In this episode I discuss the beta release and how they are judged and critiqued.
Uncharted out Tomb Raidered Tomb Raider. Then Tomb Raider out Uncharted Uncharted. Now Uncharted could out Tomb Raider Tomb Raider and out Uncharted Uncharted. Tomb Raider revolutionized a genre. Uncharted risked becoming “Dude Raider” but instead re-revolutionized action adventure. I’ll explain in this podcast.

On this episode I wanted to take a look at most of the headphones I have used and give an overview on how they work for gaming. I know I left out some great brands and options, Beyerdynamics, Steel Series, Logitech to name a few. I didn’t include them because I didn’t have an experience with them. That said hopefully the conversation will help decide on the type or style of headphone you are looking for.
Here are the headsets/headphones I will discuss today.

Sennheiser HD Pro 280
Sennheiser HD Pro 380
Audio Technica m50x

This episode Mike talks about content being locked behind Amiibo support, specifically Zelda, but also touches on Splatoon. Second Segment he hits on Amazon Prime vs Gamers Club unlocked, and what impact this has on trade in values and the Physical vs. Digital argument.
The Oculus Rift and it’s consumer release has become the topic of conversation since they announced the $599 price tag. With this price tag the internet got angry, and people got angry at the internet(people whom are also on the internet). Accusations of why people were angry got tossed around and everyone pointed fingers, myself included. But, I wanted to at least try to clarify my stance as an Oculus user and early adopter of the DK2.
This episode I tackle gamers that think every game needs to be a game that they want to play. I also discuss gaming headsets and what direction I will take with my future purchases.

Destiny 2 can’t come soon enough; that feels weird to say barely a year after release and a game I have spent more than 300 hours with. Recently there have been quotes from Bungie and Activision that are a cause for concern about support of the current release. This could also mean is all hands on deck for Destiny 2. Bungie wasn’t going to be able to support both current and last gen systems forever and it seems this is a period of transition. I discuss on this episode of Cereal at Night.
This episode Mike jumps into the inability for people to not argue about resolution or where people choose to play games, PC gaming GPUs and what performance to expect, and the show is littered with references back and forth about the pros and cons of PC and Console gaming. Enjoy.
