Windows Phone 7 + Kinect Could Bring Exciting New Gameplay

Windows Phone 7 + Kinect Could Bring Exciting New Gameplay
Frankly, I haven’t been all that impressed by Windows phones over the years. Even with the improvements in Windows Phone 7, I feel like the platform is a day late and a dollar short in comparison with Android and iOS.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 vs. Guitar Hero

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 vs. Guitar Hero
In case you didn’t hear it this week, the Guitar Hero franchise is no longer. In tribute to their fallen gaming comrades, the guys over at Capcom decided to pay tribute to the game with a little game of their own – Marvel vs.

iControlPad BT Adds Real Gamepad and Buttons to the iPhone

iControlPad BT Adds Real Gamepad and Buttons to the iPhone
I will readily admit that I like to play games on my iPhone. I also admit that I will steer away from any game that doesn’t use normal touch and gesture control. If I have to use those fake on-screen joysticks I won’t play the game.

Razer Onza Xbox 360 Controllers Pre-Orders Come and Go in a Blink
I am a big fan of Razer gear, and have played with more than my share of Razer PC gaming keyboards and mice over the years. But Razer has always been a PC gaming company in my mind.

Fling iPad Joystick Adds Tactile Feedback to iPad Games

Fling iPad Joystick Adds Tactile Feedback to iPad Games
I love to play games on my iPad, but I have to say that with games that use a virtual on-screen joystick, I really miss the feeling of a true analog stick. Well, thanks to this new gadget, that problem has come to an end.

Fanatac Porsche 911 GT2 Racing Wheel perfect for Gran Turismo
My son doesn’t know it yet, but he is getting Gran Turismo 5 for Christmas. I love this age, he likes the same games I do so a gift for him is really a gift for me.

The Ultimate NES Controller Coffee Table

The Ultimate NES Controller Coffee Table
Way back in 2008, I featured a coffee table that looked a heck of a lot like a giant Nintendo NES controller. The thing was used for storage and actually worked as a controller for an NES console.

Controlbot4000 T-Shirt: Atari Legs and Nintendo Arms

Controlbot4000 T-Shirt: Atari Legs and Nintendo Arms
The funny thing about this t-shirt design is that I actually think I’ve owned every single one of these video game controllers at some point in my life. Frankly, I was never a big fan of the Nintendo 64’s mutant controller, but the classic Atari joystick stumps that ControlBot stands on and the PS3 dualshock head are some of my faves.

Kinect Nintendo Controller Hack – Kinectendo!

Kinect Nintendo Controller Hack – Kinectendo!
Kinect hacker Yankeyan is at it again. Last time, he made a lightsaber with his Kinect. This time, he’s playing Super Mario Bros. – as Mario. By taking his physical movements and converting them into running and jumping movements for Mario, he’s managed to create the first controller-free version of the game that I’ve seen.

Razer Ships Epic TRON Gaming Mouse

Razer Ships Epic TRON Gaming Mouse
The Razer TRON gaming mouse is packed so full of win I might choke. I mean, I like PC gaming, I like Razer, I like TRON, it’s a trifecta of geeky nirvana for me. If you feel the same way, you will be tickled to death to hear than the mouse is now shipping after we first laid eyes on the thing back in June.

Razer and Belkin Team Up for Nostromo Gaming Keypad
Razer and Belkin have teamed up to resurrect a gaming icon from days gone by. The two companies have unveiled an updated version of the Nostromo gaming keypad. I had one of those things years ago and it was a good way to shed the keyboard and have less space taken up on your desk.

Fender Outs Rock Band 3 Stratocaster Controller With Real Strings
I know I’m not the only one who has been jamming to a tune on Rock Band and thought I could probably play the real guitar that good too if it were a game. Squire is a Fender brand and the company is famous for the Stratocaster line of guitars.

NES Controller Chair Also Good for Ab Workouts

NES Controller Chair Also Good for Ab Workouts
The sharp eyes over at GameSniped spotted another rare gem at eBay. If you still have your NES console and a couple of driving or flying games, dust ’em off and bid for the Video Game Super Chair controller.
