Why Mobiles and Tablets haven’t quite reached gaming yet (or why despite the bloom of mobile gaming, new consoles keep coming)

 

image

You know what? As you’ve seen already, I love gaming. No matter the console, the platform or the shape of the device that runs games, I just love them.

But after MANY hours playing games on my iPod Touch and my Motorola XooM tablet, I can’t help but think that those experiences feel more empty than my DS and 3DS could offer. Hell, after a full hour of Infinity Sword 2, I had the URGE to play something at one of my consoles. Anything on any console. Even PC!

Cheap-o-matic review: The Atari Flashback 3

IMG_20121024_144906

I don’t know about you, but I love the Atari 2600 (or CVS).

Sure, it’s old and it’s graphics are primitive and the sound might cause your inner ear to bleed, but it’s charm is undeniable. That’s why ATARI and the seemlessly “queen of licenced clones” AtGames released the third installment of Atari Flashback.

Wow. I’m on Reddit?

Yeah. Even though I never thought this blog would be noticed, it somehow hit Reddit. Well, the “interwebz” are kind of a small place. The article in question is “10 fun facts about the Dreamcast for new and casual gamers”. The bad thing, the article turned out to have many inaccuracies. The good thing, some interesting stuff was said at the comments from really descent readers.

So, Those guys deserve a blog post.

Review a bad game day: Oneecanbara Bikini Samurai Squad

Ah industry of Video Games. The joys you give to us when you spout shit our way and expect to sell just because there are boobs slapped over. I mean, really, we all enjoy boobs, ninjas, pirates, robots and other generic geek friendly themes, but things Like Oneechanbara Bikini Samurai Squad are just shameless.

Why do we love retro games?

image

I was born in 1986. That means that I grew up during the 90’s and passed my puberty in early 00’s. During that time, a lot of great games released on the 16-bit and I got a good taste on what was going on on 8-bit era in retrospective. Yeah. A lot of great games. Or were they?

Will the current-gen consoles be collectable?

You know, nothing makes me more happy than getting old relics of my favorite thing: Video Games. I’m not a big-time collector due to lack of space/money/time but I do my best to get everything I would like to play, along with the original hardware and the nice bells and whistles I want to own. But, how about the consoles today? Will they be as valued and satisfying to collect 10 years from now?

Remembering: 8 awesome facts about EEEpc 701 and why the Netbook market failed.

Ah my first EEEpc. That little fellow is still around. I don’t need it that much anymore, but it’s still a toy-like netbook that impresses with its mignon appearence and the geeky feel. It pretty much defined the term “netbook” that many netbooks since have betrayed and caused their market to flop.
