Speaking of, I picked up the original KOTOR off the MS store for 10 bucks. It's amazing how good the game still holds up. Currently doing a dark side playthrough. Might switch over to a light side one when I'm done. Already put 12 hours into it in 4 days.

Unravel Two is an amazing parent/kid game. Great gameplay that makes you think, and beautiful graphics.

shafnutz05 Any tips on beating the Lynels in BOTW? I can crush the red ones easily. I tried to fight a white one and got my ass handed to me. I think I read on here you fought one and won.

Also, down to just 1 more side quest (the one you have to follow the letter from that Zora girl), and one Shrine quest (the Red Moon one), and need 8 more shrines overall. Also down to 4 more memories I need to find.

I only need 31 more pics too for the album, and it's made up of 23 weapons and 8 enemies. Got everything else.

This is just such a fun game. Nothing is linear and you make the path what you want.
Nice! TWC covered it really well. Also make extensive use of Stasis Plus.

Looking to expand our Switch catalog - which right now is Mario Party and Luigi's Mansion.

Suggestions? Multi-player is a plus. Main user is 7 years old.
My daughter is seven and we just got Yoshi's Crafted World for Christmas...that game is a lot of fun.

Oh yeah, that was what I was forgetting... you hit them w/ stasis plus at the right time. that is what gives you the opening to bust them in the face with the arrow, then you can mount them and slash the hell out of them.

You have to be careful though - there is a certain area where the arrow will fully stun them, and the rest will just do a bit of dmg. You need to quickly mount or gtfo depending on how it goes.

Thanks fellas. I fount the blue one at the first guardhouse at the castle. I followed what you guys said and I wooped his ass pretty good. Sucks he doesn't drop his weapons in there. Also, wearing the solder armor upgraded to 4 stars helps as well as it protects pretty well.

I want to find a blue one out in the field so I can get some weapons, etc. Once I get comfortable with the blue ones I'll move onto fighting a white one.

What case are you using?

I'm going to do a new build probably over the summer, once supply problems hopefully stabilize (and get the specs for BF6). I may start to slowly buy components to keep the cost spread out over several months. The family CFO isn't pleased with thousand dollar plus credit card bills for her degenerate husband's gaming PC. :lol:

I'm not doing RGB, so I'm looking at something like this: https://www.newegg.com/black-fractal-de ... klink=true

Let me know how the case works, build wise. I have two mid 2010s cases that suck balls to work with because of HDD cages, no cable management, and shite air flow. I've done two full upgrades with this one case, but it nearly killed me last time. Stripped one of the spacers, and then got the whole motherboard in, I discovered (or remembered) that there are two sizes of spacers because of weird indentations in the case (airflow? it's dopey). What a pain in the ass.

Well, poop.

'Kerbal Space Program 2' now launching in 2022

Have you played Outer Wilds? Not Outer Worlds, Outer Wilds. It's not as technical as Kerbal, but it has that physics-based space travel, that might hold you over for a little bit.

I just beat a white Lynel last night. I think depending on the weapon, etc, some are easier than others.

Also found out that as you progress in the game, enemies upgrade. So outside of the blue Lynel in the first gate house and the red one up by Zora falls, all other Lynels have been upgraded to white in the game, and if I continue to beat them and also upgrade my Barbaian armor, those white ones will eventually turn into Silver.

It's the same for Moblins, etc.

Finally, I finished the last Shrine and Side quest, so those are all done.

So on my list before Gannon, I want to find my last 8 shrines (I know where 3 are, just having trouble getting to them as they have hidden passages), get my last 4 memories, and just upgrade a few things. I still have like 31 more pics I need for the album, but some will be difficult as they are weapons that lessor Lynel use and they are no longer around. Others are Guardian weapons I still need to buy.

I think I will be doing the DLC just to try those additional side quests etc. I'm not ready to drop the game and move on yet, although I'm getting close.

I purchased a pre-built so luckily I didn't have to source anything. Only concern is the 500w psu so may need to upgrade that. Also a 512 gb ssd and 1tb hdd so those might need a buff as well. Otherwise it should be a solid machine.

Speaking of MK, I don't know why Nintendo didn't do additional tracks as DLC in MK8. They have so many tracks over the years, you'd think it wouldn't be too hard to do. I'm also still a touch bitter that Coconut Mall wasn't one of the Wii tracks that made it.

This is a bit of an odd question, but has anyone thought of getting an cover for the Xbox LED on the controller? It's wildly distracting when you play at night.

I have an elite controller and it let's me basically turn that LED off. Don't think there is anything for the regular controller
