Thread Trudeau announces ban of 1,500 models and variants of military-grade assault weapons
Well put! I'm originally from Germany and owning guns is very similar there (or felt similar). Talked to a german hunter and the amount of money and work it takes to get that license is crazy. They also HAVE to shoot silenced. Because a silencer is just a tool to make their work less annoying. And not a crazy safety thread like it would be in the US. That connection of owning guns = freedom (love for the country, Jesus) is one of the shittiest things. Those people won't shut up about the "pussyfication" of the world while also clinging to their military guns in terror. The silliest thing of a "prepper" mentality. The fact that they want to build a bunker instead of helping make the village work better.

Giving "THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO" tutorials even for bosses is so lame. This game wants to be so hardcore and then does something hand holding and belittling like that. At least let me die a couple of times trying to figure it out OR making it something in the codex I can look up.

Thread DOOM Eternal |OT| Hell's Bells
I'm playing on Nightmare, having a good time and I still agree with you. In some ways its a bit like what happened with Bloodborne/Sekiro or even Dark Souls 2 where the designers saw how people were playing the game, did not like it and actively build traps/removed options in order to force you into one way of approaching the combat. Hugo Martin talked about how much they hated people just using the SuperShotgun, not moving enough. So this game is a total answer to that way of playing. The rest of the total overflow of unlocks and systems is probably also a fault of the publisher wanting a battle pass. You need XP if you want to keep people engaged! Keep them coming back!

This is the thing that gets me the most. They could not even have a small retreat at some lake where all three directors have a chat and come up with some beats for the overall arch. Their production pipeline was so crazy from the start that no one had the time to breath or think and it all shows in this last film.

Great main event and not much more in terms of storylines. Hoping for the upset personally but I don't think Khabib is old enough yet for that.

Well... just look at all the 40 something MMA dudes out there. They fight until they "dont have it anymore" - They lose. - They don't want to go out like that though. So they keep fighting. - Maybe they win again. "OH SHIT I AM WINNING! LETS GET THIS BITCH GOING!" - And then lose again etc. GSP is pretty much the only guy that was on top and (so far) was able to do it right. I thought DC, with his smarts AND his plan to retire for his birthday could be another guy. DC is also one of the only ones that has legit skills as a host. So as a fan, you want to see the perfect ending. And beating Stipe a second time / getting KO'd by him is not the one. And I would also bet that he would return after a loss.

I'm actually thinking the same, but mostly because of the parry system. I was able to beat everything thus far (all of the Souls/BB games) but mostly without ever learning how to parry. This first boss is kinda made for parries, the normal smashing just takes too long and she has 3 health bars. And it makes sense, BB was a direct answer to the Shield and Hide play style that Miyazaki was not a fan of, so this is taking it even more to another extreme.

Most shows are 11min and even when its 22, you split that up. This one they wanted us to do everything alone which is great and really daunting because of the pressure and work load (it takes 2months to board one episode). It's also not that common to have a TV show that wants to be this cinematic. As a board artist, you have to be very careful about shots and animation for budget reasons normally. This one, they just wanted to tell the best story. I boarded episode 5 and 8. Five was really tough because its set in one room. Really hard to figure out the angles and cutting.

I always missed the one before for a couple of weeks and then can not imagine my life without the new purchase.

Believe me, that would make things easier. I bought it while Photoshop would be an ongoing cost. I'm going to try but it would require me to also switch on my Desktop, Clip Studio can not export (or import without rasterizing) Text layers when working with PSD. Photoshop is also not as smooth as I thought, a couple of the more interesting brushes are in slow motion now. Sorry for the ramble, I'm having some serious pains over the "keep or not keep" issue.

Had a day with the Galaxy Book so far, most of it spend updating and updating and updating some more. I'm not sure I'm going to keep it. I'm so used to my work flow, its tougher then expected to switch to something smaller. It does not help that my old PS version does not work and the thing gets H O T. And windows 10 in tabbed mode seems like trash. Any tips? Are there settings I should use? I'm going to get an adapter today to see if I work better with a keyboard. I have no clue how you can use Photoshop/anything with just a stylus.

Yeah, Canadian. And it does not really have to be a powerhouse, Storyboard is vector based and the dpi is always 72. Max I work in PS is 300Dpi.

Hey , I know I asked this before but I finally got the founds ready and wanted to make sure I"m not overlooking something: - I know the IPAD Pro is pretty much what I want in terms of feel and portability (the 12inch probably) BUT - I'm still bummed that my main working software (Storyboard Pro) only runs on Win or real Mac I could to thumbnails on the ipad but not even having the option to "really" work on it is a bit lame. I have a budget of around 1500ish, if the Cintiq Studios would be cheaper I'd go with that but they are 2,200 Canadian Dollars. Is there any windows alternative that I'm overlooking? I know you get this stuff a lot but I'm torn apart here between what would be sexy (ipad) and what would make more sense (a windows thing)

It's bothering me too, especially if I have to ride a wagon. BUT I know that in my case it mostly comes from not having as much time as I want to play.

I was helping my professors with Portfolio review one year (we help them sort stuff and give them our opinion) and the amount of bad anime (also bad street art) was staggering. But of course, that could have been bad anything that is trending. Its just really tough to see who the applicant "is" when you are just copying someone else's shortcut of a human. A huge part of these review meetings was also "whats the current THING". Whatever the thing was, if your stuff was doing IT and it was not excellent, the Profs were so tired of seeing it that your chances were nearly zero.

Lower prices for S1 and S2 would make me buy the S3 pass. Same reason they just gave everyone those 20 Operators, new players are not having as much fun with less options. I can not play a lot so having a shortcut that I can pay for is fine with me.

As someone new to the game, watching "casual" streamers play has helped me a lot. Stuff like "kill holes" and smarter ways of droning in the beginning. This is a really hard game to pick up, the maps are still a total mess to me and I get killed from behind like a dumb dumb sometimes.

Stick with 5 and ramp the weight up every time. (for the main lifts, the other stuff you do on the side can be 8 to 12 or whatever you can do) It will get heavy and taxing in a short time depending on your fitness level / age / rest.

Hehe, thanks for your thoughts! I took my template from here: I do the "BBB but less boring" meaning I don't do 5x10 with the main lift but with another one (so deadlift, bench or press). I felt that doing only one top set was not enough, so I added 2 more. That did not feel enough so I added FSL. And then BBB do get some lighter volume on a different lift in. All that said, I think now that the lifts are hitting two plates, I might have to step down a bit. I'm also going to re-read Wendler's book. It has been a while and I never looked at the new one (5/3/1 Forever) Thanks Buran, I'm going to go back here a back and read what everyone is doing. You are happy with 5/3/1?

I agree partly but I also think Woodley was in some of the worst fights that I can remember (against Rory especially). So I won't fall head over heels because he actually starched someone. If he has two or three more defenses that are fun to watch, THEN I'll reconsider. MMA is always about "what have you done in the last 4seconds" and everything gets re-written to fit that new narrative. If his last fight would have been a five round sparring match, Schaub would be lamenting his ability to pull the trigger.
