Back in the day, most of the games in arcades were stand-up cabinets, but a few were sit down table style games. I don’t remember ever seeing wall mounted arcade games back in the day, but there are a handful of them available these days.
Some people have some crazy computer gaming rigs, but this guy takes the cake. In this recent video, Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy demonstrates his crazy computer gaming rig valued at over $30,000. It’s more like bragging.
Way back in the day, I went straight from high school to college into a medical program that saw me going from a broke high-school student to 19-year-old with an actual career making good money. The very first thing I bought with my very first paycheck was a 3DO game system and a copy of Myst.
Twitch user JurassicJunkie was streaming the creepy survival horror game Outlast 2 the other night, and all things seemed business as usual. Right up until a cute little blonde child sneaked up on him, and he literally screamed like a little girl.

As a child of the ’80s we didn’t have fidget spinners when I was growing up. We also had to walk uphill both ways in the snow to school, but that is another story. The closest we had to a fidget spinner in my house was twirling the TV remote between your fingers until it shot across the room and bounced off the all glass console TV screen, and the punishment that followed.
Bethesda has announced that during the holiday weekend anyone can play the awesome Fallout 4 video game for free. If you haven’t played the game, this is your chance to want Preston Garvey dead along with the rest of us.
I’ve used a number of computer mice over the years, from the rudimentary upside-down trackball types of days gone by, to high-tech wireless laser and multitouch mice. They each have had their time in the sun at my desk, but it’s time to say goodbye to all of them now that I’ve found the SteelSeries Rival 700.
I’ve never really had a problem watching 3D movies in the theater with nausea or tired eyes. I can’t say the same about the 3DS that my son had. The top screen on that portable literally made my eyes cross and I hated it.
