How to Safely Transport Video Game Consoles

A lot of gamers worry about how to ensure it will arrive undamaged during a plane ride if the luggage is checked, and they are just as worried about damage if it is in the trunk of a car. If you are one of those game enthusiasts, it really is not a big deal, and there are additional steps to ensure your console stays snug, padded, sealed airtight and waterproof, and all of the methods involve something called a ‘rack case’. A rack case is a particular type of travel and storage case that can clip into mount racks or luggage railings so they don’t slide around and potentially damage precious electronics such as your brand-new Switch or vintage Genesis. Here are a few ideas on how to pack your console of choice:

 

Traveling on an Airplane

If you are traveling on an airplane, you have the choice of checking bags or bringing a reasonably sized bag on board as a carry on. The smart choice is to pack the most delicate and valuable item, which is probably the console, and opt for it to be the carry on. Place the console in the 4U size rack case. It should unless you have added crazy mods to the console because the case is only 7 inches in height and 9.5 inches in width. Finally, place rack case inside a normal looking carry-on bag barely large enough to hold it, and place items to pad and secure the rack case to make immovable. If you have to check it, you would still follow the directions above.

 

Traveling on the Road

Securing a console safely on the road is not going to be too much different than traveling on a plane. You want to pack it the same way using a rack case inside a slightly larger, padded bag. Depending on the amount of luggage and vehicle, securing the console bag is the most important thing. The bag needs to stay stationary. You can rope it down or use other bags to keep it in one spot.

Common sense and the durable, protective hard case are the keys to keeping whichever console you are traveling with undamaged. The combination of the case and making sure the luggage it is in barely contains it is key. It will allow you to nestle the bag to prevent jostling or any major impact on the console to ensure you can have fun gaming wherever your destination might be.

The Love of God’s Power

God is faithful. We’ve all heard these words. We’ve read them, said them, and sung them. And we’ve felt themGod’s faithfulness is a palatable experience of his love. It’s his love tasted and seen in our history. It’s the mechanics of his love wired to fulfill his promises for our good. In fact, God’s faithfulness and his steadfast love are so closely intertwined that in Psalm 33 they’re basically the same.

5 Things “Law and Order” Got Wrong About Criminal Justice

Television shows like Law and Order are a formula that has successfully entertained Americans for decades. Everyone loves a good crime story, and everyone wants to see the bad guy get what is coming to him or her in the end. While this makes for good television, it’s not necessarily the way it always works out in real life. Here are five examples of things that shows like “Law and Order” get wrong about law enforcement and the criminal justice system.

Celebrate A Simpler Life With Solitude

Solitude, a short game about abandoning your old life and becoming a shepherdess, is all about leaving the things that don’t make you happy behind. This is accomplished by walking through colorful, slightly surreal dioramas and clicking on things, which in itself is nice and calming. There’s also understated music, bleeping and blooping away most pleasurably in the background, and sheep are frolicking about as you slowly turn into a shepherdess.

All of this is delightfully strange and carries a nice message. You see, on your way to become more at peace with yourself, you have to help other people. These then turn into sheep and follow you, which… is a bit weird, actually. But then, so is the rest of Solitude.

The shepherding is not only a wonky metaphor or Jana Reinhardt’s personal escapism fantasy. It works on so many levels, from a simple “back to nature” thing to more complex ideas about society and even Christianity, if you want. Whatever you might read into the game, Solitude is a delight and totally worth the 15 minutes or so you’ll spend on it.
