TheNix was into it.  I don't have time for another one of those now.

Pretty sure I've been saying for ages that Grim Dawn is awesome.

It's the best ARPG since Diablo 2. All the best parts of D2 combined with the best parts of Titan Quest (the classes). All set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world with a great art style to boot.

When I scroll quickly past your signature it seems to say "Let's go Penis!!"  :P


It's good to cheer your little buddy on as well.   ;D

Diablo 3 / Re: The "I never noticed that before" thread

I was running Keywardens today, thinking about trying to get a better Hellfire Amulet for my DH, and while chasing down Odeg (Act I), I ran into some unique purple guys I've never seen before.  There were three of them, all with wacky names that I don't remember, but one of them had the subtitle "Carries a Big Stick" and one of them was "Walks Softly".

And of course there's the saying "Talk softly, but carry a big stick".  But I'm pretty sure it said "Walks Softly".  The first one was dead before I saw his subtitle, so maybe his had something to do with talking.


Oh yeah, I can Google it.  I never think of that right away.  Apparently they were added in patch 2.5, and are:

Charchain - Carries Big Stick
Lyeless - Walks Softly
Branum - Talks Softly

It was pretty cool fighting four big purple dudes at once though.

Dammit, I want to see this.  I never have!

I never heard of it.  This likely surprises nobody.

Interested to see who else played and liked it.

So I finally got around to reading The Martian, by Andy Weir.  Yes, everybody who said it was amazing was right.  Yes, I loved the movie too, but liked the book even more.  Yes, there's no need for me to offer further praise for a book that half of GO has read.  But hey - I had to wait until I was ready for it, right? 
And yes, I'm giving it a 5.

You know, I have one of Peter Hamilton's books in my unread books pile.  It's been there a while though, and I don't remember which one it was.  That's kind of sad...
But not TOO sad, since I have about 150 other books in that self-same pile.   ::)
