PAX East 2013: Sanctum 2 Interview

Sanctum is a game I played briefly on PC with a few friends. In short, it’s an FPS tower defense game. You can design a maze for the enemies to follow and choose which weapon emplacements will go where, all the while providing added support from your own weapon. Sanctum 2 looks to step it

PAX East 2013: Guncraft Interview

I’ll be honest, when I first saw Guncraft, I thought it was simply trying to capitalize on the Minecraft name and art style but after playing the game myself, I’ll give the developer credit on making what is a pretty fun game. The easiest way to describe the game is Call of Duty meets Minecraft,

While they had a number of new things, the two I’ll focus on right now is their upcoming backlit mechanical keyboard, the Helios RK-9200, and their new Throne PC case. The highlight

CES 2013: Samsung Galaxy Camera – Android Powered Camera

I like the Galaxy Camera. It seems to take decent pictures. It runs Android. It has a constant data connection. Yet, I don’t own one and probably never will. For someone like me that covers multiple conventions a year, it’s practical in a lot of aspects. As I mention in the video, being able to

CES 2013: Samsung Series 5, 7, and 9 Ultrabook Previews (mid 2013)

So I had a chance to see Samsung’s 2013 ultrabook offerings. As you can probably guess, the larger the number, the higher specs the computer will have. However given some of the new “ultrabook” designations by Intel for fourth gen ultrabooks, things have gotten a little interesting. For example, the Series 5 and 7 devices

CES 2013: Sifteo Cubes Interactive Game System Demo

The Sifteo blocks are rather interesting. There’s a small rectangular device that houses the games and then streams them to the other squares (cubes). However to play the games, you tilt, shake, or move the tiles in relation to each other. For example, in the colored gem game demoed in the video, your goal is

CES 2013: Attacknid Robotic Fighting Arachnids

I had a chance to check out the Attacknid’s while at the show and found them reminiscent of BattleBots. In concept they’re pretty cool but I personally found the attack mechanisms of them somewhat underwhelming. Granted, if they did much more than shoot ping pong balls or foam discs, they’d be marketing it to the military as

CES 2013: Huawei Ascend Mate Android Smartphone with a 6.1 Inch Screen

While it does sport a massive 6.1 inch screen, some of the implementations Huawei has added, such as the mini keyboard, are sure to make this device much more accessible to people wanting both a phone and a tablet in one (phablet). And if you have small hands, something such as the FlyGrip could surely
