  1. 2017 CFL SEASON

    There are still issues. Mainly, the city of Halifax has made it clear they are not planning to finance building a stadium so private money has to step up. But aside from that at least this bid seems credible enough.
  2. Кубок Mира 2018 (World Cup '18)

    I think Russia probably have a lot of problems no matter who they draw. Typically hosts always did well until South Africa, but I just look at Russia's lineup and I don't see a lot of wow factor there. And there are several pot 2 teams they are going to need help to beat.
  3. Кубок Mира 2018 (World Cup '18)

    Congratuations to Germany and France on making the final.

    I did the same dumb thing I did with OOTP last time: Start a completely custom league. This time a 4-division, 40 team "major league" with AAA, AA, and A ball. Between tweaking the league rules, correcting team uniforms, and the opening draft I have played 8 hours and I've yet to actually play a game in said league. I have played a couple other games and it seems like guys make errors more often but that could just be weird variance.
  5. UPCOMING VIDEO GAMES (2017 & Beyond)

    The Loot Box/Next Needed Upgrade push is what drove me away from Star Trek Online years ago, and I sort of learned my lesson it's just not for me then. I just tend to be one of those people that this style of game becomes more a job than a game at some point so I don't go there.

  7. Highway to Ham Week #10

    What seriously? I think that's the first time I've pulled that off in this game, ever.

    I never beat Shadowgate until it's modern re-release and using a walkthrough because I am weak and stupid.
  9. UPCOMING VIDEO GAMES (2017 & Beyond)

    The backlash about this sort of paygating in pay games is nothing new really. NBA 2K18 is clocking a whopping 26% positive on Steam reviews because of people fed up with how the career mode works, but it's yet to show a ton of actual impact in sales that I know of. Still there will come a breaking point where gamers do say enough.

    The Roy Halladay celebration of life is on Sportsnet right now for the Canadians.
  11. 2017 NFL: WEEK TEN

    The Dolphins are just unwatchable.
  12. 2017-18 NHL SEASON: Period One

    They have no secondary offense at all. Like, there is no one in their bottom six that can even theoretically score. They have one actual established RW, Kassian, who even if you like the guy (and he absolutely works hard, I will give him credit that post-rehab he's trying to do all the right things) is going to take more dumb penalties than goals produced. Draisaitl is being paid specifically as a C but has to play W because they have no alternative. Puljujarvi has looked good his first 2 games back up, but he is still an unknown. Chiarelli is all in on size and character, which is all well and good and has plugged some holes, but it's created some other, gaping ones. They knew they wouldn't have Sekera for 6 months during the summer and signed exactly 0 NHL defensemen to fill the hole. They gave Kris Russell, an undersized, turnover machine who is a great skater (but refuses to skate with the puck), who leads the NHL in blocked shots because he turns over the puck once a shift, and scores one goal every 60 games, a four year contract instead. We are less than 20 games into the season and he's already - DESPITE Sekera's absence - fallen down the depth chart to the point he had the least minutes of any of the 6D twice in the last 4 games (competing for that with Eric Gryba). This is pretty much what all the Oilers bloggers the mainstream media types hate predicted. Sad to say that it's so far coming true. I still think they make the playoffs because Talbot and McDavid drag them there kicking and screaming, but the team is nothing more than that unless there is a massive shock coming from the Drake Caggiula's of the world.

    I don't think I've listened to a single new album this year. I have totally fallen off the rails. I feel bad about this, music is the best.
  14. UPCOMING VIDEO GAMES (2017 & Beyond)

    I think it becomes more clear by the year that with these big companies a lot of the decisions are being made by people that don't actually play or understand video games but are simply Interchangeable Corporate Parts. That still doesn't justify that sort of potential cost, but it's all I've got.
