*Micah_Did_Nothing_Wrong has entered the chat*


No no no, I kid, I kid.

So was he a plant by the Pinkertons from the get go?
And if so, why allow him to engage in the same activities as Dutch?o

For the record, I quite often liked Micah's commentary...dont shoot me

Yeah, he was funny right up to the point he became a gosh darned traitor!

No, I think Micah got picked up by the Pinkertons after Blackwater. He gets separated from the group, and then winds up in a jail in Strawberry. I think the Pinkertons took him into custody in Blackwater, and planted him in that jail on purpose (because he's not there during the train robbery, I don't think). Dutch doesn't really do anything too crazy until the Valentine bank robbery (which I think Micah was there for, or maybe he wasn't?) Other stuff is just petty revenge type things. But Michah was definitely back with the group when they planned the St Denis heist, and that obviously went horribly, which would further point to Micah being a rat.

holy shit, co-op RTTS would get me to buy the next edition IMMEDIATELY. I know my brother would too.

And yeah, online, some of the items are locked until you reach a certain level. I think I just have 2 more to go, but it's such a grind to get the XP.

I really wish we could play the online together, but there's just so little to do and I still haven't leveled up enough to even be ALLOWED to buy a fishing rod. I suppose we could run some missions and at least try to unlock the fishing pole and then it'd be fun to hop on from time to time, hunt, fish, and play some cards. Or I suppose do actual missions from time to time, but those damn gold pieces.

Gut feeling tells me he's kidding, but these are strange times so...

And I really need to get back to COD but since I'm one of those dudes that won't jump into online play until I complete the story it might be awhile lol.

I finally downloaded that COD WWII, looking forward to trying out the story on that. Battlefront II is absolutely about to be a thing next month, even though they stopped supporting it, apparently the game became great since it's rough launch.

Finally a thread I can post in lol , Its a fun game but  I am playing warzone currently but I might jump back on if you need a third some night.

Was actually looking for your input in a few other threads like RDR2 ;-)

I hear ya and its tempting but I feel that my input can upset others especially in RDR2 ;)

ESPECIALLY in RDR2? I am exceedingly curious now about this, hahaha

I feel like RDR2 turned in to my own personal video game life blog lol

Fair, but I basically went around as a serial killer for a while wearing a dead pig's face, so, outside of "I found the KKK meeting and tried to join them," not really sure anyone can be judged for their RDR2 play, hahhaha

As I said: this is a new Confederacy. These fuckers are salivating at the mouth to murder their fellow citizens AND constituents, no less.









Meanwhile, that whole ANTIFA is a terrorist organization thing? Yeah, first off, ANTIFA is not a thing. There is no ANTIFA. It's not a group. There's no leader. There is no such thing. But, thanks to Trump's dubious executive order declaring them as such, the DOJ can now be weaponized against anyone seen protesting, even peacefully, at these rallies to identify and target them. Meanwhile, the KKK, Proud Boys, 3%ers, Vanguard America and more white supremacist orgs continue to not be labelled as such. Man, I wonder why.....

Anyone play?

So, it's one of those Battle Royale type games. One of the major differences between this and say, Fortnite is there's no building in this, and you play either in duos or in trios, never solo.

Pairing up with randoms, like any online multiplayer game, is hit or miss, but the game actually has an awesome communication system built into it via pings that does help to keep things on track.

I tried it initially way back when it first released, wasn't the biggest fan. Then I became FULLY addicted to For Honor for about a year and a half, haha. Anyways, I digress.

Lately, a buddy of mine (former coworker) had been trying to get me to play, and a current co-worker who Twitch streams has been picking it up as well, so I decided to give it another chance. The game is vastly improved by having people to play with, and between those two guys, my former manager who also plays, and my brother and another buddy back home, I'm suddenly getting bombarded with requests to play, haha.

Been having a lot of fun learning the ins and outs (like I did with For Honor), but yeah, it's nice not queuing into matches with randoms all the time instead of actual friends (....like For Honor).

TL;DR - we should play Apex together, it finally freed me from my For Honor addiction. Also the game is completely free, it has microtransactions but they're either A) character unlocks, which, fine, I'll allow it and admittedly already spent money on enough in-game credit to unlock all the characters; or B) cosmetics, which, I actually spent way too much money on in For Honor, but that was an up-close melee game, so the customization was more noticeable and worthwhile, whereas this is mostly ranged shooting so you may never even see your enemy close up, thus they may never even see you, so why waste my money, you know?

Oh shoot, didn't even realize Doctor Who was part of it. Hope they have the latest season, started watching on BBC but lost that channel when Vue died and I switched to Hulu.


Edit: they don't :(

Yeah, I'm in a good spot. I signed up for HBO Max, I've been on the free Disney+ trial and I'm thinking of dropping that (hoping my brother will pick it up for his girls and I can leech off him, admittedly, but I honestly never really use it) and have Netflix through the fiancee's dad. I switched to Hulu for live TV when PS Vue died, so I've got all the Hulu stuff.

And yeah, not having any contracts is a huge plus, even with all the nickel and diming. Funnily enough, since I have Comcast internet (and internet only with them), apparently you get an included subscription (no extra charge) to that new NBC Peacock streaming service. My buddy who I used to work with at the Comcast store let me know, and just sent me the stuff to set it up, which is great, because that means I won't have to buy The Office when it leaves Netflix, hahaha

Signed up for HBO Max, mainly for the Studio Ghibli movies (although the curated anime selection from Crunchyroll is also a reason). Sucks it doesn't work on Fire Stick yet, and for those with Roku apparently it's also not compatible yet. Works fine on PS4 and my phone, though.

Basically takes the place of HBO Now, with all of the added content of Max.

I can get that. My fiancee absolutely hated it, for basically similar reasons, although I was anticipating her disliking it for multiple reasons.

Most of what I read online was it was a mile-a-minute, high intensity, high anxiety inducing movie that "attacks your senses" type of thing, mostly via volume. Probably best seen in, I THINK, when KG's guys are stuck in the security door, and people are shouting, I think there's a phone ringing, just all kinds of things going on. My fiancee haaaaaaaated that aspect of it. I loved it, it was pure chaos and really evoked, cinematically, just how overwhelmed and in over his head this guy is.

And I don't disagree on Julia being more interesting than Howard! There's a great debate about this movie over whether Julia is the real main character of the story, or if perhaps she took the biggest gamble of all by gambling on Howard (whether it was always for the money or actually for love). There's multiple addictions afflicting several characters (KG too). I love how the banter touches on that, the thin line between addiction, obsession and determination (determination is mostly KG, as evidenced by him saying "It's just me and the rock," after Howard's big speech to him earlier in the movie).

There's just so much going on to break down under the surface, I could watch this movie for days and still find new and interesting things to discuss. But, hey, that's why I like movies. Everyone gets something a little different out of them, that's WHY they're interesting.

As regard to the 50's, "some bigotry" is kind.

Oh, mind you, I'm not saying there was "some bigotry" in the 50s in that statement. There was much. I'm speaking more for why people have that nostalgic feel for "the way things were." I think people did feel safer then, but the world has since gotten larger, louder, and faster moving. I imagine though, for many people with racist inclinations, part of that safe feeling was the spoken and unspoken oppression of minorities. But for others, it was just the 50s, I'd think.
