  1. Nothing like knocking out all 9 Overwatch weekly wins in an hour. MMR was on my side for once.

  2. I'm more hyped than ever for Breath of the Wild after Amazon UK leaked the details that there will be 900 puzzles, 120 mini-dungeons, and 76 side quests. Zelda is one of the few games that I get into hardcore completionist mode. I put in for the week off when it arrives at my door step. XD

      Those 4 hearts that are tied behind multiplayer will be a pain in the ass to get.

      Lmao I thought you were confused when I read that. XD

  3. Started Kuromukuro on Netflix. So far its Encino Man meets Linebarrels of Iron with a dash of Aldnoah.Zero. XD Some pretty great comedy and action.

      School is as relevant as it is in Inuyasha if I had to make a comparison. :P

      I just finished this and It was probably my favorite Netflix Original. They slowly moved away from the comedy and kept it to a minimum as the story got serious. It worked well as keeping the type of comedy they used would have gotten bland with heavy usage.

      I assume Netflix Original means they merely did the dub work. Between Seven Deadly Sins, Ajin, and Kuromukuro, I'd say they did a great job so far. Although they use a lot of the same talent that Funi uses. The female lead also voices Sailor Venus/Lucy Heartfilia and the male lead also voiced Vash the Stampede. I also found some familiars in the supporting cast like Milly Ashford, Inspector Zenigata, and Lelouch Lamperouge. A lot of the supporting cast hasn't done much in Funi's circle so it's nice to hear different voices every once in a while. Not everyone is as talented as Christopher Sabat.

  4. The end of Feb through the end of March looks great for gaming to me. Nier Automata, Zelda, and Mass Effect. It been a while since there has been back to back to back games I wanted to play. 

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      About the only thing I'm looking forward to is Mass Effect (and I'm somewhat on the fence about that, I'm not letting the hype draw me in this time around like I did BF1. I'll pre-order it most likely but unlike with ME3 I won't get the CE).

      With funds still being limited I gotta pick and choose my games carefully (and while Zelda does look good I can't afford to drop $300 + whatever Zelda will cost just to play it). Nier looks good but I can't justify dropping money on another game when I still have a backlog to go through (not as terrible as Sledge's but it's still hefty and its all games that require more then 40 hours to get through (I'm looking at you Skyrim, DA, and FFX/X-2)).

      I just realized Horizon Zero Dawn is mixed in there too. X_x too much.

      Ah fuck I forgot about it as well. Shit, guess I'm going to broke for awhile

  5. Not too happy about the D.Va nerfs :/ She felt like she was in a good place. Zarya can tear her to shreds as is. That Triple Tank meta made an impact. Ana is getting a massive nerf, and Roadhog's hook can no longer pull off BS snags... although Tracer and Lucio will be almost impossible to pick off.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      If Roadhog will be able to “throw people behind you if you spin before the hook lands" that could be OP on some maps. Imagine a good roadhog troll constantly throwing people off ledges for a one hit kill. XD

      Yeah that's weird to me because it kind of breaks the line of sight rule if you turn fast and can't see them anymore. It wont be that big of a deal, because the only place you can do that is at the start of a few maps. Its already a strategy on maps you don't have to turn around on like the Well on Illios, or the temple on Napal. Its great to getting rid of the healer fast.

  6. I'm a few eps into "And you thought there is never a girl online?" Is like Haganai but a gamer's version. XD The loot box part made me chuckle when they all got let down by getting crap, along with other arguments using MMO jargon. The new influx of shows coming into Funi have been entertaining, although I've watched a few duds. Endride is probably one of their worst dubs I've seen in a long time, but I don't think the sub could fix how bad the characters were anyways. Shimoneta was pretty funny, as a lewd potty joke anime, but the ending was eh. Riddle Story of Devil was decent as well.

  7. Grimgar Fantasy and Ash, the only anime I've ever watched that punched you in the feels 4 episodes in.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Never even heard of it (another one that slipped by me), just got done reading a summary of it on Wikipedia. It actually sounds a lot like Log Horizon just in a different world and different circumstances (sounds like the main character is trapped in the world by himself with all the NPCs). I'll have to see if I can find fansubs for it as well, definitely sounds like a show I'd like.

      The memory thing is actually a major part of the story later on in Season 2 when the players actually start realizing they're loosing their memories every time they die. At first its nothing major (insignificant stuff like names of places they used to visit and what not) but as they continue to die more and more memories disappear and they start turning into mindless Thralls (which is covered in the season 2 during one of the story arcs) who can think of nothing more then dieing in combat to get back home.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I'm almost done with Overlord. Meh. It's interesting enough to finish, but the main character and all his NPCs are so OP there hasn't been any real fights or sense of danger through out the whole thing. 

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I finished it last night. If there was a season 2, I'd watch it. After doing a bit of research on the light novel, the story sounds pretty good. The pace of the light novel is going to cause issues as its not even finished yet and its been going since 2012. This first season was just a really long introduction to the story. I feel like this anime shouldn't have come out for another 5 years. I also learned that Tokyo Ghoul basically Fullmetal Alchemisted it's manga... which would explain why its so shit IMO.

      The Japanese take a totally different approach to making anime than the west does with TV shows or Movies (Minus TWD). It seems the Manga/Light Novel gets hot, and they immediately have to start making anime off of it and pump out episodes until they run out of material. Then they choose whether to make the right decision and wait, or say  "fuck this original content" and fuck it up more often than not. Also from what I understand, new season are solely based off DVD sales rather than TV raitings and advertisement revenue like here. I get most of it, but I dont get the jumping the gun so fast on these manga's. Its irritating to wait years for another season via Attack on Titan.

  8. I just finished My Hero Academia, and now I can't wait for Season 2. All Might is like Hercule that can actually back up his boasting. XDXD

     

  9. I don't know how anyone can bare to play open world PvE content with the Ele class... at least its base. I haven't unlocked tempest yet. It has no burst damage, its squishy, and its down state is ass. Highest DPS in the game... but only sustained. I can burst mobs better with every other class. Range attacks are the death of you. Doing the Jade Maw heart on Ember Bay was so frustrating, the lack of CC the class has is astonishing. I have no idea how everyone loves it. I'm sure its amazing in fractals and raids, but for casual play its a nightmare. 

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Ah, I see. That makes more sense. I can't stand thief or elementalist because the slightest lag will get you killed. I'd rather face tank everything with my necro, warrior, ranger or guardian. :D I have a mesmer but I suck with her unless I'm camping greatsword. XD

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Thief is pretty fun when you get the hang of it. I like it way more than ele because you can always escape if you're in serious danger. I just did bitterfrost completion with my ele and it was the most frustrating thing I've ever done in this game. Ele has no mobility for how squishy it is, its nearly impossible to skip mobs that can range attack. I died 3-4 times trying to get to the second POI in that starting cave, and I died about 3 more times trying to skip the mobs to get to the Svanir vista. With my Thief I could have just used Shadow Refuge, or the short bow skill 4 to skip them all easily.... or I could have fought and melted them all with psychical strikes unlike Ele's slow casting attacks. Unless the new elite spec is amazing, I'll never do WC with an Ele. The only thing I'd do with Ele is WvW because its a monster on the back line.

  10. Overwatch dethroned everyone at the VGAs sweeping Game of the Year, Best eSports, and Best Mutliplayer game. I hope everyone else takes notice. While OW isn't for everyone, and its hard for SoloQ, games that aren't need to look at what Blizzard is doing. The way they balance, interact with their community without blowing them off, and post launch content. COD started the season pass trend, and every shooter followed suit and then every game followed suit. Titanfall 2 has taken OW route as far as DLC goes. I hope more developers go this route as well. There is money to be made on micro-transactions. RnG boxes are a big hit and OK as long as you can earn them in game, and they don't offer a competitive advantage.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I partly blame piracy for the $100+ cost for full games. Sure games like battlefield are extremely fun and popular and dlc can be justified, but I often think that season passes for online games (that can't be pirated or they get banned) are primarily a way for the publishing company to make up for lost profits from offline games that were pirated instead of purchased. Whenever a game is announced with a season pass I think of it as the consumer paying a pirate subsidy to the game company. I've seen plenty of people saying EA and activision are greedy corporations with their season passes, but maybe they're making up their losses from other games. *shrug*

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      But they make all their money on console. XD PC gamers get mad that console gets all the Triple A love while hiding behind there "OMGZ PC master race 83947923748932 games for $1!!" But how many of those games are actually good? How many $1 don't just rot in a library without ever getting touched? The PC market gets treated like an afterthought now, getting shitty ports for big games. Hell they never got Red Dead Redemption.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I've seen people on my steam list over the years playing pirated console games and flaunting it by launching them with steam as if to show off that they have a console only game on pc. -_-; I remember about 8 months after Last of Us came out I saw someone on my friend list playing it on PC. I know that was a pirated version. That same year Uncharted 3 and Last of Us both got 2 multiplayer map dlcs for $10 as if Naughty Dog was trying to compensate for lost sales.

      I wont lie, I have a huge back log of games. Mostly from those $1 humble bundles. XD I stopped buying those years ago unless they are AAA game studio bundles tho.

  11. So they are making more Code Geass, and Lelouch is going to be in it? Um what? Plz Sunrise. I just watched one of the most well crafted stories with amazing closure, and now there is going to be more? I wonder how?

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I got a notification about it from myanimelist the other day. It feels like a cash grab to me at this point. It ended perfectly and now they're going to negate the best stuff from the original series by bringing people back from the dead. This is why I stopped watching Gotham. When nobody dies or they just come back to life then there is no more sense of danger or purpose.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Unless Lelouch becomes an immortal like CC and they explain it well, I don't see how it can work. But if he does and gives someone else the power of Geass, then it may be interesting. 

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That could be a good plot twist.

  12. The Black Friday noobs are out in full force. On BF1 everyone keeps unlocking and opening the doors on Monte Grappa, and on Overwatch no one can defend anything. Every round is a damn steam roll for attack because people can't defend an objective. I was winning fights I shouldn't win against hard counter characters.

    On a side note, I'm glad Sombra isn't popular. I figure it has a lot to do with her abilities don't provide DPS or heals, but if you utilize them correctly you can go anywhere undetected and put pressure on the objective to let your team through bottlenecks. Now I can contest a point, go invisible and run away, and then come back and contest it again if the opposing team goes back to the choke point. Before I would fly over with D.Va and get destroyed by a 1v6 and my team wouldn't push, with Sombra they have more time to finally pay attention because apparently a whole 6-7 seconds isn't enough to give them confidence to charge in.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      And this is exactly why I decided not to touch BF1 this week (well besides the fact that I have Skyrim to play) because I knew Black Friday would bring a rush of new, untested blood into the fray (and considering my luck I didn't want guaranteed losses, one after another (my luck in Operations has took a turn for the worse, I haven't won one in my last 10 or so)).

    2. Sledgstone

      I hate light tanks. I still want DICE to move those to flags only and take them away from the home spawn. Now that I realized the left and right d-pads actually do something in tanks (i had no idea most of my tanks had a quick repair option -_-;), heavy tanks are beastly for me now. I got in one with my brothers the other day and tore up the map for a solid 15 mins in it and capped 2 flags. It was a bit boring for them tho with the limited angles the passenger turrets have.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I should have recorded my 10 kill streak in the breakthrough tank. The driver pulled. Me up to the door at our favorite A flag on Monte Grappa. There were like 5 medics that kept reviving each other and I kept mowing them down with the side cannon. XD

  13. I logged into BF1 today for the first time in 3 days and I had a Superior and Regular R5 battlepack waiting on me. I have no idea where they came from. I got the gold skin for the 12g automatic, but I scrapped it. R6 is pretty lame this week, I'll keep saving my scrap.... I'm waiting on a Legendary Martini skin.

      I got on today for an hour and I did get a regular battlepack. I got a white and an xp boost that I immediately scrapped for 270. Maybe DICE was being generous with that free battlepack for non premium.

  15. Revision 5 has some nice legendary pistol skins.  I blew 1800 scrap to get the automatico twice. -_-; I'm probably going to just save up for a week they have a legendary Frommer Stop and Martini-Henry. 

  16. Infinite Warfare sales are down 50% from Blops 3. Blops 3 didn't outsell 1 or 2. Finally the tide has turned. Activision is blaming no old gen, but BF1 outsold BF4 and Hardline combined. 

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Overwatch probably took a nice chunk, but I think its more of every game took a piece of the pie. Overwatch is a completely different beast than the causal nature of COD. In COD, one person can win the whole match for their team, in Overwatch that's impossible. Overwatch probably took a lot of TF2 players as its more that type of game. There is a lot of strategy involved, unlike COD where its all about having the best twitch reflexes and exploiting spawns.

      The thing that has always struck me about COD is player's lack of map awareness. My success in that series was predicated on that. I often used map routes that no one bothered traveling. After all, no action took place there, so it was a "boring" part of the map. Using those paths, I'd easily get the flank and demolish the enemy team, and they'd never discover what I was doing. My favorite example of this was a map on COD4 called Pipeline. It took place in an abandoned oil refinery. The map was your standard 3 building map with a rail way, and some cement tubes and metal sheet fencing. There was also a network of tunnels under the map that had 3 access points. One access point was in the middle of one of the warehouses. Even so, no one ever used the tunnels. In hundreds of matches, I only ever saw someone else down there maybe 3 times. For me, It was a quick way to get to the opposite side of the map and come up behind the enemy, and then quickly escape. I used this tactic on the map forever and I still talk about it with the friends I played that game with to this day. It was so effective that I replicated it on several other maps that had a similar design. (Highrise on MW2 comes to mind). Everyone wants to run to the center of the map and shoot at each other with no tactics in mind. In OW, you have to know the map, where the health packs are, and where to go to flank, and chances are you'll have to fight you way through a path to get to where you want to go. :P

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Titanfall most likely got the biggest share of the COD pie since it plays almost exactly like COD just with more vertical movement. Halo probably ate up what was left. BF gets it's fair share of COD players but most don't stick around long enough to learn the game.

      R6S is not a game COD fans would play and I state this because COD fans would never understand the basic premise of the game. It took me awhile to learn R6S and how to play it effectively. Much like Overwatch map knowledge is key to victory. Knowing entry points, where to flank, what areas of the map can be used to hold the hostage/bio-container/bombs, how to enter those rooms effectively, where camera's are located, what walls can be destroyed, and even the smallest of details. Operator knowledge is also key as you need to know what operators do what, how effectively they work with other operators, how to counter each of the operators abilities (like Mute's jammer, Valkyrie's camera's, Kapkan's trip bombs, Thermite's thermite charges, etc), what weapons the operators use and which one is more effective for the map you're on, etc. R6S is pretty much Counter-Strike with a twist and most COD players I know can't even grasp how to play CS effectively.

      God I miss COD4, it was the only time I've ever been extremely good at an FPS (I'm good at BF but I'm nowhere as good at it as I was at COD4). Maps like Pipeline made it amazing. I used to camp that tunnel with my Ghost layout when I played Search and Destroy (as defense) since one of the containers was located right next to it. You don't know how many times I've wiped a whole team by doing it. Hell I used to run that path during TDM all the time since, as you said, it was rarely ever used. Most of my epic flanks are due to that tunnel. Shit my ability to go ham with the shotgun on Bog was due to my extensive knowledge of the map and how to effectively move through it (and what corners to camp, what I was a corner camper and I'm proud of it. I had the pro perk and everything (mine even had smores)). People in COD now-a-days don't want to learn the maps because all the fighting takes place in one area. Why flank when you can get right into the action and lose the battle for you're team (thank you COD for your shit players coming to BF1, it's no wonder why a lot of operations matches end in the first sector).

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I loved all the maps because they all had a different style of play. Countdown was so open and vast, there was no camping outside of the two hangars. The smoke provided cover at times, but it you could go nuts with the M16, which was so OP if you had good aim. XD 1-2 burst kill from across the map with stopping power, snipers never had a chance. Downpour had so many great routes too.... and then Wetwork was the meatgrinder map. The Operation Locker/Metro of COD. If you aren't using 3 frags, you're doing it wrong. XD I miss my MP5 silenced.

  17. I got Blue Devil for the SL Sweeper today.. so yeah I got every legendary skin this week without buying a battlepack. I just wish they weren't all damn jungle camo. Blue Devil looks the same as The Riot for the Model 10, The Mexican for the Mondragon, and the one for the Madsen... The Doughboy for the BAR was the only one that was unique.... and the one I have for the M1912. (Damn that pistol is shit XD)

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'm starting to wonder if some of the blue skins are actually a more uncommon drop than the legendaries. I say that because I see equal amounts of legendary skins as I do blue ones on my death screens.

  18. I'm about half way through Code Geass. I see where Aldnoah.Zero borrowed a lot of inspiration from. XD

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Yeah Funi doesn't divide them up by season. It was just a Playlist of 50+ eps. The only thing I didn't like was they never explained CC and VV's origins. The whole be the villian to secretly be the hero was awesome. The most gut wrenching part was Euphemia's death. 

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Code geass is one of the best animes made in a long time. I don't know if CC or VV were explained in the OVAs or not because I haven't seen them yet. There's 4 ova but I never looked up the plots.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Funi is hit and miss about OVAs. sometimes they have them and sometimes they don't. I don't think they have any of the Fairy Tail OVAs. Plus when they do have them they list them all at the end. I don't know if some of these OVAs come out during the series or they all come out after but many times it has characters that died or had some plot twist that made them the villain, so its weird to watch something that reverted back to a time before the event.

  19. I had a pretty productive night on BF1. Got a triple kill with a tank grenade, my 4th service star for the Model 10, and 4 battlepacks (1 from premium and then 3 matches in a row). I got 3 blues out of it putting me at 840 scrap. I just need another blue or two more battlepacks to be ready for Revision 3. Last time I got 4 in a row, I didn't get another one for like 10 matches.

      Ah, maybe thats my main problem. I've been using the cross hair sights on the lewis suppressive and for some reason I keep overcompensating when people are running. That and the bouncing of the gun is aggravating to me. I'd shoot it in bursts but that actually gives me less control. And then if I keep the gun shooting for better accuracy it overheats. These lmgs are so shit in this game. -_-; If I could equip a shotgun or smg on this class i'd never touch the lmgs again.

  20. I got my Cinch Gaming controller today. Its really nice. I'm impressed that the grip isn't some added rubber overlay like I thought it would be, Its actually the plastic on the controller. Its a different material, clearly 3D printed soft plastic. The custom buttons are nice, I guess I hold my controller a bit wonky and never realized it. I can hit the melee button easily, but the jump button is awkward to me with how I rest my hand on the controller. I'll get use to it. The Xbox sticks are a big improvement.

      Right after you buy a custom controller, Sony announces 2 3rd party licenced esports controllers. XD

  21. Facebook's trending feed is such garbage. If you see a topic you're interested its clickbait 99% of the time.

  22. Finished up GARO before my impending BF1 binge. I didn't realize there was an actual live action show, until I looked it up because I thought it was odd it was listed as GARO: The Animation. Anyways, it was enjoyable overall. I've seen the premise used a few times before, but the fights were bad ass. Its one of the few Hybrid-CGI looking anime that I feel worked well. I'll always prefer the classic style, but CGI effects become more popular as time goes on, probably because it's cheaper to produce.

  23. My position with the company was cut last week. Even though they deny it's the reason... I was salary, and starting 12/1/2016 federal law will require companies to pay salary a minimum of over $10,000 more a year than I was making or pay overtime for hours worked over 40. My company responded to this by removing the position I was in which affected 700 managers company wide. I'm now hourly making $5000 less a year because I'm only working 40 hours a week. Just goes to prove you can't force companies to pay people more money. Now each store runs on one less manager and the burden of my workload falls on them. On the bright side I have more time to myself and I'll be gaming on more regular hours instead of insane late night. XD

    1. DeathscytheX

      I know just about every company is waiting and hoping that congress will somehow magically stop it, but from what I've read, they don't have the votes to do it. So everyone is going to wait til the end of next month to say "Merry Christmas, you got fucked".

      One of my co-workers husband is salary because he works for a pool repair company... obviously salary helps him in the winter time when no one is swimming and they have a lot less work to perform. Going hourly would be devastating.

      Wal-mart actually increased all salary employee's wages months ago in anticipation of the raise. I know someone thats already got a huge raise. But I think the company will be taking that extra money out of new employees and less salary staff overall. I bet initial raises will be crap for years to compensate for the new pay structure. I don't know who all is salary at my company and I haven't heard anything about how it'll affect those people.

      Heh, raises are already shitty at Wal-Mart so they can't get any worse (you're lucky if you get a 40 cent raise every year and before I quit they changed it to percentage based based on your yearly performance which lowered it significantly).

      In his case that would completely suck, going hourly would be beyond devastating.

  24. In a move of douchebaggery that should surprise no one,  you must have the Infinite Warfare disc for MWR to work. That's how desperate they are to make you keep their pile of shit in hopes that you'll play it and spend money on supply drops. Fuck you Activision.

      130 GB install for both games. O_O Probably because of PS4 Pro, all games coming out will be much bigger because of 4k support. I bet BF1 with all DLC and patches will be at least 250 GB within 8 months of it's release.

      It will probably reach 200gigs at its max. Which is still a lot.  I want to say BF4 was 110-120gb with all dlc when I removed it.

      Pfft, I told you but you all scoffed at me when I said it. Activision is nothing but a conglomerate of greedy ass motherfuckers that want you to buy a game you don't want to get one you do and require you to use the disc of that game to play the one you want. This pretty much guarantees no stand alone release of MWR.

      The disc requirement is only because it's not a DLC, it's a full game so that's why it's justified (in their opinion). Same can be said about the digital version as well. Honestly I expect this to happen more and more when publishers remake a game and bundle it with another because lets face it a lot of games coming out these days suck and the only way to sell them is with a gimmick like this.

      BF4 + all DLC (free and paid with Premium) comes to a total of 70.47 gigs (I'm looking at my storage right now so that's exact). It's not surprising both games will sit at 130 gigs. You're probably looking at close to 70-80 gigs for IW (or more, who knows) and 50-60 gigs for MWR (it's a remaster so the new textures and models will take up a lot of room), give or take a few gigs. So by the end of IW's lifetime you're probably looking at close to 200 like DX said since you can expect at least 4-5 map packs.

  25. Finished World Completion on my thief. It was a more bearable slow process of doing a map a day here and there, rather than hardcoring it. I'll probably do my Engi next because she's around 30%. I doubt I'll ever do full MC on HoT, but I have been doing them on the LS maps. Hoping someone can help on HP for the HoT maps is just too discouraging. Its easy enough to get enough of them done solo or with the help of 1 random for an elite spec, but others are much harder to find help for, even HP trains avoid them.

      The HPs in HoT are bullshit IMO. Map completion should be accomplishable solo. I thought they were going to change that over 6 months ago but they never did. Especially the hero points that are in the middle of nowhere that requires masteries to even get to, with a champ event tied to it. wtf. I've been playing these maps alot more over the last month and I still have no idea how to actually get to the Guano HP in Verdant Brink without looking at a youtube video. Even if someone says in map chat "doing guano hp, help please?" by the time I get there that person has either died and can't figure out how to get back up, the night time event finished and its not possible to get there without additional masteries that person might not have unlocked, or they got so frustrated they left the area. The new LS maps are great and has given me encouragement that anet is going down a different path of game design.. because if the newer maps were anything like the HoT maps I wouldn't even play them. I don't know what the new expansion will be like but I highly doubt I'll pre-order it until I find out if the maps are actually going to fun or just frustrating as all hell with 4 contested waypoints again with everything tied off behind masteries and more mastery points that are only obtainable by having pre-existing masteries. I really like Ember Bay, you can go everywhere but if you have the lava tube mastery you can get there faster. Enjoyable content without frustration and a nice convenience boost once you get the mastery. Unlike HoT maps that block you off everywhere you go. With my casual playing of it, a year later I finally have enough HoT masteries done that I can finally attempt map completion of those maps.. a year later. wtf.
