While Apple sells the world on a dream comprised of 50 shades of grey, the hardcore modders among you will crave something a little different. Over at GamesCom 2012, a large section of Hall 11 has been dedicated to the past (retro gaming), present (extreme sports) and the future (experimental games and modded systems). KitGuru fires up the Dremel for a quick scan of the PCs on show.
The German Casemod Championships (DCMM) have been held at the enormous GamesCom event in Cologne, Germany. Fired up by the specialist forum We-Mod-It and sponsored by a number of companies, including Aixit (Field Managed Cloud Computing Experts) – the DCMM is an amazing event.
Teams are given a great studio set up, with a wide range of tools already provided – but they can bring their own as well. Each entry has 24 hours to be completed and, if our operative understood the German instructions properly, your team can have a total break of 45 minutes in that 24 hour period.
There’s not a lot else we can add to this intro, because the work rate, imagination and results really do speak for themselves. So, in no particular order, here’s a low-level fly-by of some of the best ’24 hour builds’ that the modding world has ever seen:-
KitGuru says: Frankly, we were blown away by these mods. It’s not just the range and scale of the various entries – but the fact that all of the teams are working off a fairly level playing field in terms of tools and time. Everyone in the KitGuru Labs has a favourite – and no two are the same. What about you?
