The Truth About PC Gaming

PC Gaming

If there is one major pivot of passion, debate and fan boy exposure within the video game industry it would have to be the never ending “battle” between PC and consoles.

On and on it goes, the wheel of life spins bringing around it a perpetual cycle of name calling and arguing. There are the console lovers, claiming to be content with the added convenience and simplicity of play and management, and then there are the PC lovers, espousing the near limitless level and customization, independence and graphical power. Despite these talking points, rarely is there ever a general consensus between parties as to which is better, regardless of the specific topic or context at hand.

At least, that is until someone decides to bring out the big question: which one costs more? Continue reading

Call of Duty: Ghosts and The Revealing Power of Buzzwords

Call of Duty Ghosts

Now featuring a dog and superior fish AI.

Even though Call of Duty: Ghosts is going to come out on practically every available system, both current and next-gen, everyone knows that any real discussion over AI or graphical innovation is mainly going to involve Microsoft, Sony, and the PC. What is so interesting about this particular discussion, however, is that it provides yet another example of just how insecure Microsoft is about the upcoming jump from the current generation to the next generation in terms of PR and sales. Take this recent article from Eurogamer and Infinity Ward’s Executive Producer Mark Rubin talking about the differences between Call of Duty: Ghosts on this generation’s consoles and the next: Continue reading

Gaming, Boys, and Education

At the very least this woman blows Anita Sarkeesian out of the water. Unlike Sarkeesian, this woman – Ali Carr-Chellman – actually uses some numbers and statistics and facts, so she has earned the right to be listened to. This is only made even more ironic considering that TEDEd have also hosted Anita Sarkeesian herself in the past. As usual, the comments on that particular video are closed, as is the usual modus operandi with anything propagated by Feminists and their like-minded ilk. Continue reading

Faith or No Faith: Nintendo Wii-U, Struggling Sales, and Improving Morale

Nintendo Wii U

The Wii-U; yet another underdog console from Nintendo.

Every now and then it helps to deliberately ask people for their thoughts or views. In terms of Nintendo’s Wii-U, the overall consensus seems somewhat scattered. There is no shortage of articles lamenting the consoles poor sales, and recently it was announced that the Wii-U is still going to be sold at a loss:

Divider - Design - 45%

“Earlier this week, Nintendo’s annual report cited Wii U hardware sales as a major factor in the company’s 36.4 billion yen ($387 million) operating loss. In the same document, Nintendo [President] Satoru Iwata promised investors the company will ‘strive to regain ‘Nintendo-like’ profits’ in the current fiscal year.

Selling hardware at a loss is a decidedly un-Nintendo-like practice. Iwata made headlines last October when he first revealed the company would be losing money on each Wii U sold. However, the following month Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime downplayed the significance of the profit shortfall, saying ‘as soon as we get the consumer to buy one piece of software, then that entire transaction becomes profit positive.’” Continue reading

Raw Footage Review: An Example of Divorce and Child Custody

The original response for this video comes from another YouTube user’s channel and video: Bar Bar – Dissecting Raw Material

This article is meant to provide an in-depth look at an example of how people work and conversations go about on a realistic level. This video is particularly striking, giving an example of just what some people will go to for their children.

This video basically shows a divorced father, named Caleb Leverett, trying to offer his son, Parker, a choice in regards to which parent he is to live with. Fortunately, the father and Parker try to go about it in a civil way, by at least presenting themselves to talk about it. The mother is adamant about “getting her son back,” and a heartfelt and hour long interlude proceeds.

The most notable thing about this video is the different ways that each parent goes about determining what is best for Parker. The mother throughout the video insists that he should listen what she says. Caleb, the biological father, repeatedly states that he is not forcing Parker in any way, and that he is free to leave or do as he pleases. Continue reading

4 Strange Ways Cats Are Good For Your Health And Well-Being

A cat on its back

These things are in fact good for your health. I’ll prove it.

Or more specifically, what does a person gain from owning a member of Felis Catus, or domestic cats? One must remember that owning such creatures, or any creature for that matter, is an investment, one for only the most prim and proper of gentlemen/women. Remember, though, that an investment is also a resource, and a good rule of business is to “know your own resources.” Yes, the domesticated feline is a resource, and you must know it fully to maximize both its and your own potential. That is why I am here, to explain your resource, and thus further your own agenda, health, or various business ventures. Continue reading
