Anti-Matter

1. I prefer my own calendar design than calendar created by companies. Calendar design from Banks is the most unattractive for me.

2. I will give salute for a man who really love to wear Pinkish outfits yet still maintain their masculinity. Pink is actually color for male.

3. I really don't like Brown color for outfits. It just looks too old fashioned or not vivid color.

My Top 5 Music genre:
1. Super Eurobeat
2. Cyber Trance
3. Euro Trance
4. Hardcore Techno
5. Bubblegum / Eurodance

@Heavyarms55 I agree. I don't see the "improvement" in things like that. I don't own any wireless headphones because to be honest... I have absolutely no idea how they work. I might buy a pair soon tho'.

I believe that devices are getting waaay over priced these days to the point where I'd rather pass on it.
I guess this is just "the world" we live in for better or for worse...

It’s so annoying. My car is a 2008 car, so any hope I have of listening to music on it is a jack. I have no interest in replacing my whole infrastructure just because a company wasn’t in the mood to offer such a basic feature. Bluetooth is a battery monster, so no, I don’t always have Bluetooth on.

Personally, it’s a complete dealbreaker for me. I don’t care if it’s the greatest phone ever made. No jack, no buy.

As more of a silly opinion. I prefer Lzzy Hale over Amy Lee in terms of female rock vocals. Lzzy Hale reminds me a lot of Ann Wilson, and that’s not a bad thing.

@iKhan Problem is, I fear eventually we will be given no choice. Apple and Samsung lead the industry and everyone copies them. They are pushing the headphone jack off the table and it is no longer a standard feature... Eventually they are going to make it so we need the stupid dongle. And they will force consumers to upgrade by their same usual BS of planned obsolesce. Where they stop updating the OS with older phones and then pressure app makers to not support older OS versions - so even if you replace the battery on your phone, all the software you like to use is no longer supported...

@T7Hokage017 The really are quite easy to use and have benefits for sure - I do like the freedom of not having that cord dangling everywhere and being able to move around like normal. But they have drawbacks too, if there are a bunch of wireless devices around, static and interference aren't unusual and they become yet another device you need to keep charged - and the small ones like the earbud style (which I dislike earbuds in general because they never stay in my ears, but I think that's more because of my weird ears than the earbuds) often don't even have the option to use a wire when the battery is dead.

Personally I really like my big earmuff style wireless set because when the battery is dead, or if I want to use it with my Switch, I can use a regular headphone jack instead.

@Heavyarms55 I see. I do think that time's gonna come where we won't even be given a choice sadly.
I'll give you an example. I like hearing music on my Mp3 player. I tend to have music on my phone but when I'm working out or just jogging I prefer to hear music on an Mp3 player. So when my old Mp3 player got busted, I decided to look around stores for a new one but to my surprise they said that no longer were selling them!
I ended up buying one online but to be honest I feel like I'm either forced to hear music on my phone or nothing!

I don't think it's fair and I'm not impressed with "progress" either. It's like I said... this is the world we live in now.
BTW I also prefer head phones over ear buds. I find it irritating when they always slip out of my ear! XD

@Rexenokid I don't think I have. I might give 'em a try since working out and jogging is easier with ear buds.
I like to use headphones when I'm using my computer/phone or when I'm working on my hobbies and projects.

@Rexenokid I have a set sort of like this, with clips that hook around my ears. I use them in summer because earmuff style headphones are just too hot. But I still prefer the earmuff style. More comfortable, better sound quality and no fear of them falling out. Also no need for the hooks/clips.

@T7Hokage017 I don't think you're wrong. It's normal for older tech to be phased out with newer tech. I grew up with VHS and and portable cassette or CD players honestly don't miss them at all. Because they were replaced with devices that do the same thing, better, without sacrificing any features. Many new devices today seem to sacrifice as much as they add and call it "better". No more buttons or headphone jacks on phones and they call that improvement. Well, I strongly disagree.

@Rexenokid Oh, I see what you mean, but I'm the opposite. That style doesn't work for me at all.

And I can say, I teach English as a second language and you're writing comments very well. You should be proud of yourself!

I guess this is an unpopular opinion... I prefer headphones over earbuds. Earbuds are more portable, no doubt, but headphones are way more comfortable for me.

@Heavyarms55 I agree with you on the touch-buttons. They're wayyyy too sensitive for my liking. What if I press it by accident? I once did that with my cousin's Xbox One, unintentionally turning it on. Now I have to turn it off...good riddance.

@MarioLover92 I honestly tend to have the opposite problem with touch-buttons, where I end up tapping over and over before it actually works...

Although your Xbox example reminds me of when my roommate in university had Kinect. I used to walk by and say "Xbox shut down" in the middle of his games - because I was a jerk like that.

NotTelevision

@MarioLover92 Yeah totally agree with you. Investing in a good set of “over the ear” cans really brings out the sound in music, movies, and games. I’ve never heard an equivalent with earbuds and sound from outside leaks in too easily.

@T7Hokage017 "It's like what I said... everyone has their own likes and dislikes.
I'm fine with people as long as they respect my opinions as I respect theirs."

I can respect this attitude! I honestly love games where you get the role of a or the devil. It has something very appealing to me and I just enjoy the entire atmosphere of hell and learning a lot about all the characters in there. But I can imagine how someone more religiously minded would strongly dislike this.

We don't have to play games that are against our believes, but like you so beautifully explained, if people do like them respect that too.

Cheers and happy gaming T7Hokage017!

Out of curiousity, and to get to know you better, what are really your go-to games?

@Cissero Thanks! I'm glad that you agree! It's a lil' somethin' I've always believed in.
I enjoy playing the games I love and you enjoy playing the games you love. It really is as simple as that!

I really enjoy playing games such as Super Mario, Sonic, The Legend Of Zelda, Mega Man, and Shantae!
I also like fighting/crossover games, my favorites being Super Smash Bros. Special and Jump Force!
But my favorite game genre of all time are RPGs/ARPGs! I love them and I just can't get enough of 'em!
I love the game play, the focus on story, and all the mechanics included!
I also like to try on different games and genres to expand my library!

Cheers and happy gaming to you too, Cissero!
BTW I'm also curious about you! What are the types of games you enjoy playing?

@T7Hokage017 those are some wonderful titles!

Personally I love RPG's, always have and always will haha. Nice to hear that you have that too!
Besides that I love roguelites to keep me busy. Recently played a bunch of Binding of Isaac and Deadcells. Remarkable games and lovely time sinks that really make me relax.
For parties smash bros and mario kart are still unequaled titles in my opinion haha!

There are not.many genres i really dont enjoy honestly. As long as the game.is well made I'm always willing to give it a try. The only games I find though to get into are point and click and visual novel titles. But i'm always willing to be surprised!

@Cissero I'm impressed! I also love playing Mario Kart and Smash Bros. with my family and friends.
I personally love games as they are really fun to play and they also help me relax after a long day of work.

TBH my favorite type of games are multiplayer games that I can play with my brother!
I've been playing games with my brother ever since we were kids and it's somethin' we always enjoy doing!
I love visual novels as I love reading. It's story and characters always captivates me!
I'm always willing to try new things too! I'll always love trying new and exciting games with my brother!

@T7Hokage017 that's wholesome man, awesome
Gaming with friends/relatives is indeed one of the best things out there. I'll give a visual novel a go someday because you said that

@Heavyarms55 You just reminded me of a similar thing that happened at my college's lounge room! I saw someone play Super Mario Sunshine, and when they lost a life and the screen transitioned to black, the game seemingly wouldn't load the next area. Turns out someone else had the remote and turned off the TV at the right moment. It was...unexpected to say the least
