  • NES Controller Soap reeks of Mtn. Dew. Gamers flock to shower in mass numbers…

    **Disclamier: I love gamers. I am a gamer. Some of us stink. Get this soap. Do you have a quiet, unsociable cousin who smells like BO and spoils away in the basement for hours on end? Why does he smell? There's no shower in the bathroom and you know he's not coming up anytime soon. Besides, why shower if you're not going out? Save water and gain more play time. Perfect! Jokes aside, (I know not every gamer smells like BO and lives in a basement -- come one, not everyone is fortun...
  • In Brazil, violent video games are bad. Violent books, movies, advertisements all ok.

    I'll admit, there are some pretty sick, twisted, and downright disturbing games out there. But that's just the thing -- they're games. Games are meant to take you into a realm of fantasy. A place outside of laws, science, and yes, even morals. Unfortunately as of late, video games such as Grand Theft Auto and Modern Warfare 2 have been getting a bad rep for their unlawful plots and seemingly sinister undertones. Several countries are now moving to enact laws that would ban violent video gam...
  • ZooZen Xbox 360 case turns your sleek, white gaming machine into a sleek, black brick.

    Seeing the word "brick" in the title should frighten you. While often used to depict something unsightly or aesthetically unappetizing, the ZooZen Xbox 360 case is actually pretty darn nice to look at. What exactly is the ZooZen 360 case? Well -- it's a case that snaps all around your Xbox 360. It's shiny, black, and considerably increases your 360's footprint. But it isn't all just about looks. ZooZen went ahead and stuffed a few extra cooling fins inside for good measure. Now that Micro...

    I'll admit that my time is extremely precious. Between work, blogging on two sites, and college, any spare time I may have is used for simple tasks such as eating, going to the bathroom, and when the mood strikes me, taking a shower (just kidding, I'm much cleaner than that.) But every now and then I do manage to break away from the daily grind and get in some good 'ol gaming time. While first person shooters are one of my old favorites, I find as of late that I'm being more drawn to racing...
  • EA destroys Battlefield: Heroes with good ‘ol fashioned greed.

    Online gaming is one of those things that can gain quite a loyal following. Look no further than WoW (World of Warcraft). WoW has one of the most devout user bases I've experienced in my short 22 years of life. But WoW isn't everyone's cup of tea. For those looking for a tad more variety and more casual game play (read: you don't have to become completely entrenched), a worthy option was Battlefield: Heroes by EA. It is a great online shooter/war game that is basically a more realistic and ...
  • Shocker: Nokia gets turtle shelled for showing off SNES emulator on N900. Bigger Shocker: Why hasn’t Nintendo monetized the ROM business?
    by Mike
    Posted December 1st, 2009 at 10:00 am
    Perhaps it was a defiant "FU" to IP law. It could have been a simple mistake. Whatever it was, the showcasing of an SNES emulator and ROM running on the N900 belonging to Urho Konttori, Product Manager of Nokia, was begging for trouble from the start. And like clockwork, Nintendo has sent the legal hounds on Nokia to investigate how and why such thing happened. Nintendo voices the same opinion that many game developers and companies voice: that emulators and ROM's are evil, sinister, things ...
  • Atari offers up free browser based classic gaming on new site.

    Posted November 24th, 2009 at 6:16 am
    When looking for new and innovative ways to slaughter time, games often enter the foray. But such treats in life often come with some sort of paywall. There are tons of websites that do offer up free gaming. But could one ever strike a cord as personal as an Atari gaming site? If you'd like to test that theory for yourself, head on over to Atari's new site which offers up some pretty sweet features, namely free browser based games of classic Atari originals. What originals exactly? I mean,...
  • Emergency warnings coming to New York Xbox Live users.

    If you're in the heat of the battle within a Halo/Modern Warfare 2/GTA mission on your Xbox and are completely oblivious to any and all threats in the immediate reality surrounding you, a new mandatory warning system coming to New Yorkers will benefit you greatly. The New York Emergency Management Office will soon start issue warning messages via Xbox Live. Messages such as Tornado, flood, thunderstorm, amber alert, etc. will come through the Xbox Live channel into your humble abode alerting t...
  • Brazilians finally get *official* access to Playstation2
    by Mike
    Posted November 21st, 2009 at 10:17 am
    Here in the states we have the top pickins of some of the finest examples of gaming technology in the world. With the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 as prime examples of console gaming and of course any tricked out gaming rig taking the PC gaming spot. But there are places that aren't quite as lucky. Take for instance Brazil which just three days ago (November 18th, 2009) received official means to sell the Playstation 2. Yes, that's a 2 and not a 3. If you don't remember, the Playstation 2 was...
  • Class action lawsuit filed by banned Xbox modders
    by Mike
    Posted November 20th, 2009 at 4:25 am
    "Fighting the good fight" is a term that we often hear used to describe a seemingly insurmountable foe, force, or object. The term ftgf instills in us that while it may not be the easiest or most popular choice at any given moment, it is the "right" thing to do. So what would you call it when a group of pissed off banned Xbox modders joins together to file a class action lawsuit against Microsoft for banning them? Stupid. As much as I support hacking and modding your own personal hardware, f...
  • Free Xbox Live Gold service for Silver members.
    by Mike
    Posted November 18th, 2009 at 8:00 am
    If you own an Xbox 360, chances are you more than likely have an Xbox Live gold account giving you free reign on Xbox Live. Without Live, the 360 is still good machine though significantly less desirable in my opinion. Whether the sinking economy stole your Xbox Live money or you simply haven't ponied up the $50/year entrance fee because you're "just not sure" it's worth it, we can all agree that when someone offers you anything for free, you should generally take it. For European Xbox own...
  • The magical shape-shifting laptop-turned-Xbox 360. Brought to you by Geek Squad.

    Even though we in the tech circle pan Geek Squad fairly frequently, they do produce some useful entertainment from time to time. Mind you, this "entertainment" often comes at the expense of some poor saps sanity. But I digress. Today's Geek Squad face palm of the day comes from Consumerist reader "Taylor". After a two week wait with no end in sight, Taylor ventured to Geek Squad's website and entered his service number. Little did he know a magical event was about to unfold before his eyes....
