The Argument Chamber / Blizzard and China
« on: November 08, 2019, 08:38:27 AM »
I am unsure how to title this one.  In the game thread we started joking about which game publisher is the worst.  This a a continuation of that, but I didn't want to pollute that thread with this.  Below is a link to an article about Blizzard's ineptness.  I think it is worth a read.

Gaming General / Skyrim Again
« on: August 22, 2019, 10:31:37 PM »
So I am installing Skyrim.  It is the new special edition, whatever that means.

Questions:
  • I hate modding.  What is the bare minimum that I need to figure out in order to make the game look good? 4k.
  • I don't even remember the class I played the first time.  Is there some unusual, fun, path that I should try?
  • I know that there are some annoying aspects of this game.  But I forget what they are, though I am going to guess inventory management.  Any tips to minimize this?

Other general pointers welcome.

A show based on the Pratchett and Gaiman book of the same name.

I haven't read it and I am a fan of Gaiman.  I never could get into Pratchett but I know you guys here are huge fans.  It looks well made and we can hope they haven't made a hash out of it.

Honestly, I need to play Divinity 2 first, but this is still pretty interesting.

General Discussion / Profile [2]

So in the little blue bar under your Avatar we have a menu system:

Home -- Help -- Search -- Profile -- My Messages -- Members -- Logout

Now maybe I am being an idiot but next to my Profile I have [2].  That wasn't there at all a while back.  Yesterday it had [1].  Today [2].  I have no idea what it indicates.  If I try clicking on it I get nothing.

Gaming General / BL2 Play Through
« on: April 03, 2019, 11:09:24 AM »
Any of you good people interested in forming a group to play through BL2 in multiplayer? 

The idea is to choose a night and play two hours or so every week?  It should be a good time to do with the fresh graphics upgrade.

Gaming General / Borderlands 3
« on: March 27, 2019, 05:22:39 PM »
The teaser trailer is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkHNbsQMxPI

There is a lot of hidden info in this one.

It includes a golden key code c35tb-wsgst-txbrk-jjhgh - It supposedly unlocks more keys and a skin in BL2.

I can't wait for this game.

Gaming General / Stadia

Google's gaming platform if you haven't heard.

Interestingly they are talking that this platform is going to work without local hardware and installation.  I find this difficult to believe that they have figured out a way to stream the performance necessary to make this work.  Conceptually this has been something I knew people were trying to tackle, but I have trouble believing that it has been solved.  Shit, I feel like I can't always count on Xfinity to give me a stable stream and they are the fastest ISP in my area.

So right now I am filing this under cool idea, but I will believe it when I see it.

Proving once and for all that the whole is greater than the parts.  Now we just need a 15 to 20 hour movie covering the whole story.

Movies & TV / Anime Recommendation
« on: February 21, 2019, 06:38:17 PM »
I have limited anime experience. I've seen Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and Avatar (if you count that).  All were good and I'm looking for more.  Ideally it wouldn't be available on Netflix.  As a side note I am not a big fan of anime that sexualizes the female characters  when they look like they are teens.

Any suggestions?

Music / What are you Listening To?

Just realized that we didn't have one of these threads.  Narsica let me down with regard to that.  :P

You might recognize that song from Silence of the Lambs.  So good.

Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / D3 on PS4
« on: December 10, 2018, 09:52:59 AM »
So I got this.  Mainly for the coach coop.  For the record...coach coop is fun in D3.

I always new that D3 was design for the console and holy cow is that right.  The game plays better on the Ps4.  Graphics are meant for the big TV.  Coop, at least couch coop, smooth as butter.

It was obvious that the skill system was designed for console and that also works well.  Inventory system is so much better. 

WTF.  IMO it really is night and day.

So much excitement!

This looks freaking amazing.  And if there is a company I trust to deliver it is Obsidian!

Game wise 2019 is shaping up brilliantly!  This and BL3 (fingers crossed).  I will be busy with these games!
