PUBG

March 31, 2017 by Tim

PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLGROUNDS (seriously, they allcapped the title) is the new hotness this week. I dig the idea of battle royale, but H1Z1 never did it for me. It’s too… arcadey? I dunno, it just didn’t click for me. PUBG is a bit more tactical, though. You get to choose when you jump out of the […]

CAD 1.0 Book Set to Australia

March 22, 2017 by Tim

Update: Response was positive enough that I’ve gone ahead and set things in motion to send a pallet of books to AUS. I’ll start taking pre-orders for those book sets in the near future, and they will be first come, first served, but as it takes some weeks for the pallet to make the trip, […]

HTTP vs HTTPS

March 19, 2017 by Tim

If you’re experiencing a problem with the website displaying in plain text, it’s because you’re accessing through HTTPS. We’re aware of the issue, but there’s little point in trying to fix it; we’re launching a new website in a week’s time. So in the meantime, if you access the website via HTTP, it should display […]

Back Button

March 10, 2017 by Tim

Well, that was it. That was our shot. Nintendo had another chance to change their ways, bring a bit of parity to our controllers. Maybe start some sort of industry standard for console game menus here in the west… but nope! They’re going to do their own thing, and all of our accidental backing out […]

EU Book Shipment Update

March 9, 2017 by Tim

And they’re off! The book pallet has been picked up and begun its journey to Germany. It’s expected to take roughly six weeks to reach its destination, but I’ll have a better idea of the timeline in a few weeks. I’ll keep you posted.

Horizon

March 8, 2017 by Tim

Horizon is pretty amazing. And amazingly pretty. I’m not sure I would say it has revolutionized anything… but it does so much really well that it’s hard to find fault with it. Hard, but not impossible. When you have a really well-crafted game like Horizon, especially an open world game, I think it becomes harder […]

Feels, amplified

March 6, 2017 by Tim

I’m not going to pretend I’ve ever been some sort of super macho hardass; when something gets me in the feels, it gets me. Long have I been one to get misty eyed at love stories, or tragedies or what-have-you. I’m talking about when you’re multiple seasons into a show and they drop some big […]

Patron Milestone

March 3, 2017 by Tim

Hey, we’re not too far away from our next milestone on Patron! If we hit the mark, every Patron will get an exclusive Ethan and Lucas one shot each month. That’s on top of the one that $5 Patrons receive! So even if you only pledge $1, if we reach the milestone, your pledge will […]

Update on EU Bookset Orders

February 28, 2017 by Tim

So here’s the latest on the pallet of Ctrl+Alt+Del 1.0 books heading to EU for distribution: The paperwork has been filled out, the freight cost has been paid, I’m now just waiting for the pallet to board the ship. This step took a little longer because the distributor wanted to rebox the sets before sending […]

Ghost Recon

February 27, 2017 by Tim

I dabbled a bit in some Ghost Recon over the weekend. I’ll be honest, me and the game got off on the wrong foot. After launching it, it switched my audio output and then forced itself to default to my secondary display (my drawing apparatus, clearly identified as secondary in Windows). Switching my audio back […]

That Ochoko Shame

February 22, 2017 by Tim

It drives me bananas when I summon someone someone into one of my Souls-y games, only to have them die right off the bat. The feeling is so much worse when it’s me that derps my way out of someone else’s game. Ochoko cups aren’t impossible to farm… Nioh is littered with the graves of other […]

EU Book Orders

February 10, 2017 by Tim

Note: Over half of the books going overseas are now spoken for, fyi. I’ve received enough interest in shipping a pallet of books over to the EU that I believe it’s worth doing. So with that said, let’s get the ball rolling. In the last post I pointed out that shipping one of these heavy […]

Nioh

by Tim

A lot of times when I say “if you love Dark Souls, you’ll love this game”, I have to follow it up with “but it probably won’t change people’s minds if they aren’t fans of that genre.” The first part of that statement holds true for Nioh; if you’re a fan of Dark Souls/Bloodborne, you […]

UK/EU Book Orders Are A Go!

February 6, 2017 by Tim

Note: Just about half of the books going overseas are now spoken for, fyi. I’ve received enough interest in shipping a pallet of books over to the EU that I believe it’s worth doing. So with that said, let’s get the ball rolling. In the last post I pointed out that shipping one of these […]

UK/EU Book Orders Are A Go!

February 3, 2017 by Tim

I’ve received enough interest in shipping a pallet of books over to the EU that I believe it’s worth doing. So with that said, let’s get the ball rolling. In the last post I pointed out that shipping one of these heavy books from the US to the EU costs over $200 (book + shipping), […]
