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?

Thanks for the link to the Ramones exhibit. I'm in Jackson Heights, Queens, just nearby, and am definitely going.

Slightly OT, but has anyone else played the Skyrim mod, Falskaar? Just started it, and omg it's really good so far.

I just looked at the comments on Metacritic. Wow, it really is that bad.

Here's the PC version on MetaCritic.

Yeah, I was looking at the User Reviews on that page. It's getting eviscerated over and over again.

Never mind Star Wars lego, nin, you should be opening your wallet for these!:

Set #1

Set #2

I had to pose for hours for the second one, it was torture!

That second ones awesome, but just a tad too big for me, space wise.

So far I have a Falcon, the Ghost/Phantom, an AT-AT, Rey's speeder, and a speeder bike set. (I'm sure Blue is looking at his amazon list and wondering WTF is going on.)

I've been hanging out at https://www.reddit.com/r/lego/ the last few weeks, and the community there is really amazing. Not only do folks share their custom designs, but almost everyone that does includes a parts list and assembly instructions. All sorts of stuff I'd never guess, with instructions! Really cool community!

I know a lot of folks thought Rey was "Mary Sue" (had never even heard of this term before this movie), but I didn't even notice it, or particularly care if she really is a bad ass. You know, force and all.

I'd not heard of that phrase until the movie, either. I thought she was fantastic, and the way she and Finn got along was so much fun to watch.


My kids used to have the

Y-wing + TIE fighter set

It was pretty awesome - I can definitely see the appeal. I bet the Falcon set is really cool.

I have not been this excited for Star Wars since I was a kid. I just got Force Awakens on bluray and it was still awesome the second time around, and I actually want to watch it again. Now Rogue One? Awesome!

I think you mean Blu-Rey!

I'm going to warn you all now: Do not start down the road of collecting Star Wars lego sets. My wallet has paid the price... (also, that means more for me).
