    City of Heroes has actually been online for years....

    So, I managed to figure out what my issue is and a work around solution for it. I play in Windowed mode, with it maximized and what seems to be happening is that when I zone the screen ends up getting desynced and doesn't load properly. If I Refresh my desktop, this fixes it and its promptly...

    It's cool, I figured as much. I'm gonna think on it for a bit, to build or just buy a pre-built. One thing I did want to find out more about is the idea of having the 2 hard drives. I get the benefit of having an SSD to do the main performance while having a large regular hard drive for...

    Meh, I'm not gonna lie. I honestly haven't paid any attention to hardware development over the years at all, I just want my machine to run and thats just fine. I don't have the money to constantly upgrade every time a new thing comes out. Shit, i know 1TB is probably not much anymore since my...

    City of Heroes has actually been online for years....

    Eh, ended up still happening, but I think its more to do with my computer just showing its age. I'm able to move around in the zones themselves fine, it jsut seems it takes too long to load the larger ones. Might be time to look at upgrading the rig. Gonna post in the tech forum and see if...

    So, I've been thinking its time I look at upgrading my computer. Its got a couple years on it now so was hoping to get some advise for just upgrading parts versus buying a whole new system. My current system is an Alienware Aurora with Intel Core i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz processor 6GB RAM (one 4GB...

    I've re-validated the files twice now, doesn't seem to help. Getting late so I may just try tomorrow and see if its fixed itself, if not I'll try the GMs.

    City of Heroes has actually been online for years....

    Fired this up and I've run into a frustrating issue where my characters get stuck trying to zone into Port Oakes from Mercy Isle. Progress bar zips to 40% full then just sits there till it kicks me for inactivity. Not sure what I can do to fix it.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Honestly, I just look at the Time Travel details as they needed to explain just enough for the movie to work, while constantly beating it into the audiences heads that "Hey, Time Travel is dangerous" so that people aren't sitting in theaters in any other Marvel movie going "Yo, sum1 call dat...

    Eh, there's plenty of stupidity to spread around, but its also a matter of them all having absolutely metric fucktons of hubris. Just sheer, unmitigated hubris that they are the powers-that-be and that whatever they want however they want it will be done and that they will never, ever get...

    I bet he does. its easy to say that he may never truly get his due for what he's done, but on the other hand, since the Democrats seem unable to change course, it may be sinking in that he may actually get in trouble, especially since Hillary will have no hesitation in tossing his ass under the...

    Smollet and the nigerian switcheroo

    Honestly, I really think this is the part that blew up in their faces. They weren't counting on the police to actually investigate the story fully; so when the police did, it all fell apart. They figured on the event happening and the police being too spread thin to fully run the story down...

    Adults are singing songs as part of some kind of resistance. These people truly have no self awareness to realize "....wait, just what in the everliving fuck am I doing?!" God damn, that's a powerful kind of stupid.

    One of the things you pick up on in reading Trump's books or if you listen to him talk is that he takes a massive amount of pride in what he does. Yes, there's some ego there too, but its mainly personal pride. And because of that, he wants to do things the right way, because he takes pride...

    There's a reason Obama and Hillary are suddenly no where to be found and the media seems to suddenly have no interest in what they think about the collapse of the Russia narrative. The Democrats in the House can bluster all they want, but they won't be able to try for Impeachment now and any...

    Honestly, none of them have the balls to do it, but they really should do this. Just plead Mea Culpa, take the heat and try to reboot. At this point, Mueller is done and is gonna try and slink away to the shadows while the dupes at SDNY and the Democrats in the House try their best to go even...

    Wasn't Roger Stone the one who all but dared Mueller to arrest him so he can tear him apart in court? If so, makes you wonder just how desperate Mueller is getting if he's willing to take that kind of risk.

    Far as Blue Mage is concerned, I have just dabbled in it. I assume the thought process was release it as a Limited job to see if/how badly the players can figure out how to abuse it. tweak it later on and buff it up to a full class once the dust settles and they see how it initially pans out...

    Got through the post-ARR questline and finally reached Heavensward. Almost makes me wish I had been playing back when it was new cause the end of the ARR questline was pretty crazy there. My warrior hit 60 just in the ARR content, so I'm leveling my Samurai with the HW MSQ. Figured it was...

    Yeah, I found the vendors in Mor Dhona, so I'm going to buy some armour from them to bump my ilevel up. Took a break form questing to unlock a bunch of the hard dungeons with the sidequests. Also got a quest to do the Ultima Weapon trial, not sure how hard it is now. Looks to be complicated...

    Finished the main ARR, just getting into the Post-ARR storylines now. I know it will take a bit before I hit Heavensward, so is there anything I should spend my tomestones on or should I just hoard them for now till more relevant content?

    Nah, won't work because they have said that you don't have to actually change at all, its only "How you feel!". Can't try and pin down what is man versus woman things or the wheels come off their whole FFA idealogy.

    Mid 40s now on my Warrior. Still got a good 25 days left on Free Trial before I'll need to sub. Got Summoner and Scholar unlocked so far. Might try and unlock Samurai at 50 if i can, MSQ is still down in the mid 20s. Will I level past 50 in the base game zones or do I stay at 50 till I move...

    I was leaning towards a ranged class only because I'm already playing melee as a tank. Wasnt sure how Archer/Bards were versus the caster classes. Thought about a Dark Knight but it sounds like they are getting reworked and don't unlock till I hit one of the expansion content so that may wait...

    Yeah, for $30 I think I might as well drop the cash and buy the full game. Not sure if Ill sub past the free trial month, but well see. Kinda liking Warrior so far. I often play paladins, but nothing beats smashing things with a giant two-hander!

    In the vein of the current conversation, I'm thinking about trying this out on the free trial. As far as soling, how are their tanks for solo leveling? Was thinking of starting with a beefy melee class, but wasn't sure how each of them play out versus levelling as a DPS. And, I see that you...
