  1. Logged into Origin for the BF4 beta and was given Battlefield 1942 for free in celebration of BF4.

    1. Sledgstone

      I just checked Origin and I forgot I already had Battlefield 1942. lol. They gave it away sometime earlier this year as a 10 year celebration or something.

  2. Picked up Renegade Ops on Steam. 75% off at $3.75. A little retro fun from SEGA with a cheesy 90s style, overly cliche story to go with it.

      I've been seeing that much more frequently. Shank was like that too if I remember correctly. and A.R.E.S. is unplayable without a twin stick controller. I tried to play it with a mouse and keyboard and it was beyond frustrating.

    2. DeathscytheX

      Shank 1 came out for 360 first I believe. :P

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Well that would explain that. :P

  3. Started playing Darksiders from a humble bundle a while back.. its alright... combat is lacking big time, and the camera controls are terrible.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I really like the story. That much I can say. I'm not against simplistic game play on the cheap. This take on the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse is pretty neat as it delves on complete shades of grey. If this game lasts more than 15 hours I'll call it a bargain... the empty slots suggest there is a lot to be completed, but I'm glad I didn't pay $60 for this game.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Ok, so it took it a bit, but now there is some serious platform puzzles going on. Pretty neat.

  4. Almost bought TMNT on steam, but then I saw on the forums that the multiplayer is busted.. glad I checked. I'll wait for a patch.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I figure I'll wait until the thanksgiving / christmas sale. I'm sure it'll be patched by then and on sale for a few bucks off.

  5. 10 episodes into Welcome to the NHK I find this series to be hysterical. Immature humor FTW.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Freaking awesome show, loved every minute of it. Eppy suggested it a few years back and I'm glad I took his advice. Tis a very fun ride.

  6. Finally got my hands on Issue #1 of The Star Wars. Very interesting. Cant wait for Issue #2!

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I'll have them all* I've preordered them to come in the protective sleeve for a mere 25 cents more. ;)

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Not bad. I just remembered that episode of simpsons where bart and his 2 friends had Radioactive Man issue 1.. they didn't want the oils from their hands to touch the paper so they used tweezers to turn the pages. XD

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      XD LOL I remember that.

  7. I enjoyed Vampire Bund, Now I'm watching Mushi-Shi.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Good choice, with the Mushi-Shi I mean. Such a wonderful show, I really need to watch it again.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I'm really liking this. Its kinda like xxxHolic without the comedy aspect.

    3. Pchan

      Pchan

      You guys need to check out anything from Milky Productions.

  8. Watching Dance on the Vampire Bund because it seems to be the only Anime on netflix that I haven't watch that is available in HD.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Gurren Lagann has been gone almost a year now XD. I wanted to watch it but by the time I got around to it, it was gone. Naruto and Inuyasha didn't have the dubs and Naruto was in 4:3 as well. They just removed a good chuck this past month. Corpse Princess is gone :(.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      They've also have anime where they only have the second season, and took the 1st down when they got it like Spice and Wolf. Um WTF? How can I want to watch that If I haven't seen season one?

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats a shame.. If you ever see Gurren Lagann on there again, watch it ASAP before it disappears again. :P That series is beyond epic. :D

  9. Netflix added Trigun: Badlands Rumble! I just watched it and loved it!

    1. Dubird

      Dubird

      You know, I didn't really care much for the movie. It was very.....generic. I figured out the plot within the first 10 minutes, and that's not a good thing.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Meh, I had it figured out in 10 minutes as well but I enjoyed it for what it was, another reason to see Vash act like a goofball. I wasn't expecting anything groundbreaking with it (though I would go for a redo of the series that follows the actual manga).

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Yeah It made me laugh. I guess I miss me some Trigun. It was nice to see the gang back together.

  10. Wow WTF. Steam Online is down and so is the website.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      It happens more frequently than they acknowledge. I've seen their site go down twice now over the past year.

      http://www.giantbomb.com/steam/3015-718/forums/steam-servers-down-worldwide-535565/

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      It wasnt down for long, but still it had me wondering if HL3 was announced XD. The web store said it was too heavily burdened.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lmao! If they ever announced HL3, their servers probably would go down from over 5 million people loading the website at the exact same time. XD

  11. Watching Ghost Hunt, I've never seen a paranormal investigation anime. I'm liking it so far.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I still thing Colleen Clinkenbeard and Michelle Ruff need to be hired for Sailor Moon's potential Funi Dub. Uranus and Pluto would be the likely candidates. IMO. :P

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Ugh, The only issue I have with this anime is that cases take between 2-4 episodes. Its an interesting structure, but I like to watch a whole case through, So I know if I don't have 1-2 hours to watch (because I gotta be at work early in the morn), I just don't. I'm on the last case and its a 4 episode one. :P

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      It sounds good that the show does cases.. its easier to watch chunks of a couple episodes at a time.. unlike One Piece.. Entire arcs last 45 episodes. XD

  12. Started playing Diablo III again. I forgot how far I made it with Demon Hunter and holy crap is she more overpowered than I remember.

  13. Finished Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase. Started out weak, finished strong. The epilogue of the epilogue episode WTF XD

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      So what your saying is that I should give it a go? I've been debating about watching it for awhile but just didn't know if it was worth it.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I liked it. I wouldn't rank it as one of my tops, but I found it enjoyable. It was worth my time. It starts out as a mix of light humor and drama with a sprinkle of action, the action increases as the story progresses. Very little if anything that can be considered fan service.

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Hmmm, I'll have to give it a shot then when I wittle my backed up anime pile down a bit more (it's a massive pile)

  14. Netflix put up Fairy Tail, but only the 1st season... I think I'll wait on that.

    1. Pchan

      Pchan

      You guys have waaay too much time to waste on this sort of stuff haha!

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I ran out of anime to watch so I started it. Natsu is voiced by the same guy that did Kyoji (Baka + Test), Layfon (Chrome Shelled Regios), Hayato (Sekirei), Android 19 (DBZ), Ling (FMA: Brotherhood), Apos (RIN: Daughters of Mnemosyne), Naru (Ghost Hunt), Watanuki (xxxHolic), and Nagasumi (My Bride is a Mermaid) Dude gets around, Andriod 19 is the only time he sounded different. lol

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      hahaha. Try switching it over to japanese and you'll hear how drastically different their voices are. XD Sometimes I like to switch the audio back and forth just to hear the vocal pitch differences. Sometimes a high or low pitched voice fits certain character types, but a lot of english VAs seem to only have those larger pitch changes when a character is a huge guy or if someone is a weaker character.

  15. I completed Sith Warrior on SWTOR... epic.

    1. Dubird

      Dubird

      I'm so far behind in that game. Lack of money means I'm on the free to play, which isn't that bad, but my smuggler feels kinda stuck. ><

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      The only negative thing I can say is that the final boss was relatively normal in difficulty. I only met 3 bosses that handed my ass to me.

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Play an Inquisitor then, you'll get your ass handed to you more then that. Man I really need to get back on this and finish my characters. Damn you internet and damn you STO for sucking up my free time.

  16. Watching xxxHolic and really enjoying despite the first 2 eps being meh. I love how EVERY anime uses the same stock cicada/cricket/bird chirp background noise.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I hate that background noise. XD

  17. Watching Baka and Test... Hilarious XD

  18. Umm what? Don't waste your time with Burst Angel. They wait until the last 8 eps to give character background, the last 4 for some type of plot, the "grand finale" happens in the last 8 minutes, and the ending makes no logical sense. Had potential and fell very short.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Yeah, if it does't have adult themes its a damn vampire anime. I'm really getting tired of those. I've just about run out of things on Netflix to watch that aren't vampire animes, I've been avoiding them because I'm so worn out on it.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That new Sailor Moon needs to hurry up and stop getting delayed! :P

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Only if Venus Crescent Beam is the new Tri-beam cannon, and Love and Beauty Shock is the Big Bang Attack. XD

  19. As much as I love SWTOR, I wish other characters were worth a damn outside Quinn... those heals make him better than anyone else. I try to use Jaesa when I can.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      That's the problem with every character's companions, the healer is usually the best (which is sad really). Plus Warriors are in the forefront with no healing abilities so you kinda gimp yourself if you don't use Quinn. The exception to this is Andronikos on the Assassin. Since I'm tanked specced and have built in healing abilities I only need a dps companion. Makes quest grinding go a lot faster.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Jaesa is amazing in combat, and I like to use her because I spent so many hours to get her. But when those walking elite's sneak up on me when I'm battling 3-5 regulars, It hurts with no heals as Sith Warrior. Quinn is shit as a fighter.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      If it wasn't for Force Charge he'd die on me more than usual. I wish I had Jaesa during the sand demon fight. lol

  20. Finally Netflix got Eden of the East's second movie... I dont know why they stopped making episodes and made "long episodes" that pose as films... great series. More of an intellectual drama than anything else.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      X'D Oh come on you know you liked it. The original op is so much better. Falling Down by Oasis fit the show so well

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I'm not denying it was a catchy tune.... but once install into the brain, it becomes torture! lol

  21. Chobits! Not what I expected, but I stuck with it until the end. Super adorable... the end almost pissed me off... The "review" episodes were unnecessary... but I liked it overall.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      The manga is so much better but I thoroughly enjoyed the anime. Been forever since I last watched it though (should probably dig out the DVD's again and give it a watch through)

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I'm trying to watch Burst Angel now, but I'm not really feeling it right now... it it worth continuing after 3 eps?

  22. Preordered inFAMOUS: Second Son, Need for Speed: Rivals, Watchdogs, Destiny, and Battlefield 4 today! w00t w00t. I'm console free until the PS4 release.

    1. Sledgstone

      I finally saw a Nerf in SWTOR... its just a glorified Bantha XD... BANTHA FODDER!!!

  23. Finally got my hands on TWD Vol. 17 and 18!

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Nice! Those are the most recent volumes right? You'll be completely caught up. What about the issues being released after 18, will you keep up with those or wait for Volume 19?

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I'll only read Volumes... I blew through both of those within an hour and I'm already feigning for more. Issues would be too small for me. :P

  24. Going to see Pacific Rim tonight!

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Lucky! I hope its good. :D

  25. 7 Episodes into Angel Beats... its so f*cked up and sad, but insanely hilarious at the same time.
