    What are you playing right now?

    Bought an Oculus Quest 2 back in February, and I'm loving Room VR. Still playing a heavily-modded (non-VR) Skyrim of course, and the Enderal "conversion." The Steam Summer Sale is happening right now, so I bout a bunch of stuff that I don't have time to play...but I'm really looking forward to...

    Is it time to talk about coronavirus?

    I can't speak for other places, but the company I work at does everything in its power to keep prices as low as we can. We've had relationships with many of these suppliers for well over 30 years. They won't gouge us. Curious: how big is the package of bacon you mentioned?

    Is it time to talk about coronavirus?

    I work at a meat company in NJ (bookkeeping and IT). Prices are going through the roof at the moment. I live in the same building as my parents. My mom has a very compromised immune system, so my sisters and I are extra, extra, extra careful around my house. I haven't taken public...

    What are you playing right now?

    Enjoying Grim Dawn right now. I get a kick out of reading forums and seeing YouTube videos of GD "veterans" listing what you need to do to get the "best build" for your character. I just maxed out her fire abilities and enjoy watching her kill everything around her with fire... Still need to...

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    I'm a Larson fan, too, and I consider her casting as CM as brilliant as them getting Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man. Plus there's the added bonus of her in skintight rubber... :D

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Yeah, it's been quite some time since this topic had any new posts, but I just had to... I played the PC version of Skyrim from its release back in 2011 until some time in 2014, when I migrated to a new PC, and the game got kind of wonky when I ported it over to the new box. I had logged 276...

    Wish me luck...

    I'm dog person... I'm known to do a bit of gaming, and there are some RPGs that are quite taxing on a system (Witcher III and a heavily modded Skyrim spring to mind). The fact that it's great for everyday tasks is gravy...

    Wish me luck...

    I do have a few pics of the internals that I'll post here when I get a chance. I may have overstated how much money I saved by building my own. I was probably factoring in the Dell extended service plan (among other things). Maybe it was more of a $500 savings, but I'm still pretty darn happy...

    Wish me luck...

    Well, it's up and running, and it was well worth the effort. I now have a big, powerful rig that cost at least $1,500 less than the comparable Alienware I was looking at. I'd post a pic, but it's just a big black box.

    Wish me luck...

    Still working on it. I work really long hours, so I've only had an hour or two each night to work on it. Whoever said "it's just like assembling Lego" is lying. There are boxes, plastic envelopes, screws, cables, you name it, strewn all over the dining room table and my desk. It's a disaster...

    VR discussion: Oculus Rift, Vive, Morpheus and more!

    I'm still trying to find someplace to "experience" this whole VR "thing." I still have no idea what it's like...

    What are you playing right now?

    Witcher 3 and Skyrim are neck and neck for the greatest RPGs of all time. There are moments in Witcher 3 that stand with the best fiction I've read... I started Dragon Quest XI (may as well put the PS4 I got for Christmas two years ago to good use), and it's a hoot, although I'm already...

    Wish me luck...

    After 25 years as a PC owner (first was an IBM 486, most recent an Alienware Aurora R5), I've decided it's high time that I built my own. It's a little on the "high end" side, and rest assured that I do NOT have "deep pockets," I just like to get three or four years where my PC can run whatever...
