Destiny: The Taken King

So in between WoW, Skyrim, Diablo III and a little CoD. I play this little game called Destiny. There is a new expansion coming out called The Taken King and it looks amazing! I did read that they were taking Peter Dinklage off as the ghost companion and putting Nolan North on. Personally I love Peter as the ghost and saw no problem with him.. What is funny now!

So in between WoW, Skyrim, Diablo III and a little CoD. I play this little game called Destiny. There is a new expansion coming out called The Taken King and it looks amazing! I did read that they were taking Peter Dinklage off as the ghost companion and putting Nolan North on. Personally I love Peter as the ghost and saw no problem with him.. What is funny now! I found an interview about some of the game changes and this was said:

Polygon published this video comparing dozens of Ghost’s lines delivered by Dinklage and North, courtesy of the massive prep patch delivered to Destiny players yesterday. I wasn’t prepared to ever admit this, but I prefer good ole’ Dinklebot. By a significant margin.

HAHA oops! Anywho, I was going to post about whats new in the The Taken King:

Oryx-Kings-Fall-raid

POWERFUL NEW ABILITIES:

To battle back the Darkness and the Taken army, players will get brand new subclasses with new supers. Warlocks will now harness the power of an electric storm, Hunters will carve a bow formed from gravitational void energy, and Titans will summon a flaming hammer that can sear their adversaries from a range or deliver a devastating melee impact.

NEW CAMPAIGN:

A massive Hive Dreadnaught ship looms in the rings of Saturn. Oryx, The Taken King has arrived in our solar system, bringing with him a corrupted army to exact revenge on the Guardians who destroyed his son Crota, and to consume our worlds. Arm yourself with newfound abilities, weapons, and gear. Defeat the Taken hordes. Make your way aboard the Dreadnaught, and face Oryx himself within his inner sanctum.

NEW ACTIVITIES & REWARDS:

Adventure through new Strikes featuring powerful bosses, follow more questlines that lead to powerful, new gear and brave the next major Raid to test six-player Fireteams.

Continue leveling in Destiny and fill your arsenal with brand new weapons and armor. Find and collect new, powerful Exotics.

I guess there is a legendary edition that includes:

  • The Taken King
  • Destiny
  • Expansion I: The Dark Below
  • Expansion II: House of Wolves

Personally I can’t wait till the game comes out and get the fireteam together 🙂 I just hope they figure out the Dinklage/North problem out soon. Because I rather like Dinklage as the ghost.

Bad Move Lenovo With Superfish Software

superfish-220x169So Just found out about his earlier today. I personally owned a few Lenovo computers in the past and found myself getting rid of them. Selling to someone else or returning them to the store. They aren’t vary good and cheaply made. But I guess you get what you pay for tho. But after reading about the Superfish Software and what it does, this explains so much now on what was wrong with the computers. Yet another reason to never buy from this company again. I have added a link to download the tools to remove said Superfish program (http://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkvantage_en/metroapps/SuperFishRemovalTool/1.0.2.0/Lenovo.SuperFishRemovalTool.exe). If you wish to check it out before downloading I highly recommend it. Can never be to safe!

Superfish is a piece of software that Lenovo has admitted to pre-installing on many of its laptops to “enhance the shopping experience” of its users. However, the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team calls Superfish a “man-in-the-middle attack” because of how it “intercepts users’ web traffic to provide targeted advertisements.” Superfish snoops in on your web browsing and secretly slips ads into webpages. But the really dangerous part is that it’s pre-installed with root certificate authority, which allows it to impersonate any server’s security certificate.

If this certificate is compromised by hackers, you could be tricked into logging in to a fake website and giving hackers your password. Because of Superfish, any of your accounts—including encrypted bank accounts—could be easily compromised. Superfish has been pre-installed by Lenovo. Therefore, restoring your computer to factory condition from either a backup partition or a backup DVD will not solve the problem if Superfish is also part of your backup. Superfish would only be reinstalled, too. So if you ever use a backup to restore your system, you may need to again remove Superfish and its root security certificate from your system.

To remove the Superfish program and its certificate from your computer, use this free tool from Lenovo: (Link)

2014 In Review For Nerdy Life Of Mine

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
