    I bought an old Xbox game I raelly loved back in the day. Blood Wake.
    Its a boat game and the water physics were great. I cant wait to play it again.

    Movie wise, i picked up Annihilation in 4K, I bought Gotham by Gaslight blu ray steelbook and Street Fighter (the series that was on Youtube and it was pretty decent.

    Also picked up some wireless headphones so i still have to try them out and see if they are any good.

    I'm waiting for my copy of Batman and Harley Quinn steelbook to come in the mail and then Ill watch them all. Im really hyped for Batman Ninja....

    Picked up a few things... I shouldnt have but I did. I picked up Vermintide 2 , and blaz blu cross tag battle, which is blaz blu 2 on 2 tag fighting with characters from 4 or 5 franchises like blaz blu, Persona, In-Birth and something else.

    Its really fun

    Vermintide was tons of fun too. Cant wait to play it some more tonight.

    I also got School girl zombie hunters. Yeah it is what it is, and its by the people who make the really great onechanbara games. This one is more gun based zombie killing and so far its fun.

    I also picked up The Jurassic Dead. Looks stupid, but looks fun.

    RWBY. It is pretty much the only western anime, made by Rooster Teeth. The same guys who do Red vs. Blue and Achievement Hunter and stuff.

    I have bought way too many things to list since my last post. The last thing I got was Avatar: The Last Airbender complete series on Bluray. Probably the only cartoon I'd ever consider spending money on and easily one of the best cartoons of my childhood.

    WHere did Echo go? I wonder if he'll play Vermintide 2 with me

  • TimothyWedelTimothyWedel Centurion

    Knowing Echo he got bored of it and has already moved on to 15 other games. Dude plays everything for at least 15 minutes.

    I decided to splurge and buy myself a few shirts for myself and a few friends.

    ^What's that?

    That's the first 48 issues of The Walking Dead collected into one volume. I've never read the comics and figured I'd give it a go.

    This Compilation goes to the end of the prison story arc. There's two or three other Compilation volumes of the comics as well.

    Do you still watch the show?

    I haven't watched the last two seasons, I think. There was a full season of Negan,that was the last I watched.

    How was the last one. I heard whispers that x and y died or something.

    People did indeed die. Last season was pretty good, though I found the season finale anti-climatic.

    I'm actually enjoying Fear the Walking Dead more.

    I have four issues left to read to complete Volume 1 and I'm really enjoying it, so I've ordered Volume 2.

    I bought a BBQ.

    When we first moved into this place we went out and got what we thought was an ok BBQ. It was around $500 and it lasted maybe 3 years before it was a rusted out piece of shit. Yeah, we covered it in after use and stored it inside during the winter but it still managed to get wet enough that it just rotted away. Couldn't find replacement parts for it so we trashed it.

    Next we said let's go cheap, if 500 gets us 3 years, let's see what $100 will get us.

    So we found a cheap piece of shit that had replaceable grills.

    Lasted 5 years and I didn't take care of it at all. I could've bought replacement parts for the bits that had melted away, but they cost around $60 and I thought 'Nah.. not spending 60% of the cost of the unit to replace one part..'

    I treated that unit like shit and still got 5 years out of 'er. Not bad.

    Now that I've had some years of practice and spent the last 2 summers trying to BBQ the perfect burger, I knew more about what I wanted. Heat control, sturdiness.

    So I dropped $800 (after tax) on a Weber.

    After fucking with one in the store for a while, and trying all the other units that fit our size requirements (Two burner, wheels, easily fits through a door) the Weber Genesis II was what I chose.

    The lid is what sold me. Has a heat shield, bunch of ceramic, heavy as fuck.

    Like when you open this bitch you're like 'Damn, that feels good.'

    10 year warranty from the ground up and they make replacement grills for it.

    So I've been making burgers 3 times a week trying to find the sweet spot and this fucking thing is just the cats ass, man. Give it 10 mins while you prep and this thing is going 600+ degrees and climbing.

    Also, if any of you are looking for the perfect burger outside of a BBQ? Smash burger.

    Here's a video on smash burgers.

    It's ridiculous how many variations of burger composition I've been through in the last couple years trying to find my 'perfect' burger and then this easy, pan/griddle made piece of shit is the tastiest goddamn thing ever.

    Take some ground beef. Something lean, not lean, whatever, there's purists out there who say x but my mouth can't fucking tell and I don't have a grinder and my local store doesn't really get into it much so I just get lean ground beef. Works great.

    Roll 2 ounces of it into a ball twice. 'Cause these are thin patties you want two of 'em.

    Put it on your piping hot, like super fucking hot, pan or griddle. You can grease the surface very lightly if you like but it shouldn't matter as long as you have a nice flat edge spatula.

    Now smash it down until it's flat as fuck like a McDonalds burger.

    Wait 45 seconds or so until the edges are brown, flip them and immediately put a shitty piece of shit Kraft single on each.

    Once the cheese is all melty and gooey, like 20-30 seconds or less, throw 'em on top of each other on a bun, add your shit and chow down.

    It's ridiculous how tasty these things are.

    If you want to kick it up a bit you butter your bun and grill them too, give 'em your preferred amount of 'crunch'. I like raw onions and lettuce, a thin tomato, and some condiments.

    Man, what a burger.

    @Doos That's awesome man. Still loving my basic burger and the M&M Angus Burgers are great for me!

    Last year I had bought a house. It was a contractor special, so over the last year, and a half we have been doing a ton of work to it.

    I renovated the back addition, and the upstairs (I just need to put a new floor down upstairs when I have two or three days off, which is on my agenda over the next few months.) The backyard has been landscaped, and next season I'll be pouring a concrete walkway, and a hotub pad with some anchors for a new deck.

    Anyways, yesterday I had hired a company to put some spray foam in the attic, there was absolutely no insulation up there before, just the rafters. All I can say is WOW huge difference. I got home today, 30+ degrees outside, and the house is sitting at 22 without the AC on.

    Gotta love adulting, but shit I was talking to a realtor friend, and he said my house has doubled in value, (without the Reno's) he said with the Reno's I've done already, he said to add an extra 75-100k on the figure he gave me.

    Our plan was to flip the house, but we're leaning to keep it, put 50-75k into it to bring it up to firecode, and bam we have a legal duplex which will net us close to 3k month
