You mentioned the dreaded L word. Prepare to be banned. How dare you. Don't you know how terrible those things are?

Laptops??!?!

 

I've been using gaming laptops since 2016. That one's still kicking just fine (Acer Nitro w/ i7 4720HQ, 4GB 960m, 16 GB RAM; W10 x64), thanks.

 

And my SC15 is taking on most games that at 1080p60fps.

Oh man, don't you know that MysterD has places to be? I mean, he doesn't go anywhere, but what if he needed to play games in a cafe someday? Like in a save the world scenario? What if he was stuck on a desktop and we all died because he didn't have a gaming laptop?

My 3x ROG and now MSI laptops laugh at some of what people say.  Laptops ain't the shit platform they used to be.  Hell, I run my Rift off my laptop on Ultra settings for all but the most recent pieces of eye candy.

That's a pretty good deal. I paid $49 for that version when it came out on Steam.

 

I've played 94 hours so far and have completed the story, the Handsome Jack DLC, and almost done with the Hammerlock DLC.

 

I recommend it if you like the series, because for better or worse, that's exactly what it is. I've heard some of the fanboys whine about the story, but I'm more into the gameplay and the story, imo, is fine.

 

The good:

- much more interesting and unique guns.

- Very well built, diverse worlds.

- Some much-needed QOL improvements.

- Some pretty decent new Vault Hunters

- Many favorites from past games appear and are featured... some you even play alongside briefly

- Both available DLC are quite good and impressively long. (included with super-duper version listed by Mooby)

 

One thing I really appreciate is I'm not going to have to play through the game twice per character to max my player level. I'm going to hit 57 easily enough. They have had lots of free events so far, which is nice. Got that free time now, ya know.

part of me is kinda hesitant to spend 45 bucks on it when it can probably be had for like 30 by black friday but then again now is a good time to get into such a timesink of a game

Still waiting for them to remove Denuovo so maybe I'll keep waiting to see a lower price.  Still, $45 for the game plus all the (currently planned) DLC seems like a really good deal.  I'm sure they'll do some more DLC just to efff people.

Mick Gordon (composer for Doom 2016 and Doom Eternal) likely won't work in the Doom franchise again:
 
Info:
- Some audio-fans noticed the mix itself for Doom: Eternal isn't as great as previous Doom 2016.
- Gordon revealed he didn't have much to do with the mixing.
- Gordon mixed a few tracks: Meathook, Command and Control, etc.
- Gordon is said, by many fans, to be a great sound engineer and mixer.
- Most of the mix was done by Bethesda, Gordon says.
- Gordon said the off "time signature changes are a result in someone in marketing piecing this track together without any musical knowledge."
- Gordon said that he likely won't work in the franchise ever again.

Been mainly playing Deep Sky Derelicts the past week, so here is some thoughts about it. I'm likely dropping it, but there has been some positive for sure.

 

1st of all the story is somewhat nonsensical. It is mainly told through one character who helps with the navigation and a few people in an area you're exploring. It is sometimes super light on story and sometimes characters talk way too much. Overall it's OK enough but not great. I like the graphics quite a bit and know they were going for a Darkest Dungeon look here, but it's more sc-fi. The music is also generally decent, though is more background noise than anything. The battle noises are generally good and make everything feel like a strong impact.

 

You generally have to explore an area while doing 2 quests. 1 of them is the navigation quest where you get data to eventually find the mothership or something. The other is something dealing with the main characters there on the level. It's very predictable but OK. The main reason I'm likely dropping it is because battles after a while seem to play slowly and sometimes unfairly. While characters like brawlers get a good amount of HP, the other supporting characters if focused on by enemies get eaten alive right away by damage. I've lost my medic so many times because of this. The battles also drag for the most part especially with some enemies being damage sponges having very high health or some combination of high health/shields. It makes every encounter a bit more dangerous, but drags so often at times. Also once a character falls on your team, the rest of your team should retreat, though with high damage enemies they will likely fall fast too.

 

Most of the action is exploring and getting items, getting through obstacles and finding objectives. You have a map that shows enemies when scanned, obstacles and points of interest along with hazards if you fight in those rooms. There is a Diablo style loot system which give bonuses and all through weapons, tools, and shields. It's neat for the skills for sure. Also every item has card style actions associated with it, so your attacks/actions come straight from all these items and their mods. It's the best part of the gameplay and very fun though in later dungeons you get so much stuff it's harder to figure out what is really good.

 

Overall I like the game enough and feel it's a decent mix of dungeon crawler and survival game. These last dungeons are harder for more weak characters and my pace has slowed. I want to beat the game, but it's becoming more of a crawl then anything and I barely care about the story at all now. Still a very decent game that's not just a Darkest Dungeon feeling/looking clone. I'll give it a 7/10.

So, Kroger has/had Freschetta brand frozen pizza on sale for $3.99 a piece this past week (until end of day today).

 

Thought y'all'd like to see a picture that represents my freezer right now.

Holy crap!  I know we have hardcore pizza enthusiasts in here, but I can't imagine eating that much pizza in a year.

 

On a side note, is there anyone here who can use a 14-day Game Pass Ultimate trial code? It came with my new controller and it's only good for folks who haven't had a previous sub.

What percentage of those have pineapple on them?

If it's not 100%, you've got another grocery store run to make.

To be doubly clear... that's not my freezer. 

I got 5 cause it was cheap and I try not to go to the store often right now.  So might as well stock up.

Might've just been Hollywood "magic", but that pizza looks so good, I probably would've still eaten off that shingled roof.

It's one of those things that they've spoken of many times. They got a pizza, and expected to do many shots. And that was the first shot. So it's actually not Hollywood "magic" in this case lol. Pure luck.

Somebody's going to have to clue me in to the joke here. Is this a TV show where someone just threw a pizza onto a roof on purpose?

It's from Breaking Bad. It was a popular TV show from 2008-2013.
