Star Citizen / Around the Verse: New Season/New Time
« on: July 29, 2016, 05:33:15 PM »

I haven't watched yet because I'm still at work and don't want to give the impression that I don't do any actual work  8)

Looking forward to it though because the RSI forums are raving about it! Apparently, the new format is to do a studio per week (or something like that) so that there is more substance and less repetitive rundowns of studio reports.

Highlights from this episode that the RSI forums seem to be pumped about are a look at the flight ready Reliant and details surrounding ATMOSPHERIC FLIGHT MODEL!

Such hype! wow1

Black Desert Online / Blader fixed?
« on: July 28, 2016, 09:56:10 AM »
I'm going to be trying to get back online more consistently and have been thinking about where I left off. I had been grinding out my Sorc pretty heavily but I still really like the concept of the Blader. At the time that I put him down, they were still kind of broken of course this was a couple of months ago. Have they fixed the problems that Bladers were having in being competitive or are they still sub-par as is?

General Discussion / Love from a Dallas Guardian
« on: July 08, 2016, 03:55:08 PM »
Many people have lost loved ones this week. My city is heartbroken over what has happened but I felt everyone could use this. May this bring some sort of comfort to all of us who have lost someone, at some point in our lives.

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Everything remains as it was.
The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no sorrow in your tone.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.
—-Henry Scott Holland

Other Games and Interests / FIFA 17 for PC interest?
« on: June 17, 2016, 05:49:04 PM »
So with some details of the new features for FIFA 17 released I was thinking about pre-ordering. Last one I played was a used version of FIFA 14 on PS3 but I don't want to buy a PS4 since I rarely play on consoles anymore.

I know Direbreed is going to get it but does anyone else think they might be planning on playing this when it comes out in Sept.?

Spoiler  :
So I just saw an interesting theory that supposedly came from a redditor who claims to have seen a script for Ep. VIII. It claims that Rey is a "reincarnation" of sorts of Anakin. The theory goes that the Force occasionally reincarnates "the chosen one" when the galaxy goes out of balance to bring it back into balance and that she is a virgin birth like Anakin was. This may explain her immediate affinity to the Force, her mechanical expertise and her inherent skill at flying and that Anakin's lightsaber called to her

Discuss and or post your own theories!

Star Citizen / Empire Report: Victory on the Vanduul front
« on: April 06, 2016, 03:32:33 PM »

< Transmission Begins >

Beck Russum: Good evening, I’m Beck Russum, here with Alan Nuevo. We begin today’s Empire Report with breaking news out of the Oberon System where Admiral Bishop’s campaign against the Vanduul has scored its first major victory.

Alan Nuevo: That’s right, Beck. The battle in the Oberon System involved the 65th Battle Group, and was led by Admiral Bishop aboard a new flagship, the recently commissioned UEES Retribution. While there is currently scant public information about the ship, rumors about its existence have been around for months.

UEES Retribution’s first action comes in the wake of recent, devastating Vanduul attacks on Uriel, which left thousands dead or missing. Earlier today, Admiral Cedric Cochran held a press conference in Kilian describing a decisive victory against the Vanduul and confirming Retribution’s role in the battle.

[ Admiral Cochran stands before a podium during the press conference. ]

Admiral Cedric Cochran: Operation Mandrake began roughly two days ago, when we received credible intelligence that a Vanduul clan was in the process of mounting a second attack on the Oberon System. Concerned about such a possibility, Admiral Bishop had detached a small strike team to sweep the system. When the Vanduul appeared, these forces were able to intercept and engage the clan before it could attack another Human settlement. While the advanced forces occupied the aggressors, Admiral Bishop ordered Retribution into the system and cut off any escape back to Vanduul space. Once Retribution was in place, the Vanduul … well, they found themselves between a rock and a hard place, as I like to say.

Reporter #1: What else can you tell us about Retribution? There are reports it’s the largest capital ship ever built by the UEE.

Admiral Cedric Cochran: Details on Retribution are classified. Right now, all I’m authorized to say is that personnel aboard the ship were very pleased with its performance during the battle.

Reporter #2: Can you describe the extent of the Vanduul forces?

Admiral Cedric Cochran: The exact specifics are currently being analyzed, but from the reports I’ve seen, it’s probably best to describe them as a medium sized clan.

Reporter #2: Does that mean a Kingship was present?

Admiral Cedric Cochran: No, though there were multiple capital ships reportedly destroyed.

Reporter #3: What was the extent of UEE casualties during the battle?

Admiral Cedric Cochran: Look, one life lost is too many in my book, but safety and security doesn’t come without sacrifice. It’s a simple reality that every member of the UEE armed forces understands, so yes, there were reported casualties. I will refrain from getting too specific until family is notified.

That said, I couldn’t be prouder of how the men and women of the Navy performed. This victory was only possible thanks to a team effort that includes everyone from the Starmen aboard Retribution, the rest of the 65th, and all the way up to us here at High Command. The people of the UEE should be proud of what their Navy accomplished today.

[ Back to Alan and Beck ]

Beck Russum: Joining us now in the studio is military expert Jack Hayden. He’s a consultant at the Center for Universal Security and author of Clan Brutality, which examines what little we know about the Vanduul clans that we find ourselves fighting.

Based on what you’ve heard from your sources, what else can you tell us about Admiral Bishop’s victory in Oberon?

Jack Hayden: This was a successful operation in many regards. Essentially Admiral Bishop got Retribution in theater and gave it a test lap against overmatched opponents. I would expect the victory built confidence among his crew and gave them a chance to work out any kinks on the new ship before engaging a truly dangerous enemy.

Beck Russum: So you don’t consider the Vanduul in this battle to have been a serious threat?

Jack Hayden: Well, as Admiral Cochran alluded to, this did not appear to be a particularly developed Vanduul clan — one that hadn’t even accrued enough materials to build the framework of a Kingship. That leads me to believe this was what I call a “carrion” clan. They are not built up enough to engage in large scale attacks, so they feast on areas weakened by previous assaults or clean up what stronger clans leave behind.

Beck Russum: It sounds like you are classifying this as more of a symbolic than strategic victory?

Jack Hayden: Not entirely. It does give the UEE a clear cut victory against the Vanduul after the horrible events of Vega and the unexpected, initial incursion into Oberon. I’m sure there are plenty of people among Imperator Costigan’s staff and in the halls of the Senate who are excited by this outcome. I would argue that while this victory is good for morale around the UEE, it wasn’t the entire motivation behind Bishop’s decision to commit.

Beck Russum: Then what was? Oberon is an unclaimed system and not under the official protection of the Navy.

Jack Hayden: Oberon may not be an official UEE system but it is still, very clearly, a Human one. Having Oberon fall under the control of the Vanduul would be a setback in that regard. By establishing a presence in Oberon, the system can be used as a staging ground for a push into Vanduul territory. The system has jumps into Virgil, Tiber and Caliban, all systems that used to have UEE settlements. If Admiral Bishop wants to retake any of those systems, Oberon can now be a part of that plan.

Of course, I’m far from the Admiral’s inner circle and he has surprised me many times in the past. With there being so little verifiable information on Retribution, it’s hard to predict how the new ship and its capabilities will affect this war.

Beck Russum: Thank you for your time.

Jack Hayden: You’re welcome. Always a pleasure.

Alan Nuevo: Coming up, residents of Lago call for the UEE to increase its presence in the Nexus System after a series of comm relays were destroyed by pirates. We’ll ask if the UEE has the resources to aid this struggling system. That, and more, when the Empire Report returns.

Hey y'all, thought about posting this before but if anyone is interested in getting back into ARK, Linel and I are goofing around on Official PVE 325. No PvP but it's just to pass the time building crap and checking out the new dinos and features. Join us in TS3 (we are usually in one of the Archeage channels)

Star Citizen / Star Citizen "EU Officer" Announcement
« on: January 18, 2016, 10:03:12 PM »

Greetings Guardians!

For quite some time now, the Guardians have taken great pride in how far our community reaches around the globe. However, we have always had the challenge of keeping our members from across the pond involved with the guild as a whole, being that we are mostly a North American guild. One of the biggest challenges has been that most games have NA servers and EU servers that create that natural divide. Therefore it has been difficult to recruit and keep quality people from that part of the globe. With SC having one giant persistent universe, it gives us a tremendous opportunity to bring TG together as a whole in one game.

With that comes the need for an officer to help oversee that side of the Division and help keep in-line with our values, vision and direction. With that, I am happy to announce Koagedo will be filling that role for us! I am extremely excited at bringing this into reality to help drive The Guardians to being more of an international force for good! Please join me in congratulating him on this promotion!

Lead The Way!

General Discussion / 12ish years
« on: December 16, 2015, 08:32:52 PM »
Well, it's that time again. My 12ish TG-versary was yesterday. Unfortunately I have to celebrate it on the day I re-registered on these forums because my old info is lost to antiquity.

Anyhoo, so glad to be part of such a great community and super thankful for all the great friends I have made along the way. The only sage advice I'll leave this merry TG-versary is this:

Be excellent to each other...and PARTY ON DUDES!

Guardians Lead The Way!
