Anyone seen this new Early Access game on Steam called SkaterXL?
It's literally bare bones at the minute, with only 1 map which is pretty empty, however the modding community have really taken to this game.

If anyone is a skater or used to skate, I would highly recommend this game, as it's not only realistic, but the community are really, really involved.

This video is about 2 days after release on the basic default map. If you want to see some of the excellent modded maps, just check out the rest of Nightspeeds videos on youtube. =]

Nice to see EA breaking everything. Again.

The release of the Anthem demo has caused their servers to have a massive meltdown. Great way for EA to start 2019.

ARK: Survival Evolved pumping out a 14.3GB update. Now that's an update lads.


1.) 09 Nov 2018 15:48:41
And a further 12.8 GB update holy cow.

{Ed001's Note - that is bigger than most games in total.}

2.) 10 Nov 2018 08:22:31
Indeed, 27.1GB worth of updates, never seen an update that big before, it was a 2 part content patch for the new DLC Extinction.

{Ed001's Note - I hate huge patches they take so long to download it is frustrating. It would be nice if someone would actually release a finished game instead of a beta these days. Then we could actually play the game straight away instead of having to download patches from the beginning!}

3.) 11 Nov 2018 02:19:21
I agree for the most part Ed, but with some games like ARK, they were actually finished on release. They just decided to add more such as the Abberration DLC(new map, new creatures, new weapons and mechanics) in 2017 and the Extinction DLC with these latest patches.

{Ed001's Note - I wasn't meaning it to refer to ARK as such, just in general, it annoys me paying such a huge amount of money for unfinished work.}

4.) 11 Nov 2018 03:56:37
Yeah most games will be released with the intention of finishing with DLC.
I feel the exact same way about Microtransactions and most annual release games.

{Ed001's Note - until people stop paying for them though they will never end. They are even creeping into other games, giving you extra add ons you can buy through microtransactions. It is annoying.}

Lol fallout 76 just launched with a 51gb day 1 patch

{Ed001's Note - holy! That is a huge patch.}

6.) 16 Nov 2018 07:26:54
Was it really that broken on release?!

{Ed001's Note - either that or they just forgot to put anything on the disc...}

Tragic what has happened at the gaming event in Florida. 4 people fatally wounded and 11 more injured in a shooting.

Anyone played Jurassic World Evolution?

When I heard about this the inner child in me leapt for joy at the thought of building my very own Dinosaur park!

It's actually pretty fun, needs some tweaks and fixes, but it looks like this game is going to be supported well by the devs at Frontier, so that's very pleasing to hear!


{Ed001's Note - I like theme park games, the original theme park is a classic. I will have to take a look at this.}

1.) 20 Jun 2018 00:09:08
Have you played Planet Coaster Ed? That too is made by Frontier and is exceptionally well made, aside from the UI which is a real let down D:

{Ed001's Note - I haven't played that. I have looked at it a few times and thought about trying it. I am still not sure now you have said about the UI!}

2.) 20 Jun 2018 19:36:17
The UI was just a personal thing Ed, I just don't find it very efficient and it's a bit problematic if you try and rescale it.
If you like builder games it's 100% worth getting. The Workshop creations on Steam are sensational.

{Ed001's Note - I will have a look, it must be cheap by now.}

3.) 20 Jun 2018 19:38:12
But back onto JWE, it's a solid game and they're adding more content + patching some issue's on the 22nd. There are also plans to release further DLC's which are rumoured to contain Marine Reptiles and Pterosaurs.

{Ed001's Note - it does sound like a fun game that.}

4.) 20 Jun 2018 23:06:02
I highly recommend searching on for a cheap CD Key, I buy all my games from there as well as but not so much since finding IG, you usually get around 20%-40% off from IG.

{Ed001's Note - I will take a look at there when I have some money.}

One other thing I should have mentioned before is the cooling pads. A friend of mine uses one and highly recommends them.

They are a pad which your laptop sits on, that has fans built into it. All you need to do is plug it in via a usb port on your laptop.

SSHD's are pretty good, they cut down on load times a little bit as they have a specific sized cache dedicated to SSD, as well as a large HDD storage area. It's pretty clever and quite efficient.

HaizanMSS, they've just done a few shady things in the past with their hardware. They used to cheap out on some components like the power supply and memory. The power supply for example would be "just" powerful enough to run the system, but would be some off-brand garbage that would likely fail shortly after the warranty.
Memory would be the lowest frequency the motherboard could handle.
The case fans would be cheap and have strange adapters so they couldn't be replaced.

I don't know if that is still the case, as this was around 2006 maybe? But it was enough for me to never ever buy one.

Agreed Ed007, I still seek advice from the overclockers forums because you can never be too sure. A lot of the component review sites are bias in some way or another, so relying on personal testimonies from PC enthusiasts is more beneficial.
£1500 sounds a bit much for a rig just to stream. But then again I don't stream, so I wouldn't really know.


{Ed007's Note - If I'm buying anything electronic I ask Ed001 for advice, from laptops to phones and tablets and he's never let me down yet - the Samsung tablet he recommended when we met up in Birmingham about 6 years ago is still running well enough for what I want.
I think the £1500 prices are more for if you want to play games on the PC, which I don't but I wonder how many people buy (or are 'conned' into buying) a PC that they don't actually need?}

HaizanMSS, if you're looking for something to game on, I would stick with a desktop. Laptops have improved significantly in the last 5-10 years, but they're still years behind desktops and any failures with components, require you to buy a whole new laptop. Desktops also have the advantage of being fully customisable(unless you buy a Dell - DON'T BUY ONE), they have advanced cooling features which can prolong component lifespans and they're far more powerful.
Desktops are also attainable over a period of time, you can buy each component seperately when you're finances allow, this increases your budget overall.
For example I spent £1400 on my desktop over a period of 4 months. I purchased different components at different times and now I have a seriously powerful rig.

If you require portability for traveling then ignore what I've said, except one thing. Stay away from MSI, as from personal experience, their components fail regularly as in all 4 of my own MSI components failed over the years.

Yes Ed, it is terrible. Welcome to modern video gaming.


{Ed001's Note - oh you sound like an old man now!!}
