Fumble and I just played a match of Breakout where we won 5-1.  3 of the round victories were flag caps on my part, and the last was a kill while carrying the flag just as I was about to cap it again.  The other team was utterly oblivious to the fact that I was making a point of capping the flag.

I had a bit less success at it the match before, but it was still pretty exciting to make unmolested flag runs in that mode.

I'm loving breakout and swat modes for Halo.  While I love Warzone, I wish there were more maps for it and I miss the Co-op horde mode firefight

Played Battleborn Closed Technical Test and I'm impressed so far.   Totally ignored Destiny this weekend and played Wasteland 2 Director's Cut, but I think I'll be putting Destiny on the back burner for the time being.    I'm actually looking forward to Fallout 4 next week

Hey SoulChilde, do you have favorable impressions for Wasteland on the XB1? I need a single player game to play when I'm offline come December vacation.

Hope I didn't miss a post where this was previously discussed, but did anyone else get the new dashboard preview?  Not just the app where you can try backwards comparability and whatnot,  the full 1.1gb "now my dashboard looks even more like a squareboard website" update.  WHY!?  Now I know the movie "Idiocracy" isn't just a funny movie, its a documentary.  Stupid is winning.

I did and then immediately rolled it back. Buggy as hell. Apps keep crashing and video playback (streaming movies) doesn't work most of the time

I felt like Inside Out was trying soooooo hard to punch me right in the feels...and every swing just completely missed.  Everyone around me was in tears, and I just thought 'meh'.  I'm wondering if I simply wasn't in the right mood the day I saw it.  Need to go back and watch it again and see.

Then again, I had the same reaction to all of the Toy Story movies.  I usually love Pixar films, but those just never connected with me at any level.

I watched this yesterday with my wife, son, and in laws. They all were teary eyed and emotional, while I just sat there like an android. 
I'm with you Gratch, maybe we need to be in the right state of mind to fully appreciate this film. Or maybe we are just cold hearted bastards slywink

Yeah, crazy news. Before he signed with this new Japanese promotion Fedor was claiming he is coming back to fighting so he can fight the best in the world.  Guess he needs a tune up fight.

I am 18 days out for my final fight of the year in Detroit, Michigan.  Had a few setbacks from injuries, but finally feel that everything is coming together nicely.  World Champ Joe Sittisak is back from Thailand as my partner, as I will be his training partner when he fights in Vegas next month. 

In April 2016, Phoenix Arizona, the Muay Thai open tournament http://usmuaythaiopen.com/the-u-s-muay-thai-open-is-back-for-2016/ will be taking place and if I win my weight class I have a chance to go pro at age 39! If that happens, I will most likely turn it down because my body can't keep this shit up and I don't need the money anyways.

Got an XBox One a bit ago with the Walmart dealie ($350 2 controllers, gears of war + additional game). Popped in Gears of War figuring I'd just play a bit of it. Ended up playing a bunch of hours of the campaign. Probably haven't played it since it initially came out on the 360.

The new coat of shiny paint looks great. Some of the locations like the mining caverns which has liquid neon yellow water is pretty stunning to see. The gameplay is quite fun too. Not sure the last time I played a GoW game (probably some of 3) but it's quite fun. They also tweaked some of the areas. I recall the driving section of the game, where you have to hit the bats with a UV Ray were so frustrating. Can recall when I finished that section, after dieing over and over, I had a sliver of health. Now it was no probelm finishing.  They definitely made that section easier.

Also tried out the streaming to PC feature. Super easy to connect and start streaming. It streams fine for me without any noticeable  latency. But you can tell the graphics are a lot dimmer and more muddy. I'm running on very high but not sur if it's actually streaming at that rate.

In any case pretty neat feature and can see using it when the TV is occupied.


Nice!!! Welcome to the xbox family. Do you plan to play any multiplayer or coop?

Quote from: Andrew Wonser on September 13, 2015, 01:55:19 AM

Listened to the news on NPR and the one question I had was answered from the link. Namely were they underperforming because of lack of ability or because their male counterparts felt, even if not true, like that had to help. Also like a couple quotes at the end saying they are not closing the book on having women serve as infantry. Need more time and training. Think that new tech will also be something that helps out.

I'll have to go ahead and try to find that NPR segment as I find this subject a fascinating debate.

Another small thing I wanted to add. My fellow veterans here at GT know that personnel in a unit (platoon/squad/fire team) must not only know their own job, but be proficient below and above their current role in the team.

I used to think that the Marines were a bit cruel assigning me a heavy gunner MOS. I competed boot camp weighing 135 lbs, then graduates school of infantry 6 months later at 150lbs. It is undoubtedly the heaviest and most strenuous load to carry in light infantry. The wisdom is that I would eventually become strong enough to be effective even with my smaller frame. 
I understand that the Marine Corps data was taken over a year, I just want to know what kind of preparation these female Marines had before throwing them into a line unit

Study finds all male units more effective than units with females.

Great read! I suspect those percentages would be a lot closer together if the physical assessment requirements for women are the same as men during the screening process. That is....qualifying to just get into Marine Corps Bootcamp, to graduate boot camp, and especially to graduate from School of Infantry (6 months of hard training) that the men already do.
This all starts at the very beginning and while most women that go through the same process as their male counterparts would fail, the women that pass would most likely succeed in a line unit.

To be fair Arclight, I know that you served in a "different" time, as did I. But you know that the women that did giggle are just POGs and  probably never hold a rifle until they have to re-qual at the range.  Men are just as guilty doing that as well, and i can't blame them. Those rear echelon types have a different job and role.  The women that desire to become Rangers or any other elite force WILL take this shit seriously.

Yikes Kato, I served about the same time you did and don't consider it a different time!

I can't speak to combat because I was in the AF noncombat job, but in jobs that I had that required lots lot grunt work or weapons, the majority of the women were not going to give anyone a chance to say they couldn't hack it, they made sure of it. Sure there were women who couldn't do everything thrown at them, but there were just as many guys who couldn't either.

Honestly, Arclight's might be ok if he was 90 and that was the culture, but it honestly it isn't deserving of a reply.

Yeah yeah you're right. It's just that in my final years instructing Rangers, and even now teaching military personnel combatives, these new active duty guys/gals are a truly a different kind of animal slywink

The bottom line is that if a man or women desires to be in a combat MOS or go for that elite tab, they will take the training seriously or fail.
Just for some context, I was infantry for 3 years before I passed the force recon course and I failed twice before I finally succeeded.  At only 135 lbs I struggled and was only able to succeed gaining 15 lbs of muscle.  I can only imagine the challenge a female will go through doing the same thing I did.

To be fair Arclight, I know that you served in a "different" time, as did I.
