    Your (analog) game haul for Christmas

    I love it. I'm a huge fan of games designed by Eric Lang and Rising Sun is my favorite. Yes, it edges out Blood Rage, in my opinion.

    Your (analog) game haul for Christmas

    I received Twilight Imperium: 4th Edition and Architects of the West Kingdom. I also received Broken Token box inserts for Rising Sun and the Scythe Legendary Box.
  3. What would you recommend, a high end, 1080P TV or a low end, 4K set? I have a high end Samsung 1080P TV from 2015 and am thinking about upgrading to 4K. I can't afford a high end system right now, but was looking at some of the Visio systems in the < $500 range. Obviously, the 4K is higher resolution than what I have now, but would everything else be just as good?
  4. So my Steam account was hacked and I can't sign in. In order to get support for anything on their website, you need to sign in. I try to follow the steps to reset my account and they email me a security code to enter. After I enter it, it tells me that the same type of request already exists and a duplicate request cannot be created. It's been like that for a couple of days now. I tried calling Valve and the only option they have is to leave a message with a generic voicemail box. If anyone has any other suggestions, I'd love to hear it.
  5. I believe they'll have to incorporate the characters into some other type of show. Netflix still owns the existing episodes and will keep showing them even after the Disney service starts. Whether they'd use the new Disney service or put them on Hulu, I doubt they'd continue the shows knowing that people would have to sign up with a competing service to view the original episodes.

    Consumer Technology About to Buy A Camera

    I'm a Canon DSLR shooter and have been a fan of their cameras. If you want to shoot 4K, their stuff might not be the best as it has a high crop factor. Even their new mirrorless EOS R has about a 1.7 crop factor, meaning you would need to use some decent wide angle lenses if you want the same view in full frame. You might still want to look at it though as it has a much broader selection of native lenses from both Canon as well as 3rd party lens manufacturers like Sigma and Tamron. Adapters exist for the Sony, but they're simply not as good. No way around that. The Canon EOS R also has a fully articulating touch screen. If you're going to be shooting vlogs at all, it's the only one that will allow you to see the screen while you film. Also, the size of the Canon is better, IMO. It has a better grip and is much more comfortable to hold. The Sony is too small and cramped, IMO.
  7. Get any versions of the Red Dragon Inn games. Each one will support up to 4 players, so for 8, you'd need two versions.
  8. I love that game too. I just can't wait until some of the expansions are available again.
  9. I'm loving this game. It looks and plays great.

    Baseball The Mariners

    Here's a good article explaining what happened to the Mariners. https://sodomojo.com/2018/09/11/5-reasons-mariners-will-watching-playoffs/
  11. I used to be able to, but not so much anymore. Anymore, if I have more than one game to track, I won't be able to decide which game I want to play so I end up not playing anything.
  12. I hope this turns out to be good, but after their version of Dark Souls and how poorly they managed the Kickstarter for that, I'm definitely hesitant to back this.
  13. Eldritch Horror is one I really like, but no one in my group likes cooperative games.
  14. Xbox One in my living room, Roku in my bedroom.
  15. That's a tough one. It definitely has its low points. It's been years since I've seen 1 and 2, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say 2 was better than 1.
  16. I love Scythe and will definitely be getting this expansion. I think I own every expansion and optional add on there is for Scythe.
  17. Other than the Street Fighter Anniversary collection, I haven't picked up anything from this year. I'm still mainly working on Assassin's Creed Origins (that game is huge). I plan on picking up Far Cry 5 and God of War and will definitely get Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
  18. To be fair though, no one really loved the way Anakin was portrayed either. It's bad writing all the way around for both characters. However, Anakin does have the known benefit of nearly being created by the Force where no such advantage is known for Rey.
  19. I would still like to see a "A Star Wars Story" film center around Palpatine. Base it on the Darth Plagueis book and show Palpatine's training and his work behind the scenes which leads to the rise of the Empire.
  20. To be fair, Rey didn't follow the same ark as Neo. Neo had to be taught. He failed and came back and succeeded. From the beginning, Rey could do everything perfectly without having to be taught at all. I'm not going to say the intent was to make her a Mary Sue, but that's definitely how she came off.
  21. Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Assassin's Creed Odyssey for sure. Maybe Spider-Man and Forza Horizon 4.

    Anyone here play Sheriff of Nottingham?

    It basically contains a handful of modules you can choose to add. Here's a summary of what it adds: Deputies: In six player games, you may use two Deputies instead of a single Sheriff. Here, both deputies must decide to search bags or let people pass, and they will share the punishments and rewards. If a deputy disagrees with the other and searches a bag, they will receive the punishment or reward by themselves. Merry Men: Adds new illegal goods in the form of 'merry men' characters. If they are successfully smuggled in, players will reveal it and activate its special ability. Black Market: Adds three sets of bonus cards that display illegal goods. The first player who successfully smuggles in the indicated goods receives the bonus cards and a large reward. Laws: Sheriffs must draw three law cards and choose two to keep. The chosen laws are in play for the entire round. Special Orders: Special order cards indicate combinations of one legal and one illegal good. If players can smuggle both of those items in the same bag, they get that card, which provides them with bonus gold.

    Anyone here play Sheriff of Nottingham?

    It's a lot of fun with the right group of people. I have the expansion for it as well, but haven't had a chance to play it yet.
