Nothing for me this week.

Minecraft
GTAV (still haven't bought it. I procrastinate shopping)

I'm just hoping they will get a JJX wiki up soon.

too bad I can't dye part of the beard.

I don't often take self portraits, but when I do, I take them wearing a suit.

I see what you did there. Nicely done. ninja

You've got the order down right. As far as I can tell, bronze is used only to make nails. I haven't seen tool/armor recipes for it.  As for what is better - the only way I know to check is in the inventory screen. You can pull a drop-down menu from above the character picture and it shows damage resistance numbers that change as you swap out armor. I don't know about set bonuses. I only have two pieces of one set (library).

Tip: If you are resource poor - you might want to kit your character out for an adventure and then exit the world and start a new one. Character inventory transfers between games/worlds. They have changed the resource gen in the latest patch and there is a lot more ore/coal/crates near the surface in the first planet.

Yeah, I'm leaning toward that route.

If I do, though, I'm interested in a couple crafting spoilers. smile

Is there metal armor in the game?  My leather armor just doesn't seem to be cutting it anymore.  Likewise, any way to increase my max health?

Is there a way to create animal pens and start breeding them close to home?

Is there a bigger storage chest than the initial one?  My home storage solutions are getting a little insane.

My advice is to tree farm for a bit. You will get tons of recipe drops. These will include recipes for armor, chests, and for animal pens.

I never made leather armor - I went straight to metal. So I guess there is some randomization to recipe drops. That said, I am no longer getting drops, so I imagine my recipe book is mostly full. Many of the recipes call for stuff that must only be available on other worlds. I have built up a good collection of seeds and saplings, I have ~ two dozen varieties and have not farmed anything other than wood. Nor have I cooked anything beyond roasting meat in a furnace.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I have progressed to opening two other worlds so far. Don't even try the 2nd world until you have a full set of gold armor and a gold weapon. I found my first mithril in the 2nd world last night. I won't even go to the 3rd world, beyond just popping through the portal. I need better gear.

Let me know if you want to swap tips and tricks.

GTA V - probably

Wow - I really don't know. Maybe I'll feel better when I get out of work. Right now I don't feel like looking at a screen this weekend.
10  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] X-Rebirth on: September 13, 2013, 07:38:49 PM
For me, 2.5 months out is too far away. I'll add it to my wishlist and hope for a sale email.

I've put it on my Amazon saved shopping cart. I'm holding off until I decide if I'm buying the new Kindle. I don't have one yet, but have been thinking about it. I will either get it then, or maybe order a signed one from you when you get them in. Please keep us posted.
12  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie]Harry Potter Spin-Off Movie incoming on: September 13, 2013, 01:04:39 PM
I think it will be great fun and am looking forward to it. I liked the lighter HP movies that had the emphasis on the odd and magical wizarding world. IMHO the movies needed more of the Diagon Alley stuff.  I hope they can take that direction without making it a kids movie. This will, no doubt, be an effort that is heavily integrated with merchandizing. I will be sadly disappointed if they go full-on Jar-Jar! But who knows..

It was a MC season. I'm looking forward to the Jr. version that starts pretty soon. I wonder if they will bring their sons back as guest judges!

My humor can be really dry sometimes; I was just kidding around by posting that after Cylus thanked us for the rec.

I wondered if it was a bit of dry humor.

Bought JJX. Thanks for the recommendation.

Bad idea; terrible game.

What causes you to change your opinion? I got a couple of hours in last night and am just starting. Does it go bad at some point?

I'm definitely in on this... eventually. I suppose my buy date will be determined by my gaming backlog and how soon this sounds tempting. If it goes long enough, I will probably just hold out for a PC or next-gen console version. But its definitely one I will play.
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 9/6/13 on: September 06, 2013, 01:49:11 PM
Minecraft - FTB/DireWolf20 pack
The Witcher (Original)
Saint's Row 4

I plan to hang out in both. Not that I'm a high-volume poster. But I'll be around..
22  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: New monitor choices: 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 on: August 30, 2013, 03:26:38 PM
The 24" should be no problem when running 1920x1080. I do that with mine sometimes and I just get narrow black bars top and bottom. I highly recommend the 1920x1200 for screen space. I only run it lower when I am cloning my display with an HD TV so I can play on the bigger screen in my man cave.

Note: My 24" Dell is about 1 year old and may be a slightly different model than yours. Its definitely an Ultrasharp. I'd post the model number if I were sitting in front of it instead of at work. FWIW - the HP ZR2440w on my work PC is great!
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Prison Architect [PC/Steam] on: August 30, 2013, 02:29:14 PM
I've been keeping my eye on this one. Its Early Access and I have a good backlog, so I haven't bitten yet.  Its very tempting though..

I am really trying to keep myself from buying this. 2 months later I will have a brand new console that it won't play on. I will only be able to play it when the kids are asleep. Eventually it will come to PC. Yes, I'm so lazy that going up the media room and waiting for the projector to warmup to play is a negative.

Don't forget that we're ending a summer dry spell with regular TV. You will soon be able to watch new episodes of your favorites in lieu of the typical summer tidal wave of bad reality TV. This may not affect your entertainment choices, but if your wife watches TV in your media room..
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3/PC]Saints Row 4 on: August 29, 2013, 03:21:30 PM
Agreed. That's why I was thinking of Witcher II to challenge the new GPU. I have tried it in the past and been frustrated with performance.  I was only planning to dabble in the original to wet my feet and remind myself of its charms. I never did finish it before, got maybe 80% through. Now that I've restarted, I may play it to completion. SR4 will have to wait.
27  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: OO off line for a short time on: August 28, 2013, 08:36:29 PM
I just got in too. I will have to visit regularly, even when OO comes back.
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3/PC]Saints Row 4 on: August 28, 2013, 08:30:12 PM
I got this game to christen my new 780GTX and I haven't even played it yet. For some stupid reason (*), I decided to give The Witcher another shot and have got sucked into it.  So now I'm putting of SR4 so I can play a much older title on my shiny new card.

*I have Witcher II installed so I can get the Steam Trading Cards, and decided to maybe play that. Then, I recalled that you could import a Witcher I game file and then, well, you know...
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Wasteland 2 on: August 28, 2013, 08:24:52 PM
I backed this KS and can't wait for it to actually come out. I'll have to check out that video when I get home. (Work monitors YouTUbe use pretty closely.)
30  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: dbt's condition on: August 28, 2013, 08:21:06 PM
Sorry to read about that. Yeah, getting older is tough. At least I don't have parts falling off (yet).

Get well soon. (Well, as normal as you can anyway)
