Re: Confessions: It's less personal than last time

I think I played for 4 or 5 months, then cancelled. When classic launched I subscribed for a month to remember the hell that was Vanilla. I got to level 10 or so and stopped playing classic in favor of BfA, solo'ing old raid content I'd never seen and completing achievements. That lasted a couple of...

Re: Cutting the Cord

We tried the $20/mo Sling TV offering when they first launched. At this point it should be a pretty solid offering if you don't need sports or extras. When they launched the app was a bit buggy but it mostly worked. By now it should be stable. I liked their take on live vs DVR. Each network had a li...

Re: Cutting the Cord

When my son was born and the exhaustion set in we went from watching TV 5-6 hours an evening to maybe an hour a week. At the time we were paying ~$100/mo for DirecTV + $9/mo for Netflix and it seemed pretty pointless. I don't watch sports and most of our favorite shows were already on Netflix so we ...

Re: Randomness

It's nothing like Raising Arizona, thankfully. It was quite good. My son loved it. Little kid gains magical powers and single Mom has to figure out how to raise and protect him while uncovering how it happened in the first place.

Re: WoW Classic

The completionist in me enjoys WoW Retail for solo exploring all of the old content I skipped after I stopped raiding. Collecting mounts and stuff like that. I burn out on it every few months and take a month or 2 off. Sadly it's hard for me to get into video games these days. I enjoyed the crap out...

Re: WoW Classic

I ended up rolling a human mage on Ashkandi out of curiosity. In the couple hours it took to get to level 7, Vanilla is just as shitty as I remembered. Endless walking followed by quick fights with lots of drinking between. I don't see the allure.

Re: Randomness

I feel like the Japanese have a service company for everything. I watched a youtube video featuring a couple that hired a Japanese moving company...The service was insane. Handled packing and everything even down to removing ceiling lights from the apartment at the end. Before doing anything they co...

Re: WoW Classic

I've thought about it but don't particularly remember vanilla game play all that fondly. The nostalgia for me comes from quality game time with close friends who have mostly drifted apart. I was in college when WoW came out and there were 5 or 6 of us that hung out all day, then met up in SWG/CoH/Wo...

Re: Son of Rantettes & Ravettes

Rave/Rant: Looks like we might finally start building a house on our land soon. This assumes the appraisal on the land + house comes out where I need it and the bank will loan us an obscene amount of money.

Re: When did you join RLC?

Not the youngest. May 2007 here. I was reading the comic in 2001 I think but hadn't really joined any forums at that point. These days I rarely have time for more than a cursory glance at the forum every few days.

Re: The Guns and Weapons Thread

Sounds like a good brush gun. The 1-4 optic is a beautiful thing. I put a Trijicon TR-24g 1-4x24 with the BAC reticle (green triangle on a stick) on one of my guns and it's awesome. Selling them always sucks but you can always buy more later. I decided not to free float the handguards on this one so...

Re: The Guns and Weapons Thread

You didn't notice anything odd about that lower, like maybe the AK mag? PSA KS-47 pistol lower :D. I don't currently have anything that shoots 7.62x39 and figured it'd be a fun truck gun. I'm also planning an m92 PAP ak pistol build or I might just buy a PSA AK-P once AK Operator's Union signs off o...
