Sony working PlayTV 2?

By: Array

Way back in 2008 Sony got a lot of us excited when it started to talk about the PlayTV add on for the PS3. The device let you turn the PS3 in to a DVR and watch over the air programs. The big catch was that the device landed in Europe but never came to the US.

PAC-MAN stays on Google for good

By: Array

A few days ago Google added a PACMAN game to its front page with the Google logo embedded inside the game. It quickly gained rapid recognition and popularity online. Heck, most of the staff here at TweakTown even sat on the Google search page for once not searching, but playing the great game.

Google added PAC-MAN as its logo on the 30th anniversary of the game and due to huge popularity, the search engine giant has decided to keep it up online permanently.

 

Google said in a blog post, "We've been overwhelmed - but not surprised :) - by the success of our 30th anniversary PAC-MAN doodle. Due to popular demand, we're making the game permanently available at http://www.google.com/pacman. "

Samsung Mobile sets world record for largest dodgeball game

By: Array

I think the coaches got a sick thrill out of seeing the smaller kids get pounded by the bigger kids at dodgeball in middle school. It always seemed like someone was aiming for your nads too. Samsung has set a new world record for the largest game of dodgeball ever.

The game was certified by the Guinness World Record people with a game of two teams with 712 players total. The game had 600 dodgeballs in play. I can't imagine the carnage that the initial volley caused, talk about a target rich environment. I bet one throw took out ten geeks.

Lego Pac-Man arcade game plays all sorts of 80's games

By: Array

I was in elementary school in the 80's and we had Lego's in the room for playtime. We often built guns and cars with them and fought over the wheels and little men. The 80's were also the heyday for arcade gaming like Pac-Man.

Some geeks at Big Ben Bricks have put two of my favorite things from the 80's into one device, and it actually works. The contraption is a video game cabinet that is made from Lego blocks and it actually plays 80's arcade games like Donkey Kong.

 

The cabinet has a Jamma 48-1 board inside letting it play all kinds of arcade classics like Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, and more. I doubt it would stand up to an irritated player bashing the buttons.

 

Steam for Mac boils with new games

By: Array

Steam has been around on the PC for a long time now. The service was both loved and hated by many, but the cool factor of being able to download new games was undeniable. Even if it took way longer to download than it would take to drive to the store and buy frequently.
