If everyone in this country had to serve at some point (South Korea, Thailand, Venezuela, etc) I believe we would be a lot more hesitant to have boots on ground

I preordered the XB1 S (2 terabytes)
Mostly because my XB1 is having a hard time reading blu ray movies and games.

I broke my toe early April, just 3 weeks before the fight.  It was our last hard sparring session and my partner and I got hurt from our very last exchange. I kicked his ribs and broke a few while simultaneously breaking my big fat toe

Anybody still playing Vermintide?  I know a lot people liked it when it came out, but I haven't heard much since then.

I still play with randoms every now and then. It's much better now as of late with the loot changes and new modes

Probably FF XIV and continue working through Grim Dawn

Lots of both games.  Started leveling my Ninja in FFXIV, which has been far more fun than the other melee classes I've tried.

I'm finding I have a strange relationship with Grim Dawn.  Some days, I feel like I could play it for hours.  Other days, I'm bored within 10 minutes.

Grim Dawn has been a pleasant surprise for me. While I did buy it early, I never got around to play it until it's 1.0 release.

Gratch, I don't think Starpoint Gemini 2 is something you need a joystick for.  It plays more like a 3D version of Starfleet Command.

Never played Starfleet Command, but SG2 looked like something that would be perfect for a HOTAS setup.  I even stumbled across a very detailed article on how to set one up properly.  Maybe it's better to stick with keyboard/mouse though?

Give the HOTAS a try first Gratch. Curious to see how it plays with that. Probably helps with immersion if nothing else

the chests were all changed in recent patch.  The DZ 30 chests now have purples instead of blues and are worth it for crafting materials if nothing else.  The DZ Key chests have a chance for HE loot.

FWIW, the key chests don't require any rank, just a key.  DZ 50 is where the real rewards are though in the form of HE stuff and blueprints.  Wish you were with us Otter, we just hit 50.

I found 2 high end loot from key cheats since the patch

I didn't realize that this was actually the first full movie for director Tim Miller.  Pretty impressive directing debut, I'd say (though he had worked in visual effects and videogame cinematics before).

Wasn't Tim Miller with Blur Studios? If so they make the best video game cinematics IMO.  Glad his first movie is such a great success.  I wonder who they will cast as Cable for the next movie

Great movie but WTH parents why are there kids like 7 years old at the movie?  Congrats to the Mom and her 4 kids all young that now know what exactly a strip club is like inside and what goes on in there.

This happened to me Sunday afternoon. Two ladies bring in about 5 kids that looked to be under the age of 6.  In just 10 minutes into the movie the ladies really started to panic and quickly exited from the theatre.

Did anybody bother to look at the Official Design Works book that's included with the PC version?  It's actually a really cool and thorough 313 page art book.  Lots of paintings and renderings and concept art with some commentary alongside it.

The only problem is that it's a giant PDF and viewing those things just chugs regardless of PC specs.   disgust

Wow, I had no idea the art book was this incredible. But yeah, I have a decent system and its painful to to browse through frown

I enjoy the series, more so the second one (Anarchy) and I'm glad Frank Grillo is back. I've always though that he would have been a great Punisher, which he basically was in Purge: Anarchy

Well, here's some great news:

Bryan Fuller will be the showrunner.

http://io9.gizmodo.com/hannibals-bryan-fuller-is-producing-the-new-star-trek-t-1758068994

Quote
This is the best possible choice. Bryan Fuller—who worked on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager back in the day, before going on to create Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls and Hannibal—will be the showrunner of the new Star Trek TV show.

In a statement, Fuller was quoted as saying:

My very first experience of Star Trek is my oldest brother turning off all the lights in the house and flying his model of a D7 Class Klingon Battle Cruiser through the darkened halls. Before seeing a frame of the television series, the Star Trek universe lit my imagination on fire. It is without exaggeration a dream come true to be crafting a brand-new iteration of Star Trek with fellow franchise alum Alex Kurtzman and boldly going where no Star Trek series has gone before.
Fuller has been trying to get a Star Trek series off the ground for nearly a decade. Back in 2008, he told IF Magazine:

I told my agent and told the people of J.J. Abrams team I want to create another STAR TREK series and have an idea that I’m kicking around. I would love to return to the spirit of the old series with the colors and attitude. I loved VOYAGER and DEEP SPACE NINE, but they seem to have lost the ‘60s fun and I would love to take it back to its origin.
The new Trek series (which is being executive produced by Alex Kurtzman) will premiere on CBS in 2017, before moving to CBS’ digital “CBS All Access” platform.

Entertainment Weekly points out that Fuller has teased a few different ideas for Star Trek TV shows in the past. At one point, he said it would be interesting to see how the Next Generation era looks, in the altered timeline of the recent J.J. Abrams films. In another interview, he said it would be cool to have a show that follows another starship, the U.S.S. Reliant, and that he’d love to cast Angela Bassett as the captain and Rosario Dawson as the first officer.

Fuller is already showrunner of the American Gods series on Starz, and is also spearheading the new version of Amazing Stories.


Wow! Loved Pushing Daises and Hannibal. This is fantastic news. When Fuller is allowed to do his thing (creative freedom) great things happen....whether people watch the show or not

Ack. I kept myself on media blackout for Xcom 2, as the first title was one of my favorite games of the past few years. Bought it sight unseen from Steam, just loaded it up on my HTPC....and realized that it doesnt have xbox controller support.

My own fault, as the store page clearly does not list it, but I never thought a sequel would take gameplay options out. Is anyone using the Steam gamepad? If so, does it work well?

I'm using the steam controller and it works well. There is even an official configuration from Firaxis on there as well as the community ones that improve on it even further

you would probably really like the latest CoD, it's a lot like an updated Black Ops 1 or 2 which I know you enjoyed. 

I did hear that it was pretty good. I'll likely hold off until the new game comes out in November before diving back into the franchise, but there's always the chance that I'll fall off the wagon.

I'll probably just stick to BO3 instead of picking up the new one.  Slim chance I'll get the next Sledgehammer game and almost zero chance I'll get the next IW one.

Same with me. IW and sledgehammer these last two years have been bad buying decisions I have regretted.  Treyarch seems to do no wrong and have always been able to pull me back into CoD. 

Glad you got an XB1, you get to cherry pick the best titles over the last couple years

Price right now is a great deal IMO
