    XBOX Series X

    This video has calmed me down I think.

    Humble Bundle

    https://www.humblebundle.com/games/you-can-pet-dog This is decent. Shenmue 1 & 2 for $4.80. Only a couple days left for this bundle though. I had Shenmue 1 for the Dreamcast but I had a bad disk because it would crash on me all the time so I never got the chance to get more than a couple hours into at the time.

    It might as well be fake until Bethesda reveals the playable races.
  5. Whoever is in charge of making the OPs for Fruits Basket from the animation to picking the music has consistently killed it. I'd say S1OP2 is my least favorite, probably because the first OP is my favorite and set the bar so high... this one comes close if not ties it. Simply breathtaking.
  6. Super hyped and can't freaking wait. Thank god it's next year, don't think I'd be able to find the time this year between finishing up Amalur, Cyberpunk in Nov, and whenever they decide to release the second Pokemon Sword/Shield DLC (yes, I still play Pokemon. Don't judge me).

  8. ^ yeah they are kinda small but have some weight on it too. im guessing the middle one has some real gold mixed in it or something. the guy also found old bills/banknotes in a very good condition from europe, china, and other unknown origins (looked like greek or russian letters..not sure) in an single envelope lol. one of them had "Berlin 1910" on it, only a few ones that we can able to read lol, very cool.
  9. Those are pretty damn cool looking.

    XBOX Series X

    I now have mixed or indifferent feelings towards the following news. My "loyalty" lied with Bethesda until November 2017 and has been slowly dying ever since. Edit: Here is another video.
  11. Street Fighter V was free last month. I loaded it up for the first time, played 4 matches and now my forearms are on fire... yeah I'm too old for this. XD

    1. Sledgstone


      Same with me. I tried playing Injustice last week... I couldn't get past the tutorial ten minutes in. XD

    2. DeathscytheX


      The whole thing is so complex now. You have the traditional weak to strong punches and kicks. and now there is these V-moves, and throws, counter throws. The timing is way more precise because the jumps feel so short. I really didn't enjoy it. I still like games like Smash Bros because of its simplicity in move sets but depth because of it. But I guess just moving two sticks around and mashing shoulder buttons atrophied my gaming muscles from the SNES/Genesis days. I use to have a callus on my thumb from fighting games.

      Competitive gaming really sucked the fun out of the fighting genre for me... much like it has the FPS scene.

      I loved street fighter 2 back in the day. I had that callus to. XD if street fighter V sounds overly complex like Injustice. My hands aren't what they used to be and my controller is 5 years old and sucks. XD competitive gamers can have the genre I guess.. onto one of my other 200 games in my back log. XD

      I do like smash bros but last one if those I played was on gamecube. I bet the more recent one costs a thousand dollars to buy all the characters via DLC. That in itself sucks the fun out of all the fighting games to.

    Vintage Pocket Watches

    i have a customer who works at storage units and he is allowed to keep valuables and throw away junks. he finds all sorts of things, pretty cool stuff. anyway he got fed up with ppl he was trying to sell old pocket watches he found so he sold them to me real cheap lol. gotta say, $70 each wasnt such a bad deal. top to bottom, copper one "columbia usa" dates back to 1896-1899. they all have serial numbers and he showed me how to identify them online. gold one "elgin" has inscription, obviously a gift from a mother to her son with 1924 on it. they both work (i have to wind em up) except silver one, another "elgin", havent checked its date yet, but he gave me that one for free. 😛
  13. I played a few hours of the Alpha. I enjoyed it but I knew going in that the AK74u and M16 were super OP. After trying some other guns, I just stuck with those. The AK74u needs a nerf, but the M16 is fine I think. Its still a burst with a delay. Matches were fast paced, lots of action. Not many campers. The score streaks were a grind to get... I'm kind glad we took a step back from doors everywhere. The slide motion felt more fluid. I'm not happy they nerfed drop shotting but not bunny hopping. They should nerf both or neither. If you drop to prone when you're shooing your gun automatically kicks out of ADS to hipfire. This is BS when you can hop around corners and stay in ADS. The Desert map is kinda trash. Everyone wants to snipe, and sniping is a bit too easy in this game. It was a little annoying at first but then I got put against a coordinated team that basically spawn trapped us by sniping and having one or two guys running back and forth to spawn flip. It was very disorienting and at times you'd spawn and get domed immediately. Def the least fun match of the night.
  14. Cellular service has become more shit the more advance the technology has become. I went through Hurricane Ivan and Katrina.. both Cat 4-5 storms with extreme wind damage and didn't have any loss of service the entire time, even with the power off for a week. Sally rolls through almost 2 decades later as a cat 2 hurricane and cellular service is unreliable for many people in my area. I wish SMS could work off WIFI like calls can, because having to rely on some shit tower that might be too far off or isn't operational is irritating.

    1. Sledgstone


      I hate SMS never using wifi. I downloaded google messages app and use it as my sms program because it's supposed to work over wifi when cell service isn't available. It should technically work but it's completely unreliable imo. I had wifi calling on all the time under the advanced calling setting but it would never make the call over wifi because I always had 1 crap 3g bar of connection that it would default to. And there is no way to force the phone to use wifi for calling and texting by default. So wherever I was home I'd have the wifi calling turned on and I'd have to turn my phone onto airplane mode to force the phone to disconnect from cell service so wifi calling and texting would work. I was able to make calls and get text in airplane mode but after a week of doing that I had people tell me they called and it would sometimes go straight to voicemail or I'd get a text a day late or not at all. Eventually I got that femtocell from Verizon to give me full bars of service inside my house over my internet. I have seen tho that it has dropped coverage once when verizon had a service outage. I guess when their service goes completely down it's not just a cell tower issue because my femtocell directly connects to Verizon servers over the internet.

      Google messages stating it'll work over wifi:


      You can try downloading it, turn on wifi calling and then switch to airplane mode and see if it works? But airplane mode sucks and might silent alarms, etc.

    2. Sledgstone


      I just realized that pic says google fi help. Ehh. I don't think that makes a difference because I remember getting texts over my phone in airplane mode. Maybe some android OS updates has made it more reliable than when I used it like that.

  15. My power didn't come back on until well after the event, and my cell service has been shit since the storm so I got screwed either way.
  16. Actually quite a few retailers had it live after the showcase yesterday (Target, Walmart, and Best Buy all had them live shortly after. Most of the streamers I follow were getting there's shortly after. Amazon was the only real hold out and that shit went fast (especially everywhere else)). Honestly since I'm not getting one of these until late next year at the earliest I'm not worried (no way to swing it financially this year, not with getting the Collector's Edition of Cyberpunk ($274) and pre-ordering the LE Violet Evergarden boxset + the mini-movie (which I was happy to find out was being released as well)). Happy they settled on a $499 price tag as that'll make it easier for me to get one after saving some money (I might have a job but I'm only part-time and I barely get 30 hours a week atm (at $14 an hour, fuck if that's not a kick in the balls and a non-living wage up here)).

    Playstation 5

    I hate ebay flippers. I'm glad I'm not in a rush to get a PS5. When I do get a PS5 I'll be going for that $499 model with the disk drive. Its $100 more, but I figure since I don't own a 4k bluray player and they go for about that price, I can justify paying the extra for that version just for playing movies. I might just wait for a whole other version to come out with a larger hard drive too. I'm looking forward to seeing reviews of the console from actual customers after it releases to the public. Any youtubers that get free review consoles before release I'll assume have to have their review approved by sony and are basically long sponsored biased ads.
  18. There already is tho. I fell asleep last night from all the storm stuff and everything is already sold out. I guess preorders went live at midnight everywhere.

    God of War

    Ok.. this and Horizon Zero Dawn 2 will be the primary games I'd buy the PS5 for.

    Playstation 5

    Not bad. I thought it was going to be $599 like the PS3 was initially. I bet with MS releasing the Xbox prices first Sony had to stay competitive. In a kind of related note: https://www.forbes.com/sites/krisholt/2020/04/16/sony-ps5-production-report/#28d072426685 I think Sony will purposefully gimp it's production for the first year because of the launch prices. To mitigate their loss per unit they'll say its a supply issue, but after the first year the components will drop in price and they'll start a larger production since they could make more money then. Its a gamble for them.. if we get a situation where everyone is flipping them on ebay for $700+ for the first 6+ months it'll cause alot of rage. EDIT: Actually I read that article a couple days ago.. looks like it might be false: https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2020/09/sony_says_troubled_ps5_production_rumours_are_false Interesting. If sony can pump out 11 million units then we shouldn't get any ebay flipper bs.
