Windows 10, Surface, and Comcast

Surface-Pro-3-W10-590x330

Today is the first day of downloading and using windows 10.  So, I have downloaded and have been using now since this morning and so far so good.  I have the MS Surface 3 and the Surface Pro 3 the look and feel is a nice balance of the Windows 7 and 8.1.  The only issue I had was the appearance of the desktop, which is a quick fix for anyone that has used any Windows operating system.  The app store is a bit more robust compared to the tablet app store.  As of right now I’m pleasantly surprised with what I’m seeing.  Now, for the Comcast side, I use Fios for most of my internet needs, but there is also Comcast in the building.  Don’t get me wrong I use Comcast, for television but for internet by no means am I using Comcast.  It took 2.5 hours to download to 58% and that’s just crazy.  I know Fios is more expensive compared to Comcast but not by that much.  I think I’m going to enjoy my Surface more now, I’m really looking forward to streaming from the Xbox One to the Surface or desktop.  I new review of the Surface 3 with Windows 10 will be up in about a month.

Shenmue on Kickstarter

Shenmue 3 is making a comeback

As of yesterday on KICKSTARTER, Ys Net launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring Shenmue 3 back to the fans that have been dying for this game.  It has been 14 years since the last game hit the shelves for Dreamcast.  In my opinion this is what makes Kickstarter so awesome, to be able to bring cult classic games back to the market.  There is a market for these games contrary to the gaming industry thinking, like they know what we want all the time lol.  Back to the Kickstarter, If you are not familiar with Kickstarter, it is basically a crowd sourcing website for ideas.  Projects have a time frame and reward tier based on the donation.  If the project is successful your donation is taken out of your account, if not then nothing is taken.  Once you back a project, you receive updates on that project, mainly just for the backers.  I personally have been using Kickstarter to back all kinds of projects. Here’s where you can donate to Ys net project.  So far they have met their goal of 2 million dollars, but they do have stretch goals.

Ultimately, this game will be coming out now for what platforms remains to be seen.  Right now they just mention PC and PS4, but I would love to play it on Xbox One.  In my opinion, I always thought Xbox was similar to Dreamcast.  More info is available on their Kickstarter site……………..I can’t wait for this game!

Eric Dean Seaton Interview and New Spin-off to OA

Hello Otakus,

So, we have the Eric Dean Seaton interview up for your listening pleasure.  We ran into Mr. Seaton while at C2E2, also BigL and I talk a little about his book, “The Legend of Mantamaji” and how we felt about it.  Check out that show here.  We are thinking about doing a spin off of OA dealing with sports.  When we say sports we don’t mean we talk about sports in American.  No, we talk about those and other cultures sports (cricket, 9-man, Rugby, etc.).  Along with anime sports ( e.g Kuroko’s No Basket, Ace of the Diamond, Baby Steps, and so on),  We are really stoked about this addition to the family.  So, keep an eye out for these projects and more of our C2E2 and other shows.

Mykey Fresh here and this is the first of our C2E2 coverage, we have a few interviews coming out.  On a personal note, I really enjoyed C2E2.  We met some really awesome people, the city of Chicago was great to a couple of Jersey guys.  I definitely have to make a trip out there to really get to know the city.
