  1. 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

      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.

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

  3. 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.

  4. Ready for tomorrow my friend?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

      Sledgstone

      *pisses on your fresh snow* f*ck winter! >:o

      lmao.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. The horror, oh god the horror X'D

  20. Today is a very sad day for me for we lost a truly great man. RIP Leonard, you were always a hero of mine and I wish you the best in you next adventure.

  21. Watched Evangelion 3.33 last night, talk about a mind fuck. I still don't understand what the hell was going on

      No, no they didn't. In fact, imo, it made things worse in most aspects and did little to explain everything that I had questions about.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I agree with that. *nod*

    4. Pchan

      Sell that set on Ebay, you'll get a lot of money for it I'm sure ^_^

  22. Well as of today I'm inbetween jobs so I've got almost a week (18th at least) to laze around and do whatever I want. Yay!

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      That sucks it starts up when HoW comes out tho! I got the morning shift that day so I'll be trying it out in the evening. Hopefully you'll get a chance to jump in PoE with me.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Agents of shield has their season finale tonight. next Tuesday should be good for me to get on in the early evening.

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Well it seems I won't be able to join you in PoE fun until the weekend. I'll be training starting Mon up until Fri. Boo, ohwell. Don't have to much fun without me.

  23. Well Gamestop officially fucked me, no Division beta access for me (even though it was guaranteed with pre-order). Sigh, guess I'll have to watch all the videos about it :(

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      XD You're missing out on that awesome orange hazmat gear, it's all the rage these days. Can't be in a societal breakdown without your orange hazmat gear.
    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Wouldn't orange hazmat gear give away your position easier? Wouldn't a better pre-order bonus be something like a pitch black tactical suit? XD

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      LMGs need to be toned down on muzzle rise... They are almost unusable. Either that or they need a damage buff. X_x

  24. Well I just blew $175 on anime, I think I have a problem. Damn Right Stuf and they're amazing Christmas specials. My poor, poor bank account x.x

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Because it's such a great show and I feel everybody should watch it. Based on that reaction you just got done watching 2 of my favorite episodes, such a great look into Valmet's character.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I'm impressed they are allowed to name off Magpul and Sig Sauer talking about their new gear. That didn't come cheap by any means.

  25. Well I picked up MGSV, DA: Inquistion, and the FFX/X-2 remake today at Walmart. $85 for all three games, not bad but now I need to find the time to sit down and play them all >.<

    1. Sledgstone
    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Considering the way I am I'll probably do every Side Ops in the game, I'm OCD about shit like that.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I bought the uncharted collection for $26 at newegg. :D and wolfenstein on psn. With my current back log I'm glad I didn't get mgs yet. Lol.
