“You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you're hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!” - Rocky Balboa

So I just caught up with Arrow. Great show, especially for comic fans, but something bothers me. (Arrow spoilers follow) … … … So Sarah Lance is alive and is Black Canary. And her father Police Officer (formerly detective) Lance knows that she and Oliver are dating. And he also knows that Sarah is Black Canary. And he knows that Arrow and Black Canary are working together. Yet he can't put two and two together! This is why he shouldn't be a detective lol

So I marathoned Gurren Lagann this weekend. That was totally not what I expectd lol. It was fun and way over the top, even though it still hit a lot of the tropes. I thought it was going to get boring after the timeskip, but nope. It got a little weird at the end, but I guess that's inevitable when things escalate quickly

It is 10 days before a feast. There are 1,000 barrels of wine for the feast. One of the barrels is poisoned and whoever drinks from it will die after 7 days. You only have ten wine-tasters. How do you determine which barrel is poisoned before the feast begins?

Posted on r/PS4: Infamous: Second Son - is it more than just a pretty face?

Considering getting a PS4 because of all the very nice Infamous:SS screen shots going around, but is the game more than just a pretty face?

I'm a bit bothered by the Kill Screen review: http://killscreendaily.com/articles/reviews/infamous-second-son-shows-what-ps4-capable-and-nothing-more/

I finished Infamous 1 but not Infamous 2 coz I kind of got bored with it being more of the same. Would I get bored with SS after admiring the pretty graphics for a while?

When they come out with lists like these, these are just the announced ones right? We can still expect more exclusives announced during E3?

I like that there's a lot of titles scheduled for this year, but I feel like they need more big exclusive titles to better differentiate from the competition among the AAA crowd of gamers
