Well I've been putting together a parts list for a new PC build and it seems like I can do it for a lot less than I was figuring I'd have to spend. I won't need a new GPU right away because I won't be getting a new monitor right away for higher resolution. So that will save some money up front. I've also got the hard drives I need already so I don't need to buy those. But I'm going to need a new case, CPU, motherboard, PSU, and RAM. After that, I can work toward a GPU and monitor separately to make the whole project more affordable. Read more
But then, I had a slow and dawning realization. I’d lived like this before. As you’ll recall, I’m an OLD MAN. And I grew up in the time of dinosaurs and fossils and sun religions.
Look, nobody ever said we were professionals or that we had deadlines and that we would be on time with everything here. We have a reputation to uphold after all. So a late WRUP or two is to be expected. Get off my back. Read more
On top of all this, there’s the problem of “Danny Don’t You Know.”
To put this into perspective, I want to be quite clear that I’m on board with that song. So on board, in fact, that I think it’s the VERY best song they’ve ever done before. There’s such a quiet sincerity that flows from the lyrics to the music to the tone of the song that it feels sort of oddly out of place with the rest of the album. It’s oddly difficult to marry this quiet, sincere side of the band to the prior side, which is mainly about sex and drugs and rock and roll and hilarious one-liners.
Last night was a birthday party. Hopefully someone with their head screwed on straight will write a better WRUP and replace this one...
I might be getting Camaro to rebuild so that's potentially exciting. Gonna go look at it today.
What are you guys playing this weekend? Read more
About six months ago now, give or take, I started seeing some ads for Monster Hunter World and I thought it looked pretty exciting. Not just beautifully rendered, which it is, but that it might just finally be time to jump into the series. I also noticed that this was going to be a console exclusive for a time and I almost picked it up then. But I decided I'd rather wait for the PC release because I'd much rather have the options that come with a desktop version. Stick with me guys, this is a long one. Read more
Well the PC release of Monster Hunter World has been a huge success driving sales to over ten million copies. And people say PC gaming is dying. I'll have a review of my experience with the beast brawler going up tomorrow morning.
It's been slow I think for most of us. Or maybe it was just those firefighters that Verizon throttled and made upgrade to a new, more expensive unlimited plan before they could make use of their wireless network during the Mendocino fire complex. Read more
Right now on the ol' Steam you can pick up the starter edition of Ubisoft's For Honor, 100% free. Best thing about this is that you're actually getting a product for free. This isn't going to suddenly make you pay for a full version down the line. You don't even have to install it if you don't want to. Just click the "install" button and Steam will register For Honor to your account so you can enjoy it whenever you like. Read more
Styx: Shards of Darkness is an old school, sight and sound based, straight up stealth game. If you’re used to Action-Stealth games of the modern age (an oxymoron if there ever was one) this game might shock your sense even more so than its predecessor. The sequel to Master of Shadows, Shard of Darkness ups the ante on its level design, lighting systems, and difficult paths even for stealth veterans. As always I’ll be taking a look at those areas and more, and see where the game might have a few faults. Starting where we always do in a past due review, let’s see what the game’s animations look like. Read more
