My opinion on all the things.

  • Canon Field Monitor for Under $100

    Whether you’re a vlogger or an indie film maker, cost is important. Heck. Cost is important period. So when I found myself salivating over the latest Sony A7s II and weighing the backlash I’d receive from my wife if purchased it, I backtr…

  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Spoilers!)

    This weekend, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was released in America and I have no doubt it is going to blow away any box office leaders. It was visually inspiring, progressed well, and stayed true to the older movies. I’m writing t…

    Why Destiny is Killing Me

    Destiny gets so much right, I feel bad saying it’s killing me. The game controls are solid. The audio is top-notch. The character “feel” is organic, fluid and responsive without feeling blocky. The scenery is gorgeous, and the cinem…

    Description WHAT: Video Game BY: EA Games & DICE CALLED: Battlefield 4 SINCE: Purchased on November 29th, 2013.   Summary First-person shooter with a focus on teamwork, destructive environments, and fast paced gameplay. The game mechanics ar…

Canon Field Monitor for Under $100

Whether you’re a vlogger or an indie film maker, cost is important. Heck. Cost is important period. So when I found myself salivating over the latest Sony A7s II and weighing the backlash I’d receive from my wife if purchased it, I backtracked. “The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it.” – Ansel Adams I always forget that adage. Whenever I think a new piece of equipment would “allow me to do _____”, I have to get real with myself and …

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Spoilers!)

This weekend, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was released in America and I have no doubt it is going to blow away any box office leaders. It was visually inspiring, progressed well, and stayed true to the older movies. I’m writing this article because I am a huge Star Wars fan. That’s pretty much it. I want to write down my thoughts so they can bounce off my “Star Wars Fan-ily” (Get it? Did I stretch that “Family” pun too far?). I want to start discussing what this …

Why Destiny is Killing Me

cdn.destructoid.com

Destiny gets so much right, I feel bad saying it’s killing me. The game controls are solid. The audio is top-notch. The character “feel” is organic, fluid and responsive without feeling blocky. The scenery is gorgeous, and the cinematic cut scenes are framed well. They even make you eager to see how they will build the universe. But the storytelling is lackluster. The missions are repetitive. The loot system is a laugh-out-loud riot. The “end game” requires you to have a clan or other close-nit …

Battlefield 4

Description WHAT: Video Game BY: EA Games & DICE CALLED: Battlefield 4 SINCE: Purchased on November 29th, 2013.   Summary First-person shooter with a focus on teamwork, destructive environments, and fast paced gameplay. The game mechanics are solid and encourage cooperation while rewarding individual skill. Customizing your loadout is intuitive and highly modifiable. The biggest downfall to the game are the long list of bugs, the lack of proper key binding (for PC), and the friendly AI in single player. Battlefield 4 has more breaking points than Walter White and …
