  1. Banner Saga 2 - Now with Dysentery!

    Started this game yesterday, and I continue to love everything about this game. I appreciate that they are adding some interesting mechanics and obstacles in battle and that the breakdown of towns folk vs soldiers will actually matter. I'm interested to see where the story goes, I lost my BS1 save so hopefully not too many choices ended up mattering too much.
  2. I'd be keen on checking out Dungeon World at some point!
  3. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I bought a 200 gb SD card, I'm all in on Digital.
  4. Painting tabletop miniatures

    very nice!
  5. Rainbow Six: Siege

    Hit me up! I'll probably not be on tonight, but should be on Thursday.
  6. Rainbow Six: Siege

    Is anyone still playing this? I just picked it up on PC, sort of bummed because I need to grind to level 20 to join my friends in ranked. I've been playing PUBG a lot recently and going back to a faster game seems crazy. Enjoying my time with the Operatives.
  7. I thought Jeff killed it during the E3 night shows, I could not imagine taking 3-5 totally different people and interviewing them all at once and keeping it flowing and being entertaining. Janina was great! Seeing someone so human kind of be the face for the game makes more interested in it, hah.

    I was going to get a second FC30, but man those yellow ones do look very nice....
  9. Inside

    I'm glad I'm not the only person that couldn't play it in big chunks - there is one enemy in the game that really creeps me out hah.
  10. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    Man, those are some snazzy controllers, looks like a pretty interesting alternative to the $70 pro controller! Picking up Zelda again, I need to finish up with one dungeon and then on to Gannon, looking forward to wrapping it up. I also beat Binding of Isaac for the first time yesterday on the train, that remains to be a weird game.
  11. Non-video games

    Anyone playing anything recently? I picked up 7 Wonders: Duel which ahs been nice to break open, i also picked up the X-Wings Miniature game core sets to test out, looks interesting!
  12. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    Oh man, it'll be my first Monster Hunter game - pretty excited!

    Yeah, I don't know to me it sounds like the arrogance is on the other foot here, I think it's kind of arrogant of the fan base to think their individual critiques or criticisms should be addressed by the boys. I'm sure they get criticism directed at them literally all the time via Twitter, I don't blame them for getting defensive at times. I feel like there is a weird assumption that everyone creating content for the internet should be wholly receptive of criticism/feedback all the time. I don't think it's arrogant if Katy Perry doesn't respond to my last 100 tweets critiquing her latest single, why would I assume MBMBaM would be any different? The fact is they probably aren't super well equipped to handle their own popularity. I think part of the reason they are so popular is that they all wear their hearts on their sleeve which probably makes the popularity and criticism via social media pretty hard to deal with. I don't think your criticisms are wholly off-base, they obviously come from someone who enjoys their content for the most part, but I'm not sure it's on them to try to please the world. I don't think TAZ is my thing anymore, but I wouldn't say it's arrogant for Griffin to continue what he is doing since there are obviously a ton of people that enjoy it. I don't think it's arrogant of Justin to tell the world how proud he is of his little brothers hard work, whether or not I agree with it.

    Congrats!

    I don't follow all of their stuff, but I would probably argue that most content creationtm is self-indulgent and it's usually made better for it because you generally want people creating content their passionate about (see Idle Thumbs and Important If True). I can totally see arrogance being a driving force behind something @Patrick R describes, because I'm sure you get to a certain point and think "why should I work on this joke/this delivery when I know I'll hit it out of the park and people will love it?" I'm all about creators getting buck wild about things they are into because at the end of the day it's up to the audience to decide if it's for them or not.
  16. Endorsements from Thumbs Readers

    Yeah, that's my current predicament. There is a lot of baking I'd love to do, but I'm hesitant to spend the $250 for a stand mixer. @root your pretzels look dope!
  17. It's kind of awesome how much the dynamic changes when going from solo -> a group. I spent ~5 hours with a random guy on my friends list on Saturday and had a super awesome time, I am a bad duo player though. I am way more brash when I know I have a partner but when I am playing solo I rarely fire my gun unless I know it will be a kill and I'll be able to escape. Hell, in the solo game I won I only killed 3 people. I think I've only killed ~12 people over 6 or so hours because i rarely fire my gun, I'd rather be sneaky and work on my positioning so if it comes to a gun fight I'll have an upper hand.

    You're the devil. Learning how easy and cheap it is to make fresh, awesome bread has been very difficult for me and my carb intake, hah!
  19. Morrowind Revisited (13 years)

    Oh god, I remember searching for that damn thing for hours and never finding it. I am so tempted to reinstall it and boot it up for nostalgia's sake. That game really takes me back to a very specific time and place in my life.

    I love that somewhere someone gets to write off $500 for 'Fushigi Art Patronage' as a work expense.

    Man, I'd love just a button I could hit to Spam all of my Mario Kart playing friends that I have a room open and looking for players, very frustrating its so bare bones. Otherwise the actual online functionality has been pretty good for me, I've read reports of disconnects from a lot of people though. Also, I agree about the uncomfortableness of the Joy Cons. I bought a 2 pack of the joy-con wheels hoping that would ease our cramping hands, but it seems like the shoulder button paddles on all of those things are terrible so it takes a lot of force to actually use the shoulder buttons. I have huge hands and find the joy-cons to be OK, but my wife has tiny hands and she really gets uncomfortable after a few races weirdly enough. I might actually just pick up an elite controller for her to play with since she's enjoying herself quite a bit.
