It surprises me a little the way that people don't maintain certain standards of personal grooming during lockdown. I heard a reporter say on a podcast yesterday that she put a sticky note over her phone camera so people couldn't see her when she asked a question during a Zoom press conference and this morning I heard a congressman say that a TV appearance last night was the excuse he needed to shave for the first time in four days. Sure, other people may not see you, but you should have a modicum of self-respect. . . .


I suspect she didn't want to put on makeup and all that... which is understandable.

As for not shaving... It's nearly playoff beard season so Fuck that shit. :lol:

Microsoft announces a new version of DX12, called DX12 Ultimate with all kinds of benefits to performance for Ray-Tracing -

How about making it stable? All the games I play (granted not that many) I still use DX11 because the games crash too often with 12.

Sometimes I wonder why I play 'new' games when my time could be better spent just replaying the Mass Effect Trilogy...

That's the most inflammatory comment in this thread this morning, my friend.  Congrats!  (Honestly, I wish I could replay it... but the ending.  Even the improved ending.  I just cannot get the taste out of my mouth.)

 

 

The death rate is inflated due to the lack of testing. As testing catches up and more cases are confirmed the death rate will go down. It's just the most severe cases that require hospitalization and ventilators are being confirmed and those who only have the mild symptoms and think it's simply allergies or a cold aren't going to the doctor or in need of hospitalization so they aren't being tested. 

 

While I don't disagree.  I think we have far more cases than has been diagnosed (because it is so contagious) I wouldn't be so dismissive of it.  If enough cases happen at once then those who could live if they just had a ventilator will die because their isn't any for them to use.

Another book/novel bundle and not a damn name I recognize...  I know I'm a homer but I feel like their Warhammer 40K/Fantasy our their only novel bundles worth a damn.

So Borderlands 3 is on Steam now....  50% off day 1, anyone going to jump on it?  (I doubt I will with Div 2 and PoE having new content.)

You can buy a desktop for the price of three of those laptops.

But full sized keyboards make his paws look small.

Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest is one of the best NES games of all time.  It was the first true 'vania' in the 'Metroidvania' definition.  Casltlevania 1 was stage based whereas Simon's Quest was open world.

Its actually the first game reviewed by AVGN... but you're right. It's not a bad game it was just ahead of it's time.

If it ain't that - yeah, hope Chrono can fix things w/ that support ticket. Good luck.

Chrono has always been amazing to me when it comes to customer service.  I would be shocked if they had issues.

The turret seemed even better than I remembered it being but it had been awhile since I played, 336 days according to the game's menu screen and I'm only level 7. I'll probably pick up the expansion when they put it on sale in a few months unless I get hooked like I did in Div1. I just completely got sidetracked last year and had no interest in Div2, especially when I read about that load time bug that lasted a few weeks.

A lot of people ignore the turret, its damage isn't the greatest, but it does a good job of distracting enemies.

Considering that the intent was to dumb this down for the "Math is hard..." people, how much they fucked up everyone's build is kind of funny.  You'd THINK that stuff would retain roughly the same function as before but instead they just changed gear sets and weapon talents and all that seemingly at random.

 

The exotic holster is now literally the worst holster for a pistol build because it has one talent and that "charges" your pistol as you don't use it.  'The hell, guys?

I didn't look at much but I can only imagine that this simplifying everything is going to hurt the game in the long term...  The changes I read about the DZ seem horrible.  All those perfect skills from unique gold items are gone.  All and all I think I'll be happy enough with a build in a few days and I'll be back to Path of Exile.

 

I'm a 25% though the expansion...  It honestly didn't feel like it took long to get there.  I spent a fair amount of time doing side stuff in my first area to liberate it completely.

 

Edit: Oh from what I've read online skill builds are completely destroyed now.  (I just use a turret/health and shoot shit in the face so I'm not a go too expert on stuff.

I figured TrumpCat would be an XFL fan.

TrumpCat is first class or not at all.
