I have a tendency to enjoy my daily blogging at very random locations throughout the house. It just depends on my mood. Typically I enjoy my desk, due to my monitor setup and my very comfortable desk chair. However, the couch occasionally wins me over and I end up in the living room with my laptop lying on my lap.
While I've been a little worried about having a Guitar Hero expansion that focuses on a single band, I am looking forward to the Aerosmith game. I love me some classic rock, and there are plenty of good tracks to choose from. Speaking of tracks, we finally have access to the entire set list for the game. Hit the jump and check it out.
The latest firmware for the Wii made more than a few people upset with its ability to render both the Twilight Princess hack and Freeloader useless. We told you that the team at Hackmii was already preparing to release a workaround to one of those hacks. It's not even been a week and they've already managed to release this “fix”.
When Crysis was released, it raised the bar for gaming graphics on a PC. Of course this also made it the tool which gamers used to measure their PC's performance.

It's no big secret that the Nintendo Wii isn't quite the powerhouse that the PS3 or even Xbox 360 is. For this reason we tend to see games with less content present on the Wii.

Gamers are used, by now, to manufacturers telling them they need a specific keyboard in order to unlock their maximum play potential. Sometimes that means colored keys, other times it's easy to program macros, and occasionally - as in the case of the Wolfking Warrior XXtreme we're looking at today - it's a whole new layout. Like other ergonomic 'boards, the Warrior XXtreme promises its alternative key arrangement helps your fingers work faster; more specifically, though, it's aimed at keen FPS, RPG and RTS gamers.
Startup and cloud computing aficionados CherryPal have unveiled their first compact PC. Powered by a 400MHz Freescale mobileGT MPC5121e processor, the 10.5oz computer has a scant 256MB of RAM, 4GB of flash memory and WiFi b/g.

Bad news if you're the sort of person who starts feeling guilty at having recorded dozens of shows but not actually watched any of them: Cannon PC have just released a demo video of their latest Windows Media Center mod, simultaneously recording six high-definition programs via six separate CableCARDs. If you're not familiar with Media Center, you might not see why that's special; not only does the OS only natively support two CableCARDs, but usually gobbling up all that HD footage would quickly gobble up all your CPU cycles.
