Games Review: Bayonetta (Nintendo Switch, 2018): Still got it, baby

It’s hard to imagine that Bayonetta was released nearly 10 years-ago now and the apparently superior sequel Bayonetta 2 was 4 years ago! With the newly released Switch port arriving this month, for the most part, it honestly feels like it was made for it today, it just ages well and for a guy that never played the original or any of its other ports (Xbox 360, PS3 etc..) it holds up pretty well in 2018 and even more so when I can take it with me to work, I mean for a drive!?

Add to this the notion of earbuds that are wireless — the cord being the one thing that typically stops me from losing any pair of buds I own the instant I open the box — and it felt like I already knew how my review of BlueAnt’s new wireless sportsbuds was going to end before it began.

It didn’t though, and that’s probably why I like them so much in spite their flaws. Continue reading Tech Review: BlueAnt Pump Air True Wireless Sportsbuds: Comfortably average

Opinion: Star Wars Battlefront II‘s microtransactions aren’t a debacle, they’re an experiment

It’s been a crazy couple of months for Star Wars Battlefront II, and the game hasn’t even technically launched yet. After an open beta that ended in community uproar over pervasive multiplayer microtransactions, a new controversy has erupted over the amount of in-game currency required to unlock major characters. Gamer forums and subreddits have been rife this week with cries of “why would they think they could get away with this?” but everyone seems to be missing a crucial point. EA knew you were going to be mad about this stuff. What they wanted to know was exactly how mad.
