Hello there!

I was wondering if there are any GB member Table Top gaming groups around Boston?

I have a few such as Gamma World, the Pathfinder card game, Munchkin, and of course Cards Against Humanity but no local people to enjoy said games with.

Heck if there is none and enough interest how hard could it be to start one?

I really liked SR2 (13 hours played) Pretty sure i beat it and thanks to the gentlemen of the row mod didn't hate every second of it (PC version was busssssstted). pretty sure the only parts i didn't like were the forced side missions to continue the story line.

SR3 (40 hours played) beat it and almost 100% + the DLC. unlike SR2 i kept going back after i finished to do the side stuff from time to time. when you are essentially unkillable some of the more annoying ones are easier.

overall i would re-install SR3 if i wanted to wander a city and cause mayhem but not SR2.

Did i see any other votes for "Source 3" ? New consoles, new engine tech.

and they could tease it with all sorts of never gonna happen things.

I got a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50S to deal with a noisy office at work. Only downside I've found is how hot you can get wearing them for a long time.

If I'm doing just about anything that is not sitting at a desk i have a bunch of cheap earbuds that I don't care if i lose or break.

And using integrated video and a card will likely make your life hard. the rule of thumb (with nvidia at least) is they have to be within a couple generations of each other or the drivers are gonna hate you. generally speaking you probably don't want to mix driver manufactures on the same box.

you can however use 2 separate cards as long as the drivers are up to it. i do it (i stopped using my 2nd monitor ) i feel it puts less stress on the main card while gaming, it doesn't have to render your desktop AND the game at the same time. i use a cheaper card for the 2nd card.
