Gamings Lost Gems

There are many games out there that have seemed to escape the public eye and has slipped under a sea of top-tier titles and remain unknown to many unfortunate gamers out there. I call upon the eccentric and the wise to cast their knowledge of lost gaming gems to those of us here, and let us have a few hours of gaming goodness. Remember that this is only for the lesser known titles, not the best or worst games. Thank you, and have fun.

Any video game ideas?

Hello, I am making a game and I have ran out of ideas. I has hoping that maybe some people might have ideas they would want in a game. It has a building aspect to it like minecraft, or terraria. The game Is about a merge of time lines, like Medieval knights and gulf war soldiers. I don't really want a whole new plot, but small ideas like enemies or other little parts.           Also If I use your idea, I will tell you and if its implemented in the game i might even pay you.Thanks you!

Will a PS3 make a good gaming computer?

I know that its possible to get a ps3 running Linux, turning it into a fully functional computer. And some people say that it will make a good gaming computer, but the hardware doesnt seem to meet the requirements, only 325 mb of RAM when most games require 6gb. Will a ps3 be a good gaming computer running linux, or is it only good for gaming as a console?

Minecraft

How many of you Instructatarians play Minecraft?For those of you who don't, Minecraft.net. Its a sandbox game where you can create and destroy blocks to build structures and dig tunnels in either a vast single player world or collaborate in one of many public and private Minecraft servers with players around the world. Kind of like Legos, but as a game. For those of you who do, how many would like a private Instructables server? I've been thinking of setting one up.

The Lost Ring ARG

We just sat in on our friend Jane McGonigal's SXSW talk on how life could be far more awesome and rewarding were it organized more like alternate reality games, and were lucky enough to get a peek into her new game, The Lost Ring.The concept is pretty neat: Ariadne woke up blindfolded in a corn maze outside of Johannesburg with no memory, Olympic-calibur athletic skills, and a tattoo bearing the words "trovu la ringon perditan" -- Esperanto for "find the lost ring." She sets out to find what is happening to her, and discovers others with similar stories.There's already a wiki, and the game will almost certainly spawn offshoot projects all over the net and physical world.Background info:The Lost Ring is a global alternate reality adventure created in partnership between McDonald's, AKQA and Jane McGonigal. Designed in collaboration with the IOC, The Lost Ring invites players from across the globe to join forces online and in the real world, as they investigate forgotten mysteries and urban legends of the ancient games. The Lost Ring recognizes McDonald's historic sponsorship of the Olympic Games, and brings the spirit of the Games to people around the world.It started a week ago and should run for around 6 months. Go check it out, and join up!

Turn a Massage (vibrating) chair to work with Xbox 360

I had an idea although IDK how to implement it. I have a Vibrating massage chair (its just like a average recliner with some vibrators in it) I had lost the wall wort power adapter for this in a move a couple years ago and recently i had an idea while looking for gaming chairs and i thought to myself this would be more comfortable than something i could afford being a $500+ chair already i think I might try to fix it and in the process make it a gaming chair. I just dont know how........ So basically this chair uses a 12v 600MaH/.6v Power adapter (which i lost and when i was going to replace it thought i might me able to do more with this than just make it work again. So once it is plugged in it has a corded remote that has a back and seat vibration control's of off high and low. now i am not thinking of making the vibrations respond with intensity but just vibrate in general in conjunction with the system. I would say I have a Intermediate knowledge about soldering modding etc. Although I have no IDEA how to do this. I think it would somehow require a special Controller connected to the chairs power. As all i would want is the chair to vibrate when the controller does. The back oof the chair has a velcro flap that i an access the innerds of the chairs mecanism (i suppose for fixing it if it broke) So the only thing is how to hook up the controller in a way its not obtrusive to controlling it and simply how to do it. I know this may be a hard question to ask about without someone seeing the chair but is it possible??? How do gaming chairs achieve this effect ????? I would like it to be connected to the controller somehow and not the xbox as the cord is undesirable. So basically all I need to do is make some sort of circuit that is connected to the xbox controller that turns the chair on when it turns on. thats basically it. so first of all is it possible and if so any pointers??? I think it would also make a nice instruct-able after I find out how to do it. I assume it would require some soldering and at MOST and Arduino but I hope not as i do not have much experience with them. although if it does maybe someone can help me and all the Arduino Programing would all be credited to whoever helps me with the code. So yeah I would like to make this work I really think it would be cool as i already have a sound system that is good enough for sound (i can easily wire some extra speakers to be mounted behind the chair and once i get the vibration i would basically have a nice lay-z-boy gaming chair IDK. I have no xbox controller modding exp ( i never really wanted to or had the need) so it would be a learning experience for me although if it could be done with a USB connection to the Xbox that would be ok for now ( i would run it under the rug but its not the optimal result i want) In all since this chair already has the vibration mecanism i would think it would be possible and hopefully not that difficult to do. (at least i hope so) If this interests anyone I would GREATLY appreciate your help. and i will certanly tag anyone who helps me with this when i finish and make an instruct-able. So in all thank all of you who reply to this post and I hope i posted this in the correct forum as i never have asked for help on this site. THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE

Finalizing my Desk

Hello Instructables members, I'm quite new to the wood crafting world and after many hours of research and opinions i have decided to make my own desk. I've got a 3D model of what i want and the hardware i use that justifies the need for the desk i built. I am at a stand still though has i have no idea of what type of wood to use or where to place supports. I've tried my best at figuring it out myself but i don't seem able to get it right. So if anyone could help me out please do! Also if anyone has any ideas to accessories to build into this desk please feel free to share! I've already got plans for grommets and an outlet for my laptops power brick. My model is open to anyone to modify and change, i also thank those that designed the monitors and laptop i used. Desk

The New XBOX 360

I just want to hear what you guys think about about the new xbox, which was released yesterday, I have heard it has built- in Wi Fi, quieter running, looks good and has a massive 250 gb hard drive. PS3 owners don't start bragging about ps3 here, just honestly say what you think about it. Advantages over current XBOX 360: >250 GB Internal Hard Drive >Improved reliability >Internal Wi Fi at the strongest strength, not en extra £60 ($100) >Kinect Ready >Only $299 0r around £180-200 (same price as the current elite) >Amazing new retro looks to the original XBOX here is the Microsoft Website (a bit biased though!) http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/

Gaming is Changing

I used to like console gaming because systems rarely/never costed more than $300, it was simple, and everybody had the same stuff. There were no expensive HDTVs, broadband-requiring/expensive online play, the fanciest peripheral was the rumble pack, and your console didn't do anything except light up a power light if there was no game in it.I'm not rich, my parents have never owned a house, and with all the fancy crap that consoles require and do today, I can't afford even a Wii (not that I'd want one, the novelty has worn off). I'm not saying all these improvements in gaming are bad, but for someone like me, I just don't have the money for a shiny new 360, or even high-speed internet (I live on an acerage and there's no cable in the country) for online muiltiplayer/communication.For now, I'll just have to fondly remember having home tournaments playing Star Wars Episode 1 Pod-Racer on N64 with my friends.What do YOU think about gaming today?

World Record Gaming Gathering.

A total of 342 gamers dressed as icons from games such as Final Fantasy, Zelda and Solid Snake in east London as part of the London Games Festival.They narrowly broke a record of 337 set last week in Germany.Festival director Duncan Best said: "It was a bit touch-and-go for a while but the gaming community really stepped up to the challenge."The record was verified by Guinness World Records at the Excel Centre in Docklands on Saturday.A further 50 fans in fancy dress could not take part, however, as rules stated that characters who were primarily famous from movies were disqualified."So we had people turning up dressed as Lego Batman, for example, who could not be counted," said Mr Best. Get your details right, BBC! We all know Batman is most famous from the TV show...Still, it would have been nice to see the Lego Batman costume.BBC StoryLondon Games FestivalGuinness World Records

Mini/Micro Game System

Hi guys, I've been thinking. Really thinking. I recently found my Digispark (if you dont know what those are, google digistump, click on the first link and go to products, Digispark. They're really cool.) and decided to put it to use. I have always wanted to have/build something like a micro gaming system (sort of like the ben nanonote (if you don't what that is, google it, its really cool)) and decided that as a challenge, I could try implementing the Digispark as the Processor. I know that I wouldn't be able to run any games more advanced than pong, breakout or snake, but even those kinds of games would be enough to keep me interested while in boring situations. My basic thinking is this: There would a small lithium-ion rechargeable battery on the bottom to be a base (but still removable), the Digispark without any headers above the batteries, and a small LCD screen (1.8, 2 or 1.3 inch screen size) that would have either two pushbuttons (one on either side of the screen) or four pushbuttons configured in a D-pad style on the right side of the screen (how many buttons it would have depends on how many pins the Digispark would have open (if any), which also leads to my question, does anybody know any place to get video LCD screens (don't care if its color or not) that only take up 4 or less pins? I know that probably seems absurd, but if anybody knows any places to get them, please let me know. And just one last thing, is it possible to program games in the arduino IDE? Are there libraries for them? ANd if you can program games, just how advanced can you go?

fitting bluetooth speakers to a racing seat to make a gaming chair

Hi guys and gals im building a gaming chair from a racing seat and my plans are to strip a Bluetooth speaker I bought and mount each of the speakers in the seat belt holes in the rear of the seat. My question is what are your thoughts on the housing for the speakers? My idea was to use some plastic and mold airtight cups for them and fit them that way but I am open to suggestions and to be honest  want to make the most of your ideas. The speaker I am using is from Amazon see here  thanks in advance  my seat is very similar to the one in the picture have included
