October 18, 2018 by Xelnath Leave a Comment Disclaimer: I generally refrain from blogging about current content, for several reasons: I am not an active WoW player Blizzard is already inundated with massive numbers of opinions I used to have insider information which meant that talking about modern wow content risked accidental spoilers – not fair to anyone, even if its an accident I really didn’t want to – I’ve spent 10 years of my life on WoW as both player and developer. When is it enough? Out of respect for the developers, I want to give them the chance to fix their issues My audience generally wanted nostalgia stories, not hot-takes on the latest raid So why am I breaking that rule this time? Several very impassioned friends reached out to me trying to understand the issues Copy and pasting DMs when multiple people have the same question is well.. Looked at the problem and it seemed kind of easy to solve, albeit a fair bit of work This might be good … [Read more...] about What’s Wrong With Azerite?
Having multiple bank accounts with different banks
Tucked away on the second floor of Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History is the Regenstein Pacific Laboratory. The 1,600 square foot facility, secreted within a massive collection of Pacific Coast artifacts, is open to the rest of the museum thanks to a bank of viewing windows. That’s where several teenaged members of the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, fresh off their morning performance in the museum’s main hall, stood with their noses pressed against the window. Inside, Field Museum staff member JP Brown, an avid player of video games, was taking a stroll through Assassin’s Creed Origins on a big screen television. Outside the kids were absolutely loving it. But Brown wasn’t there to rack up his kill count or hunt collectibles in-game. I’d invited him to join me for a closer look at Origins’ Discovery Tour mode, available for free to owners of that game on PC and consoles. With it players can take in the sights of ancient Egypt … [Read more...] about Playing Assassin’s Creed Origins with the experts at Chicago’s Field Museum

YouTubers Joe Weller and KSI, who rose to prominence as part of a YouTube gaming group, will step into the boxing ring on Saturday and go head-to-head after months of feuding. The rivalry between Weller and KSI dates back to their days with a group called the Sidemen, a team of seven British YouTubers with a focus on video games, including FIFA, Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty, who also happened to be longtime friends. KSI was one of the group’s founding members in 2013. As the Sidemen became more popular, each developed their own individual YouTube account, and KSI grew to be one of the most famous members of the group. In August 2017, KSI announced he was moving on from the group. KSI’s decision to leave the group on reportedly unfriendly terms (he blamed internal drama with one Sidemen member as a reason) kickstarted his months-long feud with Weller. Although Weller was never officially a part of Sidemen, but rather described as a friend of the group, he and KSI … [Read more...] about YouTubers, FIFA gamers set for momentous boxing match to settle months of drama
Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s filling the British countryside with railroads and smoke in train tycoon sim, Mashinky. Disaster! I’d barely begun my first foray into Mashinky’s magical world of locomotives when my very first attempt to manage a whopping two whole trains — carriages and all — ended in calamity and death. And also fire. My brand new steam engine had just left the depot near Leicester and was beginning its journey to Kirkcaldy when it rather unexpectedly collided with the only other train in the world. All that was left was a smoking, smouldering wreck. That’s what signals are for, I realised too late. Mashinky’s brief tutorial ends after you set up your first passenger line, before the need for signals even arises, so I was a wee bit unprepared for catastrophe. Signals have haunted me ever since. They’re everywhere. Crossings and junctions and … [Read more...] about Premature Evaluation: Mashinky
