I cancelled my copy of Sunset: Overdrive after much humming and hawing. I didn’t think it looked like my kind of game but then an Xbox One suddenly entered my life and I thought I needed a title or two to justify owning the console.
I wasn’t planning to own an Xbox One until Quantum Break and/or Halo 5: Guardians made their debuts. With that in mind, I pulled the trigger on Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive during this year’s E3 sale. As release dates for both titles approached, I returned one and cancelled the other. I’ll wait for the $30 price point.
I cancelled Sunset Overdrive’s pre-order for a handful of reasons. Part of it was the less than stellar impressions from personalities that I trust. Then there was the fact that I’m in a great place with a trio of titles including FIFA 15, Diablo III and Wasteland 2. But the biggest factor was the fact that the Umbra Witch was arriving tomorrow and I didn’t know when I was going to get around to Sunset Overdrive.
Re: ASUSWRT-Merlin Custom Firmware
I spent just over a week with Merlin’s firmware and it’s been rock stable thus far. Also, if my Macbook Air’s readings are correct, I’m getting a slight bump in wireless strength. I was expecting stability but not an improvement with wireless range.
More time with this firmware is needed obviously but first impressions are positive.
Re: iPad Air 2’s Tri-core CPU & 2GB RAM
It looks like the iPad Air 2’s performance is better than I’d hoped. That’s nice but the real star of the show is the 2GB of RAM.
Unfortunately the battery is smaller than the first iPad Air and thus full tilt performance will likely drain the battery quicker. C’mon Apple, did you really need to shave off that 1.4 mm? Couldn’t you use that space for a wee bit more battery?
