Ace Combat 2 (PSX)

Image
Developer:Namco|Release Date:1997|Systems:PlayStationThis week on Super Adventures, I'm playing Ace Combat 2: the classic PlayStation dogfight 'em up by the people who've watched Top Gun.

It was made by the legendary developer/publisher Namco, who started creating their own video games in 1978 and didn't stop until 2005, when some mad businessmen fused them with Bandai Games to create a hybrid creature called Bandai Namco. Though the interesting thing about Namco, is that they were responsible for games like Pac-Man, Galaga, Time Crisis, Ridge Racer, Splatterhouse, Soulcalibur, Tekken, Klonoa and Katamari Damacy, and I somehow haven't covered a single one of them yet. I wrote about Tales of Symphonia by Namco Tales Studio (formerly known as Wolf Team), but I think this is actually the first proper Namco-developed game on Super Adventures!

Here's another fact for you: for some reason the first game was renamed Air Combat when it was released in the West, even tho…

About This Game :
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (stylized as Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII) is an upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. It is scheduled to be released worldwide on October 12, 2018, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is a sequel to the 2015 game Call of Duty: Black Ops III and will be the fifth entry in the Black Ops subseries as well as the 15th main installment in the Call of Duty series overall. Black Ops 4 is the first Call of Duty title without a traditional single-player campaign mode. Instead, it features the Solo Missions mode, which focuses on the backstories of the game's multiplayer characters, known as "Specialists". The missions take place between Black Ops II and III chronologically. Some of the Specialists also carried over from Black Ops III. The multiplayer mode is the first in the series to not feature automatic health regeneratio…

DE: A Different Take On Wyches

Image
Maybe I have been going after this all wrong.  I've been thinking to myself for a while now:  How do I get Wyches into my army while still being effective.  Well, maybe with Succubi down to 54 points with an Agonizer, it's time to start bringing more HQs, in general, to make up for this loss?  What about Wyches?  Should I go big or go small with them?  If I go big with them, they certainly take advantage of their Obsession bonuses and Combat Drugs more, but they lose out on their ability to be easily transported by Raiders.  I feel that's a big loss because you need something that can reposition them when they need to around the battlefield without exposing them to enemy fire.

The more I think about it, the more I want to try MSU Wyches instead of running larger units of them.  My reasoning is this:
What do they really gain after they pass their min units really?  There's definitely more bodies to soak up during Overwatch, but that's about it.  It's only when the…

Toy Soldiers, Part 2: Gaslands

Image
Gaslands is another in Osprey Publishing's line of miniatures rule books that exist on their own, without a particular line of miniatures or accessories to go with them. In this case, the game is about post-apocalyptic vehicle combat, so naturally it is designed to be played with Matchbox cars.

The game uses a template-based system for movement (similar to X-Wing) and a rather ingenious way to simulate speed, with cars in higher gear getting to move more often in a turn. The rules are simple and straightforward, aided by an over-arching "rule of carnage" that states that if any rule is unclear or open to multiple interpretations, always go with the option that does the most damage.

The simple rules make it a fast-paced game, which is what you want from a game about speeding cars. Each round is split up into "gear phases" in which cars moving at that gear or higher get to move and then attack (either by ramming or shooting). Going faster gets your vehicle more cha…

Building My New Gaming Rig

Image
So this is about a month late, but I wanted to document the awesomeness of building my new PC with my oldest daughter.

I got sick of waiting for the Ryzen 3000 series to launch, which as it turns out with a month of hindsight, wont' be happening till July 2019, meaning my build back in late April was a good idea since I was having a really hard time putting off a new build then.

Because price drops occurred, I managed to get an incredible deal on a Ryzen 5 1600 CPU. It's older, but I paid effectively $50 for it because AMD dropped the price to $120 MSRP, Microcenter (which is about 1 hour away from where I live) had a sale where it was $80 if you bought it in store, and they had a second deal that gives you $30 off the motherboard when you purchase a motherboard and compatible CPU together. 


As such my final specs are:
Ryzen 5 1600 16Gb DDR4 3200 RAM GeForce GTX 1660 Ti AData M.2 1Tb SSD Corsair lighting node pro controller, ML120 LED fans, and LED light strips Thermaltake Core V21 C…
