    Re: Assassin's Creed: Origins Review on PC


    Granted that my dual 900-series GPU is only able to maintain ~35 FPS on average with just a couple of 1-frame dips and almost no spikes, my CPU never tops out and barely goes over 30% - though it will bottom out to less than 5% at times. My CPU is over 4 years old, but it is an i7. I read complaints from new i5 users suffering from 100% topping out. So, it might be the i7 architecture being the key factor, or the 1.2.0 patch fixed things.


    My GPUs are set to slow down over pushing themselves harder. (It gets too noisy if they work too hard.) So, that might be a factor in FPS. I'm running at Ultra settings (top settings for everything).


    I don't know if this is due to the 1.2.0 patch that came out yesterday, but the gameplay is not all over the place as I read from reviews. It is rather consistent. 1.2.0 is supposed to increase stability. I guess it has. It also has the option to turn off those HUD things that people were complaining about - health bars, floating numbers, etc.


    It is different from the previous ACs, but then, AC4 was different from AC3. So, I'm okay with not-more-of-the-same.


    The beginning is a bit confusing. It skips 5 years to go from "Hi there!" to "I'm gonna kill everyone." So, be ready to start off confused as to what's going on.


    Would recommend - at least if you have an i7 and a beefy video card. (Dunno if the patch improved i5 performance any.)


    UPlay is as ornery as ever. Once it's going, it's fine. Getting it going if you don't use an admin account as your primary PC account is a thing. (My primary account is not an admin.)

    You've played pen-and-paper role-playing games, and now, you fancy yourself a pen-and-paper game master (or called a "dungeon master" in D&D)... but you don't know what to do?


    Step 1. Go get advice. You can search easily enough and I recommend it, but here's one. It's brief, though. I recommend looking for additional info. We have some DMs among the community, too. Go full on zombie and pick some brains.


    Step 2. Try out the advice. Everyone's gotta start somewhere, and it's best to not just fumble around completely in the dark.


    Step 3. Tweak your style. Learn. Gotta break some omelettes to make some eggs... or something. Keep at it.


    Step 4. Profit. Enjoy.


    Simple? Maybe. Keep at it, and it will be.


    Worth it? Yup.

  • Extra Life 2017 Final Countdown

    The day has finally come. *Extra Life 2017!!*


    A lot of work from a group of very talented people will finally be shown to the World. But the event is so much more than just a production. I can't thank everyone enough for helping fund this cause I have grown to care so much for. 


    While I want to show and tell you everything, some things are worth waiting for and this is one of them. Here is what I can fill you in for now. 


    Streaming - YouTube/Site/App/Twitch/Facebook (YouTube Rooster Teeth and TheKnow) Youtube on RT and site will also have a mutlicam feature to switch between main feed and BTS feed (BTS will include PiP of main feed as well so you dont miss anything)


    Archiving/Recording -

    YouTube won't post 24 hour stream and twitch will only keep for a few days after. We are recording a low res version good for the web. We will check file size and where to post. Details most likely after stream event. I hear everyone wanting the recording to watch again - we will do what we can. 


    Social

    Best way to contact is #rtextralife. Working to make YT and Twitch chat accessible to all as well as a quick way to information. If you need to reach Broadcast - we will do our best to read #RTbroadcast 


    We are working with new software so names and donations will be worked on midstream hoping to find our solution. So do your worst to try and break our system (please play nice

  • Sneak Peek into Extra Life 2017

    Would you believe Extra Life 2017 still has some kinks to work on. We are wanting to make this the best extra life streaming experience you have had and share it with more people. Here is just a sneak at some items we are working toward for this Extra Life.


    • Viewing it in more places with more people. We are looking to stream to Youtube, Twitch, RT site/app, Facebook* (720p HD feed only)*
    •  BTS Feed for Multi-cams on YouTube. This feed will most likely include program audio and a PiP of the program feed with a BTS camera of our choice. Option for the RT site may be available after further testing (Multi-cam will be available on RT web site as we are looking to embed YouTube on the Extra Life page)
    •  LOUD NOISES! This still needs testing for compatibility, but we are looking to make LEET donations more present with on screen graphics that pop up and our favorite siren is making a return. Depending on Technical Director the quick cutting camera will return as well.
    • On Screen updates/counters. Items like wheel counts, URL updates, Upcoming events, Current Stretch goals. These will be updated when they are available or when needed. With all this information on screen, we hope to not pull attention away from the stream, but rather make sure everyone is informed. If this for any reason gets too crowded or too much, we may start limiting what appears on screen at a given time.
    • GAMEZ - Like....SO MANY GAMES. We are looking to have so many games playing during the event with 9 gaming stations. While a lot of the attention from the event will be main stage, we are looking to keep with Extra Life motto and play games for 24 hours.

    That's all I have to share with you at the moment, but I still have some tricks up my sleeves. I hope you are excited with the upcoming Extra Life as much as I am. Let me know what you are looking forward to the most or what you hope to see.
