I haven't been playing much.  New maps did nothing for me and it's the first map pack I haven't loved.  But it may be tied into the fact that the only thing I want to play is Destiny.

Just hit 280 hours of play.

Spoils

Season 5 was easily the best season of the show's run. Can't imagine having had to wait a week between episodes.

I'm not a BB nuthugger as I think the first two seasons were pretty mediocre. However, when Gus came on the scene things really started picking up.

Season five took it to a whole new level of tension and depth.  Thought it was just about perfect.

Final episode was excellent and did what it needed to do.

Also, I'm going to say that this show has some of the best directing ever seen on tv.  I would occasionally get annoyed by some of the kooky camera work, but when I settled in and just watched, i realized that it would eventually lead somewhere.

Edit: there were also brave choices in the writing.  Having Gomie killed off screen was very potent...and the show consistently had people die who didn't 'deserve' it.  They did a good job in just a few scenes showing the weight and impact of Hank being killed.

I'd give the overall series a 4/5.

PT is what?

XB1 exclusives: hopefully it's something I don't know about because nothing announced at E3 even so much as raised an eyebrow.

Be nice if you clowns would make with the specifics for those of us not following as closely.  ninja

From what I understand Kojima came out in a bikini and he's replacing Lara Croft in the XB1 exclusive version of Tomb Raider.

They didn't even really have a plan for the war other than to race for baghdad.  If they had consolidated as they went it would have made things more secure, but probably more bloody and protracted for the original invasion.

89  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamescom 2014 on: August 12, 2014, 03:40:34 PM
Tomb Raider is an odd pick.

I don't see it as a big enough franchise to be a system seller so why do it at all? It's likely not going to drive XB1 sales...

and their actions led to the dilution of quality and eventual break-up of Infinity Ward.  

I think titanfall points to the fact that not all of the problems with the IW core were Activision's fault and they had ceded COD A game developer title to Treyarch quite a while before that.

Also this:

I think Moliere's semi-serious point is that the dems have been blaming everything on Bush from the beginning and are still doing so.

Now obviously, he got us into this mess in Iraq by lying his ass off, but Obama has not necessarily been stalwart or focused or consistent in how he deals with foreign policy flares ups  in the middle east anywhere.

I went with a battlemage and a wayfarer as my two characters to avoid the cliche have one ranged guy and one melee guy.

However, they're inordinately weak in combat and have very few options spell/skill wise. I found a level 3 NPC and he had a host of more capable spells and such.

Did I just pick weak classes?

Listen to the Bombcast week in and week out but it's far less fun than it used to be. New blood seems to be making it more enjoyable, but Gerstmann has become so cynical about EVERYTHING that it just drains the life out of the show.

So naturally I type this and then finally get to the 7/22 podcast where Brad has taken over as host and it's the best show they've done in a long time. Lots of tangential conversations about movies, food and pooping.  Rykert is a character.

So now we're at war in Iraq again.

Woo! Put the troops in. Take the troops out. Put the troops in. Blood spilled all about.
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity : Original Sin on: August 10, 2014, 03:31:24 PM
I've spent about 5 hours in this game and I'm pretty sure it's not for me.

I am very very VERY bored at this point and the first quest is less than interesting as far as I'm concerned. Not really interested in running from building to building and searching every crate and basket for obscure clues about a quest I care very little about.

There's not enough combat and I'm finding the dialogue between party members confusing especially when i make them disagree and we have to do the RPS.

Sooo.  Unless there's a huge uptick in combat (lots of the fights are too hard too at this point) I guess I'm still looking for that game to tide me over until Divinity.

Have rediscovered the Cagcast from cheapassgamer. Used to be one of my favorites but I lapsed on it.  It's great to hear Cheapy and crew just talk about gaming with the wonder of gamers but also as guys who really kinda get the industry.

105  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Where do you stand on the crucial topic of hotdogs? on: August 07, 2014, 01:46:38 PM
Listen: I used to like hotdogs.  It was never a staple, but I was down for a dog ever once in a while.

Grilled.
Boiled.
Steamed.
Even heat roller dogs at fundraisers.

Buns, no buns.  Ketchup. Mustard. Onions. Pickles. Cheese sometimes. Put the kitchen sink on there (not into chili or relish).

Chicago style. Sure. 

Vendor dogs on the streets in the city. O'hale yus.

But now.  I pretty much find them revolting.  Don't like nathans anymore. Can't stand any of the other supermarket brands.  Trader Joe's organic- barf.  Only ones I kind of like are Salen's but even then I'd rather have just about anything else.

So what can be done?

In order to play a raid, you have to get 5 friends together (they don't allow matchmaking), all of whom have a few hours to play at a time.  That seems like a rather tall order.

They'll have to reverse the decision on matchmaking at some point i bet.
