    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    The last wave of pirate swarm is pretty crazy now. A whole bunch of P52s spawn, like a lot. At least a half-dozen of them are friendly, it was hard to count in all the chaos. Once you wipe out the enemy P52s, a goddamn Hammerhead spawns as the final boss. The allied P52s help fight it. I was...

    World of Warcraft Classic

    There was a bug where you could get xp from raid groups in dungeons. So people were farming them with cleave groups.

    World of Warcraft Classic

    Yeah the streamers don't even matter now. They just get lost in sea of humanity. Servers are so flooded they and all their followers are only a blip. Meanwhile, yeah, Classic has been good as long as you can get in. I got to 11 in a night on Grobulous (rppvp) but it was so jammed with people I...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I can tell it's a free fly since there's a ton of mining questions in chat, that system is confusing as fuck. Once you figure it out it's pretty neat. But that's true for the whole game. Today was the cutoff time for $0 CCUs before they get deleted, so I was in a panic last night trying to...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Not that you need to lead or aim anymore, with auto gimbals. Finally gimbals are useful for HOTAS players. It ended up working similar to elite:dangerous gimbals - autoaim when you are 'close enough'. My Arrow feels great with the new flight model. One thing I haven't really nailed down yet is...

    Classic World of Warcraft Content Progression Revealed

    As someone who raided way back in classic, I can guarantee you that is exactly what we did too. Damage meters and DKP were a thing. Competion for loot was high since a 40-man raid might have 5+ members of your class. Between raids you had to farm for repairs since money was tighter, and farm...

    BioWare's new IP: Anthem

    I didn't read anything about this game up to now. Installed the demo, the starting location was pretty confusing since there's literally no introduction and a lot of things say 'this only works in the full game'. Fumbled my way into a multi player mission (didnt find any single player), our team...

    Here's some pics of the new business district. It's half-museum, half-commercial area. All the weapons on display are purchasable. The 'stock market' looking area has terminals for buying/selling trade goods from your ship.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I got to check out the new freelancers, 600i variant and hawk before they switched it over to open PTU. Soon as they do that, they revoke access to the new stuff. A shitty move IMO. The MAX seems really nice, it's a fat bird with lots of space. It's main problem is...why not get a Taurus for...

    I picked up a valk -> carrack CCU in case I want to upgrade later. And an arrow. And upgraded my bucc to a vulture (which loans a bucc and a prospector, plus salvage is on the schedule). Yeah it was a good sale for CIG. Making everything flyable during the sale was smart.

    Aegis day was a good day. Seeing that Idris in person is something else. It was also my first time checking out the reclaimer, holy shit that is impressive and absurdly large. I got lost inside. Aegis day was also gank day. Between the eclipse and tali it was a whole bunch of free size 9...

    The Arrow is pretty neat, very fast as sold. They are free to rent so I equipped one with triple Mantis (size 3) guns and took it for a spin. On the way out of Port Olisar, someone in a Mustang started shooting out my rear shields. These things don't have a lot of HP, but I turned around...

    Some PTU action: The saddest tree. Some portions of the planet are just filled with garbage. Air quality is so bad you have bag-heads like this guy. Day vs night in the city. The apartment you spawn in now. Coming back in for a landing. The transition between two environments...

    Yep no issue. Get the cam working in windows first. In SC just hit calibrate in the options menu and it will alt tab out to the calibration tool. If you see dots on your face it will work.

    I got FOIP working today with an old logitech webcam. Super easy to setup, it basically works out of the box. Sure glad I never bought a TrackIR, now this does the same damn thing. Free look in the cockpit is a game changer. Oh and selfie mode is ridiculous. Free look via webcam while...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Played a little tonight on the PTU. It was smooth, had one crash to desktop in about 2 hours. That's a record for this PTU believe me. Started off with the buccaneer, took it on a patrol mission. You go between waypoints in the Yela asteroid belt and shoot at hostiles. Had a voice-acted bit...

    Yeah they are still in court with Crytek over license misuse with the Amazon Lumberyard switch or something along those lines. The PTU does run a lot better now. It's giving me FPS in universe around 40-60 instead of 15. Huge difference. Seems to be more missions, places to go, things to do...

    Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Kickstarter

    This game is pretty fun. Definitely gives me the BG1/BG2 vibe. It is buggy as fuck though. Had a crash right after character creation (it did autosave first at least), and numerous big UI bugs and weirdness. Some of that BG1 vibe comes from the difficulty. I set the game to 100% normal damage...

    WoW; 7th expansion Battle for Azeroth

    Still playing the shit out of my disc priest. I've definitely got into a rhythm with it now and started to heal some mythics. Gear upgrades thus far have felt like they have been decently paced, with a boost at each new tier of dungeon. Heroics jumped me to 325, Mythics 340. At this point...

    WoW; 7th expansion Battle for Azeroth

    Even though you are doing pve, I would look through a pvp guide like this one: https://www.wowhead.com/subtlety-rogue-pvp-guide A lot of it is binding your keys and knowing which ability combos to use. Sometimes it helps to watch someone else do it so maybe check out some subtlety youtubes.

    WoW; 7th expansion Battle for Azeroth

    Gotta learn how to CC to be a good rogue. Sap, Blind, Vanish -> Sap/Stun, Dodge, Sprint away, etc. It becomes instinct after you play a while. You boosted so you're missing that part. Rogues have a deep bag of tricks and have to use them. You can't just run into 4 mobs and chop chop. If you can...

    WoW; 7th expansion Battle for Azeroth

    Got to 114 last night with the warmode bonus. Taking my VE shadow priest through first. Multi-pulling with no problems, can still solo the elites without issue. Sephuz + a speedy azerite boost + Mania has me running around pretty fast. The Drust forest (Crimson Forest) is creepy as hell. Bliz...

    WoW; 7th expansion Battle for Azeroth

    Give subtlety a try. That's the warp speed teleporting attacker. Kills some mobs on the first hit and you can teleport right to the next if they are close enough. Get the belt and shoulders with essence if you can, huge DPS boosts from both for pve leveling in BFA. My rogue uses both and its...

    WoW; 7th expansion Battle for Azeroth

    I joined in the patch-day chaos for a bit. It was a typical pre-expansion patch day: servers crashing, UI mods gone haywire, talents reset, the usual. Still managed to pug Argus, which was easier and went faster than pre-patch despite lack of artifact traits. One big thing though - all 110...

    Single player skirmish mode is pretty fun too, I've been playing that after beating the campaign. No need to worry about special loot or pilots that you might miss if they die. Fights are always relatively even match ups. The Fury mechanic feels less cheap than campaign's Morale buffs. You "gain...

    AMD Wraith Prism CPU Air Cooler Review @ [H]

    I'm still using the Prism, it's good enough for me but I agree it's noticeably loud. After seeing this review I'm thinking of that Reeven Ouranos. Price/performance is crazy on that.

    WoW; 6h expansion Legion

    Arms feels pretty fun on beta too. Overpower is baseline now, replacing Colossus Smash which becomes a cooldown buff. Then there's a talent that lets you proc Executes no matter the target health. Feels good.

    Yeah this game is fucking good. Played for hours yesterday. I'm a battletech fan and already know what everything does, it's probably a big learning curve otherwise. PPC does what? Definitely worth it to learn though. Also had 2 CTDs with the latest nvidia driver, reverted and haven't gotten...

    AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen 2 2700X Zen+ CPU Review @ [H]

    I put together my new 2700X build last night. Used 14CAS 3200 on the Strix X470 board, everything is working great so far. Just running stock for now on the stock cooler, haven't decided what to cool it with yet, will be looking out for that next.

    WoW; 7th expansion Battle for Azeroth

    Arms is great for pvp and pretty easy to play, but it's not as hot right now in PvE as Fury. Frost is amazing right now after being shit-tier all expansion but I wouldn't call the DK newb-friendly. Pallies are the definition of newb friendly by design and Ret is pretty good right now. So that...

    WoW; 6h expansion Legion

    Make another alt, it's what I do. Questing and dungeons are both pretty different just by the recent pacing changes. Ally races are a thing now. I've bounced between lowbie alts and unlocking alt class mounts from broken shores. Then I stop and smell the roses, there's a lot of that going on on...

    I resubbed for a bit, I last played before 7.3 so I missed all the drama around nerfed heirlooms and leveling pace. Started a new warrior with heirlooms, went Prot and queued up for dungeons at 15. Holy crap, fighting through dungeons is slow now. Each fight is a legit, slow affair. Bosses take...
