    HBO's (i think it's HBO) anyway, Succession is really good. Holy fudgepackers, it's fudged. I hate bingeing shit only to get caught up.

    I need a new game. I finally finished RDR a few days ago.

    The new update on No Man's Sky looks amazing. There's no telling how long I could play that game. I'm debating. I played some other sports games like Double Dribble and John Elways football, but it really took off in the 90's with EA games.

    Back in Columbus my roommate/coworker and I would go to American Bandstand and he'd bring home some of the biggest girls there. Sometimes two at a time. They used to gift him stuff all the time in exchange for his huge....personality. One bought a PS1 and all the '99 EA games. So I am leaning towards a sports game this time. The last NBA2 game I bought was '16 I believe?

    Anyone watching HBO's The Righteous Gemstones? I like just about anything with Danny McBride. (writer, director, producer)



    It's so good.

    I’m horrible at following shows. Mainly because there’s so many to choose from. But yea, I can’t wait to run in 2k20. The demo has been kind of a let down.

    I watch a lot of tv at work, but can't play games. I've been watching some online streams of 2K. I think I'm going to hold off until you guys give a review.

    I'm enjoying the season premiere of Power, although, it's a shadow of the early seasons.

    About time Sunday nights got interesting again.

    Like most 2k games, I’ll hate it at first but grow into it. It’s gonna be harder than previous years to make a good player, I think.

    I’ve been playing dead by daylight. Unique game. Probably going to draw a lot more interest with the stranger things chapter being added in a few weeks.

    BL3 comes out the day I go on vacation. So I’ll probably pick it up at midnight and take my PlayStation or pc with me to gulf shores.

    Any of you NBA 2K20 guys playing my career? If so, can we not call for screens any longer? I don’t see that as an option. Same with changing actual plays for certain players.

    Left bumper, or left trigger? But it might not be until you reach a certain team chemistry.

    Btw, this is the most broken 2k of all time. Seriously, it’s terrible.

    Thanks. Yeah, I think it’s only when I get to a certain point which I haven’t reached yet. You make your guy yet? What build you go with?

    Some of the videos on Twitter of how broken it is are pretty funny though. People are super pissed!

    6’11 rebounder and finisher, max wingspan and pretty heavy. Can’t shoot the ball at all, but I am big :). You? Yeah, the game is so super broken… Logged in to play with @JimboBBN last night… After three days of the game being out the designers listened to YouTube people and sped the game up, but sped it up way too much… It was like the flash playing basketball. They are releasing another patch this morning to fix that. But lots of people are not leveling up and getting experience, and the badge grind is ridiculous

    Seriously tho, it was moving so fast it was nearly impossible to visually keep up with it. Remember, I'm in my 40s, I'm not some 20 something whippersnapper;) And by the time my big lug of a guy had changed direction to keep up with some race car, the guy had scored and the ball was already heading back down the floor. It took something like 2.5 seconds to run from baseline to baseline:)

    The new patch is out this AM, to bring it back down to normal. Will still be faster than the original, but not as bad. Which I think kind of sucks... I thought the game actually felt really good, when you weren't disconnected or whatever. I'm always amazed how the game is out for two days and the devs change so much, like shooting and speed. Let the game sit for a bit, let people get used to it, let people get a few badges. Otherwise it just shows that they have no confidence in their work or did no testing (or maybe both.)

    Badge grind is a BITCH.

    BTW, I saw people complaining about shooting. I was like "WTF, my PG hits more greens than he hits regular shots and gets misses combined." Are people just bad at the game?

    Oh, and they patched that glitch yesterday:( They can patch glitches, but they can't make sure people actually get badge or development points, right?

    Hey man, you know I have a mancrush on my PG;)

    There is a lot of push to make the badge grind better; I am pretty sure they will improve it.

    I do like the idea that you can move your badges around whenever you upgrade a badge... I was sort of thinking that, on the next badge upgrade, I might dump ALL of my defensive badge points into a single category, just to see what a HoF badge feels like compared to a bunch of bronzes...? I'd have to stay that way for a badge worth of progress, but it might be interesting?

    Basketball tonight and tomorrow, btw... wife is working, so we must run. We've barely gotten any games in!

    Yea I’ll be on tonight for sure. We actually played a game of pro am yesterday. Me, Kyle, Brandon, jungle, and red. We were getting beat by like 20 points and cut the lead all the way down to 6 in the 4th quarter. Ended up losing by 20+ lol pro am is tough.

    For sure. Was it super fast, or was that JUST park? That's a good comeback, though!

    If we do pro am, I think it would be wise for us to have just a few set actions to begin the possession, if that makes sense. Something simple, so everyone has a VERY rough idea of what everyone else will be doing... otherwise we are SO unfamiliar with 5 v 5 that I feel like everyone is running around a bit... like, three people at once setting the PG screens because each didn't know the other two would be doing it? I mean super super simple stuff, just like I know that I should try two things... either run a pick with the ballhandler, or run to the opposite post... Brandon knows to either run a pick and roll with Red, or head to a corner... like that? I know it might take a minute or two of discussion, but I think in the long run it would make us SUCH a better 5 v 5 team... and I wouldn't mind if we did that a bit, because I think we would do really well. Hell, even just make two big man/little man partnerships at the start of each game, and the partners look to work together, you know?

    Wasn’t as fast in Pro Am. The thing about PA is, if you’re good at defense you’ll win. Our opponent beat us because they kept getting steals and dunks. Dumping then ball inside to a big or cutter is suicide.

    Yeah, makes sense... that is SORT of offense too, though... if you run an offense where your players know where to go to receive the pass and when, and the passers know roughly where to look and when, you'll get it stolen a LOT less, you know?

    They were literally packing the paint. You would understand if you had seen it. It’s just a lot harder

    Oh sure, specific instances, it can totally be a mess. Need a lot of three point shooting to spread it out, I suppose, or bring a big out for a screen where the other players stay away, or whatever... 5 v 5, you've gotta have a lot of coordination and communication, which is harder than 3 v 3:)

    Sitting at my desk watching Nikki Glaser's NF routine. It's really funny how much she talks about penis', bj's, and semen.

    How did you watch it? Theater or streaming? I’m interested in seeing it. I loved the first 2 movies with those characters.

    It's trustworthy, but you do you. :) It is really good. As good as the other two IMO. Did you see where Captain Spaulding died?
