Heads up, folks, just go ahead and grab your wallet right now. That’s because the latest Humble Bundle has arrived, and it includes a number of stellar titles from Double Fine. Here, you can name your own price for Costume Quest, Psychonauts and Stacking, and if you beat the average, you’ll also score a copy of Brutal Legend. All payments of $ 1 or more will net you a Steam key for the games, which are available — some for the first time — on Windows, Mac and Linux. As a unique twist to the promotion, payments of $ 35 or more include early backer access to Broken Age, the crowd-funded game that was previously known as Double Fine Adventure. As always, you can allocate some (or all) of your payment to charity, which benefits the EFF and Child’s Play. Click on through to the Humble Bundle and you’ll find bonus incentives for doling out some cash.

If that TiVo Premiere of yours still does not have enough content sitting in its memory to satisfy your hunger, you’re in luck, as Flingo’s LauchPad on-demand video platform has actually just been baked into the hardware. Now, stations internet users can stream material from more than 70 video apps from the likes of A&E, CollegeHumor, Crunchyroll, History, Outset and others. LaunchPad for TiVo will also feature exclusive material, however details relating to simply what it may be are limited. In addition to the bunch of streaming options, users could even “fling” online videos from other gadgets to their tv screen with the help of a bookmarklet. Ashwin Navin, Flingo co-founder and CEO, informs Venture Beat that he ‘d such as to implement the firm’s SyncApps 2nd screen tech into TiVo’s box, however that won’t be being available in the near future.

Perhaps you were discouraged by the uncertainty that comes along with a Kickstarter pledge, or you simply missed your chance to give Motrr’s Galileo an $ 85 kick before the deadline hit. Whatever the reason, you’re still in luck — the iOS-controlled iPhone platform is now available for a proper pre-order, with a 10-percent discount and free shipping in tow. Galileo, which netted a whopping $ 702,427 in Kickstarter funding, could soon be on its way to a nursery or conference room near you, for the slightly increased sum of $ 116.99. That Benjamin and change will buy you one 360-degree rotating platform, complete with a rechargeable battery, USB cable, tripod screw and user manual. There’s no word on when this latest round of pre-orders will be filled, but the company did confirm that it plans to ship the first batch this summer. Full deets (and pre-order option) are at the source link after the break.

Engadget has seen plenty of limited edition items looking to lighten the wallets of oil barons and hedge fund managers alike. Now Capcom’s readying its bundle for Resident Evil 6′s Japan launch and it includes protagonist Leon’s leather jacket — available in sizes S, M, L and XL. A complete set of as-yet unrevealed “tablet cases”, supposedly emblazoned with character designs will also arrive in the set, as those wealthy enough to afford the 104,000 yen ($ 1,300) set presumably have at least four devices to garnish with Resident Evil livery. Japanese one-percenters can hit up the preorder site — with their choice of jacket size — at the source below.
Crime, it just doesn’t pay. Well, actually it does, to the tune of £53,612, but then you get caught and you have to work off that salary with two years at Her Majesty’s pleasure. One Ashley Mitchell, an enterprising 29-year old from Devon, England, managed to break into Farmville maker Zynga’s mainframe, hijack the identities of two of its staffers, and procure for himself a cool £7 million ($ 11.4m) in virtual poker chips. He then proceeded to sell about a third of them for the above sum, while consuming a big chunk of the rest in satisfying his own gambling habit. Ashley already had a history of digital malfeasance, having previously hacked into the systems of Torbay Council, his former employer, and is now on the receiving end of a two-year prison term for his current crime plus the activation of a 30-week suspended sentence. There’s a warning in this tale of woe for us all, however — Monsieur Mitchell piggybacked on his neighbors’ unsecured WiFi networks in order to do his dastardly deeds. Slap a password on that router, won’t you?

And yet the pigs go marching on. Rovio’s Angry Birds is just over a year old now, and in that time it’s racked up 50 million in downloads, with 10 million of those from Android. An impressive number in its own right, and that puts it in a very elite group of gaming franchises that counts Bejeweled (50m) and Legend of Zelda (59m) among its members. (Membership includes fancy jackets and fezzes.) Our guess is that includes the iOS “Lite” version, which does downplay the milestone, but with new versions coming to PC, Mac, and the big three game consoles still on stores shelves — as well as a sequel — we doubt that asterisk will matter for long. Watch your ever-propagating back, Tetris.

The secret behind MSG’s surprise 3D broadcast of last night’s Rangers/Islanders hockey game? It came together in a two week turnaround which repurposed equipment laying around between stops at a recent Black Eyed Peas concert and next month’s NAB show in Las Vegas. Judging by the reviews it was worth the effort with more than a few indicating an interest in buying 3DTVs to check things out at home next time — while it aired on Cablevision, all the reports we found were based on the screens located at the arena itself. Not everyone agreed on the best aspects of the new production: Christopher Botta of Fanhouse preferred a lack of “reaching through the screen” gimmicks while the New York Times report asked for more opportunities to feel like the players are popping out at the viewer, even though they found the standard HDTV feed “flat, underlit and distant” in comparison. We couldn’t find any complaints regarding those ever-present 3D glasses, though issues like someone walking in front of the camera or on screen graphics appearing to leap off the screen revealed there’s still a few kinks to work out (camera placement may be further adjusted during an upcoming renovation.) The appeal of 3D sports for fans has already been established, we’re wondering if playing in a more 3D-ready arena might be used to convince Lebron or other stars to play home games at MSG, in the meantime, check out all the reviews and a few behind the scenes videos embedded after the break.
