  1. 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. ^_^

  2. 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

      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.

      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!

      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

  4. 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

      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

  5. 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

      XD, I gave up resisting years ago. They put these sales up and my self-restraint goes right out the window. It's like they know

      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.

  6. 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

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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

      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

  9. Yay, I have internet again. God damn cable splitters going bad >.<

    1. Eppy

      Eppy

      Splitters are more common a problem then you think and easily overlooked. Most of the time its older splitters that are still analog instead of digital.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Yea that's what the tech said when we determined the problem. I've never dealt with splitters going bad so I was surprised when he said that was the problem. Thankfully he replaced all the old ones we could find while he was here so this most likely won't happen again for while.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Just remember where all those splitters are if you ever get whole house DVR. I got it with a promo.. my internet bill went up $7 more a month but I got WHDVR, HBO and extreme internet.. but when the guy came over he needed to install these 2 inch long adapters onto every single splitter.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

      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.

      I agree with that. *nod*

  13. 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.

    3. Pchan

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. You know I hate the time difference between us and Britain, makes watching soccer hard >_< (especially when you work nights)

      GG when it comes to sports I'm one of the most un-American sports fans you'll ever meet. The only American sport of watch is football and only when my team is doing good (which hooray for the 49ers. Superbowl Baby!). I spend more time watching Soccer and Rugby (when I can, rarely shown on TV over here) then I do anything else sports wise.

    3. DeathscytheX

      Yes, thank you for beating the Falcons... I couldn't bare to see a Falcons logo in my superdome.

  17. Wow, mobile version of the site is confusing me >.<

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I did not notice that. lol.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Oh I figured it out but at 6 am after 7 hours of work the mobile version is a little daunting (and confusing). Though I do say I like the way it looks and (as I noticed right before posting this status update) you can switch it over to the full version.

      And a GG says what?

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

  19. Holy shit that was awesome, talk about freaking lucky.

    I only wish I could of taped my friends knife winning kill he had the other night I was playing with him. Not as epic as that but lets just say the guy he threw the knife at won't be having children anytime soon (and to think it was the game winning kill at that).

  20. I've only shot down three harriers and two helo's. I can never find the damn UAV's when they're called in, mostly because I'm never outside to see them X'D. I've never actually tried to shoot down a pave low yet (or a supply chopper) and hardly anyone I play against uses the AC130 or the stealth bomber so I never get a chance to shoot those down.

    The absolutely one thing I hate is those damn predator missiles, you can't out run them and everyone freaking uses them (I love using them myself but hate having them used against me).

  21. I was kinda taken aback by it's increased fire rate but now that I've gotten used to it I'm a freaking maniac with it. Don't know if I like the Heartbeat Sensor though, it's confusing as fuck. It's nice when someone with scrambler is nearby because you can find them but it's a pain in the ass to use effectively on a long range weapon like that.

    I can't wait to get my ACOG for it. I hated that scope in the last game but I like how they changed and did it in this one. I'm going to be freaking deadly with it when I get it.

    O.o you tried out Scavenger yet for you perks? I absolutely love that perk, especially the pro version with increased mags. You never freaking run out of ammo, it's so damn nice.

  22. (I'll get the hang of this one day, sigh)

  23. Eh, I said that without really using it. After using it (and being 9 kills away from my heartbeat sensor. with bling on the heartbeat sensor and silencer/red dot will be freaking powerful) I retract my previous statement. It's so much more accurate then it's CoD4 counterpart.

    I've been to overly focused on SMG's (something I need to get off of) to try the other weapons (and that'll have to wait, I just unlocked the P90 and since you can Akimbo them I'm going to have a hay day with them).

  24. Running and gunning with SMG's just takes a little more practice, I should know thats all I use right now (trying to get all the attachments for it then I'll move onto the next one).

    Haven't tried LMG's yet and assaults I'm a little disappointed in (like why is the AK-47 the last one you can unlock at the highest level, thats freaking ridiculous). My M4 just doesn't see as good as it was in CoD4

  25. I'm officially in love with it, the story if freaking awesome and multiplayer is so much better then CoD4.

    The Akimbo attachment fucking rules, dual UMP45's is OP (I was dominating for awhile with them, switched back to red dot sight though so I can finish attachments). Gotta work on the ammo though, go through it too fast.
