I really loved TL2. Did you try the Synergies mod?

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=136232408


Thanks, that looks really good. Actually, one thing I would love now that I've figured out secondary skills, is a way to respec my character. Kind of weird they don't allow it in the vanilla game.

I agree -- sure did break from the perception that they save all the action and big twists for the last two episodes of the season.

Of course if rumors about the last two seasons being shortened are correct, then they only have like 20-24 more episodes to wrap everything up, so we may maintain a greater sense of urgency going forward.

Which I'm fine with. My theory is season 5 was basically everyone at their low point, and from 6 to the end, you basically have That Guy From Last Night rallying all the folks we loved from season 1 back together and saving the day.


That would be good. I kind of gave up watching halfway through Season 3 with all those deaths.

I spent the weekend playing Torchlight 2 coop with my daughters. Embarrassed to admit we got a quarter of the way through the game without realizing there are secondary skills. Whoops!

OK, that LEGO train is officially awesome. Especially when it goes past the family cat,

I spent a couple of hours last night and a couple more today playing Torchlight 2 co-op with my teenage daughters, Very very fun. They are much better at the game than I am, and are definitely dark lords (ladies?) in training.

News Comments > Blizzard on Vanilla WoW Shutdown
2. Re: Blizzard on Vanilla WoW Shutdown Apr 26, 2016, 11:23 sauron
 
A bit torn here..I don't doubt it would take some work, and it would be questionable how many people would actually pay monthly for it.

But how much work could it really be, if a group outside blizzard did it? (I don't mean that as an insult to the guys that worked on it, but more calling into question blizzs claims it would just be too much work for them to do.)

I'm guessing the "pristine realm" option isn't what the vanilla folks would want? It doesn't sound like it...

I think it's more about lack of control. I mean, who's to say the vanilla server wouldn't allow hacking or rampant gold farming? A few server transfers later, things could get very messy.

Apparently the Ramones exhibit at the Queens Museum is a big hit:

Hey-ho! Let's go!

This weekend I think me and the orcs will head down there and take a look. Show those pinheads how to Blitzkrieg Bop.

Happy Earth day, everyone.

After killing off a band of foolhardy adventurers, don't forget to recycle their armor and weapons.

And remember if you come across any magical rings that were made in Mt Doom, throw them back. Remember recycling starts with you

We also recycle biodegradable items. Ecologic responsibility begins with a freshly-squeezed glass of hobbit juice.

That NZXT Manta is pretty fly. I've been meaning to reseat a mini-ITX system and am looking at a Thermaltake V1 case but this one looks nice as well.

http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00002373

I'm more or less comfortable working in mini-ITX format, but the cabling and cooling are kind of a pain. The V1 has so many options for that - might just give it the edge?

I'm loving the weather, but hating the pollen levels, even through the pollen filters on my spiky Sauron(TM) armor.

Not sure whether to take more allegra, or just dull the discomfort after work with a gin and tonic.

A shame it's not going down well. I played the hell (pun intended) out of Doom 1 and 2, Quake 1-3, and UT99, UT2004 and even UT3. But I'm just not jonesing for this one.

If it had rocket jumping and the old Doom/Quake/Rocket Arena madness, then heck yes, but it's just not grabbing me.

Empyrion looks kinda cool, got to say. I might take a look in the morning, but tonight me and the orcs are on a Guy Ritchie movie bender. RocknRolla first, followed by Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and then Snatch. London fun.

I liked 9, not as much as '6' or 7, but I liked the game (and it had some great music). They did a great job with the models, but that just makes it clash with the backgrounds that much more. Reminds me very much of the FF Type Zero remake, tons of work done on some models jarring with the rest.

I guess if you never got to play 9 then I would still say go for it, but for anyone who has already played the game? Eh, not seeing it...

I'll probably get it on Android although that version is kind of huge for a tablet or phone. But I'd love to play it on no-encounter mode. I loved IX but the random encounters in FF games get on my nerves after a while. Will be so nice to turn them off.

Shelob and I tried playing through Bioshock 1 and had to stop because it was too scary. True story.

Kind of embarrassing, what with me being the Lord of Mordor and all.

OK, I'm a total pansy when it comes to horror games and made it through that one...

I think it was that scene with the fluffy kittens that did it. Those things are terrifying.

Face your fears guys. If video games aren't the easiest and safest way of doing that, I don't know what is.

Eh, OK. I'll give Bioshock 1 another try. But I'm definitely not playing Fluffy Kitten Simulator - that one is just too spine-chilling.

I'd be curious to see a Zork VR mod.

You made me think of having the System Shock 2 remake in VR. Talk about a "Killer app" literally!

disclaimer at the end of the commercial would take 15min.

There are a lot of possible great redo's. I'd love something like DDO or GW2 VR mode.

Skyrim in VR would be quite the experience.

Seems there are a bunch of guides out there for just that:

I don't really mind Windows 10. It's been okay for me so far.

But I will not be buying games in the Win10 app store. Was burnt by GFWL so no more buying into MS.

Too bad really. Was wanting to play this game.

Yes, this is exactly how I feel too. Win 10 isn't awful, but I definitely won't be buying anything in the Win 10 store.

Microsoft basically has a license to print money. Why do they always make such stupid decisions when it comes to entertainment?
