Finished it. 64.4 hours, including a few known quests that I didn't finish, and I'm sure a few more that I didn't pick up. Be warned that when you <insert reference here that you'll know when you see it> after battling <another reference>, that will end your game. No wandering around afterward to finish up loose ends. You'll have to load a save prior to <reference #1> if you want to clean up before hitting the Easy button.

Where's the expansion? I want it now!

Update: 52 hours, still not through the game.  Granted, I'm taking my time and exploring a lot of stuff I don't 'have' to.  Am down to level 9 of the Endless Paths.  Fun stuff.  If tomorrow's patch manages to clean up the glitches as promised, I'm pretty confident that Pillars will have a place right up there with the classics it was designed to emulate.  I haven't spent this much time on one game in a week's span in a decade.

Aelys... Wow.
4  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: March 31, 2015, 07:25:07 PM
Yes, that's how I got past it. I'll go nuke the bastard after the patch.
5  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: March 31, 2015, 05:11:18 PM
Avoid raedric's and don't double click, and you've cut your chance of a bug tremendously. Patch will be out this week.
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: March 31, 2015, 01:02:42 PM
While Destructor's list of bugs is quite serious, I wouldn't encourage anyone to wait to play for a patch. The worst bugs-crash on transition and it em - related - are simple to avoid. Don't double click to equip items, and don't go to the completely optional Hold until a patch hits.

No.

That's what I thought, just thought the wording of avoiding playing PoE, since that is the only mode...  Unless character creation is a game in itself.  For me it's not, I pick and then I go smile
PoE is Pillars of Eternity.
8  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: March 31, 2015, 01:26:24 AM
No.
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: March 28, 2015, 01:20:28 PM
Yes. It is similar to the old-school stuff, but with a lot of the frustrating old-engine stuff improved. For example, gathering your party before venturing forth will voice the issue once for old-times sake, then auto-resolve itself.

I love this game so far-18 hours in.
10  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: March 27, 2015, 10:21:32 PM
I'm at 13 (wowsers) and have seen precisely one bug, limited to a particular area which can be put off until later. It's pretty solid.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: March 26, 2015, 10:40:35 PM
Loving it so far.  Closest thing to BG3 we'll get, but I think that's actually selling it a little short.  This is a new world, with a new RPG system.  And they're good ones.  Doesn't feel stale at all. 
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: March 26, 2015, 03:25:49 PM
And I see I missed the last two replies.  Whew.  I nearly had to lower the repute in which I hold the GT community.  smile
13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: March 26, 2015, 03:25:01 PM
Really, no discussion since 2012?  Who's chomping at the bit for release in 35 min? 

<-- this guy.

Rip no longer runs the server.  That's FishPants, and he's sipping margaritas.
15  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: OO off line for a short time on: March 17, 2015, 05:49:41 PM
I believe this is the first time since we switched providers many moons ago.
16  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Kiva - Microlending to the less fortunate on: March 17, 2015, 04:08:35 PM
What I did was set up an automatic $5 deposit each month. After a few years of that, plus repayments on existing loans, I've reached a point where I never make other deposits yet still get to make new loans frequently.

That's pretty damned cool Zaxxon!  I missed this during the holiday madness, but that's cool.  I think I'll take a look myself!

Sweet! 

Since my initial post in Sept, the group has moved from $2,600 lent to over $3,400.  The more, the merrier!

Arise, dead thread!  With OO down, my update lands here at ye friendly olde lands of GamingTrend.  The group is now up to $6,750 lent.  Rock on, folks.  Rock on. 

Incidentally, I just had my first significant default this morning, bringing my default rate up to 1.66%. 
19  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: OO off line for a short time on: March 17, 2015, 03:01:50 PM
The overlords have been notified.  FishPants is on vacation, however, so I do not yet have an expected resolution time.  Unless someone wants to go retrieve him.

Not for alliance purposes.
21  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Marvel Puzzle Quest on: August 05, 2014, 04:50:55 AM
Any MPQ players here on GT? Over on OO we've recently banded together into a fairly impressive alliance generating steady ISO and competition rewards.  Would be happy to join forces with GT if any of you are as hooked on MPQ as we are.

Cthulhu has returned the site to us.

24  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: OO off line for a short time on: May 29, 2014, 02:08:34 PM
Yes, OO is down again.  The proper authorities have been notified, the Avengers are assembling, etc.

14, 10, whatever.  smile  I had a blast, as well.  Hopefully we can make this a regular thing, and I can figure out why my 'vote for any gametype' config isn't working.
27  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: UT2004, anyone? on: May 15, 2014, 12:43:30 AM
Looks like we should have several people on around 10 EST.  Feel free to start up earlier if you're free, though.  No need to wait for me.

THE POWER OF STEAM SALES COMPELS YOU!

After some discussion on OO, I've brought back my UT2004 server.  A few of us OOers are planning to play tonight starting around 10 PM Eastern.  Are any of you up for some UT?

Stats
Server is 174.16.220.160, and the game join password is 'cthulhu.'
Extra content loaded: available in a zip file here. Extract into your UT2004 folder to avoid having to download from my server.

More impressions... likely will grab this one day when it's on sale...

I've posted more impressions in the OO thread, but the tl;dr version is that I'm loving it. I'm on mission five of the first campaign and am nearing 35 hours played.

Can't. Stop. Playing.

No GTers are playing this one? :o

I watched Europa Report and thought it was actually pretty good.  Itís basically what you would get if NASA made a found footage movie.  Itís a bit on the slow side but if youíre patient, quite enjoyable.
Just watched this late last week. I also enjoyed it.

Thanks for posting this. I've heard about this before but never gotten around to doing anything. I'll join you guys today after work if I have some time (and if not then definitely the next day). It sounds fun. Do we get reports about how the money is spent and the end result?

Sorry for the late reply... Yes, mist of the time you will receive a periodic update, but that depends on the Kiva partner on the ground. Some are better than others.

I'm into book 11, here... Slow and steady.

Getting really close to our 100th team loan now (96 currently).  Perhaps consider spreading some holiday cheer if the year has been good to you.

I just requested to join as well, with my name Shane. 

Acceptified!

In fact, I got a bonus just now for your join using my invite link.  According to the promotion you should have one, too.  Not sure why you wouldn't.

Signed up as Anonymous and sent a request to join OO.. No free $25 though...

Just OKed your team join.  Odd on the bonus, as I got one today on an invitee join. Maybe there's a delay.

FWIW, a bunch more loans went out this weekend--if any of those were stealth GT members, thanks!
