re: NYC sex workers rampant in open-air prostitution market amid lax enforcement - oauron
[quote]So you want to arrest men for wanting to frick women? I love the pickle these people put themselves in when it comes to prostitutes vs feminists/activists [/quote] It's more about punishing johns with harsher penalties than the women forced into prostitution. Before this mindset/change ...

re: Wheel of Time TV, (first official poster) - oauron
[quote]Hired a writer to write a Trilogy of movies based on the Age of Legends. No studio is attached and it has no affiliation with the Amazon show. Word behind the scenes is the Amazon crew is pissed as hell about it, as is Jordan's estate. [/quote] I assume they were trying to ride coattails an...

re: Wheel of Time TV, (first official poster) - oauron
[quote]Doubt they will do anything worthwhile for Jordancon, way too small of a venue for a production of this size. I mean MAYBE a picture or something. [/quote] You can't even buy tickets to it. What a joke. I read all of the books in 2020, and I was hoping to make the drive but didn't realize h...

re: Upcoming MMO: Ashes of Creation (Alpha 1 test coming) - oauron
[quote]I just picked up FFXIV and I agree that the game is really damn good, been having a lot of fun leveling. Best single player MMO as well IMO. [/quote] It's a fantastic game. I took a break after Shadowbringers, but all this hype really makes me want to catch up on the post 5.1 quests....

re: New Nintendo Switch Announced - oauron
Is it even 720p? Thought the screen was same resolution as base switch and I thought that was a sub 720p resolution. The new dock with an Ethernet port is nice. I may get that. ...

re: Finch's Guide to Obtaining a GPU/CPU... - oauron
[quote]Can't go wrong with any 6 core/12 thread i5 or the 5600x. The 5600x is $299 and something like the 10600k is $175. Both will perform very similarly at 1080p[/quote] Which would you recommend between the two? ...

re: Finch's Guide to Obtaining a GPU/CPU... - oauron
[quote]Both the 5600x and 5800x have been in stock more often than not. In fact, both are in stock on BestBuy.com right now. If you're in the market for a 5900x, that's going to be more hit and miss. [/quote] So you'd recommend skipping over the 3rd gen? Found this on newegg: [link=(https://www.ne...

re: Square Enix announces Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate - oauron
[quote]I tried the other part of the new Ys demo the combat sucks. [/quote] Are you talking about Ys IX or Ys 2? I've seen you mention both so I'm a bit confused. Thinking that Ys IX's combat sucks would be a bit of a hot take. Why do you think that?...

re: Finch's Guide to Obtaining a GPU/CPU... - oauron
[quote]CPUs have become fairly easy to get in the last few months, both team red and blue. What kind of tasks are you looking to ask of your cpu? [/quote] Primarily gaming and media playback. This is for my home PC, so lots of CPU intensive games like Total War and Civ. I'm open to AMD or Intel. I...

re: Finch's Guide to Obtaining a GPU/CPU... - oauron
I'm in the market for a new CPU/Mobo, so I'll be monitoring this thread. I'm not looking for top of the line, but something solid that'll last me for several years. I'm currently using a i5-4690K that I purchased in 2015. Was looking at something like this: [link=(https://www.newegg.com/Product/Comb...

re: Chivalry 2 - brutality at its finest - oauron
It's been up for me mostly. Had a lot of fun. My tip for people is to rely a lot more on stabs rather than swinging. I've had a lot more success with that....

[quote]I wish I could remember the poster that turned me on to Y's. Switch has the demo to the latest and it let me play for 5 minutes and you run up a wall... [/quote] Probably was me.

re: What do you want from E3 this year? - oauron
[quote]A game that isn’t cross-gen. [/quote] This for me. I'd also like to see more from Final Fantasy XVI. With so many of the companies playing so close to the vest, I'd like more games to be excited about. I honestly think I care about 4-5 upcoming games and that's it....

re: Square Enix announces Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate - oauron
[quote]Octopath would be an amazing game if not for it's lack of an overarching narrative and its lack of any content whatsoever outside character vignettes. Do a vignette then until you're high enough to beat the boss of the next one. Rinse repeat 8 times. [/quote] You say that but that whole ...
