MAME Cabinet Build Part 3

Well I ordered my control parts today!  I found this awesome Aussie site that sells not only the buttons and joysticks needed, but also a Keyboard Emulator to plug them all into!  It means that once they are connected, all I need to do is go into the Emulator and map the buttons or directions [...]

MAME Cabinet Build Part 2

So I've decided that getting the controller working with the Cabinet is going to be by far the hardest part so I am going to start smaller.  If I can manage to get this to work I'll then go on to the full size machine.  Thankfully, the software is going to be easy.  There is [...]

MAME Cabinet Build

So anyone that knows me knows that while I rock at computers, my wood and metal crafting skills are less than stellar. I enjoy doing stuff like that but just struggle to make it look good. Anyway, after some inspiration from a friend, I've decided that the best use for the Raspberry Pi I bought [...]

Star Citizen Update

As of writing, Star Citizen is up to $934,212 of its $2,000,000 goal.  I have also heard they are considering a Kickstarter campaign to help supplement their funds which I think is a good idea.  At this rate, they might end up falling a bit short simply for the fact that there has not been enough publicity [...]

Star Citizen and the future of PC Gaming

My first gaming memories were of playing Elite and Dig Dug at a friends place.  I got my first real chance to experiment on a PC back in primary school and got my own when I was in grade 7 back in 1993.  This wonderful machine just blew my mind.  It was an AMD 386 with a [...]

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria review Part 7 – Mining and Herbalism

Welcome to Part 7! Today I am going to go over Mining and Herbalism in Mists of Pandaria. Obviously since these are gathering professions, there isn't that much to say but I do have some tips for those starting out. Mining Mining is probably the easiest profession to level. While Herbalism requires going to Kun [...]

Welcome to Part 6 of my World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria review. Today, I am looking at the zone The Dread Wastes, the 89-90 level zone where most of you will hit 90. Well what can I say about the Dread Wastes? It is a very good zone that really feels like a culmination [...]

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria review Part 5 – Townlong Steppes

Welcome to Part 5 of my World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria review. Today, I am looking at the zone Townlong Steppes. I only completed this zone after I hit 90. On the road to 90, I completed maybe a dozen quests and went straight to Dreadwastes for a quest XP bump. I decided to [...]

Impressions from the road to Level 90

So I reached level 90 over the weekend. The main highlight apart from reaching the new max level is to finally be able to fly. It is amazing just how much of the world you DON'T see when you are on the ground. It is a whole different world up there and it has been [...]

PAX Australia in Melbourne?

Gizmodo last week posted a story saying that promotional material for PAX Australia indicates it will take place at the Melbourne Showgrounds from 19 to 21 July.  Allow me to say BOO!  While I love Melbourne, I really hoped that it might take place a little closer to home.  Sadly, the Gold Coast and Sydney already has [...]
