Sanwa peripherals have touch pads built in

Reminiscent of your notebook, these keyboards, presumable designed for desktop use, are wireless keyboards with touch-pads built in. I don’t know how many of you are a fan of your laptop’s touch-pad navigation methods, but I am assuming the percentage is low.

Television Remote Control Jammer

Television Remote Control Jammer

Hey, now you can mess up your next trade show too. This trick isn’t quite as bad as it doesn’t turn the TV’s off, it just makes the remote controls useless, which could also be considered worse.

Our friend Judy over at GearDiary was lucky enough to get a Ugobe Pleo for review not and she just posted the final review. If you are interested in buying one, I’d recommend you hop on over to her site and read the whole thing.

The Gamerator is back!

The Gamerator is back!

Remember last November when we showed you the holy grail of arcade cabinets? You know the one, the Gamerator. This awesome cabinet was a one-of-a-kind design that was up for grabs on eBay. Apparently the makers had such a response that they decided to mass-produce them. That's right, you can get your own!

Rock Band and Guitar Hero sales outperformed legal music downloads last year

Rock Band and Guitar Hero sales outperformed legal music downloads last year

It's a well-guarded secret that I play Guitar Hero and Rock Band. The previous statement was, in fact, a lie. I play them quite often (Rock Band more than Guitar Hero these days) and find myself buying new downloadable tracks on a regular basis. Apparently I'm not alone, as the games actually pulled in more money last year than all of the (legal) digital music downloads combined.

3D Realms says Duke Nukem Forever is really coming, again

If you asked me what the most highly-anticipated (and most joked-about) game of all time was, I would have to go with Duke Nukem Forever. Seriously, this game has been in development since I was around 10. It wasn't long ago that we were teased with a new trailer for the game, and now the game's Art Director is claiming that they are currently “doing a lot of polishing of set pieces, environments, and characters.”

Finally, a set of pedals for Guitar Hero

Finally, a set of pedals for Guitar Hero

One of my favorite parts about Guitar Hero is when I'm rocking out, then suddenly bringing the neck up to activate star power. When it's timed right, especially during co-op, it really cranks things up to 11. Unfortunately on some songs (ahem, Jordan) timing must be absolutely precise, and during those most difficult of tracks it becomes even harder to trigger your star power. Thankfully there's a new pedal out there that can make things go a little more smoothly.
