Good thing Kevin and Alex are in San Francisco this week, because Kevin got his new gaming rig from Falcon Northwest. It's bad ass and it's a pretty good case to put a beer on top of. Especially if it's a beer from the Diggnation Beer Club.
Thanks to our partners, Clubs of America, you can drink the exact beers Kevin and Alex drink on Diggnation. Join the club and every month, you'll have 12 beers shipped right to your door. You must be 21 or older and they only ship within the US. And, the beer club makes for a great holiday gift!
It's hard to believe, but the first New Duke Nukem Forever Teaser Trailer Released! Alex loved Duke Nukem 3D but Kevin thinks this new trailer looks pretty crappy. Alex points out that its been in development forever, and that its not going to compare to games of today, like Crysis and Bioshock. They should focus on the gameplay and not the graphics. Digg This Story.
It's got a bit better production values, its the New Tay Zonday Video! Kevin and Alex are skeptical about the Tay Zonday videos, they seem to be planned from the start with the Chocolate Rain video and Alex thinks the kid is playing a character. Digg This Story
PC World has boldly declared that Vista is the #1 biggest tech disappointment of 2007 but they're not saying it's the worst operating system ever, it just didn't deliver what Microsoft promised it would. Alex actually likes Vista a lot, mainly because it feels new to him, but XP is better for gaming. Kevin always the latest OS, but when they're new, they're usually slower or buggy and he has to deal with it. But ultimately they both want the latest and greatest operating systems. Digg This Story.
Kevin is very excited for this new website, How Many Five Year Olds Could You Take in a Fight? After going through the questions, we find out how many 5 year olds Alex could take in a fight and they discuss the practicality of fighting a swarm of kids. Digg This Story.
In completely shocking news, a student was arrested for cutting food with knife Kevin is appalled that all this girl was doing was eating her lunch, and she got thrown in juvie. Kevin and Alex are old and the times have changed because they used to bring knives and ninja stars to school all the time. Digg This Story.
