Portable DIY gaming units have been popular for a long time, and with the launch of the tiny, wireless-capable Raspberry Pi Zero W, it seems like a great time to get back to making these small handhelds.
Any time someone puts an “H” in front of “what” you know things are getting serious. A hack for the NES Classic Edition gaming system that puts RetroArch on board is certainly serious business for retro gamers.
Lather up and roll a critical hit for hygiene with this Gaming Dice Soap Set. Rub -a-dub-dub, you have an RPG in your tub! This is a gift that keeps on giving. That’s because once you use up the soaps, there are actual D&D dice inside each one.
Way back in the day, my game of choice on the Atari 2600 was Space Invaders. That was about all I wanted to play, with a little Pitfall thrown in the mix. Oddly enough, I don’t recall ever seeing a Space Invaders machine in the arcade back in the day.
It’s probably safe to say that the least liked character in the Fallout 4 realm is Preston Garvey. He’s super annoying. His laser musket is also super lame. I mean there are weapons everywhere and he keeps using a freaking musket you have to crank to load.
I lobbied all summer the year the first Nintendo Entertainment System hit the market to get one for Christmas. I remember the fancy version console with its little robot that moved stuff most of the time selling for about $250, which was a fortune back then.
Gaming is tough work. Whether you are sitting in front of an Xbox One, or taking part in a D&D campaign, nerds work up a serious sweat. That’s why you need a strong deodorant. Plus Five is the “Ultimate Gaming Deodorant,” adding +5 to your Charisma stat.
I have very vivid memories of schlepping around the local Target store back in the ’80s and coming across the Nintendo Entertainment System display with the robot that moved the spinning thingies around to open doors in some lame ass game on the screen.
Razer has been making gaming keyboards as long as some PC gamers have been around. That’s because the standard keyboard that comes with most PCs doesn’t typically work well for the kind of precision and timing you need in gaming.
Back in the ’80s, there were a bunch of places where you could go and play laser tag if you were so inclined. For kids of the future, laser tag will be replaced with sweet virtual and augmented reality games where you can shoot and run until your heart’s content.
It’s way too hot in Texas to do much of anything outside right now. It’s been 105ºF with the heat index each day this week and the weekend will be even hotter. That means if you want to go out hunting Pokémon, you better do it at night when it’s a cooler 80ºF, but you’ll still enjoy the lovely 98% humidity.
Remember that Hyperkin Smart Boy case thingy that we saw last year? It was a case that slid onto an iPhone and turned it into a GameBoy from the Nintendo days. Turns out it was originally an April Fool’s joke, but enough interest was there that Hyperkin decided to build it.
People have gone nuts over Overwatch, and with good reason. Any time a game proves to be this popular, you can count on some epic cosplay showing up with people dressed up like the characters. Sometimes the cosplay isn’t that great, but every now and again you get a pro cosplayer, and it’s hard to tell if you are looking at a real person or a screenshot from the game.
