PlayStation 4 HDMI Ports Are The Worst

I’m going to be pretty point blank here: The PlayStation 4, namely the “standard” model that much of the owners of the system have, has absolutely terrible HDMI ports. Don’t even begin to defend this or claim it not true, because guess what: it is. At the shop we have over the past 6 months …

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 …

Metro Exodus – Again, Into The Radioactive Wastes We Go

The Metro games have quite the cult following among fans of the post-apocalyptic genre.

Destiny 2 – More Story, More Activision + Sony Promotion

First Look at Titanfall 2 Single Player and Multiplayer Trailers

Make no mistake about it, I genuinely enjoy Titanfall. I’m a fan of mechs as is, and to have a FPS that is mech based was a great idea. Titanfall had massive hype, but sad to say, to the masses, it didn’t deliver. While being multiplayer only, usually a bane to my enjoyment of a …

Dear Parents: Modern Game Consoles Demand Internet Access

Working in game sales for the day job, I quite often have parents buying new video games, and new game consoles, for their children.That’s great, let the younger ones game on cutting edge hardware for their time, just as I did in the 90’s. The thing is, it isn’t the 90’s anymore. Gaming hardware is …

A Rant on Downloadable Content

Downloadable Content. Intended as a way to expand the quality of a game after its initial release, many gamers see it as a bane of their gaming experience, often feeling it is nothing more than a way to milk more money out of the consumer who already spent $60 or more on their new game. …
