Tonight my wife and I put all our other shows on hold to start Luke Cage.

Good game and good fun! Congrats Lucario. Looks like I'm one of those "always a top-four, never the victor" type or persons. But I am now in the lead for lifetime score! Hah!

Ubisoft did have to approve of the deal, even if Nintendo was paying, so I can see where some thanks can be spared for them. Especially if they don't want to spare any other revealing details on the nature of the project.

That should give me time to catch up to you then.

I just got to HR3 and am working on my first "real" set. I stalled on Maccao's armor and ended up throwing together a Loc Lac set for the kilt action and the Gathering bonus, since I need to begin to build up my horde of stuff for later endeavors.

First real set will be Mosgharl since it is the earliest set with Focus, and the fire attack + will be nice for when I get a Rath bow. Looks like I could gem in constitution easily as well since it gives points for that as well. It will be my go-to bow set for a good while I suspect.

Not sure what armors I want as few have really jumped up and grabbed me yet. The Rath Dreadwing is the only one that has done so, but we'll see what else comes up as I progress.

A-ha! I have fooled you, for I am a Scott as well!

Glad to hear good things about Lethal Weapon. I was on the verge of writing it off as a cheap knock-off cashing in on a popular movie series. I'll check it out once we are done with the current line of shows on out to-watch list.

Anyone watch the new MacGyver show at all?

Ahh, a list of your mother's prior careers. She was always fond of her little titles, but in the end, she was nothing but a Cheap Prostitute.

Fate will prove that I am the baddest Bond of the series!

I finally opened Monster Hunter Generations so if anyone wants to play I should be ready to go online soon. I started a Gen thread for discussion too in the handheld section in case we get a bit of a following going.

Yeah, this game oozes Banjo-Kazooie flavor and I love it. Buying the game day-one.

The game supports voice chat? Never even knew that.

Do wish we could get an option for a persistent world online. I'd even pay a couple bucks to have the option of it.

So I don't see anything here about this game and I finally dove into it. I remember some people here mentioning wanting to play so figured I would reach out and see if anyone was still game for some hunts.

Alternately, I am also down to go back and play either 3U or 4U since I have things yet-to-be completed there as well. Will hunt most anything.

In general if you see me online I will welcome the company. I default my password to 6464 unless I am playing in a different group.

Interesting, I never ran into those glitches on either version. Though I don't play with a lot of people online.

So does this mean we can finally play sometime soon Mop it up?

BATMAN was on Gotham tonight.

Crazy, We are starting S2 on Netflix soon. Excited to get back into that show.

I really think Mack from AoS would have been a great Luke Cage. He has a better look and voice that I would associate with Luke more so than Mr Colter.

Before all of the announcements were made about Luke Cage casting, I actually thought this was an avenue they were planning with Mac becoming Luke Cage.

Ubisoft took a gamble and made a lot of money all in on them with the Wii.  Ubisoft is willing to take gambles because they know early system launch that you can usually make your investment back.

I am curious about Ubisoft's numbers for the Wii U if they did make money or not.  Overall, betting on Nintendo early in the life cycle is probably still a safe bet.

Ubisoft's Wii U lineup is bigger than it should have been. Even after it was clear the system was a dud they picked up the tab for Cloudberry Kingdom, released Splinter Cell Blacklist, finally gave us Rayman Legends and released an Assassin's Creed game that they knew was probably going to tank hard (it did). Then they threw us another bone with Child of Light. Then almost a full year later gave us WatchUnderscoreDogs.

You could say any money they made from the Wii U's launch was lessened by what they put out the rest of that first year.

For what it is worth, I bought most of those Ubi titles to support them in that investment. Granted, there was not a lot else going on the system, but I appreciated having the titles available.

I was just wondering Who is Andre the Giant?

He sure wasn't Andre the Giant, that's for sure! Aha-haha!

I like the idea of doing a tier system because I would use it to get newer episodes of shows. It would also allow them to compete more directly with Amazon where you can buy access to full current seasons of shows.

But on the flip side, they may not want to do any sort of tier system because of how badly that went the last time w/ the DVD break off and risk alienating the majority of their users. Again though, Amazon is doing something similar and doing fine so it would probably be better for them to try something out.

I would be willing to go up to $20-25 if it meant more content or quicker availability of currently airing shows.

On a different note, you should consider changing the thread poll to something more relevant. How about what our favorite Netflix series is (Marvel, Stranger Things, Get Down, etc.), or how much we would be willing to pay for a Netflix Plus service?

A-HA! The game is afoot! I choose Khushrenada's Mother for $800!

So I am enrolled in a Geology course all about Dinosaurs for my final natural science course. Pretty excited to dig into some more meaty material and I'll post anything cool I find here. Would be fun to discuss what I am learning with Halbred.

So in anticipation for both Luke Cage and Dr Strange I am updating our spoiler alert thread.

Dr Strange synopsis:

Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), a young, arrogant surgeon with a promising career, loses his ability to operate after a terrible accident. Despondent and suicidal, Dr. Strange seeks advice from a mystical being known as the Ancient One and learns that he is the newly designated Sorcerer Supreme, responsible for protecting the planet from evil. With his girlfriend Clea and his loyal assistant Wong in tow, Strange sets out to fulfill his destiny.

We are almost to the release of Luke Cage as well. I never finished JJ so I'd better get on that before this since it take place after JJ S1.

If it means the return of the pointer driven FPS mechanic in future COD and Splatoon titles than I am all in for the detachable controller feature. Hopefully this turns out more like what happened when Nintendo went to optical media (super fast load times) versus what happened with some of their other experimental features.

My body is more than ready for the challenge, Trebek, as was your mother's last night. AH-HAH-HAHAH!

I always felt that the Super-folks' biggest challenge should have been how to NOT kill people in their line of work. Like moving at human speeds is difficult for them and learning how to use their powers on a setting other than annihilate.

This game needs to come to the West. Really hoping to get a release for the Spring/Summer of next year.
