Don't be silly You can't base that on 1 random troll.. I started with 14.4 modems so to me anything before that is like mythical fantasy...

Did run dual ISDN lines though back when phone contracts allowed you unlimited usage.. haha those fools.

Been using a HTC One m7 for almost 2 years now and am still super-happy with it. Upgraded to Android 5.02 back in January through my provider. (Unfortunately Sprint, but I pay a little over $70/mo with unlimited data and an excellent 4G signal everywhere in my city. Never once dropped a call and when traveling across the country last year I was surprised to even get reception in places like Yellowstone. I actually get faster speeds through them than my home ISP.. go figure.

Gonna upgrade to the HTC One M9 this year, as it has the sorely missing SD card slot that the original One m7 lacked. USB OTG works fine for now, but is nowhere as convenient as having SD available, especially with the 128GB+ sizes available now.. and you can't charge your phone while the OTG cable is plugged in, which also is quite limiting. I also like the fact that they are keeping the screen resolution at 1920x1080 and not going 1440 or 4k like other flagship phones. It's completely unnecessary for a ~5 inch screen, and takes up valuable resources and battery that could be better utilized elsewhere in the device.

To be honest the biggest problem I have with the new type of smart phones is that you can't see shit in the sunlight. I want a liquid e-ink phone display!

Boss at the end of EP will repeatedly face roll you even at level 11. I'm pretty amazed at that.

So finally managed to beat the game.. on EASY I just want to say though that this fight is horribly designed, even on easy.

To me, Samsung sold out to Apple's style with the non-removable battery and no MicroSD card slot of the Galaxy S6. Couple this with Samsung's INSANELY slow updates to Android (April 2015 and I'm still using Android 4.4.4 on my Galaxy Note 4!), and my Galaxy Note 4 is probably my last Samsung phone, much as I love the S Pen.

NEXT is NEXUS.

Aren't the carriers responsible for the update pushes? I mean, my Note 4 is using 5.0.1...and I generally get one ever other month, but it's from AT&T.

You can buy unlocked phones, for which Samsung is responsible and does fuck all to update them. A sadly well known problem when it comes to Samsung.. you have to hope Cyanogen supports your device properly and then root and flash the damn thing to get proper security features and latest android.

I'd be more than willing to give TESO an honest, one month beatdown to see if it can keep me interested but it's a pain in the ass that the game is $70 to experience all the newness. Give me a deep weekend sale otherwise I am more interested in spending that money on Elite Dangerous or dumping in to Path of Exile.


$70,-? Seriously, where the fuck do you guys live or buy your games!? You can get ESO for half that price.

Where the heck are you buying?

54.99 € on GMG for ESO Online
79.99 € on GMG for ESO Online complete ultimate imperial edition (aka, the only edition where you get everything)

That's 88$

Even with a sale you'll have a hard time getting that any lower. As there weren't any decent sales that I can find, ever.

With these prices the game prices itself out of the European market too.

Too bad it took them nine months of the first year to figure out it was a F2P game. I wonder how many more players they would have had it been F2P from launch?

It still isn't a free to play game, you need to buy it.

Can someone who's played a Cipher explain this to me?

I start with a Cipher, he's got 15 Focus from the get-go. I level up, select Greater Focus as my talent, which is supposed to give +10 focus, and now I have 20...?

I'm not great at math, but that doesn't really seem right.

Tons of tooltips don't reflect what abilities, spells and even weapons actually *do* been reported but.. well.. tis obsidian for you

There is another patch currently downloading for me. ~ 580MB (the first one was a GB.)

600MB patch to fix a lockpicking bug...?


Just one cds worth of data. And it's Obsidian.


That patch with no info patched ALL level files and the main resource file as well as about 100 unity3d files.. so what the heck was that?

(That's on top of the patch yesterday)

Either I am getting old (doubtful) or this end-boss OR the companions have bad skill design. My mage to reiterate, has accuracy 86 and the enemy dude has defense 140 against magic.

Well, sorry to hear you are having trouble; I'm amazed you are at the end of the game at 46 hours! Also, you are getting older, every second of every day, in fact.

I am at like 60 hours already, just entered act 3. Steamrolling everything though, currently level 11. Have you beaten all of the Endless Paths yet? Because I'd hate to hear the game's end boss is harder than the EP end boss...wow.

Also yes, the NPCs aren't really min-maxed a whole lot, but there is a lot of +stat gear available to help even them out a bit.

I'm kinda looking forward to beating the Final Boss after reading your post, I'm somewhat ashamed to admit.


I give you that But you'd think 20+ years of RPG and DnD (including JRPG's et al) experience would help.

And yeah, I am of course getting older. But I am still young at heart

Ps.: Because I didn't want to spoil the entire game I did not finish Endless paths beyond level 10 and a few side quests. For the 2nd playthrough

I am in the same boat, as much as I was hyped and.. I put 46 hours into this still without managing to beat the final boss.. which is a first for me and kinda has soured my experience because from BG2 I know that every encounter should have a solution, but this encounter has none except pure dumb luck regarding hit rolls on magic.. fucking accuracy on magic 80 vs 140 so you need a +60 roll to GRACE) the fuck.... And I don't like the combat system either.

For some reason even BG2 felt more.. I don't know... solid? When I had a buffed tank then that tank tanked properly, could taunt and do other stuff. All PoEt did so far was make me want a new game in the OLD infinity engine... how sad is that ;(

I can't even express how much this final boss pisses me off. This ain't a big brawl with equal characters. This ain't you vs Irenicus. Against Irenicus you could apply fair tactics, he was a mage, and assuming you had counters for that (which clerics and mages DO) then you have no problem.

This is you vs an OP cheating dude that can cast an aura that does 100 endurance damage PER TURN with 60 points more accuracy than you ever could achieve on a mage and 2 stone statues that can both apply AOE Knock-downs of various kinds (including the kind that burns and does damage) sigh.. I just think this is a super lame boss fight. And by the frigging gods. I can solo BG2, I defeated enemies in Agarest and other games that were far far harder. But never in an RPG, ever, have I met an main-story end boss that with my favorite "choice" first playthrough party I could not defeat.

Either I am getting old (doubtful) or this end-boss OR the companions have bad skill design. My mage to reiterate, has accuracy 86 and the enemy dude has defense 140 against magic. The fuck? This means EVERY SINGLE SPELL I cast on the big mage dude (to prevent him from insta killing me) has a less than 35% hit chance. And remember, a roll that comes up to 140 is still only a grace which halves the spell effect in all respects, including duration.

I feel like to win I'd have to cheat in this fight...

Chalk one up for Steam for not having a belabored patch process like Origin/GOG.

Apparently it will be "a few days" for those services to release this patch. According to the dev in that thread, GOG/Origin do their own QA and patch building, whereas Steam allows the developer to upload and create them directly.

This Friday and the 2 days after are also a very heavily enforced holiday in Poland/Germany and many other countries. So this is why the patch will come on Monday at the soonest.

Like it or not, I think that network only (no console) gaming is going to happen. I think all there will be in the future is cloud based gaming...and taking a small pill that transmits your neural responses wirelessly to .... THE CLOUD! Of course once my brain waves are transmitted to the cloud...the police will probably be showing up very soon afterwards

You have a lot of faith in the police In reality the national agencies will just share it on top level and never ever tell the police anything. NSU terrorism in Germany was covered by state agencies. Police work and inquiries were deliberately sabotaged. And to this day the politicians that knew about this are in power and paid by the people.

If anything more technology allows more ways of resisting a corrupt government. Via dark-nets, stealthed drone transports etc. You can block the Internet, but you can't block a drone on autopilot.

I thought there was some funny stuff this year. Sorry that eraser is so down on the day.

It's because some idiot modder for KSP (Construction Times) made on April 1st a "fake Nag screen" in KSP that broke my entire first start procedures after a 15 minute load time. Fuck that guy and fuck April first ,) *cough*

Maybe next year my experience will be better.. ^^

Ps.: Just one of many examples why April First is bad

Eh, more for demos and the ability to stream your PS5 elsewhere, just like you can with your PS4 and Vita

Doesn't even need to be a box for that, just a controller with some networking and rendering functionality....

I am stuck on the last boss and can't beat him with my first party.. huh. I wonder if I can still change difficulty......

You should be able to, as long as you're not playing iron man mode, or whatever the one death game over setting is.

It requires a "map change" to change.. not quite sure what that means in terms of end-fight and where it changes that exactly.. sigh I don't wanna walk that entire thing again. I have literally dead-ended myself in this save on normal. Level 11/10 is too low for end-fight with companion party and my char +.+ And I seem to have a few very bad skill choices ;/

I thought the whole big thing about Eternity was that there were no "bad builds"?

Heh... there are definitely bad builds to be had. And the end-fight is absurd.
