    Have you seen the Scuf grips for the Elite controller? Might make a nice fix and spiff up the feel a bit. I have 3 being used by gaming obsessed children, the oldest controller since launch, and none have any problems, including wear issues, but if they announce a V2 I'll re-buy sight unseen.
  4. Music Production (Tools and Techniques)

    So we moved into a new house and 3rd order of business was setting up the music room. It still has a ways to go, but here it is at the moment. I made some DIY sound panels using Owens Corning's acoustic material and mounted them above the listening position. Set up the Sound Construction desk, and believe me, where it currently sits is where it's going to have to stay for the rest of time. It weighs just shy of 7 tons. Probably. The guitar side of the room is basically laid out, but I need to reorganize my pedal board (again). Still a lot left to do, but it's coming together.
  5. Star Wars Battlefront 2

    This seems like a "just the tip" kinda promise.
  6. TOS, set in the context of an unpopular foreign war and the domestic fight for civil rights, would like to have a word with you. Maybe the difference is we weren't beaten over the head with on-the-nose commentary. When we were getting preached to, and that was often, it wasn't as obvious and hamfisted. Preached to instead of preached at? Who knows. Discovery doesn't seem worth the effort to figure out why it rings hollow or falls flat with me. But commenting on a thread about Discovery, oh I got time for that!
  7. Be glad you're not trying load Phantasy Star II! That dude was 6 MEGA MEMORY!! #genesislife #megadrivelife
  8. Not gonna lie, even I enjoyed V more than I care to admit as I don't want to lose my Star Trek Cred Cardâ„¢. As for the kids, if it involves Spock, they are down. After being inconsolable after Khan, they were into Search for Spock whole hog. So, V, being another Vulcan-centric movie made it easy to invest. I enjoyed how Luckinbill went all in in the manner of classic Star Trek over-sentimental and exaggerated acting. Classic, I tell you! It's more of a long-form episode, but by no means is V without merit. Plummer in VI is life. And to update: The kids responded with the appropriate amount of admiration and enjoyment after watching VI. "It's my new favorite movie!" #selfhighfive Here's a cool video discussing Discovery, with explanations of this mess and such. Regarding Discovery, I'll probably not make it to episode 3 as I'm just not motivated to see episode 2 all that much. And I'm just not a fan Martin-Green's acting. She paints with a big fat clumsy brush, and while that might work with exploitive dreck like Walking Dead, it doesn't service Star Trek all that well. To be fair, I haven't seen a single minute of Enterprise, so maybe that's the new standard, but to me, Star Trek is more about easily digestible, yet provocative storytelling that doesn't rip at scars, just pointing a light at them. Sonequa only rips.
  9. We might try some DS9, maybe it'll resonate better with them than it did with me. Or maybe even I'll enjoy it more this time around. We're going to save some time with TNG since I plan to stop after the first Alexander episode or so (maybe just hit some high points thereafter) so there will at least be time for a season.
  10. Not going out of my way to see episode 2. Relatedly, I've been making my kids watch TOS, TAS, TNG, and the movies up to Undiscovered Country and they are having a blast with them. I'm excited for them to see Star Trek VI - it's one of my all-time favorite sci-fi movies. If they don't fall on the floor with glee after it's over, there will be stern talkings to.
  11. Homes, you already listed more than enough reasons to own a Switch. Why so greedy?
  12. You haven't lived until you've tried Metroid: Prime on Dolphin VR.
  13. N64 Classic? Zzzzz Wake me up for the GCN Classic. Side note, someone at Brown published a paper last year scientifically proving that the early days of 3D video games were objectively the worst and prolonged exposure to those clumsy polygons causes "severe bouts of nigh untreatable depression." I thought it was funny because someone from Brown said "nigh." You'd expect that kind of behavior from Columbia or Dartmouth, but Brown? No.
