  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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

    Destiny 2 Guild Interest

    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.

    Destiny 2

    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
  7. Happy Birthday Voltari!

  8. 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 $.

    Taking the plunge

    Doing the free starter edition is a great way to test it out. Though there are some additional restrictions to playing that are a little annoying. Especially the restrictions on communication. Though you can get around that using Mumble. But still check it out. https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/world-of-warcraft-starter-edition

    Doom - Whats Wrong

    I'm liking the single player campaign. I played through the first part, E1M1?, in like 30-60 minutes on Ultra Violence. The movement is fast paced like earlier Dooms. Sprint is always on, you hold shift to not sprint. Graphics are very pretty. It was challenging. I'd die if I wasn't careful. You can get extra health by doing glory kills on enemies. To get a glory kill, the enemy has to be damaged and giving off a brief shimmer. Then you can move in and kill it hand to hand and get some health. You can also jump/climb on things. Sort of like a very simple version of parkoring in Dying Light.
