DFL Podcast #5 is up! It breaks down wide receiver rankings. I'll have the rankings in text with context and a more proper podcast page up over the weekend.
Fantasy players: if you found the podcast useful, please do share the link with your fellows!
Today's strip is completely facetious. I'm loving this reveal that the Xbox One can monitor its heat levels, and respond by upping the cooling and reducing power consumption. We live in an age when heat is the enemy, with Xbox 360s and PlayStation 3s defenseless against inevitable meltdown. (Although the 360 "Red Ring of Death" is far more infamous than the PS3 "Yellow Light of Death", the YLOD is no less avoidable under sustained use.)
However, Microsoft didn't clarify what "reduced power consumption" entails. The GPU is typically the culprit responsible for slagged soldering, and without power, graphics cards...can't make graphics. Having to shut down a game is preferable to fatal console brickification, but I'd prefer better heat dissipation to interrupting a gratifying gaming experience. I'd also like a magical canine best friend I could wear as a battle suit.
Software Slump reminisces on retro Disney faves, World of Illusion and Mickey Mania.
