That because they're "big" in the gaming community (some streamer, influencer, play lots of games, been playing games since they were in the womb, or spent millions of dollars on fancy stuff that glows with...

    EA Announces Travel Health Benefits in Wake of Roe Decision (June 24, 2022)

    The only bright side of all this turmoil, to be honest, is that it's casting a big spotlight on privacy and how things like your location information are collected, stored, and distributed by third parties because of what's happening and various laws. Location providers like smartphone...

    they are remastering one of my favorite adventure games of all time

    Apparently if you buy the enhanced version from GoG, you get the original version as well. So that might be way to go. Though if you own the original version, you apparently get a 50% off discount on the enhanced edition. Though I can't find the original version on GoG so I don't know if it's...

    Challenge coins

    The big question/concern I would have is legal - I don't presume any of these designs are licensed are they? Some of these properties are owned by big companies with lawyers who may object on various grounds. At the very least, the project might get killed, or it may get all caught up in red...

    CIC 9/11 Update (September 11, 2021)

    It's hard to be introspective given all that's happened these past few years. I'm not an American, but I still remember the day. And yes, it makes me feel old to think that 9/11 happened 20 years ago and I was a young'un just starting my first Real Job(tm). While I don't wish a 9/11 to happen...

    For controllers, there are plenty of options. You can get the official Mega Drive Mini/Genesis Mini USB controller - it's for the Mega Drive Mini or Genesis Mini retro console, but it's USB and works just fine on a PC. There are options for playing Sega CD/Mega CD games - there are Everdrive...

    Halo fan makes 7 foot, 112 pound, UNSC Frigate from 25,000 Legos

    I keep getting excited when I read "Halo fan makes 7 foot..." then get disappointed when I read the rest of the title. I expected it to read "Halo fan makes 7 foot actual size Master Chief statue".
