  1. Today
  2. I played a little bit this morning. It is pretty fun, just like I remember the old ones. It is free forever on Uplay until April 25th because of the ND fire. You just have to process it for free and the game is yours forever. The game has gained quite a bit of notoriety because it painstakingly scans and recreates authentic real-world environments for you to run around and kill people in, like the cathedral that just burned. The co-op is supposed to be pretty fun as well I will be playing some tonight.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Compare that with Charlie Sheen who reportedly made $1.8M per episode of Two and a Half Men. No wonder he was always smirking.

  6. I dunno about you, but I wouldn't get tired of making the cash they're getting for this show. Some of the main cast is pulling in 100k-500k per episode!
  7. I take frequent, yet short breaks from competitive formats where I have a lot of time, money, and pride invested in the outcome of every game and borrow decks from friends to play casually for a while. I also try to focus more on trading and judging tournaments versus forcing myself to sit through tournaments. When I play at all, it's mostly cube drafts and commander, some booster draft or sealed deck, and less modern or standard. When I'm ready to jump back into constructed formats, I pick up a couple of my pet decks that consistently perform well and jam a bunch of warm-up matches with a couple friends in a casual environment (at someone's house or at the shop, but not in a tournament). We play a lot of face up games where both players have full knowledge of what's going on in the games and talk through plays to practice identifying and making the proper calls in situations. This helps to rebuild mechanical skills and confidence, along with a familiarity with any changes to the metagame and individual card choices in popular decks, all in comfortable settings to help facilitate learning. If there's a solid enough new deck in a format, I'll borrow or trade/buy into that deck to shake things up for myself and broaden my range a little. Worst case scenario, I relist the deck for sale after learning the strengths and disadvantages of the deck, and I'm out a little time (maybe a little cash if I wait too long to move the cards), but I've gained some firsthand experience and know what I need to change in my own decks and play patterns. Usually by the time a new set comes out I'm ready to at least draft a few times, and shortly after the new set there are shifts in the constructed formats that revive some interest for me. I hope this can be of some help to you as well.
  8. Last week
  9. In terms of taking their time to cover the material, somewhere between what they're currently doing, and the Hobbit would have been good.
  10. Dammit. I was trying to make a special effort to follow your rules about Lego, I forgot 1 god damn time and here you are.
  11. Its making money for everyone, right? So why not take the time and do it right. Unless the folks involved are just sick of doing it. Lot of them have gotten big time now.
  12. No. You can only do that if you buy LEGO.
  13. I don't either. With all its popularity, why not take more time with it?
  14. The last season could have been 4 seasons. Remember, only 5 episodes left
  15. Now I can buy Lego and Stick it to the MAN at the same time.
  16. After being a little burnt out on MTG, in early January I decided to take a break from the game. I don't even think I was burnt out on MTG, it was more being burnt out on the negativity in the "twitter mtg community" and some YouTubers (none of you reading this, of course). Not sure why I allowed it to get to me so much, but it just kinda wore me out. On New Years Day I played a game and decided to take a few week break. Recharge. Here we are in mid April and I haven't had the desire to pick up my cards to play or even sort them. I have lots of cards to sort. It even got the point recently that I considered following the path of @MTGZuby selling my collection, keeping only a few nostalgia sets and my decks. My wife stopped me from doing that. I think everyone has these periods of time that they take a little breather, but this is by far the longest break I've had. When you all are in a funk, how do you get out of it?
  17. They are identical in every way. Every piece is a direct copy of the original Lego piece (sans logo). They are bagged in precisely the same way as the Lego equivalents are bagged. They have to be, because they use Lego's own instructions, which tell you which bag number to open.
  18. Do these happen to fit with regular Lego? Looks fantastic.
  19. Lepin are a Chinese company who make fake Lego, based on existing Lego sets. I have been reading about Lepin for a while. In all honesty, having used fake lego on very small builds several times, i considered them a high risk investment. But after reading a couple of half decent reviews, i decided to give them a go. I ended up buying the Larger version of the Hogwarts castle by Lepin, from a Spanish outlet. It cost £120, and the Lego version is £350. So just over 1/3 cost. Being distributed from Spain, i didn't face any import duties. It arrived in about 2 weeks, in a plain cardboard box. Anyone expecting Lego style packaging would have been rather shocked. Photo one shows how it presented, around 100 bags in a shabby brown cardboard box. So i was a little nervous. Not wanting to sort through 100 bags every time i needed a new one, i decided to sort them out into sets and store them grouped into sets of 5 in ziplock bags. This has worked very well. The very first thing you have to do in the instructions is to build 1 minifigure, which has a beard and hair. The hair they include is the wrong style (it's very different to the picture), and too big to allow both the beard and hair to fit the head at the same time. Let's just say that i was now very worried about the future for this set. Generally speaking, the plastic is good quality and very good colour. I would say around the same quality and colour as lego - if it weren't for the branding, i doubt i could tell the difference visually. In using Lepin, I would say it is ever so slightly tougher, with less give than Lego. Pieces fit slightly tighter and, after a few hours use, I feel it in my hands. However, i would say this is no bad thing. Possibly one piece in every few hundred has trace edges from the moulding process, but these are very slight and fragile, and no issue to remove. About 3 of the bags are unnumbered. So i am waiting to find out where they belong. They used the right numbering on the bags, but substituted the letter "q" for the number "9" on about 15 bags. That took me a while to figure out. Cutting to where i am now: I am on bag set 39 of 48, so around 5000 pieces out of 6020 in, and every one of the pieces, except 1 coloured stud, has been there. But it hasn't all been plain sailing. After building the core of the main tower, you need to build and apply 6 sheets of cladding to the outside. These ended up slightly shorter than the tower, but not short enough to fit on the next stud down. I laboured with this for around 4 hours, often ending up with the tower in pieces. I ended up having to remove a single layer of Lego from the height of the core of the tower, and now the cladding is slightly longer, bows slightly and doesn't fit right - it would likely collapse with a knock. I believe this points to the manufacturing tolerances inherent with Lupin, and never seen on Lego in my experiences. But, even with all of that, i would accept it for a saving of £230. Overall, my main intentions going forward were to buy the Super Star Destroyer, but i wanted a test set first. At this point, i would have to say that i have no intention of buying Lego for any expensive sets. It's just not worth 3 times the price. I just wish i had bought the Lepin Falcon 18 months ago, and saved myself £400. Unboxing - note the beautiful graphics on the main box... So Lepin as a brand and logo, is banned in the UK. Note the stickers over the Lepin logo on the instruction manuals. By the way, the instruction in the manuals are identical to Lego. Let's just say it; they are Lego's instructions. The Great hall, The Chamber of Secrets and the changing staircases. Note the flying Dementors. If you zoom in on the last photo and look at the centre of the main tower, you can notice the bulge. This is about half the model constructed so far.
  20. Ohh! You've just reminded me.
  21. ... and I bet you they could tell you exactly which iteration of the Millennium Falcon that they built.
  22. With Tax Day just having passed us by, we figured there's no better time to talk about a classic standby in other formats: Death and Taxes. What would some of the classic pieces of this deck look like if they were shifted to common? It might have been a pipe dream once upon a time, but with uncommon planeswalkers, who knows what the future could hold?

  23. Exactly. I haven't seen any old men with disposable income posting and bragging about building their new Lego Dreadnought. Those nerds stick to the old school ships.
  24. He blew up the droid ship in his own pseudo Death Star run! He was 9 with a 14-year-old girlfriend murdering at least 35 people on a droid control ship. Dude was a playa. Do you know why Anakin killed all the younglings? He didn't want Padme to find someone new.
  25. The answer to every question is "money"
  26. Luke did, but I don't recall Anakin (pre-Vader) doing so. Undoubtedly you meant Anakin used those skills to (unsucessfully) defend against a Deathstar run (thanks to Han's interference). /nerd
  27. And he used those skills to pull off a Deathstar run! haha But yeah.
