For the whole month, my wife and I drive around furniture stores in search of a sofa, bed, table and chairs, someday I will report everything to you about this pain. In the meantime, the traditional selection of things, phenomena, games, books – by the way, the series “Consultant” is very good, where Christoph Waltz plays the winner of corporate children.
Company of Heroes 3
Two thoughts: the most interesting thing here is the multiplayer, so you will need the entire “single” just to warm up before the real deal. Well, when you go through a single, immediately set the maximum or pre-maximum difficulty. Otherwise, you will not burn with anger at the AI fifth point, and playing RTS without such feelings is somehow stupid.
In general, the good old sandbox, updated graphics, the main thing was not touched. The strategic mode is cool. Well, thanks.
Another point is related to the purchase of the game. I found a person on Plati.ru who just sends CoH3 as a gift to Steam – yes, it turns out a little more expensive, but everything is extremely effective. I will leave you a link.
Stone Island and New Balance 574
Since I am one of the oldest “groan” fans in Rus’, it is simply not possible to pass by the release. I ordered sneakers for a friend, I’m waiting with all my might.
I want to shake hands with everyone involved in the remixes of Soviet pop songs, I also want to shake hands with everyone responsible for the visual – and in general, I didn’t believe in Atomic Heart, but it turned out to be a cool game, I pass with pleasure. Now I’m trying to enter VDNKh with the help of Tereshkova, I’m just waiting for the moment when I turn on the Xbox and dive again – I can find fault with the major’s abuse, but nothing sags, the fights are interesting, the music is super, I like to PLAY.
Let me remind you that Xbox Game Pass helps a lot, you just need to change the region, and then Atomic Heart becomes available for download without any problems at all. On the Xbox Series X, the graphics are not bad, although sometimes the hero gets stuck in textures, there are friezes, once the game crashed. I don’t want to choke either – most likely, all questions will be solved with the help of updates.
By the way, do you also really like the music when you dig into Eleanor?
Sony Float Run
Sony experimental headphones for runners with speakers located far from the ears – muddied for review, I really want to try and tell you. I foresee the conclusions that, most likely, the thing will turn out to be strange: Sony still lives in some kind of its own world, where periodically it is necessary to release audio accessories in incredible shapes and forms. I hasten to remind you, for this we love Sony.
The only reason why Returnal is in the selection is that the game is available on PS Plus, and I quickly downloaded it and tried it. I read in reviews that it is similar to Control – after all, I personally liked Control much more, I spent a lot of time in that universe. Well, Returnal is a good thing for a breather between Atomic Heart and trying to beat the chemist in the DMZ. This is when there is time for games at all. And there is no time.
Sony PS VR2
I try not to touch the damn thing, because I’m not friends with virtual reality – I don’t suffer from seasickness on ships, but miracles immediately begin in a helmet. Colleagues say that for the money the solution is top, we are waiting for HL: Alyx (probably we will not wait).
IMR R2 Aten
These headphones were given to my friend (Thanks Yolenzo!), I couldn’t wear it, in the end we gave up on AirPods 3. I use it with the iBasso DX240 player, it turns out very well! The fact is that the small company IMR allows you to “tune” the headphones literally on the fly: filters change here that change the sound of low and high frequencies. There are just a lot of filters in the kit, dozens of customization options. You ask: well, is it lazy, probably, to screw in and out the filters? Yes, I tell you, very lazy! But when there is nothing to do, this is a good micromotor training. I really like the sound of the headphones, but I don’t know if everyone will be ready to do tuning.
Intel NUC 13 Extreme
So far, the point is, Intel showed the next version of the NUC – and, to be honest, this is the strangest “nuke” in the entire history of observations. After all, what are these computers good for? They are compact, they are a little crazy, they have their own fan community, they are definitely not for everyone, and they are very cool. And what do we see in the Intel NUC 13 Extreme? Well, in appearance it is already a rather big system unit.
The explanation is very simple: now you can put a three-slot video card, previously only two-slot video cards were placed in the NUC. Hence such a dramatic change in appearance – all for the sake of space, all for the sake of cooling. You may ask: what about the iconic skull, did it remain on the case? It didn’t stay on the case, but it is on one of the boards. And this is good! I really like the baby, we will try to get it and tell more.
All of you probably use stepladders – change a light bulb, get something from a high shelf, wipe dust on a cabinet, but you never know what tasks can be. I also use a stepladder, and they are all moderately terrible. Or they look dumb, or they unfold crookedly, or they creak terribly. But all these problems are a thing of the past with an inexpensive Kartell stepladder for 35 thousand rubles. The perfect thing. Adore.
“Armored ships”, Alexey Ivanov
I just started reading, so I’ll limit myself to the official summary:
In 1918, the “founders” in Samara, Trotsky in Nizhny Novgorod, the rebels of Izhevsk, and the Chekists in Perm acquired river fleets. And the engineering revolution was raging in the world, when steam engines competed with diesel engines, and the struggle between the leaders of oil production – the British concern Shell and the Russian company of the Nobel brothers – imperiously invaded the Russian confrontation between the reds and the whites.
The war was waged by people, technology, and capital. In the bloody and fiery whirlwind, the rivermen turned out to be either red or white. They were forced to shoot at their comrades in the main business of life, they were forced to sink steamships – the glory and pride of the river fleet. How to keep a conscience in the midst of a disaster? How to protect those whom you love, who trusted you? How to protect progress, which is indifferent to social battles? There, on the decks of river tugs, the captains were looking for an honest way to the future, and the little man became stronger than the huge and mighty ship.
So far I really like it!
Birkenstock x Fear Of God
If Birkenstock collab with Gucci, then my collection will be replenished with two pairs at once! In the meantime, I ordered a work of art created with Fear Of God.
Light music “Electronics E1-04M”
Thanks to Ilya Kichaev, showed me the supermarketwhere you can buy a restored Rigonda radiogram, just like in childhood, and this is a thrill – they even add Bluetooth here!
BUT! There I suddenly discovered a real dream: the light music “Electronics”. Magic thing! I want to buy from the guys in the store (the price bites) or buy at Avito and try to restore it myself.
And that is all! I wish you happiness, Siberian health and good luck. See you in the next collection!
