Yes, and she is planning on getting 1 and 2.

We've been gaming for a very long time. The old Atari 400 and 800 then the 2600. She played those some, but when we got a PC and Wizardry came out.... Well that was the tipping point.

I would have send my copies to her for free. One of the later ones came with my motherboard as a promotional game and it was highly raved but I could not never like or get into that game after multiple attempts.

I never liked little characters in 3rd person view. It could easily turn me off from a game. A more recent experience was with Dead by Daylight. I disliked the camera angle and controls so much I stopped playing it after a few attempts.

The only game with solo 3rd person view that I liked to date was Hitman.


On topic, seeing how easily and commonly compromised company servers are getting hacked makes me laugh at the illusion of cyber security. You can do your best and secure all your information and some company gets lousy and neglects securing or properly decommissioning their server and your confidential info gets compromised, effectively nullifying all your efforts.

We are at a point where people should be using the temp credit cards for online purchase of any kind. Cards that work a lot like a gift card. Use vm for contact numbers, mailing addresses from Mailboxes, etc.

If you're talking W1 & 2 she hasn't bought them yet. I'll pay for shipping.

Security? Yeah. My wife was still working for the Feds when that breach happened a few years back. What a mess! I still can't believe that information was on a system that was accessible over the Internet. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

No they are not.

As it turns out I receive this warning when I switch between my phone, laptop, and tablet. Google picks up on the change in the address of the machine.

I ignore them since it's a false positive.

Yes, they are now after you. You are marked for extinction. RUN. Run fast, run far. Don't look back, they will be right behind you.
