I was just watching that Family Guy episode where they referred to Imperial Walkers as “robot camels,” and they are so right. Not that it makes AT-ATs any less cool – especially when the AT-AT in question is actually a computer.
When it comes to shooters, I really enjoy playing as a sniper. I get a sick thrill of taking out an enemy when he does even know I’m there. You can bet I was interested when I heard Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 was coming to the PC and game consoles this year.
We’ve featured a lot of unique case mods, but this has to be the most beautiful and detailed one that I’ve ever seen. It’s called the AzTtec and Dan McGrath is the talented architect and artisan behind it.
Developers Fatshark and Paradox just released a trailer for the upcoming game War of the Roses. I was sold on this game as soon as I saw the guy getting stabbed in the eye. The game is currently being developed and it is like a first person shooter that is also historical.
Cooking from the inside out is what microwave cooking computing is all about. Of course if your computer were a microwave, you won’t be able to escape the aroma of the ghost of Hot Pockets past as it heats up.
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.
It’s been a while since I’ve spotted a cool casemod I thought was worth of a mention. Here’s one that I think you’ll like – assuming you enjoy movies about the mob. What you’re looking at here, my friends, is the Godfather of computers, literally.
I used to ride My Little Pony, until I took an arrow to the knee. Thankfully, I can still get some My Little Pony Action in a horrifying, flying little girl toy way. A geek going by the gibberish name zdzichorowerzysta, which I believe to be Russian for ZOMG… Ponies, has crafted what may be the cutest and strangest Skyrim mod yet.
Having a moveable computer case won’t come in handy in daily use, but it would save you a lot of time and back pain when you do need to move or transport it. Which is why I envy Stephen Popa – not only does his PC case have wheels, it’s actually a remote controlled car, so he can have fun with it even when the PC is turned off.
This mini PC is called The Aerodyne, and it’s supposed to evoke the look of classic streamline trains and skyscrapers like The Chrysler Building. For what it’s worth, the Aerodyne definitely looks more attractive than the typical plastic or metal computer cases we see these days.
Everybody is playing Skyrim, but not the way that YouTube user KinectFAAST is playing. He has unveiled a new Skyrim hack that allows players to use Microsoft’s Kinect motion controller with the game. All you have to do is watch the video to see how great this hack is.
Most of today’s portable consumer computers are nothing but screen – tablets, smartphones, media players, etc. We also have monitors and HDTVs that have their own USB or HDMI ports. A Norweigan company called FXI Technologies is taking advantage of that and the projected rise of cloud computing by creating a pocket-size computer which has everything but a screen.
Last year, a man named Barry Altman founded Commodore USA, LLC and acquired the rights to the Commodore computer brand. His company has since relaunched the brand along with the Commodore 64, the legendary all-in-one computer in a keyboard that inspired a generation of programmers, tinkerers and gamers.
Libratone has released some new AirPlay-compatible speaker systems for you iPad, iPhone and iPods. The brand is pretty popular in Europe, and they’ll soon be launching some AirPlay-enabled sound systems in the US. Their products aren’t cheap, but they’ll fit into a modern pad, and they’ll probably please users who like minimalism.
I’d like to think that I’m not as cynical or heavily nostalgic when it comes to video games, but sometimes I do miss the simpler times of gaming. Back in those days I didn’t have to download a patch every week, and then after downloading that I have to download another patch for the game I’m about to play, even if it was released just a week ago (I’m looking at you, NBA 2K12!).
