Game On: Antiquated CRT TVs deserve better than a landfill

UPDATED: Thu., Sept. 22, 2022

Before you throw out your old cathode-ray tube TV, you might consider the possibility that it’s worth something to the right person. A few weeks ago, I was thrift shopping with a friend when he pointed out an old 24-inch Samsung CRT in the corner with a prominent “FREE” sticker tacked on. I gave it a quick look and determined it was a quality set – a flatscreen manufactured in 2003 – hours of usage were presumably low, burn-in was unlikely, and equipped with plenty of ports for plugging in all sorts of old game consoles, DVD players and VCRs.

Game On: Sonic Frontiers has me cautiously optimistic

Despite my love-hate relationship with the series, I’ve been rather silent regarding the upcoming Sonic Frontiers even with tons of new information and gameplay videos spilling in over the past few weeks. The first footage of the game, revealed by IGN on May 31, was uninspiring – all it did was show Sonic the Hedgehog scaling a massive obelisk and grinding his way down before exploring some empty open plains.

Game On: Dead Island 2 looks less bleak and more fun

Details have finally been trickling in for Dead Island 2 after a very long wait. The series debuted in 2011, with standalone expansion “Dead Island: Riptide” being released in 2013 and mediocre spin-off “Escape Dead Island” launching in 2014. Dead Island 2 was originally slated for 2015, but faced numerous delays and was eventually handed off to a different developer entirely to be reworked from the ground up.
