Paragon Pixie of Doom

Paragon‘s Open Beta has not been kind to Stephen Oravec. Though most matches have been losses, there have been some victories as well. The following three clips are from two of those victories and illustrate just how cool and fun the Fey, dubbed the Paragon Pixie of Doom, is to play in this amazing new MOBA from Epic Games!

We’ve Returned To Streaming

Last night, we returned to video game streaming on Twitch with Harmacy TV. Stephen Oravec took the Cablepunk Press Paragon account from level 1 to 6 with a couple bot batches during the game’s Bonus XP Weekend.

Unfortunately, the stream was laggy, and we will have to broadcast at even lower graphics settings than last night for the future. Our NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti has been a great graphics card, but it really is starting to show its age.

We highly recommend taking a look at the new MOBA Paragon from Epic Games, makers of the Unreal Engine. It’s currently in paid early access/closed beta but goes into free-to-play open beta for PC and PS4 on August 16th!

Pokémon GO Meetup In Fremont

This past Tuesday, we held a Pokémon GO meetup at Spiegel Grove, the site of the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center, in Fremont, Ohio. Though members of all teams were invited, only a few members of Team Instinct showed up.

With five lures down, we managed to attract a bunch of Pidgeys and Weedles (surprise!) but also a couple Nidoran♂, a high CP Eevee, and a Haunter!

The lures were a success as we got to meet and chat with other Pokémon GO players from the area, most of whom were on Team Instinct as well. Consequently, the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center Pokémon Gym switched colors from Blue to Yellow while we were there.

Thank you to everyone who made it this past Tuesday!

More Reviews!

Happy Groundhog Day!

Last month, two more reviews for SYRENKA were posted on Amazon.

The first reviewer wasn’t very happy with the ending of SYRENKA and gave it 2.5 stars although Amazon registered it as three. While we can appreciate that not everyone is into dark fairy tales, Stephen Oravec’s retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s THE LITTLE MERMAID is openly and admittedly dark in its book blurb on Amazon. Readers looking for a Disneyesque happy ending will not find it here, and we would argue Oravec’s ending isn’t nearly as depressing as Andersen’s.

The second reviewer rated SYRENKA five stars and offered an analysis of the mood and moral of the story. We appreciate all reviews, but we are particularly happy with this reviewer’s willingness to inspect the depth of Oravec’s retelling of Andersen’s tale.

We hope you get a chance to read SYRENKA sometime soon, and we’d love to hear what you think!
