The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast 191

Sony has made one of the biggest blunders they could have possibly made by not including an UltraHD  Blu-ray player with the upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro. Considering that the significantly weaker XBox One S is cheaper and has a UHD BD player included, Sony could not have possibly made a dumber mistake. Last year, Akamai, […]

Review – Styx: Master of Shadows

Styx: Master of Shadows by Cyanide Studio is in many ways a game that screams out to people like me who fell in love with Dishonored and the Thief series. Focused on stealth with lots of items to steal and many ways to reach the intended destination with a bit of Assassin’s Creed thrown it, […]

How To Play “Grand Theft Auto V” (PC) in 3D

If you’ve followed my podcast or read other articles here, you should know that I love 3D. Unlike the 3D haters who arrogantly want it to go away for everyone just because they don’t like it, I want it to be an option. If you want to use it, great! If you don’t, that’s your […]

Detective Grimoire (Review)

I’m a sucker for detective games as long as they’re not insanely hard. Some games love to stop you in your tracks if you don’t find the most obscure clue. Usually, such games require you to find clues by clicking all over the place hoping that you accidentally click on whatever it expects you to […]

The Last Tinker: City of Colors (Review)

You […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #135

Hey! I didn’t skip it this time, but I really need to stop recording these shows late at night.  Netflix streams in 4K while streaming prices are expected to rise, Frozen becomes the highest grossing animated film ever, Spider-Man 2 is off to a great start overseas, the final X-Men trailer is released, Peter Laird (co-creator of […]

I Don’t Care About The Oculus Rift Anymore

The news that Facebook (of all places) bought Oculus VR sent a shock wave throughout the Internet, particularly the gaming community. Condemnation, anger, ambivalence, confusion, and rage echoed around the world. The only people who seemed to be genuinely happy with this are Mark Zuckerberg, Palmer Luckey, and John Carmack. I know I’m not happy with […]

Irrational’s Actions Are Irrational

As a proud first-generation gamer, being someone who has been gaming since the Golden Age in the mid-1980s, hearing about problems in the gaming industry is always disheartening. The gaming industry is very competitive. A lot of good studios are spending a lot of time and money fighting for our hard-earned dollars. Many are successful […]

As My PS4 Sits Idly By

Here I sit with a new, launch-day PlayStation 4. I have had none of the problems that a few people have supposedly been having. The blue light of death and the red line of death have thus far been absent. Standing proudly next to my PS2-emulation PS3 (with a recently-upgraded 500 GB hard drive), the […]
