  1. Nintendo Switch Thread

    I got a (free) month of GameFly to try a couple of games that I didn't want to buy. Finished New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, which was really fun. It actually got quite challenging for the last portion of the game. Splatoon 2 is interesting. I can't decide how much I like it, but it's a unique concept that's done pretty well. It's fun to play a few rounds, at least, but I'm not caring for the "campaign" all that much.
  2. Nintendo Switch Thread

    Should be a fun one. I can't remember - how much content is there in these games? Is there loot and leveling up like in something like Diablo?
  3. Playstaton 5

    I feel like it's too early for a new generation. I know that statistically it's probably not, but each generation is just starting to feel too similar to me. There aren't any big jumps anymore. I flip between my Xbox One and Switch, and even though the Xbox has prettier graphics, I don't feel like the games actually feel all that different between the two. Why do we need something like 8K support? Can your eyes even tell the difference?
  4. Nintendo Switch Thread

    It's super hard. The first two levels are challenging. I died many times on those alone.
  5. The NEW FF Elite Fantasy League

    Really ? The only thing that I don't like is how there is a delay. I prefer being able to add guys that aren't on waivers immediately. Putting in $0 bids and then having to wait on guys that have been free agents for weeks isn't all that fun to me. I think I've spent maybe $2 so far?

    Glad to see the bullpen have a good game. Hopefully Darvish can build on his last start and go 5+ and Lester doesn't need much time off.
  7. Should Josh Rosen be an option for the Lions

    I don't think so. Rosen needs a chance to get experience and actually develop. He isn't going to get that here unless you have given up on Stafford.
  8. Lions sign RB CJ Anderson

    He is really expensive for a RB. His cap hit is that of a Top 15 RB, and he didn't really have a great year last year. It's hard to say if our new OC sees much of a role for him. If he's just going to be there to do that he did last year, he's not worth the money and we can find someone much cheaper and spend that money someplace else.

    What on earth is going on with the pitching staff?
  10. DC Movie Universe

    The Joker trailer looks interesting, but at the same time, I'm not sure if I want something like this. I feel like the Joker is a character that's better off when you don't know his backstory, especially if it's at all sympathetic. I don't want a film that makes people feel bad for the guy, which is (potentially) what might happen here.
  11. Chicago Cubs Thread - #secondhalfcubs

    The thing is it shouldn't be this bad. It's not a good group, but it's also not the worst bullpen in the league, even with Morrow out. It's weird that even guys that are consistently good, like Cishek and Strop, are suddenly blowing games for us.
  12. The NEW FF Elite Fantasy League

    Fantrax desperately needs an app. I'm doing fine with setting my lineup in my browser, but Christ would an app with notifications be a hell of a lot easier than what we have right now. That's the only real flaw with the system so far.
  13. Lions sign RB CJ Anderson

    I like this. He's a good veteran that should be able to give KJ a break. I think that Riddick is probably gone (he's just way too expensive for what he brings to the table).
  14. Chicago Cubs Thread - #secondhalfcubs

    I don't think that the bullpen is really that bad, but it sure as hell isn't good either. It's good when everyone is clicking, but guys like Edwards also totally implode. He's not a guy that you're going to be able to trust if they implement the rule where relievers have to face all three batters next year. When he's off of his game he will walk all three. Darvish was tough to watch. I thought that he would get off to a good start after a solid spring. The only starters I'm really confident in are Quintana and Hendricks. Darvish is a wild card at this point, and Lester and Hamels are at the age where the wheels might fall off at any point.
  15. MLB/MLBPA changes coming in 2019/2020

    Isn't there some other way to limit all of the reliever changes besides the three-batter rule? I get what they're going for, because mid-inning pitching changes get boring as hell in the later innings, but couldn't they just limit the number of warm-up pitches or something? Right now the reason that it takes so long is because you have to watch the manager walk out there, get the ball, watch the reliever trot in from the outfield, and then spend a couple of minutes warming up. Send that guy in there on a cart, make the manager make the decision as soon as he steps out of the dugout, and don't give them so many warm-up pitches. Boom. Saves the same amount of time but still allows strategic bullpen management. It will be interesting to see how this impacts lineups, though. Teams are going with the sabermetric lineup construction, but might that change with this? There would be some value (I'm not sure) in trying to go R-L-R-L throughout your lineup to limit the effectiveness certain relievers. You might also see more pinch hitters or less platooning I suppose.
