I've been a gamer since a young age, my first experiences were with my old Atari 2600. Nowadays I'm mostly a PC guy but I also play board games when I have the group for it. And I love wrenching on cars besides.

No New Content WRUP

Yeah we haven't written anything new since before last week. Hopefully Cody will write something about Tomb Raider, I know he's got that. I do think Greywolfe has something coming soon. I have nothing because I've stopped all spending on games in order to begin purchasing my new PC parts.

I just got my case yesterday. Fractal Design, Define R6 in gunmetal. Love it. Now I'm impatient and I really want to buy the rest of the list. But I have to be responsible and "pay bills" and "buy food" and other things less important than building a new PC, says my brain. But I'm keeping an eye on sales and it looks like I'll be able to save myself even more money as I go along. So I'm happy. Read more

Now to the WRUP

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

WRUP

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

Monster Hunter World On PC – A Review From Scroo

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

WRUP Hunter

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
