ESO Beta b*****s

by Ali, 9 January 2014 @ 19:58


Upon my return to sunny Vienna I had the very nice welcome home present of an ESO beta key for the test this weekend. If you signed up for the beta, make sure you check you email (including spam folders) to see if you lucked out.

If you weren’t so lucky, I will give a report on my experience here next week.

A Tale of Two Cities

The bad news is: We couldn’t all get together this year…
The good news is: We can still get our LAN on geo-asynchronously!

Join Fumbles or frag_spawn in the future for some old-school LANnage.

Spray here.

A Cure for WoW

by Ali, 22 December 2013 @ 12:58


For what will be the seventeenth time on these forums, you life will end (or at least mine will) on 4 April next year when The Elder Scrolls Online releases for PC and Mac.

And the good news is that you can all stop playing WoW (again, for the seventeenth time).

That is all,



Gaming Keypads

by Ali, 11 December 2013 @ 07:13


So I am considering buying a Razer Orbweaver but haven’t used a gaming keypad before.  Has anyone used them?  Thoughts, comments, scathing criticisms welcome.


Running commentary

  1. Looks alright. Need to see some non-rendered actual gameplay tho.

  2. I dunno about $120 for 30 days play… there’s no offline mode is there? 😉 Do the 5 days early access mean you get 35 days play? I’m guessing not.

    On a positive note, here’s a link that gets Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag thrown in for free:

  3. Good lord that’s bad!

  4. Thanks JP.

    I have to admit that I have become accustomed to chiclet keys having been on the laptop for over a year now. The small travel and big key surface-area is a big plus over mechanical keys IMO. The mechanical keys on the Orbweaver seem nice though.

  5. 0 experience with em, but I just bought a Cherry Black clone (steelseries 6Gv2) and I know my general typing accuracy has gone up, with a noticeable increase in typing speed too.

    So all I can say, is that mechanical is the way to go. But go to a shop and try them out. They are not for everyone…

  6. I will be up for a game. I dont know how well it will run but it is installing now and hopefully will be fully functional if not I probs upgrade is 2 weeks and will be ready to roll then.

  7. Totally, BL2 is still rockin’! Tiny Tina DLC is a hoot 🙂

    They are doing weapon rebalancing at the moment. One weapon at a time, day by day with upped drops (of that weapon) disguised as a contest: (sadly, only americans can win the money and nvidia loot, but we get the drops!)

    And the halloween headerhunter boss dlc will be out on Tuesday!…

  8. Ha! I will have to get back into BL2 at some stage.

    I will do a review of classes soon but I would say that you want a Sorcerer with their daedric summoning. Having said that Elder Scrolls classes are just a starting point and anyone can pretty much do anything.

  9. um… which of these factions is most like a mechromancer?

  10. Very helpful 🙂

  11. It’s official, Gamearena have closed our TeamSpeak server. I know this because they sent me this helpful please-come-back-again email:

    Hello Tofu,

    Your Game Server Rental subscription for TeamSpeak has ended.

    Thanks for your support of Australia’s premier Game Server Rental service, and we hope to see onboard again in the future!

    Kind regards,
    The Game…

  12. Bizarre!

  13. I’m amused that GameArena (Telstra) are getting out of the voice business!

  14. No biggie. I just kinda look like this now…

  15. I have not gotten wood, but I do have holidays! What is everyone up too?
