Civilization VI is amazing

Just wanted to write a quick update for the blog and talk about Civilization VI. I don’t think I mentioned it in my typical day post, but from time to time I enjoy playing video games on my desktop at home. I recently picked up Civilization VI from a sale over the holiday and it has been nothing short of fantastic. I should also note that I haven’t played Civilization, or any PC game recently for that matter, in a long long time. The last Civ I played was probably Civ IV, so I skipped the 5th entry. A lot has changed in this game. It looks fantastic, for one. It also runs really well on my laptop, and I always have to appreciate developers that put in the work to optimize their games for those that don’t have bulky $2000 gaming computers. I have...

Civilization VI: Rise and Fall Expansion Hype!

Civilization VI: Rise and Fall Expansion Hype!

I wanted to update the blog on my gaming-related news. I am finally getting into the Rise and Fall expansion for Civilization VI. I have been playing the game on and off since that post in December because of my work and just being really busy. But now I finally purchased the expansion and look forward to playing it. I’ve embedded the announcement trailer they posted because it is habit for me to watch trailers of games right before I play them. It helps keep the hype fresh.

Are gaming PCs different from gaming laptops?

The demand for gaming PCs keeps on increasing and the main reason behind this phenomenon is because they typically have better performance than gaming consoles. A gaming PC is much better than a console because its specifications are better, they are able to provide higher end graphics and the ultra mode options work well. The burning question is whether or not gaming PCs are any different from gaming laptops? Basically, these are good enough to play awesome games but the difference is with resolutions, screen sizes, and upgrade options. If you want to spend money on PC and upgrade the parts then it is possible but a gaming laptop is packed tight and upgrading RAM is also hard, so there are not that many options when you confide yourself into a laptop. This is...

What is the deal with integrated graphics?

What is the deal with integrated graphics?

This might come off as a rant-like post. Maybe it is, who knows. It’s my blog, who cares. Regardless, I’ve seen a lot of posts out online that complain about integrated graphics like it’s some sort of sin to use. You know what people, sometimes people cannot afford a graphics card. That’s just the gist of it. Plain and simple. Some people simply cannot afford the high tech. So you guys are kind of just making fun of those guys, just because they can’t afford what you can. I say this because I was in that situation once. Remember my start in sound engineering? I was just a poor little college kid. I didn’t even buy my MD-2000 keyboard. It was given to me as a gift. I couldn’t afford it at the time. It took me 6 months of...
