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 taste of Mass Effect Andromeda has me wanting more

By  • 

Bioware finally takes the blanket of secrecy fully off Mass Effect Andromeda this week. It’s impossible to overstate how popular the Mass Effect franchise is. I have friends with weapons from the game tattooed on their forearm (Hello Stein.) Members of my family have insisted on sending me home from a party early so that I could play the first three games in the series. Yes, I’m that guy amongst a sea of gaming fans who has managed to skip every game in the series until now. Don’t look at me that way. I didn’t have an Xbox 360 when the first Mass Effect arrived. By the time the last one was available I was living on my own. Rent payments and Ramen came first.

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.

How I use the Xbox Elite Controller  

By  • 

I reviewed the Xbox Elite Controller for The En shortly after purchasing it March. At the time, I was looking to do more gaming on Windows. I’d tested out a Steam Controller for this purpose, but found it just wasn’t comfortable. I took it back to GameStop and picked up the Elite instead. I love this thing.

The Bag: What I Carry Besides a Surface Pro 4 

By  • 

My setup has changed a lot. I’ve had three solid years to get new devices and refine my technique. I haven’t ditched Windows Phone yet, but I’ve put some insurance policies in place in case Microsoft can’t get its act together. I’ve rid myself of extra gaming equipment and change the what I carry. As such, I thought the piece needed revisiting.
