Disney Epic Mickey

Developer: Junction Point
Systems it’s available on: Wii

I played Disney Epic Mickey as destructively and maliciously as I could. I don’t know why I did it. Maybe it’s because I was always more of a Donald Duck fan. …

XWave iPhone Headset Promises to Read Your Mind

The $100 XWave headset plugs into the headphone jack of any iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and claims to measure your Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma and Theta brainwaves. I have no way of proving or disproving these claims, though I can tell you that it certainly does something while you use it.

The headset features a metal sensor that touches …

NBA Jam Review: Slightly New Look, Same Classic Game

Did you love NBA Jam as a kid? You’ll love this one, plain and simple. The team at EA has done a great job of rebottling the original formula. Aside from some slightly updated graphics and a few new games modes, the physics-defying basketball brouhaha plays just like you remember it.

New game modes include online multiplayer, Boss …

Samsung Galaxy Tab Review: Best 7-inch Tablet, But It’s Pricey

Samsung’s 7-inch Galaxy Tab Android tablet is not an iPad killer. Nothing needs to die, as far as gadgets are concerned, and the iPad and Galaxy Tab aren’t really even in the same category.

The Galaxy Tab is a very portable tablet, which is one of its selling points over the iPad. If you’re dead set on having it with you at all …

Here’s where I’m coming from with these music rhythm games: I found myself in several bands throughout high school and college—band bands, not “Where’s my sheet music?! I lost my reed!” …

Logitech Revue with Google TV Review: A Bridge to the Future

I’m bullish on Google TV. Bullish. Well, bullish on the concept of Google TV and how it integrates with the current way most people consume television and the way we’ll all consume television in the future. Whether Google TV as a platform ultimately succeeds or fails doesn’t matter as much as the method with which Google has fused TV …

Samsung Focus With Windows Phone 7 Review: Make Room For Microsoft

Some people will never give up their iPhones. Or their Android phones. Or their BlackBerry phones. Or whatever. Windows Phone 7 will appeal to those people as much as any other platform that competes with the one they love.

Those people constitute a tiny sliver of fiercely loyal customers, though. For anyone else either …

Let Me In Review: A Requiem For the Bloodsuckers

You’ve either seen Let the Right One In or you haven’t; either way, I’m betting you’ll love Let Me In, the uber-faithful, yet subtly distinctive, U.S. remake. I first saw clips of the movie at Comic-Con where director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) was clearly worried about alleviating concerns that he had taken a subtle, evocative …
