Transistor

Transistor is a game that I never would have tried if not for the perks I get from my PS+ subscription and a recommendation from a friend (Yes, Pao, I mean you). On the last few days that it was free on PS+, a buddy of mine told me about Transistor and how awesome it was supposed to be. And just in nick of time, I was able to snag it up absolutely free.

In Transistor, you play as Red, a talented singer whose voice was taken away. You wield a sword called Transistor that seemingly takes the personalities and memories of people who have passed away and turns them into abilities or Functions. You and your city are being attacked by something called The Process. Who unleashed the Process and what it is, that's for you to find out.

At the most basic level, Transistor is just an isometric-view action game. What sets it apart is the way it's presented and the way the game mechanics work. Let's start off with the presentation and move on to gameplay a little later.

Fictional Cars I Wish I Owned

A few weeks ago, I got an idea for a post here at GeekOut.ph thanks to an email I received from Carmudi. I thought to myself "Man, it'd be cool if Carmudi had every conceivable car on their listing." With that rattling in my head, I listed down what cars from fiction would just be awesome to drive down the Skyway while blasting some Katy Perry or some Taylor Swift. Let's go take a look at that list right now!

Batmobile

Let's get the obvious one out of the way from the get-go. The Batmobile is one of the most recognizable fictional car despite it having many, many looks. The specs and features of the Batmobile really depends on the medium and the story it was featured in, but they all have one thing in common - badassery.

I'm actually quite partial to the BTAS batmobile, though. Look at that thing.
