2023.04.01 06:07 StepwiseUndrape574 GTA V Added To Xbox Game Pass, Possible GTA 6 Release Date News Emerges
Fans of Grand Theft Auto V, who don't already have the game on Xbox One, will be happy to hear about the latest news from Microsoft. The game has been added to Xbox Game Pass, so players with a valid subscription can play the game on the console. GTA V launched back in 2013 and remains a very popular game thanks to online content updates and a massive modding community.
GTA V is also one of the most viewed games on Twitch and is regularly in the top five games on Steam. Rockstar hit a home run with GTA V, and adding it for free to Xbox Game Pass may bring gamers to the franchise that haven't yet tried it out. For Xbox One gamers with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Live Gold membership, access to the frequently updated Grand Theft Auto Online service is included. One sad bit of news is that GTA V is only offered on the console; it's not available on the PC with Game Pass.
While GTA V is still wildly popular, fans are clamoring for the next installment in the franchise: GTA 6. GTA 6 details recently leaked from a claimed beta tester and enticed us with visions of the game. A new rumor claims that GTA 6 won't launch until 2021, however, nothing official from Rockstar has been offered about GTA 6 so far.
The leak from a few days back was posted on Reddit and was later removed by moderators there. It's unclear if Rockstar pressured them to delete the content, but the leaker claimed that the game has a huge map that covers two major cities, Carcer City and Vice City, said to be based on Boston and Miami, respectively. True or not, GTA V fans are looking forward to GTA 6, even if it is a year or more away.

- We were hesitatant on adding this tower to Battles 2, but decided that it was best due to the amount of time we had since we pushed back releasing this beast in BTD 6. This is ultimately why it took us twice as long as expected to release this tower. So thank you for your patience!

2023.04.01 06:04 Lothli M&L April Fool's Special: A Cacophony of Mixed Nuts
Lothli woke up bright and early this Saturday, as always. Then, with a yawn, she checked her phone: April 1st. Was there something important happening today? I don’t quite remember…
Her thoughts were quickly swept away by the mundanity of her morning routine. Pulling on clothes, brushing her teeth, doing her hair…
And so, she was entirely caught off guard when she arrived in the kitchen.
Her twin sister cackled like a madwoman, stirring a gigantic cauldron smelling burnt iron, cotton candy, and writer’s tears.
“Maishul, what exactly have you done?” Lothli sighed, ambling over to the bubbling cauldron.
“This? Oh, just a little April Fool’s prank!” the other twin giggled before pulling out a miniature figurine of a strange humanoid insect. With a snap of her fingers, the statuette grew to full size, glancing around warily.
“Oh goodness! What’s going on here?” the moth woman exclaimed, seeming more confused than frightened. “What kind of insect are you? I’ve never seen anyone with just four limbs like you two!”
Lothli turned to Maishul, a frown on her face. “Is this Minerva? Did you STEAL her? We’re going to get banned, you know.”
The other twin continued cackling, heedless of Lothli’s wrath. “No, no, I got permission! Look!”
Indeed, the paper Maishul pulled out did have the signatures of one, two… how many authors?!
“Maishul, what the heck have you done?” Lothli huffed. “This is— how do we—”
“Excuse me, but I believe I may be lost?” Minerva asked, her wings fluttering nervously. “While I would love to ask the two of you some questions, I need to return to my lab, if you could point me in the right direction?”
“Oh, I apologize, Dr. Minerva. You’re currently experiencing a dream. Please do forget about this,” Lothli sighed before snapping her fingers and reverting the insectoid woman to her figurine form.
“How exactly are we going to explain this to Polaris?” Lothli deadpanned with her gaze on her happy-go-lucky sibling.
“Oh, I have a good ‘ol industrial barrel of Remove-Yo-Memory. I’m sure it’ll turn out fine!” Maishul grinned back. “Look, look! Let me show you what wonderful scenes I’ve cooked up for everyone!” Scene One: Art’s Very Bad, No Good Day
I was not having a good day. First, I was thrown into yet another random plane of existence. Dimension hopping was something I wanted to experience no more than one time in my life; thank you very much. And yet, here I was. In yet another random plane of existence with absolutely no say.
Second all, I found myself surrounded by these strange creatures. Four legs, shimmering black pelt, bizarre snake-like neck, flat head, creepy singular eye, and that weirdly human voice. Definitely not a fan.
The three Iklems crept—
Ahem. The plural of Iklem is Iklemli, Art.
And thirdly, that obnoxious voice ringing out in my head. Who was that? Why were they in my head? And why could they read my thoughts?
Fine. The three Iklemli crept closer and closer, predatory intent clear. I backed away slowly before my phone suddenly burst out with the cheery tune of Weird Al singing, “Just eat it (eat it), eat it (eat it)...”
“I’m in the mother of all situations here, Demoness, and you choose a freaking parody song? Can you at least tell me what the hell is happening here?” I snarled into my phone’s mic, watching the approaching monsters closely.
“M’dear, I hate to say it, but I have no clue what’s happening.” The slight strain in the Demoness’s usually sultry voice gave me pause. That Demoness? Confused? I really was in some deep shit, wasn’t I?
“Could you at least tell me what an Iklem is?” I said, imitating those creatures as best I could.
“My love, how do I explain this? As best as I could tell, at least five foreign dimensions have been forced together into one singular mess. And whoever did it had no grace or finesse at all.”
Tell the Demoness that she has no grace or finesse, either! Hmph!
Rolling my eyes, I communicated the feelings of my new head neighbor to the Demoness.
“Well, dear, tell your new friend that they should consider undoing this fiasco,” the Demoness replied with a sigh. “Whatever the case is, those Iklemli you mentioned are from one of those other dimensions. I can’t tell you a thing about them.”
With that good news, I turned back to the advancing beasts. This was going to be a fun one…
“Maishul, you can’t just break the fourth wall and shove your thoughts into the scene,” Lothli huffed, shaking her head.
“Pfffft!” Maishul blew a raspberry before turning back to her abomination of a cauldron.
“Also, you can’t just swap to first-person narration. We’re in third-person narration.”
“Well, Matt writes in first-person. And I respect our fellow author’s intent; thank you very much!”
Lothli raised an eyebrow in response before pointing to the bubbling cauldron of doom. “You call THAT respecting our fellow authors’ intents?”
“They gave permission!” Maishul pouted before turning back to her inglorious creation. “And you won’t complain once you see my next glorious scene!”
Scene Two: Sloth Squared
Pride’s scowl only grew deeper as he dragged his erstwhile companion along. The swampland around them had warped into a blooming forest, with trees looming large overhead. The various fully intact buildings were most concerning, indicating that the pair had passed into a rift.
“Sloth, GET UP!” he hissed, shaking the lazy layabout.
“Huh? Wuzzit? I’m sleepin…” Sloth snored, already back asleep.
“We’ve got a MAJOR problem here. Pretty sure a rift opened around us, so stay on guard!”
Sloth blearily stumbled to his feet before glancing wide-eyed at his surroundings.
“Holy cow, you’re right! I didn’t even notice. But, man, Pride, I’m so tired… I…” Sloth stumbled a bit further before faceplanting directly into a bed of flowers.
“Dammit, Sloth. This is ridiculous, even for your standards.” Pride leaned down to pick Sloth back up, but something strange was afoot. As soon as he leaned down, an overwhelming surge of exhaustion passed through him as well, and he collapsed on top of his companion.
“Dude, you’re sleeping right on top of a good patch. Can you two move?” A voice lazily drifted into Pride’s mind before he rocketed up ramrod straight.
“Hwa— what!? Oh. A rifter.” Pride composed himself as he stared down at the man who awoke him. About five foot six, with short white hair and red eyes.
“Uh, I’m not a rifter or whatever you just called me. I’m Clear, prince of Sloth. And you?” Clear tilted his head.
“Prince… of me? Ehehe, there’s no prince of me…” Sloth murmured in his sleep.
“Typical rifter, spewing nonsense. Come on, you lazy bum. We’re gonna hide before this gets violent.” Pride turned to drag Sloth away but found his legs unwilling to move.
“Hey, man. C’mon now. You haven’t noticed you’re in a dream yet?” Clear said, his hand extended. “Let’s just talk, alright?”
Pride struggled for a few more moments, then back at Clear. “Alright, alright, never seen a rifter do that before. Calm down, yeah? I’ll chat until this rift collapses.”
“So please, introduce yourself properly this time,” Clear responded, freeing Pride with a flick of his hand.
“Right. I’m Pride, that’s Sloth.” Pride pointed at himself, then at his companion. “Can we go?” “No. Please explain what you are doing here and those wings on your back.” Clear yawned. “Also, don’t use our nation’s name as a moniker. It’s probably disrespectful… or something. Eh, we don’t actually care that much.”
“Huh? We’re here because your stupid rift pulled us in,” Pride hissed. “And these wings? We were born with ’em. No story here. Also, pretty sure we were the ones who had those names first.”
“Eh, the kingdom of Pride wouldn’t be very happy to hear about that,” Clear responded. “But whatever, man. Things have been rather chill ever since a random blob named Sparky fell on top of the Demon King and ate him or whatever. So enjoy the nap, I guess. Mind if I join in?”
Pride rolled his eyes before scooting over to allow Clear access to the flowers. Before long, Sloth and Clear were snuggled up together, much to the chagrin of Pride.
“What the hell am I supposed to do now?”
“Aren’t they just the cutest?!” Maishul exclaimed. “We should make that our newest OTP. I bet Haru would approve.”
“Please don’t ship characters across two different SerSuns,” Lothli replied with a shake of her head. “Also what was that about Sparky eating the Demon King—”
Scene Three: Machines, Demons, and The World Tree
There was a rather strange rash of oddly dressed folk in Lugavya lately. Or rather, just odd folk in general.
Rumors flew of a human with bird wings who passed over the town, carried through hurried whispers between the residents. A strange man with fierce red eyes insisting on making ‘deals,’ much to the annoyance of passersby trying to get through their day.
Lena and Veska had met to investigate, unable to keep themselves still while such strange events abounded. No sooner had the two exchanged greetings did two strange men approach, flagrantly discarding any sensibilities on their right to free speech.
“Hello!” the younger one called out before getting his head gently bonked by the older.
“W-what was it? Oh! The greeting we use should have been ‘well met,’ right?” the teenage boy puzzled himself, rubbing his head.
“No. Firstly, as foreign visitors, we do not use that greeting. Secondly, we do not greet them. They greet us,” the older whispered, turning his eyes to Lena and Veska. It seemed at least one of them remembered their manners.
“Peace, strangers. We will not begrudge you for your transgressions. Tell me, what business have you with us?” Lena began.
“We are looking for directions. We have lost our way. Please, would you tell us our current location? Latitude and longitude are preferred, but any notable landmarks will do.” The older man bowed slightly, with the younger following shortly after.
Latitude? Longitude? These words were unfamiliar to Lena and Veska.
“This is Lugavya. Home to Alvedos, the World Tree?” Veska explained, an eyebrow raised. Were these folks raised under a rock or something?
The two men conversed among themselves, their frowns deepening.
“Apologies, but I am unaware of Lugavya. Could you perhaps point us in the direction of the United States?” the older asked, tilting his head slightly.
“Oh, and if you know of any demons, could you put in a word for me? I can’t figure out the ritual to get home without one of them…” the younger added.
The United States? Demons? More unfamiliar terms. Lena and Veska knew these newcomers were oddballs, but this was a bit much.
“I’m sorry—really! But we simply don’t have the knowledge to help the two of you. Perhaps you could head to the Foresters? I’ll give you their location.” Lena rattled off directions to the nearby Foresters’ hall.
“Thank you very much.” The older man stalked off after a stiff bow, and the younger man quickly followed.
“Sticks and stones, what is the world coming to?”
“Was that Megan’s SerSun? All that intricately balanced worldbuilding, and you just shoved random crap in.” Lothli barely held back a sigh. “Also, you didn’t even introduce those two characters. How are our readers supposed to know who they are?”
“This is left as an exercise to the reader,” Maishul tittered into the camera before returning to the glorious mess in her cauldron.
Scene Four: The One With No Chill
There wasn’t much that could faze a Huntress.
It was often said that their wills were unshakable. Nothing could cause them to stop them from single-mindedly accomplishing their goal. And yet, Olivia stood dead in her tracks, staring at the abomination across the Dam square.
“I AM OLIVIA. DARK HUNTRESS. SMASHER OF SQUEAKERS. AND THE ONE WITH NO CHILL,” the awful creature that vaguely resembled Olivia boomed.
“That young lass a friend of yours?” Barlow remarked, barely holding back a chuckle.
“Nope.” Olivia chucked one of her daggers at the offending sight, but she deflected the blade with a ripple of its musculature.
“You are weak. You have no strength. Witness me, false Olivia.” The muscle monster took up a ridiculous pose, her muscles overtly flexing.
“I will destroy you. And after that, I will destroy your creator. And I’ll salt your entire bloodline, while I’m at it,” Olivia snarled.
“I would like to see you try, false Olivia. Last time, I was overcome by the power of the Deus Ex Machina. But this time, I will not be struck down.” The monster took a step forward, the cobblestones cracking under her feet.
Olivia flinched. A Huntress does not feel fear. A Huntress does not back down. Yet… in the face of this horrible being… Her mind recalled the near-death experience she had with the Beast. Did she really want to face that again?
She shook her head, clearing it. No. She would finish this. Olivia raced at the mocking facsimile of herself, her onyx daggers at the ready. As she drew closer, she summoned every ounce of strength and struck.
As Olivia flew through the air, the world seemed to slow down.
Ah… this feels… familiar…
“‘Admittedly, Huntress, you are quite the entertainer—”
“No!” Lothli slapped the figurines out of Maishul’s hands, sinking them into the dreadful mire of the cauldron below. “You can’t reuse that line for the third time!”
“But you used it, Lothli. That’s hypocritical!” Maishul harrumphed.
“Yes, because it was the first time we used it. You can’t just reuse jokes like that!” Lothli glared. “And don’t think I forgot about that comment Clear made about Sparky. What. Exactly. Did you do?”
“Uhm, uhh…” Maishul stuttered. “W-Well, I maybe kinda spilled some my Story-Breaking-Plot-Devices into the cauldron on accident…”
“Your WHATS?!” Lothli stared at her twin in disbelief.
“Uhh, it wasn’t a big deal or anything. Just, uh... Scarlet, the Demon King, Sparky, Wan, Pre-Geas Dread Lord Ardus, the plague from , the Deus Ex Machina, the Beast, and the entirety of the United States’ arsenal of nuclear weaponry.”
Lothli shook her head with a sigh. “I’m pretty sure you caused mass human extinction at least three times over.”
“Well! No time to worry about it! Next scene!”
Scene Five: Bea and Ophelia Discover The Wonders of Nuclear Physics
Bea and Ophelia stared at the booklet that had just materialized before them. “Maishul’s Simple Guide to Stealing and Utilizing the Entirety of the United States’ Arsenal of Nuclear Weaponry: For Dummies!” The booklet was decorated with garish stickers of rainbows and glitter, along with cartoonish mushroom clouds.
With a glance at Ophelia, Bea picked up the book. Immediately, her mind was flooded with images and knowledge. Where exactly every nuclear silo in the United States was located. The launch codes and how to bypass the two-key rule. The birth and loving families of each and every nuclear warhead…?
“Bea? Dear? Are you alright?” Ophelia shook Bea gently, concerned. Bea wordlessly handed over the booklet and watched the same information flow through her. The two shared a meaningful glance before turning the manual over. A bright red button sat there, glowing ominously amongst the childish stickers and drawings of shocked faces.
“This is absolutely too dangerous to be left just lying around,” Bea murmured, staring at the booklet intently. Maybe it was a prank some lesser fae put together to induce some concerning but ultimately harmless illusions. But deep down, the two knew this was far more sinister than a simple prank. Plus, there was no fae named “Maishul” that either of them knew of.
“I’m going to have to seal this thing away with the strongest magic I have,” Ophelia declared. With a wave of her hand, ethereal chains weaved around the book. Magical seals whirled through the air, all concentrated on the offending manual. The horrors of nuclear annihilation have been contained with a final clap of her hands.
For around five seconds. Immediately after the ritual was complete, as if to spite Ophelia’s work, a glowing sword descended from the heavens, slicing through the glowing chains and seals like butter. The two barely managed to glimpse the name written on the side: “The Deus Ex Machina,” before the blade landed squarely on the big red button with a satisfying click!
“So what exactly were you saying about ‘not worrying about it’?” Lothli shook her head in dismay. “How are we going to explain this mess to their poor, poor writers? What are we going to say to Bay?”
“It’ll be fine! I’m not breaking any of the rules on shortstories, which means I totally can’t be banned!” Maishul quipped cheerily.
“That is 100% not how it works.” Lothli crossed her arms. “Don’t drag me down with you.”
“I dunno! You’ll bail me out, right?” Maishul shrugged before returning to her appalling project. “Next scene!”
Scene Six: Sanguia Loses a Fight
These were the end times. The world felt… sideways. The government was in shambles. A plague that turned people into fine, yellow dust had apparently appeared, sweeping the continent from east to west. Yet, there was nothing I could do. Right in front of me, I had my own foes to contend with on the roof of Holos Lucidium.
On my right was a shapeless mass, writhing and transforming, throwing vicious barbs my way. It never introduced itself, but I knew its name from within myself: the Beast.
On my left was a much more innocent figure, at least on the surface. He had slicked-back black hair, brown eyes simmering with self-assured pride, and an easy smirk. And to cap it off, he introduced himself promptly and with great gusto; he was Dread Lord Ardus.
I could attempt to flee, but what purpose would that serve? Even if I got away, which my gut told me was highly unlikely, I would be abandoning my guild to die to these two monsters. So no. I stood my ground here.
“Sanguia. Member of Holos Lucidium.” I balanced my stance between my two flanks, watching both. With a smirk from Ardus and a ripple from the Beast, the fight began.
I quickly discarded the idea of even fighting the rippling mass on my right. It had no blood I could control, and impacting it with my blade would make me stuck. But the Dread Lord was no slouch, either.
As I rushed at Ardus, a tingle in my spine screamed at me to duck. I tucked into a combat roll as a great blast of flame roared right where I used to be.
“Fiesty, aren’t you? Well, that’s what makes it fun,” the Dread Lord growled, licking his lips.
I had no time to respond as a raging, shimmering bull attempted to ram its gleaming horns directly through me. I sprung off the ground, landing just behind the writhing bull. There was no time to go on the offensive; it took all I could to stay alive.
“Stop struggling, Interloper,” the Beast snarled. “I have plans I have to attend to. Plans that do not involve you.”
I kept the undulating mass between myself and my second opponent. My only hope was to promote crossfire. The dagger I held in my right hand felt woefully inadequate for this task.
“You heard the fella. I’ll end this, here and now.” Ardus thrust his hand straight up into the air as if grasping something far above him.
“Dread Lord. May I take this as a sign of betrayal?” The Beast rumbled, a dangerous edge to its voice.
“Nah, I never said I was working with you. You’re too… icky for my tastes.” The Dread Lord tapped his chin thoughtfully. “It’s a good thing you’ll be obliterated in an instant. Ta ta!”
I looked up with a heavy heart, knowing how outclassed I was. There was barely time to say goodbye before a massive ball of light enveloped me in its all-consuming shine. The last thing I managed to think was:
That was an utterly unfair fight.
“Well, the protagonist of our SerSun just died. What now?” Lothli looked at the cauldron in dismay.
“Hey, it’s not so bad! Scarlet is still alive, right?” Maishul dug around in the cauldron before pulling out yet another distended scene. “Look! Here she is!”
“What… is that?” Lothli looked at the scene with equal parts awe and disgust.
“Oh! Well, I really liked Fye’s SerSun, so I made my own! Isn’t it great?”
“Maishul, I think you missed the entire point of his SerSun. Where’s the inter-character drama? Where’s the mystery? Where’s the actual HISTORY?” Lothli poked the off-kilter scene with distaste. “This version of the story is just <Murder.>.”
“Well too bad, dear ‘ol sis! Here! We! Go!”
Scene Seven: Murder Without the History
Hi, I’m Benedict Lushon, Ben for short. Somehow, I think I just unlocked the secret to teleportation. I stand in the middle of the mansion’s dining room, feeling my stomach turn violently. One moment, I was chained in front of a cackling Kyle, and the next thing I know, we’re back in this blasted room. I crane my head, checking who else is here.
Teddy, check. His monocle and top hat are still crooked as he looks around the room, just as confused as I.
Cornell, check. Unfortunately, he still seems to be out cold.
Kyle, check. Wait—
I stride up to Kyle and grab onto his lapels. “What exactly have you done?” I say, shaking him back and forth.
Unfortunately, he seems even more confused by the current events than I am, judging by the bulging eyes and frothing at the mouth.
“W-What exactly happened here!? We were just— and then—” my former coworker manages to sputter out before a booming feminine voice rings out from the walls.
“Heya! What’s up, characters! It’s me, ya girl Maishul, back at it again with another fun murdery twist!” The cheery voice that booms out from the walls contrasts with all the horrors we’ve seen thus far. Also, who talks like this? Did we get kidnapped by one of those Instagram influencers? Ugh, I hate those kinds of people.
“Who are you?! What have you done?!” Kyle screams, his voice cracking. “I have waited YEARS to take my revenge on these fools, and you—”
“Oh. You.” The voice seems displeased at the interruption. “Sorry, I didn’t think your Tuffy plotline was interesting, so I retconned it!”
Now, that was the mark of a bad writer. As a future multi-bestselling author, I know that one of the most sinful things a writer can do is randomly retcon the story. I’m confident this random influencer girl will never go anywhere in her writing career.
“YOU! We were known as the Tufforo family, and we—” Kyle rages before being cut off by the voice again.
“Sorry, don’t care.” A piece of duct tape manifests itself directly onto Kyle’s mouth. I would find it funny if it didn’t demonstrate how supernatural this influencer’s power seems.
“Anyways! Here’s the rules. I’m not really good at that being cryptic thing, so it’ll be easy!” the voice announces with glee. “Here’s my super special sparkly OC, do not steal, known as Scarlet, Scourge of the Americas. She’ll try and chase you down! She wins when you’re all dead. You all win when, I don’t know, she dies of old age or something. You can try to kill her; it won’t work!”
‘Super special sparkly OC, do not steal?’ So, what, did I find myself in some hellish parody of Earth? That must be it. This must all be a very terrible dream. I sincerely hope that none of my readers would ever consider making fanfiction like this of my stories.
“By jove, those rules seem downright unfair!” Teddy finally seems to have found his voice. “Please, good madam, could you let us go? We have already suffered at the hands of that accursed man—”
“Lalala, can’t hear you!” the girl’s voice sang out. “Here she comes! Give it up for… Scarlet!”
A hidden panel drops a… rather regular-looking young woman onto the floor. Why, if I were in charge, I would have ensured that my villain would have a spectacular appearance. Someone as fascinating and spellbinding as Jack the Ripper—
Scarlet dashes at Kyle and [REDACTED]
… … Technical Difficulties
“MAISHUL! What the hell was that?! Is that how you talk when I’m not around? And what the hell was that last section?” Lothli furiously slapped the tortured scene back into the accursed project bubbling menacingly below.
“Well, Scarlet’s kinda messy, so I tried to cover it up,” Maishul pouted. “Also, I was just trying to liven up the scene a bit! Kyle’s so BORING. He speaks in RIDDLES and they make my brain HURT.”
“That’s because you don’t have a single brain cell in that head of yours,” Lothli huffed. “Don’t make such sweeping changes to people’s stories!”
“Well… dear sis, could I trouble you for a favor, since I’m so head empty ‘n all?” Maishul smiled her widest, most brilliant smile.
“What.” The other twin glared back, unimpressed.
“Well, if you don’t want the two of us to get banned, can you help me separate these stories back out? Please?” With a fluttering of her eyelashes and a winsome wink, this would undoubtedly win her sister to her side—
“Deal with it yourself. I’m going to hand out apologies.” Lothli had no sympathy for her twin’s plight.
“Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!” Maishul cried. For now, she was burdened with her least favorite task; actual work.
And thus, this tale comes to a close. Nevertheless, its name will ring true throughout the land as the legendary fable known only as “In the Shadow of Machines, Scarlet, and the In Between Geas and the Beginning of the Demon Murder History: Dissonance, also How Did We Get Here?”

2023.04.01 06:02 StepwiseUndrape574 Grand Theft Auto 6 Fan Footage Shows Unreal Engine 5 Driven Vice City Splendor
Various pieces of Grand Theft Auto 6 news has been circulating lately, with a variety of leaks and information hitting the web. For example, just yesterday we learned that famed rapper 50 Cent might play a role in the next -- as yet unannounced -- installment of the GTA series. However, fans are growing tired of waiting and have begun to come up with thier own GTA 6 content to tide themselves over.
Posted to YouTube earlier this week, creator TeaserPlay envisioned the Grand Theft Auto 6 world in Unreal Engine 5. Based on prior leaks and information about the game, the technical or concept demo shows a part of what could be Vice City, as we follow a female character walking and driving around. You can check out the full demo below. It is pretty slick looking save for a few minor things.
Interestingly, this is not the first time we have seen fan content for GTA 6, but it is one of the more recent and diverse creations. In any event, fans seem to be chomping at the bit for new GTA news, but Rockstar is keeping its cards close to the vest. Sadly, this is likely due in part to the leaks that happened in 2022, whereafter Rockstar seemed to hold onto any information in an effort to control the narrative around the game. Despite this, there still have been numerous leaks showing off new characters, a bit of the game world, and some of the tech for making GTA 6.
At the end of the day, we hope it won’t be too long before we get some official GTA 6 news, as there has been speculation of a 2024 or 2025 launch. Realistically, that is not all that far off anymore, so stay tuned as we keep our eyes peeled for any new GTA 6 announcements or information.

2023.04.01 06:01 sweetdude64 Bloons TD 6 - Update Notes! Version 36.0
| || |Bloons TD 6 v36.0 - Update Patch Notes! COMING SOON - Update 36! submitted by sweetdude64 to btd6 [link] [comments]
Hello, and Welcome to the 36.0 Balance Changes! The latest update is right around the corner, so we wanted to hear the communities feedback!! Let us know how you feel about each of these changes in the comments, and we will be sure to take them into consideration.
Thank you for supporting us after all these years!!
BIG CHANGES/UPDATES BEAST HANDLER:
Whereas we recently released a video and upcoming version preview to the Reddit, we feel it necessary to double back on this due to us feeling that the Beast Handler is still too complicated, so we are reworking it, again, meaning it will be delayed another 2+ updates. Sorry!
However, to ensure this does not happen again, we will be removing tower upgrades entirely from this new tower to ensure the Beast Handler is not too complicated going forwards. We hope to see you play around with this new tower in a few months!!!
- Due to popular demand, we have removed portable lake stacking.
- Fixed a bug that allowed games to save when pausing and returning to menu
- Fixed exploit that allowed temporary buffs like heroes and Jungle Drum Villages to not be absorbed by Lych
- Fixed Buff that allowed Monkey Ace and Navarch Paragons to Buff each other. Paragons will never be buffed, so we hope you enjoyed this exploit while it was in the game!
- On a similar note, we have removed the natural overclock from the Engineer Paragon. However to keep true to the middle path, we have given it extra range, cleansing foam targeting, and +1 damage to MOAB Class Bloons
Pat was always intended to be the chunkiest monkey, and his rallying roar is still a little too strong, even after the previous nerf. So we are doubling down on our previous patch of Pat:
- Pat Fusty footprint increased 28 -> 54
- Rallying Roar range decreased 72 -> 58
We have noticed many complaining that certain paragons are weaker than their counterpart 3 5th tier towers because the paragons cannot be buffed while the towers can. In order to counter this, we are increasing the Paragon Level cap 100 -> 500.
However to keep gameplay balanced, the only way to achieve these 400 bonus levels on each paragon is to use Geraldo's Totems.
-We recognize totem spam will likely be annoying for many players, so we are increasing the total power each paragon totem gives from 300 -> 350.
LEAD BLOONS Bloons
was always intended to portray real life physics. Due to this, we are changing lead bloons to only be popped from melting.
- We also want bloons other than ceramics and fortified to have multiple layers, so lead bloon layers have been increased from 1 -> 4, and fortified leads are increased from 5 -> 15
- Striker Jones, Bomb, and Mortar are no longer able to damage lead bloons
- Juggernaut and Crossbow Master no longer Pop leads
- Of course, x5x Super Maelstrom no longer pops leads
- Ice towers no longer pop leads at any level
- Sniper monkeys are no longer able to Pierce lead bloons
- Hydra Rocket Pods and MAD no longer pop leads
- Razor Rotors no longer pops leads
- Explosive pineapples, and the respective x3x and x4x bombs no longer Pop leads
- Lead to gold converts lead bloons into golden leads instead of popping them, similar to rubber to gold
- Cleansing foam no longer pops leads, but makes them resistant to explosive damage
Whereas purples are an interesting bloon that prevents the abuse of certain gameplay styles, the long gaps in between rounds in addition to purple bloons only capable of being spawned naturally like leads make it too easy to get around the weakness these bloons are supposed to provide.
- Instead of purple bloons absorbing attacks, they will now Completely Stun All monkeys with plasma projectiles while on screen.
- 3xx Submarines and 4xx Bloontonium Reactors now automatically submerge when purple bloons are on screen
- Shimmer and Signal Flare are now incapable of de-camoing Purple Bloons.
- Purple bloon life Drain increased 12 -> 35
- All purple bloons will spawn fortified past round 50. Fortified purples HP 1 -> 6
Due to the power ceiling being increased over time from constant power buffs, ceramics are no longer a threat late game when compared to MOAB Class bloons. Especially with recent buffs to super mines and bloon solver. This goes against the intended game design, so we are hoping these changes will fix that:
- Super Ceramic Health 60 -> 200
- Fortified Ceramic Health 80 -> 1,000
- MOAB Class bloons ramping reduced 1 -> .5
- Cerams will now incrementally increase in health every round
- Due to popular demand, Contested Territory Events have been changed from a weekly event to a daily event. This is to help separate Bloons TD 6 from the monotonous waiting of the standard Facebook game.
- Bloonarius feels especially underpowered compared to its boss counterparts. It is meant to be the slow tank compared to other bosses. So, Bloonarius HP has been increased at all levels, and all other boss speeds have increased. Hopefully now Bloonarius will feel like a unique counterpart from the rest!
- Bloonarius HP Tripled
- Bloonarius remains at its current speed. All other bosses receive a 50% increase in their current speeds Vortex is widely known as the easiest boss. To counter this, we are increasing the Stun duration.
- Vortex's Stun has been increased from 10s -> 30s
- Fixed bug that prevented Lych soul from ramping with freeplay rounds
For a long time, we have wanted crit shots to be a bigger part of the game, as you can probably tell by the addition of crit shots on certain towers more recently. We feel ready to make a big jump by giving every tower an 8% chance to crit for 5x damage on the crit attack.
All around, towers have been feeling a bit strong, so to counteract this new CRIT Change, every tower has had its attack speed reduced. We have extensively play-tested this new change and feel confident it will breed new life to the game! In addition, to clear up any confusion, the word CRIT that pops up will now fully spell out "CRITICAL SHOT!"
- Every tower now shoots 33% slower
- "CRITICAL SHOT" text on screen increased 0.5s -> 2.8s
- "CRITICAL SHOT!" Font size increased 8 -> 20
- A large, thick black border will now be placed on the "CRITICAL SHOT!" Text for easier accessibility
Dart monkeys have always been a strong addition to the game. In fact, they are 2-3 times stronger than the dart monkeys from btd 1-5. To level out the insane power increase, we are nerfing the base dart monkey.
000 dart monkey price increase 200 -> 450
Whereas we are pleased with the direction paragons are moving in, we feel as if the Dart paragon does not accurately resemble the 3 upgrade paths as well as it should. So we are changing the Ultra Juggernauts damage type so that it may no longer pop purple bloons. We pride ourselves on community feedback, and we have heard how much fun it is to bounce Juggernaut balls off of walls. We are keeping with that influence of game design to make fans happy.
- Juggernaut & Ultra Jug Lifespan Increased 6s -> 180s
- Juggernaut Pierce Increase 50 -> 80
- Ultra Jugg Pierce Increase 80 -> 420
- Ultra Juggernauts damage type from Normal -> Plasma
The middle path has been neglected for a long time. However before we inevitably buff it, we must first nerf it:
- Any super monkeys on the field get transformed to 000 dart monkeys when a SMFC ability is activated, including VTSGs.
- All SMS Powers are reverted to dart monkeys which do 1 damage to bloons upon usage
To add more viability to the bottom path, we are increasing total damage.
- CRIT shot changed from every 8 shots to every 1 shot.
- Normal shot damage reduced 30 -> 0
In an effort to reduce late game lag, we are reducing the amount of total projectiles in-game. However, we do not want to disrupt the balance of towers, so we are evening out the damage.
- Tack Sprayer 16 tacks -> 8, damage 1 -> 2
- Overdrive 16 tacks -> 8, Attack speed .28 -> .72, damage 1->4
- Tack Zone Tacks 32 -> 8, Attack Speed .18 -> .72, damage 2 -> 20
The top path has been getting a lot of love, however the bottom path feels more neglected due to the buffs of the now-superior top path. Hopefully this rework can change things up.
- MOAB Press 204 MOAB Damage 50 -> 100
- Left Handed Kylie Boomerangs now shoot boomerangs directly behind them instead of in front of them.
Due to the imbalanced nature of the bomb at release, we quickly needed to adjust gameplay to suit every tower. Now that the gameplay is stable, we will be reverting many of these changes. While also buffing up the rest of the tower in the process.
- Frag bombs 002 no longer does black popping power
- Base bomb shooter attack speed increased .72 -> .48 (All upgrades increased naturally)
- Base cannon explosion radius increased 56 -> 78 (All upgrades increased naturally)
- In order to reduce lag when using this tower, the bottom path has been reworked.
- xx3 xx4 and xx5 cluster bombs, recursive cluster, and bomb Blitz cluster projectiles 8 -> 1. Instead, cluster bombs cause bloons to spread, preventing grouped bloons from overwhelming your defense. Try these against a round 63 cluster!
We were hoping to keep it a surprise, but we are revealing this early: Special Agents are being brought to the game!
In an effort to make more synergy between towers and special agents, the glue gunner is being renamed to the Honey Gunner to create crossplay between this tower and the Beekeeper.
Despite the past 8 buffs making the bloon solver one of the strongest towers in the game early on, it falls off in late game play. We feel it could be stronger, so we are buffing its viability all round.
- 5xx bloonsolver damage tick speed increased 12-> 58
- Bloonsolver damage to BAD bloons increased 1 -> 8
The glue gunner has always been a fun tower, ever since its hayday back during BTD 4. However, it has made the bloons too little of a threat as of recently, especially the middle path.
- All ceramics are now immune to any yellow glue, up to and including 252 glue gunners
Super glue is fun for what it is. However, we felt it isn't sticky enough. In an effort to increase its uses in more scenarios, we are giving it more variability.
- xx5 super glue Pierce increased 8 -> 22
- xx5 super glue attack speed increased 0.36 -> 0.22
- xx5 super glue slow effect increased 128 -> 256
- Super Glue damage to BADS 1 -> 950
The sniper has always been a good contender for strongest tower in the game, and we have noticed a spike in usage recently. However, it still feels weak compared to the direction we are headed in.
- All shots now crit
- Sniper now ignores lines of sight
The top path feels too essential in the current late game meta. So we are changing the effect to something more reasonable.
- 5xx Cripple MOAB No longer deals 5x more damage to MOAB class bloons. Instead, it has a chance to CRIT for a whopping 120 damage!
The middle path upgrade, bouncy bullets, never made sense from a physics perspective. To counter this, bullets are no longer bouncy, and instead are piercy.
- Bouncy bullets renamed to Piercy bullets
- Piercy bullets can pierce through 3 bloons, similar to churchill
- x4x and x5x can pierce through 5 and 7 bloons respectively
Bottom path has always felt a little strong in addition to always being a strong cross path. We hope this change will make the tower more well rounded.
- Sniper base attack speed increased .8 -> .56
- xx1 and xx2 upgrades left unchanged.
Similar to other towers, Shell Shock Mortars will now shoot explosive turtle shells instead of Mortar rounds to emphasize the synergy between this tower and the new Special Agent Tribal Turtle.
Due to popular demand, we are adding a pursuit option to the Mortar. However to balance this, we are decreasing its accuracy.
- 000 Mortar Pursuit Target Priority
- 000 Mortar shot spread reduced .72 -> .12
- 1xx Mortar shot spread returned to normal
- We want the Biggest One to FEEL like an upgrade from its inferior stepping stone, the big one. So, it's now a global range tower.
- Biggest One Attack Radius Increased 50 -> 400
To switch up gameplay, we are changing around top path upgrades.
- 2xx Advanced Intel now has automatic global range. But it can no longer shoot bloons that are in range of other towers.
- 3xx submarine now decamos bloons globally, however all bloons within its radius are automatically camoed.
- Bloontonium reactor can no longer Pop regrow bloons
The middle path ability felt too good at cleaning up the insides, especially of BAD Bloons.
- x4x ability damage decreased 8,000 -> 3,000
The middle crosspath is the obvious choice over the bottom crosspath in almost all scenarios. In an effort to make each crosspath unique and significant, we are changing things up!
- Base dartling swivel speed reduced 30 -> 6
- xx1 Faster Swivel Speed now grants lock in place targeting priority
In order to reduce projectiles late game, we are reworking the Monkey Ace to properly represent how we believe this tower should function in order to minimize lag and maximize fun. The Monkey Ace will now shoot darts out of the front of the Ace, similar to the BTD 5 Specialty Building Bonus:
- Monkey Ace Darts reduced 8 -> 1
- Monkey Ace Attack Speed .7 -> 3
- Monkey Ace Damage Increased 1 -> 2
- 2xx, 4xx, and 5xx have received similar changes by reducing darts to 1 and increasing DMG and SPA.
The Comanche Commander was beloved at the start of the game, however has long since fallen off. So, we are reverting the nerf allowing it to easily solo round 98 once again.
- Comanche Commander damage 2 -> 8
- Mini Comanche damage 4 -> 24
In order to balance this, we are reducing the speed the heli pilot can move.
- Base Helipilot Speed reduced 3 -> 0.8
Like the tack shooter, the Super Monkey is being reworked to reduce projectiles late game for stability reasons:
- Base Super Monkey Attack Speed .035 -> .35, damage 1 -> 5
- 1xx Laser Vision now shoots 1 laser instead of 2.
- 3xx Super Monkey Projectiles Reduced 3 -> 1
- x3x Robo Monkey: 2 Arms reduced to 1
Due to positive fan reception of the recent Call to Arms global Buff, we felt it reasonable to apply this to temples as well:
- 4xx and 5xx temples now Sacrifice ALL towers and Heroes on the map
We believe all towers should have their time to shine. No tower should be able to solo the game without much thought and effort.
Additionally, in an effort to reduce the over powered nature of Super monkeys, we are reducing their overall damage to encourage a more well rounded gameplay style which favors a variety of towers:
- 4xx and 5xx Sun Temple base damage reduced 50 -> 5
- 4xx and 5xx Sun Temple sacrifices have received a similar 10x downscale.
- x5x Super Monkey Price Increased 90,000$ -> 300,000$
- xx5 Super Monkey Price Increased 166,000$ -> 635,000$
We greatly enjoy one of our recent change to alchemists, however we feel like we did not go far enough with it to make it viable. Hopefully now it can be used more effectively:
- Lead to gold damage to DDTs 8 -> 80
BMA is too strong late game, and too weak early game as it loses players money. So hopefully this will wise players up when considering placing him.
- If a Bloon Master Alchemist potion hits a red bloon, the potion will transform the red bloon into a BAD.
Some upgrades feel a little bit too over and under powered for cross paths to be viable. Hopefully these changes will create more balanced play.
- Caltrops no longer place when the Ninja is attacking bloons
- Distraction chance increased 35% -> 100%
- 5xx Grandmaster Ninja shots reduced 8 -> 1
- 5xx Grandmaster projectile footprint increased 2 -> 38
- 5xx Grandmaster Ninja Pierce increased 2 -> 40
- 500 Grandmaster Ninja projectiles now Bounce off walls
Wizards are purely magic based towers. So it didn't make sense to give them upgrades that granted them purple popping power. Fortunately, the wizard has been buffed up enough that this nerf will still keep it playable without being overpowered:
- xx5 Phoenix ability no longer pops purple bloons.
- xx4 and xx5 Necromancer bloons no longer pops purple bloons.
Due to primary towers overshining the village in pretty much all aspects, we are reworking the top path:
- Primary Expertise: Buffs to Primary Towers -> Buffs to other villages in radius:
- xx4 Call to Arms and xx5 Homeland Defense: In an effort to reduce projectiles for in game performance, this towers ability has shifted its double attack speed into double range for all towers.
In an effort to minimize the effect of *certain youtubers* to make *specific jokes* about cleansing foam, we are changing the color. In addition, we are changing the later upgrades out of spite:
- x3x cleansing foam color changed from White -> Green
- x4x and x5x Engineer monkeys are now only able to overclock other overclock engineer monkeys.
Bloontraps have been exploited for too long to absorb 100% of bloons. We are countering this gameplay style with nerfs.
- Placed Bloontraps will now have a 0.8s tick cool down interval of being able to absorb bloons
- Bloontrap radius reduced 100% Engineer range -> 30%
To make gameplay more immersive, bananas no longer attract to the cursor, and must be clicked or tapped to pick up.
- For QoL purposes as well as to give more use to this crosspath, the xx2 upgrade allows you to right click to pick up bananas in addition to the left click.
- To avoid potential exploits, Monkey Farmer radius has been reduced 300 -> 80.
- Monkey Farmers Monkey Money Cost 100 -> 500
Due to constant misunderstandings, we are switching the tack shooter to support class and spike factory to primary class. And again to limit projectiles, we are fixing this tower as well:
- Spike Factory Base Pierce 10 -> 1
- Spike Factory Base Damage 1 -> 10
- xx2 Smart Spikes no longer shoot more spikes at the beginning of the round
- Due to high demand, all placeable items will lose their clickable placement locations in favor of randomized placement.
- Friendly Fire is now on by default. Any monkey hit by any projectile will instantly be sold for 0$.
- Removed hotkeys for accessibility reasons
- To make speedruns more competitive as well as to make Apopalypse stand out more as a game mode, Auto start next round has been removed.
- The gameplay cycle of Bloons TD 6 is too short. In an effort to improve this, the fast forward button has been removed. In its place is now a slow-mo button.
We hope you enjoyed this round of balance changes as Bloons TD 6 moves in a more positive direction, as we return back to the game we released at launch. We are eager to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you would like us to revert next!
We have WHOPPING plans for where to take Bloons TD 6 and we hope you all will keep playing and have fun helping us get there. Let’s all plan on having a very happy rest of 2023 together as we look for more ways to involve the community in our vision and plans for where we go next, and until then please know that everyone at Ninja Kiwi wishes you the absolute best for a restful and playful April Fools Day!
ADDITIONAL CHANGES: Update 37+ has been scrapped.

PC shuts off randomly submitted by Blueba1lz to LinusTechTips [link] [comments]
Had issues where my PC would shut off randomly when playing shatterline.
Eventually came to the conclusion my power supply was 12+ years old and figured I'd replace it. Got a 1200w new one
Then in Ark survival evolved on primal fear a spirit Dino attack, lots of light noise etc, the PC would shut off.
Stopped playing that game, PC ran normally for months now as I couldn't figure out why it was shutting off and decided to just avoid the game
Now today, whilst playing furthest frontier it has done it 3 times.
I have all latest AMD GPU updates etc running windows 10.
No error code on motherboard when I start it back up
I am completely lost as to the issue.
Have pulled all power cable out and re plugged to make sure it wasn't a lose connection

2023.04.01 06:00 StepwiseUndrape574 This Red Dead Redemption 2 Mod Adds A New Character And Single-Player Campaign
It has been more than nine years since Grand Theft Auto 5 hit the store shelves. Only about four years have passed since Red Dead Redemption 2 wound up in the hands of fans of the old west game. Most people have played through all the content of both, or at the very least watched streamers and content creators do so. Some people think that there should be new and big updates to Red Dead Redemption 2.
For TakeTwo Interactive subsidiary, Rockstar Games, both of the titles have been practically printing them money, but between the two GTA V has definitely been far more lucrative. With both of the online installments continuing to add content and making it so that there is more to do and play within the universe of these games.

2023.04.01 05:59 ----wombat---- Xbox Series S Help/Venting
TL;DR — my Xbox S keeps crashing, when it reboots it tells me that it crashed because of something that I did, which is false. Also, Microshit sucks.
-- Hello fellow humans of Reddit! --
I purchased my Xbox Series S (new) roughly one year ago. I should have picked up the Series X, I know. But here we are.
-- So, here is what is happening --
- For a month or so my Series S has been crashing hard. When it crashes it is a complete system shutdown.
- After a crash it will only reboot using the power button on the console.
- On reboot the first screen displayed is a screen saying the console auto shut down to prevent itself from overheating.
- Console will no longer download certain games, giving the reason that my "internet is too slow" (it isn't).
- Console will regularly crash while loading into the Apex Legends lobby. I have turned the graphics down as far as they will possibly go. It's starting to look like pong up in here lol
-- Remedies I have tried so far --
- Factory wipe with and without games
- Unplugging the Xbox to clear the cache
- Unplugging my router to clear the cache
- Placing a fan pointed directly at the unit to help circulate cool air and remove hot air
- Arguing with my Xbox (so far the most productive approach, but still no results.)
Believe me, I keep the thing clean. It is well ventilated and blah blah blah. If the thing is overheating it is not because of something I have or haven't done.
What can I do to remedy this without sending it off to Microshit?
Also, has anyone else been thru an absurd amount of controllers on this console? I've been through 5 of them in a year. I take damn good care of the controllers too so going thru so many is downright bamboozling.

2023.04.01 05:57 Niveiventris Who tf is Thaddeus Sholto? And should we even care?
For those who don’t know, someone going by the name Thaddeus Sholto has racked up 100,000+ view on YouTube by posting full length Molly albums as ‘video’ files. Tbh, this is how I was able to sample most of Molly’s music and become a die-hard fan, but now I feel kind of icky going back for more from this person who appears to be fleecing Molly on behalf of themselves and a mega-corporation. So far Molly’s only officially posted Extreme and a few recent singles to YouTube Music and if she posted her other stuff there, then I wouldn’t get that icky feeling anymore (I don’t have Spotify btw) but that’s just me being selfish i guess.
I don’t know what 100,000 views on YouTube amounts to, and since Molly doesn’t really give af about accumulating lots of money I’ll bet she doesn’t either, but don’t you guys think it would be better if she had that revenue to put towards her rent, her next creative project, a vacation, a cup of coffee, a cocktail, a socialist revolution, or running for mayor of Berlin or smth? What do you guys think?

2023.04.01 05:55 Panduhgeddon Lack of figurine/plush merch
It's become increasingly obvious that I can no longer deny it, there's not enough figurine/ plush merch for us Mass Effect fans. We only get limited quanties (about 2500 and that's it no more), sometimes they come unpainted, and plushies are nowhere to be found in the OFFICIAL bioware store. You want a painted $125 garrus status? No, but how about a cup with just N7 on it for 30 bucks? You wanted that limited Edition grunt plushie? We don't have that but we DO have these hoodies that just say N7 on it. It's really frustrating bc I want God mass effect merch that isn't just clothes and accessories, am I just selfish and wrong for that? And I know there's etsy/ebay but it can be more expensive than my want for it and 99% don't come painted either (speaking on figurines).. I hope that changes with the release of the new game but that's all I can really do besides catching the next Limited Edition ME figure/plush. I apologize if this comes off as whiny and ungrateful, I was just hoping there'd be more.

2023.04.01 05:54 SailorHomeworld 2020 is over and my life still sucks because I have crippling anxiety. (This is a huge step in healing and kind words would mean a lot)
| || |
Long time fan of H3 and the Teddy Fresh Brand. It’s been almost 3 years since they first released this shirt, and as a person with Anxiety disorder, Severe Social Phobia, PTSD and stockholms syndrome, It meant a lot to me that something like this actually existed. 10 days prior, after 3 long years of one traumatic situation after another, Losing a one sided custody battle I had to go through against my own family and former in-laws, I had to say goodbye to my 3 small children, 8 year old fraternal boy/girl twins and their 5 year old sister, due to my mental health issues. That was the worst pain I have ever felt, and spiraled into the darkest era of my life. I kept H3 on in the background, because Ethan and Hila have and always will be a comfort to me, and listening to the podcast kept me from losing my sanity altogether. On the day of release(August 11,2020) it had been 10 days of intense pain, and dark thoughts. The podcast was live and I only heard ‘Crippling Anxiety’. I saw that bright Turquoise. Then the Teddy Bear and it was like getting the hug i so desperately craved from anyone and never received. Instantly put a smile on my face, something at the time swore I would never do again. Unfortunately, I wasn’t quick enough and it was sold out. When the rereleased it (2020 is over and my life still sucks) I had just broke away from a very toxic and abusive man, who had left me for a younger woman. I saw it and the new line on the shirt was the most relatable thing I had ever saw. The blue of the shirt and that adorable bear again made me smile for the first time in a long time, and I knew I really needed that shirt as a go to item for dark days. I again was too slow to make the purchase and missed out yet again. I actually cried about it, and still do. As a coping skill,(probably not the healthiest, but it’s still better than most) I have spent countless hours desperately searching for either version of this, usually as a way to get my mind in a positive place. Yes, I understand that it is a only a shirt, and yes I do realize that a shirt is not a cure for my mental illnesses, and since then have purchased only two other Teddy Fresh items(Rick and Morty drop, March 2022. Pink Snowball Hoodie, Black Everybody’s gonna die Tshirt) I have also come to terms with every reason why I lost my children, and have accepted that I cannot take care of anyone until I can take care of myself. Life has turned around entirely and the days are not so dark anymore. I am dealing with my social phobia, anxiety problems and I got a cat which was a huge help with all of that. On bad days, I still search for this shirt online. I really can’t explain why I do this, and will literally spend hours doing so, making this exact shirt is my Holy Grail. Something about that specific shade of bright turquoise, and the fact that I actually do have crippling anxiety, just makes me feel better about myself for being such a messed up person every time I see it. I’ve seen the purple and the black one, and would’ve gladly settled but probably still searched for the Turquoise. Resellers want a ridiculous price for it and I understand. it is a very rare and hard item to find. Maybe someday I’ll find one. Maybe I won’t. I’m gonna keep searching until I find the exact one. Those that have it are extremely lucky to have such a rare and beautiful item. Even if it is just a shirt. I will always be a fan of H3 and Teddy Fresh, Not only because of them being a comfort during the loneliest years of my life, but because of a controversial Turquoise shirt. Thanx for reading if you get to this point. I have no supports, and am starting to work on my fear of socializing by reaching out like this. submitted by SailorHomeworld to TeddyFresh [link] [comments]

2023.04.01 05:51 mcjosk Third time bingo-ing, first time posting a year in review!
| || | submitted by mcjosk to Fantasy [link] [comments]
This is my third year completing bingo, but my first time ever posting about the books that I read. I made it my 2023 new year’s resolution to write a mini review of each book, so obviously I’m posting this at 11:59pm on Friday, March 31 because I’m a procrastinator, even though I finished bingo like 2 months ago!!!!! Do I remember every book that I read this year for bingo? Honestly, no! Do my star rankings actually mean anything? Probably not! Am I speed writing these reviews because I can't wait to start getting excited for next year’s card? 100% yes! Without further ado, please enjoy: 2022 Fantasy Bingo Card
A Book from Fantasy
's Top LGBTQIA List Foundryside
by Robert Jackson Bennett (HM)
This is definitely one of those books where the magic system is thought through to its most logical conclusion, to sometimes very funny results. The book’s structure uses one of my favorite tropes: get a gang of misfits together to pull off a series of increasingly high stakes heists. And I liked the sub-plot romance, although it’s definitely explored more in book two. Unfortunately I wasn’t quite as compelled by the second book and found it a bit confusing, so I’m not sure whether or not I’m going to finish the series. If anybody’s finished, let me know if book three is worth it or not!
Weird Ecology To Be Taught, If Fortunate
by Becky Chambers (HM)
I feel like Becky Chambers is known for writing deep, complex, and relatable non-human characters, but this novella that’s focused solely on human explorers might be my favorite of hers that I’ve read. Some of the scenes of the flora and fauna of the planets were written so vividly that I can call them to mind even as I’ve forgotten central plot points of other books I read this past year. The novella ends on a bit of a question/cliffhanger, but I think it works because I still think about the characters’ ultimate decision at the end of the novella quite often, even if I’m not sure I 100% agree with what they decided to do. Ultimately, a novella that left me with more questions than answers, which I think is a good thing.
Two or More Authors To Weave a Web of Magic
by Claire Delacroix, Lynn Kurland, Patricia A. McKillip, Sharon Shinn (HM)
I’m not usually a short story person, and I randomly picked up this anthology at a used book store, so I didn’t have super high expectations going into the book. I was actually pleasantly surprised by how invested I became in each story, and how each felt like a complete tale where I was satisfied with the ending. My favorite was "The Tale of the Two Swords" by Lynn Kurland, but all four stories are worth checking out.
Historical SFF Siren Queen
by Nghi Vo (HM)
3 / 5 stars
I love love love Nghi Vo’s novellas, so I was really excited when her second novel came out this year. I even specifically waited to read this until I was in LA this summer for ultimate old Hollywood vibes. Ultimately though, this didn’t totally work for me, and I’m not 100% sure why. I think maybe there was something a little unspecific about the characters and the world and the connections to Hollywood history? Definitely some beautiful prose though, and I’m still thinking about some of the scenes even without loving the full project.
Set in Space The Warrior's Apprentice
by Lois McMaster Bujold (HM)
While I love Bujold, I actually hadn’t read any Vorkosigan novels before this year. So I figured this square would be a good excuse to dive in. I initially read Shards of Honor for this square, immediately binged like half of the series in two months, and ultimately decided to use Warrior’s Apprentice because I think more of the book is set in space and Shards of Honor to me felt more like a setup for Barrayar (which might be my favorite book I read all year). If you haven’t dived into the world of Miles Vorkosigan, run, don’t walk. Miles is such a fun and smart-alecky character and the world of Vorkosigan saga is so rich I feel like I could explore it forever. Also, some of the worst book covers I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Love every second of it.
by Connie Willis
Cute mind-reading romance. It’s kind of long but I mostly listened to it on audiobook so it went by fast enough. Not as good as To Say Nothing of the Dog
or Doomsday Book
, but still has the kind of dry humor that you get in To Say Nothing of the Dog
, and I was invested in the romance.
by Natalie Zina Walschots
This did NOT work for me, and the more I think about it the more I dislike it. Starts off promising enough but then it gets really
dark (at least for my taste) and I didn’t think the ending was satisfying (and it was kind of gross). I know this book has fans so if you’re interested in reading it maybe check out a more positive review on Goodreads or Storygraph, sorry!
Book Club OR Readalong Book The Cartographers
by Peng Shepherd
This was kind of meh. I love old maps and archives and portal fantasy so the premise really intrigued me. But I had a hard time getting invested in the characters and was annoyed that the BIG NEW PROJECT that TORE THIS FRIEND GROUP APART was just…making a book of fantasy maps? Like…okay? You and every store on Etsy? Also I couldn't get over the fact that the plot hinged on the main character being able to access NYPL intranet archives on a decommissioned work laptop that hadn’t been used in years. Am I crazy for thinking that’s a bit far-fetched? In a world where you can literally access ghost towns via maps but….I have my priorities clearly!
Cool Weapon All of Us Villains
by Amanda Foody
This was a bit of a last-minute panic bingo switch as I realized that the “cool weapon” in the book I initially had for this square wasn’t magic
and therefore didn’t count. Oh well. I did like the first book of this duology, but then I never finished the second book in the series ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ This is basically the hunger games but for magic so…I’ll take five please thank you very much! The magic system is very cool and gothic, the kids act punk but are all big softies on the inside, and the magic weapons are very central to unraveling the curse of this town.
Revolutions and Rebellions The Bone Shard Daughter
by Andrea Stewart (HM)
Another book that I was initially really hyped for, generally enjoyed the first in the series, and then kind of didn’t like the second book. Another very goth magic system. Another book with lots of broken teens who act more confident than they are.
Name in the Title Carmilla
by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
I read this book in between acts at a Florence and the Machine Concert, surrounded by people dressed as vampires and ghosts so….the vibes were GOOD. This is your sign—read the 19th century lesbian vampire story.
Author Uses Initials Nettle and Bone
by T. Kingfisher (HM)
Not my absolute favorite Kingfisher, but I did love the Goblin Market scene, the cast of characters, and the crafting-based magic system. I wasn’t as invested in the romance although that was a nice touch. It maybe could have been longer? I almost needed a bit more plot and struggle from the characters to match the vastness of the story and the world, but was almost satisfied even with the bit I was given.
Published in 2022 The Golden Enclaves
by Naomi Novak
The rare series ending where I loved every page just as much as I loved the first book! If you’re a fan, this is going to work for you. If you’re not, nothing’s changed from the last two books so probably not worth trying. This was a yes for me though.
Urban Fantasy Light From Uncommon Stars
by Ryka Aoki (HM)
I read this entire book thinking that Starrgate Donuts was a fictional made-up place….which I still think it is? But turns out LA does have a donut shop shaped like a donut (of course) which was a wonderful surprise to discover after finishing the book. This book was so imaginative and genre spanning. There were maybe one or two subplots I didn’t think we needed but I was very invested in the central relationship between the main teen violinist and her mentor. There was also a lot about this book that just felt like a big hug.
Set in Africa Remote Control
by Nnedi Okorafor (HM)
When I was reading this, I remember thinking “Wow, I love when a novella feels like it tells a story that a lesser author would have taken 1,000 pages to write, but this author only needed 100-something pages to perfect.” Unfortunately, I don’t remember much else about the reading experience, but clearly past me wanted to recommend this so….here you go!
Non-Human Protagonist Hollow Kingdom
by Kira Jane Buxton (HM)
This started off strong for me but lost me somewhere in the middle. I love the conceit of a post-apocalyptic world without humans, with a snarky crow being the main character, but after a while the snark kind of got old and I didn’t really care enough about the other animals. Someone let me know if the second book is worth reading though!
Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Fairy Tale
by Stephen King (HM)
I felt like I never knew where this book was going to go next, and I was just along for the ride. I actually really loved the beginning of the book where we’re in not NOT Maine (I think somewhere in Illinois technically?) and the book is more focused on the relationships between the characters (including a very
good dog). The second two-thirds of the book are more fantasy focused, and the world was very imaginative, but I could have spent even more time in the beginning just living with those characters.
Five SFF Short Stories Spirits Abroad
by Zen Cho (HM)
I love Zen Cho’s Sorcerer Royal
series, so I was really excited to learn that the book of short stories she had published was being reissued in the U.S. I’m not a huge short story person because I always feel like I want more
in the end from the stories, but I loved the different ideas explored in this collection. My favorite story was “The House of Aunts.”
Features Mental Health Elder Race
by Adrian Tchaikovsky (HM)
If I love a novella where the story feels vast in scope, I also love a novella that uses the form to interrogate a single idea. The story is clearly an investigation of the Arthur C. Clarke quote, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic,” and I ATE THAT UP. That’s sci-fi to me!!
Self-Published OR Indie Publisher Legends & Lattes
by Travis Baldree
Like everybody else on this subreddit, I decided to check this book out this year (before it was picked up by Tor I swear
). Yes, it’s a hug in book form. Yes, I did consider quitting my job, moving to a small town, and starting a coffee shop. Yes, I would like 10,000 sequels thank you!!!!!
Substituting Award Nominee for Gothic Fantasy (2021) The Changeling
by Victor LaValle
What can I say, every year there’s a square I just can’t seem to fill. Other stuff on my board could have fit here, it’s just the way the cookie crumbled. This was a great NYC-based gothic fantasy though.
BIPOC Author The Marrow Thieves
by Cherie Dimaline (HM)
I heard Cherie Dimaline speak on a panel last year, which got me interested in checking out one of her books. What struck me about this book was the way that Dimaline was able to tease out threads of hope and romance and found family even within the post-dreaming dystopia she’s created. I also thought the nested oral history/storytelling structure that the story is told in worked really well.
Shapeshifters Dragon's Bait
by Vivian Vande Velde (HM)
I don’t know how I never read this book in my “I want a boyfriend who also turns into a dragon sometimes” phase when I was 15… My only gripe is that it’s a bit short. Sequel?
No Ifs, Ands, or Buts Childhood's End
by Arthur C. Clarke
This is such a random choice for this square but it was honestly a bit difficult to fill after the old bingo shuffle. I’m not mad though, this book blew my mind and I’m not sure I totally understood it but wow am I still thinking about it. Is the birth of humanity into a new plane of enlightenment aspirational, or in achieving that enlightenment, does humanity lose what makes it unique?
Family Matters Lifelode
by Jo Walton (HM)
Last on the list is the first book I read for bingo! I initially read this for wibbly wobbly timey wimey, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to use a book for this square where the entire plot revolves around complicated family structures and the beauty, love, and chaos that can result from them. Not my favorite of the books I’ve read by Walton, but there’s so much that felt fresh in this novel that I’ve bumped it up a star just for sheer imagination.
2023.04.01 05:51 SirTawmis Nomad's Land - The Return of Jack Monroe.
I have always been a fan of Jack Monroe (Nomad). And I despise how he was killed off by Winter Soldier. So a few months out of boredom I wrote this... I posted it here (with images) too - http://comicreliefpodcast.com/archives/2627
It’s something we do all the time; force of habit, superstitions, memorial – whatever the reason, we all have our traditions.
My name is Bucky Barnes. I was once known, throughout history, as Captain America’s side kick, “Bucky” fighting those Nazi soldiers, such as Red Skull, who sought to destroy the world. In that war, it was believed that both Captain America – Steve Rogers – and I had perished. Steve was found, frozen alive – in suspended animation, years after the war. I had also survived, but at the cost of my arm.
I wasn’t found by American soldiers, or friendlies. I was actually found by Russians, who took me – broken as I was – and gave me a robotic arm, and made me a part of their organization. You see, surviving the explosion had also destroyed my memories. I had no idea who I was – only the muscle memory of fighting, as I’d learned to do from Captain America.
As this “Winter Soldier” – I did a lot of things. A lot of things I wasn’t proud of. For example, I blew up a part of downtown Philadelphia and then tried to frame Jack Monroe, Captain America’s other “sidekick” for it. But it wasn’t enough that I was going to frame Jack Monroe, I also shot him, in cold blood, when he was defenseless and threw him in my trunk.
It would turn out that Captain America would get a hold of the Cosmic Cube and force me to remember everything. All of my sins. All of the things I’d done.
They forgave me. Said I wasn’t in control of who I was.
That made things worse, really. I wanted to feel like I should be punished. But Steve… he was shocked… maybe happy to see me alive. But when I told him what I’d done to Jack, I saw that pain in his face. The hurt. He wasn’t close to Jack – they’d have their difference, but I know Steve had always felt like Jack was the one that Steve could never help.
I ended up taking Jack’s body and burying it at Green-Wood in Brooklyn. I’ve made it a tradition to come out here – and say I am sorry. Because in the end, Jack didn’t have anyone. He’d lost touch with Steve Rogers, lost touch with the kid he’d adopted – she now goes by Julie Winters. I’ve found her. Send them money to take care of them every month as a mysterious benefactor. I don’t want the credit. I don’t want to be known. I just want to try and make some of the things I’ve done wrong, right now.
Imagine my surprise, when I arrived today – just like I did every year, and his grave is dug up. But there’s something weird – it’s not that someone dug up this grave. It’s like whoever was inside, clawed their way out. But how can that be? I know it’s Jack that was in this grave. And I shot him point blank. He was dead when I put him in the trunk. He was dead when I buried him here. I’m certain of it.
Three Months Ago…
Where am I?
I can barely move my arms? Am I in a coffin?
Memories… like a shattered mirror. Fragments. Broken. So many reflections. So many faces. Bucky. Nomad. Scourge.
Wait. What’s the last thing I remember?
Pull yourself together.
Pick up the pieces of the mirror.
My name is Jack. Jack Monroe.
Last thing I remember – there was someone – a drug lord in town – I was drinking at the bar. Went outside. Someone said my name.
Gunned me down. Dear Lord, I am inside a coffin.
I take a deep breath – pull my arms close to my chest and push up on the roof of the coffin. It barely moves.
Then I remember Doctor Jane Foster. She said I was dying. My body was falling apart, killing itself.
How am I alive? If being gunned down didn’t kill me, then time should have finished me in.
And yet – as I push on this coffin lid, I can feel it giving way. It’s creaking. My strength had been giving out, just before I was gunned down – how is it back?
The lid finally cracks, breaks, and dirt begins pouring into the grave. It’s like swimming in concrete, digging my way out. When I finally breach, I take a deep breath of fresh air – and see I have just dug myself out of my own grave. A concrete marker reads: Here Lies Jack Monroe; A Hero The World Needed Taken Too Soon.
As I pull myself out and sit on my own grave mound, I can see someone’s come by visiting my grave. Who? Cap, maybe?
Who gunned me down?
Was it one of those drug lords?
Was I getting too close?
I brush myself off – head over to a second hand clothing store, and manage to convince the store clerk to give me some clothes. I head back to the bar – see if they have some video footage.
The bartender tells me it’s been almost two years since he’s seen me.
Have I been gone for two years?
I ask about the video footage – he says he’s not sure if he has it that far back. He comes back and gives me a drive – said it’s been recorded over, but if I am techy enough I might be able to pull something off the drive.
I just happen to have a fair share of tech, if my storage space is still good. Should be. I prepaid it for ten years – told them I needed privacy. When I got free of the “Scourge” nanites, I ended up working with the Thunderbolts – even checked up on them a little later. But I kept the equipment I’d gathered when I worked as Scourge.
Going back – I am easily able to recover the old data on this drive. It takes a few sweeps of the program – but even when it’s done – I make it do a few more scans. Because it can’t be right.
The person who shot me – he looks a lot like Bucky Barnes, Steve’s side kick who died in World War II.
But every scan tells me this is the cleanest image – I’ll be damned, Bucky Barnes tried to kill me.
Well, he did kill me.
Today… Green-Wood Cemetery…
“What the Hell is going on?”
“When you came at me, you shot me in cold blood, in the dark, no chance to even fight,” a voice calls out from the dark. “I think the bullet proof Kevlar vest may have protected me, or something else… but I am going to give you a chance to explain yourself.”
Bucky Barnes turned around, “Who?”
“You don’t recognize the man you murdered?” the voice called back.
“I’ve murdered a few people in my time,” Bucky growled, hands going to his weapon he always carried. “Care to elaborate?”
“We had something in common, you and I,” the voice calls out. “We both fought side by side next to a Captain America. You fought next to Steve Rogers, I fought along side a slightly deranged man by the name of William Burnside.”
“Jack? Jack is that you?” Bucky called out, still unable to determine where Jack’s voice had been coming from.
“Winner, winner,” Jack Monroe’s voice replied. “So why did you do it?”
“Shoot you?” Bucky called out after a moment. “Would you believe mind control?”
“Another thing we have in common,” Jack responded. “I was mind controlled, as well, once. It’s amazing what they forgive when you tell someone that you were mind controlled, right? I shot a killed a young girl named Helen Takahama – better known as Jolt, from the Thunderbolts. Turns out, she’s got something in common with you and I – looks like she came back from the dead too. Just can’t keep a good fighter down, can you?”
“So why are you here? Why are you hiding? Why all the questions?” Bucky called out, his gun drawn. “Is this revenge?”
“Revenge?” Jack’s voice called out, almost laughing. “I don’t need revenge. But the thing is, I want to test myself. I’ve been out of the game. And I’ve done some reading on you – you took over Cap’s thing after he got ‘killed’ too. You’ve done a lot – even left a new version of the Thunderbolts… see how the thread of our lives keep weaving together? So pardon me if I give you the same treatment you gave me…”
At that moment, Jack, who’d used the Pym particles he’d used with the Scourge outfit, grew to incredible size, striking Bucky with an uppercut that sent him flying. “All of my life,” Jack continued, as he slammed his fist down into the ground, barely missing Bucky, “I’ve lived in someone else’s shadow. Whether it was William’s or Steve’s. If I wasn’t living in someone’s shadow, I was being manipulated.”
Bucky fired a number of rounds from his gun; but the bullets in his gun were not the kind that would kill a target – rather the electrical pulse would trigger upon impact. One bullet was enough to down an elephant easily – six shots into the enlarged Jack Monroe, and he wasn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
“When I was struggling with myself, when I was with Steve, he’d tell me about some of the things that Pym had gone through – his own crisis of life – even how Hawkeye, for awhile lost himself – going from archer to giant man! We all are weak. It wasn’t just me.”
As Bucky got to his feet and scrambled up a tree to get a clean shot Jack, out of nowhere – a glider nearly missed him – but he was able to duck, grab the bottom and swing himself on top of it, gaining control of the glider. This, he’d recognized as the same glider that Jack had used as Scourge. Bucky leapt at Jack from the glider, but at that moment Jack reduced himself to normal size; and the two tumbled on the ground before both standing on their feet.
Bucky had his gun at Jack’s temple, but Jack had drawn a short that had been shrunk to full size and had it under Bucky’s chin.
“Don’t make me pull this trigger, Jack.”
“Don’t make me pick your brain clean with my sword, then.”
Jack withdrew the blade first just as Bucky holstered his gun.
“What was this really about?” Bucky asked.
“It really was about proving I could still fight. When I dug myself up from that grave,” he gestured to the grave that he’d dug up again, “I was still trying to piece myself together. When I got out – I found out it’d been you who shot me. I didn’t know why. But as I did my research, I knew what happened. I started following you. Learned your pattern. Knew you made it a tradition to visit the grave, when I tapped into the cemetery’s surveillance footage. I even found the footage of myself – the time I thought I was beating up drug dealers, and in my confused state of mind, turns out it was every day people. But I don’t know why or how my strength came back. How my mind feels clear again. How I became me again.”
“Let me help you,” Bucky extended his hand. “I want to help. I want to make this,” he gestured between them. “Whatever this is – I want to make it right.”
Hank Pym folded his arms across his chest as he stared at the computer read outs.
“What do you got for me, doc?” Jack asked, sitting in a chair nearby.
“As far as I can tell, Doctor Jane Foster was right,” Pym explained, pointing out some scans. “I can see here where you body seemed to be killing itself. Your immune system turned on itself. But, by the looks of it – when Bucky shot you – your body ‘died’ – but it didn’t really die. It simply shut down. As far as I can tell, between the super soldier serum that was destroying your body and the nanites – something created a very unique reaction. It literally appears as if your entire body went into a state of hibernation. The best way to describe this read out, Jack is that – your body underwent something similar to a caterpillar’s life – when they enter the cocoon stage – and during the pupa stage, the old body literally dies and a new body forms inside the protective shell known as a chrysalis. Your old body died, to make way to a new body that has adapted to all that’s been done to it, creating this new body. Your new body shows no signs of the serum at all – but you have super natural strength and agility, as we saw with the tests we’ve run.”
“So I am all cured?” Jack asked with a smirk.
“Cured, I guess, would be a way of explaining this,” Pym agreed. “I’d like to run some more tests – and test the limits of your strength and agility. It seems pretty close to Steve’s.”
“That’s all right, doc,” Jack stood up and put on his jacket. “I really don’t want to be compared to Steve anymore. I’m my own person now.”
To Be Continued?

2023.04.01 05:49 natnat131 Are the scarlet and violet English cards out?
I'm not a huge pokemon fan or collector so I'm doing this with 0 knowledge, please understand.
My friend loves pokemon cards and are looking for scarlet and violet ones. For her birthday, I'm getting her some, but she wanted English and English only. This would've been easy if I knew if or if not the English version are even out . . I've found some that I can order but there's no indication they're English or Japanese, but they look to be the English versions. I don't wanna waste money on cards that aren't in the right language so could somebody confirm for me if the English ones are out? Thanks!

2023.04.01 05:49 CreeDorofl Logical Increments 'Great'-tier build... some small screwups, but it works.
I used to build PC's regularly, but my last system was meant to be sorta 'future-proof'. The parts were good for the time, and it lasted me 9 years, so I feel like that was a success.
I wanted to build during lockdown but GPU prices sucked. My old GPU was $300, and and when I shopped around, I was shocked to see it was selling for more than I paid for it. Now it can be had used for like $70.
I want this PC to last a while. I gradually turned into one of those guys who mostly replays the same old favorites (FO, skyrim, etc)... but now that I can run good AAA titles, I will try some modern games. Maybe see what emulation is possible.
It took some troubleshooting, mostly dumb errors from being VERY rusty in PC building. Details below. Also, obligatory pics with cat tax included: https://imgur.com/a/WAadEsM PCPartPicker Part List
. . So in terms of purchasing, I dunno if I was optimal. I basically trust Logical Increments to do the homework. Their builds always work, take advantage of specials where possible, and fine tune carefully for each budget. For example, out of the 16 'tiers', this build used an AMD CPU, but most of their builds use 12th/13th gen Intel (including the tier above and below mine). I guess the R5 7600 hits some sweet spot.
It was supposed to cost $1200. But I fucked up and overbought RAM. I thought my apps used mode than they do. I do some video editing, 3D rendering, lots of photo editing, and generally just run a lot of stuff at the same time, with many chrome tabs. But I can't seem to even get to 25% RAM usage. Probably 32 GB woulda been fine (even overkill). The extra $100 should have gone to a nicer GPU.
$1400 is more than I ever spent in the past, but we're in a time of inflation and when you factor that this might last another 7-10 years, it's OK. GPU prices are finally back in line. Boring build story: I always do a breadboard. Well, it's a bit more than the bare minimum to boot. but I try to get it boot with just CPU, 1 stick of ram, and in this case GPU. The motherboard has integrated graphics but I'm not using them.
When I flipped the switch on my PSU, I got nothing, no post, and wondered if I missed a step.
Didn't panic. Reseated everything. Then I remembered you could run a wire between two pins of the CPU's main power connector, to see if it's functional. I got irritated when I realized I had no paper clips in the entire house, but biting off the ends of a twist tie works. Watch this guy with the coke nails explain the trick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfYwKPtDiw4&t=242s (4:03)
So the PSU was fine. What I finally figured out is... I needed to actually turn on the computer. I know that sounds retardedly obvious, but when I flipped on that PSU, I truly expected to see SOMEthing, a light or a "good morning" fan spin. This rig doesn't do any of that. Maybe I misremember seeing that in the past.
Anyway after using a screwdriver to bridge the motherboard's power pins, it booted right up. Got windows installed. I was a little worried that the PSU didn't include a secondary 6-pin connector for the socket next to the CPU's main 8-pin connector. But I guess that's for a beefier CPU than mine, the 6-pin connector is fine by itself.
Side rant: I hate how power connectors are WAAAAY too snug and the CPU clamp is WAAAAAY too tight. I know the CPU can't move at all or instant BSOD/shutdown/whatever. But it weighs as much as a tennis ball and sits still on a desk. It doesn't need a clamp that can hold a canoe to a roof rack. And reseating the main power connector is a huge pain in the balls. I had to break off the plastic latch/ckip and wedge a knife blade into the seam to gradually work it back out of the socket. Mountain climbers could use it instead of caribiner clips. In fact, from now on I'm breaking off that pointless plastic clip, I've never seen a main connector or molex that wasn't absurdly tight.
I got errors running an old installer for a game (one that worked fine on the old PC), which I found alarming. Googling suggested installer used a ton of ram. One smart poster said it might be sensitive not just to ram amount, but timings. I installed premiere and edited some video... BSOD. A really weird, annoying kind of BSOD: the crash screen and text appeared on top of premiere as semi-transparent, and the text was white sitting on a white background. So I couldn't read it. I got it again but this time could make out the word "memory". I was concerned I had a defective RAM stick.
I remembered a previous build problem where a PC would only boot when paired with older RAM. I theorized that was because when it detected the old ram, both sticks were forced to run at lower speed. So I went into BIOS to see what the RAM clock speed and timings looked like. It was set to "Auto" so I manually set it to the speed it's rated for, 5200, and that surprisingly worked. Every since changing that single setting, the game that failed to install like 5 times, installed fine. Premiere has never crashed since (several weeks now). So I'm pleased to have figured that out and not wasted money buying different RAM when this batch is fine. . . Parts sorta-review: At first I was at first disappointed at how the video card didn't seem to be that great. First I tried one of my simple 3D renders and it was weirdly slow. But then I found out blender not only has the option of using CPU or GPU, it has options for different API's to talk to your video card. I set it to CUDA (which is specific to Nvidia cards) and it was over 10x faster. Fallout 4 load screens sucked, but that's because load screens are tied to frame rate, which is locked at 60 fps. This mod unlocks framerates during any load screen and now it's done in seconds.
The only part I don't 100% love is the case. It's made to look as simple and minimal as possible. So they hide the power and USB connector on top instead of in front. And they only put 2 USB in front. So it's less convenient to reach and a couple of items I usually plug into the front, now go in back. It also weighs a ton, and has rubber feet, so it won't move easily when you're trying to scoot it around on the desk during the building process. There's a big flat metal strip for hiding/organizing cables but it's just in the way. Also the hard drive cage can be removed, but you gotta get underneath the case and undo two screws. My old build, simple plastic clips held the HDD's and you can just slide them into place and they'd lock. I had to remove the cage to screw them in place.
Other than that, no complaints, running smoothly, only slight concern is GPU idles at 47°C doing nothing but browsing. That seems to be a hair above the high end of normal. I never messed with fan curves or overclocking it, so I'm gonna run DDU and update to the newest driver, see if it helps. The fans apparently don't kick on until 50° but it still seems like something isn't optimal. Maybe bad case airflow.
