What are you playing? What do you want to play? What are you looking forward to coming out soon?

I just beat the campaign mode on Killzone: Shadows Fall on PS4. Thought the graphics were really great on it. The story mode might have made a bit more sense if I'd played the previous KZ games, but it was good nonetheless.

Currently, I'm working on the COD: Ghosts campaign.

Really looking forward to The Show and Watch Dogs.

Anyone played Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes? I know it's a prequel and not quite a full game, but at 30 bucks, I thought about giving it a whirl.

Also, if you want to add me on PSN, it's TheRyanExpress86.

New teaser for NHL 15 is out. Gary Thorne and Bill Clement are out, Doc, Eddie O, and Ray Ferraro in.



Doc's voiceover in this gives me chills.

Titanfall is what all my xbox live friends are playing at the moment.

I've got to play a little but been to busy with other stuff to even turn it on lately.

I almost posted something about this yesterday, was wondering if any of you were affected. I had a hard copy pre-ordered through Gamestop already so it didn't affect me.

Either way...I'm so happy to have this game. So friggin' happy.

I made a left throwing/hitting 2B whose secondary is 1B/3B. Got drafted in the 1st round by the Royals so I went ahead and signed. My dude steals bases like a fiend.

I'm going to reroll tonight and just take whoever drafts me the first time. Those six goddamn years before free agency will make me MVP at least three times.

Redid everything, 13th overall to San Fransisco... I'm a Flying Squirrel?

I ended up scrapping my 2B because they ended up playing me at 1B all the time. So I made myself a CF. I didn't really try during the showcase so I got drafted in the 5th round by the Rays. I'm going to stick with this one but I've been playing my franchise quite a bit recently. I'm on dynamic difficulty and it's tough sledding at the plate right now.

Ugh, I've made it into the second half of the season, still starting with a few rest days when I'm slumping. I have seem to have hit the wall though, not progressing as well in the MLB, I think I needed more time in AAA, but at least this version I have a chance to get Rookie of the Year, nothing worse than coming up the third week of July and playing just enough to have no chance to catch up with the day one rookies... I need to use more of the contact hitting, less of the attempted bombs... since I can only homer against the Reds for some reason.

My overhaul of the Twins is coming along. Traded most of my 'old' parts away (save for Josh Willingham and Joe Mauer) for younger guys. The team is 23-20 midway through the year. I've traded for Javier Baez, Junior Lake, Lorenzo Cain, Stephen Piscotty, Joe Kelly, Dillon Gee, Aaron Crow, and Chris Carter (among others) for a start. I love wheeling and dealing.

162 games were not enough, we went to milwaukee for 163, and won the final wildcard with a 7 run top of the ninth.

One game at the D-Bags now.. 2/4 with a HR, we are in the real playoffs now.. Giants - Dodgers, how many stabbings in a five game series?

Wow, 3-0 and on to the NLCS.. to St. Louis..

KC v Cleveland in the ALCS.. Cleveland also a wild card..

Cardinals beaten in 6, bring on the Royals in the World Series!!!

The Royals took us 7 games, but we won!!! I won the World Series as a Rookie!!

On my Franchise, I've completely overhauled the Twins roster. I've traded Joe Mauer, Ricky Nolasco, Jason Kubel, Kevin Correa, and Kurt Suzuki (among others) all for younger MLBers and/or prospects.

1B- Chris Carter/Adam Lind
2B- Brian Dozier/Garin Cecchini
SS- Javier Baez/Danny Santana/Hai Juk Lee
3B- Garin Cecchini/Arismenday Alcantarra
C- Josmil Pinto/Eric Katz
LF- Josh Willingham/Adam Lind
CF- Byron Buxton/Lorenzo Cain
RF- Stephen Piscotty/Oswaldo Arcia

SP- Matt Moore, Chris Archer, Joe Kelly, Dillon Gee, Phil Hughes
Bullpen- Aaron Crow, Edward Mujica, Casey Fein, Jared Burton, Caleb Theilbar, Glen Perkins

We're .500 in mid-June and only 1 game out of the division lead. Just completed the draft and got a SP with A potential with the 4th overall pick. Mauer wasn't hitting for crap, otherwise I probably would have kept him, but now I have his huge salary off the books.

Yesterday I played and won a 14 inning game against the Brewers. Dillon Gee was outstanding but bullpen gave up the tying run. After that, they were nails and my pitchers wracked up 19 K's, including 3 apiece by Jean Segura, Ryan Braun, and Jonathan Lucroy.

I started a pitcher over the weekend. 6 wins in 7 starts in AA, straight up to the White Sox. Two wins, a loss, and a 26 out no-hitter (that I was LOSING) broken up on a shitty faggot bunt... and we walked off... asshole Cleveland.. sink in the lake

Some thoughts on being a White Sox pitcher...


... you literally have to throw no-hitters every game to get wins, they have virtually zero run support. (sorry viper)

I'm thinking of seeing if I can convert my CP to a SP. I was drafted 5th or 6th overall by the White Sox, A potential. I think it would be more fun to start.

I'm also finding out I should have gone back to school and did the showcase again with my CF. I just played quickly through, played terribly, and was drafted in the 5th round. I'm still in AA, was the All Star Starter, hitting .300, 7 HR, 42 RBI, 30 SB, but can't sniff a call up near the end of July. Hopefully soon.

I gotta get traded... Damn white sox

I throw a 1 hitter, get pulled after 8 innings... and get a no decision cause the closer lets up 5 hits in the bottom of the ninth... (Frank) yankees

8 starts 3 wins 0 losses 1.88 era 7 quality starts (won the non-quality start, only game with run support!) 57.1 ip 12 ER 6 BB 0.92 WHIP

pulling out my nails now, gonna roll around in salt
