In Other News – 22 January 2016

Man oh man, it is HAWT today. Ordinarily, I love the summer climate, but this year has been a proper scorcher. To combat the heat, I’ve been stripping myself down to the bare essentials: Thinner latex rubber on my daily Batman costume, a cowl with an adjustable neck and a pleather cape instead of the usual high-grade leather.

Strangely, it’s not having the desired effect, and merely “seals in the flavour” of an entire day’s work. Might have to look at equipping my prototype Bat-thong for this dastardly heat-wave.

In Other News: Amazing Black Desert characters, Ubisoft teams up with Frodo, Europe will Hyrule us all and another Star Wars link.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was busy replacing my shoelaces with earphones so that my shoes could tie themselves.

        True, but that choice only serves to keep the constitution safe.

          The story is CRAAAAAAAAAZY. I was reading the manga but decided to stop. Will wait for the anime instead.

            I actually don’t get the hype for Attack on Titan tbh. The first season was good, but didn’t really grab me and go “WATCH ME NAO”. Like, I have no desire to see when the 2nd season comes out – I’ll probably watch it in like a year or so when I get bored. XD

    Does anyone know why Black Desert Online isn’t available in South Africa?

      Here’s a hint from your question: “South Africa”

        Every European, NA and Australasia territory has access. It’s an MMO. Like every other one available in the “western” world. Except, unlike all of those, we don’t have access. It’s the first one I’ve seen to do this.

          Star Wars: The Old Republic also not available;May just have to do with having a lower latency tolerance, so not keen on deploying in areas without servers.

            Was that at launch? I’ve played SW:TOR quite a bit and I don’t use VPN’s or anything. Anyway, yeah I’ve looked at the forums, it seems it about licensing, not latency. No clear answer as to why, but the gist is that they haven’t licensed the game for Africa, Asia or South America.

            Very interesting. Yeah, at launch TOR wasn’t available here at all.

            Also, complete side note: the new site design is epic. 😀
