Hardware Review – Maingear’s Vybe SS


“Serious PC gamers know it’s worth it to shell out a little more green for a gaming rig with enough power to last them a few solid years between major upgrades, but everyone has their limits.

Coming in at just under $2,000, the Vybe Super Stock is a real workhorse.”

Feature: Minecraft – Digging Deep Into a Curious Realm


Once I started playing Minecraft I was totally hooked. It’s a very cool concept, and players are really taking the engine and running with it creativity-wise. I recently interviewed Notch and put together a massive feature on the game for GameSpy that you can check out over here. I’d blog about it more, but I spilled my guts on the subject pretty thoroughly in the article. Give it a read! Thanks.
