In what might have been the most unsurprising move ever, Sony announced this week that the PlayStation 4 Pro will be available this November and be sold as a more powerful sibling to the newly redesigned PlayStation 4. The Pro will be able to play games at 4K (sort of), have HDR (High-Dynamic Range) support (not … More The Problem(s) with The PlayStation 4 Pro
Hey there Internet. Did you have a good summer? Mine was pretty good if you care to know. Through a combination of enjoying the summer weather and a plethora of non-blogging obligations, July and August ended up being incredibly sparse in the posts department. As I mentioned in one of three posts I wrote last month, I … More Blog Update: On the Road Again
One of the games I purchased during the last Steam summer sale was Age of Mythology: Extended Edition, essentially an “HD remaster” of the original game. It’s been 14 years since the release of the original Age of Mythology, and I have fond memories of playing it when I was a kid. So it should be … More To Remaster or Not Remaster?
When I found out that GameTrailers was shutting down after 13 years of producing content, I couldn’t help but feel a little sad. I’ll admit that I hadn’t been actively checking the site over the last few years, but sometimes the loss of something that was once a big part of your life can still … More Remembering GameTrailers

I’ve been fairly obsessed with it all week, perhaps the first game I’ve decided to actively dedicate time to in the last few months. But as I’ve been playing it and reading reviews about it, a thought occurred to … More Why Do We Put up With Buggy Bethesda Games?
Tell me if you’ve heard this story before. A bunch of teenagers with no adult supervision go to a cabin in the woods during a snowstorm for a night of partying and general debauchery. Then it turns out everything goes horribly wrong. Sound familiar? At face value, the story of Until Dawn is one that many of … More O’ Death: Until Dawn Review
When one traditionally thinks of Final Fantasy, a few things come to mind. Moogles, Chocobos, ridiculous airships, even more ridiculous hairstyles, and some really big swords are just a few examples of some ideas that have for better or worse helped define the franchise. However, tropes like these are what has caused the series as a whole … More We Have Arrived: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review
When I was in high school, I was really interested in digital photography. While nowadays everyone just takes pictures with their cellphones, my Dad got me a digital camera before they became more common place. This was while I was in middle school, and my first digital camera was a point-and-shoot. It an Olympus Camedia … More Getting Back Into Digital Photography
It was after coming home from a concert that I found out about the passing of Satoru Iwata, President and CEO of Nintendo. I’d been riding a sort of emotional high after attending the show and felt like the evening had gone well. After logging on to twitter and seeing the outpouring of support for … More Thank You Mr. Iwata
Over the past 10 years I’ve collected a large digital music collection. Since getting my first iPod, I have been one of the many who have abandoned physical CDs as my main way of adding new music to my library. Although I haven’t completely stopped purchasing physical media for music, it’s certainly a rarity now. In … More Apple Music: Awesome and Annoying
