  • The Work-a-holic – If they’re working late, working at home, and working on the road, they need a desktop stand that can take them from place to place with ease. Give them the Z-Lift Notebook Stand – it’s thin, which makes it ultra portable. The Z-lift sets up in dozens of positions, giving them maximum variety for their busy workload!

PC World Shares List of Great Sort-of-Sequels

Sep 8, 2009

When a team of developers moves from one fan-loved property to a new project, there’s always some hubbub about how much of the previous game’s spirit will remain intact and what changes to the play experience gamers can expect.   There are gaming luminaries (Suda 51, Tim Schaefer, Peter Molyneux, Hideo Kojima and Fumito Ueda, just to name a few) whose trademark flourishes give them a cult following – even if they were to announce that they were working on a movie tie-in kart racer.

While there’s sure to be some debate over the merits of Bioshock over System Shock and someone lamenting that Snatcher didn’t show up as a spiritual successor to Blade Runner (yes, the C64 game based on the Vangelis score from the movie, not the actual movie itself), the list is a fun read – and arguing the merits of Xenosaga over Xenogears with your friends is fun, right?  You can check out the list here.

Happy Belated Birthday, Gamer’s Desk!

Sep 1, 2009

Has it really been a year? LapWorks, a leading retailer of notebook computer lap desks and desk stands, is happy to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the launch of its new flagship product, The Gamer’s Desk.

Since July 2008, the Gamer’s Desk has sold thousands of units, making it one of LapWorks’ most popular products. The peripheral has also received unmitigated praise from the press and the blogosphere alike. Computer Shopper calls the Gamer’s Desk “an excellent addition to your arsenal.” Avault’s Mark Turcotte says, “…in short, it’s cool.”

Made of high-impact ABS plastic, the Gamer’s Desk is available in several configurations. Consisting of an award-winning laptop desk and MouzPad or ultra-large (8”x11”) Max MouzPad, the Gamer’s Desk can range in size from 26” to over 30”, enough room to accomodate a gaming keyboard and a large mousing area for precision gameplay while still rigid and lightweight. The desk folds for easy transport and storage, and also doubles as an adjustable desk or table stand.

Jo Jo Marks, Director of Marketing at Ideazon, says that “the Gamers Desk helps bring PC gaming into the living room, where gamers can leave their desks behind….”

While the Gamer’s Desk continues to set a new standard for mobile gaming peripherals, LapWorks is beginning work on the future of the line. Designed for gamers with input from gamers, a new ‘ultimate’ Gamer’s Desk model will debut in Q1 2010.

Sad About Sadness?

Aug 20, 2009

Technically, this isn’t a PC game, and it’s certainly not laptop friendly, but it is a development horror story that I’ve been following for awhile, so bear with me.

One of the earliest titles announced for the Nintendo Wii, Sadness quickly fell off the radar amidst claims that the developer was a fraud and it has become a storied example of vaporware (games that are announced but never released). The most recent news is still Polish developer Nibris’s storied absence from the 2008 Game Developer’s Conference after confirming that they would attend.

The game, a black-and-white Gothic-themed survival horror title, follows an aristocrat and her blind son has they travel through a game scenario based around Slavic mythology. Sadness first garnered fans’ attention with a very attractive and atmospheric trailer. However, the developers have yet to produce any substantial gameplay footage. The game’s publisher, Frontline Studios, parted with Nibris in 2007. Last year, when the dev relaunched their website, Sadness had an Autumn 2009 release date attached to it – a date that hasn’t changed since, and with Autumn 09 just around the corner, the complete lack of detail seems to indicate that the release isn’t happening.

Over on Destructoid, blogger Gamernerd101 rails against Nintendo for not supporting second party developers, listing Nibris of one of the casualties of the House of Miyamoto’s onanism. While Gamernerd101 has a point, Nibris is not a model example to use. It’s become clearer and clearer over the years that there was never a substantial plan to bring Sadness to market, just a surprisingly effective amount of viral hype.
