Ever wondered what some of the peeps at Bungie have as their gaming setups? Check out this page for some pics along with specs. Good stuff!

Really, that is the question. What is this Origami thing? The source code of says it’s a “Mobile PC running Windows XP” but, come on… I want to know the mobile gaming implications of this bad boy. I fired off a few questions and this is all I got back.

Is anyone else’s list of anticipated upcoming games just ridiculous? I wish I had enough cash to get all the games I want, but, alas, that’s not going to happen. I guess, on the immediate horizon, GRAW is my number one. I do plan on trading a couple games in to GameStop today and picking up Black. Hearing mixed things about it, but I’m a sucker for all action, no story-type games. What’s on your list of games you just can’t wait to get? Let us know in the comments.

Upcoming reviews? 24: The Game and the Saitek Red Eclipse keyboard. Also, as more games come out (seeing as how we’re getting closer to E3) we’ll be pumping more reviews out then as well. We’ve also got a couple Q&A’s lined up, but I don’t want to divulge those as I’m not sure when they’ll be in.

If I don’t chat at ya’, have a great weekend.

My first official blog post here at our temporary home. Just in case you’re one of the publishers or developers we work with, snooping around trying to find out what’s going on, here’s the scoop:

We’re getting ready to move to new hosting and get our new CMS installed (which will be based on WordPress) so, in the interim, we’ve simply grabbed some temp hosting here at Over the coming days our old review database will be imported into this one (we’ve got goods dating back to 2002!) so all of our articles should be online within a week. We’ll then start focusing on our new direction (check out the About Us link for more details) but we’ll keep posting up product reviews as we always have, so no worries there.

We’ve got some talented people working behind the scenes (and in front of the scenes as well, if that’s how it’s put), so I’m looking forward to moving onward and upward. As always, should you wish to contact us, feel free to do so by heading over to our contact page.

So, what’s on the immediate horizon for us? A couple Q&A’s and a review of the Saitek Red Eclipse keyboard (which I’m using right now to type this up; I know you were dying to know that). Stick around, things are just about to get interesting.

(I use parentheses alot, don’t I?)

Welcome to the new Gamingnext

So, what does it all mean? Where are we going? Is it necessary to look at where we’ve been?

To all of those questions… maybe. :) The new Gamingnext will still have game reviews, so that funky fresh, slightly acidic style you’ve come to know and love will still be here. But, our main focus will shift to upcoming game releases, new tech, new gadgets, new peripherals, and the like.

Thanks for stopping by. We’ve ripped your ticket. Hop on the roller coaster please… we’re about to take a ride.
