So much more than war...
By shandog137

The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Your Console Is Full Of Crap. Clean It Out.

Posted on Wednesday, September 19 @ 13:44:29 Eastern by

This is a picture of what my Xbox 360 had in it just one layer of perforated plastic down. See all that gray stuff? It's dust. Copious amounts of dust piling up and falling all over itself to clog every possible orifice in my 360 hardware. I realized I had a problem when I began to favor my PS3 if only for the simple fact that it was QUIETER than my Xbox 360.

If you don't have the luxury of buying a new console every few years, you're probably facing the same issue I am, but you haven't dug out the screw driver or the plastic spudger. Luckily, Dust-Off's PC and Console cleaning kit made it easier on me.

You don't have to remove the shell of your 360 to use the cleaning kit, but that's what I did to ensure that I could get as much grime out of my console as possible. I stopped at the point where I'd have to go out and buy a special screw driver to keep tearing the 360 down.

Using the included cleaning swabs, I did my best to remove any hard grime resting beneath the on-off switch and A/V slots. I followed that up the main attraction: the compressed-gas duster. I started blasting my 360 and plumes of dust flew out of the machine. The compressed-gas is powerful enough to project garbage out of your machine, while it's not going to push around any of the hardware components.


While compressed-dusters are commonplace enough, Falcon's set also comes with formulated screen cleaner and a microfiber cloth. If you're not going to take your console or PC apart, piece by piece, this set will do everything you need it do. In the end, I couldn't be happier with the result. My 360 is cleaner, runs faster, and is as quiet as it was when I first brought it home from the store.

Falcon's Dust-Off Gaming Gear Cleaning Kit runs $15.99 and you can buy direct from their website.
