Bad choice of series then  icon_lol  I also hope the tide starts to turn soonish.

Considering how D&D have mishandled some plot points, I expect them to end the season on a scene that will cause a lot more people to give up on this show.

What do you think it could be?

Silly question but when they showed the pedals in the big War Rig, the brake had something written on it - a three letter word, perhaps Latin? Anyone recall what it was? Not having much luck googling it up.

Nux's car had Nux on the pedal.  I don't remember seeing anything in the war rig.

Sadly, the show has become bad fan fiction. It's George R. R. Martin's fault for not getting the books out in a timely manner, but the quality of the story has collapsed since the writers began broadly making stuff up as they went.

Are people not enjoying the show then? If so is it because it doesn't follow the books closely enough, the violence, or do they just don't think it is very good?

I don't think this season has been very good, but I had liked the show until then.

Saw this tonight and really enjoyed it.  It's definitely action movie to the extreme.  I thought there were quite a few references to the Road Warrior throughout.  Or previous films, at least.

A question about Furiosa

Spoiler for Hiden:
She said that she had made the trip to the green place many times before and that she wanted redemption...was she also involved in stealing girls from their home at some point?  She was obviously one of immortan Joes slaves at some point, due to her having been branded.  Why was she not a breeder?

38mm Sport model got delivered yesterday. I've been wearing it since. Holy fuck is it comfortable. Definitely more comfortable than any of the other watches I wear. I'm also super impressed with the rubber strap - its much nicer than any of the other rubber straps I own for my other watches (three), the least of which cost north of $50 so the quality is impressive given this thing was $350 total. Definitely a nicer rubber strap than you'd get with another $350 watch. The clasp is kind of finicky (I'm not used to this type of buckle) but I love the way the loose end tucks under. Really nice.

So far I'm pretty addicted to checking how my heart rate is doing, mostly because it shows me in better shape than I thought I was in.

Hey Siri works infinitely better than any other iteration of Siri for me... which was a surprise. I was actually able to dictate a couple of text messages with zero issues which has almost never happened with my iPhone.

I don't really love any of the faces... I guess I want something more in line with a mechanical watch and all of them have something about them I don't like. I've settled on Color for now but its still kinda meh.

Apps are hit or miss thus far. Some work great and make sense and others are DOONNNTCAAAARREEE. The coolest is Shazam.

My biggest complaint is that its not very Apple-y in the sense that there's no way I'd want my mom or girlfriend to have one of these. They'd be confused by everything other than telling time. I always thought that's the thing the Apple did well - it made sense to the non tech/non gadget people. This feels more Android-y than Apple-y, and thats not a good thing. But its also not shocking... This is a new form factor and a new way of interacting with technology. Apple probably still has to figure out whats intuitive and what isn't.

Happy I have one.

I am guessing you know, but just in case, the watch faces are really customizable as far as what data is displayed or even some of the UI elements.  Again I'm sure you know, but just throwing it out there.  Also, why 38?  I find even the 42 to be very small.

Yeah I've played with them all don't love any of them. I actually think that the analog ones annoy me less now. I guess there's just something artificial about the analog ones for me.

And I went with the 38 for two reasons:
1) I want this thing to be unobtrusive. I fundamentally find these watches to be ugly relative to a 'real' watch so I'm really just wearing it for function. Basically if I am not in a t-shirt, I'm going to be switching out for another of my other watches so for this use case, I wanted utilitarian and unobtrusive.
2) It was $50 cheaper.

The only time I wish it were bigger is if I am interacting with it, which isn't a lot to be honest. I think the 38 blends with the bracelet nicely and almost makes it look like an activity tracker, which is the look I want.

Regarding interaction, I am finding the glances to be just the right amount of interaction and launching the app seems to be slow and not really enjoyable.  I expect this to get better over time, but so far glances seem to be pretty nice bits of info that respond fairly well.

15 is the marker for a lot of enemy changes.  40, 50, and 60 are for visual/audio changes.   So with 50 I'm guessing you just had the memory bug going and had effectively been playing the game on easy mode.

Dang!  Ok well I guess I'll need to get better then.  I was really mowing down bosses, too!

Hmm everything seems more difficult since patch.  Monsters and bosses are even doing new moves I didn't see before update.

One of two things, either you had experienced the memory leak bug, or you just got insight to a gameplay altering level, though that only effects normal enemy abilities and not bosses.

Those bag men are jumping at me now before they "enrage" and they never did before.  Also doing some attack where they draw in white energy and explode.  New to me and I've killed dozens of them.

What's the insight level?  I'm around 50 I think?
Also doing the snow castle boss and he's doing a completely different set of attacks right from the get go.

I did use the resume function so my game was "on" for days at a time.

Along those lines, I think the new drop to main menu really sucks, even with the load times.  I used to be able to play in seconds on resume and now it's minutes for all the loading.

Game Informer reports the 1.03 patch to address load times has been released:

Quote from: Game Informer
From Software said it was working on a fix to hit this month, and now it's here. According to the Japanese PlayStation Blog, the patch improves the following:

  • Reduced loading times (approx. 5-15 seconds; may vary by circumstance)
  • Fixed bug that left certain lifts and elevators inoperable
  • Fixed bug that resulted in bosses becoming immobilized
  • Fixed bug that left players unable to advance NPC events during multi-play
  • When the PS4 is put into Rest Mode during online play, the game will now return to the main title screen upon resuming play
  • This will resolve matchmaking issues related to Suspend/Resume.

It reportedly also adjusted the loading screens to show item descriptions, rather than just the black and white game logo.

-Autistic Angel

Bummer about the resume to main menu thing.  It was nice to just resume and be playing within seconds.

Watching the Macrumors forums closely, it looks like particular models are the slowest to be going out, particularly those with the most popular (?) black sports band.  Mine has yet to even be charged yet so there's little hope of getting a shipment update.  I'd say there's a 50/50 chance of arriving Friday at this rate.  Frustrating but hopefully they'll work it all out. 

I have the same watch ordered and my email confirmation is from 12:04 AM from the 10th and I still haven't received a shipping status.  Mine is still processing.

Still processing.  4 mins after orders started and I still missed launch day!

My main issue with prequels is that generally speaking, they're attempting to build suspense when the audience already knows how it ends. It's like, you know how Star Wars Episode III ends, and it wasn't like it was going to have a twist ending or surprise you in the end (twirling/leaping CGI Yoda or not). I'm sure Rogue One will attempt to be an interesting journey but the destination (stealing Death Star plans) seems pretty set in stone.

And really, the Death Star? Again? For a third movie essentially?

And if you remember the beginning of Star Wars, none of the Rebel forces can hit the broad side of a barn at 5 paces with a blaster anyway.  retard Though maybe the Rogue One guys actually know how to aim and lead their targets.  icon_smile

And sure, I'll watch it anyway. icon_smile I guess I'm more keen on the possible Bobba Fett and maybe even a Darth Maul spin off movie, something where they build back story for an interesting, cool-but-marginalized/underdeveloped character.

The new, standalone films will be called Star Wars Anthology.  The first movie is Rogue One and the synopsis was revealed at Star Wars Celebration this past weekend.

"A band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans in Star Wars anthology film, Rogue One"

There's a piece of concept art here and a concept trailer that's kind of neat (shaky cam though)

DICE also confirmed that players can switch between a first-person or third-person viewpoint at will. This decision in particular, combined with so many of the different ways players can approach the battlefield, illustrates that player choice is high on DICE’s list of priorities.
