  1. I've been hoping for T2, but with this new pricing policy they would no doubt seriously test my resolve in getting one.
  2. Damn near the enire Dirt franchise was sitting in my Steam cart when I posted that! (F1, too) It's happening.
  3. Rise from your grave!! So I've been getting into racing sims and upgraded my trusty Logitech G29 to a direct drive setup by Fanatec. Brother, let me tell you, it's a whole different immersive experience. Covid sent racing sim interest into the stratosphere, and there are a bunch of products that elevate the experience - you can achieve quite a lot of fidelity nowadays. Here's what I ended up with so far: Fanatec DD2 wheel base Fanatec R300 wheel and a 2021 Limited Edition F1 wheel Fanatec Clubsport Pedals V3 Inverted Fanatec Clubsport Shifter SQ and Handbrake Sim Lab P1-X racing cockpit (Sparco Evo II US seat) Samsung Odyssey G9 49" curved display Alienware M15 w/ RTX 3080 I'm looking into adding a seat mover (like Next Level Racing's Motion Platform V3), but there are options here, like those from DOFReality. Other than that, I might collect a few more wheels, but the setup is pretty done for a while. The way all the road information gets transmitted to the wheel is something else. You get some great force feedback with the Logitech, but it caps at around 2.5 Nm of force. That's not a lot of headroom to convey it all. The DD2, on the other hand, has 25 Nm of force at the ready, coupled with a free-floating, non-geared drive shaft that feels like butter to spin, which is enough to break your wrists (not broken bones, but broken grip - I GUESS it could break your bones too if you crank up the juice and don't pay attention, who knows...) and deliver an immersive experience like no other. After I skill up a bit, I'll try my hand at racing with the crazies in iRacing. Steam's current sale has the year membership at $30, so that's almost a no-brainer. If anyone else wants to hop on an race Project Cars 1, 2, 3, Assetto Corsa Competizione, Assetto Corsa, or rFactor 2, holler. I'll try any game, just pick your poison. EDIT: Gah, didn't see the older thread that's probably a better home for this! If a mod would be so kind as to move this post there I'd love you long time.
  4. Hadrian's Wall is on the list to be played this week! ICYMI, Canvas has an expansion that just finished its Kickstarter, but there's a late pledge going. EDIT: Errr, just checked and it looks like they haven't launched the pre-order yet. Regardless, Gaming Goat will have Canvas: Reflections when it ships, too.
  5. This guy makes great stuff. I have his Tainted Grail, Etherfields, and 7th Continent organizers. https://www.etsy.com/listing/992082825/middara-box-organizer?ref=shop_home_recs_2&crt=1
  6. May marks the 2 year anniversary since I got serious about board games. The collection started on a couple of Billy's, then a year ago it was bursting at the seams in a 4x4 Expedit. Today, it's primarily in 3 5x5 Kallaxes with some room to grow. But if all the Kickstarters that were supposed to arrive this year actually do I'll be back to squeezing things into crevices.
  7. Nope. Running 2 gearlocs is the recommended way to solo Too Many Bones. Enjoy! (Hint: Watch out for day 2, it can sneak up on you.)
  8. For us, Too Many Bones is an all-timer. Our Trove Chest is filled with EVERYTHING ever produced for TMB, including the logbooks and "those things that don't exist." (Each major release of TMB contains a riddle that if successfully found and solved, CTG will send you rewards in the form of riddle specific promo cards. The in-joke is when someone posts a picture of one of these promos the community responds with something like, "I don't see anything," or, "that card/chip doesn't exist.") The game is not cheap, but once you open the box you see where the money went. No one outdoes Chip Theory Games for production quality and Too Many Bones is their masterpiece. If you like asymmetrical co-op dice-driven, card-based RPGs that are conceptually simple but also mechanically deep and varied, Too Many Bones is the ticket. Or if you just like grabbing a fistful of dice and seeing what happens... On the other end of the production spectrum, Stronghold Games delivered their Terraforming Mars Big Box and though I have mixed opinions on the quality, with a little help (mostly painting the low-res plastics) the additions really enhance the TM experience.
  9. The Great Conjunction comes!!
  10. I was told to expect a mid-March delivery but Gamestop up and did this today, just 2 days after placing the order...
  11. The All Access bundle seemed like the play, so on March 12th I'll be officially joining the future.
