    • Steam Game Completion

      Ragnar74

      I have a lot of games that I've gotten on Steam that I have not played, due to buying games in bundles from both Steam and Humble Bundles. I'm going to make it a point to attempt to complete all games I have not touched before spending a dollar on my new PC. I just completed Metal Gear Rising: Revengence; I don't know why I ignored it, it was so good. Now I'm playing Deadly Premonition, see what all the fuss is about.
      Here's the list:
      Alan Wake 3/11/15
      Alan Wake American Nightmare 3/14/15
      Alpha Protocol
      Batman Arkham Asylum/City/Origin
      Binary Domain
      BIT.TRIP Runner
      The Bureau: XCOM Declassified < I cannot bring myself to complete this. I sucks.
      Cave Story+
      Cthulhu Saves the World
      Deadly Premonition - (Crashing after a cutscene in the hospital. Will troubleshoot later)
      Deus Ex: GOTY/ Human Rev/ Invisible War/ The Fall
      Dustforce
      Element4l
      FEAR 2 3/26/15
      FEAR 3 4/2/15
      Far Cry
      Farcry 2
      Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon
      Gun Point
      Hell YEah!
      Hitman: Codname 47/ Contracts/ Blood Money/ Absolution
      Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
      LA Noire
      Lara Croft and the Guardians of Light
      LIMBO
      Lone Survivor
      LOTR: War in the North
      Metro: Last Light
      Neverwinter Nights 2: Platinum
      Orcs Must Die 1+2
      renegade Ops
      Reus
      Stalker: Call of Pripyat/Clear Skies/Shadow of Chernobyl
      Sleeping Dogs
      Sniper Elite V2
      State of Decay
      This War of Mine
      Thomas Was Alone
      Valkyria Chronicles
      XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

      I've played more than a few of these, but never beat them to completion. Probably my most embarrassing was XCOM: Enemy Unknown, with 25 hrs. I've not listed other as I've either played them on another console or in the past

      Here we go.

    • Walking Dead (TellTale)

      6 years ago

      Ragnar74

      Just played the final episode of the series and I could hardly contain all of my "feels".
      I didn't use any kind of walkthrough and I only watched Let's Plays of the first 2 episodes, but everything after that I used my gut to make decisions. I tried to play the role of both peacekeeper and enforcer; I tried to keep everyone calm, but also grounded in reality. Needless to say I clashed with Kenny a bit, particularly about his dream for a boat and the death of Duck , but I feel I supported and sympathized with him more.

      So here we go, these are my major plot choices though each episode.

      Episode 1: "A New Day"
      * Left in the daylight with Clem.
      *Was truthful with Hershal about myself and relation to Clem.
      *Saved Duck first (Knew there was no way to save Shawn)
      *Defended Duck from Larry and tried to reason with him.
      *Refused to put give woman at motel the pistol (Didn't matter in the end)
      *Saved Carley over Doug (She had a gun... plus a vagina)


      Episode 2: "Starved For Help"
      *I cut off David's leg.
      *I handed out food to Clem (apple), Duck (jerky), Larry (cheese), and Mark (cheese).
      *I fixed the swing myself.
      *I did not shoot Jolene at the camp.
      *I told everyone immediately that they were about to eat human meat, preventing everyone, but Duck, from eating. (Larry still acted like he did in the meat locker that he did, even through he didn't. Pretty sure its a bug.)
      *Tried to revive Larry. (Knew it didn't matter in the end.)
      *"Spared" the St. John brothers.
      *Agreed with taking the supplies from the car in the woods.


      Episode 3: "Long Road Ahead"
      *Did not shoot the girl in town after she was bitten. Grabbed more from the store.
      *Agreed with Lily that something someone was stealing. Let Duck be my sidekick.
      *Told everyone but Ben and Katjaa about my true past; with them I just told them I was going to prison, but not that I was a murderer.
      *Tried to Calm Lilly down from kicking Ben or Carley out of the group. Did not abandon Lilly and she stole the RV.
      *Gave Duck water.
      *I reasoned with Kenny to stop the train and spared him the pain and put Duck out of his misery before he turned.
      *Made a plan with Clem, taught her to shoot and cut her hair.
      *Omid jumped on his own after me, and I helped him onto the train instead of Christa (Didn't matter in the end)


      Episode 4: "Around Every Corner"
      *I took care of the Walker in the attic (I shot him).
      *I agreed with Kenny to look for the boat, but that we ought to resupply at the house.
      *Molly kicked my ass.
      *I calmed down Vernon and didn't resort to violence.
      *I let Clem come to Crawford with the group. She saved Molly.
      *I tried to keep Ben quiet about his involvement with the bandits from Kenny, but still defended him when they started voting him out of the group. (Not the best time)
      *Refused to let Ben go and saved him.
      *Revealed my bit to the group. All but Kenny agreed to follow me to find Clem (Supposedly you have to agree with him throughout everything in the game.)


      Episode 5: "No Time Left"
      *I agreed and let Christa cut off my bitten arm.
      *I angrily confronted Kenny's paranoia about my bite, but did not attack him with the marble bust.
      *Kenny and I made appends and aplogized to each other.
      *I asked Omid and Christa to look after Clem, and keep to the countryside.
      *I refused to leave Ben and Kenny in the alley, but was pushed out by Kenny to ended Ben's suffering with his last bullet.
      *I made my way to the Marsh House alone, telling Omid and Christa to head back to the train and look for Clem.
      *Clem helped my against the Stranger with the butcher knife, and later shot him after I refused to choke him.
      *I begged Clem to put me out of my misery, and advised her to go back to the train, find Christa and Omid, and keep her hair short.


      I cannot wait for Season 2. If the decisions from this game carry over into the next, I'd feel pretty good about my choices. I think I'll go back and do a "jerk" and "silent" playthrough.

    • Graphics card

      Ragnar74

      Hey ya'll, getting a new computer in the next couple of hours, but it doesn't come with a dedicated graphics card. It has a slot for one, but I don't think I'd like to transfer my old graphics card to this new pc. My current gpu is a Nvidia Geforce 9500GT, and it can play GW2 on minimum settings. I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive, mid $100 to $200 range, to play GW2 on a mid to high quality. I will be getting a new power supply to supplement the new gpu, so that is not a problem.
      Just from looking around online I've seen the GeForce GTX 550 Ti getting some good reviews or a Radeon in the 7770 range.
      So just curious what everyone else in running and hopefully come up to speed with the rest of the world.

    • Racial Bias

      in Forums > Racial Bias | Follow this topic

      Ragnar74

      Just wondering if other feel the same as me, but I have almost no desire to play any other character besides the Charr.
      The Charr were such excellent villians in the original GW, that since I learned they would be a playable race in GW2, I knew that my first and possibly primary character would be a Charr. And I was right. It's not that I don't like the other races, its just that I'm considerably less excited about them. My Charr character is almost level 40, while my other characters are less than 10.
      So, am I alone in feeling this way, or are there others, and if so what's your favorite race to play as?

    • Looking for a new i5 motherboard

      in Forums > Looking for a new i5 motherboard | Follow this topic

      Ragnar74

      Hey there, I'm looking to upgrade my computer with a new motherboard, as well as upgrading my processor to an intel i5. I've never installed a motherboard before, so I'm not sure what to be looking for. Not really looking for high end specs, but a good bargain will last me for a couple of years until I need to upgrade again.
      If someone could be so kinda as to link a guide that explains uninstalling my old motherboard and installing the new one, that would be much appreciated.
      Also, I've been reading that after installing a new motherboard you might have to reinstall your OS. Is this true, and is there anyway to avoid that?

    • Things not to do at Home Depot

      7 years ago

      Ragnar74

      I've worked there for almost half a year and I've already started a list.
      1. Bring in your own damn cart. If you're going to be looking at patio furniture or BBQs, then find a cart and bring that bitch in. It will save everyone time.
      2. You want your strange and obscure question answered? Either come on the weekend when everyone is here, or google that bitch.
      3. If an associate is with a customer, kindly wait your turn, they will be with you in a moment. Don't interrupt and demand service. They were there first, and if you were in their position you would fucking hate if someone did that, you bitch.
      4. If you can't find someone in the dept. you're in, don't stand there for an hour (or so you say), go look for someone, or go to the service desk near returns; they will page someone.
      5. There is a huge difference between a store warranty and a manufacturer warranty. We are not responsible for the latter if your shit breaks or if you break it.
      6. If you can't find the price tag, we will look it up; do not demand for it to be free or at a discount. We'll sell it anyway once we find the price, whether it be you or the guy who walks in 5 mins later. we don't care.
      7. For the love of all that is holy, bring an appropriate vehicle. An SUV or truck is best. I am not going to try and get a mower into your coupe.
      8. We are here to assist you, not be your fucking servants or bitches. If you want help with something, ask. If you want someone to complain to and degrade, sorry that's not my department and no one has to stand for that.
      9. Understand that we are human and get tired. When it is 100+ degrees and we do load after load we get exhausted. Have some sympathy for love of god.
      10. Mark downs and reduced prices work like this: Anything under $50 is up to the associate or cashier's discretion. Anything over $50 the absolute most we can offer is 10%. Anything more a manager's approval is needed. It doesn't matter what we say, their word is the final.
      11. Can't find what you are looking for? Give it another good hard look, you just might find it. Also look above and below; not everything is eye level.
      12. If an associate is walking fast or in some cases running with a store phone to their ear, do Not stop them. They are either helping a customer or dealing with an emergency. Go to the service desk for help.
      13. Oh, you bought something here 5 years ago an you're shocked we don't carry it anymore? Please tell me more.
      14. If something broke and you are looking for a replacement part, bring the old part in to compare. "What size drive belt do I need for my Cub Cadet riding mower?"
      "The fuck if I know. Do you have it with you?"
      "No, I threw it away."
      15. If you take something from the shelves, take that extra 10-20 seconds to put it back it its correct place. It really makes a big difference when we have to reorganize it at the end of the night. I once found 3 pieces of plywood shoves into a shelf in the Chemical aisle; lumber is on the opposite end of the store. What the fuck?
      16. the other store does things differently? Why the fuck are you here then?

    • My Secret Identity discovered!

      7 years ago

      Ragnar74

      Yesterday while at work (I'm a sales associate for the garden section of Home Depot), my Secret Identity was discovered. It was about 2 or 3 in the afternoon and I was but 1 of 2 of the associates on the floor, 1 inside and 1 outside, and so I got stuck watering the plants. So I'm watering the small bit that I needed, about 5 or so tables, which takes a while to ensure each plant receives plenty of water rather than just a quick spray. So I'm watering, but also greeting each customer and answering questions. One little old lady, barely just 5 feet tall passes by me and i greet her and offer my help and she smiles and says, "No thank you.", and continues on her way. So I go back to watering. This same lady passes by me about 2 more times, each time looking at me and smiling. I smile back and offer my help again, but she declines.

      I'm almost done, I think I'm on the last table and the lady comes back to me and asks with a smile:
      "You're a Viking aren't you?"

      What a weird question right? Maybe to you but to me it was an awesome question. I'm a quarter Danish, and the Danish were some bad ass vikings. Rollo, or Robert I., was the first Duke of Normandy in France. Rollo was approached by King Charles of France to stop all the other vikings in the area from raiding and in return he would be given Normandy to call his own. Normandy literally means "Land of the North Man", and Vikings are "Northern Men". Anyway when Rollo and Charles struck this deal with was required that he kiss the foot of Charles to show his allegiance. Rollo refused and instead had a fellow warrior do so. The warrior instead of stooping down, grabbed Charles' ankle and brought his foot up to his face to kiss it, causing Charles to fall backwards. Vikings don't give a fuck.

      I tell her this and she gets really animated and basically tells me her life story. She's 84 years old and is Finnish and came to the US in her teens with her family and lived in California her whole life, but never forgot her heritage. Then she got all nationalistic, and perhaps a tad bit racist and tells me that the vikings are the best people in the world and that they have always been that way. So I smile and politely agree and again offer my assistance, but she was already done shopping and happily shuffled to the register. Needless to say I was chuffed and laughed to myself for the rest of my shift.
      I have always been called out on my German heritage of which I am 1/4, but never by Danish. Which is funny because I always use viking names for my username of character name in games.

      But yeah, this was how I felt watering the plants with the wand attachment:
