    Fun Times with Fallout 4
    The holidays are a great time to get together with family, have dinner, exchange gifts and generally have fun.  Thing is, that time with your family has an expiration date and at times when it is best to just chill and play some games.  Darren recently picked up Fallout 4 for the PlayStation4 and talks about his experiences picking characters and exploring the vast wasteland.  Some of the interesting things to listen for are how the VATs system works in conjunction with your skill tree and how similar the game is to Skyrim. 

    So similar in fact it is like Bethesda they took the Skyrim engine, changed the textures, added some stuff and slapped a sticker on it. 

    Oh wait..

    Either way you can burn hundreds on hundreds of hours playing either game and never reach the end.  Of course games won’t save you from the holidays but they can help make them go by a little faster.

    Sapphire Nitro Radeon R9 Fury Hardware Overview
    In this segment Dennis and Darren get a first look at the Sapphire Nitro Radeon R9 Fury graphics card and give their impressions of that the card has going for it.  Those of you who have seen the review already will know that some of the information is incorrect (first look afterall).  For instance Dennis says there are 3 HDMI and one DisplayPort which is reverse, 3 DisplayPort and one HDMI.  Also, as nice as it would be, the card doesn’t come with 10 power phases.  Instead the Sapphire Nitro R9 Fury only comes with 7 power phases which is just one over the reference design.

    Be sure to check out the review and see if you can discover anymore.
