I have been wanting to mumble about my experiences testing Linux out on my gaming system for weeks already. And now it’s the last day of August and I don’t want to break the minimum-of-a-post-a-month thing I’ve had going on, so it’s coming at ya all rush-like. Enjoy.
I could hold myself back no longer, and have succumbed to welcoming darkness of Mordor. Which is to say, I watched a video of Shadow of Mordor’s Nemesis system in action and got myself well excited to give it a go, so I bought the thing. To ease the pain some, I found a 25% off code for Green Man Gaming so the cash-burn isn’t quite retail-degree. Find out about said code and video after the jump.
GamersGate, some online store I haven’t used before but likely will today, is having themselves a great big Summer Sale Reloaded and a whole lotta Ubisoft games have been well discounted for the next 61 hours. So, y’know, heads up ‘n stuff.
Myself, I’m looking to pick up Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe Edition (75% off), Tom Clancy’s End War (75% off), the AC III Season Pass (75% off), AC IV Black Flag (33% off), and/or AC Freedom Cry (33% off). There are a lot more available, too. Thus far my experience with the site has been pretty positive and I rather like the profile achievements and minion thing they have going on. I’ve yet to buy anything but I’ll update here once I have.
On one of my YouTube adventures (binges) I happened upon a video by Tek Syndicate. Well, actually, I ignored it there in the “recommended” section for a few days and finally let my curiosity out to click on it, but anyway… That indulgence in curiosity has steadily led to Tek Syndicate becoming one of my favourite places on the internet, with their technology and internet news, hardware reviews, and general cool. The Tek, their “main” video series, has become something that I eagerly look forward to watching every week and the other review, news, and gaming videos are almost always informative and interesting (and always entertaining). So, you should watch them (whoever you are), to know more things and stuff.
But that’s not all! Here’s the bit where I reveal an ulterior motive to this post… They’re (well, Logan is) giving away a car (Logan’s car), along with a sweet, new gaming PC that I’d be mighty proud to own (wanna know who Logan is? Watch The Tek! :P). So, y’know, watch The Tek (and everything else Tek Syndicate does), enter the car competition by referring my entry to give me more entries when you make entries (yeah, yeah, I’m in ol’ RSA and not really eligible but whatever, shut up; if you’re in Yankee Land or Canada make friends here, if I win maybe I could ask Logan to drive to you instead of getting him and car stuffed into a container for shipping), and just be a better human Tek. Being. Teing. Err…
