Spider-Man was released on the PS4 just over a week ago, but all retail Collector’s Editions of the game sold out months earlier. We were lucky enough to secure a preorder for the game, but due to the fact that Insomniac warned players the NOT to open the Collector’s Edition until after completing the game we decided not to record an unboxing of the CE until we had completed it.

A week later we are ready to take a look at this game and give it the unboxing it deserves in glorious 4K. Be aware there will be a very big spoiler in this video.

We will do a review and comparison of the two art books in the future.

Spider-Man is out now exclusively for the PS4.

Tonight, Cinemark theaters across the US held a special one-night-only event and Maniac attended it. Making of a Tomb Raider was a special documentary in the same vein as shows like Ultimate Beastmaster and Ultimate Ninja Warrior. A professional athlete and base jumper was tasked to replicate some of the same challenges Lara Croft made famous in her classic games. People who attended the premiere were promised exclusive DLC that could be used in the full retail version of the game.

So how was the documentary? Was it worth the price of a full movie ticket? What did everyone else in the theater think of it? Were there any issues at the theater? Watch our exclusive review below and find out.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is coming September 14th, 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

How to Get September’s Legendary Pokemon Codes from Best Buy September 4, 2018

As we reported previously, this month’s Legendary Pokémon distribution is taking place at Best Buy retail stores across the country. Unlike GameStop stores which are far better suited for these events, it can be very confusing for gamers to get these free codes from a large store. Where do you go, who do you talk to, and what do you do if the person who you’re talking to has no idea what you’re talking about? Maniac went to Best Buy to get answers.

Apologies for not having a lot of original content on the site last week. A week ago, we recorded an unboxing of the PS4 version of Shenmue I&II in glorious 4K. However, due to technical issues with uploading 4K content, we were unable to upload the video until now.

This is going to be more than just a simple unboxing. We are going to look at the packaging, the disc and the included poster all while talking about the franchise’s past, present and future.

Shenmue I&II is out now for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Let’s Play the First Hour of Shenmue August 21, 2018

While he has heard for years about the greatness of Shenmue, Maniac never owned a Dreamcast and was never able to play the original Sega Classic. Today, that issue has been rectified. Shenmue I & II was re-released today and can be purchased on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. To celebrate, Maniac played through the first hour of the first Shenmue blind with no guide and no guide.

We’re going to do this Let’s Play on the PlayStation 4 Pro in 1080p HD. The game was not augmented for 4K UHD or HDR so playing it on the Xbox One X or PS4 Pro should not make much of a difference. As usual, all gameplay is provided with full picture-in-picture video commentary.

Shenmue I & II is out now on the PS4 and Xbox One.

Tales from IT – Dealing With The Red Ring of Death July 27, 2018

We’re going to switch positions for today’s Tales from IT, and talk about a major issue I had to walk myself through. The Xbox 360 was a great console with a lot of great games. However, two out of every three Xbox 360 consoles would completely fail for no reason after just a few months. My first Xbox 360 failed after just four months of regular use, and at the time it failed Microsoft would not acknowledge any hardware issues with the console.

I was a broke college student who spent the last of his money on a very expensive console that broke for no reason. How could I get it fixed? This is without a doubt one of the most frustrating personal stories I will ever tell, and over a decade later the time has come to tell it.

How to Connect an Older Console to a New SmartTV July 24, 2018

Got a new How To video today, produced by popular demand. Several viewers have been leaving me comments over the past year with questions that revolve around an inability to find component or composite inputs on their newer 4K Smart Televisions. Earlier game consoles like the Nintendo 64 and PlayStation 1 used composite-out cables to connect to a television. Later consoles like the Wii or original model Xbox 360 supported high definition and progressive scan video using component cables. The number one question I’ve been getting asked is, “Where are these inputs on my new TV?”
