Upgrade Complete: the Goal of the Game is to Upgrade the Game
It’s true! It may be confusing as a concept, but once you start playing the Flash-based Upgrade Complete you’ll see how straightforward it is. Meta-video games like this are more often than not bursting with humor, and Upgrade Complete is no exception.

Onslaught of the Electric Zombies: Zombie Minesweeper

Onslaught of the Electric Zombies: Zombie Minesweeper
Minesweeper is one of the things I miss from running Windows. I’m sure there are browser versions available, but it’s just not the same as opening up that friendly little window and clicking around, only to have my butt blasted across the room.

Microsoft (Mis)Educates Best Buy Employees About Linux

Microsoft (Mis)Educates Best Buy Employees About Linux
A Best Buy employee recently posted screenshots of what he claims is part of a training program about Windows 7. The screenshots show some Windows vs. Linux comparisons. You probably know where this is going. The employee is overclock.net forum member GodofGrunts, and here are some of the screenshots he posted: Now I have never used any Linux OS, but even if it’s true that there are fewer major software that are compatible with the system, I am pretty damn sure that there at least 2 Linux apps that provide video chat – Skype and Pidgin.

Minicooker Pc Oven Casemod: Now That’S Cookin’ With Gas
Why would you want to make a PC that looked exactly like a kitchen appliance? Dunno, maybe just so you could say it could be done?

Horsey-Version of ‘Odin’ Summon Shows Up at Japanese Toy Show

Horsey-Version of ‘Odin’ Summon Shows Up at Japanese Toy Show
Someone over at Square Enix must be a fan of Transformers. I say this because for some reason, all Final Fantasy’s classic “summons” now have alternate vehicle modes in Final Fantasy XIII. For example, Shiva is now summoned as two ladies who combine to form some sort of lesbian motorcycle.

Retro-Ize That iPhone With a Game Boy Case

Retro-Ize That iPhone With a Game Boy Case
Sure, the iPhone is cool and all, but it’s awfully slick and modern. Oh, if only it were a little more brick-shaped and didn’t have all those pesky colors in the screen. Monochrome, that’s what I want… monochrome, and a good game of Tetris.

LEGO Brick USB Hub is Doing It Wrong

LEGO Brick USB Hub is Doing It Wrong
I see what’s going on here, a device with a I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-LEGO case, nothing new. Everyone seems to be crapping brick gadgets these days.

Craymachine Lets You Type Beats

Craymachine Lets You Type Beats
The craymachine is a bitchin’ way to kill time. If the iPhone had a keyboard this would’ve been a cool app. So what is it? It’s a flash-based synthesizer; a sound is mapped to each letter on your keyboard, ranging from the normal but essential bass drum of b to the intergalactic croak of w.

Shank: It’S a Beat-Em-Up, Not a Stab-Em-Up

Shank: It’S a Beat-Em-Up, Not a Stab-Em-Up
The delightfully named Shank seems to have been big business at the just-wrapped Penny Arcade Expo, with the Internet a-buzzin’ over the game’s ridiculous cartoon violence. It’s slick, it’s beautiful, and it takes its cues from beat-em-ups, which makes it automatically among the best games ever.
