Max Payne Movie – First Look

Posted by Damon on March 11, 2008

Everyone favorite gun sporting constipational (is that even a word?) vigilante is making his way to the silver screen ala Mark Wahlberg. That’s right, this is the first leeked photo of Marky Mark as Max Payne minus the pursed lips. The hype around this movie is very low right now with not much more than “we are making a Max Payne movie staring Mark Wahlberg” being said but I’m sure as time goes on we will hear more about this one. Not sure if Max Payne is the game I would have chosen to adapted into movie format but I guess someone liked it. The best part of the game, which is the drug induced slow motion scenes, better be done right is all I have to say. From what I hear they are shooting (heh shooting) for a PG-13 rating which is a horrible move, but hey, who knows right. Like always, expect more on this academy award winner as time goes on.

Get crippling revenge on your mouse hand in style

Posted by Damon on March 8, 2008

asus-ms71-2.jpg

I’m not sure what to think of this one, an anti-ergonomic mouse with a gimmick. You got it, that thing in the pic above is the Asus MS71 wireless mouse with a built in thumbdrive of an undisclosed storage size. The concept behind this device is a good one but the execution needs a little bit of work. On this guy here the bottom of it comes off and you have a Lego-looking like thumb drive that better house at least 4 GB to even be remotely worth the using this Carpal Tunnel giving device. Why they couldn’t simply make a normal sized mouse with a slide out thumb drive or something of the sort that consumers would actually like is beyond me, I guess someone at Asus has a taste for rectangles. On a brighter note, no release date or price as of yet but if you want to head over and read the original article, which only has a couple more images, then click here.
