What Will Facebook Look Like with Oculus

Last week Oculus VR was bought by Facebook as Facebook "really gets Virtual Reality" and apparently has some amazing plans for the future of their social network. Chaotic Moon Studios has put together a demonstration of what Facebook will be like with Oculus. Remember, progress is getting less done in more time - so this is really a great interface that will consume more time and keep you logged into their network longer. Good job.

EA has to apologize for Nintendo jokes

Yesterday was April fools and EA thought that announcing Half Life 3 and other Frostbite games for the Wii U as well as declaring the Wii U "the most powerful 4th gen console" would be a funny joke. Well apparently the higher ups at EA didn't find it as funny and now have issued an apology. I guess EA finally realized that maybe they aren't in a place to be making fun of other companies and might have opened up yet another can of worms. Kotaku has the full story.

There are a lot of awful pranks and unfunny jokes out there today, but this one might be the weirdest: the official Twitter account for Frostbite—EA's proprietary video game engine—is acting like a big ol' bully.

See, EA is on the long list of publishers that no longer makes games for Nintendo's Wii U, as their powerful Frostbite 3 engine just won't support it. So the folks behind Frostbite are making jokes... about running it on Wii U.

Android TV

Google TV wasn't as much of a hit as they would have liked, and let's face it - this is a pretty crowded market. With things like Roku, Western Digital's LiveTV, Plex, Boxee, XBMC, Amazon FireTV and a ton of others, this is a market where in order to survive, you have to either have a killer feature, or a killer price. Google is trying again with "Android TV" and you can take a look at what they've been working on below.

Every so often, some enterprising computer company will claim they’ve finally fixed the TV. They’ll talk about how they’ve turned a dumb terminal into a smart computing platform that extends your work and play to a gigantic screen. Then, we’ll watch as the idea flops because they fail to line up content deals or wind up delivering a confusing, haphazard experience. That was the story of Google TV, which became the laughing stock of the industry after Google chairman Eric Schmidt bet that it would ship on the majority of new televisions in 2012. (He was sorely wrong.)

Sennheiser G4ME ONE Gaming Headset Review Online

We have just posted up our review of the Sennheiser G4ME ONE Gaming Headset. This is the followup product to the amazing PC 360, and it is a nice refresh. Sennheiser has released this top-of-the-line model to make every gamer jealous and while it isn't cheap, some things are just worth the price. Take a look at our review and see what has changed and if it is worth scrapping your current headset for the G4ME ONE. All the details are in our full review.

The G4ME ONE is a basic - although high quality - headset from a German-based company that wants to turn heads and make people take notice - not only because of the great sound, but the updated G4ME ONE headset also brings some amazing curb-appeal to the mix as well. That being said for $249, it will have to deliver a solid experience if they want to end up on the gamers short list.

Nintendo's Smash Bros. to Launch on 3DS before Wii U

If you are a veteran Smash Bros. player then you will be ecstatic to hear that the new one is coming out on the 3DS this summer! There is a bit of bad news though; the Wii U version won’t be landing until this winter. This is a bit of a cold blow to those Wii U owners who have been waiting for that new Smash Bros. title.

The new #SmashBros. for #3DS will arrive this summer, while the one for #WiiU is coming in winter 2014.
