So Black Friday sales are almost upon us and no real hints that Amazon AU will be open before or even for the sales but many rumours are end of November. You can already get a idea of what items will be on offer in the initial opening by going to AmazonAU and searching for items that interest you.
I am hoping that they are indeed going to be open for black Friday sales or at the very latest in time for Christmas item to arrive before well Christmas as I am hoping to upgrade my PC so I can play games with better FPS than I currently do with my ageing I7 2600K
Some of the items I want are already listed but of cause are currently unavailable and no price so hoping this time next week parts are on on the way but if not there are plenty places I can order from just hoping for a better deals on Amazon
So It is safe to say I played Factorio a far bit as I have finished all achievements and for a time I still played but stopped playing when info for 0.15 was out due to the changes coming
0.15 was due out this month (late February) but reading the latest Friday Facts #177 looks like it will slip into march(or later), on one hand I really wanted to play 0.15 but on the other I understand why they will miss there deadline so will have to go back to waiting knowing the Dev’s are doing a good job.
This is why i am happy to wait, Factorio would have to be one of my best value game for time played vs cost at around .07¢ an hour at games current price but I think it was on sale when I got it and the game is still only a early access game so yeah awesome value and outstanding work from the dev’s.
So I sort of replayed the time I would spend playing world of tanks with playing factorio and as such have been smashing out the achievements and was down to the last three.
Lazy bastard that I find odd as it will take more time and effort to do, Mass production 3 where I need to produce 20M electronic circuits that will take a bit of time and of cause course Golem where you need to survive a 500+ damage but I was stumped.
I tried the running in a biters base with mk2 armour and mk2 shields to no avail but it was fun. I then did a quick search and people were saying maybe get hit by a train so gave that a try and failed. I then put 15 mk2 shields on my mk2 amour and bingo that worked so well it stops the train but did I need 15 mk2 shields? no it is more like 7ish but I guess it comes down to how fast the train is going so save before impact just in case lol
starting to get some good weather, not to hot or cold so I spent a hour cleaning the BBQ and since it was clean I had to use it. I did do something I do not do often and had a alcoholic beverage(coopers pale ale) during the week but it went down well.
You can see I cooked some onion, beef sausage, and some sizzle steak and some chicken kebabs. I skipped the salad as both supermarkets lacked fresh stuff, I mean they had things to make a salad but yeah no pass.
The down side was I seen and well you can to is just how much I have neglected the yard, it is so untidy so I think need to work on that
Mafia III where to start, like a lot of people I pre ordered it before waiting for reviews oh and talking of reviews there was none before the games was released. I think this is a trend for games that fail to live up to there predecessor or hype and once you have impatiently parted with your cash it is to late.
Lets start with the bad, the 30 FPS thing at release I could forgive if it was not for the game looking like I am short sighted and for me that detracts from the game by a lot even more than just dated graphics or low detail textures and helps to make the game look washed out, I think the developers should fix it even if they just copied the sweetfx look would be a very good improvement. Sweetfx make the game looks better but people have reported crashing 🙁
Now to the good things, time period is nice and backed with some very good period music that adds to the atmosphere, the story line is also good. The car physics are also done well with a good selection of cars.
Conclusion? The game is very fun with nice music but graphics let the game down, Would I buy it again at full price? Well no I would wait to it is on sale but then again I am cheap 😉
and for the people that are to lazy to look up just how good Sweetfx makes the game look here is a good vid showing it off
So I have been slack and stopped streaming again just when people started to watch so breaking any momentum that I might have been building up… lol. I also stopped playing world of tanks due to I was only playing for missions plus to platoon with the people I do and well the time vs reward for missions for me was not worth it, to play for random rewards no thanks my luck with RNG is very bad. I Still have loads of world of tank vids I could edit but now I stopped playing and streaming finding it hard to be motivated as I only do it for a bit of fun and practise at editing.
So I have started to post a bit more here as it does not take that much time 🙂
FOOD, well anyone that has read past blog posts know I am a bit(lot) lazy so when it comes to cooking I like things quick and easy to make but the food still has to be nice.
I made Teriyaki meatballs with rice and broccoli that was so nice and prep and cooking time was good, I will make a post with the recipe plus images next time I make it
so here is the part where i link the youtube video
