I just ate a Red Baron pizza

the whole thing.


Sometimes you just want a taste of childhood.


I only eat frozen pizzas like a couple times a year, but man, I always feel like a sack of shit when all I have in the checkout line at the grocery store is frozen pizza, beer, and a couple energy drinks. The store I go to after I get off work is never the one I actually buy real groceries at, either, and they don't have self checkout, so the cashiers there all know me by face now. And they only ever see me buy shitty food and beer. I wonder what they think?

Astro A50 headset

27 October 2014 - 03:33 AM

I've been using one for a little while now, and there's one thing that bugs me; It simply does not seem to work using the spdif (optical) output for very long. Whenever I plug the headset in, the optical output will work for a while before the only way to get sound through the headset is to select "Astro Wireless Transmitter" (USB) from the audio devices.

I'm not sure if this is even a problem. Maybe I'm not losing any audio quality transmitting it through USB vs. optical, I have no idea. It just annoys me that the optical configuration seems to be so buggy, seeing as this is a fucking $300 headset. I've looked around online and a lot of people seem to have the same problem but I haven't found a solution other than "play around with properties>advanced in the sound menu of control panel."


I know a few other users here have the same headset. Anyone have the same problem?


Also, when I use it on my Xbox One, it seems like it doesn't detect an input. Even though sound is passing through the speakers just fine and the microphone works just fine, the headset will simply shut off after ~10 minutes or so as it does when there's no input signal for a certain amount of time.

Anime of the last ~5 years that you would consider "must watch"?

I haven't really watched much anime over the last few years. I got into it a while back with shows like Samurai Champloo, Black Lagoon, Baccano! (my personal favorite), among others. Other than watching a little bit of High School of the Dead, I haven't really watched any since then, though.

Where do you fall on the gay spectrum?

Shadow of Mordor HD pack

08 October 2014 - 03:33 PM

So I'm finally buying this game, and I notice there's an HD pack (on top of the 34gb download! what is this, my Xbox One!?!? :epilepsy: )

Let's say, for instance, I have a rig with an i5-3570k @ 3.4 ghz (I could overclock if I have to, I just haven't bothered yet), 8gb of RAM and a GTX 770 with 4gb of memory. Would downloading the HD pack slow the game down too much? Would there be a downside at all? Could I download it and then, like, not use it if the game slows down too much?
