Razer Announces Project Christine Concept, Looks To Make The PC Modular

razer-christine-06

Have you ever wished that you could just go to the store and buy a new CPU, RAM, or GPU and then just go home and plug it in like a USB or something and not have to worry about opening up your PC, and getting all down and dirty inside it? Or maybe wish you could just do that and not have to call that techie friend to come help you put it all together? Well Razer has thought these same things, and has come up with this very interesting modular design concept.

razer-christine-03

The Idea here is that you buy the “spine” and then you buy the components you want to add to your PC; such as CPU, RAM, GPU, and hard drives as modules. Then you take these modules home, plug them into the “Spine” and voilà you just built your PC. Later on when you realize that maybe you want some more RAM or a better GPU (or maybe a Second one), you go to the store, purchase the GPU module you want, take it home and plug it in, simple as that.

Each module is sealed and completely self contained and features noise canceling, as well as active liquid cooling. They claim that by using this design it will be safe to overclock and not void any warranties.

The thought here, is that by buying into the “spine” you can simply upgrade your system as needed, very easily, so easily in fact, anyone can do it by just plugging in a new module of their choosing. Thus negating the need to replace entire systems and not having to have to get down into the nitty gritty of the system, which for some people also means that they can do it themselves instead of calling that friend to come do it for them.

For now, Razer’s Project Christine is a concept, but if Razer has shown us anything these last few years, it is that when they see an idea take off, they can make it happen.

I think this is a very interesting idea and assuming the cost isn’t insane, I think this is a great idea, especially for friends/family that would love to game on a PC but are to concerned about upgrading and tinkering. For them this would be a great solution to that problem, as when they are no longer able to play new games, they can go in and swap whatever components they need to in order to be current again. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this concept in the future, and here is hoping we see them actually make it happen.

Steam OS has been announced, coming soon to a living room near you

Steam OS Logo

Today, Valve made the first announcement of three that they have scheduled for this week. Valve has announced the Steam OS, a Linux based Steam OS for the living room. In their own words:

As we’ve been working on bringing Steam to the living room, we’ve come to the conclusion that the
environment best suited to delivering value to customers is an operating system built around Steam itself.
SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience built for the big screen.
It will be available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines.

In addition to a free open platform, they are also touting that due to being an integrated OS, they have “achieved significant performance increases in graphics processing, and we’re now targeting audio performance and reductions in input latency at the operating system level. ” As well, they are stating that Steam OS will integrate streaming your games from your desktop PC. They also stated that they are working on bringing the media services we love over to the platform in the coming months. No word on when Steam OS would be released, only that it would be released as a free download sometime in the near future.

This looks to be a way for Gabe Newell to show his love for Linux, and to try and build a better PC for the living room. We will be very interested in seeing where this goes in the future. Stay tuned for the next announcements that Valve is making later this week.

Shadow of the Eternals wants so badly to be Eternal Darkness 2.

shadowoftheeternals

So yesterday Precursor Games launched a crowd-funding campaign for Shadow of the Eternals. They are looking to raise 1.5 Million Dollars to bring this episodic game to the Wii U and PC in Q3 2014. They are hoping to create a total of 12 episodes in all and are asking for your money to do it. Some are calling this a spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. Now this is a relatively new company which, after looking at their website, appears to be filled mostly with Ex Silicon Knights employees, which for better or worse includes Denis Dyack. Denis Dyack was the Writer, Producer and Director for Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. Now this is not a Kickstarter campaign, so I would tread carefully with this one, as there is no way to back out after you pledge. Teaser trailer is below.
