Ha!  Those are pretty cool.   I think the Dash could be ultra convenient, though not always the best price.   The balance struggle is real. 

I think it would be cool for something like soft drinks (which Amazon does sell and at least one brand is included so far it appears), but even with Subscribe and Save, Amazon is usually much more expensive on those items. Nothing they are showing now do I order enough of to need a button just to order it. Neat idea though.

Fair enough. There hasn't been any in act I (of course I am only 10 hours in). Also seen complaints about a lack of it, guess those were from people early on as well.

Anyway, I am not wrong, I said "in my experience", which is 100% correct. Tongue

In my experience, there is no banter. You can talk to them by clicking on their portrait to find out more about them, but I haven't seen them talk to each other like the old games.

Even Raedics, as I understand it, you just have to leave through a certain door to avoid the bug.
5  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: Today at 03:42:14 PM
A "buggy nightmare" might be an overstatement. There are bugs, but people have now finished the game and I have seen many forum posts of people with tens of hours in and have had no noticeable bugs. Even with my 10 hours, I have seen one minor bug and I know how to avoid the bigger game breaking bugs ( I understand if double clicking is natural for you, you might not want to play it now though). The game is very playable right now.

Also Crusis, without giving away spoilers, I would say play awhile before you start over with a wizard.

That was ok, but I wouldn't go out with of my way to watch him. Regardless, not sure that even if you like his stand up, it means he should host a show. His pieces on TDS were really unfunny and he can only take the "I'm from South Africa"/black thing so far before it gets old (the clips you posted centered around that, as well as his TDS pieces).

He's already getting silly backlash over tweets aimed at Jews from a couple of years ago.

Trevor Noah taking over The Daily Show.

I have found his Daily Show appearances very unfunny, to the point of muting him when he has been on. I already gave up on Wilmore, so I guess this will free up more TV time for me.
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: March 30, 2015, 05:32:09 PM
Yep, I posted it here earlier. Patch coming this week according to a message on the official forum.

Never seen that, what's the point of using a tiny motherboard in a regular case? Not a big deal by any means, just seems odd when they have the room.

It's not the SSD, there are no moving parts to them. Every SSD I have is silent. Since the OS is on the SSD, just disconnect the power cable from the HDD to see how it sounds.
11  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Blackjack's new gaming rig on: March 29, 2015, 10:24:17 PM
In my experience, SSDs are completely silent, no noise at all. On my Falcon I can sort of hear the HDD, but the fans are loud enough to drown out most of the noise. Never hear the HDD or SSD on my iMac, both are completely quiet.

A hum though, wouldn't that be a power thing?
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: March 28, 2015, 08:43:31 PM
Game breaking bug. Don't double click to equip items. (Reddit link.)

And checking to see if I had this bug, I found another bug. My druid's stag defense boost is supposed to only be active when in stag form, but it is always active on my character. Looking at the official forum, no one has reported this though, so wonder if it's just a glitch in my game. Not that it is a big deal anyway.
13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: March 28, 2015, 08:04:57 PM
You can make characters in the inn. That's why you see people with 6 characters.

It could be that you aren't ready for that battle yet. The game doesn't level creatures like Skyrim, so you can go back to an old save and just do it later.

Magic is hard to use. When casting you will see a red circle, that's the base diameter. The yellow outer circle is the modified range, and that area does not hit your own party members. I try to arrange it so my guys fall in the yellow area when possible. I have stopped using the big AoE spells though, to hard to use effectively.

Edit: got red and yellow backwards.

How did I never see this show? Its amazing! Have seen 4 episodes now and I am addicted. Surprised it doesn't get more hype. Or does it go downhill?

I really, REALLY, want to play this game, but I've promised myself I wouldn't touch it until another patch comes out. We all know how buggy these types of games tend to be.

still, the developers already have my money so I've voted "thumbs up" on their work, and a potential for a sequel.

While I am sure you are right, that there are probably many bugs that will be fixed in the next patch as well as game mechanic adjustments, but 5 hours into the game it seems pretty solid. Following the very active Qt3 thread, very few people are mentioning bugs (of course they are finding other things to bitch about, but that forum has always been pretty harsh). I haven't looked at the official forums or the Steam forums though, I am sure they are full of people with bug reports.

The game is pretty awesome so far. Really enjoying it. Combat is a bit rough, but I never finished BG 1&2, IWD, and NWN because I just don't like the RTwP combat system. Hopefully I can manage this time because I am enjoying it.
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: March 26, 2015, 06:59:17 PM
Character creation took me 40 minutes alone. Kept changing my mind. Went with meadow human druid with stag shape change. So far looking very good, but I am just starting. Had to take a quick break to do something, but about to dive into the game.
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: March 26, 2015, 03:41:36 PM
Reviews are making it sound pretty amazing. I have stuff I need to do, but hope to get a few hours in today.
18  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Top Gear [US] on: March 25, 2015, 07:53:51 PM
Not sure this is convenient for them, I would think that Top Gear is BBC's most popular export and a huge money maker for them. Hate that we are losing the show, but it was probably the right thing to do.
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 03/20/15 - The 'Where the heck is everybody?' Edition on: March 23, 2015, 09:36:09 PM
Mine was a failure. Think I got about 4 hours of CKII in, but had to resort to watching YouTube videos to try to figure out what I was doing wrong. I think I have watched more hours of people playing the game than I have actually played it myself.

Played a bit of Heroes of the Storm as well, but it seems like that is going to take a lot of time to really learn.

School just started up so game play time is now very limited and I really want to play Pillars of Eternity this week...

Am I wrong in thinking Rick was completely in the right giving that guy an ass kicking?

Ass-kicking sure...wanting to kill him was a bit much. It was his speech after the fact that really made him look crazy. Poor Rick is in love as well, no good can become of this.
21  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 5 on: March 23, 2015, 06:14:04 PM
I did really enjoy how this season was different (except that ONE episode Tongue). Them trying to fit in with a new crowd that has it own share of problems, but aren't necessarily evil, was a nice change of pace. Plus, Rick has been losing it for a long time, and credit to the writers, they have been great at showing the gradual slide. Also hinting at what is coming next with the "W" was a great way of building suspense.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: One weird trick for finishing a lot of games on: March 23, 2015, 06:09:09 PM
I don't worry about finishing them, just playing them. Plus I prefer strategy games that aren't always so much about beating them. I have so many games I have barely played, but I am trying to change that. I am never going to beat Crusader Kings II, but I finally gave it some playing times after owning for it two years. That makes me feel better about it (plus it is fun). Even games like XCom which I thoroughly enjoyed, I got the end it and was just such a slog, I never finished it. I play them while they are fun, don't care about finishing them.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (3/24) on: March 23, 2015, 04:55:15 AM
Already preordered Pillars of Eternity.
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Heroes of the Storm on: March 21, 2015, 04:18:17 AM
Wow. Seems simple enough, but so much going on, I was a bit lost. I get the basics, just hard to know where to be, when. The mine opened, I think, and everyone went down there, but I am not sure why. I kept going for the gate and was all alone. I can see my suckiness pissing people off badly in multiplayer.

Other than that, Age of Wonders III. Another game I should have played long ago and that so far is pretty great.


Have you opted into the beta patch for the upcoming Eternal Lords content, or are you sticking with the Golden Realms content for now?

-Autistic Angel

Just the base game still. Playing through the campaigns. Figured I would get the first expansion if I stick with it.

Yes please. Thanks Wonderpug.

In an attempt to learn games I have owned forever and haven't played, I am making a serious attempt to learn Crusader Kings 2 this weekend. Since last week, when I started to try to understand EUIV a bit better, it feels a bit less less daunting at this point. So far really enjoying it. It has a lot more character to it than EUIV and it isn't that difficult once you get the basics down. You can pretty much let time go and just react to events and it is still really fun.

Other than that, Age of Wonders III. Another game I should have played long ago and that so far is pretty great.

Probably need to get back into Cities:Skylines too...
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC]Cities: Skylines on: March 19, 2015, 08:59:07 PM
Hadn't seen that they confirmed it. Saw that they were looking at it to make possible adjustments.


Did it fix your city then Tilt?
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC]Cities: Skylines on: March 19, 2015, 08:51:06 PM
That the patch notes said they nerfed the effect, yes it seems it was intentional but needed to be reduced. Doesn't matter either way, good that they fixed it.

Lee, I had no issues with the streams back when I used them, like anything, you get to know the right sites to use.  I realized quickly though, it was far easier using my Dad's comcast login.     Though, if you ever get to where you want to stream let me know and I'll share my reliable boomarks, and they were reliable with one catch, sometime the commentary isn't English (more often than not it is though).

Thanks, but I am not sure I am ready for that. I am sure eventually Comcast will piss me off enough to do it. If I could just pay however much, I would be perfectly happy. Although NBC's coverage is quite good, I hope they lose the contract and to show games and someone who is willing to put the games online for a fee will pick it up.

I heard today that with HBO Now, you won't be getting it through HBO, but a third party provider. Apple at first, but after that if you want it, you pay your local cable company the money. Comcast still gets their money out of it.
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC]Cities: Skylines on: March 19, 2015, 07:27:05 PM
So they nerfed the parks thing. It was intenional then. I like the game, but they make some odd decisions with it. I think it will eventually become a great city builder after they tweak it a bit more.
32  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Cord Cutting Tool on: March 19, 2015, 07:18:11 PM
LOL, ouch Scaper. Exciting end I guess.

I have never tried the streams Eco, when I had looked in the past many of the sites seemed pretty iffy, so I avoided them. You haven't have any problems? I get up for all the games. Match on at 0430? I am up.

It really is kind of mean the way GT keeps OO refugees from creating new threads on different topics. Instead we're forced to cram all topics into this one OO designated thread.

Really. The soccer thread going last time OO was down was quite fun. Even if people are here temporarily, start threads.

I could start one wishing you a happy birthday, but I'll just do it here. Happy birthday!

Thank god you didn't.  icon_smile Thanks Shannon, nice of you to remember.

Thanks for posting jztemple.

Very interesting that they are keeping a close eye on the parks things. Interesting wording, it could be a bug or it could be a game mechanic that they may or may not fix. I haven't seen the parks problem myself, but I haven't placed many, nor have I played the game that much.

EDIT: For clarity, I'm not trying to quash discussion of the bug or give Lee a hard time for pointing towards alternative explanations for it.  I just don't think that a predictable side effect of Spring Break 2015 will be that every restaurant, bar, hotel, office complex in Fort Lauderdale going out of business.

I agree with you, I was just saying it has been discussed. It sounds silly, but some of the other mechanics in the game are silly as well, so it's a possibility. As I said, at Qt3 there were a few posts about it, Jztemple just quoted the latest one that summed it up.

Whatever the case, it does seem the game could use some tweaking. Either the devs all took a nice vacation or they are working hard on fixes. Has there been any word from them on what they are doing? I am curious on what is next.
