    17776 - The Future of Football

    So, SB Nation is running something... special. https://www.sbnation.com/a/17776-football/ I'm not sure I can explain it, but it's bizzare and amazing and the kind of thing it might be difficult to do if not impossible off the web.

    [Where I Play] Black Desert Online

    I'm experimenting with Streaming, got a cam, configuring OBS, and working to get all my audio split out so I can avoid broadcasting every little thing, and figured that this would be a good candidate to stream a bit during the short period I have Early Access (starting Tuesday). So, I figure I...

    Tales of Symphonia on Steam, terrible port fixed in 22 minutes in programmer's spare time

    So, Tales of Symphonia got a PC port, finally, of the PS3 version. The port is locked at 720p, slow to load, has menu transition delays, and crashes quite a bit. Peter "Durante" Thoman, of GeDoSaTo fame, wrote an article on how bad it is and why it's unacceptable, and then decided to fix it...

    [KS] Pathologic Remake on KS

    So, some people may be aware of the cult classic game from Ice Pick Lodge, Pathologic. It's an open world survival game perhaps most notable for lying to the player or withholding information - across three playthroughs, it all becomes clearer, but events happen in each path through the game...

    [5e] Revamping the Champion

    So, the fighter subclasses are a bit underwhelming. They're not terrible, and the base fighter is okay, but I'd like to perk them up a bit. I decided to start with the Champion, because it's the lightest and easiest. Here's what I've got so far: Improved Critical: Replace with Improved Style...

    And dear lord are the notes long - http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/12671560/ Looks like my bell spamming monk is substantially nerfed, but I should be able to make up the damage using exploding palm, and I should have plenty of spirit to spend too.

    [Warmahordes] Faction question and color scheme inquiry

    So, I have a small Cryx force, which I find amusing, and I'm looking to branch out a bit. I keep looking at Legion of Everblight, as I like the idea of the beast packs eating the enemy, but I also get the impression that they play fairly similarly to Cryx. Also, I really like the look of...
