Tales from IT – How PC Gaming Prepared me for IT March 20, 2019

Welcome back to another Tales from IT. This is going to be a bit of a different kind of Tale in the fact we aren’t going to be discussing the events from one particular job, but instead talk about our history. Recently, I was asked to perform a task at work I had done tons of times before and I quipped about the first time I had ever done that particular task and why. I had done it because I wanted to play video games against my friends. I then realized I owed a lot to my gaming experiences, and since formal computer classes were never offered during my primary school education, gaming had taught me more useful life skills than anything I ever learned in school.

So where did my IT experiences come from, and how did it prepare me for a career? Watch below and find out.

Since the Nintendo Switch can function as both a home and portable game console, and many new players may have gotten a Switch in the post-Christmas shopping season, I thought the time was perfect to talk about some of the best accessories for the console. In this video, we’re going to review many of the Nintendo Switch’s accessories, why you should or shouldn’t get them, and where you should get them from.

There are a few ground rules to this list. First off we acknowledge that people will not use the console in Tablet (Portable) mode, and any accessories we list as being only useful for Tablet mode will be mentioned in the video. With that all said, let’s take a look at the best accessories for the Nintendo Switch!

We are continuing our Let’s Play of Spider-Man on the PS4 Pro. In this part we check out some of the game’s research stations, battle with the Shocker (who shocks people), get evicted, and try to find a place to crash for the night.

All gameplay footage includes full video commentary.

Eagle eyed viewers may notice this part has a resolution drop from previous parts. That is due to the fact we were unhappy with the framerate we were getting at higher resolutions. We will be tweaking the resolution over the next few parts to see what we like best.
