    , when you're ripping off Halo you really have sunk to the bottom (don't get me wrong I have always liked the Halo series but that's just low).
     
    The one thing I hate about BF is bullet drop. Yes I got spoiled in COD but I honestly cannot snipe in BF with that freaking bullet drop and that's the one thing I really love to do in FPS games. I just can't figure out how to judge my distance and aim appropriately (and yes I have practiced in the test range and I'm damn good in the test range, in actual gameplay I suck). That's my only complaint about BF and it's minor at best since I do love the DMR's (yea I don't get it either but I can snipe perfectly with a DMR) and LMG's.
     
    The teamwork and various ways to gain xp are what make BF so enjoyable for me. I love that if all I want to do is drop ammo boxes, med kits, blow tanks up, or survey the land I can and I get credit for doing so. This is what cemented my love for Bad Company when I first played it (outside of the hilarious SP). I wasn't being stuck into specific roles, I could evolve to the situation and do what was best for my team (instead of being a corner camper and pissing off people (like DX )).
     
    I honestly do hope this game does well, more so for Sledgehammer's own success. Development studios have been closing left and right and I'd really hate to see another one go especially for a shitty COD game.

    Considering how good Ghosts looked in trailers and then how bad the actual game was (I have friends who bought and absolutely hate Ghosts MP, some have said the SP is alright) I'm reserving all judgement until we see actual in-game footage and gameplay videos. Even if it does interest me I'll most likely still not buy it, I'm done giving Activision money for the same game with different skins. 
     
    I'm not a fan of this 3 studio thing, the market is already over saturated with FPS games and not to mention with COD games. Activision is literally shooting themselves in the foot with the COD every year motif they've been following. You don't give your fans time to invest in any game since the next one is just a year away. Doesn't give you enough time to enjoy the game you just bought. Plus quality is really starting to fall in COD games, I've watched live streams on Ghosts and I'm quite honestly far from impressed with the multiplayer. They all still follow the COD4 motif and do very little to distinguish the game from one of the best FPS games I've ever played (I'll always love COD4 but since MW2 I have lost all interest in playing COD, hell the first Black Ops was a disappointment for me).
     
    This is why Battlefield does so well, not only is the game more solid in terms of gameplay but DICE doesn't release one every year also. Fans appreciate this as it gives them time to play the game, invest in the MP, and actually enjoy it until said time when the next one comes out. Plus lets face it, the multiplayer in BF is so much more fun.

    I have to laugh when COD fanboys try to bash battlefield, and they do it for 2 reasons. The first is that they've never played it before, and the second is because they completely suck at it. Their 12 year old pride get the best of them because they cant go 40-3, and they don't find it fun. If you've never played a BF game before, you're gonna suck pretty hard the first time you jump in. (I'll never forget how bad I was in BF2) It takes time to develop skill, and the beautiful thing is that you create your own play style that suits you best to be successful. The game focuses on teamwork instead of running around gunning down everyone. You could have the least kills on the team and finish with the top score and most xp because you supported teammates and played the objective. Quickscoping yields a 20% success rate at best, you can't outgun someone with a DMR using an SMG from long range, and you have to account for bullet drop... a COD fanboy's nightmare. 
     
    COD and BF really aren't even comparable to me, but Titanfall is in that same category. Even with less game modes and less weapons, its a crap ton more fun than COD has ever been since COD4. After looking at an IGN article I see there is cloaking as well... I would say thats ripping off Titanfall... but its actually just ripping off Halo. lol

    Destiny will be playable for attendees at this year's E3 convention. Here is 7 minutes of action packed gameplay showing off various guardian abilities.
     
    I like how they didn't put it in cinematic mode and left the HUD and health/shield meters in.

    Considering how much anime I've seen this is a tall order to ask of me (643 series, OVA, movies, and specials completed (according to MAL, that's somewhat off)). My tastes have changed considerably over the last couple of years (more so in the last 6) and whereas in the past it might of been action packed series or harem/fan service series now-a-days it's hard for me to choose my top 2 or 3 anime (also, like DX, my top 10 fluctuates as I see more and more series). My top 3 have stayed pretty consistent over the last couple of years so I'll list them and it's safe to say these will always be shows I find myself watching, even 10 or so years down the line.
     
    My number 1 choice would have to be Aria (the whole of the series, no just one season or the OVA). A series that has found it's way into my heart and refuses to leave. I love everything about this show. The art is amazing, the soundtrack is superb (I listen to it everyday while I sleep), and the characters are lovable (especially President Aria, you just can't help but love that cat). Yes, it's one of those cute girls doing cute things shows so it's not everyone's cup of tea (especially since there is no action and the story character driven). This is one of those very few shows that I watch when I'm in a foul mood, it immediately puts me into a better mood and completely relaxes me. I highly recommend this show to everyone as long as your okay with slice-of-life shows.
     
    My number 2 show is a show I never thought I'd like but after watching it at a friends urging fell in love with it immediately and that's Mushishi. Much like Aria I love everything about this show. The art (imo) is amazing, I love the soundtrack, the characters are amazing (Ginko is the man, no one can tell me differently), and the episodic nature of the show makes every episode enjoyable. Again this is another show that is on the slow side so don't go into it expecting great action sequences and what not. The show is centered around the relationship between Mushi and how they interact with nature. Like Aria I highly recommend this show to everyone and the second season just started airing here three weeks ago (much to my happiness, I never knew how much I missed this show still I started watching the second season).
     
    Those are my top two anime on my list at the moment. The third one would be a hard choice as it's tied between quite a few series and movies and I really don't want to choose between them. More so because I love all the shows equally and don't want to demote the others just because I had to choose one. As I said there's no action packed series or mech series here (surprising to a few I'm sure, being the huge Gundam and Mecha fan that I am) but as I said before my tastes have changed a lot in the last 6 years and shows like those just don't interest me much anymore (the exception here being Kill la Kill, this show is absolutely amazing and I don't care what anyone says. Those of you who enjoyed Gurren Lagann (a show I still have yet to see) would most likely enjoy it since the same studio did Kill la Kill). I never really got into the whole shounen genre mostly because shows that last more than 50 episodes are usually start taking a turn for the worst after that point (no I have not been watching One Piece, I still mean to get around to it but who has the time to watch 600+ episodes just to get caught up (I don't even know what ep number it's up to)).

    Yea Yaya has been talking about it non-stop on Twitter (as have Holly, Jessica, and Jesse). Can't wait to watch it when it airs. By the looks of the trailer we can expect one more guy at least but we're losing two cosplayers from last season (I know Monica isn't in this season due to school and I don't think they brought back Riki (Riddle) for this season). Yes, I follow all of them on Twitter (don't judge me).
     
    Heh, I stopped watching Top Shot because of the house drama. I missed the last season due to the freaking drama driving me away from it in the season before. Now I really wish I would of watched it. Sadly this is the problem with reality tv, they're trying to turn it into reality soaps and not give the viewers what they want. I stopped watching Survivor after the first season due to this (loved the first season but every season since has been a sad attempt to draw more people in with more drama).

    Considering how surprisingly good the first season was I'm hoping this season is just as good and it's about damn time. I've been going nuts waiting for this to start back up. Really want to know what happened with Irisa after everything went down the way it did.
     
    It's not surprising the game and show aren't really connected since the game takes place in whats left of San Fransisco (it does doesn't it? I mean the Golden Gate Bridge is on the cover of the damn game). It's be hard to connect the two since they're on other sides of the continent from each other. I wouldn't know much outside of what my friend was telling me since he plays it and watches the show (he told me there was a few connections but they were the ones you already mentioned in the last topic). Would be rather interesting if this season does connect the two together, are there any big events being planned in-game currently with the release of the new season so near?

    I've stopped watching a lot of my favorite gun building reality shows because they shift the focus from the builds to stupid workshop drama and fake issues that supposedly would make them miss deadline. Their newsfeeds and comment sections are filled with anger and such. When you're catering to certain crowds, they watch the show for the subject material, not some BS drama. That audience watches shit like survivor. I'm surprised they filled it will drama on the first season... normally they reel everyone in and then the following seasons they insert that garbage.
     
    In the final season of History's Top Shot they removed all the house drama and made it solely about competitive shooting. The fanbase loved it, the ratings grew by a double digit percentage, and then History cancelled it after that... it seems TV execs don't have a clue that people like informative, intelligent material about their hobbies. Not storylines about personal drama. Hell there is even a website you can go to to look up people that have been on some of these shows telling you how fake it is. American Guns was cancelled because the tv execs felt like they didn't have any more stories to tell... umm wtf? No one watched it for the stories, they watched it for the gunsmithing.

    I really liked the first season and I hope season 2 picks up the pace and incorporates some aspects of the game like the EGO system, Nim, the 99ers, Dark Matter, infector weapons, etc. Considering its a series that is connected to a game.. there are very few actual connections between the two properties. It almost feels likes its the same world but to different realities.

    If M. Night Syamalon was the director he'd hopefully have the brains for the plot twist to be the trainers actually being slaves to poke'mon.... Thus somehow breaking the 4th wall when it comes to people playing poke'mon.... Because they are somehow slave to it....
     
    Still I'm waiting for the reboot of Dragon Ball. Where JJ Abrams directs it. The ultimate finishing move in it will be Solar Flare. /sarcasm

    MW3 is by far the worst COD, and I'll go as far as saying the worst FPS ever made. Sledgehammer had a hand in that to help the faux Infinity Ward along on their first go at it.

    Really Sledgehammer, really? It's official, the game industry is going to shit if this starts happening. "Hey, buy our game but one thing though. There's no single player campaign, you gotta pay $20 more at a later date to get that. Don't worry though, we're giving you what you really want because all COD really is is a multi-player game." Greedy fuckers. Yes the COD games sp story campaigns usually always suck but this is just ridiculous.

    People have speculated what the new Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 will be like and if developer Sledgehammer will make use of a new game engine. Today they revealed something completely unexpected. The campaign will be released as DLC and not come standard.
    So they're going to charge $59.99 for a multiplayer only game in 2014 and then release the actual game for more money in 2015. This DLC bullshit is really getting out of hand now.

  23. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by Strider Hiryu in Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth expansion includes ballistic shield   
    I don't know the exact numbers but every few seconds of fire you took you got 5 xp, which if you can manage not to die for awhile you can wrack up a huge amount of xp. The best way to do it in MW2 was to hope an enemy spawned a sentry turret. Since that thing lasted till destroyed you could stand in front of it all day and wrack up series amounts of xp (it's how I got those 12 levels). As you got higher the rewards diminished as the xp needed to level increased but it was the easiest way to get from 1-12 or even 1-20 in a very short amount of time.
     
    Highly doubt BF4's will work the same way, especially since combat also includes vehicles which will decimate a poor guy trying to protect themselves with a shield. Maps like Metro and Locker would be ideal for the type of tactic listed above but I highly doubt Dice will introduce something so broken into their otherwise pretty solid game. Would give people to much of an edge in the earlier levels to gain required xp. However, I only see that working in a TD scenario as Conquest would be rather difficult to find a place to gain xp especially since Conquest matches are always on the move and you're never staying in once place long enough to take advantage of an xp gain like that (though as I said Metro and Locker would be the exceptions since matches always bottleneck at the same locations).

    I'd give it a 4. It's a really good show and one of the better sci-fi related shows I've seen in a few years. It does have pacing problems as Sledge mentioned which is why I docked it down from a 5 but overall it's a good show. Dorian and John make the show with their interactions between each other and Rudy is great for comic relief. I'd say give it a shot, you won't really lose anything by watching it (except for maybe an hour or two of your time).
     
    I really do hope they elaborate more on why Dorian's creator took all those synthetic souls and all those processors. I get the feeling he might be working with the Syndicate to, as you mentioned, make an army of Dorian like androids on in a worst case scenario an army of droids like that assassin. Could really make season 2 interesting if they focus on that. I really want to know more about these human memories Dorian had because, if what I'm thinking is true, this could have far reaching consequences on how synthetic soul came to be and could really implicate his creator for more then a few atrocities.

    The hovercrafts should add a good dynamic to the combat. Quickly traveling across land and water will make them really useful.
