Despite the fact that most of what was in the video still hasn’t come to reality, Corning apparently isn’t one to stand still. Just under a year after A Day of Glass was released, Corning released A Day of Glass 2.read more
The predictable and highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster Final Fantasy XIII, is close to release. Only a couple of days ago did Square Enix release a prerelease demo for XIII-2, so I decided to kill some hours and have a try at it.
The new game comes out with a mountain of goodies depending on what edition you buy, if you pre-ordered the game and where you are in the world. These range from: a four disc soundtrack, a concept art collection, a one-disc soundtrack, six postcards, replica large-print art of Lightning, a t-shirt, lithograph cards, a novella, and the game itself.
The game (since its release in Japan) has also come with a DLC schedule, including a Colosseum which will let players battle through certain enemies and possible some colosseum-exclusive ones, more monster allies to fight by your side and more outfits for the main characters. From other news reports, it is likely to be a monthly release of content.read more
If you’ve been paying attention to my writing, you know that I’m a Firefox fan. I have been for years. While that loyalty was strained over the long, long time it took for Firefox 4 to finally be released, since then I feel that I’ve been handsomely rewarded for staying with my browser. Over the past summer and fall, we’ve seen 4 new releases, moving the version number up to 8. While I personally think that more appropriate numbers would have been 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, and 4.4, the name doesn’t change the fact that Firefox has been quickly and steadily improving for the past year, and it shows. It might be too little too late though.read more
So, you had an amazing or scary dream last night and you would like to know more about why that happened right? Well, in the video above Michael talks about why we dream. The video is very interesting and might even be something you already know but it is still a good watch.
He talks about what is going on inside our brains and the scientific study behind it called Oneirology. There really is not that much information about dreams because dreams are hard to measure, it isn’t something we can tangibly feel. Watch the video and let us know what you think in the comments.read more
