    VR biking

    I'd sweat all over that thing and it would be fogged up in 10 minutes. 😬
  3. Today

    I'll just leave this here as a reminder ...

    VR biking

    Has anyone tried it? With this ...https://www.virzoom.com/ Looks like you can take a stationary bike, Oculus and a $20 sensor and ride anywhere. I'm tempted because it might keep me interested. And its an excuse to get an Oculus.
  7. I wish it would have been better .... hahahahaha!
  8. Couldn't agree more. Watched it with Son and Wife. We didn't make it past the 30 minute mark. Cheezy is good when done well (Ragnarok), but this was plain bad. I'm shocked it got green lit given the lack of films out there right now.
  9. I’ve had a couple of annoying bugs, but nothing game breaking.
  10. A couple hundred pages into GotM and I’m a little lost. Almost feels like this is the second book in a series or I’m missing something. Is this common for new Malazan readers?
  11. Go for a weapon that allows you to mine the dirt. Then search for relics buried beneath the ground. I can't remember much more than that - there is a scanner that tells you whether any are on planet IIRC. The reason being, they're the biggest single boost to my bank balance in the game for me. Like ridiculous. Another thing that is ridiculously valuable are some of the prehistoric bones. Many are worth just a lot, but some are worth a fortune, and it seems random, but not too rare. Yeah... avoid those sentinels once they begin to aggro you.
  12. It's been a while since I last played, but you should follow the main quests in the early game which serves as a tutorial of sorts. You actually need to do this (or did last I played) so you don't harm your ability to continue. And there are some world changes that occur after you've met certain milestones. More on that ... the planet you start on will have negligible sentinel activity ... meaning you can harvest flora, and mine minerals, in front of them and they won't do anything about it. That is not true after you've reached a certain milestone (iirc, going into space for the first time), so sentinels afterward will be highly aggressive if you damage a planet. You will still need to harvest materials, but you'll have to do it more carefully while avoiding sentinel notice. Otherwise they will hunt you down for violations and there is an endless supply so you can never win against them; the best you can do is run away and hide, live to fight another day. So with the above said, stock up on your first planet. Harvest wood, primarily, but also oxygen, nitrogen, and ... umm ... cobalt(?), iron(?) ... sheesh, I can't remember. Anyway, the basic supplies. If your planet has a hazardous atmosphere (quite likely), find a cave in which to shelter periodically - and especially during storms! - to allow your suit to recharge. Don't forget that time stops when you use your camera (assuming you're playing solo and not multiplayer), so you can use the camera mode up at as high of an elevation as it'll let you to get a better view of the surrounding terrain. This can be helpful for finding caves, resources, or other points of interest while on foot. Ships (yours and NPC's) will not have hyperdrives until you complete the main quest steps for them. So at minimum, you'll want to at least progress far enough in the main quest to have hyperdrives and to be able to construct fuel for those drives. The early main quest steps will introduce you to just about every aspect of the game (just about), including base building. Don't worry too much about where you start your first base, because you'll be limited in your selection. Just complete the quest steps and then salvage your minimal base before moving on and searching out a better or more desirable location. Always refuse the first capital ship offered to you. Always. The first one is always the lowest class available. The next one is likely much better. The first encounter is somewhat scripted, but the next ones will come regularly after so many hyper-jumps (I forget the number how many). Save before hyper-jumping, and if there is a combat upon entry and the capital ship is not of a style or class that you like, you can save scum to try and get a better one. The game is about exploration ... and it is explicitly not about combat. So keep your combat expectations very low. First starting out your weapon will not be powerful enough to kill bigger, meaner critters - or sentinels, for that matter. Don't worry about upgrading quickly. Keep an eye on the weapon offerings in space stations (mandatory stops, btw) and inside planetary minor trade centers. The higher class, the more expensive, but the more potential slots available for upgrades. Also ... check the other thread for a wealth of tips and suggestions. Good luck, traveler.
  13. Last week
  14. Close to the end now and found zero serious bugs. 1 that I had a workaround for.
  15. The dates for the sale: January 14th – 20th, 2021 Link: https://mlwangbooks.com/spfbo-finalist-super-sale/ There are quite a few on this list that have high ratings on Goodreads. The SPFBO was started by Mark Lawrence, author of The Broken Empire series, among many others. SPFBO: Self Published Fantasy Blog Off, a competition to find the best self published fantasy book for a given year.

    Windows 10

    I saw a similar deal for about $20 on CDKeys or something similar. I've used them many times for games and found them legitimate and good.
  17. Not here, no. If my wife had been interested in the device, then i might have. But it's currently gathering dust with about 2 hours use in total.
  18. Maybe I'm just lucky and haven't had many bad bugs yet, but is it really that bad?? That is, other then the problems on older consoles - that's bad.
  19. Bought the game during the Steam Winter sale. The problem I'm finding is what to focus on in the early game, what to prioritize or what can wait until later. Any vets have tips? Thanks

    I think it depends on where the copy was purchased from originally
  21. Have any of you tried to jail break your Kindle? Always nervous to do this kind of stuff, not sure it's worth the hassle. https://liliputing.com/2020/12/jailbreak-for-amazon-kindle-paperwhite-current-gen.html?amp#csi=0&amp_tf=From %1%24s
  22. Mostly aimbots from what I've read. That's true, $90 is relative but these cheat making companies must be making a ton of money - and that means the game devs will really go after them.
  23. This is the one I use for our forums: https://twitter.com/CD_forums I've found before that sometimes I'll look up people that I enjoy listening to or watching ect. and find out they aren't the nicest. So sometimes I'll avoid following certain people.
  24. I bought my share of gold in DAOC days. So i'm a little conflicted.

    An Illusion

    I couldnt see it on my PC. But when I saved the image to send it to another device, I saw it in the thumb nail.
