Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

Oh and before anyone brings it up, I have realized that I got started on a seasonal character and fixed that mistake.  Thankfully I caught it before getting too far in XD

 

No harm in rolling a seasonal character. When the season is over, it reverts to a regular character.

 

Enjoy Diablo III, while it's the weakest entry of the franchise, it's still a very solid game and leaps and bounds better than it was when it originally launched. Actually being your first foray into the franchise will help, since for me I couldn't help but see it as "Diablo's Greatest Hits" in terms of the level design. (Act 1 is basically the original Diablo. Act 2 is Act 2 of Diablo 2. Act 3 is Diablo 2's expansion, etc)

I have to admit that act 3 is my favorite in the game, and that act 5 in D2 was also my favorite in that game, so that would make sense.

So I was doing story mode on my wizard. Got to level 12 and just beat skeleton king. Ironbite and Mphage got mail from me.

I kind of want to make a crusader as a second toon.

I have made it past level 40 now.  My Doctor Wizard is dishing out death wholesale!

 

I really appreciate the transmogrification and dye options and that they aren't limited to armors/colors you already have.  Just level the station up and you get access to whatever they have.  Lets you pretty freely craft a look for your character while still getting new good gear.

Yeah, all the basic transmogs are freely available provided the Mystic is leveled up enough for that particular skin.

 

The collect-a-thon begins once you want to start adding the Legendary skins into your repertoire.  Those you unlock by finding the items themselves.  Those come pretty quickly once you're at the post-70 content, though, so no need to really stress out about them.

 

The real hard ones to get are the rare world drops.  A few bosses in the game have a potential rare item drop for Transmog purposes.  Plus there's other similar items that can only be found in semi-rare "Mysterious Chests" scattered in certain locations around the world.

I just got the season armor set for my Demon Hunter. The last set bonus gives my abilities a 40X damage boost. I am now one shotting Torment 5 enemies now where I was struggling before. This set is insane!

So, the last time I played D3 was back on the original Xbox 360 release.  So this new version has a bunch of new stuff I'm not familiar with, like what is Season mode?  I'm trudging through the core campaign with a Demon Hunter (I was an Act way from finishing the game on 360 with a Crusader).

I've played enough to see that campaign mode is a LOT more free with rare items and treasure Goblins, compared to how I remember the prior gen version.

Season mode is basically starting a character from scratch (no access to your other characters crafters, mogs, money, paragon points, etc) but in going through the game you have the chance to get season specific gear and other rewards for completing certain objectives. Once the season is over (seasons have a set time frame, usually a few months), your character will revert to a normal character but retain the rewards from the season.

Basically, it's just an extra motivator to "refresh" the game every three months or so, instead of sticking with the same character forever and only seeing minute upgrades.

 

It gets you up and running a little bit quicker than if you were to start a new character completely from scratch, plus you can get some unique cosmetic rewards if you complete the "Season's Journey" quest line.

So I upped my difficulty to Torment 8 and the game became more challenging again. Definitely need to do some grinding in there to get more prestige levels and see if I can get a weapon upgrade.

There's occasionally the Sprinter Conquest that has you attempt to beat the entire campaign in an hour (quite difficult without a coordinated group), but otherwise you don't have to touch the campaign at all in Seasons. Most of it requires Adventure mode, in fact.

Well, that's a surprise.  After 4-5 seasons of virtually no changes outside of the recent addition of the Season theme, we're actually getting a new patch for the next season of Diablo 3:

 

https://us.diablo3.c...100000004082190

 

Mostly just boosting more numbers to insane levels, in an attempt to bring more parity to the class specs.  Nothing much new mechanically, otherwise.

 

What is somewhat interesting though is the new season theme, "Season of Grandeur".  Essentially, you'll passively have the ability of the Ring of Royal Grandeur, without having to equip it.  That'll be interesting to see what it brings to existing specs, being able to equip one more utility Legendary, or free up a ring slot for the few odd specs that still use the RoRG.  This will also mark the first Seasonal theme that doesn't carry into the off-season, with all the potential builds making use of it being rendered dead outside of the season (unless they're floating the idea of reducing the class set requirements to 5 to free things up a bit, and this is just a test bed).
