  2. I'm gonna rip of the sports version of this thread and create one for music. There are times when I want to mention something music related but it's not deserving of a thread, like that Mindless Self Indulgence thread and when I post my mix albums, and this can be a good place to just discuss anything about music that you don't think should have its own thread.
  3. Just got this for $50 on Amazon. It has good reviews, it looks comfortable and it doesn't look cheap.
  4. My biggest complaint about switching over to iPhone, by far, was the way the albums were organized. While you still can't truly organize the way you want, with iOS 12 they at least buried the million useless albums that they force on you into lists at the bottom. Now custom albums are at the top where they belong. So that's good.
  5. This is a boring year for phones. The Galaxy S9 was basically a carbon copy of the S8. I don't know much about the Note 9 but it appears that their grenade phones have returned from two years earlier. And iPhone didn't do anything big this year. I imagine next year will be a big one for Samsung with the magical 10 number on their two flagships. I used to get a new phone every two years but phones have basically been perfected now and after spending a ludicrous $1,000 on one earlier this year, I don't see myself getting a new phone for a long time, possibly three years from now when they announce the new iPhones in September 2021. I'm hoping my next new phone is all screen (even though the notch doesn't bother me at all) and 5G (even though 4G speeds are fine for me). Yeah I watched a video from Marques Brownlee (my go-to tech person) and he said that the XR is only 720p. Really surprised to hear that. I figured the bare minimum on anything now would be 1080p. It seems like this phone screen is worse than I initially thought.
  6. That was definitely Rousey's best singles match. I was getting a little worried lately that she wasn't showing much improvement because her recent matches have all been the same but she put on a good showing tonight. Also, I really want Alicia Fox to get fired. She is awful. She's out there so distracting tonight in some Halloween costume. Whenever she takes a bump she always exaggerates the bump and it looks like she's clowning around instead of selling the attack. Outside of that two week period like five years ago when she threw a temper tantrum after matches, she's been totally irrelevant and useless for her entire overly-long WWE run.
  7. I suppose I posted my comments prematurely. With just a few short minutes left in the game, I didn't think my anger could possibly get stronger towards anyone other than Treadwell. Boy was I wrong.
  8. I've seen enough of Laquon Treadwell for one lifetime. Time to release him.
  9. I just found out about this a few weeks ago. There have been no details released since E3 but this a real thing and it is happening. My most wanted Xbox accessory, by far. I'd pay $200 for this thing...
  10. I'm looking on Amazon and all I see are Studio3 ones that are $150 or more. Is that the cheapest they go? Also, another question...do any wireless headphones work with iPhone? There's Bluetooth on the phone so I wouldn't see why not. I don't care about Siri integration or anything like that. I just want somewhat decent headphones for like $50 that work and will always work with my phone.
  11. I'm having a computer issue and I'm not getting any responses on reddit so I'm hoping some of you can help... https://www.reddit.com/r/computer_help/comments/9fm13i/do_i_have_a_virus/
  12. Luigi's Mansion 3 is very surprising and good news and it's coming next year. The Yoshi game finally has a name and is also coming next year. There's a lot of stuff next year. I'm beginning to think Metroid Prime 4 might be a 2020 release.
  13. 1. Just a regular pair of headphones, only wireless and made by Apple to work perfectly with the iPhone. I can't use AirPods. Those types of headphones are just way too uncomfortable for me and they easily fall out of my ears. 3. You and me both. I really wish there was consistency with the names and I was hoping they'd release the 8 again with some upgrades and call it the 9. In the future they should call the phones X2, X3, etc. and pronounce the X as "ex" and then just add Max to the end of the bigger version. So two phones a year, regular and big. And then every single year until they totally redesign the iPhone again, they just keep the X with the number at the end. That seems like a simple way to do it. Get rid of all these other dumb numbers like S and R.
  14. I don't know if any of you caught any of the Apple stuff yesterday. I saw a few recaps online. The names of these phones are awful. Apple likes to keep thing simple and streamlined and yet they have a phone called iPhone XS Max. What a mouthful. It reminds me of New 2DS XL. The Max version makes sense for people who like tablets in their pockets. The XR makes sense because it's a screen difference most people won't notice and it's a $250 savings that everyone will notice. I don't see the point in the XS, though. I think the battery is 30 minutes better or something. Seems like a pointless new version of the X. Even though most people know about iOS 12 by now, it seems like that was ignored and isn't launching until Monday as a way to take the focus off of that exciting update and keep the focus on the phones. I also wish they announced over the head AirPods...although I'm sure they'd be way too expensive.
  15. Also, Beth Phoenix, Paige and Renee Young is the rumored announce team for Evolution. This is an awful idea. Renee Young is as green as grass and the other two don't know what they're doing behind the desk. I had just assumed they were going to go with Cole, Young and maybe someone else.
  16. I guess Batista said he hasn't been invited to SmackDown 1000. Man WWE really hates this guy. They're so upset he made it in Hollywood on his own.
  17. The gunshots are very easy to avoid. Just hit the dodge button when your spider sense goes off. And there's even a really helpful upgrade where you can hit triangle after the dodge and instantly take down the guy with a gun. As for the guys with melee weapons, just hold square to fling them up in the air to attack them.
  18. No. I just don't like when the next video starts automatically. I like to have enough time to back out before the annoying auto-played next video starts. Probably the most annoying thing about the internet nowadays are videos being shoved down our throats. You try to skim through Netflix and if you stop to read the description for a show or movie for two seconds it starts playing automatically. A video ends and the next one starts in five seconds. A bunch of websites have videos at the top of their articles and when you scroll down because you don't give a shit about the video, they don't take the hint and the video follows you down the page.
  19. Story thoughts of Act 1...
  20. I just started watching Jack Ryan. I'm two episodes in. Very good so far. It feels kinda like 24 in its prime only more grounded. And one thing that Prime Video has over Netflix (aside from no horrible autoplaying wherever you go), when the episode ends there is a countdown for the entire length of the credits before the next episode automatically starts. You don't have to race to the remote to hit the back button like with Netflix.
  21. You guys hear this nonsense about Shawn Michaels coming out of retirement for a tag team match in Saudi Arabia in November that won't even be on WWE Network? All these years retired and he comes out of retirement for a tag team match at a house show. I really hope he doesn't come back. I want my final in-ring memory of HBK to be the WrestleMania main event against the Undertaker, going out while leaving us wanting more. I don't need to see a 53-year-old man masquerading as the Showstopper, while not even coming close to living up to the hype. Also, sorta related...last Monday was a big missed opportunity when HBK called out all those wrestlers that came out of retirement and never mentioned the guy he was in the ring with.
  22. Where do you people stream games?
  23. - This may have to do with me never liking to play as multiple characters in games I didn't really see the point in playing as MJ. It kinda feels like they just wanted to get a playable female character in there for brownie points. With that said, I do enjoy MJ from the little I've seen of her so far and I do like to see a little of the out-of-costume stuff. It helps flesh out the characters and universe. - Now that I've gotten used to it more (and can complete an encounter without dying multiple times), I'm really enjoying the combat. It's like the Arkham combat but it's faster and there are more places to get up high. I'm early in the game and this could change once I get more upgrades but it does feel like there aren't many ways to take out people from the air, despite the game actively encouraging you to do it that way. But on the ground it's a lot of fun and that's how I'd prefer to take out enemies anyways. - It's always fun to clear stuff off of a map in open-world games. Hell, usually that's more fun than the main story. And in 99%, possibly 100% of games, collectibles are basically useless. I LOVE how every little side thing you collect or accomplish in this game is currency that you need to get new suits and upgrades. Sometimes I'll get distracted with side activities in games and feel kinda guilty doing that before the main story but with the way you upgrade and get new stuff in this game it's actually important to do this side stuff.
  24. @TaNbULL I'm about an hour into Spider-Man and it's awesome so far. The web-slinging is exhilarating, the graphics might be the best I've ever seen on consoles and the theme song is very catchy and feels perfect for this game. The combat is fun but feels a little overwhelming so far because they give you a lot right off the bat. It's easy to learn but it will take a little while to master and remember everything. @pen I'm glad they're leaving some big villains out. I don't like when every single major villain for a hero is used in one game and then they almost all return for the sequel. If they make a trilogy, I'd like to see 1/3 of the big Spider-Man villains in each game. They all make an appearance in one game and they all have proper time in the spotlight. I'm glad that it seems like Venom, Carnage and the black suit aren't in this game. No need to overstuff it when that can be the focus for the sequel.
  25. I've been going to a local place for haircuts for my entire life. I think way back when it was $10, then $12 and now it's $15 so I give $18 which includes the tip.
