Although I bought Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition last Saturday on GOG.com, I just noticed this little gem of information when I looked at the listing.

 

When you buy this game, The Elder Scrolls: Arena and The Elder Scrolls Chapter II: Daggerfall will be added to your GOG.com account for free!

Who is Johnny Turbo, and why does he have an iron grip on classic arcade titles?

From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia...ki/Johnny_Turbo

 

Johnny Turbo is a superhero character created to advertise the Turbo Duo, a hybrid of the Turbografx-16 console and its add-on, the TurboGrafx CD, in North America.  The character was conceived by Turbo Technologies, Inc. (a venture of NEC and Hudson Soft) as a mascot of the console.

Daily Cheevo for 50 pts seems to be broken again. Doesn't ever last long does it?

Worked me for immediately when I unlocked an achievement in Yoku's Express around 11 p.m. last night.  I'm hoping it will give me another 50 points when everything resets at 6 a.m.  Wish me luck.

 

Edit: the same achievement just gave me another 50 points at 5:47 a.m.  Now that's what I call a chain combo!  :applause:

I just noticed that I already had The Witcher III: Complete Edition installed (I purchased it years ago) and not The Witcher III, so I have to reinstall a game that I already had installed just to get the 12 kills for the Game Pass quest.  That's completely idiotic.

So there's probably a workaround with what you're wanting to do.  But here's what I would do:
Buy a $25 256gb sata 2.5" ssd.  Avoid anything that says QLC.  Install to system.
Turn a cheap flash drive into a bootable USB win10 install disk (pretty easy process just look it up).
Enter bios or boot menu, force a boot to USB.  Fresh new install of win10 on the ssd (not upgrade).
Reformat 1tb hdd to be empty storage space.
Problems solved.  Enjoy not having wasted any time with Win8 or a mechanical drive.

As others have stated, I also would either stay with integrated graphics or add something that would let you play anything in your library, like this)

I appreciate it, buddy.  I will continue working on this project, but I won't keep clogging up the thread with my questions lest we miss any deals. 

 

In other news, my frustration lead me to buy a $40 Asus Tinkerboard this morning. 

 

Since I don't have a wife, I find that I'm just not frustrated enough these days, so I turn to "do-it-yourself" technology projects when I want to upset myself.
