This week I'm actually going to detour slightly from the game and instead feature one of my favorite hacks for playing DC Universe Online.

Even if you're not in the market for a Surface or a Zune, it might be worth stopping by the newly opened first Microsoft Store in Scottsdale, Arizona. That's where you'll be able to play in the gaming section, which sports a ocular-orb-overloading 93-inch screen. Which is pretty good. If you like b...
