  1. I still don't have a Switch and will pass on this. I guess I'm holding out for the Switch Max.
  2. Obviously I haven't played every game that was released in 2018, but of the ones I have played, Rising Sun is easily my favorite. After Rising Sun, Vindication and Lords of Hellas would probable be the two runners up.
  3. It was good. On par with the first season, IMO. It kind of retread a lot of stuff, but it paid off in the end. Definitely a darker ending than season 1.
  4. Saw it last night and loved it. I agree that it's probably better than half of the MCU films. This one probably tops Man of Steel as my favorite DCEU film.
  5. Just picked up the One X and the load times are definitely faster.
  6. Blood Rage is super fun. Add the Mystics of Midgard expansion right away. Those units are really fun. I still haven't played the Gods of Asgard expansion so I can't comment on that. If you like Blood Rage and Eric Lang's games in general, make sure you check out Rising Sun. Personally, I like it a little more than Blood Rage, but even if you like Blood Rage more, you'll probably still like it.
  7. After playing and loving the original Command & Conquer, back in 1995, I couldn't wait for it's sequel. Finally, four years later, on its launch day in 1999, I came home with Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun. I ended up being completely disappointed. For as much as I loved the first one and looked forward to this one, I think this is my biggest gaming disappointment.
  8. I agree about Jafar. I'm hoping that maybe he's using some kind of magical disguise to make him appear nicer and hide his evil appearance. Probably too much to hope for, but I'm going with it.
  9. It's in the Prime timeline of the JJ verse. There are essentially 3 timelines in Star Tre now: Cannon timeline - TOS, Animated, TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT and all Star Trek movies prior to 2009. Prime Timeline - Referencedin the 2009 Star Trek movie. The "Prime" timeline is different than the cannon timeline because due to rights issues, Paramount had to keep it 25% different. Kelvin Timeline.
  10. The first one, the one that summons the smaller boars was hard. It took me about 3 tries to beat it, but the farting one, OMG. It's poison fart clouds never seem to disappear and I'm always poisoned. It's so frustrating.
  11. I have an original Xbox One and am wondering if the Xbox One X has faster load times. I only have an HDTV so I've been holding off on the X until I got a 4K TV, but if it improves load times, I might have to reconsider. When playing games like Assassin's Creed: Odyssey or Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the load times during fast travel is really long. Would that be faster?
  12. You're surprised he would take different stances with one country that has nuclear weapons vs another country that is trying to get them?
  13. I love it. I'm a huge fan of games designed by Eric Lang and Rising Sun is my favorite. Yes, it edges out Blood Rage, in my opinion.
  14. I received Twilight Imperium: 4th Edition and Architects of the West Kingdom. I also received Broken Token box inserts for Rising Sun and the Scythe Legendary Box.
  15. So my Steam account was hacked and I can't sign in. In order to get support for anything on their website, you need to sign in. I try to follow the steps to reset my account and they email me a security code to enter. After I enter it, it tells me that the same type of request already exists and a duplicate request cannot be created. It's been like that for a couple of days now. I tried calling Valve and the only option they have is to leave a message with a generic voicemail box. If anyone has any other suggestions, I'd love to hear it.
  16. What would you recommend, a high end, 1080P TV or a low end, 4K set? I have a high end Samsung 1080P TV from 2015 and am thinking about upgrading to 4K. I can't afford a high end system right now, but was looking at some of the Visio systems in the < $500 range. Obviously, the 4K is higher resolution than what I have now, but would everything else be just as good?
  17. I believe they'll have to incorporate the characters into some other type of show. Netflix still owns the existing episodes and will keep showing them even after the Disney service starts. Whether they'd use the new Disney service or put them on Hulu, I doubt they'd continue the shows knowing that people would have to sign up with a competing service to view the original episodes.
  18. I'm a Canon DSLR shooter and have been a fan of their cameras. If you want to shoot 4K, their stuff might not be the best as it has a high crop factor. Even their new mirrorless EOS R has about a 1.7 crop factor, meaning you would need to use some decent wide angle lenses if you want the same view in full frame. You might still want to look at it though as it has a much broader selection of native lenses from both Canon as well as 3rd party lens manufacturers like Sigma and Tamron. Adapters exist for the Sony, but they're simply not as good. No way around that. The Canon EOS R also has a fully articulating touch screen. If you're going to be shooting vlogs at all, it's the only one that will allow you to see the screen while you film. Also, the size of the Canon is better, IMO. It has a better grip and is much more comfortable to hold. The Sony is too small and cramped, IMO.
  19. Get any versions of the Red Dragon Inn games. Each one will support up to 4 players, so for 8, you'd need two versions.
  20. I love that game too. I just can't wait until some of the expansions are available again.
  21. Here's a good article explaining what happened to the Mariners. https://sodomojo.com/2018/09/11/5-reasons-mariners-will-watching-playoffs/
  22. I used to be able to, but not so much anymore. Anymore, if I have more than one game to track, I won't be able to decide which game I want to play so I end up not playing anything.
