I like Hypnotize and Toxicity. My favorite sings are Holy Mountains, Chop Suey, Sad Statue, and B.Y.O.B.

FINE!

SOAD is alright. But I only like 5 of their songs:
  • Chop Suey
  • Aerials
  • Toxicity
  • Radio/Video
  • Question!

I'm more of a Mezmerize guy.

BYOB, Sad Statue, Question!, Cigaro, the classics.

Oh, and if you want just straight up weird, listen to their self-titled all the way through.

I played MW2 and I shot a guy. It was the most intense moment of my life. Nothing has ever come close. Not even nearly getting killed while river rafting was that exhilarating.

They should've stopped with CoD after that game. Would've been a perfect end to the series.

Look where we are 5 years later..in CoD hell.

Agreed. I will never buy or rent or touch or look at another CoD again.

MW was the peak. MW2 was the downfall.

This cube is driving me insane.

Recently I bought myself a wonderful little Rubik's cube. After an hourly two of staring at it, I thoug "Eh, I'm a smart guy, so what's the worst that can happen?" So I scrambled the shit put of it. And now I can't figure out how the fuck I'm supposed to figure it out! It's the most daunting thing ever, and it sits next to my bed and stares at me hauntingly. Does anyone know how I'm supposed to figure this damn thing out?

It's not for a kid to play around with. Though I don't think even I could ever solve one.

I used to know a guy who could solve one in under a minute no matter who scrambled it and no matter how long they did it for.

That's because there's a specific formula to solving it. I don't know it, but it's really easy once you do. I had a friend who solved them in under 40 seconds or so.

He is spot on, it can still be solved in the same amount of time whether it was scrambled for 10 minutes or 10 seconds

I forgot to mention he could solve it without looking at the cube.

I'm not exaggerating either.

Because it's solved the same way every time! hahaha.

One glance to start is all you need once you memorize the steps. In fact, my friend coud solve a 4x4 cube in under a minute ten.

He also had this weird sliding contraption that was similar to the cube, but it was much more difficult.

UPDATE: Solved.

I memorized the algorithms to solve the damn thing. I shall post a video when I learn how. I can do it in about a minute and thirty, but I'll get faster the better ill get.

Never seen that movie and can't solve a puzzle to save my life. Puzzle sections in games almost always have me running to a guide. My brain just doesn't work like that.

One of my great uncles has this psychotic trick with the cube he pulled on me in my 20's. First time I'd ever seen anything like it.

He'd ask you to pick a number between I dunno, 25 and 55 or something (making that up, hadn't seen the trick in a few years but it definitely didn't start at 1 ). Tell him the number then he'd hand YOU the cube, ask you to mix it up all you want and hand it back to him.

He will be looking you in the eye.
And starts to make turns, counting.
Still looking you in the eye.
He'll hand the cube back to you a couple times throughout and ask you to mix it up again then give it back to him.
Still looking you in the eye the entire time.
When he counts to the number you told him.
SOLVED!

Each count was a turn of the cube.

Old guy is blind as a bat and a memory like a leaky bucket but goddamn he knows his puzzles and numbers. A right savant. Wish I kinda had a bit of that part of the family in me, it's unreal and I'm shyte at puzzles and all I got was the leaking bucket for memory.

He also had this little booklet of numbers on different pages, had to be 30 numbers on a page and every page was different. You flip through, pick a number and stay quiet on it. He'd ask a couple times if the number is on this page or that, then after at most 3-4 times asking he'd guess the right number. Every time. Unreal.

Same here, MW2 was an improvement from COD4 in every aspect but that didn't make the game better than COD4 imo. I think the game after MW2 was the downfall.

Can I ask what sound "shidders" makes?

Just messing with you. High school sucks, and then you get to college and everything suddenly gets all better.

School is literally some of the best years you'll have in your life! Then you start Uni and everything is 10x crazier. I went to a private school so the teachers were dicks but you would definitely learn shit unless you completely rejected the class. I don't know what it's like to have shitty teachers but I can imagine it to be life numbing.

Biology sucks so god damn much because it is so uninteresting, boring, frustrating, out of the book memorization. I have a fucking C in the class because of the stupid ass tests. I can't even be bothered to really try as I hate it so much. As long as I pass (anything above a D) is fine with me. As long as I don't have to go through that fucking piece of SHIT class ever again.

As for Engineering, the teacher is awful. She goes so fast and half asses every single explanation unless you do it one on one with her. She changes her directions after you already finished what was there before she changed it. Just the other day, my friend and and I worked on a CAD assignment (AutoDesk Inventor).mwe get a packet with all of the info o what we do, along with some mathematical questions relating to a physical properties analysis. So we spent the vast majority of out time in inventor, right? And then she's basically saying, "Fuck you what are you stupid?! Why in the hell would you think I'd want that? Don't submit that file!" Fucking hell. I have a B+ in that fucking class now because if it.

/rant. I really wanted to get that off my chest as it's been eating at my god damn soul.
When you're older you'll miss those carefree days. Enjoy them.

Top 10 Most Anticipated Games of 2014

10. Thief



I am looking forward to this game a lot because I really, really, really, REALLY, REALLY appreciate the stealth genre. I love sitting in the shadows waiting fr the right moment to slip by or thrust my dagger/shoot my silenced gun and drop an opponent quickly and quietly. This reboot looks like it'll deliver on everything that I love about the stealth genre, which makes me that much more excited to play it.

9. The Division



There are rumors that this game will get delayed into 2015, but honestly, who cares? The game looks sick. The environments respond with what you do in a realistic way, and the MMO idea in a post apocalyptic world sounds great! The gunplay looks solid and the voice acting is something to write home about. I am really looking forward to this game and I hope it can deliver on all it's advertising to be.

8. Titanfall



I've always wanted an interactive mech game that mixes engaging ther infantry on the ground with strategic mech gameplay. This game seems to do just that, and with this new IP, I see a lot of potential for this series to become the next CoD (interpret that how you will) in terms of success. Microsoft hope this will be the system seller of the Xbox One, the game that you say, "I'm gonna get the Xbox One because I want THAT game." And I definitely see this becoming THAT game. Best of luck to Respawn Entertainment, I believe they have the talent to make this something special.

7. Watch Dogs



I find it interesting to see what this game has in store. There seems to be tons of innovation from other sandbox games. Which is great, because it doesn't seem like a GTA wannabe. It offers something fresh. You can approach each situation how you choose, Rambo style or Thief style. You also have the weapon of hacking at your disposal which you can use in really creative and unique ways that I have never seen before in any game. The story and characters seem amazingly written and the voice acting is something to be happy about. I believe this game is destined for success.

6. The Evil Within



I've been wanting to play a good horror game. This new IP (I'm pretty sure it is at least ) seems to deliver on all that I hope for. A scary, gripping world, a dark and intense story, deep characters, chilling voice acting, you name it. Everything that I can think of that's right with a horror game, this game looks like it has. I can not wait to get my hands on this game (if I still have hands by that time).

5. The Crew



The Crew looks like it has what it takes to be the next big racing franchise. It has a very unique and deep car custom modification, and a very beautiful and dynamic recreation of the United States. It's being advertised as a more social experience where you team up with your buds and homies and perform various side missions and side quests, which I think is really great because that's not something you'd normally expect from a racing game. The innovation doesn't stop there, as there's a companion app for mobile users that lets them customize and modify their car while they are away from their console. Now that shit is cool. This game, I believe, has the potential to be the next racing game that will raise the bar for all future racing games to come.

4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt



The Witcher 3 seems to resolve all my gripes with the first. The combat has been worked, so it's now more dynamic and strategic. The world is absolutely HUGE, beautiful, and varied (check my Witcher 3 sig for an overview of what it looks like). I can not wait to see how they wrap up the story for Geralt, who is now an older man, it seems. And with a world that is supposedly 20x the size of my favorite game of the 7th generation (Skyrim), and 36 different endings, it's given any fan of role playing games a reason to take some time out of their day to look at this game. This looks like it will raise the bar for the new generation of RPGs, as Skyrim did back in 2011.

Fallout 4: Challenge ACCEPTED!!!

3. Dragon Age: Inquisition



This game looks utterly fantastic. The world looks huge, varied, and beautiful. The combat looks fun, strategic, and dynamic, and it offers you a choice of overview (like in Origins) or on the ground like in most other games. There is said to be TONS and TONS of side quests to complete, castles to explore and loot, forts to conquer, fates to change, lives to be lost, and stories to be told in the next installment of the Dragon Age franchise. And, with the talented minds of BioWare, who have a very nice history with RPGs, I have VERY high hopes for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

2. Destiny



What can I say about this game that hasn't been said before? Bungie, the creators of the legendary Halo (and the best, Halo: Reach *glares at Bigg*) franchise, which is responsible for their success, tackling on their new project with Activiison. Destiny seems to be what the child would be if Halo and Borderlands had a child together. It has lots of guns and armor sets to collect, a great and solid coop experience, varied and interesting enemies, and an overall fascinating world to immerse yourself in for countless hours. I can see this game being something that I look back on if I ever abandon gaming (which will probably never happen anyway) as an excellent game.

1. Dark Souls II



HOLY SHIT!!!! I'm literally pissing my pants in excitement for this game. I preordered the fuck out of this game when they first became available. Dark Souls II seems to resolve all my complaints about the first. Fast travel is now available from the start, so there's no more backtracking. The world is now twice as big, allowing for more exploration, loot, and satisfaction. The combat seems to flow more elegantly than ever before. This game is bound to be something special. It manages to be more straight forward, but it is not any easier than it was before. It's more open now as well, so there is much more room for glorious battle. I will be playing the shit out of this game for the months and maybe even years to come.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I will not be able to get all of these games when I'd like to, but they are all on my must-own list.
