Evolve to a multi-tasking PC gamer!

“Quit Playing With Yourself!”

The Evolve client is the almost the ideal social platform for the PC gamer.  It as its name suggests  the next step in the In-game evolution. Combining a social network,  internet browser, instant messaging, an partying system all in and out a PC game with no per game setup.  This social platform is quite stacked from being constructed with the berkelium project so it powered by the magic of  Google’s Chrome.  From the internet browser comes the multi-protocol IM portion of the application allowing you to game while still being connected and chatting with MSN/Windows Live, Goolge Talk, AIM, ICQ, XMPP, and even Facebook chat. This developing application is the conceptual offspring of something similar to Steam and Xbox Live taking the best from booth worlds except any sort of store. Of course this service is free an it supports almost 300 recent popular titles but is still in beta so sign up to try an get in sooner rather than later.

Cyborg RAT7

Hey everyone hope you all had a great Christmas and I would also like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Due to the recent death of my Razor lachesis I had to invest in another mouse. I am normally a Logitech fanboy due to the G5 being the best mouse I have ever touched and my room mate just got another Logitech which he loves. This being said I felt my self drifting back towards Logitech then I happened to come across the RAT 7 made by Saitek. This mouse is crazy. Enough said. The design is something that is very different and will defiantly get a few looks. The mouse is the most customizable mouse I have ever used, coming with interchangeable pinky rests and palm rests

Where you rest your thumb can also be moved forward and back along with rotating left and right.  The palm rest can be slid closer or further back on the body of the mouse to increase personal comfort. This mouse has a 25-5600DPI Range which can be controlled via button behind scroll wheel. All of the other features are things you would find on most other gaming mice aka braided cord, USB 2.0, gold plated USB connector, and weight system. This is the first mouse i have seen with a thumb scroll wheel for left and right scrolling also this mouse has a Precision Aim Mode which slows down the mouse sensitivity when pressed to help with aiming in FPS titles.  Over all this mouse is fantastic and i personally am very happy with it. The RAT7 just won best of 2010 by IGN and is available for around $

YouTube Lifts 15min Time Limit

This past week the popular video site YouTube has removed the 15 minute video lenghth for may of its users.(Including us :))

YouTube has used a system called Content ID to recognize copyrighted material and give the copyright owners the right to block it, track it or make money from ads shown alongside it.

Below is a video we shot about a year ago of The Breakup Season. Originally we had to post multiple videos of each song they played due to the time limit. But now you can watch the entire video in its awesome musical glory.
