    I only vaguely remember the novel. I'm expecting this will be the usual CGI Young Adult shitfest that will somehow manage to make hundreds of millions.
  3. Games and Gaming News

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/504370/Battlerite/ I tried Battlerite out the other night, it's free to play - but their monetization seems reasonable, they have an option to buy all the heroes for $30. It's very similar to Bloodlines Champions (if anyone remembers that). It's basically a top down team arena. Think league of legends with no items and no minions, just team deathmatch style arena in 2v2 or 3v3 varieties. It's quick and relatively interesting, but I doubt I'll play much more of it. The simplicity and speed is fun, but the hero selection is small and the lack of objectives probably gets old quickly. Neat game, just not for me.

    Didn't realize you could get 8 TB externals for that cheap now. Makes it tempting as my 2 TB backup has been going on since 2009 (that's 8 years now). I feel I should upgrade just for safety's sake.

    It's $30 per shirt. I've edited the above comment for clarity. Their shirts do crease, you need to iron them semi-frequently. Every shirt I've ever worn, no matter how "non-iron" they claim it to be always creases, this is inevitable. I find their fitting to be pretty decent and have not tailored their shirts, I've had good luck with 17" neck and 36" sleeves. Everyone has a different body type so what works for me may not work for you. Did you mean J Crew or J Crew Factory? I've bought some J Crew factory suits, which I think are pretty decent. I haven't tried their dress shirts mostly because they're too casual for my tastes, I've been trying to buy shirts that lean slightly more on the formal/business side rather than the casual side of business casual. I'd consider trying to find some sport jackets/blazers but all the ones I've found are rather expensive. I need to do some more digging.
  12. [Movie] Logan Lucky

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5439796/ This was enjoyable. It's very similar to the ocean's 11 movies (same director) but it's a nice bank heist film.
  13. Black Friday 2017

    So $30 per shirt or $30 for 3 shirts? Either way I have not been super satisfied with my CT shirts (baggy needs tailoring and creases super easily). I'm slowly migrating over to jcrew factory slim oxford which are also not perfect but are a small improvement for me overall. I will probably end up blow out the elbows on these too considering I have done that to like 4+ shirts over the last 3+ years from multiple brands.

    Charles Tyrwhitt sale currently going on 3 shirts for $30/each and free shipping. http://www.ctshirts.com/us/USOT29 I'm debating going a bit ham on this sale, mostly because I need to retire a couple shirts and I should really get a pair of gray slacks. I might also consider getting a more business casual sweater like this. I was also considering getting a few usb C cables and possibly a power pack. I also really need to just bite the bullet and get a proper briefcase/bag and upgrade my lunchbox for work.

    No, it functions like superspeed. You are stealthed and can run freely. People found out that you can jump into/onto ledges and the superspeed/physics allow you to launch and gain height. That's why all these hops start by jumping into a ledge or object.
  16. Overwatch

    Hmmm. So it kind of functions like a long, low gravity jump.

    There's also a nice thread showing some of the more ridiculous and useful jumps her fade skill can enable. https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/7dfng8/moira_chain_fade_jump_showcase_xpost/

    Based on rtings reviews (black friday special list) The Samsung MU8000 looks like a pretty decent option but it's kinda $$$. Sidenote: rtings filter looked like it was gone/removed but it's still around you just have to drill down to a specific test and then modify the table filters from there as desired: http://www.rtings.com/tv/tests/motion has just one column so easy to add more. $900 for this 55" is pretty good.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06WVH9T2D EDIT: Looks like BH has this for same price and no tax.... https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1320403-REG/samsung_un55mu8000fxza_mu8000_55_4k_hdr.html EDIT: And Dell: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/samsung-55-inch-4k-ultra-hd-smart-tv-un55mu8000f-uhd-tv/apd/a9662824/tv-home-theater?prg=1&VEN1=12578053-227502-27292e2d-88de-4d24-a167-ada0462ca056&AID=227502&dgc=CJ&DGSeg=DHS&c=us&s=dhs&cid=198375&lid=45846&acd=12309198375458460&VEN3=112204143242432782 This is just on sale everywhere?

    Fry's Black Friday throughout November sales still coming through: Dummy Cameras lol... https://www.frys.com/search?query_string=9241309&nearbyStoreName=false&site=96premail111717 New option for 65" low end: Samsung 65" UN65MU6290FXZA - $788 - Link Tech:1 Size: 1 Price: 3 Similar to the Best Buy model but it clearly states HDR Pro, and 3 HDMI ports rather than 2. Both models appear to Black Friday specials.
  20. [Movie] Dune (Villeneuve edition)

    Yeah, I have not seen it in a long time but I agree. One special trivia point of pride for me is that I have the screener for this:
  21. [TV] Mr. Robot

    Meh. This weeks was good but last week was still special to me. More creative.
  22. [TV] Mr. Robot

    So if you thought last episode was good... better strap in.

    https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20759535818 Moira is out on live. She will be disabled from ranked play for 1 week (like previous hero launches). Small ana buff, moderate mercy nerf. I have a feeling this will shake up the hero selection a bit.
  25. [Movie] Dune (Villeneuve edition)

    My favorite remains the Sci-fi miniseries.
