Joystiq hands-on: Dawn of War 2

We learned a valuable lesson at CES last week: Don't demo an RTS game on a trade show floor. Why? Because it's nigh-impossible to hear a developer's instructions over the deafening noise of geek-outs. It turns into something like this dialogue snippet from our hands-on experience with Warhammer...

CES 2009: Mgestyk hoping you'll chuck your controller

We'd like to fault Mgestyk for their painfully edgy misspelling of a well-known actual word, but as a bunch of guys who spell Joystick with a "q", we're cautious about getting into a pot-kettle situation. Instead we'll talk about Mgestyk, a hands-free controller (or, more accurately, a...

CES 2009: Hands-on with the dreamGEAR WarBeast

There were plenty of fake instruments on display at CES, but none that pulsated with the pure, rock and roll energy of dreamGEAR's WarBeast, modeled after the B.C. Rich axe of the same name.

The SimCraft APEX is just such a device, a simulator designed to give you the sensation of...

Seen @ CES 2009: A man too tough for gadgets

On the way to Microsoft's booth, we encountered a man clearly so tough that he doesn't even need to class up one of the world's largest electronics shows by including shirt sleeves. Just in case that didn't get the point across, the writing on the back of the shirt says it all. This is clearly a...

Seen @ CES 2009: The Lady Fitness Workout Kit

Ladies, how often have you taken a look at your poor little Wii Fit, and thought "If only there were some sort of peripheral to let the world know that I'm both concerned about my fitness aesthetics, and was emblazoned with pink"? Probably so often that you've lost count. As you know, pink is...

CES 2009: Feet-on with the X-Rocker Vibe

There's a magical subset of products one finds at CES, if one looks close enough. We call it the "We probably won't buy these, and we're not sure who will, but we're really glad they're in the universe" class of products. Yeah, we know, not the punchiest name. We're workshopping it. A great...
