Hmm, while browsing the All-Seeing Eye network here at Barad-Dur, I noticed what seems like a good deal online.

Surface Pro 3 deal

And shipping to Mordor is free, via Hobbit Special Delivery.

So the deal seems to include both entertainment, and dinner...

Any comments welcome - would this thing run Divinity: Original Sin? And maybe Pillars of Eternity? Thanks for advice.

I would stay faaaaaar the fuck away from Surfaces. I support them at work and they are non-stop problems. Microsoft is STILL trying to fix the battery life issues on the Surface 3 (and have been for well over a year now.)


that's surprising. i have a surface 3 that i bought for black friday last year. its battery life is one of its pluses i feel. maybe i just got lucky but i've gone through a bunch of cheap notebooks and the surface was the first one that really did everything i wanted.

i mean, what were people expecting from a procgen game? you can't build compelling story content for 18 billion worlds. and if you say, well, build it for just a few worlds, then it becomes no different to a game like mass effect. all the story is concentrated in a few areas and everything else gets ignored because everyone knows there's nothing interesting out there.

sure there were a few misleading statements, but even if they were all true, it would still be a soulless piece of shit game. either way, it's exactly the game i thought it was going to be and i can't fathom how people ever expected otherwise.

it's a video of a dude killing spiders where his children play. perfectly legit imo. i feel the same about spiders as blue (although i've never had a pet). i'm not afraid of them, will catch and release most of the time. but if i had kids and saw a nest of black widows? awwww shit, John Goodman from arachnophobia comes out for bloooood. i mean spider goooooooo.

JD where the fuck do you live? the amazon? i didn't think centipedes got a food long anywhere except in the deepest jurassic park fucking jungle.

it's amazing how much the needle hurts considering it's designed to penetrate as smoothly as possible. i swear stepping on glass/getting a paper cut doesn't hurt as much.

Saw "Arrival" yesterday -- I thought it was excellent. YMMV.

I've seen some very positive reviews, but others saying it's only "fair". It's definitely on my list, but I might wait on netflix...


i would agree it's fair. for anyone with love of real science fiction, it's not particularly impressive.

also, westworld: called it!

westworld: so the whole plot is going to rely on this two stooges moment down in maintenance. i hope it's just a side story... cuz that was just a horridly written moment. but maeve achieving skynet sure doesn't feel sidestoryesque.

Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead)

Here in Mordor, every day is Day of the Undead, and we like to keep it that way.

ya know, as far as i know (and i know a lot about middle earth), neither you nor your boss morgoth ever dabbled in necromancy, even though you were called the necromancer in The Hobbit. all you ever did was raise monsters, but never the undead. ironically the only mention of the undead that i can remember were when aragorn raised them to fight for him, and when luthien and beren took the shape of vampires to sneak into angband to steal one of the silmarils.

westworld: this show is almost too rich. so many layers, each tastier than the last, and the best part is seeing how they're revealed. i love that Ford isn't the kindly tinkerer i intially thought; i love that logan isn't just a douchebag - he might be truly evil, delighting in the corruption of his friend. frankly the least interesting characters are the good guys, but that might say more about me than the show O.o

i love dolores' descent into madness 1) because it's fascinating for its own sake 2) the nasty irony that her madness might be her salvation. WHAT IS THE MAZE??!

Westworld musings:

bernard is probably a robot. the whole episode was one long meditation on the nature of consciousness, memory and personality, culminating in his discussion with dr. ford, which immediately segues into his call with his wife about his own past, his memories, his personality anchors. the way the whole thing is arranged is screaming, 'this is how our robots are made, here is an example one of one.'

also, those dudes that fucked up teddy at the end, they were probably guests since he tried to shoot them and they wouldn't die. i wonder if that was part of ford's new story.

I'm still having trouble with the Westworld after two episodes. I don't care for any of the characters because it's basically just GTA5 with androids instead of being only virtual.

So even though they play evil music when Ed Harris does his thing, it's no different than me running over the NPCs in GTA5.

It's not like they are actual conscious beings like Data from Star Trek.


Or have I completely missed something?


yeah, pretty much the entire transhumanist subtext. gta had about as much philosophy as a kick to the balls. westworld is (hopefully and so far) something far, far greater.

Westworld episode 2 thoughts:

It really is feeling like a game, in a good way. Especially the end, where a team pitches a new area/expansion, complete with logo. First thought was "This is just like WOW!"

So it looks like, after Delores passes it to Maeve, that it's a code word/phrase that passes the virus? So the obvious question is who put that in there?

What exactly is Dr Ford building???? Looks like a church?

Nice to see Cullen as more than a two dimensional character (IE she actually shows affection to someone).




i love the production values, but they could still fuck it up with poor writing. all the pretty visuals don't mean a damn thing if they leave jj abrams level plot holes in it. the fact that abrams is involved does not give me hope. still, it hasn't let me down. yet.

The Bible's view and the belief of millions are that humans have the capacity to live much longer than 115 years. The Bible states we have the capacity to live forever and were designed to do just that. It even says in Ecclesiastes 3:11 that God "has even put eternity in their heart," which explains why so many people believe they can live forever today. Unfortunately, inherited Adamic sin mars our ability to do so. (Romans 5:12) The good news is this miserable condition will soon be expunged. (Romans 6:23; Revelation 21:4) After that, age, cellular degradation, and a multitude of other infirmities will no longer have a stranglehold on our lives. We will, in effect, have perpetual lifespans.

I know many of you don't hold these views. I would kindly ask that you be tolerant of a point of view you don't have.

Humans will live hundreds of years in the future. There are already examples of longevity in nature: trees that live 1000s of years, animals that live 100s of years. We already understand many of the mechanisms to make this occur, even if we yet don't have the technology to implement it. It raises all kinds of moral questions, such as the freedom to reproduce, and how to manage essentially immortal populations. Some movies have tried to address this, like In Time.

And if science doesn't work, there's always ritual hobbit sacrifice and unspeakable dark magic. Refreshing and wholesome!

i prefer the lawful good route, and just have sex with an elf princess XD

Oh it is on HBO. My cable tried to entice me for a free month, far TOO much money for a few good shows they have.

I am not impressed with any of their shows including Game of Thrones.

yeah i would gladly pay for hbo if it was like $10 a month, but $20 is way excessive for one channel. imagine if you had to pay $20 for every channel. yeeesh.

I seriously doubt she even remotely understands what that really means. Everytime we hear this bullshit from her it really means 'I want more than my 15 minutes! Give me more money for doing nothing!'


Even though I respect what she (poorly) is trying to do, it's hard to get past this aspect of things. She loves attention. Still, she didn't deserve the hate she got.

i think you're mistaking what she's trying to do. she isn't trying to bring any awareness to feminism in gaming - she's just trying to make money by selling a thin veneer of social outrage. she's not and never has been a gamer and there's a video where she admits it. she doesn't know the first thing about real gaming.

to be clear, i don't believe she gives two fucks about feminist roles in gaming, she's just conning a bunch of naive millennials into giving her money by any means necessary.
