Gaming General / Shadow of the Tomb Raider
« on: March 20, 2018, 10:33:48 AM »
September 14th is the release day. 

Teaser trailer is out and available at  It is probably everywhere now.  There is also a puzzle to be done at the main site.  It was an annoying puzzle but there is going to be a puzzle a week I think until there is some other reveal.

Personally I can't wait as I love the rebooted series.  I think I have heard mention that this is the last of the reboot.  No clue if true.

BTW did anyone see the movie based on the first game?  My sister saw it and said it was fun, but to check your expectations at the door.

Diablo 3 / Season 13
« on: February 14, 2018, 10:09:57 AM »
So this might be a bit premature.

But I am curious as to the set rewards for next season.  At this early stage I am thinking of playing a HC Witch Doctor.  That would mean that if I am successful I would earn Jade Harvester.  The little I have read is giving me the impression that is not a great set for HC.

The reason I am leaning toward Witch Doctor is that I have very little time playing as one.  The other class that I don't have a lot of experience with is the Barb.  So that is another possibility.

At this point I have no interest in playing Crusader, Monk, Wizard.  The first two I have a lot of time on, while the Wizard I did not enjoy so much.

I am sure you know this info but for completeness are the rewards:
Barb: Might of the Earth
Wizard: Firebird
DH: The Shadow's Mantle
WD: Jade Harvester
Monk: Monkey King
Crusader: Invoker
Necro: Grace of Inarius

PCs / Intel Chip Design Flaw
« on: January 03, 2018, 10:01:41 AM »

Not sure yet how much of this is fear mongering.  The upshot is that a design flaw in the chip architecture allows code to be able access protected kernel memory.  The article above is stating that it might cause a 30% degradation of speed.  If true this is very very large problem.  The article states that it affects all Intel chips over the last decade.

Well it has been an interesting year.  Some good, some not.  As always it has been good hanging with you people.  I hope your holidays are full of joy.


Diablo 3 / I hate Blizzard But I Finally Gave In

That is right I have finally gave in and got my account unlocked.


I probably won't even recognize the game and I don't have the expansion.

Gaming General / A Nub's Journey into Elite Dangerous
« on: September 22, 2017, 04:50:54 PM »
Holy cow this game does not hold your hand.

I am in the training missions.  It took me about ten times before I was able to successfully get from one space station to the next.  i think I will content myself with lots of baby steps.

I am going to do the combat training next, I guess I have to start somewhere, but if I get into actual combat in the next 40 hours, probably longer, of game play I am sure to get my ass handed to me.

Gaming General / HL2: Episode 3
« on: August 28, 2017, 05:27:46 PM »
So one of the writers for HL has released an outline story for what would have been HL2: Episode 3.  You can see it here:

I assume most of you are already aware of this.  To me this is a little sad as it probably means that we will never see the real deal.

Gaming General / DOOM

Is free this weekend.

Tried a bit and I really like least the beginning.

Anyone played it?  How long is the solo campaign?  Is it worth it?

Gaming General / Grim Dawn is Fun
« on: June 26, 2017, 12:19:56 PM »
Finally got around to playing this and I have to say that I am hooked as of now.  This has been a very fun surprise for me.  Right now I am playing  a two handed Shaman who is somewhere around level 26.

I am finding this game to have more in common with D2 LOD than D3.  D3 was fun in its own way but was less about character building and more about End Game.  GD is more focused on different builds and the journey through the different levels.

I am curious if anyone else is playing this here.

Gaming General / FO4: Spoilers Allowed
« on: May 17, 2017, 05:17:16 PM »
Hey there.  I am taking a break from ME:A and went back to FO4.

For those of you that forget I am in the middle of playing an un-modded Survivor Mode character.  I am currently something like level 44.  Mostly playing an Automatic, Explosive, Luck build.  I am to the point where I have maxed out all my main skills.  I have about five unused points and I am looking for ideas of how to spend them.  Right now I am leaning towards strength and endurance.  Inventory space is always a pain in the ass.  More hps and less vulnerability infections and sickness is also sounding good.

Any advice from the peanut gallery?

Mass Effect / If Sheppard Came to Andromeda

It really isn't as bad as this.  So a cheap shot, but still amusing.
