This dude is a straight up spammer, posting his horseshit videos all over the fediverse.

I didn't even have any hype for this game because I don't do anything DnD related and I typically don't like how complicated CRPGs are, but this game has me by the balls and I constantly think about it. I find myself having to avoid some fights even on easy (those god damn phase spiders in the well at the goblin village) but it's so freakin' great either way. I played co-op on Friday with a friend who has been playing DnD for 30 years and he was impressed by my experimentation and creativity which is something I'm usually pretty poor at.

Bioware made the previous Baldur's Gate games so that makes sense lol

I've had a job posting up for 3 months in the Midwest USA for a couple of warehouse positions starting at $25 an hour and I'm barely even getting any applicants. We still have a few boomers and GenX in the warehouse but the millennials (like me) and GenZ went to college so they aren't looking for these jobs, at least around here. We're a very small company so the weird thing to me is that this is an easier warehouse than Amazon to work in, by far, and the Amazon hub 10 miles down the road has no problem staffing, even though they only pay $16.00/hr and their benefits sucks ass compared to what we offer. The average warehouse pay in my area for my industry is $18 an hour.

Yeah, probably. We have posts up on indeed and in the local papers but we're getting nothing worth following up on. And I don't think anyone hires recruiters to track down manual laborers.

I also would hire anything with a pulse since we can train them on the job, but they can't have a criminal record due to the clients we deal with and some work travel is required. It's also messy work -- fiberglass -- and a lot of people don't want to do that (and I don't blame them lol).

My user name is actually a Metal Gear Solid 2 reference lol

Depends what you mean by measure up. Baldur's Gate 3 is my first CRPG that I was able to stick with for more than an hour and I absolutely LOVE it, and that was before even trying co-op, which somehow made it even better. I'm hopelessly obsessed with it, to the point where I had all Sunday to myself while my wife napped off her hangover, and I opted to try to power through the rest of Final Fantasy 16, just hoping I could get to the end, so I can focus purely on BG3 with all of my gaming time. It would be nonsense to compare this game to Starfield (which I'm also very excited for) because they're such vastly different types of RPGs. I think this game sets the generational benchmark for RPG quality, but I don't think it's even going to be the highest selling RPG of the year if that's what benchmark we're using. I think for now and the foreseeable future it's certainly the benchmark for quality especially when it comes to your choices actually mattering.

Oh yeah I have no doubt that they will be, I just don't think they should be if we're strictly talking about just being RPGs because they're so different.

2 minutes! I've never played one of these games and I'll probably suck ass at it but I want to try all the same.

I got a quote yesterday for panels on my roof (in the US). $43,000. Fucking ludicrous

Yep lol it's laughable. Love your user icon, I use the N7 icon for a lot of different services.

I'd love to have one too but I live in the city now instead of the suburbs. My car is parked on a concrete pad in the alley behind my house, a good 80 feet from any electricity. I could probably charge at work though by just parking in the warehouse and plugging in to one of the many extension cords we have around.

I'm the VP so I'd better be able to get away with it lol

Sound like I'll just be sticking with Battlebit Remastered then.

Agreed, just touch up BF4 and re-release it. Until then, I'm playing Battlebit.

I visited Buffalo in March on the tail-end of our Niagara Falls trip on the CA said (and went to a Sabres game and some great bars/restaurants). I really loved the feel of the neighborhoods around the city there. We live in St. Louis, in a similarly old house to what we saw in Buffalo (ours was built in 1906, they're all brick here though). As you pointed out, there are houses on tree-lined streets here as well, and I'm within a mile's walk of 5 or 6 large parks that often host free concerts and other events, I can walk to a fair amount of bars and restaurants, and plenty of other things. The only real thing holding it back where I live is how car-centric the construction has been. I could walk to the Soulard district easily (less than a mile) but in order to do so, I have to cross a 5-lane road called Gravois, which has bad visibility in both directions, and people tend to run red lights there often. There's no protected pedestrian crossing and people get killed there every year by cars, so we usually just drive over there. The city is finally working on walk-ability and public transpo by extending the Metrolink commuter rail to go north/south, and by adding a protected bike lane on one of the main thoroughfares (Jefferson). We're also seeing the construction of a lot more mixed use buildings (apartments on the upper levels, retail on the ground floor) and that has been a very welcome addition. I feel like we moved from the suburbs to the city at exactly the right time, as there's additional (booming) growth in Midtown and Downtown West thanks to the addition of our MLS team and all the land they've revitalized, which has in turn attracted development to a previously fairly barren area.

I was going to install CoD: Cold War from PS+ on my PS5 since I wanted to check out the campaign but I'd never buy it. Fuckin 230 GB for that shit. I lol'd a bit and moved on to something else. So ridiculous.

iNeedScissors67,

The only games I'll bother keeping installed that are over 100gb are my ESO with all the addons on PC, and Star Wars Battlefront II on PS5, and only because my friends and I play co-op every Friday night. But it's still ludicrous. My most played game recently, Battlebit Remastered, is a whopping 3 GB lol.

I'd love to install solar panels, I have a flat rubber roof with no tree coverage that's perfect for it. A $35,000 upfront cost is an absolute nonstarter for me. I have it, but that's basically my entire emergency fund. If someone would pay me to have them installed, hell yeah, let's do it.

What are you Reading? (August 2023) (lemmy.world)

I’ve put together a collage of some books from last months What are you Reading? post. It’s mostly random, but the more discussion something gets the more it stands out to me. Going forward I’m going to make a new post every month to talk about what people are reading....

I'm reading the Wool omnibus from the library before I start watching Silo.

The even weirder thing was this coworker quit his job a week after the wedding.
