Gaming desktops re-invented and Doctor Who: Legacy on it’s way to the BAFTAs

At this years Consumer Electronics Show, Razer came away two more awards to add to their collection. The concept design for Project Christine netted them a Best PC distinction, while Razer Nabu helped them secure the People’s Choice award. So, what are they?

Project Christine in Razer’s idea for a modular PC that will make it easier for the average person to build, and upgrade, their own system. In the long run, this is likely to save the average person tons of money because they don’t have to buy a whole new system to upgrade to newer technology. Instead, they can simply slot-in new parts, and pull out others.

Razer Nabu is a step into a new category for the world leader in entertainment devices and software. It is a smartband, which will allow users to track their fitness, it’s location and even sleep data, but only if you let it. You can also use it as a passive communication tool to find friends in the local vicinity. With this, I think Razer are going to broaden their consumer-base, as it is something for everyone, not just gamers.

I have contacted Razer to enquire more about Project Christine, and will keep you updated as it develops

Since the release of Doctor Who: Project Legacy on November 27th, it has successfully attracted both Whovians and casual gamers to form a Facebook community of over 26,000 members. It is referred to as ‘one of the more moral free-to-play games when it comes to how it treats its players’ by the news service, Digital Spy.

Instead of forcing players to pay money to advance, they have designed it with all ages in mind and have therefore ensure it can be played without spending a single penny. This is a great thing for me to hear as I am a Whovian and would hate to see a Doctor Who game join the ranks of greedy games that either require hours of grinding, or some flashing of cash.

The puzzle RPG mobile game has successfully reached the jury stage in the Family category of the gaming BAFTAs.

You can be sure I will be following this and crossing my fingers for their success.
