…Team Fortress should include more girls?

Select A Class

What would the Team look like if they invaded the Fortress with a little more femin and a little less mascul at the beginning of their ine?

Deviant Artist *ghostfire’s rendition is probably a pretty good guess…

    Dear god, I don’t think I want to open this file up again for at least a month. Each individual character was done so I could print them at 11×14 inches, so when combined into one, the file bloated to over half a gigabyte! I started this over a month and a half ago, and it’s eaten up an unfair amount of time.

Despite the improved visuals, I’m guessing that if these characters took over, people would start playing the game for all the wrong reasons.

…iPhone Apps = Apple Games?

iPhone Doom

Food for thought: Despite the fervor surrounding Apple’s announcement today, and the thousands of rumors that have surfaced as a result, the biggest change to the iPhone is going to be an already announced feature: Apps.

Many of these apps are going to be games, and so far, it looks like many of the major game manufactures are on-board and developing for the new platform, which got me thinking; could these partnerships develop into full gaming support for Apple’s full-sized computers as well?

Gaming has long been a missing aspect of the Mac experience, but a few key converts could change all that, meaning the iPhone Apps could be a door for Apple to use to enter the lucrative gaming market that it needs if it’s going to continue its growth and market share acquisition.

Makes you wonder…

…ColorWare lets you customize your guitar?

Guitar Hero

Sure, getting your console colored is all fine and dandy, but if you really want to make an impression at your next gaming get together, pulling out a customized ColorWare Guitar Hero Gibson is definitely one way of doing it.

The company that normally specializes in consoles has taken its talents and applied them to the guitar, and the results are surprisingly good looking.

Everything from the body and the neck to the strum bar and buttons can be customized, so you can rock out in your color scheme of choice.

I just want to paint it black…
