Thread Red Dead Redemption 2 |OT2| For A Few Hours More
Picked this break up and just got to act 4. Feels weird in this setting. Missing an achievement for fun with friends because I didn't rob a house with someone in an earlier chapter. Towards the end of chapter three, the search and burning of the mansion was fantastic. The pacing and builds up of the soundtrack in tandem of a mission is sublime.

Thread Workers are being TRAPped into their jobs by training debt clauses in employment agreements
We had similar clause at a competitor a few years ago. I think it was 1-2 years, and less money? But the training was easy longer than 4 weeks and pretty extensive. Grooming tool can be quite expensive, but they can be returned and passed on easily. The clause was more about preventing someone from getting specialized service training and opening up their own shop. They were also signing groomers with thousands of dollar bonus with similar clause too. Abbreviation of TRAP is a huge fail. And if they didn't get the training, that's garbage.

I have the air kill but wasn't using the confetti. Probably just burned about 6 because of that huge blast I always get killed. Didn't need aerial though since 2-3 combos killed. I'm also pissed at the palace one. Before I knew the trick I was about to plunge him from the waterfall every time. Now it's been a dozen tries and I can't hit him. Two down.

I can be behind a pillar and he can swing his sword or perilous thrust through/it. Also there is a annoying move it does that looks punish because he winds up his sword for so long. If you do nothing he just chops, but if you go to punish her with start swinging around. I do think it funny that if you thrust he will counter like you can.

Thread Post your gaming setup and home: 2022 Edition
Anyone have a Series X in a besta? I want to get a new stand because mine is really old, and I want to upgrade some things. Currently I have a 65 TCL, but want to get a 75 in a year. As it is, my Series is sitting behind my TV. Then there are some doors with junk inside and a few shelf with a old 360 and some Wii U things. Not sure if I want a "3" or "4" wide unit. The 4 would have a seem off center. There are other options that could move the seem, or have 2 seems. Also, ideally I think I want the Xbox vertical? If so, the besta needs the drawer because they allow more standing clearance. Oddly, the doors are only available in a larger size and then the Xbox cannot stand. Or, I can just lay it side way in either setup. A quick mock, opinions?

Made it look so easy, thought you had the perfect flawless run. How are you supposed to know about the thrust pulling out the centipede? I tried using it earlier on armored opponents and it never seemed to strip like it said. Do you use the normal one or the thrust one. Okay I'm deflecting his attacks but he's never getting stunned. Got it. There is a sweet spot to stand in. Half the time I was inside him when I used the thrust. Still, how was I to know you could thrust and rip a centipede? Wrecked the companion with the mortal blade, then offed the ape again, and again. Aw yeah.

Well I never used cloud saves before so recently I decided I wanted stuff poured it over to the series X so I'm turning it on for the first time in. I don't know how many years. First impression so far is there were corroded batteries and the holder. The triggers are squeaky and in general the controller feels weird after progressing through the one and now series designs. And apparently after all these years I had metal gear rising revengeance left in the tray. Next step will be figuring out which games are backwards compatible, transferring their saves and deleting stuff.

Conservative radio is interesting to listen to after events like this. They just had a caller suggest a solution is to harden all the schools and make them like Israel with bulletproof doors and windows and posting guards dressed in military fatigues at every door with assault rifles on display and that because we had billions of dollars for COVID we can afford all of this. I'm pretty sure hardening all the schools and paying for that stuff is going to be more than what masks cost. Now sometime just said COVID is to blame.

A couple of other great ideas. I just heard on the radio: They would like schools to be set up as a single entry and exit point with a retired veteran guarding the door. Or they want response teams to show up once called if an event begins because they expect to be quicker and more agile than they already established police force.

I know I'm about a decade behind, but decided to give it a shot. Playing on Series X with fps boost, it is looking good. Some minor stutter from time to time, but nothing that had effected play. The art style is simple and purposeful. And at times looks high end like current gen. And, the soundtrack so far has been super chill. I believe I'm 2-3 chapters in and heard it's pretty short. Combat is whatever, you're a runner. So far I'm just trying to disarm everyone.

Thread Red Dead Redemption 2 |OT2| For A Few Hours More
Just started a few days ago and barely scratched the surface. First impressions though, holy shit you can see and hear the production quality. The whole introduction justifies the title of art. Everything so far is slow and methodical. But this is creating some immersion, especially with game play spliced with cinematic angles. However there are a few nagging things. Other than the obvious and trodden weight on controls, an item is in front of you and you can't pick it up because Arthur spins around and past it over and over it. But the more frustrating thing for me is all the tips constantly popping up. The hud and text size is tiny and in there middle of game play they pop up for 5 second to press x or y. Sometimes it sounds out feels intuitive and sometimes not. Other times is tap this button it holds that same button. It's immersion breaking when I have to keep second guessing what buttons to press. Maybe it will start to click and I can play without thinking. Oh, and I can't tell if I should be decent or a dick.
