And the Auction House system is outlined here:

In a nutshell:

$1 fee for equipment.
15% fee for commodities
15% fee for cashing out to Paypal, as well as the 3.9% or whatever Paypal charges.

I'm not replacingr anything right now.  Well I need to talk to ASUS about replacing my motherboard....again....because the freaking USB ports keep cutting out. 

Outside of that, I'm going to get a SSD when Windows 8 rolls out.  My CPU is an Intel i5 (2500k) and my GPU is Geforce 460 GTX, so I'm fairly solid there.
163  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III on: April 30, 2012, 06:09:32 PM
You'll level 1-8 before you see the Skeleton King.  Probably to 9, maybe 10 if you do the side quests and such.   So yeah, first 10 levels are cake.  I figure as long as you're moving forward you'll probably be doing fine for a while after that also.  Figure level 30ish by the end of main game?
164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III on: April 30, 2012, 02:34:47 AM
Yeah, I already have it preordered.  CE from Amazon~

Overachiever GET. smile
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III on: April 27, 2012, 07:58:34 PM
The achievements get you banner options which carry over to the main  game, yes.  I'll only have played Act 1 up to the Skeleton King, so it's not like I"m spoiling huge chunks of the game.
167  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III on: April 27, 2012, 06:22:25 PM
Yup.  I'm gonna be on most of the weekend grinding.  Here's what I've got left:

Raise Blacksmith to level 4:  Very Easy
Raise Monk to Level 13 (from 9):  Easy
Create Barbarian, Beat Game, Become Level 13:  Somewhat Easy and time-consuming.
Create Demon Hunter, Beat Game, Become Level 13:  Somewhat Easy and time-consuming.
Raise 5 classes from the dead:  Easy but insanely time-consuming (finding someone to do it, after all).

Will do.  Is there a point to doing hardcore, btw?  I haven't tried yet. biggrin
169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III on: April 25, 2012, 07:52:18 AM
Got Jar of Souls.  Just need to get the other now, then level 3 chars to max.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III on: April 25, 2012, 06:56:17 AM
If anyone is still in the closed beta, I need people for 2 things.

1)  Jar of Souls:  I can't find anyone that's doing part 3 publicly.

2)  Rez people:  Again, can't find people for this achievement.
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III on: April 21, 2012, 07:28:21 AM
Coop is fucking insane.  WAVES of monsters, so there's a lot less tendency to 'run around and see what you find' and more 'holy shit stay close so we don't DIE'.

Is there a list somewhere of all of them in (world) chronological order?

this might be what you're looking for.  it's got them by author, release date, series, title or chronological order in Realm years which also breaks it down into when a particular novel starts and ends (if it spans several years) and when short stories take place.

Thanks.  I'm almost done with the Netherim trilogy right now.
176  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: LTTP: Mass Effect (1) on: April 11, 2012, 07:06:24 PM
I'll give that point.  I hate hate hate hate HATED Pinnacle Station.  What a complete waste of money DLC that was.
177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: LTTP: Mass Effect (1) on: April 11, 2012, 10:02:54 AM
1)  You will make money hand over fist before you're 15 hours in.  Money will become worthless before end game.

2)  You will not make level 60 unless you do two playthroughs.  Even then,it's not definite.

3)  SHoot everything from outside of the Mako for mass XP.

4)  Choose either all Paragon or all Renegade.  Don't be wishy-washy.  Either be a hero or an asshole. smile

5)  There are some bugs in the first game that affect the second (Conrad Verner and the Asari Consort specifically).  Make sure to edit your save file before you import it to ME2, if you do.

Have fun!
178  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Dungeons and Dragons Novels on: April 05, 2012, 06:57:36 PM
I actually want to get most of the FR books at some point.

I've been slowly picking them up, starting with the Drizzt and Elminster stuff.  Is there a list somewhere of all of them in (world) chronological order?
179  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: SSD alert! on: March 28, 2012, 05:46:35 AM
I can wait.  $1.50 per GB still is a bit high for me. smile

Thanks tho.

Yeah, the quick cuts were annoying.  Also, the movie /felt/ rushed.  It didn't feel like I was there over two hours.  This isn't really a complaint, just a comment.  I did enjoy it, although you could see where they made some changes.  Some of them worked, some of them...not as much. 

I'd say 7.5/10 tho

Note:  It's cheaper to do the individual books.  Granted, with 80% off, it's not MUCH cheaper, but it is cheaper. smile

The other big thing about the movie is that they're talking about how much it's losing....given that the fiscal quarter ends in 10 days. 

That has absolutely NOTHING to do with how the movie actually is doing, and EVERYTHING to do with 'OMG WALL STREET IS UPSET!'

It was #3 in the box office last weekend, but it's going to take a huge hit this weekend (Hunger Games, yo). 
184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I shall partake in the Mass Effect Experience (TM) - who is with me? on: March 15, 2012, 07:30:45 AM
Down to about 4-5 side quests before going to Ilos.  I'm going to need to play one more time through to save Wrex and Ashley (Kaiden is kinda useless to me)

Yeah, the Mako pisses me off in general 'cause of that.

And yes, a lot of the side missions are the sameo ld crap.  I'm still having fun though. smile

Gee, you mean my vote might matter for a change? The primaries are usually over by the time they reach MA. Will I go with the mildly evil guy who might win, or the purely evil guy who can't? I swore I would never vote for Romney again after his term as governor...but really, Newt fucking Gingrich???? Maybe the crazy guy will still be in it. He'd be a good none-of-the-above cop-out.

I suppose I could always take a Dem ballot instead....

Nah, my vote won't matter. Romney will sweep the Massachusetts Moderate vote here.

Nope.  Your vote still won't matter.  They're all corrupt.

Contact Apple support and tell them you have unauthorized purchases.  I can't promise what will happen, but it's worth trying.  Other than standard security stuff (and Apple has an article about that exact thing), I don't know what to tell you (that I wouldn't later get in trouble for)
193  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III on: February 20, 2012, 08:48:18 AM
Holy crap the Auction House is horribly-designed.  You can't view items unless you have a character of that class, you can't just search for an item name...

How the hell did Blizzard not realize that what they have with WoW works...and do something similar?  This is worse than SW:TOR's abortion of an Auction House.

It's not like it really matters.  Whoever wins the Senate/House/White House, it changes very little for the majority of the people in this country. 

The corporations and the wealthy have won.  We've lost.  There's really only one other solution at this point, but we have to pull ourselves away from reality TV long enough to actually be willing to do it.

Just purchased the LG 55LW5600 for $1280ish with 6 pairs of 3D glasses.  Only drawback is that it's not eligible for Amazon Prime, so I have to wait about a week or so for it to show up.  I'll get an extended warranty through LG as well.
