Do you guys want to do a stabby chat this Friday, December 12? I'm not available at the usual time but could squeeze in an hour for a European edition at 12 noon Pacific Standard Time. That's 3pm (EST) in New York and 8pm (GMT) in London.

My childhood goal was to be an astronaut. I wanted to be the first man to stab somebody on the moon.

Reminder: stabby chat starts in 10 hours. I may be a little late but I will be sure to stop by for a while.

I missed this because I was with a friend all day. I think I missed an invite to a Unity game by one of you guys, too. I was distracted, I'm sorry!

It was ME!

For those that were there, my wife is fine. She's allergic to something environmental at her work and has been getting hives every day at 10am.

Also, I'll be up for some co-op any time Sunday. Send me an email (personal or through THB) a little bit in advance if you want to set something up. Email alert will go to my phone and we can play. However, will the multiplayer story give anything away for the main story? Should I finish the main story first? I've only just entered sequence 4, so most of my skills aren't available yet... so I'll be worse than expected.

For our ninja turtle ideas, I only play with long weapons, a la Donatello. I have not unlocked any multiplayer skills yet, so I won't be any help there.

Didn't some French politician make a big deal out of this a while ago, calling it right-wing propaganda?

Still a better good vs evil story than Brotherhood.

Yeah, he did! "the game feeds on the same anti-republican sentiment that fuels the far-right extremists of today"

Cesare could have been a great villain if they showed some other side of him, that wasn't him murdering everyone or stroking his mustache and laughing maniacally. They made him into a cartoon character. Ubisoft knows how to make oustanding villains though (Vaas, Pagan Min).

Basically, do the multiplayer missions all take place AFTER the main campaign thus showing you who's in control/alive etc, or give away any plot points?

You're getting too predictable, Joey. Glad to say not even work stopped me from chatting. Just made a mad dash to the library until my lunch break was nearly over.

Wow, you're really anxious for a stabby chat! I'm booked up for the next two weeks but will have some time off from November 21 to November 29. Do you guys want to try for a chat that week? Note that November 26 is Thanksgiving in the U.S. (and also happens to be my birthday).

It's been like a year since the last one! Wink

My parents are in town Nov 26-Sunday, so unfortunately that doesn't work for me.

Let's try to get a good guest in here. no way @PatriceDez would want to make an appearance for his most loyal fanbase, so maybe aim a little differently. Innocent

For those that were interested in, or shaking their heads at, my plywood/wallpaper project, here you go...

Step 1: Buy plywood, cut to size
Step 2: Sand the edges and corners down so they aren't sharp with 220# sandpaper
Step 3: Spraypaint with metallic paint (in this case a bronze) around the edge to make the faux frame
Step 4: put wallpaper down with Mod Podge
Steps 4.2-4.3: take paper back up, then put it back down until you're sick of trying to get the bubbles out (the small ones come out as it dries anyway)
Step 5: Mod Podge over the top of it all to seal it, using healthy amounts, at least 2 coats
Step 6: spray a clear sealer over the back and edges of the plywood (you don't want raw plywood exposed
Step 7: mount with a french cleat system, somehow getting lucky to hit two studs without trying - this sucker isn't coming down
Step 8: post on THB for all the glory

Who's up for a THB chat this weekend sometime to talk about our thoughts and comments on the Origins reveals?

Guess I'll try and remind people of this thread.

Going by Cheese's time frame (and using it as a base for reference), that gives any UK users until 10:00 pm (22:00) before we can start chatting. Anyone more eastern of that will probably be asleep by then and anyone west (like Hawaii) should be around mid day.

Is that accurate? I just went by a random Google time zone converter.

That's going by his Sunday schedule, though.

it's 8 hours, so it would be later

unless european people want to chime in, we can plan for:

Sunday, June 25
Honolulu 11AM
San Diego 2PM
Indianapolis 5PM
Toronto 5PM
London 10PM
Stockholm 11PM
Paris 11PM
Cairo 11PM

I'll be late as I have a picnic to attend from 11:30-4, but I'll leave near 2. That will give all you scrubs time to discuss and solve any hieroglyphics that Gerund and I don't get to tomorrow. Wink

Re: Hawaiian trends in mainland conversation from last Stabby Chat

See, they can't even spell poke correctly the trend is moving so fast... (or all the names with poke are already taken so they've moved to poki out of necessity).

Both of the above signs are spelled incorrectly. I think it's an attempt to elicit a two syllable pronunciation: po-kee or po-kay.
