But you wouldn't get bored with running the same gear in Greater Rifts over and over forever? Right...

The unique currency system is a bit odd, and in my opinion overly complicated. But *shrug* whatever, it really isn't that different from collecting gold.

How easy is it to get into? Easy enough to play without doing any trading/grouping/pure solo or duo with a friend (assuming both are competent, experienced ARPG players)?
The only difficult part is the passive skill tree which can be pretty intimidating. The easy way to deal with that is to spend a hour or so in the forums looking for a build that looks interesting to you. And then use that as a guide. You don't necessarily have to follow it exactly, but it will give you an idea of where you should be headed.

I guess it is both -- you can use it as a mini-map, as seen at the beginning of the video or as an overlay, making it not so mini. I rarely use it in overlay mode...

Have you seen The Iceman? Perfect role for Shannon. Hell, even Chris Evans is really good in it.
I remember seeing the trailer when it was released, but never saw the film. Guess I'll try to keep an eye out for it...

Assuming Microsoft doesn't change their course again and release another reasonable OS (it would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath).

There is not going to be another OS. Win10 is the base line. They will add, modify it but it's going to be win10. They are in essence taking the mac X approach from all the interviews I've read.
Like I said, assuming they don't change course...

And you're logged in? Try clearing the youtube cookie? (Sorry, you probably already checked this stuff)
Yeah.. I can tell which videos I've watched, Youtube has the information and is displaying it in its' very subdued way. But they changed the "look", so I'm guessing they changed something the extension was using, which is now keeping the extension from knowing what has been watched hence preventing the big "Watched" label from being put on the videos.

I'm wondering what you thought of Midnight Special, which, like Take Shelter, also starred Michael Shannon and was written and directed by Jeff Nichols.
*meh* Didn't care for the ending, but overall it was fine. Take Shelter's ending was probably just as ambiguous but didn't bother me as much for some reason... probably better if I don't think about it too much..

Actually, the bigger one will come when they stop supporting Windows 7.
If only I had said that...

*grumble* Youtube seems to have broken my extension for marking videos as "Watched"... a Google search didn't find anything recent, but apparently this has consistently been an issue over the years... hopefully the extension will get patched...

Take Shelter with him and Chastain was really well done.
I agree, "Take Shelter" was far better than I expected it to be.

Bad timing for me. I'll need to get back up to speed on PoE and one of my sisters is about to visit, so I'll be busy spending time with her until nearly the release date. Still, looking forward to it.

That said, the trailer itself didn't seem that great...

I'd say a congressman asking a question of a scientist is an improvement over the current trend of politicians circumventing or ignoring scientists altogether.
That's giving this guy WAY TOO much credit. Any reasonably educated person would not have asked this question. It wouldn't be any more ridiculous if he had asked if they'd found a Stargate in Egypt.
