Never see anyone on the open seas in Atlas (PVE) and then...

Glad that one of us was paying attention but I was surprised that it was me.

Match your room lighting to your game lighting

Philips Hue box makes smart lights flash along with anything on your TV

    The latest addition to the Philips Hue smart light system is a small black box that syncs a room full of lights with whatever’s happening on your TV. Games, movies, streaming media, or anything else you’re watching can pass through the box, which will perpetually adjust the color and brightness of your lights to match, theoretically creating a more immersive experience.

The Verge has more details.

How hard can one of these be to hook up... left HDMI goes here... right one goes here... 4K? HDR? WTF? Graybush!

Gears 5 now playable for Game Pass Ultimate subscribers

Other plebs will have to wait until September 10th

So yesterday Coxxorz texted me to say that once of his coworkers mentioned that Gears of War 5 was out tomorrow and that he (Coxxorz) may have to call in sick.

Then he sent a follow up text that he could only find September 10th as the official launch date.

I then told him about the early access for Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Following up by letting him know I had already pre-downloaded it and with his reminder was all prepared to play tomorrow!

Very little of his response made it through my phone's profanity filter...

J.H. Putman, Rolly C's Middle School is closing for good

It stayed open for Rolly's Cohort to finish and his Grade Eight, of 2019, will be the last to graduate.

Well here goes nothing...

I am entertained by the idea of returning from Greece (in real life) so that I can return to Greece (virtually).

Of course, tomorrow is technically an all day travel day so anything may still happen

After three separate flights to get back to Ottawa it is possible that I won't even manage to turn on my Xbox, let alone install Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

More than a couple of days but playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey is getting closer

More than a couple, less than several, equal to a few.
