Tales from IT – My Most Frustrating Job May 22, 2019

You might think being an IT guy is an easy job and while it is certainly less difficult than other professions (provided you have years of experience) it can have its moments of frustration. Customers frequently forget their own passwords or give you incorrect information about their system specifications. However, we won’t be talking about issues with end users today. Our currently most frustrating experience working at IT was a time we had to install new servers at a retailer.

How long did we spend on the job and were we able to finish it? Watch and find out.

Halo: Outpost Discovery is a live event which will take place in five cities across the United States this summer. 343 Industries promises the event will feature experiences like a real-life Hall of History, and a virtual reality team deathmatch.

The guys at Studio 41B have been working on some of the setpieces for the event and they were kind enough to make this video showing some of the components they’re working on for the venue. Their work looks just great and I can’t wait to see it up close for myself!

Get your tickets as soon as you can because the 3-day VIP passes for the Orlando event have sold out!

Spider-Man: Velocity is First Original Spider-Man PS4 Comic Story May 16, 2019

Spider-Man on PS4 has been a literal marvel for Marvel Comics, the original publisher of the character. It revived interest in the wall crawler in a way that hasn’t been seen in a decade. Now, a painful agony is upon those who must wait for Insomniac and Marvel to announce its inevitable sequel. However, there have been some interesting developments for the franchise on the comic’s front. While the character in the PS4 game is not the canonical 616 version of Peter Parker found in the main pages of Marvel Comics, the PS4 Spider-Man universe has appeared in comic books including Spider-Geddon, and the game’s story is currently being adapted for the comic series Spider-Man: City at War. However, other than the novelized prequel we haven’t gotten any entirely original comic stories from the Marvel Gamerverse…until now.

Marvel has just revealed the first ever full-length original comic book that will take place in the same universe as the PS4 video game, Spider-Man: Velocity. It’s based on the backstory of the Velocity Suit, an entirely original suit that first appeared in the PS4 Spider-Man game. The suit was designed by artist Adi Granov, who is probably best known for his revolutionary Iron Man suit design in the mid-2000s that was used as the basis for Iron Man’s suit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now it looks like we will finally learn where it came from and why Spidey had to use it.

Spider-Man: Velocity #1 will be coming in August 2019.

Spider-Man is out now exclusively for the PS4.

The guys over at Sony have always produced incredible Making Of Documentaries about the production of each of the God of War games. Typically, these documentaries are included on the game discs, but this one is several years in the making. Today, they’re releasing the documentary about the making of God of War on the PS4. It’s called Raising Kratos and it follows the journey of Sony Santa Monica Studios and what it took to make this completely new God of War game on unfamiliar hardware in an all-new development studio.

I won’t spoil anything but this video has ups and downs. At some points you will cheer, at some points you will cry and others…well you’ll find out for yourselves.

God of War is out now exclusively for the PS4.

Final Fantasy VII Remake State of Play Trailer May 9, 2019

Back at E3 2015, Square announced they were remaking the beloved Final Fantasy VII for the PS4. Other than a follow up trailer which was released shortly after that, we haven’t seen a thing about the game. There were musings the project had gone through a restart with a different development studio, but we hadn’t seen anything from the project after that. It has been an epically long wait…until today. Enjoy!

More is coming in June!

Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming to the PC and PS4.
