    For ****s sake....just watched don’t **** with cats. You were right, glad they didn’t show much. Thought it was strange the emotion showed on killing animals vs a human—both pretty disturbing. Not sure what’s more disturbing, those videos or the fact people believed his modeling fans were real via comments. I’ve never seen a less attractive, no muscle guy....tell people he is told he has devastatingly good looks. That mother ****er looked like a 20k person town white hood rat that tipped his hair and wore an alco knockoff nba jersey to a YMCA pick up game looking queef in gas station sunglasses.

    Pretty messed up, again, live your whole life without googling the last video(human).You'll be better off. I made the mistake of doing that, and now I wear it forever.

    But also the human hunters were crazy as well, they caused dude to off himself

    Also, the show doesnt even touch the surface of what happened in the last video. Obviously they will not show it, but I figured they would mention it.

    My buddy pulled up a faces of death video and showed me a middle eastern war territory soldier cutting another soldiers throat with his boot holding the guys head down. This was in college and I watched out of the corner of my eye. It’s so strange watching it during a Rambo movie and then seeing it happen in reality. It’s not remotely similar and if you don’t have the knowledge the person being killed was a terrible human...it’ll stick with you a long time. Can’t believe people watched people being stoned, being burned at the stake, and beheaded...as a public event. Particularly if you know the guy doesn’t come close to deserving that as punishment. The didn’t show the vacuum sealed bag happening.....but even that made me totally side eye it.

    I do not watch that sort of stuff. I am not a religious man, but I cannot help but feel that it does some sort of damage to ones soul to watch that stuff.

    I watch any and everything and yeah, my soul is probably f'd.

    I think I've seen the best and worst humanity and the Universe has to offer.

    Why on earth do you do something every night for three years running that damages your soul...? :)

    Yeah, I know it is out there... I just don’t want to see it. I’ve always had an active imagination and some odd extreme empathy... like, I don’t watch slasher movies because I end up thinking about all of the people who have died horrible deaths similar to what is in those movies and how terrible their last moments were and all of that.

    I did realize, I DO watch some military video, often kill cams from Apaches and the like, but they are rarely detailed and my interest in the military aspect (listening to the audio etc) tends to overcome my unease. But even that is very, very rare.

    Dude, you know I love J, but man he loves to give me a hard time yet never gives anyone else any guff. That last game last night, I had ten points on 5/5 shooting and ten boards, while B went 0/7, and Jungle was grumbling that our issue was rebounding. I’m like dude, I had a double double in a game to 21. I doubt I was the issue. Come on now:)

    If you have an xbox with gamepass and have never played it, d/l The Witcher 3. Top 3 open world game of all time. Also watch The Witcher on Netflix. Henry Cavill is great as Geralt.

    I added Witcher to my list, haven't got around to watching it yet. I have some friends who are gameboys and they swear by it.

    I played the shit out of the Witcher 3 when it came out a few years ago, definitely helps if you're going to watch the series (which was pretty awesome).

    I'm aware of the game, but never played it. Do you think it'll affect the watching experience?

    yeah, you're not going to understand the lore... it might actually make it better I don't know. The games take place after the books so if you play the game the series is a prequel... and the series is based on the books not the games so some characters (Triss) don't look like you would imagine.

    Witcher3 is one of the best games I've ever played. Put a solid 250+ hours into it between two playthroughs and all the DLC.

    I'd say that game and Zelda Breath of the Wild (300 hours) are the two best games I've played, maybe ever.

    I tried Witcher 2 several times and just never really got into it. Watched the show, loved it. Played Witcher 3 for a week and rewatched the show.. playing it made the 2nd watch much better. Triss' character definitely threw me off though.

    The 3rd game really is amazing. # 2's movement was slow and clunky to me so I never finished it. Hoping for a 4th in the next few years. I'd say Witcher 3 and Skyrim are my two favorite open world games.

    Flint Town is pretty eye opening concerning what police officers face every day.

    I am not sure if they plan on another or not. I agree, those are the 2 best open world RPG games ever made. Take a look at the IGN list, I was not aware Minecraft dropped in 2010.

    Great list. Feel like I've been bored games the last few years and find myself complaining about how much better old games (NES, SNES, 64... etc..) were. But, that list puts it into perspective for me. A lot my favorite games came out this decade. The last year or so has been rough IMO though.

    Next year looks promising. Halo: Infinite, Doom: Eternal, Cyberpunk, possibly Elder Scrolls VI.

    I go through spurts where I play it for a week then uninstall. I did build a cool ass Rupp Arena years back.

    Yeah lol. I made it a long time ago on the 360. It was pretty dope. Had it surrounded with a wall of huge 8bit statues of mega man, mario, pikachu, goku, ninja turtles, etc.. File got corrupted and wouldn't transfer to my xbox one unfortunately. I've started recreating it but it's not as good as the original.

    Been playing old games too, original Xbox and Xbox 360. Other than RDR2 there hasn't been much of anything come out lately that remotely interests me. I played Outer World's and it was ok but really nothing special.

    Agree with you on Witcher 2, played like 10 minutes of it then uninstalled.

    Outer World's was cool, just felt like a knock off version of Bioshock mixed with Fallout. I need to play RDR2, Dark Souls 3, and Sekiro. Loved RD1 and DS 1 & 2.

    I still grind Rocket League. Been playing for 3 years and the population keeps growing somehow. Other than that, I just d/l a random game on Gamepass if I'm bored of RL, Halo, Fortnite. SOT is fun occasionally if you're playing with friends. I usually just sneak on people's ships and troll.

    I wish Xbox had the rights to all the old Nintendo stuff. Imagine playing ranked Goldeneye online. I miss all those old games. Just don't want the hassle of having 6ish different consoles.

    GT is Jnunn btw if any of you wanna game sometime.

    I have Outer Worlds on the box but have not tried it, been grinding on the PC when not playing Subnautica. Rocket League started out as some free little game on my PS4 years ago and now it has this giant pro scene. Its nuts.
    RD2 will not disappoint and would have been game of the year ( should have been IMO ) if not for God of War. Just be ready, its roughly an 80 hour play through with limited fast travel.

    When I do get on the box now its Rainbow 6 almost exclusively now. And only if one or 2 buddies is on. Otherwise I just watch TV on it.

    Outer Worlds is definitely worth a playthrough, but you'll probably forget it exists in a few yrs.

    The RL scene is nuts man. I'm pretty good and have champ just based off positioning and rotating. I'll never hit grand champ though. Those players are nuts mechanically. The game's getting old, yet the best continue to find new mechanics that change how it's played. The tournaments are my favorite esport to watch. The crowds act like crowds at Euro Soccer matches. Crazy atmosphere.

    I use the Xbox for media too. All your subscription apps, Spectrum TV... and you can d/l Kodi, jailbreak it, and watch anything you want. I've been watching Are You Afraid of the Dark on it lol.

    Kodi got jacked up for me a couple of years ago, is it still working? If you have a YouTube link for jailbreaking it that still works let me know.
