      I been good and you? But still no internet for me

  2. sigh Google really dose want to own the world. I mean I like google services a lot, but they really should not be getting into gaming this way.

      I do not think there is any company that does not want to own the world.

      Sadly, they pretty much own the Internet right now.

      True be that 

  3. Started writing what is going to be a one shot fan fic. Its turning out awesome story wise so far.

  4. I agree fully with him on this matter. It is very much a destruction of art among other things.

      Addictive/addicted behavior aside (candy crush anyone?), there is no such thing as "free".  Everything costs somebody something to make, and nobody willingly gives anything away for free.  If you're getting a good or a service and you're not paying for it with money then you're paying for it in some other way, guaranteed.  That's the first thing that people have to understand.  If you don't understand how you're paying and/or can't control your costs then walk away.  I would rather pay more cash - up front and above board - than pay for something with my privacy, or my rights, or in some other insidious or nefarious way.  If somebody offers something "for free" then cover your wallet.

      The other thing is that the whole "cheap at any cost" mindset is destroying quality.  No matter if we're talking games, health care, household items, professional services, or anything else.  If you want quality then be prepared to pay for it.  If people always go for the cheapest item or the cheapest method without considering anything else then quality WILL suffer.  Not only for you but for everyone, especially if "cheap at any cost" becomes the norm and companies stop offering the higher quality (but more expensive) version due to lack of demand.

      Note that the opposite - paying the highest price in search of quality - is absolutely not a guarantee either.  It is quite easy for a shyster to take the cheapest item and slap a high price tag on it.  There are sellers as well as buyers out there who are looking to get something for nothing.  As always, buyer beware.  Think before you buy.  Ask questions.  Understand what you're asking for in terms of actual cost, not only price.  Compare competing products.  Get guarantees and warrants in writing.

      Doesn't change hthe fact that you knew what you were getting rather then being tricked into something else, or spending more.

  5. I was wearing one of my convention hoodies today while out on my walk. I ended my walk by doing some quick gooseberry shopping at my local market. One of the baggers wouldn't stop complimenting me on it, and the fact I know so much about anime. Plus they kept asking if I was going to a anime con next month like 5 times. All five times I told them yes. I think I made their day more so then they made mine, but still making someone happy is its own reward.

      What kind is it? From what anime?

      Sweet I want to go to one, if I get money in time I definitely going to try to go to one!

    3. ArchieKun

      The hoodie just had the con logo not any anime in particular.

  6. Well first anime con is over for the month now off for April and then back at it again for May. Gotta love con season.

  7. First day of the first con of the year went by so well. Had a great time. Hoping to have as good of time tomorrow, and Sunday. 

  8. I just cannot stop jamming to this dope stuff. 

     

  9. Don't know exactly how I feel about this, but if it tastes good and is somehow healthier then why not.

      I agree very much with this as well. Also we as people hunted animals for food since like forever why should now be any different so long as we do it humanly, and be sustainable.

    3. Seshi

      Seshi

      He problem is it’s not sustainable the way we do it anymore. If everyone ate just what they needed and ate leftovers, it would probably work. But as it is people eat too much and waste even more.

    4. ArchieKun

      ArchieKun

      Right so many people eat so much and so often and not even consider their health, or their impact.

  10. Interesting certainly note worthy. 

     

  11. Just finished Rising of the Shield Hero through the current episode. I love this series.

    1. Illusion of Terra

      Illusion of Terra

      Come and discuss it with us from the next episode onwards :) 

  12. Thx for the follow, and awesome Inuyasha cover photo by the way.

    1. LonelyPoet

      Much thanks

      Anytime Inuyasha is still one of my favorite series to date.

  13. This is cool. I never new about this series of consoles. Yes its kinda lame comparred to pretty much anything else Nintendo has, but a cool collectible all the same.

      I think Final Fantasy Origins was a port of those WonderSwan games because they look pretty similar. Also there were some neat Digimon games for the WonderSwan I remember emulating. 

    2. ArchieKun

      ArchieKun

      That would be pretty cool honestly this vid was the first I have seen of the console. 

  14. So much is happening so fast in my life. Sometimes I just want it all to slow the frick down, but other things I want to happen. Gotta love life when its like that.

      Life doesn’t seem to do gradual change, does it?   :P Hang in there. 

  15. Interesting though I agree with his viewpoints.

  16. I have to ask where do you get your avatars from like all of them have been dope as hell. :) 

    1. HanaApril

      HanaApril

      Thank you kindly. To be honest it's like everyone does, I just search on the net places for the pictures and if one fancy's my taste I then save it and keep it on my computer. 

    2. ArchieKun

      ArchieKun

      Same thats how I do it. I did not make my current one though I do like to make my own from renders too.

  17. USB standards just got way way worse this is so not dope. ehhhh

     

    1. efaardvark

      efaardvark

      If you're talking about all that 3.2 nomenclature murketing then I'd have to agree.  Just when I thought they'd all come to their senses with the USB C connector they go and do something like that.

      The only thing worse is AT&T's murketing over "G5".

      Get used to it though.  The consumer protection groups are being (have been?) systematically defanged, defunded, or outright shut down over the last few years.  I don't expect this sort of behavior get any better any time soon.  Buyer beware.

    2. ArchieKun

      ArchieKun

      Well yah I am used to it. It dose not slow me down at all with my computer background, but that dose not mean I do not feel for the confused consumer at the store. 

  18. This looks really awesome I love this stuff.

  19. Yes yes, and yes.

  20. This is pretty awesome though it was only a matter of time.

      Interesting. I do agree it was a matter of time, but with this progress, I wish the SDXC standard was not capped at 2 TB.

    2. Illusion of Terra

      Illusion of Terra

      Quite pricey but would you need 1 or more TB?

    3. brycec

      brycec

      Depends on usage, but I can see a need for it, with 4K HDR content and such.

      I have one movie and less than 10 shows (most in 1080p) and I have one gig left on the SD card.

      For a Switch though, I do not know.

  21. fehhh I am so over winter had yet another blizzard last night. My balcony is heavy with snow, butt not to much, or anything.

      That is my exact feels of the situation no joke. 

  22. Hay there how are you doing hope things are going well. 

    1. HanaApril

      HanaApril

      Hello I'm doing good I think, thank you for asking. 

    2. ArchieKun

      ArchieKun

      I love your new avatar it suits you well.

    3. HanaApril

      HanaApril

      Thank you very much, I actually was searching for something that kinda reminded me of myself or fits my likes and personality so I thought it looked really cute thus I used it. 

  23. Hay there how are you doing hows it been. I don't think we've talked to much directly so thought I'd strike up a chat if thats ok. :)

      Doing fine,  probably turning in for the night before long.  It’s funny, I just noticed that  I’ve been here almost six months, though I still feel fairly new. While I post some on forums with MAL and Crunchyroll, I prefer comparatively smaller ones since they don’t seem as toxic. Glad I found this place.

  24. Captain Marvel in terms of numbers isn't looking to hot. Though its still Marvel so i'm still gpmma enjoy it.

      I wasn't really interested in it till the last trailer, but am looking forward to it now.

      I never really followed the character in the comics until she became part of the X-men continuity

      Rogue stole her powers permanently and accidentally her memories as well. She later became the character Binary after The Brood tampered with her DNA

      I am however familiar with The Skrulls.

      This is just how much of a nerd I really am. I love anime, comics, sifi, fantasy, history, science, art, gaming, board gaming, card gaming, collecting of course. :) Did I mention technology. lol

  25. Jamming to some kpop can't go wrong.
