  1. 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).

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Just saw the Minions movie and I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Totally worth the ridiculous price to go see it

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Luckily for me, the carmike theater that I have does "Stimulus Tuesday" where movies are $5 all day. Its about the only day I go see movies anymore. lol

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Damn that's a steal. I only wish they did that here.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That movie does look pretty funny. I'm screwed with expensive movie theaters that are all a 30 min drive from my house. -_- There is a new one opening next spring 10 mins from my house tho. I'll be watching more movies then.

  9. lol, sometimes the way your mind works disturbs me GG.

  10. Ok I think Kill la Kill has worked its way up into my top 5 anime, the show is freaking over the top and awesome.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I saw that the Gurren Lagaan team made this. Hows the fight scenes?

    2. Eppy

      Eppy

      Yeah the show is bananas

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Fight scenes are quite awesome and over the top, plus Ryuuko fights in a scantily clad suit so a win-win. As Eppy said it is bananas.

  11. Ready for tomorrow my friend?

  12. Rightstuff has Ronin Warriors on sale and I'm debating whether I should buy it or not. Gah, get a piece of my childhood back or let it slip by? X.x

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I bought my old Ronin Warriors DVD boxset over 5 years ago and never regretted it. The set I got was dual sided dvds. One side was the original japanese subbed version and the flipped side was the english dub edited version. That english version was my childhood. Its hard watching the japanese subbed since the character I always new as Anubis was actually the name of one of the other enemies. x_x

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Sadly this is the sub only release which is why I'm debating buying it or not as I've only seen the dub version (which is what I have fond memories of).

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Oh, damn. That dub version is the main reason I jumped on the boxset I have now. Its so heavily edited, it needed to be on its own dvds. Even the commercial breakaway clip in the dub is different.

  13. Sigh, the place where I got my new job has it's grand opening on Wednesday. So not looking forward to it. If you don't see me for awhile after Wednesday I probably died from being overworked.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      What makes this worse is I'm management now, the first time I did it I was a lowly peon. Starting to wish I was a peon again -_-;

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      At least it's not black friday. :P

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Black Friday is almost easier to deal with then a Grand Opening but only slightly. Luckily it's a grocery store so I don't have to deal with that Black Friday shit anymore.

  14. So ESO beta weekend coming up starting Friday and Strider got invited again. Time to see what it looks like with a working graphics card

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      I hear ya there, give me the old school RPG where my choices made an impact on the world and story. Sadly there really hasn't been a good MMO to come out in awhile. I love FFXIV: ARR but in all honesty it's just like all the others before it (but, like TOR, it has an actual story to follow which is quite interesting. Plus it's fun to play even if it gets extremely repetitive). Sadly though I haven't run into an actual good RPG in awhile (nothing along the lines of Star Ocean I...

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      ...I, that game is still freaking amazing (still need to beat it though x.x)).

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'm thinking FF6 was the best rpg I ever played. Halfway through the game the world is thrown into war and chaos because our character's failed. That was a good RPG. :D

  15. So finished the first season of Gunslinger Girl, loved it. Great show. Just started season 2, don't know if I'm hip on the new art direction though

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Triela is bad ass, thats what I remember most about the second season. lol

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      I love Triela, my favorite character in the show (from both seasons). Who doesn't love a girl who runs around with a shotgun with a bayonet attached to it

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Finally finished and loved every minute of it (though I still don't like the art direction it took). So glad I bought the series last time it was on sale, totally worth it.

  16. So House of Wolves on May 19th with no new raid? Wonder what Bungie has planned with that.

      The new strike is crazy... the boss fight is longer than the whole damn run through x_X

      Aw yeah, Cryptarch gave me The Chance off a blue engram. Got me a new hand cannon!

  17. So I finally got around to beating Diablo 3 this morning and on my way through Heaven I ran into a demon named Sledge. Is there something you're not telling us Sledge?

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Lmao! Maybe it's the same Sledge that was a boss from borderlands 1. After he died he must have gone to hell. XD

  18. So I got the Galaxy Note 4 today since it was time for my upgrade, damn is the phone huge. Can't wait to check out all the nice features on it though :)

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Does that thing even fit in a pocket? lol. It looks huge for a phone.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      It barely fits which is why I'm glad I bought the Defender case for it since it comes with a belt holster though I think thats going to give me more trouble then putting it in my pocket because the holster is freaking huge too.

  19. So Knights of the Fallen Empire is pretty amazing. Gotta hand it to BioWare, they really outdid themselves with this expansion

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Nice. I wish I had more time for another MMO. I'd be all over that.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      I know that feeling. That's the reason you see me play GW2 so rarely. I play 3 MMO's already (TOR, STO, FFXIV) and I'm trying to get through the KoFE story by Tuesday so I can devote more time to STO since the new season (mini-expansion) goes live. Deals with the mirror-universe so it should be fun.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Damn job and everyday life getting in the way XD. I just recently pulled a WoW player over to GW2 with F2P, she was so reluctant, but now wants to buy the game. I'd def play more TOR if I had the time, I really enjoyed it.

  20. So MSG: IBO is a pretty damn goirod anime. Yes you heard it here first, Strider actually admits a Gundam show not in the UC universe is good.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      *good, apparently my typing skills still suck

  21. So the wireless card in my laptop went out, just fucking great. Sigh, at least I have an ethernet cable long enough to reach it.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I've seen usb wifi dongles for sale on amazon before. I thought about getting one for an old laptop to upgrade it to wireless n but I never got around to trying that out.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I use a USB wifi for my pc and it works great. It only sticks out half an inch, so it would be ideal for a laptop. Mine is made by d-link

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Hmmm, I'll take a look at some tonight.

  22. So went in and got my new phone, Galaxy S4. Totally broke now but so worth it. Phone is freaking awesome

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      wtf.. Ever notice how most of these phone issues happen in China where all the bootlegged knock off brands are usually sold with the real company logos? That guy was in Hong Kong and this one was in china: http://www.tapscape.com/iphone-kills-woman-says-family/

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Heh, that would be awesome. Can only hope if it decides to blow up it does it at work so it can burn the damn place to the ground. Meh, it honestly wouldn't surprise me with how hot the thing runs when I'm playing games on it but in all honesty it'd take more then what happened to make the thing blow. Plus as Sledge said these are all happening in China, where bootleg crap is easier to get and most people buy it.

      Let me know if you discover cool features, I have an S4 too.

  23. So yeah, I really hate North Dakota. Got over 15 inches of snow this weekend and damn near got my car stuck going to work last night. I can't wait till summer

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Lucky? Snow sucks. Don't get me wrong I love winter because I love cold weather but snow can just disappear for all I care. Snow just makes everything 10x harder to do.

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      Dude, you don't know what you're missing. Fresh snow that's untouched is great for Halo Halo.

    3. Sledgstone

  24. So, massive blizzard at the end of March >.< I really hate ND sometimes.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lmao. XD

      Don't worry Strider.. just look forward to June.. at least it never snows in June. x_x

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Pfft, in ND it still snows in July (sadly this has happened before). Our weather patterns out here are fucking weird. Damn global warming >_<

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Snow in July!? I'd have moved out of that state immediately. lol.

  25. Started playing FFXIV: ARR, gotta say I'm quite impressed with it.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats what I hate.. I just saw some guy was selling his WoW account for $900. I suppose with the amount of time dedicated to a game, maybe its worth something.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      People sorely overestimate the actual value of their accounts. I'm sure that guy has top tier gear (from the last or newest raid instance), probably full whatever season arena gear, and what not so he thinks it's worth that much money. Honestly, I've considered selling mine at one time but considering it's now linked to my Battle.net account I wouldn't be able to play SCII. That'd be downright disheartening if I did that.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      At least now WoW will save your character if you want to resume because of free to play.. I'd hate to put in all those hours and have my guy perm killed. I have a Guild Wars account and my character is great.. but eventually they'll shut the server down and I'll loose him and my mini pets forever. Even though I only play it a couple times a year around christmas, I'd hate to loose all that progress.
