    World of Warcraft (2018 revist)

    They also added an option where you can "pay" for a max level character. Only $60 to get from 1 to 110 in a few seconds (also includes gear so you can instantly participate heroic level raids via the raid finder). Latest expansion preorder includes one such boost, which I ordered and I gotta admit, I think leveling may be my least favorite part of this game. It's nice and casual, being able to 1-hit kill most NPCs. This leaves me the ability to explore and enjoy the setting. And the last few expansions have really made a good setting.

    Big FAQ Update

    Genestealers aside, are these just the kits that aren't selling well? Is this FAQ update just to boost sales of certain kits that aren't selling well enough?

    Help! I can't remember the name of a game

    I was being silly. Did you really need to "rag" on me?

    Star Trek Discovery (season 1) 4/5. It was decent, and I expect I will watch it many more times. Definitely better than Enterprise. That said, only better than Enterprise. I didn't like the acting. Too many characters seem type cast, like Schwarzenegger films, each actor always behaves a certain way and the plot is written to keep putting that actor in the same situation over and over. It becomes repetitive over a series, but remains enjoyable in isolation to each episode. Entire series has an odd anti-religion theme, which is odd only because series doesn't seem to use as much science as past Star Trek. Almost a magic-based Star Trek, where plot resolutions don't even try to explain themselves, they just do it. The show looks nice and the costumes are great, but it definitely is following the rule of cool (like 300, where if it's cool, they'll tie it into the plot somehow). The sad thing is the lack of inventiveness to the show. They are recycling old ideas. Even the theme song is near identical to that of Game of Thrones. Some recycled ideas do look good, but they aren't enough. The show needs a borg-like encounter (as borg were to STNG), one that is both inventive and explainable. It can't be borg, has to be something new. That said, I enjoyed it enough where I will watch it again, and hope for future seasons.

    Imperial Knights reproduced, Big Bertha cometh

    I agree and it's just wishful thinking, but when people complain about GW's evil-beard races, I like pointing out that GW also lacks good-beard races.

    Big FAQ Update

    So one that came up in game. If a unit starts on the table, but then enters reserves and deep strikes via a psychic power (or other ability), are they able to arrive within the opponent's deployment zone? For example, Ork Da Jump. Can they send a unit into the opponent's deployment zone on turn 1? Can that unit assault and otherwise act normally?

    D&D (5e) books really cheap on amazon

    Reselling isn't your thing?

    D&D (5e) books really cheap on amazon

    I wonder if you could resell them? 60% off retail is a very good deal for a brand new product.

    Imperial Knights reproduced, Big Bertha cometh

    Like He-man good. Where they are genuinely trying to make the world a better place and, while firm in their ideals, they only seek to defeat those that violently disagree (as opposed to killing any that disagree). An imperial faction that isn't there for revenge or hate or racial superiority or religious superiority or money or otherwise trying to destroy everything.
  12. Dunno if the goal is to make local stores stop selling D&D books, but hardbound player's handbook for 5e is only $20.98 (like 58% off retail) right now and is prime eligible. https://www.amazon.com/dp/0786965606/ I ordered one. Debating if I need a $24 (~50% off) monster manual. Crazy discount. Doesn't even seem to be a sale.

    I hear ya. Just thinking that instead of evil beard versions, would be nice to see a good beard (beardless?) version of one of the imperium sub factions.

    I'm talking about an imperial faction. Would be nice to have a good-guy imperium faction. Dunno, Tau could join the imperium (or better yet, the imperium could join the TAU). And we know that TAU are just "warp" away from being the main power in the galaxy.
