BOLO: New Content Tomorrow (...hopefully)

Hey all!

There's some fun stuff happening this weekend, and I'm hoping to get in on some of it. If all goes according to plan, some of it should get up on Twitch and YouTube.

1) Neverwinter is having a Double XP weekend. Darude has made some progress, so I'm hoping to get an update from him.

2) AirMech Arena has come to XB1, and you know what that means...a new Going In Dry! I'm hoping to rope some of my other MOBA playing friends in for some craziness.

3) Destiny got a big update ahead of Tuesday's release of House of Wolves. I haven't played in a while, but I might jump on for a bit. This will probably just be a straight up stream, but I may weasel it into Going In Dry, too.

Keep an eye on my Twitch (http://www.twitch.tv/macdoogal) and my YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcKwTcy_bT-FOCj9xfxtASg) and you may see some fun stuff tomorrow.

Gnome, out.

I'm Still Here!

Sorry, all. I've been slacking off.

But, I do have a new post in the works. Hope to have it up on the next week. Stay tuned! I may even post some more videos to YouTube, soon. Maybe.

Gnome, out.

Take a break. You deserve it.

Sorry, folks. Nothing really to report this week aside from (finally) hitting 70 on Diablo 3 UEE for XB1. I will expect angry mobs at my door with torches and pitchforks...

For now, I entice you with the recent reveal of Jared Leto as Joker for the upcoming Suicide Squad film.

I don't hate it. Come at me (in the comments), bro.

Technical Difficulties We'll Be Right Back

So, there was no post last week. It made me sad, but there was a reason no update happened.

Meet Darude, my halfling cleric on Neverwinter.
Gonna have a sandstorm up in this bitch.
After my last post, I got invited to the Orcs Must Die! Uncharted phase two beta. I was excited to do a Going in Dry video for it, but my streaming software and/or PC crapped the bed. I got most of the one match I was able to play recorded, but there was a lot of lag and I completely lagged out at the end. There might be something salvageable, though. I also wanted to record more last weekend, but plans changed and I wasn't able to carve out time for playing. I'm going to try really hard to put some time in this weekend. There are triple skulls this weekend, so...INCENTIVE!

I also was able to gather a number of friends, many of whom were new to MOBAs, and played Infinite Crisis in its first weekend. This was also intended to be a Going in Dry segment...but my stream consisted entirely of a single loading screen. Super fun times! Not exactly sure what's going to happen there.

Then........Neverwinter released on Xbox One and I played a good amount of that. I streamed a lot of it, and there will probably be more. So, stay tuned!

Stay classy, San Diego.

Pseudo-Preview: Smite Xbox One Alpha

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, a lot of MOBAs are trying to work their ways to consoles. On the forefront of this movement is the relative PC veteran Smite. The Alpha is in full swing, and I've had an opportunity to play several matches. My initial reactions after the break!!

Thanks For The Memories Part 1: God of War

The ultimate in revenge stories -- and a brutal saga to boot -- is God of War. PlayStation’s most iconic hack and slash series has helped define the genre and most importantly, as of me typing this, has just reached its 10th anniversary. Yes, back in 2005, Santa Monica Studios gave us the first glimpse at Kratos, his unbelievable fall from grace, and quest to avenge his family. I pretty much ignored this franchise for the better part of 6 years before I bought a PS3 and played the entire collection within a week’s time. Though originally planned as a trilogy, the series got PSP titles and a prequel to stuff all the gaps closed throughout the years. But, the third numbered entry is, and will ever be, the end. At the time of release the game had review scores anywhere from 8.5/10 to 10/10, so did this effectively close the series and have a fitting ending?
