Playing GTA 3 the other day, and a Pogo the Monkey commercial came on the radio.

Near the end of the ad: "Female Announcer: And help Pogo to his final mission, to storm the White House with his friends and become president of the United States."

Simpsons ain't the only precognitive series...

I've gotten into so many new content creators thanks to Among Us. DumbDog, 5up, stevesuptic, koji, Wolfabelle, and a few others. I can only stand to play that game when I have a bunch of friends on it too, but man the streams and YouTube content that's been coming out for it is amazing.

@Tetra_Vega

Covid cases just started spiking here in New Brunswick after being safe most of the year. I haven't been sick since last November, odd because I usually get sick every few months.

No personal people losses, but I have lost the majority of my works since the image hosting site TinyPic has been permanently shutdown by the Covid crisis economic strain. I lost the original files earlier in the year when my father sent his computer to get fixed. Wasted money on a memory stick for nothing, fuckin deleted my damn files before I could use it! just bought myself a new computer to recollect my stuff, and for what, shits gone off the web too.

I'M SO FUCKING PISSED, but I know other people have lost far more important things...

Stay safe.

I wanted to put together a PC in Jan/Feb 2021 (after more than 20 years!) but AMD just went overboard with their new Ryzen CPU prices and GPU prices are now equal to a 5-year-old car so I decided to dust off games and now I'm replaying american Assassin's Creed on my 7-year-old laptop.

AC3 - ah, Haytham... I'm a sucker for a good anti-hero. He should have gotten his own game. And the voice actor would be a good replacement for Kain in LoK series (should Simon Tepleman ever abanon the role). Connor is boring but fortunately missions in the Homestead make the game for me. Too bad you can not replay them. I so loved chasing pigs in this pretty, white Ezio outfit (would be hilarious if you could fall into the mud and get it dirty!). I'm also one of the few people who like Charles Lee... I just wish they woudn't destroy his character (he just switches his views 180 degrees somewhere in the middle of the game because the writers just had to make someone the villain... so badly executed).

AC:Rogue - my fav game. Though I remember Shay not being such a crybaby. But all in all I managed to completly destroy the economy of the game (this is what happens when you have hoarding habits and collect every bit of trash on the map in the beginning and are too OP for the main story XD). I also started to like George Monroe very much. Too bad he died.

AC4 - I remember abandoning the game somewhere in the middle as the main character was so boring and could not decide what he wants to do. I'll give this game a chance once I replace my HDD with SSD. Meybe I'll change my mind about it.

PS. do NOT install Win10 on HDD! I migrated from Win7 to 10 and it runs like a snail and everybody I asked said that it is a better and faster system. Yeah, right... if you have an SSD... liars!

I've never been into AC so I can only respond to the beginning and end of your post, but I've got Win10 running on a 5 year old desktop (one that was high end when I bought it, but has no SSD) and aside from some occasional boot hiccups I've found it to be pretty good. This is coming from someone who has usually disliked Windows and had a Mac for a long time before this PC. Could be because you have a laptop, but I really can't say for sure. I haven't looked at the new Ryzen stuff, are the prices really that outrageous?

@m0s3pH

As for CPU: I found the price of 3800x at $399 whereas it's current replacement 5800x is at $449 (I was eyeing 3700 more but there is no 5700 so you can not compare prices). And from what I remember progress is when you have more for less ar at least for the same price. Otherwise it's not progress. It's just more for more.

As for SSD: I don't have problems with booting, it's normal that when you have HDD you just have to wait. I had huge problems with windows opening (I had to wait longer than usual) or with such a trivial thing as picture viewing... 5-10sec to open the program is just too much. Maybe Win10 started as a lightweight OS for tablets and office PCs but now it's just an old hog. I replaced HDD with SSD and it works as it should. Maybe as you wrote, you did not have such problems because you bought a high end PC. I bought my laptop mid-range (I just went to the store and said: mister, will this laptop run Batman: Arkham City? Yes? Ok, I'm buying.) so after 7 years this thing is just old and outdated. But from my experience, Win10 is just good for new devices.

Okay, so I have MK 1-4 on pc now and I need to configure it to play properly with an XBOX Series X controller.

I downloaded JoyToKey and I was wondering if anyone has any configurations saved for such a thing.

I picked up Pathfinder: Kingmaker on Steam recently. I'm not too familiar with the lore of Pathfinder, but it's a pretty fun game so far.

I picked up Pathfinder: Kingmaker on Steam recently. I'm not too familiar with the lore of Pathfinder, but it's a pretty fun game so far.

Kingmaker is widely considered to be one of the best Adventure Paths that Paizo ever made - it has the unique distinction among Paizo APs of being a campaign that can last upwards of 5 years if the players really take the wheel and make the game their own.

If you enjoyed the CRPG version of Kingmaker, another one of Paizo's APs is being adapted to that format right now. Wrath of the Righteous, which was the first AP to include mythic rules, takes players through the Worldwound and the Abyss. Think of it as a hardcore zealot paladin's wet dream. Loads of demon slaying and cleansing evil.

Get injected, not infected (intended to rhyme).

Why aren't there any Pill vaccines? What is it with YOU PEOPLE, and your damn needles?! Wish I had a job where I could legally stab people...

I already have a needle phobia, and the last surgery I just had, they made multiple attempt jabs. Thought there was a note on my file about gas anesthesia.

I have Agoraphobia, Social Distancing was a blessing. Masking? As a Mortal Kombat fan, I am ALL ABOUT Ninja Season.

Anyways, in positive news for myself I'm currently working on publishing a card game. Hopefully I'll have it going in the next couple months. Gotta get back in touch with the IP lawyer, said they couldn't help till I had something to show. They at least said the name wasn't taken.

Cards are almost finalized, just need to add the text, and icons to the template. I have Card Back art, Boxart. Easy peasy rules. Can't wait.

It was advice, not an instruction. Jab's probably more effective than the pill because of the type of virus it is. There's similar common illnesses where you can take medication though. I'm tattooed up too.

Cough mixture helps mild Covid symptoms, believe it or not, which is an oral solution different from pills and needles.

Never heard of a vaccine in pills. I also don't remember any vaccine I had injected into my blood... instead they inject it in a muscle.

Miltiple attempts... Well' interns have to learn on somebody. XD Plus, if you're in a hospital and unless it's a cave you will get a cannula and that's it. No one is going to give you miltiple injections in your vein. No one has time for it.

I heard something about that on the radio news the other day, but they specifically said it wasn't a replacement for vaccines.

Seems to do the same thing, not kill the plague while making everyone a typhoid mary.

Polio was ERADICATED, wasn't it? Aside from lab study samples.

For a species known to extinct a ton of other species, this situation seems a lil sus.

*Better add yes I know Cold/Flu haven't been wiped out, before someone takes this out of context.

I'm aware of that. Don't know how it is in Canada but in UK they're still rolling out 3rd jabs, regardless of this oral antiviral drug, which I believe will be available by the end of the year. If the vaccine was mixed with this pill I reckon there'd be seldom side effects.

Same With Germs and Sanitizer's. These Product's claim to fight against these infectious Thing's at Hand with Percentages for The Individual's Who Use Them Not Totally Wipe them out of Existance. : \

As for the Covid Vaccine's They're Still a Very Young Drug in Sciences Eyes and if They're Going to add a 3rd Shot That Will Enhance The other 2 I'll Be Gettin That One Aswell... If it is Necassary. Out of Love and Respect For My Parent's, Elder's and Children I See Every Day. I Wont Be Taking Chances With Their Lives Over Mine. Also IDK This But The pill you're talking bout could be a replacement in progress for the 3rd Shot That's Supposed to enhance The 1st 2. I Don't See anything Sus About it.

Edit: The 3rd Shot is Called A"Booster Shot" Not an Enhancer. Also I'm Quite Sure More Than 60% of The World's Population Has had Some other Form of "Booster Shot" in Their Life Too. Aswell as Chickenpox, Smallpox, Bird Flue, Polio or Tetanus. Again I Do Not See What The Fuss is About. TBH I Wouldnt Be Suprised if The Vaccine was added into The 1 Vaccinal Shot That Newborns Get For all of These in The Near Future Than Getting Booster's Threwout Their Life for all These infectious Diseases in (One Shot Spread out Segments) For all these Medicines.. Basically just addng The Covid Vaccine To all The other Vaccines Everbody Get's and the Covid Booster To The Booster Everybody Get's or Already Got.

Like Honestly What Do you Think all Those Shot's Were that you got as Children? Cuz I Really Did'nt Think They Were to make Light of Global Alerts and Thousand's of People Dieing on Social Media. Or Maybe Thats What The Media Was Prepared For IDK. Who Know's in the effed up place this world's Become. All I can say is GL All, Stay Safe, Respect Your Elder's and Guide our Children to be 100% Prepared For Whats to come...as I was Taught... "Prey For The Best! Be Prepared For The Worst!" Cuz You Might See This as a Common Cold Like Me, Because Your That Age. But I'd Be Damned if I'm Going To Let it Kill One of My Loved Ones That are at a Vulnerable Age Because I Was To Careless To Get a Shot or Let Them Know It's Not a Bad Idea too Get One For Everyone Especially The Young, The Elderly and People Who Around Them.

If people had obeyed the damn quarantine procedures, this would've been over in several months, and we wouldn't even need the vaccines. Unfortunately, people have been protesting, and flouting quarantine rules for hundreds of years. Seems to happen every major plague.

The economy would've taken a smaller hit than this dragged out bs we're in now. I blame the people clamoring to be crammed into clubs for their precious bawdy contact after the initial lockdowns ended, skirting quarantine/mask rules, and the constant fumbling by those in charge.

Not all unvaccinated are kooks, different people have different reasons. Various people can't take it because of legitimate health reasons, others are from populations the government has experimented on in the past so don't trust them.

I DO NOT AGREE WITH ANTIMASKERS/"CIVIL LIBERTIES" PROTESTERS. These are the people getting everyone sick, purposely coughing on people, congregating, and attacking others. The anti-government/anti-immigrant people who see conspiracies, and government abuse everywhere except where it actually is. There's plenty of government abuse of power, and worse unethical shit, but a piece of cloth is what they freak out over? I just assume it's an extension of the prepandemic muslim hate. I do not outright believe conspiracy theories, I merely keep them in mind, and track possible evidence for/against. "Hear all, trust nothing." - FRoA 190. Also, I'm not an Anarchist, I'm anti-corruption.
