Is anybody planning on picking up destiny 2 for the pc next month? I may pick it up if CG is going to spin up a team.

Today at 12pm pacific, IGN and the Video Game History Foundation are teaming up for a 5 hour stream of them playing "a slew of rare things, including canceled games, unreleased consoles, forgotten preview builds, and much more." This is also a fundraising event for VGHF which looks like it perserves old games and consoles. I don't know much about the charity, but the event seems pretty cool. I will be checking it out.

In the hopes of making my workstation more efficient, I've been experimenting with different application launchers. When I was on the Mac, I was using a program called DragThing, and I loved it. Now that I'm on Windows, I've found a couple that work well enough, but nothing that I really loved. Then I stumbled on Launchy, which is similar to Spotlight on the Mac: A pop-up search field that lets you search for and launch the application your looking for, without the need for mouse clicking. I never gave this option much thought, until I started using it. Now I find it highly useful, to the point that I can't imagine having never used it.

As great as this is, now I'm... Read All

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

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
