  1. Season 4 is basically an entire season build up for things to happen in S5. I thought S4 was by far the worst of the bunch and spent far too much time in Mercia without anything really happening. Also, Edward is just the worst.
  2. Finished Snowpiercer S3 last night and there was a pretty significant drop in quality. The pacing was WAY off with just a shit-ton of stuff happening in the last two episodes. I was laughing with how much crap they just shoved into the end. And I know the premise is kind of crazy to start, but the first season made it work and had sub-plots that made sense. There were just too many jump-the-shark moments that it was hard to ignore. Then there's the last scene where something just happened, but I had no idea why I should care about it. Maybe I was too excited for it, but this season was super disappointing.
  3. Fucking kid loves the roomba. Talks about it constantly. Goes upstairs and starts it w/out telling anyone. Super cute. Fun times. Until the cat starts shitting everywhere without anyone noticing too.
  4. Finished Ozark S4 this weekend and the ending was completely unsatisfactory. Hot garbage might be a bit harsh, but they made some terrible decisions.
  5. This, and the fact that I tend to play longer games without much time to play, are the reasons why I won't get a subscription service until my kids require it. It's also why I still buy and keep a fairly large movie collection. Both have come through for me on multiple occasions.
  6. As you should, tackling the game without summons is definitely a challenge run. I’ve also heard they patched Rykard so you can’t just cheese him to death, so it seems you’re doing awesome! I just finished Radahn and started Rannis quest underground. Then I’ll get Dung Eater and his puppet , finish Ranni, then lock myself into the Frenzied ending. Shouldn’t be too much longer before I finish this run and then start my platinum run to finish out the game. Should take me past 200 hours total.
  7. Right?!?! Monday too. I'm not even that big of a hockey fan, but 11 goals scored in two games is wild
  8. If you haven't played DS2, ER takes quite a few things from that game moreso than DS3 IMO
  9. Awesome tips, thank you! BTW the waygate after Fia's champions takes you underground in Mohg's area
  10. That's my point. You can only keep escalating for so long before it feels contrived. Escalating to tell a story is fine, you just can't do it forever, otherwise you get something like Weeds or House of Cards nonsense.
  11. Sorry for the double, but is anybody watching Shining Girls on AppleTv+? I have no real idea what's going on, yet it's really gripping. Between this and Severance I love that Apple is taking some risks on its content and putting some unique things out there. After getting burned on so many good weird things on Netflix, only to be canceled after a season or 2, I'm happy to see another company willing to make some content that isn't based off some algorithm to get new subscribers. Anyway, there's 3 episodes released so far and I'm hooked.
  12. IMO Ozark has fallen victim to something a lot of shows before it have, and that's the idea that you must constantly be escalating in order to keep the show interesting - where this strategy makes the show feel like it's missing something and drags instead of actually keeping the viewer interested. By the time you get to this point the realism of a broken family trying to keep it together is lost as they juggle dumb shit like national political leaders, cartel interpersonal relationships, and FBI double crosses. It's not the stuff that made this show popular and I'd say most dramatic shows that go on for more than 3 seasons have this issue.
  13. Got through the entirety of Liurnia over the weekend and started Ranni's quest to get a 2nd Darkmoon Greatsword. I think I'm going to try to puppet Dung Eater and hope I can absolve my sins w/ Ranni after doing so. All the guides say its possible, so will go that route. Next portion should be finishing out Radahn, some of the underground stuff to get me ready for Ranni, find a seedbed curse for DE, free him, then give him Seluvis' potion to get his puppet summon. Then I should be able to finish out Ranni's quest, get my sword, then work toward the Frenzied Flame ending.
  14. The link you provided originally was https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2066723/ It's a study from 1991. Regardless, how does any of this data show that it isn't impacting older folks. Just because it's worse for 18-45 year olds doesn't mean it's not impacting other age groups.
  15. Started NG+ last night and decided that I wanted to use this run to do that NPC walkthrough @RumHam posted a few weeks back. So far I've gotten through Godrick, just need to finish up Rogier's quest and unlock the Rune and I'll be done w/ Limgrave. I had a lot of fun with Margit since I just let my mimic solo him. Couldn't kill him on its own, but it was fun to watch. I'm kinda torn on what weapons I want to use though, I have two Moonveils which do quite a bit of damage on their own and have bleed - but I also have two cold Uchi's that do less damage, but can proc both cold AND bleed. I'm leaning toward the Uchi's at this point just for that double proc ability. I'm also realizing after reading the NPC quests that there is just SO MUCH to this game. I'd like to skip some of this, but everything is so intertwined it's hard to skip parts and not miss out on NPC side quests that I missed before. At least I can skip a lot of the side dungeons.
  16. The commentary has me dying
  17. Watched a few things over the last week or so: Finished up Ozark S4, can't wait for the 2nd half this weekend. Watched Spiderman: No Way Home and I really enjoyed it. Seeing all the characters from all the Spiderman movies was great as I liked all of the Spiderman franchises - and some of the back and forth between all the Peter Parkers was amazing . I wasn't a fan of the ending, but it feels fairly minor compared to the rest. Even my 3 year old likes it, so I'm counting down the days before this requires a multi-viewing and I start memorizing it. The mid-credit scene was stupid. Saw The Batman and really liked this one. Huge fan of the focus being on Batman and his detective skills, while showing just briefly how broken Bruce is. I thought that worked really well. I loved that they didn't do any kind of origin story and that the first hour (90 minutes?) we only see Batman. It felt tighter because of it. Didn't mind the length, but this one is up there with my favorite Batman movies. Currently watching WeCrashed on Apple. Enjoying it a lot, but seems so similar to Inventing Anna in the story that it's telling and doesn't help that one of the actors is in both, basically playing the same character. Everyone pretty much sucks and we're almost to the point of failure. I think we only have a couple episodes left. If you liked Inventing Anna, you'd probably like this one. Jared Leto is great in it.
  18. It's a great game. Much faster paced than any of the others with some really unique mechanics compared to the other games they've made. Feels much tighter since you really only have one weapon, there aren't a ton of upgrade paths, and no real leveling. It's basically just you, your sword, and your skill. It heavily relies on parries and breaking posture vs health, but they are much easier than other games. I put it in a class on its own when compared to other From games, just because it is both so good, and yet has some very key differences.
  19. No Bloodborne or Sekiro?
  20. New patch came out today. Fixes Melania, the hidden cerulian tear (infinite FP), and the boss glitches that would cause bosses to insta-die when proc'd with bleed right before getting to the next phase. On a side note, I found Dragonlord Placidusax in Farum Azula and think it was probably my favorite boss of the game. Very tough with a lot of stuff that hits hard, but nothing that one or two shots you unless it's your fault. Just a classic, tough, but fair souls boss. I nearly beat it on my first try, but then ended up spending the better part of an hour taking it down. Gonna finish off a few more side things, but really close on closing out NG and starting NG+. Should just need to run through NG+ and NG++ to get my platinum... and then play some palate cleansers I have in my backlog.
  21. Mine is Jude Law and I always think about that scene in Pineapple Express
  22. I think w/out a guy like Hill it's gonna be hard for Kelce to repeat as the best TE in the game. We'll see, but IMO I think Reid is going to have to get back to the genius scheming of years past with worse teams and Mahomes is going to have to really implement those and stop getting cute. And even with that, it isn't going to guarantee wins against their stacked division.
  23. I'm not sure it's even that hot of a take. Their offense is Mahomes and their defense is arguably the worst in the division.
  24. I hope this blows up in his face, so, so badly. Wipe that smug smile off is hair plugged head. I was never going to get on it, but I hope this move pushes those that made the company off. Fuck Musk and his new propaganda channel.
