  1. Seemed like it was just one corner getting roasted.
  2. Similar situation here. 45, usually just did weekend drinking in my 20s but somehow the past 10 years evolved to every night drinking. I mentioned in another thread (maybe about a year ago?) that I was considering quitting altogether. I'm fine not drinking to excess and only having 2-3 beers in an evening, but the problem is my body isn't. The last few years it's really jacked up my sleeping pattern and also caused acid reflex, which can make the sleeping issue even worse. These last few months I've cut way way down and am usually around 4-8 beers a week (depending on ABV), the bulk of which are on Saturday. I have many days during the week I don't drink at all. But the thing is, even just 3 beers can mess up my sleep and make me totally unmotivated to do anything the next day. I guess I'm just getting old and can't handle alcohol anymore?
  3. I have a similar situation. I'm 45. It's not so much about the exact time I wake up... it's the length of sleep. On super rare totally awesome occasions I can get close to 9 hours, but typically I clock in around 7. If I make bad life decisions (beer) and stay up really late, I'm probably looking at a low-quality 6 hours. Thankfully I've been really cutting back lately and usually going to bed at a decent time.
  4. Wow I felt the exact opposite. One of the worst zombie films I've ever seen. Maybe because I hated its treatment of the zombies and that moved it in a completely different space for me. Felt like I was watching a new Predator flick where everyone makes baffling decisions despite having prior knowledge of how this whole things works... unlike "origin" films in the genre.
  5. I'm waiting as well. I've played 2 and 3 but never went back after they supposedly "fixed" the ending. It's been a long, long time since so it will be fun to start fresh and play straight through. But like you I just can't justify the expense right now with so much else in the queue. I'm thinking I'll grab it when it drops under 30.
  6. This makes a lot of sense. I'm sure I came across as way too critical of whoever prepped my 2nd, but mostly I was just joking. Mostly. Honestly I was just thankful to get it all over with. Beyond just the simple act of getting the shot, the 2nd dose after effects were downright brutal for me. But I have autoimmune issues so I expected that.
  7. As someone who has regularly prepped injections in the past, and also seen how the Moderna vaccine was prepped behind-the-scenes, I can tell you that how it is handled can make a big difference in the sharpness of the needle. I got my 2 shots from different places. On my 1st shot I felt almost nothing, but the ham-fisted brute who prepped my 2nd shot caused it to feel like I was getting stabbed with dull steak knife.
  8. Other hack and slash games have made the jump, so I hope you're right. Will definitely give it a go whenever that happens. Looks fun.
  9. I'm having a hard time deciding what my price point on this one is. First it was 30, then 20... but that keeps dropping the more I learn about it. I might just might wait until it's free.
  10. Ha! Can certainly understand that! But in my case, mine was a PS4 pro jet engine and I was so ready to karate kick that thing into the street.
  11. Yeah I absolutely agree with you that right now the internal size is a pain... mine is maxed out. Sorry if I sounded dismissive. I could be wrong but it seems like it would be a nightmare for dev optimization to adjust all the asset loading and streaming if a game could be played on 2 vastly different bus speeds. Either way, not much we can do other than swap back and forth until they figure this internal expansion thing out.
  12. Well yeah, they run just fine on a PS4 because the bus speeds between internal and external are minimal performance-wise. But on a PS5 the difference is staggering.
  13. Ah I see. Complete misunderstanding on my part. I thought the "Even a bigger reason for me to hold off for now" comment meant you were going to hold off on a PS5 altogether. My apologies... But I totally get you regarding the m.2 slot. Hopefully they get that sorted out sooner rather than later. In the meantime I'll use a 1TB external SSD I had originally installed in my PS4 pro. Not ideal but better than nothing while we wait.
  14. Why is this a big deal? You wouldn't want to play on external anyway, as it would severely affect performance. And the announcement says you can swap games back and forth easily.
  15. The city is talking about much stricter measures now. Supposed to be a press conference soon. I heard on the radio this morning that we are just about the worst in the country at social distancing, based on cellphone proximity data. And that doesn't surprise me... Although people here are extremely good about wearing masks out in public, they are terrible about having family+friends get-togethers where they don't wear masks. El Pasoans are all about backyard parties.
  16. This team is so bad that a guy who famously doesn't score TDs had 2 against them! I mean, I get that the D is undermanned and inexperienced right now, but what I don't get is the offense just coming out and immediately dying on the field. Not enough has changed on that side of the ball to justify the struggles by Cousins. He's had WAY TOO MANY horrific, inexplicable "forgot my pen, #### the bed" stretches of play.
  17. True. It was nice seeing Cook go off and Jefferson finally getting involved. I know it's not fact, but I feel like Jefferson after one big game already has more career yards than Treadwell.
  18. That may very well be the most inept 2 minute drill I've ever seen.
  19. Well, on the grass is only greener side, sure they made do with what they had and won the game, but let's not get carried away. The RBs only averaged 3.5 per carry. There were several times when runs got blown up in the backfield for a big loss. They also schemed to Carr's advantages to get the ball out of his hands quickly. I think the real key here is, they had a solid game plan and stuck to it. They continued to run even when it wasn't working well. They utilized their backs and TEs in the passing game because their WRs are inexperienced rookies. Now those are things the Vikings could definitely learn from.
  20. I know we're only 2 games in, but I just can't find any silver linings in this squad that lead me to believe they'll turn things around. Will be nice to get Hunter back, but there's just so many weaknesses everywhere that I don't see him making up for it. And that's just on defense.
  21. Yeah every time I'm on my xbox, I hate the console UI but love the store. Opposite on PS4.
  22. Oh for sure, I expect a huge jump in the performance of the xbox drive as well. Time will tell if Sony's customized drive is truly superior, but it seems that way from dev comments. Either way, most games will likely perform similarly on both platforms. If someone is trying to decide, it's probably best to just get the one they'll be able to play with friends on.
