I'm really hoping that they do, but I'm seriously debating waiting in line. The list of games is SOOOOOO good

I'm sad to see this thread died two years ago apparently. Lets see if we can revive it.

So, lets see if we can revive it. I'll start with just one for now.

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Read this last year. I think it's being turned into a movie too, which makes sense. This is a really intelligent book, but also a breeze to read. The basic premise is this: A man who used to work in as a scientist who now teaches, his artist wife and their son live out a perfectly satisfying life, but his former colleague is winning an award for a scientific breakthrough. On a stroll at night wondering what his life could have been, the man is kidnapped and wakes up in a place he doesn't recognize, but where everyone thinks he's a single man who's been forging scientific breakthroughs, including a big one that allows for travel to parallel realities.

I don't want to spoil too much, but a book that could simply be a journey through endless possibilities delivers that and so much more, with a plot development towards the end that you won't see coming that makes perfect sense.

Highly recommend.

See, unfortunately I jumped off the Bucs bandwagon because of Jameis, otherwise I'd be very excited for Tampa this season.

Instead, I get to look forward to drinking heavily during Jets games.

I'm still rocking 2016. I'd want to carry my RTTS guys over, and from what I understand if I did that I'd lose most of the scripted stuff that they added in 17.

My RF got drafted by the Mariners which, considering about a year after I got the game I ended up moving to Seattle, is pretty amusing.

My closing pitcher (I like to play quick games) got drafted by the Diamondbacks. Oddly, he got moved up to Triple A, was doing great, and got bumped down to AA before the end of the first season. My RF is a starter on the Mariners despite his numbers being a bit low.

I finally watched Breaking Bad and Mad Men within the past year. Worthy of all the acclaim.

Now we're watching Better Call Saul.

If you want something you can stream, Black Mirror on Netflix is amazing. Also, if you missed it during it's first season, Westworld on HBO is great.

Now, I know what you're thinking: his name is Bucfever but he has a Jets logo.

I have renounced by Buccaneers fandom until Jameis Winston is gone. That being said, it doesn't look like that'll be anytime soon, so I've fallen on my brother's and dad's Jets fandom in the meantime.

Also I live in Seattle now.

Sup fellas? Been some time.
