Oh, 2016. You had some memorable games this year. This episode I talk about my best of 2016 gaming list. I have my list and I did check it twice. This was the best game to come out of 2016. It was a good year for strategy and first-person shooters. I will miss 2016 because we got some great titles and the rise of VR. 2017 should tell us if VR is here to stay or a bust. Here's to more exciting games in 2017. I think 2017 is the year of the RPG.
Hitman lets you get your frustration out of food critics!
It's funny how people got mad at Star Citizen for changing engines, when, they really didn't.
I hope this modder does finish his X-Wing project.
Well, look at that, 2016 is almost done. Isn't it glorious? Yes! This episode is going to be looking ahead to the tech future! Plus, some tech news. I will look back at what happened in 2016 and what I want to see in 2017. There are just some things that need to die... Flash! Please finally go away! Plus, these dubious bullying rules and "fake news." I'm looking at you Facebook and Twitter. I want these social networks to stop policing and get rid of tailoring feeds. Tailored feeds are what got us into this hyper drama culture we face. I always think fake news is subjective to the person. We want to believe in what most people deem true. Now, that doesn't mean I don't think there aren't some universal truths. I'm tired of one side calling the other side's reporting fake. That's not a debate and we need to be open to the opposing opinion. However, I do concede there are some sites that do misleading headlines and poor research skills, but, that is a minority. Let's hope some of this gets resolved in 2017!
This SNES mechanical keyboard is bringing back all the fond memories!
I think 2017 is AMD's year.
I really want us all to stop finding drama everywhere in 2017.
We end a techie Christmas Digital Coffee style! That means there's a new episode on Christmas! That's right, my gift to all my listeners is a new episode on Christmas! Enjoy this latest episode of me looking back on the year. I will share what tech and games I liked the most this year. I will go through the highs and lows of the tech, marketing, and gaming industry. It's been an interesting year. Full of great moments and some wild blunders. We've seen crazy and wondrous. Let's hope 2017 is as great and blunderous as 2016. Here's to another great year!
Yahoo email hack was the biggest plunder of 2016
No Man's Sky was the biggest hype game of 2016
I'm hoping 2017 brings an end to yearly releases
Christmas is almost here! If you're scrambling for a Christmas list full of games, this is for you! It's hard to know which games are good and which ones to avoid. This goes for people not in the know with the gaming industry. Not every game is alike, and some, are downright awful. I here to help! The games I choose are a good mix or different genres. They are top AAA games and some independent games. 2016 was a great year. Here's to an interesting 2017!
Scroll down to hear about my list.
I have never like timed exclusives. They split the community up.
I wish companies would use inclusive right.
For Honor seemed interesting, but, I have no interest
AMD finally unveiled their newest CPUs. AMD seems to be on the rise and their stocks have been doing very well. The RYZEN processors have a chance to take on Intel. We won't know how good or bad these chips are until 2017. It looks like AMD is getting back to their competitive form next year. It started this year with their RX 400 series graphics cards. 2017 is shaping out to be a great year in CPUs.

The government should really get out of the green energy industry.
It's good to see AMD back in competitive form.
Evernote this is a PR nightmare you did not have to be a part in.
Periscope merging with Twitter was only a matter of time.
Yahoo, you are telling people not to do business with you.
Happy Holidays everyone! It's a great time of year. However, timed exclusives are the worst! They the scrooge of the gaming industry. I think it's dumb and publishers need to stop doing them. Just launch everything at the same time. I do not like this update is only going to be on platform A for X number of days. It does seem publishers are saying to not buy it on the platform you prefer. I say, "no more!" Anyways, I do like the festive updates that are coming to Hitman, Overwatch and others. Keep it coming!

Hitman is getting festive with the killings
I hate time exclusive. You're telling your customer to not buy your game.
Oh, look! Division got a patch.
Worlds collide! AMD And Intel are having a bundle deal.
The rumors were swirling for weeks about Pebble being acquired. Well, their tech was acquired. That means there no more Pebbles. Fitbit bought the tech and engineers but did not care about anything else. This means Pebble is refunding all the Pebble Time 2 and Pebble Core. It's sad to see a small company with a pretty good product go under. It's even worse to see another company not care brand or old products. Fitbit is going to make some enemies. Time will tell if this was a good deal for Fitbit.

Fitbit, it would be better for you to keep Pebble watches going.
I guess I'm old school for wanting a headphone jack.
The Note 7 had a design problem from the report.
The web is an everything changing environment. We are in 2.0 and now web 3.0 is upon us. It seems to be more about voice search and AMP. This could change, but, we are in an interesting. Yes, everything changes quickly; sometimes more so than we want. I go through why you need to know this and at least look into it. Also, Pinterest launched a new feature called showcase. This allows brands to showcase boards that may not be performing well and products your selling on Pinterest. I like this new feature. I think this could help brands show off their best content. This could bring more engagement to brands if they do it right. If you have not seen it yet, then you don't have a business page. You should probably get on that.
Anyways, on with the show!
Web 3.0, or SEO 3.0 is going to be Voice and AMP.
Pinterest showcase is something every brand should use.
As we know from Facebook, metrics are a work in progress
The Game Awards was on Thursday. I did not see it because I was busy. I do think most people do not watch this because of many reasons. They seem to be like all the other awards shows out there. I rarely watch any of them. Why? I really don't care about the awards. It's nice when a game you like get recognition, but, gamer's play games. We care about reviews. That's really about it. Award shows are for the industry. They may have been for the gamers at one time, but, gaming is mainstream now. Oh well, game on!

The new Overwatch map has hazards. This is going to be interesting.
I don't know if the elusive target should be a woman.
Rocket League is finally going to the final frontier.
It was EA's fault for Titanfall 2 sales.
This is getting tiring. Reddit is becoming the place to never have a thought or a wrong thought. The CEO of Reddit did something wrong. He should be punished for his dubious actions. If he really wants to heal Reddit and the country; maybe you should not silence a group. The problem with these people is they do not understand hate speech. They do not understand free speech and they were riding on the goodwill of their users for so long, they forgot about the trust that was built for the past decade. People should be suspicious of these companies. They do not care about you or your speech.
Find out why below.
Talking about sex, even with that emoji is better than not.
These social media companies built themselves off of free speech and forgot what is that meant.
I don't think breaking up Samsung is a good idea.
Dusk is a way for people to talk about ideas without consequence.
