Re: Advice for Buying Something Hard to Find

Lots of stuff is still hard to find, I got back into RC cars and Mini-Z stuff is tough to find too. Luckily, it's pretty niche, so not a lot of scalpers for it.

Re: Classic D&D modules revisited? What would your list be?

You know, weird as it might sound, I've never actually played or run any of the classic modules. Not one. Even I find that incredible! :wtf: We didn't play many, but we did manage to get a hold of a few. I realized a few years ago that some of the best campaigns we had were based on published modul...

Classic D&D modules revisited? What would your list be?

I've been kicking around the idea of doing a playthrough of the classic modules. Either using an older edition, or tweaking them for 3.5 or 5th. So what would your list be? What must haves? I'd like to start from 1st level and go from there. I know some of them don't really fit neatly in a line, so ...

Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

Apparently it took longer than I expected for them to start withholding while I was laid off. Tax time should be fun this year. :shock: :lol:

Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

Every time I hear Skoda, I think tanks... I think WoT is responsible for pretty much all the brand recognition in the US. :lol: https://na-wotp.wgcdn.co/dcont/fb/image/wga-7153_wotpc_november_tank_sales_art_skoda_615x346.jpg Yep, looks quite a lot like my new car. Maybe a bit smaller. :thumbup: Pro...

Re: Advice for Buying Something Hard to Find

Honestly I would wait until spring. Supply lines are backed up, scalpers are in high gear, and it looks like Xbox, PS, and PC GPUs and CPUs had paper launches. I'm hoping things loosen up, both Skye and Dawn 'need' new computers. I've been planning on rebuilding mine for a while, but it seems like ...

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

There's a reason the point and click adventure game is a dead genre. They don't tell a story very well, they don't offer compelling gameplay, and the exploring aspect is even less exciting than in a walking simulator. They are a relic of a time when we were limited in the ability do any of those th...

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

Having said that, I strongly disagree with your assessment of there being no gameplay. I'd argue that exploring the world and solving puzzles ARE elements of gameplay, just not gameplay that interests you . I imagine you would be similarly bored with modern 'walking simulators', as they wouldn't re...

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

The ability to tell a story and the ability to tell a story well (not even considering the quality of the story itself) can be two very different things. The wall of text may be able to tell you a story, but integrating it into the game is a lot better. Define 'wall of text'. Would something like t...

Re: Advice for Buying Something Hard to Find

Sometimes the big box stores delay updating the online quantities available to keep scalpers from buying them up. Not sure if that currently applies to these consoles.
