For those of you who don’t follow this website regularly, Direct 2 Netflix is a podcast project I’m working on with a few of my friends where we watch and talk about movies that came out this year and bypassed the theater (or at least were not widely released). As you know, I’ve talked about adding more media content and likely branching outside of the realm of MMOs. The movies we talk about aren’t inherently bad, although most didn’t miss the theaters because they were just that good.
Each new episode is expected to come out on Saturday.
This week we looked at the third movie in the Bad Ass series, Bad Asses on the Bayou starring Danny Trejo, Danny Glover, and John Amos.
Massimiliano Sechi is known around League of Legends as the Handless Gamer, or MacsHG. Sechi, a Sardinian native born with no hands, has managed to not just reach the Diamond rank in League of Legends, he’s managed to outclass countless other League of Legends players by playing with his feet.
The mini-documentary above, created by Razer, showcases how Sechi uses Razer technology to play his favorite games from League to World of Warcraft and Call of Duty. If you have ten minutes to spare, it is definitely worth a look. Echi’s motto of “no excuses” rings especially loud as he passes his driving test.
The folks at H1Z1 have put together a video narrating the multitude of emails to customer support from players banned for cheating. While some try to plead, others feign ignorance or resort to a slurry of obscenities.
Either way, the end result is rather entertaining.
Patch 2.5 is set to be the last to drop before the launch of Final Fantasy XIV’s first expansion, Heavensward, and it will be split into three parts to better distribute the content. If you have ten minutes to spare, take a look at the trailer below to see what is coming in the first update on January 20th.
Part one of Patch 2.5 drops on January 20th with the next part coming in February and part three in March.
Need a good reason to avoid ArcheAge for the time being? Here is one, the game is filled with hackers. Not the kind of hackers that steal your account, the kind that are able to teleport throughout the game, grabbing up land as soon as it becomes available and running trade routes immediately to bring in massive amounts of gold. Bots have dominated ArcheAge since launch, and every day continue to flood the economy with gold farmed through hacks, land automatically purchased through hacks, and trader rewards achieved through hacks. You can see in the above video that there is even a bot to report people for killing other bots.
DC Universe is set to get a makeover with the introduction of UI 2.0, and you can get a sneak peek with the following nine minute video. The new interface is designed around a PDA theme and is looking much sleeker, with various menus consolidated and much easier to navigate. Information is more organized and user friendly, and you can even change the tint of the UI to match your character theme.
(Editor’s note: This article would be a whole lot more helpful with a link to the Livestream. Here it is.)
The zombie sandbox craze continues to live on, just like the zombies that inhabit the worlds. Rigid Studios is a Sweden-based independent developer looking to jump on board with their own spin on the genre, under the title of Lifeless. To show Lifeless to the masses, Rigid Studios has planned a series of Livestream events where you can watch the developers play the game and show what to expect.
Final Fantasy’s 2.3 patch is so massive, it requires an equally beefy eight minute trailer. Those of you with active subscriptions are likely already downloading the patch as I write this, so just watch the trailer anyway.
