Just a french press or an Aeropress? All I've ever used is a french press. Just remember, your optimal brewing time is about 5 minutes. So I always pour my cup that I'm drinking and pour the rest into a thermos style cup to keep hot and from getting anymore bitter.


Just a basic french press. I haven't dabbled around with how hot the water should get as I usually just bring it to a boil then pour it in to the press, give it a stir and leave it for five minutes before plunging and pouring. I ran out of the good stuff so now I'm on my "back of the cupboard" Maxwell House reserve which, quite frankly, leaves a little to be desired with taste whether it's fresh or a couple hours old.

I'll keep a thermos handy though when I restock on some Kicking Horse.

I got a coffee press over the holidays and have been going non-stop with it. I hate to sound like a hipster but it definitely tastes different than just running the coffee through a k-cup single cradle with my own brew.

I never even knew you could mod it so that was something never on my mind while playing.

Will give another playthrough.

Not on Steam but BF1 was on sale for 40% off. I already got my cherry popped with one of the many prevalent bugs when I got a DX error message saying something about my graphics card being removed from my system or some weird shit.

Features at this point it seems.

Triggers me almost as much as folks who say their game "lags" when the FPS drops and news outlets affixing "gate" to any every sort of scandal.

I'm ready to chomp down on Battlefield 1 but it's a rough time trying to find a retailer who isn't asking $65+ even when on sale.

Anyone know if Origin uses regional pricing? Because it's 40% off which brings it down to $48 from the $80 standard price which matches the Canadian price of new AAA titles.

Borderlands feels more like a fluke than anything and they lost the writer who really made it that much more amazing.

Playing the tiniest violin for Randy Shitford right now.

Same thing happened with Spock on Vulcan in STO. They built an in-game statue so I wouldn't expect anything less in this case as well.

Debbie Reynolds died earlier today too. That's gotta be one devastated family.

Slightly click-baity. They basically turned it in to a massively overclocked Pentium G.

I don't find Skaven to be very interesting or engaging enemies which is why I've been a little hesitant to buy it even when on sale. I might pull that trigger though if someone can tell me if the game can be played "well enough" in single player since I am sure the online community has a very rigid "farm mobs, stand here or gtfo" mentality at this point.

I really want to know what's in the season pass. It can't be typical RE bullshit like costumes since it's first person and I can't see it being alternate modes since you get a new mode right out of the gate if you pre-order.

Maybe there's a spooky shed?

I'm even more curious to see how this game ties in with the previous entries since it's not a reboot and they're not throwing away the pre-established story. Of all the shit that's been going down since the first title, here we find ourselves in some backassward hick's house who are huge fans of the Sawyer family.

Just played it and I really liked it! Cranked it up to max and it ran flawless.

Makes me even MORE curious and interested in how this'll tie in to the series. Even better is that it feels as though it connects better with the first title of the first trilogy than anything from the second trilogy. I'd shit my pants in excitement and dread if this somehow came back to Lisa Trevor.

As far as popularity is concerned, Space Hulk has already fallen off the deep end since release and I don't feel too bad about it since most bugs reported during the beta are still in the retail version.

This dev release day stream is especially awkward and dude with the beard looks like he's ready to break down in tears since he probably knew the game was nowhere near ready.

After finding out that nearly all bugs were present in the retail version of the game, I just can't be bothered to take a chance with it. Maybe a couple months down the road when it's half price and patched but definitely not in the current state. It has already hemorrhaged nearly 66% of the player base in less than a week according to Steam stats too so we're looking at one glorious flop barring any extraordinary post-release patching from Streum On Studio.

What a god damn shame for such an otherwise amazing looking game with tons of potential.
