digging deeper

“i think it’s so annoying how people are complaining about Rise of the Tomb Raider being a microsoft exclusive. It’s like beating a dead horse. it’s only timed for fuck’s sake” 

i’m pretty sure it’s clear that TR definitive edition sold twice as much than the xbox one version plus no one likes microsoft and TR’s fanbase is quite large and a majority of them own a sony console so like….complaining about people complaining…..yeah…people who pull this kind of pissy attitude are digging themselves a deeper hole lol 

Sentry Reading List

Someone was nice enough to post reading lists for Captain America and Thor so far. I would like to do the same for a lesser known Marvel character:



The Blond Bombshell..,
The Golden Guardian of Good..,
The Man with the Power of a Million Exploding Sun..,

THE SENTRY!




Sentry - Volume 1
by Paul Jenkins

The first volume tells the story of Robert Reynolds, a troubled man, who one day awakens just to realize, that he was once the greatest superhero the world had ever seen. But his memories are shattered and as they slowly start returning, so does his arch-nemesis the Void, a ruthless force with enough power to end the entire universe.

Tip: The additional one-shots dig deeper into Sentry’s early encounters with various superheroes like Spider-Man, Hulk, the Fantastic Four and more.





The Age Of The Sentry
by Jeff Parker

While non-canon, this run still offers you a good look at Sentry’s early years as a superhero. The entire run is very lighthearted and has a strong Silver Age-y feel to it (due to the writing and the art).




New Avengers - Volume 1
by Brian Michael Bendis

The Sentry joins the main Avengers roster and fights, alongside Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man and others for peace and freedom.

Tip: There is a lot of focus on the Sentry in the first ten issues of the run, later on only now and then.




Sentry - Volume 2
by Paul Jenkins

The second Sentry volume shows the Sentry trying to fit in and once more deal with the vast responsibilities he has. There is also a lot of focus on Sentry’s mental illness, other personal problems and once again the Void, whom he is trying to contain.





New Avengers #24 + Civil War: The Return
by Brian Michael Bendis & Paul Jenkins

These two comics show Sentry’s mentality and struggle during the Civil War.





Mighty Avengers - Volume 1

by Brian Michael Bendis

After the Civil War the Sentry joins Iron Man’s Mighty Avengers team.

Tip: There is a lot of focus on the Sentry up until issue #14.





Silent War

by David Hine

The Inhumans have a bone to pick, but the Avengers are in their way. Sentry happens to be one of the Avengers and the one with the most amount of doubts and questions about the war.

Tip: There is a lot of focus on the Sentry in issues #2 and #5.





World War Hulk
by Greg Pak

The Hulk is angrier and stronger than ever before. Unfortunately for the Marvel universe, his rage is directed towards all the heroes. While the Avengers are trying to deal with him, the Sentry is dealing with his own problems.





Dark Avengers - Volume 1
by Brian Michael Bendis

Norman Osborn has legitimately taken over the Avengers. While most of the Avengers leave, the Sentry is one of the few, who stay on the team.





Siege
by Brian Michael Bendis

Osborn’s Dark Avengers attack Asgard with the Sentry being one of the attackers. Soon things get out of control.





Siege - Fallen Sun
by Paul Jenkins

A final standalone comic for the Sentry and an ode to the character at the same time, written by his creator Paul Jenkins.





What If? #200
by Marc Guggenheim

An alternate reality scenario, where Osborn wins the Siege on Asgard. Once again, the Sentry is in the middle of it all.





Uncanny Avengers - Volume 1
by Rick Remender

A team consisting out of Avengers and X-Men members encounters the Apocalypse Twins, who try “save” the mutants. To achieve their goals, they resurrect some of the Avengers and X-Men former friends and allies with the Sentry being one of them.



Why you should read Sentry comics:

The Sentry is a rather new character, but one that fits perfectly into the Marvel universe, which is full of flawed men and women, who are just trying to do the right thing. Sentry is such a man, a deep and complex man and even though he wields limitless power, he is still a very realistic character, which is also a big Marvel universe trait. By reading Sentry comics, you see the responsibility a Marvel hero has and also the burden and the struggle, that come with that responsibility.

Enjoy!

the late nights you spend sitting around a campfire with your friends singing the songs you love are the moments you cherish. in your youth there are many different first experiences. personally, I think the ones that are most important, are those that make you feel alive.
question your existence. wonder about other people. lose yourself in thought. the world is a beautiful place and as we get older, sometimes it gets harder to find that beauty. but sitting around a campfire singing your favorite songs is beauty in the purest form. talk to the person next to you. put down your phone. pick up a book. learn. grow. find the fucking beauty. because I know how difficult it is to find it again once you lose sight of it. make these memories. have these first experiences, feel alive. stay up until five in the morning just because you can. dig deeper into your thoughts and learn more about yourself and others. because THAT is the beauty.
—  the beauty of being alive

anonymous asked:

Do you think "My castle" is going to serve as a hub in between chapters? Also, any thoughts on what Rinka's oni class might do?

Yes, I absolutely think that My Castle is a hub between chapters, largely due to the fact that, hey, somebody said so.  Leaving My Castle apparently starts the next chapter as well, but I can’t find where I saw that.

Digging deeper into that (just read VincentASM’s comments in the article linked above), there seems to be a lot to do, and it covers all the bases from previous games, plus more.  For one, certain resources, including ores and food, are found in the base and exclusively used while in the base.  We got the best look at the cooking mechanic, but ores are expended in the Forge in a similar manner, so there’s your incentive for restraint if you need one.

Which, by the way, possibly explains what the devs meant by “a different kind of component” when hunting for extra battles in Hoshido’s campaign.  The player has to spend gold on it, so acquiring resources for your trouble seems a fair payoff.  This could in turn let you get better weapons before your next combat or collect enough food to get a good party buff.  It holds a lot of promise.

Regarding Linca/Rinka, the Oni class is described as possessing solid Str/Def, so I’m basically looking for some middle ground between a Fighter and a Knight.  Actually, we got a look at the class’ base stats already,

 and we can see that she’s fast as well, so that’s cool.  Predictably, low Mag/Res, and 0 Lck.  But still, tanky.

At this early stage, I’d peg Oni as being chip units in the vein of Knights/Generals, but more of a gamble (as in, will they actually hit or not).  If you remember Gonzales from FE6…yeah, like that, although maybe not so drastically.

U look Asian not white like u stated

honestly it was funny like 4 hours ago but now im just tired like dig deeper maybe

Just had a #davines product knowledge session with @davinesjess! Great way to start the morning and really dig deeper into the history and different ways to use the Davines line. Thanks for all the info and Happy Birthday Jessica! #davinesnorthamerica #davinesitaly #davinesofficial #salonlife #hair #natural #chooseday #productknowledge #history #workgrind (at JP MODE SALON)

I got so caught up in trying to find friends that I’ve totally lost myself and I don’t know who I am anymore. I was trying to find things to fill this emptiness inside me when all along it was just digging me deeper and deeper into the ground. Now I’m not sure how to get out.

team-laufeyson in turn

Which side would you join?
Patriots, obviously. I have a strong sense for justice and democracy. Estate-based societies and monarchies aren’t something cool. It is most woeful that human beings are born into a role and have no opportunity to achieve their true skills and desires.
Also I look handsome in blue.

What would you do (spying, fighting, etc.)?
I think I’d be in intelligence. Something that requires fighting skills and brainpower. I was always good in theoretical stuff and in school I knew something in every subject. Also in real life. I know some things about physics, I’m good at biology, I understand logic, I’m kind of good in language, I know a lot of art-related stuff, but I really need to get passionate about something to dig in the topic deeper. Also I’m good at solving riddles. When I’m training I’m in a good physical condition and I’m really fast. Plus I totally have a thing for knifes and daggers, so this would be my choice of weapon: A knife and my mind.

If you’re in the military what rank would you hold?
If required I can totally lead persons and inspire them, although I rather like to work on my own. If noone is willing or able to lead a group and make decisions I can make them. So I think I’d hold the rank of a Captain or Major. But I think I’d have face court martial some times because I tend to question a leaders decision and wouldn’t be afraid of a confrontation. I think it’s important to question your leader, because that means to question yourself.
Have a quote fro Drago Age: You are who you choose to follow.

Any special skills?
I’m able to sneak at people really good. Although I have my own very strong oppinions on topics I’m able to get into someone elses shoes and look at things from their point of view. I’m very creative and can inspire people. Also I know that sometimes, especially in a war you just have to do what is neccessary, if you like it or not. If it means kill a man for the victory. Yes I do it. If it means torture someone to get important information. I’m your woman. Sticking to yourself is important, but if you have to throw away your moral to achieve the greater goal, some things must be done even if you don’t like them.
Victory. Or death.

I wrote the words to this song while sitting at a bus stop in Cambridge after the XL woman standing next to me tossed her XL Dunkin Donuts iced coffee on the street in front of her because she was done with it. As much as I wanted to hate her for it, that act got me thinking of the greater evils at play. She’s not the cause, she is the effect. We all need to dig deeper.

Couple that instance with me being fed up waiting tables in a city on lock down at a restaurant with a highly intelligent clientele that lack all common sense and decency and there you have it.

Digging Deeper

After a few weeks of research, all the information that she had gathered were laid out in front of her and quite frankly, it was perplexing. She knew the Ashford surname was familiar. Wesker kept bragging about how he obtained a new virus from an Ashford woman a few months after the Raccoon City incident. The consultant was also right when she said she had seen Alfred before, portraits of the Ashford family were hung around the Umbrella facility she used to work at. 

In addition to talking about the T-Veronica virus, Wesker also boasted that his rivals were dead too so how did two people survive a self destruct sequence and continue civilian life in plain sight? Were they planning something nefarious in the neighbourhood?  

All these answers she dug up recently didn’t quench her curiosity, it only made it grow and she had to go there in person to settle it once and for all. Leon strongly protested against it but she managed to persuade him that it was ‘for the greater good of mankind’ and that prevention was better than cure.

It was a pity he had a training scheduled during the time period she had planned to go to LA to confront the twins as she knew he would always back her up. “Be careful.” were his last words to her before he departed and she smiled, wasn’t she always cautious?

——–

The rental car pulled up to the driveway a couple of hours after midnight when the occupants of the house inside were most likely deep asleep. Parking the vehicle as far away from the dwelling as she could, Ada killed the engine and stepped out, feeling the cool night air wash over her. It almost felt like she was back in her spying days. Tonight she was just simply geared with her hookshot and a few other equipment that were small but efficient.

Walking as quietly as she could, she eyed her surroundings which was just as stated in the blue prints. Garage to her left and the main home in front. Ada could see that the lights inside the house were switched off which made sneaking around easier. Her feet carried her over to the nearest window and she peeked inside. She could make out a cosy living room and a kitchen at the back but there was a room at the side which caught her interest as she could see light streaming out from the bottom of the door. 

The Asian woman strolled over to the side of the house where that room was and found that there weren’t any windows to that room. How peculiar. As she carried on sauntering, she realized she was at the back of the house now since the swimming pool was currently in her line of sight. 

If her calculations were right, she was directly under one of the bedrooms right now and taking out her grappling hook, she fired the head and it embedded itself in the roof. Pulling the trigger, the cable hoisted her upwards and she landed with quiet thump. She balanced herself on the edge and gracefully tip-toed over to where the window was before kneeling down on the roof tiles. 

She took out her phone and connected a cable to the bottom of the device and snaked the wire down to the window. Her smartphone’s screen flickered to life and she was now seeing a live feed from her portable camera. Switching to night vision mode, she silently smiled as the bedroom was currently unoccupied. 

Just to make sure, Ada traversed to the other side of the roof where the second bedroom was and repeated the process. This room had one of the twins sleeping in them but she couldn’t tell if it was the male or female sibling. Most likely it was Alfred since he told her some time back that his sister fell asleep in unexpected places. 

Ada returned back to the first bedroom and secured herself to the roof with her hookshot once more before slowly lowering her body down to the window’s level. She could see the latch at the side which presumably allowed the glass to swing outwards to her and she pulled out another equipment which she inserted through the gaps near the latch.

There was a soft pop as the window dislodged slightly and the ex-spy pulled the window open fully. The floor was carpeted and she swung herself into the bedroom with a faint thud. It was decorated femininely with hints of pinks and purples from the pale moonlight that was shining into the room and she surmised that this was Alexia’s space. Out of courtesy, she shut the window again.

Glancing around, she saw the door to her left and a door in front of her which would led to the stairs. Ada took a left and she was greeted by a small walk-in wardrobe that was plain and simple. There was no hidden sliding panel that would led to a secret room anyway. However, there was another door in the closet and she opened it to the sight of a bathroom. Two more doors were present in the toilet and Ada didn’t need to investigate the one in her line of sight to know that it was Alfred’s wardrobe.

Instead, Ada opened the door to her right which led to a small passageway to the stairs. Thankfully, it was carpeted as well and she didn’t have to put in much effort to muffle her footsteps. She made a beeline to the mysterious room on the ground floor and kneeled down on the ground again to push a little bit of the portable camera under the door. 

On the screen, it showed a blonde woman sleeping on a little cot in the middle of the room. To the left was a desk with a computer on it along with some filing cabinets at the side and to the right, was a bookshelf. Near the top of the room, she saw a security camera. Good thing she didn’t walk straight in. This room had all the furnishings of a laboratory and Ada didn’t like it one bit even though she didn’t see any samples or fancy lab equipment.

Having seen enough, Ada stowed her gear and stood up, roaming to the couch in the living room and sitting herself down on the cushy fabric. Now she would have to wait till morning and she took the time to close her eyes to meditate.
