The only bad thing about building my PC is that my (now ancient) Antec 900 case is just too damn small for the latest components. It was never that spacious to begin with, but installing anything now is like trying to pack an elephant into a Porsche, and I'm too cheap to get a new case when this one still does the job.

Armchair scientist strikes again!

Low-mineral
water markedly: 1.) increased diuresis (almost by 20%, on average), body water volume, and
serum sodium concentrations, 2.) decreased serum potassium concentration, and 3.) increased the
elimination of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium ions from the body.

Except for the boss fight, the whole first area was pretty easy for me. Jahar has ice elemental now, and one of my PCs can call either spider or fire elemental. It seems enemies prefer targeting whatever is closest (which is usually my summons) rather than actually doing something intelligent like, say, filling my poor mage's face with arrows.

Developers that work their asses off for two years solid probably don't come into the the office release day saying, "Well, let's get some quality DLC out ASAP!" So the DLC is left to a third party who either can't match the quality or consistency of the initial product.

I wouldn't recommend Divinity II. While not bad per se, it is fairly repetitive and uninspired. Dungeons are the worst kind of awful, the castle attack missions are tedious after the first, and combat is very bland. The game lacks the charm of its predecessor and instead charts a course for the mainstream.

Beyond Divinity is an atrocious game best forgotten.

Seems when the entire game is won by a single score at the very end, it does seem more luck than skill.

Did you see the goal? Nothing lucky about it.

It isn't meaningful to me until it impacts gameplay, and I don't find 30fps to impact gameplay to me.

There is an enormously evident difference between 30 and 60 when playing a video game, especially in any game requiring shooting or driving, or some other mechanism highly dependent on user input and timing. The faster the screen is updated, the faster the user can make his inputs accurately and on time.

Take a game normally played at 60FPS and lock it to 30 and tell me you can't notice anything off.

Back from the beach whereupon I read:

Margaret Atwood - Handmaid's Tale
China Mieville - Embassytown
Neil Gaiman - Neverwhere

I'll take something from Gaiman over Zelazny any day. Amber was so god damn tedious.

They probably realized all their things that made single player missions work (well, heavy scripting, anyways) wouldn't work with four people in a sprawling environment unless they instanced, so they said, "fuck it."

I'd be happy if it ran at even 30FPS on my (fairly capable) PC. As it stands there are specific areas where the frame rate just fucking nosedives (bridge in act 3 being the worst offender).

The biggest joke of all?

I can't play today. Disconnecting 5-15 minutes after starting any game. But, hey, at least somebody gets their achievements, right? Maybe there should be one for reaching 10,000 disconnects.

You know those computerized soda machines showing up at places like Burger King?

But that would require I go to a Burger King. The only fast food I eat anymore is Chipotle...

I can't drink diet versions of beverages I grew up consuming the regular versions of, but I've found some palatable diet drinks. Cherry 7up and cherry pepsi are my favorites.

News Comments > Diablo III Patch Ditches Legendary Crafting Materials

While it was certainly lame entering/exiting games until a particular bounty target showed up, this doesn't sound like a good solution. Rifts are boring. Until they make them less so, any option for play besides rifting is a good thing. Just doing bounties doesn't provide reward enough to compete with rifting.

For the record, this is more or less the only game I've been playing for the past couple of months. I like bumping into other players and seeing them do crazy shit, checking their gear, and then telling myself I've got to find whatever it is they're wearing.

The patch notes also said, "We know the monk sucks, we plan on making him not suck in the near future." I'm glad they finally noticed.

One of Pinball FX2's tables *is* a psuedo RPG. Monster battling, loot, and leveling up.

Also, this game looks awful. Makes me think of that ill-fated Unreal-engine title of yesteryear, Adventure Pinball.

Been using DualShock 4 for months. With wireless.

Does XB1 pad really have so little appreciation that nobody has it working on PC?
