Mass Effect 2 Garrus Cosplay Made Me Calibrate My Pants

Mass Effect 2 Garrus Cosplay Made Me Calibrate My Pants
One of the things I love in Mass Effect 2 are the detailed non-human characters. The default male Shepard looks like garbage compared to the beings around him. Based on looks alone the best made character has to be Grunt, but in general they’re all detailed and unique.

Soundfreaq Ghost Sound Platform: The (iPhone) Friendliest Ghost You Know
What is it about characters that are named Ghost that works so well? I liked Ghost in The Matrix and Matrix games, the direwolf named Ghost in A Game of Thrones, and there are probably other instances of this name working well.

Kataminey Damacraft (Katamari Daminecraft?)
Is there nothing you can’t do with Minecraft? Is this a rhetorical question? The latest and greatest repurposing of the Minecraft game engine comes in the form of a voxelated version of Namco’s quirky ball-roller Katamari Damacy.

Duke Nukem Forever Heads to Macs

Duke Nukem Forever Heads to Macs
Gamers and fans of Duke Nukem have waited decades for the latest version of the game to launch. I knew early on that if the game wasn’t perfect after such hype and a massive wait things weren’t going to be pretty.

PS3 Jailbreak Enables Remote Play with PSP on Many PS3 Games: Why Won’t Sony Make This Official?
Before anything else: if you’re quite familiar with the PS3 jailbreak scene, then yes, this is very old news for you. Still, I think this is quite an interesting piece of news for the rest of us who are not as acquainted with the intricacies of the exploit.

LaCie Porsche Hard Drives: Speedy and Sporty, Just Like Their Cars

Mimobot Classic Transformers Series: Flash Drives in Disguise
With the impending release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, it must be quite irritating for many hardcore Transformers fans to see their beloved series be twisted the way it has been for the past three movies.

3D Printer Powered by the Sun Uses Desert Sand for Printing

3D Printer Powered by the Sun Uses Desert Sand for Printing
I think 3D printers are really cool. These things generally use some sort of glass powered or resin and are able to make a pattern into a real 3D shape using lasers. Generally the laser will harden thin layers of the resin until the finished product is complete and you have precision 3D item for you to use or play with.
