Still no power so hopefully tomorrow. Sigh

I'm pretty sure I'm back in business tonight. I'm going to load up the single player when I get home, but if anyone wants to hit multiplayer I should be around. :horse:

My internet is a bit wonky today. They didn't 100% repair everything so that probably has something to do with it. Tried to play a round of pubg and was warping all over the place.

It's been a while since I uploaded a gameplay video. Octavious joined us last night and I think he was wondering just what he got himself into by joining us. :)

Can Bob do a flip? Yes. Yes he can.



Blackhawk asks the age old question, Why Are The Police After ME?

For full effect, turn it up enough that you can hear the music. It punctuates the action rather nicely and is a special bonus if you are a fan of The Blues Brothers.

Yeah, I got the notification from YouTube a couple minutes ago.

Maybe creating my own GTA Radio Station wasn't a good idea if I plan to post videos. Even when they are unlisted.

Edit: I'm sure those four, five if I'm lucky, views are really going to cause them heartburn.

I played some Vermintide 2 with my son yesterday and checked out the new daily quests and challenges. The challenges are basically achievements. Kill a warpfire thrower before they fire, finish X boss with Y character, etc. Each one gives you a commendation chest (the ones that scale.) Many of them are retroactive. I probably got 20 chests just by logging in.

Quests are daily. The ones I saw were 'collect four tomes', 'complete three missions in quick play', 'kill three bosses', and 'collect three grimoires.' Those gave you an emperor's chest, which is the highest type of chest.

Oh, and every boss now drops two loot dice when they die.

I think I now have 30 commendation chests to open. Madness.

Are you sure about the loot dice? I got two yesterday when I killed the warlord, but I don't remember getting any a few other times recently.

Was fun playing with you guys. Certainly a departure from playing pubg. Do you guys still play Siege?

Karen, Bob, and I played a bit of Siege on Saturday.

Blackhawk had to delete his copy to make room for GTA5 but I was thinking about sending him an old 2TB drive that I have sitting around unused.

Especially since I've been considering picking up State of Decay 2 and seeing if the group would be interested in playing that since my wife would be able to join us from the XBox.

I've been firing up Siege occasionally. My skills got really rusty from my enforced downtime. Though Destiny 2 seems to have helped get them back up.

I've got storage (well, some), just not SSD storage. I try to only play multiplayer games off of my SSD rather than make everyone else wait while I load.

From what I've read, yes. Every boss should drop two, and the white rat should drop three.

I have state of decay 2. I was waiting for some patches before I started to really get into it. Sounded like they already dropped a big one.

Played some more V2 today. Remember how, after killing Burblespew, you had to run halfway across town to get to the exit? They shortened that to about two blocks.

Nope. Not enough coin. I also haven't seen the new map yet. Though, I only played 2 rounds, so that's not too surprising.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it tonight. I ended up getting called out of town all day yesterday, and tomorrow I'll have stuff going on. That means I need to make up several days of stuff today and Saturday.

If I get enough done, I'll join late. If not, see you next time.

Smoothly. That's how.

I finally got around to uploading a couple of months worth of clips.

I very nearly nailed the dismount.



This is how you conserve ammunition.



Well, at least we're not wanted anymore. Or alive.



Teaching Bob how to fly. Bob had to repeat the first lesson.



An efficient way of dealing with the competition.



"We're Emergency Services. We're here to help!"



I need to stay away from the green juice. I'm starting to see things.



Bob decides he doesn't need his backup afterall.



And this one of Brian. The alternate point of view I promised so long ago.

For Rainbow 6 Siege, check your loadout for your operators. Somehow mine all got set to base -- only iron sights, no muzzle modifiers, etc.
