Hey guys and girls, long time no speak :)
How are we all doing?
I've recently started playing Neverwinter, and I'm really enjoying it. Anyone else play?
I'm laughing so hard now I can barely see the screen due to tears. ^_^
As Gormash knows from my Facebook update the other day, I was pissing myself laughing at a YouTube video of someone playing – or trying to play – ‘Kerbal Space Program’. https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/ .I’ll attach the video down below, but in case you haven’t seen this game on Steam (where there is also a free demo), you essentially have to create space ships / planes by assembling parts in a hangar on Planet Kerbal, and then blast them into space along with your crew.
Awhile back I started working on jump maps in TF2. They are non-combat maps where the only objective is to reach a location that requires you to either rocket, sticky, or sentry jump. I've been mostly focusing on soldier jumps, htough I'll switch out to demoman on new maps just to explore a bit easier.
This is ridiculously impressive. The guy is doing a double skip with an airshot of a speed jumping demoman. 'Skipping' is when you do a rocket jump before you hit the ground. It propels you forward very quickly. While most competitive soldier (and even I) can do that, the kill is done at full speed DIRECTLY after a reload and nearly straight up on a demo going near full speed.
While I realize all good/cool (even bad) things come to an end - I find it kind of, erm, odd? Peculiar? That this series, which seems to have been on an upswing of fans over the past decade even, would come to an end.
Or, maybe, I've just had too many beers and thought this over too much.
It seems that my favorite computer parts store, Newegg has moved their distribution center from New Jersey to Mississippi. I've ordered a lot of parts from them over the years. Almost every component in any computer I have built has been from Newegg.
It appears that DDO is implementing a 'one-way' RMAH. As in: you purchase in game currency with money which can be used on the AH, but you can't get the money back out.
Or something like that. I read about it while perusing LotRO forums... they fear this will hit LotRO as well.
