The gaming and Youtube community is suddenly a buzz about news regarding a decision made by the Yogscast (one of the largest networks of Youtube game commentators who's video views measure in the millions). They have announced a new program known as YogDiscovery. I will post the details of this program at the end so reader can come to their own informed decision regarding this program as is described direct from the Yogscast hosting this change. Before that though I will give you my feelings on the situation and where MstSage Entertainment stands on the issue.

Hearthstone - Priests Need a Nerf?
Hearthstone - Priests Overpowered?
This has been a discussion between Rek and I for sometime. At one point I didn't believe him because I overlooked a simple card Divine Spirit used in conjunction with Inner Fire. The concept is increase the creatures health and switch it to it's attack. This works quite well with several creatures including Gurubashi Beserker. They just synergise well, now combine that with your Power Word Shield and Lesser Heal, you are unstoppable save for instakill spells. Now here's the kicker you can push even further if you have Lorewalker Cho, as you can constantly keep getting your Divine Spirits recasting them along with Inner Fire. This would work well on him actually, as you would just keep increasing his health exponentially. Now this does however cap out around a million or so and your creature will then kill itself.
Twitch Latest in DDoS Attack
Last night everyone was having problems with Twitch.tv especially when it came to watch your streams. As of Right now Twitch.tv is back up but they were apparently targeted by the "Lizard Squad" group. The Lizard Squad group has been targeting Battle.net, the Playstation Network and Riot's League of Legends. It would be no srprise if they where involved in the recent downed Charter Internet.
The Elder Scrolls Online - Going Free To Play?

State of MstSage Entertainment March 7, 2015
Ok I know I planned to do these monthly and things have gotten hectic for me. First off I would like to state, we have some interesting updates. The sagewiki portion is still apart of the website, and is needing editors to post guides and updates. Next we have our forums where you guys can post discussions to each other whether it's game design, anime, gaming or tv or just whatever. This the place for you, if you have a question go ahead and ask it.
We still have SageSocial and a new feature, we added recently SageChat which is similar to facebook chat, if you are logged in you can chat with other users are online, currently it set to every user. Eventually it will be set to specifically those on your friends list. The reviews sections is next up, what have we got there? Well I fixed the review images to be the correct ones (since we lost the original ones). I also finished revieing games that have been on our list for sometime. Don't worry you can log in and add your own reviews and games, an admin will still have to approve it of course, Though any user can creat new reviews and what not, this is also the same with news articles. Do you have something interesting you want to share, something about the entertainment world bugging you and need a forum to vent. Write up a news article, and an admin will read through it and approve/make edits if needed.
SageStream has been fixed correctly, with the twitch chat as a module in the right side. We are also proud, to announce we are hosting the Achikat Stream under our media. It is in the same format, as Sage stream so if you want to watch on our site and chat with either of us you can. Don't forget you will still need to be logged into twitch in order to chat in the Twitch Chat. On this note I will be setting up a new twitch schedule soon so you will know what times I will be streaming!
Computer Build of the Month - April
Well it's been a while, I originally wanted to do a PC build of the month for some time. I tried to start one on our Facebook page while waiting for the website to get up and going and it didn't do so well. However here is our first official PC Build of the Month. This is of course one from my own personal opinion. This is going to be an AMD Build for those Intel Fan boys out there, we may do one in the future for you. To start off, this is semi based off my current build and upgrade plans. It has been tested and works out quite well.
State of MstSage Entertainment, July 30, 2015
Well it's been, a bit since theres been an update (just been a little busy) So here are a few updates I am changing the wiki, around a bit so it will be offline. I may decide to completely get rid of it. As there are many other guide sites. On top of this we have been busy keeping up with some devlopment of a few projects here within MstSage Entertainment that we hope you will enjoy. We will give you more info as it comes available.
While the forums, need updating to a new version, I have not done this yet, as I want to make sure everything is compatible with the bridge before I do so. Another reason I stopped with the wiki for now is It is a huge project that just isn't ready when we don't have the followers yet. So as of right now the site consists of News, Reviews, Forums, and Media (Twitch and youtube) and SageSocial (our social community).
The thing we need to do is stick together as a community, how to help us is to register on the site, post your own user reviews for Games, Movies, and TV Shows (It is not just by the admins). Post i nthe Forums for discussion, and use the SageSocial. You can connect with your Facebook account and use that to sign in. Remember to share and post on our site!
Windows 10, My Thoughts So far
So Windows 10 was released yesterday around midnight (July 29, 2015) I know some people are still waiting on there downloads. Some are wanting to know is it worth it to upgrade? Will my programs still work? What are the benefits of Windows 10?
Well to be honest there are many benefits to Windows 10, first and foremost it gets rid of the horrendous Windows 8 or 8.1 and brings back the familiar Start Menu. Cortanna is somewhat useful however I have a hard time getting her to do what I want and have never much been into the whole voice to computer. As for my gaming experience, do my apps and programs still work. Yes for the most part they still do, I had an issue with installing my Catalyst Control Panel and Drivers for my 290s. I believe it has more to do with my hard drives then it does Windows 10 (I have had an issue with computer freezes since my SSD died). It took my 3 times to get the Driver installed Once the driver was installed it ran smoothly.
Of course I had to do a complete restart after (which you should do after installations), after a slow start up (because of myregular HDs) i get back in and Windows 10 has ran smooth. A few issues to note and may be different for each some games and programs need to be ran in Windows 7 to allow them to still run correctly. The developers of your programs and games will need to update the game for 10 or you just stay with compatibility mode.
I have had no issues with video, I have used very little of Microsoft Edge, from what I can see visually it is an improvement over Internet Explorer. However, I will be sticking to Google Chrome for the time being. The upgrade was quite seamless though took some time, though I believe an hour isn't to bad for install and set up time. Most driver issues can be solved by restarting (as it will take a moment for drivers to be recognized and installed. An issue I had with a game (Digimon Masters Online) was the mouse stopped working when I exited the game. The only fix I had was to unplug the mouse and plug it back in. A bit of a pain but it fixed things right up. I expect this to be fixed in a future patch or system fix.
If you haven't gotten your download yet don't worry they are being rolled out in waves, if you just can't wait go ahead and sign up for the Windows Insider program and you will be able to download right now.
