The Mass Effect 3 "Vault" by Calibur11 makes your Xbox or PS3 look kind of like the torso of a Lego Commander Shepard. It also makes the counterintuitive claim of improving airflow to the device.If the allure of a system that is like a chest in two different senses of the word isn't enough, perhaps...

This time around it's a nod to Commander Shepard and friends with an "exclusive" Mass Effect 3 vault.The vault sports Shepard's chest armor, complete with...

While we're still not convinced it's a great idea to lock your hot, hot console inside a plastic box, Calibur11 has announced the latest in its line of "Vaults." Available for Xbox 360 or PS3, the new model carries a Battlefield 3 theme complete with an LED-lit claymore, decorative(?) smoke grena...

The calm before the storm. That's the best way to describe the RIFT screenshot above. As I puttered around and wasted time trying to frame my screenshot from the ideal angle, working that nomad model to his full potential, I was seconds away from a zone event opening up on my head. Instantly, abo...

About 99% of the time I'm in Lord of the Rings Online I never think about the LotRO Store. Ever since the store came online last year, it's been adventure as usual in the Olivetti household. Sure, I mock the "You got 5 Turbine Points! Now you can retire in the Caymans!" popups like everyone else,...

Regardless of how our world decides to end, we'd all like to be secure in the knowledge that our gaming consoles will survive. Calibur11's "Vault" case mod for the Xbox 360, which was formally unveiled on the CES 2011 show floor, should serve that ever-important purpose quite well.

What a difference a year makes, eh? One year ago, and you didn't have to put up with me yammering at you every Friday like a hyperactive badger with a personality disorder. One year ago, and we weren't free-to-play-anything, Turbine was its own company, the festivals were nowhere near as cool as th...

Three wolves. A full moon. One incredible cloak in the Lord of the Rings Online store. As a forum poster asked, is the Cloak of the Mountain Wolves too powerful and too intrinsically sweet? I think it is a distinct possibility. I already own six and have Sauron on farm status because of them. Forg...

Few things get me more excited than the promise of a big steak dinner and a big, beefy patch. Both get the mouth watering, the senses tingling, and the anticipation racing. However, the former comes and goes within minutes, while the latter is here to stay. I love devouring a good set of patch note...

It always amazes us just how resilient the economy is. Drop a few nukes, unleash a plague, dig up a tomb of zombies -- no matter how you end the world, the survivors will always emerge to find a merchant who's set up shop. In the spirit of post-apocalyptic commercialism, Icarus Studios has stocke...
