Good news! My new PC woes are behind me. The Corsair Vengeance LPX were installed and the PC booted without a fuss — I even activated XMP mode without issue. I finished installing drivers and updates but without a storage drive (my old Western Digital Black 1TB doesn’t fit the case), there’s not much I can do. I guess I could play StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm and the countless other titles in my Steam catalog
I’m also waiting for NVIDIA’s Pascal GPU to make its debut which will really open up the gaming possibilities.
Dailies. That’s not something I thought I would be partaking in but everyday my brother and I put in an hour or so to complete the daily missions in The Division. It’s really unfortunate that Ubisoft aren’t able to maintain The Division’s momentum. Now glitches, repetitive daily missions and inflated crafting requirements have blemished an otherwise strong start.
The Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst closed beta is happening right now. I played through the tutorial and while it wasn’t the consistent performer that I would like, I was impressed with the combat improvements and style. There’s an open world element which I have yet to try but I suspect I’ll be fine with it. I enjoyed the original Mirror’s Edge but I enjoyed it for its style and parkour, not because it was linear affair.
