Windows Start Menu slated to return in the near future

In a marked change of pace for typical Windows releases, Terry Myerson, head of Microsoft’s Windows and Xbox software division, demonstrated a prototype build of a hybridized Start Menu. Combining the classic function of the Start button, along with the ability to dock live tiles inside of the menu, this heralds the possibility of the mobile/desktop integration that Microsoft has been touting as finally becoming a reality. This update comes as a pleasant surprise as Windows 8’s development roadmap was only believed to contain one major update, which …

Hug, kiss, and chest bump total strangers in PlayStation Home

I forget that PlayStation Home is still a functional piece of software that receives regular content updates, not some lost relic to marvel (and poke fun) at. It’s hard to say who in their right mind is messing around with Home in 2014 — I’d love to hear explanations — but developer nDreams is giving them some new gestures to play with. Let’s just have the official description cover this one:
“Time to get closer than ever to people in PlayStation Home with a bunch of interactive two-player gestures. With these …

Review: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate

Home key attack! It feels so good to type on super responsive keys, especially for someone that spends 6-8 hours a day typing on those chicklet-style laptop keyboards.

Review: Batman: Arkham Origins: Cold, Cold Heart

Thousands of years ago, people defeated god. They believed evil could be excised from humanity. Sinners were marked with tattoos and exiled. People also believe vaccinations lead to autism and that How I Met Your Mother is a good television show. Point is, people believe dumb, wrong things.
Fast forward to Lords of the Fallen‘s present and the demons have returned once more. The good, upstanding people of civilized life turn to the man who committed the most deadly sins, the man whose facial tattoos make Zell and Tyson cower.
That man …
