And only one fatality:

Quote
In preparation for the launch they decided to get some live-action commercials for it, but during the filming the worst possible thing that could happen happened, professional freestyler Matilda Rapaport was caught under snow in an avalanche during filming and later died from the injuries she sustained in the accident.

Reports first came in on July 14 that Rapaport had been rushed to a hospital in Santiago, Chile, after a skiing accident and had to be put in a coma.

An avalanche started while she was skiing down the mountain side alone while being filmed from a helicopter. The damages she sustained from the avalanche and being trapped under the snow for too long, were too severe. Matilda Rapaport died on July 18, only 30 years young.

I'm behind in the reading of books and periodicals, I do boardgaming on occasion, and I'm ignoring my scale models, to say nothing of the tv and movie backlog.

At least, when I'm watching Netflix, I'm usually on the stationary bike.

I also have a wife, dog, and newish house with plenty of things to address.

And then, eventually, there will be the wearable:

Quote
The Pokémon GO Plus is a small device that lets you enjoy Pokémon GO while you're on the move and not looking at your smartphone. The device connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth low energy and notifies you about events in the game—such as the appearance of a Pokémon nearby—using an LED and vibration.

And Nintendo isn't exactly making bank off of this:

Quote
The Japanese video game developer said Wednesday it's delaying the release of Pokemon Go Plus, an accessory for the wildly popular smartphone game. It also posted a net loss of $233 million for the latest quarter.

On Monday, the company's shares plunged after it said that Pokemon Go will have only a "limited" effect on its bottom line.

Nintendo's share price had more than doubled following the release of the hit augmented reality game earlier this month, adding $23 billion to the company's market value. But the stock is now down around 30% from its high last week.

Pokemon Go was actually developed and distributed by a company called Niantic. Both Nintendo (NTDOF) and The Pokemon Company, one of its subsidiaries, have invested in the privately-held Niantic -- but so have other firms including Google.

The Pokemon Go Plus, a separate device that enhances the gaming experience, is another way for Nintendo could profit from the game's runaway success. But it said Wednesday the release has been pushed back from the end of this month to September.

It didn't give a reason for the delay.

The rest of the company's business isn't doing particularly well, according to its earnings statement Wednesday. Sales for the quarter ended June 30 -- before Pokemon Go's release -- slumped 31% on a year earlier, with a particularly steep decline in hardware and software for its Wii U console.

Wife and I watched the first episode.  Aside from feeling bad for Benny, it didn't really grab either of us.

Tomorrow will be wargaming at the monthly boardgame event.  Other than that, nothing comes to mind. Maybe some more SPAZ.

GamingTrend got blocked at work for me. That put a damper on things.

Chrome Remote Desktop to my home machine handles any blocking issues.  ninja

I'll add Arma III Apex to the wishlist, and eventual backlog.  Of course, I haven't started Arma II yet, so...


What exactly is Apex and how is it different from normal Arma III?  Is this an expansion?

Wiki tells me that it's an expansion, has a new map covering 100 sq km, a new campaign, and new vehicles, weapons, and characters.

I finally got to a point in SPAZ where I started racking Yooge ship types.  Really, the best ship types.  Once I was able to missile boat with the Carrier, and could take down Level 3 space stations, things got a bit easier.  The Hammerhead with auto turrets is awesome for paring people down quickly.  I actually managed to complete a few story missions and make some progress. 
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 7/8 edition on: July 09, 2016, 03:00:21 PM
I fired up LEGO Star Wars Complete for a fresh PC install, then spent some time grinding in SPAZ.

Computer hardware games.  Boot drive died yesterday.  New drive installed, Win10 installed, data drive not being seen.  Get to fiddle with it and see if I can get it all back into working order.

There are two more movies coming.  I am patient enough to wait to see what that ends up looking like before pulling the trigger.
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/26/16) on: June 27, 2016, 05:55:42 PM
Likely not anything.  I have plenty of LEGO games in the backlog, have picked up seven games in the Steam sale, and a huge backlog of games.

Finished up Tiny Tina's Keep in BL2.  The last area before the big fight was a slog.  The only reason I kept through it was the extreme distaste I would have had if I had to re-do it all again later.

I have uninstalled all the World of ... and War Thunder.  No more grindy games, at least for a while.  I need to get over my gaming laziness and actually play something with some sense of story progression or definitive end.  I have no idea what that might be at the moment.

Senate approves the draft

Quote
The Senate overwhelmingly passed a $602 billion defense bill Tuesday that included an amendment that would require women to register for the draft -- also known as the selective service -- for the first time in history.

The National Defense Authorization Act passed 85-13, although some Republican senators protested against the inclusion of the provision pertaining to women and the draft.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, slammed the measure last week during a Senate session, calling it "a radical departure" from American history.

"The idea that we should forcibly conscript young girls into combat to my mind makes little or no sense," he said.

But the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, rebuked Cruz's stance, calling including women in the draft "simply fair" now that the Pentagon has opened all military roles to women.

"Every uniform leader of the United States military seemed to have a different opinion from the senator from Texas, whose military background is not extensive," McCain said.

Mow the yard, take the car in for service, probably have to buy new tires and brakes.  Not much gaming on the horizon.  I need to take the machine down and install the BD-ROM that I bought with my birthday money and clean out the inside, as it's been years since I've cracked the case. 

Mow the yard - Failed; strained back and copious rain
Take the car in for service - Failed; ran errands on Saturday, Sunday was prevented due to injury
Computer maintenance - Failed; cleaning the computer requires a dry outdoors to remove dust and debris. 

I did get a few rounds of War Thunder in, however.

Perhaps this is the weekend I clean my desk to get the throttle up for Warthunder.  If not, tankity tank tank.  And perhaps I can convince myself to try the Command:Northern Inferno tutorial again.
