  1. 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 >.<

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

      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.

  2. Boba Fett is so OP and so much fun to play. 20 kills with him to end out the match I played. I know what hero I'll be playing as everytime I get the powerup

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      On a different note, I melee killed Vader. XD I got it on video.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Brave man you are to get into melee range of Vader. Boba's blaster is a 2 hit kill if you hit them in the chest. The man is just unstoppable.

    3. DeathscytheX

      Have you tried Solo? He is the same way minus the flying... honestly I cringe now when people pick Luke and Vader... Solo and Fett are superior in every way. A buddy was getting mad spawning on me when I was Solo because I kept charging into groups of imperials and he'd get railed while I was having fun mowing them down. XD

  3. 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.

  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Yea, Right Stuf is definitely going to be getting all my money for the next year. They just licensed all of the Gundam series that have yet to be released in the states (plus the original and Zeta Gundam). Anyone want to donate to the "Get Strider his Gundam shows" fund?

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      XD I bet all that Gundam is going to cost quite alot. :P

      What series hasn't been released in the states yet? Gundam build fighters? When they make another Gundam series like 00 or seed I'll get hyped again I'm sure.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Gundam ZZ, Victory Gundam, Turn-A Gundam (first part was released last month, still need to order it), and Gundam X (yay, my fav AC series is coming over). Plus the movies for Turn-A. I will be so very poor but I'll make sure to get in The Division and Battlefront. I also still need to buy Gundam Unicorn and hopefully Gundam: The Origin will be picked up as well once it's done releasing. Gah, I'm like a kid in a candy store right now.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That is alot of Gundam! O_O

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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

      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.

    3. 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.

  17. Well Right Stuf has yet again taken all my hard earned money. I really hate this time of year and I'm really dreading the Christmas sale x.x

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Picked up the entire series of Clannad (both seasons) plus the movie, Yuyushiki, This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, and I just placed my order for Dirty Pair Flash (the only Dirty Pair series I don't own). I think it's a good haul but I just wish I could of afforded seasons 2 and 3, the OVA, and the movie of Shakugan no Shana. Just didn't have enough money atm

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Nice, I always liked Dirty Pair. I haven't watched the other series tho. Damn Gurren Lagann and FMA Brotherhood on blu ray are still expensive as hell. x_x

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Heh, which is why I'm glad I picked up Brotherhood two years ago during the Christmas sale. Still expensive but much cheaper then normal.

  18. 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

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      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.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.

  21. Well so much for overnight delivery, won't be able to play Destiny till tomorrow when my copy arrives. Damn apparently bad weather >.<

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Dude that fucking sucks. That shit shouldn't fly. They fucked up so they shouldn't get it until everyone who else got theirs. This is one of the reason I don't pre-order in stores, shit like this always happens.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Yeah, The cashier I spoke to said she was going to call the DM to hunt another one down, but if I dont get a call before I get off work tomorrow, I'm going up there and tell them what I think of them and get my money back. They'll never get another dime out of me either way.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Gamestop has screwed my pre order bonuses plenty of times years ago. I've only bought watch dogs and destiny from them in the past 10 years, but after hearing how they screwed you I think I'll switch back to online only orders now.

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

  23. 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

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

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      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...

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      ...ve the characters.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

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

  25. 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.
