One Handed 360 Controller

Posted by Damon on March 18, 2008

52.jpg

If you thought playing Xbox 360 video games required one hand too many then Ben Heck, world renouned modder, has the solution for you. Ben has taken a 360 controller and built a custom shell for it and refitted the board to fit into a handy dandy single handed controller. The controller does require you to use your leg or another surface to move the right analog stick but thats a small price to pay to be able to have your hand constantly on your soda or beer while fragging n00bz in Halo 3. Pics after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Damon on March 18, 2008

god_o_war_coo_box.jpg

UPDATE: Seems I finished God of War: Chains of Olympus and the game clocks in at a completely less than average 6 hours and 18 minutes plus the time it takes to fight the final boss. This being said I am altering the Final Verdict of 5/5 to 4.25/5, which is still tremendously good. Read the rest of this entry »

Do They Really Know What We Want?

Posted by Lynn on March 17, 2008

sghl310320.jpg

While running through my normal sites, I ran across this excerpt in Gizmodo. It seems that Samsung knows what women want as far as their cellular phones go.

Female applications such as shopping list function, calorie counter and perfume matching system. WTF? The perfume matching system is based upon your favorite foods, drinks etc. As far as real specifications, nothing unique to be found here. They play MP3s and AACs, have a 2 mega pixel build in camera and for expansion, room for a micro SD card. Read the rest of this entry »

Nature’s Majesty – Frozen Waves

Posted by Damon on March 17, 2008

ice-wave-1.jpg

Some thing in nature are just too amazing to ignore, the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, giant holes in the Earth, even the seas themselves. I have decided to start a new section that will periodically be updated, Nature’s Majesty, that will contain pics and stories and videos and what not that show just how amazing this giant mud ball we live on is and how we take it for granted. People running around trying to be on time for meetings, giant expressways being built and other man-made structures all pale in comparison to the things occur naturally. To start off the section I am posting some pictures of some frozen beauties. Imagine just how fast the water had to freeze to make these ice sculptures. Pics after the jump.

God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP) – Review 5/5

Posted by Damon on March 16, 2008

god_o_war_coo_box.jpg

A couple of days ago God of War: Chains of Olympus for the PSP showed up on my doorstep, literally, and I have no idea who left it there, was weird. My birthday was Friday so I’m guessing someone got me a present and delivered it in a unique way, but after a bit of thought as to how Kratos showed up on my doorstep I grabbed my PSP and popped in my game.

Laser Purses Kick ass!

Posted by Lynn on March 15, 2008

 

Ok, I openly admit that I refuse to carry a purse. I firmly believe that what you cannot fit into your pockets is not necessary to have on you. But you damned well better believe that if a purse like this existed, I would own one in every freaking color out there! Read the rest of this entry »

According to Metro.co.uk, apparently, 45-year-old Robert Boyd from Broadlands held up a lingerie shop by knifepoint while dressed in a wig, hat and sunglasses. His defense at the time was supposedly that he truly believed that he was a Night Elf from the role playing game Shadowrun, specifically, a Night Elf shaman named Beho. Read the rest of this entry »

Reaper Returns!

Posted by Damon on March 13, 2008

reaper.jpg

UPDATE: While flipping through channels tonight I caught couldn’t find anything on TV so I decided to watch a rerun of Reaper on CW for background noise while i wrote. I glimpsed up to see Sam on a dock and thought to myself “self, when was there an episode with Sam on a dock?”, so I checked the original air date for the show and it was today! Reaper didn’t get canceled!! Just last week I read about how it was canceled and people were pissed then low and behold I’m watching a new episode tonight. Kudos to CW for either not canceling Reaper or listening to the fans and bringing it back. The rumors I hear about Supernatural being canceled better be false as well!
