Re: What are you playing?

I finished Borderlands 3 and the 3 DLCs that are out. The final DLC that's part of the season pass comes out in early September, so I'll play that too. I just finished the final season of The Walking Dead Telltale game. Sad to see that series end. I loved Clem as a character.

Cold. First someone calls it a root beer and now someone suggests drinking it hot. This thread is crazy.

Re: How about that virus eh?

I've been working from home since mid-March. The CEO is making it sound like we won't be back in the office until June, and my direct boss, the CFO, asked me how I liked working from home and I said I love it. I'm more productive and it beats driving 45 minutes one way to get to the office. He said ...

Re: Favorite Soda/Pop?

I have never in my life heard someone call Dr. Pepper a root beer. It's almost blasphemous. FWIW, the wikipedia page says it's not a root beer or a cola. Whatever it is, it's great. I don't have it much anymore, having replaced it with Diet Coke, but there was a very long time Diet Dr. Pepper was th...

Re: What are you playing?

Worked from home Monday and Tuesday and working half days in office today and tomorrow, so I've been able to actually play Borderlands 3 some. Man, it's so much fun and great to get some good time to sit down and play.

Rootbeer, Dr Pepper included.
What does this even mean? You like root beer with Dr. Pepper or are you considering Dr. Pepper to be root beer?

PS: Root beer is one of the worst drinks on the planet.

I was going to start playing some Black Ops 4 matches but I forgot I never renewed my Xbox Live subscription, so I'm going to try to get through my backlog before I spend money on a sub...

All good. It's amazing how much better life is since I changed jobs. I have not dreaded coming to work once since I got here. Also, how old is Tony? For some reason I thought he was close to my age, but with him having an 18 year old, that'd put him having a kid at 12, and that sure doesn't sound ri...

Re: What are you playing?

I got several games for my birthday and Christmas. I managed to get Borderlands 3 at least installed/updated on my Xbox last night. Maybe I'll actually get to play it in a few months. Still haven't touched Black Ops 4 from 2018. This was the first year I haven't bought a Call of Duty game. The older...

Re: Xbox X

I don't need it. I haven't been able to play my Xbox One X in two months probably (edit: 2 months exactly according to my achievements). I still have last year's Call of Duty that I haven't even played yet.

On the other hand, I need it.

JoyRide Turbo is actually a good game. We bought it way back on the 360 because Kaylie likes cartoony racing games like that.

Re: Let go

I had two interviews with our client and found out today I got the job. I'll start on November 4th. The salary is 31% more than what I currently make and they only work Monday-Thursday. No more tax season hours, only 4 days a week, and a huge pay increase. Sign me up.

I forgot to include this in my original post, but I have a job for a couple of weeks at least.

The middle of December is more than a "few" paychecks to me, so I'm not sure w...

Let go

So, one of our partners at work is leaving to go work for a bigger firm in the state, so we're losing a ton of our clients. I was told today that they're having to let me go because of that. I knew the partner was leaving a few weeks ago and I worried they may let me go, but I never thought it would...

Crisis averted. I was finally able to beat the boss I was stuck on for two days. The game is still hard; you just have to be really good at dodging.

Re: What are you playing?

Man, I was having fun with Darksiders 3. It's a mindless hack n slash like the first two until it's not. I looked up how long it should take to beat it, saw 14ish hours and was glad it wouldn't be a huge time sink, and made it to the 3rd boss. I've died more times than I can count. I just can't beat...

Re: What are you playing?

Finished Shadow of War last night. Based on the ending, I don't see how there can be a third in the series. Next up is Darksiders 3. Reviews aren't great, so I'm not as excited as I was when it was announced.

I could not imagine having a vehicle that long. I don't think I've ever gone longer than 3 years before getting something different.
