#12 grahpics card upgrade in Hardware

If you have a Micro Center in your area and you want a 1060 I would suggest checking there. I was just there a few days ago and they seemed to have plenty of 1060s, at least the 6GB variant (which I would choose over the 3GB just cause it's not that much more for the benefit). All normal prices. It seemed to me that it was really lucky, but who knows?

#4 Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in Other Games

I think it's interesting how they've gone from creating a third slightly different game (Yellow, Crystal, etc.) into creating two slightly different games. I guess they're continuing the trend from gen 5. Black and White 2 were really cool though, and actually felt worth buying a whole new game to me with all the added features. It made gen 5 one of my favorites. I don't get the hate that B2/W2 received when a game like Emerald was a lot less different from the original game it was based off of, and yet it got so much praise.

I really hope that US/UM are going to be as different from S/M as Black 2 and White 2 were from their parent games. I loved gen 7 a lot, and I really hope it can make me love it more.

#19 D&D and Other Tabletops in Other Games

I've been playing with the same group for four years or so, since high school. We started with D&D 2nd Advanced on the recommendation of our history teacher, and have moved to 5e since. The whole balance change of combat from 2nd to 5th is really a roller coaster, but we've adjusted.

I also played Call of Cthulhu with some Germans, that was pretty fun. I don't think I got a great idea of how it's played since we only had a short one-session campaign. They seem to like it more than D&D, which certainly has some flaws. I'd be willing to try it out some more.

#299 sigafoo tf2 league in TF2 General Discussion
springrollsmore classes being played is not inherently less restricting, if anything highlander is the one true gamemode to let you know that there are situations where your main is complete and utter dogass, assuming your main isn't one of the core 6's classes or sniper.

It's something that you (unfortunately) figure out only when you've played the class for long enough. 5 seasons of playing Engineer has got to be the worst long-term decisions I've made, and at this point I don't have much motivation to take it seriously anymore. Highlander seems to me like a friendly beacon of hope to people who don't want to give up the chance that they can play their favorite class, but after a while a while I see them get bored with it. I can't tell you how many specialist class mains I hear get frustrated with themselves after they have played the class for forever, and either hit the skill ceiling or realize the repetitiveness. It's a shame that newer players can't experience that beforehand.

Don't get me wrong, I still love Highlander, I just can't continue convincing myself it's a better representation of TF2 than 6s anymore.

#206 sigafoo tf2 league in TF2 General Discussion

I'm confused. Is the target audience of this 6s players, HL players, casual players, or a combination of the three? It's pretty obvious that the only way 6s players are gonna play this is easy money, so I guess the only people this potentially appeals to is the HL and casual players.

Now I play both HL and 6s, but I really only care about the success of 6s. It's not like HL is going anywhere and it kind of draws the small playerbase actually interested in competitive away from 6s. I mean ideally HL should just die but the constant feed of new and old players wanting to play their specialist class full-time keeps it alive. And although we can all hope that people are going to just accept that you have to play one of four classes in order to play competitve, the reality is a large part of the casual community doesn't want to play a format like that (crucify me).

It would be really great if this killed and replaced HL, it seems to promote a better transition to 6s and 4 less players to start a match is good. I just don't see it happening without talking some sense into the HL community. If I were Sigafoo I would try to get support from notable HL players to change the "you can still play Pyro, Spy and Engineer" format to this. Attempting to appeal to everyone obviously isn't going to work.

I liked the subtle mentions of Southeast Asia, don't remember learning about that in my high school history course.

#404 TF2 benchmarks in TF2 General Discussion

Has anyone taken a look at Windows 10 "Game Mode?" It seems to make a notable impact only in the case of several background processes clogging your system, which could be interesting for streamers, or people who don't like to close other programs when running the game.

#20 Looking for cool RPGs in Other Games

The first two Golden Sun games are really solid handheld RPGs that have an interesting combat system and look really good for GBA games. The flavor text about what's in the ovens of each house is notable.

The Fire Emblem series isn't really your "traditional" RPG, but sort of like a cross between Pokemon and Advance Wars(?) There's about 17 games in the series or something like that, I would recommend trying out the first one that was released in the US (known as simply "Fire Emblem," the 2D combat animations are bangin') for the GBA, or Awakening for the 3DS.

Earthbound/Mother 3 are classics. The combat is pretty unique, but the world and story are really what's charming.

Sorry for all 2D Nintendo games, didn't play anything else when I was a kid ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
