Return to Karazhan Patch 7.1

 

The first patch for Legion will be bringing a lot of memories back. Return to Karazhan will be bringing back one of the most exciting raids from Burning Crusade. Although this will no longer be a 10-man raid, we will get to experience Karazhan as a 5-man extended dungeon much similar to Blackrock Depths. It is interesting that they are going this route because smaller dungeons always have more closely knit groups and in my opinion, it is a more enjoyable interaction. Larger dungeons seem to be slightly hectic especially if you don't talk to anyone else in your group. If you haven't had the opportunity to obtain the mount from the original Karazhan, don't worry, they aren't replacing the original instead there will be new entrance.

 

 

Karazhan will be similar to the Mythic difficulty but slightly harder. It seems to be a full on raid but with just 5 people, the dungeon will be revamped and hopefully we will get a redesign that trumps the visuals from Burning Crusade. There will be 9 bosses for us to defeat (and hopefully a new mount to farm). Return to Karazhan will be release on the PTR servers in the next couple weeks according to Blizzard but we do not have a solid date for release on live servers as of yet. This will be the first patch of the many that Blizzard has in store for Legion and it will be a notable one for them. Legion is suppose to be the longest and most content-packed expansion so far and I can't wait to see what will be coming in the future. 

 

Do you guys enjoying with large groups or smaller groups? Let us know in the comments below!

 

Battlefield 1 Open Beta !

 

The Battlefield 1 Open Beta began on August 31st, keep in mind this is open beta! Everyone can try the game! I just had the opportunity to try it out last night and it was a blast! There are currently tons of people playing right now and it is so quick to find a match. You'll get to try out 2 games modes, Conquest and Rush.  If you aren't familiar with Origin, all you need to do is head over to their website, create an account and download their launcher. Once you have the launcher you can install the open beta. 

 

 

There is currently only one map you can play on right now and that is the Sinai Desert map. It's a fairly open desert map with some cliffs on one side of it. There is a train that runs through the populated area of the map allowing some neat destruction. My favorite pass-time currently is riding down players while on a horse, Game of Thrones style. The only complaint I have is that it takes longer to get on a horse than it does to get in a car, it should definitely be the other way around!

The gameplay is very smooth and as it should be for a AAA game. I haven't noticed any bugs in my 3-4 hours of playing. With my new EVGA GTX 1070 and my i7 4790K, I am getting around 120-130 FPS on ultra settings and 1080p. 

I highly doubt that they will be releasing a second map for us to test on but this map is great. If anyone would like to party up an play, you can add me on Origin. My Origin name is "hudsonrio". The end date for the beta is not currently set in stone, so just try it out while you have the chance. I would recommend everyone try out this game this weekend even if you haven't played a FPS shooter before, the timelime this is set in allows some extraordinary features. 

 

 

Here are the minimum requirements for this beta:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX-6350
  • Processor (Intel): Core i5 6600K
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): nVidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB
  • DirectX: 11.0 Compatible video card or equivalent
  • Online Connection Requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection
  • Hard-drive space: 10GB

The Turing Test

 

The Turing Test is a sci-fi puzzle game set on one of Jupiter's moons, Europa. With intense visuals and a challenging mystery ahead of you, I'm sure this new game will leave you stumped in awe. The game is being published by Square Enix so I'm sure the finish of the game will be of great quality. If you are familiar with games like Portal, this is not too different, you will be playing in first-person as Ava Turing and you will be faced with many challenging obstacles while trying to resolve a dark mystery. 

 

 

Ava Turing, the main character, is an engineer for the International Space Agency and the team stationed at Europa has vanished. It is up to her to unravel the riddles that lie ahead. You will be left hints and puzzles by your missing crew members but who or what are they hiding from? There is vast rabbit hole that needs some diving into here. If you are into space, adventure and puzzles... look no further. Your perfect game has found you.
