Casual Citizen EP28 - Star Citizen Alien Races: Banu Protectorate
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 5:54 pm
This week we're taking a closer look at the Star Citizen alien race I'm most excited to see in the game, the Banu. I like the idea of their unorthodox societal structure and the fact that they're welcoming to all races. I'll to put my thoughts about their participation in the slave market aside. In many cases, it's being referred to as indentured servants. We'll have to see just how far down the rabbit whole their practice goes. For now, their lore and star systems sound exciting and hospitable to humans.

Dawn of War III WAAAGH!s are the best WAAAGHs!
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 12:00 pm
It’s still early days for me in Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War 3 [official site] , and, truth be told, I’m still not entirely sure what to make of it.

Changes To PLEX Packages Coming With May Release
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 1:20 pm

With the May release, we’ll be making a few changes to PLEX to give capsuleers more control over PLEX and ISK during gameplay.

By breaking PLEX into smaller units, pilots will be able to trade smaller, or more variable amounts of PLEX to take full advantage of the market in New Eden. In addition to this, all pilots will now have direct access to the New Eden Store without having to jump through currency conversion hoops should they want to use PLEX to purchase SKINs and apparel. Full details of the changes to PLEX are available in the following Dev Blogs.

PLEX Changes On The Way

PLEX Rework – Follow Up

When these changes arrive on May 9th with the 119.5 release, we will also be changing the pricing structure of PLEX, so that they work like aurum used to: The more you buy, the bigger the bonus you get.

For some packs, this will mean a small increase in the price per PLEX, but the majority of PLEX packs have been converted to offer bigger bonuses.

At the same time, we are aware that the entry point price for PLEX is high with the existing system, so with the new PLEX system launching on May 9th, a couple of smaller packs will be introduced so that pilots who would like to spend a little less can access the benefits of PLEX for less.

The image below shows how the new PLEX pricing system will look after the deployment of 119.5 on May 9th.

Xbox chief envisions a Netflix model for narrative games
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2017, 11:24 am

Microsoft has just tipped its hand for what the company will show off at E3 in June. In a wide-ranging interview with The Guardian, Xbox chief Phil Spencer laid out his plans for the future of Xbox software. Since (mostly) fixing a majority of the problems the Xbox One hardware and system software has suffered through since 2013 with the Xbox One S and the Creator's Update for Xbox firmware, Spencer is focusing on the other problem Microsoft faces: its dearth of unique and compelling reasons to buy into the improved Xbox platform.
