All Hail PS4’s Sleep Mode

Editorial, Games / Comments Off on All Hail PS4’s Sleep Mode

PS4

And praise be to the Suspend/Resume function.

Childbirth is a miracle. I’ve seen a tiny human being come out of another human being twice – the first emerging like a stone skimming over water, the second grumpily being pulled out after refusing to budge, both heralded by the battlecry of a woman adding a +1 to the world with thunderous determination  – and it’s really something. And by really something I mean completely changing your view of yourself and the Universe, but it’s a more relatable summary.

Having kids reframes your world in the best, most exhausting ways possible, but one of the biggest hits comes to gaming time. The nightly hours playing TimeSplitters are a memory so ancient they might as well be from another dimension. Even finishing a game becomes a novelty, and up until recently there was no solution to the frequent sudden instances where the game has to go off now. Thankfully, Sony has solved this with a firmware addition that should be renamed Every Dad’s Best Friend – the glory and brilliance of PS4’s Sleep and Suspend mode.

VIFF 2015

Just a heads up Vancouver! In case you’ve been living under a rock you know that the Vancouver International Film Festival is happening again right now! This will be my second year in attendance with a pass and I couldn’t be more excited. Stay tuned to this space over the next two weeks for reviews from the films I’m seeing.

There are a lot of interesting choices this year and you should make some time to see some of them. Lots of people work very hard to put this thing on, the least we can all do is attend! So head over to the VIFF website and plan a day to see a film or three. It’s good for you. Maybe I’ll see you there.

Zootopia Poster is full of Animal Puns

News / Comments Off on Zootopia Poster is full of Animal Puns

Zootopia

The direct of Zootopia, Byron Howard, has released the first poster for the movie. It seems to take place in a world with anthropomorphic animals. In a Disney movie. Weird, right? Is also seems like the primary industry in that world is pun manufacturing. Also weird for a Disney movie. There’s gotta be more to it, right? Some vast conspiracy.

We’ll find out just how deep this mystery runs next spring.
