With all of the products on the market to do what any aspiring gamer wants to do, especially the ones that are looking for gamer stardom, or even just to be able to share their ability to “PWN SO HARD!” One of the arguably most important part of any computer build would be a graphics card. Many people choose NVIDIA or ATI based cards based on brand loyalty and the few differences between the cards.
Personally, I have an NVIDIA based card, and so does Grethade. Other people I know run ATI cards and love them, but for me, bang for the buck is where I am at and the NVIDIA 550ti with overclocking makes a great addition to my tower.
But what do you do when you need more? Right now I am looking for an answer to the burning quest for 3 monitors! Currently my three options are:
- Get a matching and identical NVIDIA card for an SLI setup to use NVIDIA Surround
- Do I ditch my current card in favor of a new edition to the NVIDIA family that supports NVIDIA Surround on a single card
- Leave NVIDIA, my familiar brand for new and uncharted waters of ATI in favor of their on board support for their EyeFinity support?
Right now I’m at a toss up, either way I’m going to spend over$100. What would you do? Let me know in the comments below!
Now I’m not one to brag, but my COD (Call of Duty) skills are on par, in my opinion, with some of the better people that I know. That isn’t to say that I haven’t been made to look like a rampaging newb, or haven’t fragged myself on accident. Everyone makes mistakes.
But, when you want to take it to the next level and start recording yourself and sharing your success and failures with the rest of the intrawebs, what devices do you turn to when you need to broadcast your console stardom?
Currently, I’m leaning towards purchasing a BlackMagic device, possibly an internal computer card, or maybe one of these beautiful looking boxes that you see in front of you.
It’s a little expensive at around $200, but there is always a price to pay when it comes to humiliation.
If you share your console gaming with the world, what do you use? Again, as always, leave your thoughts in the comments below.
-The Angry Asian
Soooo, if any of you remember an earlier article posting about the Paragon System which launched with the last patch, someone actually hit that cap…
For those of you that don’t know how much extra XP (experience points) you need to hit that level, let me break it down for you.
To get to the original level cap of level 60, which much of us have already reached, it would take 23 million XP
To pass the next 100 levels of the Paragon System you will need over 3 billion XP
For a visual reference:
Level 60 : 23,000,000 XP
Level 60 + 100 Levels of Paragon : 3,000,000,000 + XP
THAT’S A TON OF TIME WASTED.
When Diablo III first came out, people spent TONS of time playing this, to the point where a french company offered to send free vibrators to people if they sent a picture of them and their significant other playing the game.
Don’t believe me? Here is the link
Lastly, for your viewing pleasure, here is the list of his current gear.
From what I’ve heard, they used a different set of gear for leveling.
Currently I am working on rebuilding my computer so I can play Starcraft 2 but in the meantime my coworker got me hooked on a game called Slotomania, simple game of slots. What’s intriguing about this game is the fact you can level up, unlock additional games, each game has it’s own unique bonus round and you can interact with friends. One of the nice things about the game is that it syncs up your game with your facebook, IOS (if you have an iphone) or Android phone. This makes it easier to play on the go.
To encourage to play more every four hours you get a bonus, which depends on your level. After collecting 4 bonus you can spin for a mega bonus, which is a lot more money. If your friends get 5 in a row or reach bonus round they can post to their Facebook page and you can click on it to receive between 200 and 500 dollars towards your game. If you get scatter you can not only get free spins but you can share them with friends too.
My First Impressions Video
A Few Weeks Later
What I have discovered worked for me is to change your bets. Bet low for awhile then bet high then low again. Usually that helped keep me ahead of my friends and level faster. It’s all probability in the game but the graphics are really nice. Final opinion is that the game on facebook works a lot better than on my android phone. Bonus games run much smoother and same with just the slots in general.
Yesterday at Gamescon, EA games announced that Command and Conquer will become the first Free to Play game utilizing Frostbite 2. The sign up for the beta is up and running and you can register at www.commandandconquer.com/free . There are limited spots so sign up as soon as you can.
Frostbite 2 has been heavily mentioned recently in the new games coming out. It takes full advantage of the Direct X API and 64-bit processor in order to provide enhanced graphics and creates refined physics compared to it’s predecessors.
So, Blizzard finally admits that they have been hacked! I’m sure that many of you knew about previous issues that occurred during the RMA (Real Money Action House) preparations, where peoples’ accounts were hacked.
I, myself, even fell victim to hacking.
Now, even after all of the statements that Blizzard has made about being unhackable, and all of the extra measures that they’ve taken with “authenticators” and other devices, Blizzard was still hacked.
It would have been nice to see an email from Blizzard hit my inbox to alert me of this issue that was going on, but instead I had to find out about this from Kotaku, PC Gamer, Gizmodo, and generally every other website in the whole world, except Blizzard itself.
Here is the full release below take from their webpage here.
Important Security Update
Players and Friends,
Even when you are in the business of fun, not every week ends up being fun. This week, our security team found an unauthorized and illegal access into our internal network here at Blizzard. We quickly took steps to close off this access and began working with law enforcement and security experts to investigate what happened.
At this time, we’ve found no evidence that financial information such as credit cards, billing addresses, or real names were compromised. Our investigation is ongoing, but so far nothing suggests that these pieces of information have been accessed.
Some data was illegally accessed, including a list of email addresses for global Battle.net users, outside of China. For players on North American servers (which generally includes players from North America, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia) the answer to the personal security question, and information relating to Mobile and Dial-In Authenticators were also accessed. Based on what we currently know, this information alone is NOT enough for anyone to gain access to Battle.net accounts.
We also know that cryptographically scrambled versions of Battle.net passwords (not actual passwords) for players on North American servers were taken. We use Secure Remote Password protocol (SRP) to protect these passwords, which is designed to make it extremely difficult to extract the actual password, and also means that each password would have to be deciphered individually. As a precaution, however, we recommend that players on North American servers change their password. Please click this link to change your password. Moreover, if you have used the same or similar passwords for other purposes, you may want to consider changing those passwords as well.
In the coming days, we’ll be prompting players on North American servers to change their secret questions and answers through an automated process. Additionally, we’ll prompt mobile authenticator users to update their authenticator software. As a reminder, phishing emails will ask you for password or login information. Blizzard Entertainment emails will never ask for your password. We deeply regret the inconvenience to all of you and understand you may have questions. Please find additional information here.
We take the security of your personal information very seriously, and we are truly sorry that this has happened.
Ok, so again, I find myself the last person in the world to know something about a game called, “Slender”
From what I’ve gathered, it is loosely based on the actual fictional or non-fictional character known simply as “Slender Man” depending on what side of the crazy tracks you fall on.
Personally, I’m to much of a baby to actually play this game, especially after watching a few reaction/play through videos, and in all reality any game that is supposed to scare me shitless really isn’t my cup of tea.
On another note, if a game like F.E.A.R. scares the crap out of me and even watching movies like: “The Ring”, “Drag Me To Hell”, and “The Grudge” make me sleep with the lights on, reach for my blankie and pray that I can get someone to come over and sleep next to me so that I don’t die alone, would you really think I would even try to play this game for you guys?
But, for those that want to continue on to the scary stuff and see how you fair at this then here are the links!
A little bit of history to frassle your brain before you play
Some words of advise from someone, on how to make the game a little less scary before you play
Your last chance to opt out of this as you can watch people that have played the game
Andf if you really must play the game, here is the link to download it.
Do I Really Want To Download This ?
So, if someone really does download and play this, why don’t you send me some comments on the game or leave them below.
