Playstation Now on PC Follow up

We mentioned last week on Episode 073 during the conversation about Utomik, that the Playstation Now service allows you to stream/play PS3/4 games on your PC. Here’s what you need to make it happen!

The Forest

Adam has purchased a new game. Check it out!

The NES Classic Edition Is Getting Re-Released This June

The hotly sought after NES Classic Edition is finally getting re-released this June and the SNES Classic Edition is not far behind. Nintendo recently announced that the NES Classic Edition will go back on sale on June 29. The big question here is whether Nintendo will be able to keep up with demand this time around, as the original release of the micro-console was very difficult to come by due to extremely limited stock.

Google Backing Social Network Arcade

Based on an article from Engadget, Google is apparently backing a new social network called Arcade. Set to launch this summer the app will focus on gaming with friends, including a lot of trivia style games, and is NOT tied to any of the existing social media apps out there today. Do we need a social media for gamers?

Cool Gear Alert! Verge Graduation Gift Guide

The Verge has released a nifty graduation gift guide. I’ll take one Mjolnir toolbox, please. Also check out our Valentine’s Gift Guide from back in Episode 6!

Does Music Help You Focus?

According to a 2017 blog post on Northcentral University’s website, music itself — just the notes, not including lyrics — can cause both the left and right sides of your brain to light up simultaneously, which “can maximize learning and improve memory,” according to Dr. Masha Godkin, a professor in the university’s Department of Marriage and Family Sciences.

Reddit’s EarthPorn

An awesome subreddit covering the best images of the earth … but can you believe what you are seeing?

Geek Off:

The Music Of Our Youth!

The Predator

This popular action/horror franchise from the 80’s/90’s is getting a new film and the trailer looks pretty interesting. Plus, it stars Olivia Munn which is never really a bad thing.

Weekly Garnish:
Archive.org’s Internet Arcade

This is just awesome. Old school arcade games you can play right now for free in your browser. And lots of them! The Internet Arcade is a web-based library of arcade (coin-operated) video games from the 1970s through to the 1990s, emulated in JSMAME, part of the JSMESS software package. Containing hundreds of games ranging through many different genres and styles, the Arcade provides research, comparison, and entertainment in the realm of the Video Game Arcade.
