  1. Games and Gaming News

    I've seen videos fro this game before, it looks like they've been steadily making improvements. Very impressive coming from an indie dev team.
  2. Overwatch

    They're adding a bunch of new content to the base lootbox pool with next Tuesday's update. They'll also be releasing Blizzardworld as a new map. https://playoverwatch.com/en-us/blog/21353116 I need to buy this:
  3. http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=12986 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6660498/ I want to be completely clear, this is a very unique show that I feel deserves some recognition. It is also completely batshit insane. ULTRAVIOLENT HYPERSEXUALIZED WEIRDNESS. The show is wild and weird and certainly not for everyone. The animation style is much more "loose" and not as clean as more modern anime, but it still works well. The storyline is mostly garbage and there are plenty of silly anime tropes, but the music is fantastic. Honestly I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless you want to watch some weird and fucked up anime. I'm glad Netflix is around and is willing to push anime like this because this entire show would not have worked on traditional broadcast and I hope it spurs a slightly more "adult" set of anime that isn't afraid of censorship or being goddamn weird.
  4. Trailers

    Wow, they're busting out a bunch of tropes from the recent video games, with the climbing spike and bow as a weapon. It looks about as cheesy at the anjelina jolie version but I'm still moderately curious about it.
  5. League of Legends

    They're doing a champion update for Swain and it looks like they're changing a fair bit. They said they wanted to make him more "tactician" based. Sidenote, the new season officially started. There's some really dumb shit going on abusing lifesteal and "overshield" here's a little video about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuPGkPIboFs I've been trying it out, and it's definitely silly. Riot already mentioned they have plans to nerf it soon, so I better make the most of abusing it now before ADC gets put into the dumpster again.
  6. [TV] Star Trek: Discovery

    The production value is high, most of the acting is fairly good, but the overall plot is very boring. I am giving them as much runway as I can, because every single star trek series tends to get better over time, except enterprise that show was utter shite. Considering I'm also watching through Deep Space 9 right now, it's obvious how much better seasons 4+ are compared to the first season or two. I hope that Discovery hits it's stride a bit sooner, especially since they have the advantage of creating a less self contained / episodic show.
  7. Cell Phones & Service

    They're an MVNO on T-Mobile/Sprint/etc. So this follows what most wireless carriers have done over the past year. T-Mobile in particular provides unlimited data but then throttles (they call prioritization or something) after a certain limit. I think this is a reasonable move. It's not full on unlimited service, but it's about as close as they can get. I still use nearly zero mobile data and this makes project fi the best option for my current needs. But with this move it actually makes them a more competitive option for single individuals that have higher data usage.
  8. Monitor Discussion

    So I guess Acer put out an update to the X34, matching the performance of the Dell 34" AW3418DW. https://www.techspot.com/review/1560-acer-predator-x34p-monitor/ The update bumps the stock refresh rate to 100hz and gives 120hz as an overclockable option. They also made the curve more aggressive moving from 3800R to 1900R. If all this sounds like they just took the panel Dell was using and put it in their updated chasis, well I'm no expert but that's basically what it looks like they did. I'm not trying to crap on acer (I own an acer monitor) but unless this thing is a fair bit cheaper than the Dell (doubtful) I would opt for the Dell - especially taking into account their better customer service and warranty.
  9. Keyboards & Mice

    I'm more concerned that they moved away from their square/plus style stem to a cylinder. I imagine that they will have a slightly different feel. The tolerances are supposed to be pretty tight because they mention that the keys are "water resistant" or at least more water resistant than their traditional switches. I assume that cherry is trying to get these small enough to be an option for high end laptops. I also have a feeling that corsair will end up selling a keyboard with these switches soon enough - they seem to have a tight relationship with Cherry. On an unrelated note: I might consider replacing my keyboard I use at work. I currently have a Corsair K30 and I'm debating going full asshole mode and getting a mechanical keyboard for work. If I really wanted to be an absolute monster I could even go for blue switches.
  10. Games and Gaming News

    This is not a new game, and I remember seeing some news about it a while back. This video is half review half reminder that I should probably buy it when it goes on sale.

    New slim cherry switches coming soon™ https://www.anandtech.com/show/12296/cherry-introduces-new-low-profile-switches-at-ces-2018
