…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Knight XV?

Conquest Vehicles Knight XV

The Knight XV from Conquest Vehicles “defines the future of the ultra-luxurious, handcrafted fully armored SUV. This one-of-a-kind, V10, 6.8-litre, Bio-fuel powered SUV was inspired by the Gurkha military vehicle and features security appointments that are unrivaled in today’s SUV marketplace”.

Designed as “an armored vehicle and not a vehicle that has been armored”, the Knight XV is manufactured using military-grade armoring materials, and sits atop a specially modified Ford super duty chassis, making parts and service easily accessible around the globe in case your tank breaks down and needs a tune-up.

The 6.8L V10 runs on E-85 if you feel like giving the environment a break, and is certified as legal in all 50 US states. 400 horsepower and 498 ft. lbs. of torque are produced by the massive engine, but don’t expect 0-60 times to wow you, because all that power is definitely going to be needed when the vehicle weighs in at over 10,000 pounds!

Four wheel drive with locking hubs, a 4.30 ratio limited slip differential, and a 5-speed transmission ensure that you’ll never get stuck when the road gets tough, and 40 gallons of fuel in the tank will ensure that even when the going does get tough, you can just keep on going.

Inside, wool carpeting and leather seating keep the passengers comfy, while TV monitors and a full entertainment system including a PlayStation 3 keep them entertained. Plus, two forward looking infrared radar systems (one mounted front and one rear with separate screens for each) come standard on all Knight XVs sold in North America, so if you need to turn the lights down low, you can still make your way around town in complete darkness without hitting a thing.

All told, the Knight XV takes 1,500 hours to build by hand, and only 100 of them will be made for their ultra rich, ultra paranoid buyers.

Don’t expect luxury and protection like this to come cheap though, as each Knight XV will cost its owner a cool $295,000.

…Mirror’s Edge 2D is amazing?

Mirror's Edge 2D

By now you’ve probably heard of Mirror’s Edge, the free running/parkour game that is soon to debut for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

However, if you’d like to get in on the action a little early, then check out Mirror’s Edge 2D from Borne Games.

Made by the same people that created the Fancy Pants Adventure, Mirror’s Edge 2D is a free flowing Flash game that closely mirrors the gameplay style of Mirror’s Edge, only in 2D.

The goal is to run, jump, climb and slide your way through the level in a quick but creative way, collecting points and other goodies along the way.

Right now the game is still only in Beta, so you only get one level, and there still might be the occasional bug or two, but there’s definitely promise here, and it’s still fun to play as is, so head on over and give free running a chance.

…The PlayStation can keep an eye on you?

PlayStation 3 Eye

Sony’s PlayStation 3 advertising has always been hit or miss, but since I want to print out a poster sized image of this eye ad to put up on my wall, I’m going to call this one a definite hit.

…Sex sells Playstation 3s?

As post-launch Playstation 3 console prices plummeted on eBay, sellers needed to find a way of differentiating themselves from the numerous other sellers pimping the results of their multiple day camping trips. Combine that with eBay’s requirement that each listing have a unique photograph of the item in the seller’s possession, including the User ID and a clear, readable copy of the sales receipt or other proof of purchase, and the stage was set for a skin off. The women of eBay gladly bared all for a sex sells style listing war, and though the results are less than convincing, nothing says gaming like a nice set of boobies (not included with the system of course).
