Gaming General / Nintendo Switch
« on: January 08, 2020, 09:10:36 PM »
Can someone please explain the Switch to me?

Is it a console? Handheld? Both?

I want a Nintendo console to play at home with the kids 2-4 player games and such, is Switch what I want?

The online stores have left me...perplexed.


Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / Season 19: The Season of Eternal Conflict
« on: November 12, 2019, 11:07:19 PM »
New season starting soon, woo!

Information thus far..
    The buff for Season 19, the Season of Eternal Conflict, has been added:
    • Pandemonium
      • For the duration of the Season, all players will have a stacking buff that that persists as long as you have hit or killed a monster within the last 5 seconds
        • Each stack gives 0.05% movement speed and 0.1% bonus damage. This bonus caps at 50% movement and 100% damage (1000 stacks)
        • In addition, after reaching a certain number of kills in a row, a power is unleashed, dealing an amount of scaling damage based on player level and difficlistty or Greater Rift level:
        • 15 Kills: Five massive energy twisters are unleashed
        • 30 Kills: Dark Geysers form beneath enemies
        • 50 Kills: Exploding Chickens seek and destroy
        • 100 Kills: Corpses rain from the sky
        • 150 Kills: A wide Frost Nova freezes enemies
        • 200 Kills: Treasure chests fall from the sky
        • 300 Kills: A ring of fire englistfs everything
        • 400 Kills: Meteors hail from above
        • 500 Kills: Angels descend upon the battlefield to fight for your cause
        • 1000 Kills: ? ? ?

      • Powers are tracked at a group level; this means only one power can be active in play at a time, regardless of the number of players in a group

New sets!

    New Crusader Set: Aegis of Valor
    • 2-Piece Bonus: The charged bolts from Fist of the Heavens has a chance to cast another Fist of the Heavens
    • 4-Piece Bonus: Hitting with Fist of the Heavens reduces damage taken by 1% for 5 seconds. Stacks up to 50 times
    • 6-Piece Bonus: Increase the damage of Fist of the Heavens by 10,000%

      New Monk Set: Patterns of Justice
      • 2-Piece Bonus: Sweeping Wind gains the effect of every rune
      • 4-Piece Bonus: Each enemy within Sweeping Wind increases your movement speed by 5%. Stacks up to 10 times.
      • 6-Piece Bonus: Attacking with Tempest Rush while Sweeping Wind is active will temporarily increase the size of Sweeping Wind after hitting over 30 times within a short period. Sweeping Wind damage is increased by 10,000%

      There's other item changes that I am too lazy to list and format.

      According to this resource, the sets should follow cycle and be the same as S15:
        Barb: Wastes
        Crusader: Roland (unless it's the new set)
        DH: Unhallowed
        Monk: Raiment (unless it's the new set)
        Necro: Rathma
        WD: Helltooth
        Wiz: Tal Rasha

        This all subject to change I guess, but all seems feasible.

        Think I might run with Necro or Barb. Though if Monk and Crusader have the new sets as quest rewards I might be tempted. Definitely going to roll in HC this season though.

        Who else is in?

      Anyone else playing?

      Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / Season 16: The Season of Grandeur
      « on: December 30, 2018, 11:44:48 PM »
      Did I miss the thread?

      Season 16: The Season of Grandeur sounds pretty dope maaan. Starts January 18th.
      I think I will jump in and play for all the juicy power creep (or leap as the it appears to be).

      Special seasonal buff:
      Season 16: Season of Grandeur
      -The buff for Season of Grandeur has been implemented
      -This buff gives all Seasonal players the legendary power from Ring of Royal Grandeur
      -This buff does not stack with additional Ring of Royal Grandeur (either equipped or in Kanai's Cube)
      -Unlike previous Seasonal buffs, this buff will not apply to Non-Seasonal players
      -When completing a Greater Rift level 70 solo for the first time in a Season, a Primal Legendary is guaranteed to drop from the Rift Guardian

      Gift sets are:
      Barbarian – Immortal King’s Call
      Crusader – Seeker of the Light
      Demon Hunter – Natalya’s Vengeance
      Monk – Uliana’s Stratagem
      Necromancer – Trag’Oul’s Avatar
      Witch Doctor – Spirit of Arachyr
      Wizard – Vyr’s Amazing Arcana

      And all sets have had their % damage bonus double, tripled, quadrupled or more in some cases  :o

      SO who will be playing?

      General Discussion / Marijuana
      « on: December 17, 2017, 09:20:34 PM »
      This topic was lightly touched upon elsewhere in the forum, so I thought some of you might like to talk about it some more.

      Not aiming for political controversy here of course, though I'm not dictating thread content either :)

      I'm been a marijuana user on and off since about 18 years old. Started as recreational, lately it's more about pain relief. Most of the time I can manage alright with the pain I have, but sometimes it is nice to be pain-free for a few hours.

      I strongly believe in MJ as an alternative medicine, but only for scientifically proven uses. I see claims of curing cancer and such, and I'm not on board with that, but pain relief and inflammation absolutely. Having said that, I don't actually care why people use it as it is their choice to do so, but if someone tells me it cures cancer I want to see the peer-reviewed study.

      I've never been a daily user, nor do I use much at one time. I always aim for just-enough, which my stoner friend thinks is both 'weak' and amusing (all in good fun though). I don't enjoy being too stoned because I can't think straight, but there is a nice point I reach where obsessive worries are forgotten and 'normal' activities become more enjoyable (TV/games/socialising).

      In Australia, it is all still very much illegal. I find it amusing that the U.S. is more progressive than us in this matter, since most Australians like to harp on about how great our healthcare is here compared to there. I'm very envious of the available strains and the quality you guys have in the States.

      There was a time in Aus when owning 1-2 plants was 'decriminalised', meaning if you got busted it was confiscation and a $ fine, but no criminal record. Sadly this was repealed a few years ago, so I no longer cultivate. Though it is something I really enjoy doing.

      That's all I have to say at the moment, hopefully you other MJ enthusiasts aren't too shy to speak up and have a chat about the magical herb.

      Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / Item Finds!
      « on: December 14, 2017, 06:02:46 PM »
      I couldn't see a thread for items we've found and I don't always see the posted items in the season/non-season progress threads, so I thought this could do with it's own place.

      I'd like to see awesomely rolled items, cool Ancients and Primals. Especially like to see groan-worthy Primals or hilarious item names :)

      Screenshots necessary ^_^

      I'll start off with my very first Primal item.
      (not sure if attachment displays in post...trying anyway, if it looks shit I will upload it elsewhere and link)

      Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / Out Of Memory Error
      « on: November 18, 2017, 03:56:34 PM »
      Started getting this error a few days ago, basically stating that D3 has crashed because of low memory.

      Never happened before though and I have 8GB RAM (same as always). Literally nothing has changed since I installed the game, but now this is happening.

      Just lost my fairly good DH to the error. Searching suggests that it can be caused by a memory leak in the 64-bit version (but i have always used 64-bit and it wont let me launch in 32). Others suggest to small a paging file, low RAm, low VRAM etc. Problem is, nothing about my system has actually  changed.

      Anyone had the same error?
