Meanwhile the President of the US had to declare that he is not, in fact, a Russian agent.

... with the best part being that he waffled and never actually denied it.


Theresa May should just be out without needing a no confidence vote, imo.

I have a 1080. There's no way to justify the expense of moving to a 2080. But I'm definitely planning on a CPU/mobo/RAM upgrade this summer, if all goes according to plan. :D

Basically, my boss offered me a salary increase of X dollars per week. I responded with "that's not enough. I'm worth much more than that." She went to HER boss, who agreed with me, and offered me an increase 4x higher, retroactive to the beginning of last pay period.

Happy new year! I just got a fat damn raise at work and I'm stoked and I have no one to tell, so I'm telling y'all. LOL

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is my GOTY. And Kassandra is one of the best female video game protagonists I've ever seen.

Currently playing CrossCode, which is a very solid contender too. And I don't even usually like pixel graphics games.

So are you building a new PC or not? You haven't posted in your other thread about parts. :P

Still playing this every day, several hours a day. It's not my GOTY but it is the most fun I've had with a game all year.

I haven't encountered virtually any of the supposedly rampant bugs and issues people (read: streamers) are bitching about. Game runs fine. I never get disconnected. It never crashes. I haven't hit any significant bugs... like the most serious bug I've had was a chinese bot that was way up the air somewhere instead of on the ground, so I had to shoot it out of the sky.

Also, I adore my current character (my 4th one). <3

I'm also somewhat out of the loop. What I do know:

AMD Ryzen CPUs seem to be the way to go for bang-for-buck right now.

Nvidia 10-series GPUs are great. 20-series are not enough better to justify the price. Depending on what you want to spend and how serious you like your graphics (as well as what resolution you play), you want 1060, 1070, or 1080. "ti" suffix is better. Basically 1080ti > 1070ti = 1080 > 1070 > 1060

SSDs are the way and the light, but more specifically an m2 NVME one is stupidly fast. My m2 Samsung SSD is literally 6 times faster than my basic Samsung EVO SSD, and I have the benchmarks to prove it.

With a nice fast SSD (for boot and your most special games), add on a 4tb SATA drive and you're golden. (I have 1x m2 SSD, 1 x SSD, 1 x 4tb SATA, 1 x 1tb external SATA... covers all my needs)

Motherboards: Asus used to be the thing. I am now a bit averse to them, having had some issues. Personally, I steer toward MSI these days. YMMV.

RAM: Uh, it's kinda all the same anymore. Just pick something that has the right speeds. 16GB is the minimum now. 32GB is good.

Power supply: the usual suspects are still good: EVGA, Corsair, etc.

Cases: I'm stupidly fond of Coolermaster cases and will probably never build with any other brand ever again. They're just such a treat to work in and the craftsmanship is top notch every time.

Suddenly I'm keenly aware that I have wasted my life until now.


I want to be designing package theft boobie traps. And shit like that.

I have a collection of Lego Elves. I think they're adorable. Fight me.

Diablo 3 / Re: D3 on PS4

That said: if you buy it on PS4, can you still use your same Blizzard account or do you have to start all over?
