PCs / Re: Intel Chip Design Flaw
« on: January 07, 2018, 07:07:04 AM »
To update on this topc :

2 flaws, Meltdown and Spectre.
Meltdown is Intel only, but can be mostly mitigated by OS patches which have been rolling out already.
Spectre concernes EVERY chipset made in the last ~10 years (basically any chip which has branch prediction) and has no global possible fix, just possible mitigation software by software.

Pretty bad times :/

Picked up Horizon Zero Dawn on PS4, quite enjoying ot so far though the exploration/quest balance could be improved a bit. Too many things to uncover on the map, not that many actually interesting.

How could I forget Grim Dawn.  The closest thing to D2 that there is.  Pretty good game.  Now if you could only get a game with the best aspects of  D2/GD/D3 that would be pretty awesome.

Not played all of those myself, but have you given a try to Path of Exile ? I still have to give it a try, but that's what most of the Diablo-like aficionados I know have turned to in my circle of friends.

Has anyone played Disgaea 5? Bought it for Switch last night for something to sink a bit of time into until I buy a PS4. I tend to skew more toward the items/loot aspects of RPGs, rather than story, so the weak story doesn't really concern me.

That's not how Disgaea really works. I do like tactical-RPGs, and Disgaea is a fantastic one, but it actually tends to be... too much. It's full of qualities, but there are IMO literally too many things to do and systems to explore, it's a game played in hundreds of hours, and I find it hard to find this kind of time now.

You probably should limit the otherwise infinite choice by genre, but for the "WOW, MY EYES" effect of your 1070, you can look into Tomb Raider indeed, Witcher 3, the latest Doom which are three solid games (at the very least) and will make you enoy the benefits of a new CG.

Many Dark spells are quite original, and are absolutely stunning... in PvP : silence spell and the DLC spell which raises your encumbrance by a set percentage can really mess up people's builds and expectations, affinity gives you some breathing room to cast other spells, dark fogs get people out of safe zones... I had never really dipped in PvP in the Souls games until my Hexer, and loved it.

It's been a while since my last Souls run (a Bloodborne run with a friend early this year), it may be time for me to start Dark Souls III.

Tbf I really didn't miss lightning spear on a hexer build given that the basic dark spell, dark orb, has many casts and while it isn't sunlight spear, it's  still more than powerul enough to still be extremely useful end-game.

Quite liking it too. They had advertised that this album was the one which would get your feet moving, and damn, they sure didn't oversell, I was dancing on my way to the train this morning.

QotSA is tight in execution, but usually much looser on the form, that may be what I am missing a bit in this album, but still a good one :) TBF, the only QotSA album I don't like 100% is Era Vulgaris, and Song for the Deaf is literally my favorite record ever.

Actually, the last iteration of the Magic tG game is pretty good, there is now actual card building, and very much like Hearthstone doing dailies ensures you can reasonably keep well with the latest expansions without forking cash. While I stopped playing Hearthstone I played that, and stopped becaus I wasn't overly fond of the meta ion the latest expansions, but the game itself is great.

I played beta quite a bit, stopped rather early after the release, took it back just as Grand Tournament was released and never completely stopped since, so yes, quite a bit
;) At times I get a bit frustrated by uninteresting metas so just do my dailes a couple of times a week (like RIGHT NOW given that token druids are completely broken and that's at least 6 or 7 out of ten games in ranked you see that deck ) but otherwise play quite regularly.

Sounds great! I will definitely play this by 2025 :D

It's actually a reasonably short game,  so may be easier to tackle with than, say, Witcher 3 ;)

There seems to be a part at some point that's time limited, and failing to do it the first time triggers a checkpoint... where the checkpoint loading + starting animation make it IMPOSSIBLE to succeed.

Anyways, not meaning to rain on your parade, since the game does look interesting and is something I'll pick up at some point too.

Reports are that the game is good, but that it is quite bugged, so you may want to wait for a patch. Just second hand information mind you, so take it with a grain of salt.

Books / Re: "Classics"

Godji has good taste!

TBF, most of the authors I listed every single French student has read at some point or another, you can hardly go through your scholarship without having read those, so not all were by choices ;)
Those I enjoyed the most in the list are Voltaire, Balzac, and Camus. Actually not a huge fan of Hugo, which is a very un-french thing to proclaim, and Zola is unbearable (which on the other hand seems to be a very popular opinion among anyone who isn't a litterature teacher).

For a slightly more recent author,maybe out of the "classics" definiotion we just discussed, I realize we didn't mention Saint-Exupéry. Le Petit Prince of course, but Vol De Nuit too.
