  • @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…
  • @BlackHawk said: @UPSLynx said: I haven't been in the market for a TV since I bought my LED Sony 64 inch back in 2011. Is it possible to buy a modern TV that doesn't have internet of things nonsense in it? Just shoot me if I ever…
  • @Thrax said: I think Hammond is the most fun and exciting hero in the game. I absolutely cannot wait for him to go live. His skillcap is astronomical and he's so rewarding to get right. I hope he will be useful as a counter to a pirate sh…
  • I'm still milking a last generation plasma screen I got in 2012. I gawk at 4K TV's all the time but probably won't be in the market a bit longer. LG's WebOS smart TV platform is fantastic and their remote on higher end models is pretty fantastic. Gr…
  • 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 turrets for more damage but her ultimate, that teleport vs. shie…
  • @Thrax said: And, like, 2 notable games based on Cyberpunk. All depends on how you classify cyberpunk as a sub genre of science fiction. I'd say there are many titles that can be lumped in with it, but only a few that truly capture the es…
  • @CB said: Okay. I didn't watch the trailer frame by frame to analyse the potential protagonists. I left the trailer with the impression that the protag is a gruff white dude. He'll probably be default, at least, like in Mass Effect, we'll see and…
  • @CB said: Because what our gaming landscape really needs right now is another gruff white dude protagonist in a dystopian society with a fetish for the pseudo-exotic. To be fair, the developer is Polish. Most of them only know other white…
