  1. I was compelled by..

    Kylo Ren's emotional instability and insecurities

    Finn's concern for others over himself and the one line he completely broke character for "Is there a trash compactor?" "Yeah there is"

    I was trying not to break a sweat over my crush on Ray

    Harrison Ford's incredible cheesiness WHICH THIS MOVIE NEEDED MORE OF TO FEEL LIKE STAR WARS. All the staging and lines are too meticulous and shrink-wrapped.

    The space battles

    Making me horrified, angry, and sad watching a death star do its thing (probably the highlight of the film for me)


    Was not compelled by..

    The "this is fanservice" tone for many moments

    Yeah we get it Abrams, you thought of using the force to stop a blaster in mid-air

    Again, very very very by the numbers. Abrams very carefully followed Lucas footprints.. but put on a bigger pair of boots, making it clear this is more of a 1-up than an effort to break new ground. It's got the push for diversity and that's about it.

  2. You managed to message both my OCR account and my YouTube account 'darkozl' about this!


    So, the thing about Skies of Arcadia is that's my favorite game. Of all time.


    I'm interested in doing some visual work.. animation and trailer design for the project. Jose the Bronx usually handles that stuff, but I'd really love an exception to do it just this once. My job in real life is motion design so I'll send you some samples.


    I'm interested in doing a track as well, but I'll need in-depth help from a producer. The SoA OST lends itself to Drum and Bass and Trap (those breakbeat drum rhythms in several battle themes) I'd love to do that kind of mix.


    Darkflamewolf, I'm interested in learning more about you, your background and bio and stuff. For anyone not very familiar with you around the forums, I'm sure they'd like to know more about our Project Director.


    P.S. Battle 1/2 and Last Battle are hugely loved tracks. Really looking forward to those remixes. Valua City is another personal favorite.

  3. How tall are you / got any pics? Also what's your chest routine? 2 days of chest a week with good volume should give you good results IF you're eating at a surplus and resting well.


    I'm 5'11". This is where I'm at. My routine is either once a week or twice depending on how long the soreness stays. I also do weighted pushups randomly a lot of evenings. Anyway, I do pullups until I can't get at least 7 reps. Then bench enough to max out 8 reps my first set. Then incline bench same thing. Then cable crossovers same thing, 4 sets high, 4 sets low.


    Then I'm dead and since I take 10 minute music breaks between sets 2+ hours have passed  :<


    My sleep is great and my nutrition content is great. I probably don't eat enough.

  4. I've noticed a lot of definition showing up the past three months for me. Arms and face have zero fat. A bit of ribs poking through, like 2 and a half. My biceps look ridiculous.


    More strength than I've ever had. I'm kind of stuck at 150 bench though. Been playing sports consistently for the first time in my life. My stamina doesn't give in because I've been running too.


    Pecs are not getting big. No idea why. The definition on them looks sloppy, and my abs are a friggn mess. My abs are actually ripped to the moon if you feel em but there's flab. So I'm Johnny Wiseau weird-ripped. It sucks. I look too lean on the rest of my body, and I've cut out fat from my diet to a level of self-control that has held up for 8+ months and I'm just waiting for the dam to burst.


    I think my genetics are giving me the red light on a six-pack. I am so friggn close it hurts my soul. You know Bleck's signature? That's me, everyday after workout.

  5. What happens if, like many projects tend to do, this game hits development hell and A) needs more funds or B ) The game never materializes? Seems like if there's anything worse than buying a bad game it would be paying for one that never comes out. I really couldn't find any concrete terms of use for the funds gathered. I know this is a sort of populist approach to venture capitalism, but when someone is playing with other's money it seems like a lot of the impetus to complete a project is attenuated ( or maybe strengthened depending on the ethical outlook of a company)? Still without Microsoft hovering over them, I think Rareware might make something worth playing...I miss seeing that golden R and knowing that meant quality.


    Since this is like the primary 6 people who created all the best known Rareware games, I think this Kickstarter is a bit unusual. It's like funding the Beatles or Shigeru Miyamoto. So.. only like a 25% chance of total disaster instead of 90%.

  6. New bench PR 205 lbs x1, unspotted. VERY happy with that since last week I tried it and failed. First I tried 195 lbs and got 2 reps with that so figured I'd go up. Honestly I might have been able to go higher. If I can hit a clean 225 bench by end of May I will be happy.

    Do you get gains from 1 rep at the highest possible you can handle, or is that a testing your ceiling type of thing? Congrats on breaking 200 Zirc.


    I have to make more adjustments to get my abs and chest to reveal/ define better. I was cutting to the point where my face was starting to look thin and gaunt, 0% lean arms, yet my stomach fat resisted, especially at the hip, it's not even close.

    Genetics? I don't know, but I read that dairy products may cause bloatiness and inhibit definition. So I'm cutting out dairy completely to see what happens. Big sacrifice for me, so I'm totally willing to be talked out of it 8-O

  7. I lost 6 lbs in a week and My Fitness Pal is freaking out. It bumped up my daily calorie intake to 2,750 calories in order to lose .5 lbs a week. It was at 2,100, and now it also says to aim for 210g of protein.

    Should I just remove my last reported weight? Something isn't right. I have a crazy metabolism and i don't know what my calories should be to lose just a little fat.

    My weight is 171.5 lbs at 5' 11" if that helps. Not sure if that's low when I'm trying to maintain muscle mass.

    Edit: Nevermind it just switched my goal to gaining .5 lbs and I put it back. Why would it automatically do that...

  8. Also MyFitnesPal app is a big help. I recently started using it, you guys probably know all about it, but it basically told me that 1. I'm not eating quite enough and 2. what I am eating, it distributes as too much fat.

    I also temporarily gave up running except for sprinting 1 mile two or three times a week. I really need to get back up 5+ miles without losing mass somehow. That's my next research goal after 2 weeks of cutting then 4 more weeks of gaining.

  9. Awesome, Soul!


    I'm at the stage beyond frustrated that I can't cut my ab fat. That stage where you just kind of have this defeated look in your eyes... and you stare ahead at nothing.

    My gut is telling to take up cardio again, sprinting 2 miles every two or three days, full intensity. Everyone says NO CARDIO, NO CARDIO, but my intuition is telling me to do it. Meanwhile I am steadily scaling up on weights, so yay for that.

    Also my diet is immaculate. I want a documentary about the holiness of my diet.
