Wombat Servers - Highly Recommended

Posted by Valour - 16 Dec 2016 09:39 AM



Whether you are an individual looking for your own servers, or a community, I cannot recommend Wombat Servers highly enough.   Their service is professional, fast and efficient and they get things done.   They resolve issues quickly and pay attention to their customers.


Prices are very good, but that doesn't mean the services are cheap, they are anything but!


If you need a game server for your game, check out Wombat Servers, you will not be disappointed!


Thanks to Javed and the team for their assistance recently with an important issue.   I won't forget!

Arma 3 Clean Sweep

Posted by Valour - 16 Dec 2016 07:07 AM




There have been a couple of updates recently, and this is the one of note.  BI claimed to have fixed bugs instead of developing more 'content', which we can only assume refers to 'content' like rocks, trees and other useless crap that no one in the community ever asked for.


A performance boost is the reported result, but as we know, in spite of BI's genuine desire to improve the game, we all know when they fix one thing, they break many more.   Full details here.


The devbranch has also released a 64 bit version, but not for the standard user executables at this stage.   We'll be waiting for that before playing with dev versions.

BF1 Update - Mid December

Posted by Valour - 13 Dec 2016 06:51 AM

If you can stand to wade through some of the really boring bits, here is important update information for the next BF1 patch.  Seems Dice have listened to the community about some things (shotguns in particular) but have had a brain snap on others (the cross bow grenade launcher - yes you read that correctly - still trying to appeal to the COD fanboys).


Standard Rifles feature is nice, if enabled (rented servers only, not official Dice servers) all classes can have standard issue rifles, no scopes, and if you turn off elite classes, all standard classes can use a rifle (or you can turn off shotguns and SMG completely and have a more authentic feel).

Day of Infamy

Posted by Valour - 19 Oct 2016 08:00 AM


If you played and loved Medal of Honour (the original, not the modernised EA rip off), Day of Defeat or Insurgency, you're going to love this game.


The graphics are not up to the current standard, but they are OK.  The game play is intense and team work is REQUIRED to achieve the objectives.   It's pre-alpha, and I know that scares a lot of gamers, but this is a good fun game without much of the BS that is in more recent games.


Frequent updates, great dev support, moddable, steam workshop mods and tweaks are already on steam.


This is a new title made in the finest traditions of old school gaming.  I bought it yesterday, and it's only $20.  In my opinion, worth every cent, and I recommend it.   Before you race to steam to throw your money at them, keep in mind that my favourite gaming genre is world war 2, and I played medal of honour and day of defeat A LOT back in the day, so I was pretty much hooked in this before I played it.


Please don't blame me if you buy it and don't like it; the choice is yours.   This might be a good game we can all play together on mixed game nights (which are coming soon).


Narration on this video is pretty funny and worth the watch.
