  • Should the Cubs just cut Chatwood, and eat the money?

    It's only $38 mil or so for three years, so not a terrible contract, but still a lot for a player like him. mid to high 5 ERA at Coors, and mid to high 3s when away, and a lot of walks. When Darvish comes back from injury, they should trade Chatwood for anything if possible otherwise release him, and move Montgomery to the fifth spot... show more

I really don't like hard core RPG games, though I loved AC Origins, and that was the first in the series with true RPG elements, but nothing like Fallout or Shadow of Mordor. with that said, what are some other games you're playing that's either fun single player or multiplayer that doesn't get to repetitive? i also got super hot recently through GwG and have been going through that as well.

I currently have a laptop for five plus years, and i might get a desktop for my next PC. probably won't be a gaming PC, since I have a Xbox One X, and hopefully for something around $700. I already have a second monitor connected to my laptop, so i could reverse the two if i get a desktop for the time being. the main games i would like to play on PC if I do are games like Sims 4, roller coaster tycoon, and maybe GTA V. otherwise, i would just use it for multimedia and work. so something with 2 TB storage would be nice, if not more for my asking budget if possible. i multi task a lot, so a good amount of RAM would be nice too. have any ideas?

  • Madden gamers, is it worth it spending the extra $20 for the special edition game?

    when you pre order and get the special edition for $20 more, you get some packs and other bonuses for MUT and other modes. is it worth it for $80 total?

    Apparently, there is a planned series coming later this year titled "Treadstone", which is a prequel of sorts on the origins of the agents in that black ops CIA program. Contrary to the critics and some fans, I actually enjoyed The Bourne Legacy. it'd make sense for that universe to "recreate" Bourne via medicine, and Bourne's actions exposing and threatening the new programs. It'll be interesting who they cast of course, but I think a TV series could be better off than spin off movies with different actors. Gives more time to build character, background and plot.

  • Will Congress finally do something about these school shootings?

    Or will they just sit there and tweet "thoughts and prayers"? Trump made some strides after Parkland, with ideas to arm volunteer teachers and staff, raise age to 21, ban bump stocks, and even take guns away before due process. BUT, since GOP controls Congress, they have done NOTHING.

    There's no wall running or boost jumping anymore. everything's on the ground. so, it's kind of like black ops 2.5, with with style game play of bo 3. as rumors suggested, they have a battle royale mode, dubbed Blackout. and that actually looks cool. the map looks huge, and everything is at your disposal. to me, that's what PUBG should've been in the first place, but with a call of duty feel. They also brought zombies back. Looks more like WW II zombies similar to world at war. Multiplayer looks pretty much the same as BO3, though i'm sure there are new weapons, classes, etc. Slated for release mid October, with no price point announcement, though expect the $60 standard. I'll probably wait for a sale around the holiday season to pick it up, or at least put it on my wish list and maybe a family member or friend will get it for me. as I usually do when games release so close to the season, I can wait around two months. Black Ops II is already back compat on Xbox One, so there's no announcement of a remastered version being partnered with BO4. and i doubt MW2 will come with it since they are different studios. though, since BO4 has no single player campaign, and MW2 RM is rumored to NOT have multiplayer, it would be interesting if those two were to partner up together upon release. so, we'll see what happens.

    But you also lose Russell in the trade, and the possibility of NOT extending or re signing Machado in the off season. the Cubs would probably have to give up either another player on the roster, like Almora or Happ, or some pitching in the minors. Last year, it was reported the Orioles turned down a trade of Montgomery, Almora, and Russell for Machado, as they were hoping to be competitive this year. Would you be OK with that trade now? We could use Almora's defense in CF, and he's getting better at hitting consistently. or Maybe throw in Schwarber instead of Almora, as he really should play in a AL team, as he is not the greatest defender in LF. I would pull the trade if it guarantees us another WS win. while you lose players and years of control, you just have to decide if you want to win now, which this team is built to do, or the opportunity to win multiple years down the road, but may fall short too. I trust Theo and Co in their ability to always find people to take over in middle INF spots should such were to happen, or maybe bring up Bote full time, as he's done well in his run so far in the majors.
