Not a lot said

Just caught up on the latest two episodes and I've got to say I certainly didn't miss much avoiding this board. Wow, are we not interested in this season. I can see why though after watching these episodes back to back. There isn't a lot to love here [more]

Re: Game of Throne 4/19/15

My guess is we don't see Arya Stark for a while as she's in training with Jacun Hunar (again, I apologies for the spelling - always thought Tyrion's champion was from Dawn till the description said it was Dorne). That's a shame as I like [more]

So, are we all still knocked back on our heels? Is that why we haven't posted about this?

Re: GoT 4/12/15

Thank you, spoilers are so tempting but I'm working really hard at avoiding them.

As always, the episode was too short.

Those poor dragons.

I thought for a while Tyrion (as the head of the Lannister house) would end up [more]

Re: Dumb-azz Rodney

Yeah, gotta admit that any thought I had that Rodney might be smarter than he looks was removed today. There is nothing that boy is doing that can't be immediately sussed out.

Re: Dragon Age on Sale!

Okay, updated drivers and full-screen windowed mode and everything is fine, except the load times.

....and the camera. Trying to do tactics is difficult but that's what behaviours are for.

Now I'm enjoying it.

Re: Dragon Age on Sale!

Wow, this is a game that has been out for a while. I don't have a system that can take full advantage of it but man, graphical issues, sound issues, interminable load times, and I just crashed to desktop for no reason. Plus, I can't get it to talk to [more]

Well, there goes my prediction of Kelly winning it all. I still found her a strange target for last night considering all the other potential targets. I think it was just spite, mostly because those girls aren't playing a long game. Nothing really [more]

I think I played the game through 3-4 times. If you think you're capable of that, play vanilla first.

Re: Sid Meiers: Starships

Interesting. They must know they don't have a winner here. The game is selling on Steam for C$17.

Pretty pathetic for a Sid game.

What you should do is setup a spousal RRSP; fund it as much as you can (even consider taking a loan) and then have her withdraw the money once she leaves her job. There are some rules along the timing of this approach but it should allow you to [more]

Did we post predictions?

After the first episode I thought the cop was going to win. After the four that have aired, I still think she'll win. Especially as she was an undercover cop. I think she's got the right combination of skills.

Plus, she's not getting a lot [more]

Re: New gaming machine

Ron,

The shops up here in Canada will assemble and warranty the assembly for a very nominal fee. It's more than worth it in savings and getting what you want.

Re: My Undying Confusion over Crusader Kings
