Brief Hiatus Announcement

Hey guys, thanks for sticking with this blog for the past few months! I’m having a great time writing it. However, I’ve just taken on a new position at work and I’ll be away from my computer for quite some time, so I’m announcing a few weeks of hiatus. There is, simply, too much to be juggling around at the moment, so this project is on the back-burners for a bit. No worries, though! I’ll be back before you know it.

‘Intruder’ Review

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is, for all its faults, one of my favorite games. Adding up my time between that and its predecessor, Ground Zeroes, I’ve put in nearly ninety hours on the Fox Engine’s game’s. MGSV is amazing in the fact that it actually makes you feel like one of the super-soldiers it portrays. It’s fun, it’s engaging, it’s exciting… and the multiplayer sucks.

Some Short Thoughts on Ready Player One

I love audiobooks. I mean, I really like ’em. My audible library tells me I’ve read close to sixty of them in the past year or two, which actually kind of terrifies me. Where did the time go? That’s hour after hour of spoken word. Dang. And the thing is, I’ve finished almost every single one of those books.

Except for one book in particular, one book that pissed me off so much I had to put it down after only a few hours because I could barely contain myself… Ready Player One.

Defending the Steam Controller and Steam Link

Back in November of 2015, Valve released their much-hyped new accessory, the Steam Controller, which was created to allow mouse-like controls so that video games that were originally created to be used with a mouse and keyboard could be used with a controller instead. Along with the Steam Controller came the Steam Link, which was more or less a wireless HDMI cord so you could play PC games on a TV. It could also be linked up with the Steam Controller so that you didn’t need to be right next to your PC in order for it to work.

It’s been nearly two years since these pieces of hardware were released. Now, the real question is: did they hold up?
