Other Games and Interests / Diablo 3 Big Patch Incoming
« on: August 06, 2014, 01:04:21 pm »
Lots and lots of changes, and ladders ("seasons") as well. Looks like a lot of classes got buffed, including monk and demon hunter. Anyone want to play some season stuff together?

Can't wait, I took a break but will be playing a bit more in preparation. :)

CR spent almost 15 minutes discussing their flight model, some of their design thoughts and what some target areas for control improvement are.

« on: June 12, 2014, 10:11:33 pm »
My FRAPS bugged and didn't get screens, but made it to Wave 14 with 107k score after the latest patch.

Post what you got, now that we can't eject cheese! I'll try and follow-up later with some screens.

Star Citizen / TNGS Ships in Your Hangar
« on: June 06, 2014, 06:49:44 pm »
The two finalists for TNGS are modeled, in-game, and in your hangar. Everyone gets a deluxe hangar for the weekend to view them, which is pretty exciting. Both ships look pretty cool.

Definitely check it out!

Star Citizen / Fix and Customization for HOTAS Users
« on: June 05, 2014, 03:44:28 pm »

This is how you can edit your HOTAS. I find it immensely improved by simply switching yaw and roll. Twisting to yaw did not feel right, but twisting to roll definitely does.

This will also allow you to assign extra functions to unused buttons, I believe, freeing up your hard from doing a ton of work on the keyboard. Will spend some time this evening and see how I do in the swarm sim.

Who else is in? I'm not a big-time MOBA player, but if anyone wants to group up, I just got in. Going to noob it up here for a bit tonight and see what trouble I can get into.

General Discussion / Net Neutrality Is Going Away
« on: April 24, 2014, 11:25:40 am »
This is an insanely important topic to everyone here:

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/24/technology/fcc-new-net-neutrality-rules.html

This means that your ISP can now begin charging websites and web services extra for bandwidth usage - and this means that, if you use a paid-for-service, it will become expensive, and if you use a free service, it will likely get a fee attached. Hell, this website may get slower or we'll be expected to pay more for our meager bandwidth usage.

If this goes into effect, this means F2P MMOs could become a thing of the past, and could have greater implications on multiplayer games. It may have little or no effect for larger, profitable services, but this is Comcast and other ISPs simply squeezing the market for more money.

Personally, I'm looking into options. I would love to see ISPs that come out against this new rule, because I would rather pay them than pay for a sleazy, greedy company. And this will likely have ramifications for those who live outside of the US too. This will kill a lot of start-ups and innovation, depending on how it's implemented. The internet should be an equalizing force in our society - instead, we are subjecting it to oligarchical principles.

Star Citizen / HOTAS Reviews on Reddit
« on: April 21, 2014, 04:05:03 pm »
Here's a little compilation of videos from Reddit:

http://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/23m35v/a_round_up_of_youtube_reviews_of_various_hotas/

I think the X-55 video sold me on getting it - I had been waiting to decide, but a lot of the qualities he talks about look good. The toggle switches sound good for assigning Newtonian mode and a few other SC-only goodies.

Gadgets, Gizmos, and Computers / New machine quirks
« on: February 16, 2014, 05:43:06 pm »
I have a few quirks about my new build and wanted to get a more general consensus.

First and foremost, the CPU temperature on 3rd party monitoring programs spikes oddly. On Open Monitor, all the temps are fine except for "Temperature #6," which will spike from 33 C to 88 or 120 C, and then drop back down (far too rapidly to be accurate). I'm guessing I have a busted heat sensor for one gauge, but has anyone else seen something similar? Just want to make sure I'm not killing my new baby. Additionally, on Speefan, CPU overall temp is locked at 128 C but core temps are much lower. However, the MSI monitoring software shows it around 30 or 40 C and never much more, and it goes up and down as I'd expect it to.

Secondly, I can see my slave drive in BIOS, but it isn't showing up in Windows or Disk Management. Anyone have a fix for that? Again, I am using the MSI BIOS so I'm stuck with their stuff for managing it.

Star Citizen / Anyone else watching the supermassive EVE fight?

Besides not really being an EVE player, I can appreciate the time and effort and what's happening. At the same time - man, that lag show makes me really glad that SC won't have thousands of ships in the same spot being rendered on my machine.

DayZ Mod / Geared but solo...
« on: December 31, 2013, 04:08:24 pm »
Hey guys,

So far I have literally not killed anyone and only been killed once by a crazy axe guy when I had no weapon (that was fun!). But frankly, I do not like the solitary playstyle, and much prefer a squad.

Anyway, I'm pretty well geared now, M4 with ACOG and 100 rounds of ammo, doing okay with water and food for the moment too. My character is parked at a barracks north of Kamenka (there's a new military complex there). Would love to meet up with some people.

gwink13 should be my steam ID. I may not be around much in the next couple of days for new years shenanigens.
