  1. The exact graphics card I wanted was on sale from amazon deal of the day yesterday and I didn't realize until it was sold out. x_x

      Ouch. How much would you have saved?

    2. Sledgstone

      I was looking at spending around $150, but this deal was $179 with no rebate. $40 off from amazon, regular $220 I think. I've seen it on other sites for around $199 on sale.

  2. After 2 days into the new GW2 pvp league system I've decided to stop trying for this legendary back piece. I'll still do a pvp round here and there for my dungeon reward track, but the 3 matches per day requirement, the horrible balance, 50/50 forced win loss ratio and queue times.. its just not worth the time investment. I could make 2 other regular legendaries in the same span of time.

      And only 7 from getting silver. 1 from getting bronze on all of them in VB. So I'don't have to gold 4 of them -_-. And I've golded all the easy ones. I'd probably have to gold 5 because I doubt I'll get silver on shooting gallery.

  3. I played the division beta for a bit yesterday. Had alot of fun with it, but I think I'm going to hold off on buying it at launch. I'll be getting my taxes any day now, but I need to pay for a new graphics card, my dog getting fixed and more fuel oil for my furnace. x_x

      Nice. What graphics card are you planning on getting? I read the new nvidia maxwell cards coming out are going to blow the existing ones out of the water and drop their prices. My goal is to find a geforce gtx 960 4gb for around $150.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      My friend suggested the GeForce GTX 980 4GB G1 Gaming card. It's a little over $500 but I think it'll be a good investment, even with the new changes coming about.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Yeah thats a beastly card. I'm pretty certain thats the card everyone recommends for 4k gaming. I mostly want to go with the 960 so I wont have to upgrade my power supply. lol. My old computer was so damn loud with fans that I'd rather have a more budget card with less overall noise.

  4. I defeated Zhatain in GW2 today. lol. I owned the game for over a year and finally decided to beat the campain. XD It felt satisfying, but the end fight was so easy because it was nerfed so solo players can beat it.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      After getting the mastery point from beating it and a couple LS2 chapters, I now have auto loot. Such a great QoL experience. :D

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      The mordy fight is def more challanging than Zhatain. It also adds a very big emotional punch in the gut mid way.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Cool. I'll get that done soon. My necro entered dragon stand for the first time last night.

  5. I watched Flashpoint on netflix over the last couple weeks. Really good series. If not for the random police in uniforms in different scenes, you'd never realize it was based in Canada. A bit of a culture shock how similar Canada really is to the US. If our SWAT was the same as thier SRU, I bet homicide rates would be much lower here.

  6. I finished that damn fractal precursor back piece last night. :D and when I equipped it, its bugged to all hell because its stiff like cardboard and clips into the ground from over my shoulders whenever I mine a node. x_x lmao.

  7. Last night I unlocked the next step to the legendary fractal backpiece precursor.. and there it was again to torment me. Cliffside challenge mote level 20+. I thought I did it before but nope.. Took an hour and 2 attempts at the last boss, but I got it done. That dungeon is cool on low levels but a bastard higher up.

  8. I got my Dragon Hunter unlocked last night. Those damage modifiers.. wtf. O_O

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Probably... but only because of PVP -_-; But maybe not since Guard is basically a dungeon/fractal favorite. Not a lot of people like it in PvP despite it's wrecking power. I guess I'll keep the slow mo movement because of that. If anything it might get buffed for raids! XD

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      "ZOMG YOU HAS PERM SWIFTNESS!!!!" Yeah trying running Staff Retreat/Save Yourselves in PvP ass... :P

  9. DX's accomplishment gave me the motivation to do my final push for my own Twilight sword. And now it's mine! :D

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      It's so beautiful. I hope they make a long bow as worthy.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Now that we both have twilight anet will do another visual noise nerf and take away our bling. ;_; if they did that so many ppl would rage. A long bow with these effects would be amazing.

  10. El Rey network is having a Godzilla marathon for Christmas. Hell yes. ^_^

  11. 10k drinks to get my own personal flurry in Guild Wars 2.. The bell choir grind is real. x_x

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I got my own personal flurry! :D

  12. My cat Ditto passed away today. He was a three legged 16 year old that lived an amazing life.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      :( Oh not Ditto. Poor guy but at least he had a loving place to live until he passed on.

  13. I have a new appreciation for Warrior's Berserker specialization in PvE mode. It sucks horrible in pvp but now that I'm using a high dps build its insane how much dps I'm doing in fractals now. Every basic attack is basically 20k hit aoes at a minimum not counting my zerker bursts. XD

  14. I just ordered the logitech G710 from Bestbuy for $49 and free shipping. I had no idea it was on sale all weekend and I kept refreshing the page all day for it to become available for shipping again. I got it mostly for my work. I type around 90+ wpm and since I started working from home a couple months ago the keyboard i'm using now is already getting beat to hell.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      And this will be great for Guild Wars 2. :D

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I got my keyboard. This thing is awesome. So loud, but so damn good. ^__^

  15. My older brother finally bought a ps4 and a bunch of games. Until I get battlefront the only game I have that we can pay together us bf4. Got 3 or so rounds of conquest in and holy crap I forgot how fun that game is. I'm be on bf4 more often now.

      That's the problem he'll face being low level. If he doesn't mind the same map over and over get him into a Metro only server with 400% tickets. It's an awesome way to level quickly but you'll have to contend with 130's and above. It's all I play now when I get on

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Ah that's a good point. I'll get him in one of those rounds next time.

  16. I got my puppy today. :D Elsa is a little puff ball of love. ^_^

  17. I want to buy battlefront, but if I only have enough cash for one game, I'll end up buying Starcraft 2 legacy of the void. That campaign is calling to me.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      No matter what, your time will be consumed by the hunt for the fractal tonic! X'D

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Heh, I'm only one mission in but I'd definitely say it's the better choice. Then again Battlefront is out on Tuesday and that's probably all I'll be doing from then on.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That damn fractal tonic. I'm saving all my fractal daily chests for the december drop table update. x_x Starcraft, fractal tonic, battlefront... I feel like i'm being torn into 3 directions. well, i would feel like that if i had the money to buy those 2 games. Instead i'll be torn in 2 directions. New puppy and fractal tonic. XD

  18. I'll be picking up a pomeranian puppy 1 month from now thanks to lady's mom. :D

    1. Eppy

      Eppy

      daw so coot

  19. We had to put our 10 year old pomeranian Nora to sleep last night. She was an amazing girl. I'll miss her. :(

  20. I damaged my ulnar nerve in both my elbows. Random numbness in my fingers at night and tingling numbness during the day. Its been 2 weeks since it's started to improve. Could take up to 6 months to fully heal. X_x

      According to my doctor its because I type all day for work. I had to much pressure on my elbows from my office chair. I can't use arm rests anymore and I had to change my sitting posture. x_x One day I woke up and my left arm was completely limp. I could pick it up and drop it like dead weight with my other hand. Scared the crap out of me. x_x I kept rubbing the arm and it eventually did full pins and needles feelings and then intense pain. wtf. Since then I had the same thing happen to b...

      Sledgstone

      both my hands a couple times and my pinky and ring fingers even more. Its been 8 days since my last full numbness episode. My left hand still has some partial numbness.

  21. GW2 raids are going to be a nice change from what Bungie did with Destiny. :D

  22. Woke up this morning sick and thought I had salmonella poising.. All my symptoms have cleared up throughout the day, but I still have vertigo when I lay down.. wtf. x_x

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Sounds like you need some meclozine.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      It could be a inner ear issue that is balancing itself out... its crazy how an ear problem can wreck your shit and make you feel like you're dying. I had minor vertigo for 3 months and I thought I was dying.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Lady has some of those pills from her last inner ear infection and they do help. It's crazy how some horrible this dizziness can make me feel. X_x

  23. I watched all of star trek enterprise last month.. Scott Bakula should have never been in this.. he was a horrible captain and in almost every episode he always has a sweaty shirt stained out of breath scene that disgusts me. That sweaty bastard. X_x

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Hmmm, I think that's why I liked Archer. He wasn't bogged down by the rules and was willing to make choices he felt was necessary to further, sadly, humanity's goals in space. I will admit he also dragged the series down quite a bit (more so in later seasons) but overall I thought he was a generally well thought out character. Heh, you should play STO Sledge if you like the Defiant. It's got an extremely powerful little brother called the Phantom Intel Escort and it's a da...

      ...mn fine ship (which will never be seen in any show unless they decide to make another Star Trek series set in the original universe). Sadly I turned mine in for a bigger badder ship known as the Manticore Heavy Destroyer but that Phantom is still a nice ship (and it comes with cloaking too). The wonders a 30 some year jump in the timeline does for technology (STO takes place 30 some years after the event of Star Trek Nemesis (about 22 years after the destruction of Romulus)).

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I wish I had more time for MMOs. I would jump all over STO and SWO for my scifi fix.

  24. 1 more season of house left.. I got a papercut last night. I'm sure I'll be on the verge of death in 1 month now.. misdiagnosed with Wilson's disease, but actually have a staff infection in the brain and need a liver transplant. x_x

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'm skipping the last season of House. I have too much anxiety to keep watching medical dramas. x_x I think I might have cancer, neurological issues and other problems. x_x

  25. Almost done with my Arrow marathon.. Such a good show. 3 episodes left until I'm caught up.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Season 3 finale as decent. No cliffhanger this time, but a good closure to the story arc.. The flash cameo seemed almost pointless to me, kind of portrayed flash as a dick with no time on his hands. wtf. -_-
