There's a good article about the Knicks and the lottery over at Five Thirty-Eight. Pretty entertaining, actually.

They can't even win at the thing most bad teams are good at.

I'm having a great time with MorrOblivion, Morrowind modded to work in the Oblivion engine. You can travel between the two, using the same character, by ship. You can even ride and swim there if you have the correct mods installed. One of the things I hated more than the level scaling in Oblivion was the leveling system, still used from Morrowind. MorrOblivion is perfectly compatible with Oblivion XP, so now you can get XP for killing and quests. Lighter

Yes, I was just looking at Skywind, from the same team (Morrowind in the Skyrim engine). It looks great but isn't finished yet, although they must be getting close. Take a look!

My favorite ES game

Same here. I loved the expansion for Skyrim which is set on Solstheim, it really made me nostalgic for Morrowind.

Setting, scripted sequences but also the marine AI is what really did it for me with HL1. It pulled me into the game like nothing else to feel like I was having a real, movie-like gun fight happening.

Same here - I still remember the scene where you first meet the marines. I must have replayed it about fifty times just to see the different AI behaviors.

Although Unreal was also fantastic, especially the AI of the bots in multiplayer. I spent months playing that part of the game.

Thanks for all the congrats on our martial endurance!

Heh heh, I think you probably meant 'marital', Blue.

Although all is fair in love and war, of course.

Woo hoo, Beamdog sent me a Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition KEY for asking a question in the interview Blue covered earlier this week! W00t

Evening Interviews

The reviews of the EE are really good. Things they added like Tabbing to show interactable items, and auto-looting, will really help the gameplay.

I bought the original on CD when it was released, and also have the GOG version, which have it installed with all the mods, but I might have to get this version as well.

You know you swung and missed when even Penny Arcade pans your game. I mean, if they buy into an IP, you have to turn out sacks of liquid crap to turn them off.

https://www.penny-arcade.com/news/post/2017/04/10/comprehensive

Yeah, I read that PA post as well. Those guys are really nice, and they rarely bash games, especially ones from their favorite IPs (which include ME). But they really do not like ME:A at all.

If only the Dolans would just sell everything. #longsufferingknicksfan

Yes, especially the Knicks. Last Knicks season I actually enjoyed was in 1998. That's 20 years of pain.

Yes, but as we learned yesterday, telling Dolan to sell the team, outside of MSG, is a bad thing. He'll call you an asshole to the media for insulting him in his place of business. Nevermind that you spent $200 for the privilege of attending that place.

He'll also say it's unfair, that you can yell at politicians because they're elected but not him because he's not. That'll make us scratch our heads, though, because that means politicians have some accountability, and he just happened to be born with absolutely no skills but a very, very rich father. Clearly, that means judging him for doing a bad job isn't fair and we should all quietly give him our money

Haha, well said.

Honestly, people think I'm wicked, cruel and heartless, but I've got nothing on Dolan.

If you have a realtor lined up try asking them for a contractor recommendation. Most have a short list of contractors they work with for repairs like this.

Seconded. The realtor I used to sell my last place also does gut renovations on old houses and is a licensed contractor himself. He was a mine of information on what to do and who to use for the job.

I already have PS:T installed and modded, and am about a third of the way through a replay, but the new features of the EE look really good. Not sure whether to get the PC version of the EE, or the Android version when it comes out.

Probably my all-time favorite RPG on the PC.

There's also a trailer - looks pretty neat. Day 1 purchase for me, for sure.

I have PS:T installed on this computer right here, and also on my Surface Pro 3. Once it's modded, you can run it at any resolution you want, and increase the size of the text/UI. There's a guide to modding it here:

https://www.gog.com/news/mod_spotlight_planescape_torment_mods_guide

Anyhow, I just wanted to mention that the font on the 'Plan Escape' countdown timer is the one used in the original game. So I guess an EE is in the works. Yay!

Planet Earth II is “need a new TV” propaganda—if you get the right version.

I haven't seen the 4k version of Planet Earth II, but I've watched a few episodes in 1080HD. It's the best wildlife show I've ever seen, bar none, and I've made a point of watching a lot of them over the years. Very recommended. It is absolutely stunning.

Anyone playing this game that can provide some opinions on how it is these days?

I played this for a while when it came out, and it was really good. Apparently these days it's even better - the expansion content has been really well reviewed.

The graphics are good, gameplay is fun, grouping is kinda optional but also fun, and the community (at least when I played) was good natured and light hearted.

I have played several MMORPGs and this was one I really enjoyed. Hope this helps!
