Gamers are obviously invested in gaming on high-end displays with great response times, but apparently playing on a bigger screen is also the way to go. The company introduces their new gaming product called Project Ariana. Intimate, Painterly Photographs of London Bus Passengers On Their Nighttime Commute Photographer Nick Turpin‘s series Through a Glass Darkly takes a different approach to candid street photography than we typically see.

TitanIM - The Future of Simulation TitanIM is capable of recreating planetwide environments from ocean floors to Earth’s orbit at equally high fidelity for any point between. Using the powerful Outerra rendering engine, blades of grass and dirt roads are as eye-pleasing as in any major video game, yet the view from 50,000 feet altitude is suitable for a high-end simulator. Air, Land, Sea and Space are not separate concepts in TitanIM; they are an uninterrupted continuum, and TitanIM is equally capable of operating anywhere in that scale – or in all domains at once. TitanIM also embraces the concept of Scalable Users. Not everyone has the same goals or interests or skills in how they approach TitanIM. One user may want to create a simple scenario to quickly test a concept within a few minutes, another may want to author and deliver a complex solution to a need, and another may create a complete self-contained game, simulation or application using TitanIM as a starting platform.

One reason of course is the challenge. Games always had been the killer applications for each computer generation, especially within the personal computer domain. This was true with the very first systems and still is one of the most important driver for the development of faster personal computer systems.
Ludum Dare For this mini-LD challenge, I decided to try to create a game for the original 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). This was the first game console that I ever owned as a kid, so creating a game for it was something that I had always wanted to do. Unfortunately, to create an NES game, everything has to be written in assembly. When I was at Georgia Tech working on my computer science undergraduate degree, I did have one project where I had to write assembly code for an emulated MIPS system.

It was, without a doubt, one of the most requested types of Lego Computer – a Lego machine that could play any game without missing a beat. Geeks loved the idea of a Lego Computer, so combining that with their love of gaming was only natural. When I started development on the Lego Gaming Computer, I decided to design the system from scratch to create a unique gaming system unlike any other on the market.
