Some Time with Wrecking Ball

I got bored with regular Overwatch and decided to finally download the PTR. I wanted to get a feel for the newest (and still unreleased) character, Wrecking Ball. Now, I’ve still only played a single match. It was hilarious and fun, and brings a new mobility to the tank class. I like him, but I’ll have to relearn how to play the tank class with this guy. Movement takes some getting used to and he’s a little squishy, but he can roll away from most encounters. This is the POTG from the first match.

Small disclaimer, I was messing around in a custom match. This is a against bots, so take this with a grain of salt.

 

Yeah, I like him.

One Punch Man

Recently, I decided to drop DirecTV (in 2 years my bill was never the same, among other billing issues) in favor of just streaming shows. As such, switching to Hulu opened up a large collection of available anime shows.

One Punch Man, which I had seen making rounds on Reddit in the form of gifs and YouTube clips. While only Season 1 is out, Season 2 has been confirmed and will be making a comeback with VizMedia. Overall, I binged it in one night. It was awesome. It was, naturally, the subbed version. Basically, a nobody takes 3 years to train using a regimen of 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats, and running 10 kilometers every day to become this invincible man that is trying to become a famous hero. Here’s a short clip.

My next anime is My Hero Academia, which I’ll be making a separate post for once I’ve finished the available seasons.

Nvidia Quietly Launches the GeForce GTX 1050

For gamers on a budget, Nvidia quietly added the 3GB GeForce GTX 1050 on its website.

The 3GB version should help gamers handle modern games. It only packs a 96-bit bus, down from 128-bit bus on its siblings, bring its bandwidth down to 84GBps (112GBps on the others.) Nvidia upped the clock speeds, allowing overclocking to 1,518 MHz. For reference, the GTX 1050 can overclock to 1,455 MHz and the GTX1050 Ti can overclock to 1,392 MHz. Due this, you should see a 10% increase over the GTX 1050.

While not yet available, we should see them in early June after Computex, the price will likely sit between the GTX 1050 ($140) and the GTX 1050 Ti ($200.) It will only be offered Nvidia partners, EVGA, Zotac, and Asus.

Magnet Collisions are Awesome

Stumbled on this video a few minutes ago. Extremely satisfying to watch, and definitely one of those things that make you wonder. I dont have too much to say, other than enjoy this video while I go look up stuff about magnets.

Get Destiny 2 for $12 with Humble Bundle Deal

Destiny 2 just received it’s Warmind DLC this past week, so I figured now would be a good time to mention that Humble Bundle is offering Destiny 2 if you subscribe to the June 2018 Humble Bundle.

The monthly subscription is $12/month, which will include a code instantly to play Destiny 2 while you wait for June 1st to roll around. You’ll get 6 other games on June 1st as well, which will be announced on June 1st.

I’ve put some hours in to the Destiny 2 campaign since grabbing my code, and the gameplay is nice. It has some differences from the original game, most particularly in the powers area. It takes a while for even the melee to recharge, but this is at a low level and it does get faster as you level up. Then throw on some gear with Recovery stats and it’ll be faster but overall is still slower to recharge when compared to D1.

You can still grab the Destiny 2 season pass for $35, or purchase them separately at $20 a piece. You’ll only save $5, but $5 is $5.

Here’s some Breaker Panel Porn (SFW)

I’m an electrician, love my job. The high point is working in a fresh panel, and putting in some time making it look neat. Here’s some of the more recent stuff I’ve done. If you don’t know what you’re looking at, it’s ok. I’ve got this.

I’ve got other panels posted on my Instagram, which I haven’t linked yet. I’ll get around to it eventually.
