Red Dead Redemption 2 - Release Info

I have a feeling that some of the people I know might be playing this when it hits on PC finally.  In a PC Gamer article, the author who's played it on console said "It's basically a massive cowboy RPG". I have to admit my interest is peaked after reading this article. Rockstar set the release date of November 5th with their own launcher including special bonuses available to players who pre-purchase through the Rockstar Games Launcher starting October 9th.

Move Over Ogame!

Remember all those good times paying Ogame when it wasn't P2W? So many of us were playing it off and on several of us always wondered what it would be like to have a fully 3D game like Ogame but better and not P2W. Well here we have it! Outscape is just exactly what we had always hoped for and imagined and you can grab it on Steam right now for 22.49 until October 29th but not to worry, it's only 25.00 normally so you could always pick it up later if you can't afford it now. I myself don't have

Red Dead Redemption 2 - My Impression

It's sometimes hard to sound objective when you yourself are having no real issues while many others are running a video game. Currently the web is littered with complaints about crashing, stuttering, etc. in RDR2 but I'm not having that problem. What I am having are a few disconnects for whatever reason. It's not that frequent but it's there. I finally had to speak up at a couple of sites online stating that I was having a blast and the game is worth but that's a hard pill to swallow for many w

Altice Mobile Offering $20 Unlimited Mobile Plan for Suddenlink Customers

More competition is always better especially when you can get an unlimited cell phone plan for $20 a month. The question is if the service is actually reliable and not full of hidden fees. Non Suddenlink/Optimum customers will have to pay $30 instead of the discounted $20 price that Suddenlink and Optimum customers get but personally I think I'll let early adopters test this before I jump on the bandwagon. Below is their plan details:

Season 3 in Apex Legends Is Also Bringing a New Map

If you have been needing something more to twist your arm to play some more Legends, not only do we get a new Champion for Season 3 but also a new map! It looks like we'll see ice and snow for the first time as well and a train filled with loot making it a challenging in motion object to land on and fight for. I don't about you but this looks like fun and I hope I can get some of you to join me in checking it out when it hits October 1st!

Minecraft Server

For those that dabble around on my Minecraft Server, please know that it is currently down while I work on some finishing touches on the server as well as this new website. Don't worry I'm not getting rid of it, I just need some time to tidy things up. Thanks for your patience. **EDIT** It's now back up!

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse - Early Access

If you love Battle Royale but want to try something a little different, AoCA will be hitting early access on September 24th giving you the chance to do so. This standalone game comes before the MMORPG Ashes of Creation game giving you the option to test new content and systems. Frankly, I just want the MMORPG to hurry up and come out since I'm a backer and will stick to Apex Legends for my Battle Royale enjoyment but maybe one you might enjoy giving this a shot.   Here is the press rel

PS5 Reveal

Today was the Playstation 5 reveal and as usual people have mixed reactions to it. Being a PC gamer mainly I don't really put much stock into any console release usually but that's not to say I don't enjoy some console gaming here and there. I have however paid a little more attention to the PS5 & new XBOX that are coming as they are both going to be pretty powerful consoles and I like powerful hardware! 🙂 I'm not going to go into any depth on that but I will say the PS5 looks alot different

Death to RGB!

More and more we are starting to see a showing of people who are over RGB themed cases, GPU's, Fan's, AIO Coolers, and so on. They want to start seeing things back to the more simplistic time with less lights and froo froo. Getting back to the basics means less cost when manufacturing hardware too. Like the excerpt pictured above I pulled from an add I got this morning there is a movement in the industry getting back to the basics as well. This makes a lot of sense from an economical stance but

Temtem? Pokemon? Huh?

Pokemon fans have been asking for it for years, most of us have wondered what it would be like and well..here it is! There's one thing though and that is that it's not made by Nintendo! Temtem was created by a game development company by the name of Crema based out of Madrid, Spain. This massively multiplayer creature-collection adventure was successfully funded in a Kickstarter campaign on June 3, 2018. The game is published by Humble. Temtem is still currently in development but was released t

Surface Neo (Tablet) & Surface Duo (Phone) Show Off Folding Abilities & More

The Surface Neo, Microsoft's newly announced dual screen folding tablet is eye catching and features a 360-degree hinge for it's dual 9 inch displays so that it can be used as a small sized tablet that is capable of having it's screen size doubled.     Even more surprising is the details about a fold-able phone! You might be thinking why would they even try that again after their last fail in the mobile market but to make this even more interesting, it's going to be usin

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

I know the following trailer came out a couple of days ago and I'm just now posting it but if you haven't seen it yet you should really watch it if you are any type of Star Wars fan. I've already pre-ordered tickets and am going to watch it at a local theater with some friends. For many this is kind of an emotional experience as it is the last of the movies. Star Wars helped me fall in love with Sci-Fi, space, and the idea of there being other life out there besides us on Earth. Are you going to

Let us know how you feel about these delays in the comments below! https://www.pcgamer.com/destiny-2-beyond-light-expansion-delayed-to-november/

In a comparison done by techspot.com the numbers clearly show a huge spankin done to PCIe v3.0.

PCIe 4.0 SSDs that "never die"?

Samsung will be releasing two new SSD lines both utilizing PCIe 4.0 granting faster speeds but also are fail proof. The PM1733 and PM1735 series will sport 19 different models  using the HHHL (card-type) and 2.5-inch U.2 formats. The average person will most likely not be able to afford these as there were designed to be used in data centers and servers ranging in storage sizes starting at 0.8TB to a tantalizing 30.72TB! They are said to perform at sequential write speeds of 3,800MB/s. The U.2 D
