  • News: Saved By The Bell Gets a 16-Bit Makeover

    Fine Brothers Productions just laid a golden egg. One part 16-bit videogame complete with a 16-bit era soundtrack, one part classic early 90s sitcom, and three parts create-your-own-adventure, Saved by the Bell Interactive is a grand slam of nostalgia. Playing as Zach, you're given the option to help Jesse balance school and singing (see Jesse's caffeine pill freakout), help turn Screech into a stud so he can get laid Violet won't dump him, or help Kelly deal with the trauma of her dad losing his job. If you're a fan of the show you'll get a kick out of the attention to detail TheFineBros pay to the storylines and plot holes within the actual Saved By The Bell series.

  • News: Quantic Dream's Infraworld Back from the Dead?

    As unearthed by "internet extraordinaire" and all-around web wizard Superannuation, Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream may have a couple of new properties in the works -- one of them quite old. As reported earlier this year, the name "Fiv5" showed up in a both a domain and a European trademark registered by the studio; this second one, "Infraworld," has appeared as a US trademark filed by SCEE. Infraworld, which was a cancelled potential franchise that Quantic Dream had planned to develop alongside Omikron 2/Karma, also appeared briefly as an Easter egg in last year's Heavy Rain, and was rather recently listed on a Quantic Dream employee's LinkedIn profile.

  • News: Here Come the Google Hangout Innovators

    Google Hangouts, the group videoconferencing part of Google+, has attracted some of the most creative minds on the Web – and these folks are putting their ingenuity to good use. One of the first out of the gate is Bruce K. Garber and his friends from the Southern New England Media Makers. They captured this video of their group videoconference by using Camtasia Studio and uploaded this video to Youtube. The sound quality is surprisingly clear considering that they were using the condenser mics built into their webcams. I'm wondering how clear their audio would sound if they each used a USB microphone, such as a USB Logitech headset or a Snowball microphone. Here are the other participants in this video chat.
