Re: Dark Souls a bit of a review

I heard about the controller issues for this game made it insanely difficult. As such I've owned this game for a year and never started it once. I'm not a big fan of putting myself through that sort of pain.

Thanks for taking one for the [more]

Steam Christmas Sale - M&M X

Any thoughts on Might & Magic X - Legacy? It's been on my wishlist for a while and is now dirt cheap, but is it any good?

Re: Steam Christmas Sale!!!!!

We're off on a slight tangent here but I HATE playing Alpha and Beta games. I am not a bug hunter. I don't want to report bugs. I also have a limited amount of time for playing games (yes, it's a big limit, but it's still a limit). I rarely play a [more]

Re: Nibble

Wow, the last thing I'm looking at these days are US$ stocks because of the exchange rate. I got burned on PFE ages ago because of that and if we go much lower might consider selling my US$ stocks for the double gain (PFE has recovered based on stock [more]

Re: The Steam Holiday Auction

...now would be the time and maybe make a buck or two.

I have many many games in my library. I've played almost all of them. I have a grand total of 71 things in my inventory worth roughly 1700 gems. Like WTF?! How [more]

On followers, the native american with toaster repair looks hopeless.

Re: Wasteland 2 Again

I have tried to max out their primary weapon skill.

That was the last skill I developed once I got to the 5-6 range. IMO lockpicking and computer science are critical. Explosives and safecracking next. Speech skills [more]

Re: Wasteland 2 Again

One irksome element, I have a character with a semi permanent concussion and cannot find a "real doctor" to make that go away.

Highpool? Ranger Citadel? Both have good doctors.

Don't skimp on heading back to Ranger [more]

Re: Steam Exploration Sale

They're coming out with an expansion that will add some RNG and introdice the Necromancer class.

Don't they already have that in that there are percentages for spells to work? Am I missing something in the game [more]

Nice to know we are on the same page, even with respect to MFC.

Banks and Dividend Ratios

Just a quick post as I take the kids to school.

The banks are re-approaching some very nice dividend yields. Comparing payout ratio and dividend yields I've bought some BMO for the first time. My next favourite would be more BNS but that [more]

Wasteland 2

Just finished the game. It was very good for 90% of it but there were some organizational things wrong with Hollywood. I did quests but never got them so never got credit for them. Just did things in the wrong order. Not as bad as Divinity where I [more]

Steam Exploration Sale

I certainly don't NEED to buy anything, so I'm thinking of passing till the Christmas sale. Still, some games on my list from 25-50% off with the odd one at 66% off. I'm thinking the Christmas sale is usually better than [more]

Re: Modern Wing Commander-like Games?

Nope, throttle and stick can separate by a few feet.
