There is a new flash sale going on in the PlayStation Store (July 2018).  Find it strange that the are having a flash sale so soon after having a weeks long mid-year sale.  Not complaining.  Took a quick look though the list.  You can do so > here.  There is a bunch of stuff that has been on sale many times.  Not sure if they are better deals.  The sale runs from July 20th to 23rd 2018.

Muse – Take A Bow

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 19, 2018 by getbent57

Muse_Black_Holes_And_RevelationsIt is musical throwback Thursday once again.  The song this week is Take a Bow by Muse.  First heard this when it was used in a trailer for the movie Watchmen.  Which happens to be one of my very favourite movies.  Sure the lyrics are very dark but the whole song sounds good in the ears.  There is no official music video.  However they do have a video of them preforming it live.  Which you can see > here or below.  The song is off their 2006 album Black Holes and Revelations.

A little more than to weeks to go before the 2018 Cape Breton Bike Rally.  This year take place August 3rd to 6th, 2018.  I like going to this event every year.  Mostly to see all the motorcycles. All so like watching the stunt show which is all ways good.  Plan to take pictures again this year.  Managed to get a few good ones last year.

No Man’s Sky NEXT Update

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 17, 2018 by getbent57

Been awhile since I talked about No Man’s Sky.  Bought this game when it first came out and enjoyed it.  There have been many fixes and updates along the way.  Just never really went back to the game.  There has been a lot of hate about it on the internet.  Thinking that will change when there new update.  Which they are calling NEXT will be out soon.  July 24, 2018 soon.  That is all so the day the game is out on Xbox One.  That version will have the the new stuff added.  The PS4 and PC version are get the update for free.  The only thing I know they are adding for sure in multiplayer.  As the day comes closer am sure there will get all kinds of info out.  Plan to jump back in to see all the changes.

[Update] Starting working on this post days ago.  Well today (July 17, 2018) there is new info and a trailer about this NEXT update.  You can see the trailer > here.  Over at the PlayStation Blog the have a nice post breaking down what this does to the game.  You can read that > here.  Some of the standout stuff for me, is being able to play with friends, build more than one base, and play in third person.  Of course there is a lot more than that.  Just read the link above.  Not sure how big the download file will be.  Don’t think it will be too big since the game it’s self is much smaller than most PS4 games.  Very much plan to check this out on July 24, 2018.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 16, 2018 by getbent57

The PlayStation Store (is or was depending when this gets posted) running a mid year sale.  One of the game was The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.  This is an MMO set in the Elders Scrolls world.  When the game was first out, like a lot in this type, had an subscription fee.  Then in 2015 they re-branded the game as Tamriel Unlimited dropping the fees.  All so that year it was released on the PS4 and Xbox One.  Since then have been watching for the game to drop in price.  Have wanted to try but I knew it would be much different then play Skyrim.

Well the sale had a good price on it, $13.50.  So bought a digital copy.   I knew the file size would be huge.  Glad I have and external hard drive. When everything was done downloading and installed it takes up 103 GBs.  Have played about three hours so far.  There is a lot going on.  It kind of feels a bit like Skyrim with all kinds of extra layers and layers of stuff on top.  Think it will take me many more hours to figure everything out.

Far Cry 5: Lost On Mars

The first DLC for Far Cry 5, Hours of Darkness was out in June (2018).  The next one called Lost On Mars will be out July 17, 2018.   This piece of DLC is much different.  As you can guess from the name it will take place on Mars.  Were you will fight alien arachnids.  We will get to use all kinds of new weapons and gear.  One of which is a jetpack.  That sounds fun.  They all ready add items from this DLC in to the Arcade mode.  I am guess that there will be more once it is official out.  All so think some of the weapons will make it into the main game.

Outcast_Volume_1_A_Darkness_Surrounds_HimBack in March (2017) I read the first issue of the comic book Outcast by Kirkman and Azaceta.  It came with my copy of the trade paperback The Walking Dead Volume 25: No Turning Back.  Back then I made a post taking about it and how I like it.  Was thinking about buying the trades.  Well a few days back while on Amazon.ca ordering a different book.  Remembered about this one.  So ordered volume 1.  If I like what I read will order the others as well.  Think there are five volumes out so far.  With another one out soon.  Will be back with a review.
