      Just a quick journal.  I've pushed this game aside for a very long time, and for the life of me I don't know why.  I just picked it up again last week, and I've binged on it until now (about 2am and I have work tomorrow). 


      I'm seriously about to cry.  If ever there was an ending most perfect in a game, its Uncharted 4. Bar none, this game is a testament to how a story should be told, how actors should act, and how gaming mechanics should...mechanic.


      I know it is an old game and probably some of you here have played; but coming from a man who bought this game on day one just to get side tracked by games like Horizon, Far Cry, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Overwatch (DAMN YOU OVERWATCH!), and other games...this game is a gem.  If ever there was a reason to buy a PS4, this game alone would be worth it and I don't say this lightly at all. This scene I captured by accident, but it is one of the most stunning visuals I've ever seen, and really I'm not doing much at all in it.

      So I just got to see the Vlog from @burnie, and I really do appreciate the answer.  Thank you, Burnie, for addressing the community issue and putting our fears at ease.


      My only thing I want to add is I am more than humbled that you still remember the events of the Libyan revolution and I am completely...I don't know what's a stronger word than humbled, but I really am humbled beyond words that you guys still remember that. I definitely would have been astonished to just have the community question addressed, but to go so far as to add those extra details...thank you. You didn't have to, but thank you.

    • Ghost in the Shell review (No Spoilers)

      3 weeks ago

      madmanmoe

      So, I watched GitS the movie after rewatching GitS the animated movie, and my expectations were met: that is, overall the movie was a meh at best, and a blah at worst.  Here's the deal.


      1) ScarJo does not fit this role.  I'm sorry. I...I can't.  I just can't! This time, it's not because she's white playing a Japanese role, but because she just suuuuuuuuuuucked. Her attempts to walk like a soldier felt very forced. Her trying to act neutral and emotionless were cringy. And she can't action for jack. Her action is equivalent to my 200lbs ass dong gymnastics.  BUT! I do have to give the movie credit for explaining why she's white. They actually did a good job on that so not bad.

      MMjTN.gif


      2) The original GitS was mostly about the philosophy of the soul and existentialism. This movie was about "They lied to me! I Will have revenge!". Typical American style story telling.  Also, NO. Please, just stop with the whole ":::GASP:::: You killed innocent people!" shpeal! Just f-ing stop! It's like they'r trying to shove self righteousness down your throat.

      rhC63eb.gif


      3) It comes to no surprise that the movie did its own thing in terms of the story, but they did take some things from original anime movie and show.  So it should not come as a surprise that the scenes which came from the anime (which they did a fantastic job in doing btw) were the best parts of the movie.  Some were done shot-for-shot and biases aside, they really were phenomenal.  Because you can tell that those shots were NOT typical American shots. A lot of the movie is your typical American style shooting, but you get a fresh sensation on the original scenes of "wow, this is legit!". I can't explain it really other than you can tell which scenes are American and which are not.

      9AzYDxZ.gif


      4) There are problems with continuity.  There are plenty of "what the hell is going on?" moments in the movie, and the problem with that is because of GitS' inability to set its own identity. The movie is really more like the combination of GitS the Animated Movie, GitS Stand Alone Complex series, and whatever Pink Paste the American producers put together to mash it all together into a single movie. It's like having multiple personality disorder and you find yourself lost.

      giphy.gif


      5) Ok, this is NOT a spoiler, I don't care what you say, but it's not: Why the hell is everyone talking English EXCEPT FOR director Aramaki (which, by the way, in GitS the animated movie his name is Director Nakamura ((again, wtf?)) )?  Ok, look, I'm allllllllllllll good for selling the whole "this is Japan and the director is Japanese so it makes sense he talks Japanese". And honestly, I'm alright with that barely. But what's the point of everyone talking English and he's the only one talking Japanese? Even when they have a dialogue, one talks English the other Japanese.  I actually found myself wishing ScarJo would attempt some Japanese just to give her extra credit on the role, but no.  She's a shitty actress and God forbid she puts any real effort in her work. However, I really liked the actor who played the Director's role and he was a badass, so I'm actually happy they never forced him to try and speak English.

      ClaireOh.gif


      Overall, I give GitS a solid C. Its not the best and its a movie that suffers from not finding its own identity. When the movie was first announced with ScarJo as the Major, I was mad that they didn't pick a Japanese actress for the role.  Though, like I said, they did a good job convincing me why she's not Japanese, I am more mad now that ScarJo was NOT suited for the role.  


      These are the only two things that hurt the movie: ScarJo and being all over the place.  The action was giggling awesome.  The cinematography was really cool. They actually went out of their way to bring those Hellicopter-hawk-bird things. And nostalgia factor was strong in some scenes. Even if you didn't see the original GitS before, chances are you will like it and be amazed at some of the phenomenal scenes in there (though most of those were shot-for-shot copy of the anime).  You wont hate yourself for watching, so enjoy.

    • Broken Site

      Anyways, in all seriousness.  This has been a topic that's been floating around the ether for a very long time, and quite a number of you already know of my rants about this site as well.


      Well, let the rant continue as I'm made aware of more problems with this site, and this time it is regarding bots and ads. 


      It is hard enough as it is to keep the forums going nowadays.  Back in the haydays, the forums were buzzing and the community was flourishing.  Now, its barely kept alive with a select and very few that are still active and trying to keep the soul of RT community alive.  


      Aside from the horrid look, performance, and bugs in the site, the forums and other pages on the site are being further corrupted by bots and ads. A reliable Mod and friend of mine informed me that while they try to keep the forums and pages clean so everyone can enjoy the content, they're barely keeping pace due to their everyday responsibilities. Add to that that while the RT developers are aware of these issues, they are being redirected by RT to focus on other more important things like...you know...emojis and their video player.  


      So, how is this rant different from previous rants? Well, as I told my friend, sometimes the universe smiles at you and tosses you a bone. 


      Today, Burnie posted a journal asking for people to ask him questions for his next Vlog.  He will read the questions that have the most up votes and this is where I need your help.


      I've posted my question on his journal, and I would like to ask for anyone who has had issues with the site to go there and upvote my question.  It is not so that I get recognition, but to force Burnie and RT in general to publicly address these issues that we've all had for a very long time.  Should the question get lots of votes and Burnie decides to neglect it, then we know we have a major problem.


      Thanks in advance.

      I think everyone here in the community has at one time or another felt overwhelmed about life and their current situation.  I think that actually applies to pretty much a vast majority of people in general.  But one thing that people can agree on is that this is one of very few places where people can come and open up about their problems in a safe and supporting community.


      My dear friend @vatazes is one of those dear and loving people who likes to help people whenever she can, and she is going through some tough times right now.  However, she's not taking it laying down. I'm really amazed and in awe at just how tough this lady is, and I want to help however way I can. 


      I would appreciate it if you guys would drop by and read her latest post and give her your moral support. 


      Thanks in advance.

    • RTX, here I come

      madmanmoe

      So I bought tickets for RTX this year.  In all honesty, I thought about it pretty hard and was close to thinking against going, but when i read other people's journals and the OCC PLanning for RTX, I remembered just how amazing my last trip was.  It was seriously such a great experience, that I can't pass up the opportunity to go again and meet new people.


      Just like last time, I bought the tickets, but I'm still applying for the Media pass. I hope to get more footage, more interviews, more behind the scenes, and more access to stuff. Not sure if my being an independent journalist would hurt my chances or not, but I'm hopeful.


      Either way, I can't wait to meet you guys there. I hope to make new projects with @Ratatoskr and @LanceMowilos and the rest like we did last year.

      Ho boy...its been a while hasn't it? I'm sorry I haven't checked back in a while, but you know how it is.  Work and time and all that jazz.


      So, what have I been upto? welp...here's the quick and dirty.

      2O72jQj.jpg


      Went to Libya. What, you don't believe me? then here

      r6PDYCV.jpg


      Shit you not, this is day 1! But that's as much stereotype as you'll see get to see from this post.


      So yeah, what have I been doing there? Well, lots of rest 

      Wo3r63A.jpg


      Relaxation

      NwJ1GLq.jpg

      And hanging out with friends and family :::bet you can't find my Doppelgänger in this picture:::

      jLmYgX9.jpg


      Oh, and one more thing, probably gonna get a lot of confused looks around here about this, but I also got married!!!!!

      bFEYvLb.jpg


      tdbGYCo.jpg


      Well...sort of. This is probably as close as you can get to being married as you're gonna get without the actual wedding...but in essence its like a betrothal.


      This comes sort of an interesting time in my life. Its weird how after a toxic relationship you would swear off all affiliation with the opposite sex, until someone comes in and knocks out that big ol' iron wall you put up with just a tug of a loose thread.


      So, overall, I've had a pretty eventful trip. Work without vacation has made me pretty irritable and this vacation was exactly what I needed. I took a ton of pictures, most of which I can't put here, but I'll post some here and link you all to the rest.


      So, "how's Libya?" I hear you asking.  To be honest...its not something an outsider would like to visit anytime soon. I have to say, its pretty bad. 


      Libya is by no means any good at producing anything other than what gets pumped out of the ground, and even that's been mucked up. I can look at this from the outside and I can honestly paint a pretty abysmal picture for you, but in all honesty I've never been more relaxed and felt in place as I have while there. In almost every picture I took, there was always a beauty to the ugly.

      71z1AVJ.jpg


      LT6BsOp.jpg


      YCXgvNy.jpg


      wOe0jc0.jpg

      This one is not by me, but I think is just as good at conveying the idea


      Here's a sample of one of multiple 360 shots I took from there, you can find more at the link below this.


      I even visited the dear old corridor where we got shot at feb 20th 2011

      vr9CEQT.jpg

      Its hard to tell, but there are still some bullet holes left there from that day. I walked down it and it brought some surreal feelings of sadness and awe at all that happened that day. 


      I can't really say I did much other than just go around and meet with friends and even some old co-workers. It's all pretty personal really, but you can see the rest of the album here


      Oh, and I also went to Tunisia. Now I didn't do much there, but if you feel like having a trip to some exotic Arab place, then I would say Tunisia is a pretty decent place to go

      rDUEr4u.jpg


      Now, for the other question some of you might have out there, "Did the ban affect you?"


      Well, no, for two reasons.  One: I came on the 10th, so that was before admiral tiny-hands came into power. And two: I am US born. So I'm of the lucky ones.


      However, now I'm sort of a in a pickle. Being that I just got hitched and all, it is understandable that I would very much like to have my fiance here with me....however, Oompa Loompa put a bit of a hold on that plan when he issued the ban.


      I wasn't the only one affected either. My brother was offered to come back to the US by his company. We haven't all been together in one country for over 17 years, and this would have been a great chance for the family to finally at least be in the same city together for once. 


      Problem is though that he and his two daughters are find, except for his wife who is Libyan and, well, you know the deal. So now the company is looking to move him somewhere else for a while because even they know they can't trust the Loofa faced shit gibbon to stay sane too long.


      My sister can't bring her husband here either. Sis has to work, take care of her son and daughter, and has been working forever to work on his visa...no luck. Though his case has been going on since way before weave head came in to power, This is a system issue, I wont lie about it.


      So I'm obviously worried. Hence, I did whatever a so called "Liberal SJW cowboy" would do...I protested

      6yQhSGF.jpg


      Kn1wKvS.jpg


      x4LzC4J.jpg


      This picture isn't from me, but I love it anyways.

      RhLxyaP.jpg


      You all probably haven't caught up to the very subtle and carefully hidden disdain I have for ol'd Donald Duck--I know! I know! Shocking! Yes. It is true, I am of little opinion of tiny.


      Jokes aside, this fool is out of it. Not just because of this ban--which is kinda blowing up on his face--but just the shear audacity of this fool to be playing a misguided role of Sheriff is frightening...and we're not past month 1 yet either.


      In all honesty, I'm just wearing thin of fighting. Even on social media and elsewhere...its just too tiring, and I honestly believe that this is his plan. To just throw one BS after another after another after another and wear everyone down. It takes much more work to fight him than him to cause a ruccus. But I can't...I just can't sit quiet. I foresaw this monster from a million miles away, and I'm very sure that there are some out there who are still willing to defend him and come up with some cockamamie excuse for his actions; and if you are one of those who are willing to defend him, then don't bother defending him with me. There's zero chance either you or I will change our minds. What you see in front of you should be enough, but if that's not enough then there's nothing I can do to convince you otherwise.


      I still love coming here to RT. I still love seeing you guys talking about what you're doing and what's going on here and there. I love checking up and leaving a comment here once in a while, but I wont be very active myself. Just know that most of my time will be mainly focusing on fighting against this TAH-mah-duh hwun-DAN. :::oh yeah...i've been watching firefly::::


      So, forgive me all if I'm not very active here. I do stop by and say hi and check up, but that's just about as much time as I have lately to do and can't do more unfortunately.  I hope you all are doing well and having a good time. I'm still going to try and make RTX 2017 if I have the chance. Y'all take care and stay safe and thanks to everyone who did ask and check up. I honestly do appreciate it. Xie xie.

        I got back before the ban, but I am a US citizen so thankfully (hopefully) i wont be affected. still, it affected quite a lot of people.  


        I'll post a journal one day about what I've been upto. thanks for your concern :)

      Been awhile, and I hope all is well with you and the misses. I saw this news report today and I hope all is well with any friends and family in the area: www.live5news.com/story/23980331/militias-attac...

        Thanks! I think one of the best things is the mortgage payment is just a tad bit more than what we pay now in rent. And the house is in better shape than our current place, so the water and electric bills should be A LOT lower.

        We pre-ordered the Xbox One from Amazon and its a lot better than I thought it would be. I was a bit worried about the confusing reports from Microsoft itself, but seeing it in action... WOW. Other than getting used to how it works (a little different from the 360), its wonderful. We can control the TV with it, which is a perk when I'm busy and the kids are driving me nuts ;). It's made Skyping with the grandparents and other relatives a lot easier. The baby was in awe last night when we talked with her grandfather and she saw him on the TV. I think about the only thing I dislike about it, is the YouTube app. I liked that better on the 360. Easier to get around and organize things, find videos to watch, etc. On the One its just like the app they have for it on BluRay players, which stink. Unless you have it paired to a mobile device, its a worthless app.

        Have you been able to get one of the new consoles, or are you waiting/having to wait? have heard good stuff about the PS4 as well, but no games for it are catching my attention enough to want one.

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        3 years ago

        Ah! That's great. I know what u mean about the rent. It's devastating. I hope things work out for you.

        Were you able to get your hands on any of the new ps4 or Xbox One Consoles?

        Its ok. I know things have been busy for you :). But yeah, things are going great. We're moving from one end of the state to the other. Trading foothills for beaches :). We managed to buy a house and are looking forward to that journey, especially for the kids. No more renting!

        How are you doing by the way. I'm sorry I haven't been writing, but I saw there was some moving around for you lately. Things going OK?

        Big changes likes what Libya is going through, always come with growing pains. It will eventually work itself out, I just hope everyone stays safe until that happens. Keep positive (even if its difficult and it seems impossible).

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        3 years ago

        Hey Carrie. Thank you for your comment. Ya things aren't looking as good as I'd hoped there. It's really saddening. The government is absolutely useless right now and they have no control at all. My uncles are in Tripoli and they do nothing. I'm in Switzerland right now and honestly I want to change things there, but it's like everyone is grabbing at power and being absolutely selfish and power hungry. I hope something works out there.

        It's hard. I don't know to be honest.

        taco bell, midnight movies, mall closures at 10pm, chillouts downtown, etc...etc...etc...

        one thing i learned real quick about switzerland, they're unapologetically racist here. like, WOW racist. My wife is having a hard time as it is just with students and some professors with her Hijab (head scarf). its bizzarre. I mean, yeah there are some parts of the US that are backwards and racist...but those places are not really known for their higher education and multicultural collaboration. in swiss, its different. everyone is a (bill | mill)ionare with private jets and highly educated, yet unapologetically racist.

        ...i miss the US.

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        3 years ago

        Its green, its pretty nice and cool in terms of the weather compared to Libya. but the thing that ticks me off is the fact that everything closes by 6:30 and good luck finding anything open on Sundays. I miss the Texacos and the WalMarts and 24-hour fast food of the the US. these guys here are not much into the night life (except clubs and bars ofcourse).

      Hey madmanmoe!

      My name is Mike and I'm doing a research project for my internet communities pop culture class at Bowling Green State University. My project is obviously on the Rooster Teeth community. I was wondering if you would be able to do a quick interview about your experience in the community and your thoughts about it. If you can I would be extremely grateful.

      Thanks!

      Thought this would give you a laugh. More Russian hypocrisy over the situation in Syria.

      • hatmadder

        4 years ago

        basically Russia is saying that the UN moving out of Syria is a bad idea. When all the while they have blocked any real attempt at ending what seems like is turning into a genocide in Syria.

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        4 years ago

        hmm...the link doesn't seem to work. but i wouldn't be surprised anymore over what Russia does. I mean, just look at their current elections controversy. there's still so much soviet-style mentality thinking left in the kremlin its sick.

      Hey bro, hope things are going well for you and yours. I was wondering if you could give your perspective on a news piece that I just stumbled on, which I'm pretty sure is mostly the peanut butter brownie batter that comes out of a cow's anus. But still, it's worth reading to see if the Syrian government is doing a little bit of underhanded propoganda:

      www.gagnauga.is/index.php?Fl=Greinar&ID=215

      Like I said, I'm pretty sure that it's less factual than Westboro Baptist Church's Guide to America, but since you are a lot closer and a lot more involved in the situation over there than some dumbass from the west coast of the US, I would love to hear your thoughts.

      And on a more happy note, good luck to your athletes in the Games!! I'll of course root for American athletes, but will take pride in the accomplishments of any athlete, regardless of their nationality.

      • osiris32

        No kidding!! I've been watching the diving competitions, the Chinese are like machines. And that girl in the 4x100 medley, damn, I'm pretty sure I could have water skied behind her. But that's what I love about the Olympics, is watching people push themselves to the utmost limits of their abilities, a true test of what a human being is capable of.

        And thanks for your insight, I just wanted a bit of confirmation that this was, in fact, a load of fetid dingo's kidneys.

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        4 years ago

        Wooooow! Same old tape, same track, even the same crummy recording.

        You know its a huge load of crap when they start tacking in everybody as the perps. Alqaeda is in cahoots with Obama while their buddy Sharon is pouring them wine from their private stash funded from how much money they're getting from the wealth of oil Syria has. Give me a break.

        Finally, Syria has no worthwhile reserves to speak of to cause any of this. Their people are screaming and crying for help, asking "would you have helped if we had oil?"

        The only real terrorist there are Bashar and his goons. I personally know people affected by his reign. I personally see Syria refugees here in libya. They all concur that the monster must be removed. That soul-less punk in the interview will get his just deserve one way or another.

        On the lighter note, thank you for your kind wishes. It was great to see the new flag instead of that trashy green rag. Good luck to your teams as well, China is giving you guys a run for your money this year.
