Here we go again, another week and another post. Is this the start of a streak???
I took the time this weekend to do some hardcore Netflix watching. Here is the rundown:
- Better Call Saul, Season 1 – Having never watched more than twenty minutes of Breaking Bad everything in this show is new to me. I did have the understanding that this is a prequel to Breaking Bad and that little bit of knowledge helped some of the opening scenes make more sense. James McGill is a great character to watch and I really wish I could see the second season but I can wait for it to show up on Netflix as well.
- W/ Bob and Dave – A spiritual successor to Mr. Show, having never seen that program I have no idea how this one would compare. There were some funny moments but overall there wasn’t much worth watching in this show.
- 30 for 30: Four Falls of Buffalo – This show was fantastic. Not only does it chronicle the Buffalo bills run of four straight Super Bowl appearances(and losses) but it also gives the current thoughts of some of the key players. It was amazing to take a look back at what that team was able to do and be somewhat marveled by it. I’m not any team will ever do what they did.
- The Flash, Season 1 – The acting was good, the story was good but it had some problems. Certain points of the story didn’t fit together in my mind and the entire time travel bit just doesn’t work for me. I’m not sure if they can clean this up in season two or not but I’d like to find out.
Since The Division beta is over and the full game doesn’t release until March 8th, I need to kill of some gaming time. I’ve played some of the campaign for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare but find it nothing more than an average Call of Duty campaign. That’s not really a bad thing since so far this is one of the better or more interesting campaigns even if it is formulaically the same as many previous campaigns.
What I’m more disappointed in is the fact that I’ve been playing Destiny again. I decided to delete one of my warlocks and recreate a hunter. This was just to go through and see the hunter’s third subclass and I was pretty much done with the game and feeling burnt out again but then the Iron Banner came back. As much as I generally don’t like multiplayer gaming, Destiny’s is still very good aside from all the other flaws of the game. I’ve gotten some decent rewards so I don’t have much room to complain.
Although I am a huge Playstation fan, there are a few problems I have with the system.
- Lack of support for USB storage – Tip of the hat to the Xbox One for supporting external USB hard drives. I’d rather not rip the system apart to upgrade a hard drive.
- DS4 battery life – I thought the battery life was ok until I went back to my PS3 to play a game and realized I played the entire game without recharging the controller. This made me see how quickly the DS4 dies and made me sad to say the least.
- DS4 sticks – Months ago while paying a Destiny raid both of my controllers literally fell apart. One controller failed and then the other with the rubber falling off in my hands. Even after two years of gaming I was pissed.
At least I finally got to fix one of these issues. I did some research on the Internet and found that the recommended fix was to replace the sticks with the ones for an Xbox One controller. This advice could not be more correct. The stick feel and play great on the DS4. The added height and slightly smaller top work great. I only wish I had done this in the first place rather than buying the extensions that go on top of the sticks since they were clunking at best and more expense. O’well, live and learn.
Play on players, no matter what your game is.
