    With a name like Wade Watts I expect his parody version to be named Slade Slots who has an addiction to Loot Boxes.

    Tracer from Overwatch makes a cameo. This looks like a lot of fun, but I hope they don't go so nuts with these cameos that it overshadows the story telling.

    Those eyes X.X
    I hate to be the guy jumping on the hate train again but based on this trailer the movie is going to be horrible (and believe me I hate to say that, I've been waiting for some sort of adaptation for Gunm for years (besides the Anime OVA which wasn't all that bad, not great but not bad) but this is cringe worthy). Plus that body *shudder* it's just horrible. At least the Major's in GitS was more believable than this. When I watched this earlier I had to force back my gag reflex, that's just how disgustingly horrible I find this.

    He actually says he's in Japan in the Middle Ages which is technically correct as this period of time would be considered Japan's Middle Age we just refer to it as Feudal Japan. Either or would be correct for the translation though, since I don't speak Japanese, I don't know exactly how it's originally worded.
    I might actually have to watch this. Don't usually get excited about animated superhero shows but this one looks good. Though, considering how he's dressed, I'd consider this more like Batman Samurai not Ninja. He's clearly wearing Samurai armor and wielding a Katana both of which Ninja did not wear or use (sorry but it just kinda bugs me that they'd use Ninja even though he's clearly dressed and acting like a Samurai).

    It looks neat but I'm confused as to why Batman says he's back in the Middle Ages.
    I always thought Middle Ages referred to a large point in time where authority preferred Might Makes Right over Intelligence. This isn't to say that Japan didn't have a Middle Age. Rather it is to say its confusing to see Batman go back in to protect what should be Middle Age Criminals from other Criminals.

    On the other hand Bruce Wayne is a Billionaire who secretly beats up poor people who have turned to the life of being henchmen.

    I'm still using the condi druid build with Soulbeast swapped out for Druid, seems to work just find. I didn't know dagger was a condi weapon, It didn't seem like it in the beta. I guess I'll have to check it out.
    I have no interest in trying Deadeye. DD is just an OP class and will always remain the best spec, not only for its raw damage output, but its sustain. I could never play base thief because of how squishy it was, but that healing signet is a difference maker.

    I'm not shocked that they're making a Rampage movie
    I'm shocked that Uwe Boll didn't ruin making a Rampage movie based on the Video Game.
    Also I'm kind of disappointed they changed the origins of George, Ralph, & Lizzy.

    Rampage may not be as iconic as other video games that received terrible movies, and many people my go see this without knowing its based one on. It may be a fun watch though. JDM is acting like Negan.

    I love unfogging all the maps super fast. I found my favorite points to start from on each map and send a alt there to swoop the whole thing in a few minutes.
    I went ahead and collected all the new Ranger pets tonight. Out of all the new specs, I think Soulbest is my favorite because it offers the most improvement to Ranger's fighting ability. Base Ranger's utilities were never that great for offense, and I really like some of these stances you get. Beast mode adds a nice touch offering new and useful F1-3 abilities the class never has had since the pet occupied that area. The Jacaranda is great for beast mode because it gives ranger a second heal much like Guardian's F2. Outside of beastmode tho, the little tree monster is a bit too aggressive. Holy cow, it chases things down way far off putting me into combat undesirably. I don't know if its a bug just for it, but it seems to want to just fight non stop.
    There is no reason not to be DD still. I took my thief into Crystal Oasis and ROTFLstomped every forged raiding party I found in seconds, and then melted some Vet Hydras like jokes. Sometimes those Forged Assemblers can do some damage with those spinning blade attacks, but my DD never even gave them a chance to perform it. The Hydra barely could get off one meteor strike attempt before its heads went flying off. With no pocket raptors to mow me down when I'm not paying attention, PoF enemies can't touch me on this character. I may have gone down once, but instantly rallied because everything was almost dead already when it happened.  I mean Staff DD does more damage spamming 1, while spamming 5 off initiative regen, than 2 DH traps, and the GS4-2 combo. So much DPS.

    Not exactly good news if you ask me considering that, unless the original author does it, anything added to an epic fantasy series like this will feel unoriginal and uninspired. It's no secret that I'm not the biggest fan of Peter Jackson's LotR movies (I still feel they were shitty adaptations but given time constraints I understand why they cut a variety of things) and while I think he did an amazing job with The Hobbit Trilogy (still not as faithful as I'd of liked but still very good movies (Legolas should of never been in the movies as he was never in the book)) I just feel no one is capable of adapting LotR faithfully enough for me to be happy about it (then again my opinion will always be disregarded because money).
    The Silmarillion could never be adapted into a TV series or movie considering that book is a collections of unfinished stories Tolkien wrote before he died that Christopher compiled into a book (with his own revisions and additions). It's to disjointed to get a real feel for anything going on and the writers would have to take severe liberties just to make a coherent enough movies/show (something I'd hate because no one really knows how Tolkien would of finished those stories).
    Yea, suffice to say I'm going to be severely disappointed with whatever comes out of this deal (unless it's an actual, faithful adaptation of the books). I just feel this franchise should be left alone and not messed with but again my opinion matters not because money.

    Right now there are no guns, but all the big streamers seem to think they'll add them eventually, and I wouldn't doubt it. There are less guns in this game than there were in WAW. Right now its all cosmetics, XP boosters, and unlocks you could buy with your tokens you get from challenges and orders. I got an MG42 variant that gives me 15% more xp per kill. The launch of this game has been a train wreck though. I can't play with friends more than one match without getting booted to the main menu.
    I beat the campaign and it didn't disappoint. Overall it's top 3. The end was a bit anti-climatic in how it was done, but it definitely had several memorable moments.

    Against my better judgement I broke down and got this game. My clan has pretty much stopped playing D2 and since I have everything at 305 I don't have any drive to play it right now.
    The mutliplayer is pretty meh. Every map is uninspired, everything is a hallway, trench, bunker, or small room. I can barely stay alive long enough to get a kill. Getting 2 without dying feels like an achievement in itself. The TTK is fine, and the guns are ok... but the maps just aren't very good, which has been the case for COD for years now. The social aspect of it is pretty neat, along with the daily and weekly challenges but I think people play War for these as your KD is untouched in that game mode. Quickscoping is back and its annoying as ever. The Lee Enfield is super OP that even I'm good with it. Thats a bad sign, because I've always been hot garbage at sniping in COD.
    War is actually really fun. But there are only 3 maps for it sadly. Its a damn shame they came up with something like this only to not really invest in the chance that it could work. Like I said previously it doesn't touch your KD which is good as people care too much about it in COD. You're going to die a lot in this mode unless you're just a selfish prick in which you should be playing TDM or FFA. This comes with a double edged sword though.. I notice people are using their worst guns and I even saw someone use the shovel the entire match... I guess people are going to farm this mode for camo challenges without taking the hit on their KD. 
    Now to the part where I don't regret buying this... the campaign is fucking amazing. The story is the best in the whole series so far... I'm pretty close to the end, but I'd rank it above Modern Warfare right now. Kudo's to Sledgehammer for such a great narrative story full of insane watershed moments around every corner. The campaign has a mix of everything. Stealth, Jeep chasing, Tank driving, fighter pilot, sniper supporting AI, to the traditional shoot and cover. However this one plays a lot different. You can't just rambo everything or you will die very fast. There is no regenerating health. Instead you rely on med packs that you have to use with its own animation. At first I was distraught over this, but I got use to it pretty fast. Med packs can be found laying around, but also there is a new squad mechanic throughout the story. 4-5 NPCs provide support like this off reasonable cool downs. One will have a med pack available (you can hold up to 4 at a time for about a 60% heal each), another will refill your ammo, one for your nades, one for a mortar strike, and one can highlight enemies out of cover. Not all of these will be available at all times every mission. Even the med pack guy isn't with you at times. This game is stunningly beautiful, and the facial animations are the most life like I've ever seen. All of them look like the actors that play them IRL. The must have mocaped them all, because the show of emotion with the excellent voice acting just brings it to life. I got 5 or 6 hours into it, and I'm sure I'm near the end.... so its about standard COD length, but its still very good.

    Saw the latest trailer last night, totally looking forward to it!  HSpoon doesn't want to go as the first one had to many science holes in it for him to just enjoy the giant robot vs. kaiju parts.

    I still own my PS3, Xbox 360, & Steam Machine. Games With Gold & PlayStation Plus still give out games for their last gen consoles. So I'm still going to spend $120 a year on console gaming.
    Someday I may or may not become an actual PC Gamer. Because I like my old hardware too much to upgrade as soon as possible.
    And I might still buy DLC as those don't turn into limited time offers like Micro Transactions.

    I sold my PS4 today for $140 worth of Game Stop store credit.
    I'm no longer doing micro transactions, preordering console games, or buying consoles that connect to the internet.
    It just got up to a point where I wanted it all but couldn't afford it.
    If only
    Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch was a launch title Skyrim VR was a free add on to Skyrim Special Edition ESO kept its micro transactions to $90 max instead of becoming $150 It were easy to save money for a Nintendo Switch It were easy to save money for PSVR I could've safely preordered other M Rated Switch games I wanted this month I wouldn't have felt the need to stop.
    But its just too much money.
    And so this escape from reality is no longer worth it.
    The last consoles I buy will probably be an N64 Classic & Game Cube Classic.

    Nah. I had 2 of my characters to 305 last week and got my Warlock to 305 this week as I was waiting for a bond to drop to finish it off. Now I don't have anything to do and will probably only play on Tuesdays unless someone needs me for a nightfall run. If they make the raid the only way to get max level in the DLC, I'll probably quit playing though. While there is 8-9 people in my clan, no one is ever on at the same time long enough to even do the first raid. I don't think they'll do this, but there is speculation now that updates on all 3 platforms will be simultaneously released. Then again if they want to keep selling to casuals, they probably won't if they keep the level and power requirements to do missions and content in place.
    I think the light increase will give me another reason to grind. There is a some quality of life updates coming out soon that will fix a lot of empty instances for solo players, and improved rewards for strikes, which will be good. I'd like to run strikes with friends, but we all agree there is no point right now when you can just farm public events for the same thing.
    I think its pretty cool everyone will get to see the lighthouse now that never could get to it in D1, learning about Osiris will be cool, but I'm more excited for the second DLC and Rasputin. You actually reactivate a war mind network on Io which gives Rasputin expanded access to the solar system. There is a side adventure I mentioned earlier that dealt with this. If you're interested in how it may connect here is a neat video.

    There would be no point really. The purpose of the kingdoms is because you can only travel so far with the power moons you gained from the last one to track down Bowser, so you keep going from kingdom to kingdom to gather more moons to go further. With how the industry is going, Nintendo might be the only company that will still make single player adventure games that don't have DLC.
