  1. Ordered some Corsair Void Pro headphones for Prime Day. I've been putting off a new headset for PC for way too long. I have my cord duct taped and wires are coming out of the ear pieces. XD Its hard to give this headset up because its lasted me 15-16 years. Its just some cheap ass standard Microsoft headphones i bought at target years and years ago. The ear cushions look like cloth because the fake leather coating all fell off or deteriorated. Even with all the wires falling apart, it still works without a hitch. I don't really need turtles for PC, but the Corsair's were on a pretty decent discount, so I went with it.

      Nice, I bought a pair of SteelSeries Arctis 3's last year on Black Friday because my old Logitech ones I bought with my laptop had gone to shit. Never really been much into headsets (I always used ear buds back in the day) but I adore my Arctis 3's, much better audio quality then my old ones.

  2. Nothing is better than BBQ that is given the full time to develop. People don't understand why top tier BBQ can be more expensive compared to other food. You're paying for the time and mastery it took to make it. There was a place we had here, where they smoked the pulled pork for 26 hours. It was to die for, but the guy recently had to close shop because he had cancer and wouldn't be around much longer.
  3. http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/news/956081-legendary-set-to-produce-live-action-gundam-film Awww yeaahhh... you know its gonna be trash, but if Michael Bay doesn't direct it, there might be a chance!!! You know which one is gonna get adapted tho!!!
  4. Honestly if they plan on doing it right, there is no way you can make this without it being a trilogy. Pretty much all of the ones with child pilots won't be picked to adapt. I'd love for them to do 08th MS team TBH. But they'll probably come up with what you said. Some half shit story that takes bits of pieces from random gundam series. If they want an emotionless pilot just let Keanu Reeves do it.
  5. They really had to nerf spotting because WW2 maps won't be too much different. BF1 maps were kind of more like WW2 maps anyways. What ever city maps we get, wont compare to the city maps of BF3-4. We might have taken too much of a break from modern. I'm still not on the ultra modern train, I'd much rather have a 80-90s type modern game. My biggest concern is the crouch running. I don't want to press the joystick twice to get up or start running like when BF1 launched. I hope couch running is the most inconvenient to access. If you mash sprint on the joystick from prone, you should get up and sprint, if you want to sprint while crouched, you should have to get into that position first. Or even better, make it a setting. All these shooters with presets are really irritating me ever since Overwatch made button layouts fully customizable... not only as a standard, but you can customize the controls for each individual hero. If you want to shoot with the options button and jump with the left D-pad, you could do it in Overwatch, so its possible on consoles.
  6. The worse thing that can happen to this game is for people to think its like Destiny. From what I see, the only thing they have in common is a sci-fi setting. I guess Destiny was the precursor for this type of genre, but what I see is a more futuristic Division. Loot drops as what they are, instead of an RNG ball you have to go turn in. Also it seems to drop way more fequently, like the guy playing clearly skipped another purple drop after he got that pistol. The abilities and cooldown interface is more like the Division, and are abilities rather than a grenade and a melee. I do like the 1 character, and multiple suits. The loot table is going to favor what you're using, but things can still drop for another Javelin. Since you don't have to swap and make more characters, It actually works to where you can put that loot to the side or install it on the other suit and build it up as you play on your main equipment. Going back to the abundant drops. I hope this game drops loot like candy. I much rather have a borderlands type system where there is so much shit, its overwhelming, while there is still a sense that you can get a god roll piece of gear. Nothing was more disheartening in D1 when you grind out that strike on hard only to get a blue, or a purple you already had... 3 weeks in a row. Hell, even Mass Effect 1-3 had a better wealth of guns than Destiny. This is BioWare... (not the BW that made Andromeda). They have a solid history of loot tables going back to KOTOR. If we can continue that tradition, I think it will be fine.
  7. I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.

      I hear you about that gift of battle. I should have bought 10 of those damn things when I could have. Meanwhile I have that mastery track set to be always repeating and whenever I see a WvW daily that is "spend currency" I buy some crappy food, get the potion for the reward track and dump it into it. I'm halfway to another gift of battle after a year and I haven't played wvw in over a year. lol.

      That beetle is great at long distances but starting with no endurance and the slow build up time its a bit too tedious for me. That and I clip on every bit of ground somehow and stop all my momentum. -_-; I would say it'd be great for the silverwastes but I doubt it will all the little ground outcroppings that it would clip on if a jump wasn't timed perfectly. I bet that beetle would shine on maps like cursed shore where there are no hearts.

      I had all of Orr done before the beetle. Its probably the most depressing part of WC because it's so dreary. I knocked it out first this time. 😂 You're probably right though.

  8. My Hero Academia is a very different shonen. You'd definitely like it I believe. The first season focuses on character development and world building with a fist pumping finale. The main character doesn't have a grasp on his power and injures himself using it (sometimes severely), it can almost be frustrating at times wondering when he'll ever get full control of it, and they make you wait a good while until he can finally grasp some of it. Its a long game that's paying off. Instead of some OP main character, its quite the opposite and he often has to rely on wits to get through situations. Once season two hits they go into overdrive with the story arcs. It can be campy at times, but its an anime about super heroes, so it works. There is very little fan service, the comedy is well done, and as I've stated so many times the animation and soundtrack are just awesome in a day and age of cost saving CGI. I just finished Ep 8 of FMP yesterday, god damn the start was fucking savage (no pun intended on the mech). I def did not expect want when down in the first 10 min. I guess I won't get to see anymore for 2 weeks since you warned me of 8.5. They need to make another season for sure. I agree about the stopping point, There is just too much going on even where I am at, to finish up in 4 more eps. It feels like we're headed for some type of cliffhanger or open ending. This season has been pretty damn good being full of entertaining shows. Sadly Summer 2018 looks like a bewb fest. I mean I'm not gonna deny I indulge in a fan service anime from time to time, but I can't take the constant bombardment. This season has been refreshing to see a hiatus of them outside of DxD. I've taken a long break from heavy anime watching for almost year now, only picking up a series here and there because of the options we were given. Season 3 of both Attack on Titan and Overlord are my only locks on the next rotation. I hope they continue making Legend of Galactic Heroes. Now that I've been spoiled by the utterly beautiful animation of Die Neue These, I can't bring myself to go watch the original with its 70s style animation. As for slice of life and cute girls doing cute things.. it all depends really. I enjoy a good slice every once in a while. Haganai, Welcome to the NHK, Chobits, HINAMATSURI, are a few of my beloved series. I never thought I'd enjoy a same-sex romance drama, but Citrus was pretty good. I dunno if Sankarea: Undying Love falls under Slice of Life... hell Chobits probably doesn't either since they have supernatural aspects too them, but I consider them to be since they're devoid of substantial action and focus on character relationships in an everyday setting. I have a broad array of tastes, although its dominated by action/fantasy/sci-fi. I have my guilty pleasures like My Bride is a Mermaid and Baka and Test.
  9. Only 1 car/jeep? wtf? I get limiting tank spam, but they need more non lethal transports.
  10. Fully agree. A lot of any MMO's issues is PvP ruining PvE's gear balance.
  11. I liked it, but I never asked for or wanted this movie. And now that it bombed they put Kenobi on hold. The movie everyone actually wants. It kills me Hollywood is like "you have to watch these movies to get the one you want".
  12. I don't blame her either. I hope she goes on to be in a lot of movies. She is a great actor. Honestly cable networks need to get a grip on the schedules. If they'd allow actors more freedom to work on multiple projects, they probably wouldn't have such an issue with keeping cast... remember back in the 90s when they'd just get a completely different actor and pretended like nothing happened? For the longest time you were either considered a TV actor or a movie actor. TV was your stepping stone a lot of the times, but with the movie business not being what it use to be, and streaming services upping the ante on quality programming, I think that line has become blurred significantly. There is no reason someone can't do movies while on a show. I get the whole exclusivity to a single show while its running, but I think you could keep actors more content if they were allowed to obtain multiple income sources from extra projects. I bet it would severely cut down on contract disputes when performers aren't limited to one pipeline of bread and butter, and on the flip side it might save some smaller studios money. Bigger actors may be more inclined to take a role with lesser knowns giving those companies a boost perhaps? Pure speculation as I'm not very knowledgeable about the acting industry. But with all the petty actor and writer guild strikes over the years, they all seem to take place while the industry is at a high point with several successful properties running. As for TWD actors not being in anything else, some find other work or will.. maybe not in the most notable ways. Lennie James does voice work for Destiny, he was in the last Blade Runner film, but before that he was briefly in the terrible 1998 Lost in Space movie. Norman Reedus was undoubtedly the most established actor when the series started having been in Blade II, Boondock Saints, and Pandorum. He'll have no problem finding work after, and hes already in Death Stranding as the main character. Laruen Cohen was practically unknown, only doing soap opera cameos, and TV show guest appearances. Oddly enough she was the Stranger in Destiny 1. Now I want to meet her at a Con and ask her about all the lines she had that never made it in to the game. We'll probably won't see Andrew Lincoln for years if ever. I think he's made his money and wants to spend the rest of the time with the family. He'll probably do commercials and con appearances. Melissa McBride is another great actor, I think she might pick up a role or two, but shes def one of the older actors. Her first work was Matlock and Heat of the Night. She did some Walker Texas Ranger, and I'm going to have to find that TNT movie Pirates of Silicon Valley.. I loved that film, and didn't know she was in it. Danai Gurira already has a spot in the MCU, I know she'll find work, shes done very little before TWD, but I think she's got a bright future and this will be looked back on as her breakout role. Steven Yeun probably won't go on to do anything big in psychical acting, but he is well established in voice work. He's done American Dad, Trollhunters, and Voltron. Seth Gilliam previously did work on The Wire, Oz, Starship Troopers, and The Cosby show, He has 3 projects listed on IMDB already. He'll always be a side character, but will always probably have work because he is good at what he does. Josh McDermitt and Christian Serratos will probably wont be in much else outside of cameos. JDM obviously will always have work and is the most established to come on the show since Norman Reedus. Hes just a solid actor and has the look of a big star. He was in Ramapge Steven Ogg will always be typecast as a perpetual shitbag, because damn, he is good at it. His work as Simon was excellent, he's also a host in Westworld and was Trevor in GTA V. Obviously Jon Bernthol found his role as the Punisher. I can see him picking up a few more lead roles here and there. David Morrissey is an outstanding actor but will probably always be on British TV only. Michael Rooker is always going to have work because of his unique voice. Whether it be voice acting, or a villain role. He was great in Guardians of the Galaxy. But all those other characters like T-Dog, we'll never see them again. Emily Kinney does her music thing, and I wont be sad if we never see Chandler Riggs ever again.
  13. The trailer is here! Edit: It's come to my attention that everyone is freaking out about the end of the trailer. No Rick hasn't been in a coma and all of it isn't a dream. As a comic reader, I know what it is, I just can't tell you.
