It's probably stuck on the low priority end of Warden's to-do list.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 November 2019 - 10:45 PM)

Because the only full-body Nightbeat was that Bumblebee with a new head one.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2019 - 04:14 PM)

Why has there been no new Minerva toys? I’m surprised at Takara. The Titan Master head doesn’t count.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

On my shelf I have Ginrai donning the Star Convoy armor.

@  Liege : (19 November 2019 - 07:42 AM)

That he is.

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

And a good boy

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 04:29 AM)

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

Yup, once he dings 50, gotta gather/craft up that CP160 gear for him.  The last couple cahracters I leveled up I actually pre-gathered their sets so I had them mostly ready to go on hitting 50.  Still had a few holes here and there, but easily filled once I started going.

Well, I like Mechanical Acuity for him, and can craft it on my main crafter, but will need to hit a few more skyshards to grab the max level in Clothing (it's a Medium armor dude).

I like one aspect of the Summerset tutorial.  "Wait, if that was all in my mind, how come all the stuff I looted is still with me?" is answered by the NPC.  Usually they don't bother explaining how you can loot a memory or a Spinner tale.

One annoying thing: if you start the main Summerset quest on an existing character from the Collectibles window and take a ship like it suggests rather than take the pre-added wayshrine, it dumps you on the opposite side of the island from Shimmerene.

Shimmerene isn't a full-service town, I guess they figured existing characters would be happier starting off at the main city with a bank and basic housing and stuff, then ride across the zone to start the storyline?  Summerset doesn't feel very hard to get across, scale seems to be a bit inconsistent between zones when comparing to the world map (plus there's a road all the way across, no mountain ranges or volcanoes in the way).

So I wasn't sure if I could get a dog since Runa already brought home a fox. But I found Meeko and brought him home and Runa wanted to keep him. So now I have a fox and a dog for pets.

...

And

...

He barks

...

a lot!

Any why the heck doesn't Lucia want a pet? Runa's got two, Lucia has yet to ask for one. Poor kid!

Also, how do you pronounce Lucia? All this time I've been saying Loo-see-ah. But looking at it again, I'm not sure if maybe it's supposed to be Loo-sha.

Now you've got me wondering how long it's been since I've let my PS+ run out. I quit playing soon after buying the werewolf dlc and leveling up to where I could turn others. It's been a while.

Even with the new improvements, I find the home decorating system tedious enough (mainly avoiding weird clipping) that I haven't done anything with my houses that's worth showing off.  I did finally put stuff in my Psijic Mansion, mostly to get it out of my storage.

I want to build a house themed around my ice witch Khajiit too, but there's no properties that have snow, really.  I considered the snowglobe, but it didn't feel right, and the other Nord houses don't seem to fit as well.  There's the witch hut over in Hag Fen, but I'd have to buy a bunch of snow from the decorations store to give it a proper winter look, so I'm iffy on that.  Been considering maybe that orc keep, but haven't jumped on it yet for the same reason(snow decorations cost crowns).

Elder Scrolls: Blades is out for people who signed up for early access, and I've been playing it for the last few days. The graphics are fantastic for a mobile game, and I'm a sucker for games where you build up your home base which is basically what this is centered around.

The major gripe so far seems to be around the chest mechanic - if you obtain a chest, it goes to a chest menu where you have to unlock it (which can take up to 6 hours) and then open it. Once you accumulate a few chests, you realise they're going to take you several days to open, and if your chest storage is full of silver chests (3 hours to open) you can't pick up any of the gold chests which must have better stuff.

My main gripe is that the game keeps spending my gems for me. Gems can be gotten for free, but they're also the in-game currency that you can buy in the store. You can use them to speed up opening chests, and also speed up crafting or tempering equipment. If a piece of equipment is being tempered, and you go to the blacksmith and try to repair the equipment you're actually using, the game seems to, without warning, use gem to complete the tempering when you hit the repair button.

ESO:Elseweyr is out for PC now.  I've made a magicka Necromancer, though I'll probably do the Elseweyr storyline on my Khajiit thief from Hew's Bane first.  I think I'm satisfied with my necro's look though for now.

 

Behold, Scatters-The-Bones:

skyqdSj.jpg

 

(I originally wanted to name her "Reads-The-Bones" but that was already taken.  So was Tosses-, Throws-, Rattles-, Speaks-With- and Listens-To-. I considered "Watches-The-Bones" but Scatters seemed to flow better.  You know, Speaks-With-Bones would have been PERFECT too. :( )

 

Also here's a quick way to see if a particular name has been taken without spending time in the character creator first.  Take a note of who you have on your ignore list, then try adding the character name you want to it.  If it exists, the account that owns it will be added to ignore(whence why you note who was on it first so you can remove the accounts you add in this way, later.) If it doesn't exist, you'll get an error message, and you can then go make your character!
