    This week, Valve is giving you a look at the demo they let people play at E3. Only thing is, you don’t actually get to play it, and it’s being released in seven parts. But hey, a video will suffice, right? (If you’d prefer words about a video instead, our previous E3 demo coverage is here.) In today’s installment, you meet Wheatley, a personality sphere who just happens to be one of the game’s new characters. Follow

    Guest Review: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer

    When I heard that Stephenie Meyer wanted to write a novella about a minor character in the Twilight series, I started to look for who this minor character could possibly be.

Let’s run down the specs first: The 3DS is light at about 8 ounces. The system is 5.3 inches wide, 2.9 inches long and .8 inches tall The colors are to be determined I believe. The top screen has 800×240 resolution. There is one inner camera and two outer cameras. A “slide pad” is new (and feels great) and it includes a motion sensor and a gyro sensor. The 3DS also includes a 3D Depth slider which allows gamers to adjust the level of the 3D effect. This means you
