  1. Thanks Pat!
  2. It's a little early, but I wanted to wish everyone a very... HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
  3. I love audio books! But now that I don't drive 4+ hours a day I don't listen to them much anymore... But I love that I'm not wasting my life behind the wheel now!
  4. I recently completed Death March (Euphoria Online Book 1) and also really enjoyed it The setup early in the story is a little far fetched but interesting, and the main character, Chris, is like-able and someone you can route for. In short, Chris gets a chance to spend a weekend of full immersion VR in which he hopes he can win his brothers freedom in the real world. The only catch is, he must survive his time in game without a single respawn to get a chance at winning his brother's pardon. And to make matters worse, his free ticket into the virtual world starts him off in the worse possible way. For those interested, here's a summary from Amazon: https://amzn.to/2R2vYv3 I sacrificed everything for my family. It wasn't enough. I lost my mother, and now I'm about to lose my brother. I've got only one thing left to gamble: my life. Which is why I'm willing to play Euphoria Online in Death March mode. If I survive six months in-game against a lethal array of wyverns, ogres, necromancers, and more, I'll earn my brother a pardon. If I lose? Well. I'm done with losing.
  5. So how's Dune as a book/audio book? I've seen the movie but never read the book...
  6. Yeah, one of my favorites! When the released it at $40 I was like, too expensive - but for $8 sign me up!
  7. I just completed the Ritualist (The Completionist Chronicles Book 1) and really enjoyed it There are a few odd things about how it starts, but I have to say I totally agree with the nearly 5 star rating this book gets. The main character, Joe, finds himself a quadriplegic after a horrible accident, but then is invited to be one of the first to play a new full immersion VR game. And since you start the game off with similar stats your had in real life, Joe starts off as an intelligent but extremely week human character. Thankfully, his role as a combat medic prior to his accident gives him a rare healing ability which turns out to be a real plus for his character. For those interested, here's a summary from Amazon: https://amzn.to/2TgTfL3 The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far more literal. After making the decision to become a permanent addition to a game world, it doesn't take him long to learn that people with his abilities are actively hunted. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves. In his pursuit of power, Joe fights alongside his team, completes quests, and delves into the mysteries of his class, which he quickly discovers can only be practiced in secret. Ultimately, his goal is to complete every mission, master every ability, and learn all of the world's secrets. All he has to do is survive long enough to grasp greatness.
  8. Get Burnout Paradise Remastered for Xbox One for just $8! https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/burnout-paradise-remastered/bqmq3k1blv1t I have it on Disc but will be getting this digital edition!
  9. Recently just read, "Negation Force: Obsidan Fleet Book 1" (Sci-Fi Space War/Alien Attack) The book follows several groups of soldiers who try to fight off an alien species attack on a human world. I felt the book started off well, but then got mired in minutiae before hitting it's stride in the final third of the book. It's not uncommon for "Book 1" of a series to have pacing issues, however I'm not sure I liked the characters enough to pickup book 2. For those interested, here's the official summary from https://amzn.to/2qMgrUz The human Confederation has known an unprecedented time of peace, unheard of in a universe where every other species is not only technologically advanced, but also incredibly hostile. The good times are about to end. Out on the fringes, the planet Atlantis is attacked by an alien foe remembered only by the oldest members of the Space Corps. These aliens – known as Vraxar – are abominations of flesh and metal, driven to exterminate every other life form in the universe. Now it’s humanity’s turn. In the ruins of the Tillos military installation, Sergeant Eric McKinney is determined to fight back and find out why the Vraxar have come. Meanwhile, a response fleet is mustered with the intention of facing the enemy head-on. It’s a mission with no hope of success. As events unfold, it becomes apparent the Vraxar have secrets which give clues to their purpose. The answers are more shocking than anyone could have imagined. The lives of strangers are intertwined and together they must try and salvage something from this first exchange in a war that will not end until one side is utterly defeated. Luckily, the Tillos base holds secrets of its own…a warship with an exceptionally powerful Obsidiar core is contained within an underground bunker. It is the only hope for Atlantis… Negation Force is a science fiction action and adventure book which begins The Obsidiar Fleet series. Author’s Note: this book is set forty years after events in the Survival Wars series. There is no necessity to read the earlier books to enjoy this one.
  10. Samsung's brand new Odyssey+ will be $300 ($200 off) this Black Friday week starting Nov. 18th. https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/hmd/windows-mixed-reality/hmd-odyssey-windows-mixed-reality-headset-xe800zba-hc1us/ For those who are wondering, it has the highest resolution of gen 1 standard FOV headsets (including Vive, Rift, and WMR) Sadly, to get one of the new wide FOV headsets like the ones from Pimax, you'll need to spend at least $800 just for the HMD. Will be interesting to see what Valve launches in the coming months (pictures of their new headset have leaked, but no comments from Valve yet)
