This Atari 2600 Handheld Brings The Woodgrain

This Atari 2600 Handheld Brings The Woodgrain
Woodgrain. There was a time when all of our coolest gadgets (and station wagons) were covered in this fake veneer. I for one, think it looks awesome and wish everything from our phones to our computers was still covered in the stuff. Sadly, no gadget maker seems to appreciate this…

Mattel Pocket Football and Basketball Shrink Down to Keychain Size

Mattel Pocket Football and Basketball Shrink Down to Keychain Size
When I was a kid, I used to play the heck out of that Mattel Pocket Football game. I always sucked at kicking, but I was quite adept at running down the field fast as hell. Between that and Track and Field is where I developed all of my button-mashing…

Hyperkin Ultra GB: An Aluminum Game Boy Classic

Hyperkin Ultra GB: An Aluminum Game Boy Classic
Nostalgia among gaming nerds is big business. The NES and SNES Classic Edition retro consoles are still selling out. Obviously a Game Boy Classic Edition must be on the way from Nintendo, right? Maybe, but Hyperkin is working on its own remake and beating them to the punch. The Hyperkin…

Mattel Classic Retro Sports Games Still Suck

Mattel Classic Retro Sports Games Still Suck
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. For some of my early…

Nintendo 2DS XL Is for Gamers Who Don’t Need No Stinkin’ 3D
I’ve never really had a problem watching 3D movies in the theater with nausea or tired eyes. I can’t say the same about the 3DS that my son had. The top screen on that portable literally made my eyes cross and I hated it. He did too, so we traded…
