Sounds like it. We don't really watch a lot of TV as it airs, so we'll have to catch up later.

Re: What are you playing right now?

I picked up Dark Souls III on the Steam sale, and that game is really bad at retaining new players. I can see the appeal, but there's basically no way for a completely new player to get into it without being either naturally talented or getting outside assistance. I'm honestly surprised that no one...

Re: What shows are you recently watching?

My wife started watching 'The Good Place', and I've been intermittently keeping up with it when I'm in the room. It's... very hard to describe, but probably worth watching if you enjoy watching disasters happen in slow-motion. It just... keeps getting worse. Riveting in a sick way. Season 1 is on N...

The Packers do have some struggles, but they seem very dangerous this season. They always get good in December, but if they roll strong into the mid season, they will be in excellent shape. ...I had to say something.

Re: NFL 2017

So after Week 5, we have three winless teams--Browns, 49ers, and Giants. For some fun, who do you think will be the first and last to win a game? Note that the Giants and 49ers do meet in Week 10 in San Francisco. Also for fun, who do you think will beat the currently undefeated Chiefs? For the winl...

It wasn't just Beckham's broken ankle. The Giants also lost wide receivers Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and Dwayne Harris to injury in the same game. The only healthy wide receiver left on the Giants' roster is Roger Lewis. I'm astounded that the Jets, who tossed away all of their veteran tal...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

If you know of a local recording studio, though, you might be able to narrow the search by asking them. That's actually not a bad idea. Though on second thought, there's a small conflict of interest, as I'd be asking them to help me not use their services. I plan to use the booth myself though, for...

I played/finished Metroid: Samus Returns a few days ago. Overall, I am very happy to have another Metroid game, and FINALLY one that makes proper use of the dual screens.

Sleep darts? You can knock them out with normal take downs. And if you want help on that mission: doing the no-kill method knocks all of the remaining witches out.

This is honestly, long term, what will be the main reason I still like my Switch. I actually hope it becomes a solid port / indie machine along with solid first-party support from Nintendo. And that's a solid plan. Nintendo will only get tripped if they try to go directly after the XBone or PS4, bu...

I thought both teams looked good in the first half...on defense. And that's really good for Packers fans, since they generally have a top tier offense, especially in the winter. As for the alleged punch, 1) My guess is that it will be reviewed and the league will have to issue some sort of apology, ...
