  1. Madden 18

    You're dead to me. Move the Jags, no one cares about them.

    Absolutely. It's what drives their development and everything else has got kicked to the curb. I absolutely blame it for the overall decline of FIFA.
  3. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    I definitely agree with putting most of the blame on GRRM. He absolutely and utterly failed to live up to his end of the bargain. The show writers were hired to adapt a book for a show not finish writing the last two books. It's ridiculous and GRRM has absolutely no excuses and if the series doesn't live up to his vision it is no ones fault but his own.

    Bailly, Smalling with Butland in goal is basically game over.
  5. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    Yeah and that is totally fine. If it was just the only thing that happened that episode I probably wouldn't care as much about it but it's just the accumulation of things that episode and this season overall. There was just too many things that were stretches at best. For me personally it bothers me more than it bothers you and that is okay, I just think it's a definite deviance from where the show started.

    I had an Xbox so it's basically just legends but it's pretty cool. More older players is always a good thing in my opinion although there is a zero percent chance that I will ever be lucky to pack one of them haha. I absolutely despised FIFA17 and pretty much stopped playing it within the first month but I'm really hoping FIFA 18 is an improvement and I'll most likely end up caving and buying it. I'm really looking forward to the demo though.
  7. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    You keep saying that. I just said he did the same thing with TWO other people on his horse last season with Bran and Meera. It clearly isn't an issue based on previous episodes so why does he now have to slow down the wights? If he was there the whole time why wouldn't he have intervened before or jumped in to save Jon from drowning? It's not that I want more out of the characters but I want characters to exist more than just a way to stop main characters from dying. Benjen literally served absolutely zero purpose outside of rescuing two main characters, that isn't a lack of time issue, it is a crappy writing issue. He didn't even really have any screen time besides those two scenes and we're just supposed to be okay with a minor character showing up to save two characters and then die? That is such a cop out. If you don't have a problem with it being used as a mechanism to cover up holes in the story that's fine but acting like it doesn't exist is kind of silly.

    God I swear I have nightmares about him and Jack Butland. Bunch of bastards.

    Agreed. I really think that England need to embrace their young players and try and build a style that is similar to Spurs/Liverpool whose players make up a lot of the side. Rooney would just be an easy way to deter that. He had a great career for England but he offers nothing to the side that anyone else up front does. I think this will help him be appreciated by fans more as well, the longer he kept playing with worse and worse performances the more it would tarnish his accomplishments.
  10. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    Yeah because it is used as more of a plot device than just to save Jon, that is such lazy writing. Like I said, if the only purpose a character serves is to dig yourself out of a plot hole it's an awful character. Benjen seems to be tracking the wights and white walkers so him following their march would make perfect sense to me, at least a lot more than needless dying to tie off a crappy lose end. What would have been better story telling would be him meeting the group before they get cornered and then dying to save them instead of just miraculously turning up and saving Jon and dying for no reason. Even just a throw away line like "I'll help fight them when the time comes" or something would be an improvement on what is currently being offered. It might not be important to you but it's noticeable for a lot of people and it impacts my enjoyment of the show, especially compared to how carefully written it was before this season (and a bit of last). If that doesn't affect you that is totally fine but it does to others.
  11. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    I totally agree, it's going be extremely difficult to make a story without heroes getting out of difficult situations. I'm saying they are doing a much worse job of it than before in the show and it's really taking away from what made it great. I agree that the horse stare down thing at the Battle of the Bastards was dumb but he was about to die in that weird pit thing until the Knights of the Vale arrived. That wasn't just an army showing up out of the blue but a plot that had been advanced and actually talked about instead of just dragons and ravens flying faster than jet planes, Benjen Stark popping up at just the right time, Jon surviving hypothermia and being under water long enough for the whole horde of wights to disappear.
  12. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    He could still contribute when the battle against the Night King actually happens and if/when they break down the wall. So far Benjen has been used twice to rescue main characters and then seemingly was just killed off to tie up a lose end and nothing more. If a character was added into the show specifically to save two characters and do nothing else that is extremely poor writing.
  13. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    I'd argue there is a huge difference between Jon's plot armor in Battle of the Bastards and Hardhome compared to it in the last episode. One was done believably and the other had so many flaws in it's logic. Even when he was brought back to life Melisandre was there and it made sense how she could bring him back after the previous occurrences in the show. That's what he is talking about, it's okay that the good guys win even when they shouldn't but it should at least be remotely explainable.
  14. International Football Thread

    Didn't realize we didn't have one of these yet. Some pretty big news today, Wayne Rooney announces his international retirement. He leaves as record goal scorer for England. I think this is best for both sides. Rooney can probably use the days off now that he is getting older and England really need to let their younger players taking a leading role at this point. Rooney would just be taking minutes away from the likes of Kane, Alli, Rashford, etc.

    It's also worth noting that VVD just turned 26, he's got a lot of time left in his game compared to Kos, Vertoghen and Kompany. Even Luiz is 30. Chris Smalling doesn't deserve to even be in the conversation and will probably see himself out of the club by the end of next summer. I think VVD, to a club who really needs a defender, is worth 50m. His impact on Liverpool would be huge and the partnership with Matip could really improve that defense.
