Death Stranding SDCC 2019 Trailer July 29, 2019

Apologies for not posting more content from San Diego Comic Con 2019 sooner, but this trailer is too good for us to neglect. Death Stranding is aiming to be one of the most unique games ever released for the PlayStation 4. Directed by the legendary Hideo Kojima, it was sorely missed when Sony skipped hosting an E3 Press Event this year. Thankfully, we have a new trailer from SDCC 2019 and now I can share it with all of you.

This trailer focuses on the character of Heartman, a man who can spend much of the day straddling the boundary between life and death.

Death Stranding is coming November 8th, 2019 exclusively to the PS4.

During San Diego Comic Con 2019 the developers working on Iron Man VR for the PS4 published this short preview of the game. It includes some snippets from the game’s director, Ryan Payton and some of the guys from Marvel Entertainment. If you were wondering how this game was intending to make you feel like you were inside an Iron Man suit, you need to watch this.

Iron Man VR is coming exclusively to PSVR.

Halo Outpost Discovery Part 4 – Halo Week 2019 July 28, 2019

Mel Brooks once said, “Merchandise, merchandise, merchandise. That’s where the real money is made!” I think he learned that from George Lucas. As Halo Week 2019 comes to a close we dedicate the last part of our video series about the Philadelphia Halo: Outpost Discovery show to the merchandise booth. We’re going to talk about what was for sale at the show, show off everything we picked up while there, and mention a few things that weren’t for sale that we thought should have been.

Before we wrap up or coverage from Outpost Discovery completely, there’s one lingering question from the show floor we haven’t been able to answer. Take a look at this.

If you happen to work for Outpost Discovery can you post a comment below with the answer?

Hope you all enjoyed Halo Week 2019. With Halo: Infinite, a possible Outpost Discovery return, and a new Xbox console announced for next year I only have one remaining question, “Should we bring Halo Week back for 2020?”

After spending the better part of a day in front of an editor and a camera, I finally finished the third part of our look at Halo: Outpost Discovery in Philadelphia. In this part, we take a look at the last two experiences at the Outpost, Combat Deck (Laser Tag) and Marksman Training.

Also, since I’ve been discussing it so much over the past few videos, here’s a closer look at the unique Dog Tags attendees could earn while at Outpost Discovery.

Halo Week 2019 is not over. One more video from Outpost Discovery is in development. Next time, we’ll be talking about the Merchandise available for sale at the show and give our final thoughts about the show itself.

My Favorite Classic Halo Media – Halo Week 2019 July 24, 2019

Welcome back to Halo Week 2019, where we are talking all things Halo. While working on a different article for this site, I stumbled on so much great independently produced Halo content I felt I had to feature some of it here.

In 2004, hype for Halo 2 was picking up and a month before the game was released, the now defunct Spike TV channel broadcasted a television show called The Ultimate Gamer. In it, a Halo fan got to live out the dreams of every Halo fan.

I remembered watching this show the night it first aired and for years I thought this show was a piece of media that would forever be lost. It turns out, it had survived and I’m so happy it is. Even though a lot of information in it out of date, it’s a great time capsule and makes me think back to how exciting the wait was for Halo 2.

While we’re on the subject of otherwise lost media there’s no bigger poster child for that (well, other than the BBC) than the now defunct G4TV. What started as a great television network for gaming was totally ruined after its corporate merger with TechTV. That having been said, Halo 2‘s release happened before all that, and in anticipation for that game’s much-anticipated release G4TV devoted an entire day of content to Halo on the day before of Halo 2‘s release. It was celebrated with bumpers like these:

Icons was by far my favorite series during G4’s heyday. It focused on the history of game development with episodes focused on either major game franchises, a major event, or the history of a studio. This episode of Icons, produced by G4, focused on the history of Bungie, the original creators of Halo.

Every Halo fan remembers where they were in 2007 when Halo 3 launched. The game promised players the chance to Finish the Fight that began so many years earlier, and preorders were through the roof. The guys over at PBC Productions (famous for creating iconic series such as Captain S and Little Miss Gamer) visited their local game store to document the biggest game release of its time!

Finally, most people cite the Halo 3: ODST TV commercial as an example of one of the best video game commercials of all time. While we don’t agree with the fact it is THE best, it certainly cracked our top ten of best commercials of all time. Here’s a behind the scenes look at what it took to make that commercial.

Hope you all enjoyed this trip down memory road. More Halo content, including more videos from Outpost Discovery, is on its way for Halo Week 2019!

Important news for users of Apple devices this morning, Apple has released updates for everything they currently make late last night. The latest update they released for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users is iOS 12.4.

The update includes an important new feature that allows users to transfer system data from old devices to new ones directly. Previously, system transfers could only be made by loading device backups from iTunes or iCloud. This new update gives the iDevice a sorely needed feature other devices like the Nintendo 3DS and PS4 have offered for years.

iOS 12.4 can currently be installed through your device’s software update feature or through iTunes.
