Overwatch Chinese New Year Event Starts January 24th

It’s the Year of the Rooster, boys and girls, and Overwatch is celebrating with an event starting on January 24th. No major details yet, but there are confirmed skins for Mei and D.Va.

Edit: Just a head’s up, a previous version of this post said the event began on the 25th, but all current news sources say the 24th. I guess Blizzard decided to bump it up a day.

Things I’ve learned after my first night of playing video games on PC after being a console player for 10+ years:

- I’m fucking stupid
- Furthermore I alt+tab’d unwillingly in the middle of a game in a desperate try of using shift ability
- I can already get only headshots as McCree while moving, jumping and rolling in the practice range with a fairly high sensitivity (am I a natural or is it lucky?)
- I’m positive I will get better at playing video games on PC than I was on console after how good it went
- I appear to use a claw grip without any conscious choice of doing so
- My hands are tiny, my wrists delicate (the skin on it that is, meanwhile it’s strong in itself from deadlifts lol) and my nails are long and get stuck in my keyboard(???)
- I already want to change my battlenet account name slightly, why is it so important to me!!!

The Division Year One Roadmap!

Incursions: In April, the first free update will introduce the first incursion, a new challenging end-game activity developed specifically for squad play. Teams will be able to test their skills as they face seemingly unstoppable enemies to gain high-level weapons and equipment. This update will also add one of the community’s most-wanted feature, loot trading; allowing players in the same group to trade loot collected during a co-op game session.

Conflict: In May, the second free update will add new features to the Dark Zone and add a new incursion in the iconic Columbus Circle.

Expansion I: Underground
Available in June, this first major expansion lets players explore the uncharted underworld of New York City. Players will chase deadly enemies with up to three other Agents through an endless maze of tunnels and subways.

Expansion II: Survival
Available this summer, this expansion will challenge players to survive as long as possible by gathering essential supplies in a very hostile environment.

Expansion III: Last Stand
Next
winter, a new threat rises as players and their squad must prepare to defend against a relentless foe.

My new years’ resolution? Heh, it’s the same as it was last year. My monitor is 4KHD. PC gaming for life. Eat my dust, consoleailures

anonymous asked:

Hi Ania-senpai and Clive-kun, I got questions for the both of you For Ania: What else do you do, besides Youtube? For Clive: How long have you known Ania? PS~Ania, you're the biggest inspiration that I ever had. (I do comic dubs too and I wish I could collab with you one day)

Ania: I go on tumblr, watch anime and play PC games!

Clive: Technically we ‘met’ at the start of last year but MORE technically we met 4 years ago because my sister introduced me to her but I was too shy to talk to that sexy beauty

Thoughts on Her Interactive/MID Hiatus

I have been playing Nancy Drew PC games since 1998.  To put that in perspective, at 25 years old, HER Interactive has been a fairly important part of my social life for 72% of my time on this earth.  These games were the bedrock of my formative years.  In middle school, my best friend and I would have sleepovers to play these games together every single weekend- and we still play them together at 25!  Indeed, I’ve always joked that everything I need to know about feminism I learned from Nancy Drew, and I was only sort of joking.  I’ve talked to girls who have said these games introduced them to their prospective careers, that they were solace in times of bullying, that they encouraged them to explore their surroundings and make bolder choices, or even just that they brought their friends and family closer together.  It’s with that history in mind, that I am one of the many fans who have followed HER from its very inception and grown up with it, that I want to begin discussing some of my own trepidation surrounding whatever the heck is happening with the company right now.

Have you ever wondered how twenty-two years of change in PC gaming and technology look?

Here it is. Both games from the same franchise, being played on (clearly) different PCs, in the same space, at the same time. Both of them are even running the first level of each game!

What a time to be alive

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind - Armor 

Developed by Bethesda, The Elder Scrolls is one of the longest lasting RPG franchises in video games, with the most recent release being that of Skyrim. Before Skyrim and Oblivion, Morrowind was a breakthrough for the world of RPGs, existing as an open-world fantasy game on both XBox and PC that won over 60 awards (including Game of the Year).

Morrowind takes place in the land of Vvardenfell, a Dunmer island within the continent of Morrowind. It focuses in on Dagoth and other dieties, and sees Imperials and other humans as more outsiders, compared to Skyrim and later titles. Part of the success of Morrowind, however, is the expansive nature of the game, and the level at which it’s filled out: there is endless variety in the armor that you can outfit your character with: Daedric armor, chitin armor, armor fashioned of iron and steel, or iron of bronze. Many of the human armors (Imperial) take reference from real-world conquistador armors, while armor for the Dwemer, for example, is much more “out there”.
