  • @GnomeQueen said: @primesuspect said: The Ducky Channel keyboards are built like fucking tanks. I throw a dust cover on mine every night and it still works and looks like new. I should have never given away that Ducky …
  • Captain Marvel subverted expectations in a grand way. I thought it was one of the most creative origin stories they have ever done. Let's face it, the character intro origin stories have been a bit formulaic. Hell Iron Man and Dr. Strange are pre…
  • I have the previous generation of this motherboard. Cheap and decent. I even find the motherboard audio solution to be acceptable if you are driving a fairly efficient set of headphones / headset. Had some issues really early on but with bios revisi…
  • @CB I'm finding Apex to be a similar experience. I know I can play a shooter, I'm a pretty decent Overwatch player. I just think I have difficulty with the slow burn of these types of games. The longer a match drags out the more my attention span dr…
  • @AlexDeGruven said: Oldest and I started in on Apex Legends yesterday. It's a lot of fun. Takes a lot of elements from Fortnite, Overwatch, and classic deathmatch games. I'm utter trash at it so far, but I'm enjoying it. I never pla…
  • @Kwitko said: Today I'll highlight a band I'm rather fond of: Morphine. > I love Morphine, been awhile since I've listened to their stuff. As a three piece with just a two string slide bass, sax and drums, it's a funky sound you don't …
  • The Street Fighter 30th anniversary collection is incredible. It's a no brainer purchase for 30 bucks. However they emulated the arcade ROM's they did it spot on and have gotten the image to scale fantastic to modern televisions. I'm enjoying it. I'…
  • I have not gotten around to it yet but I picked up a copy of the Street Fighter 30th anniversary collection for the PS4. I'm actually thinking about building a cabinet around playing that title alone. For now I'm going to grab my fight pad tonight a…
  • @RADA said: I did a full ketogenic program last Feb to May. I lost 51.3 pounds during that time frame.! After that, I kept to it on and off. I gained about 14 pounds since then. I've jumped back on a full keto program…
  • The potential for twists and insane comic book plot fun in the upcoming MCU films is driving me mad. You have shape shifting Skrulls, who knows if one has been lurking as a double agent this entire time, you have time stones and the quantum realm, a…
  • @Kwitko said: I've been playing Lego The Hobbit. And lately I've been going through my MAME collection playing games that are older than half of Icrontic's members. Maybe even 75% of them. I have been on a major retro kick lately. Also a …
  • Like @Tushon - I see the SSD as a perfect opportunity to clean install Windows. A clone of the old drive may be effective, but without seeing the install I can't tell how messy it is. Installing clean, going through the trouble of figuring out what …
  • @GnomeQueen said: I've officially taken a month off! This is an extremely small accomplishment, but since that month covered Halloween, a three day weekend, and the midterm elections, I think I did okay. I'll likely have some wine tomorrow for Th…
  • I am so sorry for your grief, I can't imagine. My wife has been treated for a less aggressive cancer, there is nothing right about cancer, it is horrible. Cathy was beautiful. I went back and read one of your old posts, you said she was a teacher…
  • With Stan Lee's passing I started to ponder his legacy. I'll tell you this, Amazing Fantasy #15 is the most important piece of fantasy fiction ever produced. Not Lord of the Rings, Not the original Star Wars Trilogy, not the Hitchhikers Guide, not H…
  • Trying not to get into too broad a discussion about worldwide labor but if you look at the world as it is in 2018 vs 1988, technology is making the world much smaller. Information, the realization that workers in developing nations now have that bei…
  • @Linc said: Game devs need a union. https://kotaku.com/it-s-time-for-game-developers-to-unionize-1823992430 I can think of a hundred other industries as well. Our disrespect of organized labor is a massive sociological deficit.
  • I played The Wolf Among Us, that was also fantastic. Season two of The Walking Dead was alright but I started to bore of the game type, less their execution and more that I'm not exactly a huge fan of the genre. I did enjoy their poker games now tha…
  • I think it's for the best that Scott Pilgrim is a pop culture blind spot for me?
  • I love how they date the film for the late 90's by having her crash through a Blockbuster Video. Also, I'm pretty sure the lady she punches is a Skrull which is a power I love, it's so much fun with Mystique in the X-Men films. It opens up all these…
  • I have a fairly basic freesync monitor, the one I linked is much nicer than mine. I have a common 60Hz Samsung. The thing that is cool about it, it helps to temper some of the little frame rate hitches you may typically notice. You can leave V Sync …
  • Personally I'm running a Ryzen 1600 and an RX580 with 16GB of RAM and I have yet to encounter any workload that I didn't feel like I could rip through. 1080P games all play brilliantly, I have not gotten a QHD or 4K monitor yet so I'm not sure how w…
  • One of the things I discovered is I'm more susceptible to marketing than I ever thought I was. Like the idea of craft beer as a culture, a hobby, a movement..... It's very powerful. When you buy from your local brewer you almost feel like you are pa…
  • Yesterday went well. The get together was much smaller than planned. I think my wife told the gang I would not be bringing the beer because she didn't stop to do that. I just follow orders. In about a month I have all my work peers flying in and …
  • Sometimes I think to myself... I'll quit the Overwatch, move on to another game, but then I make a clutch play and start to wonder if the world needs a middle aged pro tank. Look out kids, I'm starting the grumpy gamers league.
  • @cola said: Or: They identified a character that was damn near unkillable in a well placed defense, could chew through any character (especially tanks) with her broken lock-on death ray, and had such a skinny profile that she's quite difficult t…
  • @pigflipper said: @Cliff_Forster said: I'm a huge fan of the new endorsement system. I've noticed a massive improvement in player attitudes already. The Symmetra re work is too extreme. I like throwing a lesser number of …
  • Ant-Man and the Wasp continues Marvel's winning streak. The comedy with the whole X-Con crew is brilliant, especially Michael Pena as Luis. Evangeline Lilly, I love her. I still feel a connection to all the actors from LOST, but Evangeline Lilly …
  • Vizio changes their mind yearly. They were on the Yahoo app store a few years back, they got off that. I think in 2015 they released TV that sold with tablets instead of standard remotes with the intent of using that as a dedicated screen casting de…
