Place was a wasteland in the Houston locations at least. Always was having stock issues and the stock in store kept shrinking and shrinking. I will miss it, but the writing has been on the wall for these locations anyway.

Yep, the two I used in houston area have been 80% empty for some time.  Last thing I bought from them was a 7600k.  For a while now I've been driving directly past 2 Frys to go to Microcenter across town.  I stopped taking them seriously once they started the "be one of the first to get a secret password" discount gimmick.

One of the last time I went was when they started price matching, finally.

 

So I go to price match something from Amazon to support B&M. They gave me a hard time, insisted on charging me for shipping or the equivalent of a Prime annual membership (for something that had free shipping on Amazon, and I didn't have Prime).

 

I walked out and price matched it at Best Buy.

On another note has anyone played Curse of the Dead Gods? Seems to be my type of game. I will likely do my less than 2 hour trial on Steam.

It's excellent. I got it on Xbox yesterday. If you liked that Skul game you were playing enough to finish it, you will more than likely love Curse. It is another hard one. It got a 9 on ign.

If I can manage to beat Skul fully only twice in almost 60 hours (I really got decent at it despite these horrible win totals), I'm sure I'll have a blast with it. Skul I'm done likely forever with. It's just unfair. I like hard games, but not ones where you blink and you lose like 1/4 of your life in one or two hits. I do like roguelite/like games, so I will try it for sure.

This has been bundled and on sale plenty before, but I feel the need to say, "If you are even remotely interested in tactics, you should check out Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun."

 

It's on sale on Steam right now for 90% off. It's $3.99. Three freaking ninety nine.

 

If the word "tactics" sounds a little dry, don't be put off. That's in there basically to give a little thoughtfulness to the stealth elements required to take on a rebellion in Edo-period Japan with a small team of assassins. It's a long and beautiful game that moves at your speed.

 

Easily one of my favorite games of the last ten years.

The only thing I ever bought from Fry's was a can opener. One of those electric ones that you place on top of the can and then it automatically does everything else. The best thing about the can opener was that it would create a smooth edge on the lid so you couldn't cut yourself on it. Word has it they also sold computer stuff and various high-end electronics. I can't confirm those rumors, I only ordered the can opener.

 

It broke a few years back, BTW.

Dragon Age 4 is going back to being a Single Player Game without Multiplayer.

 

Sources:

IGN - https://www.ign.com/...-no-multiplayer

Jason Schreier - https://twitter.com/...005940739743745

 

Info:

- DA4 is no longer a Live Service Game.

- DA4 is back to being a Single Player Game, after the success of Jedi: Fallen Order (from Respawn)...

- ...and also b/c Anthem failed as a Live Service & Multiplayer game.

- EA has given BioWare the greenlight to remove all Multiplayer & online "games as service" components of the game.

So after the last patch Valheim completely kills my fiber if I try to play multiplayer.  A few minutes of playing and I lose tv and internet and my modem/router restarts and after a couple minutes everything is back but if I try to play Valheim MP again, it dies within minutes.  Single player is fine.   So that is bad.  Found a few more people saying the same thing and some complaints of it eating a TON of bandwidth.

Sucks that it's going to be a similar case to Monster Hunter World (where the PC version didn't come out until much later), but at least they're being upfront about it again.

The best thing about the can opener was that it would create a smooth edge on the lid so you couldn't cut yourself on it that you would place it on the top of the can and then step back and watch it automatically move around and do its thing like the little magic can opener it is while you frantically clap your hands in joy and jump up and down. Word has it they also sold computer stuff and various high-end electronics. I can't confirm those rumors, I only ordered the can opener.

Might I suggest a nice multivitamin?

Neat. I still want a Switch eventually, but I don’t do enough MP to justify paying for it on console, so it’ll be nice to have the option on PC with Rise.

I didn’t watch the video but I feel justified in assuming the video maker’s opinions are bad and that he should feel bad.

Yeah, pretty obvious where that guy is located given his ratings.

I mean, there are just "dessert pizzas", which are literally any sweet pastry (yeasted or otherwise) shaped like a round pizza and cut into wedges like pizza. Which is like, do whatever you want with it, my concerns for pizza toppings do not extend to every single object which is vaguely pizza-like in geometry. 

 

The only thing that makes this not just a dessert pizza is the added touch of mozzarella cheese, which is definitely bit more bold, but mozzarella cheese on desert pastries is not totally unheard of. Kanafeh is a Lebanese dessert often made with mozzarella, and I've seen Cheesecakes that add mozzarella.

Here is my Curse of the Dead Gods mini review after beating it a few times including one of the 3 boss long temples. I think I'm close to being done with this game. It's most similar to Hades crossed with a souls game. The game begins with you just walking into a temple. There is close to no story. You have a stamina meter to use for 3 weapons, of which you can charge. The main and sub hand weapons take less stamina. Everything feels weighty and slow. It makes it very challenging, but also feel alright. It's not the fast paced action fest that Hades is. I do like the graphics and they remind me of Hades , as well as a little bit of Darkest Dungeon. There is a curse system in place where you usually get 20 curse points a room and at every increment of 100 you get a new curse. There are five levels of curses, with the last being terrible and usually losing health every few seconds to 1 HP. This is a very flawed, but decent game. The challenge can get extreme (I can't even get close to beating the 3rd snake dungeon boss), and 1 mistake can cost you a lot of health. All this dungeon crawling is done in fighting arenas against enemies which can be a pain when you have 5 or 6 enemies on you. It's hard to predict the attacks then. There is a clunky dodging system, as well as an extremely precise parrying system. You need to master both or fail. I played this for a bit over 27 hours, and have unlocked most of the weapons and god blessings. These god blessings are passive and chosen before you enter a dungeon compared to getting them in game in Hades. Frankly some of the rooms in the temples feel overly long and boring. It takes a while to do the full 3 course dungeon. I do like that there are traps everywhere, so you can never be calm. It just feels like a good game, but may be a bit too punishing, and a bit bland with no story whatsoever. I think it's still worth a 6.5/10 trending toward 7, but likely is better for a good sale or bundles. Frustrating, slow at times and repetitive in scenery and gameplay sometimes as well, leads to a decent game overall. Hades is highly recommended over it. It's frustrating, which is why I'm likely slowing my time down with it.

I tried the Outriders demo this weekend... What I read was mostly positive but I didn't think it would really grab me but it did.

Gameplay was fun, the voice work was really surprising strong as was the story. Hoping I can find a better deal on it before launch. So far the best I've seen is 10% off.

Anyhow, demo is obviously free so I recommend trying it out.
