Another week doing oversaturated news like a bullet-hell with all that E3 coverage flying around everywhere. The GTA 5 casino that’s been closed for 6 years now might finally be opening while retro game console Kickstarters are coming out of the wood works – each with their own schtick from light gun controllers to more games added to the pile. Bulletproom foam, Walmart store to fridge deliveries, air conditioning drink coolers, it... Read more
This week we talk about a game console that lets kids play while they code, but if you’re too old for that and ready to tie the knot, it’s time to take a trip to Japan and get official - Pokémon wedding official that is! But before you run, you gotta walk, and soon you’ll have smarter crosswalks to get you across that street faster. Look both ways though! You might see Honda’s new car without side view mirrors – the camera probably... Read more
We’re back after a week hiatus primarily caused from us fiddling around with firewalls and whatnot, so what a great time to talk about occupying yourself with gamification! Don’t worry! I’m sure industry isn’t trying to manipulate metric rewards or anything… something, something Pavlovian law. But between new mods to make NPCs poop, to DLC that adds dogs, to games about taking pictures of dogs - you should have PLENTY to do! Also,... Read more
For those that had heard about this upcoming episode and were expecting a special guest this week, I’m sorry to say, will be disappointed; scheduling and long road-trip times got in the way.

Maybe you like everything on tiny screens like o... Read more
No matter who you are, you’ve probably played Solitaire at least once, but have you ever tried Colossal Cave Adventure? This is just one of the 2 other games on top of Solitaire that made it into the Video Games Hall of Fame this year. Also, is Fallout 4 not anime enough for you? Then download a new mod that changes your NPCs into cute, expressive, anime characters – definitely nuclear wasteland compatible. But maybe you’re hungry ... Read more
This week it’s all about the funky and weird! Do you play games? Of course you do. Tired of that lag and “jitteriness” when playing all those major FPS competitive games? Well Cox claims to have the solution for you – if… you happen to play on Windows PCs only and if… you want to pay $15 extra a month. Maybe you don’t want to play games and you want to make them. If you want to recreate that nostalgia experience from back in the... Read more
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is still so far away… so why not play the first Bloodlines instead? But wait! Before you do, you better download VTMB: The Unofficial Patch to fix this buggy narrative masterpiece – good timing! It was just updated to version 10.3 with a ton more bugfixes. If that’s not old enough for you though, let’s take a step back to the 90s with Disc Creatures! Coming at the end of this year (is it sti... Read more
It’s been a while, but Monster Hunter news is back with the Spring festival just around the corner, coming with it, soon after, the Witcher content we’ve been craving for since the console release back in February.

I won... Read more
We get a closer look at what the US Army is doing with Microsoft’s Hololens, but while you’re sitting on your much quieter airplane toilet thinking about that, you could pull out your phone and see all the wonderful Waze features making their way into Google maps (they let you turn off airplane mode after you get up in the after a while – don’t look at me like that)! Of course, we’re covering more – and yes, I mean ‘we’ because the... Read more
