Due to its higher price, I never owned a NEOGEO home system. I recall wanting one desperately, but my parents raised me on teachers’ salaries, and a NEOGEO simply wasn’t in the cards. That’s not to say I never experienced it, however. From the arcades to my friend’s house, I experienced the full range of NEOGEO goodness in the early days of the 1990s. In the arcades, the NEOGEO machine was always on my list of cabinets to hit before my supply of quarters was depleted, and it always had a game for me. Now, the NEOGEO experience is returning to the living room at a time when I actually can afford it in the form of the NEOGEO X GOLD Entertainment System. Read the full story
A new wireless PC/Mac headset has made its way to market, thanks to CompuExpert and its TekNmotion Airhead 1000 wireless headset. Winner of the 2011 RedDot Design Award, the Airhead 1000 looks like a clean headset for enjoying media, gaming, and music on a PC platform.

I can only hope against hope that those future-people will be excellent to each other, in much the same way that the Calibur11 Mass Effect 3 Collector’s Edition Vault looks to be shaping up into a very nice package (that’s what she said).

If you are a PC gamer, you probably live on Steam. Valve’s little engine that could has made PC gaming more affordable and overwhelming than ever. I am almost exclusively a PC gamer and as I look at my Steam library I am overwhelmed by the amount of content I own. Steam offers constant sales on games, especially around holidays, and those of us that are always on the go can miss these sales. Now, Steam’s mobile app for smart phones has made its way out of its fledgling beta and into full release. You can chat with friends, browse sales and the full catalog and edit your wish list. Now, on lunch at work, you can blow 50 bucks on a game and have it waiting for you when you get home. It may not be perfect yet, but it seems this is a must have app for PC gamers.

Everyone grows up; this is how the world works. Just because we grow decrepit and old, however, does not mean we have to forsake the things that make us happy, childish though they may seem. This is the core concept of Marooners’ Rock; we geek out on the things of our past, present, and future. Society and cultural norms be damned!
