I don't understand what use a bat wrapped in barbed wire is against the kind of zombies in Walking Dead. They crawl around as mummified husks. What is a few lacerations going to do?

I already have a home gym in the room next door. Treadmill, weight machine, and a bunch of other stuff. I was working out a lot over the summer in anticipation of cop stuff.

That is why. Though to do that sort of damage to a head you would probably break the bat.

People were really upset about that whole scene. The Asian guy was a fan favorite since Asian men don't have representation in blah blah blah. The exact thing happened in the comics though. I only watched bits and parts of the first three seasons and don't plan to watch anymore. The bat man comes into the story the 5th season anyway.

It's weird seeing people get attached to zombie or game of thrones characters like some afternoon soap opera. I think there are more tasteful settings for that than apocalyptic ultra-violence, but let people enjoy things I guess.

The Asian guy was notable as being a really sweet and caring guy. Probably the nicest character on the show. I can see people getting attached to him. I think extreme situations like the apocalypses can bring out the best and the worst in people. Some people rise to the occasion and some people retreat.

Game of Thrones is a bit more complicated since there were no real good characters on the show considering the inability of a few noble families to get along dragged hundreds of thousands if not more average people into a war they had no stake in. I can see people getting attached to Dany  since even though she was entitled and could be a violent bitch, in the early parts of the story she did try to do right by innocent people. The writers did her character dirty.

Speaking of Game of Thrones, it is really amazing how fast that show went from an iconic piece of television to a barely acknowledged or remembered thing. The producers rushing the last two seasons out of the door to move onto a Star Wars project is probably one of the biggest blunders in Hollywood history considering both GoT producers ended up getting fired from the Star Wars project since Disney didn't need their negative energy piling on top of the other stewing nerd rage The Last Jedi produced. HBO apparently was willing to give the writers as many seasons as they wanted since the DVD/BluRay sales alone probably covered yearly production cost. Billions of dollars were lost due to the writers screwing up the IP.

Book fans I've talked to told me the show lost them when it started significantly diverging. I'm not sure when exactly that happened, though. Dany started off as almost fanfic flawless, then became another deranged noble like the others are depicted as. I guess she fit better into the grand scheme of things that way. It's too bad the popsicle king didn't win and then reveal his true agenda of democratic revolution.

So is that just a wooden bat with barbed wire around it? The cheapskate in me wonders why you couldn't make your own for < $70?

I think season 5 was where the show started the divergence. Season  7 and 8 is where it all fell apart. I don't think the writers were totally awful when they started their divergence or their overall screen adaptation of the source material. Reading the book wiki and seeing what was cut...I think they made a lot of good choices is regards to tightening up the story. They are probably very talented at adapting story which is too bad since their failure to develop original work is what they will be remembered for.

Oh well it's all just fiction anyway. I have forgotten a tremendous amount of Star Wars lore already and feel no worse off for it. I can still remember a lot of the BF2 Top 10 though which is really annoying. F1r3Starter, -RD- Volx, THE#LORD#OF#WEED, blueassault, |SI|BlackJesus,.. christ make it stop.

Because you can't just buy one baseball bat worth of barbed wire. You have to buy it in a spindle. And I don't need a spindle of barbed wire...or do I?

Stats aside, you weren't a real BF2er until you could fly a jet through the tube on that one map, upside-down.

I understand wanting to be close to your parents, sure. My mom and I co-own condo her and my deadbeat brother live in, and I own my own too. Have you ever asked your parents to sell you their house? There are numerous arrangements you could make if you wanted to.

That was the one. One of my preferred maps, and I think it gave most types of players something to do.

I am going to inherit a house from my childless godmother in Tampa. So I will be a homeowner someday. My parent's house was valued at over $400,000 and property values in my town is spiking due to new buildings being built all over the town. So I could neither afford to buy their house and it wouldn't be a good idea to sell it in the near future anyway. My young sister is a nurse and talks about my parents selling the house to her since she could afford it. She said when she buys the house she is going to evict me. She is serious about that I feel.

Shouldn't have pulled on her pigtails when she was a little kid.

I killed a T-90 going across the top of the dam from a flying Blackhawk with a SMAW right in the ass and that is one of my most cinematic video achievements.

Battlefield 2 was great. If EA ever releases a remaster of it I would even buy one of those obnoxious $200 bundles were they give you a $5 nylon bag with the words Battlefield 2 on it just to show my appreciation. I would even donate to the BF2s server. I am that committed to this game.

I just don't think the game has aged well enough for something like that. They'd have to clean up the net code too much to make it worthwhile imo.

The modern Battlefield engine is actually pretty good. Basically if you just extricate the leveling, loot boxes, and cosmetics from BF4 and put some 2005 skins on it then you are mostly in business.

BF5 was terrible in general. I enjoyed BF4 though I preferred Insurgency by like 10 to 1. I never played BF1 but it looks dire.

After the disappointment of BF3 I haven’t played a new once since. Presently I’m working on a BF2 single player mini mod. There’s a small chance I’ll upload it one day for you all to enjoy.
