Jeff, your Wild are looking pretty dangerous this year.  Congrats on the comeback against my Bruins.

May be just me, but you MUST have a PC flight stick to play this game.  Just a heads up.  You actually have it loaded to even load the game, which surprised me.  XW and TIE used to be usable with a mouse/keyboard if you were a daring soul, but not any longer I guess.

I just ordered a flight stick off Amazon for under $50 shipped free.  There are cheaper though.  I wanted something slightly above average though, as I plan to enjoy this a while.

Let's do this, JD Sports Forum!

Does everyone know that LeBron James left Miami and signed with Cleveland during the off-season?

Division and playoff predictions to follow.

I've downloaded both...  I'm ready to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of bubblegum.

I like that they included the manuals, which had "encrypted codes".  These things were glorious pieces of EU, as much as immersive gaming experiences.  I have the game SG's on my Star Wars reference book shelf, and I have them there because the guides were expanded material on the game's storylines!  I cannot wait to get back into these.  To see those glorious cutscenes (the Rebels destroying that Destroyer with the bomb they sneak aboard using a stolen shuttle?  The scene is a wealth of custom ideas!), the kick ass missions and story, and the complex game play that made Star Wars fighters seem so much more real than even the movies made them seem!

Yeah I'm the Empire though. :(  At the time I signed up there wasn't a JD group and I didn't play Alliance.  I'm working on my base being Level 7 soon...  I've got it where it's pretty tough for enemies to get beyond 50% destruction with me. 

I've been exacting my revenge of late too, on guys that attacked me when I was a noob.

Some thoughts...

On Abraham leaving, they've brought it up about his character that Rick has his mission, and Abraham has his, and Abraham's possible flaw (or advantage) is he's completely focused on his "mission" and I think the mission is what his leaving is all about...  He says there's a threat to Eugene so he's leaving.  Maggie/Glenn convince him if he sticks around 12 hours to help deal with the Hunters they'll go with him, no questions, no hassle.  He wants that, so he agrees.  He leaves, they leave with him.  He is on his mission, and his mission doesn't include looking for Darryl/Carol, which is what Rick wants to stay and do.  Abraham's leaving is about leaving Darryl/Carol and continuing the DC trip, is the way I see it.  So to me it makes sense I guess.

Garreth knows Carol, Tyrese, and Judith's names via Tyrese's goon he let go.  He knew Bob's name back at Terminus, Rick as well if I recall, back at the trough.  It's tough to say how long they were being held because there's not a clear cut timeline on that...  The group look to have worked on their weapons a little while though, so I'm ok with suspending disbelief that he learned the names of the captives quickly and got the last 3 from the guy Tyrese didn't kill.

The slaughter of the Termites in the church was OUTSTANDING.  Every bit as satisfying, if not a little more quick, as the Claimers being killed.  I think it is personal with Garreth, but I think it's a personal thing that goes back to the takeover of Terminus from them.  I think that eating people is clearly not a necessity, so they do it for some reason beyond that.  They can hunt.  They can gather.  The ability to maintain a society that way is clear with Woodbury, so I think the Termites maintain the "it's not personal" thing for their own psyche, but they're all doing what they do because it's personal.  At the very least the core ones (Garreth, his mother, etc.).

No clue on the tainted meat thing...  I'd go with whatever you say on that Bill.  All I can add is that people won't eat meat from a kill if say the intestines or whatever are punctured and contaminate the meat.  It's why gutting a deer is so important that it's done right.  I dunno.  I can go either way thinking the cooking helped reduce risk or it didn't and they were all going to die.  Ingesting stuff puts it in your bloodstream, so does the bite it seems, sooooo...  I dunno.  Maybe they'll never get to explaining that type of stuff?

I couldn't gather whether Rick & Co. came back on purpose, and lured the Termites in on purpose, or if they just happened back for some reason?  They didn't seem to explain that.  I like to think Rick did that on purpose, and basically used everyone in Gabriel's office as bait, more or less.

Gabriel's big character flaw is he's a coward then?  I'm underwhelmed. 

I think Darryl has Morgan with him, or someone new, but not Carol.  I just don't see why he'd keep her back (she's as competent as he is, and she knows the group and they know her).  Morgan you'd keep back because he doesn't know everyone to see them...  I dunno.  I'm just betting it's not Carol.

That's all I can gather. 

Wherever Beth is, it sure looks populated.   :-X

So, if you mix everything together, you get...

05/01/15 - Avengers: Age of Ultron
07/17/15 - Ant-Man
03/25/16 - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
05/06/16 - Captain America: Civil War
08/05/16 - Suicide Squad
11/04/16 - Doctor Strange
05/05/17 - Guardians of the Galaxy 2
06/23/17 - Wonder Woman
07/28/17 - Thor: Ragnarok
11/03/17 - Black Panther
11/17/17 - Justice League (Part I)
03/23/18 - The Flash
05/04/18 - Avengers: Infinity War (Part I)
07/06/18 - Captain Marvel
07/27/18 - Aquaman
11/02/18 - Inhumans
04/05/19 - Shazam
05/03/19 - Avengers: Infinity War (Part II)
06/14/19 - Justice League (Part II)
04/03/20 - Cyborg
06/19/20 - Green Lantern


- Just stop and look at that for a minute.  That is ridiculous.  And it doesn't even include the Fox stuff or the Sony Spider-Man stuff.  At what point does regular, non-fanboy America put their hands up and say "enough already with all the super-hero movies!"

- One more thing, made clear again by the Marvel announcements today - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still a horrible movie title.   Great name for a legal essay examining the Batman v Superman court case though.

We have room for 2 Rebels in our squad...search for Jedidefender

I'd really love to join a group, but went with the Imperials.  I find it silly the rebels "Heroes" can withstand the firepower of the Imperial magnitude.

I will crush your rebellion.
Are you playing, Jesse?

I keep going back and looking at that Black Panther costume (apparently he'll be in Cap3).  For something so basic and all black, that is one damn sexy costume.

And we were told that there was a BP teaser in the recent AoU trailer, which is 100% likely Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaw (remember the random bearded man in the middle?)

Damn.  A Serpent Society movie would have been all kinds of badass.
