    Halloween sale going on right now, what are y'all picking up?
    I'm considering getting the STALKER series, anyone played it?
    Couple other things on my wishlist that are on sale, considering 8-Bit Armies as well.

    I have one, think it's Shadow of Chernobyl. Definitely hard, even on easy. I'd get it if it were on sale and had never played it.

    Picked up Black Mesa and Bulletstorm during the sale.
    Of course, I won't be getting to them anytime soon, thanks to Battlefield 1.

    how does one learn this nonsense known as wasd movement? seems dumb and restrictive compared to a stick.

    nope. it's a completely foreign concept to me.

    things wasd allows: fast LRLRLRLRLRLRLRLRLR

    things stick allows: movement that isn't on/off or limited to 8 directions

    i don't understand how to use it.

    The limit to 8 directions seems like it never comes into play. Your movement that matters comes from the mouse, and I've never wished I was strafing at a more accurate angle. And why does on/off matter, you miss running not at full speed or something?

    i like to make slower movements when necessary.

    but that's not the biggest problem, i can deal with constantly full speed though i don't like it. everything about pressing buttons to move unnatural for me and i can't grasp it. my fingers always seem to be in the wrong position.

    Fair, that feeling should go away with a couple days of playing though. And then you can just marvel at how great actually having a mouse is.

    ZiggyD seems to post a shit ton of good PoE content. Below is a fairly good comparison of the two titles.

    Europa Universalis IV is $10.
    If I thought I could ever get that deep into a game again I would buy it. As is, even Civ V demands more time than I can give it right now.

    Looking for a wireless router to use instead of the crap router that is built into the DSL modem that AT&T gives your for Uverse. Anyone have one they love that they can recommend?
    I only play BF1 as far as online gaming, rest of usage is just web browsing, some streaming of music and video, etc. So it doesn't need to be some $300 monster, hoping to keep it around $100.
    TIA

    Tp-Link has been a good brand for me. Not sure which one tho. Can you drop their gateway completely or do you have to use it, then go to the router? Fios makes you keep the gateway but then put the new router after it. I was going to take the old actiontec router and put it somewhere else in the house to expand the wifi coverage, but I moved the Fios router upstairs then pulled 2 new cat6 cables to each room. I've used up all the hookups on the Fios so now I need to research switches.
