a god-like being who can turn his own people against him).
    While a fourth race would be interesting (considering all three races are currently at peace) I don't know if they'd go that far with this (I mean I'd of loved to see the Xel'naga be playable but we both know that isn't possible). Who knows what they'll do but I'd still like to see a game based on the Aeon of Strife, it'd not only be a game focused completely on my favorite race but it'd give us a chance to see how Protoss society collapsed upon itself.

    From what little I gathered in my skipping about the movie actually does look good but I'll post my fully detailed thoughts on it once I actually watch it all the way through (though I will state I don't like Eisenberg as Luthor, that was a complete miscast in my opinion). I actually prefer serious and movies, even more so with heroes. I've never been a really big fan of superheroes because I never grew up reading comics and I rarely watched the cartoons (my superheroes as a child were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers (yea, I was a huge PR fan), and the Transformers) but what little I've gathered there wasn't a lot of humor in the comics and I'm happy this is the first real film to approach that aspect. The humor in Deadpool worked because it's Deadpool, an anti-hero that doesn't even take himself seriously. The humor also works in the Avengers because, while everything going on is generally serious, the timing of the jokes is just so well done to help break the tension.
    I loved the ending to The Thing, that's one of my all time favorite movies. I wish more movies took chances like it did (I haven't seen Inception so I can't really comment on it but I do know how it ends and I think, given the whole premise of the movie, that was a perfect way to end it). Critics these days want to be entertained and not given a whole hell of a lot to think about, they want Michael Bay and JJ films (lots of explosions, lens flare, etc). Very rarely does a completely original film or a film that takes massive chances well received. I mean look at Chappie, it got shit reviews but I absolutely loved the movie. While it's not a completely original idea and sure the film has quite a few shortcomings but it's honestly one of the best movies I saw last year (and I didn't see it till I bought it and on BD none-the-less) because I actually liked the idea they were presenting and I loved watching Chappie grow throughout the film, going from being an infant to an adult persay (and it's a good look into how self-aware AI will most likely evolve when we reach that state). On the reverse of that look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film took very little in the way of chances and recycled most of the plot from A New Hope yet it still receives critical appraise. Don't get me wrong it was a good movie but it took the safe route and mostly did well on it's name alone. This is why Hollywood is dying and they're too stupid to see it (it's also the reason why the Game Industry has been severely lacking in quality games over the years (and why it's slowly imploding in on itself) but that's for another discussion), completely original ideas and risk taking is frowned upon and no one dares take the chance to step out of the safe zone.

    Powerful Blood got back to 70s tonight so I sold my stack off. I didn't know FGS was going to be this profitable. I well underestimated where I'd be at as I just crossed 2050g. The charged lodestones and cores are def the bulk of the wealth tho. It has accounted for 60% of my earnings every day. That's definitely gotta be your favorite week if you're trying to make Sunrise, Bolt, or Mjolnir. It also helps that I have 8 characters. DR is brutal and effects the map reward track progress too. Its funny how anet doesn't acknowledge DR even though it clearly exists. Thats probably the major reason there isnt a track bar on the core maps like there is on HoT meta progress maps. The tech is there to implement, but people would be able to get those hard numbers on DR that anet is so secretive about.

    This is why I prefer USPS, I've never had any trouble with them and always look for the option to ship with them when I can (plus priority shipping, while expensive, always arrives on time or earlier). I don't mind UPS but considering I don't get most of my packages until 7 or 8 pm when I use them it's rather annoying and can be a major inconvenience when it's something you really need. FedEx is a last ditch effort and I only use them when I know my friend is delivering it (he's a driver and he lets me know when he drops a package off if I'm not home).

    I watched his Demolition Ranch videos for hours the other day... you gotta watch the one about bullet proof cups. WTF? They fail spectacularly. In one of his videos he was shooting through steel plates and his wooden rig he made he joked about it being something a veterinarian put together... and then at the end of his video he said he was a veterinarian... I thought he was joking at first about vet ranch so I didn't even bother to check it out. Then it popped up on my suggested list and I'm hooked on that too. Their vet office is funded by youtube viewers, which is amazing. I might have to send a small donation, because they do a lot of good work.

    Meh, I'm on Verizon's new plan and I absolutely love it. Overall I pay $5 more a month over what I was originally paying on the old model but my plan is a lot cheaper. Honestly you don't really notice the extra money you're paying for your phone on this options (or at least I don't). If I took all the bells and whistles off my account (like Ringback tones) I'd actually be paying less then I was prior to my switch.
    I don't think I could ever go back to a normal Galaxy anymore (not to say I don't like what they've done with the S7's), I love my Note 4 so much I'll probably end up getting the newest iteration of it next year when my plan comes do.
    I've honestly never had a problem with battery life on my phones. My phone will last at least 3 days before it needs to be charged with constant use (as long as I'm not playing games constantly on my phone), I just charge it daily by default (from my old Droid days, that thing had atrocious battery life and needed to be charged daily even with basic use). Hell my old S4's battery still works like a champ and holds a charge damn well (then again I'm anal, I kill all unnecessary apps/tasks when it's not in use), I think that thing still holds a charge for 3-4 days before needing to be recharged (can't say, it's been turned off and placed in it's box for the last few months).

    I thought it was a great show, then again I did watch it back when it aired 12 years ago and haven't watched it since. There were a lot of things I wished they'd of elaborated on while I watched it but it was pretty entertaining overall. There was nothing to salvage after battles Sledge, the enemies weren't human nor did they pilot mechs (they're called Festum and are created by the Mir, what they exactly are is hard to explain) and yes it does take place mostly on the island (some eps take place outside of the island but the majority of it pertains to the islands defenses).
    I have yet to watch Heaven and Earth, it's been on my watch list forever and it's buried somewhere on my passport. You'll have to let me know how it is when you watch it. Right of Left was pretty damn good (prequel OVA). I also need to get around to watching Exodus as well but that'll have to wait till after I watch the movie (as it takes place two years after Heaven and Earth).
