    Being a tech junkie, I know first hand how fast the market progresses. What was new only a few months to few years ago is now old, ancient, and archaic. The video game industry is like the bigger market as a whole, a pretty fast mover. Games are constantly being released, pushing the graphical boundaries of what we thought was the upper limit. But just how old is old and how new is new? According to EA, the "old" line starts back in '09. Like playing FIFA '07, Nascar '09, Madden '09, or ...
  • Tuper Tario Tros. is Super Mario reborn. (Hope you’re up for a challenge…)

    Tuper Tario Tros? Is there such a thing? Why yes, yes there is. At first it may seem stupid and unoriginal. And I'll agree, the title fits that bill. But after playing the game for even just a few minutes has created yet another addicting game I must now frequent at least a few times a week. The concept of the game is your classic Super Mario Brothers game with Tetris thrown in. Now that is original and unique to say the least if not a bit odd. When you start out, you do the whole sid...
  • Feel like playing Tekken 3 on an HD2? Well, now you can.

    Smartphones are inching closer and closer to replacing computers in our daily routine. Some would argue this or claim to still prefer a bigger monitor and such. For that, I'd say ok, at the very least, smartphones are starting to encroach on netbook territory. There, happy? Emulators are a geeks best friend. They allow us to play games/ROMs of our favorite games on devices that the console manufacturers/developers won't allow us to or are too ill equipped to support the necessary changes....

    If you could reach into your TV screen, pick up Mario and bite of his head, would you? Too graphic perhaps? What about one of those magical mushrooms always running around? I mean, a little trip via some organic fungus never hurt anyone too bad right? If such things ping your brain every night as you lie awake in bed, boy have I got a treat (literally) for you. Mario Candies. Thanks to Birthday Express (Mushroom and Gold Star candies) and BigBadToyStore (Question Mark Block candies), the ...
  • Charge your iPhone like it’s 1984 with the NES Gun iPhone dock

    Back in 1984, cellphones were at their most primitive stages. They weren't cool looking, didn't have fancy shmancy processors like Snapdragon, and most of all, wouldn't even fit in a small to medium sized bag. In the current year of 2009, cellphones/smartphones are now taking over more aspects of our lives as they become miniature computers. Sometimes though it's fun to recapture those "glory days" back when technology was ugly and unsightly. The current high fashion gadget as most would...
  • SNES Controller becomes self sufficient gaming platform…

    Posted December 22nd, 2009 at 10:25 am
    ROM's are a geeks best friend. Today apparently they seem to be a hot topic... Ever want to carry a library of ROM's in a convenient, stylish, and portable form factor that you can take with you from computer-to-computer? The SNES controller above had the guts removed and replaced with the contents of a flash drive as well as a USB hub. The results is a controller that houses all the ROM's you could ever want combined with a single cable allowing you to hook up and play said ROM's on any c...
  • PSP-4000: Accidental slip or common marketing snafu?
    by Mike
    Posted December 21st, 2009 at 11:43 am
    Like any gadget loving person, I constantly comb through all corners of the web hoping to find the latest dirt on private information that the companies involve don't want to be So you can understand some piqued interest when stumbling upon an ad that mentions "PSP-4000 support". Is it for real or is it nothing more than a small oversight that somehow made it's way to print? A next-gen PSP has been rumored for several months. Lest we not forget the utter failure and d...
  • The GameBoy Calculator: Fooling teachers of all subjects since 2009.
    by Mike
    Posted December 18th, 2009 at 1:14 pm
    Math is far and wide my least favored subject. But we've gone over that before many, many times. So instead of complaining about my number crunching hatred, I'll share with you one way to ignore it altogether, fooling your teachers and pleasing your soul. The GameBoy Calculator is one of those inventions we all wished for as school children. School is rarely "fun" in the purest sense of the word. Making our days go quicker by filling them with some super cool retro gaming would certainl...
  • Watch Blu-rays and play your Xbox 360/PS3 on the new 27″ iMac

    Increasing reports of broken, defective, and all out f'd up 27" iMac display problems aside, sometimes we just want to use that 2560 x 1440 of super hi-def goodness for things other than your typical computing needs. For starters, Blu-ray on such a screen would be a great start. Don't have a hi-def TV or are tired of looking at two different screens -- one for TV one for computing? Thankfully Apogee will soon be debuting their own HDMI to mDP adapter that will allow you oh so lucky 27" iMac u...
  • Gaming Consoles on the way out. Mobile devices to replace big, bulky units in as little as 5 years?
    by Mike
    Posted December 15th, 2009 at 3:35 pm
    Are gaming consoles, the very thing that has kept many a geek enthralled for years, on the way out? Is their relevance slowly disappearing as mobile devices become more and more powerful with scalable options and outputs that are ever increasing? To highlight this simple though looming question, look at the iPhone. While on the device itself the hardware isn't too spectacular compared to current gaming champs such as the Xbox 360 and PS3, the iPhone is quickly pushing the idea of mobile gam...
  • Millennium Falcon memorabilia taking over the bedroom. Sleep quarters first to go, Xbox closely follows…or Xbox…

    The Millennium Falcon Bed may have been the talk of the town yesterday, but even a mere 24 hours into the past can now be considered old, washed up news. You needn't worry however as there is plenty to talk about today. The bed mentioned above is a novel idea however, not everyone wants to or likes to spend too much time sleeping. You know what they say -- plenty of time to sleep when you're dead...right? Anyway, instead of a modded bed, how about another modded Xbox? Why December is becomi...
  • Microsoft returns “serviced” Xbox 360 with a heavily modded case…

    In our day and age, no one ever wants to recycle, use someone else's old stuff, or even take a refurb. Sure doing so reduces on various planet sucking resources but that's not what anyone cares about. God forbid their *insert product here* have a hairline scratch that somehow takes away from the overall enjoyment. Out of nowhere rant aside, Gizmodo reader Nic H sent in pictures claiming to be a new repair method being explored by Microsoft. Obviously his model is a refurb as they don't c...
