Well, guess I'm horny for a hard drive

First a motherboard and now an external hard drive. Against all odds, 2018 is shaping up to be the year that I'm extremely into the aesthetic of certain hardware. Accompanying the recent reveal of the Sea of Thieves Xbox One controller...

We had a blast goofing off in Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves can be anything!

I don't remember the last time I saw Sea of Thieves, but it doesn't really thrill me. I'm not big on pirates and the whole open world thing is a little old hat. That isn't to say this doesn't look neat, but I don't know how much I can belie...

Sony had a project called ICE back in the PS3 days (and even now Im assuming since Guerrilla has lent out its engine to kojima) Im wondering if Nintendo or Microsoft have a similar program, and if not, why not?

Im of the opinion that Konami was at its best on the Famicom, but in the 16-bit era, do you think they had a better showing on the Genesis or the Super Nintendo?
