Rant: When a Video Game Console Case Mod Goes Wrong

250°
269w ago - I have nothing against case mods, I've seen some nice mods over the years. But sometimes... things start to go south.

To the left is a normal looking PlayStation 2 system. Nothing out of the ordinary, PS2 stand, little pink memory card... but the eye sore on the right? Don't ask, I still can't figure out what is going on.

I figure the original PS2 brand on the console wasn't suffice enough for this person. No they had to go out, buy car branding letters so in case you were on the other side of the street passing by he/she or maybe he she's home you can still that's a PS2 in the living room.

Also if you're eyes haven't combusted in its sockets for watching this throw up, very intimidating dragon on the upper right side. If this wasn't enough of a car accident, this person finds a way to hit new lows... for whatever reason that I'm sure God himself is unable to answer if put on the spot.

A giant fan, why? I have no clue. I never knew PS2 systems had an over heading issue, but evidently no one told this rock.

Nothing saying PlayStation 2 like car decals, and giant fans, if it even is functional. Which is sad if it is, as this person should have been electrocuted during the install process.

Sadly the video game gods must have been upset at the world this...

3D Realms Closes Down, Duke Nukem Goes Bust

50°
272w ago - Founded in 1987, the firm popularized the concept of shareware gaming and published the seminal Duke Nukem and Wolfenstein 3D first-person shooters.

The company was working on a follow-up title, Duke Nukem Forever, which after being in development for 12 years has become the object of industry derision.

Publisher, Take-Two says it will no longer fund development of the game but retains rights to the title.

"We can confirm that our relationship with 3D Realms for Duke Nukem Forever was a publishing arrangement, which did not include ongoing funds for development of the title," said Take-Two's Alan Lewis in a statement.

There has been no official comment from 3D Realms, other than a forum posting from the company's webmaster, Joe Siegler, who said: "It's not a marketing thing. It's true. I have nothing further to say at this time."

Other companies with links to 3D Realms or the Duke Nukem series were quick to distance themselves.

In a posting on Twitter, Apogee Software said it was "officially not affected by the situation at 3DRealms".

"Development of the Duke Nukem Trilogy is continuing as planned and further announcements about upcoming games will be made in the near future," the statement added.

InFamous Goes Gold, Another PS3 Killer Game is Upon Us?

275w ago - According to the PlayStation Blog today, InFamous has now [Register or Login to view links].

In just over a month (May 26th, 2009) the PS3 will launch another big console exclusive in Sucker Punch Products third person shooter inFamous.

This coming just a few months after the release of Killzone 2 will leave many Sony fans asking for the first time since the PS3's release, "What game should I play?"

So why might InFamous be a killer game?

It is Crackdown meets Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. The games setting takes you to Empire City, a setting ravaged by a massive explosion supposedly caused by Cole McGrath, the character you play. You are free to wander the Empire City ala Crackdown only you have badass powers comparable to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

Your powers include shooting electricity at your enemies, forming and electrical shield to repel foes and their weapons and creating electrical grenades that are thrown and explode in similar fashion to plasma grenades in Halo. No more linear levels like those found in Force Unleashed which should result in a more creative use of your powers.

InFamous may not be as simple and mindless as it sounds though as it contains its own RPG like element in...
