  1. I just hit the jackpot on No Man's Sky. I found a planet where 40k credit items litter the ground. I'm gonna have millions of credits soon. XD It will be worth the inventory hassle to ferry them back and forth to any TP I find.

    1. Sledgstone

      Wow. Congrats! XD

      I've gone from 400k to 3 million in a few hours of scavenging. XD I can no high roll someone for their ship at a space station and still have some left over.

  2. I just saw the most efficient DS in GW2 history. 48 minute finish, no blighted room resets, and a 1 burn mouth kill. The bomb site landed on the island next to the mouth attack, we had perfect might stack and CC. Damn it, was satisfying.

      Thats impressive. :tup:

  3. 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.

      That or a hook for people to buy them now that they're in the store.

      I take it back,  it is premium. I just saw it on Facebook. Lol

      Sledgstone

      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.

  4. 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.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

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

  5. I never got into Samurai Jack, and now I really don't like Samurai Jack because the marathon is going to delay the AoT dub episode on Funimation since it wont air on CN this week. -_-; WTF.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I wish the ending went a bit differently but I am glad we finally got closure. The series was definitely artistic. The purposeful lack of black border lines is what really thru alot of people off from it in the beginning. Its alot like the cell shading and wrong human body types in Legend of Zelda Wind Waker. That game's lack of black border lines separating colors and large heads thru me off from that game initially. Samurai Jack grew on me quick tho. The 300 episode with the Spartans was one of my favorites. :D And anything with the Scotsman. :D

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Meh, I felt the ending was forced as if they were just trying to live up to our expectations but fell sadly short (I mean I was all happy for Jack until the ending fully played out, plus the whole Daughters of Aku thing jsut didn't fell natural for how the show originally progressed). Honestly I thought they could of done more with the ending, maybe flesh out the season some more of make a sixth season to wrap everything up a lot nicer. Ohwell, overall it wasn't badly done it just left a sour taste in my mouth.

      Honestly I never had a problem with the art direction (in fact I actually really like it) then again I'm an artist and I like this artsy shit (though cel shading will never be art, it's just poorly done and looks terrible). I thought it fit the story and setting quite well. Honestly I really need to re-watch the series completely to get a better feel for the ending because I honestly don't remember it all that well beyond Season 2 (I've seen it completely through but I honestly don't remember the middle two seasons)

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Me and lady rewatched the entire series just before the final season began airing. It helped alot since so many characters and events were referenced in season 5. I was hoping Jack would have defeated aku twice. Once in the future and again in the past.. just in case that future was already set as an alternate time line regardless of the past being changed at that point. It broke my heart to think that the butterfly effect of Jack defeating aku in the past would negate everything he did in the future and all the ppl who may not even exist now as a result of the time line change. I wish we could have gotten an epilogue with scenes of an aku free future were the Scotsman was still enjoying life with his daughters.

  6. 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.

      Not yet because I have been able to play much, my vertigo subsided for me to play again. I give it a while after it goes away before I try to play.

  7. 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).

  8. I'll give credit where its due. Microsoft had a pretty good E3 presentation. But sadly for them the XBox One X is like the Wii U in title. Its going to get them screwed up. On top of that what percentage of the base is going to be using 4k? $500 is steep. Its like the Goldstar 3DO... unnecessarily ahead of its time. They had some time exclusive stuff, but Sony had real exclusives like Spider-Man, Days Gone, and of course God of War.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Problem is why would you shell out money for a console with a 4k BD Player if you don't have a TV capable of playing it? I think this is the reason Sony didn't go with one, why waste money and potential sales due to cost when most of your consumer base doesn't have the tech to run it. Then again I say this after buying a PC more powerful than the XBoneX/PS4 Pro will ever be (though I do not have a 4k BD player or 4k monitor and I wouldn't waste money on it. 4k gaming is a pipe dream that only the super rich can afford and at that it's not true 4k gaming since most PC's aren't powerful enough to run it). I didn't really catch the conference since I've lost all interest in E3 (I get more excited for TGS and Gamescom) but I got the gist from Twitter (and most people were pretty underwhelmed by MS's showing).

      Reason why Sony has more exclusives is because they are actually focused on gaming, not being the center entertainment hub of you're room (which is MS's big thing for the XBoneX).

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I'm going to be salty when XBone gets the early access to all the Anthem content. I know its coming since they get the Battlefield stuff. Kinda sad that we got Activision this time when last gen it was flip flopped. I know I was glad to get Destiny exclusives before ya know... I never got them. *cough*Hawkmoon*cough*. But fuck COD.

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      You know it's going to happen what with Playstation having timed exclusivity for Destiny 2 content and sadly it's only fair. The XBone hasn't really had any exclusive DLC for games that are really worth anything (their only real exclusive worth anything is Halo and those honestly aren't worth the console anymore).

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. I'm almost done with GARO: Crimson Moon. I'm pretty disappointed with it. Its no where near as good as GARO: The Animation was. The story is pretty meh, and they reduced the golden night to some sailor moon type format where he only gets to transform at the end of the episode and wins in 2-3 moves. -_-; It reminds me how Blood-C is inferior to Blood+ as they both take place in similarly unconnected time frames.

  12. 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

  13. I'm starting to get really good with Genji. I got gold in eliminations several times tonight, and carried at 51% kill participation in one of my matches. And with a buff to his ult in the pipeline, I won't have to worry about my fun getting nerfed for a while. XD There are few things that feel amazing in this game. Hooking airborne Phara with Roadhog, Hooking Tracer with Roadhog, Killing a good Zarya period, and deflecting an ult back at the enemy team with Genji... because I totally got McCree good. XD

  14. I've worn the same par of Vans for almost 15 years. No other pair of shoes I've ever owned have lasted this long. The inserts are pretty much flattened to where I can feel every pebble of gravel under my foot, but the exterior is still perfectly intact minus the usual dirtiness acquired over such a time. I ordered a new pair of Vans and I'll probably get some new inserts for my current ones.

      My Carhartt is great, but the water resistance is nothing like it used to be. I thought the quick duck material was naturally water repellent but I notice all the quick duck gear is marketed now as "with Rain Defender® durable water repellent". Maybe mine was labeled like that too back when I bought it but I don't remember. After a few years and occasional washings, my coat needs a new coating of this water repellent but I don't see where I can buy a carhartt brand spray bottle of it online. I'm hesitant to use the water repellent I use on my grill covers because that stuff darkened the color of the fabric. I'm going to call the official Carhartt store in the mall near me and ask if they sell the actual rain defender spray once it gets closer to winter.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      XD yeah I had some Dickies shirts like that and within 3-4 washes it just turned into a normal absorbent shirt. 

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lol. yep. I like Dickies brand belts, but their shirts and pants always felt noticeably heavier to me compared to similar styles of other brands. Hows the quality of the shirts besides the water repellent properties? XD

      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.

  16. If you think you're hot shit in Overwatch and tea bag me, I'll swap to Junkrat and make you're life a living hell. Thats what some asshole playing Reaper learned tonight. I generally don't play my two best characters as much as I want to because I've been expanding my skill set. Dude got the best of me multiple times when I was playing McCree the previous round, then he did that, and went on to die 15 times in a match because of me.... including getting a rip tire to the face 4 times, and every time he managed to kill me, he died from my martyrdom.... and they lost the match, and he left after that. XD

  17. 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.

      http://www.vg247.com/2016/10/05/call-of-duty-infinite-warfare-legacy-edition-box-reveals-a-whopping-130gb-hdd-requirement/

      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.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      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.  

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      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.

  18. In BF4 my favorite troll was RPG chopper take downs. In Overwatch it's trap/mine Genji, especially in his ult with Junkrat. XD I'll have to upload my match later where two Genji's tried to harass me, I got the better of them both way more times than they got me. 

    1. Strider Hiryu
    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

       XD I love it when a Genji player just starts his ult right there in plain slight rather than hiding somewhere first. Insta-kill shutdown. XD

  19. 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.

  20. Its pretty irritating how inconsistently YouTube runs on Firefox. Even at 40mpbs it still buffers and stalls on long videos.. but only for certain videos and channels. Sometimes I can watch an hour video no issue, sometimes I can't. But on Chrome it always works... because you know, google owns both. -_-;. Its bullshit. Anytime I want to watch Wooden Potatoes I pretty much have to do it on chrome.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Firefox's quality has gone to shit over the years. But some of the issues might be related to the ad blocking addons I have running. uBlock Origin and Ad Block Plus keep firefox my primary browser tho. Too many websites are assholes with advertisements. Google Chrome is coming out with an update that is supposed to block annoying ads by default. Popups, auto play videos, blocking content ads. If that actually happens I might switch over to chrome completely. Especially if this does apply to their android browser. I don't mind some ads, but to hell if I'll even try to keep reading a page on my phone when I have to click 3 different 1 centimeter x's to close ads blocking all the text I'm trying to read.

      Source:

      I usually watch youtube on my roku stick with a combo of the youtube app on my phone to act as a remote control. It works pretty good.

      DeathscytheX

      Anytime I visit a page, mostly news articles and they don't give me any option without turning off ad blocker I just leave. I'm not going to click your ads ever, so you aren't losing revenue. I don't need to see what I just looked at/bought from Amazon. The only thing you're losing is a viewer and you're gaining recommendation to never visit your site via word of mouth. Adblock Plus needs to update its code to avoid these detectors. 

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Those annoying detectors are using javascript. So I ended up getting a javascript off/on toggle add on for pages like that. As soon as I see the message, I click the toggle, hit refresh, read the article, close the page and turn javascript back on. Its getting ridiculous to avoid ads just to read a single page of text. Without adblock I get more online ads per content than I do with watching a movie on cable. btw, uBlock Origin is better than adblock plus now. I have both on at the same time. But the problem I'm getting now is firefox open with a single page is taking up 5% of my cpu and over half a gig of memory. I don't know if its because of firefox being optimized shittily or if its the addons causing the issue. Meanwhile, google chrome will sit with .02 cpu usage (if that) after a page is loaded and only take up roughly 300 mb of ram over its multiple processes combined.

  21. Just finished Assassination Classroom. It was a lot of fun, even though the premise was stupidly unbelievable.

  22. Just finished Mob Psycho 100. It was an entertaining watch. It went from bat shit crazy to serious crazy half way through. The fights were good, and I enjoyed the "dated animation" approach.

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.
