DLC number three for Alien: Isolation is on its way, very cool! I loved every god damn minute of that game and can't wait for more of it. A recap of the DLC's follows.
Crew Expendable : Mother is running simulations to determine the best way to handle the alien and in this particular simulation you choose who you want to play as and go in to the air ducts where you play out the movie scene where Dallas was closing off air vents trying to pen the alien in. Prior to engaging this mission you are free to explore the entire ship which has been painstakingly recreated!
Last Survivor : Ripley is the only one left alive and in this mother simulation you get to run around the belly of the Nostromos arming the reactors to explode and escaping in the shuttle pod!
The next dlc isn't tied to the first movie, its tied to the events of the game itself and expands on the lore of the game. Its called Corporate Lockdown. In this dlc Seegson Exec Ransome learns that he has been financially cut off from the company, he knows the Torrens is on its way and decides to make his escape taking encoded Nostromo flight recorder data with him. However, there's some loose ends he wants to tie up before doing so...
This third dlc will introduce gauntlet mode which challenges players to complete all three survivor challenges back to back without dieing. October 28th, can't wait!
My iPad Air 2 is scheduled to arrive tomorrow! Two days before their supposed to be in anyones hands! Win! Faster processor, better screen anti-glare, better screen quality, thinner, finger print scanner, better camera, gold. They ditched the 32gig model this year and shuffled down the larger sized models accordingly so this year I get a 128gig for the same price as my 64 gig last year.
My Apple tv was delivered today and finally the vagueness of this damn device is lifted. Here is what you can do with it.
. Watch hulu and netflix
. Watch any major tv station so long as you have a provider your already paying for it.
. Access itunes and stream any music you own as well as the radio stations, podcasts, movies, etc.
. Access your itunes on your pc wirelessly which gives access to your playlists.
. Access your phone's itunes for same reason as your pc.
. Airplay for games that support it. If the game doesn't support it you can still hear your games music play.
Not bad, was hoping for some sort of subscription system where I paid say 10 dollars for hbo, 5 bucks for history channel, etc, etc but oh well. Wife loves this thing, its set up in the living room downstairs and she access to all her music without having to set the laptop up down there.
3 1/2 weeks till Warlords of Draenor.
Last thursdays Space Engineer update fixed weapons! No more exploding turrets when firing on npcs! I'm back in to the game hardcore, working on 2.0, collecting npc ships that I don't happen to blow up, also figured out how to add asteroids and discovered that there is an asteroid that the game as a default will never use when creating a new singleplayer or multiplayer save. The reason is its size, its almost 3 times the size as the asteroid I call home. I added it, going to build something on it eventually.
Styx got its first patch last week, fixed every single complaint every review had about it. This game is an assassin's creed / thief game from the perspective of a goblin. Very cool, well priced at less than 30 dollars.
Rooster Teeth just wrapped up season 12 of its show Red vs Blue and that end was amazing! Revealed who the main antagonist of both 12 and 11 is, and its someone I had completely forgotten about who has been a player in the series since season... 3? 4? Can't wait to see where they go with this :)
Shadows of Mordor got its second free dlc today. Adds a "Black hand of Sauron" skin and three new overpowered runes. Nature run makes you immune to poison, Ascendant doubles focus time for ranged combat and Elven Grace cuts incoming damage in half.
New comic on Order of the Stick!
