My first Gaming PC build

PC BuildSo, over the weekend I finally managed to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, build my own gaming PC. I want to take you through how I found the experience  of a PC build as a noob and what I learnt but first it’s probably useful to give some background as to what made me, traditionally a console gamer, desire to cross over to the PC platform and more importantly do my own PC build. It’s no secret that I’ve slowly been drifting away from console gaming over the last year or so. The current Xbox One and PlayStation 4 just don’t do it for me. I’ve been a console gamer since I was 3 or 4 starting out with a NES that I got for Christmas. Continue reading My first Gaming PC build

Elite Dangerous: A Tale of a Space Explorer

elite dangerous whiteI have been playing Elite Dangerous for what feels like just over a year at this point. Every night that I jump on to play, I enjoy partying up with friends who have played the game as far back as its first iteration in 1984, who have tales of first discoveries, their month-long adventures into the black, and stories from amongst the community.

Where did it come from?! Continue reading We’ve already had enough of this Trash Dove

A rant about the state of digital stores

For years now Steam has been top dog when it comes to gaming platforms and in particular its store had praise heaped upon it. Self proclaimed citizens of the “master race” would look down upon mere console mortals and boast about the superiority of the service and its store front. Console digital stores meanwhile varied from being over priced to unforgiving when a refund was requested and we could only look over at Steam with adorning eyes. Times however have changed on both sides of the divide and it’s definitely not a positive change. Digital stores are a mess and the industry leaders need to up their game and sort them out.
