    Let's hope this next year will be better than the last (it's not like 2021 has to try very hard to do so either)... but I'm still keeping my expectations low. ๐Ÿ˜…

      Hopefully, 2021 will be better. As you said, it doesn't really have to do much to be better, lol, but hey, who knows? As long as the COVID-related delays are kept to a minimum and the pandemic in general slows down, that'll be good. ๐Ÿ˜…

  2. [Genshin Impact] It took me multiple tries & over an hour to clear this challenge, asking you to defeat 3 Abyss Mages in a minute is just evil. ๐Ÿ˜‘

      I still need my Ghost of Tsushima :(ย No one bought it for me for xmas guess I'll have to wait for it to drop a little more. It's worth the $40 now but too much backlog to jump on that price. xD

  6. [Genshin Impact] Got my 2nd 5* today, Zhongli:

    csXkcCJ.jpg

    Ironically I wasn't even aiming for him either, I was still hoping for the 4* Xinyan. ๐Ÿ˜… I was trying to time my pity wish so I could get Ganyu whenever she pops up, but it doesn't look like that'll happen now... so I'll just have to hope for insane luck when that time comes around. :P

    ย 

    In terms of usefulness though, Zhongli may be better than Ganyu since she's an archer... which I don't care for. I was willing to give her a chance though.ย ๐Ÿ˜… Zhongli has a pretty awesome Burst attack too where he just summons a meteor to smash into enemies, & once I get him to phase 4, its damage increases by 33% of his max HP.

      @KingGuy420 I think you're just super lucky (unless you managed to do 150-200 wishes in that first week). ๐Ÿ˜… Not factoring in the pity system, a 5* character's drop rate is what, 0.6% or 0.3%? xD

    3. KingGuy420

      KingGuy420

      Yeah I'm pretty sure I just got lucky. I got Qiqi within my first 20 pulls. Then I got Venti like 40 in. Pretty sure I was back up to like 80 when I quit so I would of got another one soon.

  7. [Genshin Impact] I finally got access to the Equivalent Exchange sidequestย  in Mondstadt (which required getting a certain daily commission first), I've been waiting for that for weeks. ๐Ÿ˜‘ But I think this is my last sidequest available in the game for me, unless anymore were added in the last couple weeks? :hmm:

  8. I got my new Ethernet cable in today (this one), I was definitely due for an upgrade for one of those... My old one had to be 10-15+ years old, & it was even cut once & taped back up. ๐Ÿ˜… Now being on satellite, my quality does fluctuate a lot due to time of day, weather, ect. But I just did a test with my new cable, & that's the best numbers I've seen since I recently upgraded my internet (yes, I consider a 600 ping good for where I live). xD

    1. DaivRules

      DaivRules

      LOL! Taped together ethernet cables are about the worst of the worst things you can do. I'm willing to bet you would have seen significant improvement even before your upgraded internet with an intact ethernet cable.

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I was surprised it even worked when I first did it (the wires in it were about as thin as a hair), but apparently it did... good enough to where I even forgot about it until recently. ๐Ÿ˜… But that old wire can finally rest in peace now... can't say I didn't get my use out of it. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  9. Just came across this G4 reunion video. Ah... what nice memories from my childhood. krR4RG8.gif It also made me feel incredibly old... akx0VRE.gif

      IntroPhenom

      I would be thrilled to see a full blown documentary about G4.ย  There must be a ton more interesting content than a forty minute video allows.

  10. Well I got my internet upgraded some today, still satellite though, so my ping still sucks. ๐Ÿ˜… DL speed is about double it was (up to 25Mbps), can't tell for upload though because whenever I try to check it, it comes up 0.00... pretty sure that's not right. :hmm: My main ethernet cable is in pretty bad shape too (it got cut once & I think it's taped together in one spotย ๐Ÿ˜ ), so I just ordered a new one, I'm hoping that'll help things a bit too.

    ย 

    The best part though is probably my monthly usage going from 20GB to 70GB... 20GB a month was really laughable. <_<

      Masamune

      Oh yeah, when the guy was here installing the stuff, he tried to get me to get this new router setup that was like $300 (Airbridge?), acting like it would've made a huge difference. But my new modem has a router built into it, plus there's only so much you can do with satellite-based internet... So I passed on it, don't think it would've changed a thing personally. ๐Ÿ˜•

      @Honor_Hand Your internet is faster than mine, if that consoles you. I have 1.4 Mbps.

      ย 

      Thanks for the consolation. I'm sure we will both be able to get a faster service one of these days.

      ย 

      @Masamune $300 for a router? Yeah, no thanks, lol. If your modem already has a built-in router functionality and your consoles are close to it, I don't think it would've made much of a difference either. Like, you could probably get better remote play and a more stable wireless connection, but for $300 that's robbery. I'm actually eyeing a few routers myself to replace the extremely old on that I have and I've seen plenty of great ones in the $70-110 price range.

      @Honor_Hand Actually half of the time I was playing Defense Grid, & was multitasking playing F/GO on my phone at the same time. xD But lately I've been putting most of my time in Genshin too, starting to get a bit burnt out on F/GO. ๐Ÿ˜… I'll be doing the Christmas lottery event coming up soon (because that's too important to pass up), but then I'll probably be taking a bit of a hiatus from it after that. :hmm:

  13. [Genshin Impact] Well I've got my main 4 characters at 4th ascension now. ^_^ Beidou & Keqing are Lv69 (no pun intended :P ), while Xiangling & Barbara are Lv60. I also have the Traveler at Lv60 as well, so that covers Geo & Anemo elements... really need to focus on Cryo next, probably Diona since I should have at least one archer leveled. :hmm:

    ย 

    Also looks like I won't be able to get Bennett from the Starglitter shop this month, but I'll probably be able to get an extra Barbara in the next lineup. An upgrade for her would be pretty useful too (I'm only at C2 right now). :hmm: I'm still kicking myself for spending 5-10 Starglitters on Fates before I knew how rare they were... ๐Ÿ˜‘

    1. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Still stuck at the third ascension with most of my main characters. I need to farm a lot of stuff for their next upgrade. You should go Diona for your Cryo type, I mean, come on man, she's a catgirl, like what else do you need? :awesome: Plus, the other Cryo types are pretty-boy Kaeya and generic-looking Chongyun. You know you want the cat loli as well. x3

      ย 

      Or you could go Qiqi if you get very lucky. I wouldn't complain if I got another ice loli for my team you know.

      ย 

      Is the Star Glitter really that rare? I've been spending all of mine on Fates as well. :hmm:

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Well, yeah... I'm saying I'm going with Diona because I need a bow character, but in reality I'm just being biased because she's a catgirl. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I got her up the Lv50 now, that pretty much drained me of materials there (including EXP). What I think I need for her is a better bow though, the best thing I have now is probably a rank 2 "Rust" (normal ATK +50%, charged ATK -10%). :hmm:

      ย 

      I assume it's pretty rare, I only have 24. Isn't the main way to get it just from getting duplicate characters in Wishes? The normal stardust I have plenty of though, that's over 1000.

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Lol. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Catgirls rule them all. :awesome:

      ย 

      That bow won't do, I think. What I'm using is a bow that boosts her energy recharge capabilities. In my case, I have a Favonious Warbow on lvl 50 refined up to lvl 3 (got lucky and found an extra couple of them). I think you can also get one from the blacksmith in Monstadt by trading the required materials.

      ย 

      It works great with her because it allows you to spam heal and shields constantly. Take in mind that Diona is more of a support-type character. She doesn't really do much damage, what you want is to be able to pull up shields and heals at every single chance. During co-op, she's very useful to heal all other players on the field, and when paired with a water companion, you can just freeze most enemies on their tracks.

      ย 

      Now that you mention it, I think it's only awarded on duplicates, yes. I don't think I've seen it awarded anywhere else yet. Either that or I haven't noticed. :hmm:

  14. [Genshin Impact] Not bad for an in-game shot, I could almost use this for a desktop BG, or at least a profile banner. xD

    1. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Not bad? It looks awesome. You can get some truly beautiful screenshots while playing this game. There are times when I'm just wandering around soaking in the beautiness of the environment this game provides. It's truly exceptional at that. It really gives me the good chills at times, you know, like when everything in the game clicks and then it reaches you on a deeper level. It makes you feel as if you were there watching all that magic and colorful scenery.

      ย 

      @MossyOakRcn42 Both Masamune and I have craptacular Internet connections, pretty much like the one you described up there (Mine is 1.7 Mbps) and we can play the game with an okay performance. Well, at least I can. Masamune does get a lot of random occurrences with enemies resetting, ignoring him mid-combat, or either healing themselves back anytime his connection stutters a little too much. Granted, it happens to me as well when my connection dips down, but for the most part, I've had an enjoyable experience with it.

      ย 

      Now, playing it on a PS5 must be glorious. The PS4 version slows down a bit when walking in the cities, and then it slows down considerably during a hectic co-op encounter with tons of monsters, so I guess it'll run just plain better on more powerful hardware.

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      @MossyOakRcn42 Like Honor said, we both have pretty crappy internet (I'm on satellite), but the game's still playable for us. From what I can tell, actual DL speed isn't as important as your ping rate. My DL speed is only 10 Mbps (& I've played it at a lot lower too), while ping ranges from around 700-1000+ ms. If you have a better ping than me, you may want to give it a shot, you may not have any problems. :hmm:

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      To add to what @Masamune said, yes, I'd say ping is the most important thing as well. Like, my connection is 1.7 Mbps at best, but my ping rate is usually around the 200-300 ms range, so those instances of the game doing weird stuff are kept to a minimum. Now, when it dips below those numbers, then yes, all sort of weird and annoying stuff starts to happen.

  16. [Genshin Impact] This was amusing, I just skipped a whole puzzle dungeon using Keqing's warp ability.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ Normally I wouldn't do this since you could be missing out on treasures, but this was my second time there, so there shouldn't have been any left in there... I hope.ย ๐Ÿ˜…

      Yesterday I had one of those daily missions where you have to run to a certain spot in the map fighting groups of enemies to get extra time. The mission was on one of the mountain ranges in Liyue and crossing some bridges. I just said, "Fuck that, I'm flying straight to the finish line." It worked like a charm, lol.ย ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜‚

    2. Masamune

      Masamune

      Yeah, I've done the same before. They give you plenty on time on those. xD

  17. [Genshin Impact] Just did my 90-100th wish & got my first 5* thanks to the pity system (I also got my 2nd upgrade for Barbara as well)! :yay:

    1. Masamune

      Masamune

      I have the same habit of saving up for 10-pulls in Fate/Grand Order as well, while it probably doesn't increase your chance of actually getting a character, I still rather save up so I get something other than 3* weapons... it's easier to keep track of my pull count like that too. :P

    2. Sir_Bee

      Sir_Bee

      Keep at it then :)ย 

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      To be fair, I also find 10 pulls far more efficient. I mean, they most likely have the same probabilities as the regular pulls, but the main difference is that you pull 10 in a single swoop versus pulling each one at a time. I don't know 10 pulls feel much better. I rather save my primogems and just use them at a specific point in time to see how much I can get.

      Yeah, enemies knocking you out of that small area on the second part of the event was kind of a nuisance, especially if you happen to get frozen, lol.

    3. Masamune

      Masamune

      Sometimes I'd get knocked out so far, I'd lose all my points... I'd just restart after that. <_< There's probably still some things I could use from the event shop, but I don't feel like going back to those challenges. ๐Ÿ˜…

      F2P is the way to go. :P No, but really, it's always nice being able to get cool stuff without having to pay for it. Both GI and F/GO have pretty stingy rates for giving out stuff and yet here we are with our cool waifus. All one needs is just a bit of patience, that's all.
