[OPINION] Reality TV Cooking Shows Suck!

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/01/16/a ... s-kitchen/


Acclaimed chefs Alice Waters and Jacques Pepin appreciate that television has brought the joy of cooking to the masses. But they decry the barrage of culinary competition shows such as “Top Chef,” “Hell’s Kitchen” and “Chopped,” claiming they are doing a “disservice.”

“That’s not what’s cooking is all about,” Pepin told reporters at the Television Critics Association Press Tour. “Cooking is about being together, about love and sharing … That kind of confrontation that you have there is not really how you learn to cook, or how you understand food.”

I couldn't agree more! TV shows like this are ruining the cooking community.

J2 Unreal Tournament hub now online!


Joe.to now has a Unreal Tournament hub server!

Epic Games is developing a new Unreal Tournament and releasing it for free. It is currently in early alpha stages, and we figured this is a great time to get in on the fun.

Visit https://www.unrealtournament.com/ to sign up for an Epic Games account, and to download the launcher. The download is about 4GB, but expands closer to 10GB.

You can find the J2 hub by using the "Find a Match" feature on UT's main menu; look for "Joe.to Unreal Tournament Hub"
From the J2 hub, you can join a game in progress, chat with whoever's currently online, or start your own game instance on our server.
Our hub currently has a max of 6 simultaneous matches and 64 players. We'll see how that goes and adjust as necessary.

System Requirements:
  • Windows 7 64-bit or Mac OS X 10.9.2 or later
  • Dual-core Intel or AMD processor, 2.5 GHz or faster
  • DirectX 11 compatible GPU (assuming 1-2 GB VRAM)
  • 8GB RAM
  • ~10 GB free space

J2 Planetside 2 Redux


If you want to play a game with J2 but are tired of Team Fortress 2, consider playing Planetside 2 with us! We attempted a J2 outfit when the game first launched, but the game wasn't optimized well at that time and many players drifted off. The game's dev team spent a year optimizing the game which resulted in significant playability improvements for the average player. Recently, Parasyte has been able to round up a decent group of J2 regulars to join the fun, and the more of us that play, the more fun we can have together.

The Joes of War
SERVER: Emerald (previously Matherson, but the server merged with Emerald)
FACTION: Vanu Sovereignty

We now have enough active players in the outfit for a decent platoon (2-4 squads of up to 12 players each). We've been playing mostly in the evening hours and using Mumble for voice. If you would like an invite to the outfit, just send a request to Parasyte or Why (aka: FakenEh in-game). Depending on response here, Parasyte would like to put together a crash course night for some of the newer people to learn the basics as a group.

From the site: PlanetSide 2 is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online first-person shooter that delivers truly epic, massive combat on a scale never before seen in stunning, breathtaking detail.

Join one of (3) factions and battle for control of bases, towers and world resources over (4) unique continents. Each faction has a different look and unique benefits to their weapons/vehicles.

Below are some good gameplay videos that will give you an idea of the shenanigans you can get into:

Current Minimum System Requirements:
  • OS: Windows XP
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 or higher / AMD Phenom II X2 or higher
  • Memory: 4 GB Installed RAM
  • Hard Drive: 15 GB free
  • Video Memory: 256 MB RAM
  • Video Card: nVidia GeForce 8600 series or higher / AMD or ATI 4850 series or higher
  • Sound Card: DirectX compatible

Current Recommended System Requirements:
  • OS: Windows 7
  • Processor: Intel i5 processor or higher / AMD Phenom II X6 or higher
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Hard Drive: 15 GB free
  • Video Memory: 1,024 MB RAM
  • Video Card: nVidia GeForce 500 series or higher / AMD HD 6870 or higher
  • Sound Card: DirectX compatible

  • SCALE - This isn't a typical FPS; these are huge, open worlds with multiple battles occurring across the different continents simultaneously. A single battle could involve hundreds of players.
  • DIVERSITY - There are options for every playstyle (infantry, vehicles, aircraft).
  • TEAM PLAY - This is not an FPS for you solo players. The key to increasing rank quickly and having a good time is finding a good squad or platoon to play with.
  • FREE TO PLAY - Some people complain that the game is pay-to-win, but that is not true. There is a store where you can buy weapons, but EVERYTHING that affects gameplay can also be obtained through playing the game and earning in-game certification points (certs). The store is predominantly for camouflage skins, hood ornaments and other cosmetic items.
  • PRETTY - It really is a surprisingly good looking game, especially considering the scale.
  • COMPLEXITY - There is a bit of a learning curve, but it's mostly just overcomplicated by the game UI. They've made some improvements here, but it's still easy to be overwhelmed while trying to do something as simple as choosing a spawn location.
  • BALANCE - Giving each faction different benefits (power vs accuracy vs speed) sounds cool in theory, but it makes the game difficult to balance across the board. Because of this, there are several weapons and vehicles that just seem overpowered. However, the dev team has done well to continually release content updates and balance patches to resolve issues.
