“That was too close. You were almost a Jill sandwich!”
IN THE NEWS
Three words: Duct tape. Ceiling. Gaming. Most of you probably know what I’m talking about, but for those who don’t, this is a very famous gaming picture that has floated around the Internet for some 15 years:
Well, Kotaku’s Eric Van Allen did some sleuthing to track down the real gamers behind the photo — and he actually found them! “The picture in question originates from Mason, Michigan, where a close group of friends who liked to build personal computers and organize LAN parties grew up,” Van Allen writes. “‘I don’t want to say it’s a closely guarded secret,’ said Brian Schaeffer, one of the LAN goers. ‘But half the fun of seeing that picture pop up on the internet is all the stories where people say, ‘Oh yeah I know the people there.’ No you don’t! It was a small town, a random group of friends, and we literally just got goofy one day.'”
I’d highly recommend taking the time to read through the full interview, as it includes a lot more pictures and a wonderful story of just how this photo came to be.
Clearly, someone heard me complaining. Microsoft has finally released some news related to the Halo franchise and Xbox One X. Halo 5: Guardians is getting a 4K upgrade and “four legacy Halo titles are being made backward compatible on the Xbox One and every Xbox 360 map in the Xbox Store will be available for free,” Charlie Hall at Polygon reports.
