Just a few random thoughts this morning as Blaugust winds down – only a few days left.
Star Wars Goodness
Star Wars The Force Awakens has a new video clip out and while it is short, there is always some excitement. I'm so pumped about this film. Actually, I watched the J.J. Abrams Star Trek the other day and thought about how the style he used in that would be reflected in Star Wars – I think it'll work pretty well. Does Finn look comfortable wielding that blue lightsaber? I think he looks a bit worried.
I am starting to worry about my current laptop. I've run into a couple of Blue Screens in the past month and I fear it may be starting to have some actual problems. I probably just need to make sure all the drivers are up-to-date which I haven't done in at least a year. But in fear, as I was recovering from the latest BSOD, I decided to start looking at gaming laptops online. Obviously things have gotten faster, more powerful, and more expensive in the 3 years since I purchased my last PC. If anyone has a recommendation, let me know.
PS4 Screen Capture
I also want to figure out how to capture screen shots and video from any PS4 that I will be getting. This basically is the last deciding factor in me moving forward with purchasing a new Playstation. For my PS3 and XBox360, I've used an AverMedia Game Capture HD for all of my capture needs, but that uses component video and I am pretty sure the PS4 is only HDMI. I'm looking at the AverMedia Live Gamer Portable to see if that will cover what I want, but if anyone has any recommendations, I'll take them into consideration.
Champions Online Downloading…
Brian over at Blue Kae posted recently about creating a new hero in Champions Online and I thought…what the heck? I enjoyed this game and haven't been back there for a while so I think I'll give it another shot. I'm sure it is a bit dated, but I've never been one to play or not play a game based only on its graphics. 1.2 gb patch downloaded and installed and I'll be giving this a run this weekend.
