      Thanks to some hard work from @Emblazon, the themes should all be functioning as expected again, with some enhancements/cleanups that he's put in. Please let us know if you spot anything that still seems to be amiss so that we can take care of it.

  2. Lets me tell you...if you got kids.....this is some very fun stuff. So I saw a preview about this a month ago and I decided to bite. We picked up the starter pack last week. I got 12 new rechargable AA Batteries form Amazon as well. 4 go in each gun and 4 go in the wifi base. You need a smartphone Apple or Android.....it doesn't need phone service..just wi-fi so an iPod Touch or old cell phone will work..you just need the recoil app and wi-fi to work on the device. Set up took 15 min the first tome and 5 min after that. You have basically two hit detectors..one on the gun and one you clip onto yourself...it creates kind of like a center mass zone of your body and works well while playing. You have different game modes and the phone is less augmented reality than status and info and tactical decisons.....for instance..there are spawn drops of loot like a armored vest..it will indicate the direction and how many feet..you run tot eh coordinates and pick it up...there's also tactical items like a missile strike that can be deployed.....etc....it really makes you not just sit and stick in cover the whole time. You can snipe from cover..but if the other guy gets that air strike....guess what bitch.....you better be moving...you get a warning and see the blast radious area and you better get out of it before that strike lands. The sound effects are really good and you even can communicate with your teamates using PTT This is a very solid version of laser tag that you can take and play anywhere. They have new and different weapons, but the base guns are fun. They even have grenades. Supposedly there will be weapons with real augmented reality components as well like a sniper rifle....up to 16 people can play at once. https://www.amazon.com/Recoil-Starter-Grenade-Shooter-Skyrocket/dp/B072FQDKNY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1503319094&sr=8-1&keywords=recoil+laser+tag Video
  3. Future SWITCH games you're going to buy/download

    Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle LEGO Worlds Super Mario Odyssey The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Xenoblade if it releases this year..
  4. My family is in the midst of renovation hell. We are doing 3 things....a bump out of the existing structure....basically rebuilding up the main and top floors, and changing the roof slope from front to back to the sides. Basically we are creating a big boxy looking house....creating the most interior space inside for the cheapest $$. July 20th first day of remodel Last week We signed paperwork back on March..took till July 19th to get permits. Our GC is working at a snails pace and is an all around piece of shit. We'd fire him if we could but it'll take a year or two to fight to get our money back in court. The County and City I live in is super fucking hostile towards lower middle class families.... they classified our remodel as new home construction....this allowed them to force us to change a lot of stuff that doesn't even touch on the house remodel....(fire sprinklers 15K, a new 1" water pipe from street to house $18K, new sidewalk and steps $4K) We failed our first footing inspection last week....asyou can see form the pic they didn't bother to cover the area with tarps so it was a muddy mess. They covered it over the weekend, but I tried to explain that it should be open on completely sunny days to dry it out.especially when it's been in the 90's...what the fuck do I know right.......instead it looks like it trapped the heat and water inside and produced more condensation. Anyway Interior shots We had two bedrooms and I 1 half bath in the converted attic (apparently the bathroom was put in illegally). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Apple Wants to Offer $50 Film Rentals After Two Weeks

    Bingo.... even for matinees the cost of tickets to see a family movie for me is exactly 48.50. Snacks...another $24.00. If they could get it down to $40.....that would be the sweet spot.
  6. Any Game you bought on Switch that you regret?

    If I had payed $60 for NBA Playgrounds ...maybe After the updates for $20 it is a decent game that I have a lot of fun with...mostly when I go head to head with my 3 kids... Luckily I've really not had much of a garbage game experience since the mid to late 90's. Anyone who was a kid in the late 80's early 90's knows the real pain of spending what is now $70 to $90 for Shaq Fu or Super Pitfall...or Festers Quest.
  7. Warcraft 3 gets an update and a public test realm

    better yet get it working on my ipad
  8. "Samus Edition" New Nintendo 3DS XL Announced

    i wish the image was flipped on the top so when its open Samus ain't upside down.
  9. North Korea has produced a missile-fitted nuclear warhead.

    That has been the the exact response for the past two decades.....it's not a bad response....just that it's really not that different.
  10. North Korea has produced a missile-fitted nuclear warhead.

    What's funny is all the hate on Russian message boards yesterday.....those guys were praising Trump to high heaven up until yesterday.....now he's a bully.
  11. North Korea has produced a missile-fitted nuclear warhead.

    Until other nations go nuclear and demand the same treatment. The better their missiles get..the more they can demand. That's not a healthy course of action either. I don't mind feeding the poor and hungry...but not at gunpoint North Korea is not a rational actor in any of this. China didn't want a nuclear North korea...and they had zero power to stop it. Now South Korea and Japan are mulling nukes of their own.....not a direction China wants to go in.... As I said..kicking the can down is a choice...it might be fine and it might be even worse...
  12. North Korea has produced a missile-fitted nuclear warhead.

    What gave you the idea that China has any real influence over North Korea?
  13. North Korea has produced a missile-fitted nuclear warhead.

    China has no desire to help the US. And why should they? Their control over NK is pretty much non existent too. The only reason they don't do anything is because they don't want to deal with A. A humanitarian crisis within NK and B. A Korean Pennisula leaning towards the US. The status quo is perfectly fine for China
  14. North Korea has produced a missile-fitted nuclear warhead.

    4 Options Do nothing and kick the can down the road and just accept the fact that their tech will improve and hope they chill Try appeasement by dropping sanctions...literally get blackmailed (hope other nations in similar situations don't get the same idea) Decaptiation Attack Full Scale War All of these suck...first step is to pull out of South Korea. Then we'll see how much they think it isn't a big deal.
