The Logitech Harmony 520 universal remote is just one of the offerings from this leader in the electronics industry. Universal remotes have been around for a long time, but the features on this remote are what sets it apart from your typical remote. This remote is fully programmable, and will do most of the thinking for you when you are using it. The whole goal of the remote is to allow you to switch easily between components without having to use separate remotes or having to get up to turn on the different electronics. It is meant to be used by any member of your household, even the kids or a babysitter.
The Harmony 520 can control up to 12 different components. This means you can hook up your video gaming systems, DVD player, VCR., TV, and surround sound system. It will even allow you to hook up other household items, like the lighting in your home. While this may seem like it might be confusing, you can plug the remote into your computer to set everything up on line, or you can use Logitech’s online tech assistance to get everything working for you.
The great thing about this remote is that it allows anyone to figure out how to use those tricky electronic components with ease. After everything is set up each of your components will work with the touch of a button. You won’t have to worry about changing lines and channels when switching from TV to DVD like before. The remote has an easy-to-read LCD screen that walks you through every step.
One issue that the Harmony remote does have is that batteries do not last as long as they do in traditional remotes. This is primarily due to the LCD screen on the remote, and is pretty forgivable considering all of the benefits of the remote. Using rechargeable batteries will help you cut down on costs associated with this.
The remote comes with software for set up that is fully compatible with Windows and Mac, a USB cord, batteries, and your owners manual. The Harmony 520 universal remote can be found at retailers like Sears, Best Buy, and Wal Mart. They can also be found online at Tigerdirect.com. Tigerdirect.com offers the remote in both new and refurbished conditions. The refurbished remotes can be purchased for about half of the manufacturer’s retail price. Regular price for the remote is around $100.00.

Tethering is using your smartphone as a modem to get data to your personal computer. If you happen to love the Blackberry, and run a Linux box (or a Mac), there are ways to tether in Linux.
The first way is with a freeware (although donations are accepted) product called berry4all. I mention berry4all because it does work. It’s tricky and kind of geeky to set up, but it works as advertised. Also, if you want to practice tweaking your Linux box, this is the way to go. And it does require tweaking; berry4all is made for all mobile providers equally, and you can either modify an existing script from the website (www.berry4all.com) or write one from scratch for your mobile carrier.
The point of berry4all is twofold: it allows you to tether in Linux or Mac, which Research in Motion most definitely does not support, and it allows you to do it plugged into a USB port. Berry4all is the middleware between dial up networking and the proprietary Blackberry modem mode. I have set it up in OpenSuse and Fedora Linux and both work just fine, but be prepared to spend time tweakin’ and readin’ and readin’ and tweakin’.
Recently I found a better way. For another purpose entirely, I acquired Bluetooth dongles for a Fedora Linux tower and Ubuntu laptop. These were no name, Chinese, swap meet quality, dollar-fifty Bluetooth dongles of no technological significance whatsoever — they do not even show a name in the system specs of the computer, but Linux sees them just fine.
With Bluetooth dongle installed, pair the Berry to the Linux box. This is fairly intuitive in today’s Linux assuming that you have ever paired two Bluetooth devices. Next go to Network Manager (or the equivalent for your GUI and distro). You’ve possibly never been here before: Linux found your Ethernet when it installed, and you never looked for more connection options. But there are more: There are VPN, DSL and Mobile connection options; you want Mobile connection, of course.
To create the Mobile connection, you will need the sign in information (if any) from your mobile provider. Even if you are not going to use berry4all, the website is a good resource for this information. Enter the required information for a dial up connection in the Mobile connection fields. In the Blackberry itself, go to Options gt; Bluetooth and make sure that the pairing connection to your Linux box has the modem option enabled. By the way, you specifically do not want to plug the Blackberry into the USB for a Bluetooth modem connection.
Connect with the new Mobile connection you created and you’re online. The entire setup takes about two minutes, is actually easier to create and use than using Blackberry Desktop Manager in Windows, and it has the side effect of giving you a cool unwired Mission: Impossible look when you tether. But don’t blame me if you walk away with your laptop and forget the Berry.
There are many retro gaming systems available right now. Some of these systems play only one kind of game, some play up to three kinds of games, and some are portable As many people are aware of China made products can be very cheap quality and most of these systems are made in China. Some of the systems work fine but some do not even work. This means you will want to learn how the system compare before you buy one. The FC-16 Go Portable SNES System is one example of these retro systems. If you want to know how the FC-16 Go Portable SNES System stacks up against the other retro systems then you should keep reading.
Obviously as the name suggest the FC-16 Go Portable SNES System plays SNES games and is portable. The FC-16 has the many of the same disadvantages as other portable systems. Some disadvantages are unique to the FC-16. However the FC-16 does make some improvements over other portable retro systems.
The FC-16 hides the games inside the system instead of having a big ugly cartridge sticking out of the top. The FC-16 also has a fairly large screen and pretty good speakers for a portable device. The buttons on the machine are in an awkward location and playing it on the go can be a bit odd. The console burns batteries faster then most because of the large screen and bigger speakers. Portability is more limited then ever on this machine.
The FC-16 can be played on a TV and with the wireless controllers that come with it. Like most retro systems with wireless controllers the controllers are not very good and may break easily. If the controllers do not work this is a major problem because there are no ports for original controllers. So you can spend $50-70 depending where you bought it for a system that is useless.
The one good thing about this machine is that it does play well. All most all SNES games will play on the machine. The emulation is good. The sound is good for a portable system or when used with the TV. If it did not have the problem of bad controllers breaking it would be a decent SNES system when plugged into the TV.
Unfortunately because of the poor build of the controllers the system may easily become useless. Many retro systems have poor quality controllers but they also allow for original controllers too. Having no option if the controllers fail is a big problem especially with controllers that are likely to fail. The system is also very expensive for what you get. This is a system I would not recommend.
There are lots of different sports games franchises, mostly from EA and 2K but also some notable ones from Sony. You know, there’s the Madden, the NBA 2K, Tiger Woods, MLB, Hot Shots Golf, etc. As far as these games go, the status quo is that the sequels are released yearly and featuring tweaks and improvements here and there and roster updates, they’re released at full retail price. This is how sports games have been released from the beginning and that’s how it’s going down to this day.
Many people hate this and cannot understand how gamers can keep on buying the same game year after year and at full price. And why is it that with so many iterations, these sports games always have some problems like bugs or bad design or glitches?
I can understand these criticisms and often times I agree with the people who hate sports games and how they’re released like this. NHL 09 many would argue ain’t that different from NHL 08 and yet NHL 09 this year costs the same as games like Dead Space, Gears of War 2, LittleBigPlanet, etc. By common sense, this just seems wrong.
But many don’t really know the full story of why it works like this. The sports game developers almost always new experimental ideas in new games. Sometimes, such experimentation results in glitchy and buggy releases of poor execution. This is also because they have such a tight deadline. As soon as they release this year’s iteration, they are immediately taken to the drawing boards for the next iteration and by a month or two months’ time, they’re programming the next year’s release. Improving the graphics in such a tight timeframe is a tough obstacle as well. Yet, ask any gamer that’s played every iteration of a certain sports franchise and he’ll tell you how each iteration is different. Whether or not those differences resulted in good games is the most important question and usually, since the developers are so tight on schedule, the execution isn’t pretty. But there are times when it works and a lot of improvement and new ideas show up in a new iteration and such great execution wouldn’t have occurred if the iteration was just released any other way.
SPORTS GAMES AS DIGITAL DOWNLOADS?
But even so, to many gamers, it seems that it would be best for consumers if the new iterations just was released as updates in the form of digital download. If the new iteration isn’t going to change much of the game anyway except for a few tweaks and a roster update, why not just release an yearly downloadable update to that game? I’ve heard many people argue for this kind of release style. After all, this style will definitely save a lot of money for sports fans and also will encourage gamers to keep updating their sports games.
It sounds really good in concept but I personally don’t fully support this idea. Like I said, every yearly release of a sports game introduces a new concept (e.g. Madden 09 has the Madden IQ, Tiger Woods 09 has the new coach mode) and sometimes graphics and animations get a major overhaul (as was the case with MLB 08: The Show) and such things won’t happen if sports games are just updated every year via downloadable content. Of course, many of the times, these new concepts and graphics upgrade end up problematic but there’s always a good possibility that it’ll end up great, as was the case – according to the reviews I’ve read – of NHL 09.
To put it simply, making sports games be released as downloads stagnates the genre more than ever before because innovations and major overhauls would be discouraged. The good thing about this kind of distribution would be that it would definitely be cheaper for consumers and ensure solid quality sports gaming everywhere but the bad thing is that it will stay the same for who knows how long.
BUT COME ON, THE STATUS QUO SUCKS!
Yes, yes it does. Paying fully retail price for yearly updates that may be buggy, glitchy, poorly executed, and/or be barely changed from the previous iteration is not a good option for consumers at all. Surely, there must be a solution for this.
AND HERE’S MY PROPOSITION
Release each iteration at half the full retail price (meaning $30 in America for the PS3/360). And then some time after the release (probably after 6 months or so), release the roster upgrade and minor tweaks/improvements in the form of digital download for a reasonable price ($20?). After that, release another hard copy iteration of the series with major overhaul and new experimental concepts. Keep releasing it like this.
Yes, it’s a pretty crazy and revolutionary proposition and developers and publishers will definitely look at that and shake their heads. Release their games at half the price and then make it up with digital download update a few months later? Why would they want to do that?
Here are my reasons: First, it would bolster the sales. People will look at the cheap price and be encouraged to buy it. There will be many units of the games sold. Next, when people find problems with the games, they can always be guaranteed that issues will be fixed and improved with a follow-up digital download update, which costs even less. This not only bolsters the sales of the game, but also means that gamers will be more likely to buy the next iteration when it releases since any problem it’ll have will be addressed via digital download update. What I’m proposing here is a way to release sports games that’s both good for consumers and the developers’/publishers’ wallets.
I have a feeling that this will most likely never happen but what do you guys think? Isn’t my proposition pretty sound? And please, if you find any part of that proposition too problematic, feel free to comment on it. I know this was a long blog, but I hope it was an interesting read.
Company of Heroes is a well balanced game with the Allies having great units and the Axis having some of the toughest tanks pre-Opposing Fronts (The expansion to CoH). Each side has three different Armed Branches or Doctrines which allow you to access diverse powerups, troops and bonuses, like the American Airbourne Branch get Paratroopers which will basically destroy anything, and the German propaganda branch gives access to abilities that send the enemy troops literally running.
However, when I play CoH I just get the feeling that it is just a skinned version of Dawn of War (Relic’s previous game), because Company of Heroes has just expanded upon that game and not really introduced enough new content.
The graphics in CoH is simply superb, with cities rendered well even if the graphics are set to lowest. This is also true for the units, as you can see the mud on the front of the tanks and the pistols on the soldiers’ hips.
But this is all well and good if you have a new computer; unfortunately it does not run too well on lower spec computers as I have experienced on one of my computers :(.
The voice acting for the units is excellent and makes the game feel so much more believable, as you hear the troops yelling context-based dialogue such as “Fuck, they got us pinned down”, or “We’re really getting beaten up by that Panzer!”.
The levels are based upon the Western front of World War 2 and have had a lot of time poured into their creation. In my opinion, the factory and urban based maps are better than the country side ones, but thats probably because I am a defensive player and prefer to limit the ways the enemy can attack me.
The replay ability of CoH is awesome, as maps offer many different ways to win and the different branches of each side can really add the random factor into games that many games are missing (Warcraft III for example). Playing online is also a great way to expand the replay ability of CoH as everybody online has a different tactic to crush you into the dust 😛
Overall game score:8.6
Company of Heroes = Totally Awesome

This is also one of the reasons why PlayStations and X-Boxes had become famous. And having the financial power to buy for yourself these big gaming consoles that are not portable was a matter of pride. But things have changed lately.

Recently we got the chance to talk with the folks at Sega about Space Siege. I want to thank Denny for making the interview happen.
GVK: What is the background and setting for the game?
Space Siege is an action/role-playing game from Gas Powered Games. Set in the future, it starts with an alien invasion of Earth. The aliens successfully destroy the planet, but a few colony ships manage to escape. The player’s character, Seth Walker, is onboard the Armstrong, and it serves as the setting for the game. Unfortunately, the aliens-called the Kerak-are able to attach a pod to the ship, so the first task is to get rid of the invading aliens.
GVK: What are some of the units featured and their abilities and can you talk about the ability to customize your character and the repercussions that this can have in game?
There are a number of enemies in Space Siege, from different types of the Kerak to some surprise enemies.
While you can’t change your character’s general appearance, you can upgrade your visual look by acquiring different armor and weapon upgrades. The game’s biggest customization option is choosing whether or not to install various cybernetic upgrades. This choice forces you to decide how much you’re willing to sacrifice your own humanity in order to save humanity. The choices you make affect your character’s stats and give you different “pure” or “cyber” abilities.
GVK: What can you tell us about the A.I. players in the game and how they will interact with the player character?
In the earliest parts of the game, you rescue a number of characters who play important roles as the story develops. You have conversations with these characters throughout the game, as they’re back at a “home base” area trying to research the Kerak and determine what’s going on in other parts of the Armstrong.
GVK: How is resource management handled and will players be able to trade and salvage?
Players can find cybernetic pieces and weapons in the environment, and creatures drop “parts,” which can be used to upgrade your character at workbenches.
GVK: What can you tell the readers about how the Robot Sidekicks will be used in game?
Seth’s robotic companion is a Hodgsons Robotics Unit Mark V; “HR-V” for short. HR-V can be customized to use different weapons the player can find in the game. Proper use of HR-V is vital to a player’s eventual success.
GVK: What sort of weapons will players be able to use and how is combat handled in the game?
Combat uses a point-and-click interface; select your target, and fire away. There are a half-dozen weapons in the game, and each can be upgraded to add additional damage.
GVK: How will players save their progress in game?
The game auto-saves every time a player uses one of the health stations, which are liberally placed on each level, but players are free to save their progress at any point of the game.
GVK: What forms of Multiplay will the game offer?
The game has one multiplayer mode, which consists of a unique set of co-operative missions for 2-4 players that are set on a different ship. You create a multiplayer character that can be saved for future multiplayer games, with all of your upgrades and “parts” intact.
