It’s that time of year again. The time when Cyberlink releases the latest version of its venerable and powerful software video/multimedia player, PowerDVD ($100 MSRP, available as a download or physical disc at Amazon). The big news this time around is media-casting support, so you can stream audio and video to Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast devices on your network. On the audio side of the coin, the news is support for high-resolution DSD (Direct Stream Digital) audio files.
This week I played Day of the Tentacle legally. Those of you who played it back in 1993 understand why this is such a big deal. And the rest of you? If you’re wondering “Why would he start off a review with such a banal statement?” then blame LucasArts.
