About Tyler Chancey

Ever since he was small, Tyler Chancey has had a deep, abiding love for video games and a tendency to think and overanalyze everything he enjoyed. This passion continued into his adulthood as he continued to express his love of the medium across multiple different hobbyist sites, refining his creative voice. He has worn many hats as part of these endeavors. Writer, editor, consultant, PR, podcast host, the list goes on. While many of those outlets have closed their doors, the experience gained was vital.

Tyler is a major advocate for not just games as a creative medium and a form of entertainment, but in its therapeutic application for those coping with mental illness. This has extended into his coverage and love of the tabletop and TTRPG space thanks to his passionate association with non-profit organizations like The Bodhana Group, and Rise Above the Disorder. This has instilled a strong desire to ensure that all voices from all walks of life are welcome at the table and can have their moments in the spotlight, and all of the skills of communication and emotional labor that comes with it.

When he isn't writing about games, making material for his TTRPG campaigns with fellow colleagues and beloved streamers, or singing as part of his local church congregation, he spends his time disguised as nobody important.

Astro wandering through a forest

Astro's Playroom Brings Robotic Joy to PS5

Astro's Playroom is a brand new action-platformer revealed at Sony's PlayStation 5 reveal event. It appears that Sony's little robot mascot will be continuing its reputation of showing off the possibilities of Sony's new hardware. On the PlayStation 4's launch, Astro was the lead in an application called The Playroom, which took advantage of the PlayStation Camera and the Dualshock 4's light sensor to show off the possibilities of augmented reality gaming. When the PSVR headset came out, Astro Bot Rescue Mission came out, a vibrant and colorful platformer meant to showcase the possibilities of Sony's foray into VR gaming. Now it appears that Astro's Playroom will continue this tradition on the PlayStation 5, as it is yet another adorable and vibrant platformer, but this time it will be taking full advantage of the controller's brand new Dualsense haptic feedback sensor.
