Capcom gives the world a Valentine’s Day gift in the form of the final character listing for Street Fighter X Tekken.
Then I knew Jin, Bison, and the red head would show up to the party. Though Ogre is kind of an odd choice. Roger Jr is a character that deserves to bash Ryu in the undercarriage.
When people think of displays with a resolution of 2560×2048 they might imagine something measuring 30 inches or more, God forbid it be some underwhelming massive screen with an abysmal pixel density such as todays HD TV’s.
MicroOLED has created a 4.5 megapixel display with just such the specifications and it fits right in front of your eye. Its new 0.61 inch display is powered by efficient OLED technology that allows it to create incredibly small pixels to achieve such high pixel density in less than an inch of area. This will allow them to create high resolution color (1280×1024) and black and white (2560×2048) viewfinders and head mounted displays.
The display is being built to meet military requirements and is being developed for medical professionals, for viewfinders in professional camera equipment and for night vision applications.

After six weeks of playing Star Wars The Old Republic
- Over 239 million in-game hours, or over 332,000 months and over 27,000 years of in-game time
- Over 20 billion NPCs killed
- Over 148 billion credits spent
As a supporter of NPC digicide I truly hope for triple the body count in another six weeks
Been craving this game since E3 2011! The wait for Dragon’s Dogma ends May 22nd and packed with a demo of Resident Evil 6. Yes, if you so wish to buy day one, 3 pre-order packs are available. Amazon has the “Weapon Grade Pack” and Best Buy has the “Armor Upgrade Pack” with GameStop offering a “Pawn Upgrade Pack” to Capcom faithful.
Behind-the-Scenes video! Alternate costumes! Rewards for completing weekly challenges! If you are too young to remember how even some PlayStation 2 games had these features; then buying Prototype 2 on launch day is for you! Starting April 27th Radical Entertainment will have a seven week window for players to gain access to RADNET with a purchase of a new copy of Prototype 2. RADNET promises 55 parted out DLC throughout the seven weeks that include friend vs. friend competitive score challenges, to Avatar items. After seven weeks the free RADNET content becomes locked.
Even with this call to action my butt remains pretty firm on the recliner. With a PS2 I can experiences all these features, and Gackt, in Bujingai: The Forsaken City. Heck, it is about $41 on Amazon if anyone wants to feel like paying new-ish prices. A true Hail Mary to quench used game guilt.
Waking up should be a grand act full of coughing and butt scratching.
This morning included a slap to the face from Capcom’s announcement of 5
new characters for Street Fighter X Tekken, but for the Playstation3 and Vita. The character list just adds to the sting.
Kuro/Toro (Sony mascots)
Focusing on which characters matter, the men come to Street Fighter X Tekken in unconventional fighting form. Mega Man is all grown up sporting his original US box art look and proudly strutting a beer gut. Pac Man jumps into the fight riding a wooden robot and shooting out to bash enemies with his ball like body. Sure people who own Sony products have the other two, or three, but who really cares. Cole doesn’t have anime eyes and suffering from girl problems and the cats aren’t drunk. Why would this grand news leave a mark on my face? I own a 360. Microsoft, if you are not going to give me a real Metal Gear to play least at least make Mega “Gut” Man a playable character. Even as DLC, Please?
If looks aren’t what sell you on peripheral devices you may miss out on the new offering of MadCatz CYBORG headsets. If on the other hand their past products and spec sheets are any indication the newly released Primer Wireless Headset for the Xbox360 and its up coming sister product the F.R.E.Q.5 for PC and Mac are sure to please. Both headset are priced at 100$
The Primer features 5.8GHZ wireless technology as well as 40mm neodymium drivers. It has a two tone black and orange color scheme with a removable mic and external volume knobs for the sound and mic separately.
The CYBORG stylized F.R.E.Q.5 also includes “on ear controls” and a removable mic in addition to 50mm stereo drivers. It has both a 3.5mm jack cord and one with a USB connection that can be switched depending on what kind of connection you prefer. The marketing touts the 3.5mm jack as a way to plug in to mobile devices but users of dedicated sound cards on the PC will appreciate this as their hardware natively supports a 3.5mm connection.
The reason I believe the upcoming F.R.E.Q.5 uses 50mm drivers rather than 40mm is due to partly in fact to keeping the price equal for both unites. So in a since you may be sacrificing a bit of sound quality for the luxury of a wireless connection and battery life on the 360 side of things.
According to their release “the F.R.E.Q.5 Pro Gaming Headset for PC, (is) expected to ship Spring 2012. . .” while the Primer should be shipping already. If you don’t feel like waiting you can preorder the F.R.E.Q.5 now.
