Just some advice. Perhaps try to play games that are more turn based that don't require twitch response. I wish you the best luck in recovery.

Brads DOTA stuff, and as of late Quick Looks. I just find QL's to be super dull and boring these days. Unless it's a live show of some sort I just don't care much for it. And even then I often feel rather meh. I hate that I don't like GB's content much any more outside of the odd video here and there. I miss having Ryan and Vinny around.

@carryboy: @demoskinos: @corruptedevil: IDK. I haven't really been watching wrestling as of the last few months. I just listen to the powerbomb cast before a ppv and see if it seems interesting enough to watch. My dad always gets them so I thought I would sit in and watch. None of it really interested me. Just don't like any of the stars wwe is pushing right now so the whole thing was rather lackluster in my eyes. Maybe without the context of build up it losses something idk.

That PPV was painful to watch. The last match was even more so. On the one hand, yay for seeing cena get his butt kicked, but boo for how terrible of a match it was. Lesner looked like he was about to pass out after a couple throws. I kept praying for the fans to start a this is boring chant. Also, that kid screaming lets go cena was like nails on a chalk board.

@corruptedevil: @billymagnum: That's what I thought too, but it has no other issues. I can use astro file manager to search for any file on the sd card and load it. I got hundreds of hours of podcasts that can play from the sd card with Beyond Pod. I can even load astro file manager to the folder where my music is stored and load it one song at a time into any player, but when I go to the player itself nothing in heaven or hell can make my music show up in those dang apps.

Was just wondering what were some good music players for android phones. I'm using the HTC One VX and after trying every music play in the top 10ish on the market none of them are able to read the music on my SD card. A couple do when I first install them, but as soon as I restart the phone it all goes up in smoke. The last one even decided to delete my whole music collection which I now have to try and rebuild after my back up hard drives on my PC died at the same time.

I tried some streaming apps, but they all suck butt, are not available in Canada, or are useless to me since I don't have data on my phone.

I can't believe none of you guys mentioned Full Spectrum Warrior! That's what this game is based around! They even said in the QL that it's heavily inspired by that game. God I wish they made more games like that. So much fun.

I started with D&D 4e by listening to the penny arcade podcasts from the start. By the time I was done listening to them all I had a good grasp of the rules and from there I just went online and watched videos of people playing to fill in the rest. Then I skimmed over the books to fill in any gaps I was still missing and learned as I played by DMing back and forth with a friend over skype and roll20.net. Also, listen to the critical hit podcast on the major spoilers site. It's the single best D&D thing going.

Here's my suggested order for learning how to play D&D 4E:

  1. Penny Arcade Podcasts- Start from the beginning as they explain a lot of the rules at the start as one of the players goes in completely blind. And avoid clicking on each episodes picture art until after you have listened as it spoils stuff that happens in that episode.
  2. Grab some of the books and start reading them. Plenty of locations online to get your hands on them. Assuming you are evil alignment in real life. *cough* pirate *cough*
  3. I then suggest grabbing a friend who has done steps one and two and just start playing and dicking around. Make little mini adventures for each other to play and switch on and off being the DM. It seems scary at first, but it's super rewarding and is the best way to learn the game.
  4. At this point you should have a pretty solid understanding of the game. Congratulations! Now you can argue why edition X is so much better then edition Y and why people who like edition Y are all terrible people.

I suggest just enveloping yourself in all the D&D goodness that is out there on the internet for you to explore and find. The official D&D youtube channel has hours and hours of videos they recorded of the guys who make the game playing it. Some of the later stuff is for 5E, so to avoid confusing yourself I would just stick to the older stuff until you have a solid grasp on the edition you are trying to learn.

I personally suggest going with D&D 4E over other stuff because it's so popular and has been around so long that there is a wealth of resources and information out there that makes learning it much easier then other things. 3.5 has quite a bit as well, but not nearly as much as 4E. I see some Pathfinder stuff as well, but I'm not into it so I can't comment.

Seriously. Listen to The Critical Hit Podcast. It's the best! It starts on episode 8 because they did some test stuff before hand before they committed to making it an ongoing thing. So do't worry about 1-7. Nothing important is in there. It's on their site somewhere, but I can't remember where. It's in some weird corner if you want to poke around and hunt for it.

Quit after my free month. Nothing about the game was grabbing me, and it had none of the awesome personality that was in those trailers leading up to the release. At least not enough.
