    It seems like everyone but Microsoft is really stepping up their “executives making silly YouTube videos” game.

    Switch Fringe is a two-week music and art festival in the U.K. town of Ipswich. The people who organized this festival commissioned a map.

    Microsoft was stingy with invitations for its E3 press event this year, so I had to make do watching the live stream on subpar hotel Wi-Fi. Thanks to the resulting choppiness, I missed most of the trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which opened the event. The only part I caught was […]
