Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

The following review is going to be short and to the point. Not because it doesn't deserve more words, not because it's not an important product. We'd never do such a thing. Instead, this review is going to be short because there's not much to say that we didn't already say in our first Falcon Northwest Tiki review and subsequent crowning of the device as the best gaming PC of the year in 2013. Never mind the fact that it was actually unveiled before the year began.

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare live action trailer: movie time

So you've seen the gameplay trailers and the cinematic trailers for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. But have you seen real human beings wearing those war machine outfits and blasting caps through the heads of their opponents? It's time to do that now. This isn't Iron Man, and it's not Elysium. This is Advanced Warfare, and it's going to be kind crazy. The kind of crazy that includes flying bikes, big ol' guns, and the kind of wearables that let you punch through 5-inch-thick metal doors.

Assassin’s Creed Unity: Time Anomaly gets wicked weird

If you thought you'd only be in Paris during the French Revolution in Assassin's Creed: Unity, you'd be wrong. The French Revolution Simulation is collapsing. All of Assassin's Creed is a simulation, after all. You're about to be dropped in a different time entirely. Steampunk? Naw. Dropping in via Mr. Peabody and Sherman? Time travel can only be done that way in real life, of course. Looks like World War 1 atop the Eiffel Tower to us, how about you? Time to make the jump.

Under that, gamers could trade in their old unwanted video games in exchange for store credit, putting pressure on others in the used game market and leading up to what the company started today: the sale of used games. Joining this a special announcement about Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Alienware 13 and Graphics Amplifier: merging the powerful and portable

Virtual Pong replaces the ball with an orb of light

Virtual Pong replaces the ball with an orb of light

Pong has aged nicely over the years, growing from that game you played with two bland paddles to its latest virtual iteration, Virtual Pong. Dubbed such by Shaper Image, this real-world version of the game ushers in a digital projected ball and two wireless paddles for hitting it, allowing players to get off the couch and compete face to face without the hassle of losing the ball or compensating for gravity. Essentially, and somewhat futuristically, it is indoor tennis played with light.
