The Wednesday Night Brawl Returns!

Well it’s been a busy old day here at the country club as we make ready with more entertainment for your merriment and loathing as what has become customary on the internet. Remarkably it’s been a very busy month for various adventures and as such, the web site has been somewhat neglected.

So since the last post where woes about BT and the general state of broadband of West London was being addressed, a couple of new YouTube Videos have been published with slight editing to them to make them slightly more enjoyable for all, and it’s the last two Wednesday Night Brawls no less, featuring the new content from the expansion, The Grand Tournament just released by Blizzard. It’s about time they got released back onto the world for you all to enjoy so finally they get their general release here.

So what’s the new expansion all about and is it any good? Thankfully instead of just playing the game yourself, you can just sit back, relax and fondle yourself* to the below videos while various other things get done in the background. Enjoy!

19th Aug 2015: The Grand Tournament arrives

26th Aug 2015: Encounter at the Crossroads….again!

* I really hope you’re not fondling yourselves to these videos…..because that’s just creepy. Seriously, there’s better stuff to fiddle your diddle to on the Internet!

Internet Limbo

Good evening gentle campers, it’s been a while since there was content posted on Ooh Sometimes again, and in the meantime, there’s just been some hearthstone live-streams via Twitch and then afterwards YouTube appearing in the meantime. So what’s been going on in the meantime? Well, there’s been plenty of things personal wise of course, but perhaps the biggest thing of all, will leave you feeling sorrow never felt before….

I’m leaving BT for someone else….it just wasn’t working out, we grew apart, I met someone else, you know how it goes when it comes to these things, sometimes you just have to go with someone else….someone who may love you, give you something back for all your affection….sob…

Decided not to make this picture more weird than it could have been….

You see, for some time, I was not able to get the exact same service which I had 10 minutes walk away from my old address and given this was still in one of the world’s capital cities, instead of say the deepest darkest part of the world like Telford (which still has better options for internet by the way) I asked Openreach (The people who care about the telecoms infrastructure in the UK, who are “separate” from BT….of course they are….) what the story was with my area.

Broken Ass Mother Trunker: Part 2

In a tried and tested manner of rushing a recording while sleep deprived and ending up babbling through, we finally bring you the proper version of Tembo: The Badass Elephant. It took Sega 24 hours to get the right version released on Steam, and so here is the follow-up video which now features the fully working version which means that you can see properly what the game was to be like.

So come with me to see if the wait is worth it as we become the badass elephant while talking b*llocks and making err noises*;

How not to release a game on Steam….

DISCLAIMER:The video you will see will show how Tembo The Badass Elephant got released on PC day one. As and when it’s patched / re-released or god knows what, there will be a follow up if I repurchase the game that is….

I am disappointment in human form.

Having been looking forward to this from when I played at Rezzed back in March 2015, and thus remarked as follows;

To be fair, who hasn’t already thought about an army elephant saving people while collecting peanuts and ramming walls, enemies and putting out fire with their trunk? I did 23 times today alone. So did the chaps who had taken a lot of cocaine over at Game Freak, who did that Pokemon thing ages ago it appears as they teamed up with Sega to bring this to the gaming dining table, slated for later this summer.

Just have to say, this is an instant purchase if the final product holds up to what was demoed here, which apparently was a very early build and slightly suffering from stuttering but nothing which would really put you off playing.

Just the fact it’s an insane idea alone, let alone a very very enjoyable platform game, with a large amount of charm, people to save / ride on your back to freedom, and the double jump brings with it a cute attempt at flapping his legs to stay in the air longer, yeah, I can easily see it’s appeal.

And then…..we get something broken, which possibly was the same very demo that I played back in March.

Another one bites the dust…..

Just like Warner Bros who suspended any further PC sales on Steam and Retail, Sega has now done the same with Tembo on PC, probably to avoid anyone else picking this up in the broken state it’s in. When asked on Twitter why this happened, the response was;

Later, they fully acknowledged the fault and are working on it….

The worst part is, it appears that the demo they added to Steam is the fully working version which means that you can see properly what the game was to be like, well when you don’t attempt to change resolutions too much…..

Hell, at least Batman ran and saved settings and your game progress despite bad performance! This is actually the first game under the new Steam Refund system that I’ve refunded and basically it could not be a more open and shut case for qualifying for a refund.

Steam actually refunded within minutes and the game was quickly removed from my account. It therefore seems to work as intended.

However….that doesn’t mean you don’t get to see what happened….oh no, just see for yourself how Sega let the game out the door on Steam in the first place and perhaps when they’ve fixed the issue, we shall enjoy properly being a badass elephant;

So sleepy…..

Good day to you all dear campers once again, It’s time for another one of those posts after a few weeks of nothing again to catch up with what’s been going on and what’s to come in the near future again on this lovely little digital tome or beyond.

Hot days make me even more lazy than usual….bring back the cold dark damp nights of misery!

First of all, got to be honest, I’ve been a completely lazy b******d. Being the Lord of Leisure, that shouldn’t be a shock to anyone, but lately during the past few weeks, the day job has been slightly more taxing and therefore the last thing I’ve ever been wanting to do is sit in front of the PC and type away on more gibberish when the real thing has been just sleeping on the sofa to then wake up past midnight and then retire to the bedroom.

Video killed the YouTube Star

You may have been noticing that recently here on Ooh Sometimes, that the blog posts here have been more about attempts of gaming videos which have been somewhat hit and miss in terms of quality and entertainment value, instead of the more usual content remarking on various things in film, gaming and the news.

This is due to wanting to do a little more than just static content on here, in the same way what the “Ooh Sometimes Podcast” was some time ago. But again given the time and effort for that, life overtook everything else, including anything being posted here for periods of time and thus it was consigned to history (at least for the time being.)

Since then, the media landscape has changed massively for media with YouTube and Twitch taking over and providing access to audiences and content that before you could never really see via conventional means. To be honest, given some of the videos on YouTube, it became a case of seeing “How hard could it be?” Continue reading

Gaming Bat Bash

DISCLAIMER:The video you will see will show how Batman: Arkham Knight works on PC from the day one release. As and when it’s patched / re-released or god knows what, there will be a follow up.

And so finally after much waiting, the Batman game we all wanted to play next from the lovely people at Rocksteady has arrived on all next-gen platforms and of course PC. I am the Bane of Leisure and I will guide through the night, to fight foes and drive that new shiny tank / car Batman seems to have now….But this game release is not without a huge amount of outcry from the internet given what state it’s arrived in and what has happened since it’s arrival.

So you are aware, this was played without altering any INI files or any other fixes that have been suggested by the community, it was taken purely n it’s own merits playing on the Evilbeast which will be more in keeping with how many others on PC will have been installing and running it.

At the time this video is going up, TotalBiscuit has already released a Port Report video and there are various others now posting how it runs on their systems, no-one having a good time really. Rocksteady are slowly working on something to try and fix the issues after Warner Bros suspended any further PC sales on Steam and Retail, but how long that will be, is up to everyone to guess;

But when all is said and done, is the game fun to play despite the performance issues, or has the batmobile lost all it’s wheels with the Joker having the last laugh with everyone after all? Go watch the YouTube video and see for yourself what has happened*;

What’s New? In Hearthstone that is…..

DISCLAIMER: I’m not at my best during this, given that I was just getting over being meh. But what the hell!

A brief video again in the same fashion as the recent Brutal Doom video that was put on after the livestream of the game to show it off in it’s proper glory, this time I end up showing you happy campers what’s new within Hearthstone this week as Blizzard released a couple of new nice things to the card game which has everyone crying over how much they’ve spent on a game that’s free-to-play….

So go watch the YouTube video placed below for your card playing pleasure;

Rundown

Hello there campers, this is just a brief post to state that I would have been doing another livestream tonight and release some mutterings on things but….

I am rundown to the point of being almost completely buggered. For some reason, at the end of today, as I reached the end of the work day, I was just feeling weak and perhaps, it’s a sign I’ve been overdoing it out and about and need some time to meh out.

Going to the gym at 6am is supposed to be a good way to start the day but in reality, it’s a sure fire way to drain your lifeforce. The past couple of weeks at the day job which goes to pay for everything here at Ooh Sometimes and the software to create video content has been ridiculously over the top and thus perhaps it’s something which shows you can only do so much.

You’ve got to Spy Harder….

We begin this post about a simple statement of fact.

No-one could have had much faith in this film in the UK given the sheer volume of tickets being given away by pretty much every single outlet going judging from the offers seen over the past week from Hello Magazine to Tastecard. Hell, you probably even a ticket given away with every happy meal seemingly in an attempt to ensure that enough people go in, sit down and then tell everyone else how amazing it is.

So will this blog post on some fat dude’s web space be a good result of that grand experiment or ill, in that it made me feel ill and lose faith in humanity?

Well there’s only one way to find that out, so join me now dear ladies and gentleman on a journey to blow the cover off the newest undercover agent film; Spy

Given this is the first time I’ve seen the lead actress in anything longer than a trailer that I had instantly dismissed, I actually had to look on the internet to see what Melissa McCarthy had done in the past and why the director’s name was banded around so much by various outlets. Turns out they had worked together on films like Bridesmaids and The Heat, which apparently was very successful.  Continue reading
