Arts & Entertainment / The Avengers Project

Square Enix and Marvel teaming up. This should be fun. Throw in Eidos, and I think this will be pretty epic in terms of graphics and playability. Very much do want.

Arts & Entertainment / I Subscribed to a Newspaper
« on: January 25, 2017, 04:16:48 PM »
I subscribed to a print newspaper for the first time ever (which also includes online access). I started with my local paper, since it was reasonably priced. I simply got tired of online rags passing themselves off as journalists. I was also tired of my news aggregation apps interweaving op-ed pieces in with actual reporting without clearly identifying those articles as opinion pieces.

The writing and reporting is simply better. This gives me hope that journalism isn't just a dead art, reduced to pandering sensationalist headlines for clicks. Of course, many of the same articles can be read at online newspaper sites, but I have always enjoyed reading on paper more than on a screen.

All I can do now is hope for a resurgence in print media and quality journalism. I still get headlines and breaking news online, but now I'll get the in-depth analysis from the paper the following day. This helps avoid a common problem where being the first to break a story is more important than getting the details correct. Given that a vast majority of stories don't immediately impact my life, waiting for the morning paper to get a quality take on a story is much better, at least to me.

Arts & Entertainment / I'm Going to the Fiesta Bowl

If they don't win, there is a 87.654% probability I die tonight.

I was very lucky last time, but the odds of this have moved up to 98.97% this time around, especially since I'm about 2 Grand into this bitch. 10 rows back at midfield on the OSU side. You'll probably see me on TV.

Arts & Entertainment / Final Fantasy XV
« on: November 30, 2016, 01:42:23 AM »
I just picked up FF XV. I preordered a couple months ago. Ended up upgrading to the Deluxe to get the Kingsglaive DVD. I haven't really enjoyed a FF since X, so I have high hopes. Going to watch Kingsglaive tonight. I'll post back when I get around to playing, which may be a while.

Technology & Information / I Bought a PS4 Pro
« on: November 10, 2016, 08:31:03 PM »
Picked it up last night. Installed a 1TB SSD in it this morning and got the firmware installed. Bought Infinite Warfare from the store and am downloading now. I didn't have the original PS4 nor an X Bone. This should be fun. I think I'll get FIFA next.
