  1. Great lineup of games, lots of PSVR too. And that MK trailer, loved it. That game and franchise has a style of its own.
  2. Really great site for Spotify users: https://discoverquickly.com/ https://gizmodo.com/this-clever-hack-will-change-the-way-you-find-music-on-1833433404
  3. Airpods have been boughted. Didn't get the wireless charging case though.
  4. Wish theyโ€™d use box art for Contra too. But they probably used title screens to match the arcade ones. Still buying that so fast though.
  5. ... console about to be announced:
  6. If the issue was lactose by any chance, maybe look into Fairlife milk https://fairlife.com/ It's actual milk, just highly filtered. The price on it isn't much different from regular milk from what I've seen. I've used it a lot and it tastes great. I like Almond and Cashew milk quite a bit as well like others said.
  7. Day 1 in the bag. I don't plan to post like this every day, but good probably good to kick things off. Small pre-workout protein shake 700g chicken 300g egg whites 330g sweet potato 350g cantaloupe 1 banana 1 apple all spread out in various meals of course. 1,851 kcals Protein: 282g (61%) Carbs: 140g (30%) Fat: 19 (9%) Tomorrow will be heavier on fats than carbs. Also will be first day I've done walking exercise in months.
  8. If one new feature comes out of next-gen consoles, I hope someone figures out how to get controller input closer in precision to keyboard and mouse. I feel like now is the time, and hopefully either Microsoft or Sony will figure this out. I don't know what form or fashion it would need to be, maybe some sort of highly accurate touch pad that can replace the right stick or using gyros in some way. I know Valve has tried this, but I wonder what can be built on from that. Who knows, maybe something you could wear on your head that tracked head and eye movement to help you aim, I'm open to ideas ๐Ÿ˜„ I just hope there is an advancement in controller input this new gen.
  9. Auto Bleem looks good! I hadn't heard about it until you mentioned it. For the on hardware stuff, I was using the FTP and Telnet that Bleemsync installs on the system and these guides: Replacing a game: https://gbatemp.net/threads/howto-replace-pal-tekken-3-with-ntsc-on-psclassic.531528/ Replacing the emulator: https://gbatemp.net/threads/howto-update-stock-emulator-in-psclassic.531600/
  10. One thing I really wanted to do with the Playstation Classic was mod what was actually on the system rather than use Bleemsync over USB. I wanted to remake my own lineup on the internal memory and then use Bleemsync and a USB as additional storage. So far, I've updated the actual emulator on the Classic itself, so now I can access the menu with all the different options without anything additional installed. I've also replaced the slowed down PAL version of Jumping Flash! with the NTSC version.
  11. IIRC, MyFitnessPal was always more convoluted on how you enter the weights of food, and with MyNetDiary I can just weigh everything in grams.
  12. Yeah there are days where I'd weigh myself and then not put it in the log or think I was going to remember to do it later, and then forgot what the weigh in was. Everyone uses that one, but I've always taken to MyNetDiary. It's always been easier to log foods for me. All of that sounds great. You and me both! Sometimes keeping a regular sleep schedule feels close to impossible for me and I self-sabotage this so much. I think I am generally tuned to be nocturnal and don't do well in the mornings. I've experimented with taking 1mg of melatonin about 2 hours before my target bedtime and it has helped a good deal. Sleep will be a big help if improvements can be made here. Same, but I do drink a good deal of coffee during the day.
  13. Calories: Using me as an example here, at my current weight, it looks like my maintenance calories to remain the same weight is 2224kcal. We want to -500kcal from our maintenance to come up with our ideal intake for this plan. For me, that means my caloric intake is 1723kcal per day. Exercise: There will be some exercise each day, but it can be limited to brisk walking. You can do more if you want to. I am going to be lifting weights 3 days a week on M-W-F and walking on my off days. So my schedule looks like this: Monday: Lifting Tuesday: 30 min brisk walk Wednesday: Lifting Thursday: 30 min brisk walk Friday: Lifting Saturday: 60 min brisk walk Sunday: 60 min brisk walk That's it. You can replace the lifting with something else, and if you want to stick to walking, I think about a minimum of a 20 min brisk walk would equal the calories I'd be burning on the weight lifting. Modification: You don't have to do this at all, but since I'm lifting, I'm going to adjust my caloric intake so a little more is on workout days and less on off days. The difference will be +/- 7.5%. So my adjusted calories are: Workout days: 1852kcal Off days: 1593kcal Macros: If you want to do it, it's highly recommended to adjust your macros so 50-60% of your caloric intake is Protein. The reason for this protein will keep you more satiated on a caloric deficit, and you will lose more weight on this plan simply due to the thermic effect of protein. This is also more important if you were weight lifting because it helps muscle retention when on the deficit. You can fill in the rest with Carbs and Fat as you see fit. So, an example for me would be: 60%: 258g Protein | 86g Carbs | 38g Fat 55%: 237g Protein | 97g Carbs | 43g Fat 50%: 215g Protein | 108g Carbs | 48g Fat I'm going to shoot for 60%. Food: So how am I going to eat all that Protein? In the past year, it's been even easier since I discovered the Air Fryer. I bought one like this and I'm not exaggerating when I say this thing has changed my life. I can buy chicken breasts or chicken tenders, throw them in there with some spices, and they come out so exquisitely delicious. This appliance has made it much easier for me to cook things like sweet potatoes, steaks, fish as well. My diet in general will pretty much be: Protein sources: Chicken (mainly) Steak Tuna Salmon Bacon Eggs Carbs: Sweet Pototoes Rice Fruit (lots of Apples) Spinach Broccoli Fat: Mainly from fattier cuts like the steak, bacon, and salmon Balsamic vinaigrette dressing I don't really eat a lot of grains, but that's not to say you can't. Tracking: You will need to weigh yourself at the same time every day, preferably first thing in the morning and keep a log. I like to use weightgrapher.com. Don't underestimate how hard it can be to remember to do this. When you look at your weight, it's super important to not judge anything based off of that one day. Your weight might actually go *up* on some days. We'll really be looking at it on a 1 or 2 week basis and maybe making some adjustments, but only then. If we do the calculations correct and implement this right, we should see a weight loss of about 0.5kg-0.7kg a week. It's also important to remember that the 12 weeks is not a goal. This is huge. What I mean is there is no pass or fail grade at the end of this. The 12 weeks is simply an arbitrary commitment we are making to do this. You will judge how you want to proceed after that. There is a high likelihood I will probably continue on for a few more week or so depending how what I think. Summary: To really sum it up, it's just 1) eat you caloric intake and 2) do your walking. Done.
  14. I'm getting ready to run my numbers to calculate calories if you are still game ๐Ÿ‘ Either post here or PM me your weight (kg is fine) and height. I might have a few more questions after that. After that, I will either post or PM you the guidelines and we will get on this! The next 3 days are my last in a caloric surplus until I finish the 12 weeks. I'll be throwing away any cereal I have left over just in case ๐Ÿ˜„
  15. This doesn't make sense until you consider a future where content is king, hardware is diminished, and you need people to subscribe to your streaming service.
  16. I never played the first one, but considering this now that I skipped Anthem. Looking forward to reviews. Do we know when they drop?
  17. Sold! The replies to this tweet are hilarious though.
  18. I can't wait to see what they do with X-Men. Are there any rumors to how they'll handle it? Are they cutting ties with the Fox universe after Dark Phoenix?
  19. The only thing I know about Captain Marvel is she was the reason Rogue got her strength and flying ability. It'd be cool if they could work that into the new X-Men reboot.
  20. I still have my Dragon Warrior I got for free from Nintendo Power.
  21. This was a .1 increment update for the forum software, meaning it was more than just bug fixes, but most of the stuff added wasnโ€™t anything we use. At least we got a + button now! Patch notes for anyone interested: https://invisioncommunity.com/release-notes/
