  1. Bought Valiant Hearts yesterday and all I have to say is wow. This game is amazing, Ubisoft really outdid themselves with this one.

      It's more on the puzzle end, trying to figure out how to get from point A to point B without being seen by enemies or getting hit by enemy fire or obstacles (some pretty fun driving sections). No real action as if you're seen by an enemy they instantly kill you (not to say there is none, end of chapter one has a rather interesting fight to take out a zeppelin). This game is more driven by the story it's telling which completely has me invested, though they don't talk much I lo...

      Sounds good. I'll have to check some gameplay videos of it.

  2. DMR's are amazing in BF4. Why didn't anyone tell me? They make playing the Recon kit so much more fun

      The Airburst is such a cheap gun but I love it so much (especially on Metro and Locker). I can't wait till I unlock the SKS, shouldn't take long as long as I stay away from the 24/7 Metro server I found on Wed.

      I think I missed the last double XP weekend, but save your XP boosts for those weekends because the XP stacks and you'll get that sks quick. ^_^

  3. Fear my nu kitty gundam! I just had to save it when I saw it because you just can't go wrong with a kitty gundam

  4. First the stomach flu for 4 days and now a severe cold. My body doesn't fuck around when it gets sick, god this sucks

  5. First we lose Lemmy, then we loose David Bowie, and now we just lost Alan Rickman. Fuck this month, I'm done with it. RIP guys

      Its been a bad month. :\ RIP.

  6. Freaking finally, god this game needs to come out like now.

  7. Gah, last day of vacation. I don't want to go back to work tomorrow. Where'd my time go?

  8. Gah, new patch for FFXIV today and now I need to go grind new gear yet again for my Monk. /sigh, here goes 3 weeks of my life again

      The only advantages you can get from monetary purchases in gw2 is more inventory/bank space, unlimited use mining/harvest tools, and xp/craft boosters. Everything else is just for vanity purposes.

      While a lot of it can make life easier, it isn't so burdensome without it that your pushed to the brink to buy them. I've spent money on some of it because I enjoy the game enough to support a developer that keeps bringing free content via the living world story.

  9. Gah, so much for going to the FFDP concert. Sicker then a dog atm. Why does this always happen when I want to go have fun? /sigh, guess I'll be on Destiny tonight.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I hear that. About 1/4 to 1/2 of everyone I know right now is either sick or has a sick relative right now. There's some strong viruses going around. Get better soon.

  10. Gotta love Yuki :D

  11. Guess who just got a PS4? This guy! Sadly I have to wait till tonight to do anything with it.

      I'm looking forward to Mercenary Kings. I thought about buying it when it came to Steam but never did (no money at the time). Will definitely be picking it up when it comes up. Sadly fantasy and old school has been taking a back seat lately in the game market. Give it a year and I'm sure more games that appeal to you will come out, its just Shooters and what not sell consoles so that's why they're generally the only titles to come out at launch.

      Pchan

      Thanks Strider, if I don't see anything in a year I curse you'll get a pimple on your forehead. Yeah, Sledge lets pick em up next time!

    4. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'm glad Mercenary Kings will be free. ^_^

      Yeah, Pchan! I'll have to find some of my old SNES games to play on it. :D

  12. Happy Birthday you crazy bastard!

  13. Hell yeah it does! I just know the MP beta is going to be awesome when they get it out.

  14. Honestly, I think the game I'm most hyped about from E3 atm is Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth. Call it the Strategy player in me but that game looks amazing

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Beyond earth!? Is it a civilization game that's focused on scifi? I'll have to check the trailer after work.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Yea, it's Civilization in space. I never played it but the guy from Firaxis that GameSpot interviewed said its a lot like Sid Meier's Alpha Centari. Basically we get sent into space to colonize an alien planet. Plays a lot like Civ 5 from what I've seen but you get to fight Alien creatures and other human colonists (apparently there's 8 factions you get to choose from and you get to set up how your colony is seeded (what tech you bring, what people, etc.).

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That sounds really good to me.

  15. I finally got around to beating The DIvision's story (thougth I'm still not 30). Gotta say, for an MMOish type game it has one hell of a story. I'm actually kinda hyped about the future DLC's now.

      Paul Rhodes neck beard freaks me out. XD

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      All power to the neck beard XD

  16. I have no idea why I find this so damn amazing but with the PSN app on your phone you can turn the thing on and off. Again I don't know why I find it amazing. On a side note Watch Dogs is pretty damn fun.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      It's also awesome how you can tell it to download a game from the PS store while you're at work.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      As much as I'm loving this game. The complete lack of facial expressions is killing me. XD Aiden and his Sister look emotionless while talking. It doesn't ruin the game for me, but I find it awkward, because the story is pretty good so far.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Using the in game engine rather than CGI cut scenes makes the game flow a lot better as well.

  17. I noticed they had a big write up about it when my roommate got his copy. I'll have to bum it off of him tomorrow and take a look at article (was meaning to the other day but had to work).

  18. I officially love Right Stuf now. They're releasing Gundam ZZ, the Original MSG, and Turn-A in the next year. Strider's wallet is going to be empty soon.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Cool. Are they all remastered on bluray?

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Doesn't say in the press release but I'm assuming that they will. If not I'm perfectly happy with DVD quality, I just want my Gundam shows

  19. I'm quite happy with the gameplay in The Division. Really good cover based shooter but I will say this, NPC marksmen need to be nerfed. If you're not watching you're ass they can one shot you X.x

      I like the marksman variant of the Scar. The MP7 melts things like crazy, buy I like the Vector's stability.

      That would explain the random Cleaner patrols I ran into while I was solo hunting rogues in the DZ today. Meh, I'd get more into it but I'm bored with it now and have no one to really run DZ with (plus I need to start getting ready for the FF patch on Tuesday).

  20. It's so fucking cold outside my car wouldn't start last night and now my Grandmother's car won't start. God I hate freaking winter and these below zero temps x.x

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats some crazy freezing temps you're having to deal with. It must suck. x_x

      Sucks the big one. Finally starting to warm up (if you can -13 degrees warm). By next week we're supposed to be back in the 30's

      Hang in there. x_x

  21. Just finished Turn-A Gundam and I have to say it was a great show. I think it ranks up there with Zeta Gundam for my favorite Gundam series.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I've heard a lot of positive things about Turn-A.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      I did to (mostly from aqu) which is why I decided to buy it. The pacing leaves a little to be desired but overall this is Tomino's best work outside of Zeta. The characters are well written, the story is quite amazing (and it does a superb job of tieing all Gundam series into it's timeline), and while lacking in fights (more of a plot and character driven story) the fights that are there are intense and satisfying. Definitely a Gundam series to check out.

  22. Just got a beta key to the Rainbow Six Seige beta going on this weekend. This should prove to be fun

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Let us know how it is. Not a big fan of no respawn gameplay, but it makes sense for this game. However, that being the case, it's def a game where everyone needs to be on the same page.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Nice. That game does look good.

  23. Just got an invite to the Elder Scolls Online Beta. Great timing since internet is fixed but I wonder if my computer can run it

      I remember when I installed Windows 3.1 on my DOS computer.. Windows used so many system resources i thought it was a pointless graphical operating system that had no future. ^_^; months later I found out I could use an image for a background, my mind was blown. XD

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      800x600 resolution FTW!

    4. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I had to upgrade my monitor to get that resolution. XD My original computer had an 5 1/4 floppy drive and a 10 or 20mb hard drive. When those 1.4 mb disks came out.. it was huge. XD

  24. Just got done playing Life is Strange Ep 1, gotta say this is a pretty damn good game. Definitely lives up to the hype I've seen about it.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I just watched the trailer for it. Nice. It has that telltale game feel to it. Do you get to actively rewind time or is only during certain moments?

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      You can do it whenever you want as far as I could tell but honestly the only time you'll really use it is if you fuck up during an event or if you decide to do one of the major choice things differently (these events will tell you there will be consequences for your actions). Honestly an interesting tool but not all that useful yet. Ep 2 releases next week so we'll see if it has more use then.

  25. Just got out of the Rob Zombie/Korn concert in Bismarck, ND. Was fucking awesome!

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Awesome. That concert must have been packed.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Who doesn't hate him for that XD

      Oh it was completely sold out, Rob said it himself when he took to stage. I was down on the floor and we were packed in there like sardines.
