Always loved his drawings/art from early warcraft rts dos game manuals all the way through wow,etc. I think he voiced more than thrall in wow also. He has a distinctive voice.

Nope, I wasn't into this stuff at all until last month when I decided to do an electronics project to start learning. I built it and then wanted a new thing to work on and did the Gameboy backlight mod...

Btw, your co-worker will be using retropie if he hasn't found it already. It's the best emulator for raspberry pi's and is what is used in the pigrrl2 I linked.

On a semi-related note, if you have an old Gameboy (DMG-01), i.e. the first one, or a Gameboy pocket (MGB), there is a kickass backlighting mod you can do that makes it look awesome. Here's what mine looks like after buying a $15 kit online and installing it. For more info just google Gameboy bivert mod or backlight mod. You'll need to solder but it's not that hard; this was my first soldering job.

That same coworker of mine did his in blue. Something about rotating it? Sometimes he gets so technical it goes over my head...


Yeah the backlight comes with polarization film that when rotated 90 degrees makes the lcd inverted. The bivert chip also inverts the display so with both chip and film you have a nice new contrasted screen.

It's obvious but expect losers in competitive to leave a lot more often on the PTR, because no consequences.

But anyway, Blizzard really changed alot so it's quite jarring playing on the PTR.

Arma3 battle royale is fun to watch on twitch, atleast good players like ExecCs. A nice break from Overwatch.

It clearly says "SECURITY CLASSIFICATION: CONFIDENTIAL"

Blizzard has nothing to worry about though as this was not intentional so they won't be prosecuted Wiseguy

That's crazy listening to Juno arrive at Jupiter. Sounds like something from old 50's flying saucer flicks. That's pretty amazeballs.

Yeah so cool. I'm currently watching the news conference from this morning.

Didn't buy much this sale. Some DLC for Civ 5 for .82 for completion's sake and aseprite that I may use sometime for messing around with making sprites

I'm still playing Overwatch too much but may buy Doom in the Winter sale I guess.

2. Re: Overwatch Competitive Fix Coming Jun 30, 2016, 23:20 Shok
 
Well they said all along they wanted to get competitive mode out and allow people to play even if it was rough around the edges. I've played some of my best games in competitive...losing or winning by a hair but at least evenly matched with other good players. And a lot less whining compared to quick play but it does depend on how bad one team steamrolls another, when that happens.

Not that I am defending Tony Robbins but the media is blowing this out of proportion. 5 of 7000 people were injured and it was caused by a few morons with cell phones taking selfies and slowing down the people who were burnt.

The mystery hero brawl game mode should be available all the time. This is the one that randomly selects your character at start and when you die. It's great for forcing people to learn more than just 4-5 characters. It's unbalanced but still fun for learning the game.

Stellaris is a whole 10% off???

Guess I'll wait for the Winter sale or the eventual sale when Paradox has a million DLC's so the base game costs next to nothing.

I definitely don't regret buying Overwatch but the team consistency on quick play is really annoying. And people just won't switch to a counter when your team needs it. I think they should have the mystery hero brawl option all the time since it is the best mode to force people to play more than the same 2-3 heroes.

Anyway, add me in game, my nick is MindCrime, and battle tag is MindCrime#1906
