    How do Audio Books work?

    Personally? I freaking love them! I listen while driving a lot, or if I have mundane tasks that are going to be all dayers. It really helps to pass the time and take your mind off of choring. Of course, music is always good for that too, but I am not one to turn my nose at a good audio book. The...

    The video game thread.

    I have one, that's where I played Breath of the Wild for the first time. It's a pretty cool system, but the controller with the screen is a bit awkward to get used to. Not a bad system overall, but the Switch kills it in comparison.

    Wow, that actually does sound really cool. Your post has me rethinking my approach to the modern day scenes. My biggest problem was that I went from playing the very first AC to playing Oddyssy (Edit: Origins, not Oddyssy, I played that after Origins), with none of the games in between. It had...

    I literally do the bare minimum in the AC games when they toss me into a modern day scenario, and pay zero attention to that aspect of the story line. I skip any and all cut scenes and dialogue, and just count down the minutes until I can get back into the Tardis (or whatever the hell they call...

    Nice!! It's good that you like the Ubisoft approach at games, because this one is definitely 100% Ubisoft. I hope you enjoy it like I have been. I'm still really digging it, it's even made me laugh a few times. Just good ol' fashioned fun.

    2020--Silver Linings?

    Thats awesome, I'm super glad to hear it! Nothing too major went wrong for me this year, at least I didn't lose any family or friends, just a lot of bad news with my families health, a ton of stress because my wife's business got shut down for a couple months and that was just a couple months...

    2020--Silver Linings?

    I'm also considered essential, so I didn't lose work or money, and I'm grateful for that, but the biggest silver lining for me is that 2020 is almost over. Lots of crap things happened this year in my personal life, as well as with what has been going on around the world, and I'm honestly...

    Is this forum run by TheGearPage?

    Any time I've ever visited another guitar forum I come running back here with my tail between my legs. This was the first (and still the only) guitar forum I ever became active on, so I sometimes forget that this is not the norm, but taking a quick gander around the web proves that we have...

    I figured you'd appreciate this post, which is why I quoted you again... Roxy is at work, and I have the week off, so I'm going to take a couple of the micro dose edible pills I made, start smoking on this gagger, and settle in for a stoner day of video games and coffee.

    Link's awakening was great fun, same with all the Mario games. I was in the middle of a game of Sunshine when my Switch gave up the ghost. Man, I really miss that system. Gotta' get on fixing or replacing it soon.

    Within the last month, or maybe two? Great game though, Shred. Good for those times when you can't be playing online with all these other MLP maniacs and just want a little grindy type of rpg fun.

    Anybody try out Immortals Fenyx Rising yet? Great game, I've been playing it for a couple days now, even my gf got her own game going and is loving it too. It's pretty much a direct rip off of Breath Of The Wild (which is Roxy's favorite game ever, so no real surprise that she loves this game...

    The greatest album ever recorded?

    Watching this just makes me appreciate Dark Side even more. Edited to include whole documentary instead of the 5 minute trailer.

    The greatest album ever recorded?

    For me, it always comes back to this: What about you guys and gals? Btw, Merry Christmas, MLP!!
