REVIEWS Satellite Reign Review
A spiritual successor to Syndicate Wars that more than lives up to its legacy.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Review
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers the first real taste of new Star Wars gaming content since the franchise was purchased by the Disney Corporation. This begs the question: Is it Han Sololicious? Or Jar Jar Bombad?

PREVIEWS Hob Preview
If I had to describe Hob in a simple title it would be "Darksiders Jr." The title from Runic developers, whose prior games are the Torchlight series, were nervous about delivering a game that is so far from their comfort zone.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Understanding The Relationship Between Foxconn, PlayStation, And Gamers

Posted on Friday, October 11 @ 13:05:05 PST by

That Sony, Microsoft, Apple, Nintendo, and dozens of other corporations use Foxconn to manufacture vast amounts of electronic goods is not shameful. They're corporations. At the top-level they care about the profit to be made, not the people putting together their wares.

What's shameful is how much of globalization remains so completely hidden from view, under lock and key, for our safety and sanity. In addition to the food industry, consumers should pay closer attention to where their favorite gadgets come from.

People are working somewhere at the other end of the video game supply chain (or the Taco Bell supply chain or the fine leather goods supply chain), but the companies that contract with them to bring cool games, gadgets, and phones to us won't feel the need to notify us of situations like these.

It just feels gross. We take for granted that university life in, let's say, more developed countries can be more easily compared to a longterm live-in daycare. I'm sure we have more bottles than they do in China, at least. Do XIT students get to take home a PS4 after their "internship"?

My guess is no, they certainly weren't paid... but allow me a few conceits: I'm not suggesting you quit video games, but maybe that $400 console comes with an extra tag that tells you about a student who spent a week cutting her fingers and wondering why her parents sent her to school in the first place.

The truth is that people all over the world would love a job like the one at Foxconn... to a point. They'd love having any work at all or food to eat or a roof over their head, so you can't stop globalization, but you can choose to be conscious of it.
