      I agree! XD Akane did beat quite a few people in Ranma. XD

      I found out from lady a couple weeks ago that this has a word: "Misandry!"

      "hatred of men", "violence against men", and more. :P

      Medusa was a poor choice for the list. Her violent acts weren't out of comendy. For violence with evil intent Lucy from Elfen Lied would be #1 no contest.

      I'm surprised Boa Hancock from One Piece isn't in the list. Shes deemed the most beautiful woman in the world, and if someone hits on her, she instant kills them for being lecherous. Not just one guy either, she instant kills entire groups of men in mere seconds. XD

  1. http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/03/20/infamous-second-son-review I'm looking foward to this. Of course I have to work late tomorrow -_-;

      This game looks stunning. Let me know how the gameplay is when you get a chance to play it.

  2. I MUST HAVE THIS!!!!!

      I know..... Makes me want to grind crucible. XD I'd probably get all blues.

      Whenever I played crucible, it was always the same thing.. I'd get nothing and the top 3 players would get 2 pieces of blue armor with high light points. -_-

      Crucible is always random. I've gotten stuff for being in last place before. Hawkmoon is like my Monte Carlo, it's a random drop from high end stuff or decrypts from engrams.

  3. Probably my favorite work from Taylor Davis.

      The camera work and location for that song looked great. The song is good too. I really like her Bink's Sake song. Its a shame she didn't put on a giant afro and yell "Yohohohoho" tho. XD

      If you haven't gotten to that part in one piece, it'll make sense when you do. :P

  4. Did my first 3 placement matches on Overwatch Competitive Season 2 tonight. Went 2-1 so far. My first match was with a horrible team. We never held the point once. My second match we held on after some asshole left our team... once again after we went up 1-0. I clutched it out with D.Va getting 40 elims and 3 triple kills with my ult. The nerf to her defense matrix isn't that bad, but it will def put an end to the double D.Va defense in QP that has become so popular.

    The no sudden death works good for payload. My third match we barely capped the point on King's Row and didn't get the payload to the 1st check point. But we stopped the other team from getting as far as we did. It shortens up some of the longer competitive matches. In the past you both got a chance to push it, and then sudden death would choose a team to attack and they had to get it to 1 check point.

  5. I got an interesting email from Amazon about something called the Carnivore Club. It looks pretty neat, but damn It's too expensive for my comfort. I'll probably sign up for 1 month and cancel just to get a box. I've never been apart of any subscription box service before because I don't need random junk every month that I might or might not like. But I can eat this stuff, that all looks really delicious. If I could afford $55 a month for some snack meats, I'd do it. XD What caused me to post about this was the fact that it has two 1 star reviews written by angry vegans posting about how sick and disgusting it was, and how they are promoting cancer and cardiovascular disease. XD

    I remember back in the day I always looked forward to Christmas because we use to get those boxes with all the cured meats and smoked cheeses in them. They're pretty hard to find now, at least in the quality that they were back then. Now you just get some basic summer sausage and Kraft tier cheese. The Carnivore Club reminds me of the old fancy ones minus the cheese.... hmmm I wonder if there is a cheese club? O_O

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lmao! $55 a month!? Holy crap that'll get costly after a while. XD Me and a friend of mine are going to make our own salami, pepperoni and summer sausage this winter in bulk so we'll have cured meats all year long.

  6. 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

     

  7. I must have started watching Fairy Tail like 4 or 5 years ago. I always got held up by the dub progress. I finally finished the 265 or so eps that are out. Overall I really loved this series despite its tons of flaws. The story was very child friendly as no one really ever dies in a fight. If someone dies, its none of the important characters and they're already dead when they're found. Hell they even brought one back that was supposedly dead the first 3-4 seasons. However where it isn't child friendly is the fan service that progressively gets more abundant each season. Rather than a joke here and there it's bewb flaunting and gratuitous bent over shots. FT does have the most luscious cast of females you could ask for in an anime, and they exploit it the later into the series you get to the point its laughable. I feel like the series peaked at the Grand Magic Games and they ran out of inspiration after that. The whole former enemies turning good got old after it kept happening. I mean Minerva had resting bitch face, and Flare had psycho face to indicate they were indeed villains, so it was odd later to see them get the normal face when they weren't evil anymore. XD What made me love the series is the running gags and the fact that most all the characters had their own fights and stayed on equal footing with Natsu, rather than taking the DBZ approach and having the main character surpass everyone to where only he could do anything of value. Even though Laxus and Guildarts were super mega ultra OP, they were never around when it really mattered. Anyways, I'll be looking forward to the final season later this year. This was by far my favorite opening sequence.

      Wait until you see all the ass pulls in the last arc of this series. XD At one point I thought the manga was going to go full hentai. -_-; I hope the guy does make a sequel tho. I read this manga for 10 years and even tho it fell apart in the end, I miss it.

  8. I rewatched Paranoia Agent for the first time since it originally aired on Adult Swim over a decade ago. It wasn't as weird as I remember it being... probably because I've seen way more weird stuff since then and have been desensitized. It was still bizarre though. It will always have one of the most strange and memorable openings.

      I need to rewatch this. It was pretty unique at the time.

  9. I used 56 Machetes on DS and still didn't get the charged horn and focus part. I can do DS 2 more times for a guaranteed part from the big chest, which is probably what I'll have to do because I can't afford to buy any machetes with this grind. What is funny is that I went to AB afterwards and it happened to be a finished map so I looted all the chests without helping the meta. XD It helped me finish up the machined staff and in turn I finished up the Druid staff collection.

    Now I'm wishing I bought all the mystic weapon skins back when they were 10g each. They're upwards of 50g each now because of Mystic Coin prices. I'll need one for each spec weapon... thankfully staff counts for DD's staff as well. I def want a free asc warhorn so next time I see that Trixi person doing an HoT run I'll take my Ele along because I'll never be able to bare it otherwise.

      I think only the plated weapons unlock the machined weapons. Might want to check anyways because so much crap pops up on the feed when you open the boss chest you could have missed it. That's why I wanted to unlock all the rest at once so I wasn't missing strikes on pods for them. I got most of them with the first 10 machetes I used and then I got 2 more before I ran out. It was pretty disheartening since machetes just don't drop like chak acid and crowbars. I could do a chain event on TD and have 20-30 chak acid easy. You're lucky to get 3 for an entire DS run before you pick the box that gives you 12 from the meta completion bouncy chest. 

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats a good idea then. I've been using that leyline convertor every day for the free machete. I think I'm up to 50 of them again. Mostly because the last time I did DS I had left over machetes since I've only done DS about 6-7 times now. lol.

      Try looking at Lfg around 30 min into it. I caught a group at the blighting tree rooms before the mouth. Got a nice short DS. 

  10. I've watched so much anime since getting Funimation, I can't remember half of what I watched. I'll see something I remember watching and enjoying but i can barely remember any of the story. I guess I can tell what I felt was truly great when I can remember what happened. It doesn't really take much for me to enjoy a series without it being a favorite. Here is what actually stood out to me in the last year whether it came out in 2017 or not... none of these are more than 2 years old.

    Mob Psycho 100
    I adore this anime, and its a close second to My Hero Academia. It's unique blend of purposely plain character designs, mixed with its batshit psychedelic fight sequences, along with the comical still expression scenes sets it apart from the norm we've been getting over the past few years. Its wacky and fun.

    Drifters
    As a history nerd I really enjoyed this series. The animation and character designs are top notch, and the fight scenes are really good. The Hellsing people did this one and it has the same gore level. Its also one of the better Dubs out there.

    My Hero Academia
    Easily my favorite series I've seen in a while. Unique characters, great fights that never drag, excellent background music that properly sets the tone, and superb animation. This is #1 on my recommendation list for anyone looking for a new series to watch. Christopher Sabat brings his Major Armstrong type persona to Allmight, and its great. XD 

    Kuromukuro
    This one is on netflix. Its a fun watch. Good action, comedy, mecha design, and fights. Its not on the level of Aldnoah.Zero or Gun X Sword, but its definitely more entertaining to watch than Knights of Sidonia.

    Lupin III part 4
    Not much to say other than its classic Lupin. Although this season was a bit more connected with an overall story arc rather than several single standing episodes. The animation keeps it's classic designs with modern shading and a much more fluid motion. The new recurring characters were also well done.

  11. If there is one thing I despise about anime across all genres, its the damn "recap X.5" episode. Nothing makes me cringe more when I load up my funi app only to see this week is a waste of time for one of the shows I watch. I was really irritated that FMP had one after just 4 episodes, and Legend of Galactic Heroes has one this week. Seriously, what a waste of effort and time. Even if I missed episodes, I'd rather go back and see the whole ep rather that get caught up on some clips from it mashed in with everything I've already seen.

    On another note, My Hero Academia was freaking amazing this week. Any ep where All Might fights is seriously some of the best content of the series.

    And then Steins;Gate 0 just gut punched us in the feels this week with Okabe shortly going back to an alpha world line... oh the feels. The emotional level of this series is brutal. It's been a while since I've felt this much empathy for a character.

      I can't remember what series it was but I remember a show having 2 recap episodes and it was done in a way that there was actually about 5 mins of new content in the two episodes that you had to see to know how they got to a location to know what was going on in next episode. -_-; And of course those 5 mins of content was spread out through the episode and all the recap was the characters "remembering" or having a flash back. Screw these recap eps.

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Probably because something big goes down in episode 8 and they wanted to give us more time to process it. That or they're just trying to draw this out longer to get more viewers/get ratings higher(it's obvious they won't get where they want to in 12-13 eps, probably hoping to get a second/fifth season greenlit). Either way it's pissing me off, just when shit starts getting good they fucking cock block us with a recap episode.

    4. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Speaking of the feels train. Funi put up the first 4 episodes if Iron Blooded Orphans... geez really? I'm not even over the first big death near the end of season one. I'm guessing they're promoting the blue-ray or something, they normally put a few eps up, and then put the rest up when they're done with the promotion. 

  12. NieR: Automata's soundtrack is probably my favorite for a game in a very long time. It's been a while since a game's tune gets stuck in a loop in my head through out the day. I haven't loved the music for a game this much since God of War and Dark Cloud.

     

  13. Once again my company restructures and my position in the company is eliminated. I'm pretty much a lock for another position they created, but its getting old having to worry about whether I'll have a job the next year when they probably do change again. It will be a night shift management position so I'll be working late again and not get to game with friends like I've been enjoying the past 8-9 months. On the upside at least I'll be back in management, and not some guy thats coded for a job he's not really doing because he's being used as a manager/utility guy.

    I was going to buy a new graphics card and power supply, but its on hold now until I know for sure I'll still be employees in a few weeks. Its pretty tough watching people lose their job that you've worked with for years. It seems just about every retail company is doing this lately. I know Lowes recently laid off a shit ton of managers.

      The problem with $15 an hour is all this bullshit fight against evil big corporations not paying the little man enough. You can't champion the middle class by doing this shit because all it does is fuck small and medium size businesses. They cant afford to pay people $15 an hour. Thus you're actually just helping big business by maintaining a monopoly over everything becasue no one will ever be able to become an innovative start up company. Industry will never change unless it's cost effective for the status quo. I've argued with people about this before "You want people to stay poor!" No you fucking moron, no one deserves to live in a 150k sq ft house and drive a new Jeep when all the do is drop a basket of fries in oil... otherwise no one would want to aspire to be anything else.

      Yes the overtime law had a lot to do with the first restructure even though my company denies it. A lot of companies did this and its not like they can go "Oh, well.. everyone can have their job back now that we don't have to pay you OT". And this latest move was their "fix". I'll admit there were a lot of people in the positions that were cut, that didn't need to be there. A lot has changed in the company over the last 10 years, and some people just had a leadership title but didn't lead anyone, and didn't pull their weight either because they felt some of the work was below them. I've always made it a point to make myself indispensable. I've always busted my ass and dealt with any unfair bullshit situations, by accepting it and still working hard. Thats why I've made it through 3 of these things. What irritates me are those that always seem to be safe from these by luck or by getting the right promotion or being at the right place at the right time. There is that certain echelon I've been trying to get to, but it always evades me because this happens when I'm so close. To get in, someone has to quit or get fired, which is rare. Of course the last 3 times its happened was after the last restructure and they ended up no cutting enough jobs, so those extras got to fill the new vacancies to level off stores to the right amount. But with how it is now, it will probably be years before anyone retires.

      As a guy stuck in these low level positions (mostly by choice, I've worked my way up only to have it bite me in the ass so I'm happy being down here with the grunts) it's nice to see the incentive of raising the minimum wage however they're doing it the wrong way. Raising wages to a flat $15 an hour isn't the answer, it's their way of making themselves look like they care when they don't (and a way to make it so jobs don't leave the country which sadly isn't going to stop). I've said it more than once that minimum wage needs to be based on the currently standard of living in each city/state (more so city but that's due to where I live more then anything) as, like DX pointed out, most smaller to medium sized businesses can't afford to pay wages not centered on their areas SoL (businesses that are small mom and pop shops or state chains, not businesses like Walmart who could afford to pay all their employees $15 and up an hour but choose not to (don't be fooled by them raising their wages, just a publicity stunt. More wages means less people to work now so it gets harder on those employees still there (they actually eliminated a lot of positions in the company to do this))). Sadly the people leading our country don't see this (and Trump for one doesn't give two shits about us little guys trying to make a living) and just do things without fully thinking it through and businesses don't care outside of what it will cost them (hence the lay offs and what have you). Just because $14 an hour is the bare minimum needed to be able to survive where I live (due to the Bakken/Oil Industry) doesn't mean you should be paying your employees that in a small town where $9 an hour will let them live a comfortable life (not many places I know of where $9 an hour will suffice but I'm sure they're out there).

      Sadly though it'll continue to happen. Eventually minimum wage will get so high we won't have any jobs to go after as they're all shifted overseas to people willing to work for less than a dollar an hour. I don't bitch because I make enough money to cover my bills, make sure I have food, and pay for those few luxuries I enjoy (even though I'm making less money an hour then I was before I got fired, man OT really makes up that difference though) but I know of plenty of people who don't (close friends as well who can't aspire to be more because they can't afford to get the schooling or training to do so) so yeah. Like I said I don't bitch, no reason to because no matter how loud we bitch very little gets heard or changed for the better.

      Sadly DX it's those people who will never give up those positions and when they eventually do they'll probably restructure again to deny you the position (don't know the situation or what its like to work for you're company but I know plenty of companies that will do shit like that saying the position is no longer needed and they were getting rid of it). No matter how indispensable you make yourself it rarely ever pays off because after awhile those people just keep using you to better themselves (me being fired is one of those instances, busted my ass for 10 months to make the store look better only to get fired due to allegations that I was stealing only because the person who deserved to get fired was trying to take everyone who helped her out with her (yea she got fired but took nearly the whole management team with her). The Store Manager didn't even try to defend us in the fallout, just let us take the fall so he wouldn't look bad (again a reason why I never want to be in a position of power again)).

      I've known 2 people that made upwards to 6 figures for their jobs and 1 that was making easily 200k a year. Over the last 20 years, when they retired at different times from their respective jobs, each one of them found out that the person that ended up with their jobs or the equivilant of their jobs were all making roughly 40-60k instead. All these old people know they got into their jobs at the right time with guaranteed raises when they were hired. All they had to do was stick with a company for decades to reap in all the rewards. Way back when job loyalty and retention was more important so all the companies gave out pensions, guaranteed raises, company matched retirement plans, etc. No jobs nowadays offer pensions except maybe being a teacher. The US companies have taken everything they can get from the employees over the years to increase their bottom lines and over time we all got used to it... except for those old people in their comfy jobs now. The old baby boomers are a reason we have the low wages we face today as well as all the jobs shipped overseas. All the companies are paying the old baby boomers such high wages and benefits that the money has to come from somewhere other than their profits, so all new employees get paid the minimum with no benefits. Even if all those baby boomers retired now, our culture is already used to these shit wages and they wont go back up. I had a coworker that was forced into retirement about 5 years ago. He literally died the year after that. I swear all these old people want to keep working until the day they die.

      This is the first phone I've had with stock android. it's taken a bit to get use to. While its not horrible, I don't get what people have against HTC Sense and Samsung Touchwiz. they're both really nice overlays. One thing I noticed is that google's default SMS app blows ass. It didn't even give me a number bubble on the icon. I downloaded QKSMS and its really simple and nice. Whatsapp just looked me to me and I rather not see the app name at the top at all times. I just needed something for SMS and not for everything, and the minimalist design of QKSMS works perfectly for me.

    4. Sledgstone

      Try the Verizon messages app. I still prefer it over the regular SMS app but the smilies still annoy me because they only have their classic ones (looks like Apple emoji) or default (looks like Facebook emoji). The classic is far better than those lifeless faces they have as default. XD

      Even tho it's labeled as Verizon messages, any android phone can use it because it's just another SMS app on the Google play store. It's actually pretty good after changing some of the default settings around.

  16. 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.

      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)).

      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.

      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

  17. 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.

      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.

      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.

      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. 

  18. The older I get, the more I dislike the general public. I was never Mr. Popular in school because I kept to myself and felt that the upper echelon of the social order was so trivial. I can befriend just about anyone of any type of values/background. But overall my circle of friends is pretty small, and always has been.

    I say all that to say this... holy shit why are people so fucking stupid on the internet? I'm pretty new to this whole reddit/facebook groups thing. I remember running around anime forums as a 14-15 year old shooting off at the mouth like I was hot shit... but these are grown ass adults that don't have a fucking clue what they are talking about, nor do they want to learn.

    I see all these morons on the GW2 facebook group asking dumbshit questions you can easily look up yourself on wiki or youtube... The GW2 community has the best community of YT guide makers of any game... quite literally there are the most pointless guides for even the biggest imbeciles.  Taking 5 steps in a straight line from a waypoint to get to a POI? You better believe there is a YT video on how to do it! Just type in the name of the POI and at least 5-6 20 sec-1min videos will pop up. You could have tabbed out of GW2, or pulled out your phone and looked that bullshit up and got it done w/o wasting your time posting a question in a facebook group and waiting for someone to respond. I mean what the actual fuck? Then they get butthurt when someone posts the link to the wiki, and people actually coddle this fool like we shouldn't tell him to try harder to help himself? I almost left the group because of that because it was the second time in two days I saw it. Kumbaya shit pisses me off, and as a society its lead to the everything is offensive/racist/bigoted/cruel. Sometimes people have to feel like people think they're stupid to better themselves. Its called learning the hard way, and I've done a lot of it myself.

    Then you have assholes telling you about the class you main, and they have no fucking clue how the class works.... because they don't even play it. They main another class. Its obvious by what they're spewing out, by leaving out various aspects of the class while giving out vague descriptions... then a lot of times saying something that's completely false.

    But this is just a side note really, what set me off on this rant today is another facebook group. I'm a EDC nut. I own multiple guns, pocket knives, and flashlights. I recently got into a group about a particular brand of knife I enjoy. Overall its a great group that gives me good ideas about future purchases I might make. I recently ordered a knife that is an upgraded version exclusive from a certain knife retailer. It has a high tier quality blade steel, making the knife double the cost of the standard version. Even then at $80, this steel is normally only found on pocket knives that are $220-400. Its one hell of a deal. So this new guy that joined the group asks in a comment reply why would anyone pay double the price for this knife when he got it for way less. I explained to him what the deal was, because that's what the group is for... sharing knowledge and opinions. He never responded so I figured he understood and moved on.... then later down the comments I see him ask the question again... -_-; Another member tells him about the steel, and I follow up explaining that its an exclusive version of the knife only sold by that particular retailer, and I even go into why that steel is special and its characteristics. Once again no acknowledgement. He later makes his own post, posting the basic version of this knife that he owns, and someone asks him what version it is, and he states he just found out that there are more than one version of his knife and asks AGAIN why is there a one doubled in price.... this all took place in the span of 17 hours. I mean did you not fucking read mine and other peoples explanation? You read it enough to know there was more than one version! Holy shit.... Why are you so fucking ignorant? Is your mental retention that bad? How did you even manage make it back to the facebook group two days in a row?

    I'm not really raging, even though it sounds like it. It just bothers me that people act this helpless. The internet has made people even more lazy despite the fact that there is a wealth of knowledge to be had. I've learned a shit ton using it, whether it be about science, history, or my very own hobbies. I mean how do these people even pay their internet bill? Did they post on their ISP's forum to ask how to do it? Google is a powerful tool to find quick answers to everything. It requires way less clicks. Use groups and reddit for opinion discussion... not for basic questions that you need to find on your own. You just look like someone that could drown in the shower.

      Stupid ppl and pc correctness / coddlers like that are what make me treat Facebook groups and Reddit completely different from traditional forums. In a forum I'll look at every topic, post, etc. But on Facebook and Reddit I won't even click the link if its some basic question that can be googled. And that guy you answered twice about the steel, he's either completely ignorant or a troll. I'll compare him to a climate change troll. On either end of the spectrum there's a person that already has their mind made up and thus they believe everyone else that doesn't agree with their belief is an idiot, or in the case of the knife he already believes it's not worth the price. Someone offers an explanation that is in opposition to their predetermined belief. That person will then proceed to publicly denounce the other's opinion or in the knife guy's case he ignores because he has no counter argument and then proceeds to ask the question again and again until they get someone to reinforce their idea. It's a horrible combination of ignorance and narcissism. I'm sure he read your info and realized he was wrong. But in true narcissistic fashion he won't admit he was wrong and instead makes another post that they learned something on their own with no help and now wants info on what they now believe, while at the same pretending their previous ignorance never existed.

      Narcissism is the biggest issue with the internet nowadays. Everyone is obsessed with themselves. Endless selfies. Everyone wants to be complimented and can't take any criticism even when it's beneficial. It's also a power trip. Whether they are aware of it or not, they are asking / telling ppl to do something for them they can easily do themselves. It's a similar mentality that happens in bad relationships. The husband sitting on the couch asking the wife for a beer. Of course he could just stand up, walk over to the fridge and get one, but why when someone else will do it for you. The internet is that lazy asshole sitting on a couch while taking a selfie and telling everyone they are wrong about everything.

      I guess that's what it was, but he is in the wrong place for that, and if he keeps it up he'll just get kicked from the group. The two knife groups I'm in have pretty solid admin staffs. They don't put up will bullshit. Someone got offended that people were posting guns with their knives, and they got booted pretty quick for raging about it. XD

  19. This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. XD On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.

    Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. XD A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.

    Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.

    Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.

      Overlord has been pretty meh so far, thankfully the current arc ended with episode 5 (the most current on CR). I'm all for world building but honestly these side stories are becoming a little to much for me (I know they're part of the books but I want more Ainz action). I won't go any further as it will ruin the character development but it was honestly unnecessary to show this.

      If it wasn't for Overlord I wouldn't be watching any of the new shows this season considering none have seemed interesting to me. My Hero and Steins:Gate 0 are the only currently airing shows I'm watching (and boy has Steins taken a turn for the extremely interesting as of the last episode. MHA is really dragging out this current arc so I'm not entirely sure how this season is going to end, my current prediction might not actually happen until the next, hopefully, season).

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I don't understand why they are structuring the anime to have arcs end in the middle of seasons. The open endedness of last season was odd. I figured Steines will be over within the next few weeks. I didn't look up the episode count to avoid spoilers but I know it won't be running through the entirety of this season so I don't count it. I don't even really count MHA or Black Clover since they are continuously to semi-continuously running through multiple seasons.

      SG0 has the same number of eps as SG so it'll end in little over a month if they don't take breaks (episode 18 is the newest).

      They're doing it the same way they did the books. Each arc is an adaptation of one book though by the sounds of it the current arc was book 8 so they skipped book 7 (which a lot of people are pissed about) and everyone is worried that now we only have 8 episodes to adapt books 7 and 9 for this season (which may or may not be enough episodes). Plus the way they were going we were in for some major story developments (we still are if they do the next 8 episodes right) but I think they're banking on getting a S4 so they're drawing shit out they don't need to (the feeling I've been getting with MHA but at least MHA is guaranteed a 4th season with how popular it is (I mean fuck it's getting an original movie that has nothing to do with the manga)).

  20. Trying to get better with Thief. The personal DPS is amazing, but damn you can't take a critical hit. I did manage to solo the lumber yard event in Lake Doric and prevented all the ghost bandits from making off with the lumber. WTF the ship event is 1000x harder and TTS couldn't even stop the White Mantle from making off with supplies. It doesn't help that one is a Mesmer that just instantly ports off with a bag of goods. The Lumber yard just has a shit ton of spider adds which would get annoying if I couldn't melt them all with staff 5.

    Out of all the classes I believe Daredevil will remain the superior option over its new elite spec for the expansion. I dont see Rifle thief being better than DD. Chronomancer will probably be there as well for raids. Guardian's virtues and utilities will have to be amazing to give up traps. I'm biasly hopeful about Scourge because it just sounds badass. If its true Viper Burnmancer could be insane.

      That's why I bring mine to TT now. Massive DPS with little work on the fingers. XD plus TT's tells are so slow and massive it's easy not to get hit and downed. 

  21. Well I guess I put off buying a video card for too long. All the prices have skyrocketed by 50% or higher because of some bullshit ethereum mining thing. I'm def not paying these prices. I was planning on doing it next month when I financially had a chance to do so. I guess I'll have to hope my video card last a bit longer.

      That's a bunch of 1070s in that pic. I'd wait until black Friday at this point to buy one. By then the current rush will be over and prices should go back to normal. That and half these ppl will probably flood eBay with cards around that same time. Other miners that don't care about efficiency as much will buy those and new cards should be normal prices again. 

    3. DeathscytheX

      nVidia is suppose to be releasing a special card for these people in the future that focuses on electrical efficiency which is what these people are after. Hopefully that will alleviate the problem.

      That would be good. I was reading this topic earlier:

      The flood of new miners is jacking up the price of the GPUs but also dropping the price of the return of investment. If it continues dropping, the gpu prices will probably rebound before black friday anyway. Some of these people are saying they make like $7 a day per 1080ti, $780 per card investment not counting tax. It would take at least 4 months to start earning a profit per card and thats not taking into consideration the cost of electricty they'd be using for a 24/7 max load per card. All in all I bet it takes close to 6 months to start making a profit. But once the profits come in, they're constant. Probably $180 a month per card unless the rates go back up to about $9 a day, then it'd be like $220 or so. But how long do these cards really last under that work load? I bet they last maybe a year at best, and these ppl like to sell them on ebay and buy a new card so the initial investment gets subsidized that way. They're probably making profit 6 months out of the year. Lower quality GPUs, like a 1060 6gb would make less money per day due to lower processing and the more people that get in on it lowers the total profits significantly. I bet the 1060s will be the first cards to go back to regular price.
