When I last wrote about the Nintendo Switch my family had two of them. Now we have five! Clearly we need to work on sharing in my tribe. We’re not in the habit of purchasing each family member their own console but the portability of the system demands it. How are we supposed to share […]
Simulations have long been a part of driver education. Back in my day we sat in a classroom equipped with a movie screen that played video of a road course while each student manipulated a set of car like controls to react to situations presented on-screen, such as having a kid run out in front […]
My Nintendo Switch is by far the most played console in my collection. The longer I have it the more I like it. The system is so popular with my family that I purchased 4 of them for Christmas this year. Now everyone has their own and they can stop taking mine! Along with the […]
In my house there are two Nintendo Switches and we have two copies of Splatoon 2. We like to play the game together but of course we only have one Internet connection. At first it seemed like this wasn’t going to work.

Over the years I have owned and used almost every type of headset out there. I started with the basic 3.5mm jack in sets that came with the Walkman. Then, when the original Xbox came out I got my first wireless set. I’ve had Bose, Apple, Samsung, Turtle Beach, Lenovo, Sony, Corsair, and everything in […]
With the Windows 10 creators update you can enable 7.1 surround sound for any headset.
I’ve had the Gameboy (all of them), 3DS (both), GameGear, the PSP (both), and the Vita (both). I used mobile games to quit smoking. Instead of taking a smoke break, I’d go for a walk and play a game for 10 minutes. Instead of smoking after a meal, I took Mario or Sonic out of […]
My wife and I were trying to figure out something cool to do for a family trip. We’d already done Yellowstone, the mountains, the ocean, Disney, you know all the great American family trips…… We were looking for something more personal to us. I mentioned that I had always wanted to go to a game expo.
