Here are a couple of short videos highlighting just a few of the silly things that can occur when a Planetside 2 shutdown is imminent. For the record, Part 2 is shorter and funnier.

by on Apr.28, 2013, under PC Gaming Commentary

Back in March, TR were very, VERY bored … so we organised a Flash race. Undoubtedly a lot more exciting than racing ANTs in Planetside 1!

*FIXED* – Steam crashes when game is being backed up

by on Oct.19, 2012, under PC Gaming Commentary

Over the last few months, I’ve been plagued with persistent AppCrash errors when backing up Games within Steam. Checking the event log after the event invariably reveals a generic AppCrash caused by Steam.exe and Steamclient.dll

Given that I live in a Fascist state wherein our ISPs insist on restricting users to monthly download quotas, I’d prefer to store all my Steam games on-site rather then waste my allotment on repeated 5-10Gb game downloads off a Steam content server.

Planetside – “All Tech” Magrider Event Movie

by on Apr.18, 2011, under PC Gaming Commentary

After some persistent prompting from my Planetside outfit, I’ve finally taken the plunge and video-captured one of our recent outfit operations. This film (duration: 3′ 40″) was taken in March 2011 and shows the Knights of the Republic tooling around in Vanu Sovereignty magriders. Area of operations was primarily the north coast of the planet Ishundar between Irkalla and Kusag bases. From memory, we didn’t capture or lose either base however it was still quite an epic fight.
