    Isn't it time we took android/iOS seriously as a gaming platform?

    By itself, it was just another one of those threads: "PSVita vs 3DS". By the numbers specs on what each handheld device has to offer, not too shabby comparison and a lengthy poll... But it's all about just those two devices. And not only that, but the obvious "get a smartphone" answer is barely...

    Hacking ethics

    So, just something I need to put out there since I've seen this come up in other scenes like PSP, Vita and maybe others. How is it that some devs will claim an ethical stance against ROMS and playing backups but allow homebrew emulators? Sure an SNES game is worth about $1 now and I guess the devs...

    That Late August Feeling

    Don't you hate that late August feeling where the weather slowly starts to change, you don't feel like doing anything, and school is about to start which bums you out even more (or at least if you live in the Northern Hemisphere which I'm sure that many of you do)? And plus, I'm bogged down with...

    Choosing an Upgrade - Chassis Edition

    Last time I looked at the motherboards on my shortlist, mostly as a way of sorting out my opinions to decide what I want in my future upgrade path (there will always be a need for more drives), and partially to let others see what kind of thought can go into a system build and how system builders...

    Choosing an Upgrade - Motherboard Edition

    So I've been doing a lot of research into Z97 motherboards in the last couple weeks and feel like posting some of my findings here as a way of sorting out my own thoughts and considerations into this. I've said in my last post that my motive for upgrading is a shortage of free SATA ports in my...

    I've recently updated to DIOS MIOS v2.11 on my wii, but whenever i try to load a game the screen goes black and no GC symbol. I beleive I'm doing most of the things correctly, the sd cluster size is 64kb and the usb cluster size is 32kb. Can someone please help? I was playing Metroid Prime on...

    MIOS Patcher not starting!

    Hello, I am using Homebrew on my Wii and trying to use the Action Replay Gamecube application. I already finished the CIOS installer and now I'm on step 2, the MIOS Patcher. I pressed A to start the installer but it didn't, it took me back to the loader. How do I fix this? If anyone knows then...

    I have no idea why i wrote this...

    This was a disclaimer I wrote up for my opinion on another site and... I don't know what I was doing. The writing just flowed through and suddenly I wrote an essay. Disclaimer: This is only an opinion and has no direct relevance to the situation as I am merely choosing to be ignorant of the state...

    Guild Plays: Mario Kart b8

    No, I don't own a Wii U. One of my friends bought one recently and we played it a lot yesterday. So yeah, my impressions. It's... really underwhelming. I mean just everything about it seems really lacking. So first things first, the roster. How goddamn boring is that. I mean they cut characters...

    I'm doing a couple of review series...

    Hey everybody. I just wanted to see what you guys think of my video review series I'm making. There are two: Family Man Gamer and OUYA Oh Yeah! OUYA Oh Yeah! is focused on OUYA Games. It attempts to create a positive thought environment about the OUYA as an alternative to console gaming, while...

    We're in a gaming crisis...

    As I'm writing this, there are a few live topics claiming that gaming is dead (here and here). While there is something to be said for them - at least the former - I don't think it does the situation justice. First the pretty obvious disclaimers: * when talking about 'gaming' in this blog entry,...

    Guild Plays: Magic 2015

    Yeah, I prepurchased it. It's $10 so why not. I'm kinda disappointed though. So yeah, it's another Duels of the Planeswalkers game and I'm a sucker for them. It's just a way to get out that Magic hankering when I have no one to play with but don't want to spend money on Magic Online. If you...

    man, 2DS is Awesome!

    so a couple months ago i bought a 2DS, even though i allready own a 3DS XL, as they had a Free Zelda four swords offer on the eShop. my thinking being to buy it as a "zelda holder", and i could always use it as a guest controller for download play when company comes over. best purchase of my...

    So apparantly Shovel Knight has over 300 cheat codes.

    If you ask me, they should have spent more time making more game and less time coming up with codes. I felt the game was way too short given the Kickstarter budget they had and the time they took. They had enough of a 2D-retro game finished to offer a demo and a trailer of most the game back in...

    3DS Flashcarts

    I have a 3DS running firmware version 8.0.0-18u. Are there any flashcarts that can play 3ds games, can have more than one game per sd card, and can run on my firmware version? Or are there any that have an update coming out soon that will allow me to do all that?

    Right Place, Wrong Time

    Trying to wrap my head around some... interesting events that occurred last night. Figured this was as good a place to vent as any. Without going into specifics, I am an American, but have spent this summer working at a company R&D lab in China. It's been quite nice to get away from where I was...
