Rotastic Review

Published October 13, 2011 at 2:36 pm

You spin me right round baby, right round, like a record baby, right round, round, round...

How many times have you wondered how much more fun something would be if a hell of a lot more spinning was involved? Well, like most people, the answer is probably not that many times, but that doesn't mean that Dancing Dots doesn't want you to think about that kind of stuff: cue Rotastic, a charming, colourful, and slightly mad puzzle game where the main objective is to grab onto little pegs with your rope, spin around in circles and attempt to collect as many gems and other objects as you can along the way. The more gems you manage to collect, the higher your score is going to be, the higher score you manage to get, the bigger and better helmet you'll attain when the level finishes. We all know what it means if you've got the biggest helmet...

cooler-master-case-1Cooler Master recently announced their new full tower “Storm Trooper” case, and indeed, it is a very cool case; the Storm Trooper will offer fan and LED controllers on the front of the case, USB 3.0 options, several fan expansion options, and optimized air current channels to accelerate airflow as it enters the case, yielding maximum cooling efficiency. In theory.

Cooling System

The case fits a total of eight fans, of which four ship with initial purchase -- you'll get a 200mm, 140mm, and 2x120mm fans with your investment. This case will have no problem keeping your components at a low temperature.

Cooler Master also assures us that the case can easily be configured for a liquid cooling system, as with the Thermaltake Chaser MK- I LCS.

“So I have to go and do some 'Renegade Ops' 'Just Cause' you told me to ?!?” - Bwahahahaha!! I crack myself up!

When you hear the title Renegade Ops you don't really know what you're letting yourself in for, you'll probably assume that you're going to be playing some kind of military-based game that focuses on the concept of revenge more than anything else, and you wouldn't be too far off. What you won't be expecting from a title like that is one of the best twin stick shooters on the market today; and that's exactly what Renegade Ops is.
