It’s this time of the year, rare time when it’s actually warm, sunny and nice (sometimes) here in Russia. Time for BBQ with friends, summer houses, spending time outside, eating some fresh fruit instead of wooden imported overpriced replicas.
All that implies more days off for me as you already probably guessed and I’d say even more – whole vacation, just like last year. So in this trade offer I receive better rest, mood and mental, while you will receive some nice content from rested and motivated me. But more about it in details… Continue reading “Summer Nerdy Fest. Plans for next few months”
Since Pepega Brewery is running on fundraiser basically and you guys are main investors technically, it makes sense to post a financial report about its work, not gonna implement any lootboxes or microtransactions to increase profits btw, making it clear straight up.
But seriously many were interested in costs of making your own beer, so this will be a useful post, even though obviously prices are russian, but many things are imported, so it should be somewhat similar and will help you to plan what you need to buy in general. Let’s go… Continue reading “First batch of beer financial calculations”
1st of May aka Labour Day was always one of the most important holidays here during soviet time, due to ideological meaning mostly of course, but they still kept it after the fall, just renamed a bit and now it’s more “casual”, was quite surprised to find out that it is celebrated in other countries too.
Perfect to put a little bit of labour in I’d say for 1st of May and rest of the month too while at it, making it into sort of marathon, more details and plans in full post… Continue reading “Labour Day, more like Labour Month”
Now that I posted my opinion about special treatment for streamers in general it’s time to analyze the situation that caused all the uproar recently and apply my vision to it.
My general vision was in previous post, now it’s more about one particular situation… Continue reading “My take on priority queue situation for streamers in PoE”
In case you aren’t playing Path of Exile and don’t watch streamers related to it, even though that “drama” went quite far from game’s usual circle for a day or two, I’ll give a very quick tl;dr – launch of new league was a disaster with people getting disconnected and with big queues while streamers got provided priority login by devs skipping queue, which of course made people mad. I’ll post about this particular case separately soon, this one is already massive.
This situation in general is not really new, but it didn’t get any rallying point before for masses to gather and create enough noise around the problem. But now we got it verbalized and it’s perfect time to think about it and discuss it, which we already did on stream before and during current events, so time to write down my current opinion. Continue reading “My take on streamers getting priority, early access and other benefits”
Meta is a pretty popular term nowadays in our gaming circles, coming from competitive games and used in many other departments now. In short Meta in gaming stands for state of things in some environment that becomes most popular or even default. Can use it anywhere, but gaming is the easiest example – some character or composition of characters becomes popular being most effective/versatile and you can expect to see them very frequently in your games. Could call it trends or something, but considering our mostly gaming background I think it’s just easier to use meta for everyone to understand what was meant.
This is just my vision and might be series of posts that probably won’t even be “finite” since Meta changes, there are new things that develop their own Meta and then things also tend to evolve sometimes not discretely, but you can see that slow wind of change that you can also try to analyze and predict where things are going. Continue reading “Twitch Meta. Intro post and some of my vision”
Only one month since my stream anniversary, all the fundraising and good stuff, feels like it was way longer. That’s a good sign though – means a lot of stuff happening lately and I like it a lot compared to when nothing happens and time just disappears nowhere.
What is currently happening and what’s planned for upcoming month and maybe even longer in full post… Continue reading “Little update on current situation, plans, brewery etc”
Finished a lot of RPGs quite close to each other, so reviews got a bit spread out in time due to my day offs (should write couple of posts yesterday and day before on my day offs too, but completely derped). Like with Gothic 2 this review will be somewhat connected with previous game review that I wrote earlier.
Let’s see what Spiders made this time… Continue reading “My imqhotbqh on The Technomancer”
A little delayed, since I finished the game last week, but didn’t get a day off to sit down and write stuff properly. Should start doing some writing on my regular days too and be less lazy, but that’s the hard part, especially with current season and weather changes – feeling sleepy all the time and in a weird unmotivated mindset.
Main thing about this review is that pretty much everything from first game review is valid for this one too with some minor differences that are mostly in positive direction, but let’s get to details (version with Night of the Raven expansion btw)… Continue reading “My imqhotbqh on Gothic 2”
A little bit delayed, but better late than never. Spiders RPGs started for me with their latest one – Greedfall and it was actually pretty good (unfortunately didn’t write a review back then). Now I got to one of their earlier games and playing through dilogy of their Mars games, currently finishing The Technomancer and that review is probably coming next day off next week.
But for now it’s about Mars: War Logs, so let’s get to it… Continue reading “My imqhotbqh on Mars: War Logs”
