New Nintendo 3DS Review: A Terrible Name For A Worthy Successor

Portable gaming is Nintendo’s wheelhouse: it pioneered the category with the Game Boy, reinvented it with the Nintendo DS, and uses its current generation, the Nintendo 3DS, to help pay the bills in the wake of underwhelming Wii U sales. Starting today, you can buy the company’s latest gaming handheld: The New Nintendo 3DS. It’s better than it sounds.

Maybe the reason you find it so hard to crawl out of bed in the morning is your uninspired alarm clock?

I Can't Wait To Stream Xbox Games To My Laptop

At its big Windows 10 event today, Microsoft talked about its universal apps, Windows 10 for phones, and a big crazy Surface TV thing. But forget all that.

These Drawings Were Made By The Bad Guys In Legend Of Zelda

The other day I was playing SNES on an emulator and it suddenly struck me: The incredible amount of work that went into creating every single tiny box of light on that screen. It sounds like a simple point, but less so when you glimpse the maths and complexity behind video games in action.


8-Bit Guardians Of The Galaxy Game Is 2x Retro Fun

Video: Here’s CineFix’s latest creation: the 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy in 8-bit.
