Plot Synopsis:

The story is brought to life by a cast that includes Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.

I've known for a while that late night talk show host Jay Leno is a bit of a car fanatic but I didn't know that he had a web series where he gets to play around with fancy cars, and today I came across the latest episode where he gets to put the Tumbler from Chris Nolan's Batman movies through its paces (Top Gear what are you waiting for!!).

I don't even know what that thing up there is!

I mean, it supposed to be a game controller but just look at it! I guess nobody can claim that their design was copied in the creation of this beauty.


So, while doing my thing on the interwebs, I came across this interesting infographic on the state of the internet around the world. Yeah, its dated 2011 but it still paints a pretty accurate picture of where things stand even in 2013.


If you watched the first season of the web series Mortal Kombat Legacy that debuted in 2011 then you will agree that it did an excellent job with the Mortal Kombat material. Well now the second season is out on Machinima's YouTube page, all episodes, all free!! 

So many yays!!


Seems like every major gaming franchise is looking to get a movie adaptation, even the ones that don't really make sense. Do we really need a Need for Speed movie? I don't think so but then, what does my opinion matter to the bigwigs at EA who have decided to partner with Dreamworks for this movie venture.

After teasing the world for over a week with its countdown website, Valve today unveiled its Steam OS, a linux based operating system which builds on its Big Picture user interface that it launched last year. With the focus being offering a complete entertainment experience for the living room, Steam OS will cover four major areas: In-home game streaming which will allow you stream games over your home network from your existing PC/Mac to your Steam OS machine in your living room; Music, TV, Movies which will be delivered through partnerships with popular media services (no word yet on confirmed media partners); Family Sharing which will allow your family and friends have access to your personal library of Steam games; and Family options which will allow you to manage who can access what. 

Though they haven't announced a release date (website says downloadable soon), they have confirmed that it will be free, which is pretty exciting. Since it is based on Linux, I can definitely see this running on a cheap barebones HTPC which sits with my TV and soundsystem, and streaming content from a more powerful laptop over my home wi-fi connection to it. 

Interestingly, after the countdown ended on the Steam website, another one started counting down and is due to run out in 2 days. Probably another revelation about Steam in the living room from Valve. I still have hope that a Steambox will be announced. Then the battle for the living room space can really begin, what with the PS4 and Xbox One due to launch before the end of the year, and other smaller competitors like the Ouya, Sony's PS Vita TV, and the Apple TV, among others.

Soo Exciting!!!

Right on schedule, Microsoft announced the updated versions of its two tablets, the Surface Pro 2 and the Surface 2 which replaces the Surface RT. they both come with the usual improvements, better battery life, stronger processors, higher res- screens, improved cameras and all that jazz. Even the Touch and Type Covers received improvements with slimmer, back-lit designs and a new battery cover that adds a couple of hours battery life to the tablets. You can read more about them on the Surface website.


All of this was no more than was expected from Microsoft but my main interest was in the Surface Pro 2 and its graphical capabilities.
The yearly iPhone event has come and gone and due to the amount of leaks available that were available on the internet before the actual event, it seems there were really no major surprises. Just a few medium sized ones.
