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.

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.

@  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.

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?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

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

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Wear a hazmat suit. It's Walmart, they're used to weird.

The butcher was fun! The Skeleton king was much harder than him. Of course you really had to grind for gear before taking them either one of them on.

So this weekend the season ended, and I was playing and took a ten minute break, came back and saw all my stuff in my stash was missing! I freaked out but then I saw that they sent it all to me through their mail service. I guess from now on I will pay more attention to when the seasons change!

 

I also have gone through the Darkening of Tristam event for the first time. I know that they have done this for years, but I have always missed it. It was pretty fun, but I wish that they would put shortcuts in like the original Diablo game had so I don't have to start from level 1 every time. I played through it the first time with a new character so I could unlock the butcher pet, and I had a blast! Went back through it with my Demon hunter and just blazed through it.

 

 

Speaking of Demon hunter, I had a lot of fun with the multishot build I was using this past season. I got her up to almost level 500 prestige and was running in Torment 12 difficulty.

 

This coming season I am going to continue on with choosing a new character class to play. I will be trying out the Wizard class this time and see how fun that is.

For the Darkening of Tristram event, there's some rewards you can only get by doing it using a fresh Lvl 1 character.  Although I'd wait on doing that, because one of the end rewards is currently bugged and is awaiting a hotfix.

 

[edit] Bug has apparently been hotfixed now, so you should be able to get all the special cosmetic rewards now.

Well, to pass the time, other than do other things, I am taking my original Barbarian through and leveling him up. I beat the original game at level 44 with him, so I took him through the expansion and now I am playing Adventure mode with him. I am trying to get him up to level 70 so I can start getting him some better gear.

I'd definitely recommend looking up some guides for how toy play with Vyr, as it's a rather unorthodox build.  And unfortunately, not the best of the Wizard sets to start with because it's very gear intensive.  Lots of specific legendaries needed for the build to feel smooth at all.  Otherwise, it's very clunky, and you're going to feel absolutely useless when your outside of Archon form.  And with a base cooldown of 60s, and only 20s uptime, that's going to be a lot of the time without the gear to correct that.

 

Once you get it rolling though, it's quite versatile and powerful.  You can do rifts and bounties crazy-fast with it, and it can do GRs quite comfortably (if non-competitive with the very top Wizard builds).

 

 

As a more tenable "starter" build for Wizard, I recommend gambling for Sources until you find yourself an Etched Sigil, and then boots for Nilfur's Boast.  Then you can endlessly rain high-powered Meteors down on monsters' heads and push yourself up the difficulty ratings.

So far I am digging the Archon form. Even with just four pieces of gear, it is an insane build in that mode. You aren't joking thouhg about being defenseless outside of it though. 

 

I am rocking electrocute, and I have a source that lets the lightning bounce back to targets it already hit, so it is super effective against packs.  My heavy spell right now is disintegrate. No real reason, I just like it.

So I am up to 612 now and I am having fun. I switched up my gear to use the rings that give a boost per ancient item you have. So I have this weird mishmash of gear that has me using firewind, disintegrate, Electrocute, Meteor, teleport, and stormshield. I pretty much just spam firewind and electrocute between meteor recharges. I can solo greater rift level 55 now, and I am working on the last Champion achievement.

I am up in the 670's now. Grinding has slowed down a bit. I was going to try to play some last night but we had a bad thunderstorm come through and knock out power for three hours or so. I did get some play time in before we lost power and I was able to solo level 55 greater rift. Now I just need to solo a level 60 to unlock the highest difficulty and do one more conquest to finished the achievements to unlock a new stash tab!.

Well, I have finished all of the Seasonal achievements, and I have got my wizard up to 777. I have him running the Meteor Tal Rasha setup. It works pretty well and I can run GR 75s all day long with him. I have two Primal Ancient gear pieces now, and they are pretty neat, but don't add to much to my particular build.

I've been having fun gearing up with the Legacy of Nightmares seasonal buff, rather than the typical race to fill out the sets.  There's a more graceful, gradual ramp as each new Ancient Legendary boosts you up another couple of difficulty levels, instead of the usual 0-100 gearing process with the Haedrig's Gifts and all.  Haven't actually touched a set yet this Season (although I'll need to eventually, for Conquests).

 

Although, as you near the end of your gearing journey building this way, you start to curse your RNG even more than usual as you pray against all odds for an Ancient version of that one single item you need to fill that slot, and hope that it has good rolls on top of it all.

 

 

I started with Necro this season, reasoning that I may as well take advantage of the fact that this is one of the few times I'll get to actually use a lot of the Necro Legendaries (which are usually awkwardly locked out by their sets, and the fact that their Ring options are so powerful that you often can't even use the Ring of Royal Grandeur).  Kinda hit a gear wall, though, where I need multiple very specific pieces all at once to make up a significant power spike, so I switched gears to building a Crusader (since I'll need the second class for Conquests, anyways).
