  1. Crystal Pepsi is coming back in the next few weeks. I was 9 years old when it came out and I can't even remember what it tasted like. XD I look forward to trying it again.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Oh man. I loved that drink. I'll definitely buy some. All these years later it'll probably disgust me and ruin all those fond memories. XD

      I'd say I was excited since I used to drink a lot of it as a kid but I don't drink pop anymore >. < I might have to buy some just to see if it tastes
       the same.

  2. Finished Fafner. It felt like an Evangelion wannabe with an ending similar to Eureka 7. I really wanted to like it, but it was just "ok" really. The only interesting thing about the series was how many pilots died throughout it, and how many mechas were lost. They didn't go hand and hand though. Some of the mechas were piloted by multiple people, while some were lost with their pilots. What was most unrealistic to me was how they all lived in isolation on an island, but seemly had unlimited resources to restock their defenses and repair mechas that lost limbs. XD I'll watch the movie later to see if it redeems the series in anyway for me.

      I thought it was a great show, then again I did watch it back when it aired 12 years ago and haven't watched it since. There were a lot of things I wished they'd of elaborated on while I watched it but it was pretty entertaining overall. There was nothing to salvage after battles Sledge, the enemies weren't human nor did they pilot mechs (they're called Festum and are created by the Mir, what they exactly are is hard to explain) and yes it does take place mostly on the island (some eps take place outside of the island but the majority of it pertains to the islands defenses).

      I have yet to watch Heaven and Earth, it's been on my watch list forever and it's buried somewhere on my passport. You'll have to let me know how it is when you watch it. Right of Left was pretty damn good (prequel OVA). I also need to get around to watching Exodus as well but that'll have to wait till after I watch the movie (as it takes place two years after Heaven and Earth).

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Yeah the Festum and Mir could have used more depth instead of everyone sulking about Shoko. I guess I didn't care too much for the characters. I didn't really understand the whole Soshi's eye thing, maybe I missed it looking at my phone, but they seemed to refer to it a lot without explaining what actually happened. The main character leaving with the Neo-UN defector seemed half assed, and his quasi-assimilation seemed cheap since he got all fixed up by info given to them by a Festum. It wasn't a bad show. I just wanted more I guess.

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      I don't even think they go into more depth in the movie or the 2nd series but that was my major problem with the series. The creators dropped the ball on explaining what these beings were (outside of servants of the Mir, who also didn't get any explanation). It's been so long I don't even remember anything about what happened to Soshi (I think he was merging with the system he used to help the pilots, I don't know).

      When it aired it was a good show, now maybe not so much. I should probably give it a rewatch to see if it holds up in my book, I've become quite the anime snob in recent years.

  3. Dropped a ton of cash on a Daniel Defense DDM4V11. Figured I'd go ahead and take the hit before the assault weapon ban talk gets hot or some other ass hat decides to go shoot people.

  4. I played defense on Volskaya Industries with everyone being Bastion. XD OMG we dominated so hard the whole other team left the lobby after the match. XD

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Only one guy was Genji, no Widowmakers, they had a Zenyatta, soldier 76, reaper, and Roadhog. There might have been dupes because those are the only heroes I saw on the other team. It only worked because it was on Volskaya. That B point is too advantageous to bunker down in.

  5. Finished Yona of the Dawn. I really hope they make a season 2. The story was really good, and leaves so many questions to be answered. the animation was stunningly beautiful too.

  6. I wonder if COD is gonna put out any pre E3 hype like a lot of companies have done the last 2-3 days. They're gonna get overshadowed by BF1 and they might even get boo'ed off the stage. XD

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      They'll try but they'll fail since everyone will be more interested in BF1 and EA Play (which takes place before E3).

      I'll be watching the live footage if I remember to watch it for the BF1 64 player battle and watching all the videos Jack, Level, Matimi0, and XFactor put out for it (and possible Neebs as well).

  7. I finisned Aldnoah.Zero on Netflix. It was def one of the better mecha anime I've seen in a while. Serious plot, good political drama, awesome mecha design, and great action every episode. The emotionless child prodigy was a turnoff are first, but the supporting cast made it work. 

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I finished season 1 tonight. I thought the ending was perfect. Then season 2 started and negated it all. wtf. >_< I'll finish season 2 this upcoming week. I hate emotionless child prodigies. If not for the lack of a female character preaching about pacifisim, this show could have been called "Gundam: Aldnoah.Zero" :P

      Spoiler

      The Vers could have owned the earth so easily. But instead of fighting with a big army or at least with a squad, all their OP knights decided to be 1 many armies. I thought after the first couple died, they'd have wised up and grab some support troops, but nope.. they just keep falling like dominoes.

      The Vers empire doesn't make sense to me. If the power to initiate the power source could be transferred with a kiss and was tied to their genetic structure, the knights could have overthrown the emperor, force them to activate everything they need and keep him and his family in jail cells or restricted restraints to prevent them from killing themselves and thus deactivating the tech. There was no need for an actual cast system in their society as far as I can tell. Same with this little wheel chair girl in season 2. The Vers Empire's selective breeding of this power is probably why all these knights died against one kid prodigy / vulcan that had nothing more than an education and logic on his side. Since they were born into their privilege they didn't care about actual battle tactics or common sense like bringing support troops to a fight.

      Same with the princess. She is the typical weak character that is only important because she simply exists, acts as a plot device in only 1 or 2 key moments and is only important because of her parents, much like Eureka in Eureka 7 and Elizabeth Liones from Seven Deadly Sins.

      I did like the battles in this. One of the things that really separate this from a gundam series is the lack of repeat fighting. At least for the first season. If this was gundam, everyone would fight, get more pissed at each other, then escape and go their separate ways, get some new suit upgrade, rinse and repeat. But with Aldnoah.Zero, they kill people and the plot progresses. Yay. :D The plot came together good in the end of season 1 and season 2 was just about to do some space battles right before I shut it off. Looks promising so far.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Yeah, season 2 gets a lot better as it goes on. So do the battles. The whole feudal system makes the vers interesting.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I finished this up yesterday. It definitely got better in season 2.

      Spoiler

      I liked the other characters, like the PTSD guy, but no character got a hero moment in the entire series because Inaho was involved in every single enemy death. Just when I think one of the other characters was going to shine, Inaho intervened by shooting the enemy from space even tho he wasn't involved with the fight at all. Ruined that fight for me. lol. I'd have rather seen some good guys die as long as I could have seen a single fight that didn't involve Inaho.

      Inaho's eyeball was so powerful he could watch a battle in space while standing on the earth's surface. He basically had a satellite with an AI system in his head. His eyeball was the most advanced technology they had compared to Vers' mars tech. They could have put that AI and vision system into all their mechs for a huge advantage.

      A main character with a special left eye and a feudal system setting made the second season feel a bit too much like Code Geass. Even Slaine with his dodging ability in his mech was pretty much the same ability of that other guy in Code Geass.

      I didn't like Inaho. XD

  8. Finished Linebarrels of Iron. It was an enjoyable Mecha anime. Although I feel the trend of a main character tapping into a incredible power, only to look weak in a fight unless they have an emotionally traumatic moment is getting old. It seems to be the most overused cliche in all of anime.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thanks for the heads up about the Eureka Seven AO. I'll pass on that. I watched The Legend of Legendary Heroes, but I can't remember the ending, except that the last 4 or 5 episodes turned into disappointment. I've heard good things about One Punch Man. I looked at some of the manga and everyone appears to be adults and theres a bunch of DBZ style action and even some gore. I think I'll watch this one next.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      One Punch Man is a parody I believe. The main character is so OP he's constantly bored. You don't remember the ending for LoLH because there wasn't one. -_-; it ended with the massive legion matching to battle and that was it. I just started Gangsta and so far it's good.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Oh that must be it. lol. I'm pretty certain One Punch man is a parody, but the fights that hes not in is what apparently makes the anime good. His side kick guy is some cyberneticaly enhanced bad ass that has amazing fights. Same with a bunch of other fighters, but theres no real tension in the series because that One Punch Man literally just kills everyone in 1 hit. Its the main reason I've avoided it, but after looking at a couple manga chapters, its really got my attention now.

  9. Since I used my last Citizen Eco-Drive for 12-13 years before the band broke and I left it in the dark for too long, I ordered myself another one. Got a killer deal off jomashop.com. the watch is $725 MSRP and I paid $349. Considering amazon had it listed for $540 I feel I got an unreal price for a titanium timepeice.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      This is the one i picked up. I love Citizen watches. They look better than Rolex and Omegas IMO. But they dont cost $5-45k XD I couldn't pay that much for a watch even if I was rich. Sure they last forever because they don't need batteries, but a spring or gear can still break or wear and its probably ungodly to get fixed since automatic watches are such a dying art. Citizen is solar powered and as long as you don't do what I did, they'll last a good 25 years until the cell needs to be replaced. Plus this one has a sapphire crystal so the lens shouldn't get all beat up like my old one did.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats a damn nice watch. I had a coworker that loved his Rolex. I just don't see the appeal in wearing $5k minimum on your wrist, that basically advertises yourself as a target for thieves. Some ppl like my old coworker see it as a display of wealth and personal achievement. To each their own I guess. A watch like the one you got is great tho. If you're going to get a watch, get a good one. As for me, I just pull out my phone to see the time. XD I used to wear watches way back in the day, but I'll probably never wear one again. I type way too much every day and the watch bands shred up my keyboard wrist cushions and aggravate my wrist after 8 hours of pressure.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I watched a video on Rolex the other night and they aren't even hand made outside of placing the logo inside the face. They are mass produced by machines and really only seem to be valued on their heritage and the fact that they make everything in house. I looked through a bunch of models just for fun and they all seem rather bland... I guess because of their old fashion nature. I'm a feature driven person and it seems you can get more features in a watch in the $200-700 range. One's that are truly handmade are astronomical. I see some on Jomashop for $400k+. With how bad my S6 battery life is, I figured a new timepiece will alleviate some of the strain... plus titanium is super light so I'm excited to see how it feels for being such a large face watch.

  10. The new overtime law takes effect 12/1/16. It would require my company to give many of us  $10k raises. I highly doubt that will happen. They'll probably make us all hourly instead. 

    https://www.google.com/amp/khon2.com/2016/05/17/new-rule-expands-overtime-pay-to-millions-of-salaried-workers/amp/#

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Wages seem all out of whack to me now. I have a strong feeling that the more people are going to get paid, the less amount of coworkers they'll have to share the work load with. Sure higher pay generally equals more work, but when it takes away all your free time or you have to do double the work and not get double pay, its complete BS. In the same sense, I think about the $15 an hour minimum wage for fast food workers starting in NY. I wouldn't be surprised if most of those fast food places start running on skeleton crews soon. I've already seen articles show casing new "order your own food here kiosks" at fast food places. Thats one less employee.. and other articles about how the person taking your order at a drive thru can be outsourced to another country like customer service is for many companies. Some person in Indonesia will take your order and input it in the system because McDonalds can pay that guy $2 an hour and eliminate another $15 an hour job. All stores that have salary management are either going to have some less managers or have to change their pay structure to make the money come from somewhere. Of course the money has to come out of the employees somehow, because the CEOs with their multi million dollar jobs will never take a pay cut. And the profit paid out to stock holders will never get decreased.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Interesting changes, I heard a little about this yesterday with the Wendy's Kiosk thing they're rolling out. While I feel it's a good change because lets face it, low-end salaried managers get the hose when it comes to working hours. I know while I was still working at Wal-Mart most Assistant Managers pulled up to or even more then 70 hours a week and were only paid for 50 (most of them making below or right at this base line of $47k) this will have sweeping repercussions once implemented. Wal-Mart will most likely do away with their profit-sharing program to cover the costs (if they don't fuck their salaried managers) which means the hourly workers won't get that nice little bonus every 3 months if they make profit (it's a weird program honestly, I never fully understood it but I never complained about the extra $300-$500 it put on my check when it paid out). They'll probably cut down on their already bloated management staff as well (at the Wal-Mart I used to work at (and probably work at again if they hire me back) they have 4 Co-Managers and at least 16 Assistant Managers (you could easily cut that to 2 Co's and half as many Assistants)). How other businesses will handle this is up in the air but I'm pretty sure that's what Wal-Mart would do (I mean they already run their stores with the bare minimum employees needed). Sadly Wal-Mart's pay increase in my area was pretty shitty. My friends say they received a 2% raise when this all went into effect but then again they are some of the best paid hourly employees in the company (when I left I was making $17.80 an hour after 4 years (4 normal raises) and 6 cost of living raises and other minor increases, my friend is currently making $18.12 an hour. They're lucky also because when the company dropped starting wages they rolled all that money into their base wages so they wouldn't loose it). Not so much anymore as I've heard the starting wages dropped to $12 an hour for days and I believe $14 an hour for nights (down from $15 and $17 respectively, this is due to the oil boom in the Bakken dropping off drastically). This is still more then the national average for Wal-Mart employees but it's a general idea of what at least one Wal-Mart is paying.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      That's exactly right. A lot of people don't understand that $15 min wage is bad. These are entry level jobs that kids should be doing, not a way of life. Now it's gonna be harder for young people to get their first work experience because no one is going to want to hire a kid for a hugh wage. If everyone could live comfortably making French fries then you'd have less people willing to work for a more skilled occupation that's a value to society. Human drive is why socialism doesn't work and never will. Star Trek economics will never happen. As for the OT rules, yeah if they increase my wage I see longer hours and less help in the future.

  11. I miss playing Overwatch :/. I didn't think I'd have this type of withdraws. I can't wait to relax on my vacation and play. :D

      Poor, poor DX XD I can't lie I kinda miss playing it too. Thankfully I have new Rainbow 6 DLC to play to keep me distracted.

      That was a solid beta and it was a fun game. I wish I had more time to try every character out thoroughly.

  12. Trying to finish my dailies, I hop on to WvW and see a fellow JQer getting 4v1ed on a camp site. He was just trying to get his daily like me. I mark/well bombed the group and RS4ed into them taking them all down. Daily accomplished. XD #ReaperLife

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Nice. XD Are you using your pve power reaper build? Or a variant of it? I might swap my reaper to a fear build just to troll. I started doing more WvW dailies to. I'm glad it's getting more popular. Last night at reset the EB map had a queue of 49. Btw master of monuments daily is bugged. I claimed a ruin the other day and didn't get the daily.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I stick with the power build. I destroyed a MM Necro the other day that wanted to chase me down. I'd say spamming all your staff attacks and entering shroud works just as good in WvW as it does in PvP. Most the time people will just retreat. I've won a few 2v1 and 3v1s trying to get back to the zerg. It's always fun to rally off a neutral animal when you get downed only to clean up the guys you have low on health. XD

  13. With dailies, and my wood node run, I'm neting a cool 5g a day on GW2. If this keeps up, they'll up the rate that wood drops to flood the market. Gold shouldn't be this easy to make. Along with my rare drops it goes up to almost 10g a day.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Inflation is kicking in fast. Everything is going up in price like crazy. Supplies of goods are dropping with ppl buying up surplus with their extra gold. Steel ingots are almost back up to its all time high:

      https://www.gw2tp.com/item/19688-steel-ingot?full=1

      And gold to gem conversion is at crazy levels right now and they'll only continue to go up.

      Sucks for them. Its like a how a good movie might come out the same weekend as a new Star Wars and bomb horribly just because of bad timing.

  16. Bolt is not only visually impressive, Its no where near as common as the 3 legendary Greatswords. Twilight is still my favorite, but Bolt is awesome, and someone complemented me on it during Frozen Maw and asked if it was worth making. XD

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Bolt really is uncommon. I only see maybe a couple a week. That was pretty damn awesome yesterday tho. We made matching legendaries on the same day. After I make another gift of fortune I'm going to buy one of those ghostly infusions for my ranger. XD I have the red SAB infusion but not the blue. Now I kind of regret not getting those yellow sab skins for it. oh well. lol.

      7. Can I play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered without buying Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare?
      No, you must own Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in order to get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

      12. Will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered have dedicated servers?
      Yes, it will.

      It wont be sold separately. :\ I'll wait and see if they eventually release it standalone.

      Dedicated servers in a CoD game!? wow. O_O

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Thats a faux statement. Its a hyrbrid in which you never really know if you are on P2P or Dedicated servers. Blops 3 uses it and it still has similar issues. COD4's netcode was good enough that P2P was never noticeable outside of cheaters. I have a feeling the 10 missing maps will be tied to the season pass. They're desperate for sales since Ghosts was received so negatively. Honestly I'm surprised they are taking the gamble. When everyone realizes how shit IW is, they'll all go to MW1... but then when the younger crown gets rekt by those skilled at non gimmicky gunplay, they'll stop playing it. A few insta downs from the M16 or MP5 and they'll be going back to blops 3.

      They'll sell it eventually. It may be a year after the game comes out just to milk some sales, but they'll do it. It will probably be a GOTY edition with all related stuff that was tied into the season pass.

    4. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Hybrid setup. ehhh. Activision needs to go full dedicated. If they release it at a decent price as a standalone I'll buy it for the campaign, but if they're going to release this only as a combo I'll never buy it. It makes me wonder how much work they had to put into the remaster to have it combo'd with a new full CoD game at a $79 price point. I remember that one article where the majority of CoD's game engine has never changed since modern warfare. Its like the entire series is setup like a factory assembly line. They probably just had to load the original Modern Warfare files into their workstations and it was all ready to go except for adding new textures to make it 'remastered'. Of course I have no idea if I'm even close to being right about this assumption since I have no experience with programing. lol.

  18. Finished up HPs in VB and then caught a train in AB. I'm 60 HPs away from completing my scrapper. The hammer play is pretty cool, I need all my gyros to get the full experience.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      The HPs in HoT are still champions. I thought they were changing them to vets like most the events, but I guess not. I was able to solo the communes surrounded by vets by spamming nade kit, but I was lucky enough to catch the champion HPs in progress. I don't know how people enjoy base engineer. its such a massive rotation that is all ground targeted with ass for mobility. I guess I'm so use to being able to faceroll with DH and Reaper, or the high mobility of Ranger and Mesmer with their stamina regen traits/skills. Engi has some great damage, but you can't afford to take as much punishment as other classes like Warrior/Reaper/Rev.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Interesting. Whats your setup so far? Hammer, rifle, double pistols? You can only equip a couple of kits at a time right? like flamethrower and grenades?

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Rifle is meta fo base, but it's laughable. You stay in nade kit and rotate 1-5 F1-5. I'm probably never gonna run fractals or raids with her so I'll use the power hammer build on meta battle. I already invested in zerk gear before the condi update. 

  19. Stomped an Anet employee on EoTM. XD A lot more Zerg v Zerg going on these days. Its pretty fun. The reward track is the best thing to happen to WvW.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I dunno. I mean if you have everything else you want it is kinda worth it. My DH has 15k HP now from vital infusions on my ascended armor/trinkets. XD that's absurd for Guardian. 

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      All of my infusion slots are full of agony resistance. x_x The only way I can add power is to make those expensive things. But the fractal mastery does have a vendor that lets me extract infusions for 24 silver per piece of armor. I've used it so many times swapping AR around. I made sure to save my +20 exp and +20 magic find infusions that I bought with laurels. If I can finally put high level fractals to the curb I'll swap some of this AR over to power infusions and save the AR ones for a rainy day. I really wish AR was an account bound upgrade thing like a mastery and not tied to armor slots.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Yeah I use vital/power. It's a great boost for regular dungeons.

  20. Mike O'Brien will be under center today when GW2's quarterly update goes live. Nothing has been revealed about it, and its a different approach to this type of stuff than we're all use to under Colin. That being said, there is no telling how much Colin had his hand on this update, and how much was changed under Mike.

      I'm hoping for the best but expecting minimal changes to the aspects of the game that affect what I play. I don't care for the raids and pvp was pretty much ruined for me. Unless some new content happens via LW or WvW soon, the only thing I'll have left in the game is fractal farming for my back piece and finishing bolt. If the HoT maps do get more casual I could actually play them in my spare time which would give me something new to do.

  21. Checked my crafting station with the mind set of making ascended armor for the first time. I was able to craft 2 more pieces for my Guardian. I just need to save up more damask to get the last 3. I might as well get it done before they increase the requirements more. It's been a while since I spent all day on GW2.

      I have 2 pieces of ascended armor on my warrior from ascended armor drops from fractals (i know at least 1 was from fractals, can't remember about the other). But I've been doing fractals off and on for over a year. And I thought it'd be a good way to farm ascended armor. jokes on me. x_x

  22. When you go to the DZ solo for the sole purpose of killing 10 cleaners for the weekly and the cleaner boss drops a gear set piece... I didn't need that stress, but I extracted successfully. X_x

      Eh, I'll probably attempt it tonight after I do the HM missions when they reset. That 30 creds would give me enough to by the M44 blueprint.

      I see now why those weapons are almost 1000 credits... they are 204 gear score. I guess it makes sense now. I bought my striker pads today and I rolled 99% scavenging on them. I'll try my luck in CM drops. I hear you can get a 204 weapon drop if you're lucky.

      Yea I noticed that today when I got on. Nice scavenging score, pretty sure you'll get a 204 HE with that). Finally bought the M44 blueprint and, while I probably didn't get the best rolls on it, the thing is a beast in the test range (almost 108,000 on headshot, almost 152,000 on crit headshot). Can't wait to actually try it out on enemies.

  23. Ratchet & Clank is a blast. Its been so long since I've played the first game, I can't remember of any resemblance of it in this one. I remember the story, and its definitely told a bit differently here. The visuals are pixar quality for sure.

      Sounds fun. :D Back in the day I had the chance to play Ratchet & Clank and never did. I regretted that. Instead I played Crash Bandicoot. That was fun at the time but all these years later Ratchet & Clank looks like the better franchise.

      R&C is def better than Bandicoot. Bandiicoot was just a regular platformer. R&C along with platforming and various puzzles, has always had an amazing array of weapons, tools, and abilities. Not only that it's always had an interesting upgrade system to go along with each weapon. Although the games have always been super easy, this preorder weapon I got is ultra OP. XD I've stopped using it after I maxed it by the 3rd planet I was on just to play with other weapons. Its really one of those games you just sit back and enjoy without any frustrating moment. The story has always been great, the check points are beyond forgiving on death, and its just an all around casual good time. :P

      You really know how to sell a game. *is tempted to buy* :D

  24. WTF is this ice on the floor on SAB W2... X_x I'd rage so hard if this was on any of the regular world JPs.

      I hate that ice. x_x If you hit the shovel skill you can stop your sliding tho.

  25. With DOOM and Overwatch on the horizon it would be nice to see oldschool mechanics come back to the FPS genre. Hopefully these games do very well. I might pick up DOOM for the single player.

      I'd play DOOM for the single player. The multiplayer for that looks like an afterthought like the uncharted 3, tomb raider and last of us multiplayer modes.
