By the way, where is Lockdown?  He usually loves playing good games, and I want to hear what he thinks before the thread wanders too far into spoiler territory.

-Autistic Angel

Here.  I am smack dab in the middle of Dragon Age: Inquisition, which is the only reason I haven't picked this up yet.  It would be nice if I could at least come close to finishing one RPG before picking up another.

I do have a basic question that I would classify as non-spoiler:  If a person makes their own party, do they miss out on the pre-gen character's stories, banter, etc...?  (Do such things even exist in this game?) The answer to that will have a huge impact on what I decide to do once I pick the game up.

Sorry I was busier this morning than expected.  I loved loved loved this finale, so much packed into a 90 minute show!!!  Honestly I think I barely took a breath for the entire hour I was watching the episode.  I really thought Glenn might bite it, Aaron too, and for a second I even thought Rick might go.  Can you imagine if they had killed Rick off in that sequence; that seriously would have been one of the biggest twists/moments in TV history.  I would have been bummed but the story possibilities killing Rick would be incredible, particularly since they would diverge further from the comic.  Who would be the new leader?  Morgan?  Carol?  Michonne?  Speaking of Carol, she was freaking awesome even in limited capacity.  I love how she dressed Rick down ("sunshine!") and it was such a great counterpoint to high-and-mighty Rick exiling her a while back.   The way she made Pete almost pee in his pants was so sweet, as was her declaration that all they'd need to deal with these "children" were knives.  She's in full command of her faculties and her new-found confidence, and she's pretty much the only one 100% completely thinking strategically.   If this were Survivor, she'd be my easy pick to win.  I also loved the short scene with Sasha lying in the grave.  I thought it was simple and creepy but beautifully shot, which just made it that much more disturbing. 

Wolves!!!  I don't remember them in the comics, but I'm pretty sure someone had said they were in the comics too.  I don't think they were a big deal, though, and that's kind of what it sounded like the implication was from Scott Gimple's letter on next season.  The next major threat should probably be Negan but hopefully that's back half of next season.

I only ever watch(ed) Jon Stewart in clips that people embed in various blogs and forum posts and social media and whatnot, which people do quite frequently -- so I don't watch the Daily Show but I see a lot of its highlights. The measure of this new fellow's success will be whether such clips keep popping up or quietly disappear.

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.

You should check out Rick and Morty, and The Venture Bros.

Does Rick get less irritating after the first episode?

Honestly, I recorded all of the episodes because of Dan Harmon, but I haven't been able to watch more than the first one because that dude is just...blech.

One man's "blech" is another man's treasure.  Rick is an out-frigging-standing character.  I think he's perfect the way he is.  He's the sleazy, selfish version of Doc Brown that we all secretly wished for while watching Back to the Future all those years ago...well, those of us with borderline sociopathic tendencies, anyway.

But to answer your question:  no, he (thankfully) never changes.  I would say go ahead and free up your DVR space.   icon_wink

Yeah, that's the HOTAs one that's out of my price range at $400. Plus without the stick twist I imagine you would want the rudder pedals which is another $200.

I was trying to say the combined price could be about $200, depending on sales.  That's about how much I paid for my setup.  Rudder pedals certainly would be nice, but I've been making do just fine using throttle buttons for my middle finger and ring finger to do rudder controls.

Helldivers got some Penny Arcade comic and blog post love:

What Lies Beneath comic strip
*While amusing, I think a funnier comic could be made out of the tendency of reinforcement and stratagem drop pods crushing Helldivers left and right.  icon_razz

Tycho: What Lies Beneath (blog post)

For my part, I'm not too pleased with how the over arching campaign and event stuff works and have not played as much the last few days. Dev reps poke in here and there at PS forums to say they're taking notes about all the feedback so we'll see what future updates bring.

While I gave up on flight sticks ages ago (I think a Logitech Extreme is mothballed in my closet somewhere, that was my last purchase) I do swear by the durability of CH flight sticks in the day. I have fond memories of playing stuff like Dynamix' WWII combat flight sims and various Star Wars games in the 1990s.

I could never quite in my mind justify the prices on Thrustmaster's various offerings but I always enjoyed reading about them.  icon_smile

Audiences the world over had so many unanswered questions after it ended.  I know I would love to get some closure.

You want closure.  Try being a fan of The Phoenix.  And what happened to the Misfits of Science?

Thinking I should just get the cheapie Thustmaster T-Flight HOTAS X and forget about the Saitek ones for now. But keep thinking I should just roll the dice and get the X55-Rhino or X52-Pro as I have almost $200 in Amazon gift cards built up so it won't cost me much to try.

So still looking to hear experiences on those three setups on the games mentioned.
