    I got Morrowind. I saw that there is a project to enable VR play with a fan-created engine, and that was one of my dreams for VR. I haven’t had a chance to set it up yet, but I’m looking forward to it. I will probably have to download a bunch of mods to make it look good enough.Report

    I haven’t tried it yet, so I cannot vouch for it:

    (Huh, why couldn’t I load this article? Oh, it has a cover picture of low-sodium soup. Buying that obscenity blocker was the smartest move I ever made.)Report

    I was trolling the sale and it reminded me that I probably should play Dues Ex again…maybe the whole series….otherwise I didn’t see much that I might want….but I’m still waiting for cyberpunk. I should relook though.

    Currently playing Fallout 4 again.Report

    I just can’t get excited about game sales anymore. 90+% of the cost of a game is the time I spend playing it, and if I buy a game because it’s on sale and I think I’d like to play it someday, then there’s a good chance I’ll never play it. If there’s a particularly expensive game I know I want to play next, I’ll wait for a sale, but otherwise I just buy something when I decide I’m ready to play it.

    When I was a kid, I’d sometimes put more food on my plate than I could reasonably eat; my grandfather told me that my eyes were bigger than my stomach. That’s about how I feel about digital game sales. My eyes are bigger than my…thumbs, I guess?

    By the way, unrelated question: Do you still have problems with sleep apnea?Report

    • Jaybird in reply to Brandon Berg says:

      Sleep Apnea: Not at all. I got my CPAP and it works. It works like a charm. Like, for a few months, I wouldn’t shut up about it.

      I understand that there are some for whom the CPAP does not work and that makes me sad as heck. Because mine works like a charm for me.Report

      • Brandon Berg in reply to Jaybird says:

        Cool! I remember you talking about CPAP, but couldn’t remember whether you loved it or hated it. I was asking because I just had DOME surgery to correct my crossbite, and while looking into the research on the surgery, I noticed that it resulted in fairly dramatic improvement in sleep apnea symptoms. But if you can manage it with a CPAP, that’s probably a lot cheaper.Report

        • Jaybird in reply to Brandon Berg says:

          Dang! Ouch!

          Anyway, yes. I manage mine with a CPAP and I have my life back and sleep deeply and so on. (Pretty sure that mine is somehow tied to obesity. For that particular problem, I’m doing what I can but, you know, life. Right?)Report

          • Brandon Berg in reply to Jaybird says:

            It’s not so bad. They have to cut some nerves to get to the bone, and it takes a while for those to grow back, so that mitigates a lot of the pain. 48 hours post-op, I’m only mildly uncomfortable. I never really thought of having feeling in my teeth, but it’s a bit unsettling not having the tactile feedback when chewing.Report
