    Boiled Peanuts are a southern delicacy. Boiling a raw peanut changes the taste. Its impossible to describe. If you ever see boiled peanuts in a can, avoid it. Its not good. Its as blasphemous as those Hormel canned tamales. I personally only like the cajun boiled peanuts. Normal boiled peanuts are just wet peanuts with a different taste But the spices make it heavenly when its done cajun style. I'm not buying the NY Pizza thing. I've watched so many videos of people with their NY pizzas. I fail to see how it can be any better than anywhere else. There are 2 New Yorkers that opened up pizza places here that make it as you described. Their pizzas are big, and foldable. And I do enjoy them, and mostly eat my pizza there because they are local, but its just different. I do like that grease bomb limp crust that Pizza Hut has every now an then, but they use that super processed cheese. Pizza is just bread, sauce, and cheese to me. The NY style pizza isn't overwhelmingly better. You can't make cheese or sauce into something more mindblowingly amazing, all you can do is make the bread different. There is a guy from Chicago that makes deep dish across the bay and I need to go try that since it seems unique. There is also a guy from Philly that has his own philly cheesestake shop, and its magical. But hes super old and I bet the place closes when he passes away. Same with one of the pizza parlors I mentioned. That dude is old and has like a few teenagers to run the register. He works 6 days a week and closes on Mondays I think, and Wednesday hes only open half the day. Basically he's the only one that makes the stuff and I doubt he'll share his secret and pass on the shop to someone else. Both those shops have like a 28 inch pizza as their largest size. Its so ridiculously huge. I dunno how some people get it into their car. The box is so big it barely fits through the door without tilting the pizza. We use to have Dinosaur BBQ sauce in the grocery stores around here. It was spicy and so good. Its hard to find now. It was def one of my favorites. We have a pretty good local BBQ scene here. But no one will ever convince me there is better BBQ than what I had in Memphis TN. Our Italian scene is kinda small. We have a few nice little places, and then bottom tier Olive Garden. Someone that i knew worked there and said all they do is open frozen bags and heat the stuff up. Our Mexican and Asian scene has exploded over the past 10 years or so. All the Chinese buffets went under around here with the rise of fresh and delicious sit down places. We have Chinese, Vietnamese, and a ton of Thai places which is probably my favorite. There was a Phillipine place but sadly that closed down. I think the city force them into it because they were operating out of a really old but big home that kinda was just in the middle of a business district. The building probably wasn't up to code and they couldn't afford to renovate. We have a lot of Hibachi and Sushi places, and my favorite, the anti-social hibachi places where they don't have the table and the performance that gets old after the 3rd time you seen it. I love hibachi food, I hate the cooking performance and all the other randos at the table I don't know. We also have a lot of hibachi to go places. All the homestyle cooking places went under too because no one really wants to go out and pay to eat something they make a home. Cracker Barrel is the closest thing to that we have left. Back to Mexican, If the Mexican places there don't have Lengua, Chorizo, and/or Tripe somewhere on the menu, it ain't mexican. Its just Tex Mex. Gotta have Tortas, Sopes, and Empanadas. I remember the first authentic place that opened here, they had a menu that was "american mexican" and then the second half that was in all Spanish. I'd always order from that after typing stuff into google translate. Eventually they translated it themselves in captions. Next thing you know we have like 5 or 6 now that serve the good stuff. You won't find ground beef anywhere at most of them. Def should check out that Irish Pub, probably the best lamb chops you'll ever have if they know what they're doing. There's one about 60 miles from me, that me and a few friends go visit on a special occasion. They have some of the best food there is. They make a killer ribeye, but I enjoy their Lamb Chops and these Jameson's glazed pork chops that are as big as a ribeye. EDIT: Oh I forgot, Our seafood scene is our pride and joy. We are the gulf coast after all. Red Lobster is trash. Nothing beast fresh caught seafood. There is basically a strip along the bayway of nothing but seafood restaurants. A little more west in Mississippi, there is an all you can eat catfish house, and there are just various seafood and seafood infusion places. There is one little in the know place that has seafood and burgers/steak/chicken dishes. I have some friends that are married, the husband hates seafood, so its their favorite place since he can get a burger or steak, and she can have a seafood platter and both parties are happy.

    I wish the fashion in this game was a little more detailed. Id make the Cloud garments white, but it only lets me dye the bottom part. But oh well... its like a sexy cloud cosplay I guess. I bought a swimwear outfit from mogstation to achieve the look.

    Brisk is NOT sweet tea. Any restaurant trying to serve that down here will get called out. Anything thats premade in a bottle outside of a jug of Milo's is like saying Kool-Aid is juice. Only freshly brewed is acceptable. You can just type in unsweet tea meme into google and there is an endless supply. Grits on the other hand. Its not for everyone, but I bet you had it just plain cooked, super gritty and zero butter or salt. Its like eating grape nuts stew that way. There is a very low concern for eating habits in the south. Most grits are loaded with butter and salt. It takes on a more creamy texture. Cheese is a must as well, but its much better when used as a part of a dish rather than the main dish. Shrimp and Grits are pretty popular. Chicken and Waffles are actually pretty good. But its not really common. Only one restaurant served it here and it shut down. Biscuits and gravy is magical. The sausage gravy itself is incredible. Its not gravy in the sense of turkey gravy. its not soupy, its like a semi solid of meat and salt . That lay's potato chip flavor a few years ago pretty much tasted just like the gravy. KFC biscuits are kinda dry. If you have a Popeyes up there, now that's a biscuit. Hardee's/Carl's Jr makes pretty good biscuits too. My uncle is from Minnesota and hes a super picky eater but likes weird shit like sugar and rice. wtf? He doesn't like any spicy stuff and eats the most bland foods. Thats my view of northern cuisine. I figured NYC is different because it's a cultural hub, but from what my friends that visited or lived there have said, there are no good Mexican places. As good as Taco Bell is, its trash tier. Basically what McDonalds is to Five Guys is the best comparison i can give.

    Titans (DC Universe streaming)

    I remember when this first hit all the media lambasted the fandom for being racist because no one liked how Starfire looked. They all said fans were mad because she was because she was black, but it was really because they gave her a flea market crusty the clown wig and a Halloween sexy princess dress from party city. But shes a prostitute? There was no context for this at first, but even though it makes somewhat more sense she still looks terrible. But in the new promo art she looks great. Old New Either way, what you described sounds awful. The whole WOKE culture gets on my nerves and I'm generally turned off by any kinda controversy before a show comes out these days. That whole racism fiasco put me off ever wanting to watch it. Its one thing to pick the best actor which they probably did with Anna Diop, but its another to just gender/race swap everyone just to do it. I hear that's what they've done to the Eternals. If you have to promote anything that's not relevant to the story or lore of a show/film. That's a big ole red flag for me. 9 times out of 10 the story is gonna be absolute ass. When Star Trek did the first on screen interracial kiss, they just did it. They didn't go out and promote it weeks before the episode. Different time and era of course, but the method still holds true. /end random rant.

    Joker

    I watched it and I was surprised. I was expecting a boring movie made just to win an Oscar for emotional acting, and instead I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy a very well made movie. It was great in how it showcased mental instability leading to an eventual tragic ending. The acting was great and I'm glad they made this movie instead of focusing on that horrible Joker from Suicide Squad.

    Dunno how long it will be up since most everything has already been taken down. The character model looks almost current gen while everything else looks Half-Life 2. This has to be super early as the mecahnics are pretty rough and dated.... and either the controls are still really wonky or the person playing it is absolutely awful at such a simple 3rd person shooter. If this is as far as it ever got I can sorta see why they may have cancelled it without giving the studio a chance to fine tune it. Found one more... LMAO the character animations are good in some aspects and rough in others. the way she climbs a ladder is hilarious to me.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

    Pretty much my favorite thing to do in this game now. There is zero counter to the thermal. Cold Blooded helps a little but you can still see them. Smoke grenades + Thermal scope is just a nightmare to contend with. And its pretty much one of the last unlocks for every gun. This is why there is no perk to allow 2 non lethal equipment in this game as well I'd guess.

    Random thought. How much is too much? I remember when I was young, and my parents had adult social gathering with friends, there was Budwiser, Miller, and Coors. Maybe some others here and there. When I came of age the selection got a bit more vast. I don't really drink beer anymore as the constant pissing and bloating isn't worth the small buzz it provides. Holy cow today there is so many damn beers tho. Like 6000 IPAs alone. How do you even decide? Especially if you're as adventurous as someone like me. You'd never be able to settle on a favorite because you want to try something new too much. There is so much that I'd forget something I liked after trying 30 more beers over the course of months. It kinda reminds me of damn yogurt. When I started in the grocery business there was 3 types of yogurt. Breyer's Cream Savers, Yoplait, and store brand. Now there's a 20 foot section of yogurt at every store... and let me tell you... MILLIONS of dollars go in the garbage every year from it going out of date. Its the biggest food waste in America. Anyways. Overall I don't drink anywhere near as much as I use to and when I do its bourbon/whiskey only. I have my tried and true, but I'd always like to venture out and try something here and there when something new would appear on the shelf... but now Bourbon is the same way. WTF My curiosity gets the better of me and I've tried nothing but new stuff the last 3 bottles I've gotten the past year. They've all been pretty good, but nothing mind blowing. I'm going to pick up something new again tomorrow for the kick off of Season 2 for COD. I'll stand there like an idiot for 20 min trying to decide, knowing that I won't be back for another 2 months. By that time 10 new bourbons will be out. I don't know whether to complain about it or be happy that the market is so robust after there was apparently going to be a bourbon shortage according to some reports a few years ago. I don't, and I never will drink cheap. If I can't afford the good stuff I go without. And now that I go through a bottle every 2-3 months rather than 1 a week or two like in my 20s. I'm willing to spend even more per bottle. I tried some Prichard Bourbon last time, it was pretty good but had some sweet tones like brandy I didn't care for too much. I like my bourbon to be rough and tough with that good oaky taste that incinerates your sinuses upon hitting your tongue. Before that I had Clyde May's Alabama Whiskey which was really good. There are a lot of staples that are releasing new stuff I want to try unless its that fruit infused crap. Uh damn Millennials ruining alcohol with there fruit flavors. White Claw is an abomination of mankind and shouldn't exist. /endrant.

    Birds Of Prey

    I had really low expectations for Birds Of Prey. So many people thinking it's garbage before they've seen it. And I can't stop myself from making the outdated obscure bad joke that Harley Quinn is actually Tank Girl. But somehow this has become my 1st Official my 2nd comic book that I've liked so much I think it deserves a 5/5. Birds Of Prey - 5/5 4/5 The Gentlemen (2019?) - 4/5 Tank Girl (1995) - 3/5 …. I thought The Iowa Caucus Rat would be the worst thing to happen this week. Time to blame the DC Wolf. And here's a Movie Bob Review.

    Finally after 25 years Tank Girl gets a sequel! It's bringing back Jet Girl. And it has a better budget than the original so we might not have to look at fursuiters! Wait, they're still saying that's Harley Quinn?.... The person I'm mistaking for Jet Girl is Huntress?.... I'm pretty certain "Bruce" isn't a fursuiter.

    Warcraft 3: Reforged

    They pulled a Ubisoft basically. Quartering had some stills from someone's twitter, it basically it just looks like WC3 with SweetFX or Reshade on it. Some of the stuff they showed at blizzcon had more detailed shadows and textures than the final product. Apparently there was an expectation of more advance features like being able to control more than 12-14 units at a time, but the limit cap from the original remains. They probably should have just left it alone if they didn't really want to do this project. Its just a money grab. Outside WoW, they really don't give two shits about its RTS roots.

    I would never go full carnivore because I like Buffalo Wings too much. And Vegans have super charged my FOMO on eating meat. So nowadays I have a Non-Vegan Diet where at least 6 days a week I eat foods that Vegans can't eat. The day I consider a Non-Vegan Vegetarian Diet 6 days a week is the day that Cultured Meat takes over The Meat Industry. Also here is Joe Rogan's opinion so far about him being on The Carnivore Diet.

    Depends on your lifestyle as well as far as activities go. The ep with Glenn Villeneuve, he basically ate nothing but tons of meat and animal fat all winter and his cholesterol was surprisingly below average still. But all he did every day was hunt for food and stay alive in Alaska. Genetics also factor into it.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    I finished Shadow of the Tomb Raider last week. Ehh. The combat finally kicked in near the end but overall I wasn't impressed with this game. I've already said my complaints, but the games wasn't all bad. The tombs and exploration is where the game shined. That and the graphics.. the landscape, HDR, lighting effects, etc.. but not the character models. The characters all looked horrible, but damn if the location you were in didn't look stunning. And swimming was done amazingly well, aside from the first swimming location and running out of breath too easily until you get some holding your breath upgrades. Water, swimming and the use of water in tombs was all done exceptionally well. The extra challenge tombs that come with the complete edition didn't appeal to me as much as I thought they would. Mostly because they can be played with multiple players with matchmaking because they are designed to be either played solo or with an extra player. Theres also an online scoreboard for timed runs. Because of this design choice the extra challenge tombs aren't really exploration based and I didn't see any artifacts or anything like that to interact with. Overall it was an ok game, but my expectations were definitely way to high after playing the first two over the past couple years which caused my enjoyments issues. The first two games definitely excelled in combat, whereas this one focused more on puzzle solving with tombs. Just seemed so off putting to do such a drastic shift. Oh, and the ending sucked IMO.

    We got this game free with PS+ membership a while back and I played it this last week. The game was originally released on PS3 back in 2013. 3 years later Stranger Things season 1 came out on netflix. I make that reference because Stranger Things is a blatant rip off of this game. The trailer shows Jodie and Aiden, the soul/entity attached to her.. and she has psychic powers. Based off the trailer alone it doesn't look anything like stranger things, but the game is all over the place in her timeline and you see her story from childhood to full adult. The more I played I thought to myself, wow that is so much like Eleven from Stranger Things.. but when exact scenes from stranger things started happening... repeatedly... I couldn't help but notice it can't be just a coincidence. Aside from exact scenes with different sets, the overall theme was the same. Government doing tests on a psychic kid, government running a secret facility to open a portal to another dimension, Jodie aka Eleven having to close said portal. When Jodie overexerts herself she gets a nosebleed and is weakened. But instead of a sheriff father figure its a scientist, still a strong father figure. The only thing stranger things did that was unique was throw a bunch of kids into this character's life so it wouldn't be nearly so dark and then made it cheery and funny, once again to not make the story so dark. I could go on, but I don't want to ruin the game, which by the way was great. It was like a full interactive movie mostly run with QTE inputs which sounds boring but its not. There is plenty of walking around, running, exploring and even combat. Using psychic powers to kill people was quite enjoyable as well. I'm sure there are some youtube videos showing all the comparisons. My guess is Netflix paid this game developer/publisher money for movie/tv rights under the table with a clause that the game wouldn't be referenced as source material. If not I don't see how in the hell the game company hasn't filed a lawsuit. Direct scenes happen, multiple times, like almost shot for shot that occurred 3 years later in stranger things. When I got to the end of the game and saw scenes that took place in season 2 of stranger things theres no doubt in my mind this was the source material. It really opens my eyes as to how unoriginal Stranger Things actually is and I'm sad this game didn't get nearly as much publicity for being as good as it was back during its release. If you got this free with PS+ or can get it cheap, I think its on PC now, I recommend playing it. If the next season of stranger things is a time skip and Eleven ended up joining the CIA.. well, play this game to find out what happens!

    Imitation is the sincerest of flattery. Pretty much every movie/tv series with a definite start and end is a rip off of something. It's just in the past its normally been of obscure things. Anime was a huge source of this in the 80s and 90s before it exploded over here. They could still get away with it probably. Normally things that were getting ripped off were obscure comics, books, short stories. etc. Pretty bold to rip a game, but the producers and directors are probably boomers that think not a lot of people play games.

    Well you do have that complete Anthem overhaul to look forward to if reports are right about them reworking it from the ground up (what good it will do who knows). Honestly Respawn would be the better choice between the two since BioWare Austin (makers of TOR) are pretty much a skeleton crew at this point and they couldn't be repurposed for a new KoToR at this point (I mean they're barely pushing out any significant updates for TOR outside of rehashes of old events, the reason why I'm currently not subscribed anymore (until the next big content patch hits where I get my hands on my long vacated Dark Council seat)). I would assume Respawn is probably working on the next hush hush title (I mean they're currently working on the VR Medal of Honor and I'm sure the constant updating of Apex keeps them busy). I would assume we see another Titanfall game from Respawn before another Star Wars title or even a sequel to Fallen Order. Then again with as greedy as EA is I wouldn't be surprised if they hand over the story focused SW games to Respawn after there hit. We'll just have to wait and see. Hopefully, if the rumor proves to be true, the devs stick to the story and spirit of the original KoToR's and deliver just a complete remaster instead of a complete remake. I doubt it though since I'm sure Disney will put their foot down on keeping it true to new canon (I mean EA has the game license but Papa Disney holds the license for everything so it wouldn't take much for them to pull it if EA said no, no one fucks with Papa Disney (even terrible Uncle EA)).

    At this point everything should be scary when you can't even trust established developers in their respective genre to make a complete and satisfying game. If I had to choose between Bioware and Respawn though, I'd choose Respawn. If they can go from FPS to 3rd person action/puzzle game. I'd have more faith than Bioware making something better or even on par with the original. I'm sure they'd consult heavily with Bioware either way. I could be completely wrong though. I mean they just put out Fallen Order, so I doubt they've been developing a KOTOR remake for any lenght of time for this to be news. It would still be or just exiting the concept stage I'd imagine. It could be Bioware, their burning trash pile of Anthem is almost a year removed. What a dissapointment that was. The gameplay engine was absolutely phenomenal... and that was it once you got past the campaign.

    Muh feels. Holy cow my eyes. 😭 MHA's dub fell a week behind last month so I just got to the end of the fight and the Nighteye hospital scene. I wasn't expecting that from MHA. It doesn't help that Kono Oto Tomare's finale was phenomenal and also misty eye inducing. Anime brutalized my emotions today.

    I don't know, I thought KoToR 2 had a better story then the first one. Yea, it's obvious it's rushed (and you can mod it to make it closer to what it was supposed to be) but I thought Obsidian did a rather good job with it (even if I still haven't beaten it, god damn you for being OP Traya). Honestly I just wish they'd leave the old, good games alone and focus on making new ones. Plus don't fuck with the story, the new canon is fucking shit so don't try to muscle this into the new canon. The way the story is is just fine, no need to change things around. The only other thing is who'd be remaking it? If it's BioWare I'm out. They've fucked up way to much in recent years to even be trusted with their own original game (I have slim hopes for DA4 and the recent rumors of a new ME, that studio is not what it used to be and should not be trusted with triple A titles anymore). Obsidian would be the only other choice but they're focused on their own shit right now (especially with the success of The Outer Worlds).

    You're not missing much with KOTOR2. It's not terrible. But it was rushed to release so a lot went unfinished and unpolished. If they Andromeda it, they'll be screwed. If they Fallen Order it, it will be amazing. They really should leave the story alone, bring back all the old VAs, and just make reimaginings of all the planets.

    We're going to lose the gif feature. I've been holding off on the latest IPB update because I was waiting on the theme guy to release his update (that happened last night), so I'll update this weekend.. but one thing in the patch notes from IPB: "Removed support for Gfycat embeds due to ongoing unaddressed security concerns on their end." The gifs were fun while they lasted.
