When YouTube TV fails, an old-school antenna steps up

YouTube TV failed hard during the World Cup semifinal, but old-school antennas rocked it just fine.

In case you missed it, YouTube TV went down hard today. Right when England was trying to #BringItHome. England’s defense pretty much disappeared in the second half, but so, too, did YouTube TV’s stream of the game. (If you somehow actually missed the game, England lost in OT. Sorry, lads.)

But this is a learning experience for us  [Read More…]

HD HomeRun modernizes the old-school over-the-air TV game

HDHomerun is the perfect over-the-air addition to an already excellent Android TV experience.

The thing about being a cord-cutter is that you’re always trying to plug holes. It doesn’t matter what streaming video service you ultimately go with — there’s almost always something missing. For many of us, that hole comes down to local channels. And while services like YouTube TV are trying to fill that hole, there’s still something to be said for a good, old-fashioned broadcast antenna.

[Deal] Channel your old-school gamer with the NES30 Pro Bluetooth Game Controller

Old-school (and new-school) Q*bert is on the Nexus Player!

OK, technically it’s “Q*bert: Rebooted.” But the 1980s kid in me doesn’t care. This version for the Nexus Player has got the original game alongside some newfangled rebooted version that’s OK, but just not the same.

So grab a fistful of quarters (eight of them, actually, to buy this game) and get a slice of pizza and settle down with this one for a few minutes of arcade nostalgia. (Kids, ask your parents. We used to  [Read More…]

Destinia – Equipment, Exploring, and Excavating dungeons keep old-school RPG fans happy [Game Review]

I, like many others, remember where I was and how I felt when I first play Final Fantasy. Maybe this is the reason a lot of us are die-hard RPG fans, and why we long for the simplistic 8-bit days. Thankfully, developers love them too, and we’re blessed by Gamevil’s love for every game-type, especially RPGs, especially Destinia.
