  1. On top of all that, it's exquisitely recorded, making it great demo material for a stereo or pair of headphones.
  2. Good news, fellas! It looks like I may be able to afford that new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR after all. My Barclaycard with Apple Rewards just increased my credit limit to $11,500! Of course, this means that I won't be able get the stand for the display right away. Maybe someone can buy it for me for my birthday. Or I could just do this:
  3. So this wasn't officially announced at E3 (it was announced by Team Cherry back in February — on Valentine's Day no less), but it did have a pressence at the show this year. It popped up toward the end of Nintendo's E3 Direct during the sizzle reel of forthcoming games. It was also playable on the show floor as noted by this article at Kotaku. It was also featured at Nintendo's Tree House Live from the show floor. Unfortunately no release date has been set as of yet. The closest we have is the "Coming Soon" tag from the sizzle reel, which could mean tomorrow or three years from now. Regardless, I'm ready for it. As you may have guessed from my avatar, I'm a big fan of the first game, having spent over 40 hours with it. Silksong appears to be more of the same, except that instead of playing as the Knight, you play as Hornet, a character the Knight encountered in the first game. She will have a slightly different move set and her own unique abilities, which should help to freshen up the gameplay a bit. Also, it sounds like this game's theme will be ascending rather than descending, which was the overall theme of the original. So instead of exploring tunnles deep below the serface of the earth, you'll be climbing to the top of something — a tower perhaps or a large hill? I'm not sure exactly. Obviously, there's more to come. I will be keeping an eye out for news on this one, and anxiously awaiting an official release date announcement.
  4. I watched (or rather listened) to it this morning. It's good stuff. He obviously can't go into a lot of detail about future things like Project Scarlett or Halo: Infinite, but he does talk a lot about his philosophy when it comes to things like hardware, the role of streaming services for games, and competition. For all the recent talk about Microsoft working with Sony and Nintendo, he flat out admits that he wants to build the best console hardware in the world, and he wants Project Scarlett to be number 1 in sales. I'm sure he's sick to death of hearing about how Microsoft flubbed the launch of Xbox One and is doing everything in his power to prevent that from happening again.
  5. I don't know. I like the "Not Secure" tag in Safari and Chrome. Makes me feel like I'm living dangerously!
  6. Hey, look! It’s the annual E3 Giant Bomb interview with Phil Spencer! I haven’t watched it yet — looking forward to it though. These interviews are usually very good.
  7. 540p might not be too bad in handheld mode, but 720p dynamic is brutal. I wouldn't be surprised if the only time the game hits that if is you're standing perfectly still with the camera pointed at a wall.
  8. I ended up double dipping on both the game and the DLC at the start of this year. I had a real strong itch to play BotW and couldn’t wait any longer for a sale. Thankfully, I had a couple Target gift cards, which I used to buy a digital code, which I then redeemed on the eShop (complicated enough for you?). So I didn’t have to spend my own money on it. So far I’ve put over 25 hours into the game according to my Switch. I’ve completed between 35-40 shrines (I can’t remember off the top of my head). I’ve also completed one Ancient Beast. I have a long ways to go, but at least I’ve made some progress. I don’t feel like I’ve wasted my money on the purchase. I’ve been treating this as my “Game Between Games” — a palette cleanser, if you will. After beating an intense game like Hollow Knight or Cuphead, it’s nice to have a relaxing title like this waiting in the wings to play for a couple nights. Best of all, it’s an easy game to just pick up and start playing, no matter where you are. It’s not super narrative-focused, so I can remember what I was doing and not feel like I’m completely lost on the plot. I just pick a place on the map I haven’t been to yet and start exploring. Great stuff! Now that the sequel has been announced, I may have a strong urge to play it more regularly than I have. I’ll be on vacation with my family next week. That might be a good time to sink more hours into it (assuming I have the time or energy for that).
  9. Guys, I'm starting to get concerned. It's been four hours since this announcement was made and we still haven't heard from Romier. Can someone drive over to his house and make sure he's OK?
  10. If Nintendo expected it to arrive in late 2020, I would have expected them to say so in the trailer. It could happen, but for now I remain skeptical.
  11. I just looked, and the game is not available digitally yet. As for that lawsuit, Dennis Dyack, founder of Silicon Knights, talked about it on an episode of IGN Unfiltered recently. It's a good interview, worth checking out if you have the time.
  12. I'm encouraged by the fact that it looks like this mansion (err, hotel?) is pretty big. I'd rather explore one really large building than the multiple buildings in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. And I, for one, like the name Gooigi.
  13. So, should I play this game on Switch instead of my Xbox One X? It'll look about the same, right? 😉
