FIST Gaming Network #3
Dark Brotherhood News - Spring is Here
In the Northern hemisphere spring has arrived, well except here in NYC where we got hit with a big snowstorm and expecting more snow this weekend. So yeah it happens but no matter what gaming and gaming news continues to flow.
This month we have had a few big releases with a new Tom Clancy game and the new Mass Effect game coming soon and the new Nintendo Switch released not too long ago. It’s already the fastest selling console in history (as per super nintendo chalmers) let’s just hope it does better than the WII U.
News for Gamers
- As always you should read the latest FIST Report. Besides announcing a nice upgrade to the Fistbot (Thanks James!) the biggest news is the opening of 2 FIST magistrate positions open to applications. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to spread their wings outside of their clan. Go read Drac’s report for the details and remember the DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS MARCH 21ST!
This month we have a “few” members “excited” over some soon to be released games. Like a game called Mass Effect: Andromeda which is fully released next Tuesday March 21st. This game doesn’t follow directly after ME 3 but it’s a offshoot story that takes place in the Andromeda galaxy.
For our Diablo 3 fans Blizzard dropped a update on the upcoming Necromancer he is not part of a expansion but more of a content update. Price and release date are coming soon (™). Coming even sooner then the necro will be Season 10 and Patch 2.5.0 which will add a Armory to store up to 5 Character builds, a extremely useful crafting UI, Adventure mode changes and the introduction of Primal Ancient items!
In Overwatch Competitive Season 4 has already started and comes with some Skill rating and Respawn changes as well.
