Accessory Review: Xlerator Wheel Stand

November 27, 2010 | | 5 Comments

With Gran Turismo 5 being released (which I will try to get a review up for next week), I had also purchased the Logitech Driving Force GT wheel, as well as a stand for it (since all I had to place a wheel on was a flimsy TV tray that I use for my computer’s keyboard).

The stand is called the Big Boy Xlerator (there’s also a smaller version for smaller and shorter people, which is $20 cheaper). The product shipped from within my state, so I got it in about a day or two after I placed my order on Amazon. Order processing is very fast (Amazon itself doesn’t carry it; you can either get it directly from the manufacturer, or pay more and get it from a third party supplier :P).

I received the box, and it comes in 2 pieces, wrapped in a foam covering (there is no retail packaging or anything). They say it might lose some of its shine from the packing material, but to use like a car wax to polish it if you so please. Although there weren’t any visual instructions of how it goes together, it was still easy to figure out. Now that I had a chance to use it, was it worth the purchase price?

Axl Rose Sues Activison

November 25, 2010 | | 12 Comments

Guns & Roses lead singer Axl Rose has filed a $20m lawsuit against Activision over the use of former band member Slash ( a.k.a Saul Hudson )in the 2007 release of Guitar Hero III. Rose claims that Activision “spun a web of lies and deception” when a deal was made to allow the song “Welcome to the Jungle” to be featured in GHIII.

According to Rose, Activision was only given the rights to use the song on the condition that any reference to the departed guitarist, Slash , or his new band, Velvet Revolver, would be omitted. 

Before the game hit store shelves Rose discovered that Activision had plans to use Slash’s image for GHIII despite the terms of their agreement. After Rose allegedly demanded that Welcome to the Jungle be removed from the game because of the breech in contract, Activision reportedly informed him that the Slash character was just a “trade-show PR stunt”.
