I guess 13.1.1 can be put in the “blink and you’ll miss it category because earlier today Apple release a new software update for the iPhone and iPad.

13.1.2 contains nondescript bug fixes and security improvements for the iPhone and iPad. Depending on your device it could weigh in at around 45-70MB

Maniac’s Kitchen – Rockstar Energy Drink Gears 5 Promotion Taste Test September 29, 2019

Earlier this month, we reported that Rockstar Energy Drink was partnering with Microsoft to offer free codes for exclusive Gears 5 downloadable content (DLC) to players who purchase specially marked cans of the beverage. However, in the time since we wrote that bit of news it has been next to impossible for us to find those marked cans of the beverage in any of our local shops or retail stores.

Eventually, we were able to find ONE flavor of Rockstar Energy Drink that had the Gears 5 marking in our area, this one is called the Pure Zero flavor (due to the fact it advertises it has 0 calories). We never tried REG before, so we decided to give it a taste test on camera to see how well it stacks up against other beverages.

Gears 5 is out now for Xbox One and PC.

A major system update I have been waiting for has been released for the iPad. It includes a revolutionary new interface inspired by macOS, support for the new Dark Mode, improved Apple Pencil support, and a lot more! It also adds support for the new Apple Arcade service that originally launched on the iPhone last week. It weighs in at around 1.9GB.

iPhone users who upgraded to iOS 13 last week will find a new software update, version 13.1 is now up for download as well. This update includes the last few features promised in iOS 13 included improved battery life, Airdrop and Airplay improvements. If you already have iOS 13 installed, it’ll weigh in at around 500MB.

We’re not finished yet. Apple TV owners will also need to update the most recent units to unlock device support for the new Apple Arcade. You can download this right now using your streaming box’s software update feature.

iOS 13 Released, Apple Arcade Now Live September 19, 2019

If you own a recent model iPhone, particularly the iPhone 6S or newer, Apple has just released a brand-new operating system for your Phone. Rejoice, Dark Mode is finally here!

iOS 13 includes a slew of new features that are being introduced this year including support for the new premium Apple Arcade service which launches today. Other features include a limited Animoji support for older devices and new Photo editing options.

You can download this update right now through your device’s Software Updafe feature or through iTunes. Just be aware the download will range at about 1.8-1.9 GB so you’ll need to be on WiFi before you attempt to install it yourself.

iOS 13 will only be compatible with iPhones. iPad, Apple TV, Apple Watch, and Mac owners will be getting all-new distinct operating systems which will be released over the next few weeks. iPadOS, something I’ve been looking forward to installing on my iPad, was originally planned to be released on September 30th, but that release may be moved up to September 24th.

If you plan to buy an iPhone 11 model phone (including the Pro, Max or regular model) your device will already include iOS 13 preinstalled. Those new iPhones will be in stores starting tomorrow.

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 E3/Gamescom 2019 Demo Video September 18, 2019

We are a little behind on this one but I felt reposting it was absolutely merited. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines remains to this day one of my favorite PC games of all time. It’s dark themes, incredible art style, varied gameplay, rocking soundtrack, and intriguing characters set it aside from any other game I had ever played. Over a decade later, we are finally getting a sequel on the PC and modern consoles! Best announcement ever!

I was so psyched to hear about this announcement but up until this point we hadn’t seen an in-depth look at the game. In fact, the initial E3 2019 PC Trailer was so brief an extended trailer had to be released almost immediately afterwards. Questions about the game remained in my head. Would the new game’s art style match up with the original, especially since it takes place in a different city? How will the game continue the story from the first game since this was an entirely new player character?

Paradox has released a let’s play of the demo they produced for E3 and Gamescom 2019. After watching it I can say my questions are answered. Take a look and I’ll bet your questions will be answered too!

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is coming early 2020 to PC, Xbox One and PS4.
