  1. In terms of what would be a fatally flawed end product, I completely agree with Guard Dog. I would give a nod to Neverwinter Nights. If anything, I think it's worse than he does. Forget the other failings of the game, the story was really terrible. Probably the worst effort of any Bioware game I've played. In fact, it's so weak that I had to go look up the plot because I'd forgotten it. From the whole clich├ęd tutorial and subsequently four pronged fetch it quest to the over wrought ending, it was dismal. The idea of Lady Aribeth going evil isn't a bad one, and having her fall from grace
  2. I haven't played World of Warcraft in years, but I do miss my druid healer. I'd gone through most of firelands at the time. I do miss raiding. I just don't miss the time it takes to be ready to raid. My holy paladin was a lot of fun. Great healing while wearing plate. What's not to love? I just finished the library scenario as the mercs in Mordheim. Sooo different paying the mercenaries compared to the sisters of sigmar. If you can get the positioning right, those archers really tear up bad guys. There are times where the enemy doesn't even get to my front line with even a quarter
  3. I've never seen Gone With the Wind, but I should see it sometime. Probably with my wife. I love the Lawrence of Arabia film. Hearkening back to another thread in this forum, I think it depicts the glory any shame of the British empire. Peter O'Toole deserved the Oscar for that. Anyhow, great film.
  4. I was a bit burned by Tyranny. I started gung ho but ended ho hum. However, I should give it another chance. Only started once and played to the end of the prologue or beginning or whatever. Also, I loved Pillars, but I found that I petered out on that after the end of the White March 1, which is odd now that I think of it because I really enjoyed the White March. Anyhow, the question is, start a new game of Tyranny, finish my Pillars run with the White March 2, or buy this one and play it. Decisions decisions decisions.
  5. I think most things impact the margins. The point is to scare your side into voting and convince the other side its guy is either not worthy of the effort or simply can't win no matter what. Antifa has already had an impact (or at least something) has had an impact on the fundraising for the ealier part of this year, but as the last presidential election demonstrated, having hundreds of millions more than the other party doesn't ensure victory.
  6. My point is that bussing and of itself isn't bad. If a group wants to bus people to a protest site, that's not bad unless the group in question does something bad. I'm more concerned about public perception and how it impacts the election. That's something with more concrete measures than folks dredging up webpages that other folks discount out of hand. I probably won't be here next November, but wherever I am, I'll make sure to own my predictions. Closer to the election, around January or February, I'll make predictions on my social media, which makes it impossible to get out of them.
  7. The mad dash to establish parity will help the Democrats, but not by a huge degree. The idea that the Republicans or other mainstream conservative groups are bussing in nazis won't get traction with the bulk of the American people because most won't believe it. True or not, there is a large percentage of the population that believes that left leaning groups bus in protestors to some events. It should be easy to find evidence of bussing and if it is compelling, then it serves to bolster an argument. Both Democrats and Republicans use carpooling and bussing to get voters to the polls. There
  8. That's the problem. If you term antifa as loosely people who are anti-fascist, I'm antifa. I don't think it's cool that mask wearing thugs have redefined the meaning, but there you go. I'm with you on that, Ben. As for you, smjjames, I agree that the Dems are starting to work hard to distance themselves. They were slow to do it, but I see them starting to craft narratives beyond Trump hate and antifa.
  9. As a practical matter, antifa is not going to help the Democrats in the next election. Sure, it's probably a badge of honor in this particular forum, but the Democrats will have to take the day with the albatross of antifa on their backs because people have come to associate them with the Democrats, which is probably unfair for the Democrats. Of course, this is the way of things since for so long it's been a winning tactic for the left to associate people like Nazis and white supremacy movements with the Republicans. This isn't about winning an internet argument. I have nothing but contem
  10. I've decided that I like Mordheim better if I don't switch out a couple of heroes for the special unit. Even moreso with the mercs than the sisters, although I would contend with both. The big ogre dude is great and durable, but as long as you're careful, the extra two heroes are much more flexible and all moving resources around much better.
  11. I might look into Twin Peak, assuming it's available on one of the streaming services I already have. Been watching Rectify. Compelling, well done, and brilliantly conceived. Great show that's depressing as all hell. Gotta take it in small doses.
  12. I might have to try this. You mean D:OS2?
  13. In my experience, redneckdevil, almost everybody is bullied at some point or another and almost everybody bullies someone else. Humans are a fickle lot like that. I myself have a glorious and inglorious history, like a lot of people, and I can't take credit for the times I've stood up for myself and others if I don't accept the shame for the times I was too scared to stand up and didn't help anyone. Even worse, the times when I had the opportunity to take my part in the chain by maybe leaning hard on someone just because I had the opportunity and wanted to see them bend. Sure, those times were
  14. I just got back into my Mordheim warband. I'm playing mercenaries, but I see at least one new faction. Some sort of ghastly undead assortment. Put the hammer down the redeaded freaks a couple times now. I'd like to be able to play an elvish warband. I love the sisters of Sigmar. I've had a lot of fun with the sniper set merc faction. I haven't warmed as much to the witch hunting bunch and I have no use for chaos or vermin... other than target practice. I've never played Necromunda, either on board or on computer, but I'd be interested in it. The Mordheim game is absolutely brilliant.
  15. I spent the evening at the LA county fair. My niece valiantly accepted her finish, which wasn't what she wanted. Still, she had a great time and was laughing and joking quickly afterwards. She's much more resilient than me. I'd be kicking myself. After the cupcake competition, they convinced me to shell out $9.75 for a deep fried bacon wrapped pickle. 10 bucks! What the hell, man?! Anyway, tasted interesting. Hot. Then we went to the Alice in Wonderland themed area and poked around. The niece was in love with the pygmy hedgehogs. The wife fell in love with the white bunnies. I figured it would
