  1. The McElroy Family of Products

    Hm, I'm not sure if their choice of system would really change the end product, Critical Role seems to make due in the D&D framework and makes a (generally) engaging product. It sounds like Clint wants to do something with super heroes next which sounds interesting. I think TAZ at the beginning for me felt like the total inverse of of FaaT, but I think in the last few arcs has been trying to mold itself into something resembling FaaT which only works if everyone at the table buys into this world and self-serious lore. I happen to agree with the feedback given, but I often feel like criticizing role playing feels too much like saying "Your Fun is Wrong". If Griffin is having a good time, and his players are having a good time I don't really see a problem. It might not be for us, but as long as the people involved with it directly are having fun I can't really fault them.

    I dono as long as I am entertained I am happy, putting any RPG storyline under a microscope seems like a road to madness. I do not envy someone trying to handle DMing their first game, while trying to rein in his players, and trying to entertain their giant following. I can definitely see that, I've bounced off it a few times myself!
  3. The McElroy Family of Products

    I think they've touched on that before and it's because of how they want the show to fit in the (relatively) short format and still be fairly punchy. It should be interesting to see if they keep going down the rail-road-y path or open things up when they start a new campaign with a new DM. I think I share your sentiment @James , I bounce off a lot of the lore heavy aspects. I understand people LOVE that part of the show though, I have met several people who have fallen in love with TAZ outside of the McElroy bubble which is odd.

    Positive vibes your way Bjorn, that sounds rough.
  5. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    Totally agree on all of these things, I'd love a way to actually turn off the joycons as well; they have a habbit of being activated via button pressed while in a case which is annoying. I've had a lot of fun with this console in my commute, I'm sure I look like an idiot but pulling out the Switch on the train and blasting through a Shrine in Zelda, or getting in a run or two of Binding of Isaac has been great. Speaking of Isaac - I think it's a pretty sweet port, and I actually love the four face buttons for shooting and using the left stick for movement. I bounced off the game when I bought it on steam years ago, but I've had a few really good runs on the Switch and I think I'm starting to 'get' it. Also Neo Turf Masters is totally worth the $8, i've had a really awesome time playing against my wife. I wish they zoomed in the course minimap when getting closer to the hole as it is a little hard to see if I'm actually aiming at it at that resolution. I think it's a super charming package, absolutely love the music in that game. If you have ever had the hankering for a solid, basic golf game - grab it!
  6. So wife update: She has fallen off the game, the controls were too hard of a thing to overcome and shes put it down, we still are playing it together, just me at the helm though. I may actually introduce her to Persona 5 next week, I think if she can get over the anime aspect of it she'd really enjoy the turn based combat and the relationship building.
  7. Yeah the weapon fragility kind of becomes less of a problem when you unlock ok a few weapon slots as well. Thank god for that, I found a mop that I refuse to put down so it was nice getting an extra slot for that. There is something really doofy about the Hero of Time running around with a mop on his back.
  8. I still wonder this, I have a preoroder for the ps3 copy but I'm a little nervous.
  9. The Next President

    This goes on the floor today, it sounds unpopular but I'm pretty jaded at this point. I worry for the 24 million Americans who are going to be in serious trouble (not to mention the rest of us who are absolutely going to be paying for it).
  10. So I finished my first dungeon today, only 30 hours in - I'm speed running this thing.
  11. Movie/TV recommendations

    We have pretty similar thoughts on this - I think the whole trans punchline was fucking gross.I don't think I'm going to watch any of the other specials, I had a handful of chuckles but man this first special left a pretty bad taste in my mouth. I think a lot of the issue is that most of his LGBTQ material is lazy and just plays on stereotypes (not in any sort of clever way) and obviously highlight some personal bigotry.
  12. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    The one I bought on Amazon was actually a 2 pack for ~$10 shipped, I royally screwed up the first two because I am a dummy. Also I agree with the consensus that Binding of Isaac is gross, I have a few friends who love it though so thought this would be a neat thing to play on my daily commute, Also, heck yes - looking forward to playing Splatoon for the first time (I didn't have a Wii-U).
  13. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    So third time was the charm for the tempered glass protector. I have two motes of dust on the bezel but 0 bubbles so I'm happy, hah. I picked up World of Goo and Binding of Isaac which are good. I'm still trying to figure out Boi, but it seems to be a good port.
  14. Mass Effect Andromeda - Thumb Drive Engaged!

    I think this is the most daming critque a new Mass Effect could probably have thrown against it. After playing a bit, and seeing some of the single player i think I'm probably going to wait for a sale as well. Maybe i'll pick up my Mass Effect 2 run I was doing prior to Andomeda's release.
  15. Mass Effect Andromeda - Thumb Drive Engaged!

    Man, I've had nothing but terrible luck in the MP. 1st match - We lose the host instantly, game crashes 2nd match - I load into the match but no one else does so I get creamed 3rd match - I load in, the mission hasn't started yet, all my team mates arent moving. Host drops, load back in, same thing is happening. Host drops again and the it crashes. Of course I used consumables on each of those, so I've kind of just lost everything. Not a huge deal, but this kind of stinks. EDIT: I rebooted and played a few matches with Vulpes which was fun. I don't know if my 2500k is up to the job of hosting matches which is a bummer.
  16. Mass Effect Andromeda - Thumb Drive Engaged!

    Great posts folks! I'm of pretty similar mind as you, and after playing a bit more I'm more optimistic about the game. In regards to the faces, I had seen some chatter online suggest that if you create a custom Ryder the animation is a little bit better. I don't know if it is just me getting used to the poor animation, but it did seem a little bit less abrasive with my custom lady Ryder. Some of the stuff is just god awful still, it feels weird that we are still watching cut-scenes where your characters eyelids are clipping through there eyes, etc. I'm not thrilled about a new race of bad guys, but I am kind of excited to go out and meet some new species and put some hours exploring a new galaxy.
  17. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I picked up Metal Slug on a whim, was hoping to play some with some buddies this weekend. Let me know how KoF is!
  18. Mass Effect Andromeda - Thumb Drive Engaged!

    So I jumped into one multiplayer game last night after doing a short tutorial and the game crashed. did not realize it was running in the background so it totally sat there in the background for 3 hours running so I'm down to ~6.5 hours. Oh man, you nailed my thoughts on Lady Ryder - I was a total fem shep kind of guy but I am not sure if I can spend my Mass Effect expeience looking at the dumb expression she is constantly making.
  19. Pen and Paper and Roll20.net Games

    Anyone currently running anything?

    Yep, I've heard the bathroom thing is a pretty good trick. I've just ordered another set and will try again.
  22. Man, the level of ire Jim Sterling is getting from Zelda fans for his 7/10 review score is a bit insane.
  23. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    Man, my installation broke bad. Nothing super major, but just could not get either one bubble free - pretty annoying.
  24. Life

    As a child of someone with a lifelong crippling addiction problem it's a very hard thing to love someone in that state, sorry you have to go through that. While generally do think the adage of "not until they're ready" is a good rule of thumb -if you think it might lead to some actually crippling life changes maybe try to loop in family. It's hard, and it never feels like there is a "right" answer.
  25. I stumbled upon this the other night - it was great.
