  1. This trailer looked so bad ass... and then the show was a hot pile of garbage. I know origin stories have been done to death for alot of Marvel and DC properties. Everyone knows Batman and Superman's origins, but for older properties I expect some sort of backstory or origin of some kind. When Netflix rebooted Voltron it was amazingly well done. There was a full back story for all the characters that was new and refreshing, the galaxy and science was explained well, alien planets were explored and all sentient life forms had planets they came from, alien galactic powers explained, space travel, the impact of the alien invasion on Earth and in the end the scale of the universe and Voltron saving all of existence was amazing. They took an old 80s cartoon meant for selling toys into the an epic story.... And then we get He-Man. I was expecting that same level of quality. Instead we get the same cheesy cartoon from the 80s with updated animation, a couple dumb plot twists and a show that focuses entirely on the results of He-Man getting his ass kicked. And there is no back story or origins or any kind of information about these characters at all. Its a 40 year old cartoon that never had the same popularity as Batman or Superman, entire generations have never even seen a single episode of the old He-Man, and this show assumes you've seen it all and don't need any kind of refresher. This series should have been a full on reboot, but instead its 5 episodes of wasted time. Castle Grayskull could have looked epic, but they literally left its design looking just like the old cartoon... and then said it's look was all an illusion anyway because its this crystal looking palace or some crap. wtf. Theres an orb in the castle that powers all magic in the universe and must be defended at all costs, but there is no garrison stationed there, only 1 sorceress. wtf. There is advanced technology, but everyone wears loin cloths.. there are aliens living on the planet, but its never referenced if they all came from other planets to visit the main planet at the center of the universe or if everyone is just living there. And somehow a mostly naked guy with a sword can be "master of the universe" because he has a power sword, but compared to other properties like Star Trek or Star Wars or even Voltron, any of the major powers from those properties could just one shot He-Man from space like he was a flea. and they try to say that one sword ensures that the entire universe stays alive. Ok. And He-Man is barely in these 5 episodes. Here is 1 sentence explaining why: And because of that, the entire 5 episodes focuses on Teela is the focal point of the entire series. And after episode 1 she immediately gets a butch hair cut and is traveling around everywhere with her "partner". They never did any woke lesbian love crap and didn't imply they were a couple. And holy crap that magical girl transformation scene. Omg that was so bad. One thing this show had going for it was the voice actors. Top quality voices from alot of celebrities. Although if I closed my eyes Mark Hamill sounded a bit more like the Joker instead of Skeletor but Mark Hamill has done that evil Joker voice for so many years its easy to identify him now.
  2. Nooooooo!!! I just want to troll people with the EOD bot again on a map like Operation Locker or Operation Metro.
  3. Omg. EOD bot has me completely sold on this game. If I had a PS5 I'd buy this game asap.
  4. The trailers were better than the show. 80% of Godzilla Singular Point was a small handful of characters talking about make believe non-plausible or even remotely believable science and half of that dialogue took place in text message form while us as the viewer literally stare at the characters phone screens for 10 minutes at a time. Better watch it in english because I don't see anyone reading subtitles that fast. The monsters were good, but there wasn't enough action, and what action we did have, none of the characters ever showed any actual sense of danger. That was more unbelievable than all the BS science they kept talking about. There are monsters all over the place about to murder everyone and every character's reactions are so deadpan its as if nobody fears anything, and I mean every character from the main characters, regular people walking down the street, tv news anchors, etc. Its basically a potential extinction level event for humanity in the making and literally everyone is completely chill. wtf. And also, Godzilla is barely in this until the end of the season. If not for Jet Jaguar every character would have been dead before we hit the halfway point of the season. Also, consider this series a completely different alternate universe for everything Godzilla related. All the monsters, Godzilla itself, Jet Jaguar, all of it is completely unrelated to anything ever done with anything related to Godzilla. The other Netflix Godzilla series, "Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters" is also an alternate universe of Godzilla as well, but it was the superior of these series. BTW, the end of the last episode does have an after credits scene that leads into a potential season 2.

    I've missed some topics over time. x_x I forgot about this one. Have they given you any updates about when they'll ship yours?
  6. Steam Deck looks great, the Ayaneo looks really good too, same with the Switch OLED... If Nintendo made a new Switch that did 4k I'd have been extremely tempted to buy that over a PS5 just to play nintendo exclusives. Oh well, someday.
  7. Took me a while to finish watching these videos. Considering that second round of pre-orders might not get shipped until late 2022 really makes this another scalpers golden ticket item again. I like the Steam Deck and I think its a great idea, but with whatever silicon ship shortage BS the world has right now, its pretty crap timing and this is going to be flipped on ebay just as bad as the PS5. At least the initial scalpers were denied their ebay listings, until it gets closer to December when they'll be allowed to list them for thousands of dollars. Reviewtechusa makes a great point about the base model though. I'd pass on that and go for the 512 gb version.
  8. Steam has made its own hand held game console. It can be used as a handheld or docked to a tv like the Nintendo Switch. Honestly, this looks like a solid hand held. Everyone that does PC gaming has a steam account and most likely alot of games already in their library. There are three versions: $399, $529 & $649 depending on the internal storage. Its shipping December of 2021. https://www.steamdeck.com/en/?snr=1_4_4__118 The hardware looks great too: https://www.steamdeck.com/en/hardware
  9. I finished up Fruits Basket a couple days ago. Overall it was a great reboot. Season 1 was pretty spot on with the original season except it went a bit faster and felt like it lost some of the humor the original show had because the characters didn't seem to transform as often, but maybe I'm remembering the original wrong since its been over 10 years since I've seen it. The two eps that focused on Hana & Uo-chan were really good since they didn't go into any real backstory for those 2 characters in the original series. Season 2 went a bit slow and the student council/Yuki school president episodes felt like filler to me, but by the end of the series it was all character development for Yuki and how things ended with his relationships. Season 3 was so emotional and I love that the series got an ending after all these years.
  10. PS+ monthly cost is high to me. I always buy the yearly amount which usually goes on sale multiple times a year at different retailers for around $30. Ends up being way cheaper that way. Even if I still have 5 months left of my PS+, I'll buy another years worth on sale, redeem the code on my PSN account and it adds that extra year onto my account so I'd have 1 year 5 months left. Usually around black friday it always goes on sale at newegg, amazon, bestbuy or cdkeys and its almost always a digital code they email to you. I just swapped out 2 hard drives, one for lady's laptop and the one on my main PC. Her laptop was crazy and required a full disassembly to get to the hard drive which is insane to me. But my main PC was 1 screw for the side of the case and another screw to hold the hard drive in. But because I kept my old hard drive in there I realized there wasn't enough SATA cables in there. If I just swapped them out it would have been fine, but I kept the old hard drive in there to install games on. So I unhooked my dvd/cd drive and plugged it's cables into the new hard drive. I almost never use that dvd drive anyway. If I order another SATA cable I can hook it back up tho. BTW, swapping hard drives is easy with Macrium Reflect free edition: https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree I bought a USB 3 SATA adapter off amazon use my new SSD as an external drive. Set the program to clone the hard drive with a couple clicks and after it was done, I swapped the hard drives. Didn't have to re-install windows or any of that crap. It just booted right up like normal. The only other thing I had to do with my main PC tho was enter the bios and set it to boot from the new SSD but thats because I left the old hard drive connected. The only realy problem I had with cloning hard drives was Lady's laptop HDD gave all kinds of erros. I had to set it to run multiple chkdsk scans to fix bad sectors and even then it would clone to 99% and fail. I eventually got it to clone over using mini partition tool free edition that isn't free anymore so I had to find a version 11 of that software to download and install to get the clone function free. Pain in the ass when the hard drive has bad sectors. On a side note, I won't be buying another PC again until after Windows 11 comes out. I really love PC gaming now, but microsoft is pissing me off with the Windows 11 hard ware requirements. My launch PS4 eventually had the disk drive fail, ever since then I don't want to buy a launch system again. Both of my PS3s worked amazing until the power supply for one failed after 7 years. PS3s were built solid. lol.
  11. Thats a good price. I haven't check netflix to see if it has Cowboy Bebop, but they might have it soon considering their company is making the live action Cowboy Bebop series. I like Tubi, I've been watching it more recently. Its great for putting a movie on in the background and it auto plays into another movie in a similar genre. The amount of ads isn't that bad either. Discovery+ is great btw. It has all the science channel content. Many many many hours of high quality space documentaries. I love it. It also has every episode of myth busters on there. Discovery made it impossible for years to ever find a decent clip of mythbusters, but at least its all finally available to stream. I've been trying the Funimation app over the last week thanks to my friend. So far the quality is really good. Fruits Basket is so sad.
  12. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/windows-11-leaves-computers-out So this TPM crap is going to screw me out of the upgrade. My PC and our 2 laptops do not have TPM chips. We have everything else including the secure boot, but this TPM requirement seems like complete BS to me to force people into buying new hardware. They should do a software workaround for it, but I doubt they will. Edit: So unless my pcs get a firmware update to their bios to emulate a tpm chip then I won't be getting windows 11. On a side note, some pcs have a slot on their motherboard where a tpm chip can be bought separate and installed... and those are already being bought up in mass by scalpers to be resold on eBay. Of course. https://www.windowscentral.com/psa-scalpers-are-hoarding-tpm20-modules
  13. I haven't tried the PC Health Check on my pc or laptop yet. Turns out windows 11 also requires TPM/Secure Boot. It should be in the bios but some motherboards don't have it. I'll have to check mine, hopefully they have the setting available. If yours doesn't check to see if there is a firmware update for your PC or motherboard. I had to update the bios firmware a couple times for my PC over the last couple years. Just be very careful updating that firmware, if the power goes out as the update is happening it'll brick your PC. Bios updates are fast and only take like a minute and then you need to reboot the PC but that one minute is the most stressful to me because it could screw everything. https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/windows-11-tpm-requirements-workaround/ https://www.howtogeek.com/737171/how-to-fix-this-pc-cant-run-windows-11/ I use Driver Booster to update my drivers: https://download.cnet.com/Driver-Booster/3000-18513_4-75992725.html But make sure to create a system restore point before you update drivers in case something screws up. A system restore point doesn't fix a bios or firmware update tho but it will roll back other drivers. Also, if you have a Dell, Sony or another name brand pc, you can go to their site, search for drivers and most of the time they have their own software that will scan your PC and give you a download list of drivers to update. Sometimes windows update will have these drivers as "optional updates" so you can check there to but windows update won't always have all drivers listed there.
  14. Nope, not free. It's $20 on steam right now. I've never played Rust but that's mostly because I don't find alot of open world games all that appealing anymore. More free games: Horizon Chase Turbo free on Epic game store until 07/01/2021 at 11 am: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/horizon-chase-turbo Sonic Manis is free on Epic game store until 07/01/2021 at 11 am: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/sonic-mania
