Ring Bonus 7: The Legend of Korra Book 1

Tonight on Ring Bonus, we discuss The Legend of Korra: Book 1, which we greatly enjoyed watching this past week. If you haven't watched it yet, we do discuss spoilers on the show, but an audible warning is given before hand. We also discuss house hunting, a recent movie shoot that we were a part of as well as all of the airsoft antics that we have been up to lately.

My Pending WoW Return and What Not

Just a quick post since since I have not done one in a while. The one and only game, other than anything that I play on my phone has been The Sims 4. I think I had originally stated that I would do a follow up, state-of-the-game review post of The Sims 4 about a month or so after it had been released. The answer to that, given that this game is all that I have felt compelled to play for a while is: Yeah, it's pretty fun. It's also pretty spiffy that ghosts, pools, etc are being added in at no additional cost. So, good on you EA.

The Sims 4 will likely take a back seat pretty soon though, possibly this weekend. Word on the street is that the new WoW patch is out and that I should resubscribe because enough people that we know on the server are playing now to group together and instance. Neat. I wonder how broken my user interface is going to be? Also, I've heard that Blizzard has finally added in bag sorting among other things into the game. I can probably just dump half of the addons in my user interface folder.

Other things: We have been super lazy about the podcast lately but will be recording an episode and releasing it this weekend. We haven't been home on the weekends lately, which is our preferred recording time. Legend of Korra is pretty good. Dave and I just finished book one. In all honestly, I had forgotten that Korra was on my to watch list until the Book 4 previews were linked on Reddit. We'll probably end up discussing it on the show. Better late than never, right?

Ring Bonus 6: Gaming and Tech News

We were busy last weekend and lazy last week so we skipped recording an episode last week. Tonight on Ring Bonus we cop out and discuss gaming and tech news for lack of a better topic. We also discuss a variety of other things like the freak ass monsoon from the other week and a truck flying off of the 805.

Odds and Ends: September 30th 2014

I am still playing The Sims 4, but mostly in an on-and-off function. Also still working on my legacy challenge and have posted a couple of chapters here. I am getting kind of tired of playing the same family, so I think that after I catch the blog up to where I am in the game, I will take a small break from the challenge to play another household or work on some other “sim project”.

I have noticed that the load times have gotten a bit longer. Instead of taking about 5 seconds to load a lot, it probably takes around 10 to 15, which is annoying but tolerable so long as it does not increase significantly past that point. I will have to say though, that after almost a month of solid play, the game hasn’t crashed, locked up, or presented any serious issues that have caused me to reload the game or a save (unlike its predecessor). So in that respect I am impressed. I guess.

  • Dave has subscribed to WoW again as we have mentioned in nearly every recent podcast episode. I have holding off for the time being; My slated return to the game will probably either be for the upcoming expansion pack or a little before, perhaps mid October? Not sure. I am pretty tempted to resubscribe earlier than that though though so that I can gear up and do some of the content that I have missed out on (Timeless Isle, Siege Orgrimmar), but we will see.
  • Absolutely everyone is playing Destiny, except for me. By the time I end up purchasing a PS4, I am sure that the fad will have long passed.
  • I want Shadows of Mordor but I also want Smash Brothers 3Ds. I probably shouldn't buy both. Will have to choose one.
  • I have caught up on the Naruto anime and Manga in lieu of it possibly ending soon or from what I have heard, possibly time skipping into a new series/arc soon? Talk about dragging out a fight, geeze...
  • Word on the street is that we need to watch Legend of Korra. For some reason I stopped watching it half way through the first book.

I have also setup a forum that no one will likely visit.

Ring Bonus 5: Airsoft 101 and Stuff

Tonight we expand upon our weekly airsoft bit to discuss Airsofting 101. Specific topics covered are: What is airsoft? What gear do you need to get into airsofting? What types of airsoft guns are available? How much does this all cost? We also briefly discuss Dave’s triumphant (and Keiya’s pending) return to the World of Warcraft, Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Minecraft...errr Mojang, and it just being really really hot lately.
