  1. Old thread's at deleting age. Figured with a throwback style Sonic game and Brood War remastered both coming out in the last few days the title was apt. Speaking of, the Brood War launch stream yesterday with Day9, InControl, Tasteless & Artosis doing commentary with some old Brood War pros playing each other in a tournament was really fantastic (Artosis & InControl are also playing in it). I was never involved in the Starcraft scene and never watched much of it either but it was absolutely hilarious. If you were into the game or the esports scene at all you gotta check it out, I think it continues today. I picked up Hearthstone again with the new xpac just coming out. Sticking to my guns on not spending any more money on the game though, which means I'm lacking a lot of cards from the Un Goro expansion and this one but oh well. I got the priest Death Knight card as my free one for beating the prologue of the adventure and I slid that into my old Raza shadow priest deck with a few other changes to make it standard compatible. Been having a lot of fun with it. Free 2 damage every time you play a card is pretty insane, and makes you feel super smart when you plan out a complicated turn and it actually works
  2. God damn, Scoops is quick. It really is a shame, though the "single player is dying" drum's been getting banged on for years. I'm just glad the indie game scene is continuing to thrive and grow. That's where the real gold is nowadays anyway.
  3. Yep, David Krumholtz. I was pretty surprised by it when I first recognized him. No idea he'd put on so much weight. Apparently he had thyroid cancer, I wonder if that's what caused it.
  4. Oooof course they fucking have. EA and the rest of the Triumvirate of Evil major publishers are diving headfirst into the lootbox fiesta. If they can't market their pseudo-gambling bullshit they aren't interested. Fuck lootboxes. Sick of them.
  5. I had the same problem with the dialogue in the first episode. I'm not sure if it actually improved in subsequent episodes or if I just got used to it, but it's no longer bugging me. The rapid fire quipping is just so fucking weird. The exposition remains pretty heavy handed throughout though.
  6. His voice and the ASOIAF series, and through it my rekindled love of fantasy and reading, will always be inexorably linked. Rest in peace sir.
  7. Dennis? That'd be Dennis Rader. The BTK Killer. I haven't finished the series yet so I was assuming it would lead to the protagonists trying to track him down. Is that not the case?
  8. The rapid-fire, wise-cracking dialogue in the opening episode was off putting. Reminded me of a Kevin Smith movie. I like Kevin Smith, but that sort of thing doesn't work so well outside comedy for me. It felt like they were rushing to get a whole ton of exposition done in the first episode and none of the lines had any weight to them. Less of an issue after the first episode, but a lot of the dialogue still feels rushed to me. Also there's a moment in episode 3 or 4 where Ford & Tench go to a prison to talk to a new 'subject' and wait until they're already there and out of the car to discuss who the guy is/why they're there and bring the audience up to speed Usual TV stuff but it really stuck out for some reason and felt very forced. Kemper's scenes have really stolen the show though. I'm on episode 5 or 6 now and enjoying it overall.
  9. Give the internet 24-48 hours to do its thing and they'll be releasing this as DLC.
  10. So the murderous, sadistic elf in my party (Divinity OS2) all of a sudden is in love with my main character and wants to kiss all the time. This is perplexing because I have never once chosen any romantical sounding option in conversation with her. Guess she's just got a thing for chaotic good dwarven pirates and, well, who could blame her? She's gonna be disappointed though. The Beast O' The Sea only has eyes for Ifan. Also I finally got some chicken dinners in PUBG. Once solo and once in doubles with a friend. That game gets incredibly tense when it's down to the last few people in a tiny circle. Good cardio I'm really looking forward to both as well.
  11. I don't understand why they don't just use the same cover art as the physical books. It's so much better.
  12. So I want to go and see this but I've never seen the original and I want to watch that first. There are apparently about seventy two different versions of the first one though apparently. For you big fangirls & boys, which one is the best to watch?
  13. Can we all take a moment to appreciate just how awful the cover art for the audio versions of Robin Hobb's books is? I work in purchasing for a large charity. We're focused on disaster relief in the Caribbean right now so there's a lot going on.
  14. DJ kicked Ray Borg in the face while standing behind him, and finished the fight with a mid-air transition into arm bar. Video game shit. Absolutely incredible.
  15. Hello Rhae I'm good. Work is very busy lately with all the storms, but apart from that all is well. How are you doing?
  16. Now there's a name I haven't seen in a long time. Hello Zar And hello to the rest of you spammers.
  17. YAY. I am in again. I'll post my questionnaire soon.
  18. White Americans are really passionate about defending literal Nazis lately. I love how salty these assholes are getting about this game. Even better that it's a lot of the same people who like to pull the "It's just a game stop being so sensitive" card whenever someone criticizes the depiction of women or minorities or something.
  19. If anyone is interested, Claudio Sanchez (of Coheed & Cambria) and his wife have released three songs from their upcoming acoustic project for $5 (or more, you can set your own price). All proceeds going to Puerto Rico hurricane relief. I really like it.
  20. Does he sail directly? If I remember correctly on the way to Sevren he says he was shipwrecked off Junpui and then traveled overland for at least part of the journey after that. I don't remember anything about the return journey post-Ademre though.
  21. There's a big lake next to it on the map. I guess that's it.
  22. My memory is clearly crap, I could have sworn Sevren Low was on the water with docks and whatnot but Sevren is landlocked. Weird.
  23. I'm so sorry
  24. Not much to "decipher" here. Just the usual bullshit. "He's a presumably non-Muslim white man, therefore it's not terrorism."
