Explain why you have such affection for the Ultimate Truth. Have you practice it yourself or what
mirocu
Sure have. Only got up one step from white belt when they cancelled it where I live though. Long time ago now, but I still remember the kata they taught me as well as most, if not all, the stances, punches, kicks and all the combinations of them. I remember being especially fond of lowkicks since most people have Hollywood and their spectacular high head kicks in mind. Seems like lowkicks aren't expected as much.

My man. That you chose to favor low-kicks speaks of a sound and pragmatic mindset when it comes to shot selection. Low kicks are criminally underrated outside of MT and Kickboxing, especially the ones targeting the opponent’s inner thigh. One good shot there and you’ve compromised their mobility for the rest of the confrontation.

It’s not flashy but it gets the job done. Nice one, bird, nice one indeed

I very much agree with you wholeheartedly here. No need to always knock someone out cold, get them to not being able to move around so good and you're golden. I prefer the knee though, seeing how disabled I was myself when crashing with my bike and landing on my left knee. It was even on a dirt road so no asphalt, and on the other side was the soft seat, and I was limping for a few weeks afterwards. But yeah, the inner thigh is a good place too. Hurts like a female dog wink.gif

Saw this this on YouTube and frankly I'm a little intrigued. Stream games that you don't have to download and a reasonable membership fee...I might have to look into this.

Latency and Bandwidth issues will make it unworkable for most people. You'll need FTTP (FIOS for example) to get the bandwidth needed for the video stream, and that's assuming none of your neighbors is using any. It adds the internet connection delays from you to the Stadia server to the one between them and the game server itself. Two links instead of one.

With local rendering in the non-Stadia situation, only game changes need to be transmitted, not the whole video stream, and that's orders of magnitude smaller. Many processes happen locally, with no lag due to the internet, but with Stadia everything happens remotely, and the same full-bandwidth video stream is needed for simple things like inventory display.

And if you're paying your ISP for total data, it won't be cheap. Data caps will mean no play after a point, and so on.

And like Steam, it's another middleman who can cut you off from your contract with the game supplier.

What it will be good for, is trying a game before you download a copy. If they allow that.

Khajiit would think that it would work like Netflix or other streaming services, in that you can play whatever games they have available as much as you want as long as you are paying the sub. This one would be quite annoyed if he paid the sub and then had to buy the games after that. Might as well just stick to Steam or GoG, no sub.

Guys. My old WoW guild's officers have extended the invite back after I left on not so good grounds.

I don't know what to do about it. I did not ask anyone to do this. I was willing to take responsibility for my own screw up. I really did like those guys, but I'm afraid it'll be awkward...

I had a spat during the summer when my medication wasn't working and my bipolar disorder came out to play. I snapped on the wrong people at the wrong time and had no idea there was an issue in the first place.

So I was asked to leave. So I did.

Now Kinetic, one of the officers and everyone's creepy uncle, has extended an offer to come back. And idk what to do.

I had a spat during the summer when my medication wasn't working and my bipolar disorder came out to play. I snapped on the wrong people at the wrong time and had no idea there was an issue in the first place.

So I was asked to leave. So I did.

Now Kinetic, one of the officers and everyone's creepy uncle, has extended an offer to come back. And idk what to do.

Do you want to go back? Would it really benefit you and be worth the awkwardness?

Kinda. Just awkwardness.

Gonna be talking to the officers about it at some point here in the near future so we're all on the same page.

There's going to be terms and conditions. To prevent a repeat of the last time. I was in that guild for well over a year before it went tits up. Was one of their higher ranking members too. :/

Eh, sounds like unnecessary drama. This is why I generally only play single player games, ESO being the exception and even then I only belong to our little Chorrolites guild. Guaranteed good folks there and completely drama free!

By Julianos' little teapot! With over 3 years and 6500 hours in ESO, Buffy and I are still enjoying every moment.

Seriously though, I hope you find a happy game home. smile.gif

Krikey, I'm probably nowhere near those hours and I've gamed with Lothran for over a decade now, IN THE SAME GAME! rollinglaugh.gif rollinglaugh.gif

6500 hours is like, equivalent to 270 days.

My WoW hours over 15 years at approximately 50 to 60 hours a week equals out to a lot of time spent.

I do social content there. I don't like ESO's activity finder, i dont like how tanking and healing work(The two roles I prefer). I ran out of quests and alts got tedious. My crafting was maxed on two characters. I don't RP.

I've probably put 1k hours into ESO, or more(I played from beta through the first year) and no life games. It's probably why I ran out of stuff to do. ESO just doesn't have the end game repeatable content world of Warcraft does.

My guild there mostly died(don't like the multiple guild thing and *loathe* the merchant guild system) so I didn't have people to run with anymore.

Eh. It is what it is. Molag Bal sits on my bookshelf. He survived a transatlantic move. All is good.

Not saying it's a bad game. Far from it. It just didn't fit me long term.

Saki should get a blackpowder gun!

I can't own anything until this citizenship application processes.

I was about to make a joke but decided against it wink.gif


How long will it take?
Sakiri
Heck if I know. Average wait is 12 to 24 months because Brits are being given priority.
mirocu
Bu - Bu - But you're a Murican! Can't you just cut the line or something? laugh.gif
Sakiri
Nope.

Unfortunately.

Tired, as always.

Trying to make a pair of socks and the gorram things are all coming out too small.

They need to be a wee bit big for me to fit Dad.
