Thoughts on the Update 37 Patch 4 Release Notes

On Wednesday, February 21st of 2018 the latest patch release notes were unveiled. There is a lot to cover, so my replies shall be limited to what I consider to be the simplest.

 *Note: Since this update has not yet been released as of the date of this posting, I am forced to utilize pictures from previous posts for highlight purposes.

The Anniversary Event!

The return of the Anniversary Event means players will be engaged in the grind for whatever item that a number of specified farmed materials can be traded. Be that item a cosmetic or an item that one might only gain if they ran a quest or raid to which they may not have access. Some of the items offered are sub-par, while others are quite…

Video games for Beginners

Same Difference

I sat in the movie theater and could hear everyone’s eyes roll.  It was after one of those stupid one liners that really wanted to be taken very seriously. Looking back, I cannot recall the name of the movie but I do recall the distinct feeling that I’ve been taken for a fool. I was done with Hollywood.

I wanted more from my entertainment.  I wanted something weird, wild and not rubber stamped by a bunch of rich white guys.  Desperate for a chance to partake in more creative story telling, I revisited a thing that I had long written off.

They were Terrible in the Beginning

When I was four or five, I got the Nintendo.  It came with two games, Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt.  Occasionally, I would play Tetris at a friend’s house.

These games are classics and many think of them with beloved nostalgia.  For…

The Reasons 90s Kids Back To Gaming

By Digressingme

There are several reasons 90s kids back to gaming. I’m referring to 90s generation kids who had stopped playing games and just started to play again recently.

These Are Some of The Reasons 90s Kids Back To Gaming:

The Liberty of Being An Adult

This happens because we know that kids in the 90s have grown older now, not necessarily mature as well. The 90s kids who had been restricted by their parents to play, now have a better chance of back to gaming. People who can ban them are just their bosses and the thirsty for attention spouses. That’s the first of the reasons 90s kids back to gaming.

Also, read why you shouldn’t let your kids playing the new Street Fighter.


Financially Better

This is quite possible, considering the average 90s child is now more established or at least able to earn his own income. With the occurrence of this, then…

DDO: No tears for Syp

Bio Break

One of the facets that I regret about MMOs is that all of this attention and artistry is paid to enemy mobs that we never really get to examine up close because, you know, of all of the frantic flailing and killing on both sides. So when you get a chance to take a selfie with a friendly mummy, by gum, you DO IT. I’m calling this one “Fred.”

So last Friday evening, we assembled a group to run a couple of Dungeons and Dragons Online dungeons for MJ’s stream at Massively OP. It was MJ, myself, and a few members of Onedawesome, the old Massively DDO guild that still survives — somehow! — to this day.

On tap for that evening was a pair of House P quests. I’ve already done these, but what the heck, it’s always more fun with a group. First up with The Tear of…

Plantronics Rig 400HX Review

Limitless Tech

Todays review comes in the form of the Plantronics Rig 400HX, costing just £45, can these perform better than their low price point?

In the box

With the 400HX you get

  • The microphone

  • The documentation
  • An Xbox code for Dolby Atmos

in-the-box-400hx

Design and Build

Plantronics have done well with their design cohesion as all the Rig headsets share some similarities that make them theirs. They do offer some unique features though to make the different even whilst in-keeping with the ethos they have.

design-overall-400hx

The main frame is all Black, made from a durable plastic like the other Rig headsets and its only really unique identifier is the Green Rig logo on the side. But like the other Rig headsets the frame is replaceable, this means you can swap out the frames to change the style of them. The frames will set you back £11.99…

Lost City of the Naga Queens

Dyson's Dodecahedron

Occasionally when delving through archaic tomes about the prehuman denizens of the world, one comes across references to the Lost City of the Naga Queens somewhere around the Donon Basin. The city is supposedly home to arcane technologies that the Naga Queens once used to attempt to wrest domination of this world from the elven empire.

Lost City of the Naga Queens Lost City of the Naga Queens

Turns out the Nagas never lost it – the defensive energy screen is still in effect, held in place by the pylons their servants maintain to keep the city safe. They just prefer that everyone else forget about the place so they can go about their business. The energy screen protects the city from scrying, teleportation, and from being accessed via other dimensions or planes.
