Rittchard, how did that work?  Did a legendary drop for you in-game and a duplicate was auto-sent to me?  Did the game notify you that it was sent?  Anyway, thanks!

It happened really fast, I just saw a note that a gift was sent to Torfish.  I don't know if it was a duplicate or not, but I was playing a Witch Doctor as well so maybe....

I think if there's a legendary drop in your game, there's a small % chance of another random legendary sent to someone from friends list.

I would probably prefer yaw on the stick and the thrusters on other (hand or pedals or both).  Currently though I have just a stick so thrusters are on the hat.

TrackIR should be here on the 28th

edit: just noticed you mention the analog thumb stick.  Do the thrusters have analog control?  I thought they were on or off by design.  If so I would like that a lot.

If anyone's still comparison shopping HOTAS options, I went back and forth a ton between the X52 and the CH Products options, and ended up deciding on CH Products.  In general, CH seems to have a better reputation for hardiness compared to the X52.  Saitek stuff gets some "I've never had a problem" reviews along with "XYZ broke after 1/3/12 months", whereas CH gets almost entirely "it's worked for 5/10/20 years flawlessly" reviews.  

The big omission on CH is that there's no yaw twist on the stick, but that's also one of the first points of failure on the X52.  I mapped yaw left/right to buttons on the throttle, which works for me but may make others unhappy.  In the CH's favor, it has a thumb analog stick on the throttle which is fantastic for the lateral thrusting in Elite.  Point of preference, CH's throttle moves directly forward/back instead of arcing over an axis like the X52.

Well, I know I used to like hack and slash games with fat loot a lot, and in general would say I still do.  Hell, I was just playing Marvel Heroes 2015 last weekend and enjoying it, and that's basically online Diablo with superheroes.

I didn't like Diablo 3 on launch for many reasons (auction house, bad loot because of balance for AH, always online/server issues, etc etc).  Hearing everybody say this was the definitive version that fixes everything and adds magical action combat made me want to try it again.

We'll see, maybe once I get past the content I know I will have a different opinion.  Or maybe I need to change classes.  I chose the Crusader since everybody said they loved it so much, but it's not super interesting to me yet.

Keep in mind that the game is designed so that the more you play, the more options open up for you in all senses.  The game at level 70 and Paragon level 50 is a completely different animal than it is in the early stages.  There are different modes of play, you have access to all active and passive skills plus refinement bonuses from Paragon levels, probably all legendary or set equipment, etc etc. and the battles will ramp up in difficulty with tons of mobs with special abilities that will drive you nuts. 

I'm thinking once you get your first few rares and legendaries, plus level high enough that you have more skill slots open and multiple choices for skills and runes on each, it should become much more interesting.  That's probably just a few hours of play.  If it still seems dull then maybe it's just not the class or game for you.  Maybe try a wizard or shaman as they play fairly differently from Crusader in that case.  Also don't forget to take advantage of the crafting guy in the early going.  He can fill a key weak spot in your gear with some nice rares.

Created a witch doctor last night and immediately got a notification that I had something in my mailbox.  It was a level 11 sweet legendary item from someone in my friend's list.  Pretty cool.   

It was ME!!!  But I wish I could take more credit for it, it seemed like it just auto-sent you something while I was playing.  I don't know how it makes the decision, but at least it answers the question for me as to how am I supposed to know what my friends can use.

I also got my first Nemesis last night from Triggyrcut, barely survived that.

And oh yeah, playing on Vita is pretty damn sweet.  Only thing I don't like is the L2/R2 buttons (or lack thereof), but I think I can work around that somehow.

I got Canada, which most people joke Vermont is part of already…

Where in Vermont? I loved my time in Burlington and elsewhere.
I live in South Burlington.  I went to college here and haven't really felt the desire to leave.

I wouldn't go so far as to say they've "lost it" (the songwriting is still very solid)...more that they've gone in a direction I would have preferred they didn't.  Most of what made me love Opeth was the creative interplay between brutal death metal and stunningly beautiful melodies.  It made for a very unique combination and was always an fun listen.  This dynamic is lost with the move to all prog, which makes it far less interesting, IMHO.

That said, I've listened to this new one a couple times.  It's actually pretty good...much better than "Heritage", anyways.

Maybe "lost it" is a bit too strong, because I still do like Opeth, and Storm Corrosion for that matter, but I think Mikael Akerfeldt is mellowing out a bit too much. The melodies mixed with the death metal, as you mentioned, were what made Opeth interesting, and that seems to be gone for now. I believe Akerfeldt has said he wants to get back to something heavier eventually, but that's not enough for me, I hope he goes back to something like the original sound, not just heavier. For instance with Bloodbath he does harder stuff, but it is no where near as interesting as Opeth's classic stuff.

Anyway, listening to Pale Communion now, it's ok. Hopefully I just need a few listens to it. Still, they haven't gone into Metallica's direction yet, where I won't even give their new stuff a chance. It's just now there is Old-Opeth and New-Opeth.
