@illnoise33: Get it! GET IT RIGHT NOW! Seriously, I have it for PC, and it's phenomenal. I was actually going to purchase it again for PS4, but I was putting it off, since I've been playing other games. Now I have the perfect excuse to just buy it, and you should too. I'm not exaggerating. It's very fun, and 6 bucks is a steal.

@seikenfreak: Just a little extra advice. If you find out that the wireless signal isn't strong enough, you can always try a range extender. You'll have to set it up first, but then there won't need to be any other input from anyone else in the house. If it doesn't work, as sometimes they don't work very well, just make sure you have a good return policy wherever you get it. Just something to try instead of just giving up on it. Good luck.

I would definitely recommend Elfen Lied. That seems like it would fit squarely in the "mature" category, which is something you appear to be rather interested in.

Also, I totally agree with Cowboy Bebop being in the "masterpiece" category, and I also agree in that I didn't like Evangelion either.

The one thing that I can't wrap my head around is Baccano. I read a previous comment, and I didn't think the show was all that confusing. Granted, I haven't seen it in a long time, but still. The rest of that comment really doesn't make sense at all though. The fact that you accept that there are superpowers, but imply that it isn't realistic due to it being the 1930s, seems rather odd. Superpowers are pretty much timeless in their lack of being realistic, especially when it's superpowers gained by supernatural means. Suspension of disbelief is required for superpowers that exist in any time period, regardless of the means by which they were acquired. I just can't wrap my head around why you would potentially find it more difficult to suspend the disbelief of a "being that grants immortality through a magic elixir" in the 1930s, as opposed to the present or more recent past, if that's when the show took place. I suppose I'll have to put this in the "to each his own" category.

It looks to me like you've already answered your own question. The GTX 970 is one of the best cards out there at the moment. Not only does it provide great bang for your buck in terms of performance, but it also provides other benefits. It uses less power than a lot of the higher end cards available, so adding another one later should be no problem to anyone with even a moderate sized power supply. On top of that, it also runs cooler than a lot of other higher end cards, so again, adding a second one down the road shouldn't produce any problems relating to heat, and less heat also means, potentially, less noise.

This is the card I plan on getting as soon as I have the money. I currently have two HD 7850s, which run just about everything I throw at them at or near max settings, so there's no rush for me. However, if you're building a new PC or just need/want a new card and have the money, you can't go wrong with the 970. It's just that good.

I'm going to throw in my two cents with the "adopt, don't buy" crowd here. Buying an animal these days, at least when it's a dog or cat, is one of the douchiest things you can do.

One of my cats is a stray cat that was around my sister's dorm at college. She brought him home, and he's been here ever since. My other cat was mistreated as a kitten. The owners would leave her outside in the rain and snow, often without any food or water. We took her from them, and she's still here. In fact, after eating a hearty meal, and drinking some water I just put out for her, she decided to jump in my lap. She's been here purring contently for the last hour, even as I type this.

My whole point is that, animals that are adopted are not inferior to other animals. Adopt, don't buy. Chances are you're not going to regret it.

Its still messed up for me too. I was going to play Destiny last night, and it was down; however, PSN seemed to be working just fine. Now, everything is down. The what's new area won't even load for me, nor will the friends list, and when I go to the PS store, it just stays there on a blank screen.

@ajamafalous: I found this way funnier than I should have. It's not even that I hate Destiny. I rather enjoy it despite it's flaws, but you just don't get to use the word travesty often enough. Well played.

@humanity: I know what you mean. I finally have an abundance of ascendant shards/energy after all this time, and while they can still be used on other legendary gear, it's still dumb that they are useless on exotic gear. They should have allowed us to trade in like 10 or 12 ascendant shards/energy for an exotic shard, since you only have to use one exotic shard per exotic now. That would have taken the edge off, since a lot of people probably have a lot of ascendant shards saved up by now. It's weird that they added the new trading system for trading marks for standard upgrade materials (which was a great addition by the way), but they didn't think that it was going to irritate people when they have all those shards saved up and now they have to get some other material, like there weren't enough already.

Apotheosis. It's too bad there really aren't many opportunities to use it, although I did get an exotic helm in Destiny called the "Apotheosis Veil" that I plan on using. So, I guess that gives me a reason to say it or type it at least a few more times.

I'm always filled with nothing but hatred and disgust of the human race at my job. It's good to know that there are people out there that like their job, but at the same time, I get super envious and pissed off hearing about it. I need to stop reading this now.

I will say this. This is actually a good idea for a post. I hope I can find a job where I can at least not hate every second of it.
