  1. Yea let's nerf the only sniper rifle I like (and it honestly doesn't need it or at least the sniper varient doesn't. It honestly doesn't fire that fast) but leave the most op infantry weapon in the game alone. GG DICE, way to not listen to the community on that one (Domination is pretty much just Model 10 heaven, it's all I ever see anymore and it's taking the fun out of that mode for me). Not to sure I'm happy about the BAR getting an increase in horizontal recoil though. Not sure it needs it bit whatever.
  2. I agree with Elliot from ETC on youtube, it's a Mass Effect movie that isn't a Mass Effect movie. It honestly looks good and if it wasn't for the fact this is based on a graphic novel I'd swear they stole Mass Effect's original story and added their own flair to it (seriously that body armor, all it needs is the N7 logo). I'll give it a shot considering this is being directed by the guy who did The Fifth Element and that's one of my favorite movies.
  3. Meh, it's not bad. I mean she does spend quite a bit of time time in the manga and the movie nude so I'm honestly surprised they went with it (would of just been better nude but they would of never got the rating they wanted). Either way I honestly have no hopes for this movie after this trailer. Batou looks retarded (if that even is him, I honestly don't know what characters they're bringing into this movie), I honestly don't think Scarlett is a good fit for the Major (she doesn't have the attitude to be the Major), and this movie looks like a hodge podge of both plots from the original movie and the SAC series (plus there own little original story, Motoko has never really wondered where she came from as she knew (it's different pending on the source material but she knows who she is, she just questions whether or not everything is real and whether or not she has a "Ghost" since she's spent almost her entire life as a cyborg). I swear some of those scenes were pulled directly from the movie and the series (the fight in the water is from the original movie and the geisha dolls is from the first episode of SAC (with its own original twist)). I'll admit though those effects are amazing and probably the only upside to this movie based on the trailer. I shouldn't be hard on it but like I said I'm a huge GitS fan and I'm expecting a lot from this movie. Sadly it'll probably never deliver what I'm looking for.
  4. So I'm going to go find a hole and hide in it for the next 4 years, anyone want to join me? I have snacks and video games. (This is all I will say on what happened yesterday).

      I'd take the Rock over the corrupt shitbags we have in political offices now thinking about 2020/2024. At least he's a decent person. XD I think the media learned their lesson with Trump. West is more prone to flying off the handle than even Trump is. They'd just ignore him like Ron Paul. Like I said he could run as independent and do some damage for the reasons Sledge mentioned. But I don't think he's willing to spend as much of his personal wealth to win a primary like Trump did in the first place. 

      The oversight the Democrats have right now is they're too busy pounding on social issues while people were pissed off about health care, national debt, international weakness, and jobs. When people's lives are getting fucked up financially, they don't give two shits about other people's lifestyle issues. You can't want something better for someone else when you're in the shit hole yourself. 

      I see some people I went to school using the usual talking points "I want poor people to have health care because I'm not a bad person!" motherfucker, yes you are if you don't care how they get it. The government can come out and say X more number of people now have coverage. Forget that the coverage is shitty and to pay for it, it's now more expensive for those that use to be able to afford it. Remember when you could just walk into the Dr office and see them? Not anymore, you better have already been a regular patient there or you'll be waiting months to see the doctor. I learned that shit when I had vertigo. It was a 3-4 month wait to see any doctor or specialist. Urgent Care is the only place you can go if you wake up sick and the doc is booked for the day... Good luck there, they just tell you to go see your regular doctor and take $120 from you if you have something more than a basic fever or cold. Oh the unemployment rate is getting better? Too bad it doesn't account for the fact that 90 million people aren't participating in the labor force, and when the government report said they created X number of jobs,  it's all bullshit part time work in which 1 person probably holds 3 of those new jobs. People's way of life has better getting worse over the last 8 years, and activism isn't on the top of their priority list.

      It takes months to just see a regular doctor? O_O I used to go to a small doctor's office with restricted hours but switched to a larger joint doctor office years ago and they're open 7 days a week. My insurance has Teledoc too, but I've never felt the need to skype with a doctor when the doctors I go to can always get me in the day I call them. Medicaid in NY state has Teledoc too. Specialists are another story tho. I've had to wait 3 months to get a specialist appointment before. x_x

      I know theres some real hate out there for Trump right now. It all stems from the negative comments hes made over the course of the campaign. Just like the negative crap Hillary said that was stated in that video. Everyone has been "hate watching" everything both candidates have said and it helped make everyone furious at them. If Hillary won, all her supporters would have been labeled as clones of herself like republican voters are being labeled as clones of him. Now that the election is over the huge hatred of each individual candidate is now being superimposed in the minds of both groups of 59 million people that voted for each of them. Some of these people turned that hatred into protests, others have wanted to start working on impeachment proceedings. On the other side, the winners feel vindicated and call the others sore losers and crybabies while in actuality theres a large chunk of those people (millions) going thru anxiety attacks thinking theres 59 million trumps out there waiting to grab them by the pussy and deport their mothers. It'll calm down after a while once the dust starts settling but that could last for a long time. This election will definitely be remembered as having the 2 most unpopular major party candidates in history.

      On a side note, I honestly don't like Trump and many of his positions. Half my family voted for Trump and the other half voted for Hillary (same with about half the people I know on facebook). I don't always agree with relatives and friends on their decisions, but I don't expect everyone to agree with me either. Life moves on. I wish I still drank alcohol. I'd have drank a bottle of whisky throughout this week. XD

  5. Honestly a system similar to the renown system in R6S is actually a very good way to go about doing the battlepack system. However the skins in the renown system for R6S are extremely expensive (9000 renown for basic skins, 15,000 or more for the very sought after skins (if they're purchasable for renown, a lot of the good skins require you to pay real money for Rainbow Credits just to buy)) and I'd hate for that to come over (though something similar would be nice). I'd like to see an implementation of scrap at the end of every battle based exactly on what the R6S system is, You get a certain amount for winning or losing (less for losing), your personal performance (based on your score), and in R6S whether or not you have a booster or Season Pass (which the season pass gives barely any extra, I've seen up to 13 extra renown for being the best in the match). They could go even further with giving extra scrap for getting recognized for feats during battle (most revives, most resupplies, best squad score, etc.). It has it flaws and only those who dedicate more then 3-4 hours a night to the game would benefit from it but it's the best option compared to what we have. The daily challenges would also be nice. R6S has up to 5 challenges you can do daily/weekly in-game plus up to 4 or 5 (don't remember, been over a month since I last played R6S) extra challenges you can pick up from Ubiclub (what used to be UPlay). Each gives a varying amount of extra renown based on the difficulty to complete (up to 600 renown) and the 5 in-game ones have timers on them so you can't continually do challenges left and right (the first is 24 hours, next is 48, and so on up to 120 hours (5 days)) and you have the option to drop challenges you don't want to do in hopes of getting one thats easier the next day (you don't get a choice on in-game ones, they're randomly selected). If they didn't want to go exactly that route I'd say give up to 200 scrap (enough to by one normal battlepack) for winning a round and up to 100 scrap for losing (half of a normal battlepack) and then give extra scrap based on performance (not to exceed a total of 350-400 scrap just so you can't continually get the best battlepack after every match). You can change these totals based on what game mode is being played (less for modes like TDM and Domination, more for Conquest and Operations (with Operations giving out the most due to the length of time some matches can last)) and drop those numbers if need be (I'm being somewhat generous here with my scrap totals, I'd be perfectly fine with 100 scrap for winning + whatever I get based on performance and 50 + performance based increase for losing). They can even keep their random battlepack reward system as well and tweak it to give battlepacks to those who actually perform their roles correctly/get recognized on the end of round screen (or scrap it entirely). This way everybody has a chance of at least getting a battlepack every week and a chance at those awesome skins. They could also put in a market place for old battlepack revisions to give people a chance at getting the skin they want from past revisions (or go one step further and sell the skins individually for more scrap so you actually have to earn them). Of course they'd have to tweak the puzzle piece system because this would break whatever system they have in place to award the puzzle pieces from battlepacks (I honestly don't know how they'd fix it). Honestly a lot of what was said in that video are great ideas the one I presented is going off the R6S model with my own tweaks. Something similar to what I just mentioned would be my ideal system if they don't want to go back to the old battlepack system from BF4 (which they should, it's not like that system broke BF4 in any way as it was the same system just with more items in a battlepack based on type).
  6. Since the BF1 servers were down yet again tonight (fucking christ DICE/EA, get your shit together) I finally beat the Tanker storyline of the campaign. I have to say if the other 5 are anything like it I'm in for a treat. This is by far one of the best campaign stories I've played for a BF game since the original Bad Company. Good lord that was fun as hell and the spark plug mission was great (I fucked with the Germans so hard it wasn't even funny).

      The Tank and Pilot missions were both 5 sections, but the pilot mission probably was shorter since it was faster paced, with less boots on the ground. Hell, Lawrence of Arabia probably took me longer since I opted to stealth as much as possible. I'm going to have to go back and try to get some more codex, some of those skins you can get from SP are pretty sweet.

      The Lawrence one sounds like fun, can't wait to give it a try (maybe this weekend if I get time). I originally tried to do the spark plugs mission the stealthy way but sadly I ran out of silenced sniper rifle ammo and the Germans caught on quickly that someone was killing them. So I picked up a normal sniper and started killing them left and right, loud and proud. Sadly the AI wasn't exactly that smart as everyone in the area came looking for me (and one damn near killed me with a field gun). It took them 10 minutes to figure out I was wiping them out from one of the windmills which was when the field gunner decided to flatten it. After that I just ran around fucking with them until I got the last spark plug. So much fun though the Flame Trooper made things a little hairy.

      I finished the campaign yesterday and I loved it. The tank and airplane missions were the definitely the best. :D

  7. Meh, I can name all the maps now but honestly the only ones I like are Monte Grappa and Argonne (though Ballroom Blitz is fun). My major problem with operations solo is that no one wants to work toward the goal, everyone is trying to do their own thing. At least with friends you know at least they're working toward the same goal as you. It's still enjoyable but if I'm going to play by myself I'm going to go Domination where I can do what I want, how I want, and still contribute to the team as long as I'm assaulting the flags and not feel like a jackass for not doing what the SL says. I really do with they'd bring back the ribbon system, god the amount of rank ups you can get from just ribbons is nice. Sadly I don't think they'll bring it back just for that reason (200 xp for a ribbon, 5000 for a medal wouldn't really cut it here). Assignments would be nice but I wouldn't want to go through all that work just for a weapon skin (kind of like how I don't give a rats ass if I get a battlepack anymore, it's not worth it if all I'm going to get is a random skin that I probably already have for a gun I'll probably never use). If they brought it back for weapons I'd be all for it (if it's not god awfully powerful weapons like the Deagle), maybe weapons that were historically correct for the time but very rare on the battlefield.
  8. It does need to be nerfed, that recharge time is insane for a weapon that powerful against groups of enemies. They just need to wait until I get my two multi-kills for the medal this week (I got the top 5 finish in a domination match tonight where I went complete ham with the Mondragon and my Med Crate, got a battlepack for it as well). After facing off against the Model 10 numerous times tonight and loosing I'm calling for a nerf on it. The gun is way to overpowered for what it is and has such a high killing range it's not even funny (I hate to say that too because shotguns never get any love and when they do shit like this happens, I'm sad that I have to call for a nerf on it). After playing Support last night I fully agree that LMG's need some damn love, they're just to shitty of a gun to play with making support the least picked class of them all (unless you're going mortar crazy). Honestly they need to go back to the LMG model from BF4 and tweak it just enough to make it believable for a gun from this time period (don't make them overly accurate but at least make them able to hit something) and, even though I think the BAR should be placed in Assault or Medic class weapons (technically it's the first Auto Rifle ever created if you think about it based on mag size and accuracy), they need too up the mag size for it. I now the 40 round mag was rare and only an AA variant but I honestly think it needs it since its honestly the only good gun Support has. I have to say, with the bugs, I love this game. While I'm still not entirely to hip with MP and how they're handling certain things (I'm just to used to and spoiled by BF4) the game is just a blast to play. I do, however, have to say operations are extremely boring without friends. If I'm playing by myself I'm going to be sticking to Domination as it's freaking fun as hell and is more enjoyable when you're by yourself. On the Supernatural thing, I'm not in any hurry to watch Season 12 honestly. I could of watched Season 11 while it aired but I choose to wait until Netflix gets it so I can just binge watch the hell out of it when they do. Honestly Season 11 has been good so far (I've got roughly 6 episodes left, give or take a few) but I'm getting sick of the biblical shit (the only appealing thing for this season is them going back to the monster of the week vibe for a few episodes which really sold me on the series to begin with). It was ok in season 4 and is just being over played now (there's only so many times I can watch the brothers get bitch slapped by angels and enjoy it, now Crowley bitch slapping them on the other hand is always enjoyable to watch (my favorite character from the series other then Charlie)) and by what I've read they're still continuing on that line in Season 12 (what with you know who coming back into the picture). Ok now that I've sidelined this enough back to you're regularly scheduled BF1 chat.
  9. What they need to do is just go back to the old system for battlepacks and give us one after every rank up or every other rank up because we're honestly not getting anything that changes the game in any way, just skins for our guns (that don't add stats or anything). I'd understand if what we were getting was game changing but honestly it isn't. That or they need to do what Sledge said and give us a proportionate amount of scrap at the end of each week or just a certain amount after every match we play (more for game modes like Operations that can go on for over an hour). DICE really dropped the ball with battlepacks this time and while I understand they want to go down the same road as CS did (Valve rakes in the dough with those cases, it's not even funny. Chaaboy himself blows at least $200 or so a week in cases) but it doesn't work for a game like this where these skins have no monetary value besides what you pay for battlepacks (whenever they finally implement it). I love Monster but due to my High-Blood pressure I can't drink them anymore (or very sparingly) so it sucks they went that route for battlepacks. Also I think the problem is on your end for our communication issues DX. The minute Sledge dropped from the party it said I couldn't chat with you due to NAT restrictions on your end (whatever that could but I don't know considering we were talking just fine yesterday and on Saturday without Sledge). I'll monkey with my settings tomorrow and see if it might be on my end. By the way I should be on all this week at roughly the same time (depending on when I get off of FFXIV, new patch drops this week and the last part of my Anima weapon questline drops so I might get absorbed in it), I decided that I'd hold off finishing Supernatural season 11 until next week/this weekend (I should hopefully get a 3-day weekend this week, I say hopefully because my boss is good at procrastinating and forcing us to work overtime on Fridays) since BF1 is scratching that FPS itch I didn't know I was having.
  10. I'm assuming they went with a beefier battery then that DX considering they're praising this thing for its portability. I'm going to guess you're looking at the average life of a high-end tablet maybe even laptop level (then again that ain't much, when my battery was new my laptop would get 3 hours unplugged if I wasn't gaming) so probably 3-4 hours of use with light to medium gaming. Maybe more if it has the same feature as my laptop and it downgrades graphics to conserve battery life (my laptop runs two video cards, a discreet card (my AMD Radeon) and the built-in one on the motherboard. It switches to the built in one while my laptop is running on battery to help conserve battery power (though I have it disabled, my on-board card cause major fucking issues when it switches)). Plus considering how much actual gaming you can do on a 3DS with it's 3D graphics (roughly 4-5 hours of continuous play) I'm assuming we might get that level of battery life (I mean this is the company that pioneered handheld consoles so I'm pretty damn sure they know what they're doing here). We'll know all once specs are released.
  11. I might of mocked it when it was a rumor but I'm honestly impressed with this console (the name on the other hand can go). Seriously, I might pick one up. I like the look of it, I like it's size, and honestly it looks like a damn good machine (and for once it has a backing of major publishers). Will I ever use the portable option? Most likely not, I own a 3DS and I have a phone if I get bored while out and about but the option to take this where I want is nice. While it might be a gimmick I can guarantee the portability option will be the main reason this console sells and depending on price I can see this selling very well (look at the Wii, the whole console was a gimmick yet it sold better then the PS3 and the 360). I have to say maybe Nintendo is starting to come back around or at least show us they still have some tricks up their sleeves.
  12. Yea my father has plenty of weighted stuff we can use to weigh the back end down come winter (he has some pretty hefty sandbags we plan on using) to give me better traction and what not. I'm not to worried about the crack spider webbing once it gets cold. My old car's windshield cracked during one of the coldest winters out here since I moved and never went beyond going across the windshield horizontally (we're talking temps of -20 and below though I'm sure one well placed rock would of ruined my day. It started out as a small chip I didn't notice and just one night decided to just crack completely and just stopped, never progressed beyond that). Once we figure out how cold of a winter we're talking about this year I'm sure my father and I will look into getting it replaced if we think it will become a major issue (and considering where work and the road I have to drive on it might come to that).
  13. From the album Strider's New Wheels

    So here's a side view of the new car. The people in the image are my mother (left) and my grandmother (right, who I currently live with), they got caught in the shot without knowing it. As you can see it's a very nice looking car. There is some damage that we didn't notice yesterday but the dealer was completely up front about it (a crack down the middle of the windshield which he knocked $200 off the asking price for (he was quoted $200 to repair it had he chose to). He said we can bring it back to him and he'll get it replaced for cheaper then he was quoted). It actually has 46,000 miles on it but that's still better than getting a vehicle with more that 100K. All in all I'm happy with it but now I need to learn how everything works with it because it's a lot newer than my old one and they've changed a lot of things since then.
  14. Heh, that's pretty much what I did with the old car. Usually go in twice a year for oil changes (I'll probably be taking this one in soon, the dealer said it should be up for one in 2-3 months), usually March and September is when I get it changed (on my father's orders, get in changed before and after winter). We'll have to see on the windshield, it's insured under my father so I don't know all the specifics on what it covers (it was just easier to add the car to his insurance than go through the hassle of getting it under me, we did the same with my last car). He'll be talking to our insurance agent next week to hammer out the specifics for everything (we didn't have a lot of time at the dealer yesterday as I had to have him come while he was working to get everything taken care of as the car will be licensed under me and him (only real way we could get it done due to the loan)). Honestly since the crack isn't in my view I'll be fine with not repairing it for awhile (it's down middle vertically so it's not in my line of sight). The only thing I really need to worry about is it's rear wheel drive and I'm not used to driving those type of cars in the winter (all of my cars have been front wheel). Should prove interesting this winter. I also need to get used to accelerating slowly, this thing has a lot of pep when you press down the accelerator hard (luckily I haven't squealed out with it yet).
  15. From the album Strider's New Wheels

    Another, more complete side view of the car.
  16. Don't know if any of you have been following this game or are interested in it but I tried the open beta out for it today. I'm actually impressed with this game based on what little time I actually spent playing it (it might help that the team I played on completely smashed the other team). It's fun, the characters are hilarious (they say random shit during matches when they meet certain characters and what not), it's quite easy to understand, and honestly I love the art style (which is weird because I normally don't like this type of art). This, I think, will be Overwatch's major competitor for players until Lawbreakers hits the scene but I'm going to reserve my final judgement until I play the Overwatch Open Beta to see which one is better in my opinion. I'd suggest, if you have the time, to dl and try out the beta. It runs until Tuesday if I'm not mistaken. Thorn, the only character I played, is awesome btw. She wrecks face once you get here up to level 7 and above. Trailers:
  17. Well I won't be getting BF1 now due to the car accident I was in today leaving work. I won't get into the details but everyone involved is ok (I have a sore shoulder wear the seat belt locked up but nothing serious) but my car is pretty much fucked so I now get to go shopping for a new one this weekend (yay, more payments I can't afford but it'll be cheaper than getting the damage repaired). What a lovely day to end my work day (and I got off early due to having to attend a quarterly meeting that suffice to say I missed).

      It's silver. While I generally like to stick to blues, blacks, and reds for car colors (exactly like my father on that) its damn fine looking.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Well I did get the car today (I'll post pictures later when I have time). After everything was said and done the payments come out to $214 a month which I'm more than happy about. It's a damn nice car and handles like a dream.

  18. I've heard of it but never used it. In fact I don't think I know anyone that's ever used it (my group of friends are pretty much the same as me, old school internet pirates sailing on the good ship Torrent (she will never sink as long as we keep her afloat )). I'm not surprised by it though. Crunchyroll was the same exact way for anime before they went completely legit (well legit but still shady as hell), I used to use them back then when I couldn't find fansubs for something I wanted to watch (it's how I first got into watching Naruto Shippuden, how I first watched Macross 7, and what introduced me to one of my all time favorites Dirty Pair). They offered a HQ stream if you paid a monthly fee but the LQ stuff was still watchable (sadly I paid for the HQ stream back when they weren't legit but I refuse to pay for it now that its legit, there's something fundamentally wrong with that). I honestly wouldn't know if I'd trust this app though, the amount of shit that could go wrong aren't worth the free aspect to it (then again it'd be no worse then dling a torrent off of a shady torrent site).
  19. People rake it a shit ton of money on Twitch and it's actually how a lot of youtubers make their money now ($5 a sub (well roughly $3 after Twitch's cut) rakes in pretty fast plus donations, you honestly make more money being a full time streamer then you do being a YT personality). I'm subscribed to a few people at the moment and if I actually used Amazon more I might actually look into this (just because I'd like to sub to Maimi0 but can't afford it atm and this would be a good way to do it). Honestly the ads on Twitch aren't all that bad and you can bypass them by using PS4's twitch app (for some reason it never plays ads except when you first log into the stream (even when the streamer puts ads up)) so going ad free isn't exactly worth it (plus the streamers get a cut of that ad money as well so you're screwing them by not watching ads).
  20. Torrenting never died for me, I'll be a pirate to the day I die (Yarr!, had to do it ). Honestly I never understood why torrenting died with the advent of streaming services (I mean seriously it's free and the chance of actually getting caught and persecuted is slim to none as no ISP will take you to court unless forced to by the rights holder). Subscribing to Netflix didn't stop my torrenting at all, hell it didn't even put a dent in it. Then again when I was living in Arizona I didn't have cable TV. My roommate and I decided there was no point in paying for TV when we could just download everything we wanted to watch or catch it on Netflix. Then again that's just us and even though I have cable again I prefer to download my stuff so I can watch it when I want without having to pay extra for a DVR so I can do the same. Meh, I guess I'm still an old school internet pirate that can't give up his past ways (then again I do end up buying 90% of the shit I download so I guess I'm a somewhat reformed pirate). There really never will be a happy medium here as cable companies will never give up their hold on the TV market and will continue to gouge prices. Eventually streaming services will do the same as, like I said, getting the rights to stream things is getting more and more expensive as the years go by (pretty soon Hulu and Amazon will be in the same place as Netflix is now when everyone and their mother has a streaming service for their own shit).
  21. It's not surprising. With content providers creating their own streaming platforms and with the costs of streaming rights for movies and shows going up it's not surprising Netflix's catalog has shrunk substantially over the last 4 years. I honestly saw this coming back when I first subscribed to Netflix because it was only a matter of time before others took a page from Netflix's book and started doing the same thing. Honestly I don't know why I pay for Netflix anymore. I rarely, if ever, watch anything on it anymore (and when I do it might be once every few months) besides certain shows (like Supernatural, I really wish they'd get season 11 up) and documentaries (I absolutely love Netflix for documentaries). Honestly the only thing that will keep Netflix going is their original content they've been creating over that last few years (stuff I have yet to watch but I do plan on checking out Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, and House of Cards (which I've heard nothing but great things about) to name few). I tend to download all the movies I want to see if I don't get to see them in the theater and before I buy them (I buy very few movies without watching them and only if I know I'll like them (like The Hobbit Movies and what not)) and I do the same with TV shows since I rarely watch anything on cable anymore (again there are exceptions like Deadliest Catch but that's one day of the week). I've never used Sling but I haven't heard good things about it from the few people I know who use it. I've been looking into getting Playstation Vue (I've heard nothing but good things about it) but I'd run into the same problem I do with cable/Netflix, I'd rarely watch it so it'd be a waste of money (luckily I don't pay for cable so that's one bill I don't have to pay). Honestly the one thing I do spend a lot of time watching content on is YouTube, thankfully that's free (for now, who knows what may come down the line).
  22. That's my current home screen. Sorry it took so long to post it (and for the double post) but I ended up playing 8 or so hours of FFXIV yesterday to make up for my lack of time on it during the week (and I completely forgot to take and post the screen shot, I lose track of time while I'm playing (still can't believe I was on for that long yesterday)).
  23. My home screen is also a Stormtrooper. I'll post a pic of it later.
  24. Yep, not surprised by yours DX Cute dogs Sledge. I just changed mine today as the old one was getting boring and this one just happened to win.
  25. I'm strangely ok with this and it's about time. As much as I feel the game deserves the money that was being charged I'm sadly in the minority there and I'd hate for it to die just because 2K made some shitty choices with it's launch and afterwards. I'll definitely be grabbing it when it goes F2P (even if the servers are sparsely populated).
