We Knew It Was Coming: The SNES Classic Edition

It’s funny, I was just talking to some friends the other day, us all discussing what games we would want to see on a hypothetical SNES Classic Edition console, and what does Nintendo do today but announce it coming, with 21 games. Sure, not nearly as many as the NES Classic Edition had at 30 …

As Expected, Sony Was Pushing Virtual Reality Heavily At This Years E3

As the title suggests, Sony was pushing very heavily it’s PlayStation VR platform this year at E3, with several “new” games being demonstrated with the technology. I say new, but in many cases the games being presented are old titles with new VR updates – Superhot and (uhg) Skyrim are the most blatant examples, with …

Call Of Duty: WWII – The E3 Reveal And Interview

Getting back to E3 coverage (a week and a half late, mind you) I have more footage to share of the new Call of Duty game, simply titled “Call of Duty: WWII.” It looks like it will be a fine enough game, and certainly will go back to CoD’s roots, but I have seen some …

Same stuff, different day at SpaceX today with yet another launch from Pad 39A, this time of Bulgaria’s 1st satellite, BulgariaSat 1, to geosynchronous orbit. Yep, another communications satellite, but as mentioned, this is the 1st satellite made by Bulgaria, so that’s special: I hope it works out well for them and their needs! The …

Enjoy The Silence

A week ago, there were somewhere around 4 posts a day, as a side effect of E3 going on. Now, a week later, it’s been far more quiet. The reason behind it is quite simple: I’ve been taking some time for myself, trying to enjoy gaming, and just relax. E3 proved this year to be, …

This past week 2K Games did their announcement of the first of their sports games for this next year: WWE 2K18. The primary thing from the announcement (at least that I see, hell it could have been the main point for all I know) was simply that Seth Rollins would be on the cover (because, …

The Articles That Triberr Missed – The GIF Format And Some E3 Coverage

So, shortly after my last articles on the subject. Triberr decided to push one of the missing articles up: I figured it would throw the other article up there as well, but it never did – not only that, thanks to the 14 article import per week limit, and me not knowing exactly where I …

In a little bit of news that has the geekier side of the internet smiling, the .gif file format turns 30 today, June 15th, 2017. Yep, the same file format that beings you all those horribly annoying 1 second long looping animations on every buzzfeed top 10 list, the file format that no one wants …

Metro Exodus – Again, Into The Radioactive Wastes We Go

The Metro games have quite the cult following among fans of the post-apocalyptic genre. While Fallout is the most prominent example of the genre, there are many, many different game series that use similar settings: the S.T.A.L.K.E.R series being my personal favorites. There is a very similar yet still unique series, though, based off a …
