    The Chauchat (French LMG) was shit in real life. It was notorious for jamming because dirt would get in its open air mag feed. Now that I have a steady team I play Overwatch with, this game has taken a back seat. I love battlefield and the game itself is fun to a degree. But you're right about the nade spam, which I can deal with until is gas spam. Hilariously the biggest issue with the game is the hard counter to the most abundant elite class.
    BF1, and Operations in general is a lot less forgiving when your team is full of morons. People opening doors when they shouldn't, picking wrong vehicles for situations. That tank Behemoth is going to be super OP... not because it's actually OP, but because no one takes out tanks to begin with, so I don't see anyone being bothered to take a more beastly one down. Sucks for the few people like me that would swap to assault just to get rid of a tank.
    Maybe I'm just getting old and impatient with other players, because its affecting me in just about every game I play these days. Even my beloved GW2 when people are just pressing auto attack and expecting to get carried to victory by my guild, and then blames my guild when we failed the hardest world boss in the damn game because they can't be bothered to learn basic DPS rotations for their class, join teamspeak just to fucking listen, no one is asking anyone to talk, or read simple instructions in map chat between burn phases. Shit, I even learned how to be a decent Lucio in Overwatch because I got tired of people skating around not spamming heal off CD during team battles and pushes. I've even been getting in some Genji lately. This is probably one of the main reasons I'm looking forward to the onslaught of epic single player games coming out the next few weeks.

    I'm probably going to be in the minority on this but I'm not overly impressed with what we're getting in this DLC. While the maps sound fun and look to be fun as hell the weapons are extremely disappointing imo (I know nothing of their real life counterparts but the LMG sounds shitty based on the info Level gave in his video, the Assaults new weapon sounds okay, the Scouts could be good but honestly won't know until we get stats, and the Medics weapon doesn't sound overly bad but who knows. The new pistol seems like it's going to be a new tanker/pilot weapon and the new melee weapons are meh except for the sword dagger thing), I'm not liking the sounds of the new Elite class (yay, more grenade spam. Just what BF1 needed was more grenade spam), the new Behemoth is about the only real thing I'm interested in (I hope its completely controllable and not set on rails, we really need a behemoth that can actually doing something more then be a bullet sponge), and while I'm happy we're getting two new operations I sense I'm going to get sick of them within a week of playing them.
    My only real hope is that this ribbon system goes into effect and adds some progression to this game (not much sadly but more then we got now). Sadly I have a feeling BF1 is going to be sitting on my HDD taking up space until the second DLC comes along. I hate to say it but I'm just not feeling the BF1 anymore, really thinking about going back to BF4 and deleting BF1 to make room for more games (like Horizon and ME).

    Dragon Age 2, when the Chantry is destroyed.  I never wanted to reach into a computer and bitch slap someone as hard as I did at that moment!

    Well that was a pretty damn good season finale. Ivar kills Sigurd in a blind rage. I think his solidifies Ivar as an unstable madman, but a genius at the same time after his battle tactics work to dismantle the Saxon army. Ivar is turning out to be one of the biggest characters in on the show, and he replaces Rangar's late life personality which had an unpredictable nature. Its clear a major chunk of next season will focus around him and his conquest of England.
    The other part of next season will focus around King Harald and Lagertha. Harald brother no doubt wants to accompany Bjorn to keep him distracted while Harald focuses on Kattegat. Looking at the previews, it seems somehow Torvi survived being a pin cushion. The death of Ragnar has causes instability. Harald being the King of Norway, I assume Rangar was the king of Sweden. Its nevey really stated, but thats where he was born. Kattegat is actually a sea, that's more of a bay between Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.
    I didn't think the show could go on after all the deaths, but maybe it can for at least another two seasons. The warrior bishop is intriguing enough. I wonder what is going to become of Floki in all of this.

    Will Divinity's Reach become the new post Scarlet Lions Arch? With Queen Jennah be slain? Will Logan Thackery ever get well? Will he join Braham in newly forged emo alliance? Or will Swordsmaster Faren return from Verdant Brink to save us all?

    Dragon's Stand is probably the longest meta event in the game as of right now and I took a video of it the other day if anyone wants to see the chain of events that leads to one of the largest world bosses in a MMORPG. Or if you want to skip right to the boss, go to the 52 minute mark. Normally this boss takes alot longer to beat as it destroys the islands we stand on, but the TTS guild is damn good at destroying it quickly.

    I've bought loot boxes every festival, and got at least 2 of the legendary skins each time. BF1 loot box system is so garbage by comparison. X_x
    EDIT: I've gotten all the legendary skins except D.Va. I don't really care to get it because her outfit looks funky (FASHION!). I was complaining to friends the other day how she has gotten any good skins since Summer Games. But I'm not impressed with a wooden mech. All the other skins are fantastic. I got Reinhardt, Winston, and Roadhog from boxes and I bought the Zenyatta one with my coins. I'd like to get that tracer one as well, but I'm not going to spend on it even though it's not 3000c.

    But as Myk pointed out, the wolf is just a skin for Dogs. I forgot about it after I watched a 20min play through. You can befriend dogs and they'll do the same thing. So it's really not some extra character for having the Amiibo, it's just another skin. 
    If a $3 Amiibo unlocked dlc like an extra dungeons, I'd probably pick it up so long as there wasn't like 10 a game. Paying $6-9 for some extra content is better than $15 for an hour mission like some other games.

    Technically it's the same season as "last season" Its still season 4 as weird as that is. The vikings are a bunch of whores. "Oh you cheated on me, I hope it was enjoyable" wtf? So many love triangles going on right now, no one has the right to be pissed at Ragnar.
    The difference for Floki was that the Muslims were worshiping an invisible god to him. The Christians had all there symbols like the golden crucifix and what not. When he saw the Muslims praying, there was no symbols, statues, or emblems. I think it was confusing more than anything else for him. Plus they didn't fight back with an army like the Saxons.

    I'm guessing that Wolf Link has the same role as the dogs in BotW. So you don't have to buy the Wolf Link Amiibo in order to get that in game function.
    I have my doubts that Nintendo is getting rid of Amiibos since they made Amiibos for BotW. Especially if Switch controllers have Amiibo readers. Seems like unneeded hardware if they were.
    As for Miiverse, I never got involved in that. I don't know if no Miiverse means no Miis. But I wouldn't miss the Miis if they were gone. The Xbox Avatars look way better. And PS Home Avatars were the best looking out of the three, but they those were tied to PS Home.

    The Wii U version will be available with all the DLC. So it's like a game of the year edition with even more tracks and characters from splatoon.

    While I have no real opinion on the differences of the two versions of the new Zelda game I thought I'd throw my two cents into the PS4 comparison. Nintendo has never been about making a powerful console, we all know this (the only reason they did so well was the games on the original NES and SNES). Compare the Gamecube (Nintendo's last good console imo) to the PS2 and the XBox, it was way under-powered compared to the other two systems and yet it was probably the best console out of the three (yea, I say this having been one of the biggest PS2 fanboys on the planet but the Gamecube had some of the most fun games I've ever laid my hands on and by far one of the most tense games ever as well (Eternal Darkness, this game was amazing for its time people. I still remember the time it made my friend think it was deleting his save file)). Nintendo has been about solid games that are fun to play for both adults and kids, sadly they lost sight of that with the Wii-U which is why it sold so badly (well besides it being a re-skin of the much more successful Wii with slightly different hardware). The Switch is a nice change because it's going back to what Nintendo does right while still trying to innovate (something we've not yet seen from Sony of Microsoft, try as you might upgrading the hardware every 4-8 years isn't innovation (or should I say 2-3 now with this stupid shift to 4k consoles now). All Sony and Microsoft do is copy what works for other companies (motion control which, lets face it, was a lot better and better optimized with the Wii. VR is another, something PC does so much better but god forbid its not on console) and tries to re-skin it as their idea). Yea it's gimmicky as hell (I'm sorry that 3 hour battery life is somewhat of a downer. I was hoping more for 5-6, Nintendo has got to have the ability for this since they've been pioneering handheld tech for decades now), graphics are really no better then Wii/360 graphics, and yet again it's another console screwing the consumer on hd space but I honestly think this will work out for Nintendo. The only major problems they're going to have is the lack of launch titles. Zelda is only going to get them so far (if it doesn't get delayed).
    At best Skyrim will probably look like it would on a PC running it on low settings (maybe medium) based on the specs of the system. I'm happy to see the Switch is getting some big name games but Skyrim is probably not the best title to be running on this system. Plus a fall release is pretty retarded, the game has been out for years now and while the Special Edition did garner it some more life I really don't see many people running out their doors to pick up a Switch to play Skyrim (where you know the thing will have a 1 hour battery life if you try to play it un-docked with this game).

    Now that I'm not at work. The cel shading in this game isn't as cartoony as Windwaker. I use to be a big hater of Cel shade, but overtime I've become indifferent to it as long as it's used in the right capacity. Windwaker was an outstanding game, and its a shame that was overshadowed by its graphical choice. BoTW uses more of a Borderland's style which is one I'm pretty fond of. With how underpowered Switch will be, and its need to operate for almost 3 hours minium in portable mode, I'd expect more than less Cel shade games in Nintendo's future. Its less demanding... while by all accounts it uses the same polygons, it uses less colors. The trick is to make something beautiful out of it. I remember a racing game by the name of Auto Modellista that was cel shaded and it was a pretty great game... plus it made the car customization pretty fun as well.
    I posted about an MMO called Soul Worker solely because of its cel shade graphics and how amazingly close they look to anime. I think the technology has come a long way since Windwaker and that TMNT gamecube game.
    I'm more surprised that there isn't a big fuss about character's using real language to talk.... but then I looked up skyward sword and apparently it was used there first... and from what I saw, the voice acting is very bad. It seems better for this game.
