Raids week 191

Micki's Delirium

Raids 191 were Wednesday September 9 and Saturday September 12. Osi, Hamster and I also did a 3 person KT on Friday September 11.

Wednesday

1. Too Hot to Handle LN

Someone had 15 min left on the raid timer for PN, so we started with THTH. I completely forgot to screenshot this run, only got screenshots after completion. Forcy was tanking, I was sunbursting again, I’m unsure if Milamba was discoing or sunbursting or both. I had a suspicion that something had changed with the coolant tanks. Some months ago when we were testing, the coolant tanks did nothing during the last phase. Last week it seemed like the Titan didn’t come back if you didn’t complete them. I wanted to test this, but coolants got completed. Completion time: 11 min, 53 s. loot: 64 forge runes, 25 threads of fate.

How Big a Deal is the Bethesda Acquisition?

The Games Freak

Xbox’s $7.5 billion Bethesda acquisition is some of the biggest news ever in gaming. We covered it over at Generation Xbox, and it’s clear that gamers across the world were shocked and excited by the news. It dominated the news cycle at a crucial time too. Xbox cleverly announced the purchase the day before pre-orders for the new Xbox Series X and S went live. It was undoubtedly a smart move to push pre-orders, and it was seismic for the gaming industry as a whole. But how big a deal is the Bethesda acquisition?

We’ve known for a while now that Xbox have been playing the long game. They started prepping for next-gen way back in 2016, sacrificing the current gen Xbox One family. They were fighting a losing battle: Sony had market share and the award-winning exclusives to keep their gamers happy. The games industry isn’t one that…

Now on Dungeon Masters Guild: The Arrow Knight

Superior Realities

Continuing my foray into the world of tabletop RPG design, I’ve recently published my first rules supplement on the Dungeon Masters Guild.

The Arrow Knight is a bundle of new content intended to make archery a valid playstyle for paladins in Fifth Edition. It includes a set of variant rules for the base paladin class, a new subclass suitable for play with both Arrow Knights and traditional paladins, and three new magic items themed around paladins and archery.

This is loosely based on my own paladin, whom I’ve been playing almost every week since I started playing D&D. I tweaked the paladin rules to make her work as an archer, and this is an expanded and polished version of the homebrew I made for her. One of the magic items in this bundle, Crowsight, is her bow. The campaign she’s a part of is finally winding down, so putting together…

Exploring Eberron Review

Cannibal Halfling Gaming

Raat shi anaa. The story begins. Rising from the Last War brought Keith Baker’s dungeon punk setting of Eberron back to 5th Edition in hardcover form, but it was the earlier Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron that first brought a world of pulp, noir, and wide magic to the latest version of Dungeons and Dragons – and it also opened up the door for anyone to create Eberron content on the DM’s Guild. When I talked with Baker at PAX Unplugged 2019, the curious implications of that came up. Since it made it to the final three of the Setting Search in 2002 Wizards of the Coast has owned Eberron; while Baker was often brought back to work on supplements and novels, the final creative control didn’t belong to him. He could talk about ‘his’ Eberron, and thankfully did so quite often and at length, building a great rapport with…

Merge the Physical and Digital Worlds of Your Twitch or YouTube Streams Through Creative Uses of Green Screen Technology

In Third Person

Green screens work incredibly well for the purposes of background removal. However, the application of green screen technology doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing proposition. Inspired by MissMollyMakes, I incorporated green screen technology into my physical background. Here’s how you can do something similar!

Best shoot em up games (and best times to buy)

Gamer Savings

The best shoot em up games on PS4, Switch, Xbox and PC that i’ve played, or shmups or STGs as they are sometimes called, all cost me no more than 14.99. Check out my quick video to see my overview and mini reviews.

Subscribe for more videos here

For the sake of value, gameplay, longevity and quality, I feel completely qualified to label these as the best shoot ‘em up games ever made.

My previous article on 107 ways to save money on games has been doing well so thank you, i’m glad you enjoyed that.

Since I’m also going to be talking about pricing and finding things at the best price, I’ll often be referring to the UK price but the discount percentages themselves are often the same across all countries so no matter where you are, you can get a general sense of what the main price is…

Why I’m Not Getting a PlayStation 5 on Day 1

3rd World Geeks

It was Sony’s time to show why gamers had to purchase their upcoming PlayStation 5. They put on a really good show last week with their entire PlayStation 5 Showcase to make their case. I saw the show live (which was about 4 am in my area, thank you very much) and I did walk away rather impressed. I wasn’t alone as there were so many positive reactions online. Sony had a good selection of actual gameplay from Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition and the Demon Souls Remastered running on PlayStation 5 hardware. Oh, and the trailer for the (timed) exclusive Final Fantasy XVI didn’t hurt at all!

The PlayStation 5 Showcase also revealed what gamers really wanted to know about Sony’s upcoming console: the price and when it was going out. We did get confirmation that the PlayStation 5 with the Blu-Ray drive will run…

Thank You, Video Games

By: John Wahl

This isn’t the hottest of Hot Takes, but 2020 has been an absolute shit show on an apocalyptic level. Just to recap how the year has gone so far: Kobe Bryant is dead, police violence is roaring, racial tensions are boiling over, the world is fire, except in the parts where it’s flooding, we almost started World War 3, white supremacy is on the rise, our government is corrupt, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead.

Did we miss anything? Oh yeah! The global pandemic which our government is downplaying but has left over 900,000 people dead and the economy in ruins.

It would be incredibly easy to curl up into a fetal position and just rock back and forth until New Years Eve, ignoring all of the scary shit in the world. Unfortunately we don’t really have that option and despite those urges we must attempt to…

Ichors of the Green Lords

Dyson's Dodecahedron

Ichor Map Progress

A bright green ichor seeps and flows along the halls of this place. It moves slowly and ripples even when there is no breeze or outside disturbance. The effects of the ichor upon living creatures is unpleasant and best not described here…

Finding the source of the ichor in the caverns beneath makes things no clearer. Two pools of it accumulate down here, but this is not where it ends, this appears to be where it begins. Drops of the green ichor fall upwards from the pools in 12 and 14 to the ceiling above and seep through the stone to the two main pools above in 4 and 8 respectively.

The grand chamber at 8 (and the mezzanine above at 18) are where the “green lords” hold court. Six people dressed in heavy…
