    7:04 PMmatthew wilson​did you acentedently delete it



    7:26 PMCyberian_Tiger​Most CPUs and motherboards have like a notch or marking to line up and drop in.



    7:27 PMCyberian_Tiger​Love those m.2 but screw that screw. I got one for chirstmas yet had to wait a few days because it didn't come with the screw to put it in



    7:37 PMCyberian_Tiger​ PCI express?



    7:47 PMSusanne Christ​'ello!

    7:52 PMSusanne Christ​is that the one with a mask as logo?



    7:53 PMCyberian_Tiger​Not a big fan of the RGB lighting, have the time I looks like a unicorn exploded inside most cases these days.



    7:55 PMSusanne Christ​when i bought my MB i bought the one w the mask logo bc it looked super cool. but it was DoA now i wondee if it waa the heatshield thing lol



    7:55 PMCyberian_Tiger​Yeah I hate how you can not turn off that light on the ps4 controller. I swear that thing drains the battery the most.



    7:55 PMSusanne Christ​my mb told me my rams were busted so i tried replacing thoes first and took everythinf apart for days just to find out it was the mb



    7:56 PMCyberian_Tiger​Oh yeah, those SSD and M.2 are a god send. HHD can take a dirt nap for all I care.



    7:59 PMCyberian_Tiger​I have the NZXT case, super clean, although I do admit I just shoved all the cables in that PSU basement. No cable management, just cables shoved out of view.

    8:09 PMCyberian_Tiger​[message retracted]



    8:10 PMCyberian_Tiger​I do like when they remaster a game and add a few QoL improvements. Always a bonus.

    8:13 PMCyberian_Tiger​I wouldnt say that to loud the fans will eat you alive



    8:14 PMCyberian_Tiger​[message retracted]

    Lady Dimitrescu, I presume?



    0:59 - All I need for my new PC is a GPU but sadly they're stupid expensive right now

    12:40 - Yep, the Resident Evil Village lady sure is tall

    15:58 - Why is no one talking about Love, Death & Robots? Oh, it's because the last 14 episodes aren't as good as the first four, isn't it?

    26:40 - There's still nothing to spoil in WandaVision

    29:41 - The first half hour of The 7th Victim is great! The rest of it is dumb and boring but the climax is hilarious!

    6:59 PMJared Knisely​staring is rude



    7:00 PMFreaKill​Hi, Andrew!



    7:01 PMJared Knisely​i was curious how long it would take you before you released you could use your pc outside of the bios but someone ruined it



    7:02 PMJared Knisely​could not use it



    7:04 PMFreaKill​Lol, I had a similar problem with "eye-contact" I kept thinking that I should look in both eyes, so I would sometimes stare at somebody, trying to unfocus my eyes to literally go eye to eye.



    7:05 PMJared Knisely​[message retracted]



    7:06 PMJared Knisely​they should be in the range of 300 to 400



    7:07 PMJared Knisely​but andrew you need to experience that in your first pc build



    7:08 PMJared Knisely​used ones are an option

    7:39 PMFreaKill​There's a bit of noise when you exhale, but nothing very serious. Not sure about sound quality compared to usual - seems OK?



    7:43 PMWarren Lewis​rule #1 of the satanic cult: don't talk about satanic cult.



    7:52 PMFreaKill​That movie sounded hilarious , I usually don't enjoy watching movies that go dumb, but I love hearing about such trainwrecks.



    7:53 PMSean Hockenbury​didnt like the long sword?



    7:59 PMSean Hockenbury​switch axe is a real good choice



    7:59 PMSean Hockenbury​i never liked gunlance



    8:00 PMSean Hockenbury​how did the charge blade feel to you?



    8:01 PMJared Knisely​more dmg



    8:01 PMJared Knisely​more tricks



    8:05 PMJared Knisely​arch mode increases combos and damage u do in world so i would assume its the same in the new one

    Molehill Mountain Episode 221 – Nothing To Spoil

    Sure we can talk about WandaVision!



    0:22 - CD Projekt Red lied about not crunching its employees so this time it won't promise not to crunch!

    3:15 - Just how tall is that Resident Evil Village vampire woman with the awesome hat?

    7:18 - Want to play Bowser's Fury but already own Super Mario 3D World on the Wii U and don't want to buy it again? Nintendo says, "Tough!"

    35:58 - How can I spoil WandaVision when nothing happens beyond what's already revealed in the premise and show trailers?

    7:02 PMDavid Gonzalez​Hi



    7:05 PMKageNekoSamax​hey there



    7:05 PMLynndy Lee​hello



    7:06 PMSean Hockenbury​hello andrew



    7:11 PMCyberian_Tiger​I agree, but nintendo just doesn't drop prices on their games untill they well into next console



    7:12 PMCyberian_Tiger​I worked retail, selling the Wii U was hard. The one question that keep popping up was "Isn't this a Wii Addon or something?"



    7:13 PMCyberian_Tiger​I enjoy nintendo's games but not intendo themselves.



    7:14 PMCyberian_Tiger​I don't think they'll do it stand alone. They'll want that full 60.



    7:15 PMSean Hockenbury​what would you like to see nintendo do for the 35th anniversary of Zelda?



    7:16 PMCyberian_Tiger​Majora's Mask on switch. I'm so close to getting it on the 3DS



    7:18 PMCyberian_Tiger​Captain Toad: Hairy Leggy Edition ... you know...



    7:21 PMKageNekoSamax​japanes are very proud of their work to drop prices



    7:21 PMKageNekoSamax​i haven't seen a good capcom sale ever on steam



    7:22 PMCyberian_Tiger​I think if they just called it a Wii 2 or something I might have helped but I no knowledge in market



    7:23 PMCyberian_Tiger​I think the other question we got was "if the controller broke can we get a new one:



    7:24 PMCyberian_Tiger​Soo many dick jokes when the new Name was announced



    7:27 PMofficialMX​my pc got a recovery error



    7:28 PMCyberian_Tiger​I still have the Cartidge for Majora's Mask. But the console is long gone



    7:29 PMCyberian_Tiger​OH yeah the Movement in the MM was wonderful.



    7:30 PMCyberian_Tiger​I think we should start defining the Words "Remake" and "HD"



    7:30 PMCyberian_Tiger​HD should be like upper textures and smoother FPS



    7:30 PMCyberian_Tiger​Remake should be like game being built from the ground up



    7:31 PMKageNekoSamax​wasn't majoras remade for 3ds?



    7:32 PMCyberian_Tiger​Yeah it wasa



    7:32 PMCyberian_Tiger​I Agree, I love my xbox but damnit MS, just use numbers for me please



    7:34 PMCyberian_Tiger​Revolution



    7:34 PMCyberian_Tiger​was the Wiis code name



    7:34 PMKageNekoSamax​i know the term switch, but still wont relate it to the bad meaning since most of then are normal



    7:35 PMCyberian_Tiger​I remember them saying Revolution was gonna be the name but SWITCHED...to Wii, because it sounded like We as in We like to Play



    7:36 PMCyberian_Tiger​Tony Hawk HD was a remake from the ground up. Man that one was a rough game.



    7:37 PMCyberian_Tiger​Well Super SMASH bros now sounds like a Porn company.



    7:38 PMCyberian_Tiger​I mean you got Banger Bros...
