The Consumer Electronics Show, which will kick off once again early next year in Las Vegas, Nevada, is the biggest showcase of upcoming TV's, home theaters and other pieces of home and travel technology.  And each year, a number of companies take part and attract thousands of attendees.  However, the upcoming 2012 show will mark a significant change for one company in particular -- Microsoft.


Some might say that the arcade is dead...and some of you would definitely be right.  When the home video game business boomed in the 90's, it pretty much spelled doom for the old mom and pop arcades that flourished in the 80's, as well as the arcade game business in general.  But some folks never gave up on the form, and today they have found a sudden resurgence in the nightlife market, living on as "barcades", drinking establishments mixed in with classic gaming.  And they've been quite successful.

10.24.11's an addiction in itself.  The retro-flavored action game has addicted millions of people thus far, and is even holding its own event, Minecon, next month in Las Vegas, Nevada.  But now it looks like it's going to cross over to a new platform, and a whole new level of addiction, as the game is set to hit the Xbox 360 early next year.  And those of you attending Minecon will get a chance to see what it's like.


There are several competitive video game tournaments out there that can really bring out the best in players.  This weekend, a lot of folks are invading Anaheim to see what the MLG crew can do (and with that, lots of love to Jessica and Kelly, you two got game!).  However, if you're an avid fighting fan, chances are you're watching tournaments taking place at the EVO Championship Series in Las Vegas, Nevada.  As you should be.


Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is a reimagining of last year's Dead Rising 2 with one key difference, it stars Dead Rising's protagonist Frank West. The game takes place in Fortune City, Nevada with many of the same locales, zombies and weapons of Dead Rising 2 and a few noteworthy and extremely over the top tweaks. The E3 2011 demo takes place in the new "Uranus Zone" which is a parody of Disneyland's "Tomorrow Land" area.
