If you bought the October 2016 Monthly Bundle, you should now have a Steam key for Fidel Dungeon Rescue on your Keys page.

Who's ready for the Spectrum/Comcast/Infinity/Broadband loot boxes?  You get a 1:100000000 chance of getting a fiber optic link/server/and 10000Gbps switch installed in your house for free!  (you have a 50:1 chance of getting  1Mbps)  These odds thanks to Chinese law requiring basic odds information.

Just to show how inflated the prices are currently, the same set of 16GB RAM (2x8GB) I bought during BF for $137.99 is around $210 right now, so even with the inflated prices this year, the prices currently are still insane.

The 2x8 GB that I bought in 2016 for $99 is 213 bucks today... It's only DDR3.

I feel I've invested poorly with my 401K. I should have been buying RAM.

According to Amazon's page for the same tower: "The board supports 32gb (Lies, see below) but only has two slots on it. It comes stock with 2 x 4gb sticks" also it uses DDR4-2400 (PC4-17000).

 

As noted, RAM is currently ridiculously expensive (why is that?  I haven't been keeping up) and two 8GB sticks would run you nearly $200.  Yowsers.

 

Edit: Supposedly DDR4 chips are expensive now because they're being used in mobile devices and smart phones so supply is low due to everything that beeps and has a screen using them.

 

Extra Edit: The system in question has the Odense2-K motherboard which states a memory limit of 16GB.  It also says you can use 4GB+8GB to hit 12GB although most people upgrade in matched pairs.  If you did decide to get a single 8GB stick, make sure it matches the 4GB in specifications (and I would attempt to use the same manufacturer).  Crucial.com does a scan that tells you exactly what you've got for memory which should help.

Got it on clearance for $200!

Man, I read that and thought "You poor sumbitch" assuming he got some system barely more powerful than a mid-range cell phone but that's a sweet damn deal for two hundred bucks.  I'd have been tempted to buy that for $200 just on principle.

Meh = I'd be fine with getting it in a bundle but it's nothing I would purchase separately.

So basically, "meh" is your rating for 98% of the games you play then, right?

Great deal considering the card would cost that alone. Closest Walmart has them for $499 but it does show 19 in stock so maybe after the holidays.

Put about ten hours into Homefront: Revolution.  It's meh.  With some more effort it could have been a really good game but they went with copy-paste Ubisoft formula.

I guess "meh" is good in Mooby standards if it lasted you 10 hours

The HF:R DLC is all pretty lame.  Three short linear missions.  If you're buying the complete version for a buck or two more then why not but it's not worth worrying about otherwise.

Off topic as well:

Garage Band is a great music making app, but only available for iOS.  Does anybody have experience with kindle apps that are even close.  For instance, has anyone used PocketBand or EasyBand on kindles?

 

Re: Negan -  I think that the governor was a better written part and you could argue better acted.  I like having a strong character opposite the main character/group so I can appreciate Negan.  I agree with Blade about the Negan character development - can be fleshed out, but in general sort of a meh for most of the time on screen.

 

The TV version of TWD has veered from the written version.  You either like to see another interpretation/iteration or not.  I like the premise of watching how people react post traumatic event and see if the people such as Carol change/develop.  While there are some parts of TWD that have grown stale, I would say that the story telling is different now than before.  How many more seasons do we have still have I do not know after they resolve the Negan chapter.  

 

On topic:

I forgot what humble bundle it was, but I liked it when I was able to purchase a humble bundle through Steam.

I wish TWD had a flashback where I saw what pizza Negan ate and the shoes he wore before the zombie apocalypse.

Look, I'm sure all this TV discussion is fascinating, but can we try to get back on topic? I don't think I've seen anyone in this thread talking about pizza or shoes in over 48 hours, this is getting ridiculous.

I don't know if it's the directing or Jeffrey Dean Morgan doing a bad job as the actor... but, yeah, Negan is so scene-chewingly bad.  I hate the way he postures in these jaunty, angular positions.  Completely rigid and then tilts back for effect.  It looks like he's got a stick up his ass going all the way through his spine.

I don't think he's a bad actor, nor that the character is that bad. It's just been a boring, directionless show cashing in on the franchise for the past few seasons. We've only had basically two scenes where Negan's character has developed in any way, both happening inside trailers. Every other time we see Negan, he's playing this surly asshole, and it gets boring. The opening to this season was ungodly awful, and there are only so many times you can close up on people's faces to eke out an extra minute of run-time. The entire setting is being milked dry with bad writing and directing.

 

Remember The Governor? That was a villain done right for TWD. They didn't make him as good as his literary version, but he still owned his scenes and was fun to hate.
