Got my new CPU fan installed today, and I'm getting about 7-10 degrees Celsius cooler while idling now than I was with my H60 liquid cooler. I think the H60 is just a piece of crap, and this was a much cheaper fix than going for one of the dual 120mm coolers.

Also, I caught up on some Domingo Ayala videos today (he's been making a lot lately). This was one of my favorites.



Most of the stuff he says is just crazy, but that one actually makes a lot of sense, haha.

There's another guy doing a similar thing to Domingo named Kent Murphy. He's not as clean as Domingo and probably isn't as funny either. But some of his stuff is worth checking out. The Slow Pitch Home Run Derby and Rainout videos are both pretty good. :)


Yeah I've always found it weird that so many pros sit on 3-0 counts. Usually it's a predictable fastball that's not going to be on the corner, so just take a chance to knock that one out. No wonder Domingo is a 3 time rookie of the year; he knows his stuff

Wow...so, Payday 2 is getting medieval weapons and armor as a crossover thing with Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.

http://www.pcgamer.c...sy-of-chivalry/

 

It's funny because that's also the game that Rocket League is crossing over with, adding armor car toppers and stuff. I guess Chivalry just wants to whore its assets out to as many games as possible, haha.

Looks like the EA Access trial is up early.  I have it downloading now after seeing Cheapy tweet about it.

Looks like someone else already made a team named the Rockets.  So it won't let me make that the name.  Since it has you name the team separately from the city name it won't let me duplicate it.

LOL...the clip of the kids soccer team got me. Looked exactly like Rocket League, haha. All they needed was the "BOOM!" overlay when the kid fell down.

Yeah, me neither. Hershey Nuggets sounds good though. Not like it'll be our only team anyway, haha. Might as well get it while it's hot.... Ewww

Lol, OK we got the Hershey Nuggets.  There was a Shockers PBP name that was tempting for the Hershey Shockers.

Also, not sure if Brandon or anyone else is in the market for a headset, but I saw this in the deals forum today. Pretty awesome deal.

Also, looks like the no sending club invite thing wasn't just for the beta.  So I will accept the join requests when I can after you guys send them.

I am actually pretty well set for now with my Turtle Beach headset for the One.  Only headset I would replace is the cheap Tritton headset I got for my PS4 but I don't play it enough to make it worth it.

Good advice both in NHL 16 and in life.

Damn. Full credit to EA for listening to what the people want and giving it to them.

I just pray the new player classes do a better job of negating douchery than stat caps did. When you guys get some club games going (or even drop ins), see if Power Forward still feels like it's better than everything else. The one thing I could see making a difference is if they slowed it down, so you felt like you couldn't keep up (or had to play super cautious).

 

I know the game always seems to play best in the beginning (when everybody's stats are shit and they can't do magic tricks on the ice). But I'm still not clear on how the classes level up. Do your skills increase individually based on your performance? (ie. get a bunch of assists = passing skill increases) Or do they go up universally (according to your class) when you reach certain levels...like cards in the past?

So I just played a single player season game. My 80-rated team against some 60-ish team. Final score? 34-0 me. Seems legit.

Yes, we have a team. If you have DarkTower on your friend list, you can just filter the club search by "friends only" and send a join request to "Nuggets". I sent one just a few moments ago, myself.

The stats don't go up at all for any player classes. They are all locked in.

Yeah. You do level up in a meaningless user ranking system and earn fancy medallions which EA says will be "prominently displayed" in game. Yippee.

I can't wait to see XxX420BlazinXxX with is Prestige Level 3 badge. It's going to be so dope.

 

In other news, my strong sexual feelings toward all you gentlemen is starting to overcome (yeah, I said it) my desires to not give EA money.

 

I acquired a $100 Best Buy gift card yesterday (took advantage of their promo for upgrading to a Samsung Galaxy S6...which came with the gift card and a free Galaxy Tab 3 tablet), so I think I'm finally going to bite the bullet, go to Best Buy this weekend, sign up for GCU and get my NHL pre-order in. With Rock Band, South Park, and another UFC game coming down the pipe, it seems like a reasonably prudent thing to do.

 

So excited about all those HUT packs, lol. Oh boy. :)
