EA's Awesome Xbox One Subscription

If you currently own an Xbox One and buy a game or two a month, the new Xbox One subscription service from EA may just be what you're looking for. According to sources, the subscription service is getting better and better as EA has vowed to never remove a game from the library once it has been added. Of course they don't tell you how long "never" is. Still for a decent price, it gives you access to a ton of games that you may not ever play.

“New game additions will be determined by franchise and timing,” Moore said to CVG. “We have to make decisions along that way, so there’s no template, like 30 days after a game ships it goes into the Vault. I think one of the key things is that once a game goes into the Vault it stays there, it’s not going to be taken out, that’s a commitment we’ve made.”

Hyperlapse Video is Awesome

Time-lapse video of a mountain hike, traffic, sunsets and more is always pretty epic, but the downside to many of these videos is that the camera is mounted on the head or equipment and it is not still. Image stabilization has come a long way, but the reality is that when you speed up video, you also speed up the shake and it can be nauseating. Microsoft has been working on this problem and you can see the results demonstrated below.

 

Steam Movies, TV and Music - Coming Soon

I'm not sure how soon the updates are coming to Steam - and knowing government restrictions, it will only roll out in the USA first, but Steam is positioning themselves to start rolling out TV, Movies and Music on their platform. This makes perfect sense for many gamers that enjoy things other than games, but I don't think that there is enough market left for another streaming service. Time will tell who gets this upgrade and how competitive pricing will be. Still, if you want all your content from one place, this may just about do it.

Now that Steam is making its way into the living with the introduction of Steam Machine consoles, it makes sense that Valve would want to bring enhanced functionality to its extremely popular digital store. Game consoles are some of the most popular media streaming devices on the market, so if Valve wants to compete with Microsoft and Sony (along with Apple TV, Roku and other set-top boxes), adding new capabilities to Steam might be a necessity.

Rosewill Rise Glow Full-Tower Chassis

We have just posted up our review of the Rosewill Rise Glow Full-Tower Chassis. This is a very tall case that supports some crazy liquid cooling setups as well as motherboards from mATX all the way up to massive E-ATX boards. If you are planning on building a monster system with multiple large graphics cards and you need room for some incredible cooling setups, the Rise Glow could be the case for you. There are a coupole of things worth noting before you drop your cash so make sure you check out review for all the details.

The Rise Glow is ready to go for some pretty large cooling options as there is room at the top, the front and the rear for a bunch of different radiator and cooling configurations. It is possible to install a 360mm radiator at the front of the case for your CPU or graphics card cooling as well as an additional 140mm radiator at the rear or a 280mm radiator at the top of the case. Rosewill has cut out the extra that a lot of people don't use and instead given us some amazing cooling options.
