    Could use a little help with my PC too...

    AMD just released a new processor with integrated graphics that seems to be pretty good for budget gaming. If you are still thinking about upgrading you might want to check it out. https://techreport.com/review/33235/amd-ryzen-3-2200g-and-ryzen-5-2400g-processors-reviewed

    D+D Maps

    In a similar vein https://twitter.com/unchartedatlas is a twitter bot that procedurally generates maps. Nothing quite as nice as these but its pretty cool.

    So if almost everything is 5 years old you might be able to squeeze into that price point. What I don't know is if it will be that much better. As Romans said decent video cards are hard to grab right now but if you try for something a little older or less powerful you might be able to find it. The problem is will cpu+motherboard+ram+video card at 500ish still be a decent enough upgrade. You might try using http://www.userbenchmark.com/PCBuilder to build out a current system profile then build out an upgrade system to see if it makes sense.

    Requesting Help: Spec a ~$1K PC

    I have a 1070 or maybe a 1080 that is working good. But thanks to the cryptocurrency miners getting any decent video card is super difficult right now.
  7. So PP is releasing a skirmish version of their rules called Company of Iron. Does anyone have a link to a decent preview or review?
  8. PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds Despite the cumbersome name, if you don't absolutely hate shooters you should buy this game. 100 people parachute out of an airplane and have to grab the randomly distributed loot and try to be the last person alive. Every few minutes the 8km x 8km map is constricted into smaller and smaller safe zones forcing conflict to occur. You can play solo, duo or a 3 or 4 man team. Playing this has been some of the most tense and fun gaming I have had in very long time. From slowly crawling through a wheat field hoping to not get sniped and trying to catch a glimpse of the other person you think is also crawling through your field to parachuting onto the same rooftop as someone else and trying to frantically punch them out while they try to frantically load the revolver they picked up. Its $30 in early access on Steam and actually is the 3rd most played game on Steam right now. 10/10

  11. Its the app of the week. Its a top down tactical game that seems decent enough so far.

    portable bluetooth speakers?

    I would echo andy's suggestion to go look at the The Wirecutter article. Based on their recs a few years ago i bought a UE Boom and its pretty great. Its rugged and I wouldn't hesitate to take it to the beach. If I was going to get another one I would get another UE something.

    Secrets of the Third Reich II KS https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/832150598/1949-sotr-ii-the-weird-wwii-miniatures-game?ref=nav_search I bought the book for the first edition a while ago. The setting is Weird War II. The intent was that you can make an army as weird as you want or not. You can just play infantry platoon vs infantry platoon or you can go with USA diesel powered terminators vs German werewolves and a mech. If I remember correctly the rules seem like they were based on 40k 3rd edition or so. I never actually got a chance to play it though so I maybe mistaken about the rules. The Incursion board game is set in the same universe so if you got in on that KS or have the original edition you already have some models for the game. Incursion is straight up the space hulk to SOTR's 40k. There are zombies with sea mines crammed in their torso, Capt America style super soldiers, mechs, German paratroopers in power armor etc.
