 News Post: Miniscule Posted: Fri, 21 Sep 17:36:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: So much stuff going on today.  Yeesh!  Okay.  Let’s go. I don’t consider the PlayStation retro yet, largely because features a ton of 3D stuff, but I’m open to the idea that the event horizon has claimed this portion of the medium’s history.  I suspect if I asked my son he would say that the PS1 is Retro because it is Old, but he’s fucking twelve.  Everything is old compared to him.   We imported Jumping Flash back in the day, so we were overjoyed to see it on the Classic - obviously FF7 is a draw, that’s gonna sell a machine…

Tycho: I feel like a sweatshop that the worker willingly enters constitutes a kind of labor market endgame. Like the opt-in Surveillance State we acknowledge and worship every time we tag a photo, we really have to take a second to think about this.  But nobody has a second.  I deeply resent the fact that one can accurately and succinctly describe the actual world we live in and sound like a fucking AM radio whackjob. It’s true that these are choices people are making, ostensibly with the knowledge that this type of “employment” has none of the strictures commonly…

 News Post: This Is Why I’m Hot Posted: Mon, 17 Sep 18:10:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: We knew that including the actual image I received in the comic would provide delight purely as a hidden object game, but I wasn’t a hundred percent prepared for how viscerally people would feel it.  In the past, I’ve either helped him build a computer or he’s bought them online.  This one isn’t even technically for him, it’s for Gabriel the Younger, and they put the whole thing togetherů together. I try to adhere to a robust moral praxis, but I can’t pretend not to be mesmerized by case lights that sync with your mouse, keyboard, and…

 News Post: My Old Friend Posted: Fri, 14 Sep 07:01:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: I’ve had a chance to check out Cody Blorpfor (esq.) on PS4 and Xbox One X now in Blackout mode, and I’ve had fun everywhere I’ve played it. The Base PS4 gets a workout for sure - I don’t know if it’s some kind of dynamic resolution thing happening or if it’s simply my ocular fluid crystallizing due to my advanced age, but the game really would rather be running on the newer boxes.  The Xbox One X doesn’t give a shit about it, near as I can tell.  I think it could mine Bitcoin in the background.  What I’ve seen online has a good…

Tycho: My feed is jam-packed with amateur, yet still somehow amazing Spider-Man photography.  Technically, I do own it.  It’s one of about three PlayStation 4 discs I own.  It came with the Pro when I upgraded, but I upgraded for Destiny 2, so the box still has plastic on it.  Hopefully his hands and feet will remain sticky until I have a chance to get back in there. I’ve been able to pry Gabe out of it for rounds of Gambit usually, especially once I showed him the Ancient Apocalypse set, but he must have gotten to a good part or something because he is now too…
