Ready Player Two

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2021 by getbent57

It was back in March (2021) was talking about getting a copy of Ready Player Two.  Was waiting for the paperback version.  Since most times it is much cheaper.  Turns out over at the hardcover is cheaper.   Am a huge fan of the first book, Ready Player One.  So I finely ordered a copy of this book.  It should be heard some time this week.  Not sure how long it will take me to read but will be back with a review.

ELEGOO_Neptune_2.jpgGot around to ordering new bed springs for my Elegoo Neptune 2.  In my last post talking about this 3D printer I had trouble leveling the bed in the back left corner.  When would turn the knob to lower or raise that corner it would only move a little.  Have read that some people are replacing the stock springs with better ones.  I just had to find out which one would work the this machine.  These are the ones I ordered > here.  Hoping they will be here soon.  Because I have some plans for a big prints.

The_Art_Of_AMCs_The_Walking_Dead_UniverseAs you many know I am a big fan of the Walking Dead comic as well as the TV shows.  Just found out there is a new book on the way covering all three shows.  It is called The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe.  It will cover, “all in one incredible collection! Includes never-before-seen original sketches, concept art, storyboards, previs art, set concept and engineering art, promotional concept to completion key art, special product illustrations, in-world product art, and much more.”  It sounds pretty cool, until I seen the price. is asking $60.32 (as of tying this, July 23, 2021).  The price might drop before it is set to be out.  Which is October 5, 2021.

Neverwinter On PS4

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 23, 2021 by getbent57

NeverwinterThe free to play MMO action RPG Neverwinter has been around for many years now.  Back in 2016 it was out on the PlayStation 4.  Over those years have looked at it on the PlayStation Store but never downloaded it.  Have tried a few different MMO but never stuck with any.  Was board the day so gave this a try on my PS4.  It is all so out on PC and XBox One.  After making a character you go into a few tutorials missions.  These show the basics of the gameplay.  While playing those found the menu systems very confusing.  All most didn’t make though the open part of the game because found it very boring and generic.  However stuck with it.  Once that is over the game opens up more.  Did a few more beginner missions.  That was more fun.  Think I am going to try some more of this game out.
