Oculus Rift and virtual reality

Rocksmith (Xbox 360)

Sennheiser CX-300 II Precision

My previous pair of Sennheisers CX-300s lasted me almost three years of heavy daily use, mangling in pockets and travel. I think that’s pretty amazing, especially since it’s also my first pair of headphones not put aside because of snapped

Migration woes

Due to the number of people having to change their Xbox 360s, I am surprised the topic of migrating to a new console hasn’t been talked about more. I’ve been through it a couple of times, but only this latest
