I heard California might implement a stay at home order again on or around the 1st week of July, because people are morons, this would have been over around this time but again people are morons lol.

buncha old women in my life have split up the time between saying the world was going to end and we are all going to die all day long and still going to their local hair dressers every week the entire damn pandemic

PSA: Comcast removed its data cap on its broadband until Tuesday, June 30th in response to the pandemic.

https://corporate.comcast.com/covid-19

As a Comcast customer, I'm downloading anything on Game Pass that I might be remotely interested in trying out before that date.


Download everything, fill that hard drive up with things other than games, like movies and music 🤫

Didn’t see it mentioned and not sure if it’s targeted, but I had a dashboard ad for 1 month of EA access for 99 cents for non-members. I’ve subscribed before and it still let me do it. Might see if I can get enough points to pre order Squadrons at a discount before it expires.

I almost wonder if instead of going after Shroud and Ninja, what if they had spent that 40 million on 40 slightly less popular streamers at $1 million a piece to come to Mixer, maybe that would have done them better. Doesn’t really matter now, just speculation at this point.

Other streamers signed contracts with Mixer, we just didn't hear much about it because it wasn't for the megabucks that Ninja and Shroud got.  What Microsoft could've done was buy Twitch before Amazon, but they didn't have the foresight and then just kept trying to play catch up.

 

In related news, it looks like Dr. Disrespect just got perma-banned from Twitch (his emotes have been removed and all subscribers have been refunded).  Over the last week a ton of stories have come out about rapists, pedophiles and abusers on Twitch.  It looks like Twitch evolved into a gamer version of Hollywood with a bunch of Harvey Weinsteins.  The only guy I regularly watch on Twitch is Maximilian Dood so I hope nothing bad comes out about him.

They already reinstated the stay at home order here in Arizona last night.  It is just words though because they aren't forcing any businesses to close or a curfew or anything.  Ducey is a joke.

I live in Indiana and somehow we are in good shape currently. I see so many people without masks or not social distancing. I have a group of health care professionals on my floor that eat lunch together every day in a small room with 6-8 at one table. I just shake my head every time I walk by. I make sure every one of my technicians have access to masks and other PPE and it is mandatory to wear them. If you get sick outside of work that is on you but I am going to do my best to not be responsible for it spreading on my team.

Is it wrong that I see this and think to myself good I can’t stand that freaking guy even though I’ve barely even heard of him. Only seen articles with him crying about COD Warzone, doesn’t impress me one bit. I like watching a kid named NitroLukeDx though he’s pretty much the only streamer I will watch

Wow I seem like a bitter old man at 38

Don't worry, you'll learn to foster that bitterness and harness its power the older you get.

Also, DrDisrespect should have been permanently banned the last time he was temporarily banned.

Update for the Costume Quest 2 quest: Loaded up the GamePass app on my phone, and the quest popped up as cleared right away.  Looks like the tracking might be fixed now.


When I worked on Costume Quest 2 and surviving Mars the other night, it didn’t track at all but showed completed the next day.

Update on my wildly OT car talk. Got a 2011 3 series today. Drives better than the one that was totally led in the accident. I will now apply my CAG card to it by doing a bunch of work on it myself for 75% less than the dealer wanted.

Seriously, YouTube car repair channels are doing the Lord’s work. And oddly enough, the best ones seem to be from the GTA4 “Nico, my cousin!” unnamed countries.

And yes I’m aware my avatar is Corvette flags, the Mrs still won’t let me have a proper midlife crisis.

Don't worry, I feel the same.

 

Also hope all you CAG's in Arizona, Texas,Florida and everywhere else are doing alright. I Text my friend who moved to Florida in March almost every week now to make sure he's doing alright because these are stupid stressful times. In the very least whenever i go to the grocery store I see majority of people wearing masks and maybe like 5-8 tops not wearing masks and it is legitimately the most pride I've ever felt in my state when I keep hearing other states with people not taking this seriously.

 

On the gaming side of things, I "think" I'm close to completing GTAV and it'll probably be the first GTA game I finish, on that note, holy Fuck. Do these games REALLY gotta be this long??

I tried watching him once, he came off as a complete douche bag in the first three minutes of watching, so I stopped watching and never looked back. I have no idea why he's so popular. Consider me another bitter old man with even fewer years on me.

Unbelievably sad and disappointing that people were actually raped by Twitch streamers. All those jackasses do is play video games. It's like you're getting involved with and subsequently raped by an extra in a community play because more than 100 people looked at him that one time. But I guess that's what happens when people get desperate and think any form of celebrity is attractive, even if it's just a girlish ectomorph tool bragging to neckbeards about getting headshots in a game for teenagers.

 

"dON't SAY AnYtHiNG aBOUt THIs, i'M tWItch fAmOuS!"

 

Don't worry, I'm younger and far more bitter about the stupidity of people than you will ever be.

This is not allowed unless you put up a picture of your car next to your car in a video game (Because all of us car people have found our car and made it look like the one we own at least once).

Best I would be able to do is the M version of my car. Forza doesn’t put the base models in their games for some reason.

That’s crazy about Dr. D, he puts on a good show. I don’t know about his personal life, nor do I really care, but he was entertaining on Twitch. I used to like watching him and Krafty and Viss play Apex Legends together. I learned a lot of Apex strategy from watching those 3. I searched the internet and no one seems to know why he was banned for sure yet. If it was something criminal then I bet he is gone for good because Google (YouTube) or Facebook won’t pick him up after that. He spent a long time building that persona and character.

Have you seen the video of the last two minutes of his last stream? Something happened during those two mins.

This is true. I was surprised to find Forza 2 had an Altima in it and promptly went about buying it and making it look like mine. After that it was customizing 350/370zs because I’ve always wanted one. Finally got to test drive a 2008 350 last year and sadly discovered that at 6’ 1” and not as slim as I used to be I might be too big for it.

Dr. Disrespect's phone at that time: "We know your secret. You are not a real doctor"

But Dr. Disrespect is video game and XBox related! I Think. Is he? I Don't know. My personal gut reaction to him when I first saw him is similar to all video game streamers. Fuuuuuck that. I Don't care. Now I am justified in my old man ways.

Shoot am I the only one? Any suggestions?

So.. naturally I think the question becomes what can we do with these Microsoft store gift cards.. to be clear not the ones we are all so familiar with, but the ones that only work in store. I still have credit from that trade in years ago on 360 and ps3 games!!

Not even a phone # on the card yeesh

As long as it’s about gaming related it doesn’t bother me at all. Which I consider mixer and twitch to be gaming.

Can anybody who has played Control answer a serious question? I know sometimes the game sets off some weird people.

I am having am absolute slog of a time. The red and orange enemies. I can't see them after a bit, is this a setting? The game? Am I just that lame\insane? It is just too much red and orange after a while. The one fight with the shields had me nearly break a controller for the first time. I had to quit the game and I loves me some Remedy

Are you talking about Hiss Distorted?  The have cloaks, similar to Predator - you'll only see a faint distortion in the air until you do some damage.  They can definitely be nasty.

 

As for shields, are you talking about one of the boss fights?  A couple of them can be quite difficult.  I definitely recommend doing the side quests whenever possible to rack up as many skill points and good mods as you can.  If you are stuck on a boss and can tell me who it is I may have some tips; of course there are plenty of tips already out on the Internet as well.

 

I absolutely love Control but it does have some difficulty spikes here and there.

As much as I dislike Desantis, these people take the cake:

 

Spoiler

 

I work down the street from that courthouse. I encounter people like this at least once a day. 

 

And on Tuesday, I learned one employee had the virus so tensions are pretty high in Palm Beach to the point where people are fined $250 if they don't wear a mask.

 

 

Regarding Dr. Disrespect: I like that one remix song where someone took him saying "Gillette" and made a theme out of it. Otherwise, I'm not attached. I rarely watch game streams and if I do, if's from Residents of Evil or Easy Allies.  

 

Speaking of Resident Evil, ever since I beat the RE3 remake I've stopped playing the RE games in general. With RE2, I played it over and over yet with RE3 I stopped midway through my second run. In fact, I haven't even been playing video games that much since May. 

 

Did RE3 and my every growing backlog finally crush me? I keep looking at Halo: Reach ... yet it always seem out of reach.
