I played it about a year ago, and really enjoyed it. I put in 40 hours and got about halfway "finished." It ran fine on my 9 year old laptop.

Not sure I want to try again though. 40 hours is a lot of time...

Hah! Screw all you guys! I just bought a La-z-boy - today! Really should have done that 20 years ago. Get it in 6 weeks. So just in time to hunker in by the fireplace and watch football and Xmas movies!

Gibson Recliner - Canyon color.

Didn't go for power but I did upgrade to memory foam and a swivel base on it - so I can spin around like Dr. Evil. Got 5% off on a sctach and save and the guy actually bumped it up to 10 points. So everything said it done I got it for $1169. I'm gonna' sit and power nap the shit out this thing!

Dunno cause it looks like I just finalized the sale of my new ride - fucking finally - as well. So, I just talked to the broshack and it looks like we'll be doing our road trip to the US first weekend of November. Probably heading down to Cleveland first off and catch the Browns v. Chiefs at the Dog Pound. Gonna' see what other games are going on. He'd like to head up to Milwaukee to see the baseball game - no idea about what's going on in baseball. And if that's the case we'll either go to Green Bay or Chi-town for football. Indianapolis is a possibility too. Never been there. Considered the Steelers but we've both been through Pittsburgh a few times.

Just be sure to bring a burner phone for the border.

Also, if they legalized cannabis in my country, not sure I'd leave for a few years. Beatnik

Advertisers/marketers live in their own little world. A world where they think people actually appreciate what they do.

I dunno, I appreciate that Blue has a site he updates twice daily and makes a living off of without me paying a dime for it.

Oh Beamer, you silly. Don't you know that the magical blog fairy leaves money under Blue's pillow every night? The ad revenue is just gravy!

Heh, that UpTown Spot is pretty entertaining.

Robots are getting fairly naturalistic.

*jdreyer says, right before version 2.0 of that robot jumps through his window and begins turbo murdering him*

Seriously though, I wonder when Boston Dynamics gets tasked to build their first combat robot, if they haven't already.

There are a couple of them already.

My card is a few generations old at this point. What's the best way to spend $500? AMD? Current gen Nvidia? Last gen Nvidia?

2070 is around that price I believe, but you could find a used 1080ti for around that price, and I would jump on that before the 2070.

I'm also a couple generations back, still rocking the 980ti, but honestly I dont feel any reason to upgrade yet.

RTX is in it's first iteration, expensive as hell, and AMD is not really competing. Not the best time to buy a GPU, unless youre looking for a good last generation nvidia gpu used, which are in abundance because of the new gen cards coming out. With the new cards, you're paying a premium because of the new rtx technology that is of very limited usefulness to gamers for the foreseeable future, and because of this price positioning, even used cards are going for higher than they should.

Not the best time for an upgrade, and I'd say "wait until we see what AMD comes out with next", but that is a total crapshoot also.

I think the best bet is to wait until the next generation rtx cards or even the gen after that, when the premium (hopefully) will not be as high for this new technology, and perhaps even a bit of competition from AMD will be present.

Maybe not 4K, but something to handle a VR set up with smooth framerates.

I have to say, while have been considering on and off for a while now about going back to ED -- this video did nothing to increase my desire to start playing the game again.

What, mining asteroids not exciting enough for ya?

What this game really needs is an engine that understands speech so I can dock verbally.

There is a software system compatible with ED that does that. You can buy voice packs of different actors - Bill Shatner, Tom Baker, et al. - that act as the ship's AI.

Voice Attack

Thanks Cutter.

I was hoping for something built-in and interactive that would improve immersion:

"Marcellus station, this is Viper 257 requesting permission to dock."

"Permission granted, please proceed to dock 43."

It works on voice triggers so you could set your trigger to

"This is Viper 256 requesting permission to dock"

or

"Requesting permission to dock"

and then it automatically sends the key functions to initiate docking with a station.

Yeah, that's pretty cool. Gets me part way there.
