      Update 5: Infinite Wisdom is here!   10/05/2017

        Hey everyone, We’re back with another update that really mixes some stuff up. An entirely new challenging mode, a rebalance of the entire game to go with the rework of the new leveling progression numbers, ability to do the co-op intro online, faster PVP rounds, language translations and more! With the rebalance you’ll find that your fighters are dealing even more damage as they gain experience. All balance changes are retro-active meaning you do not have to worry about starting over or starting new characters in order to experience that – they’re all dynamically applied to what you already have! Feel free to check out what we’ve changed in the list below, and as always – please leave us feedback about anything you find noteworthy. As always, the main Story (although not included in this update) is being developed alongside all these improvements we have been releasing. Check out our blog for the full changelist: http://blog.thebehemoth.com/2017/09/28/update-5-infinite-wisdom-is-here/

      Pit People's Final Touches   11/21/2017

      It has been nearly a year since we launched Pit People on early access. This journey has been an incredible experience! We’ve built a better game thanks to all your feedback. So here’s a spicy little situation: We’ve decided that our next big drop will be the FULL version of the game! Yes, it shall be complete! You’ll be able to play through the story and find out what happens for everyone.  
        As we write this, we’re working on the last of the cinematics for the story campaign! This is the final push towards completing the game, alongside additional story quests and a new world map with bonus missions.
        Since there’s so much involved with these last steps (VO, animation, level creation, music licensing, QA testing, etc), we’re not exactly sure when everything will line up for a full release date, but we’re shooting to release within the first few months of 2018.
        Thank you again to all of the people who’ve been playing Pit People during early access and to everyone who has been sending us feedback. It has truly been invaluable and we can’t wait to share the conclusion of Pit People with you all!

Switching over to a Mac (Maybe)?

Recommended Posts

So yeah, there's a good chance that I can finally abandon this POS machine. But I've been looking into Apple's Computers, namely the Mac.

Their OS kinda has me wondering about it.

Any advice, reasons to or not to switch, and some experience with Mac?

Unlike my superior knowledge of windows, macs are somewhat foreign to me.

(And I'm looking at Mac notebooks)

My problem with Macs are the lack of compatibility.

Sure, you can run Windows programs on them with virtual machines, but it's still extra work.

Also, keep in mind that many accessories aren't compatible with Mac, so if you plan on getting a lot of third party stuff, you might have trouble.

I've heard that Macs are better for creating art, music, etc.

Macbooks are also good for college, because of they tend to have good battery life and such. Plus they rarely get viruses.

Macs are generally more expensive and not as good for gaming.

If you plan on gaming a lot, I'd stick with PC.

iMac or Macbook?

--------------

I never got used to my iMac's mouse.

I was looking moreso at the Macbooks.

And I understand that Macs aren't necessarily good for gaming or using programs in general, but it's time I try something different (and still use windows for the occasional gaming/whatnot thanks to bootcamp and virtualization software. :3)

Also if they really are better for artsy stuff and productivity then this'll definitely carry me onto college when the time comes.

The thing about macs is that they're overpriced for the kit inside.

I personally don't like OSX, but the universal constant is that you're going to pay more for an OSX laptop than a W7 based one.

They're ridiculously overpriced, they're generally horrible for gaming, they crash a lot (For me, at least. And I've been on a lot of Macs.), they're aren't at all fun to use, and they're not compatible with a lot of things I've tried to get working with them (Including my tablet, making that Graphic Design camp I signed up for rather difficult.)

They're fairly difficult to navigate because they try too hard to be super-organized and their little search thing doesn't work for poop.

They are some good things about Macs though, but I can't think of any at all right now.

So, in case it was somehow not implied, I really don't suggest getting a Mac.

I got an Alienware gaming computer for the price of a really cheap Mac. I added a bunch of stuff onto it, but the original price was actually cheaper (minus the shipping cost) than that Mac Mini thing or whatever I saw on their site.

They are overpriced and it will take you some time to get used to them, if you need something to use right away i wouldn't buy it.

But if you feel like spending money randomly to see if you're gonna like it then that's up to you

I'm guessing you're right.

But the thing is I'm actually not buying it. I'm getting it as a gift, so I won't know exactly what I'll be getting.

But yeah I see Alienware somehow got extremely cheaper.
