  1. The landscapes reminds me of legend of zelda windwaker except not all cell shaded. And the characters have a bit of a RWBY / Grandia combo look to me. Could be fun.
  2. Good for MS to have backwards compatibility that good right at day one. MS and Sony can keep having console wars but with steam as a gaming competitor, they need to have "library wars" whatever platform has the most users with the largest libraries of games will have a significantly stronger fan base for years and years. Like steam... I couldn't imagine ever dropping that platform since I have to much invested in it. I currently have a large library of ps3 and ps4 digital games, if sony would commit to the library wars like MS is doing I'd be thrilled. Good for MS. If I had alot of xbox games I'd be very excited for the series x. Hopefully this will be a permanent feature going forward with all their new consoles over the years to.

    Godfall

    I'm definitely going to play Ghost at some point, but aside from the clips I've seen of it the only other minimalistic UI game I've played is Dead Space. I'm about 5 hours in on it and it has no minimap, or anything cluttering the screen. The health bar and statis charge level is visible on the back of the armor and ammo is displayed as a virtual popup screen for each gun when being aimed. I didn't think I'd like this but I've gotten used to it and almost prefer it now. There is no clutter on the screen at all and instead of opening the menu to see my map, I click R3 and he does some objective homing scan on the ground to point me on the right path. More games should do this. And if godfall can implement it like Ghost or Dead Space in some way then it'll be nice to be able to see more of the action and environments without having to stare at dot on a minimap. I say that but for some games it's not practical to have a minimilast UI. They toned down alot for BFV and that sucked ass. I'd rather shoot at red doritos in the background than try to see enemies in the mess of environmental destruction, bad lighting and particle effects.

    No microtransactions or DLC. I'm surprised. I assumed every looter game was designed to have DLC come out every three months to wipe all your gear progression and make you start the grind all over again to keep everyone playing endlessly or be left behind. I like that Godfall won't be doing that. It actually makes it more interesting to me now. I like the shield combat. As long as there is a good campaign I would like to play this now. I hope they implement a decent UI, I noticed there's no map, no hit point indicators for enemies and no screen to equip gear. Regardless I like where the game is headed now.
  5. Damn ground bee stung the hell out of my arm yesterday while I was weed whacking. If I could have gotten to their hive with the whacker I'd have shredded it into a million pieces and then ran for my life. XD But the hive was in a concrete block. I sprayed it last night. I'll hit it with some expanding foam spray tonight to seal off the rest of them so they'll be buried alive.

      Take that ground bees!

      I used the giant expanding foam. There's like 20 of those bees flying around it since I sprayed it 2 nights ago. I'm surprised that many were outside the hive at 10pm at night. Hopefully that hive will die off soon and the leftover bees will fly off.

    Either I completely forgot about pogs being a game or I never played it a single time. I don't think I've ever seen a slammer pog or the board until that video either. there's metal and plastic slammers? how'd I miss all this?! I remember having some ninja turtle pogs. I bet I still have some at my mom's house. From what I remember of the early 90s I was infatuated with my SNES, super Mario world and rpg games.

    I just watched that Pogs video. lmao. I had no idea it was a game. I owned a bunch of them somehow. I got them as gifts, from friends, they came free with other purchases.. I had no idea it was a game. I always wondered what they were used for.. and its basically just gambling. Playing marbles for keeps actually requires more skill than this. Mars looks great in 4k. That Glee curse.. damn. I never watched Glee either. Melissa Benoist was in that show and shes been playing Supergirl for years on the CW. Hopefully that curse stays away from her.
  8. I watched this over the last week and its really good. Decent sword fights, plenty of action and alot of blood. No nudity except for a butt cheek. But overall good acting, great sets and costumes. The guy that plays Floki from Vikings is Merlin and he does a great job too. And Katherine Langford is a good actress. Now I know shes not just some one off actress with 13 Reasons Why. I hope season 2 goes into production soon. With this and The Witcher, Netflix has nailed two great series with fantasy themes. I hope they keep it up and make more shows like this.
  9. The signatures don't show on the front page either for some reason. I need to look into it some more.
  10. A couple remote hosted signatures were throwing off the https for the site and causing a "some items are insecure" warning to appear on browsers. I had to make some changes to the signatures. Remote linking images is ok and all "insecure" images will now be downloaded into a cache and served from this server instead of remotely, but everyone can feel free to upload their images, either way it should be all good now. Oh, and apparently its been a while since I've looked at signature settings... there is a setting to allow signatures in mobile view. I turned it on for now so we can all see if we like that or not. And heres a poll.. keep signatures for mobile view on?
  11. You get 2 raises per year? Nice. $100 gift card at a grocery store is the same as cash to me. Like you said, everyone has to buy groceries. Having a store open on Thanksgiving for black Friday sales seems pointless to me and it just keeps people from spending time with their families. Nowadays almost every company starts their black Friday sales online 2 weeks before Thanksgiving anyway. My niece in ohio has covid. She was sick back in january like alot of us. Either she didn't have covid back then or she did and she got it a second time. If that's the case then everyone who thinks they had it earlier this year might be susceptible to getting it again now. Stay safe because that immunity from having it could be completely temporary.
  12. I had a liver sonogram done and it revealed nothing but a large bill to pay. Getting your bloodwork done for liver enzyme tests is alot cheaper than a sonogram or xray. It might be worth getting done just to know where your levels are and then again at the end of the 2 years to see how much improvement has been made. Walmart has had hand over fist profits during the entire coronavirus. All that extra $600 a month along with people furloughing their mortgages for a year let a massive chunk of people with nothing to do and a crap load of money to spend at walmart, home depot and amazon since no where else was open. I think walmart made more profit in the last 3 months than they have in the last 3 years. They gave out bonuses to all employees twice already and they made so much money they can afford to shut down for thanksgiving pre-black friday sales and give out bonuses to all employees a third time. All that stimulus money meant to shore up the economy only benefited large businesses because all the small businesses were closed. They should have held off on sending out those initial stimulus checks until everything reopened. Now that the extra $600 a week is going away right when small businesses have only just begun to reopen in the last 3 weeks, all their potential earnings are going to dry up quick. I read an article that alot of the PPP small business loans went to large companies that were owned by private equity groups that shouldn't be considered small businesses. The majority of these PPP loans don't have to be paid back as long as the companies followed the rules, so it was basically the free stimulus money sent out to all the small businesses. If all that money actually went to small businesses, maybe it could have helped them more.. instead big organizations like the catholic church somehow got around $1.4 billion of those small business PPP loans for all their multiple churchs across the country... Our taxpayer money is either helping to pay off all their child abuse lawsuits / settlements or at least shore up the foundation of their bank accounts to prevent them from closing as a result of all those lawsuits. Imagine if $1.4 billion went to actual small businesses that employed an actual work force instead of some churchs, that could have helped saved alot of independent restaurants. Since the PPP loans had no oversight, all the money just went out to whoever just like the $600 a week going out to everyone. I've never seen the US government just give away money like this before. Its crazy. And another article I read said they want to convert a large chunk of the PPP loans into grants so they don't have to pay anyone to do the paperwork to confirm if any of the PPP loans were none fraudulent. wtf.
