My Gunpla collection is growing. Think it's time I invest in a airbrush and start custom painting. Really loving this hobby.

@watercrack445: I remember when I was 11 years old, I actually eat an Alligator, it basically taste like Chicken :)

wow, amazing! (I will assume gator meat will have the same textures and everything as a chicken.)

Back then, the Gator was really good, the meat itself was just an ordinary anime meet between Beef & Chicken breast like.

@lundy86_4: I am super doper late on that PC thread. I thought about Prebuild PC's, but at the same time, I just don't have the money nor time to pick out the best PC, and plus, I just find it that using my Xbox One X is by far the best all in one gaming device and other features to go with it.

She's really a fan of the Xbox family, Loli just happens to play that is simple to plug it in and play.

If only she stops stalking me!

You did introduce me to this site awhile back after all, you are my to-go-guide around this place.

By the way, I see you are playing Monster Girl Quest, how is it?

Oh him, he's on Discord. As some of the active decent users here in System Wars & myself. Charizard1605 has been gone over a year and he's on hiatus, but he's kinda active in Discord.

System Wars itself sunk so badly over the years, we lost a lot of good decent posters, too many Xbox One bash threads were all fun and games, they all played out and remaking the threads just got so bad here. When Charizard1605 left System Wars, this place fell apart without him cause he was the one making good threads. I still come to System Wars because Gamespot is the only gaming site I call home here, so I ain't going anywhere. But it's pretty damn close for me to call it quits though.

The idea of "Hide and Q" is great, superb even, but it should have been a longer elongated episode to let it sink it incrementally. As a one parter it rushes the episodes and completely ruins the point. Feels artificial.

Most of the first season of TNG sucks. Not Discovery bad, nothing is. Even Enterprise is better, and that's the suckyest of sucks.

(Respect to Conan for visuals, the only good thing)

What team crashed and burned?

I was referring to my team in the NRL not NFL lol.

How do you feel of Rugby players trying out American Football?

Is there any currently playing in the NFL? I think there are former AFL (shit sport) players playing.

Hey if they can make it then good for them as I read somewhere the punters (which is the position most AFL players end up) get like a minimum million dollars a year to do hardly anything lol.

Jordan Mailata, He's playing with the Philadelphia Eagles as an Offensive Tackle. Also, Michael Dickson, who's a punter for the Seattle Seahawks, who did the dropkick ball.

I remember that, the American sports press went nuts over it which surprises me, because you would think that sports commentators would watch sports from around the world, but I guess not lol.

Ok, I'm convinced. Without a doubt Marvel is intentionally trying to get these shows off Netflix. Jessica Jones season 3 is already done being filmed, but that was months ago. I see it being announced canceled after Daredevil and Punisher.

I think all parties want to part ways, but aren't trying to ruin business for each other. Netflix isn't interested in potentially advertising their next huge competitor. Especially if the Marvel product Netflix has looks inferior to the Disney version. This is all my speculation. I can believe IF numbers could have dropped, but this "creative differences" thing sounds like something else was going on.

marvel has been up front they want their own properties, because apparently we need another streaming service (The Disney one).

Canada makes weed legal, and my condo immediately rules that no weed can be lit (smoked/vaped) on the premises (balcony or common areas.) Lame.

@lundy86_4: It's to be expected that weed would follow similar restrictions as smoking tbh. They're doing the same thing at universities. It's gonna be an interesting transition period :P.

@XVision84: They made smoking it like smoking a cigarette, rather than drinking, which is cool. Unfortunately, the condo act allows them to set the rules. I'll just have to walk a whole 100-ft, I guess.

@lundy86_4: We got a similar letter, the day of legalization. I'm guessing that the point is so that other people don't have to smell it, ...not that it's ever stopped people before.

It keeps things interesting. You get people who don't post regularly jumping in with the sword ready. Makes for a fun read.

@SOedipus: Definitely the point, and I respect that. Unfortunately, I live in a condo with older people. Sucks, but not the end of the world... Definitely gonna smoke on the road 100-ft away and just walk home.

Funny, cos the weed smell just doesn't stick like tobacco smoke.

Somebody shared a facebook post from Niagara Regional Police, because they got called out to a 911 call for pot-smoking... They had to post on their facebook that it's not illegal anymore lol.

@Chutebox: Weed smell is non-lingering (largely.) Tobacco is the exact opposite. Still, there's a difference in being offensive and just lingering and smoking... That's obnoxious. I have far more respect for my neighbours and other condo owners in my building. Due to my area being more affluent (we moved here at the right time,) many of my neighbours are 20+ years older than me.

I don't get the Terminator complaints. Sarah Conner was a bad ass woman (who felt real), as long as it wasn't Emilia Clarke, who's just bad in anything that isn't GOT.

Didn't they watch the last movies?

By the way, I actually watch the live action Titans on DC App yesterday, only into episode 1. It's not as edgy as I thought it would be. I enjoyed all the Robin scenes, which reminded me of the Arkham games. Raven was better than expected, Starfire was as expected and I like the idea of her being a Prostitute, and Beast boy is still unknown to me.

All in all, it wasn't bad, Starfire feels a lot better than how the trailers portray her and the trailers themselves was bad but not after watching episode 1.
