    Dragon Quest 11

    Loving this game, and really tempted to rebuy on Switch.
  2. Silly question: physical copy or download this game?

    Bill Maher: Comicbooks are for Children

    I spend my work day in public accounting. When the day is over, I watch sports, cook, play video games, listen to music, and watch fictional movies with superheroes, wizards, ghosts, and what not. After giving some thought to what Bill Maher said, I will still spend my work day in public accounting. When the day is over, I will still watch sports, cook, play video games, listen to music, and watch fictional movies with superheroes, wizards, ghosts, and what not. He could've said the opposite thing, and nothing would change. If getting older has done anything to me, it's I have a better appreciation for the simple pleasures I had as a ten year old.
  4. Okay, at some point I'll be creating a spreadsheet of televisions I'm looking at, but I wanted some new input before I get started on this project next week. A few things. Minimum Television Size I'm coming from a Panasonic 2010/2011 plasma that was 1080p and 50 inch. It's worked amazingly well, and will continue to be my driver for the time being. I'm assuming with my next upgrade I'm looking at 65 inch (because for some reason 60 inch doesn't exist)? This would be the same size as my 4:3 big screen from the olden days of Mitsubishi rear projection. HDMI 2.1 I'm assuming the sensible thing to do would be wait until televisions with this spec start rolling out. Operating System This has caused me some consternation as I was kind of hoping for a "dumb" television, but smart televisions are the norm now. Are there particular operating systems I want to avoid? And how unfounded are the fears of intrusive ads on my television? HDR It looks like LG is the only television manufacturer to have both HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Will I miss out if I get a television that supports only one or the other? That and I've never purchased an LG device ever. Miscellaneous Burn in is still a thing? Have I missed anything besides reading reviews? I'm using this forum and Rtings.com as my base of operations.
  5. This might be my first purchase of 2019.

    Films - Watched and thoughts 2019

    Solo: A Star Wars Story - It wasn't bad. It wasn't good either. And that's probably the most disappointing thing about it. Han Solo is my favorite movie character of all time, and they got the blandest actor to portray him. Annihilation - This is sort of what I'd expect from something that strikes me as cosmic horror/sci-fi light. That's not a bad thing. I liked it. I was kind of hoping for something mind-blowing, but it's not a bad effort. If I had one nit to pick, it's this: Bird Box - This wasn't bad either, and this too struck me as cosmic horror/sci-fi light. If you had to go for the angle this does a pretty good job.
  7. And now for the final season. I really enjoyed Star Trek: TNG, and some of the best episodes rank up there with the best television episodes (the opposite also applies). But there's no doubt in my mind I would love to see a Trek series in this current "golden age" of television which I feel got kick started by the Sopranos (not sure I would pay for CBS to see Discovery). Season 7 Descent Part II - I expected more, but this Lore episode was kind of dull. Liasons - Bizarro world episode about strange alien culture. Unfortunately, I feel like I've seen a television episode somewhere that lampoons this concept. Interface - His episode is far sadder in concept than execution. This episode is never addressed ever again unfortunately. Gambit, Part I - This had potential, but it seems wasted. Gambit, Part II - See previous episode summary. Such a waste. Phantasms - I liked this Data episode. His dreams (or nightmares) seems weird enough to be entertaining. Dark Page - Lwaxana Troi episode that would've been an all-time great... if it wasn't a Lwaxana Troi episode. Attached - Picard and Crusher should've bone a lot more. Force of Nature - This whole warp drive is causing damage to the space environment should've been explored a lot better. Inheritance - I'm finding it hard to believe that for every great Data episode, there are bland ones like this as well. Parallels - It's a great parallel universe story, and it manages to make Worf super entertaining as he either comes in first or last place in a Batleth tourney. The Pegasus - John Locke used to be in charge of Commander Riker. Great episode as it makes the Federation not all goody two shoes. Homeward - It's hard to picture Worf's brother as anybody but a mob boss. Sub Rosa - A ghost making out with Crusher sounds like the kind of erotic fan fiction that would be disappointing. I was right. Lower Decks - This is as close to common folk as one would get in the Star Trek universe. It kind of sucks that Sito kind of died. Thine Own Self - I feel like we've seen this episode before. Masks - A bizarre episode that had potential, but it got a little too campy. Eye of the Beholder - I think I just don't like Troi episodes. I think she does well in the movies and cameos in Voyager, but I just don't enjoy anything where she's the focal point. Genesis - This could've been an awesome action episode, but it was boring. Journey's End - It's hard to take this episode seriously when I can't help but think of the Martians from Futurama. Firstborn - It's kind of sad how Worf's kid turns out. Bloodlines - I don't believe in a future where contraception does not exist. That and the twist at the end wasn't that impressive. Emergence - AI really doesn't scare me, and this episode didn't sway my opinion one bit. Preemptive Strike - I really like Ensign Ro episodes, and this one is her best. I really want to see if she shows up in DS9. Something tells me no as I think Star Trek writers aren't exactly the best at continuity details. All Good Things - Finally Q is super interesting. But the depressing part of this episode is.. what if in the new series Picard has space dementia? And that's it. I will probably start DS9 at some point, but I am focused on spending my free time with Dragon Quest XI right now.

    Podcasts thread. A thread about podcasts.

    I've fallen in and out of podcasts, and I'm recently back in. Been listening to Business Wars, and I won't be the first or last person to make this bad observation: I think the host sounds like Casey Kasem.
  9. Well, I've decided to make a 2019 goal: to have a 4K television by early summer/early October (my birthday). I'll start researching now.

    I completely thought of a much different genre...

    Whiskey And Other Fine Spirits

    This past Christmas, I finally can remove something off my bucket list: I had moonshine for the first time. The company kind and the distilled in the mountains in the backyard kind.
  12. I'm surprised there's no mention of Ocarina of Time being the scariest Zelda game with the screaming Redeads.

    Microsoft Surface Tablet

    And my Surface Pro 3 is officially dead. I don't care that the laptop was lagging like crazy in its final years, or that battery life off the charger was abysmal. But if I can't even turn it on with it being plugged in, I will not consider anymore products from this line. Any laptop should work on a charger as a bare minimum.

    The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - It's alright, but it feels like I might enjoy it more were I British and enjoyed fascination with British view's of bureaucracy and absurdity.
