ive noticed all the long-time metal gear fan reviewers are pissed and disappointed in the depth and breadth and length of the plotline and story elements... while those who are new to the series or casual players of past games barely even mention this

the last MG game i played was the one on the PS3, which was widely regarded as having way way way way too much story and plot, to the point of extreme frustration and anger (45 min unskippable cutscenes etc)...

so really im not surprised how sparse this one is in comparison

but really, i havent noticed it as being a problem in this game - for example, it has quite a bit more plot and storyline than something like the Far Cry games, which are actually very similar to this game in many ways with the base assaults and marking targets and stealth stuff, etc.

and i kinda wish these hardcore fans would have the self-awareness to realize this... but it seems much more like a bunch of pokemon fans complaining about the latest iterations lack of jiggamons and pubismons when they were so pivotal to the 'pokemons go the moon' series, blah blah blah blah blah

I don't see the problem either. The tapes just replace the bullshit in older games where you had 30 minutes of 2 talking heads while you were forced to twiddle your thumbs.

I'm making a big batch of chili this weekend and starting a new web dev course on Sunday, its a skills update thing and I'm really excited about it. Lots of focus on creating mobile friendly content which I need these days. GF is really into Brooklyn Nine Nine on Netflix lately so we'll probably watch that. Pretty boring stuff, sometimes the best life is the predictable one. Hurt myself climbing last week so it's going to set a Rainier training thing I wanted to do back awhile.

Upgraded FireTV looks awesome. MicroSD slot, USB port, Ethernet, 802.11ac, HDMI/Optical and a quad core CPU. They switched the remote from bluetooth over to Wifi-direct as well.

Awesome really looking forward to this. I just hope the armor system makes a bit more sense, fashion souls is fun and all but it would be nice if damage reduction made more sense with heavy armor. It feels like too much DR hinges on shields and armor is almost cosmetic outside of elemental defenses.

Almost done with my covenant PvP stuff in DS2 then I'm ready for Fallout 4 to tide me over until this!

Got it for like $40 from GMG a few months ago, Fallout games always deliver and I don't mind preordering in this case.

Did you read the study? You know the one posted above from the .gov site? If you quit trolling for just 2 seconds and actually read something someone else posted you might not have the worst reputation on Blues you know...

http://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/patient/cannabis-pdq/#link/_13

I don't see any study linked there, there are some clinical trials under way though. That site is just a topical on some potential treatments with a very limited scope that in no way indicate a cure. We have discovered many tumor inhibitors for lab animals over the years but they don't always translate to humans. The very limited clinical trials referenced there only apply to liver tumors in rats and could also be attributed to other factors. That's why they are doing trials and not proclaiming "cure your cancer" which is irresponsible and ignorant at this stage of research.

There's a lot more data that needs to be gathered before people start throwing around the term "cure" and start believing every snake oil salesman online. Cancer is too wide reaching for any effective conspiracy, almost every family has been affected by it in some way and it would be impossible to cover up. Hope is a wonderful thing but it can be dangerous too, it shouldn't be thrown around so lightly just to suit one guys penchant for conspiracy theories and seeing boogeymen in every corner.

I don't get the hoopla around this 'offline viewing'. I mean how many mobile devices out there aren't connected to the internet? Is there that big a percentage of homes without a home network?

A lot of people want to sync to their mobile devices. Personally I can't stand watching video on such a small screen but trust me, its a minority opinion these days. Its one of the biggest reasons people get the Plex Pass, I can see Netflix users wanting it too.

They should have stopped at the second one, they have effectively killed this IP multiple times over now.

You can only milk a stupid game only so far....

Is that sort of like you must have killed the internet multiple times over with doozies like this?

The games make money and he obviously has fans, I don't see a problem here. Don't buy them.

What Windows Phone community? Microsoft abandoning its hardware partner didn't exactly send a positive signal to the ecosystem as a whole so its no surprise. There just isn't room for Windows Phone and it doesn't really offer anything that other phone platforms don't already do better.

I have to say that the Microsoft Store is some of the sorriest shit I've ever come across. I spent some time looking at releasing an app I'm working on and concluded it wasn't worth the effort. The amount of fraudulent apps is appalling, the search is a joke and the availability of quality core apps is very hit and miss.

Haha well its week one so don't beat yourself up over it. Picking the Browns over the Jets though? JETS!

Still not sure why I picked the Buccs over the Titans, I think it was one of those when everything else is in doubt pick the home team things.

Verno tying for second by picking all the favored picks.
Looks like 3 others did the same.

I don't trust the favored thing, its a combination of historicals and my gut. I thought most of the week one picks were no brainers but of course we always get a few surprises like the Rams and the Bills.

I do often check what a few analysts think but that's mainly for my fantasy and survivor league since I have a bit of money in those.

Once an SSD goes tits up, and many of them do it without warning, good luck accessing it at all.

You have any basis for saying that?

You're just trading some of the usual points of failure from mechanical hard drives with others that make recovery difficult - controller and its associated TRIM implementation which can be version specific. Some drives have native encryption. Potential NAND issues. Data recovery firms charge a lot more for SSD recovery and the actual recovery rates are significantly lower.

How 'bout them Cowboys!

Saved one of my picks in my last man standing league.

Hah nice, it was my survivor league pick too. Now for the real challenge, deciding when to pick the Jaguars.

Also how about those Rams? What a game.

Kinect didn't take off because it created an annoying game experience with extra latency and a lack of precision. Microsoft itself couldn't craft a decent game tailored to it, the closest they got was flailing kids games.

Immigration has done great things for America and I feel for the refugees but we're just getting back on our feet financially, I'm not even sure we can afford to take them all in. We have our own poor and hungry right here at home. Plus isn't everyone always bitching about America being too involved in world affairs? Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Not all of these guys are webcam tools though, many now produce out of a studio space and its a job. $22,000.00 sounds like a lot but the earnings potential from exposure to 2 million guaranteed viewers is much more significant. Indies shouldn't expect charity, they're in it to make a living and most secretly want to hit it big too.

I wish I could hit on the secret formula to get 2,000,000 people just watching my dumb gameplay videos, I could fund my retirement in a few years of what these guys earn off this shit.
