ThruNite TN12 has retired all my other lights.

I know, I know, I know. This light and incredible upcoming company has already been talked about. At first Surefire, Nitecore, and Fenix were the only top brands most talked about. Sure you had the Olights, Eagletac, and Klarus but they didn’t as many followers as the top three brands. So, for a brand called ThruNite to step up and interrupt the order of Torches in the market is something to be recognized.

And for this brand to step up into my life and become the default EDC carry is mind blowing. Outside from my Leatherman, it has become irreplaceable in such a short time it scares me. I was so sure that Nitecore was the best for me, that it really threw me a curveball when the tail switch failed and this light moved right into its place and outperformed the Nitecore in almost every category. 1100 lumens( 220 meters of throw) with a. 4 firefly mode on a absolutely beautiful beam formation already put it into a category by itself. Then once you add the amazing option to have Neutral White tint instead of the standard cool white tint, you absolutely create a different breed of that stands out amoungst the sheep. Lastly, the most simplistic thing the ThruNite did was work. Every time I pushed the buttons for power of mode it worked 100% of time no matter how I pushed them or how fast or slow I pushed them. It doesn’t have a lot of trickery or complexity in its operation and therefore reduces the margin of errors where malfunctions takes place. This, unfortunately exist in far too many flashlights out there in the world. Too many modes, too many functions, too many interfaces. So thankfully, ThruNite decided to create things like this and keeps this very reliable and powerful. So thank you ThruNite.

Thrunite TN12 vs the Pack

Xbox E3…what they really said.

First…

Halo trailer…Let the world celebrate right? PAUSE.. The trailer was simply about the “Engine”. This was not the game folks! And being that this was just the engine, you have showed me nothing that I didn’t already know….”Another Halo is going to come out some time in the future” . I stress Some Time in the future. This could be 3 years from now. Why? Because there was absolutely not GAMEPLAY. This was a empty attempt to spark hype. If they had been smarter they would have saved this trailer for the end of the conference instead of that horrible game Cyberpunk. More on that later.

Next up is the stupidest praise of all. The third party games praise. Do you fanboys know what “World Premiere” means? Basically, it means that this is not exclusive game!!! It means this same trailer will be played for the Playstation format as well. This doesn’t show off Microsofts hard work at making games and yet the crowd acted like this was something strictly for Microsoft. It’s not. So now that we have crossed at that possible outcome, what we have left is nothing more than we have right now.. A system that talks more about third party games than actually having something worth it in exclusives.

So what does your most powerful console in the world push in exclusives then?? Battletoads and “Gears Pop”!!!!!!!! ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!!!!!!!! And then worst yet… You drop the Mic on Cyberpunk 2077???? A third party game?? I would have played Gears or even put Halo’s “Engine demo”at the end, but never a third party game. That’s the big moment you wasted peoples time in at the end of the conference for??? This is got to be some kind of joke right?? All this raw power and every single game either looks just like the others with this cartoon based graphic set they keep producing or its some stupid kiddy game because they are focused on causal fans instead of the core fans. The only thing Tha supports core fans are third party developers because Microsoft has no clue on how to do it themselves. Microsoft is a flat out joke and it’s a pure laughable experience when you see IGN and any other person out there acting like Microsoft delivered on something. They didn’t. They only thing they gave me was the truth about the waste of money people put into their xbox one x which is already about to be replaced in least than a year on the market. They are already talking about the next system on the same day they have discounted the price. So combine that with the fact that none of the studios they bought have games ready means that you won’t see anything worth time or consideration until the next system comes out and might not even see Halo until then. So, thanks Microsoft.. You really confirmed that there is absolutely no reason to own an Xbox now. What a waste!!!

E3 2018 Christmas approaches!

The best time of the year is upon us gamers! E3 is here. Every year this event hits, gamers get a little more information on their chosen format. I Absolutely adore gaming more now that ever before. Wait, I should say I absolutely adore “Playstation gaming”. Let’s face it, Microsoft is complete garbage and have destroyed their core fans with their baby games and stupid choices. I believe their E3 is up today and yet it’s the first E3 from Microsoft that I am not interested in seeing. I just frankly don’t want to hear about all the so called new studios their hired for games that aren’t going to be ready for 3 years. And then when they are, it going to more of the same games like Ori, sea of thieves, and boring Crackdown. These types of games give no excitment to me when you compare games like Spiderman, Days gone, Detroit, Last of us, and many more. Playstation knows how to create epic AAA games that matter.

So while Microsoft waste money on studios that already make exclusives for their format, Sony already owns and creates miracles. Even now Detroit.. become human, is one of the very best games I have ever played. And I only have it because someone with Playstation had the vision to sign it for exclusives. In fact, I would purchased a Playstation just for this game if I already didn’t own one. This is how big this game is to me. Every single time I look up l, I’m amazed about something that went on in my story but not my friends. Great single player experience is so needed and is something Microsoft has forgotten.

When the smoke clears, great single player games will always wow the core gamer the most. It is a vital part of gaming, just like multi player games. Playstation thankfully has both on lock down now. Their network is even reliable now, which is bad news for Microsoft. I can’t tell you the last time I was disappointed about outages. It’s been a while and this is great work on Sony behalf(its about time).

Next years games are going to be great for playstation yet again but even this year isn’t over. Great games like Spiderman is still coming. This is yet another game that I would have purchased a playstation for just to play. Games like this are what defines a gaming company. For Microsoft, games like Cuphead are theirs. So really, there isn’t much left to say about it. If you want baby games, I’m sure Microsoft has you covered. If you want games like Spiderman, Detroit, Death Strading, Ghost of tsushima, MLB and others Playstation is the Only Place to find all of it under one roof…Playstation!

P10gt surprising me and fails.

Digitalcrack’s new EDC.

Microsoft and Xbox sink even lower….fires support team of 12 after training volunteers that took their place.

Look, every company does lay offs. This is not the point here. But normally lay offs are designed to save true money not a couple of thousand a year but in something that actually makes since to save. For a multi billion profit company, this amount they saved served no purpose but to be dirty. It’s not going to help them pay for anything or make up for any purchase they may have acquired. But it does put sadness in my heart for those 12 people that were wrongfully cut after training their replacements. Way to go scumbag company of the year. You just find new and exciting ways to really inspire trust in your “supporters”.. pun intended.

Tennis world tour is absolute garbage that is being assumed to be good.

Guys I am here to try and keep you out of danger. I am trying to keep you from making the same mistake that I just made buying this game. This game was pushed by some serious backers in the industry. So much that you can’t even find reviews yet on this title. It’s not like this game is some deep piece of programing and Gameplay that requires weeks of season play to come up with a conclusion. They have purposefully held back off of the reviews in hopes of selling the product to us. And like with me, its working. Just because this game was surrounded by the same people that brought us Top Spin doesn’t make this game good. But this is why people are buying the game. Now, I can’t tell you about the other versions out there but as far as the Playstation goes, there is no cheers or crowd reactions. You can just win the biggest game of your life and get crikects. And oh may goodness the commentary is absolutely horrible especially when you get those courts that have one person in the crowd saying the same thing over, and over, and over, and over again(“come on”, “come on”…..). Oh and then there is the robotic players gronts that make you want to stab yourself in the ear to avoid hearing them… Over, and over, and over, and over.

Then you add the graphics that sometimes ranks on the level of the wii U to the mix and you start to see some real white wet bird crap heating up on your 4k screen. I mean make no mistake about it, this is the worse tennis game I have ever played. It’s sluggish, stiff, and ugly. The only thing decent about this games looks is the menu system.

AO TENNIS is far and away the best tennis game for the consoles releases for this generation. It might not be perfect but having the ability to download from a community players like Pete Sampras and or courts from around the world is a delight that is unmatched especially when you add realistic movement, better fps, better player models and an actual crowd that reacts in the PS4 version, you have something truly to appreciate. I’m even starting to believe that Tennis world tour has paid off people to over hype their product and delay their bad reviews. It really shocks me how many people just flat out assume that AO tennis is this bad game and Tennis World is the game they have been waiting on. Oh and did I mention that AO tennis is even cheaper????

Confirmation is recieved. Nitecore P10GT vs Fenix Pd35..

Well, I don’t think it comes as a shock but the Nitecore P10GT stays. The Fenix brand, to be clear, is nothing short of great quality. They have a following for a reason. It’s not just a name but a way of doing things. But… at the same time, Nitecore has also showed similar results and push of their brand and lights. So this choice isn’t a knock on any brand of lights. If you like Fenix, then I clearly see why. And if you like Nitecore, I can see why. This conclusion is more about the model than the brand. The PT10gt, for the light world, is what the Playstation 4 is for gaming in my eyes. It is the one creation that had many interations prior. Some of those concepts weren’t good enough while others were just about right. But every so often, we get a creation that is made so well and perfect for what it was designed for that, that you truly walk away forcing yourself to find anything that could possibly bring it down to earth.

You can say whatever it is about the brand you like vs another brand but I frankly wouldn’t care if the brand on this was GE. I simply don’t care about brands more than function and performance. This is why I gave lights like the Wowtac so much praise and respect. What can you do better than others and how consistent are you at doing it? Those are the real questions. So having both the PD35 Tac edition and the P10GT was a blessing because it gave me a chance to examine both.

What I found out( or should I say, what I was reminded of because the regular p10 was already something that I had in the past and missed extremely) was that this Nitecore model is irreplaceable for my use. FOR ME, what I found out was that I couldn’t replace the p10 with any other light or brand but this p10 or P10GT. No other light from any brand, including Nitecore themselves, would work because it wasn’t a one handed operation light. This is what makes this type of light model the absolute best. Being able to control your light with one hand completely is beyond optional, it is not negotiable. This is why 80% or more lights out there will never work much less equal to the P10GT. The majority of them, after their QA failure like Klarus, or whatever else holds them down, just weren’t made for one handed operation. Manufacturers builds that relied on a 2nd hand for operation or a complex configuration when activating the functions completely remove themselves from even being considered when measured against this model.

Then once you add their build quality that they put on this light, along with its functions and simplicity, you have, what I believe to be, the world’s first perfect light. The weight, the buttons responsiveness, and sure power and balance of light clearly shows art. That’s right, I said it, this light is a work of art! I have never once found another light from any brand that could beat this product overall. Maybe isolated areas like lumens and or something else but not the whole balanced package. Get me at least 800-1000 lumens((20,500cd’s), with a 286 meter throw along with this shape of unit, along with one hand operations with dedicated strobe and mode buttons that activate in Milliseconds in any mode, and a body strength that is built for strikes on attckers..all backed by a 5 year no questions warranty with options to continue the warranty after 5 years. Once all this laid on the table then we can start to make comparisons. But as you know the one hand operation mixed with a dedicate strobe button that operates in the low milliseconds is just not something created by the vast majority of flashlight manufacturers. So the Fenix PD35 just couldn’t remain a option and is packed up to be return. So unless something happens to my P10GT this just might be the last flashlight for years to come.
