If there’s a downside to living in the middle of the city, it’s that fairs just really aren’t a part of my life. But then, with the whole Covid-19 pandemic going on, it’s not like there are many being held this year anyway. In place of their usual mud n’ music happenings, however, the Oregon County Fair In The Clouds has taken the 50-year-old folksy festival online, constructing an endearingly makeshift (and somewhat surreal) virtual arts fair that’s free for everyone, local or not. … [Read more...] about I woke up too early to enjoy the Oregon County Fair In The Clouds

Better yet are abilities which require your role-play involvement, because as we tend to say, the more you put in, the more you get out. If you're an Invoker, a kind of Paladin, you can take yourself off during quiet moments to slip away to an astral plane to speak to higher wisdoms about how you're doing.

The New World servers run on Amazon Web Services, a cutting edge cloud network infrastructure that resembles just one of the advantages that come from being part of one of the biggest companies in the world, and allows the studio to host up to 10,000 players per server.

Evan Lahti: Tribes' desolate tundra may have sold me on the openness of its environments. In 1998, after playing Quake 2 and Doom and other shooters set mostly inside bases and ceilinged facilities for years, Tribes' box conveyed a multiplayer FPS where you could really feel the wind in your face as you jetpacked over hilltops or hopped into flying vehicles that could seat multiple players.

The list of new bugs is expansive, and there are many different variants of the same breed buzzing about your islands - you've been warned. There are four different types of cicadas (Brown, Robust, Evening, and Giant), plus Cicada Shells, which can be found at the base of trees (we'll get to that later). The cicadas' shrill, siren-like sounds are made worse by the almost imperceptible vibrating that they do while resting on trees - insert Blathers' bug shudder here. … [Read more...] about I didn’t play Animal Crossing for a month and I came back to an island infested with gross bugs
