Baseball needs to unban amphetamines

23 July 2014 - 04:02 PM

I'm watching this thing on mlb right now about the proposition of creating an illegal defense rule that would prevent the defense from putting to many players on one side of second base. The point of this is to increase the number of hits, which are at their lowest since the introduction of the dh.

I have a different idea. Allow players to take greenies again. The banning of amphetamines has had a much bigger effect on baseball than testing for steroids. hitters, who play day in and day out are playing with no rest (or amphetamines) against pitchers who are on 5 days of rest.

That's the reason baseball has devolved into pitchers battles and is more boring than its ever been. Either decrease the number of games or allow hitters to take amphetamines again

Curiosity up in this bitch

What do you think of "early access" games?

20 June 2014 - 01:39 PM

I suppose I don't have any real reason to hate them, yet somehow the whole think irks me. They get people to pay a premium to buy alpha versions of games, without any promise the thing will ever actually work? Do you have to re-purchase the game once it's done?

I guess the thing that irks me is that it seems like half the sales on Steam these days are for early access games.

TV croaked

13 June 2014 - 12:57 AM

I bought a Panasonic plasma in 2011. Wasn't a top of the line one, but it was good. It recently croaked, and of course I never bother with extended warranties because it always seems like an assraping at the time.

So I'm in the market for a new TV. I have a soft ceiling of about $600 and a firm ceiling of about $700.

Does anyone make decent plasmas anymore? Though I'm not even sure I want to get another plasma. The picture is awesome but those fuckers put out so much heat. The temperature of my room has dropped noticeably since my TV broke.

Anyone know of any deals going on/coming up soon? I probably won't be able to actually make the purchase until early July because of a trip I'm taking at the end of the month.

I legitimately just threw a controller

Oh, man. I feel pretty ashamed of myself. I was probably 15 years old the last time I played a game to the point that it got frustrating enough that I literally threw and broke a controller (that costs about 1/4 as much as the console itself).

This time it was NBA 2k14. I can't honestly believe that someone hasn't taken advantage of the fact that 2k Sports hasn't actually done anything to improve that game in 5 years.

But man, I feel like a tool. I'm one of the dues in the GameFly commercials.

But man, 2k sports really sucks. They just have a captive audience that has to play their games if they want video game basketball.




fuck.

It's a dark day in the fizzzzle household
