Real talk, who else has seen this effing movie!?

I loved it, but I literally can't get anyone else to even try it, which is wierd because they will go see the 10th installment of triple X or fast and the furious or another pitch black movie(basically anyone who watches Vin Deisel movies should not pretend to have taste.

Anyways if anyone who has seen it and thinks of it good or bad, I would love to hear about it!?

Warmachine and Hordes General / Missile Break
« on: February 19, 2016, 12:21:16 PM »
I want to post this and maybe sticky it for people. Sometimes in life you are frustrated or sad, and can find no solace in friends, loved ones, Chocolate, etc. For those times when you just need a chuckle, take a missile break.

I do not understand embedding so I just post the direct link:

Guild Ball General / Engineer Dojo
« on: December 20, 2015, 11:58:17 AM »
Ok I bought into engineers because Fishermen and Butchers were kinda the hot teams, and Engineers were the 3rd favorite team aesthetically. I picked my faction based entirely on looks. Everyone told me Engineers were bad, but also everyone was telling me how super balanced and dynamic the game is across the board. So.... I was like.... fuck it!

I am starting to think that I am glad I can just hop into Union with a minimal investment. But here is the rub.

No other team has Velocity.

I did not like her at first, but the more I use her the more I realize shes actually the star of the team. She REALLY controls the ball. I wish she had Super Kick or whatever sometimes but still shes fine with a 4/6 kick.

So some things I have learned that I need to implement better:

I hate Colossus so much but after thinking about it a little bit, I need to use him with my captain a little better. Colossus has a ton of just crappy pushes that generate Momentum or he can choose to do crappy damage and no momentum but if I was more often in range of the Capt I would just get my momentum for doing damage. I need to remember that I am paying a Captain tax on my damage plays, basically across the board.

Why does the Captain then not have a 6" radius or an 8"?! Jesus Christ needing everyone to be within 4" is kind of annoying.

Salvo is over rated. Miss miss miss, thanks for activating first and doing nothing. Happens too often and overshadows those turns where he knocks 3 people down at the start of the turn to completely screw their plans.

Ratchet is Under rated. 2 AoE bombs can be a momentum battery for you, and dole out a surprising amount of damage. If you Tune Up with Rage he can do 9 damage per bomb(I regularly get 3 people in an AoE at some point in any game). Being able to peel your Mascot off the pitch and back into action is also big deal.

Rage: Basically an auto include. Early game he just kinda acts like a goalie for me, and tunes up whoever needs the damage. As the game progresses he becomes the terminator cleaning up all the people on the pitch up have taken 6+ damage from Ron Jeremy's(Ballista) feat and the various AoE's flying around. He is usually the big momentum swinger for me. What am I saying usually. He always is. He's 4 Momentum any time he activates to kill a person, and its usually what my team needs!

Hoist, have not used him yet, can't say I am excited. He looks like a crappier Velocity.

Avarisse and Greede. These guys are amazing when you are winning, and liabilities when you are losing. If you are losing you have to play overly cautious with Greede and often its impossible to disembark without just giving up a free 2 points. If this is happening it just means you now have 2 different 1 influence guys on the pitch and it will catch up to you.  If you are ahead though, these guys are big meanie bullies who help you keep your foot on the gas and not look back. I do love them though!

I have not really used Decimate and Gutter yet with the team.

Compound sucks the nuts. Counter charge in Guildball is every single bit as shitty in GB as it is in Warmachine. Worst fucking rule ever. All his abilities are shit to. His Odor needs to just be always on. I am not going to activate compound first every turn to turn his odor on, then let their captain get a free fucking pass to murderball my team, and THEN I start playing. Since he is just a loaf of shit in the back he often has no need to be given influence, and then he activates later in the turn , and well, I just think he's a piece of shit really. fuck him.

Ok so I am not posting this to educate Engineer players but more to show what my impressions are. What have I got wrong, what have I been missing? I win games, but I generally always feel frustrated and behind the 8-ball, whereas when I played Butchers, I felt like I was more in control of the game.

Anyone getting Engineers to work well, an tech I have not picked up on?

Warmachine and Hordes General / Cephalyx in Warroom
« on: June 06, 2014, 01:19:33 PM »
I updated Warroom and in the notes it says it added Cephalyx to my collection, but I cannot find the buggers anywhere. There is no 5th mercenary contract, and I cannot seem to access them from anything. I can view them but not make a list with them?

Muse on Media / TMNT the end of our childhoods has finally come
« on: March 27, 2014, 07:00:31 PM »
We all knew this was going to suck badly but they can't even make the trailer seem cool.

https://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-news/cowabunga-first-look-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-172911094.html

It was as if we watched the Hobbit and Smaug and decided the universal studio rides featured in those movies was the ONLY part worth watching. So he decided to do it much worse,and make the turtles just really crappy looking, if not a little creepy.

Hey though, maybe they can finally hit the skiiing down a mountain, sliding down a mud chute, and tubing down some rapids trifecta in a movie about Turtles in the city.

Fuck this guy.

Muse on Media / True Detective
« on: February 19, 2014, 06:03:06 PM »
Who has been watching this show? I have been, and I have been loving it. As a huge Cthulu fan(I hope one day Cthulu mythos gets more popularity like Zombies and Vampires) there is a ton to look forward to in this.

I love that 5 episodes in, its all build up. Just enough progression and resolution to keep the viewers who think they are just watching a cop noir satisfied. The next 3 episodes could be an epic bait and switch for a lot of viewers.

I have already talked conversationally to a few other people who also watch the show and they are completely in disbelief that the show is headed the way I think it is. I am pretty sure Harrelson is the serial killer or something to that effect, a cultist at the very least, and McConaughey is likely the half mad good guy hot on the trail, playing crazy, coy who knows.

I also think Harrelson knows McConaughey’s on to him so hopefully the present day story starts gaining steam.

Warmachine and Hordes General / Uh Oh is War Room my new TB?!
« on: December 24, 2013, 03:49:22 PM »
SO recently I took the Muse Khador Dojo list and played it, and it consisted of

pVlad
Decimator
Malakov
Decimator
Aiyana and Holt
Valachev
Great Bears
Full RifleCorp
Grigorovich
Full Ternion Cav
Greylord Ternions
55/55pts

This is all fine and good I punched it up on warroom.

Then I recently noticed that Malakov is actually on Forward Kommander, so I made the list official like so I could use the damage grids, and I had 2 extra points which I used to buy mechanics.

re math'd it out and Forward Kommander is right and War Room is off by two points.....

I played this for a week 2 points down using war room. So annoying that I actually have to math check my list software.

18
I want us to put some pressure on Muse on Minis to get them to take the best 32 "pimp my list" lists. put them into a 32 seed bracket tournament and then play out the results. The winner of this Crap Madness tourney(the list specifically) should have to be played by Keith at Gen Con or some other tourney.

I feel like this is an amazing idea because it is like 6 months of content. First you spend 3 months vetting which lists get in. Then you spend a couple of months having Mayhem comics players and other volunteers play the lists vs each other and document the results.

2: All teh Mercenary Solos.

Warmachine and Hordes General / Movie suggestions
« on: August 29, 2013, 01:18:41 PM »
I am going to go see a movie today. Here is the list of options.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
The World's End
You're Next
Kick-Ass 2
Elysium
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

I realized I have not been to the movies in a while and hence have not had much cause for a movie review. I am  panning on draging at least two other casters to see this. I will try to get Benesh to also go, because I still owe him for Warm Bodies.  >:(

I listed then in order of likelyhood I would melt down.
