    Hogwarts Legacy

    I was hoping to get the collectors edition for my wife...I figured they'd go on sale sometime around Christmas. Nope went on sale and sold out weeks ago.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Infinite is next, I never played that one all the way through. I didn't feel like it was Bioshock. I'd like to say I'm going to replay Dead Space, but I'm pretty sure I never finished the first one. Looking at my library I got an itch to play through the Jedi Knight series. Might be a bit...

    found physical dvd rom of Unreal games, can't activate on EPIC launcher?

    I've just bought digital copies of all my games. Less head ache and I don't have to worry about the dust storm from my game cases by moving them. They're less than $10 for the most part.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Completed Bioshock and started up Bioshock 2. After about an hour I realized I didn't recall anything about the game. No technical issues with Bioshock 2 so far.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    It's working sporadically. Had one crash which lost me about 30 minutes of play. I just spam the quick save button. If I get an error I play for ten more minutes and try again. No issues loading a game yet *fingers crossed*.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Fired up Bioshock Remastered last night after creating the folder structure C:\userid\documents\BioshockHD\Bioshock\SaveGames\. (All my user profile folders are on a separate drive). Created a shortcut to the .exe instead of launching it through Steam and tried it running as Admin. I got ten...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I binged through all the Crysis games. Decided to install and play through Bioshock Remastered. Cannot save or load games. I installed vanilla Bioshock and I'll be trying to give that a go this weekend. Sent a case to 2k and they replied back with a troubleshooting guide for consoles. Then...

    Mesh Wifi with good parental controls: porn blacklisting

    I have it running on a VM for now because I wanted to test out a few builds. If I like pihole long term, I've got a Pi3 with it's name on it. Server is sitting on a box in my office and the little one ran over and pressed the power button. Elsewise it's not an issue. Typically if the power...

    Mesh Wifi with good parental controls: porn blacklisting

    That's a good point. I set my backup to a public DNS after my son decided to simulate a power failure on my server. Until pihole came back up I couldn't do diddly on my PC. I chalked that up to growing pains, haven't attempted any other scenario yet. (Mostly because Netgear released a...

    Mesh Wifi with good parental controls: porn blacklisting

    Pretty much, Yep. Any device on your network setup for DHCP typically hit the router first or DHCP server for DNS. Most home routers just use the default or your ISPs. Telling your router no, you do not want it dynamically looked up here is the DNS server, all DNS requests hit the Pihole...

    Mesh Wifi with good parental controls: porn blacklisting

    I installed a NIC I grabbed off ebay ($10) to passthrough to an Ubuntu VM running Pihole giving it a static IP address along the way. I haven't done it yet, but on your router you'd just update your DNS to the Pihole. Or configure each device to use the pihole as DNS. I'm currently doing this...

    I've been working through Dragon Age Origins. I feel like this is going to take awhile. I bought a while ago Battlefront II. Got that installed and am working through the campaign.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I went with Dragon Age. I'm enjoying the story and the game play. Tactics is going to take some work to figure out. While I was figuring things out, when someone in my party died while I was figuring out how to issue commands I'd load a save game. Took me awhile to figure out that if someone...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Finally knocked out Witcher 3. I got the hang of Gwent about 3/4 of the way through the game (I typically do not care for these games within games). So after beating the main story I went through and completed the side quests and collecting the cards was actually quite fun. I might purchase...

    How many games do you need to buy?

    I've stopped buying games in the $20-50 range. I wait till they are less than $15 now. If its something I absolutely want and will defiantly play immediately then full price it is. Which actually works for me. I've got ten year old games I've yet to play. I'll get there one day.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Witcher 1 was painful to play. Had I played it back when it came out I might have enjoyed it a bit more. Story was solid IMO and it was fun after I retrained myself on old gameplay mechanics. Witcher 2 was an improvement, and I enjoyed the story on that one too. Witcher 3 is, IMO, above and...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    The Witcher 3 is on my game list. Never played them before and I'm enjoying them a lot! Going around collecting loot now to sell and build up a nice stockpile of cash. I played the first one, enjoyed it quite a bit. The second one I got lost in a city since the graphics all looked the same...

    Command & Conquer Remaster is Worth it?

    Back when it originally came out you had to have separate licenses in order to play over LAN. Physical media wise they did start to include them in multipacks where you got all CnC games. Those ended up being cheaper than purchasing the one or two games I was missing. Not sure exactly on the...

    Command & Conquer Remaster is Worth it?

    I fire those up from time to time to relive my childhood. I've purchased so many copies of those two I can't even count. Pretty sure I have physical media x2, Steam, Origin, and some others. I distinctly recall one LAN party where it was my three friends VS. me alone. Slaughtered them all...

    Thousands of Playstation 5 consoles being stockpiled by Walmart

So now when they ask to see my receipt I ask them why. If they do not say they suspect me of stealing something or something was not rang...
