All Demos? + Hands On, Hands Off [DualShock 4]

All Demos Perhaps one of the best things that may come to the PS4 is the access, instant or not, to full game trials of every PS4 game. It's very pro-consumer. I think. It's definitely not pro-publisher, if Jesse Schell's D.I.C.E present...

About Triopticalone of us since 3:43 PM on 01.26.2010

The easiest way to get to know me is to consume the stuff I write or make, whether it be comments or what not. Simply put, games are my life, and while I've been part of several gaming communities, I have yet to meet any gamers who are truly like me. Is this time the charm?

"Trioptical" is something I may or may not have seen in an episode of Star Trek: TNG on a screen in the backgrounds. That was around 1997, September, when I created my first email account and I have used the name ever since. It suits me. To this day, the only other Trioptical I've ever run into is a Tri-optical that sells glasses and such. It's a play off of the Chinese character that is often associated with good vision. I guess it's a good fit for them too.

But I had it first.

Hey! Look at that! Automatic XBOX Live Gamertag. Sweet.
