  1. My Wasteland 3 game has stalled. I've reached Denver, but I'm kind of puttering around. I have a couple of games I've been waiting to play until I get the last piece of my new rig, the video card. Everywhere I look, the RTX 3080 is sold out. Very frustrating, but when I get it and finally assemble the mess, I'm going to give a couple of high demand games a try. Probably start with cyberpunk 2077.
  2. Prey is great. Anyhow, playing 2nd run of Wasteland 3. I'm on hard and the battles are easy. I think knowing the battles makes them much easier. Slow going due to time, but still fun.
  3. I aced my ECG exam and I nailed my OSCE, which is great because it's graded, but even better is that my preceptor has started letting me do assessments and treatment. She asks me what I did, but then signs off on it. Basically, at one point, I'd written myself off. Now, I feel as if I've justified my life between my work as an RN (which I still practice) and in my upcoming role as a provider.
  4. I'm early in my "hard" difficulty of Wasteland 3. Still easy, but there have been a couple of tough fights. I'm still more RPG centered rather than specced for combat. Great game, flaws and all.
  5. Finished Wasteland 3. Great game, but there are things that really sucked. My philosophy in these games is to get my main skills etc. high as soon as I can and to specialize everyone. Modding and bargaining are a pain in the rear. The lack of sorting and filtering for weapons and armor is plodding. On normal level, the battles are trivial, which leads to lazy play. For example, there's no real lasting consequence for someone going down on normal, so I tended to rush in a lot and just heal up. Some battles lent themselves to planning and if it looked tough, I'd position my squad, but mos
  6. It was the worst reaction to a vaccination in my life. Keep in mind, GD, I was *much* younger when I went through all those shots. I get the flu every year, but that's never caused anything. As for you, Bruce, I feel ya. Just a few months before the terrible heat makes things miserable here.
  7. I got my second shot of the Pfizer vaccine on Monday. Having served overseas and getting all scheduled vaxxes on time, I have never been hit so hard by a vax as I was by the second shot. There were a couple of things that definitely didn't help. First, I didn't get much sleep the night before. Second, I only had my usually coffee the morning of. Finally, I could have taken a Tylenol beforehand. To be fair, I felt fine the first day. It was the next morning that really kicked my ass. I wouldn't even bother posting except to advise folks to take a different route. Putatively, and by the
  8. I've been playing Wasteland 3. Since I was here last, I actually cleared a couple of games off the docket, but I find I really like Wasteland 3. Sadly, I wasn't as enamored of Assassins Creed Odyssey. I do appreciate the Greek aspect, even the modern Greek pronunciation, but I just couldn't get into the kind of aimlessness of it. I much preferred Prey or Dishonored, which probably just means I tend to like games where I can be lazy and follow a set story-line, although I love New Vegas where I could more or less follow a story but still strike out on my own. Wasteland 3, at any rate, is m
  9. I not only remember the Cold War, I remember serving during it. On one hand, the threat of annihilation was always present. On the other hand, we more or less faced it together. On the third hand, I accept the gentle remonstrations of my friend. I am a Catholic and he is... not :wry grin: but I take it this way, we should be glad in our times and our trials. They have been worse. If it's true that faced them together in the past, perhaps we can find a way to face them together now. I don't know who all here is a believer, let alone a Christian. I don't even care. God bless and keep you
  10. I get the impression that I'm kind of persona non grata around here these days, but that simply can't stop me from my usual "trawling" wishing everyone a happy and blessed Christmas. :broad grin: I won't claim I'm not a troll, but I will insist that my wishes are heartfelt. This has been a difficult year for everyone, but it has had its moments. I find I'm quicker to anger, as if I were back in more impetuous days, but I remain quick to forgive, and that's what I want most this Christmas. I want to put aside all the anger that has accumulated over the past year. Anyhow, if someone has created
  11. Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the day. People keep saying 2021 simply cannot be worse than this year. Makes me cringe. If it gets any worse next year, this may be the last Thanksgiving before the comet hits the earth or the zombie apocalypse or whatever the hell's going to happen.
  12. Going through Stygian Lovecraft game. I restarted because I thought I could do a better job and then got busy, but I have some time coming up. I want to finish it and then look into other Lovecraftian games.
  13. About 2/3 through the current semester. This one has been cake, especially since Adult and Aging Care was pushed to next semester. However, that means 180 clinical hours next semester. I'm thinking about switching to a different per diem job after the new year. I get paid fairly well for what I do now, but I don't like keeping patient information at home, I can't take patient calls like I do when I'm in clinical hours, and I don't want to have to drive all over the Inland Empire. ...And the LA office is always swamped and asking me to take their patients. They get in a bind and then real
  14. Brrrrrr! Keep warm, brother! We'll be thinking of you in the lands between borders. As for myself, Obsidz therapy time. I had an experience at the grocery today. I won't get into the specifics, but I had to speak to the manager at the local market. I am probably one of the most friendly and urbane people you all would meet in person, but every now and again something can draw my ire. To put this in perspective, I am a giant and I can look *really* mean when I'm angry. So, at some point, the manager, we'll call him Ren, says, "You want to step away from me?" Oh. my. Lord. I actual
  15. I've played Naheulbeuk and it's fun. Turn based tactical game. It's fun on a rail, though, so don't think you'll get a lot of nuance and subtlety, though. The humor is pretty puerile, but it does have one of my favorite teenage laugh lines. Something like: "We're going to be shoved through the **** pipe and get shat on!" So stupid it does occasionally make you laugh.
