Another E3 has come and gone. We have new hardware and software to look forward to. It almost seems like Sony and Microsoft want people to believe that this generation is over and a new one is just beginning. The biggest push in the coming months seems to be VR. This technology has peeled back a layer to reveal another universe. Virtual reality will grow, just as the telegraph grew to the telephone – as the radio to the TV – it will be everywhere.
Another year, another E3. I have been becoming less and less enthused as E3 is used less to show off what games are coming out and used more to show non-gameplay videos to promote pre-orders for games that may or may not come out 2 or 3 years from now. Worse, the last week was such a build up of hype just for E3’s hype. That said, there are still some games I am hoping to see more information on.
Hello 2016, pleased to meet you. I know that some bad stuff is going to happen, I will inevitably lose some people whose work and presence I enjoy, there will be a bunch of loonies telling me to vote for them because they are better than those other loonies, and there will be some things that I really want to be awesome that will totally suck. It is the same every year. However, I don’t want that to sour our relationship. No, today we have just met for the first time and I am going to take the optimistic route, hold out my hand and say “2016, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.“
There I was, October 21, eating cake and ice cream and thinking how great I had it, *flash*, everything changes. My flying skateboard turned into some crappy balance-board with wheels and immediately caught fire. My car no longer flies, I have to remember how to tie my shoes, and worse I must settle for imperfect Pepsi! All this because of some kid and his grampa in a DeLorean. The worse part is nobody believes me that this happened. Insane, right? Goodbye 2015. Continue reading
The bartender says, “we don’t serve time-travelers here.” A time-traveler walks into a bar.
Thank god for hoverboards, self-drying coats, self-lacing shoes, hyper-accurate weather forecasting, dehydrated pizza, and flying cars. I don’t know where I would be without them. I just can’t wait to drink some Pepsi Perfect and watch Max Spielberg’s latest opus, Jaws 19 at the Holomax!
Truely, the future is now.
