I wrapped up Act II of Pillars of Eternity. My gaming this year has been a really slow burn, but quality.

Probably some Elder Scrolls Online, although my enthusiasm is starting to wane a bit.  Not having a central marketplace/auction house to sell stuff sucks, and I feel like I can never sell anything even though I'm in two very active trading guilds.  Might give Age of Wonders 3 a look too.  The pinball high score thread over at OO has rekindled my interest in both Zen Pinball and Pinball Arcade...need to get back a few of those high scores.

Also working my way through Trailer Park Boys on Netflix for the first time.  Such a funny show.

Between bouts of hacking my lungs out and 102 degree fevers, I managed to spend a good chunk of time with ESO.

I was having a really tough time hitting and was striking out 10+ times per game and couldn't figure out why. I couldn't get my Dynamic Difficulty above Rookie which was insulting because I was an All-Star level hitter last year. Then I read that turning off Guess Pitch helps because while guessing correctly is a huge boost, it also hampers your ability to make good contact when you swing at a pitch you didn't guess correctly. I didn't know that, I thought it just gave you a boost and had no negative side effects otherwise.

So I turned off the Guess Pitch feature and just started looking for pitches in certain locations myself, using directional hitting to help square up a pitch in hitters counts. And in the last three games I've got 10+ hits and scored 6+ runs and improved my hitting difficulty from Rookie to Veteran, and am already making progress towards the next step up.  I should hit my sweet spot for difficulty soon.

Dynamic Difficulty is still the best feature that anyone has ever incorporated into a sports video game, by the way.

State of Decay should be Xbox One and PC, not PS3.  I'm going to give that one a go again.

I also just finished downloading Broken Age.

And what's up with The Golf Club?  That came out months ago, but I've seen it on other new release lists, too.

EDIT: Turns out the Golf Club is having a retail release this week.  The disc version has tropical settings and a season mode, which will apparently be added as DLC for the download version (though it's still in the future, for some reason).

Agreed, I just want to use the thing, not find the best mods.

Anyway, watch just got charged and changed to shipping. (Makes up for that Arsenal game this morning.)

Edit: Will be here Tuesday.

Mine coming Tuesday as well

Quote from: Lee
I pictured you as Android guy YK.

Nope, far from it. I started out buying an iPhone, and then my company gave me a Droid. I used it for about a week and then told them to keep it. Couldn't stand it. I've just never been one to tinker and customize - I detest added complexity for the sake of personalization. Just give me something simple that works. Unlike a lot of tech people, I'm a fan of "walled garden" ecosystems. I prefer curated experiences over unlimited freedom.

This describes me, also. I'm a hardcore PC Gamer, but for my laptop, tablet,  phone, and Internet router, Apple cannot be beaten. Everything is easy to use, works in perfect harmony, and has an extensive ecosystem that I enjoy.

There are definitely good Android systems out there (I own the new Dell Venue with the OLED screen) but the fragmentation of Android is on another level in comparison to OSX and iOS.
