This Week In Gaming – October 17, 2017

Super Mario Odyssey – Nintendo Switch
My Amazon Product of The Day

October 17, 2017 – This weeks most popular story based on user votes is going to be redbox now allowing you to rent switch games.  Keep in mind this is only in a few areas; Portland, Seattle, San Antonio.  For me the biggest piece of news is Crazy Justice announcing cross play between the switch and xbox.  This brings us one step closer to fully open cross play between all consoles and games.

This Week In Cannabis – October 16, 2017

October 16, 2017 – Colorado’s announcement of making over 1 billion in marijuana sales tops this weeks biggest piece of news.  The second biggest piece is Kentucky’s Governor, Matt Bevin, stating he will never legalize cannabis because of opioid overdoses.  On that same note there is a study released this week showing that opioid usage drops when people have access to medical marijuana in Illinois.  Also while the UK bill seems great, it is expected to not pass, so please don’t get your hopes to high on that one.

This Week In Technology – October 14, 2017

October 14, 2017 – The biggest piece of news this week would be the Western Digital breakthrough.  They have found a way to use microwave signals to help with the magnetic data storage.  Unlike other breakthroughs that never see the light of day, they already plan to start releasing new drives in 2019, and expect us to have high speed 40 terabyte drives in the near future.

This Week In Science – October 13, 2017

October 13, 2017 – This weeks most popular scientific news piece was the study on serotonin showing that psychedelics can be a long term solution to some mental illnesses. What makes this great is doctors also believe they have found out why ketamine does this, and believe they can create drugs to help with depression without requiring ketamine.

This Week In Movies – October 12, 2017

Settlers of Catan 5th Edition
My Amazon Product of The Day

October 12, 2017 – The most popular piece of news this week was the first image of Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa in the upcoming Martin Scorcesemovie.  For me it has to be the Settlers of Catan movie being made.  Such a generic idea from such a great board game.  The plan to make it a franchise of movies makes this all the better too.

This Week In Recipes – October 11, 2017

Simple Chef Cast Iron Skillet 3-Piece Set
My Amazon Product of The Day

October 11, 2017 – My personal favorite this week has to be the low carb cinnamon toast crunch. Eating something healthy and tasty is what I always strive for, but rarely accomplish. There was a dispute in the reddit comments on the Pumpkin No Churn Ice Cream. Because of how its made, some people do not consider it actually ice cream, but instead its a frozen dessert, so I added that in the title for you nitpickers out there.

October 10, 2017 – The loot box debate is still going on and now open critic seems to have joined in there.  They are planning a way to distinguish games that have loot boxes in them from other games.  Personally I am fine with loot boxes that only offer cosmetic changes, but others think that is still unfair as it encourages people to waste money getting randomly generated loot when you are only after a specific one.
