The Division looks great, but they really dropped the ball here

I like Tom Clancy’s The Division(TM) (and, yes, that’s the last time in this post that I’ll use the whole name), and I think it looks really good. The city is modeled and textured very well, and the guns and gear are lovingly rendered (especially the purple beanie and the stylish slouchie, whatever that means). . . . → Read More: The Division looks great, but they really dropped the ball here

Star Trek Online: Making a Fat Bajoran on Risa. Adventures of Lt. Cmdr. Fatass

I decided to experiment with the character editor to make my Bajoran Female character look more like the reality of myself and many other ‘Muricans with a little (or a lot of) extra weight. Unlike all the other avatars I see in their tiny swimsuits on Risa, Lt. Cmdr. FatAss here has as large a . . . → Read More: Star Trek Online: Making a Fat Bajoran on Risa. Adventures of Lt. Cmdr.

Star Trek Online Graphics Bug: Flying Without a Floater

Even with yesterday’s patch, my studly Joined Trill Admiral in Star Trek Online is so badass that he can fly in the Risa events without a floater. Or at least he’s pretty good at hiding his floater (the jetpack thing used on Risa). The video below shows it. I think it is the outfit he . . . → Read More: Star Trek Online Graphics Bug: Flying Without a Floater

Killzone Shadow Fall is pretty, but stupid

Let’s say you just defeated your enemy by blowing up his planet. Then, apparently feeling guilt, you give the enemy refugees half your planet, because, hey, what could go wrong? I mean you have a (presumably small) population that hates you to the death and not just because you blew up their planet, so it’ll . . . → Read More: Killzone Shadow Fall is pretty, but stupid

Knack is my favorite Playstation 4 game so far

I bought 3 games for my PS4 thanks to Amazon’s buy-2-get-1-free sale: Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall, and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. I haven’t even opened AssCreed, but have tried both Killzone and Knack, and like Knack quite a bit. I’m not normally a platformer kinda guy, but Knack is very well done, mostly fun, . . . → Read More: Knack is my favorite Playstation 4 game so far

Two #LOTRO Videos: Mounted Minstrel and Michel Delving Horse Race

I took two videos in LOTRO recently and thought I would share them.

The first is very short. I was experimenting with NVidia’s ShadowPlay in LOTRO and happened to turn it on just as a not very bright mounted orc started attacking me. I’m posting this to show how dangerous a mounted Minstrel can be. . . . → Read More: Two #LOTRO Videos: Mounted Minstrel and Michel Delving Horse Race

Saints Row IV Powers Video using NVIDIA ShadowPlay

Yesterday I mentioned some of the awesomely fun powers the player has in Saints Row IV. Well today, I have a video showing it. This also gives me a chance to try out NVIDIA’s excellent new ShadowPlay feature.

In the video below, my character (I don’t normally play female characters, but SR4 allows you to . . . → Read More: Saints Row IV Powers Video using NVIDIA ShadowPlay

Zen Pinball recorded with Hauppauge HD PVR 2

Note: I’m truly horrified that I didn’t spell Hauppauge right in either the title or the article. And I knew better… Sorry Hauppauge!

I bought the Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition when it was on sale at Amazon a week or so ago, and finally got a chance to hook it up yesterday. As . . . → Read More: Zen Pinball recorded with Hauppauge HD PVR 2

Fable III Missing Child mission

I’m enjoying Fable III a lot. To some extent, it is a slightly dumbed-down Fable II, but so far, it is extremely well done, and the voice acting is superb (John Cleese, Ben Kingsley, Bernard Hill, Simon Pegg, and more)! I have only played a few hours, so haven’t done any flirting or marriage or . . . → Read More: Fable III Missing Child mission

LOTRO Tour Part 6: Stock to Bree

In my never ending quest to show just how big Middle Earth in LOTRO is, I’m continuing the tour, this time riding from Stock (in the Shire) to Bree.

This is, of course, not the path the Hobbits took to Bree, as they went through the forest and met Tom Bombadil. Sometime, I will show . . . → Read More: LOTRO Tour Part 6: Stock to Bree
