posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2016 days, 20 hours, 22 minutes ago
Wednesday, February 15, 2012 8:41:38 AM GMT
Kinect hacks previously brought gesture and voice control to Boxee and XBMC, and now that the Kinect for Windows hardware has been released we've got a solution for Windows Media Center. The aptly named Kinect for Media Center brings all the normal playback controls (for WMC and add-ins like Netflix) to your fingertips and lips, at the cost of $6.99. (more)

Office 15 on Windows on ARM Completely Free? Probably Not

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2016 days, 20 hours, 29 minutes ago
Wednesday, February 15, 2012 8:34:39 AM GMT
After Microsoft released its detailed description of Windows on ARM (WOA) last week, there has been some speculation as to the pre-installed Office 15 apps. Essentially, will they be free, or will they each have their own pricetag, or will users be required to purchase the entire Office 15 suite? (more)

Apple Now Worth More than Google and Microsoft Combined

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2018 days, 20 hours, 36 minutes ago
Monday, February 13, 2012 8:27:44 AM GMT
Apple has a lot of money. This we know. However, the company passed a jaw-dropping milestone this week that accurately illustrates just how much the Cupertino-based company is actually worth. Apple shares surged to an all-time high yesterday, passing the $490 mark and closing at $493.17. This is up $16.49 from just one day previously and represents a 3.46 percent increase for the day. More interestingly, it pushed Apple's capitalization to just shy of $460 billion. This is more than rivals Microsoft and ... (more)

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City might not be the new hotness for the series (try this week's Resident Evil: Revelations) or the most anticipated franchise announcement (that's Resident Evil 6), but it is set to include some familiar faces.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning review: A tempting fate

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2024 days, 20 hours, 52 minutes ago
Tuesday, February 07, 2012 8:11:50 AM GMT
Confession time: I have not finished Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Over the last several days, I've poured over thirty hours into the enormous world. After twenty or so, I resolved to avoid secondary tasks and focus on primary quests, hoping to finish the campaign before composing this review. And then, after reaching a milestone in the story, it occurred to me: I don't want to do that. (more)

The Rhythm Of The Quest in Fallout 3 and New Vegas

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2028 days, 18 hours, 54 minutes ago
Friday, February 03, 2012 10:09:42 AM GMT
Have you ever been horribly frustrated by one part of a game, only to think of it as the best and most memorable section of that game in retrospect? It's the ruins of D.C. for me. I played Fallout 3 on the PC a year or so after release, so the first thing I did was load up on mods, introducing different play balance, graphics, more weapons, and most motivating of all, more music for Galaxy News Radio. But at the start of the game, GNR is in trouble and the station's signal is weak. So I went to fix it as... (more)

Microsoft has launched a Facebook app called Mass Effect 3 Mission Command, that both serves as promotion for the upcoming Mass Effect 3, and an opportunity to get some in-game items. You "log in" to Mission Command (which grants EA access to your Facebook account and email), and then you have to fulfill missions like recruiting your friends, posting pickup lines for Liara, downloading the demo, or sharing movies of you pretending to be in the game.

Microsoft Officially Revealing Halo 4 This Month

Friday, February 03, 2012 9:56:25 AM GMT
Typically we don't cover console games, but the Halo franchise is an exception. Most of us have played -- and still own -- at least one of the seven titles released over the course of eleven years, maybe even the original Halo on PC (just admit to having an Xbox, it's ok, we understand). That said, many readers may be waiting anxiously for Halo 4, Microsoft's first full-fledged venture into the Halo universe without holding Bungie's hand. (more)
