Mp3 Download

A rather super-sized episode, this week as we go back to the year 2009 to answer the question posed by IGN. Is Final Fantasy 7 overrated?

NOTE: For those of you who were waiting for the Youtube version of the podcast, I personally apologize. I'm dealing with some of the slowest Internet ever, right now, so it took forever to get this uploaded. I do have quite a few videos on the horizon from this trip, including a few really good big hauls on the way! I need to start on this week's ep, while I'm here as well, which may just be an all video version with an audio version incoming. Thanks for your patience, and

Spiracy's Big Haul - Building my new Gaming PC

                      

So if you've been wondering why I haven't posted much, this last week, This is the reason.  Last week I received all the pieces to my new gaming rig, so the above video is a vlog of me building said machine, and showing you the process. Seriously, I needed a new machine, due to having to fight Premiere every time i want to edit a video, or watching my laptop force shutdown when I wanted to play PC games, while running OBS simultaneously.  It was a mess.

Now I can edit videos and render then in a fraction of the time it would normally take on my laptop ( A 2 hour vid that would normally take almost 3 hours to render, now only takes 15-20 minutes) And now I have all sorts of ideas for videos. The one phrase that keeps echoing through my head is "Now, you're playing with power" and I wholeheartedly agree.

 I haven't PC gamed since 2007, and it's so damn good to be back! I've already started padding up my Steam account. Hopefully, we can get back to streaming once vacation starts...

This week - A study comes out claiming that video games can cause sexism, but the study has more holes in it than a chain-link fence. Also we cover the art of grandstanding when giving to charity for the sake of virtue, and is the Switch more powerful than the Ipad? Also we talk about the Power Rangers movie and other things.

Boss Plays - Bloodborne: Blood starved BS

                       

So, I have some bad news and some good news.

The Bad:  My laptop that I have been using for streaming and recording gaming footage, is dead. I attempted to take Windows 10 off of the laptop to backdate to Windows 8, and that resulted in some form of catastrophic error that won't allow the computer to even boot. I could fix it, but that laptop was a hand-me-down, and both of my laptops were brand new in 2012.  Needless to say, it's time for an upgrade.

The Good:  My computer parts, according to FedEX shipping calculations, will be here in two days. So my i5 processor, 16gig ram filled, why the hell is this graphics card so expensive computer will be constructed by the beginning of this new week. And I will demonstrate the power of this fully operational battle station by the end of the week.

So in the meantime, enjoy this Let's Play of Bloodborne, and my one-man-war on the Blood Starved Beast.
