  1. I don't have a problem with that either. But anymore, a lot of studios are slowly moving to streaming as the priority. I don't care about subs. I just want a 5.1 format - that essentially every streaming niche EXCEPT the anime one provides.
  2. I contemplated a lot as to whether or not I'd jump in on this. Finding ONE picture is hard. I opted to go with one that hasn't gotten published - mainly because it's from an EXTREMELY restricted area on post - looking away. It's the rooftop of Quarters One looking towards Bettendorf. Incidentally, my family built pretty much all of the homes on the west (closest to the viewer) side of the town in the early 1920s. There's a story behind this picture, but it's a bit longer than I think is necessary for this thread. I will say though, that at the time that I took this picture, I had only worked for the Army for 10 days - it was a beautiful day, and the view was just breathtaking. DES would have killed us. lol
  3. Master's aren't THAT big. We aren't talking about DTS or MQA. Most of the 5.1 audio formats have compressed formats that are easily transmittable over even low bandwidth tiers. That's why Dolby TrueHD became the industry standard - because it reduced the bandwidth use that the original Dolby formats used, and retained most information that the master audio formats used. Again, if Netflix, Amazon, and all these other services (many are much more niche than even Crunchyroll, etc) can support a 5.1 bitstream audio format - there's really no excuse.
  4. I'm looking at VRV too, but they don't comment on what type of audio they support. I'm planning on prodding at them to see what's up. What baffles me is that bandwidth has become so cheap that somehow these services don't offer the media in the original master format. If Netflix can do it for $15 a month...I'm pretty sure these other groups *should* be able to do it too.
  5. Unpopular opinion: Sword Art Online is a terrible anime, with bad storytelling, obnoxious characters - and really just a ripoff/wannabe .hack. You can't change my mind.
  6. I need to be taught in the dark arts of discord, I have no idea what I'm doing here. lol
  7. I toyed with putting this in the Anime forum, but it seemed a bit too broad for that. I am in the market to add a third streaming service to my ensemble. Ideally, I was looking at adding some kind of premium anime streaming service like Crunchyroll. However, it is apparently too much to ask for both HD Video and HD Audio. Crunchyroll and most other services I found stop short at just providing HD Video. Does anyone know of any other premium (and I might add, LEGAL) streaming services that provide full HD anime? Dubbed preferred.
  8. Let me know your thoughts on those. Gleig has had issues with keeping his focus on strategic matters and military doctrine in his writings that I've seen. I remember my initial thoughts were almost an offensive kneejerk rebuttal of "This guy has clearly never read a single line of Clausewitz." Then again, Military Historians are often critical of non-military historians when they try their hands in the field. I could just be biased.
  9. Ya'll know what goes with potatoes? BACON.
  10. Added the larger of these pins to the collection. Aviator and paratroop. Just have to wait now until I get my certs in those to wear them.
  11. I see how it is. We aren't good enough for potatoes...
  12. Low key was hoping for option A. Contraband makes everything more fun.
  13. Am I supposed to be not serious? I feel like either a) this is contraband, or b) there's a secret handshake and I don't know it - and everyone is making it really obvious that I don't know it...
  14. Since I am recently permitted/cleared for Discord, we should really get on that...lol.
  15. I tried to jump back into Horizon tonight. I really enjoyed the game, but had to put it on hold when Ace Combat 7 came out. Sadly, I don't think I'll be able to finish it - every time I've tried to come back to it, I get sick. It has to be something in how the camera is or the colors, but unfortunately it had to go back into the drawer.
  16. Careful for what you recommend - party capitol, USA is a drive a way.
  17. Congratulations - you are now a best-internet friend. I've been so damn hard pressed to find other Tales fans outside of the groups. The RPG genre looks to be healthy in 2020, so I'm fairly satisfied with how E3 turned out. I'm just groaning still with Final Fantasy - that's gonna be one of those "wait for the value pack" releases for sure.
  18. 72 F and cloudy here - and windy. I wish I had a hard drink - could use it. lol
  19. Today... ...was... ...exhausting. And totally EPIC.
  20. Arby's Potato Cakes are pretty damn good, ngl...
