If you are a Pokémon fan, Nintendo is expected to make an announcement today that you will want to pay attention to. The announcement was teased yesterday with a graphic that simple said “Pokemon Direct 6.6.2017.”
Nintendo has announced details on the online gaming service that will be landing for the Switch next year. The Nintendo Switch Online service will cost just $19.99 per year, and will not only support online gameplay, but give you access to a library of classic video games from the NES.
Super Mario Bros. is a great game on it’s own, but there are unique ways to play it to provide an added challenge. Roderick of Nintendo Unity took on difficult task of beating the original NES game without the benefit of collecting coins, killing enemies (besides the final Bowser), or using items.
While most of us can’t even get our hands on a Nintendo Switch, some guys are out dropping theirs repeatedly on the ground already. The guys from UnlockRiver took the Switch with its two Joy-Con controller attached, tied it to a string and used a drone to lift it 1000-feet into the air.
As a child of the ’80s we didn’t have fidget spinners when I was growing up. We also had to walk uphill both ways in the snow to school, but that is another story. The closest we had to a fidget spinner in my house was twirling the TV remote between your fingers until it shot across the room and bounced off the all glass console TV screen, and the punishment that followed.
As a child of the ’80s, you can bet I love my arcade games. Traditionally, I prefer them on the big cabinets that used to consume my dollars back in the day. If you want something a bit (well a lot) smaller than those old school arcade machines, you can get that with this tiny playable arcade kit.
There’s nothing more boring than waiting around for your meal to cook. Well, Colin Furze has a solution. The Play-A-Wave, a game console for bored chefs (no, not board chefs.)
Furze built an LCD screen is built into the door, which had to be modified with added shielding to prevent the screen from going all wonky when the microwave is on.
Anyone who didn’t grow up back in the early ’80s doesn’t really understand how awesome it was when video games started hitting the scene. In those days, if we found a quarter in the road, we were in the gas station arcade 60 seconds later.
Bethesda has announced that during the holiday weekend anyone can play the awesome Fallout 4 video game for free. If you haven’t played the game, this is your chance to want Preston Garvey dead along with the rest of us.
This cool Legend of Zelda stained glass light is the perfect way to light up your game room or any room in your house. Just fire up your Nintendo console, turn the other lights out, light a candle or two and play by the light of this simulated stained glass window inspired by The Wind Waker.
If you’ve ever played the video game Octodad, you know how difficult it can be to perform tasks using tentacles. Sure, a real octopus can open a jar with its spindly legs, but you’re not a real octopus.
I’ve used a number of computer mice over the years, from the rudimentary upside-down trackball types of days gone by, to high-tech wireless laser and multitouch mice. They each have had their time in the sun at my desk, but it’s time to say goodbye to all of them now that I’ve found the SteelSeries Rival 700.
When my mom couldn’t see me when I was a kid, you better believe that I gave my brother the finger a lot. I would use the “feather” gesture when she was watching. When mom was nearby but the feather didn’t accurately portray how much I wanted to pummel him at the time.
