Earlier in the week, we reported on the unexpected return of the Moogle Chocobo Carnival in Final Fantasy XV.  I had been meaning to check it out the first time it launched, but I wasn’t able to.  I’m so greatful to Square Enix for bringing it back with the recent patch!

So what is in this carnival, what kinds of things can you unlock, and is it worth your time?  Let’s check it out together, shall we?  All gameplay footage is provided with full video commentary.

I’ve been getting lots of requests recently to resume our Let’s Play of the Final Fantasy games, and I’m happy to say that we will be resuming our Final Fantasy X Let’s Play soon.

Final Fantasy XV is out now on Xbox One and PS4.

Sony UMD Retrospective July 19, 2017

In the mid to late 2000s, Sony intended to make the PlayStation Portable the ultimate portable media device. Not only could it play games, it could also play digital music and movies on the go.  To show its versatility, Sony bundled an initial shipment of PSP systems with the UMD version of the film Spider-Man 2, one of the best movies of the previous year.

Shortly after the PSP launched, the UMD Video format saw higher than expected sales, and various movie studios started to release their films in the UMD video format.

So how good was UMD Video, what kinds of movies saw release for it, and what caused it to die?  Sit back and enjoy our complete retrospective on the UMD Video format.

Tales from IT – What Happens When You Use a Third Party MacBook Power Adapter June 29, 2017

Posted by Maniac in Site Videos, Tales from IT.
add a comment

Long time readers will know this site never has anything good to say about third-party accessories and today is no exception. In today’s new Tales from IT, Maniac tells a story about a time when his advice was given, subsequently ignored, and what the consequences of ignoring his advice were.

Unlike typical Tales from IT, this was not so much a cute story about the silly things that can happen on the job as much as it is a warning to everyone not to buy important accessories from third parties. That money you believe you are saving buying parts from third party resellers is just going to be wasted when you discover the part you bought either doesn’t work at all or breaks your system when you get it.
