Finally got a ps5, I didnt think i wanted one but i was finally able to get one so i did. This games was one of the reasons why. I still own tons of ps4 games and they all run even better on the ps5. And i really want to play the next god of WAR.. Plus i still play COD and R6 and they run amazing on the ps5. PC and ps5 will be my gaming path forward. Now if only I can find a video card are the msrp price, i was thinking an AMD rx 6800..
So far i love the ps5. Everything runs great on it. Dual Sense is the best hardware controller ever, i especially notice in on cold war. Now i need to sell more records to pay help pay for the $70 games yikes.
Caliber is free and on Windows 10. Mouse and Keyboard only. Warning, This is an update. I have since stopped playing Caliber because the North American Servers are dead, and that is the only game as an american you can get a low enough ping to compete without being shot behind walls. So the only games you can play are against Russians on Russian servers, who have been playing the game for almost 2 years. Its not pretty.
Caliber is like Siege and Confrontation had a baby. It has tight gunplay like r6, and 3rd person like socom 4, but plays more like Confrontation. Some say old ghost recon but the game modes are more like Socom. Is this a replacement for socom? NO but it is scratching my itch for a new ps5 Socom game.
One bad thing is that you have to play story missions until you are level 4 to see the socom like experience. So do not give up until you play to level 4, because that is when the real game begins. The other bad thing is if you don’t play in russian servers, you might have to wait a long time to get into a match but if you can get a team of 4 together, you can zoom fast into matches on the north american servers. Just not super late at night.
There are character classes, but you do not need them to win like many complainers claim, If you level up the stock characters, you can wreck anyone if you are good and play as a team.
What i love about the game, is the characters, and the strategy of the game, you have to manage your stamina because it is tied to your super abilities, and your ability to run. Assault class has most stamina, then support, then sniper, then medic. You have to reload after rounds at reload stations that are timed but are plenty around each map. Unlocking characters by grinding can take a long time.
The pay system is expensive. But i think that is because it is in the beta and this is a free game and they have to fund it some how, and not a lot of people are playing it yet, and they are not on a huge distributor who runs ads for them. So right now this is a word of mouth game. I do not blame them at all for how expensive coins are. I hope they do make things cheaper in the future though.
I can play this game over and over just like i did with Socom and R6 siege. The aiming is tight, I have a i9 9900k with a radeon rx 580, 16gb system ram and m2 drive. This game in 1080p on my system is getting about 100 frames a second. That is with my old video card too which is comparable to a rtx 1060.
You must play as a team and use coms, we usually rock Discord chat with our teams. This helps a lot, but you can talk in game with the G button if you have a headset. I play mostly as Medic. As i do in Battle field 4. Or Doc and finka in r6. I love tactile shooters and Caliber just might be the best playing Strategic Shooter I have ever played. I think it is more fun than Siege and Socom. Maybe because it is new. But really this is it! The Game Mechanics are tight and spot on.
I give it a 8 out of 10 for Russians, and 5 out of 10 For Americans.. I will update my score once the game is released. I just hope they make items in the game Cheaper.

My favorite Siouxsie LP is The Tinderbox. I love the guitar work so much on it. I love when the song breaks down, and this is the kind of guitar work i love to play the most when I write. Mesmerizing. They don’t make music like this anymore… I got into Siouxsie way after the cure, in my late 20s, as to where i was into the cure when i was much younger.
When I was growing up i used to see devo videos all the time on my local pbs station. This music was a huge influence on me when i was younger, and i preferred Devo to Kraftwerk any day of the week. This was the American Kraftwerk.
They had a Vhs video thing that was was amazing that i watched a lot too. The singer also was part of the Church of the Sub Genius. I used to drop acid and watch that.
This is the band that actually made VAC start more than any other. This idea that with a drum machine you could basically do anything. I still love the old Sisters, up to floodland. After floodland I could care less. This was the sound track to my teen years. And the first Alternative band I was ever exposed to. Old VAC was all bases on the DR 660 drum machine. I still use sounds from this drum machine now.
The sisters are not goth, they are the sisters. They are loved by goths but also appeal to people outside goth culture. Much like the cure is not goth, they are the cure.
Ahhhh, Curve, a band that is so under rated and I still listen to it to this day.
We tried to get The singer of this band to sing to slut. Ahhh so close but fell through, oh i wish it hadnt… Even though it was still one of our biggest hits..
I saw this video when i was on acid with an X from a long long time ago when i used to wear skirts and have huge goth hair… Oh those old days, the beginning days of VAC. And believe it or not Curve was a BIG influence on us.
Yay, got the se02, Pro-1, and a bunch good software, massive x, spire, arturia 8, dune 3, and lots more. Working on new songs, drums with battery and outboard quadraverb gt and gsp5 should get me into that old VAC sound nicely. Picked up a akai MIDImix Control Surface(to control and program my soft synths, and it didn’t work just like the korg nanokontrol2, those are for abelton)). Got Vaccinated, first shot, will get second shot in 20 days, I hope shows will happen this fall. If not then i hope in 2022. I miss playing shows more than anything, and our time touring for Ora Oblivionis got cut short Sadly because of covid.
I think I will be streaming newer ps4 and ps5 games more than PS3 games. Not many new games really make me happy at the moment, not sure if I will have a ps5 this year 🙁
I am working on Patreon content and post old stuff to my YouTube. I want to get more watch hours on my YouTube account so I can monetize my YouTube. I thought about a twitch channel, but honestly I do not just want to stream games and YouTube is a better fit for the vast sorts of media i need to publish.
Cyberpunk, COD, Some new stuff, HOBO SOCOM aka last of us factions online. Some new game, just testing my capture device and obs which is rendering video with my amd radeon rx 580 and not the i9. I didnt sleep well the past few nights, going to bed early. I also spent a lot of time programing the deepmind 12d and falling in love with it again… 🙂 So i have a barp 2600 huge mono synth, se02 huge mono with presets and the deepmind 12d with 3rd part sound banks that sound amazing and make it sound even better than the ob6 on most types of sounds. the built in fx are amazin..
This is one of my first streams, i was figuring what settings to use and how to configure obs. How to tour discord, my mic, and use a mic for ps3. a bit complicated. I will be streaming Wildlands, Rainbow 6 Siege, And Cold War, and Modern Warfare. Plus single player games. I wish I had figured this out last year. But i finally got a capture device and figured out obs more. Cool. I will be making a schedule for streaming. I’ll post it here soon.
Do not buy digital content anymore, because Sony thinks it can just shut it down once its old, so all that money you poired into their digital store is for nothing. I really hope sony comes to the senses, because This is some serious bullshit. You do not give us backwards compatible games in the ps5, then you shut down the digital stores for ps3 and vita and psp. WTF. If you do this. I will never buy anything Sony again. I am not joking.
