    I wasn't gonna post but I rolled a four.

    well, that's bad if you are playing D&D; if you are playing GURPS, however, which uses 3D6, a 3 or 4 is actually 100% success.....so it depents on if you consider posting to be a bad outcome or a good one :smiley:

    Off topic but probably still considered nerdy: Where's a good place online these days to post things for sale? I know years ago it was Craig's List, but I wasn't sure if that was still a thing or not. I have a computer I need to get rid of - I've scavaged the hard drive and the DVD drive and the motherboard is bad, but everything is fine, including the water cooled processor. I live in a rural area so local classifieds aren't much luck.

    Ooh just found this thread :smile: I noticed some LOTR fans along the way, did anyone play War in the North? It was an xbox 360 game a few years back. One of my all times favourites!

    @ghudson92 I never got a chance to play it, though I think I might have it now since I have my brother's Xbox which I think was a 360. I just haven't had a lot of time to play much of anything this summer.

    Did you only play console games, or did you play some of the PC games as well? My all-time favorite was LOTR: Battle for Middle-Earth 1 (I know BFME 2 was much more popular, but I never cared for it myself). I was thrilled to find that someone had updated the specs for both games to play with Windows 10 when I set up my new computer a couple of weeks ago - even added new maps, added back the ability to play online, and the ability to play without a game disc, though I have about 3 copies of that game :)

    Oh - it took me a while to figure out who the woman was supposed to be :)

    So what happens if cyclops puts on Velma's glasses instead of his visor? lol

    It's definitely worth a go if you do have it :smile: The only trouble is it can be glitchy, I've had two copies and on about the third go round it tends to glitch :disappointed:

    I've yet to play the PC games as I've never had a PC powerful enough to cope until now! It's just finding the time unfortunately. When I finish my thesis I am planning on venturing in to the world of PC gaming.
