So I’ve been playing with the Australian Netflix for a week now.
And it’s good.
I’ve checked out a few movies, watched the Netflix exclusive Bloodlines and a few episodes of The Returned- another Netflix show. Flicking through all the content available is a bit overwhelming, but I’m starting to spend less and less time search for stuff and more time just watching.
So you’ve had your Xbox One and/or PlayStation 4 for just over a year now. Whilst their respective game catalogues are not huge by any stretch of the imagination. There’s still enough out there to fill up the rather paltry 500GB hard drives that both Sony and Microsoft decided to ship in their respective consoles.

Last year’s Melbourne show was the first PAX to be held out of the US. Continue reading Looking back at PAX Australia 2014→
Time to face facts. Your Xbox 360 is almost obsolete. When the last of Microsoft’s mighty consoles rolls of the production line it will have become nothing but a toy for young kids.
