Morning, OTT.

Did I mention I finished The Witcher 2. Great game, but the story is confusing. Might warrant a second play through. Highly recommended if you've been thinking about it.

Now, what to attack in my backlog next...

We did our taxes today. Pretty decent refund, which I guess means we are doing it wrong, but I still like getting a little chunk of change.

I like getting money back too. We usually end up getting $3000-$5000 back every year. Got less than that year because the wife went back to work.
The refund is always something we use for house improvements or a big purchase (car, etc).

The refund is usually spent and gone within a couple months.

Going to finish Portal 2 tonight. I have digital stuff in my Instant Game Collection from PS Plus that's over a year old that I need to at least try.
Lego Lord of the Rings is up on the shelf and pretty tempting too.

For anyone who plays World of Warcraft and uses Time Cards, the Buy 2 Get 1 Free promotion for PC and Video Games at Target this week works on them. I just got 3 of them for $60. Also your Red Card also works for an additional 5% off.

The "How Did This Get Made?" podcast is my new favorite thing. I've gone through like 20 episodes in the past week.

Super Mario Brothers. Have you gotten to that one yet?

I don't know why but I bought that new Duke Nukem port on steam. So far it seems pretty solid but that game is old as shit.

Cleveland sticking it LBJ and ending his streak tonight is pretty great. I know its the NBA, but I would be shocked if they blow a 26 point lead with 20 minutes to go.

And just like that it's down to a ten point lead with a minute left in the 3rd.

I've never played that one. I did once find a copy of Skullmonkeys for Playstation at a yard sale that I flipped on ebay for a nice profit.

I'm sure the guy I bought this from did the same.

Hint: I paid more for this than I paid for SimCity last week.

I really want to see them break the record, just to witness history.

I've seen what complete copies go for, so I can ballpark it.

I hate the Heat so I always hope whoever they play kicks their ass. They are on par with the Yankees as far as how much I hate them.

Yes, and 2...3 is around here somewhere.

Morning..

Day 4 of work. Just 3 to go! Hopefully another quiet night. I spent about 2 hours last night doing nothing but scanning tags into the EMR. (electronic medical record)

And finished Portal 2. Game seemed definitely easier than the first. Not messing with the co-op stuff, although I do like the developer commentary.

Co-op has its own campaign and is definitely more challenging. I'd recommend it.

The guy who played Dutch on The Shield got old. Just got home from the gym and saw him in as a guest star on SVU.

Anyone play prototype 2? Worth it for $5?

#380 JStryke  

Posted 22 March 2013 - 02:59 PM

I haven't played it, but I had a 5 dollar certificate I haven't used it, so figured why not pick it up.

On that note, I can't decide whether to bite on Far Cry for $30 or see if it drops even further in price.

I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. http://www.twitch.tv/jstryker416

Unfortunately, it seems our expedition to food carts has been canceled due to lack of a sitter.

I wonder if you. Can do that with station cash for planet side

If you're getting over a grand from taxes you're letting the govt get too much of your money.

This year the state gave me back 700 and the Feds cost me 400. Nearly a wash.

I think I owe 200 to the state and 100 to the feds. The only way to not owe NY when you live here is to have them take out more than they do when you claim 0.

I can't believe NCSU choked this season away. Depressing.

At least there is a new Duck Tales game coming out.

Not as good as the first one but was fun enough. Beat it in around 8 hours. No real drive to go back to it after that.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

FYI the Ducktales game is a remake of the first one. Wonder if they'll ever do something with the 2nd one? Would love to play it sometime but don't want to spend exorbitant amount of $ to play it.

I'm sure it's 100% dependent upon the sales of this remake.

I did end up eating at the Frying Scotsman.

Pretty good, but I should have been more adventerous and went for the Indian or Thai food.
Shame my wife couldn't join me. Eating by yourself is just kinda empty.

I started Skyrim again on the Xbaww. I lost all of my items on the PC version, which demotivated the shit out of me.

I really like playing as a Dark Elf, though. I like to try something different each time I play it, and this time I'm using only magic. (I do carry an emergency mace, though.)

All magic is so much fun. Disintegrating fools with fingertip electricity makes me feel like The Emperor. :drool:

Back to losing all of my shit on the PC:

I would store all of my shit in Meeko's Shack, which has a safe container in it. The DLC patch reset all of the contents of Meeko's Shack, for some reason, which refilled the dresser in his house with the original garbage that was in it, and wiped ALL of my stuff out of it.

I made a thread about it on the Steam boards, asking if anyone knew how to unpatch the game or revert it all, somehow, and about 20 people responded scolding me and shitting on me for putting my stuff in a container that wasn't in a home I owned. :lol:

Gamers are the worst. They smell just like used hot dog boiling water.
