Favorites - Games I am super into at the moment. List changes all the time. Left 4 Dead 2 and Street Fighter IV have been mainstays.. The Telltale games stay there while their specific seasons are active.

Trash - I keep this folder minimized. It is a collection of indie games I have no interest in ever playing (Crayon Physics Deluxe, ten different versions of The Ship, etc) and games that have been made obsolete by directors cuts and game of the year type editions.

Then I just have everything else.

This is what mine looks like, for the exact same reason. I get tired of looking at all that HumbleBundle bullshit. :P

The new Mass Effect sounds like it is shaping up to be pretty great, but I hope it doesnt take place during sheaprds life time as some are saying.

Also, I'm bummed to find out that Lady Stoneheart won't be appearing on the GoT series. Not surprised; just bummed.

I was reading an article/video and there was mention that Arianne won't be on the show either (or Aerys for that matter), and Trystane is listed as the heir to Dorne which I find extremely odd. I'm still not super far into the book right now, but as far as I've read Trystane isn't even in Sunspear. Last mention of him was that he was somewhere across the Narrow Sea I think. The last bit that i read of what was going on in Dorne really foreshadows Arianne being a huge force in the upcoming events there so I got the impression she would be a major character in the show so not sure why they'd cut her out.

As for Lady Stoneheart, I haven't read far enough to really know who she is but after a quick google search to see who she was, I can get why people would be upset. I remembered at the end of book 3 there being some mention of Catelyn not being dead but I have no idea where it goes from there. I haven't read anything about her since then so I have no idea how major a character she becomes as 'Lady Stoneheart' but supposedly there is a ton of fan backlash so I'm guessing somewhat major.

Trystane is in Dorne with Myrcella. They play chess (or whatever it's called in Westeros) all day. That's about it with him. Doran's other son, Quenten, is the one travelling across the narrow sea. I think Arriane just hasn't been cast yet. She's the center piece for the events surrounding Trystane, Myrcella, and all the Sands. Casting them with no intention of including her makes absolutely no sense at all. Same goes for Aerys Oakheart. As for the Lady Stoneheart, she's not a super huge deal in the book, so I can see why she was left out. But people get attached to the character for obvious reasons. I never was sure how I felt about her, but I did want to see how well she was portrayed on the show. It's her eyes. I wanted to see the glare of those eyes.

Arya Stark (maisie williams) looks to be in talks to play Ellie in TLOU movie.. Also, Druckmann is writing the script! Two things that make it sounds like it will actually be a good video game movie.

I want this to happen. I think her name would draw a lot of people to the movie without dishing out $10 million for such recognition.

I've got a friend that wants Ellen Paige to be Ellie.. I'm sure she would be great but personally I think she is old for the roll and she probably isn't super excited about working with Sony after her deal with TLOU at first and also her "accidental nudity" in Beyond.

As much as I love Ellen Paige, she could only fuck this up. She's too old and missing too much of what the character needs. In fact, unless she's playing a witty high school girl, a psychotic high school girl, or a bread crumb, don't even call her. Maisie Willliams is damn near perfect for the role, but I also have my doubts about her. She's not very good at acting distressed or mournful - two things Ellie is most of the time. If she can work on that, though... oh man. I blame Ashley Johnson and the amazing animators at Naughty Dog for making the character virtually unachievable on the big screen.

THE DREAM BUILD

I just might

It would be a colossal waste of money for sure but I just might.

Gonna have to look into some sleeving kits or loads of electrical tape.

Hell, if you're gonna go all out like that, why don't you drop the 212 and get one of those nifty AIO water coolers? Not sure it'd even fit in that case.

Looks like a great build, though. Hopefully, I'm an RN next time I upgrade, because I want to splurge like that on a good build. Just once.

I checked into it and there isn't any real performance increase in water coolers, they just look neat. And yeah, this is something I would really like to do just once, just to have done it.

I think they're also great for space. Depending on the MB, it can be a headache fitting a large air cooler in next to RAM with ridiculous heatsinks (like the Corsair Vengeance I have). I never got to that issue, however, because my current case was too slender for the 212 to fit. I wanted a new case anyway, so I ordered a new one instead of switching coolers. Hopefully, my RAM won't be an issue. If so... "uh oh, honey. Looks like I need an expensive cooler now." :P

One day, someone will buy Google for a google.

Is that even a thing anymore? I remember I was in like, the 3rd grade when that was announced as the last number. I guess people realized how stupid a notion that was and stopped using it. Not before a multi-multi-billion dollar company decided it'd be a groovy business name, of course.

This SSD is no fucking joke. It doesn't do everything as fast as I expected, but I now randomly reboot my computer just to see if I'll notice it.
