No, this isn't an exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn snap. It's one of, ahem, bongmaster00's level 180+ pets in ARK: Survival Evolved - that's some dedication right there!
PTC Hetty found and shared a Microwave Mug Pizza recipe courtesy of Bigger Boulder Baking - THIS IS AN ACTUAL THING! That said, after buying former WWE commentator JR's collection of sauces, I could do with some crusts for dipping bah gawd.
Having taken a food break, lets talk games! ImmaturityRules picked up Street Fighter V and pretty much summed up the current experience succinctly:
It's in a bit of a state at the moment, unfortunately.
The gameplay is pretty barebones, with most of the usual features "coming soon".
A real shame considering the strength of the gameplay.
DE4N MUFC confirmed what we already speculated - Uplay's transition to Ubisoft Club makes it no less of a pain to work with. Falling victim to compatibility issues, as many do, he requested Ubisoft delete his old account, only for them to delete the active one and its contents. Ouch.
Onto happier things. PTC l1am posted an Unravel thread to share his gushing review with you folks, and his sentiments were echoed for the most part. Plasma wing and PTC Hetty find it "a fantastically charming game" and "really brilliant" respectively, whilst also acknowledging some "rage inducing" frustrations. It required "a little patience and admittedly a lot of swearing" for Plas to overcome some of the trickier parts, but if you've ever played online with the Yorkshireman, you'll know it doesn't take much to have him swearing like a trooper.
Take his (Xing Tian) failed tower dive at the end of this SMITE clip. Just be glad you can't hear what me and Metalrodent could in our Xbox Live party.
Whilst I've been playing SMITE with Plas and Metalrodent, PTC Decent Jam held a community gaming night on The Division's open beta, which saw a healthy turn out - keep an eye peeled for the resultant video soon.
We're home to a talented bunch. Moderator Max returned from university baring good news:
Uni life update:
Congratulations on all fronts! We also extend the same congratulations to MrkDhn10, who's been accepted for a master's degree on Classics and Philosophy!
On the other hand, some members seem to be running a sort of dodgy Pokémon breeding front, trading the poor pups for fixed wins on Street Fighter V (provided they can connect). I'll be keeping a moderator's eye on these happenings...
Last week's scale modelling inclusion spawned a models thread, in which Metalrodent revealed his tank obsession now expands beyond the virtual in World of Tanks.
Meanwhile, Heavyarms_Kai shared more Gundam models, coming in both badass and cute, cuddly flavours.
Somebody remind me to share my Play Arts Kai Raiden from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance at some point.
Leaving the bosom of our cosy PTC forums, we'll be venturing out into the uncharted wilds of social media now. Following the HTC Vive pricing reveal earlier this week, Twitter user @JerrodS32 was unmoved by the steep $800 price point.
It certainly does look impressive.
Jerrod enjoyed the previous community round-up so much that he joined the forum both to interact with everyone, and in the hope that he'd feature in a future round-up. Well, we like to make dreams come true.
Check back next Friday for more community shenanigans. If YOU want to feature, it's simple, click those three lines in the top left of your screen - yes, those - and select Forum from the list to be whisked away and get involved. You can also follow our social profiles by clicking the respective icon on the bottom right of the page. Easy.
See you next week!
