Diablo 3 / Diablo 4?
« on: October 08, 2018, 09:57:53 AM »
I am sure you people have seen the rumors about a big announcement coming for Diablo.  Somehow I doubt that it will be D4.  I do wonder what the news will be.  Diablo pen and paper I bet!   :P

Gaming General / Borderlands Sanctuary
« on: September 29, 2018, 12:36:47 PM »
I figured I might as well start a dedicated thread...doesn't hurt.

So the technique I out lined for getting a bee works.  Just not as smoothly as you would hope.  The video I saw talked about an empty Orc village.  Nope.  Full, and worse, there is a mini-boss orc there that was four levels above me.  So you start and run as fast as you can to the platform with the two treants.  Turn around and kill the orcs that come up with you.  The mini-boss can't get up there.  Kill the two trees and rinse and repeat.

On my third run I actually got two Bees.  The first one dropped from the expected target.  I decided to try it out on the mini-boss and it the process of killing him another tree spawn and dropped the second bee.

Not sure which is better as the second has a second higher recharge delay.

Either way I am happy.

I am going to try Jackenstien again.  What a pain in the ass that boss is.

Sports / World Cup 2018
« on: June 14, 2018, 09:58:17 AM »
It's that time bitches!

I love the world cup.  My only regret about is that there are few teams that have a legit chance of winning.  I am always hoping for a first time winner.

IMO these are the teams with Legit chances to win who aren't in the obvious group.
  • Colombia
  • Belgium
  • Portugal
  • Mexico -- I don't really think they have a chance.
  • England -- Really don't belong on this list since they have won it before...but it has been something like 50 years
  • Croatia

Now is the list of teams mostly likely to win (in order of likelyhood):
  • Brazil
  • Germany
  • France
  • Spain
  • Argentina
  • Uruguay -- They have won it before...but chance wise they belong in the first group

Personally I am hoping for Colombia, highly unlikely (I was born there for those of you that don't know.)  After that I would enjoy a team from the first list.  In the second list I used to love Brazil, but I am a bit sick of them.  I lived in Brazil for six years so I do have an attachment to them.  Argentina hasn't won in a while so I wouldn't mind them.  After that I am really not a fan of any of them.  Germany is a really impressive team and I really hope they don't win.  A bit sick of Spain.  With Uruguay I really hate their best player Suarez; such an asshole.

First game starts in 2 minutes!

The Argument Chamber / Maine's Election Idea
« on: June 07, 2018, 02:20:26 PM »

WTF are you up to Pixie? :P

Seems much to complicated to really work out.  I applaud the goal of encouraging people vote for people that they might not otherwise vote for, but this doesn't seem to be the way to do it.

California primaries are now pretty interesting in that the top two candidates go on to the general election, regards of the party affiliation.  The goal was also to encourage people vote differently.

It will be interesting to see if these measures help.

Surprised that no one has posted this yet but here you go.

Rumor is that this will be a survival game and not a true Fallout game.

Other Tech Toys / Headphones -- Any one with Advice?
« on: May 29, 2018, 04:03:36 PM »
So I need new headphones.  They come cheap and go all the way up to stupidly expensive.

They come with mic and without.

They come in regular stereo, 7.1, and virtual 7.1.  I have heard that 7.1 comes with the equivalent of multiple earbuds and that that is a bad idea.  Those same people say virtual is the way to go.  I have read the opposite.  7.1 sucks if virtual.

I am mainly looking to get one for gaming.  I don't really need a mic but maybe one day I will learn to be social and would like to have one for yelling profanities at people I don't know.  Corded or not is not that important but in theory no cord sounds nice.  Comfortable and good sound (what a novel concept) is important.

Any of you people have any good advice?

Mass Effect / Still a Mess
« on: April 30, 2018, 09:36:09 PM »
I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Overall this game is still a mess.  I was expecting for things to be somewhat cleaned up.  The game is horribly laggy when I am in the Tempest.  Quests are still funky and a bit out of wack. 

At this point I am powering through the game so I can finish it.  The, as it is right now, is the best it is every going to be.  Such a waste.  They took the good name of Mass Effect and pissed all over it.  The idea of Andromeda was interesting and had potential.

At this point I have almost finished three of the main areas, Voeld, Haarval, and Eos.  Not sure how much of the game is left but I would like to finish it.

Mass Effect / All your Base Belongs to Me.

I am playing this game again and I think, therefore, that I own this sub forum.

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 www.tombraider.com.  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 sake...here 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 »
https://www.pcmag.com/news/358249/intel-chips-have-a-major-design-flaw-and-the-fix-means-slowe

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.

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.
