  1. if you click on this topic you must post

    Sometimes I show up to lurk. RIP Max tho
  2. super fucking urgent topic

    I understood this topic.
  3. What games are you currently playing?

    Toukiden 2 on PC. It's Monster Hunter on PC. Join me.
  4. Not directly no, but if you want to build muscle, you're going to have excess weight. You're going to look fat and technically be fat with a lot of new muscle underneath that fat. That's when you cut, strip away fat and maintain the muscle mass. Source: I did this, but got lazy during cutting. EDIT: rei is right too, lifting while not eating properly isn't bad it just means you won't see lots of gains... but if you're a beginner lifter and you start doing compounds, you're going to get what's referred to as 'noob gains', which will see you become dramatically stronger (compared against what you could lift when you first started), but not actual powerlifter strong (or even what some could refer to as being 'pretty good'). It took me about 6 months of proper dieting to put on about 10kgs (22lbs) of what was mostly muscle, and I went from 60KG squats to 130KG, the noob gains got me to about 100KG before I really got into it.
  5. What Paul said. If you want to be big, you're going to be fat first.
  6. Poker. Vegas etc.

    I agree, there are nuances to it, but nothing you're probably going to master in a month. Understanding the basics and having extreme patience is the key to beating table casino fish. Or you know, just get drunk on $1 drinks and get a massive cooler every hour and be salty. That's what I tend to do in Sydney when I go play (without the fun $1 vegas drinks).
  7. Poker. Vegas etc.

    While Allen is correct, you need to understand you're probably going to be playing low stakes hold em with a bunch of fish. You can win just like any other casual there mostly by being a massive nit and betting when you have a hand. Source: mostly me, playing a bunch of fish in Vegas drinking $1 vodkas and winning money. But also my best friend is one of Australia's top players and he agrees with almost all low limit tables being exactly that.
  8. Hearthstone Random Talk Thread

    Arena sucks now. It's a goddamn crap shoot.
  9. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    I love the world emptiness. I really think that's how it was advertised and that's what I wanted. I have played every day after work until I go to bed and I haven't gotten bored yet. Hunting shrines and mountain climbing is really fun. Not to mention the small fun things like Yiga clan assassins and I think there's a boss on Mount Lanaryu and there's probably more. Also random Stone Talus and Hilox mini boss fights are fun. I will say I think they were very lazy with the design of towns. 100 years after the destruction of Hyrule and no one has bothered to expand their towns a little bit? Doubtful. Since Zelda has Ganon locked in Hyrule castle for 100 years I can't believe towns wouldn't be a little more sprawled outwards. But eh. This is definitely a fantastic game and a great step forward for Zelda. More actual side quests (like actual arching side-quests with dungeons) will make the next Zelda even better, and if they bring back dungeon items and less climbing (so the need for hookshot etc to reach certain places in the game) it will make the open world experience different from BotW (while maybe making it go back to being a little more linear). I'm sure there's a perfect balance somewhere.
  10. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    Don't forget there's $20 DLC with Hard/Hero Mode and more stuff coming later too.
  11. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    Yooka Laylee, Mario Odyssey, and Mario Kart will be a good start.
  12. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    That's basically the game. It basically feels like the main quest is a side quest and the game proper is finding all the heart pieces (where 1 shrine = 1 heart piece and 4 = heart container). The game definitely would've benefited from 6 or 8 Divine Beasts instead of 4, but they decided to give 1 to each race so I guess it works thematically. I'm not bored of it yet, even the shrines are fun and if you finish the game and put it down for a few months it's probably just as easy to start and love it again. I just really want the Master Sword. I wish I had more time. Also I cannot wait for Yooka Laylee next month.
  13. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    Even if the Switch ended up being a Zelda machine for a month until Kart and other games come out, it's still worth it. It's one of the most refreshing games I've played in a long time. It will win game of the year. Nothing will come close. It overshot the hype train by a mile. EDIT: Source - me - I won $1k gambling and then went and bought a Switch. I haven't bought a console since 2013 (I bought the PS3 specifically to play The Last of Us). It was worth it.
