Netflix Adds Device-Specific SD Card Functionality

Netflix Adds Device-Specific SD Card Functionality

Feb 9, 2017

Netflix added a great feature last year: the ability to download some content for offline viewing. One ding? Well, the downloaded content had to reside on the host device’s onboard storage.

In other words, if you have a device with an external SD card, you couldn’t use that storage; you had to keep that content on precious stock storage.

Now, Netflix has added the ability to use said SD card storage.

YAY!!!

There is one snag though: said new feature is only available on select devices.

The app remains free on Google Play; it requires a subscription.

Corpse Party BLOOD DRIVE EN Review

Corpse Party BLOOD DRIVE EN Review

Feb 6, 2017

We love our exploration games, and Corpse Party BLOOD DRIVE (from 5pb) is one we’ve been keeping an eye on.

It’s been two months since the “Book of Shadows” incident — for those keeping tabs on the storyline, this refers to the events Corpse Party Book of Shadows. Now, the player takes on the persona of our heroine, who has to return to a world with a familiar faces completely erased erased.

The visuals are an interesting blend: on the one hand, we get the anime characterizations and cutscenes that make it easy to delve into the game; on the other hand, the panicked splotches of blood (along with screamy outbursts) do make for an eerie counterbalance. Visually, it comes across as a horror experience that isn’t overly horrific at first.

The game controls translate well; it’s easy to figure out illumination and how to run. The game fits in pointers through the lengthy intro, so that when the action really starts, it’s easy to feel comfortable with the game mechanics.

corpse3

And lengthy the intro is. Wow. I caught myself wishing I could fast forward through the bulk of it. It does well to frame the action, but there is a lot of dead space.

The main action boils down to a lot of point and click action. The narrative is compelling, with plenty of apprehensive turns. The game does demand a bit of patience, and with this type pf game, that is perfectly okay.

It’s a great concept, but the connecting dialogue feels convoluted in parts; it is tough to pay attention to the side content while seemingly looking to move on in the game. The black scenes are great, but again, I feel a bit of moderation is what would make them resonate.

When it finally gets going, it does manage to keep one’s digits going, but the in-between grate on the nerves more than a bit. In the end, that’s what matters.
