Why the Racksoy Microphone Mic Suspension Boom? I’d been looking for a mic boom for ages, the main place of interest was amazon, but the main problem on there are the reviews. I tried asking on Twitter if anyone recommended one, even asked a YouTuber who, as I should have guessed, ignored my question.

I have a new obsession. No, not Fallout 4. Yes, I’ve played it quite a bit and reached about level 32 or something, I probably racked up about 40 hours in the first week, but that’s not what my new obsession is that has been keeping me busy for the past week.

The Park is a narrative thriller, I’m not sure you can call it a game since technically, you don’t really play it. You’re a woman looking for a child in an amusement park, but the twist to the park is that it hasn’t been open for a long time.

Kingdom is a great pixel 2D scroller with tower defense style gameplay. The idea is for your King or Queen to build up some protection to their Kingdom, so that nasty things of the night can come and take the crown, because, without a crown, there can be no King/Queen!

This is one of those blog posts I just have to do while the thought is still fresh in my mind. If not and I wait until later, I will have forgotten what I wanted to say.

I should really start blogging more… and getting news content on the site, but anyway. The Witcher 3 is one of this years most anticipated games, but if you haven’t pre-ordered, how are you going to get it?

I’ve started up the Sims 4 series again which I planned to some time ago, but I waited until the Get to Work expansion was released which I bought on CDKeys for under £20 and is where I begin again.

A Minecraft mod that I’ve been waiting to come to 1.8 is finally in the process of being a thing. Backpacks is only in beta and there’s a slight graphical conflict, but it seems to have potential!

There are obvious differences between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but what is it you like about each console? Forget the games, this isn’t about which game looks better or has a higher or lower resolution and frames per second, it’s about features and what they do.
The main feature I wanted in the new generation consoles was social sharing. I’m not a bragger or elitist, I just like sharing my experience and what I encounter in video games, so tweeting pics or uploading videos was something I most anticipated.
The PlayStation 4 does this very well, because, as it’s advertising campaign said, it’s “4 the players”. Sony knows that gamers like to show off their gaming, whether it be streaming on Twitch or a picture of something awesome on Twitter.
The PS4 is better at sharing pics, but when it comes to uploading video, you’re pretty limited and it doesn’t always work. That’s where the XB1 takes a slight edge. Although the PS4 can record up to 15 minutes, uploading it is quite dodgy and SHAREFactory doesn’t seem compatible with YouTube.
You can record the last 5 minutes of your game with the Xbox One, create clips and either upload it to the Xbox UPLOAD service or even OneDrive which you can then view on any compatible device. You can then tweet a link to the clip which is hosted on Xbox.com or if you’ve also uploaded it to OneDrive, you could download the file to upload to YouTube.
In terms of tech and features, I think the PS4 edges ahead of the XB1. It’s easier to navigate and apparently has graphical advantages (PS4 has more ‘foliage’ than the XB1 version of Grand Theft Auto 5), but it’s the social sharing (even Twitch) that makes the PS4 the winner for me.
