Svalbard 2014

Hope everyone had a happy new year. For anyone interested, here’s a video compilation of the recent IPX* trip to Svalbard (don’t forget to hit the HD and full screen buttons, its worth it):

Svalbard – The High Arctic from Peter Cox on Vimeo.

If you look closely, you can see Shad and I in the boat (I’m the asian guy, Shad’s the asian girl).

*- IPX = For the purposes of this story, IPX = Peter Cox and his associates. Credit where credits due, this lucky bastard got to travel through Svalbard and get some amazing footage from an area I’ve only ever read about or seen pictures of. Check it out.

NBA 2K15 half price

If anyones interested in getting 2K15, it’s currently half price here: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/167960

Retail is $69.95 US which works out to be about $81 with conversion. $40 at the link above.

2K15 is a whole different beast to 2K14 and earlier on PC. It has a new mode called My Park.

It’s 2 on 2 or 3 on 3, where you control one player. It’s a great arcadey mode that anyone could get into. It would be a lot of fun to have 6+ IPXers in there playing that mode.

Here’s the first video I found on mypark. When I have some time later I’ll post another one…

Rust looks GOOD!

It’s been a while. No… actually it’s been a LONG while since I’ve played Rust. I’ve been preoccupied with NBA, and other endeavours.

But today I decided it was time to fire up some Rust and see how the new versions going. It looks really good. I haven’t kept up with the Devblog to see all these changes. But it’s very different and looks a heap more playable than last time I joined.

In 10 minutes of playtime I found:

- Some houses – A massive satelite dish, that I climbed to the top of (unsure if human made or part of the map) – Fought a deer – Killed a naked and stole his skull – Spent most of the remaining 9 minutes just staring at the beautiful scenery and wondering where to go – Until I found another house. Banged on its door for a while until a guy with a spear came out, speared me, stole my rock while I was dying, and left me to bleed out.

Think it’s worth giving another go with a bunch of people if anyones interested.

RUST!!!

Battlefield 3 - On the house

Battlefied 3 appears to be FREE for a short time.

https://www.origin.com/en-au/store/free-games/on-the-house

Having played and owned it, I highly suggest you DO NOT GET THIS GAME. It represents all that is evil in PC gaming.

If you do not heed my advice, I suspect you will end up in the same situation as me… owning BF3, but owning none of the $30+ expansion packs, and thus be unable to play on any kind of useful server.

Also the game sucks.

You have been warned. In fact I probably shouldn’t have posted this blog….

Deleting in 3…. 2…. 1…

The Survival Games: Rust knockoff, or something new?

This morning on my travels to work I stumbled upon this interesting project:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/960282592/the-survival-games?ref=live

Multiplayer survival game, based on the Unity Engine. A lot of the objects look idenitical to Rust (I’m guessing because it’s built on the same engine). But they do have a few interesting concepts of their own:

- Traps – Natural disasters (meteors, earthquakes) – Weather

At the very least it can only be good competition for Rust.

Thoughts?
