When or hey why not, if, post-government trained, now private, security forces are formed into the Make America Great Again Secret Police & you’re asked to flag everyone that expresses disapproval are you gonna do it to fight “the Deep State” which previously to 2016 meant ANYONE who used the government & corruption for their own means, like a certain orange guy using imminent domain, pyramid schemes, & illegal labor in conjunction with having to be a mob associate, as it’s open knowledge that you didn’t have casinos, & build tall buildings on the east coast without working with the mob. The paper trails are undeniable.

The Deep State has ALWAYS been the Rich Using Politicians. If you think ‘oranges’ is a renegade going against this Deep State, WHaT is ‘badHairDayEveryDay’ and the money worshiping GOP cult finally getting off their asses to do? ….Give the Billionaires who run the Deep State their Biggest Christmas Present Ever! They don’t really need the money, but TheRe’s theee PRiORiTY. Super-duper-uber-Wall?,… nope. Cyber security?,… off the radar. Coming loss of jobs due to A.I.?,… never got to the radar.

There’s not pictures of the Clintons & Trumps playing golf & giggling at yet another one of Trump’s weddings just because……

The preceding is Literally SuBVERSiVE MaTeRiaL Used To Literally UnDeRMiNE the 45th President of The United States of America with HIstory. When asked, Will You Report Me/Flag Me for what they’ll probably cloak As simply data that will be used for political campaigning?

Here’s a wonderful Academy Award Nominated Frank Capra film about a grassroots populist movement based on befriending & helping your neighbors being co-opted by the rich for the rich who are looking to expand their sides’ control over the entire country. It’s one facet of the Deep State as seen through the eyes of 1940s Capra.
The villain is a rich guy that buys a newspaper as a part of a means to promote his hard-liner political agenda. His younger family relative runs a private police security force.
It’s a great film about America & what’s truly great about it.

      This is a historical perspective. My outlook is based on undeniable historical precedent & current events. There’s nothing paranoid about being concerned with a political leader who promised to break the Constitution & praises a political leader who is presently killing his own people, in mass murdering numbers, without judicial process.

        Why do you pretend so much? Why can’t you handle simple actions like going to the store without throwing a fit? Why do you grab on to the nuttiest apocalyptic whatever that mirrors the veracity of the belief in a flat Earth?

        Hell it’s a safe bet, that you’re the one drawing a government check while accusing me. I’ll probably owe on my tax return this year.

        I’ve been installing 2″ solid oak flooring with my neighbor this week so I’m fine on bills. Last week we painted. Sorry, I’m not gonna punch a goddamned clock if I can help it, & I’d rather live out of trashcans than have to deal with anything more than the DMV.

        I think you can answer the question of why you are the way you are, parenting aside, by telling yourself out-loud repeatedly, “I’m on a pirate ship! I’m on a pirate ship!” at the same time with your tongue sticking out.

    Wouldn’t be able to, because I would be turned in and probably killed because I’m not going without a fight. And with this post, they can come get me in the first wave. Not even surprised if this turns out to actually happen or at least they attempt to. Build up the most powerful country in the world to hand the keys to a lunatic. This is feeling kind of like Injustice. (The comic/video game story of where Superman becomes a ruthless dictator.)

        @luftballooneyegouge If you like the newer Mortal Kombat games, sure. It is made by the same people, just without the blood and gore. If you don’t know about those either, I personally feel like it is meh. I love the story and DC in general, which is why I got it, but it isn’t one I’d keep playing. There are two games out. Not sure about the comics. I’m also curious if the comics cover what is in the games. I do know there is information in the comics not in the games. Some comics tie in the middle of the two games and I think there is some comic that covers the beginning part. I wish they’d make it all easier to understand, but I do really like the story. Fighting games that rely heavily on combos and have special meters just aren’t my thing. I make a couple of exceptions, obviously.

        That’s too bad. You could have some seriously twisted fatalities with the comic backstories, especially if they let you play the villains. I grew up on pulp print 70s & 80s Marvel mostly. I haven’t played Mortal Kombat since sega genesis.

        @luftballooneyegouge I couldn’t do Burnout Paradise. Burnout 3 and Burnout Revenge though? Omg… So good. Had such good music too.

        They did a Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe game. The MK people and the DC villains did fatalities. The DC heroes did brutalities. It was a T rated game though, so it didn’t get gory. Just Scorpion burning people straight into bones type of stuff. Man, that T rating has changed, huh? lol. Joker did a fatality where he pulls out a gun, pull the trigger, a BANG flag pops out, he throws it down and laughs, and then he’d pull another out and blast the person in the face. They had to change it though to where the camera zoomed on him during that shot. Guess it was considered to be too much. Too bad that DC didn’t allow for more. They got some pretty messed up comic scenes and cartoon scenes at times. Not sure why a game is so different.

        Gotta say though, Harley Quinn has a super move in Injustice 2 that is pretty brutal. Like I wasn’t expecting it and there was a OH!! said:

        I don’t have very many T rated games.
        Somebody gave me the UMD for Burnout Revenge for my old PSP, but I don’t think I got the instructions, because I could never figure out exactly what I was supposed to do, so I skipped that one on the console. I use the Paradise demo to wake me up when I get drowsey by just trying to hit as many signs as I can as fast as I can.

        @luftballooneyegouge I get that. I just preferred the older ones because you go so much faster. It was tough in that aspect. Paradise had a lot of races where you could go down any street you wanted to get to your destination, and I always messed up, lol. I like a set track with maybe some short cuts. Being able to hit dead end roads in a race is unfortunate. Paradise was good to just mess around since it was open world. I think Driver: San Francisco is nice like that too. You can just go and drive, and you can also switch from your car to any car on the road. The wrecks aren’t as good obviously, but I found it nice for driving.

        Yeah I noticed I can’t find future-racers anymore. I loved old Wipeout & Xgra on ps2. There’s wipeout for vita, but I don’t trust handhold controllers to take any more abuse than a console controller & who wants a disposable system. I still have my simulated wood atari. Ps2s going bad put me off of sony. Now I’m addicted to the xbox controller’s feel, but goldpass? Never!

        @luftballooneyegouge Thinking about it, I haven’t seen any future ones either. I remember one I used to play with a friend on the original PlayStation. It was some type of vehicle that could hover over the ground, but you raced mainly over water, though there was one course where you are racing over lava near a volcano. You had PS2’s go bad? My Xbox 360 did that with the red ring of death. I had one PS2, but I had like three Xbox 360’s. PS2 was probably my favorite console based on all of the games it had that I liked and how it had backwards compatibility out of the gate. Loved still playing WWF SmackDown! or Twisted Metal 2 on it. Xbox controllers are very good though. Xbox One’s is probably the best controller. Feels so good.

        When 360 came along, I wasn’t going to get one. I figured there were so many PS2 games I hadn’t played, I’d just play that, & for new graphics I’d play pc games. I noticed really quickly that console games have a better controller feel on alot of games, where at the time pc gaming was kind of secondary to the gamer-business of consoles. When I got Crysis it was fun, & of course a shooter and a mouse rock, but using a keyboard in conjunction felt sterile. So I notice on that game it’s compatible with a pc 360 controller, so I go get one, & it’s heaven. I’d use a mouse with the right hand and use the left side of the 360 controller with my left, freeing me from the keyboard.
        When I got GTA San Andreas for my pc, the graphics were way better than PS2, but the controls were worse even with the 360 controller. About the same time my friend had gotten a fat chubby PS3, and left it with me to go to Columbia. San Andreas looked great, and the controls felt pretty trippy and cool, but I had adjusted to the 360 feel, and the PS3 controller made my hands achey. By the time I got a 360 the red-light of doom wasn’t a thing anymore & they were $70 used. I have a white one that doesn’t read discs anymore that I use to run youtube on an old crt TV that’s too damn heavy to get rid of. I have a newer type one for gaming.
        I quit playing games on PC because I hated configuring the graphics when I’d get games, and just loading them on to the system was tedious opposed to putting in a disc and going straight into play. I hated online playing on pc for free, so there’s no way I was going to pay for it, although GTAV makes it verrrry tempting.

        @luftballooneyegouge One of my red rings was covered by Microsoft. You just contact them, they send a box, and you ship it off to be repaired. The second one wasn’t. That one just broke, so I got an Elite, which was a black Xbox with a bigger hard drive. Games were a bit simpler then. Didn’t have to install them like you do the Xbox One.

        That half mouse, half controller setup seems difficult. Been working on getting a PC. Have never had a gaming PC before and a friend of mine got all into it. Kind of want to try and join him with that. Stuff is expensive though.

        I liked GTA 5, but I just couldn’t get into the online stuff that much. I mean, they are still coming out with new stuff on the Xbox One/PS4/PC. It’s just that the public servers, everyone wants do kill you. You pop in and you are going to get gunned down or ran over repeatedly. Could get friends and make a private lobby. That is fun at times. Have four friends though and could do heists, which I never did outside of the first one that only needed two. The online races are pretty fun. I forget how it is on the 360 because of where the updates stopped, but I know on the One, those races got crazy. All kinds of tracks built into the sky. Races that change your vehicle mid race when you hit certain checkpoints. I usually just watch people play them though.

        That’s why I won’t get a gold pass. I read this article written by a guy who was really really proud that, as far as he knew, he was one of the first to play online games in ways just to ruin it for everybody else. The article was pre-2016 but it had his twitter, so I had to look. Sure enough, his twitter was all trump support.

        @BelleMadre I was playing a Street Fighter game as a kid once, and my mom said sure when I asked if she wanted to play. She had the controller backwards and upside down smashing buttons and she beat me a number of times. My aunt played me in a wrestling game once. She was just mashing buttons and I could not stop it. I don’t think she won, but she did get a lot further than she should have. I could not counter it. I was so confused. It is a legitimate strategy. Honestly, it is kind of how those games are for me at first too. Just press things until I see a move work. If two work back to back smoothly, try to do that again and maybe make a third move hit. I’m trash at learning the combos. It also just makes the game less fun going for that. It is too calculated. I like to go off feeling in the moment, lol. There is a game called Dead or Alive 4 that I loved because there were so many small, easy combos, so I didn’t have to learn a giant string of combos to do good. I could do many random little ones and be almost as good. The countering system was also great. Being able to stop someone’s punches and kicks and reversing them, it was just so good in my opinion. I apologize if I lost you at all with that, lol.

        @Yin mostly following :D you had me at mashing buttons lol. its my jam! i cant remember the combos at all. and he is really good at a Couple so those are his go to moves lol. im lucky if i remember to block
        i dont like him playing real shooter games at home (he plays at friends, thats where you do things you arent allowed to at home :D) but i was the one who bought him a bunch of mortal kombat and some super hero vs mortal kombat game? last year. and i mean he grew up with spider man movies and star wars. he isnt shy of the graphics, altho he is 10 so i am still into limiting. he LOVES assassins creed but gets frustrated . but games arent always made to be easy right?

        im open to suggestions!

        he has gotten back into ‘old school’ wii games, mario, cart, angry birds :D mostly cuase those are games i will play with him. tho super mario stresses me out

        id rather jam buttons meaninglessly if it means having fun with him :D

        @BelleMadre Yea, that is Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. It was the MK people against Superman, Batman, and friends. I liked the idea of the game, but it played weird.

        Assassin’s Creed is probably my favorite series of all time. It can get frustrating though. Most of the games are fun to play, but there are missions in them that just don’t allow the way the player wants to play. I like to fight, but you need to be stealthy and not be detected. That is hard for me, lol. The story is pretty fantastic though.

        Cannot go wrong with Mario Kart. I think the last one I played though was Mario Kart Double Dash on the Gamecube. Though, this new one out on the Switch has my attention. I mean, not enough for me to actually buy the console just for it, but it does look nice. It has online play. That is sick. I get liking fighting games more though in that sense. It is easier to stay in the game with fighting/button mashing games. Unless you are playing against a pro, you always have a chance to do well even if it is by luck.

        You ask about easier games. I thought about the Lego games, like the Lego Marvel Super Heroes or Lego Batman, but even those can be a little tough at times. Well, it is tough if you are looking to do everything and find all of the collectibles (which is my jam.) The story of the game isn’t bad since you can die and instantly come back. I get how a Lego game may not be very appealing to a kid that likes Mortal Kombat and Assassin’s Creed though.

        @Yin you called it with the lego games! he loves those! he likes the challenges but likes the free play. the freedom of it. plays with friends on double screen sort of thing? he saves up allowence or gifts and buys them when they appear on play station sale days, fridays i guess. and they take a while for him to actually work through.

        yes, thats the thing i am learning with assassins creed, its like, doesnt allow for that the same? he was so frustrated the other day because he managed to successfully finish a challenge (or something) and then accidentally selected replay level? or something? man was he pissed :D

        he likes minecraft but is more interested in exploring aesthetics of demos for that or watching youtubers play it :D lately seems that way anyway. im ok with the break from that obsession for sure

        there Might be a refurbished wiiU in his future, partly cause it was half the price of a switch or whatever. and partly cause he is 10, he doesnt need Everything… but i thought itd be a sweet christmas present. so he was asking for splatoon? what is that about i wonder? mama needs to research lol id like to pick up a couple of games to put under the tree for that… but not just replays of what he already can use right?

        cant say he is deprived !i just wish i enjoyed them more. but our quality time together can be spent playing board games anyway.

        @BelleMadre Yea, it’s called split screen. Though in Lego games, or at least from the ones I have seen, it is the weirdest split screen I have ever seen. Like, the partition can rotate there in the middle depending on where the players are located. If the players are to the right and left of each other, it parts down the middle. If they are up and down on the screen, it is parted across. While helpful to determine where the players are from one another, it does my eyes and head in sometimes, lol.

        I remember there being some optional missions within missions that you can do to earn achievements/trophies (depending on the console.) I gotta say, I couldn’t be bothered with all of that. If that is what he was doing, he has a lot more patience than I do, lol. There are some games with Animus challenges, which the Animus is the device the character in present day is in in order to life through the events of the past using DNA. There is a challenge thing that basically puts that past person in a simulation so you can practice and go for medals by beating times and points. Some of that is hard too. I had to look up the best routes on YouTube, lol. I wasn’t about to figure that out on my own. I can get the frustration losing that progress though. I like that face you put where he is pissed. You happy/laughing about it? lol. Just looked that way.

        Minecraft reminds me of real life Legos. I was always terrible with them. I have no imagination to build things. There is a group of people I do watch play it though on YouTube. Achievement Hunter. They play all sorts of games, but usually play Minecraft on Fridays. They cuss a lot though and whatnot (and have dildos around the office just messing around) so he may not watch those people, but I get watching people. There are some games that I just don’t want to play myself but enjoy going through by watching others. Some people also just make it so entertaining. Like, I could hate the game, but they do things in it that make a watchable video.

        I thought the idea of a WIi U was dumb at first since it seemed so close to a Wii and that big controller screen pad thing was weird, but I watched Achievement Hunter play a few games and kind of wished I had it instead of a Wii, lol. There is a Mario game where someone can be playing on the pad just messing with or help the players on the TV. It had a cool Pokemon fighting game that was made by the people who made Tekken. (Pokken Tournament) I think it has the Mario Kart game that is also on the Switch, Mario Kart 8. Splatoon is a shooting game, but instead of bullets, it is ink. Players are squid people that shoot colored ink at each other. The object I think is to cover the map/level as much as possible in your color ink. You can also move faster if you swim in the ink and I think it also replenishes your ammo swimming in it.

        Yea, my uncle used to play some video games with me as a kid. There were some fighting games on the Super Nintendo and the Sega. There was a wrestling game on the original Nintendo and the Nintendo 64. We beat the Super Nintendo game multiple times, we beat the Sega one at least once, but it was a lot harder to get to the end and not be sent back levels. I beat him in the wrestling games usually, though the original Nintendo one was hard. The controls made no sense, lol. There were some board type games we played. Don’t Wake Daddy was one. It was a random game. Roll the dice, spin the wheel, press the alarm clock button, and if dad pops up, you go back to the beginning. Also, Don’t Break the Ice. That was my jam. You put these ice pieces in, put a little dude on top in the middle, and take turns whacking a piece of ice through. Knock the dude through and you lose. Somewhat Jenga-like.

        @Yin i find it really hard to deal with the frustration induced by video games. cause i know for that moment its hard to control what a person is feeling. and i guess ive lived with fellas who will break a controller tossing it in anger. and i dont want a repeat of that. so it stresses me out. im trying to model to him how to deal with frustration, like when the stupid vaccuum cleaner i just bought keeps over heating. not throwing that as much as id like to lol thats when i say its time to put it down, take a breather. i dont laugh at him in the moment, but i guess sitting here at the computer thinking about how pissed off kids get at games, it makes me laugh a bit? or cringe and grimace? maybe thats what i mean. in the moment im more likely to say Hey Take Breather! the only times i laugh at him are when he is doing goofy dances trying to make me laugh, i promise. (or when i hear him swear and he thinks i didnt hear and then looks at me to see if i did and its really hard not to so then i grimace and then we both awkwardly read the situation …

        i was thinking about taking the wii into my room to use for netflix if i get another tv, right now i just watch on my computer tho so is cool. every year i end up getting him some video game system upgrade, but its never the newest one. for now, he being 10 i can tide him over with whatever i can afford, and its like his Big present. so im cool w that. if that is what he is in to. i promise i balance it out with some art supplies and books! and he still likes some toys. legos he Likes but i find unless i sit and guide him through it, he doesnt really build what the sets are? he makes some cool structures on his own tho.

        i remember my brother playing all the old school wrestling games, and sega etc. but he wouldnt let me play cause i wasnt serious about it. thassalright.

        (dont wake daddy sounds like a game some youtubers he watches play. one guy pretends to be asleep/eyes closed, and the other guys, the ‘kids’ have to sneak up and grab something from him without getting hit with nerf whcih he is blinding shooting? those are pretty funny to watch ill admit. must be inspired by the board game! sometimes i get sick of youtube and hearing about it all day, but i can guide what he watches, what he is allowed to watch (no super swearing… no gun game violence – except nerf i guess. he really likes GuaveJuice, and that is hilarious but i can only stand a few minutes and then im over it. back to the dishes mom lol)

        squid people and ink hahahaha perfect. well it follows my no real gun games rule clever kid. sounds like i might even give it a go with him! actually glad you mentioned pokemon game! he would like that i think! he is definitely into his pokemon cards, the whole school seems to be. i never put pokemon go on my phone so he felt deprived, so the ones i am seeing on line for wii u right now look alright. ill be going to a store that sells previously played , he wont care if its not new as long as it works, and that way he might get more than one if i dont have to pay full price. see what they have.

        i just looked up dont break the ice, that looks like fun! we used to play this one game that was a monkey throwing things at a plastic tree to see how many paper bananas we could knock off or something. those were fun !

        right now we play a lot of this basic dice game called Monsters and Maidens. in another year or two we will probably get into more complex games. some star wars monopoly is a good time too. and of course uno. cant beat uno. i work hard all day so its nice to sit with him and play a game at the end of it all. good old fashioned bonding time. he usually gets a bit of screen time after we get home and have had a snack. then i can chill a bit too. then i make dinner and then its screens off and game or book time.

        anyway thats my story for today. today he is fighting a cold and watching teen titans while i do chores. lifes alright for a kid!

        @BelleMadre Yea, I understand that type of frustration. Was playing Halo 2 or 3 a lot at one point. Modem kept going off so I’d get kicked from the game and everything. I may or may not, but definitely did, punched it (which is when my problem initially started.) I mean, it worked fine after that, for a while, lol. Opened that flood gate and it was then the go to answer for a while. It got to a point where the inside of the modem was broken, but it still worked. Just you could hear metal jingling in it when you shook it a little. I don’t do all that anymore. All the stress from school on top of the stress reliever not working right, it just wasn’t good at that time. Dancing to make people laugh, huh? I still do that crap, lol. Well, it is more of a jiggle. Like, how those birds get happy and jiggle their neck and head, that is just my whole body, lol. Jiggle and make eye contact with someone until they laugh and ask what I’m doing.

        I got spoiled as a kid, especially with the game consoles. I love them for it, but I do think that it may have not been the best move. We lived in trailers nearly the whole time but I managed to have an Xbox, PS2, Gamecube, and a Gameboy Advanced all at the same time. Now, maybe the prices were lower since there is a chance that they released way before that, but still. That is a lot. I think the Gamecube was the new one. Like, I had to have Super Smash Bros. Melee. It was a must. I got a game magazine that I marked the page so I could look at the screenshots of the game all day. Again, I do love them for it and how could you not, but I do think maybe there should have been more limits. Feels kind of bad growing up and realizing what they did for me while still living in a trailer park or some trash apartment that cost too much itself.

        Yea, as I said before, I could not do the Lego thing. I had some of those and had some kit called K’NEX. It came in a big, yellow suitcase like box that had a booklet in it showing how to make some stuff. I just couldn’t really get interested, but I loved watching my brother make a few thing. The car/dirt buggy was probably my favorite. I had a friend that would mess with them. He loved building. It was funny when I got that present. It was either close to Christmas or my birthday, I think birthday. I went to my mom’s house, which was two doors down from where I lived with my aunt and uncle. I was in the living room going towards the kitchen and saw a yellow case under the bar behind some stools. I asked what that was and she was like, “Welp, happy birthday.” and explained that it wasn’t suppose to be sitting there still and she forgot about it, lol.

        Man, school kids are still into Pokemon cards? That stuff became a hit here in America basically when I was in elementary school. I thought it’d die down, or go to something else. I heard Yo-kai Watch got popular, though not sure if it is that popular here. I still got a lot of my cards. A lot of Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! cards. I tried to keep the more rare ones in a binder in some sleeves. Yea, I usually got to GameStop and buy some used games. As long as the disc is still in decent shape. You can always get a warranty as well just in case.

        The monkey game reminded me of one that I had forgotten about. To a bit, but found the name, Rock Jocks. You have little dudes with stretchy arms that are hooked to the top of this mountain. Not sure how the game is played but you put different animal on the person’s backpack and other animals which weighs them down and they get lower. That was basically all I did with it. That and look at the box art because it was funny. I’d do that with a number of board games. Just mess with the pieces. Like Mouse Trap. I would just build the contraption. Or that toilet game where you flush the peas (Called Big John.) Weird games, man.

        Never heard of Monsters and Maidens, though from this one thing, it sounds like a simple version of Dungeons and Dragons. I had a Pokemon Monopoly. Never played that right either. I was a bad sport as a kid. Had to play by trash rules I made up. Like, the four big spots on the board, we could only get one each. In video games, like in Goldeneye 007, I told them that I’d only play if they didn’t kill me. I was not fun to play with.

        I love Uno. I mean, I never played with actual cards. I only played on Xbox. Achievement Hunter played that game. They put the score to I think 500. They didn’t know what they did until a few games in. It took them over three hours. They just wanted to go home at one point and had to call or answer calls from their girlfriends and wives telling them they are going to be late. They called the video, Uno: The Movie. It is actually on IMDb. I think it was listed as a horror movie for the longest time, now a comedy. They had the rules where I think if you played a 0, you swap hands with anyone you want. If a 3 or 7, it swaps everyone’s hands left or right. I could have gotten that wrong, but swapping hands like that was happening, a lot. Had a lot of stacking the cards that make people draw or skip a turn. One dude plays a draw 2, but the next guy has a draw 2 and so he plays it as well so the next guy draws 4. It was really rude. Honestly, it is hard to watch that video now. It was filmed the night of the presidential election and they talk about it during. I get the same sinking and nauseous feeling I actually did that night.

        Cyborg and Raven are the best Teen Titans. Booyah!

        @BelleMadre Take as much time as you need. No rush from me. Hope he starts feeling better as soon as possible. Being sick sucks. Well, I hate the headaches in particular. I don’t take those well. Netflix is pretty nice. Needs to chill with taking good things off and Disney needs to chill on taking things off of it or keeping things from it, but yes, it’s nice.

        @Yin thanks! we are doin ok, just a bit of a situation to manage, but thats mom life… netflix is good for us, but sometimes something gets taken off and i am really disappointed. wonder if certain things are worth owning, you know? maybe one day…

        tomorrow is my christmas shopping day, im going to try a previously played shelf first and head to a big new store in the afternoon, so see what i can stir up. i only have 3 days off before christmas, so im hoping to do most of my shopping tomorrow. like i said, see what i can stir up. he is relatively easy to please in this sense so im confident. hopefully i can find some decent games without paying full price. he has been trying to talk me into halo games, since they are shooter games but not as realistic? im considering caving in If i find one used. give in a little :D

        we will see. there is this one comic and collectors store that i like going to for presents, always has cool stuff, maybe a different kind of board game.

        i think kids his age collect and trade pokemon cards more than they actually play with them? is that normal? i dunno. he has a binder full, and loves getting more, giving away doubles and yes, putting aside the rare ones in a special sleeve book. sure. why not :D

        @BelleMadre Halo takes place in the distant future. The soldiers wear full body armor, which a lot of people not into games mistake them for being robots/cyborgs. Them being human use human weapons. None of those are current real weapons, but I can’t say that they aren’t realistic since they do shoot bullets. It is just that they are a bit more futuristic looking. The aliens and robotic people (the robots are newer in Halo 4 and 5) use energy based weapons. They shoot light out basically. I would say that it Halo would be more suited for kids than Call of Duty. I don’t know how you are with sexual stuff though. Like… There is an AI in the game, named Cortana. She is solid blue, but there are versions of her where she does look kind of naked or close to it. If you search ‘Cortana Halo 4’ that is as far as it goes. Halo 5 (on the newer console, Xbox One) the game is actually rated Teen for the first time instead of Mature and she is covered more and there is less blood overall.

        Wish I was into comics more. Just seem like they are a lot of money since there are so many releasing all of the time, I don’t know where to start, and I’m not even sure if we have a comic book store. I could go to Books A Million since they do have some, but I’m not sure how recent those are. I just listen to a certain YouTube guy who goes through the series with summaries and with some of the artwork.

        That is all I did as a kid with them. The games was way too complicated for me. I got into Yu-Gi-Oh!’s card game when it became a pretty big deal though. I played with those some but mainly a video game that they made surrounding it. The first series was pretty simple to learn. The third is too much for me. I stopped once the main series did.

        @Yin yugioh! he has a few of those, got at a birthday party or something. but he doesnt like them, probably because they are more for playing and less for pretending to know what to do with like pokemon. maybe he will get into them when he gets older. all of this does kind of lead to something im sure.
        hey were you ever into pog? my sister was when she was about my sons age, but i was a teenager already and couldnt be bothered with any of it . too bad that isnt just still the thing. those cost like a quarter for a handful or something. lolz
        i didnt find any previously played Halo at the store i was at, and i dont have much in way of shopping days left, so we will leave that for another time. maybe a birthday, let him wait a while longer before we go down that road. I looked up Cortana, she seems ok ish. i mean, he has mortal kombat so he has seen skimpier. and like me, doesnt get it. when he is older the whole nearly naked fighting alien will probably take on new meaning, but right now its like OK thats dumb as if any one would show up to a fight in those bathing suits :D but thats a whole nother topic.

        im off to walk to work on this less that lovely winter morning. stay warm and well occupied!

        @BelleMadre Yea, Yu-Gi-Oh! is all about the card game. The cartoon is about people who play that card game. I mean, there is more to it like the main character having an artifact that makes it where he gets taken over/possessed by an ancient pharaoh to help him in that game and stuff, but it’s all about that game. You said he played Mortal Kombat, I played a lot of those games, and I totally forgot those characters were like that. My bad, lol. I wasn’t into pog, no. I had a lot of those discs, but I never knew what they were until literally a few months ago. I thought they were just something else one collects. Should have figured they had a second purpose. The way characters dress like that has been kind of annoying over the years. I get what they’re doing, but I just feel it is something that somewhat devalues the feel of the world it is in and is totally unnecessary. I like when things make sense, at least at the basic level. Armor and clothes = more protection. If a character is designed a certain way, tell me why the person is the way they are and make me believe and understand it. My favorite fighting game, Dead or Alive 4, was all about having skimpy costumes just because they could. Was pretty dumb, but the mechanics of the game just was so good in my opinion. Then they went on to ruin the 5th one with special meters and now I’m sad, lol. I think the character design choices have been getting better over the years though overall. I think with how big cosplay has become, it made room and a market for both kinds of design choices.

        Man, I hope you live nearby or something. I can’t imagine walking to work in the cold, or heat. Could also just be the area I’m in. Nothing is close and there is no transportation system to help. Not a fan of small towns, I don’t think, lol.

        @Yin most of what i do is within ‘walking distance’ … like grocery store is across 3 parking lots. i like buying what i can carry. never over shop. i like walking distance. my definition of that being if it takes more than 25 minutes to walk im going to find another way. but yesindeedie canadian winters do make walking more difficult. im the queen of layers tho. ill be in my portable woolen cave for the next few months

        i guess walking is my little bit of time to myself, to clear my head and mentally prepare for whatever is next. and its exercise? or its me just trying not to fall on the sidewalks :D i dont mind riding a bus but doesnt always work for schedules. tomorrow ill be bussing for shopping fo sho!

        maybe being a woman, and a mom, i cringe at some of the costumes in video games/comics. i get it. but also dont.

        @BelleMadre Man, I need to exercise more. I have no idea how far I could walk currently. One time, I decided to walk to the nearest snow cone stand. I can’t say it was actually far, but I underestimated how far it was. The distance and the heat, that was a mistake, lol. Was pretty miserable. I like the idea of walking though, but I just hate the places around here. Near traffic on the shoulder of the road or in some woods is not really what I want to do. Winter here in Louisiana seems to have gotten weird. Used to just be very cold with maybe sleet most of the winter. Now, it is just mainly cool weather with a random day or two where it snows. I’m betting Canada still straight blasting out with the snow. Can’t imagine all of that. Never know what you are going to slip on. I got metal steps outside my trailer. It’s dangerous when snowing, lol. When I was a kid, I was chasing my brother around my mom’s trailer after a snow or sleet and slipped Home Alone style right on my back. We ain’t prepared for all of that.

        I do too. I watched a lot of Teen Titans some years back and was introduced to a few of the characters through it. I got to say, I was 100% like WTF when I saw what Starfire looked like in the comics. Highly unneeded, especially for that character. I feel that some of the cosplay people kind of keep some of those design choices alive though. I just want characters and the choices for them to make sense, and a lot of that just doesn’t make it. Unfortunate.

        @Yin in winter i do what i call the diva shuffle :D its a way to walk in tiny steps that look almost dainty considering the size of boots i wear in winter, with arms sort of out, like a broken ballerina doll, all so i dont fall on my face back or knees while i walk. its a grand time hahahahaha (nope)

        @BelleMadre Man, simple walks seem like real work in Canada, lol. I can’t be prepared enough. I remember a time in elementary school. It was recess time, went outside, it rained earlier, and I slipped on the edge of the sidewalk trying to walk past someone. Next thing I know, I’m face down with a chip in my new glasses/lens. They saved my face, lol. Maybe I just suck at walking/running. A very real possibility.

        @BelleMadre That’s what stopped me from learning to skateboard. I was seeing the disaster before it was happening. Cracked skull not something I’d like to go for. As for rollerblading, I was a kid and was flying around this skate rink we used to have. I’d smash into the walls, slam my elbow into the floor, and have blisters on my feet. All kinds of hurt, but it was so much fun.

    We are in such a conundrum because we are trying to battle the human nature that we don’t want to own we all have.

    It helps to remember that any of us “born Trump or Clinton” and raised up in the way they were, would probably today find ourselves in a similar place. We all compete in our own way, but to similar ends: to press the advantages we have over others unto greed, and to protect our tender under-belly that we fear others are out to “advantage” themselves on.

    We run into such troubles because we are an intensely self-righteous and hypocritical creature — shooting down others for things we either are, or could so easily, be guilty of ourselves.

    “Turning others in” for the trespasses we see (or think we see?), is a desperate attempt to forestall our being “turned in” for the trespasses we think we’re keeping hidden from everyone — sometimes even ourselves.
