Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta – Is a Buggy piece of shit on PC

Unlike the multiplayer BETA on PC which worked flawlessly back in August this “game mode” and reason their is no single player in Blacks Ops 4 is a fucking piece of shit on PC.   It dont work.

Ive tried many times to get it to work it has worked 3 times but it just quits and wont start anymore.  Seems like the folks at “Beenox” want PC players to debug the game for them lazy cunts.

Make a copy of the folder inside you should see a folder beginning with st_<bunch of numbers here>
eg “st_700045453”

Your NMS save file is located in; “C:\Users\windows_username\AppData\Roaming\HelloGames\NMS”

Wrong galaxy:
If the No Mans sky CE (Community Event) put you in the wrong galaxy after doing the quest heres how you get yourself back to the galaxy you were in. Example I was teleported back to “Euclid” galaxy when it should have put me back in the galaxy i came from the “Budullangr”.

No Mans Sky NEXT is pretty good – (mini review Work in progress)

No mans sky rolled out a new massive update almost two years since the launched a few weeks ago.

When it was first launched back in 2016 the game was an interesting mildly fun yet empty experience.  I let myself get sucked into the hype and found it quickly got boring.

Fast forward to the “NEXT Update” in july this year which added a host of new features to the game.

Whats new and why its better?

Same old problems remain

  • Performance problems:
    Same issues since i last played it in 2016, performance on PC is very unstable.  There seems to be no way to improve it fully.
  • interface menu system:
    No mans Sky on PC must have one of the worst interface menu systems ive ever seen.  Now i understand why the menu system is the way it is as the game is also running on the PS4 which itself in an impressive feet but theres is no excuse for the menu system navigation on PC and Two years later!  Its awfull
  • Bugs:

RIP Total Biscuit

This guy was the first “youtube” celeb i heard of back when Wow was  huge, around 2006 id guess.

He was one the first people i followed over to youtube from his podcasts about Word of Warcraft.  I remember when i got into World of Warcraft i used to listen to his “Blue Please” podcasts.  He had a fantastic passion for talking about games with his “WTF is ” series.  He was a great gamer consumer advocate.

When a games company did something underhanded he called them out and i salute him for every thing he did.

Below he chats with Etan and Hila from H3H3 Productions on youtube about cancer and its well worth a watch.  This man’s attitude to the fight he had was remarkable.

RIP

RIP John Bain aka Total Biscuit

Help his wife gemma by donating here to the offical fund;

Many of you know the incredible TotalBiscuit aka John Bain.  Many of you also know that he’s been publicly fighting cancer for the last 4 years and recently passed from that fight.

John has had an incredible game’s media career that spans at least 13 years.  During that time he’s covered countless games including World of Warcraft and Starcraft 2 and it would be pretty hard to make a full list of games he’s supported.  He was a journalist, entertainer, critic, philanthropist, and general good dude.  And he was one of the best.

In this career there are no medical plans, no retirement funds, and no golden parachutes.  The financial resources available are limited to the support of viewers and advertisers.  John’s family Genna & Orion are faced with short and long term challenges around housing, living expenses, income security, medical care, and the special needs of Orion (their son).

Please join me in supporting Genna and Orion in this very trying time to help take one burden off their shoulders.

Note: I have personally talked to Genna.  She knows and is very appreciative of anyone showing their support.  Genna is the only person who can withdrawl from this gofundme.

Note to streamers: If you’re looking to support the family, you can use this campaign if you want to raise money and have it go directly to them.
