I can't hear my ring tone anyway. My IEM is almost always in.

PC games still look meh to me. Look at the ground, there's so much detail it looks unrealistic and way too sharp compared to anything you would see in real life. The fire and character models look nice though.

I don't care if I can't see each individual fine grain of sand on the PC because I will never see that in reality anyway. MGS5's screenshots still look incredibly realistic to me, and I think the new F.O.X. engine concept is a big reason for that.

Your phone doesn't mute your music and play your ringtone when someone calls you? I thought that's a standard feature so you know when someone is calling you.

Yeah, MGS5 looks incredible, especially for a console, I'm still salty as hell that MGS never do PC ports(except Revengeance)

And I think it's more of us never paying attention to every single thing in our view than it not being there. The grains are definitely there, just take a look at some HD forest shots, we just related look at it close enough to notice the little things. When it's all on screen, well that's a little different.

I rented Ground Zeroes the other day and I just couldn't do it. I dunno whether too much time has lapsed since I've played MGS (I've played all of them) or that the controls are now quite stiff and archaic feeling (quite possibly), but I just couldn't get into it. I'm looking forward to Phantom Pain tho, if only for the wacky Kojima hijinks and awesome scope, but MGS4 really soured me on the franchise after completely botching the game with a painful amount of linearity after the incredible first two chapters.

You all really like salty things don't you? I tried some of this today. I left a single salt grain on my tongue for about 5 seconds, bad idea. My whole mouth was on fire for 10 minutes even after eating some yogurt in an attempt to cool it down.

Only MGS I enjoyed was 1 and Snake Eater. The rest.. Eh.

lol, you don't try anything labeled "ghost pepper" EVER. The Bhut Jolokia is one of the hottest peppers on the planet

I live in a country that lives of chillies and spice and even I wouldn't be willing to try that without some sort of buffer

That's the thing. There's NO buffer against this. You either have the natural tolerance for it or you don't.

Pretty hilarious vid of LA Beast taking on the Bhut Jolokia:

I love my spicy. Used to eat "chilli padi" with everything but it's bad for the stomach so I stopped, also has Taiwan "Ma Lat" noodles a few times, it was spicy and you sorta lose feeling in your mouth after a few minutes but I survived. You could call that resistance, I guess.

Just watched episode 16 of Gurren Lagann. Wow, that arc was great grand and glorious!

You ever seen the Scoville scale before? It measures how many units of water are required to negate the heat of a particular pepper. You oughtta see how the peppers you ate stack up to something like the Bhut Jolokia or Naga Viper. The hottest thing I could tolerate were habanero peppers at 50,000 Scoville, which... Are directly comparable to chili padi (or Thai peppers I guess, got those in my fridge as well), and those are a GALAXY removed from ghost peppers.

Yeah, as you said they are far and away the hottest on the planet. Iirc the hottest is the Carolina Reaper, which clocks in at 2.2million, almost twice the value Naga Viper. You could probably kill someone with that.
