REVIEWS Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon Review
This game is either completely awesome or knee-deep full of suck (or somewhere in the middle). Depends on who you ask.

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


But Does It Come With A Cowbell?

Harmonix threw a coming-out party for Rock Band last night at an appropriately grungy rock and roll bar in West Hollywood. The invite promised “super secret special guests.” That turned out to be an understatement. After a perfunctory Rock Band run-through in which Microsoft’s Peter Moore was able to make up for his start-button pause gaffes at the Microsoft press conference (not just once, but twice!), Harmonix gave the stage over to Eagles of Death Metal and Queens of the Stone Age for a set each. This wasn’t just a special appearance, like Jennifer Love Hewitt at E3 2003. It was a full-on concert. For geeks.


Yes, Queens of the Stone Age are that band, the one whose song Little Sister has enough cowbell to satisfy Bruce Dickinson on a bad day. And they rocked about as heavy a show as I’ve ever seen from five feet away. Harmonix is clearly reaping the benefits of their new pals at MTV.

As you might guess, the game media crowd was probably a different crowd than Queens frontman Joshua Homme was used to. He cracked at one point: “I heard this is some kind of convention. What is it, an Alcoholics Anonymous convention?” 

And he probably had a point. In the half-hearted attempt at a mosh pit, for example, many of the media were wearing courier bags.
