I know I post in here rarely and it's almost always self centered and often pessimistic ranting, but typing shit out helps me sometimes.

I'm hitting that major depression/dread phase of all this. I'm in SoCal, near LA where cases are sky rocketing. Our own cases as of yesterday are at 54 with 2 deaths. I'm at the point where I really don't think my sister (asthmatic, overweight) and my mom (72, just got over pneumonia where she had to be hospitalized for 48 hours) are going to make it through this. It's impossible to socially distance. Our grocery stores are picked clean at all times. I can't use the "vulnerable hours" because I refuse to let my mom or dad go out with me. So I'm getting take out every day and I know that's when I'll contract it, and bring it home to everyone.
Jesus, dude, that sucks. There's no good answer to this. All we can really do is hope for the best for you and your family. Make sure to take care of you and yours and be as safe as possible.

Could you travel somewhere more remote to get a more stock-resilient grocery? Grab some non-perishables just in case the virus blows up around you? Get groceries delivered (even if at a premium) from a more distant place?

Seriously, best of luck. Stay safe.

So State of Decay 2 will always start on my main monitor (I have 2 monitors and one tv hooked up to the pc and I play the games on the tv)... A lot of games do not support specifying which monitor to use so it'S no that surprising. I can simply hit Shift+Win+Left/Right to move the window to my tv.

The thing with SoD2 tho is that it goes back to the main monitor every single time I alt tab out of it OR anytime you go through a loading screen.... First game I ever see do that and this is really dumb...

I'm sorry dude, I know it's not useful but keep the faith and just take the precautions you can

Because owning old ass games is dope
True but I have other old ass games that I actually like and have played.

I'm blaming half price books for offering them for like five dollars and my poor impulse control

Sorry about what you're going through. Is it possible to have the take out delivered to your home with no contact?

Thanks for replies duders. I'm taking all the CDC precautions and doing a good job of that. Unfortunately for delivery every service is majorly backed up here, to the point that grocery delivery is unavailable for the foreseeable future.

I get that SoCal is a crazy hub but Jesus, I'm a few minutes outside Toronto and it's not nearly so bonkers out here. Good luck!

HOLY SHIT... I really need to keep the shadowplay stuff running in the background because my car in State of Decay 2 just did the same thing that happened to Vinny and Ryan in that Sleeping Dog quicklook hahahaha

Maybe it's a sentiment to how good this past couple weeks of GB has been, but Ryan's mic going into the red during this really feels like half the fun here, like the recording cannot contain how stoked he was about the silly way the game broke.

Huh, despite having nearly 30 games on UPlay, I think buying Warlords of New York just now is the first time I actually put money directly into the store. It had absolutely zero personal payment information stored in it. No address or name; no anything. I guess that's a testament to their ubiquity because all of this was either from Steam, freebies on EGS, or freebies on Uplay itself. But they finally got me.

Outside of Abby's mic doing some weird quality jumps, I don't think I would notice that this is just a Skype call

Abby said she doesn't really like FPS games that don't have ADS. She could move the weapon to the center, it's halfway there :D
