Damn It! These Are Dope

Eurolight
There isn't much choice when it comes to headlight color. You have your standard clear and its darkened alternative, smoked. Boh-ring. For those looking for more flavor, Tourenn offers their Eurolight dye kit giving you the option of customizing your headlights six different shades: Ice Blue (pictured), violet, dark blue, Lux Green, dark green, and good ol' black. If you want to change or revert back to stock status, the kit comes with removal liquid, giving you the option of going back from black . . . or any other color for that matter.

PRE
Finally, a serious competitor to Apple's iPhone-and one that makes multitasking effortless by letting you shuffle applications like a deck of cards to boot. Putting functionality first despite its slick looks, the long-awaited mobile handset also comes correct in terms of pure performance given a multi-touch screen, QWERTY keyboard, GPS navigation, and high-speed Internet access, resulting in a device that (woot!) wows as much for sheer innovation as actual hands-on practicality.

DMC-FX580
Between the high-speed chases, sex-starved hotel heiresses' and aging pop stars who can't remember to buckle up their kids, playing paparazzi's no joke these days. Thankfully, amateur shutterbugs have the advantage of increasingly adept, cost-affordable hardware-e.g. yon 12.1 megapixel model, boasting a 5x optical zoom, wide-angle lens and support for detecting/targeting buddies' faces-and improved battery life at their disposal. Better yet for everyday schlubs, its three-inch touchscreen LCD renders screening those elusive photos of drunken starlets that much more rewarding.

P7
As if finding a working copy of White Chicks online wasn't tough enough, converting it for use on a mobile device practically requires a degree in computer engineering. Not so with this stunner of a portable media player that aims to shoulder the workload via built-in converter and a 4.3-inch color touchscreen, ensuring maximum comfort and viewing enjoyment. Access songs, photos and FM radio broadcasts on-demand, with 50 hours of battery life merely an added bonus for closet Wayans admirers.

BD-P4600
Got money to burn? Torch it on this high-end Blu-ray player, which not only scores points for its slick aesthetic, but ultra-slim and wall-mountable profile, making it among the world's most anorexic. Video quality impresses too, with 1080p (read: high-def output) and standard-def DVD upscaling included, while options for streaming 12,000-plus films/TV shows, via Netflix and tunes off of Pandora, round out its feature set. Serious digital entertainment junkies can even beam content over from PC-Debbie Does Des Moines, here we come!

Wolfenstein
Government scandals, crippling recessions, yellowjournalism . . . everything old is new again! Ditto for this inspired revamp of the 1992 Nazi-stomping run-n-gun classic, which first put the joy of 3D exploding heads on the cultural map. Only now, legendary hero B.J. Blazkowicz reaps the benefit of a dazzling high-def makeover, a myriad of superpowers and support for flitting between parallel dimensions. Albeit mostly more of the same, what can we say? Kicking goose-stepping chumps in the wienerschitznel still qualifies as timeless entertainment.

Red Faction: Guerrilla
Allow us to reacquaint you with the cult classic first-person shooter series - all two fans of the original, please raise your hand. Long story short: It's back to sci-fi dystopia you go, with the ability to blow holes in walls paramount. But this time, you can also topple buildings, rework staircases and approach scenarios more strategically, courtesy of the franchise's most destructible terrain yet. Revolutionary stuff it isn't, though perky, unpredictable battles prove reasonably "groundbreaking" in their own right regardless.

Prototype
Splitting the difference between superhero revenge fantasy and open-world 3D epic, behold the ultimate ode to wish fulfillment for any adolescent dreamer who's wanted to shift shapes or sprout custom organic weaponry on-command. [Insert your own "is that a bone spur in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me" joke here.] As amnesiac doppelganger Alex Mercer, race up walls, rip adversaries new orifices, or just amuse yourself seeing how much virtual havoc one sex-starved basement dweller can cause. Nifty!

The Conduit
With blood-drenched hits like MadWorld and GTA: Chinatown Wars not selling nearly as well as anticipated, some would argue the future of hardcore titles on Nintendo's motion-sensing Wii looks bleak. But said contender-wherein you control former Secret Service agent Mr. Ford, besieged by evil insectoid aliens called "The Drudge"-makes a compelling case otherwise. Thank graphics a cut above the system's typical murky fare, customizable controls and the "All-Seeing Eye," a nifty gadget which makes spotting hidden items and enemies easier. Mario Kart, you've been warned...

Fight Night Round4
No Rocky Balboa-style comeback needed here-as always, the presiding ring king comes correct on both the audiovisual and gameplay fronts. From post-8-bit-Tyson's raw power to Ali's fancy footwork, expect a staggering one-two punch of lifelike combat and unparalleled strategic depth. Dazzle rivals with jab-to-uppercut combos, or corner opponents before creaming them with blows so vicious you'll wince with every photorealistic impact. While such a bombastic approach to the sweet science won't thrill all, as far as we're concerned, it's still the undisputed champ.
