Big sale for Borderlands!  Come join the fun.

i got this (B2) a couple weeks ago after watching this thread for a while. base game, absolutely no idea what mods i should be thinking about. figured i'd play w/o for a while. playing Axton, just over lvl21 or 22. it's a departure from my usual stuff, but having fun for the most part even though i tend to die a lot.

nah, they're coming for rural minnesotans' summer/lake cabins. granted, that's almost to canada.

She (Shields) warned the New York Times that the migrants, now 2,000 miles from the U.S. border, could reach Texas and simply keep walking, all the way to Minnesota woods country, where they would take over lake homes and cabins – after they got done taking our jobs and our crime, of course.

“What’s to stop them?” asked Shields. “We have a lot of people who live on lakes in the summer and winter someplace else. When they come back in the spring, their house would be occupied.”

But since the migrants are on foot, and will no doubt have to stop for bathroom breaks, the Great Lake Home Threat isn’t expected to gain immediacy until sometime next year, and possibly later, depending upon how their shoes hold up.

anyone see the trump caravan ad yesterday, debuted during the packers/pats game? seems most of the networks (even fox) that played it (some turned it down from the get-go) have decided not to play it again. worst political ad i've ever seen, worse than willie horton... and crap did i feel old when i realized how long ago that was. but hey, david duke loved it so i guess it hit the target audience.

I would love to see, and would pay for, an expansion to D3 or a new class or even both. As long as they have a solo PC version, I'm good.

watched the predator and venom recently. both pretty cheesy. venom was better. 

just finished season 3 of daredevil. overall a thumbs up. fair amount of backstory/character development for the supporting cast. kingpin for the win, d'onofrio's perfect.

This is just one more step in what feels like an inescapable trip to a fascist state.

was the next step pipebombs mailed to the opposition?  *check*


Diablo 3 / Re: Season 15 - Anyone playing?

Just figured out the IK set dungeon is ridiculously easy

yeah, if there's an easier dungeon than that one, i don't know what it is. picked barb in past seasons just for that reason.

my wizard died after i triggered unstable anomaly and unwisely forged on in a GR. started a replacement wizard; had a gem of ease and most of the replacement gear i needed (gems not included) so it hasn't taken long to get back up.

Books / Re: 2018 Reading List?
« on: October 09, 2018, 11:04:25 AM »
so haven't updated in ages. added the ones i remember. i think there were a bunch that i don't, but so it goes.

got caught up with the expanse series. the last book (persepolis rising) surprised me a bit right off the bat with something that i wasn't initially sure i liked, but i think ended up working reasonably well. cliffhanger as usual.

the hike; fantasy/satire with a fair amount of social commentary packed in. fantastic ending.

the great ordeal; baker's next entry in "the aspect emperor" series. the series as a whole is a step down from his "prince of nothing" series, and this book is so far the weakest of this series. fairly unpleasant reading at points. still picked up the next (and supposedly last) in the series (the unholy consult) which is in my to-read pile.

sleeping giants; meh. first in a series, don't plan to continue. giant robot/vehicle thing along the lines of pacific rim, without the monster/alien element, tho i gather that probably happens later in the series. hated the format- story was told as a series of interviews of the main characters.

contagion; also a meh. pretty standard scifi/horror stuff, seemed aimed/written at/for a teen demographic. didn't realized that when i picked it up. comparable to the 'divergent' series from what i recall of that. also a cliffhanger, also don't plan to continue the series.

autonomous in progress. so far, much more promising.

have either the previously mentioned book by baker or the tangled lands by paolo bacigalupi and tobias buckwell up next.

1. Spoonbenders, Daryl Gregory  - 2.5/5
2. Artemis, Andy Weir - 4/5
3. invasion of the body snatchers, Jack Finney - 4/5
4. the best horror of the year vol 9, ed by Ellen Datlow  - 3/5
5. the last exodus, Paul Tassi - 1/5
6. nemesis games, James Corey - 4/5

7. babylon's ashes, James Corey-  4/5
8. persepolis rising, James Corey- 4/5
9. the hike, Drew Magary - 4/5
10. the great ordeal, R Scott Baker - 3/5
11. sleeping giants, Sylvain Neuvel, 2/5
12. contagion, Erin Bowman, 2/5

13. autonomous, Annalee Newitz- in progress
