More Thoughts From Me #14: Stop With The Rumors Already!

” Hey listen…I’ve heard that the NX is…”. On the internet, anybody can say anything they want. They can tell you the truth and they can lie too. Oh boy they can lie. People especially love to make up rumors about stuff that they love or think they’ll love. They do that with things they hate too. When it comes to video games, this is pretty common.

Microsoft Working on Digital Trade Ins?

A survey from Microsoft which popped up on Reddit today indicated that the video game and software company was toying with the idea of offering a trade-in for digital purchases. While the trade in amount would not be much – a mere 10% if the survey is to believed – it would be better than nothing if you truly don’t want to play the game anymore. On a 60.00 game, consumers would only be getting 6 dollars back. Ideally, the…

More Thoughts From Me #9: Virtual Reality Will Never Work

Virtual Reality will never work! Want to hear my totally uninformed opinion of current day VR? Read on! Virtual Reality is just a gimmick. There I said it. I know I’ll make some people upset with this opinion. There are people who love VR and want it to work. For some reason. I just do not get why.
