…that something is amiss with the hat drop rate since the Team Fortress 2 Hallowe’en Special. The Geek Escape has three accounts running almost 24/7 in our Achievement Idle server; since the September 2nd update we’ve been getting around one hat every other day between us. Since Halloween, we’ve gotten five, about a third of the usual. Random it may be, but drops feel more like before the hat increase was implemented.
EDIT: It’s November 30th, and we just got another hatless hat. Counting the Demo fro, the “bald” caps make up only ten percent of all the hats but currently make up 25 percent of ours. I hate hatless hats and they all suck.
I came across this 2 1/2 minute anime short in the course of my daily browsing and throughly enjoyed it. While watching it, the old Looney Tunes cartoons came to mind. If nothing else, you can get your daily recommended pantsu.
Since we’ve had this website, there were games that I completed but never really wrote about. I always fully intended to do a write up on each of them, but for one reason or another, didn’t. I would like to do a series of very quick write ups about each of them, the first being Mass Effect.
Mass Effect is a game developed by BioWare, which was released in November of 2007. There was some controversy about the game in part due to the possible girl on alien girl scene which is sad as it had little to do with the story.
Let’s start with the customization. While you play a character named Commander Shepard, you can play either as a male or female character. You choose some of your back history but character appearance is where the customization is deep. There are some facial presets but for those who want more control of character looks, there are many sliders for specific adjustment.
