Gamesave Manager: the Ultimate Save Point

Gamesave Manager: the Ultimate Save Point
One of the few drawbacks of gaming on the PC is that save data are not easily transferable – the files are scattered in different folders and don’t always have the same format, so hunting them one by one can be inconvenient.

My Fireplace for the Wii: Burning Down the House

My Fireplace for the Wii: Burning Down the House
The ESRB’s website has frequently been a source of video game leaks and spoilers, but I don’t know what to make of this. Apparently there’s an upcoming game for the Nintendo Wii in which players tend to a fireplace.

Prince of Parking Lot: Jordan Mechner’S Brother Acting Out Prince’S Moves
Jordan Mechner – creator of classics like Karateka and Prince of Persia, among other things – posted his old journal entries on his website. The journal – which Mechner started in 1985 after graduating from college – tells “how Prince of Persia came to be, and how it almost didn’t.”

Game Boy Advance Sp Gets an Original Gameboy Retrofit

Game Boy Advance Sp Gets an Original Gameboy Retrofit
It’s true that the original Game Boy is a timeless piece of portable video gaming. Heck, I know that I spent countless hours trying to beat my best at Tetris. In this great little hack, the familiar green screen is gone.

The 64-Boy: the Littlest N64 Console

The 64-Boy: the Littlest N64 Console
If you’ve still got an N64, you probably haven’t used it in a while. The age of Nintendo’s 64-bit gaming platform didn’t stop Bentomo from shrinking his N64 into a portable form. I have to say that this build is totally amazing, reminding me of the TurboGrafix-16 portable, the TurboExpress.

Isochron: Like X-Com on Your I-Device

Isochron: Like X-Com on Your I-Device
A lot of fans of the tactical video game X-COM were disappointed, to put it mildly, when 2K Marin announced that they’ll be remaking the cult classic as a First-Person Shooter. If you’re one of those fans, know that the X-COM spirit is still being copied alive, and it’s coming to the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad.

Play NES Games on Your Kindle, Sorta.

Play NES Games on Your Kindle, Sorta.
I wondered how long it would take for someone to hack the Amazon Kindle in order to play games. Unfortunately, from what I’ve seen, the games don’t look all that cool on that monochrome e-ink screen.

South Korean Gamers Get Midnight Ban

South Korean Gamers Get Midnight Ban
It looks like South Koreans won’t be able to play video games during the wee hours of the night. There is going to be an enforced ban, which will start at midnight. The South Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has decided that gaming addiction has gotten to epic levels, so they will be enforcing a ban on online gamers, especially MMOs.

3rd Person Driving in Real Life: a Panoramic View of Failure

3rd Person Driving in Real Life: a Panoramic View of Failure
A lot of gamers – myself included – prefer to use the third-person point of view when driving vehicles in video games. I just find it easier to steer if I can see how far my vehicle is from a turn; in first-person I always end up steering too late.

PS3 Slim Goes Kind of Portable With the Hori Dock

PS3 Slim Goes Kind of Portable With the Hori Dock
If you’ve ever wanted to take your PS3 on the go, this could be the best way to do so. I’ve taken consoles on the road, but it usually involved lugging an LCD display and a bunch of other stuff to make it work.

Pacman the Movie: No Fun and Games

Pacman the Movie: No Fun and Games
So you think Pac-Man likes eating those yellow pellets huh? You think the brightly colored maze and ghosts are cute? Think again! I didn’t know that that yellow wakka wakka wakka-ing mouth is actually a living, breathing person trapped in physical and drug-induced mazes by a cruel man who clearly saw too much of, uhm, Saw!

Ifixit Rips Apart the Nintendo Dsi Xl

Ifixit Rips Apart the Nintendo Dsi Xl
It didn’t take long for those crazy guys at iFixit to tear down a Nintendo DSi XL. Heck, it was only released in the US yesterday! What took them so long? Sure, it was released a few months ago in Japan, but unless you’re a hardcore Nintendo gamer, playing all those games in Japanese doesn’t really interest me much.

Nintendo 3DS: Next Generation of the Ds to Feature Glasses-Free 3d, More Powerful Money-Printing

Nintendo 3DS: Next Generation of the Ds to Feature Glasses-Free 3d, More Powerful Money-Printing
A sneaky press release (pdf, Japanese) reveals that the next version of the Nintendo DS will feature glasses-free 3D. Tentatively called Nintendo 3DS, the device will apparently still be compatible with DS and DSi games.
