    Spider-Man: Far From Home (Post-release)

    I loved the movie. Easily in the top MCU or comic movies ever. There's a lot of super smart stuff going on in there. I didn't think of it till after talking with friends but when Peter is first talking with "Fury" and mentions Captain Marvel in the list of other heros who could help, Fury says...

    Battletech has a pretty decent mod community and I know they have some to make the AI smarter, doing retreats, ejects, etc I haven't messed with any myself, but one of the big ones is RogueTech. its a pretty massive overhaul, tweaks a lot of the game variables like sight/weapon ranges, adds in...

    1983 debate: “Star Wars is brutalizing children .... making children dumber ...”

    it is kind of interesting that all his points are the exact criticisms of the prequels

    I build my current PC with a liquid cpu cooler and just last year (about 4-5 year mark) it also died. from what I can tell, they just don't last as long as fans. My cpu survived well enough and I just bought another one to toss on it and its running great, though I do now keep a temperature...

    I havent played the Battlefield games since BF3, but I'd heard they had really gone downhill. Sorta jumped on the CoD model of pumping out less than stellar games real fast to cash grab. Of the ones on your list, Battletech is great, and the new Assassins Creeds are damn good. I'd never really...

    yea i think the drone racing stuff is basically just a static forward camera/screen. still looks fun as hell, looks like you need insane reflexes

    From what I've read the skulls aren't a perfect indicator, when the mission gets generated it can be off in either direction by at least half a skull by design. It can suck in the other direction too, spend time/money to travel out to a system, take the mission, negotiate for a lot of salvage...

    Pilot injuries were a bit easier initially before one of the first big patches, when all mechs had the same stability meter. But even now, mid game it isn't too difficult to leg for knockdown and 1 injury, pop a side torso while they were down for a second, then either focus the other side torso...

    Re-make of "Dune"

    honestly, I'd be completely fine with Piter being played by Brad Dourif again. Or if the age matters too much, move him over to Thufir Hawat

    Yea, the early game is really rough on the finances. You'll be 2 weeks from bankrupt a lot. Just focus on trying to salvage efficiently and build mechs to sell and it gets better. Really fun game though

    Lol yea, Gorn is a fun one. They've added a lot more stuff in it since I last played

    With Called Shot Mastery and the right weapons, headshots are still worth going for. AC10 with bonus damage is enough to take it out in 1 shot. Even with the balance patch they did a while back to morale/precision shot, its worth trying for depending on the situation. Especially once you get to...

    Oh yea, Battletech is great. haven't beat it yet, just been flying around doing contract after contract for money and salvage to build more toys. Got a pretty solid lance of Highlander with gauss/2xPPC, Highlander with 4xLRM15, Stalker with 5xLargeLaser, 4th slot I change out depending on the...
