The close range blasting sorcerer is like... stupidly overpowered. I've run a few and holy crap. The skills just synergize so damn well. All stamina, the hurricane skill, a clannfear for emergency healing and tanking bro-buddy, the sword/shield skill that reduces resistance... melee sorc ftw.

I just played it for like 8 straight hours.

It's purty good.

I'd consider it but... switching browsers used to be a quick n easy thing. But now I have all my extensions, and themes, and password manager, and etc to consider. It's just too much to bother with. I'll stick with Chrome, though I have heard good stuff about the latest Firefox.

Elex:

What happens when a German game developer says "we should combine Fallout, Mass Effect, and Skyrim into one game."

It's pretty awesome. A bit janky but not as bad as previous Piranha Bytes games (Gothic, etc).

Axes, swords, plasma weapons, explosives, magic, psi powers, and chems all in one open-world RPG? Sign me up!

Worth checking out.

But if a game is terrible, free is too much!

Apparently the game really wants me to have two of every unique it gives me.

"Oh, Leoric's Crown. Neat."
"Huh. Another one. I guess Leoric mass produced these..."
"Goldwrap... And another Goldwrap..."

Diablo 3 / Re: Season 12

Last night I started a necromancer named Aeris. Also kind of re-learning how to play.

I don't expect to get far or accomplish much since I'm way too casual for season play, but whatever. I'll have fun with it while it lasts. :D

I am running through the campaign since I haven't done it with necro, plus I really have a hard time playing a game without some sort of structure to it. Just playing on hard for now, but I'll probably bump it up soon.

I haven't played this at all since they broke my nightblade build with the skill changes in the last big patch.

I'm still mad.

So I subbed to FF14 instead.

A few weeks ago you were asking why I'd sub to a terrible MMO like FF14! :D

Really? I must have been jesting. I've played/subbed FF14 off and on now for like a year?

I still think it's a heavily flawed mmo (and looks like poop on a stick), but it does a lot I like. It scratches an itch. Just not as well as ESO...

You could try Aspect of Terror from the Shadow line (I personally find fleeing enemies to be really annoying), or maybe Fire Rune/Volcanic Rune from the Mages Guild. Neither have great duration though.

There's also Tangling Webs from the Undaunted, but like me if you only solo then you probably don't have anything in that line. I don't like the concept of this one either.

I don't have any Undaunted for the reason you mention. I'm not high enough level for Aspect of Terror. This nightblade was still young in her career. That's why she enjoyed having that CC skill...

They removed Agony (the 2nd skill in the Siphoning tree), which was a 30-second disorient and my primary crowd control ability (I exclusively solo), and replaced it with a heal... that costs health to cast. It's a ridiculous change to swap out a soloability skill with one that is useless outside of a party.

I don't play a sneaky assassin-y nightblade. Mine is a heavy armor, 2h-sword, in-your-face "dark knight" build. I used that skill both for flavor/RP and because it was the only CC I had.

So I've been mad ever since.

And we probably should have won the game against the Pats.

Awww... that's adorable! :D

Gaming General / The Evil Within

Anyone play it?

This is my scary season game this year. I'm up to chapter 4 and finding it really good so far, though the controls are dodgy. It's a good mix of creepy and "wtf?" along with a healthy dose of "Japanese game designers are whacked."

I was gifted The Evil Within 2 earlier tonight so I may have to play them both back to back...
