Roccat Power Grid Turns Smartphones Into Gaming PC Sidekick: Razer Blade Who?

Roccat Power Grid Turns Smartphones Into Gaming PC Sidekick: Razer Blade Who?
We’ve seen a handful of gadgets that incorporate LCDs or touchscreens to keyboards to add functionality and eye candy, the most recent one being Razer’s madly overpriced Blade laptop. Now, a company called Roccat could make Razer and other gadget makers bang their heads on their wall for not thinking of this more elegant solution – an app that uses your smartphone as a secondary display and control panel.

Haptic Thumbstick Videogame Controller Renders Rumble Obsolete
Videogames are very good at engaging our eyes and ears, but when it comes to touch we still have a long way to go. Force feedback is the gaming industry’s attempt to engage our sense of touch, but it’s limited at best.

We’ve featured Supermandolini’s sweet military-style NES pin before. It turns out that the design firm actually made a few more designs of the pins and calls the collection the Console Wars Veteran series, representing both the grizzled vets and the high-tech rookies of console gaming.

Game Point Art Print: How I See Myself
A videogame is the only form of art that can not only simulate an experience but immerse its audience through interaction. That simulation is of course flawed and limited – Daigo Umehara wouldn’t stand a chance against a real martial artist – but still.

Fallout NES Cartridge Art: Relic from a Pre-Post-Nuclear Era

Fallout NES Cartridge Art: Relic from a Pre-Post-Nuclear Era
I’ve talked about 72pins before, but their latest cartridge is just too damn good not to share. The NEStalgic shop collaborated with artist Nick Robalik to create a Fallout NES cartridge, which will surely fetch a vault full of bottle caps in the post-nuclear world.

Project P.E.W. Mod: LARPing in Skyrim

Project P.E.W. Mod: LARPing in Skyrim
It’s been less than a week since Bethesda Softworks released the Skyrim Creation Kit but their goodwill has already paid off. Why do I say that? Because of Project P.E.W., a mod by YouTuber birgirpall.

iCade 8-Bitty iOS/Android Gamepad: Retro Controller for Modern Devices
Button-friendly gaming on mobile devices will soon become more portable. While Ion Audio recently announced a variety of new controllers for iOS devices, this could be the best idea yet.

The Witcher 2 Easter Egg: Assassins of Assassin’s Creed

The Witcher 2 Easter Egg: Assassins of Assassin’s Creed
All assassins worth their salt know that jumping into a cart full of hay is the quickest way to descend from a great height.  That gimmick won’t fly (or land safely) in the world of the Witcher though, as revealed by this Easter Egg in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings:

Minecraft Creator Notch Willing to Fund Psychonauts 2: One Man Kickstarter

Minecraft Creator Notch Willing to Fund Psychonauts 2: One Man Kickstarter
Tim Schafer is one of the most respected developers and creative minds in the video game industry. Unfortunately our world does not transact in respect – Schafer was recently quoted as having pitched a sequel to his critically-acclaimed platformer Psychonauts to publishers, all to no avail.

Then I Took an Arrow in the Heart T-Shirt: for Skyrim Sweethearts

Then I Took an Arrow in the Heart T-Shirt: for Skyrim Sweethearts
If you’ve lost yourself in the world of Skyrim, you might have forgotten that Valentine’s Day is coming up. Better I remind you a week before – the sooner you get your plan and presents together, the sooner you can get back to gaming.

Kinect Russian Roulette: Project Fatal
Most independent projects that use the Kinect are not related to video games, so I was thrilled when I read about Theo Watson, who was able to make a Kinect game in just 3 hours.
