Much love! Thanks biggrin

(I have so many fond memories of this game).

I feel like I could ... like I could ... TAKE ON THE WORLD!!

A buddy offered to take a pic of me curling. This is from my second arm day of last week (wed, then this is fri). Problem was that I had also fasted for 90hrs at this point (taking in less than 400KCal a day through butter and MCT oil in my coffee), and this was half-way through a drop set (so the bar + weight is 125lbs, and the set was pretty dirty - my shoulders should be more forward).

It is probably the best pic of the damage in a side-by-side.

Almost makes me want to go through surgery again to fix it. Almost.

It's back to form - I can manage 4 slow reps of 145lbs (drop sets)  on scots curls (aka spider curls, aka the north face of the preacher bench).

Windows 10 is cheap from the Friends and Family store (I have a friend who's an MSFT employee).

I think I could buy 10/year of Win10Pro for $25CAD each, and with 8 logins, be able to sell them for a profit. I think the home version is $10CAD, so what, 25 of them for sale? (or something like that - it's not very expensive as a digital download)

My point being that you could get a legit copy for that much - but in my experience I bought a key for Office 2013 from an ebay seller. It worked initially, but when I had to reinstall it failed. I contacted them and they reset it / gave me another key. I don't use it any more but that would be my only concern.

Here's a pic. You can notice in the inside bend of my right elbow (this is not a mirrored shot, so my right, your left) that my bicep is seated a half-inch higher than the left.

Anyone interested in getting better could do worse than to spend some time on this site : https://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-US/how-to-play-tips/index.aspx

Just finished watching.  This is the type of game the more you know, the more fun it is. 
Dynasty Warriors is like playing connect four, and playing For Honor is more like Chess slywink

The two tutorials really don't give you all the ins and outs of all the mechanics and had to do some homework to figure a bunch of stuff out. Luckily the main Ubisoft For Honor website gives you some good info and videos

Yay DW.

Boo tech fighting.

YOU CANNOT DEFEAT LU BU!!!

 (when is Omega Force going to make a better DW?!)

I have, in my mind, equated For Honour to a modern day Die By The Sword and Ryse: Son of Rome. I just don't have the time or interest to dive into a technical fighter like that. :/

I don't know the details of the beta, or the availability of keys, but my Valentines Day would be so much better with an invite on either XB1 or PC. slywink

cg_purge is my Ubisoft account. CG as in ConsoleGold. Yeah, it's that old.

Really looking forward to this one.

Thinking of going PC, after reading Ron's writeup

http://gamingtrend.com/2017/01/25/freedom-to-act-tom-clancys-ghost-recon-wildlands-hands-on-preview/

I want that lethality to be keyboard and mouse. slywink

I was walking up to a chinup bar, leapt up and one hand missed. Thought to myself "Justin, you're strong enough to recover..."

Tried to grab on the left side again but due to the momentum from walking forward, I started backswinging and missed on the left again. My right arm then took my entire body pulling it on one side, tearing out my bicep from my forearm.

TL;DR? Accidental cross-fit.

This moment also destroyed for me the standard cinematic trope of catching yourself with one arm while falling any significant distance. Nevermind joint dislocation - your tendons can snap too.
19  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Gaming: Meh. on: January 18, 2017, 01:52:03 PM
Phantom Dust cancelled, Scalebound cancelled.

Overwatch? Puhleeze. Not everything needs to be online arena games.

Anyways, I'm chugging through FFXV and oddly enough, my son and I are enjoying the hell out of coop Master Chief Collection. I briefly owned a PS4 last year, and I suspect Second Son is probably the last game I actually completed.

GotG isn't something you need background to. In fact, I barely knew most of the characters before watching it (and certainly not the way they were presented).

Similar to Ant-Man, it felt like a better "movie" than a lot of the MCU / DC films have been.

In other words, I am Groot.
21  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Never EVER give 110% .... on: January 18, 2017, 01:33:26 PM
I never really got good ones that show the damage. I could show the result AFTER corrective surgery. I'm at 95% capacity now (max spider/scots curls was in a drop set of 4x145lbs, 6x95lbs, 8x75lbs).

It's good to be back to pushing heavier. Now I just gotta grind away at getting my bench back to where I was.

I enjoyed the droid, the death star, and Vader, and that the visual representation is very close to Ep IV.

Otherwise, it was decidedly meh for me.

"You already own all 7 games."  Sure am glad I jumped through those hoops for the last seven months for everyone else to get the same reward for showing up once.

I know, right?  I realize it is just a nice gesture on their part, but it does feel like a bit of a waste now.

So, going into a crappy advent calendar every day for 22 days isn't punishment enough? slywink

Now on Xbox One. If you owned it for 360, it's free if you snag it within the next 18 days.

I don't have the expansions for PC- I have the game and the season pass for XB1, then got the game with my GTX 970. Love it on PC (moments I was dreading from console play were a breeze on PC).

Ugh. I don't have any "friends" on Uplay or Steam:Budget edition. Makes for a lonely city unless I want to put up with randoms.

I don't think clicking Not Interested actually affects the sales lists.  Or at least not all of them.

I have said I'm not interested in stupid soccer and anime games so many times that they should never show up anywhere, but they still come up in at least some of the featured/recommended/highlighted sections.   *Fist Shaking*

BUY PES2017 NOW!

While I agree with your "bullet sponge", I found that were I to go for marksman, I could ride the upgrade train to 25/26 with one-shot-kills.

There are bunnies in Van'adiel who's fur is strong enough to withstand a flurry of sword blows and maybe even fire. RPG's simply don't land on this side of reality.

Here's to hoping the new Ghost Recon gets the TC lethality right.

Tango Down, indeed.
