  1. @InfinitThat sounds amazing! I’ve always wanted to take a European holiday, but haven’t had the opportunity. My wife spent a semester of college studying in Spain and her descriptions make it sound that much more attractive. Some day, I hope!
  2. So, after 2.5 years in Tennessee, my wife and I are moving back home to PA. The distance from family was just too much and buying a house in the greater Nashville/Murfreesboro area is becoming more unattainable by the day. My wife has decided that the WFH lifestyle is what she wants. She's just more productive without everyone interrupting her. After helping take her team to the two most profitable (and award winning!) years her company has ever had, they decided that WFH wasn't for them. That made the decision a lot easier. The timing was wild for me, as I saw a posting for what amounts to my old job (they've changed the title and a few of the responsibilities, but it's basically the same) soon after we decided to move. Applied immediately and managed to walk back into the organization getting paid *more* than when I left! She's in the interview process for multiple WFH spots with publishers, so everything seems to be going well there, too. I'm a little sad that things never really clicked for us in Tennessee, but we moved here in...January 2020. The timing could not have been worse if we tried. I'm not sure we fit in here even if the world hadn't gone to shit, but seeing the local reaction to a global pandemic made us both aware that this was never going to be "home," for us. It was just a matter of time. If I'm being honest, the only things I'll really miss are the food and the mild winters. The past week or so has been a blur of paperwork and clearances and packing and that sort of fun stuff. We'll be making a pit stop at my in-laws while we look for a place. Not ideal, but it is rent free and they have the space. I'm just happy for a little light at the end of what's been a really dark 28 months or so...
  3. I’ve put so much more time into this than I ever have another From game, but I think I’ve hit the wall. I finally took down the boss that guards the door to the Capital, but it took so damn long. If y’all can dodge his lightning attacks, you are far better gamers than me! I approach so much of the exploration with a sense of awe, but really, I don’t think I could say that I’m having *fun*. And I know that’s a me thing rather than a fault with the game.
  4. Warrior Wrestling put this up yesterday. Worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.
  5. This may or may not be "new" to a lot of folks here, but I watched it for the first time today and...holy shit! One of my favorite matches ever. I think I like it more than the Dog Collar match, too.
  6. I am terrible at this game. Still enjoying it. I’ve made it through Stormveil and started mucking about Raya Lucaria, but I may have hit my skill limit. Went back to exploring stuff I missed in Limgrave/Mistwood/Weeping Peninsula. I’m getting bodied by some of those bosses, too. I’m way overleveled for the area, but I’m just bad at the game. Not sure there’s ever been a franchise that I *wanted* to be good at more than the From games, but I lack the patience to excel at the combat. I’m around 40 hours, though, so I feel like I got my money’s worth even if I drop it tomorrow…
  7. I picked Borderlands 3 back up after not playing it since 2019. I had been stuck on the Agonizer 9000 boss (frustratingly so) and then life shit happened and I just dropped off of it. Figured I should finish it before the new one comes out. At any rate, I beat the boss first try, not even quite remembering the controls. So that was nice. This franchise has always felt real good to play. The writing is more miss than hit for me, but the actual loop of playing it is top notch. EDIT: The biggest pain in the ass was going through my inventory and trying to clean out the junk. It’s been so long that I’ve no idea what some of the stats and modifiers mean, so it was a struggle to remember why Id kept/favorited things that, to 2021 Shane, look like trash. So many useless sniper rifles!
  8. Isn’t Bucksnort, TN so small that they don’t even have census info for it?
  9. I wish this was in full, because what we get here looks great. Savage takes some real dumb bumps and, as always, wrestles like he was shot out of a cannon.
  10. I am totally blanking on who the person above Condrey/Gordy is. I thought it was the good Baron at first, but he’s next to Warlord. Bundy? Robert Gibson’s eyes are haunting me. Not saying it’s inaccurate…just haunting.
  11. He’s literally going to become Svengoolie, then? You know…sure. He’s put in the work to get himself out there. Glad to see him reaping the benefits.
  12. Might just be a “me” thing, but the new alternate paths and bosses added to Repentance are much harder than the game I’d spent a few hundred hours with beforehand. More bullet spongey enemies. More bullet hell enemies. EDIT: I'd also say that part of the reason the game at least feels harder is that runs have gotten longer. Sometimes much longer. So it forces you to laser focus for an extended period, because if you slip up, one room can undo everything. That's always been the case, but I run into it a lot more since Repentance. There’s also been such a huge expansion in the item pool since earlier add ons that it’s become harder to “break the game” with some item synergies, just because you don’t see them as often. Still having a blast with Repentance and think it’s an amazing addition. It’s just made me feel less good at actually playing it! Hasn’t stopped from putting another 100+ hours into it (so far). It’s a game I’ve literally played daily for almost 2 years now.
