This game looks good. It looks like it has some depth, variety and I'm actually looking forward to it! It might be a great filler until Mass Effect 4.

I'll be back after a finish a book.

The world may be over, but we can still read! Whether it's a nuclear holocaust, a contagion outbreak, or a zombie apocalypse, the world isn't going to last forever... until then, you can read about all the possibilities right here!

Microsoft Releases WIndows 10 B10041 to ISO

The most recent build of Windows 10 available for testers is Technical Preview build 10041. Not only can you get this through Windows Update on you PC, you can now download this ISO directly from Microsoft. This shows that Microsoft is pretty happy with the build stability and hopefully it fixes a lot of issues we saw at VulcLAN earlier this month. Take a look and update you system as this rolled up in the "Slow Ring" and should be rock-solid.

Microsoft promised that it would release the ISO files for its latest build alongside its Slow ring deployment - and the firm has now made good on that promise. The ISOs for build 10041 - which Microsoft is also calling its 'March Update' for the Technical Preview - are available to download right now from the Windows Insider Program site.

Lian Li @ CES 2013

Lian Li was at CES once again this year and they brought a few interesting chassis to the show.  By interesting, I mean a beast, a thermal guru and a train.  Let's start with the beast.  The PC-D8000.  This case supposts the largest motherboards possible and complies to the HPTX standard.  Even with a motherboard as large as 15" x 13.6", you still will have room for 20 (that's right, twenty) 3.5" HDDs.  In addition to that, it has four USB 3.0 ports on the front and all of the other awesome features we've come to expect from the all-aluminum case manufacturer, Lian Li.

PC-D8000 Big Front


The PC-V850 is a case that is coming in the near future (hopefully) and it offers the standard Lian Li quality with a bit of a different way to manage thermal issues.  Once the side panel is on, the air intake comes from the rear and the deflector ensures that you are not sucking in hot air from the rear exhaust.  The chassis is sectioned off into several areas that are compartmentalized so that different components don't heat up each other.


The last and oddest thing that we've seen from Lian Li is the train PC case.  We've seen some pretty odd cases, that included sea shells, horses and a yeti, but we've never seen a moving train PC.  There is not much else to be said about this.
