One of the things I have talked about in the past are the odd constraints that I have on trying to be fully functional gaming in two different locations. One of the things I learned early on is that for martial bliss I need to be able to game from the living room without actually taking control of the television. My wife and I are the sort of people who are completely happy doing different things, while in the same room… occasionally watching something on television together while doing these different things. So she will be on her end of the sectional cocooned in a blanket fort messing with her laptop, and I will be doing roughly the same on my end of the sofa playing on my laptop. The only hitch in this setup is that gaming laptops do not stay relevant for long. Mine for example is from 2015ish with a 4th Gen Core i7 and GTX 960M dedicated graphics, however it performs considerably lower than that as is the case with pretty much every laptop … [Read more...] about Wireless Ethernet

Hi, fellow gamer and MMO enthusiast! Since we started our Kickstarter campaign, a development roadmap has been one of the updates most requested by the community. In the beginning, we were wondering whether to focus on Alpha 1 or provide an overview from now till full release. In the end we came to a conclusion: why not both? So, without further ado, let’s get to the point – with a small clarification first! Development Phases VS Testing Phases The development of Fractured from now till full release is split into 4 large periods of time, called development phases (or cycles). In chronological order, they’re named Alpha Phase 1, Alpha Phase 2, Beta Phase 1, Beta Phase 2. Here’s a recap of the cheapest pledge packs you can buy to get access to the game within each development phase: Knight (€200 / €150 Early Bird): Alpha Phase 1 Patron (€100 / €90 Early Bird): Alpha Phase 2 Founder (€60 / €50 Early Bird): Beta Phase 1 Recruit … [Read more...] about Development Roadmap
This is the full version of entries that have been published in the last week! I just thought it might be nicer to have everything in one huge entry instead of in separate ones (either way: You can find all entries in the category labelled “rift vs. lotro vs. wow” on the right). The topic I wrote some time ago about “Rift vs. LotRO” is still getting readers almost every day. Unfortunately, it is probably not the kind of topic they were looking for. So, since I’ve played both games (at least for a little while), I thought I would make an elaborate posting about those games. I’m also going to throw in World of Warcraft because, apart from playing it as well, the big majority of MMO gamers have played the game or know something about the game, at least. :) (After starting to write this, I realised how long this entry would be in the end and decided to split it into different topics to be posted separately. So expect a posting every day for the next few … [Read more...] about Rift vs. LotRO vs. World of Warcraft – a closer look at all three MMOs (all entries in one)
Many people think – hey what’s the rocket science in choosing a web hosting service provider! With so many of them and really cheap ones, we can go sign up with anyone. There definitely isn’t any. But this being an area sensitive from your business’ point of view, it is actually a matter of wise analysis of few fundamental parameters. Basic features may sound more or less the same, with little tweaking in figures here and there. However, the secret to choosing a professional and exceptional web host lies in its advance features and the after sale support. Although Reviews and technical forums are anytime a great source to be informed and update about overall quality parameters, it is always better to have some personal investigation done so as to eliminate any chances of getting misled by fake or cooked reviews. As a blogger and webmaster I always prefer customer support, reliability and of course the price, as my top most priority features. My concept is … [Read more...] about Hostgator Vs Hostmonster: Which is the Best Host?
If you’re an active internet user, it’s more likely that you’re using a cloud storage service (or an online backup service). If you’re not using it already, then sooner or later you’re going to need it. A cloud storage service can be useful to you in several ways. For instance, it can save the disk space on your PC if you store your photos and videos online. Also, it can be used as a backup service so that your files are all safe in the cloud even if your computer hard drive crashes. And yeah, today cloud storage service has become increasingly popular because of their cross-platform support. It means that you can upload your documents from your PC to the cloud and can instantly access it via your mobile. Comparison: Microsoft OneDrive vs. Dropbox vs. Google Drive vs. Amazon Cloud Drive vs. Box vs. Mega vs. iCloud Drive I have already compared the best cloud storage services back in 2012 but things changed a lot ever since. So I’m going to compare … [Read more...] about OneDrive vs Dropbox vs Google Drive vs Cloud Drive vs Box vs Mega vs iCloud Drive
