#2569162 What Are You Playing?

Posted by Jedi on 07 February 2015 - 08:35 PM

Accepted an invitation to play the Vault of Glass raid in Destiny for the first time today. Joined the group, only to find out that they're already on the final boss of the raid.

So, I pretty much just Jiri Slegr'd the Vault today...

#2568606 Diving Fines

Posted by Jedi on 05 February 2015 - 06:56 PM

If you ask me, the better solution than a paltry fine is to change the way the penalty is called.

Player A hooks Player B. Player B embellishes. As it stands now, both player A and Player B receive penalties, for hooking and embellishment respectively.

I say it should be changed to where the embellishment negates Player A's penalty, and the embellishing player's team now goes on the PK.

Then again, SJ would spend the entire 60 minute game shorthanded, so that idea probably wouldn't work...

It's a game, and a manly one at that.  It's taken some time, but the news stories are finally back to men arguing over who has the bigger balls.

Or softer ones, if you're Tom Brady...

Which brings me to my unpopular opinion. I can't stand the New England Patriots.

Sex Pistols
Lighter shade of wings jersey plus the name of the Electric Mayhem's bass player.

I swear, I'm such a nerd. You said lighter shade, and this is the first thing that popped in my mind...

If there are any higher level Destiny players still playing, Xur is selling the Ice Breaker exotic sniper rifle today and tomorrow only.  Quite possibly the single best PvE weapon in the game, if you have the 17 Strange Coins needed to buy it.

I just so happen to have 18 Strange Coins, so uh yeah, I'm buying it tonight, no doubt.

Could we bring him off the bench for shootouts?

#2556876 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by Jedi on 15 December 2014 - 01:02 PM

On December 4th, TSN confirmed that no coaching changes were imminent. Eakins was fired on the 15th...

Guess the definition of "imminent" for MacTavish is 11 days...

The slayer of Goliath meets the name of an old pioneer knife.

David Bowie. You should expect one of LGW' Texans to get that one...

Fruit with extremely good vision.

Horrifically (but intentionally) misspelled name of a high school gym teacher.

Holy crap... Has his nameplate for the Jack Adams even come back from the engravers yet?

#2548785 What Are You Playing?

I have an awesome wife.


She knew I was pretty pissed and probably a little mopey since my PS4 is off for repairs (shipped back home today, will know Saturday if it works or not when it arrives).  So she did a LOT of searching and scrolling online, and found what she was getting me for Christmas.  And then, when she picked it up, she went ahead and gave it to me.


To match my Glacier White BrickstationPlaystation 4, she got me the Cirrus White Xbox One bundle with Sunset Overdrive!


So, I've been playing S.O. for the past couple of days.  It's an... interesting game.  Not necessarily my style, but it is fun to play.  Fully expect it to take a back seat to Destiny when/if my PS4 ever gets up and running again, but I'll get around to it again, for sure.
