The Ultimate Gaming FPS simulator or the 1st Holodeck!
This ultimate gamFPS simulator was built by the crew at “The Gadget Show” a tech show from England on Channel 5. Armed with the E3 demo of Battlefield 3 and about $650,000 they have made the closest thing to a holodeck I’ve ever seen! Using ambient lighting, a hacked Kinect controller, a floor that lets you simulate walking without moving, some remote contolled paintball guns, and a 360 degree full room screen these guys have built something insanly cool! So, if you got that kinda scratch lying around watch the video to learn how to build your own! Source: Engadget

Things to know about the Nintendo 3DS
Today 3DS games will hit the shelves five days before the 3DS system itself. Such games will include The Sims, Madden, Ridge Racer, and Ghost Recon to name a few. So in light of the upcoming release here is a few things to note about the 3DS. — The 3DS is backward compatible with all DS games (non-3DS games will not use the 3D effect) — Nintendo added a left joystick for better movement and accuracy — Added “Home” button. This will pause the game allowing you to to access other items like the Nintendo shop without having to stop the game — The light for battery now shows others colors for other notifications. Red- low battery, Green — normal, Orange — Friend, Blue — Wi-Fi — The 3D effect can be turned up, turned down, or completely turned offRead more…

Playstation Phone (Xperia Play)
Ever since its first release Ive been a fan of the PSP, all up until the PSP Go which was way smaller than it should have been, a slimmer slider PSP is way cool, but they should have at least kept it the same size. Instead Sony made it smaller and something that only a small child could properly handle. Now I get that the Ipod touch has always had a smaller screen than PSP and it does just fine, however the ipod didnt start with gaming as a soul purpose thus a smaller screen was justified. Having said this its not surprise that the PSP Go didnt do as well as was hoped, and now Sony is trying to pick up the slack with a Playstation Phone. As a phone everything the smaller size will be justified. The smallerRead more…

R.A.T 7 Review: Gods Gift to Gamers?
If you are here you are probably wondering what the hell that weird looking $100 mouse is that you saw at your local microcenter, Best Buy or Newegg and if it is truly worth the rather steep price tag that is attached to it that my made your girlfriend question dating you and you wife consider leaving you. I decided to pick this mouse up after all the hype I have heard around it and the fact that every time I went to ask about it somewhere it was almost always sold out. I have been going to my local Microcenter after work for 3 weeks now trying to pick one up. I finally managed to get one today and have been playing with it. After opening the box and playing with it there several things that really stand outRead more…

Eyefinity Reveiw and Setup Instructions
So this Black Friday I decided to hang around newegg and I found myself 2 x Hanns·G HZ251HPB Black 25″ in addition to my Hannspree HF289H 28″ monitor. I decided to do this because I already owned a Sapphire 5850 1GB and I had never messed around with multi monitor displays. I’ll cover my results and the parts required to make it work. I searched the internet far and wide for instructions on how to set this up and make it work and I finally got it all figured out and I’ll cover it below. So lets start with my build. I’m running on a Gigabyte motherboard, with 8gb of DDR3 CL7, AMD Phenom II 965 and a Sapphire 5850 1gb and the monitors listed above. To do an eyefinity setup you need 3 monitors and a ATI card capeable of doing eyefinity. Read more…
