New computer!

I mention in an earlier post that I had bought a new computer (plus a Chromecast!). I’ve been long thinking about buying a desktop computer (since I started working and earning money), but I never got around or felt I had a good reason. Also, before the summer I was packing down because I was selling my apartment, so that wasn’t a good time to buy a new computer.

This fall I got a small game development job making a game for UIO:Energi called Energispillet, so since I got a small fee for that, and I was tired of working on my laptop, which I just found out that I forgot to blog about. It was a Acer TimelineX 3830TG 13.3″, a nice laptop! That is why I decided to order my self a brand new desktop computer with just the hardware I wanted! Or, nearly just the hardware I wanted. I had a limit, so no fancy PSU or abandons of RAM and memory. So this is what I ended up with.

Monkey ISland 2 coming to XBLA!

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge is coming as a special edition to XBLA (and iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac, PC, PS3) this summer. Woho! This is one of my favorite game of all time. Check out some pictures over at Kotaku. Not sure if I like the new look, but as long as I can play with the old one, I won’t complain.
