    Microsoft is Also Looking into Creating Metaverse Apps for Xbox

    Metaverse (noun): A VR space in which users can interact with a computer-generated environment and other users.

    Apparently Mark Zuckerberg isn't the only one looking to get into this whole "metaverse" thing. Microsoft just announced a metaverse for meetings via Microsoft Teams. The company doesn't plan to stop there, however, as they're also looking to expand into gaming-focused metaverses with Xbox.

    In speaking with Bloomberg TV, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator Install Size Cut in Half in New Update

    That's some impressive optimization there.

    Microsoft flight Simulator is a gigantic game. After all, it's a flight simulator that lets you fly literally anywhere on planet Earth. The minimum storage requirement for the game is a whopping 150GB but the installed size is often much higher than that, upwards of 170+GB in size. This probably annoys a lot of people regardless of whether of not they have monthly download caps from their ISP.

    Fortunately, the latest update to...

    Steam's Best Selling Games of 2020

    Checking out the year's top 100 games on Steam.

    2020 has sucked all kinds of ass. You know it, I know it, people who haven't even been born yet will eventually know it. If there's one thing that made the year a little more bearable it's the fact that we probably gamed a lot more than usual thanks to, you know, everything.

    Some of that is reflected in Valve's end of the year "Best Of" list for Steam. With gaming still being big in 2020, here are just a few of...

    Review: Microsoft Flight Simulator (PC)

    And if you look out to the left, you will see the finest simulation game on the market.

    When it comes to the simulation genre, I am not exactly what you would call an "expert." In fact, in all the years playing games, I have only dabbled in the genre a handful of times. That said, one of my guiltiest of guilty pleasures is American Truck Simulator for the PC. I have played that game casually here and there when I just wanted to chill and relax. I would have a video or some...
