    Geez, 90 hours is short now? I realize I spent well over 100 hours on various Fallouts, but still... 90 hours is a lot of game. Remember when RPGs were like 30 hours?

    Yeah. Same here. I wish i hadn't now. I've started replaying the end game, with the other main alternative path. Having killed the main end boss once, i'm not sure i have the commitment to do it again though (he just killed me and i rage quit - he seems MUCH hard this time.)

    Gardens of the Moon

    From what I understand Gardens of the Moon is the hardest to follow & least enjoyable of the series. I've started reading Deadhouse Gates, here's hoping it's not as difficult. There are a crap ton of characters in GotM.
  6. This has been both good and bad lol
  7. True, but at least they are on the up swing and the Chiefs took them out.

    That's good to know, I've been doing a ton of side stuff.
  9. Pretty sure i did lotro lifetime too. It doesn't stick in my memory as i was more than happy with the playtime it bought me. Loved that game. The atmosphere and "feel" of it. The music was superb, and i enjoyed questing with pals. It's where i first met Wolphard. Wonder how he's doing?
  10. Yeah, me too. That's why when LOTRO came out with their Lifetime offer, I jumped on it ... twice. But comparatively, I got my money's worth.
  11. When I added up how much I spent on daoc I was more than a little surprised 🤪
  12. Depends on how many months you paid the subscription fee. There is a break even point.
  13. Last week
  14. They had the Chiefs right where they wanted them. For the first time, I questioned the coaching staff and some of their decisions. KC was missing a corner and our plays were run, pass to rb, pass to rb. On D, 3rd and 14 with a back up QB whose last pass was a terrible pick and we rush 3. Either way, there is much optimism. It will be nice going into the offseason with a settled QB and established staff. However, those opportunities are very rare and you have to cash in.

    Some spec screens. I had to go back several hours, as the closing scenarios strip/change some of your gear and stats. I'd suggest not doing the random quests at the expense of proper quests - the ones in your quest log. Some of the writing is excellent.
  16. @Dunnar that was a painful loss, they had a chance at the end. I was already thinking how much tickets to Ohio would have been to watch next weeks game there 😆 Considering how much the Browns under performed last year, they made a really big leap and have some good years ahead.
  17. These are pretty good, finally something with a lighter tone.

    That explains why I've heard people say the game is short and I'm going through the world thinking it's huge. I didn't realize you can level past some content. I tend to take my time through games like these and save the main quest for later, so I understand 90 hours being on the short side. Didn't realize you can upgrade weapons, but I don't recall having seeing Widow-Maker yet.
  19. Ouch. Not sure what's worse, paying a sub every month for years and years for a single game or buying a lifetime sub and leaving after a month.
  20. Finally, a good commercial series. This is the first time in a long time that I will watch a commercial and every single one of them are hilarious. Don't think anyone outside of the US sees these. Below are a few ... Trying to think of the last good one that made me laugh like this.

    I completed the main storyline last night, and, i'd guess, about 70%-85% of the primary quests (inifinite random quests are... well... infinite). I went from thinking the game was absolutely huge, to realising it's not all that big at all. One of the shortest AAA games i can recall, with about 90 hours played. The 30% of quests unplayed exist, simply because they go grey - not enough time to get through them all without levelling past them through natural development doing them (if that makes sense). I play completionist/explorer style. So if 90 hours seems a lot, it's really not all that much compared to "normal" gamers. My primary tip for uber-ness, is to acquire a precision power assault rifle called the Widow-Maker. You can acquire it quite early on in the game. Don't be fooled by it being a blue quality weapon. It does two things very well. You can charge it, by holding the fire button, and 2nd, it can pass through a number of walls - i don't know how many, but if you can see the enemy trace outline, you can usually shoot it. I did 2 more things to help out (with all weapons, but in particular with this one). I capped out crit chance - i managed 59%, but could possible have gone higher at the expense of something else, and i capped out crit dmg% - i don't think you can see a stat on this. So aside from 2 bosses, i could one shot anyone with a headshot. You can get higher DPS from the orange sniper rifle (like 10 * higher), but it's dreadfully slow, and pretty useless in close combat. Widow Maker is also decent in burst mode, non charged shot. I finished the game at level 38, i got Widow-Maker at around L15, and it was still my main weapon at the end. BTW, you can upgrade weapons using crafting - which you absolutely should. 2nd tip. The orange leg mod allows you to jump mid air, hover for a bit, and reduces landing damage. Sounds good. but the purple mod below it, just give a power jump about 2-3 time normal. Having tried both, the purple was waaay more useful in more situations. Forget orange. 3rd tip, the arm mod that fires rockets is pretty damn useful. It has AoE, so great with groups of nasties, and you can change the damage type for electric shock, which pwns bots and drones.
  22. I had to look. It went free to play many years back. It's going to be 10 years old in 2 weeks time! I think this takes the prize for me as most money sunk with least time played. I bought the lifetime sub almost as soon as released, and cancelled about 1 month later.
  23. It was finished almost two years ago IIRC, it kept getting moved back. It was supposed to be released December 2019 after getting delayed before that. Then because of the pandemic it kept getting pushed all year. Possessor Via IMDB I love the world this movie establishes. It's really interesting and I want more of it. When the movie ended, I thought it was a little abrupt but after thinking about it I understand what they were going for and it's not obvious at first. This universe could easily be used for a television series (would have to be HBO or Netflix) or a sequel. Grade: 7 out of 10
  24. We had similar take aways from this book. It reminded me a lot of films like Goodfellas. Thanks for sharing those resources, it's nice hearing more from the author. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6I7T5zCCd8
  25. I used to post my mountain bike pictures on Instagram. Since I stopped using Instagram, I figured I would post them here instead. These are from the Lower Cedro trails in Tijeras, N.M. It's a short drive from Albuquerque and I have to visit them more often. Found myself getting lost yesterday, but still had a blast. Sometimes the scenic views look so beautiful they don't look real.
  26. God, that'd be great. Then if they could do the same with Star Trek Online...
