Shore Leave and Playlist 12/21/15

I’m going to be super busy this week getting ready for a vacation from Christmas day through the the rest of the year. Not much time for gaming and less time for writing about it. So let me just say this:

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, filled with amazing people and doing everything you love doing! Thanks for stopping by here every so often and checking out what I have going on. I’m hoping for more regular content at the start of the new year. I still have a lot to accomplish in Elite: Dangerous, Horizons is out now, I’ve only just scratched the surface Star Citizens 2.0 Alpha, and there are SO MANY other space related games that I want to play and share with you!

I’m also hoping to stream more! I’ve had some great interactions in my last few impromptu streams on Twitch. My schedule makes regular, predictable streaming kind of impossible so be sure to follow me on Twitter to catch when I do go live. I’d love to have you there!

I’m also going to explore YouTube’s streaming platform to see if that’s a thing.

Until next year, Starfighters, stay frosty.

Here’s what my jam last week was.

  • Star Wars Battlefront (PS4)
  • Fallout 4 (PS4)
  • Star Citizen (PC)
  • Space Engineers (PC)

Vacation week is over! It was a really great week. I’m off this Thursday and Friday though.

I finally got the hang of dog fighting in Battlefront and started actually placing in the top 3 for my team. I also got the chance to play with a friend. Battlefront has a partner mechanic. It lets you spawn next to them if you’re playing infantry and they’re highlighted and always visible to you. The game usually just pairs you with someone random but if you have a friend in the match you can specify them as your partner. There’s no VOIP in  game but you can start up a chat party and pow…now you can talk to your wing man. And that makes a WORLD of difference. Someone on your tail you can’t shake? Call the wing man. Otherwise you’ll Porkins all over the place.

Star Citizen Alpha 2.0 released to everyone this weekend! Spent Sunday morning downloading the update. It was pretty big. I’m scared to look and see just how much space this thing is taking up already….and it’s nowhere near done. I only had time to spend an hour or so with it. I checked out the station some and then had to go back through the basic flight tutorial because man I suck. I’ll post more in depth stuff when I get more time with it. But for now it’s looking pretty sweet. I watched a bunch of twitch streamers when the Alpha first released to a limited group. It was buggy but it looked amazing.

I also owe you guys a Space Engineers post….I’m thinking of starting over cause I’m in a pretty hopeless situation and I made it a lot worse over the course of last week.

That’s it for me for now. I have a couple of things I want to write up but I have a good bit of actual work to take care of before the Holidays steal me away.

What are you playing?

Here’s what I played last week:

  • Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator (PC)
  • Elite: Dangerous (PC)
  • Star Wars: Battlefront (PS4)
  • Rocket League (PS4)

 

Gauntlet is free for PS Plus members this month. So if you have a PS4 and a membership, pick it up and add me! We’ll do some dungeoning and shoot the food together. I’m Kameco on PSN.

I’m off all this week! Going to spend as much time as I can playing some stuff. Starting tonight with Space Engineers and I’m hoping to get a whole bunch of stuff done in Fallout 4…so it might be a quiet week here on the blog.

Stay frosty.
