    I've decided to start mining Ether. Right now I can get 5$ a day from my Fury. Gonna stick it in an old box and throw it in a closet

    Videogamedunkey made a video that I think summarizes this year's E3 for me pretty well:
    "The first Shadow of Mordor was unanimously crowned the fun version of Assassin's creed, but where was the funny Shrek character?"
    I played the first one and it was pretty fun, and it looks like they've tried to improve on it quite a bit. Orc bros. Yes please.
    Then there's Nintendo doing Nintendo things. I don't even know what they're on about but I'm sure it will at least be interesting

    Finals are done. Finally.
    Let me know which one you want to do, so far I'll take your responses as Luke being for Factorio and Dwwojcik being for Minecraft.

    School is absolutely nuts. I don't know if I ever mentioned what I'm doing these days.
    Boiled down it's mechatronics with co-op and a multi semester capstone project that I'll be working on all summer to finish with a team of 12 other students.
    Good news is that I already have a monster of a job offer that'll be kickass and pays a stupid amount. I'll be able to get a Vive really soon after I start!
    It's been nothing but work work work even on my time off. That said I have a week off at the moment so:
    I'm lovin 0.15 right now and it would be awesome to play with you guys again for as long as I've got the time to!

    So, HTC VIVE?
    Fucking amazing.
    It's got some minor niggles, but they're of the kind you work around.
    Like, you can't use your eyes to look around very well. If it's in the corner of your eye, you need to move your head to look at it.
    But it's so damned cool to just walk around and "touch" things.

    I hate minecraft. I recently got on my last playthrough on my own, super-secret, hidden, near-perfect-but-not-flawless modpack....
     
    and I immediately died because my fishing line caught a swordfish by mistake and it attacked and I fell in the ocean and it killed me.
    The swordfish, not the ocean.
     
    So I thought of quickly going through my base to grab some defense and armour and potions for breathing and.... fuck it. I just reload my savefile. Surely I must have saved last time I played?
     
     
    NOOOOOPE! I got back to a save where my base wasn't even finished.
    Fuck fuck fak fck faaak!

    Alright that's it.
    Ain't nobody topping this.
    In fact you could say.
    That it's
    Number one.
     
    Factorio .15 is coming really soon and looking really good on the performance end, so even those with toasters should be able to join, and my core2duo server should be able to run it well. -> https://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-185
    We've also upgraded our internet to a wired connection. It has a tiny bit less burst upload speed, but on the plus side it has waaaaay better reliability, so no more random drops like when we had that tekkit legends server way back when. I look forward to playing with y'all when it comes out, it's gonna be great. I'll also likely invite some nerds normal attractive people I've met over from Netrunner land, so there'll be more than enough activity to make things interesting.
     
    For those who didn't get the reference in the video:
     
    How's everybody's schooling going? (Where applicable.)
    I've actually started tutoring in my university as a part time gig.

    I ordered a HTC VIVE today (incidentally, I keep typing HTV VICE every bloody time...).

    That's a thing that happened.

    Turns out my personally most common and rattling nightmare is also one of the most realistic; Walking up to my computer only to discover that it's been hijacked for heaven-knows-how-long and is being remotely accessed.
    Factorio 0.15 update is taking longer than I thought, but it looks amazing and is nearly here. Lots of new stuff and tons of optimizations. As soon as it's released I'll put up a server.

    IIRC, the devs off-the-cuff said early February at one point, but I'd be hard pressed to find where I read that again.

    Great way to start off the year: my youtube mixtape, which is exactly on time as promised:
     
     
    I've played it a bit and would love to try multi as well. Would y'all be interested in a persistent Kitty Jail server? Given some patience, I could run it on this spare laptop I have next to me.
    Donald Trump would like to have a word with you.

    Just had a fairly hilarious occurrence in Rome: Total War's Grand Campaign.
    I'm at war with the Greeks, and they'd approached me to broker for peace. The requested a ceasefire, and demanded I gave back Syracuse which I'd taken from them a few turns earlier.
    Not wanting to do that, obviously, I made a counter-offer. A ceasefire, but they give me Thermon. I did that knowing they wouldn't go for it, we'll go another few years of war, I utterly trounce them, et cetera.
    They went for it. Of course, now I have a town that's completely isolated and will likely fall within the year, especially as it's surrounded by quite some troops. But I own Thermon.
    Moral of this story: Do everything you can with as much arrogance as possible. It pays off. (don't listen to that)

    I got a Steam Controller and Steam Link for Christmas.
    I'm honestly impressed by how good they are, the link in particular. On a wired network it's pretty much indistinguishable from playing at my desktop. I mean, no-one is going to be playing pro CSGO on a Link anytime soon, but still, it's consistently adding about ~3ms display lag/ ~1ms added input lag according to the debug stats. Vsync alone is usually worse than this IIRC.
    As far as graphical artifacts, it's basically perfect. The only time I noticed anything at all was when the GPU, (R9 Fury), was pushed to the absolute limit, and even then it was still plenty playable.
    The Steam Controller, well, it's also better than I thought it would be. It's a learning curve, and once in a while it's a tad clunky handling games with no built-in normal controller support, but the controller itself is plenty serviceable, and I'm loving the community profiles. The control-scheme tweaking looks very in-depth, but I haven't needed it so far.
    (Still working on youtube mixtape.)

    My Christmas New Years present to everyone this year is going to be a mixtape. You can use the fire from it to keep warm.
    Is there any type of music anyone specifically wants?

    Also, I've realized something:
    Microsoft powershell can be split up into Microsoft Powers Hell
    iDOOMinati confirmed.
    EDIT: Why am I such a sucker for these games?
     
    I'd buy it instantly but I'm worried I'd just start ditching schoolwork to learn javascript instead.

    Still utter shit! But slightly better. On the personal level.
