  1. Past hour
  2. I really these games. Still own the originals actually. Definitely will check this out.
  3. Same. Again, so lovely of her to find the strength to even give is that parting gift. The kettle pot was fucking amazing.
  4. That's a pretty big footprint for the slinky coaster-seems to be more spread out than it needs to be. I suppose the theming etc around the ride will be more extensive than a similar design elsewhere, and if there's space to breathe, why not use it? I guess the building at the bottom is the load/unload area?
  5. If it's an "Obi-wan on Tattooine" movie, then you have to imagine that there's going to be at least a young Luke cameo.
  6. Recore Gameplay Trailer - PC, XB1

    Nice! I still have Recore in the queue, but reasonably close to the top now, so I'll get to it sometime this year. Wasn't there a whole thing about the game not being finished?
  7. I think I'm going to pass for now-600 bucks CDN for one, and I don't have a 4k TV yet. If my current Xbox does then it seems like a no brainer, but if nothing else, I want to see how the performance improvements actually manifest at 1080p. With Crackdown delayed though, I'm not really sure what the marquee game to show off the power of this thing is going to be besides Forza.
  8. Films - Watched and thoughts 2017

    Icarus - This is a phenomenal documentary on Netflix that is worth every minute of your time. It starts with the director Byran Fogel looking to run a compressed version of the Tour De France without the use of any type of banned PED and then he intentionally goes on a lengthy regimen of hormones to try and improve his performance for the next year. This opens up his working with a Russian scientist who heads up one of the worlds most respected labs in testing athletes for PED use for the Olympics and other tournaments. It's a two hour romp through how easy it is to defeat the system and barrels into a decades long conspiracy by the Russian government to cheat the Olympic games. It's utterly captivating for the length of the film and highlights the length to which state sponsored actors in Russia went to circumvent the system and allow their athletes to gain the competitive edge they needed to win the amount of gold that they did in Sochi and beyond. It seems crazy to think but some of the main actors in this little play end up dead and others lives are in the balance as they try to blow the whistle on the conspiracy. If you have any interest in the world of doping in sports and the mechanisms surrounding how these agencies attempt to stop it - this is must see viewing. HIGHLY recommended! 5 out of 5 stars.
  9. He's my favorite character so...no. Let him keep moving the chess pieces. I'm still giggle at the episode though and not for good reasons. Yes, it was epic and the Night KIng went pure olympic gold medalist on that dragon but it was hard to ignore the pure convenience of the writing. Gendry not only had the bossiest of boss ass cardio but he managed to compress a trip that likely took a day/days into 20 minutes. The Flash would have been proud. Not to mention the men of the Night's Watch employed what has to be the amazing Raven in all of Westeros to reach Dragon Stone and let Dany know what's happening. My guess is that the Raven must have contact Heimdal over in Marvel's Thor universe to use the Asgardian Rainbow Bridge to reach Dragon Stone. It's the only explanation my mind can wrap around to excuse the ridiculous convenience on display in that episode. I'm usually pretty lenient with traveling time lines in the show. Even though characters move around in minutes, it can be generally excused as the audience not seeing the days/weeks that go into their movements. Last night? There's little excuse for that and while I love me some fighting and dragons - that's one seriously bullshit pill to swallow.
  10. Coincidentally I think we talked about this during E3 in one of the chats.:) http://www.gamesindustry.biz/amp/2017-08-21-why-square-enix-collective-is-resurrecting-fear-effect
  11. Xbox One X enhanced visuals look to mimic the PS4 Pro upgrades with some improvements. Here's a video: Release: The X version includes native 4K support. The PS4 Pro had 4K checkerboard. So some nice improvements for those that may want to dig into this version. I've already double dipped with the PS4 and PC version so I have little interest (I've barely touched the PS4 Pro version at this point) but maybe if I come upon it super cheap....
  12. Today
  13. A Song of Ice and Fire - Game of Thrones - HBO Series

    I tire of his smirk and long for his comeuppance.... which is what worries me, because this damn show loves to let a complete bastard of a character get a way with something at the cost of killing off someone more innocent, and we're overdue that kind of a mega "fuck you" to the audience with one episode left.
  14. Films - Watched and thoughts 2017

    The Founder - The story of Ray Kroc, the man who took McDonald's from a revolutionary burger stand to an American institution. Michael Keaton is truly fantastic in serious dramatic roles. It's a tale of persistence, overcoming the inertia of those who can't or won't share your vision, greed, betrayal (on several levels), and winning. I give it 4 out of 5 Royales with cheese. Alien Covenant - From hearing some reviews, I went in with low expectations, but I thought this was a really great Alien movie. All the action sequences were well done, and Walter/David were both amazing characters. Like many other A.I. movies before it, it explores the theme of the creator/created dichotomy, and takes it to a truly horrific conclusion, especially when viewed in the larger context of the earlier Alien movies, which occur later in the timeline and evolution of the Alien species. It almost redeemed Prometheus. Almost. I give it 4 out of 5 Ragtime Gals. Carlos. P.S. Song now stuck in your head? You're welcome!
  15. It had a few issues, but the good always outweighs the bad in this show. The group talking amount themselves at the start had many great moments. Then the end was edge of my seat stuff. I've seen people say the Arya thing was out of character, but I think she was just trying to scare Sansa. plus they have set up the many faces again, so little finger won't be alive much longer. However will it be Arya like we all think, or Sansa somehow. yes the longest episode of the show next week.
  16. A Song of Ice and Fire - Game of Thrones - HBO Series

    Good stuff. I think next week's is supposed to run for 81 mins or thereabouts.
  17. Yup, that's the only major takeaway from that episode That was one of the funniest episodes of the series, you know, for the first half at least. My favourite line had to be: That’s whinging, (Beric has been) killed six times you don’t hear him complaining about it.” Just an epic episode. I mean zombie dragon, damn! I was so pumped after that episode it took forever to fall asleep last night.
  18. Almost finished Wilson's Heart now - really good, immersive game with some genuinely creepy moments. Also, as pointed out in some of the reviews it really does feel like a Twilight Zone episode. As as far as the 1.17 update, I added a few Steam games to the OH page and they seem to work just fine - including Alien Isolation. Not bad at all...
  19. Still available at Target: https://www.target.com/p/xbox-one-x-1tb-project-scorpio-edition/-/A-52614582#lnk=sametab
  20. Great episode tonight. Was surprised at the tea kettle direction.
  21. All that rowing paid off for Gendry. Man's got mad in shape with all that cardio.
  22. By the way, someone took a shot of the jumping man scene during the convenience store visit. Shhhhiiiiiit.
  23. Touching tribute to Catherine Coulson and the log lady character tonight. I teared up a bit. 25 years later, things finally worked out for Ed and Norma, too! So, Cooper is back next episode then after the socket shock? Seems like the probable direction. Also, it's a damned shame Bowie passed.:( It would have been glorious to see him reprise the Jeffries character here. Still, a large kettle pot with billowing smoke works.:)
