I'm in the middle of a busy fight camp, but thanksgiving weekend should give me time to play around with the Division's new DLC.  Also bought some Black Friday deals for the Xbox like Homefront.

Nothing this week. I lied about not buying CoD: Infinite Warfare. Bought it mainly for MW: Remastered, Zombies, and the campaign.  The multiplayer (IMO) is horrible compared to BF1 and especially after Titanfall 2.

I saw it in IMAX 3D this afternoon...really cool movie. The visuals and action are awesome. They do a great job of establishing the character and open up the possibilities of a lot of really cool things for the future MCU films. My only complaint would be that the actual plot is pretty sparse and the bad guy pretty cookie-cutter, but it hardly matters when everything else is so well done. While it's not my favorite or the best Marvel film, it's definitely another very solid entry.

I highly recommend that anyone going to see this find a 3D showing. This is a film that really takes advantage of the medium and has very cool visuals that look great in 3D.

I usually don't go the 3D route, but I've been hearing that IMAX 3D is used so well that I will be making an exception tomorrow when I see it.  The last two times IMAX 3D has impressed me was Avatar and Dredd.

I'll be skipping Call of Duty this year. Still having fun will Gears 4 and Titanfall. Also the trial for BF1 is impressing me so I may pick that up

The campaign is going to take you less than 5 hours, especially if you don't try and find the collectibles, but it was actually pretty fun. It did have some difficulty keeping the action up, but it did some very clever things to keep the gameplay interesting. Mixing up sections in/out out the Titan, parkour/platforming, tons of weapons, and some surprising abilities.

You get to try 8 different titan load outs which gives you the opportunity to practice with the stuff you'll see in MP. Oddly, though, the grappling hook is not in the campaign.

It needs another iteration but I was pretty pleased. It was not just another CoD/Battlefield campaign.

I'm really enjoying the campaign side of things, and is a great addition to the multiplayer.  And I have to agree that the campaign, while not very long, is very well done and has been able to keep my interest. 
The last two Call of Duty games' campaign bores me to tears (in my opinion), and was only fun for me when I played coop with another person.  It just seemed like a really pretty shooting gallery.  For some context I really enjoy Battfield 4 and Battlefield 1 (from what I have played so far) single player portion.

Yay! Apparently EA and Respawn entertainment has stated that all new upcoming maps and modes will be free, so no season pass is needed.

Marines hate Barney (the dinosaur) with a passion, but only because we were tired of being taught "Barney" style throughout our whole career.

As I hoped, we're at least getting a little cosmetic (Liberty Cape) and a new weapon (a WWI era rifle -- must be a Battlefield 1 tie-in?  icon_smile) And various events today for Liberty Day, including devs popping in to play though I'm guessing that's on PS4.

Helldivers celebrating Liberty Day 2016! – Competitions, Livestream, Reddit AMA
Citizens of Super Earth,

Thanks to your bravery in the Galactic Wars we are once again able to wish you a magnificent Liberty Day!
 In celebration of this historical anniversary we are hosting some competitions and other events, as well as giving away free equipment to all Helldivers. Read on for full details.

New Liberty Day equipment

To celebrate Liberty Day all players will receive the new rifle M2016 ‘Constitution’ and the Liberty cape.

The M2016 ‘CONSTITUTION’ is a reproduction of the old M1903 service rifle used in ancient times. It is fairly ineffective in combat but is used within the Super Earth Armed Forces as a ceremonial rifle. Every citizen is issued one once they turn 16 to encourage service.
 While not recommended to bring into the field, it is certainly possible to use for the very skilled or the very brave.

The LIBERTY CAPE is given to every Helldiver so they will be able to celebrate the big day in style, while also showing their dedication to protecting the precious Liberty we enjoy today.

In addition to the new Liberty Day gear there are two more capes which have been added to the game – the Community Cape and the Developer Cape.

The COMMUNITY CAPE is given as a reward to outstanding individuals who have participated in – or helped out – the Helldivers community in various ways. Whether that be assistance in solving bugs, guiding new recruits, winning competitions or actively participating and engaging in forum discussions, these individuals can be distinguished from other recruits.

The DEVELOPER CAPE allows you to recognize members of the developer or publisher teams amidst the chaos of battle. (Shooting or badgering developers will not earn you any rewards, rather the opposite. We just wish to enjoy spreading democracy side by side!)
Also some fun "create your own" cape contests and a contest involving posting a comment on that blog URL's comments thread.

It's good to hear that this game is still going strong.  I haven't played in a while but I feel that itch coming back smile

Apparently Gears of War 4 is doing a similar thing to Forza Horizon 3 and it's version of the Ultimate Edition and Collector's Edition will be out early tomorrow. 

I bought my ultimate edition at midnight. The game downloaded extremely fast as was able to play a bit already.  I think Jarrodhk bought the ultimate edition as well smile

So far so good, great even.  I appreciate the slower start compared to Daredevil, and am enjoying the world building the first couple episodes.  Wasn't a fan of Jessica Jones, but Luke Cage is fantastic for me so far.

I wasn't used to the head guard, so it was a learning adjustment.  Florida commission has different rules than what I was used to.  Next fight will be on Jan 14th at Fort Myers, Florida

Much love, my friend. I hope you actually get to, you know, fight. biggrin

(I'd offer to lend you my arms, but I tore the medial head on my right bicep ... it's drastically smaller than my left right now and not at all impressive).

Thank you sir!

The drive was a little challenging due to the hurricane, but was able to navigate around the worst part of it

The accommodations are outstanding.  Four Points Sheraton here in Punta Gorda Florida.  

A light workout before weigh ins to make sure I hit my target weight

Made weight and after the weigh ins we decided to go eat at a crab house with a great view


Win or lose tomorrow, we have all decided to stick around the area until Labor Day and enjoy the city

I think part of it for me is there's just an overwhelming amount of choices.  I have every console out there, every portable, plus iOS and Android (on mobile and tablet).  It's just insane.  The "next big thing" is pretty much always happening and it's difficult to focus.  Pretty much any game, no matter how casual, requires some time investment for it to really feel like I'm getting into it, but with so many distractions I can never motivate myself to put the time in.  So maybe that's why going back to these old games offers more comfort value, I dunno.

This is a huge problem for me too.  So many choices and backlog.  If I'm tired I usually go the RPG or single player route, and coop when my friends are online.

Everything going smooth this fight camp. No injuries, and the weight came of relatively easy in three weeks.  On my way to my last training before I drive to Florida with my teammates and family. The only problem is that damn hurricane right in my path to the fight location.

When I get busy or am tired from the day, I rarely play.  I just veg out and pass out watching NetFlix or YouTube.  But during the weekend or days off I love my time gaming.

People on Steam are reporting that the preorder content and DLC is save locked, so you can only use it once. If you start a new game you need to repurchase the DLC through the SquareEnix content store.


Yeah that's some BS right there.

This post has  been viewed a bunch of times did this help anyone out?  Still happy with the chair over the last few days I think the purchase was worth it.

I've been on the fence about this brand of chair for a while now, so thanks for your impressions/review smile

I'm going to buy one next month
77  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: My amateur fighting career on: August 10, 2016, 01:36:42 AM
This will be one of my last two fights before I'm officially done and retired.  A little short notice, but always in shape so only 5-6 pounds to cut.  This time there will be four fighters for our gym going as well.

I should say I'm really interested to hear how you like the new chair as well, drifter!

That racing-style chair looks really cool and I am curious if you specifically got it for using with a wheel and pedals setup, or more for the general style and comfort. 

The main reason why I do not play MORE on my PC is due to a mediocre office chair.  I have a fairly large metal plate attached to my spine so it's really hard for long play sessions. Playing on my steam link in the living room fixes this to an extent but a nice gaming chair would be ideal.
