  1. Don't watch if you haven't gotten to the last season.
  2. This might be the most beautifully crafted OP of all time. Definitely my favorite Shonen Battle Anime. Hopefully the issues at MAPPA with crunch don't doom this series from being produced fully. I'd rather go 10 years like AoT to get the full thing than have it cancelled. Probably my second favorite OP ever... maybe my favorite musically. Dr. Stone continues to be one of the most fun anime out there. Its got a great balance of story, action, and comedy. Another hauntingly beautiful opening that matches the violence of the series.
  3. This has become my newest favorite channel. He does a good mix of stories he can completely debunk to some that have no answer if its real or not. This last one is my favorite because it shows how far the government will go just to destroy you.
  4. The finale was trash. It was just 90 min trailer to Segway into the 3 new shows. They ruined Mercer's moment when he was going to take a stand. The comic was way better in every way.
  5. This was a mess of a launch. My progress from OW1 didn't migrate over immediately and I had to wait a few days. I don't agree with how the F2P works as far as character locks. None of the OG characters should be locked... but they are... including D.Va who is by far the best tank in the game right now. I'd say buy the watchpoint pack if you try it out and really like it. A lot of current meta heroes are locked. Under the old 6v6 this would have been fine, but with 5v5 the game is faster paced and killfeed heavy. Kiriko is a monster, the best off healer in the game. She can two shot any non tank with head shots, and has Genji's and Hanzo's wall climb, plus a teleport. Each season the meta will change as they only do major balancing from season to season. The name of the game right now is high mobility. Thats Solider Sojourn, Tracer, Sombra, Winston, D.Va, Genji, Lucio, Moria, and Kiriko. Thoughts on gameplay? Its fun... a lot of people will like it over old OW. I personally liked OW1's style... slow, methodical, it was all about positioning. It was truly a team effort. Now you can solo carry, its much faster... hardly any crowd control. Sojourn is a beast... basically Soldier on steroids minus the self heal. Now that there can only be one tank per team, they really are TANKS and they are pure brawlers. They're not worth trying to kill unless you take down the healers first. D.Va is going to be nerfed.... She has access to her boosters way more now, so you can easily escape when your healers go down. Her damage is insane on top of that. I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts. As long as they don't tone down her damage, I think its more fair to increase her CDs instead. Healers have to be more aware and prepared to fend for themselves. I feel like this was in the planning stage pretty early when Baptiste came out. Luckily I have tons of experience of being aggressive with Lucio I can regularly place top 2 in eliminations. (I get a lot of endorsements when I Lucio XD) Moria is a fucking nightmare for squishies. Shes impossible to get away from for characters without a mobility skill, and her fade is even better than it was in OW1. Basically there is less reliance on keeping each other alive. Keep your tank up, provide what you can to your DPSs that aren't running off like morons... and prepare to fight.
  6. The original series is highly regarded from what I know. This is a remake. How it differs from the OG I don't know.. but the animation quality is obviously superior because of technology. I've enjoyed this political space opera so far. Maybe one day I'll go back and watch the OG. But for now I'll stick with this.. and the beauty of its openings are on par with Fruits Basket. There are only 2 by comparison. The first season's was so good I don't blame them for reusing it for S2... I honestly didn't think it could be matched.. but this one is just as beautiful as Binary Star.

    I dunno when survival games became the new fad, but I dig it more than battle royal everything.
  8. At a glance it looks like they totally ripped off Guild Wars 2 dynamic events and world boss system. I'm ok with that. 160 dungeons? Its looking promising. I really dig the old school, less colorful tone of the world. Kinda disappointed no demon hunter. I'll probably main Barb and alt Rogue.
  9. Free to Play. I guess they are gonna go hard on loot boxes. The best part if all the OG players keep all their cosmetics from the first game. They'll really have to step up their creativity to top my current favorite skins. I've heard the 5v5 has toned down the need for team cohesion and allows more solo carry. This lead to a lot of support heroes struggling to even stay alive. They've been revamping them giving them more offense. We'll see how it plays out.
  10. Yeah I spent a lot of money on Genshin Impact... I feel like I'll be spending even more on this one for character rolls.
  11. I never thought they'd top the S1 theme... but this one goes as fucking hard as the season did. Bravo. Top 10 themes of all time for me. Even though I was hoping they'd keep Binary Star as the theme every season, I cannot deny the beauty of S3's new opener. Definitely one of the best political drama series out there. I heard the OG was really good... but I'm too invested in the modern remake to go back.
  12. PC Master Race will be like "git gud with mouse and keyboard scrubs".
  13. I thought Season 1 was pretty good. But holy shit The Train Arc and Entertainment District Arc set a new standard for animation quality... like almost Violet Evergarden levels... for high octane fight scenes. Entertainment District's last half is just non stop action, leaving you with a solid cliff hanger going into the next ep.
  14. My PC came with a free month of Game Pass Ultimate. I decided to check out what I can play for free and found out how garbage the Xbox App for PC is. I downloaded Halo Infinite. The game wouldn't load. It would show the spartan insignia and then I'd just get a black screen. I never got to the title screen. Upon investigating this, its apparently a common issue. I tried all the "fixes" and uninstalled and re-installed the game twice. It never worked. So then I try to play The Ascent with a friend. The game worked fine solo, but we couldn't connection to each other. Again, I look it up and its once again.... a common issue. This time with no fix. We gave up and bought it on steam where it works without any issues. Needless to say, I'm cancelling Game Pass.

      I'm not impressed with game pass for PC, but with the Ultimate, try the cloud gaming feature and see if you can play any xbox console exclusives on your PC. There might be something worth playing on that during the free month. But yeah, the pc game pass sucks.. try and access the free EA Access games, lol. You have to install the EA Access app, login to it with your game pass and access the EA games through that because they can't bother to have a single app to launch the games. -_-

      I think its only worth it if you play alot of sports games or you have an Xbox console and a decent PC and alot of free time to play $15 worth of games a month.

  15. I never wanted to try to Souls game. The thought of being one shotted and having to start all over again from a single mistake always turned me off. I don't have as much time as I use to to "git gud". Fallen Order was the closest i ever played to a souls style game, but by the time you got force powers, the game became more like  inFAMOUS games than Souls. I got Elden Ring for whatever reason and honestly... I've been enjoying the hell out of it despite some soul crushing moments. I like the freedom, the exploration, finding good gear laying around without having to fight anything. Gear that will give you a fighting chance to get even better gear. You're not forced to fight any of the bosses in any particular order You can skip bosses to get to most of the world with exception of the last 2 areas. The purpose of beating bosses to to progress the story. So I've played in a way where I've gone to most the world. geared up as high as possible.. allowing me 1 fully upgraded legendary weapon.. and being able to have an easier time with the story bosses... then there are "optional" bosses that are just savage AF and HP sponges. XD I've beaten a few but some are just beyond my skill level. Either way, I highly recommend this game as a non souls fan. At the very least, its worth your money when it goes on discount sometime down the road.

  16. Haven't had much time to play but I will say there is one awesome feature about this game. I had a crash after I beat a dungeon boss. I had to interact with something to finish the dungeon and the game just closed out on me. I was pretty enraged because in every other MMO, you have to restart the dungeon and redo the whole thing... but it loaded me back in to the end where I just had to interact with the object and finish. I think it was a single room though... like a fail safe they built in. But I was so thankful.
  17. I got a new PC yesterday and instantly dropped cash for the platinum founders pack. I can't wait to dive into this game.
  18. Yeah don't do that. It would be incredibly boring to watch outside of shrines. There are no linear areas in this game. Its all open world. The Shrines were the most fun because of all the puzzles and the ingenious ways you could make things even easier than they were suppose to be. I don't see another Nintendo console coming out anytime soon. The current chip shortage is probably going to prolong the PS5/XBSX generation for as long as the PS3/360 was or longer. Its amazing how a year later its still hard to get them. If you can pick up an old switch on the cheap and a pro controller, thats all you need. BoTW, Mario Odyssey, Metriod Dread, Paper Mario, and Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening are all solid. Plus you have a ton of indy side scoller games to keep you busy when getting your tires changes from winter to summer. Octopath Traveler is highly acclaimed but I'm not into JRPGs... apparently there are quite a few on switch. For me BOTW is the single most greatest Zelda game of all time. The only knock was the lack of more main dungeons. The story was good, the voice acting worked well and brought something fresh to the series. It brought Zelda and the supporting cast to life while keeping Link the silent protagonist. If you like exploring and finding secrets, you'll get lost for hours on end without accomplishing any of the main story. Along with the last God of War game these are my two favorite single player games of all time.
