Other Games and Interests / R6 Siege Free Weekend
« on: November 11, 2016, 10:53:18 AM »
Rainbow 6 Siege is free this weekend, so a few of us are playing it.  I'll be on again tonight playing.  Had 4 of us last night and it was good times.  I recommend getting it loaded up and then playing through at least situation 3 before hopping on to play with friends.  By then you have a pretty good grasp of the mechanics and only takes about 10-15 min to bang out.

General Discussion / Retro Gaming Expo
« on: October 22, 2016, 09:42:26 PM »


Civenge, Liquid and I hit up the portland retro gaming expo again this year.  Nothing major, but happy with what I got.  More depressing was the rapid increases in price of systems I may just have to give up on. TG-16, PC Engine, TG Express were all way hotter than I expected.  Well used/worn Neo Geos were $600 :(  *sigh*  Looks like those wireless 2600 controllers were a steal at $25.  Pretty pleased with that acquisition.

Other Games and Interests / RL Worst Moments
« on: October 20, 2016, 10:51:52 PM »
2 REALLY stuck out.  A nice group fail and Aryne with an epic own goal in Rumble mode.

Wow.  Just... wow.  EVERYONE missed.

Other Games and Interests / RL Best Moments
« on: October 20, 2016, 10:42:02 PM »
Best moments from RL Fun Night.  Top vote getter by the next event (wednesday) wins one rocket league skin!

Icksbin Extreme Angle Save
Icksbin (aka Blank) gets a last minute epic save at an extreme angle.  Also follows it up with another save <5 sec later.  Really, that first one is what we're looking at.


Dritzz Pool Shot
Thranx nails Dritzz, scores goal.  Shouldn't I get credit?  I mean... at LEAST an assist?



Dak Finger Roll
Hoops mode, Dak makes a nice shot that misses but follows up with a smooth little hit that puts it in.  Look at that sultry back spin.


Civenge Slam Dunk
Civenge plays center and slams home a close rebound.  Puts himself on the rim perfectly.



Dak Self Assist
Dak gets a nice hit off the wall and then masterfully follows with a great shot.  Alt-title:Dak Plays with Himself

It's a little over scripted, but pretty funny so far.  Check it out.

Other Games and Interests / Battlefield 1

Could have sworn we had a post on this already... maybe it was just the beta post.

I picked up BF1.  Anyone else grabbing it?  It's $46 via greenman right now.

Other Games and Interests / Rocket League Fun Night and Tourney
« on: October 17, 2016, 06:42:54 PM »


Rocket League Fun Night
Wednesday, 10/19 @ 6P/9E

Rocket League Tourney
Wednesday, 10/26 @ 6P/9E

2 Game nights, bring yourself, bring friends!!!  We're all terrible, even Dak who claims some excellence (and relative to some of us... eeeehhhhh yea).  Watch out for Civenge tho, he's kinda a ringer.  We'll poke about this week just throwing together random teams/games and game modes.  Next week, we'll setup a small tourney of 2v2 or, if we have a ton of interest, 3v3.  No mutators, DFH Stadium.  We'll have a 2nd thread to organize the tourney after this wednesday's open night.

I do this every year, this year I turned it into a google form because I'm arriving at PAX last minute and don't have time to proctor the quiz in person as I usually do.

Anyhoo, take this at your leisure.  I'll grade them all after PAX.  (so, next tuesday)
