  1. If you are, which one are you using? And how do you like it? If I wanted to pay Anthem, could I get to play it going Basic route? Would that limit me to only being able to play it for 10 hrs? Do I get full, and unlimited playtime access to it's games in the Vault?

    Fallout 76

    I've only got to play it briefly. I had a technical issue with it not naively supporting 21:9 (3440x1440). So I spent more time trying to get it to work. The highest it would support on my system was 2560x1440. It was stretching the image, and making things look wider. After some time tinkering with the .ini file, I did get it to use 3440x1440. But then the UI was only using the 2560x1440 of it. Not game breaking, but annoying. So I played for a bit. I haven't played a Fallout game in a while, so I forgot how the UI works. I think it's the same as Fallout 4. Like what buttons you hit, to navigate the interface. There does not seem to be any text chat support in game. Which feels really weird as to not have that in this game. But I also heard that there isn't Push to Talk in game. So I guess voice chat is treated like an open mic? But I think you can mute it. I also read that it will be added. 21:9 support is also going to be added. When you start the game it seems to randomly assign you to a server. You can hit the Soical tab and see other players names in your world. You can interact with the name on the list. Add friend, block, and a couple other that I think were for grouping. The 2 times I checked it out had around 25 other players names. Some of the names seemed to be close to my location. But I didn't see any players in game. I only spent about 5 minutes playing. So I'm not quite sure how you do interact with the other players. As you do various things you can earn Atoms. Which are used for cosmetics in game. Things you wear, and emotes. I later remembered I could set my nVidia setting to not stretch the 2560x1440. It would leave black bars on the side. The graphics engine seems updated, and looks nicer than I remember Fallout 4 looking. The selfie photo mode looks fun. I did spend an extra long time tinkering with how my character looked visually at the character selection screen. I did read of some person Roleplaying Preston and warning players about various settlements. I still need to play it more.

  5. Hi, I just found this on FB today. I don't see this on their YT channel. I assume it will become available later on YT. For now, it's on FB.
  6. I started back up after a long hiatus from the game. Setting up the UI to my liking took some time. Initially, the UI was a little too small for my eyes on my large 3440x1440 monitor. Things looked great. But the buttons, text, etc, was too small. This weekend I re-learned that you can scale the UI to make it larger. It's under ESC/Settings/Advanced ( I think that's where it is, I'm at work trying to remember ). There are several other settings I had to experiment with the UI to get it to my liking. Starting with a brand new level 1 character helped a lot with making things easier and not too overwhelming. The game seems to make things pretty easy when first starting out. I think my first character death occurred when I was in the high teens or low 20's a few days ago. I first picked a warrior to play when I started back up. Did a few levels. Then started a Priest. For that sounded funner for my to play. Also, I was thinking ahead with what I'd enjoy playing in a group. I mostly play support (healer) in Overwatch. So it seemed like playing a helaer (Priest) in WoW would be fun for me too. And it is! I have a 110 character boost from buying BFA. But I'm holding off on using that for the time being. Since I'm enjoying playing with my new low level characters. Feel free to message me in game, or out, if you have any questions.
  7. Hi, I picked up BFA and resubbed earlier this week. I'm enjoying starting with a new level 1 toon and relearning the game. I have a level 8 warrior and level 15 priest. Both are dwarves. And this is the first time I've played in the beginning Dwarf zones. So that all seems new and fresh to me. I have a level 110 boost with the BFA purchase. When should I use the level 110 boost?
  8. Hi, I found this video on the history of WOW. It's told by some of the developers. Covering Launch to the newest expansion (BOA).

    Fallout 76

    Looks neat. PC Gamer had this article yesterday, on it. https://www.pcgamer.com/fallout-76-is-a-multiplayer-softcore-survival-game-about-building-settlements/?utm_content=buffer1774c&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=buffer_pcgamerfb
  10. I played the PS4 version for a few week. It's fun. The beginning part seems very casual. It took about a week to get to level 20, and finish the main campaign missions. That wasn't too hard. When you complete the main campaign, other parts of the game open up. Your Power Level (AKA Light Level) is like a secondary leveling system. It's a measure of your equipped weapons and armor. I think the current max is 305. With a theoretical max of 350. Certain missions have Power Level requirements. I got to around 270. Most of the time was either solo doing Public events, or in PUGs for Strikes and other missions. For me to go higher, it seems I'll need to group with friends and coordinate how we play; weapons, classes, for better efficiency with completing things. Me and a buddy did try to do some Nightfall Strieks - but we keep running out of time, so the mission ends. Those are for up to 3 people. Here's a guide talking more about Power Level. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-10-31-destiny-2-power-level-265-305-300-level-cap-4747 The game is a lot more fun playing with friends. The game seems primarily designed for co-op. Though you can do PVP in specific 4 vs 4 matches. Those can be fun too. And you can level up 1-20, doing those. I'm not sure if I'll get it for the PC or not.
  11. This could be a fun game. I played D1 on the PS4 for a little bit. And it will be using Battle Net. http://https://www.polygon.com/2017/5/18/15657886/destiny-2-blizzard-battle-net-pc-exclusive
  12. Happy Birthday Voltari!

  13. I got a new PC from http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/ 2 years ago in Oct/Nov. I've been very happy with my purchase. I'm likely to use them again. Or maybe order the parts and build my own. For RAM I ended up getting 32GB. But I went with the cheapest RAM they sold for that. I think that was ADATA brand. I didn't see it worthwhile to buy faster RAM. I'm also a visual artist and use Adobe's Creative Cloud apps. Primarily Premiere and Photoshop. Though this is still a gaming machine for me. It has been so unbelievably nice to run multiple games, apps, and switch between them. But is it overkill? Well ... maybe. But, I find that really helps with my creative process. And it sure makes using that computer a fun experience. Perhaps you should check out the price differences between 16/24/32 GB. And see if there is a way to figure out how much RAM you really need to do what you want to do, versus what you want. And that can help save you some $.
