Time To Stop Pussy Footing Around... DC Bait & Switches... Again

Oh no true believers (wait... wrong company... just go with it...) DC isn't satisfied to only have one screw up get all the attention this week.  Having advertised a book under one artist and then deliver it under another.  They should totally put someone in charge of watching out for errors like this.

Microsoft Announces: X-Box One


For good reason, X-Box was a popular topic this week, as Microsoft announced their new next-gen console - The X-Box One.  Love it or hate it, everyone is talking about it and we had a few popular write-ups this week on news about the system.  Granted other sites turned tweet length information into entire articles, we kept our coverage a little more packaged.

What Microsoft Did Wrong at the X-Box Reveal

In what may be an interesting look at how the new console was received, our most popular X-Box One article talked about how Microsoft could have handled the Reveal better.

X-Box One Questions Answered

Answering the questions that should have been covered at the Reveal, we look at the 'always online' issue, playing used games, backwards compatibility, tech specs, will my console be able to hover as (wait... what?  ok, we made that last one up).

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
