Random thing you love right now that doesn't deserve its own thread

Perfect. Love his movie reviews. And I've never played it either.

An Uncharted 4 fan made trailer set to the Mission Impossible: Fallout trailer music. Gave me chills

So, I have been a fan of Raymond E Feist for years. Ever since Magician: Apprentice. I picked up his new book on the Kobo and read it. I really liked it, so I mentioned it on FB.

And then I get the FB "PING".

Wow! Very nice.

Very cool, mudbunny. That also reminds me that I need to read that book - I forgot it came out this year.

Wow! That is not something many people could claim had happened to them, I'd guess!

That's awesome!

I've been a Feist fan since I was 15. I can remember specifically one day in school claiming I "forgot" my gym clothes because I really didn't feel like doing gym class that day, so I just sat on the bleachers and lost myself in Midkemia.

Never really directly got noticed by Feist, but I did have a few short chats with Guy Gavriel Kay (another fantasy author) on Twitter a while back.

Noticed by senpai?! what could be more thrilling!!!

And we haven’t even touched on the like from Daniel Black, actor, who appeared in such classics as Lake Placid: The final chapter.

A 5e group I'm in is running Storm King's Thunder, and I just circumvented an entire chapter in about an hour and a half by talking our way out of a an encounter designed to force us to explore the dungeon. For those familiar with the campaign we started the Maelstrom chapter about 45 minutes into the session we officially enter the Maelstrom, and we met with the giants and as the first encounter started I went on a 5 minute speech and passed a dc 20 persuasion check and then convinced the guards of the throne room that they were our escort and finished the encounter before we stopped the game for the evening. So basically we survived an encounter that would have been certain death, "explored" a grand total of 5 rooms all of which were mandatory, and then left the dungeon while starting the next chapter.

My local AMC is having a sing-along showing of Bohemian Rhapsody.

I love op-shops/thrift stores! I found Ace Combat 5 for a tidy five dollars. It was the last game I needed to complete the PS2 trilogy, all of which I found at other op shops.

Usually it's just a sea of old sports titles and wii shovelware, so it's nice to find some genuine quality for pocket change.

...Now I just need to hunt down a small-ish CRT to play these on. Anything larger than 19 inch and my partner would kill me

HBomberguy's Donkey Kong 64 stream where he's raising money for Mermaids in the UK, an organization that helps trans kids & families with support and information. Just under 58 hours and $320,000 raised, almost done.

If you're interested in a HDMI converter I just picked up one recommended by pc Gamer I think. Pound HD link. Will save you the crt storage

I met someone at the dog park tonight with a dog named Tifa.

Marry that guy. He's a keeper.

Spoiler:

...of the secret crystals which the entire world economy depends on. But wait! He's got a nefarious plan to use the crystals to enslave the underclass and turn the spirits of the dead into, I dunno, ghost cars or something? I haven't played a Final Fantasy game for a while but they all get real weird at the end

Spoiler:

It's quite clear you haven't played Final Fantasy for a while. Because that was nowhere near weird enough!
