    I'm for the spotting changes because I'm a stealth player and I hate how every game has tried their hardest to take away complete map invisibility. I can only imagine how many of my BF deaths came from someone spamming the spot button non stop and picking me up trying to flank around the back of enemy lines.

    Another free weekend is coming up. The state of the game has altered a little since the last. Soldier, McCree, Bastion, and Mei had their damage fall off ranges buffed, making the Phara and Mercy combo non existent (thank god). Phara is a lot weaker now, and so is Mercy as her healing was nerfed back to what it was when the game first came out. This means a lot of the lower DPS characters can't be out healed by a pocket mercy. Ana's ult has been buffed, I've been playing a lot more of her when people are willing to Rein up for me. I've enjoyed it immensely. Her and Brigitte are the best support counters to Doomfist and Wreckingball to stop their mobility. Lucio's aura has been buffed to be bigger and his Ult now can cancel out every Ult except D.Va's on 200HP characters. Brigitte has been nerfed since the last go, her shield bash CD is now 7 seconds from the 5 it was. I personally thought the 6 second buff was enough. She's not as powerful as she originally was, but is still effective on the right maps. Moira is still an absolute monster and my favorite character to play. Her healing mist got buffed to regen 20% faster, so you can throw out more death orbs instead of solely relying on your healing orbs to keep the team up. It doesn't seem like much, but I'd say I went from throwing 30/70% death/heal orbs to 60/40%. With McCree back in the meta, it does hurt her ult as he can easily cancel it out with a stun flank. Brigitte was the main counter but you could easily keep your distance from her stun.  D.Va is still the best tank by far, and its not even close. Her rocket barrage that was added before the last free weekend has given her the DPS boost she needs to defend herself against high DPS targets, and harass other tanks. With the mobility nerfs to Widow and Hanzo they've seen a downard thrust in play, but I have no doubt no one will experience that next weekend as all the n00b try hards will instantly go for them and get fucking deleted by anyone decent with Zen, Ana, D.Va, Soldier, and even Lucio. Solider and McCree can also harass snipers off their perches with ease now as well. Junkrat is very meta in mid and lower tiers, as a lot of people try max shield bunker on choke point maps like King's Row and Volskaya. He also does work on Brigitte as her smaller shield can't handle his bombs, your trap can snare her shield bash, and his concussion mind can easily be thrown over her defenses.

    I want to be excited for this game, but honestly It completely dropped out of my mind the last few months. The lack of ammo is going to change after launch, and they should just change it now TBH. But they wont. They'll wait until people stop playing like they always do to fix stuff. They don't even have to give everyone a max stack, just maybe 20% more. I get why they want it to be like it is, but its too extreme. Only 3 mags with a SMG? Thats 3-4 kills before you're out. Scout can stay the same becasue 15 rounds is no less than 10 kills for a good player. I'm curious if you can resupply yourself because that's what is going to happen.. everyone is going to be playing support and no one will play medic or assault. Tanks will run wild because of it. They fix the sniper problem and create a whole new one. I just read preorders are really weak right now. At least I won't be paying $100 for a game that will have a low player count 6 months after launch. It doesn't help they were assholes about the first trailer. Causing PR nightmares before you game launches isn't the best approach.

    This is the first time I bought one of these at launch. I was a bit disgruntled after only being able to play Ep 1 as I'm use to all the eps being available.
    The first ep was good. A lot of character building. Having AJ with me and watching def made me think more about my choices in dialog. I tried to be more fair and reasonable. This first ep was more about relationship development with the new cast. There was a lot of choices to be made, but I don't think any would have been super impactful for the overall arc. The end was pretty brutal though. And AJ is a little shit, I kinda wish he died in the last season . #TeamKenny

    I bet it'll be a 3 hour movie and the first 2 hours will be character buildup of the new boxer character and his struggles with raising a child while trying to work a job and have a boxing career. Slowly they'll bring in some other human mortal kombat characters and in the final hour explain some elaborate tournament and introduce 18 more characters a ninja army and a bunch of aliens in a train wreck of a final hour.. but the best scene will be in the last fight when the boxer has a flash back to him telling his kid something while he throws that perfect finishing punch that saves all of earth.
    There... now I can skip this movie.

    Recovery of an MMO Junkie (and yes the original title is literally the translation, that's what its called in Japan) is a pure gem, I watched it as it aired and instantly fell in love with it. Probably my favorite show for that season (I still haven't watched Ancient Magus's Bride or Black Clover yet (which started during that season)). It's was nice to finally have an MMO related anime title that didin't deal with being stuck in a game and focused more on the players and what went in their actual lives. Not only that Morioka is such an adorable character it's hard not to love her (plus I admire her commitment to quiting her job just to play video games, something I wish I could do (damn debt and not ever having any money >.<)). I'm with DX, definitely worth a watch if you're looking for a lighthearted show with good comedy and a good story.

    They stayed faithful to the Ghidorah roars, this makes me extremely happy.

    Recommendation of the Wonderful Virtual Life/Recovery of an MMO Junkie
    Clearly this title was just renamed, I guess for length purpose as the first is what it translates too, and the later is what the English title for the show is. The show is about the main character Moriko Morioka living the recluse life, quitting her corporate job just to play an MMO all day. She plays as male character and eventually befriends a female character who is a male, Yuta Sakurai, that has a respectable job. The show is full of impossible coincidences as Sakurai and Morioka were unknowingly good friends in a different MMO back when she was working and he was graduating college. By chance they run into each other on a side walk literally and the story takes off. Also insert Sakurai's friend Homare Koiwai who just so happened to have worked with Morioka at her previous job.
    This show is precious. I really loved it. For once its nice to have an anime about adults, especially in this genre. It also doesn't stick to the cliche antics romantic comedies normally have, and its completely void of fan service. Morioka, Sakurai, and Koiwai are such great characters with great chemistry. The story actually spends more time outside of the game than in, which is nice. Morioka and Sakurai are both socially awkward and shy. Koiwai is outgoing and is always trying to help Sakurai even if its in a teasing way.  It provides plenty of laughs, and fun moments. I recommend this to anyone looking for a lighthearted watch.

    I'll be on Episode 10 tomorrow. I've never cried so hard of laughter from any anime than Fumoffu. The Karate Club faceoff is my favorite scene of all time. This season, Tessa saying "You're a piece of shit so fuck you, and go to hell" was outstanding. I don't know how that line went on the sub, but thats how it was translated on the dub. I do like how Invisible Victory legitimized Fumoffu by having the Student Council President make an appearance.
    Hopefully that Funi/Crunchy money will speak to Nakayama and Xebec. Even if they get a different director, I think Xebec has proven they can handle the animation... just don't do any more car chases. I can't say I've seen anyone else animate being shot so viscerally. Its not easy to be a different studio and preserve character design integrity, especially after so many years... you can end up with a DBGT Vegeta. Tessa, Chidori, Sousuke, Kurz, Mao, Kalinin, and Mardukas all looked spot on.

    God damn what a ride is all I have to say. Definitely my favorite season of the four we currently have (Fumoffu taking second). I love the dark tone this season set and all the major developments we got in such a short amount of time (especially for a 12 episode season, though those fucking recap episodes and that 2 week wait between episodes 10 and 11 sucked balls), plus god damn do I love the *will not say till others have seen it*. Such a beautiful piece of *again will not say till others have seen*. I have to say I really hope this gets green lit for another season but I don't think that will be for awhile. If I remember correctly the novel isn't much further past how this season ends (which I'd love to talk about but I don't want to ruin it for you all) so it might be a waiting game again (I'll have to check, my friend reads the light novel so he'll be able to tell me).

    Nothing is better than BBQ that is given the full time to develop. People don't understand why top tier BBQ can be more expensive compared to other food. You're paying for the time and mastery it took to make it. There was a place we had here, where they smoked the pulled pork for 26 hours. It was to die for, but the guy recently had to close shop because he had cancer and wouldn't be around much longer.

    Honestly if they plan on doing it right, there is no way you can make this without it being a trilogy. Pretty much all of the ones with child pilots won't be picked to adapt. I'd love for them to do 08th MS team TBH. But they'll probably come up with what you said. Some half shit story that takes bits of pieces from random gundam series. If they want an emotionless pilot just let Keanu Reeves do it.

    They really had to nerf spotting because WW2 maps won't be too much different. BF1 maps were kind of more like WW2 maps anyways. What ever city maps we get, wont compare to the city maps of BF3-4. We might have taken too much of a break from modern. I'm still not on the ultra modern train, I'd much rather have a 80-90s type modern game. My biggest concern is the crouch running. I don't want to press the joystick twice to get up or start running like when BF1 launched. I hope couch running is the most inconvenient to access. If you mash sprint on the joystick from prone, you should get up and sprint, if you want to sprint while crouched, you should have to get into that position first. Or even better, make it a setting. All these shooters with presets are really irritating me ever since Overwatch made button layouts fully customizable... not only as a standard, but you can customize the controls for each individual hero. If you want to shoot with the options button and jump with the left D-pad, you could do it in Overwatch, so its possible on consoles.

    The worse thing that can happen to this game is for people to think its like Destiny. From what I see, the only thing they have in common is a sci-fi setting. I guess Destiny was the precursor for this type of genre, but what I see is a more futuristic Division. Loot drops as what they are, instead of an RNG ball you have to go turn in. Also it seems to drop way more fequently, like the guy playing clearly skipped another purple drop after he got that pistol. The abilities and cooldown interface is more like the Division, and are abilities rather than a grenade and a melee.
    I do like the 1 character, and multiple suits. The loot table is going to favor what you're using, but things can still drop for another Javelin. Since you don't have to swap and make more characters, It actually works to where you can put that loot to the side or install it on the other suit and build it up as you play on your main equipment. Going back to the abundant drops. I hope this game drops loot like candy. I much rather have a borderlands type system where there is so much shit, its overwhelming, while there is still a sense that you can get a god roll piece of gear. Nothing was more disheartening in D1 when you grind out that strike on hard only to get a blue, or a purple you already had... 3 weeks in a row. Hell, even Mass Effect 1-3 had a better wealth of guns than Destiny. This is BioWare... (not the BW that made Andromeda). They have a solid history of loot tables going back to KOTOR. If we can continue that tradition, I think it will be fine.
