We'll get the EU to pay for it.

But this really like a 'Holy Fucking Shit...WTF do we fucking do now?'  Type of moment.

Yes. Very much this.

However, it is unlikely that the Government will lose the vote of no confidence. Which is hilarious, given there were 48 letters before Christmas from Tory MPs stating they had no confidence in May but, being in power matters more to the Tories than anything else.

As things stand, the UK is now stuck between two extremes of Remain and a No-Deal leave, both of which are actually shitty scenarios (although No Deal is clearly economically worse) and the political and social fall out will be extreme.

Whatever scenario we get, it remains fact that the actual sociopolitical causes of why people voted leave, will continue to be unaddressed. Because the causes of those problems never were the EU.

Gundam Breaker 3 is really good that it was suddenly 1am and I realised I needed to go to bed. Great combat system, fast and yet very involved. Sooooo many customisation options and things to unlock. This is going to have me absorbed for a while.

It is indeed Japanese with English subtitles. So best avoided if that sort of thing bothers you.

If I hadn't come into some inheritance money, I'd never have got it and stuck with my 1070ti. But, the money did appear and whilst most of it when on boring necessary stuff, I promised myself I would get myself a nice shiny graphics card.

Got Gundam Breaker 3 - Break Edition for my PS4. Hopefully get to play it tonight and see how it compared to Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, which was one of my PS3 favs and still is, as I'm still playing it.

Darkness just causally sliding his 2080Ti in there :D

Legit.  ;)

Elite Dangerous is easily the game I've played most in 2018 and continues to grow and improve. The upgrade to lighting in the latest patch has the game looking even more stunning, especially in VR on my 2080ti FE. The game also continues to surprise me and periodically alarm the shit out of me, because having a huge ship suddenly drop out of supercruise straight in your path is not a calm inducing event. It is BSG as hell though!

Yup, Hyperius with Zer0 is completely doable. I won't pretend I've perfected a technique yet but, once that godb0re hits, it is all over very quickly and you don't need all four bots up to achieve it.

I feel reasonably confident that Hyperius and Pete will be doable solo.

I'm much less convinced about the others.

Despite parts of my PC exploding earlier in the evening, I finished the main story of the Captain Scarlet DLC. The Leviathan fight took me ages, mostly because I didn't read any guides beforehand and was shooting it in the mouth rather than any of its weakspots. Eventually sussed out what I had to do and then it went quickly. I died to a sandworm after the boss was dead which was.....annoying.

Zero loot from the treasure room, which is an unnecessarily annoying bit of platforming.

Still I've unlocked Hyperius now and can have a go at b0reing him to death.

Chasing the main questline is the optimal route through NVHM and TVHM, as they're necessary to crack on to UVHM. Aside from using Tinder Snowflake as a levelling tool, there's no reason to do the DLC content until UHVM. Then its a case of using that content for variety.

I tried Murderlin's Temple yesterday.

It's horrible.

If time allows I'm going to finish the Captain Scarlet DLC and have a try at god-b0reing Hyperious to death.

After quite a few disastrous attempts, I worked out how to solo Son of Crawmerax.  He didn't drop anything nice and nor did his chests but, at least I know its doable. Loot midgets are far more profitable for far less effort.

You need to activate the CP each time you boot up the game. I'm using BCLMM to install the patches (makes it really easy) and each time I log in I just open the game console and type: exec patch.txt

As far as I can tell, you can switch freely between regular BL2 and the CP version. I know I have done when I've booted the game and forget to enter the patch command.

In terms of gameplay, it doesn't obviously change anything. It doesn't start raining items at you or anything and I've mostly only played Zer0 so far. I do find the changes to Zer0 make him a little more forgiving to play, which is nice. Axton has the most changes so may fiddle around with him tonight.

I've mainly be legendary midget farming (using the mod "No More Orders" as I'd already completed the Doctors Orders quest with Zer0). Had a couple of Pearls drop so far (the Stormfront sniper which is pretty cool and a better Tunguska than the one I already had) plus a few legendaries, including another Bee Shield. I need to start levelling my other characters so they can store more stuff.

The Midget farming goes pretty smoothly, mainly thanks to my arsenal of Pimpernels in each elemental flavour. Very satisfying getting the B0re effect on a Hyperion bot as its spawning in and having it explode before its even finished transforming into combat mode.

That does seem like some nice improvements.  Though the pimpernel and sandhawk were not given a boss run.

Apparently they have a 33% chance of dropping from H3RL
