Yup making fun of a lem for whether or not they have an Xbone is crying. You sure got me lundy. lol

I feel like you're taking me too seriously. I also feel that you can't quote properly.

Oh you were joking? Hahaha. You're such a funny guy Lundy!

Thanks! I know.

I know it's hard for you to tell the obvious from the non-obvious. It stands to reason that you'd call Mems a lem.

Just don't rage and delete SW, mmmkay?

I'll try and resist the temptation, but I make no promises. ;)

regarding the last episode of hannibal.

it was - as usual, a really enjoyable episode. although i felt the previous episode was a bit better.

i thought the way hannibal framed chilton was really well thought out. also, based on the way hannibal had been speaking I'd never have guessed the character was able to do american accents (or basically an impersonation of Chilton) so convincingly.

obviously, at some point we're going to end up with hannibal fighting jack crawford in hannibal's home. going to be quite interesting to see what happens from now to get us to that point, because hannibal's planted a massive, convincing red herring - at least in my opinion.

You will try and ultimately fail. You'd have to join GS staff first. Do it.

So I realized today that my local Sams Club actually has some of the best pizza in my area.

..how fucking weird is that?

Sams has awesome pizza. Where you been?

News to me man, seriously. Buying a pizza at Sams sounds about as appetizing as buying a burger from Home Depot, or some fajitas from TJ Maxx. I never would have risked it myself, but the fam brought some home.

It's not top notch, but I can safely say I'd take some Sams pizza over Pizza Hut or some damn Dominos.

Really though, I figured it was a fluke. Like some washed up chef had to take a job at Sams Club just to feed his kids, but still took enough pride in his work to make the best pizza he could with what ingredients he had.

That was a really cool story that I was going to flesh out even further with some betrayal, revenge and mafia stuff, but now you ruined it bro. Now I know that's just typical Sams pizza.

I used to work there so I spent many lunches there. The best part is that the slices are big and cheap. Sorry for ruining your Sams pizza fantasy lol

Sell dope.

No I do really crappy 3d graphics work. I landed a job in simulation years back, got tired of it and quit. Come to find out there is an endless stream of people willing to pay good money for low quality 3d models and textures. Seriously, I'm a talentless hack that learns just enough to get by. Yet somehow I'm able to quote $30 an hour minimum on every job and these companies just eat it up.

Right now I'm working a contract creating digital versions of some sports themed merchandise. Not allowed to give more details than that, but holy shit. Every model I build I charge 60 bucks. Each model takes 20 minutes to an hour at most. Each model gets a range of different textures for different teams. Every texture I create is 20 bucks. I can usually knock out 3 per hour. Every time I reverse the colors for a team texture, it's 10 dollars. That takes like 1 minute in Photoshop lol.

And this contract has about 9 months left on it lol

#473 Posted by Shadowchronicle (26039 posts) -

o.o I wish I had a job like that in my free time.

#474 Posted by ConanTheStoner (5674 posts) -

@shadowchronicle:

Yeah it's nice man. The money is decent, the work is easy, but not having to go to an office and deal with a boss is the best. I make up my own deadlines (within reason) and I always give myself plenty of padding. The client is the closest thing I have to a boss, but as long as I hit my projected deadlines I don't even have to hear from them.

I'm not a fan of MS this gen myself, but I'm hoping they'll make a turn around. As far as I'm concerned, the more good games, the better. Nintendo has kind of bummed me out with the Wii U, but I'm not going to shit on or act like a hyperactive little brat towards people that happen to like the Wii U. C'est la vie I suppose.

Oh, and thanks again for the tanking help. The Mr. Happy video helped a ton as well.

Then why are you on SW? lol

  1. Community
  2. General debate
  3. Friendly competition
  4. Watching the salty tears of those whose tuckus hurts

Personally Lundy I like to make fun of the die hard PC/Console fanboys and throw monkey wrenches into their so called "-blank- is better than -blank- cause of some stupid excuse like our system has games while yours doesn't". Also making fun of people who put games on a high pedestal w/o acknowledging it's faults is also fun.

Also Xaero you still on Gilgamesh?

Don't get me wrong. I enjoy a little wrench-throwing myself.

Just look at the Titanfall numbers thread... The image I posted caused a number of Cows to rally together. They got each others back, Jack.

Giant mechs! You disappoint me. How did you wait this long to play XCom?

#498 Edited by jg4xchamp (48403 posts) -

Honestly no fucking clue.

The genre is my type of game, as I'll even tolerate the PSP(Tactics Ogre/Final Fantasy Tacitcs) and handhelds in general(I Love me some Fire Emblem, except for Awakening, which while good as a game for the most part, is highly disappointing for how bitchified it is). Valkyria Chronicles in general is one of my favorites this gen. So yeah after playing XCom. It's like why not?

No stupid jrpg plot line. Shit more importantly no stupid videogame story.

I get to name things like Commander McDuckyswag, The Cruise Missle, Lizzie McGuire, Malory Steel and Cassius(I use them as a pair), it's great, there is this like RIP wall thing to all my fallen comrades. NEVER FORGET.

The metagame before missions is cool as shit. Adds a lot of nuance to the game.

Pretty legit fucking game, right up until I got plasma weapons(well that and it kind of recycles maps way too often) and Lizzie McGuire started raping the aliens left, right, and center with her sniper rifle.

Why I waited this long is beyond me.

You should get the expansion when it goes on sale. Makes the game a lot tougher and adds a few more maps. The mechs completely change the way you play the game because you can be more aggressive. F***, now I want to play me some XCom.

#500 Edited by jg4xchamp (48403 posts) -

Can I name the mechs?

Because I don't think you properly understand how important naming things has been to my experience.
