Yes you read correctly folks, Mortal Kombat: Armaggedon has an extra game that is like Mario Kart on crack. It’s one of my favorite features of the game, it allows kids to play without a “lot” of gore. There is still some gore in this mini-game but it is done in a humorous way… someone splats into a wall you see 2 seconds of blood and a big “Fatality” comes up in red letters.
The rest of the game is MK at it’s finest, of course it will still upset the anti-violence crowd but that is a given… The Mortal Kombat series started the anti-violence groups! The game itself though is rock solid. Online play for the bawl drinking multi-players and great single player experience in “Konquest” adventure mode for you Single passionate gamers. Let’s not forget create a fighter which lets you take a fighter and design it from the ground up. You unlock more options as you play Konquest mode by either finding new objects or getting enough MK cash to buy new stuff. I made a hot ninja chick because I’d rather spend all day looking at a hot girl than looking at some scary guy!
People who play games aren’t really “gamers” until they meet the following requirements,
1). You must know every stat of your PC, console, or handheld playing device. Click here to read more
2). You must rutinely play multiplayer games in hopes of being one of the best
3). You must use “Voice over IP” programs when playing multiplayer
4). You must know all the modern taunts like calling people “N00Bs” after a headshot
5). You must know the best players in the game, so you can challenge them, even if you lose you learn!

In 1997 I predicted it, dreamed about it and anticipated the day when virtual reality would be a real-time experience. Oh it was already happening then but not on a mainstream level. In 2006 and beyond virtual reality is umâ€¦ a reality. I am not talking about video games I am talking about real human interaction with other real humans in a virtual environment. (Sit back boys and girlsâ€¦I feel this post is going to be long)
Before I can make my point I need to give you some back story. My first experience interacting with real people in a virtual world was on a game server in my office at Netsales Inc (now defunct) Yep it was always Sales (my department) against the Techs and boy did I think my handle was cool â€œKillerSalesmanâ€ Halflife was the game and we were so happy that we had access to a fast pipe (in 1999 cable Internet was still not common though growing by leaps and bounds) and working for a technology company had its perks. T1 access, a fast computer and loads of Mountain Dew!
This is a review of the Samsung SyncMaster 205BW 20″ Widescreen LCD Monitor. I recently had about 20 of these monitors purchased for my offices, and thought I would write a review. Keep in mind my ‘offices’ are out here in Fallujah, Iraq and the conditions are far from favorable. I haven’t had much time playing with them, but have had ample time setting them up, installing, and adjusting them.
While my purchase was work related, this is an awesome monitor for anyone looking to upgrade to a larger monitor, adding a second monitor or creating a multiple monitor setup. Especially for only $239.00 (w/ rebates) right now at TigerDirect, you can’t go wrong!

- What are computers?
- Types of computers
- What can you do with computers?
Are you new to computers? Do you wonder what they do and why you would want to use one? Welcomeâ€”you’re in the right place. This article gives an overview of computers: what they are, the different types, and what you can do with them.
What are computers?
Computers are machines that perform tasks or calculations according to a set of instructions, or programs. The first fully electronic computers, introduced in the 1940s, were huge machines that required teams of people to operate. Compared to those early machines, today’s computers are amazing. Not only are they thousands of times faster, they can fit on your desk, in your lap, or even in your pocket.
Computers work through an interaction of hardware and software. Hardware refers to the parts of a computer that you can see and touch, including the case and everything inside it. The most important piece of hardware is a tiny rectangular chip inside your computer called the central processing unit (CPU), or microprocessor. It’s the “brain” of your computerâ€”the part that translates instructions and performs calculations. Hardware items such as your monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, and other components are often called hardware devices, or devices.
Software refers to the instructions, or programs, that tell the hardware what to do. A word processing program that you can use to write letters on your computer is a type of software. The operating system (OS) is software that manages your computer and the devices connected to it. Two well-known operating systems are Windows and Mac OS. Your computer uses the Windows operating system.
