Some What Current News from Not News Guys…
Good morning El Moochadores! Okay, I slept in a little late, and this more like a “late-morning moo” now, but that’s okay!
Elemental Evil Returns to D&D!
As I write this, I’m thinking of our good buddy, D20, who for the last few years has been trying (mostly in vain) to get us to play Neverwinter Nights. So, Geeks of Doom reported that the free to play MMORPG, Neverwinter, will be adding “a new downloadable module from Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment. The new module will include all sorts of new player classes and raises the level cap to 70. The article also reports that Neverwinter may be coming to Xbox soon. Also, expect to see new modules for Wizard of the Coast games like Prince of Apocalypse, new miniature board games, and maybe more. Check out more information about the expansion modules at the Geeks of Doom article!
Windows 10 for Free!
Okay, calm down folks. This is Microsoft we’re talking about here. There aint noth’n free. I’m sure somewhere in here is a faustian bargain, that’ll sign over our bank accounts, privacy, and souls. However; for those of you a little less cynical that I am, The website arstechnica reported that Microsoft will be offering free versions of Windows 10 to Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 users for one year! The official announcement was made during the Microsoft Preview Event by Terry Myerson who said,
Once a device is upgraded to Windows 10, we’ll be keeping it current for the supported lifetime of the device… With Windows 10, we think of Windows as a service… The question ‘what version are you running’ will cease to make sense.
According to the arstechnica article, this is the first time Microsoft has offered an OS for free. For more information you can check out the arstechnica article here.
Okay, El Moochadores, this is my day off, so we’ll have some actual geek creative stuff to post about later today, and later on this week we’ll have book reviews and maybe (MAYBE!) and brand new Moocast.
