The WhatsItTech team was fortunate enough to go to PAX East 2018 this year. During our trip, I was able to lock down a few interviews with some brilliant people. One of them was Darren Korb, composer of the Supergiant Games Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre. Below you will find the written transcription of our interview.

If anyone hasn’t done so already, check out the review of the ‘ debut album In The Arms of the Sun by Vox Vocis.

This will be a breakdown of the entire album track by track . Continue reading Vox Vocis – Star Meissa Album Review
Facebook at the beginning of last year was closing on 2 billion users. There’s around 7 and a half billion people. That means almost 30% of the entire world has a Facebook account. Yet Facebook is expected to lose 2 million users that are under the age of 24 this year according to eMarketer. Why is that the case? Isn’t Facebook the platform for the young kids and not their old parents? It seems that is becoming further and further from the truth. Continue reading Facebook Sucks – It Used To Be About You

Speed, reliability, features. Those are the three main factors I look for in a browser. A couple months ago, I had been curious to see what other browsers were out there. I was primarily a Chrome user for 4 years, with a random blip of Firefox in my history. After going through the gauntlet of browsers, Vivaldi stuck out as a great Chrome alternative, so much so that it is my main browser. Let’s take a look at what makes this feature heavy browser so special. Continue reading Vivaldi – The Best Fork Of Chromium
As with many guitar players, I was inspired by the album cover from Steve Vai’s pivotal album Passion and Warfare. The swirled guitar with colors everywhere was captivating to me as a teen. What also held my attention was some of the low end Vai was getting out of his guitar, especially the riff in “The Audience Is Listening”. This build is a result of that inspiration. Continue reading My 7 String Build!
Tunechi F Baby, and the F is for finally back. Lil Wayne has been a seminal MC to the hip hop game. From really pushing the idea of the mixtape forward in the mid to late 2000’s to his birthing a generation of new wave rappers, Wayne is no slouch. Continue reading Lil Wayne – Is it Weezy Season?

As somebody who has switched over to Android wanting to get the most out of my phone, I was rather disappointed after having figured out that Verizon wanted absolutely none of that on Google’s shiny new flagship phone, the Pixel 2. Thanks to an oversight by the very same phone carrier that disabled this option, you can unlock the bootloader on your phone right now. Continue reading How to Unlock your Verizon Pixel 2’s Bootloader (Yes, really!)

Psyonix’s Rocket League has broken a lot of boundaries in the gaming world. They’ve broken into the E-Sports world with their infectiously competitive game of ‘soccer cars’, and they’ve achieved cross-network play between their various platforms. The premise of Rocket League is simple, you drive a car that is rocket powered and hit the ball into the goal. The game is a cross between soccer and demolition derby, allowing you to fly through the air with boosts in order to score points in the five minute match. But how does this game do on the Nintendo Switch? Continue reading Rocket League for the Switch – Battle Cars On The Go!
Few albums have blown me away first listen the same way this album has. Aside from being the album that put Steve Vai on the map as a fantastic guitar player, it pushed the musical boundaries of instrumental guitar music. There weren’t many seven string players during this time, and with some of his tunes using a 7, Passion and Warfare was on it’s way to be a classic.
