    is playing Little King's Story again.

    I never finished it. :-( So I just picked up where I left off, about 40 hours in. I played around to get the feel for it back, and am advancing again. I just made it past the part with the Reborn Dragon in the cage.

    Looks like our cities are playing each other in hockey. Good job taking game one!

    Down to the wire now. Game 6 tomorrow.

    And that's the series. Sorry about winning, and I do mean that: you guys are one of the few franchises that also haven't exactly had success going all the way.

    I vote we gang up on amp, and take some of his team's wins.

    on 26 May 2016

    Amp is a Blackhawk fan, right? I'm down.

    on 27 May 2016

    Yeah, almost 50 years now. Haven't seen the finals since 1970. I hope you guys win. Although I would have been rooting for Bishop and the Lightening had they advanced, Pittsburgh doesn't need another cup though.

    I also hate the new playoff format. Not to take anything away from the Sharks, but the Blues seemed tired. They blew their chance when they didn't eliminate Chicago in 5 or 6, or Dallas in 6.

    on 27 May 2016

    Wholly agreed. It's no secret that the Sharks planned to use the extra rest from the get go, especially since it's already been a very, very extended playoff season.

    on 29 May 2016

    :-( Too, bad. Not the outcome I was looking for.

    on 14 June 2016

    It was inevitable. Our wings were waxen, and we flew way too close to the sun!

    In all seriousness, they made it three rounds further than I expected, so I certainly can't complain.

    Are you the HD version of Gribble?

    Lol, someone mentioned this same thing about a year ago.

    on 14 February 2016

    I have a version with the smile turned into a frown. Maybe I should go with that,

    Sorry, my phone won't allow me to post on comments. It is really surprising that a COD has that much content. Impressive. Glad your about done!

    Well...not sure I would call it that much content.

    To get my money's worth, I play though on every difficulty level. That means this is my forth (and final) play-through.

    It is a different experience on the harder difficulty levels. I don't think I really understood the second to last level until this last play-through.

    At the last checkpoint you are assaulting a building, and eventually trigger a set-piece. On the easier difficulties, it is really easy to just run up close, take cover, and occasionally pot shot some enemies. On the hardest difficulty, I finally understood the need for the sniper rifle and rocket launcher you can find laying around, and the different cover available. That stuff just wasn't needed before, and now I understand the way the level was meant to be played. I also figured out what exactly triggers the set piece (I think).

    Same thing with the last level on the second hardest difficulty. There is a section on the parliament floor. I mostly just killed people on the easier difficulties. On the second hardest difficulty, I figured out exactly who to target to move the objectives along.

    Granted, a lot of the harder difficult only stems from the waves of grenades that the enemies throw right on top of your head even if they shouldn't be able to see you. And their crazy accuracy and reaction speed. And the fact that they all seem to wear crazy good body armor. It is unbelievable the number of times I put a rifle bullet into someone's chest, and instead of acting like they got shot, they just take aim and near insta-kill me instead. So that part of the game just kind of sucks.

    Whatever happened to the Racing genre?

    in Gaming Discussion 4 days ago

    Like others have mentioned, I think it has more to do with industry wide trends than anything to do with the genre itself. It seemed like a lot of racers were middleware. That part of the industry has all but disappeared as the big publishers try to push everything toward AAA style releases. That is too bad, as there used to be some fun little racers out there....
