    Charleston, SC

    I’d stay on the city side of Charleston (not in North Charleston). The town is well known for their cuisine, especially shrimp. Husk and Fleet Landing are great and reasonably priced. Over in Mount Pleasant (where Patriots Point is located), there is a great local place, long Island Cafe. if time permits, definitely walk the Battery downtown. I’ll engage my folks and try and get more answers for you.

    Parents live there now (retired). I lived there from 1977 through 1985. Love it. What are the questions?
  3. Bought, dropping right before Halloween. ‘Been itching for a SotN replay. Rondo is the icing.
  4. Kong is worth doing, and my second favorite ride there right now (I still love Hulk). Not worth an hour, but 20-30 min sounds right. HP train ride is different in each direction, FYI. Have fun!
  5. I thought Apocalypse was genuinely terrible. But Logan was an amazing film. Regarding this merger, I think the bad outweighs the good, but time will tell. If I can get a Mad Mikkelsen DOOM film, then I’ll be happy.
  6. Amazon has this for $60, in stock, for the next 1.5 hours. For the few of you holding out for sticker price, like me
  7. Very likely Black Panther 2. Three year window between the first and sequel, and BP killed in that Feb spot this year.
  8. But that upside is enough for me. They owe him a solid, since he showed up and effing DELIVERED in the PT, whilst surrounded by bad performances, mediocre writing, and not much help. I would like new as well, but I also want Ewan to get to play OW in a film worthy of his performance.

    4K for life......for now.

    Thank you for the clarification. Is there any quality drop in the audio? I’ve been eyeballing some on-sale receivers from 2017, so I may just snag one on a credit card. See some deals around $400 for a decent Pioneer. I only have 5.1 speakers, and no interest in adding any.

    4K for life......for now.

    Need advice, caballeros. After having a lovely 1080p Sony 60” since 2006, she has finally gone a bit too green in her colors for me. I bit the bullet and upgraded. Got myself my first non-Sony television, a LG OLED 65C8, which will be delivered next weekend. My receiver is also old, and incapable of passing 4K signals through. I’m not in a position to get a new receiver in the next few months (having just blown my wad on this damn television). So I’m going to send my video signals (PS4 Pro and a 4K Player to be named later) to the television directly, and then send the audio through my old receiver to the speakers. I’ve been HDMIing it for some time (and god willing, will be again soon), so is this as easy as using HDMI for the video and ye old optical cables for audio? It’s been a while, so my skills are rusty. Any advice from those having recently transitioned would be very appreciated.
  11. Well, I tried my second one in the Foothiils at Level 4. No Resurrection Stone. Only half a Rage meter. Beat her first try, no damage, bare hands only, no dodging. Just kidding. Except about being Level 4. Got reKt. Decided to get another level or so before trying again. Maybe find another Horn and Apple as well, and maybe maximize health and rage. Spent a lot of quality time with the game this weekend. Love it.
  12. I thought about grabbing that GoW Pro bundle earlier this week. No luck, except for eBay mark-ups 😢 Combat is is finally starting to work, though I still feel overwhelmed with upgrade options.
  13. Well, it was only two Favors. But I saw a bunch of stuff I couldn't do yet, so I'm assuming I'll get back there soon. I'm basically right where you are in the story. And the story is pretty rad so far.
  14. Me too, but I remain quite happy. I'm sitting on a load of XP (did a few Lake favors), and trying to figure out all of the upgrade paths. I have the same sense of option paralysis, but this game is working. My only gripe is that I am opening a shit-ton of chests. Honestly...too many of these things.
