Frontier Pop July 2017 Volume 7 Issue 103 “Switched On”

(Click on the link or on the cover image to partake in our excellence; our issue for July 2017! Taste us! Give us a taste! We know things, and you will, soon, too! DO IT NOW!)

Frontier Pop issue 103 Volume 7 July 2017: Switched On

Editorial: Frontier Pop: Are we really back?
Our ultra-awesome editor and chief, C. A. Passinault, is back, and he assures us that Frontier Pop is not only back and better than ever, but that it will now regularly publish new issues, as well as begin filling in those missing and complete back issues (a mission that will take at least two years).
We are back!

Issue main topic and featured content:

The Nintendo Switch
Is the Nintendo Switch the most powerful portable video game console ever made, or is it the most underpowered current home console? Could it be both? What is it that we hear about it being “incomplete” and “glitchy”. What about those damn crashes, Nintendo?!?! Despite the problems, we love our Switch! A Frontier Pop exclusive!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The best video game ever made, or something that may transcend video games altogether? After over 180 210 hours experiencing this game in roughly 12 18 weeks, it certainly has the record for keeping C. A. Passinault's attention. He still isn't nearly done with it, and, much like real life, he is powered up to be like a God!

No Virtual Console, but Neo Geo games! Yay! YAY! (Really... These games are AWESOME!)
Here is one of the aspects of the “incomplete” when it comes to the Switch. The eShop is not a mess... It is basically missing! Hell, it is even more of a mess than Frontier Pop is on this fine July day in 2017. Things are getting better, though, in both cases! They are giving us Neo Geo games, at least (although, at the time of this writing, in some cluttered proto eShop, what we really want them to give us Last Blade 2), but that lack of a real D-Pad on the left Switch joycon absolutely SUCKS, especially for fighting and platforming games. Don’t make us use a sloppy analog stick or fork out moola for an overpriced pro controller which complicates the portable form factor of the Switch, Bitch!
That lack of a D-Pad is like something that a non gamer, would design, in our opinion. Fix it, Ninty!

New Frontier Pop format
Frontier Pop is a mess (Nolan and his minions are smiling, we bet, but they won't be for long). We admit it. It will take a while to get this site where it needs to be (to the point that we almost threw it away and started over), but it will get there, eventually (We still rule, and are awesome, however!).
In the meantime, we are going to update the design template and get rid of those redundant, pointless, outdated social media buttons (Done as of 08/17/17, and the entire site has been moved to a secure server account, although the past issues are still in the old format)!

Web Sites
Passinault resumes updating web sites. Here we go!

Nolan Canova and Crazed Fanboy / PCR (Pop Culture Review). My opinion.
An underrated site that needs a new lease on life.
Sure, Passinault’s feeling about Crazed Fanboy are mixed, but he does go on record saying that there is a lot of good information on the web site, and that it needs to resume publication.
Well, kind of like Frontier Pop, although we just resumed publication.
It would be a tragedy if Crazed Fanboy never published again.

300 Web Sites by 2019
Passinault unveils a goal to have 300 web sites online by 2019. How will he accomplish this feat of magnificence?
Better yet, how does he propose to keep up with all of those web sites?

Talent Resource Sites and Security
Passinault reveals next-generation web sites and his plan to deter some people from learning from them.

Independent Film War
The independent film war, which started in 2008, and which Passinault, in our opinion, won, continues on. Why? What is at stake?
With Passinault also managing conflicts in modeling and in photography, how is this a good idea?

The Frontier Society is now the Cypher Society?
Why? How? What is going on?
What exactly IS the Frontier, or Cypher, Society, anyway?


Frontier Pop August 2013 Volume 4 Issue 56 “Back On Track”

Frontier Pop issue 56 for August 2013: Back on Track.

9/04/13/0901: Issue 56 for August 2013: “Back on Track”.
This issue, which was written over the entire month of August in order to help get Frontier Pop back on track and regularly publishing again, as well as to start the process of updating past issues and finishing incomplete issues, is the LARGEST single issue of Frontier Pop, EVER, and it should be, as it is the swan song for the old format of the web site. We are talking about over 45 pages upon initial publication, and it will only get larger over time (If you try to sit down and read this, do it at a computer, make yourself comfortable, and pack a lunch and lakes of tea; you're going to be there a while).
Highlights of this landmark, brilliant issue include:
Animal Crossing: New Leaf impressions and suggestions. Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a video game for the Nintendo 3DS, and it is awesome.
An Artificial Life essay, in reference to Animal Crossing.
Video Game Emulation update.
The Frontier Society Reloaded.
News about the official DJ Frontier and DJ Wiz Kid web sites.
Tentative schedule for C. A. Passinault and his projects from 2013 to 2018, including web site, independent film, film festival, independent film industry, photography, and modeling plans.


Frontier Pop February 2013 Volume 3 Issue 50 “The Love Issue”

Frontier Pop Issue 50: The Love Issue

09/04/13/0901: Frontier Pop Issue 50, for February, 2013, "The Love Issue". This issue is a special Valentine’s Day issue of Frontier Pop for 2013. It is about, well, love. It is a little about some ladies by the name of Kristen and Samantha, too, from failed relationships from over a decade ago.
It is also very controversial.
This issue is about heterosexual love, so fanboys need not apply. We know what you are into, and most people are not into that, despite what a vocal few may say! Upon reading this, one of our readers told us that we have a very 90's mindset, which we agree with and are proud of, but we disagree with what they are implying with that term. We do agree, however, with equal rights, although giving anyone special rights is, well, not a good thing. Equality is good.
We do think for ourselves, though, and refuse to think a certain way because the crowd, most of whom have been conditioned since childhood to accept certain things as normal, tell us that we have to think a certain way. Don’t.


Frontier Pop September 2011 Volume 2 Issue 33 “Video Game Emulation”

Frontier Pop issue 33: Video Game Emulation

08/20/13/0909: Frontier Pop Issue 33 for September, 2011, "Video Game Emulation".
This issue of Frontier Pop is all about emulation, specifically video game emulation. We go into the legalities of video game emulation, the emulators, the rom files, and the recommended emulators for classic consoles and the arcade machines.
Emulators, basically, turn your computer into the video game console or arcade machine (coin op) being emulated. By themselves, emulators are perfectly legal. The rom files which are the actual game, however, are protected by copyright, and are not legal to play unless you own the game, in our opinion.
Although the legality of playing emulated games without owning the actual games is in question, it is possible, although illegal, to play perfect classic video games on your computer free of charge (please read the disclaimers in this issue. We do not recommend breaking the law, and you use this information at your own risk). Most of the time, the emulated games are perfect, but sometimes, due to missing support files or corrupted rom files, the games are not perfect. Galaga, for example, although it looks and plays perfectly, is missing some audio files. Super Castlevania IV for the Super NES crashes. Most emulated games , however, are perfect, although adjusting settings on in the emulator software is sometimes required.
Our favorite games for each emulator are also revealed in this issue. Most importantly, the top games of all time, recommended by C. A. Passinault, who is a video game expert and possibly one of the top experts in the country, are explored.
If you love video games, don’t miss this issue.
Like all issues, this issue remains in play, and is updated as-needed; it is the official issue covering this subject.


Welcome to the issues archive for Frontier Pop.
