ZombiU heading to PS4, Xbox One, and PC as ‘Zombi’

It has been a few years since ZombiU, the zombie game for Nintendo's Wii U, made its first appearance.

LEGO computer gets even smaller with micro PC system

For some people, a PC isn't just a work horse. It's also a way of life. For these people, sprucing up their computers is just as important as beefing them up with specs and features.
