I’m going to have to buy one more Amiibo. They’re going to put out a Solid Snake.

I heard the WoW pre-patch is coming out tomorrow, so I reactivated my account for my typical 'play 1 month before and 3 months after each expansion then stop again'. I have a feeling this time I won't have as much time to get super into it like I usually do, but we'll see if that helps me enjoy the experience for longer or makes it not worth it at all.

Every 5 years I upgrade my gaming PC, which also functions as my code development and modeling PC. Just did it in January so I am enjoying playing games on 4K with all the settings at ultra.


Tried a controller during early assassins creed games; just couldn't get into it. Mouse and Keyboard for everything but Elite and MW. Even ARMA 3 I pilot helicopters with M+K.

I don't need anything, maybe a tablet.

You guys recommend any decent tablet?
It doesn't have to be super good. I need it mainly for youtube, browsing, and reading.

The android tablet market has been pretty barren recently. Ipads are always good if you can afford the price point.

The last android tablet I used was the nvidia shield but that's a couple of years old now. Played with the lower end kindle fire a bit but ended up selling it because the lag was unbearable compared to my ipad.
