Yesterday I even got impatient and recycled some shitty ski mask so I could have enough crafting material to craft a cosmetic and when I did...I got a second shitty cowboy hat.

Keep in mind that 1 crate grinds down into one common crafting material and ten common materials = 1 uncommon item.  So your item will almost always be pretty unimpressive if you're using your first tier of crate grindings.  A lot of ski masks and head bands.  Still, it's something to do with them.

Keen Dreams  has been placed back up for sale and achievements are back and functional again.

Nightdive Studios seems to be publisher now.

Too bad this isn't the kind of news that gaming media outlets would pick up.  I can just imagine the headlines.  "Nightdive rescues Keen Dreams from Gayben's Flatulent Asshole"

Buyer beware with this.

 

/r/datahoarders reports that these are a new sku (end in NEBB and is only available online) than the ones that have red/white labeled reds (end in NESN and is available in store).  AFAIK no one has checked the new sku (it's only been available full price before now) and reported the drive type. 

 

 

EDIT:

Did you try doing a price match?

Even though the sku is different, you might get lucky.

I'll find out soon enough.  It was cheap enough that I decided whatever was in it, I'd use it as WD intended (as an external) as I always have more than one backup of anything important anyway.

 

I tried earlier on the phone and had no luck.  If I am in the area I might try in the store too.  Worth the effort for fifty bucks.

What are your thoughts on the braided cable? I've seen alot of people talk about cable drag and that it's too stiff and not flexible enough.

 

I suppose I could see where those people are coming from, but personally it doesn't bother me cause my G403 is plugged into the USB port on my G710+ keyboard so the majority of the mouse's cable is just lying bunched together on my desk.  If I had it plugged into my desktop, though, yeah I suppose the cable's stiffness could be a little annoying.

I've got my eye on the G403. Wired for $35, Wireless for $40. Both seem pretty close to historical lows. Tried it out in store a week or so ago and was happy to find out that it felt comfortable to use and reasonably close to the MX518 that I've been on for ~10 years.

I have the G403 Prodigy (USB Wired). I love it. While I do wish it had more buttons on the side and/or on the top left (i.e. see the 502 Proteus' design; I really want *that* mouse) - it's easily the best 5-6 button mouse that I've ever used. Certainly beats my Rosewill Jet Gaming Mouse. Not even close.

 

It comes w/ a small 10g weight - so if you need the mouse to have more weight to it, you can throw that weight in there on the very bottom of the mouse. There's a little slot, where the weight can go. Or, if you like it lighter (which is how I like my mouse), just don't put the weight in there.

 

I also love the Logitech Gaming Software that you can use with it (you have to fetch that online) - you can set-up templates for games, use them for other games (good for if you want one FPS to play like another), create actual profiles for each game, or whatever you desire.

 

In Logitech, I trust.

 

EDIT:

I have the G600 MMO. It's bulky and has a real learning curve to get used to - since it's bigger than most mice and also has tons of keys on the left side of it. But, I only now really use that if I have a game where I really feel like I need to stick tons of keys on the left side of the mouse. 

 

I really want that G502 Proteus (with 11 buttons all over the mouse), which looks like it could be a possible nice go-between for the G403 (around 5-6 buttons) and G600 (i.e. 12 buttons or so on the left and a few more elsewhere)

I have the G710+. Love it.

 

I do like G710+ better than the G213 Membrane KB. G213 is certainly quieter and feels similar to the G710+, but the G710+ has an edge. G710+ just feels a little bit more responsive and I feel like I know better from the feels of the keys (and I can really hear it, since they are loud) when I actually hit the keys (since they're MX Blues on the 710+) - which feels very important for when I play shooting games like Mass Effect: Andromeda or Quantum Break.

 

Though, I do like the G213's RGB lighting schemes and other optional things I can do w/ the keyboard. Not a big deal, though - as I prefer performance (from the G710+) over the coolness factor of the lighting (on the G213).

Personally, I'm finding bundles less and less appealing.  Like IG is all trash, I don't even check IG anymore.  Not willing to pay $1 for one game I want that's probably worth .10 at most.  Groupees been trash.  The only good Bundlestars tend to be pay $3-4 for a game that would be $4-5 at 75% off and then get a ton of other games that aren't bad but you wouldn't have bought otherwise.  Humble $1 tier can still be good from time to time, but the BTA and high tiers are never really worth it because I am paying for stuff I wouldn't buy otherwise.  

First I cut Groupees, then IG.  Bundle stars has been less interesting (wait does it even exist anymore?!), and Humble has been maybe $1 buys.  I might give the monthly one shot under IGN, because I am a sucker.

 

No wonder my coin collection has been growing again...

Well, thanks for helping me complete that.  Could have done without the snotty commentary and BM slow roll at the end.  Ah well.  CAG drama and someone else to mute.

Hey man,
Sorry if I came across as a jerk there. I recognized the deck you were playing as discard warlock which is countered by my Quest warlock and was just having fun. Didn't realize that you were going to be so sensitive so I just want to formally apologize. My bad.

What are the fakey thoughts on Far Cry 5 from GamersGate using Zgold? I think I got an email about some such shit the other day, but cannot find it now.

Spoiler


I don't understand the reference Treybot, are you suggesting that my apology was somehow sarcastic or an non-apology? 

 

It was 1 game of hearthstone that Mooby lost and felt immediately offended. Thus, he promptly blocked me (and made a post about his woeful experience) so I just want to be the adult here and let him know that I recognize I was being the jerk and tell him that I'm sorry.

 

If he still feels offended after that, then whatever, I've done what I can.

I love the 502, but the cable braiding is trash.  I'm on my 4th or 5th 500 series mouse, all but one have had the same problem:  Eventually, the braiding frays and has a very good chance of pinching the USB cable to the point of breakage.  

 

Here's a pic of my current 502 Spectrum cable.

Average life expectancy is 18 to 36 months based on my abusage, so I always buy Best Buy's Indef Proof $20 warranty and swap it out for a new one every two years.  I like the mouse enough to put up with the exchange hassle.

For playing idling games.

I see. So for reference, in Hearthstone Mooby was playing Discard Warlock which centers around making your opponent discard the cards in his/her hand. 

 

My deck, Quest Warlock, is center around this card.

It's a bad deck that I just play for fun because it rarely wins. So yeah, the match was pretty one-sided.

Call me crazy but could you not argue that buying 1 or 2 games you like is much better than buying many that barely qualify as games at all?

Every time I come here, I read saddening tales like this... and then someone posts a Coral JPEG :-P


You deserve better than Coral jpegs, Carl.

You jerk, don't you know how much money it costs Mooby to have the Geek Squad on the phone during the match to give him Hearthstone advice?

Wait to see if it gets Nvidia GPU bundled and see if you can have someone activate it for you on your account unless you have a 1070 ot 1080 yourself.  I mean it's not bad, but doing 10% off when they used to do 20% off Ubi pre-orders is kind of lame.

Are you kidding me? Mooby can't afford that! He just watches videos on YouTube.
