I have nothing to cancel, but I would have done the same. Blizzard really fucked this one up.

Well, I just hit my first issue. Got to the upper part of the library, with all the traps. Just booted the game up, left the save point just outside the shortcut to the upper part, and now I just get a black screen when I enter the upper part :/

But yeah, I never really got into the castlevania games before. I've played a bit of sotn and such, but never really spent the time to get into the games, so this is pretty much my first real foray into them (yeah, ok, not technically a castlevania, but it might as well be.)

I really like the mechanics in the game. It seems like farming ingredients is kinda tedious (I know you can buy them after you've crafted them, but even so). To the point that the second book I took out from the library was the luck one. But even with that, I haven't hit a point yet where I really need to farm anything so whatever.

I've got the Acer Predator BMIPRZ XB241YU, 24 inch 144hz (OC'd to 165) myself. With a 1070 I get like ~90 FPS in borderlands 2 with shit maxed at 4k then downsampled to 1440p lol. Not that that game is exactly hard to run, but I was surprised I could do that with this thing. I haven't played anything that actually seems to tax my card so far, but that's also because I really don't play games all that often any more -.- So given all that, yeah, you're gonna be able to basically do whatever you want with that thing and not have to worry about "can I run this at max?".

So, I acquired a copy of Bloodstained. And holy hell, I'm loving this. Looks like I've finally found something to sink my teeth into for a while. It's rare these days for a game to just immediately pull me in. I'm not sinking every waking moment into the game, but that's a good thing because it means I might not burn out on it nearly as quickly as I often do for other games.

Yeah, my 1070 is enough to shit all over most games at 1440p, and that thing is considerably more powerful.

In terms of price, I have no idea, but dude, nice. I've only got a 1070.

Damn, well, it was worth a shot. Guess I'll have to post on /r/emacs or something. My programmer friends from highschool also use vim.

I've been playing around with linux as of late, and I've decided I'd like to try to learn to work with emacs. Of course, since emacs has a learning curve of approximately infinity (only slightly worse than that of Dwarf Fortress), I've gotten stuck with a few things.

So first, I've been trying to figure out how to activate orglink on all major modes, because I like the idea of being able to follow links I leave in comments or text files. But I can't figure out how to actually activate it. I had to install an updated version of org, which I pulled from their own repository with the standard package-install function after adding it to my .emacs file, but I can't actually figure out how to activate it because well I'm not exactly well versed in configuring the .emacs file (I have made a couple minor customizations though).

I'm also trying to figure out how the elpy minor mode works. It's a python minor mode that makes use of virtual environments. I have no experience with python virtual environments to begin with and it seems kinda.... broken. It loads when I enable it, but running elpy-configure doesn't seem to work correctly.

Here's my .emacs in all it's ugly mess if anyone cares.

Sounds awesome. The gf and I have been talking about classic, but still haven't actually committed to it.

Honestly, I was really surprised at how well I managed the hard parts. Usually my graph straight up flatlines for a while during those. A few of those patterns absolutely ruin me. And yeah, it's a VERY o2jam chart. 17va, the creator of the chart, came from o2jam (although to my knowledge he never made any charts before switching to osu). o2 style charts are by far my favorite, though I do enjoy some BMS charts here and there as well.

But yeah, I love how jazzy that track is. The bassist is going off the entire time, and the drums are pretty crazy too.

Also, Talk about consistency, these scores are 4 months apart, but I got the exact same combo on both lol

Got around to posting another osu!mania score. I absolutely love this song, but I still can't pass the map yet, so this one's with nofail:

I love that there's still so much complexity in a seemingly fairly simple FPS when it comes to speedrunning. Doom is one hell of a game.

Ok, that's definitely a new one for me. Never heard of something that messes the monitor up enough to persist past a reboot and require a power cycle on the monitor like that.

The leaderboards are pretty barren. From what I've done so far it sort of seems like I could very well be on WR pace, haha. I need to get a recording/streaming solution together soon.

Oh, yeah definitely need a setup if there's a chance of getting a WR.

Yeah, I'll second the high refresh rate making a difference. I'm running 1440p 144hz (actually, I've got it OC'd to 165) and everything is just smooth as butter.
