    https://store.steampowered.com/app/894940/Littlewood/ I'm not playing, but watching, something called Littlewood. The Nintendo-type graphics kind of are a turn off for me, but the concept is intriguing; the story's antagonist is already defeated, leaving you to rebuild a town. So, building without any mobs or conflict. I don't have anything quite like that; doesn't mean I'd necessarily like it, but it's interesting enough to me to merit watching.

    I also saw the new Mortal Kombat, 11, I think it is. I was going to pass on that, until I saw how much you can customize armor and weapons. Mortal Kombat has some sick armor! I remember playing the very first one in the arcade; you had the option of guy in yellow costume or guy in blue. Now, ........ wow! That's why I love Skyrim and Fallout 4 so much; modders pump out so much sick armor. In F4, I have Tron Legacy armor, over 100 sets of armor from like every Halo game, a set from Cyberpunk 2077. What can I say, I'm a sucker for wicked armor
  3. As a child, I wasn't allowed candy. So, I've gone nearly 40 years without experiencing Pop Rocks. We got a big bag of them in Myrtle Beach last week. So, I was sitting here ten minutes ago or so, thinking "everyone knows what Mentos does in diet Coke, I wonder what Pop Rocks will do in a small bottle of Pepsi?" I wasn't expecting a soda geyser, but I was hoping for something cool. But all it did, other than the normal popping you get in your mouth, was steal the carbonation right out of the Pepsi. How very underwhelming! However, I discovered a new flavor of Pepsi that I think should be marketed: watermelon. They just released lime, mixed berry, and mango for Pepsi, why not watermelon, too?

    Patiently waiting for Doom Eternal: http://store.steampowered.com/app/782330/ Let's see if I did this correctly, I haven't posted a link in quite a while. Gotta go to a conference, I'll fix when I get back if I messed it up.

    Need a new (or old) game

    Wish I could help, but the only thing I play these days is Katamari Damacy Reroll and Embark.

    I've had Flammkuchen, but not in Germany, I had it in Alsace, France. I like pizza, but I don't think I can write up a glorification/condemnation for it. I don't think I have a favorite food period: I eat what locals are eating. Sometimes, that's a good thing, like, when I discovered cuy in Ecuador. Other times, though.... well, lets just say that I think chiguire must be an acquired taste.

    Question Game

    1) Favorite Class? Inquisitor - He's dark - I love Area of Effect spells, and Clustering Maelstrom is my favorite. - because of the quests involving his daughter, he's the only one that feels like he gas roots in Ancaria (to me) - the white standard "Magic" set reminds me of a piece of lace onyx that I own, which is my favorite of all my minerals 2) Length of time played? Since early October of 2008 3) Favorite thing? It never gets old for me. In most games like this that I have, I eventually run out of options. Now, sometimes, that takes a year or two, but it happens. Eventually, I run out of weapon arts/weapon/armor combos; I've exhausted everything I can think of and it goes into my "completed" category. It took years, especially with our mod team cranking out new weapons and armor and whatnot, but I got there with Sacred 2. I have so much time in Ancaria that there should be "Gilberticus was here" carved into the outhouse walls. And that's normally when I close the book on games. Sacred 2 does go uninstalled on my computer, because I can't have too many games installed without suffering lag. But it never stays uninstalled; I'm like the stubborn stray that you made the mistake of feeding too many times, now it's skylarking on your porch. You might not see it for small chunks of times, but you can rest assured that it's eventually coming back. 4) Recommended class? High Elf shopper and Shadow Warrior blacksmith. If you get a proper shopping and smithing network going, any class can feel bad ass. 5) Blind Guardian fan? No. Not that there's anything wrong with that band, but it doesn't fit in with my life. - Sometimes, I like to reflect on my life, with a glass of Scotch or 19 Crimes - reflecting on my life in general : Skynyrd - reflecting on my teen years: Alice in Chains, Sponge, Belinda Carlisle, Tool - Sometimes, I have quality alone time with Mrs Gilberticus: Journey, U2, Simon and Garfunkel, Richard Marx, Pat Benatar - Sometimes, I have a few beers with friends/fellow veterans: Motley Crue, - Sometimes, I need to calm down (I deal with the public ALL day long): Pink Floyd - Sometimes, I like to pull out my guitar and rock/thrash: Motley Crue, Deftones, Pantera, Sepultura, Coal Chamber, Meshuggah

    Grim Dawn 2nd Expansion Announced

    Grim Dawn is single figure price range in your country? Hmm, it isn't here, I see Grim Dawn for $24.99, and then a package that includes all DLC for 48.96. But that $48.96 doesn't include the base game. Even if I weed out the fluff items like Crucible and the loyalist upgrade, Grim Dawn plus Ashes of Malmouth and Forgotten Gods would run me over $60. That, to me, isn't worth it, but I wasn't as impressed with Grim Dawn as others are. But that's just me. If I look at it objectively, $60 for a game plus two DLC isn't that bad of a price. However, I sometimes have crappy impulse control.

    How’s your day going?

    Sorry for late response. Gogo, a friend bought tickets and couldn't go. I can't go anyway, it'd be foolish to bring a four year old to a place like that. Aside from that, I'm kind of torn as far as whether or not I'd go.

    Grim Dawn 2nd Expansion Announced

    Personally, I'd wait, especially if you're buying it from Steam. I don't know how many times I've bought expansions for games like this the second they hit the store, then about a half year or so later, I see a bundle deal that has the base game AND all expansions cheaper than what I bought the base game for.

    Pillars of Eternity

    This is a great game that I'm majorly enjoying. However, I'm about to type words that I never thought I'd be clacking on my keyboard: I need to take a break from quests and armor and RPGs. I'm in the mood to shred stuff up, I think I'm going to buy the DOOM game that came out a few years ago.

    How’s your day going?

    I was offered a free trip to tour Chernobyl. Besides a few video games and movies, I'm fairly ignorant as to how dangerous that place still is. I looked at a variety of tour sites. One blurb said "radiation levels in most areas are low enough that visitors can safely spend a day or two in the exclusion zone with less exposure to radiation than on a transatlantic flight". Ok. But dude, Chernobyl is a nuclear freaking disaster zone. "thousands of construction workers, support staff and engineers rotating in and out of the now-defunct plant to ensure its radioactive contents don’t seep further into the land and air." Cool, but that doesn't make me feel much safer."Be warned, wear long sleeves and long pants, and don’t touch or sit on anything (radioactivity collects on the ground). Note that visitors need to pass through a final radiation screening before leaving the exclusion zone. If your pants register high levels of radioactivity you can leave, but your pants can’t". And then some dingy journalist says blah blah blah, had to carry a geiger counter blah blah, could only stay at the abandoned hospital for a tiny time because the winds picked up blah blah" but under the next paragraph, it shows a picture of her holding what's supposedly a stray dog that she found haphazardly milling around. Naw, man, that's conflicting info. Too much conflicting info. "It's safe enough that 40,000 each year visit"....... nope, you can live out your Fallout: New Vegas and Commonwealth fantasies, my butt's staying on the beach this summer, watching a few dolphin shows, and going to a few gem stores, where I don't have to worry about whether or not my pants will be too radioactive to come home with me.

    Pillars of Eternity

    The first time, I rolled a human mercenary. I'm not sure of the specifics, because I didn't pay attention. I'm not used to games where point allocation really matters much. I steamrolled through on sheer blind luck until the drake on the fifth level of Od Nua totally handed me my butt. This time, I rolled a Coastal Aumaua Paladin merchant. Now that I know better, I'm going to pay closer attention. The last time, I sold every single piece of loot I found so I could upgrade my stronghold. Long story short, I was a complete and total dingus the first time around. Now that I'm actually paying attention, I love the game even more. Next time around, I think I'm going with the Godlike race, for the sheer fact that horned races are always fun for me to play. I do have both parts of White March. The steward of Caed Nua never notified me, though, probably because she knew I was playing like a moron. I think she'll forgive me, though; I'd imagine being the soul of a dying woman bound to a marble throne would require a decent amount of patience.
