Proof that I'm actually not so bad at Rocket League.  Damn fun, it is.  The last goal I scored maybe should have been credited to the other guy, but I think I kept it from hitting the post, or maybe I bumped it back in off the post.  It was hard to tell.

The screenshot was taken in the post-game screen, and two of the other team had just quit.  It wasn't 3v1 :P

That game is just a ball of fun, isn't it!

If you watch Godzilla backwards, it's about a friendly dinosaur who rebuilds Tokyo before moonwalking into the ocean.

Can't tell if this show is gratuitously reusing an extra, or if I should be suspicious of the middle aged man in a jacket, with a briefcase.

You know what's great about not working on a Monday?  I can have an early afternoon beer while all you poor bastards are dreading the week ahead.

37 football fields?!  How big is that in square cubits?  How many thicknesses of a human hair is the circumference?

Is that American football, or the rest of the world's football?

That thing you didn't want to launch until you were back, that was Rocket League, wasn't it? You goofed your video-going-public time! :P

I think the usual plans are 12, 25, 100 or 200Mbps.

Sometimes I wish I were a Youtube gamer, because then I'd have video evidence of this stuff.  I just had a whole team forfeit against me in Rocket League.  In the opening 30 seconds I scored two goals against them.  They were good, solid goals, one was just a matter of judging the timing correctly, and another I think was dumb luck I was able to clear the ball and chase it to the right spot on the field.  On the instant replays, however, those two goals looked like I was some kind of elite star player.  One after the other like that, it must have been pretty demoralising.

Great news for being able to share videos here without Youtube commenters ruining the conversation.  On the other hand, because Youtube's subscriptions are just...ineffective, I rely more on Google+ posts to see when people release videos.  That's going to come to an end.

Why does Google continually squander great opportunities?  It's like they're becoming the new Microsoft, in that sense.

Also, the bit about comment dislikes dropping by 35%?  The dislike button on comments hasn't done anything ever since the Google+ integration.  Or at least it hasn't given any feedback to the user to say it's doing anything.  Of course dislikes have dropped, when they don't appear to be working.  The only surprise to me is that they didn't drop by more than 90%!

I'm really enjoying Rocket League, and I apparently don't suck at it.  That, or the game's matchmaking is good at making players feel at home at their own skill level.

I went in already knowing a bit about the gameplay and strategy, because I've been watching some youtubers playing it.  I then did all of the training, and won a season against the bots before I tried playing online.  Turns out I was a little overprepared, because people online seem a little terrible, sometimes.

Of course, they're better than bots on "Pro" skill level who seem to literally play for the wrong team.  If they're chasing a ball into our goal, they'll keep bumping it further ahead.  They just don't know how to defend.
