Listen up ya bastiches! When it comes to hunting the galaxy for the dirtiest of bounties and getting your hands even dirtier, there’s only one Czarnian that’s man enough for the job. You’re looking for the ultimate bastich, the scourge of the cosmos and a friend to space-dolphins. And there ain’t nobody alive who can get the job done, the way that Lobo can.
They say change is as good as a holiday. If that’s the case then Riot are on vacation like, all the time, because they often roll out brand spanking new patches for their ever popular MOBA, League of Legends. The latest patch has just been released; it comes packed with balance changes, a new champion, and the return of an intense game mode…
Man, it seems like that Witcher 3, despite being an undeniably great game, is filled with problems, doesn’t it? CD Projekt RED has been pretty damned pro-active in fixing the myriad bugs that still affect the various platforms – but their last patch may have inadvertently added a new one. Users are reporting that many main quests are no longer dishing out experience points. Which. Obviously, detracts from the enjoyment a little.
In last week’s ION, I bitched about the lack of winter. Fast forward one week and lo and behold, COLD! I can feel the flu coming for me, it’s hovering above my head as we speak. I’d get up to go get meds, but my feet are frozen to the floor. Where is summer? I miss it already!
According to my father, one of these days I’m going to be conscripted. But that’s cool. After weeks of playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, I’m looking forward to getting my hands on all those sweet gadgets that the military clearly has. Of course, I’m going to want a selection of Batman gear. Lightweight body armour, batarangs, smoke pellets, gun jammers and more. The works. Our military is outfitted with that kind of stuff, right?
Computex is next week, and we've pretty much heard all we need to before the official unveilings of new cards from both AMD and Nvidia. AMD in particular is going to be extremely interesting - with a brand new range of cards boasting the first ever High-Bandwidth Memory support. They're also going to be DirectX 12 compliant, which is going to be the other deadly edge to the sword.
We’ve already told you that The Oculus Rift is going to be prohibitively expensive when it’s finally released in the first half of next year. The biggest reason, above the price of the headset itself is that the hardware specification needed to run the Rift is beyond the grasp of the average gamer.
Stop for a second and imagine that you’re a college student who just happens to be pretty good at Hearthstone. You have to focus on your studies, but at the same time, you find the time for competitive gaming because you really love it. Your skill and hard work finally pays off. You qualify for the finals of a big tournament, which also includes an all expenses paid trip to the LAN. Only one obstacle remains – your parents – they aren’t fans of your hobby, not even remotely. You bite the bullet and share the news with them. Their response is negative; you can’t attend this tournament, not unless you plan on moving out and supporting yourself through college. Sounds like a tough situation, right? Well it’s exactly what Hearthstone player Marcus “BOXception” Kwak has had to face.
