Diablo 3: Akkhan’s/Invoker Hybrid Bombardment Build Review

Since I haven’t played a Crusader in a while, I decided to rebirth one to give the Hybrid Bombardment build a try. This build makes use of several sets, but is actually fairly easy to gear up (especially as a 3rd character in the season).

Diablo 3: The Typhon’s Veil Hydra Build Review

So I finally got my Hydra build up and running. Sadly, it was far easier to gear this character than my demon hunter, but that’s understandable as my demon hunter was my starter. However, before I tried this build, I was going Legacy of Dreams just to give it a shot. It felt a little awkward since I had no idea what I was doing and made the decision to try the new wizard set instead.

Biden/Harris Are Declared Victors As President/Vice President of the US

After a few long days of waiting for votes to be tabulated and through what looked to be a very tight race, the AP News declared Biden/Harris victorious in their race against Trump for the spot of President and VP respectively. Given the circumstances with COVID-19, a collapsed economy, a divided nation and turmoil surrounding the world, this possibly has been one of the most important elections in our time. Now, that we have the declared victors, the real question is what the road ahead looks like. This is my speculation post.

Boom Beach: More on Progress, Post-Mega Crab

Last Friday, we had the Halloween version of the Mega Crab. It’s probably the most difficult Mega Crab of the year just because of the scare mortars which induces panic. Before talking about my experience, I wanted to give some small updates on my own progress.

Shaw Brothers Marco Polo Movie Review

Just re-watched the Shaw Brothers Marco Polo movie for the umpteenth time and it never fails to entertain. Around this period, the Shaw Brothers had Chang Cheh spearheading many of the classics and this was no exception. This movie served as a vehicle for pushing the Lizard, Kuo Chui, into the spotlight while acting as another feather in the cap for the pairing of Fu Sheng and Chi Kuan-Chun.

Shaw Brothers Five Shaolin Masters Movie Review

I haven’t done one of these Shaw Brothers movie reviews in a while and decided to write about my favorite Shaw Brothers movie of all time: The Five Shaolin Masters. While I had seen other Shaw Brothers pictures prior to this one, of them all, this movie made the most impact on me. I probably have seen this movie at least a hundred times and as a child I would re-enact certain scenes, believing I was one of the shaolin masters seeking revenge. Later as an adult, I could appreciate a lot more what this movie was about.

Path of Exile: Updated My Toxic Rain Pathfinder and Possible Return to Aura Stacking?

After my disappointment with my attempt at my own build using a Cast on Critical Strike bow Ascendant, I decided to take a closer look at the real core of what I was going after: a use of Asenath’s Chant. Asenath’s Chant, while rare, is a pretty cool item and I noticed it was used on a bunch of Toxic Rain builds. As I now have two of these, I decided to give this build a 2nd try.
