Nintendo Wii U E3 Trailer

Nintendo has release there demo of the new and updated Wii U at E3, it is mostly a new controller. The system will have support for HD video, older Wii games, and USB ports for new stuff. But the main thing they are building is a new controller that has a touch screen, camera, and motion sensors. It seems that it is mostly about having one of the new controllers and a bunch of Wii controllers that you should already have if you own a Wii. I’m sure if you want a second Wii U controller it will run around $100.

As for the games it looks like there are a lot of new ways to build games with or without the main system, and you can have 5 people playing in a demo game where they would chase down the 5th person with the new controller. Should be fun, but I still love PC gaming!

New Monitor: Samsung EX2220X 21.5-Inch

Samsung EX2220X

Well I got my new monitor I ordered the other day in. I have been using it for a few weeks now and its so nice to have such a big screen. I have wanted a bigger screen, but it’s hard for me to spend money on new computer stuff when I know I need to keep my bills and other things paid. But I knew we had the money and it was somewhat hard for me to read the text for my online college classes because they made it so you can resize the window and increase the font size. I first started looking at LG screens, but I couldn’t find one that I liked and was the size I was looking for. I also wasn’t looking at what Amazon.com had at first just trying to see what there was. I order stuff though Amazon Prime since I paid for that so I get free shipping on almost everything I want to buy online. I was ordering quite a few things that we needed and I wanted so it was cheaper to get the Prime account then pay for shipping, plus it’s 2-day. So I finely looked at the Samsung screens, I thought they would be good partly because most stores use Samsung for their displays and they are on and running almost 24/7. This screen had good specs and didn’t have the large ugly bezel (think that’s right) so if I got a second one it would match up nice and be easy to look at. Here is a rundown of the features:

  • 21.5″ 16:9 Widescreen
  • 5ms Response Time
  • 1,920 x 1,080 Full HD
  • LED Back-light
  • Connector 15pin D-SUB + DVI-D
  • Not too pricey!

This is a relay nice screen, and it’s nice to have the extra desktop space, and have two windows side by side doing with in one reading on the other. The color is also good and the picture is sharp and clean. It looks way better than even the screen on my laptop that I was liking so much that it was where my keyboard was, now its been put to the side more. If I had the extra money to burn and didn’t want to upgrade my computer more than have a second screen I would love to run two of these side by side and have lots of room to spread out. Someday I’ll get that setup going, but for now this is a great improvement.
