    I've been telling Gopher that he's β€˜doing it wrong!’ (i.e. slightly differently from the way I do it, which is self-evidently the only proper way) for years! 😁 But all joking aside, he does sometimes drive me bonkers with his A.D.D. style of gaming. Does this sound familiar: Gopher wonders aloud whether you can do X in this game, while the game explicitly tells him how to do X in bright neon green letters on the screen. Gopher takes a wild guess how one might do X in this game, while the game explicitly tells him how to do X in bright neon green letters on the screen. Gopher, having failed, decides that clearly you cannot do X in this game, while the game explicitly tells him how to do X in bright neon green letters on the screen. Repeat from step 1 with a different X.

    Outer Worlds Thoughts (Review?)

    I finished my first play through in about 52 hours (Normal mode). 46 quests completed 2 botched. Good game if a bit short. Replayability is moderate as it stands now. I have started a solo (no companions) game. I am sure I will do one more playthrough after this one but I doubt it will go beyond that. Combat is on the easy side even for someone like me with low skill. Loot is extreme there is so much stuff lying around that it defeats the item durability mechanic. I never purchased a consumable or ammo of any kind. About mid way through I switched from cautious sniper to spray and pray with combat rifles. Even with no aiming skill and just dumping rounds on target I never came close to running out. The AI is pretty weak making the sneak skill questionable. The story and writing are good if a bit predictable at times. Overall I really like the game I am hoping they will add more over time with DLC. If you are into combat this game really isn't it. The focus is all on the conversations and the stories in the terminals.

    I read a review that said it was great but very short, about 20 hours for that player. That's concerning to me, $60 for one week of play. Although the reviewer did say he saw some repeatability in it. I just pre-order Red Dead Redemption 2 for the PC, I've heard good things there.

    Google really seems to be cracking down on content providers. This whole soundtrack think is the issue. Music providers are not getting paid and that sucks. Google needs to fix this and pay the musicians that bring our games to life. Musicians are not second rate citizens and are every bit as important as a games main characters. (((PAY THEM GOOGLE))) stop busting the content providers it is not their fault.

    Hello. Thank you for the guide. I am facing a strange problem. All the text in the Menu, Dialogue Boxes are squished. There is no space between the items in them. Any idea why this is happening and how to solve it?

    I don't play The Elders Scroll Online but I am glad their music has fans. This is quite beautiful. It says it is the end credits I did not think the ES online had an ending? So I don't know about that. Either way this fan based song is beautiful I hope you enjoy it.

    That would be logical ... however I can take the 1080 Ti and put it in my other system (from which it came out of (in working state)) and it works fine there, detected as a GTX 1080 Ti. So just to recap the GTX 980 works fine in both Old and new system, the 1080 Ti works in old system but not new. Now a difference is the MOBO and Win 10 vs Win 7. I have Win 7 in the old system and have installed Win 10 in the new system. I think it's the MOBO and or BOIS... why? I don't think it's Win10 Because the POST does not even get to Win 10 Boot, the Mother Board BIOS is what is not finding the video card. And remember the MOBO/BIOS finds the GTX980 on PCIe Slot #1 (so it's not a dead slot) and the GTX 1080 Ti does work in the other system... So it just about has to be the BIOS??? Anyway, I took it to Micro Center today, felt like I was leaving my child at the doctors πŸ™ . They said they should let me know something by Friday. Looking on the bright side, this extra time will give Rockstar time to fix more of the issues with RDR 2 .

    building my new PC

    UPDATE: The Build from Hell So it's not working..completely. Got all the parts, assembled them the Video card (GTX 1080 Ti) is not detected. Post beep 1 then 3 short. Checked everything... all looks good. I moved DP cable to MoBo onboard Display, Intel UHD Graphics 360, installed Win 10... did updates and all. All good there. Here's my notes, so when I call ASUS for trouble shooting, I have the story. Building new desktop I am re-using my old GTX 1080 Ti. It works in my old system, I have tested and re-tested it works! The old system has a EVGA 750 PSU. Setting up the new system with all new EVGA 750 PSU, Z390-E MOBO, I9 9900K CPU, water cooled CPU. M.2 NVME Drive (boot drive) I installed the Video card (1080 Ti), check power cables, double checked by now I have removed and installed this damn card 6 times. When I start up the computer, I get post beep, then 1 long beep and 3 short beeps, Meaning no VGA display detected. I have: Changed out PSU with a new EVGA 850 PSU (just in case it was under powered) Updated BIOS Install another GTX 980 Ti (it works fine) Install "Geforce Experience" for the 980 with Drivers (all good) re-installed the GTX 1080 Ti (did not detect, POST 1 long and 3 short beeps) reinstalled the new EVGA 750 PSU & reinstalled GTX 980 Ti (works fine) Installed the GTX 1080 Ti back in to old system... it works fine. Read online about enabling "Above 4G Decoding", which I did , and still nothing. So tomorrow, back to micro Center... pay $40 for this to be someone else headache. It pisses me off because I can put the GTX 980 in it, and it works, I can put the GTX 1080 back in my old system and it works... If you have any thoughts let me know I will be taking this to the shop around 12 noon EST tomorrow. This is the last build I will be doing.

    Outer Worlds Advice (Spoilers)

    OK I figured it out its a game mechanic regarding reputation. The faction controlling this district was one negative action away from becoming angry with me so killing even one mech pushed the district over the edge.

    Just about any open world game can get new areas or continents or even planets. I remember a DLC which was short lived because it was so oddball that allowed a player to go from Skyrim to a moon.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Question

    Hello, So has anyone here played the RDR 2 (Console, I am not talking online thing)? I purchased the PC version and am looking forward to having it carry me through until April 2020. But I have some questions... the main question is what is this Single Player and Story Mode ? Is Single player more of a just play around not to worry about the quest and the Story Mode more of follow the quest but still be an open world? I don't understand.

    I've been watching OxHorns LP of this game and the color was so messed up the game looked like a cartoon. Coll Carnages LP was not much better. Ox just caught it. Turned out his capture card really super saturated the recording.

    Another album up. Although this is a David Smith Band... I worked on it ... so it is another of my projects. And if anyone is interested... that is me on the right.

    building my new PC

    So now I am reading in the ASUS forums, that a few other people have had issues with 1080 Ti and 2070/2080 and this mother Board, when they also have an M.2 drive install in M.2 slot 1, but it's not confirmed. One guy had the issue and solved it by moving the M.2 drive (card) to the slot #2 ... something about when you use M.2 slot #1 on the mother board it lowers the PCIe slot 1 to a 8 instead of 16. but another person said theirs was working fine in that configuration. I am going to give it until Saturday before I start by something new and demand my money back on this crap... if they can't fix it.
