For a moment there I thought about Sir Daniel Fortesqu rising from the grave one more time.

Glad they added Shaman to the build now if only they coughed up the Destruction spec.

I don't know what to play. I don't even feel that excited about it, really. I'll play to see the new zone and, to my disappointment, likely witness Druids being groomed for new class instead of Necromancer.

Who gives a fuck what the no-lifer leaderboard toppers can do with a build? You can knock at least 5-10 GR levels off of those estimates purely for not having 1000 Paragon, another 5 for not spending endless hours cultivating the very best stats on all of your gear, another 5 for not having a perfect Hellfire or immunity ammy... Not to mention the fact that builds meant for pushing the highest GRs often are not the most enjoyable to play or efficient in farming normal rifts, might require a specific group composition to support it, etc.

I can agree with this but only to a certain point when it comes to the bottom line of a build's ability. Take all of those no-life perks away and you've simply moved the problem to appear sooner rather than later. If you like TX farming, it's great but it's not the best and if you like GRs it's okay but not great.

Typical Blizzard balancing though. Buffing Firebirds to become competitive since it fell out of favour then gradually built it a coffin before being put to rest in more or less the same state as it was.

Linus Tech Tips has a video guide where he explains and puts together an eight core Xeon system for ~$150. Ran most games like a champ...

...but that could be due to the GTX 980 he mounted on it...

Really sucks to hear about our beloved Goblin King but at least he didn't have to see or hear about Ricky Gervais being retarded at the awards last night which likely gave me some kind of cancer.

I don't even watch awards but I was surfing and caught a glimpse of Katy Perry's barely-covered tits and it sort of stayed on in the background while I was sitting at my desk and I couldn't believe someone didn't go on stage and beat the shit out of him.

The problem I have with Grim Dawn is it feels like everything is for nothing. The community is small and it just feels too far under the shadow of Path of Exile and Diablo for me to really sink my claws in to. If I want a better baselone ARPG, I'll play PoE and if I want better combat, I'll play Diablo.

I recently gave GD the best attempt I have ever done and hit level 30 with a Stormbringer Druid build but by then I was practically out of all ambition to continue. I wasn't really a fan of Titan's Quest either so this is likely where that lack of interest stems from.

Regional restrictions are bullshit anyway, especially for movies.

I run Hola and cycle through three or four different sources but I am steadily becoming less in favor of maintaining a subscription to the point where I am starting to watch two-star programs to justify the monthly subscription.

Hola can be a pain in the ass though as it'll sometimes refresh the browser on its own while on Netflix. I've also tried ZenMate for the added security over Hola but the speed hit is fairly noticeable on my garbage connection while browsing so I usually keep it off and run additional browser security.

There should be some kind of yearly trophy award to give. Something like the Aluminum rod from Festivus.

I'd like to say 'good for him' but the dude is a twat who had a boner for paid mods on Steam and another douchey thing which escapes me at the moment.

Season Six Of Game Of Thrones Will Air Before Sixth Book Is Finished

I wasn't aware there was ever any indication it would be otherwise?

Same. I seem to recall HBO saying how the next book will be an adaptation of season six rather than the other way around but I could be wrong.

Yeah, that sucks. I guess no one was hurt? At least they caught the fucker. Was he insured?


No one was hurt, well, I don't know about dickhead. I'm not sure if he was insured but my brother's insurer is providing a rental pro bono and will be doing what insurance companies do behind the scenes.

I noticed some fresh scratches on my car from last night, which I'm none too pleased about, so I imagine pissed off is probably beyond what your bro is feeling. While I enjoy alcohol I hate much of the culture surrounding it; it's unfortunate so many view it as an idol.

He's actually not that upset. He got sold what was essentially a grade above Lemon from Honda as it was constantly breaking down once he took ownership so I joked to him that his burden has finally been put to rest since it's a write-off. The owner of the new car, on the other hand, is likely furious and rightly so.

Living in a fishing community, drunk drivers are about as common as teenage pregnancies and even if you kill someone while doing so, here's six months probation. I'm not even making that part up so unless the owner of the car is a Judge or someone important, nothing substantial will come of it as far as punishment is concerned.
