  • Goldeneye 2010 making a return debut on the Nintendo Wii?

    The greatest first person shooter of all time is about to make a comeback! I know I've reminisced about the best James Bond game ever, GoldenEye (N64) before, but another rumor fresh out of the mill has my senses piqued and inner child remembering days past. The man with the message is Craig Peck. Mr. Peck apparently spent all of July - September working on scene layout and camera animation for the upcoming "GoldenEye 2010", a remade, souped up version of the original. Shooters aren't everyo...
  • Netflix soon coming to a PS3 near you!

    Starting in November, US PS3 owners will be able to take advantage of all the streaming goodness Netflix has to offer. Sony's closest competitor, Microsoft with the Xbox 360, has had Netflix support for almost a year now. The Xbox 360 wasn't the only piece of hardware to support Netflix however as many other TV box services and hardware currently feature varying amounts of Netflix support. Because of that, this PS3 adoption is important for continual growth for Sony's gaming love child. The ...

    Feeling generous and have the deep pockets to support such an attitude? If so, a giant LEGO Mario may be in order for you. The LEGO Mario above stands 5' 9" and consists of over 40,000 LEGO pieces. Originally created by renowned LEGO sculptor Dirk VH for the Ronald McDonald House charity foundation, Mario the giant has since moved on to eBay in search of a new home. As of October 24th at 9:20 pm (EST), good 'ol Mario is sitting right at 2,500 Euros ($3,755 USD). Ya, being a nerd and/or co...
  • PC Games made made fresh and ready to order at new Microsoft Store.

    It's pretty much a given that any consumer electronic/gadget store is going to have a boat load of drool inducing products and services crammed under one roof. I mean, that's the whole point you go to such a store. But one particular feature of Microsoft's new Scottsdale, Arizona stands out from the rest and is actually really cool. So what is it? PC Games are made fresh on the spot for each order. Throughout the store, customers will find game kiosks which allow the customer to browser ...
  • Coolest Xbox mod ever gutted and submerged in mineral oil
    by Mike
    Posted October 23rd, 2009 at 10:31 am
    Really want to amaze your fronts with the coolest Xbox mod in the world? Alright then. All you need is game unit (in this case an original Xbox was used), a fish tank, and some mineral oil. You see, mineral oil doesn't have the same electronic slaying conductive properties as many other liquids do. Repeat: DO NOT try this with just any liquid! The Xbox pictured above is as your eyes can see, submerged in the liquidy mineral matter -- save for the hard drive and optical drive for obvious ...
  • GameFly’s GameCenter iPhone app a must have for gamers
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 8:48 pm
    Could I say game once more in the title? Game! Ok, done. Gamers no doubt know about the GameFly rental service allowing you to bypass dodgy brick and mortar stores and instead go digital. Kind of. With GameFly, you can browse thousands of games online, finding out untold amounts of information. Once you find a game to your liking, you simply have it shipped to you, play it, grow tired of it, and eventually return it via snail mail. Seems handy does it not? Because we digital folk don't l...
  • Major Nelson says Stevie was wrong/confused/doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about — Blu-ray still not coming to Xbox 360
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 7:22 pm
    Remember that bit of Steve Ballmer loose lip that went down many hours prior to this very second? During an interview, Steve was quoted as saying not specifically saying that Xbox 360 hardware was to see Blu-ray add-on accessories, but that if the Xbox were to get Blu-ray, it would be via external forms. Many including myself took this as a sort of admission by omission if you know what I mean. Side stepping hot topics often leaves the Balms in a stuttering incoherent state, this wasn't any...
  • Steve Ballmer’s loose lips reveal upcoming Xbox 360 Blu-ray external drive? [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 5:41 am
    **Update: Ya, not so much. 'ol Stevie was off his rocker and was probably confused. That's what Major Nelson is saying anyway. Thank you Mr. Steve "The Balms" Ballmer for your clownish persona and loose lips. You may have just given us some hope for ways of enjoying HD content other than Xbox live. In an interview with Gizmodo's Wilson Rothman, Steve Ballmer says the following when questioned about the potential for Blu-ray support coming to the Xbox line: Well I don't know if we nee...
  • Xbox Live Dasboard preview sign up closed. First round of updates to go live Friday!
    by Mike
    Posted October 21st, 2009 at 8:07 pm
    The procrastinating social butterflies out there will no doubt be kicking themselves if they didn't sign up to be part of the first group of previewers fortunate enough to get their hands on the latest Xbox 360 dashboard update. Said update is reported to be going live Friday for those lucky early adopters. Of course, if delays rear their ugly heads, don't say I didn't warn you. The significance of this update is the social aspect that gets added in. Namely Twitter, Facebook, and H...
  • Play mind games like its 2063 with the Telekinetic Obstacle Course

    Though mind reading and mind control were reserved for science classrooms and geeks foretelling of futuristic tales, it appears that we've leapfrogged several decades as mind control is coming to the! While controlling objects with brain waves isn't new, (as hospitals and research labs have been researching and toying with such issues for years now), having a smaller, consumer based example isn't something you exactly see in the Toys 'R Us weekly ad. Hammacher Schlemmer has steppe...
  • NES catridge becomes mobile gaming powerhouse…

    Posted October 12th, 2009 at 5:54 am
    Feelin' like getting some retro mobile gaming in while you wait for whatever it is you're waiting for? This Portable "game-in-a-game" system that appeared over at BenHeck's Forums is a prime example of what geeks such as us are all about. Before you even begin to whip out your wallet, perhaps you'd like to know a tad more, hmm? Forget looking for the latest in gaming tech inside this little working wonder. Instead, some "generic Chinese media player" is the life blood that makes this gee...
  • Survey Says: PSP Go’s early days are “nothin’ but a headache”.
    by Mike
    Posted October 12th, 2009 at 5:32 am
    Even before Sony's PSP Go launched, many more critical gamers were quick to notice the inflated price and unchanged specs from previous versions of the gaming device. While current PSP users didn't really have much reason to upgrade, it seemed that for gamers new to the PSP scene, the PSP Go was a rather worthy choice. However, the launch was anything but perfect. With Sony backing down on previous UMD -> trade in programs to problems with transferring legally purchased content from your P...
