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

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

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

      Holy crap that sucks. x_x More free time is always nice tho.

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

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

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

  2. My right joystick on my Cinch PS4 controller is going bad. It doesn't register right turns very well. I think it has something to do with me taking it apart after the charge port fell into the controller. Part of that is my fault for being spoiled by USB-C and not checking if its in the correct orientation. It lasted me a good year and a half. I'm too spoiled to go back to a regular controller so I ordered another one.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Already been a year and a half? Wow that doesn't seem like it was that long ago. 

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I got it not too much longer after Overwatch came out. So it's been more than a year. I could send it in for repair later, but I bought one that was on sale with less features. The back buttons are all I care about. 

  3. My wealth is swelling. I should have near 1600g before LWS3 comes out. Thats uncharted terrority for me since I I've bought precursors the last two times i've reached just under 1100g. So much weird inflation on common items as made making gold super easy. I dumped all my powerful blood before the FGS chain starts. I'll plug away at that all week and save the mats for when prices go back up.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats good to know. I'll get my other characters to FGS just for farm weeks like this. I wonder if they'll change the map rewards with tomorrows update. The amazing FGS week might get changed and all the rewards more spread out.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I hope not. It's a big cycle it goes around. They can def give better rewards to other maps and have a nice profit week for a few more. I brought up dubloons because apparently you need a ton for juggernaut. It would be nice to give those players some relief that want to make it. Powerful blood comes up on Cursed Shore as well some weeks. Nerfing the fgs wouldn't make sense. The fact that it was one of the game's first farm maps makes it popular when that reward cycle comes out. I bet that's why they threw a bone out to those that still do it.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      The dubloons in general are the dumbest items in the game. They're only use is for crafting, but you can't deposit them and even though we have jeweler crafting, and we have copper and silver ore, we can't craft either. And on top of it, both will only drop from jumping puzzle chests for low level characters only. If they ever announce that silver dubloons can be crafted, I will craft all my silver ore into them and flood the market with the damn things. lol.

  4. Nintendo Switch wont support bluetooth which is kinda odd. So I bought a dongle for my TV in hopes I can use my PS4 turtles just for the sound. Nintendo Switch wont support bluetooth which is kinda odd. So I bought a dongle for my TV in hopes I can use my PS4 turtles just for the sound.

      You double posted in the same post. lol. Nintendo is really cutting corners on the Switch to yield maximum profits. They must have been really screwed by the Wii U's sales so bad that they have to get some serious company revenue going. I just read an article and someone is recommending a Bluetooth transmitter that plugs into the headphone jack of the switch.

      -_- I deleted the first one because of a typo, and the forum gets all crazy sometimes when you try to Cntl+V. It didn't show when I did it and hit enter.

      I already ordered a dongle from amazon. I can use my turtles directly with the TV, but I'm too lazy to keep unplugging it from the PS4 to the TV and usb phone charger for power. I could just turn the PS4 on, but then the room would get hot. -_-; Nintendo clearly put all their eggs on people playing this thing on the run, which isn't what the majority of people are going to use it for TBH. Its more 50/50 than anything. 

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

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

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

      DeathscytheX

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

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

  7. One year later my Cinch Controller is still running strong. I'm glad I went with this over Scuf. Scuf is the most popular, but they seem to be Xbox experts... even then I hear their paddles break within a year or less. Overwatch is what I've used to utilize on the most. Nier Automata is another but its not competitive. Every shooter I play I swap the right stick to crouch and O to melee. Being able to jump and melee without taking your fingers of the sticks has been a huge advantage. It at least helps you close the gap on 2 of the 3 advantages those mouse/keyboard modders have on console FPS. It's baffling how Sony and MS haven't cut Cinch, Scuff, Sharq, and all the others out of the equation by making their own controllers with programmable under-buttons.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I can't play a competitive fps without having R3 as crouch. I'd love to have an extra button on the bottom for melee but it always gets defaulted to circle for me because it's the only button available for it with everything else taking priority. It's good that controller is still holding strong for you considering the price. :tup:

  8. Overall I like the collection for the new back piece this LWS3 ep, but I hope they don't make this the standard for the expac. Its cool to have a few here and there, but just one is causing the same type of issues that legendary journeys too... My inventory is cluttered with BS because I have to hold on to useless crap and turn them all in at the same time instead of as I get them. Even with max bags I've overburned my inventory twice today.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      T1-3 isn't bad because you can turn everything in as you get them, but for some reason T4 you have to turn in like 4 at a time. I probably would have waited on doing some of these if I would have known. I have like 6 things in my inventory waiting to be fused with druid stones, including the 2 I already fused and can turn in until I fuse the right other 2.

      Thankfully the Hidden Garden one is just a orchard to the side, and none of the JP is required. I'm so tired of doing that damn thing. BTW when you start planting seeds, don't leave immediately. Fire Orchard nodes pop for you to mine after you plant them.

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

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

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

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

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

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

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

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

  10. 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.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      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.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      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

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

  12. RIP Jerry Lewis. I remember watching Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis movies when I was young. He made me laugh as a child.

      I still want to see The Day the Clown Cried. Apparently he donated a copy to the Library of Congress in 2015 with a 10 year stay on it. It wont be until 2025 before anyone has a chance to view it, and even then there are a bunch of issues with the rights. He never wanted anyone to ever see it... at least while he was alive.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      R.I.P. Jerry. I'll always remember watching his telethons when i was a kid.

      I somehow did not know about that movie The Day the Clown Cried until I read about it just now. I looked up some details about it and the basis of that movie sounds like nothing he'd ever do. Now I'm intrigued by it because it supposedly ends tragically.

  13. Sadly I had to give some money to Gamestop for a Pro Controller. I really wanted a charging grip, but no one has them and when they come up, people snatch them up so fast you don't even get the email notification you signed up for that they're available. I wish people would wait instead of giving money to resellers on Ebay. If they all got burnt, no one would do this stupid garbage. I've been trying to help a friend get a preorder on a Switch, but every time someone posts on reddit that someone it taking preorders they are gone within 8 minutes of the post. Its amazing how people can dedicate their time and sit there all day hitting refresh on every retailer site and reddit.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Its Nintendo's fault for consistently making a small supply of every product. Nintendo probably has the largest share of video game products resold on ebay. Even now on ebay the majority of the resold Switchs are being sold for $450+. I've read plenty of articles and forum topics on places like cheap ass gamer and others where people openly talk about how they would buy the maximum of a game when it goes on sale for resale. Same with consoles, unless there is a limit on the site, there are people that will drop $2k on as many consoles they can order to sell on ebay because they could easily make a 75% profit on their investment.

      I guarantee the website everyone on reddit is looking at is this:

      https://www.nowinstock.net/videogaming/consoles/nintendoswitch/

      Don't look at reddit, watch this site instead. Bots constantly refresh the seller's sites to see when something is available again. Once it is, it'll be on this first, then 5 mins later will show up on reddit after someone get their pre-order secured. This is the site I looked at religiously when I was pre-ordering my PS4 and it worked great for me.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Pfft, Pro Controllers. Who uses those? :P

      Meh, this is why you don't pre-order consoles. It's just not worth the hassle trying to find a place to get a pre-order at and who needs a console at launch honestly (especially with the lack of launch titles the Switch even has)? This is why I wait a few months until stores get more stock in before I buy my consoles (worked wonders for when I bought my PS4 (though I did have to go to 4 different stores before I finally found one that had them in stock (ironically it was Wal-Mart in which I could of just bought one at the one I worked at))). Ironically I love how Nintendo said there wouldn't be a stock shortage for this launch and we already have one a month before its release. GG Nintendo, way to drop the ball again.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I must play Zelda tho XD. No one has the charging grip, and gamestop was the only one with the pro controller in stock. I'm not waiting 3 hours for the joy cons to charge the day I get my Switch. I'm gonna boot it up and play immediately. As far as I know the only way the Joycons charge is via the charging grip or connecting it to the switch in mobile mode, but docked. I'm not playing on a small screen either while I wait for Joy Cons to charge. Sure they'll have some juice in them upon arrival, but probably a few hours at best.

  14. Saw Guns N Roses last night. What an amazing show. They may be old now, but they still put on one of the best concerts I've ever seen. Axl can still hit those high notes, but you can def tell they were spacing the more vocally intense songs out between their softer ones. It didn't matter. I got to see Slash live and he delivered. Plus watching Axl play piano while Slash did his thing during November Rain reminded me of a time when artists were actually musicians and not auto-tuned pretty faces.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Lucky you. I'd really love to see them live especially since I love most of their catalog and because Slash is one of my all time favorite guitarists (I'm happy to see Axl and Slash put aside their differences for this, GNR isn't GNR without those two in my opinion).

  15. Settled on a 1060 card... paid $100 more than what it was selling for a few months ago, but I'm left with no choice with how my current card is acting at times. I basically only every play GW2 anyways an its good enough for it.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Nice. XD And good luck with your graphics card. Hopefully geforce wont screw up your video clips with lag like I've been experiencing for over a month now. x_x

      I probably wont record. XD Yeah the pressure was on. Normally I tag up and no one joins me when we do it with TTS. I did the shrouded ruins WP as usual and soloed it the entire time pretty much. If I would have been on my guard It would have failed because I wouldn't have had enough DPS to kill everything before the meter filled. I barely made it out on the 2nd to last attack phase with a 95% meter. X_X I had 3-4 join my squad but no one was on the camp until the last phase before choppers. Then I said I was doing Pat and next thing I know I have more than 20 people in my squad, so I'm like "I can't die or get downed at all!" XD I even helped on Pile of Guano afterward to look more bad ass. XD

  16. 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.

      I only have 5k unbound magic tho. I still have to max out my karma boost and it'll cost me 5k unbound magic and 200 bloodstone rubies for that ascended back pack with viper stats... Yeah I'm thinking about making that viper set for my necro again. XD

  18. So I preordered the standard edition of Destiny 2. I'll let you know if downloading the Beta is worth it since I'll get early access. I have a feeling there might not be any open world like D1. They haven't shown any at all if you think about it. They'll probably just be a strike, the first mission, and PvP. I hope I'm wrong, because I'd rather just run around a map and test out weapons more than anything else.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      My biggest interest going into this beta is class diversity. I just saw where Hunter has a trait line where the staff does double damage per hit and they were just destroying the Titan during their shield ult. A rock paper scissors approach would be nice. Although Warlock still looks like the master race. I doubt I'll use dawnblade much though. I'm in love with blink... and with my custom controller I'll really love it. (beaing able to jump, crouch, AND melee without ever taking your thumbs off the sticks is so underrated) Void Walker is what I'll be testing out most of the time. You hunter mains can be jealous of Titan and Warlock super jumps, but I like Warlocks shortest jump the best. XD Interesting how they took blink away from Hunter though, and they basically split the Titan bubble ability between the Titan and Warlock. Those Warlock rifts are going to be super powerful in group content. But Warlock gets a lot more utility than everyone else. In some sort of shitty trinity Titan is Tank, Hunter is DPS, and Warlock is a support god that can tank and DPS it feels like. In D1 Titan was a Tank and Support and Warlocks and Hunters were DPSers. Bungie doesn't have the trinity down right it feels like.... I would say Warlock got the GW2 Elementalist treatment from John Ryan, but he doesn't even work for Bungie anymore. Probably for the best... we don't need a Trahearne in D2. XD

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      They need to get the voice actor of Trahearne to play the ghost and every time you need to interact with something it'll say "Guardian, a word please." XD

  19. So I'm lazy and I'm getting old to where I can't really stand to wear contact for +20 hours a day anymore. I've had cheap ass back up glasses for 2 years ever since I got a viral pink eye and couldn't wear contacts for a week. Needless to say, they def weren't meant for heavy long term use. One pair already had the lens coating dry up and chip away, and the pair I'm wearing now has one of the lenses hanging on for dear life. My first and only decent pair of glasses were purchased back in 2003... they were almost $500 at the time. Compared to the $180 I paid for the two pair I've gone through in 2 years. I went to day and dropped $360 on titanium flex frames with Nikon HD transition lenses. I guess glasses tech has become a little cheaper since 2003 because these have more features than my first pair. (Yes I'm aware of the artificial price inflation of glasses) 

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats better at least. Transitions made me rage so hard I never got them again. Back when I did alot of car work, my glasses would near instantly tint up because of the sunlight, but then I'd take a tire off, start looking at the brakes and realized I couldn't see shit in the shade because my glasses were to dark. Same with getting under the car. It was like wearing sunglasses constantly without being able to turn them off because it would take at least 5 mins to un-tint if they even did because of how much sunlight was outside even if I was in the shade. I wait a bit, start looking at the brake caliper, realized I needed a different size socket, reached for one, reach back and boom my glasses were full on tint again. Oh how that pissed me off. lol. Meanwhile my dad loves his transitions and hes had them on all his glasses since transitions was first introduced and swears by them.

      My current glasses have a Crizal coating. I'll only get this crizal from now on. It is superior anti-glare for driving at night and for staring at a computer monitor all day. I have had less eye strain for the last 2 years I've been using it, which helps since I was getting ocular migraines for a while. I've only had one of those migraines in the last 2 years where I was getting them at least 2-3 times a year. Driving at night is the most noticeable difference with it. Headlights will still have a flare to them, but all my other glasses made driving at night the equivilant of a J.J. Abrams movie. XD Lens flare everywhere and headache inducing.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      ROTFLMAO! XD I'll keep these as backup in my car again if that ever happens. I had this pair under the passenger side sun visor. I'm not paying for Rx sunshades, or using one of those 80s clip ons. XD The sun would always be in my eyes when I worked morning shifts, but I don't have those anymore really. As soon as I don't get transition, I'll have a life changing event where the sun is glaring in my eyes driving down the road each morning again.

      I thought it was pretty cool they weren't like "YES YOU NEED THIS" though. It was an extra $60. The vision center is like a different world from Wal-Mart. They're always so nice and caring.

      LOL. The transitions annoyed me while driving too. XD The transition effect is nice but it doesn't cut sun glare while driving like sunglasses at all. And most car glass blocks the UV so the transitions effect won't kick in at all. Your car might be a 2004, but did the windshield ever get replaced by safelite before because of a crack? If so, expect no transition effect. :P I use those 80s style clip on sunglasses. XD My current glasses came with a magnetic clip on one that is more discreet than others, but I have an extra clip on one in my kitchen for when I walk around the yard in the sun.

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

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

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

      That could be a good plot twist.

  21. Someone already 3 manned Destiny's new raid and I heard the story was really short. I don't get people that still put money into this game.

      I think its been a year since I last played Destiny and even though I told myself I'd watch the raids on youtube because I know I'd never play them, but I never did. And I have no interest in watching them even now. I highly doubt I'll ever buy a Destiny 2. The newest raid with the bulldozer thing does look pretty cool, but only cool enough to watch a couple clips of it and move on to the next thing. I don't mind grinding in a game to an extent as long as I'm not bored. If I'm grinding a MMO like guild wars 2, I have the game muted and I'm watching TV while gathering items for gold. But grinding in a FPS game like Destiny is never going to happen for me again. It takes up all my attention because of the nature of the encounters and gameplay. I did it initially because I thought it was a one time grind, get my gear maxed out and I'd be set to enjoy the game with new content releases. Nope. Every dlc/expansion meant all my grinding was pointless. I'm never doing that again. Thats way too much of a time sink for me.

      The RNG and raid exclusive weapons were also the worst I've ever seen in any game. I don't mind seeing exclusive looking weapon skins from doing raid content but when people get rewarded with exclusive weapons with noticeable advantages it leaves me feeling salty. I still remember getting torn up by a vex mythoclast in those early year 1 iron banners, same with the original gally. Aside from that first week gally was in the xur shop, we never saw it again for a year. Only the early access people got enough coin saved up fast enough to buy it that week. In hindsight I think it might have been done completely intentionally so all their early alpha testers and youtubers that were promoting the game would get it guaranteed because they knew the value of it and had enough time to get the coins needed.

      The plan, from what I’ve heard, is for Destiny 2's planet areas to feel more populated with towns, outposts, and quests that are more interesting than the patrol missions you can get in Destiny.

      Honestly, this is what I expected from the first game. And to succeed on PC, their going to have to make a completely different game. It damn well better be a Diablo 2 style improvement over Diablo. If the Anet talent picked up early last year still has his creative pull, maybe it will be a better solo experience. Renown Hearts coming to Destiny!XD

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lmao. Their own version of Renown Hearts might actually happen. XD

      Towns, outposts, quests, (ambient life), NPC quests.. all that should have been in Destiny 1. If Destiny 2 is really going to be a 'totally different game' then I'll definitely wait on playing it (if I do at all), until the first 2 or 3 expansions come out a year after the game is released and is no longer in beta quality. Even then there will be other games in my backlog at that point like Fallout 4 or some other RPG FPS games.

  22. Sometimes its laughable how bad western entertainment can mangle/misunderstand or don't care to even try to be accurate with eastern content to this day. I just watched a "Top 10" Godzilla villains video where the rules were that no one that was a frequent ally would be included in the list... and then they put King Caesar who was never a villain save for one time he was being mind controlled. I mean wtf? He's a huge ally in one of the most memorable movies in the whole damn franchise... and then they pick Anguirus?! Literally Godzilla's best friend lore-wise? Because they fought in 1 film as enemies, and another again being mind controlled. If that wasn't enough, Rodan was an honorable mention yet again breaking their rule for those not to be included. The rest of the list was spot on.. ironically Mechagodzilla was #2 (rightfully so) where they heavily emphasized the first film over the new age ones... you know... where Caesar was an ally. XD What a train wreck. At least King Ghidorah was #1. Gigan and Destoroyah rounded up the top 4. The commentator called Destoroyah "Destroyah". -_-;

      "DESTROYER" XD Even the dubs can't get it right. XD

      XD They probably thought the Japanes misspelled Destroyer or something. XD

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

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

      That sounds good. I'll give it a try then. :P

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

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

  24. Started TellTale's TWD a few days ago. I def wouldn't have been able to enjoy this on console. It just works for PC much better. The story is pretty good so far, but I really hope I can let Larry die, because I will the first chance I get. XD

      Just wait until you play season 2. It's even better. But damn I do miss Lee. That dude was awesome. He was one of the best characters I've seen in a game in years. When I was watching "fear the walking dead" I had recently beaten this game. They accomplished in that game what would have been an amazing tv series. And the TV series we got instead was a big mess of a failure. I had a significantly bigger emotional attachment to these game characters that I felt horrible when something happened to them. But in Fear TWD any if these characters can get killed off and I wouldn't give a damn.

      Kinda like KOTOR vs. the Ep I-III XD

  25. 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

      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.
