I’ve been playing the PS4 since a couple days before its official US release, running it through its paces, and comparing some of the cross-gen games like Assassin’s Creed IV and Madden 25 side by side. My verdict: Sony knocked it out of the park. The PS4 is gorgeous piece of hardware and the user interface is peerless—neither the Xbox One or the Wii U can touch it. Of course, the launch library is what really sells a system, and the PS4’s, while not bad, is still thin. My thoughts on the system itself, whether you should get one now, and what you should play if you do, are in this PS4 review link. Xbox One review coming next week.
They say if you really love what you do, you don’t work a day in your life. That certainly holds true for me. As General Manager of Chef Robert Irvine’s new digital magazine, I have the creative freedom to make the kind of magazine that I’ve always wanted to read. Previously, as Deputy Editor of Muscle & Fitness Magazine, I had the opportunity to go places, meet people, and write the kind of stories I only used to dream about. I have this website so I can share some of my favorite stories that I’ve written throughout my career, which spans Robert Irvine’s new magazine, Muscle & Fitness, Men’s Fitness, Men’s Health, the Bennington Banner daily newspaper in Vermont, and the now-defunct (but once exceptional) Blitz magazine. I’m also a freelance gaming journalist, and I post those stories here as well.
I also want to share a look behind the scenes, and while I do most of this through social media—you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram: @mctuthill—this site allows me the forum to write about the experience of some of these assignments, and share some behind-the-scenes videos.
There are a lot of other places you could be out on the interwebs. Thanks for taking some time to stop by.
