It's certainly boring as shit 99% of the time but Guild Wars 2 definitely made some effort in minimizing the grind to cap by providing multiple avenues in order to do so.

You could actually level to max in GW2 just via crafting. I did it with several alts and it was easy and fun. GW2 was probably the most fun I had leveling in an MMORPG, but it had almost no endgame.

FFXIV is also pretty good - but I had played so many MMORPGs by the time I started it that I was a bit burned out.

Thanks for this. I installed Win10 recently and did not realize I had an option for 15GB free storage.

I got this game free with a coupon when I replaced my video card. Is it any good? I have AC: Black Flag but haven't played it much. Is this one better, or should I stick with Black Flag?

This looks pretty interesting - is it good? I have a microITX i7-6700k system with a GTX970, and am going to need to keep an eye on temperature and performance. Right now I'm using HWMonitor - is this the same or better?

Thanks for any advice.

Buy Carharrt boots, they will last forever and they backup their products.

Or Sorel boots, which I believe are the Minnesota official boot.

I have a pair of Sorel waterproof hiking/winter boots and can confirm that they never quit and look great. Which is good, since Mordor is a bit muddy and it rains all the time.

I have this game as a freebie after buying a video card, and it looks great. But I do wish it had offline bots so I could get used to the maps before going online.

Anyone tried using a Steam Link and/or Steam Controller? I just used them to hook up my gaming rig to the TV and they seem to work great, even via wireless network. Gonna try playing Pillars of Eternity on the TV and will report back.

I'm finally getting to play The Witcher 3 on my new gaming rig. Oh. My. God. I'm hugely impressed so far.

Great graphice, great story, visceral combat, great atmosphere, deep backstory, lots of interesting characters. Just fantastic.

I have used high-end laptops for years (Dell Precision mobile workstations), mainly for work but also for gaming. I logged hours playing Skyrim on one of them, and the graphics were pretty good. But that was when I did a lot more traveling than I do now.

The downsides to those machines can be pretty significant - I had at least two burn out due to heat problems, and they're expensive (around $1800) although mine came from work. You also can't upgrade them. And the 17 inch ones are pretty heavy - it's easier to use a 15 inch machine and hook it up to a 24 inch monitor when at home.

Overall, these days I prefer a lighter laptop, and a regular gaming rig. Right now I'm looking to hook up the gaming rig to the TV, maybe via Steam link. Gaming on a 48 inch TV/monitor, on the couch - now that sounds much more appealing than crouching over a laptop scrren.

Lemmy's service, starting "soon"...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSAXVdIj6jY


Yup, I spent part of the evening watching it, with a glass of *ahem* potato juice for the occasional toast to his memory.

What did you think of it, nin? I thought Scott Ian and Lars Ulrich were both great - I knew Lars was a huge Motorhead fan but not that he followed them around on tour back in the day.

Overall, kind of a sweet service - glad I saw it.

Happy birthday Frans.

Nice that Lemmy's funeral will be broadcast live - I'll probably tune in with a frosty one.

Oh, I just finished building my new rig - i5 4950 with a GTX 970, 16GB RAM and a 480GB SSD. I really like it. Witcher 3 here I come, I hope.

Many of the beta testers complain of head aches, blindness, PTSD symptoms, shrinkage, desire to punch a pony in the face, Carmackian speech issues, and suicidal thoughts at being ripped off by once game creators that sold their souls to jerk off for the past 5 years instead of making great games we could be playing right now.

This made me LOL. Well, except for the bit about punching ponies. Poor little fluffy ponies. You bad man.

A bit of a change of topic, but I figured I'd warn folks off of a product that I recently bought and expected to really like:

http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/SYBER_VAPOR_K

It's a Cyberpower Steam machine with i7 and a GTX970 - looks great and I ordered one for my kids and me, for gaming on the TV. Only thing is, the cooling on this thing is woeful and the PSU is only 450W, Mine blew up about an hour after I turned it on, and has now been RMA'd.

I may just harvest the replacement for parts, or exchange or return it. Apparently other buyers are having similar issues.

Nice to see the Jets snatch defeat from the jaws of victory yet again. I followed them all season and thought they were pretty gutsy, but they just had to pull off their old tricks on that final day...

Sad about Lemmy. Saw him live one time back in 1982 at The Palace in Hollywood, CA, with Krokus.

I sent links to that in as well this morning. One of my favorite bands - I have 19 of their albums (!). I started listening to them in 1985 and have never stopped. Only saw them once, and regret not going to their recent show at Jones Beach which apparently was great.

RIP Lemmy. Rock god, and musical choice of evil overlords everywhere.

The Nexus Mods breach appears to be real. I know a couple of people who use Nexus Mods, whose email addresses were locked by their institution's IT department over the weekend as a precaution.
