The Making of Psychonauts December 27, 2018

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season. I personally spent it with a brand-new VR headset. With it, I’ve finally been able to catch up on playing a laundry list of VR-only games that I was previously unable to experience. My favorite game to play on it so far? Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, the VR-only sequel to the 2005 cult classic, Psychonauts.

Let’s face it Psychonauts is a beloved game that many gamers still cite back to all these years later, but its development was not easy. It was created by a first-time studio who were veterans of entirely different kinds of games. It switched publishers at least once, and nearly ran out of funding on at least one occasion. It launched later than expected and despite great reviews initial sales were not good. The guys over at 2-Player Productions, one of the finest documentary studios in existence, produced an incredible three-part video about the making of the original Psychonauts. If you’re a fan of the game or just love the work of Tim Schaffer, You should give it a watch.

Psychonauts is out now for Xbox, PS2 and PC. It’s also available as a digital download on Steam, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is out now for PSVR and Steam VR.

A lot of fans of the original game will be happy to know a full sequel is currently in development for PC and modern consoles. Psychonauts 2 is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2019.

Owners of the Digital Deluxe Edition and the Retail Collector’s Edition will be getting it for free. Just be aware if you want to use the suit made famous in the Sam Raimi directed Spider-Man films, you’ll need to update your game to version 1.13. Don’t worry, that update is free to download.

Remedy’s CONTROL was one of the most pleasant surprises of this past E3. The game takes place in The Oldest House, a building found by the government years earlier that defies the laws of reality. In this game, we’ll be able to explore the entire building as an open world. Take a closer look at the world of CONTROL.

CONTROL is coming in 2019 to PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Raimi Suit from Original Spider-Man Films Added to Spider-Man on PS4 for Free December 20, 2018

Merry Christmas, Spider-Man fans! The Spider-Man suit made famous in the Spider-Man films directed by Sam Raimi (which is why it is referred to as the Raimi suit) can now be obtained completely free of charge. This is the most fan-requested suit for Spider-Man on the PS4 and it should make a lot of gamers happy prior to the release of the Silver Lining DLC tomorrow!

To get the suit, you’ll need to install the 1.13 patch. You can do that by highlighting the game in the PS4 menu, pushing the triangle button, and selecting the Check for Update option from the options menu. The patch is not small, even if you previously had the most recent patch, it will clock in at a download of around 3.5GB. You’ll likely need to download the patch anyway if you plan to play the Silver Lining DLC.

Spider-Man is out now exclusively for the PS4.

How to Upgrade the PS4 Pro Hard Drive December 18, 2018

Happy Holidays everyone! Sony’s PS4 Pro currently ships with a stock internal storage capacity of 1TB. After owning one for nearly a year, that amount of storage just wasn’t cutting it anymore. We need to upgrade the internal storage of the PS4 Pro! Thankfully this is permitted by Sony, and this procedure can be performed without voiding the system’s warranty.

So how do we upgrade the PS4 Pro’s internal Hard Drive? You’ll need:

  • The PS4 Pro
  • A PC or Mac
  • A 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (exFAT Formatted)
  • A 2-4GB USB Thumb Drive (FAT32 Formatted)
  • A Phillips Head 00 screwdriver

The PS4 Pro accepts 2.5″ SATA 6.0GB/s Hard Drives, so you’ll have to get a drive that meets those specifications. We are going to do this procedure with a 2TB mechanical drive. You can also install a Solid State Drive (SSD) using this method, provided it fits the 2.5″ form factor.

We broke this procedure into two parts to make it easier for all of you. In part 1, we focus specifically on the prep work. Everything you need to do BEFORE taking your PS4 Pro apart is in this video, please watch before starting the process. If you would like a direct link to Sony’s PS4 firmware download page, you can click here. Regardless if you plan to back up your data or not, you WILL need the PS4 firmware to get your PS4 working after replacing the internal storage.

With prep out of the way we will now move to Part 2. This is what you’ll need to know to take the PS4 Pro apart, replace the internal drive, and get the PS4 working again after the drive has been replaced. We follow it up with how to restore all your data from the old drive using a backup.

iOS 12.1.2 Released December 17, 2018

A very minor software update has been released for nearly all Apple iDevices tonight. The new update, version 12.1.2, includes much requested support for eSIM cards.

It won’t take very long to download the new software update, in fact it is one of the smallest software updates I’ve seen in a while. Depending on your device, if you previously had the most up to date system software, you will likely only need to download 65MB of data. You can also update your device through iTunes.

Tales from IT – That Time I Unboxed and Updated 50 iPads in One Day December 17, 2018

If you’re here because of the title, it pretty much speaks for itself. One day while working on a long-term IT assignment, I was asked at the last minute to set up iPads for fifty people. They had to be unboxed, put into cases, and updated. Since these devices were arriving system locked, preventing unauthorized users from setting them up and accessing the home screen, they could only be updated with iTunes. I was told all fifty iPads had to be ready by 7am the next morning. How did I do? What did it take? Did I make it? Watch and find out.

With the exception of maybe Louis Rothman, has anyone ever done this?
