Ask The en: My Xbox Setup, Groove Music Shutdown & Net Neutrality

By  • 

So I’ve slacked a little on Ask The en articles. Still, when I reached out on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for new questions to get the column going again, you find folks didn’t disappoint. It’s because of you that this edition is packed with questions and answers about Groove Music, how I game at home and my stance on Net Neutrality.

A Quick Word: Of Xbox One Features Stolen in the Night

By  • 

I can’t say that I’ve ever really been critical of Microsoft’s approach to updating the Xbox One. When new Xbox One features that you like are added on the regular, it’s hard to find it in yourself to examine things in a critical fashion. Every time new Xbox One features are added in a monthly update I picture a guy in a straw hat two-stepping with a cane from side to side and exclaiming “the happy times are here again.” I’m a disturbed individual, this we all know.

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.

Ask The en: Steep, Xbox One Price Cuts & Leaving Groove Music Pass 

By  • 

I have to admit that I had a very hard time resisting the urge to start this month’s Ask The en with a quote from Albus Dumbledore’s end of term speech in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. First, I’m a geek. Second, it feels like only yesterday I was sitting down to pen the first 2016 edition of the column. It also seems odd that already we’re talking about holiday Xbox One price cuts, the last few game releases of the year and other random musings. Yet here we find ourselves.

Saturday Night @ the Movies: Suicide Squad review

By  • 

I’m not sure when it lost its way really. Some say that Suicide Squad, the new super villain from Warner Brothers’ DC Comics, is a fantastically awful movie. I haven’t read reviews as bad as this film is getting since Saturday Night Live decided to go rotating out its cast members and Tina Fey disappeared.

Saturday Night @ the Movies: Captain America Civil War review

By  • 

Writing is funny sometimes; you can spend a lot of time trying to come up with a good way to open a review like this. Marvel and Disney seem like they employ folks who’d understand the trials of trying something over and over again. After all, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is just the same movie premise at its core, remade every year. Guy has or gets super powers, he uses those super powers to do what is right and just. To protect the innocent. That he – or she – feels the need to do all of this while wearing brightly colored, elaborately painted suits and masks is an equally repetitive feature, of course. I expected this from Captain America: Civil War.
