Another wave of Xbox One Updates include custom Gampics

Another wave of Xbox One Updates include custom GampicsIf there's one thing that's bothered me about Xbox Live since I first plugged in an Xbox 360 and hit start on Star Trek Legacy, it's the service's unwillingness to put user generated content up for everyone to see. Gamerpics have been the poster child for this problem. Someone inside the company seems to share my disdain for them. Xbox One owners are getting the chance to replace them with their own photos, mercifully.

A Taste of Mass Effect Andromeda has me wanting more

A Taste of Mass Effect Andromeda has me wanting moreBioware finally takes the blanket of secrecy fully off Mass Effect Andromeda this week. It’s impossible to overstate how popular the Mass Effect franchise is. I have friends with weapons from the game tattooed on their forearm (Hello Stein.) Members of my family have insisted on sending me home from a party early so that I could play the first three games in the series. Yes, I’m that guy amongst a sea of gaming fans who has managed to skip every game in the series until now. Don’t look at me that way. I didn’t have an Xbox 360 when the first Mass Effect arrived. By the time the last one was available I was living on my own. Rent payments and Ramen came first.

Saturday Night @ the Movies: Get Out review

Saturday Night @ the Movies: Get Out reviewSpeaking from personal experience, now is an awkward time to be an African American. In my lifetime, race shed its 1,000-pound gorilla suit. It’s a slow stalking predator these days, an always-present, but seldom talked about reality. For reasons related to white houses and riots, it’s back at the forefront and ripe for exploration in culture. Take Get Out for instance.
