SWTOR bug drives enemy boss to commit suicide
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 12:00 pm
Any MMO dungeon boss knows that it is only a matter of time before he, she, or it will be slaughtered by a pack of well-geared, highly trained adventurers. As inevitable as this may be, there is one NPC in Star Wars: The Old Republic who has decided to take matters in his own hands and commit suicide before suffering [...]

World of Warcraft scrambles to fix post-7.1.5 class balance
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:00 am
World of Warcraft's most recent content update isn't a week old yet, but it's already dug itself into a pit of controversy. You see, Patch 7.1.5 contained significant balance tweaks for many classes, but instead of making things better across the board, it actually knocked some classes to the bottom of the heap (in particular, every Hunters spec) and created [...]

Funcom stresses the importance of lore and mystery in Conan Exiles
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 11:00 am
Conan lore is probably the most contentious thing about the franchise, and Funcom today has clarified the focus of that lore in Conan Exiles when it hits early access later this month. The game is set specifically between Xuthal of the Dusk (The Slithering Shadow) and A Witch Shall be Born, a pair of stories written in 1933 and 1934. You're not [...]

NVIDIA's original Shield TV gets the new model's smarts
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:43 am

Nvidia unveiled a new Shield TV box at CES, but the list of upgrades was pretty slim. It has a funky new controller, with a mesh of triangles peppering the grips, but otherwise it's the same hardware with some extra software bells and whistles. If you have the older model, good news -- today, you're getting all those non-hardware additions too. They include a new foundation -- Android 7.0 Nougat -- and a bunch of new apps including Amazon Video, Twitter, the NFL, Comedy Central and Vimeo.

Magnificent 7 (2016) Review
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:00 am

This the the movie that finally solidified the fact that I just don't like Westerns.  I've always been ambivalent with Westerns but Magnificent 7 had enough actors that I like that it convinced me to give it a shot.

It is a very mediocre movie.  It's completely predictable.  The pacing is sooooo slow.  I think it's a stereotypical Western but made in 2016 instead of the golden age of Westerns.  It just completely and utterly failed to click with me.

I even held out for the end hoping something would redeem it.  Maybe the fight scenes would get better.  Maybe there would be a cool twist.  Maybe a character would actually have character development!  No on all counts.

At least now I've learned that while I don't mind a Western setting (see my love of Westworld) I do hate the genre of Westerns.  The genre styles and conventions just aren't for me.


TUG works on producing a 'minimally viable product'
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 9:00 am
Emerging from months of relative silence, Nerd Kingdom penned a short Kickstarter update about what's happening with the social sandbox world of TUG. It sounds like progress is still going slowly and that fans shouldn't expect to see anything big soon. However, there should be more communication going forward. "Into the coming months, we will be focusing on what is [...]

Nintendo's Switch doesn't come with a charging Joy-Con grip
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 9:00 am

If you're dead-set on owning a Nintendo Switch, you should probably start thinking about your charging setup. In addition to the main unit, you'll need to keep the detachable "Joy-Con" controllers topped up, which could prove tricky if you're playing the console exclusively at home. That's because the Joy-Con Grip bundled with the Switch (shown above) doesn't have any charging capabilities of its own. As Eurogamer reports, it's basically just a plastic shell designed to keep the two Joy-Cons in place.

The Daily Grind: Will you give The Repopulation another chance?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 8:00 am
The after-hours Friday revelation that The Repopulation is relaunching early this year took a lot of our readers by surprise. The much-wanted sandbox MMORPG had been offline for over a year, and though updates had been scarce, we'd been told Above & Beyond was using Fragmented's profits to re-home Repop in its new engine, so there was grumbling at the lack [...]

Lost In EVE
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 January 2017, 6:30 pm
Back in the mists of time, when I first joined Z3R0 Return Mining Inc., the corp was primarily a PvE corp. To a certain extent we had teeth we would bare at times, but our primary activities revolved around running sites, sucking gas, or building things.

PBS' new kids' channel lets you flip between streams and games
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 January 2017, 6:25 pm

When you give kids digital educational content, you're frequently forced to choose between passive viewing and games. Why can't you offer both? PBS wants to give it a try. It just launched a free 24/7 national channel, PBS Kids, where a live internet stream is just the start of the strategy. At a later point in the year, you'll have the option of switching between the stream and an activity that builds on what the show offers. Your young one will have an easy way of putting what they've learned into practice.

Final Fantasy XIV details its GARO crossover event
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 January 2017, 6:00 pm
It should be evident by now that Final Fantasy XIV is more than willing to have crossovers that not everyone will love. If the Yo-kai Watch crossover wasn't to your taste, that's fine; perhaps you'll prefer the new crossover with the Japanese show GARO. Or perhaps you won't care much for the crossover, but you will care for picking up [...]

Cops-and-robbers sandbox Identity on griefing, prison, customization, and more
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 January 2017, 2:00 pm
Identity is an open-world, cops-and-robbers sandbox, and it isn't asking you for money. That's because it was already Kickstarted to the tune of almost $150,000 back in 2015. It's a real-world MMORPG with a focus on roleplay, economy, and yes, the dark side of human nature. Developer Asylum Entertainment sat for an AMA on Reddit Friday -- here are a few [...]

Ben Heck's Xbox One S laptop
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 January 2017, 12:30 pm

Since the teardown of the Xbox One S, Ben has been designing a laptop using the console's innards. Building a hardware enclosure can be tricky, as Ben has to make sure the specifications are exact. He gets precise measurements with the help of a document scanner, later bringing in a laser cutter and CNC router. Naturally, though, it's not just the aesthetics that are important: Ben also has to reduce the size of the hardware and ensure it's cooled properly. To do so, Ben finds an appropriate fan that can be speed-controlled to ensure the laptop stays cool. What would you change about the Xbox One S notebook? Let the Ben Heck Show team know over on the element14 Community.
