It has been no secret to most long term visitors to this site we are super fans of Bawls high-caffeinated soda. It has been a staple of LAN parties everywhere for nearly two decades. Earlier this year, the company announced a new flavor was being added to their soda lineup, Cherry Cola.

Bawls was nice enough to provide us a case of their soda for this review. What do you say we try it? Just be aware we are going to say Bawls a lot…

Stay tuned we might be doing more game streaming this week with our supply of Bawls at our side!

We are a week away from the release of the first generational Pokemon games made specifically for the Nintendo Switch, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. Here’s the game’s newest trailer. Not everything in the trailer is gameplay footage but I think it succeeds in presenting the games’ world. Take a look and see for yourselves.

We were able to secure ourselves a regular copy of the retail edition of Death Stranding at a midnight release from our local GameStop. Let’s see what’s in the box, shall we?

Just want to give a heads up that there is a Day 1 patch for this game. Make sure to get it before you start playing. Save games prior to the patch are not compatible with the post patched game.

Death Stranding is out now on PS4. Its coming to PC in 2020.

Gamers have been waiting for Death Stranding for years and at midnight tonight, their wait will be over. To hold you guys over, here’s the game’s latest commercial. It was made by the studio responsible for the hit tv show Rick and Morty and it is just hilarious.

We will try to do a midnight unboxing of the game after we get our hands on it. If you liked the animation I’m happy to say Rick and Morty‘s new season should be starting Sunday.

Death Stranding releases at midnight for the PS4. Its coming to the PC in 2020.

Gears 5 Title Update 2 Released November 7, 2019

A major title update with lots of bug fixes has just been released for Gears 5. You can check the entire list of patches and fixes here.

This is a much needed update due to the fact game stability in multiplayer has been an issue ever since launch. It’s also one of the big reasons I haven’t finished playing the game, the game would frequently ignore my player progress, even in the single player campaign. Microsoft and the Coalition have promised this will be accompanied by a server-side patch which will take place over the next few hours. If you happened to lose progress in multiplayer, you may not see your progress restored until after the server patch.

You might want to free up some system space for this update. For example, if you are using an Xbox One X and had the previous title update, the new one may require a download of over two GB.

Gears 5 is out now on PC and Xbox One.

iOS and iPadOS 13.2.2 Released November 7, 2019

A minor but VERY important update has just been released for the iPhone and iPad and I recommend all users who had version 13.2 installed to upgrade as soon as possible.

The new update comes with all the bug fixes and improvements that were included with 13.2, as well as the support for the new AirBuds, and fixes the issues that users were having with HomePod devices. No update is currently needed for the Apple TV, I’m assuming tvOS wasn’t affected by the HomePod bug.

If you already had 13.2 installed, the update shouldn’t weigh in at more than 60-80MB. You can install it right now using either your device’s software update option or iTunes.

Last week, we continued our blind playthrough of Control on the PS4. In this video which we regret we did not publish here sooner we work with the Janitor to clean up The Oldest House’s maintenance sector. Beware the clog!

Control is out now for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

The Making of Death Stranding November 6, 2019

We are days away from the release of the mysterious Death Stranding, a game directed by the creator of Metal Gear, Hideo Kojima. Hopes are high for this game and it’s previews have not yet revealed just how we will be expected to play this game.

Up until this point my favorite documentary looking inside of the work of Hideo Kojima was a forty minute documentary included in the MGS 4 Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray bonus disc. This video was produced by the BBC, and it has a really decent production quality. Hopefully in fifty years time this video won’t get deleted like the BBC deleted classic episodes of Doctor Who.

Death Stranding is coming November 8th to the PS4. Its coming to PC in 2020.

Weeks earlier, Rockstar Energy Drink announced a promotion where they would offer exclusive Gears 5 downloadable content in specially marked cans of Rockstar Energy Drink. A few weeks ago, we reviewed one of the very few cans we could find on sale. After several weeks of searching, we finally found ANOTHER specially marked can of Rockstar Energy Drink, this time in a can of Energy Punch, a flavor we have never tried.

So here’s our fist ever taste of Rockstar Energy Punch. Has the search been worth it?

Gears 5 is out now for PC and Xbox One.
