Wearewater? More Like Wearetheeighties.
UK alt band, WeAreWater might sound a bit like Radiohead, but their video looks like something more appropros of a band with a name like Atari Teenage Riot. Their new music video for “Glass”, by Seven/Seven Productions is inspired by a number of classic eighties video games including Space Invaders, Pac Man, Pitfall, Donkey Kong, Pong and more.

Coleco Handheld Plays Sega Classics

Coleco Handheld Plays Sega Classics
It seems strange to me that a device called the “Coleco Sonic” would play classic SEGA games, but that’s just what this little portable system does. Available for pre-order now from Target, the $49.99 Coleco Sonic handheld features 20 classic SEGA titles from the old 8-bit and Game Gear era, including: Sonic Drift 2 Sonic Triple Trouble Alex Kidd in High Tech World Alex Kidd in Miracle World Altered Beast Assault City Astro Warrior Aztec Adventure Bomber Raid Columns Ecco II: The Tides of Time Fantasy Zone Fantasy Zone: The Maze Global Defense Kung Fu Kid The Ninja Penguin Land Quartet Snail Maze Super Columns With the Coleco/SEGA branding weirdness going on, I find it especially ironic that the most comprehensive details can be found in the AtariAge forums.

Ben Heck’s Latest Mod: Atari Jaguar Portable

Ben Heck’s Latest Mod: Atari Jaguar Portable
I’m a big fan of Ben Heck’s amazing console mod projects, and this one is no different. Ben’s latest challenge: turn an Atari Jaguar console into a portable. As usual, the result is quite stunning. He managed to cram the entire system into a box about 1-inch thick with a built-in LCD panel and the ability to run it off of a (somewhat unwieldy) battery pack.

Import Site Lik-Sang Killed by Sony’s Lawyers
Lik-Sang, one of my favorite places for imported game systems and accessories from the Far East has been unexpectedly shut down as a result of increasing pressure from pending litigation from Sony. The nail in the coffin appears to be a recent judgment that ruled their sale of PSP consoles from Asia to Europe was unlawful.

The Only Reason to Play Sim Games

The Only Reason to Play Sim Games

Rejected Wii Game Concepts

With all the ridiculous looking gameplay videos we’ve seen coming out for the new Nintendo Wii, I thought you might find this amusing: I can’t decide whether I like the tea time or the tattoo artist game better.

Playstation 3 Model Comparison

Playstation 3 Model Comparison
Pictures of the 20GB and 60GB models of Sony’s Playstation 3 console have surfaced and we can finally see the differences between the two models. While the 20GB model features a completely black case, the 60GB model features some (IMHO, tacky) chrome accents.

Sony Too Cheap to Bundle Hdmi Cable With PS3

Sony Too Cheap to Bundle Hdmi Cable With PS3
According to this post over at Kotaku, the Sony Playstation 3 will only include a crappy composite video cable when it’s released in Japan. Apparently, even though the Playstation 3 is all about high definition gameplay and movies, you’re expected to go spend even more money to get it to output onto anything other than a crummy old TV.
