The question machine has plunked a spinning, golden question in front of me: Firstly, I must warn you: by asking this question you are raising one of the most fervent religious battles of our time. The religiosity of the Sony-Nintendo-Microsoft console fanboy battle makes Christianity vs. Islam look like an angry game of mini golf. [...]
The Nintendo DSi might look like an evolution on the previous DS console, but it is more like a revolution. The console is almost indistinguishable from the previous model (click on the image to see a comparison). By removing the Gameboy Advance game slot, Nintendo has been able to slim the console down by a [...]
Reviewing a bunch of video games for Christmas gifts.
Microsoft have come out and announced that XNA developers can build games for second-gen Zunes. Finally a use for the Wifi in the Zune instead of the crappy ‘Social’ and wireless syncing. Cesar at ZuneInsider adds some clarity: Here’s an important point of clarification: The announcements at GDC are about the new XNA Game Studio [...]
There is so much for the Wii owner to be excited about from E3.? I hear some grumblings about there be no spectacular “core” games, but how can you not wet yourself about the following: Super Mario Galaxy? (with funky? two player co-op) Mario Kart Wii (with online play) Umbrella Chronicles (a basic shootemup) Wii [...]
If there was one way in which that the original XBox totally dominated the otherwise indomitable PS2, it was XBox Live!. My own personal experiences with Live! have been documented herein, with a fair summary being “it rocks”. It has been a basic assumption on my part that Sony would take a katana to Live! [...]
Wow. That poor little XBox 360 is being squashed by the giant behemoth of a PS3. I never thought I’d be saying that. Here’s hoping that the PS3 has its power converter built in, because if users have to stow a giant power brick as well as this mega-console, Sony is going to get some [...]
I’ve just thrown down for a new graphics card: the XFX NVidia 7900GT, and it rocks. I was tossing around the idea of a cheaper upgrade – expanding my current 6600GT to a dual 6600GT SLI setup – but was swayed by the excellent benchmarks and overclockability of the 7900GT. It saddens me that I’ve [...]
Things just got a whole heap more muddy in the battle for next-gen console supremacy. Despite falling squarely in the XBox fanboy camp, I had an inkling that Sony would kick some ass with their PS3, especially over the full lifecycle, with more grunt being discovered under the Cell architecture as developers got to grips [...]
If Nintendo were intending to spark a worldwide pun competition, they seem to have hit the nail right between the eyes with Wii. Or a stream of Wii as the case may be?
