  4. I have always admitted to gaming when asked. But I don't get into alot of details, unless it is a fellow gamer or in most cases a parent asking about details for his/her kid that games.
  5. We wrap up out Patron's openings for February with some great pulls, some great mythics, and even a showcase mythic! And the Build-A-Pack box passes out some great stuff, too! Then we crack a pack for a random comment from last week!

  7. Last week
  8. New update 2.3 is out. Patch notes below ... just in case you're interested. There are some nice QOL fixes.
  9. I used to not tell anyone except friends that i gamed. Kept it completely quiet at work, except to a few who i used to actually play DAOC with (in fact, they introduced me to DAOC and help level my first char). As i've gotten older, a few things have happened. 1. I care less about what people think. 2. I've stopped reaching higher in my career, and am not concerned about any perceptions of gaming in a professional sphere. 3. Gaming is cooler and more appreciated generally (in line with geek-cool and nerd-cool). 4. More people are playing and therefore find it acceptable. P.S. Loved Animaniacs.
  10. Subject line question really ... How do you describe your hobbies to others who may not share them? For example, do you shamefully - or proudly - admit you like to play video games, or do you avoid the subject altogether? Do you substitute in other less-judgementally neutral hobbies such as "hiking, biking, or camping outdoors"? (note: they're not full time exclusive) When a co-worker asks what you did last weekend, and you spent it wallowing in your virtual-digital slime pool - whether on some elaborate MMO raid, exploring the galaxy one planet at a time, attempting to slay an evil Sith Jedi Master (redundant, I know) in a light saber duel, or trying to survive solo in a hostile virtually frozen landscape - do you paraphrese-quote The Brain and explain somewhat melodramatically that you "did last weekend what you do every weekend, Pinky ... try to take over the world!" ... cleverly passing your benign mental affliction off with humor? Honestly curious how you and others treat the subject in your individual/collective social circles.

  12. Finished this game last night. Overall, i'd give it a solid 70%. It really felt like an SW game of old. If you were of an age to have marvelled at Dark Forces, you'll appreciate the feel of a SW game (i suspect the music score has as much to do with that as anything). I will confess that half way through i found the many boss fights to be too difficult on Jedi Master level, and decided to complete the rest on the next notch down (the bottom notch). Which was still difficult enough to be challenging and but not so difficult that it was no fun. It's not a long game. There are 5 main locations that you go back and forth to as the story unfolds. But the locations are rather large. As mentioned before, it plays out VERY much like the last 3 Tomb Raider games, and was built using the same, or similar, engine (Unreal). It is a superb engine, that made me gasp from the first few scenes. The characters are good. Your two main crewmates, are mostly dressing, but good dressing in that they contribute to the story, but not the action. The voicing is all brilliant - notably here is the captain, voice superbly by Daniel Roebuck (didn't know who he was). I have developed a soft spot for the sexy-voiced Mirren, a Russian-sounding witch, who appears later in the game. I would love to see more of her (no, not in that way). There's a lot to not be so proud of here. The game feels disjointed and too heavily scripted. As with TR, you are dumped in large spaces, but still on rails within that large space. Fighting mechanics can be a bit button-mashy at times. And there are a few bugs that don't destroy the game. I quit after several hours play due to losing too much progress between no-choice save points. But having restarted, found out that you can skip some of the bits a 2nd time round. Once it drop below £20, it's worth a punt. Graphically played great on a 1080 with a 4-series i7 and 16Gb. I'll leave you with a pic of Merrin.
  13. No. To be honest, i couldn't see the USB boot drive as being a permanent solution anyway. I think the performance would have been too poor. I just wanted to experience it and learn more about the servers limitations.
  14. Well, sorry to here that. I only did the usb drive on my home pc. Did you try the usb drive on your pc first to make sure it worked? In the video I watch the guy said he had problems with different versions of Rufus other than 2.2. Talking about slow, you could try a bootable DVD to use in that drive. Or Linux, since it is just going to be a storage unit. Good Luck and let me know how things go.
  15. I love the Expanse. Season 4 may not be as good as the first two seasons but it is better than season 3 that I felt was a bit off.
  16. Earlier
  17. ... or Grim Dawn. I agree. I have a few titles where the developers continue ongoing refinement, updates, and adding new content long after they published a "finished" product. I'll happily put up with having to download new content along with bug fixes and other updates.
  18. Built the USB and tried to get it to boot for a few bays with no luck. Just stuck on the swirly. Then bought a slimline-to-fat sata cable to swap the DVD drive for a bootable windows disk. Seems HP checks for genuine drives attached. Bastards. Talking to the server guys, one of the reasons they're selling off the servers is they found HP very difficult to work with. HP try to tie you in completely to their ecosystem. That's possibly what i'm seeing too. Almost given up. Borrowed a sata PCI card that i might try. My last option is to rebuild a raid array, as it originally was and copy my data onto it somehow (slow external USB drive possibly.)
  19. It's great when game devs show you that they love their game. Reminds me of No Man's Sky a bit.
  20. This week we brought on Zack, one half of the Commander Social podcast (recently nominated for Best MTG Podcast with a small audience for 2019!). We discussed Commander, video games, Star Wars and much much more. I hope you enjoy it and please help me in welcoming Zack to the show!

  21. This game appears to be a Steam exclusive, which is a shame. After poking around the developer's website, I discovered the game is also available to dirty console peasants in Xbox and PS4 flavors.
  22. Has anyone else here played the Long Dark? It's one of my favorite go-to games. I have roughly 400 hours into it and it just keeps delivering. And the story mode is amazing. They just released the 3rd chapter and it was just as good as the othewrs. Plus, the new chapters AREN'T extra dlc. They are included in the game, so you just dl them when they come out, free of charge.
  23. We crack open some Theros Beyond Death packs for our Patrons with some spice coming out of both the THB packs AND the Build-A-Pack box! Then, we give away a pack to a random comment from last week.

  25. Ok, the Cloning didn't work. But the Windows to Go on a usb stick did and it sees other drives, just not other C: drives. I can see both of my external drives just not the SSD with windows. So it should work for you, but I would try and use usb 3 if at all possible. Usb 2 is very slow and laggy but works. The first link shows you step by step and the second explains the whys and whats. Main thing is to have a usb stick that acts like a HDD or fixed drive, most usb sticks are not. The second link goes into this in detail if you need it.
  26. It's all gravy.
  27. Finally downloaded and installed Greedfall. Had high expectations, but at least the first chapter appears to be a walking simulator with brief combat sessions in between lengthy cinematic sequences. FWIW ... It may get better or it may continue to play as the thread-titled game is reported to play above. 2c
  28. well you do run sometimes as well, if that helps...
