That copy of Athena that you couldn’t pawn off finally has a purpose. The geek geniuses at the Unconventional Hacker have taken 20+ year old technology–the NES cart–gutted it, and replaced the innards with a Belkin wireless router. But you can’t simply cram a wireless card into a cartridge; some soldering rewiring is required. Thankfully, those same...

on Sat, Nov 6, 2010 | By Laurie-Anne Vazquez

There have been many attempts to create a motion-sensing controller over the years: The UForce, Roll ‘n Rocker, SEGA Activator, Power Glove. All of them failed due to cumbersome add-ons and shoddy control. With Kinect for Xbox 360, gamers have the first full-body motion-sensing controller that actually lets them cut the cord.

8-bit Antoine Dodson makes you run ‘n tell that

8-bit Antoine Dodson

  Internet memes are generally good for a chuckle or two during their initial buzz, but like “Chocolate Rain” and “Double Rainbow,” I just can’t get enough of “Bedroom Intruder Song”.

on Sat, Oct 30, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

Halloween’s arrival at the tail end of the month, the releases of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Haunted House, and our very own look at video game vampires has brought grim shadows to the gray matter–death particularly. This could very well venture into my own personal demons of growing older, but I’ll keep the opines focused on the topic at hand: death...
