Motoped Survival: Black Ops edition – a fully functional zombie hunting moped

By - November 12, 2014 45 Pictures
The Motoped Black Ops is a shameless, shallow grab for attention that has 100 percent done its job on me. A zombie hunting moped? Seriously? But the product behind it is actually pretty sweet. A highly customizable moped with a 500-mile (805 km) range, 200 mpg (1.2 L/100km) efficiency and heavy-duty engineering. It easily converts to an ultralight dirtbike if you swap the 49cc stock engine for something larger, and its long travel suspension should make it pretty capable on dirt tracks. Read More

No wires, no gamepads, no treadmills. Read More

By - December 4, 2013 14 Pictures

Game Review: Dead Space 3

By - March 17, 2013 6 Pictures
The first Dead Space game was something pretty special. Its setting of a deserted spaceship infested with seemingly endless hordes of "necromorph" human/alien mutations pushed the boundaries when it came to evoking a sense of isolation and foreboding, interspersed with periods of outright terror. The game was successful enough to warrant a fully fledged sequel along with numerous related titles. We join Isaac Clarke in his latest outing in Dead Space 3. We looked at the game on Xbox 360.
