Rush_Tom_SawyerTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  Have picked Tom Sawyer by Rush this week.  Rush is one of the most famous Canadian bands.  They have many great songs but this is my favourite.  It is off their 1981 album Moving Pictures.  You can see the official music video > here or below.

Red Dead Online Beta Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 27, 2019 by getbent57

There was a big update out for Red Dead Online on February 26, 2019.   It is not just gameplay balances.  They are adding all kinds of new stuff like weapons and cloths.  There will gameplay modes and challenges.  One that caught my eye is the competitive fishing.  If you choose to take part the game gives you all the gear you will need.  Just need to go to the right body of water.  To win you have to have the highest weight total in fish caught.  All so other players can’t shoot you.   Which is nice to have.  You can see all what will be add at the RockStar Games official post > here.

[Update] Tired out some of this.  The game does seem run better.  They added daily challenges.  There were seven to do.  Some of them seemed silly while others seemed to hard.  One was to eat five fresh produce.   While one had you shoot five players from a moving train.  Forget what the others were.  Did do the eat the fresh produce.  Which gave me 200XP and 0.01 gold.

Trails Rising Open Beta Hands On Video

Have a bonus video this week for the I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry YouTube channel.  Played Trails Rising Open Beta.  Am a fan of the Trails games.  They can be very fun but all so very frustrating.  There is a point where the tracks become too hard.  Am sure this version will have that as well.  If the game is cheap enough just might pick it put.  You can see my gameplay footage > here and below.

Trails Rising Open Beta Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 25, 2019 by getbent57

Tried out the open beta for Trails Rising.  Am a fan of theses games.  So having a new ones is cool.  Pre-loaded the game February 19, 2019.  Then the beta ran from February 21 to 24.  It plays much like that previous game.  This time around there is a lot more details in the world.  Was having fun with the game. When you level up you unlock a loot box.  Its not a big deal.  Until I seen you can spend real money to buy in game points to unlock more boxes.  I know many games do that.  Just seems out of place now since many big title games (even some Ubisoft) have gotten lots a flack for having them.  Over all did enjoy the beta.  Just might buy the full game.  Do have an upcoming video on the beta over at the I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry YouTube channel.  So watch out of that.

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry.  I unbox a PlayStation themed mystery box made by CultureFly.  Found this back in December (2018).  Have seen many unboxing videos on YouTube.  So decided to get it a try for myself.  Was a bit disappointed in some of the items.  My favourite is the coaster set.  Each one is a deigned on the controller face buttons.  You can give the video a watch > here or below.

WreckfestGot to try out the racing game Wreckfest on PC a few days back.  This has have been in early access form for many years.  Then official released in June 2018.  The people making the game have a long history of making racing games with destruction a big part of them.  This one has a crazy amount of destruction.  Very impressive.  All so impressed with the handling of the few cars I got to try.  The game is said to be out on Xbox One and PS4 some time this year (2019).  Amazon.ca has it listed for March 31, 2019.  Will have to keep my eye on it.  Will have to get a copy.  Very fun game.
