I’ve Come from the Future: 3 Days with the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier 

By  • 

I didn’t realize it when it started, but Monday would be the first day of a four-day tech high for me. Maybe you don’t know what a tech high is, but you’ve probably experienced one. It happens when all the stars align just right. You’re researching something cool that you were only mildly interested in. Then, as if you’re returning to a police station to claim a bag of money that no one else did, you get excited. Your heart flutters. You realize that the piece of tech you’re looking at could change everything. Last Monday I purchased the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier.

I’ve Changed My Mind, I Might Be in on this Microsoft Books Thing

By  • 

“why would anyone buy books from Microsoft when they can already get them in better places?” As this was coming from the same guy that has a 30 item collection strong movie selection in Microsoft Movies & TV, plus an extensive Xbox One games library with no disc, he was a bit taken aback.

DLC Rising: Why Do We Buy Video Game DLC?

By  • 

If we’re already paying full price for title, why is it ok for video game DLC to cost even more? I asked a few people they buy it.

Sunday Sitdown: Make Microsoft Software Great Again 

By  • 

I once infamously claimed that Windows 8 was fine. I said – publicly – that people who didn’t like Microsoft’s efforts to modernize Windows should be “dragged kicking and screaming” into the modern era. I’ve aged enough to know that comment was pretty, though I’m sure I could probably dig up worse things I’ve said on Twitter. By the time Microsoft was ready to release Windows 10, I’d matured. Sure, I liked the operating system and the Surface Pro 4 that the company introduced soon after its Windows 10 launch. I’d been using the new software for months. It was fine, but I urged people to hold off on upgrading. I wanted normal users to take themselves out of the line of fire. I didn’t want anyone loading the operating system on their device and finding a completely broken experience.

I, like so many an Xbox gamer, made coffee to nurse myself through a post- July 4th productivity hangover on Tuesday. I then bolted to the Xbox Store for the Xbox Ultimate Games Sale.

E3 Aftermath: Xbox Scorpio and the release days that weren’t

By  • 

The en remained largely silent last week as Microsoft, Ubisoft and Electronic Arts announced their new wares at E3 2016. Once upon a time, this silence would have been because I had absolutely no time to write while covering the show for my freelance gig. This go-around, it was because I wanted time to pick out my favorites and come up with some petty jokes and Michael Jordan memes. I joke, but not really.

E3 2016 & Xbox One Scorpio: A Tale of Two Cultures

By  • 

I’m writing a book. Well, technically, I’ve written a book. For months I’ve been talking up the Xbox Handbook. I’m still posting chapters to The en before they’re compiled into the actual guide over the summer. The worst kept secret in gaming is that Microsoft and Sony are preparing new hardware for their press conferences at the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Microsoft is allegedly calling one of its upgrading units the Xbox One Scorpio.

Batman Arkham Returns & my dilemma

By  • 

I’ve been described as “fiscally conservative.” My Girlfriend likes to call me cheap. I wouldn’t say that I’m necessarily either one of those things, though I do enjoy a bank account that’s not in the minus. I also don’t mind saving some cash when the possibility presents itself. Thing is, folks aren’t entirely wrong. Warner Brothers’ Batman Arkham Returns release has me thinking about it a lot this week.
