Destiny Diary, Issue 15 for 5/22-5/24: House of Wolves!

If the future of Destiny DLC looks anything like House of Wolves, I think we’re all in for the game we envisioned at the start.

I don’t want to get too deep into things — I’ll do an official review of the content next week — but I’ve found myself pretty pleased with the way Bungie treated this expansion when compared to The Dark Below. I’m most impressed by the voice work (Petra Venj and Variks are great) and the breadth of activities to [...]

How I Got A 100% Sales Close Rate for My SaaS Startup

When we started reaching out to potential customers at KYA about 3 to 4 months ago it was a whole new experience for me, I had never actually been a “salesman” in the typical sense of the word and yet here I was lining up demos for my product with the ultimate goal of getting the publisher to sign up. It was scary to think about at first. But honestly, the more I thought about it the more comfortable I felt. Here’s why:

You want to feel [...]

Mobile Gaming Revenue Expected to Exceed Console Revenue in 2015

This year is looking like it’ll be a good one for mobile gaming. Newzoo, the Amsterdam-based market research firm for the gaming industry, has forecast that the strong growth in mobile gaming during 2014 (a 43 percent rise compared to 2013) will continue during 2015.

This Is The Best Apple Watch Stand You Can Buy

So you just got that shiny new Apple Watch but now, you have a problem: you don’t just want to lay it on your desk to charge or when you’re not using it. I don’t blame you, I didn’t either, which is why when I saw that Twelve South was making an Apple Watch stand I knew I had to have one.

If you aren’t familiar with Twelve South, they make accessories specifically for Apple products. So they make stands for MacBook’s, iPhones, iPads, and now the [...]

Smartwatch Gaming Is Coming But Will It Be A Good Thing?

Smartwatch technology has already moved forward very quickly since its inception and now with many of the top technology companies throwing their hats in the ring such as Apple, Google, and Samsung, we can expect that to accelerate even further.

The Apple Watch dropped late last month and that has put the likes of Google and Samsung on their toes. This increase in competition is the best possible thing for us as consumers as it drives up quality and [...]

Today’s Play: Thoughts on Dark Souls, D4, Never Alone, Deus Ex; This Week’s Schedule

I think I’m actually enjoying this.

In case you missed last week’s post, I’ve committed to trying out a lot of new games — around four or five a week — so that I can experience more than the one game that’s hooked me (hint: starts with “D”, ends with “estiny”). I played four games in the past seven days that I’d never touched before, and aside from one, I thought they were all good, fun games that I plan on coming back to.

The one that isn’t making the cut for [...]

How To Disable Menu Bar Transparency in OS X Yosemite

In OS X it used to be that you could turn off the transparency effect on the OS X menu bar via the Desktop and Screen Saver section in System Preferences. That isn’t the case anymore in OS X Yosemite as Apple has removed that option (sort of — I’ll explain below). Here is how to disable the transparency effect for the menu bar in OS X Yosemite.

In System Preferences > Accessibility > Display, enable the “Reduce transparency” [...]

Destiny Diary, Issue 14 for 5/15-5/17: Patch 1.2.0, Xur’s Goods, and Weekly Strikes

If you’ve tried to jump on Destiny today, you were likely greeted by a large update file. Indeed, Destiny is asking users to download and install a patch, 1.2.0, but this is probably one of the cooler patches you’ll ever have to download for a video game. I don’t want to get into the nitty gritty about specific fixes, but read on for the highlights of what else the patch brought us.

Patch 1.2.0 Faction reward packages won’t turn into shards anymore The [...]
