Xbox One Live Issues Yesterday Affecting Xbox 360 Today!

Yesterday while playing Destiny 2 on Xbox One, I came back after a much needed break, and not only was I disconnected from the Destiny 2 world, but my Xbox One altogether. The Xbox One completely went offline – which I then could not sign back in. Then I finally could sign back into Xbox One and it was saying for the store and pretty much everything on the right of the dash that it was “unavailable.”

I was, however, able to access Destiny 2, only to be told they were having server issues. Hmm.

Very disconcerting. I did check the Xbox One and Destiny 2 server status and both had “issues” and were in the red.

It appears this problem is on Microsoft’s end...

The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia – Series 1-3

When you love a series, you tend to follow all of the cool new games, books, guides and products that are available for it. However, sometimes I find that “books” and guides tend to be less popular than say, games or t-shirts. Because of that I wanted to bring to light one item you might not know about – The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia.

There are, in all, 2 books as of right now. Each one has its own history on various parts of the story behind The Leged Of Zelda. Here are the first three The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia books.

The Best Halloween Themed Movies

Well, its almost that time – Halloween! Personally, as a kid I always loved Halloween. My parents would always let me dress up as something cool, I always went trick or treating, and my mom always made the house look super festive. These days as an Adult I am jealous of the kids that get to get dressed up for this special occasion. Instead, I just wear a mask or something lame and hand out candy to kids.

As I got older and started to go out less for trick and treating, and stayed in more, we started a new tradition – watching scary movies.  Even when I was a kid, you can bet your pumpkin we watched all the Halloween themed movies for kids!

Well, if you’re looking for some of the best Halloween themed movies just in the nick of time for Halloween, here is the list for the BEST Halloween th...

What Is The Best Gaming Router?

It seems that everyone these days has their lists in terms of which router is the best gaming router. EliteShot for instance, uses and thinks the Netduma R1 is the best. Personally, I think that while this router might be a good one to use, its not the only one to use. In fact, I think there are much better options, especially in terms of money. I am more than willing to spend a little more IF I know that its going to last me for a few years. Below, we will be talking about the best gaming routers; 1 that I use, and a few off shoots if you want to try something else out.

2 New PC Gaming Mouses By Logitech G

For as long as I can remember Logitech has always been involved in PC “accessories” and PC gaming products. I mean I remember way back in the day (AOL dial up era) getting a Web Cam for my PC and the best that was out there was Logitech by far and wide. Speed up XX years and Logitech is still at the forefront of technology. I think I like and respect Logitech so much as a company is the same reason other people do; Most of their products are low to medium ranged in terms of prices. Secondly, they always are made well and last forever. Thirdly, Logitech is always technologically advanced and offers superior tech. Lastly, I don’t care who you are, design and looks matter and Logitech products are always appealing to the eye.
