If the displayed CPU frequency percentage drops below about 80-85% then you may have a problem with your CPU slowing down due to overheating. If it drops below 50-55% then you may have a serious problem. CPU overheating can be caused by overclocking, insufficient cooling, insufficient airflow, failing or dirty fans, or other causes.

If you’re planning on playing some ArcheAge tonight, you might want to have a back-up plan in place. Queue times on some servers have been exceeding 2-3 hours of wait time, and there’s no signs that the wait will be shortening in the next few hours. I’m coming up on the three hour mark as I type this, and still approximately another 49 minutes to go. Don’t make the same mistake I did! A little pro-tip for you if you’re already in-game, or get in soon. DO NOT log back out into the character select screen. While I’m sure there are folks who have done so with no problems, there is a known bug where no characters will show up, leaving you with no choice but to restart the client or go back to server select, which will put you back in the queue. Luckily it looks like there is a spot-save feature implemented if the game crashes, allowing you to jump right back in within a few minutes of crashing, but no such luck with that little character select screen bug. I had actually gotten into ArcheAge fairly quickly earlier in the day, but following a game crash, all my keybindings had been reset. My bright idea once I got back in was to re-do all my keybindings, then log out to character select so that they would save, just in case the client crashed again. That’s when I ran face-first into the no character bug, and now I’m waiting…and waiting…and waiting. Good luck logging in! The bright side is that ArcheAge appears to be very popular, so hopefully all this waiting is a good sign for the game, and a positive for its longevity.

It sounds weird to type out those words: play with your friends while they are offline. And to be honest, it is a bit creepy what Age of Wushu is doing in its next expansion. When your friends are offline, you can continue to play with their characters as companion NPCs. The update post explains it. “Players going offline can allow themselves to be available as Companions for those clever and committed enough to earn their loyalty.” While offline, these players can receive special rewards from their online brothers in arms, and in exchange are available to be summoned to their aid during a fight.” That’s a bit better… at least there’s consent. If you’d like the get the full scoop on the Age of Wushu update Winds of Destiny, you can head over to the official website to see what’s in store for you in October.
Tragedy has struck the friends and family of a 28-year-old gamer from Georgia named Daniel John Zeitz, known to his gamer friends online as Phobos, after he was shot and killed by a 16-year-old girl as she and her boyfriend attempted to steal the victim’s PS4, according to The Huffington Post. The unnamed 16-year-old and her boyfriend, 20-year-old Nathaniel Vivian, had contacted Zeitz through Craigslist about purchasing his PS4. When the couple met the victim in an apartment complex parking lot around 9:30pm for the exchange, Vivian attempted to pull the PS4 into the car. Zeitz resisted, and that’s when the 16-year-old shot him. The bullet went through her boyfriend’s hand and hit Zeitz in the chest, killing him. The girl’s 16-month-old baby was reportedly in the back seat of the vehicle the couple were sitting in when the incident occurred. The couple was later arrested after seeking medical attention for Vivian’s hand at an area hospital. Vivian originally claimed to be the victim of a crime, before confessing to the attempted robbery and shooting. Vivian was arrested, and the unnamed girl was taken into custody as a minor. Zeitz’s online friends and teammates have started a GoFundMe page to help the victim’s family with expenses, and the site has currently raised nearly $16k. K.L. Smith is one of Zeitz’s online teammates and friend, who along with helping set up the GoFundMe page, posted the video below: [Images courtesy: Huffington Post]
Doom is a classic. I still remember playing that and dying over and over again, but if I were to play it now, I’d probably be disgusted by its graphics. But modder Gamerhacker updated the game to work in the Doom 3 engine. Of course, it could have been made smoother if recreated in another engine, but comparatively, it does look amazing. Watch the video. If you like it, you can download the whole Doom Reborn mod on ModDB.

If you haven’t attained your Legendary Cloak yet, you better get on it. Blizzard has announced that as part of the transition to Warlords of Draenor, the quest line will be seeing changes in preparation to bring it to a close. Once the quest line is closed, that’s it… no more chances for your own Legendary Cloak. The good news here is that the WoW team has decided to extend the Gaze of the Black Prince buff in order to help those who have not obtained their cloak do so.
No… We mean it. They really deserve to die. You might be inclined to feel sorry for them. But don’t. This seemingly cute little society of blobs is under attack by a strange blue substance. It’s wiping them out of existence. And they deserve every bit of it. Directed by Chris Bovill and John Allison of Nexus as an ad for Stand Up 2 Cancer, a group dedicated to raising funds to help back research and save lives.
