Motorsport Manager [official site] is about people as well as their cars.

Times, they are a-changin’ in World of Warcraft. As the game sits on the cusp of launching Legion, Blizzard has given the cyber demons permission to ramp up their attacks across Azeroth.

The highs and lows of Gamescom 2016
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 August 2016, 10:00 am

Gamescom is over. The publishers have packed away their booths, and the lingering smell of sweaty, Kölsch-fueled gamers (and sweaty, coffee-fueled journalists) has finally started to dissipate. In the closing hours of our trip to Cologne, Germany, the "team" (Nick Summers and I) sat down to chat about our time at the video game show.

Talking points include the lack of press conferences this year; the myriad ways I made a fool of myself in VR; Outreach's fresh take on space exploration; Sea of Thieves actually looking pretty good; Metal Gear Survive really not looking good and Titanfall 2's new focus on plot. That's a wrap on our Gamescom coverage this year -- if you missed any of our stories, you can find them all here.




D&D Player's Handbook Thoughts
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 August 2016, 10:00 am

I wouldn't really call this a book review, but it kind of is?  I finally got around to reading the Dungeons and Dragons Player's Handbook!

I've only played three sessions of D&D in my life but I watch some YouTube series and listen to some podcast series that are basically ongoing D&D campaigns.  I've been doing this for years now.  I thought it was finally time to actually pick up a copy of the D&D books for myself and sit down to read them.

I actually loved reading the Player's Handbook and I basically read it cover to cover.  I didn't read every single stat of every single spell, but that was the only exception.  I found some clarifications to the rules that helped me understand the game better than what I've picked up over the years.  But, best of all, I got to read all about the races and classes in the world of D&D.

The world building contained in the race and class descriptions along was just amazing.  I especially loved the prompts with questions about how you want to play the class/race.  There were so many great jumping off points that you can take and run with to make a unique character.  Not to mention the examples they give.  It's amazing how different one player can be from another even if they have the same race/class combo.

Although I don't have a group to play with at the moment I'm still very happy I took the time to read the Player's Handbook.  Maybe I'll be able to find a tabletop group eventually, but I think it more likely that I'll be able to DM for my kids some day soon.  So, this one is going on the shelf for now but I'm super excited to pull it back down and put it to good use once my kids get just a little bit older.

The Daily Grind: What obstacles keep you from trying different MMOs?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 August 2016, 8:00 am
While it is probably no big surprise, I’ve come to realize that even as I love MMOs and want to play them all, I have some sort of mental block when it comes to trying out new ones. It’s always way, way easier to return to old favorites than take the time to pick up a new game, learn its [...]

Guild Wars 2 suffers technical difficulties, pushes out gifts following rollback
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 August 2016, 9:00 am
If you’re logging into Guild Wars 2 today, expect a bit of weirdness. Yesterday’s patch caused a soulbinding glitch that took the servers offline and damaged character records in the game’s database, necessitating significant downtime yesterday and a rollback to yesterday morning, meaning if you played after the patch rolled in, you lost over two hours of playtime. Late last [...]
