Yip just graffiti...kinda got to collect them all...but i dont really care so it was pointless playing. I don't like the way how you have to grind just to get chance at collecting cosmetic stuff. Sure its super fun game to play with friends but that's about it for me. Fps like cod and bf at least you level up and earn stuff...not just outfits and sprays
I think I'm one of the rare few that prefer cosmetic rewards over gear. I really don't like how almost every shooter gives an advantage to time played by giving players better gear.
But for me, Overwatch is just crazy good fun. I wasn't playing for loot, I was playing because I was enjoying it
Does this mean we can stop jerking ourselves off about what a great sporting nation we are? I mean, I feel for the people who have trained for years only to sputter when the big day comes as no one wants to go through that, but maybe this will mean we end with the charade that we're God's chosen people when it comes to sports.
But NZ is a great sporting nation......NZ has the most dominant sporting team of all time in all sports......
Sure, but rugby is still a niche sport and only at the top of the pecking order in a handful of countries. It's not justification for the myth we cling to. Most of our national sports teams are consistently average at best, if not downright poor at times. It's why we cling to sh*t like rowing.
But what do I know? I can't stand the Olympics. It's a pick 'n' mix of sports that no one gives a sh*t about usually. I dunno why once every four years we kid ourselves that discus is suddenly a big deal.
Don't quote me, but I think the rugby world cup is the 2nd biggest world cup event in sports?
And consistently average is still a pretty big achievement for such a small nation. I mean the fact that a team like the Black Caps can even earn the right to share a field with a team like India... I mean India isn't just a sport that plays cricket, it's a nation that lives and breathes it. The main problem with New Zealand sports is our unrealistic expectations. We take sporting excellence for granted and we're quick to bandwagon. That last parts kind of irrelevant, but it's still something that kind of bugs me.
I'm the opposite, I love the Olympics. And I love it for the same reason you hate it. These sports that get little to zero exposure, these athletes who are otherwise everyday people you wouldn't look twice at if you pass him on the street. Once every four years they get a chance to showcase their passion and hard work
Nightcrawler, 7/10. Has Jake Gyllenhaal ever done a bad movie? His acting skills are bloody amazing, solid movie but I wouldn't want to watch it again. Was also hoping to hear Judas Priests 'Night Crawler' play even though it wouldn't have suited this movie.
The Brothers Grimsby is one of the most ridiculous movies I've ever seen. I think it might have some of the most messed up things in it, than any other movie Sacha Baron Cohen has done (which is a pretty bold statement). But I laughed all the way through... and theres still some moments in it that crack me up just thinking about it. Missus wasn't too impressed though
It's definatly an upset.... sure Holms is an accomplished kickboxer, but who didn't think Rousey was just gunna run her down, judo throw her and rip her arm off?
Pretty good card, super happy with Whittiker and Hunt, although I'm a little sad that Hunt v Silva 2 wasn't quite as good when Bigfoot wasn't on the juice. And now I'm looking forward to the inevitable Holms/Rousey rematch.
How good was Holms though? Kudos to her for being the first person ever to hold a UFC and boxing title at the same time
Being a fairly casual fan myself (I do love Canelo though, how can you not love an irish looking mexican), I did have a quiet chuckle when the general public got pissed at Mayweather doing what he's made a career out of doing. It's almost like no one had ever seen him fight before. I also don't like how it was so incredibly hyped up and over-priced when it was a fight that was five years overdue... but there lies the problem with boxing these days. It's too political, fighters picking and choosing/avoiding their next fight. More titles than shoulders to rest them on, then theres the fact that MMA, more specifically, UFC has none of that. They fight when they're and who they're told to fight, the end.
Thats another thing, I would like to see boxing adpot the UFCs "ring/octagon control". A simple adjustment that would've changed the whole complexion or even result of that fight. I know it'll never happen... and it especially won't happen in a Mayweather fight, given that he makes all the rules... but I'd like to see something change, so it can get back to where it was 20 years ago
