Overwatch: my thoughts

So Overwatch is the new big game from Blizzard the first title they've produced that wasn't a wow or starcraft spin off for some huge number of years, too busy counting their piles of money I guess.

It's terrific fun.

I suppose I should qualify that a bit :)

This month I have been mostly playing

So thought I would go over some things I've been enjoying of late

Hitman: World of Assassinations
Latest version of the hitman franchise and now episodic with new "episodes" coming monthly which wasn't well communicated as the first time I played it I got to the end of the first playable area the paris fashion show and went "is that it where the hell is the rest of the game?"

The current panic on drones near airports

There has been a spate of incidents where the various news outlets have someone flying a drone (insert stock picture of a dji phantom 2 here) within feet of an aircraft!

Unless they've suddenly stopped making aircraft out of aircraft grade aluminium and decided to start using paper a drone is not going to bring down a jet airliner. If it hits its props will snap and it will plummet out of the sky.

Great Games I've Played Recently

There have been a lot of great games popping up recently some big names others not so much and with a load more on the horizon I thought I'd do a little roundup before I forget.

Rebel Galaxy:
I think of this as Firefly the game it's basically redneck elite. You fly about a colourful space universe trading mining shooting(either good/milita or bad/pirates) etc your way along upgrading your ship with bigger and better equipment then bigger and better ships all to a cowboy rock soundtrack.

PAX Prime Approaching

Tomorrow evening I fly out to Seattle for Pax Prime and I'm really looking forward to it. Last year byrnie and myself attended PAX prime then flew to newzealand which was astonishingly tiring PAX by itself can be quite overwhelming add 13hr flight and crossing the dateline so you lose a day and it's not fun. We has planned for it and spent our first day in Auckland draining countless cups of coffee and generally looking bewildered at the time shift.
