Just a heads up, Journey to the West is up on Netflix streaming.  If you even remotely enjoyed Kung Fu Hustle, you'll love this new film from the same director/star.  It's silly but extraordinarily fun.

I randomly grabbed Journey To The West through iTunes back in March. My expectations were pretty low, as I wasn't a huge fan of Chow's previous work, but the 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes intrigued me.

It's a retelling of the 16th Century Chinese novel, as only Chow could do. I absolutely adored this film. It's by turns hilarious, ridiculous, thrilling, terrifying, and touching. Not everything about it works (some of the effects are pretty sketchy, but that might be by design), but it's just such a wonderfully fun ride that I can't help but recommend it. There were moments that had me laughing so hard the guy next to me on the plane kept giving me strange looks.

If you enjoy Chow's work at all, or are just in the mood for something fun and a little different, don't miss it. I'm guessing it's going to sadly fly under most folk's radar, which is a real shame.

I've had Comcast cable and internet service for going on 17 years now, and can count the number of issues on one hand.  Even when one does arise, they've been pretty quick to get it fixed, and their people have all be quite nice (even if they don't seem like the sharpest knives in the drawer).  

Guess I should just consider myself lucky.

That you are probably paying entirely too much compared to what some countries in Europe or Asia get for their money should make you a little bit unhappy with them.

I suppose, but then you could say that about a lot of things.

Okay fools I clearly am bad with explaining this. They are just plain old creepy. I don't need a side of "Jesus" with my sandwich. Period. Even my wife, who almost never complains, says he same thing . She stopped saying "thank you", because the conversation would go like this. "Thank you", "My pleasure, my pleasure, my pleasure, my pleasure". If you don't say thank you, the following doesn't happen in spades. She even filled out a comment card stating "enough with crazy amounts of MY PLEASURE!".

It just feels like Jesus meets twin peaks is the best way to describe it...

I'll ask again, what does any of this have to do with religion?  "Over the top" customer service has always been a Chic-fil-a trademark, but I'm having trouble connecting that to religion in any significant way.  If their response was "MY PLEASURE, JESUS LOVES YOU", then I could see the complaint.  Otherwise, they're just being overly friendly.

Not saying it isn't creepy (it kinda is), but I don't think it has anything to do with religious beliefs.

The location by me is so freaking bizarre and they are getting to me. Everytime I say thanks, they say, "my pleasure". Like over and over and over again. I go through the drivethru one day and see a person outside taking orders. So I say oh the microphone or something must be broke, just making small talk. Her response was that they want to serve me better to make sure that I'm pleased. Overboard. I just want my sandwich ! There's always local church members in there for what I believe is hrs talking to the managers etc. Most of the time it's just comical, but sometimes it's way too much. When they ask what I'm doing on said day and I say just running errands or what have you, please don't further nag me for details! I want a sandwich, give me that sandwich! Rant over.

And this has anything to do with religion because...?   icon_confused

Patch 2.3 was released this week, which brings a ton of new additions.  Wild Hunts (similar to FF XII), a new PvP mode, multiple new dungeons, a continuation of the main storyline, chocobo raising, on and on.  Most of the new content is intended for high level, so I'm very excited to get going on it.  Bard is now at iLvl 94 with an atma weapon, working on my animus books (got 2 of 9 complete).  All this new stuff should keep me busy until the expansion next year.  smile

17  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Changes in gaming habits over the years... on: July 10, 2014, 03:48:09 AM
I've seen a seismic shift in my gaming habits over the last 5 years.  Part of it is due to having kids (hence a lot less free time), but there have been some other big changes as well.

-  I've pretty much given up on consoles.  There isn't a single game that interests me enough to buy either of the current gen systems.  I had a Vita, but it collected dust and I sold it.  Have a DS, but haven't really played anything on it except Bravely Default.  The only game on the horizon that might get me to make the leap is Final Fantasy XV, and even that's iffy at this point.

-  I've really gotten into MMO's, which is a sentence I never thought I'd utter.  Guild Wars 2 and SWTOR were the ones that really got me hooked, and I've tried a ton of them since:  Rift, Tera, Neverwinter, Secret World, Aion, even WoW.  I rarely get to the end game stuff (not having much gaming time doesn't really lend itself to high end raid content), but I've spent at least 50-100 hours with each of these.  Final Fantasy XIV is the one exception, and it has completely taken over my gaming life for the past 6 months.  It's made me realize how much fun these things really can be, and I can see myself playing it for a long time.

-  I have little patience to learn complex games anymore.  If something doesn't grab me right off, I tend to shelve it very quickly and move on to something else.  I want games to be fun, not overly frustrating.  I also find that having more disposable income means I have less connection to the games I buy.  Used to be that I could only buy one or two games a month, so I made damn sure I got my money's worth.  I don't have that burning desire anymore, and have no problem giving up on a game if it's not clicking with me.

-  I played a ton of iOS games when I got my first iPad, but I've really cooled on that scene lately.  Everything simply seems like a clone of a clone of a clone, and there isn't much that is terribly interesting.  I also don't enjoy physics puzzlers or tower defense games, which seem to make up 90% of what's out there for iOS.  Every once in a while something comes along that I spend time with, but they're becoming few and far between.

Overall, I feel like I'm really starting to disconnect from the hobby. Since I don't care for open world or military games, I'm not into multiplayer FPS, and my favorite genre (JRPG) is all but dead these days, there simply isn't anything out there that I'm overly excited about.  Looked at the E3 coverage this year and realized there were literally only one or two games coming in the next year that I had any interest in at all.  I'm sure I'll never give up on the hobby entirely, but it's certainly not nearly the focus it used to be.

Brodie. I had forgotten he was killed and I thought for sure I remembered a scene of him still sitting on the corner at the end of the show…but apparently that was at the end of one of the other seasons.  It was a gut punch.

While not a death, the one that got me the worst was

Spoiler for Hiden:
Dookie.  Seeing him go from being the one kid in the bunch with promise to shooting up in a back alley was heartbreaking

The death that got to me was actually very early on:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Wallace.  Watching him beg for his life from Bodie and Pooh was just brutal.  Especially since he was basically in charge of raising all the other neighborhood kids

the poor have no problem attaining a drivers license, in most instances. and even if it's a big problem, i'd be all for offering them assistance to get it. just as long as they got it. lets remove any possibility of fraud out of the voting process. why is that a bad thing?

Yep, no problems at all.  (Fireball had an excellent breakdown of this a while back as well, but my search skills are failing me.  Maybe it was over at OO.)

Quote
Ten states now have unprecedented restrictive voter ID laws. Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin all require citizens to produce specific types of government-issued photo identification before they can cast a vote that will count. Legal precedent requires these states to provide free photo ID to eligible voters who do not have one.

Unfortunately, these free IDs are not equally accessible to all voters. This report is the first comprehensive assessment of the difficulties that eligible voters face in obtaining free photo ID.

The 11 percent of eligible voters who lack the required photo ID must travel to a designated government office to obtain one. Yet many citizens will have trouble making this trip. In the 10 states with restrictive voter ID laws:

    Nearly 500,000 eligible voters do not have access to a vehicle and live more than 10 miles from the nearest state ID-issuing office open more than two days a week. Many of them live in rural areas with dwindling public transportation options.
    More than 10 million eligible voters live more than 10 miles from their nearest state ID-issuing office open more than two days a week.
    1.2 million eligible black voters and 500,000 eligible Hispanic voters live more than 10 miles from their nearest ID-issuing office open more than two days a week. People of color are more likely to be disenfranchised by these laws since they are less likely to have photo ID than the general population.
    Many ID-issuing offices maintain limited business hours. For example, the office in Sauk City, Wisconsin is open only on the fifth Wednesday of any month. But only four months in 2012 — February, May, August, and October — have five Wednesdays. In other states — Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas — many part-time ID-issuing offices are in the rural regions with the highest concentrations of people of color and people in poverty.

More than 1 million eligible voters in these states fall below the federal poverty line and live more than 10 miles from their nearest ID-issuing office open more than two days a week. These voters may be particularly affected by the significant costs of the documentation required to obtain a photo ID. Birth certificates can cost between $8 and $25. Marriage licenses, required for married women whose birth certificates include a maiden name, can cost between $8 and $20. By comparison, the notorious poll tax — outlawed during the civil rights era — cost $10.64 in current dollars.

The result is plain: Voter ID laws will make it harder for hundreds of thousands of poor Americans to vote. They place a serious burden on a core constitutional right that should be universally available to every American citizen.

This November, restrictive voter ID states will provide 127 electoral votes — nearly half of the 270 needed to win the presidency. Therefore, the ability of eligible citizens without photo ID to obtain one could have a major influence on the outcome of the 2012 election.

And this one,

And to answer your question, the only game I've played released in 2014 is Kinect Sports Rivals and it is not my game of the year.

2013's 2014 Game of the Year would be Battlefield 4.

I'm pretty much in the same boat.  The only two 2014 games I've spent any significant time with are Thief (which I quite enjoyed) and Bravely Default (which I enjoyed half of).  Neither are GOTY material.

Interestingly, I've probably spent much more time gaming overall in 2014 than I have in most of the previous years.  It's just all been spent with updates of games that released in 2013 (Final Fantasy 14) or 2012 (Diablo 3).  So my 2013 GOTY for 2014 would be FF XIV, and it's not even close.  It's actually become one of my top 3 games of all time, which I never would have expected when I started.

Gund? As in the stuffed animal company?

Gund, as in Gordon Gund, the former Cavs owner.

The Banner Saga coming to tablets this summer

Quote
Stoic's viking-themed tactical role-playing game, The Banner Saga, is coming to iOS and Android tablet devices this summer, publisher Versus Evil announced.

The tablet version of the game will be exactly the same as the full Mac and Windows PC version, which launched in January this year. The controls have been optimized for touch and swipe inputs

I tried 3-4 times to get into Banner Saga on PC, and it just never clicked.  It's a game that I really want to like though...a big part of the problem was that I was simply distracted by other stuff.  Hopefully an iOS version that I can dedicate some time to on long flights will be a good solution.
