Download

The guys hit back this week a day late, but they are on fire. They discuss about having a Patreon show that is just them talking smack about each other. That would probably get a lot of listeners. Steven talks about the Windows Classic Shell, which gives them the Windows 7 start menu. Best thing about it, it’s free. Plus, they follow up with some news about the GPU issue from last week. Samsung and AMD answer to the growing issue.

Microsoft, more aptly Xbox, has an exclusivity issue that is causing them to lag behind Sony. From the outlook of 2018, it doesn’t seem like it is going to get any better. Is it possible that they will acquire another company to compete? The outlook may surprise you. With an article from Polygon, the guys discuss that Microsoft needs to do something. Not to mention, they talk about the big news of the day and have interesting random stories at the end.
