I avoid hulu like the plague, due to ads...

Hulu now has an ad free version for several dollars more.


Yeah, but...I already pay for netflix, and prime, so...I'd rather not have another bill...

It's good they do it, but...


Yeah, Hulu lost me years ago. I gladly started paying when they asked, then they started putting ads in paying subscribers content. WHAT? FUCK YOU, THIS IS THE SAME REASON I AVOID CABLE! Now they can do whatever they like, but it doesn't matter to me because I will never give them another dime.

So what your saying is to combat darkness we need more raves?

As for Rogue One, there are a few droids, but really surprised overall the lack of aliens and droids. Yeah a few gonk droids, but beyond human actors in gonk suits, and the cgi ones it really seems to be just a bunch of humans.

And really has noone played the new Battlefront? 4 guys running out against 3 AT-AT's?!?

Look for the droid that keeps following the main character around in the trailer. They never show him in a full shot, but he's there all the time. That's Alan Tudyk's character.

So what this has caused is that you join games with people playing the weird characters, and they have no clue HOW to play them. Every game I played, someone was the Lost Vikings, and two of them were always doing nothing. Also had an abathur in one of the fights, never saw his squid hat on any teammates. Thankfully the "play anyone" option ends well before the bonus XP does.

I got to play Abathur for the first time this weekend, but I won 2 out of 3 games. The third was just as you described. I was trying to help out, but NOBODY else on my team knew how to play the character they had picked. When Abathur has the most kills and assists on the team, something is wrong...

I still haven't gotten the Vikings to level 5, but I HATE them. Can't stand playing them.

Fine since you are all blind (said the guy with glasses).

Go watch it again and count the aliens.

Yes, but go watch the Force Awakens trailer again and tell me how many things in that trailer didn't make the cut or were different in the final film. It's the first trailer.

Also, at 1:05 alien in the scene, far left.

I love hypocrisy. Video games are dumb, but people running back and forth on a football field is exciting to watch.

DOn't get me wrong, watch what you like. Personally, I find either option incredibly boring and I'd rather play than watch someone else play.

Need more peoples from Blues to friend up on BNet so we can play! I play at least a game a day. Trying to get Leoric to 10 for my DIII portrait. (MY only 10s are all Diablo demons, even though Azmo does not count toward the portrait.) I hated Leoric at first, but now I am pretty competent with him.

Never mind Star Wars lego, nin, you should be opening your wallet for these!:

Set #1

Set #2

I had to pose for hours for the second one, it was torture!

That second ones awesome, but just a tad too big for me, space wise.

So far I have a Falcon, the Ghost/Phantom, an AT-AT, Rey's speeder, and a speeder bike set.

I've been hanging out at https://www.reddit.com/r/lego/ the last few weeks, and the community there is really amazing. Not only do folks share their custom designs, but almost everyone that does includes a parts list and assembly instructions. All sorts of stuff I'd never guess, with instructions! Really cool community!

I know a lot of folks thought Rey was "Mary Sue" (had never even heard of this term before this movie), but I didn't even notice it, or particularly care if she really is a bad ass. You know, force and all.

I'd not heard of that phrase until the movie, either. I thought she was fantastic, and the way she and Finn got along was so much fun to watch.


Mary Sue is mostly used in books, where authors (Bad authors) use a barely disguised version of themselves as the main character who has no faults and is great at everything, including things that there would be no way someone could actually perform without years of education. OH shit, the reactor is melting down? I will competently shut it down and save the day despite not knowing thing one about nuclear reactors! Martial arts master? Ha, I will block his every blow and fell him with one punch, despite never having any training! Shoot the wings off a fly at 1000 yards with a flintlock pistol? Pssh, give me something hard! But hold on, I'm piloting this Navy fighter jet with no training first.

SPOILERS BELOW!

The main complaints about TFA are kind of silly. Yes, she naturally picks things up and is good at them BUT - she has defended herself with a staff for years. Not hard to make the transition to a saber from that. Some people can pick up a gun and they are naturally good shots. She has been piloting stuff before. It's not like she didn't have the background to be predisposed to being good at this stuff.

Not to mention Anakin and Luke were both god at the things she is good at. Hmmm....

And Leia hugging Rey instead of Chewie...could it be because uncle Han died and Leia senses or knows Rey is her niece?

Rogue One trailer! Oh Em Gee! Dance

Yeah, I'm pretty stoked. I'm still a little skeptical of Disney pulling this off every year, so I went in with low expectations. But that trailer far exceeded it.

Was also wondering if they were really going to make December, as before now, we'd not seen any footage.


I have not been this excited for Star Wars since I was a kid. I just got Force Awakens on bluray and it was still awesome the second time around, and I actually want to watch it again. Now Rogue One? Awesome!

I'll wait. I'm certain the second and third generation will be lighter and more affordable though.

Well, Vive won't get a 3rd generation. Valve can only count to 2.2.

I don't recall there being a restriction on characters that you can pick, so I believe a Tracer and Widowmaker could play together. Seems wrong now.

Huh? You were right with the first sentence. There is no character limit. Your team could play all Widowmakers and Tracers if you'd like.

Right, and that makes me wonder what the point is of developing all this lore. Don't get me wrong, I like it, but then we turn around and jump in a match to fight side by side. At least in Heroes, enemies of one another make comments about it, and they're fighting in the Nexus, so it isn't as weird. There's a huge disconnect between the game and the lore, IMO, which is very unlike Blizzard.

"Here's a lot of great videos that have nothing to do with the game!"

Because they plan to do other games in this fictional universe.

Did some personal bible study tonight and it really helped me appreciate Jesus words, "You must love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:39) The first 25 or so minutes of this video (produced by JW's) helped me greatly appreciate the gravity of what Jesus' words meant. This has led me to conclude that a minimum wage, no a living wage, of $15 is the neighborly and compassionate thing to do. I now know a lot of people, including fellow worshipers, who would greatly benefit from such an income increase regardless of marketable skills. Thank you all for your valuable points of view.

That's the problem, though. This is feel good legislation with no thought for the long term effects. Sure, now people get to feel like something has been done. What about when $15 buys you a gallon of milk, maybe? And now people with no skills make what recent college graduates make in some job markets. WHy bother getting an education and putting yourself in debt when you won't be out earning Joe the fry guy? Pretty soon our economy tanks for good. But you got to feel good for a while, so it was worth it, right?

Never mind that most waiters can out earn teachers as it is. But hey, punishing teachers and standardized test will fix that, not monetary gains! Teachers don't want to be paid for...oh, wait. All the good teachers are leaving the profession because they can take their degrees ANYWHERE else and make more money. But no child left behind certainly made us feel good for a while, right?

The thing is, I still feel you're looking at it wrong. You are looking at the people behind you and annoyed that, despite all your hard work, they're not as far behind as you feel they should be.

the usual christian stance... its why they love that idea of HELL and SATAN punishing the EVIL sinners with lakes of FIRE and TORMENT... while all the special, important people get to float on up to the magical wonderland of heavenly bliss and fluffy clouds

its incredibly childish, and immature - but also extremely common

Wow. I have no words for how dumb what you just said is. You can't argue logically, so you resort to attacking a religion?

And in 2022 they'll be bitching that $15 is a not a living wage. Welcome to reality! But don't worry, robots will take those jobs long before they make it to $15 an hour.

Happy Easter everyone!

Does anyone want an Overwatch early open beta key? I have one extra. First person to say yes gets it. (I tried this on Steam, but I don't think too many people read the activity log...)

I'll take one. I was watching vids with my son yesterday, and he was really digging it. Favs: Tracer and Genji.

Sent! Enjoy!

Please post some impressions.....

I will. It doesn't start until May. I plan to cancel my pre-order if I don't like it. I mean, I love everything they have done so far, but they've never done a shooter before, so who knows? (Of course, before Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm they'd never done either of those genres either...)
