  1. 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.

      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 -_-;

      At least it's not black friday. :P

      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.

  2. 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!

      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.

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

      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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

      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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

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

  15. 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

  16. 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

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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

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

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      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.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      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. ^_^

  20. 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 >_<

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

      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.

    3. Pchan

      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

  22. 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

  23. You know Right Stuf needs to quit having holiday sales, I always spend money I don't have on them. Just got done blowing $150 on anime, I think I have a problem

      Steal prices were the full Berserk manga for 50% off. Reissued too, so all those expensive first press out of stock manga is back for half the original price.

  25. 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.

    3. 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.
