I signed up for the Paladins Console Beta at https://www.paladins.com/ps4-beta-signup/ a little while ago. Being a fan of the game on PC (I run it on Linux under Wine) and already being familiar with Hi-Rez Studios' PS4 port of their exciting action MOBA, Smite, this was a no-brainer. Didn't expect to get an invite any time soon as I'm not a pro-tier player and rarely play in the competitive queue. However, I did get my invite…to the closed Alpha test.

Hi-Rez seems committed to making games that fans like to play. They also like to encourage people to play with friends. Smite often has weekends where there are bonuses for being in a party and Paladins has a permanent... Read All


Conan visits the YouTube Space in New York City and is presented with some of the most high-tech, cutting edge virtual reality technology in the world, but he mostly wants to know about porn.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is a movie based on FFXV (obviously), which has been released before the game. I was finally able to rent it on Amazon Prime Video, so I decided to watch it. This move is pretty much the beginning of the FFXV story. It shows how the world is pretty much divided into two major nations, the Kingdom of Lucis and the Niflheim Empire. It seems clear as to which side is “good” and which is “bad,” but that could be because we’re seeing the action from the perspective of one side. While the two are at war, one seems to be more peaceful while the other seems to wish to dominate all lands in the FFXV world.

The Kingdom of Lucis has magical... Read All


I'm not really sure how many other gamers view games being brought into movies. I think there may reasonably be some anxiety with that, however I think we already have some examples of this being done right and wrong. Personally, I think Warcraft is perhaps one of the few games where the movie does it right. I enjoyed it and from little I've heard and read about it, it seems to be pretty popular.

One of the things I liked about it was additions of things I remember more from playing a bit of Hearthstone. That's probably because while I've played the first two Warcraft games many, many years ago, I have yet to play the third. I have also never played World of Warcraft,... Read All


Jack has never built a PC.

Rich has built a PC.

Rich has the fantastic idea of hooking up a heart rate monitor to Jack as Jack build's his first PC.


This was actually a lot more enjoyable to watch than I thought it would be! I did watch all 4 hours and 49 mins of it (over the course of 2 days). There is a lot of good banter between Jack and Rich, and the twitch viewers were both helpful and entertaining in their hazing of Jack.

Enjoy!

Welcome, explorers!

There are some pretty incredible sights to see in No Man's Sky, and we want to see! Use this thread as a place to share links to screenshots of your own personal journey through the universe. Please keep this spoiler free! Some of the story elements are pretty amazing to look at, but we want to see those other discoveries more unique to you and your travels. We want to see what star systems you're traveling to, and what worlds you're visiting. What creatures are you coming across? What kinds of ships or tools are you discovering? At minimum, a simple description with a link is all that's needed, but feel free to expound and tell the story of what... Read All
