Mozilla Approves Plans for 64-Bit Firefox on Windows

10/06/2014 - 02:45

If you had a reason, Mozilla has been compiling Firefox Nightly as a 64-bit application for Windows over the last several months. It is not a build that is designed for the general public; in fact, I believe it is basically only available to make sure...

SteelSeries Siberia V3 Headsets Launch

10/01/2014 - 18:31

My last headset was a SteelSeries Siberia V2 and it served me well. The headband was snug, in a good way, against my head and the ear cups were comfortable. Both the headphones and the microphone sounded great from my subjective listening. It died after...

Fan-made 2D Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (PC)

10/01/2014 - 16:32

Hopefully this project will neither become abandoned, like a couple of attempts before it, nor shut down by Nintendo. The Legend of Zelda: OoT2D is an unofficial, fan-made game for the PC that takes the story and design of Ocarina of Time and builds it...

10/01/2014 - 14:17
