EA Origin Server Outage Reported

EA Origin Server Outage Reported

Yes… there is a problem with EA’s origin server. There is no way to know when it will be back up…but if you are getting Error messages…or “you hav been logged out,” you are not alone. As in millions of players. So…chillax. Do something else and don’t panic. It is likely another DDOS attack…which seems to be part of the new “fun” hackers from Russia have these days. But, hey…just two more weeks and this madness will be over? Maybe…

Halloween D&D Adventure

Halloween D&D Adventure

So for Halloween we are hosting a D&D 5th edition game. 1st step is to create a theme. Halloween! Done! Nope, that’s not enough. So I’d like to make it scary, and also this really is initiatory, so it doesn’t have to be overly complicated. How about find and defeat the evil in the Haunted House.

A New Impossible Coin [Super Mario 64]

A New Impossible Coin [Super Mario 64]

UncommentatedPannen shows that there's yet another impossible coin in the game, located in the huge version of Tiny-Huge Island. Specifically, there's a coin spawner there that's intended to spawn 5 coins in a horizontal line on the ground. However, this coin spawner's located under the ground, causing the most uphill coin to not load properly. In particular, this coin spawns about 49 units below the ground, triggering a failsafe that causes the coin to immediately unload. Currently, there's no known way to collect this coin.

Violence In Games Does Not Cause Real-Life Violence

Violence In Games Does Not Cause Real-Life Violence

Sales projections are still solid for the new title that is going to feature some futuristic space action as opposed to the traditional boots-on-the-ground combat, so it is not easy to tell what the player base’s opinion of Infinite Warfare really is at this point.
