As promised earlier this week, Apple has just released major updates for the Apple Watch, Apple TV and iPhone platforms.

The updates include an incredible amount of new features including the ability to alter and delete messages sent from your iPhone.

The updates can be selected right now. However, I must make a note that you will not be able to update your watch to WatchOS 9 until after your iPhone has upgraded to iOS 16.

Mac and iPad owners will find incremental updates for their platforms today (containing mostly bug fixes and compatibility resolutions), however their next generation OS updates will not be released until October.

Gaming History You Should Know – History of Fatal Fury September 12, 2022

I know what you’re thinking. It’s not Sunday and we already talked about the Neo-Geo. So what gives? Well, we revealed we’ll be celebrating the history of the NEO-GEO platform on the site throughout the week. Today, we’ll be talking about one of the most recognized game franchises on the NEO-GEO platform, Fatal Fury.

Across the web I found three different documentary series I believe could be considered the definitive history lessons on the franchise. Rather than decide which one you should watch, I decided to highlight every one of them and let you decided for yourselves which you think is the best.

First off, we‘re going to highlight the work of Matt McMuscles, the YouTube Channel most known for the What Happened? series. He’s also an enormous fan of the Fatal Fury franchise and did a great documentary on the series that everyone should watch.

Next we’re going to be highlighting another great YouTube channel, Thorgi’s Arcade. In the second episode of his series on Fighting Games, he was asked by his fans to cover Fatal Fury. Give it a watch!

Last up, we want to highlight the work of the NeoGeoNow, an incredible YouTube channel focused on the beloved platform. He produced a three-episode documentary on the franchise, focusing on a new era with each episode. I’m sure we’ll be featuring more of this channel’s work later on this week.

Hope you’re enjoying our week on the Neo-Geo! More content will be coming throughout the week!

Rare DLC for inFAMOUS: Second Son and inFAMOUS: First Light Released to All September 12, 2022

A lot of people don’t know this, but when the PlayStation 4 was first announced, the franchise I was most excited to see a new game released for the platform wasn’t Uncharted or Resistance, it was actually the new inFAMOUS titles.

In the open-world inFAMOUS games, you played as a urban superhero (or Magic City Man if you prefer). You chose if you wanted to use your powers for selfish reasons or for the common good. When the first two games (and one digital expansion pack) released on PS3, they really impressed me. When inFAMOUS: Second Son was revealed alongside the PS4, it became a must-buy for me when I got the platform.

Each game came with download codes for exclusive content to those who preordered the games. In the years since the game released, the exclusive preorder DLC (including an exclusive story-based mission and character skins) were never offered as a separate download and as such are rare experiences. Now, I’m happy to announce developer Sucker Punch have made that preorder content free for anyone to download off the PlayStation store. If you haven’t played the game without this DLC, now would be a great time for a new playthrough.

Here’s to hoping this is a trend that continues. I know a major component of Until Dawn was only playable to people who preordered the game digitally off the PlayStation Store. It would be nice to finally play those scenes.

inFAMOUS: Second Son and inFAMOUS: First Light are out now for the PS4.
