    Paper Mario: The Origami King

    So other than the stupid sticker game which just looked horrible(and the reviews seem to agree) I've played all of the main games and enjoyed them. On this though its spin the wheel and either jump or hit with hammer. You can use a power up you can buy or find too. But it seems like you don't...

    Paper Mario: The Origami King

    I picked this up today and was looking forward to it but Nintendo seems to have looked at the glacier pace text moved in Breath of the Donkey bawls and said wait, we can get another 10 hours of gameplay easy making the text even slower. It destroys the game with its slow pace, same with the...

    Microsoft is closing all of its stores

    It wasn't really brand specific other than being windows, at least not the last time I went into one. They sold their surface stuff but also sold higher end notebooks from other vendors and at the time unlike best buy the ones they sold were clean of the extra bloatware a normal big box store pc...

    1990 NINTENDO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS CONSOLE NWC

    pendragon1 so I asked a friend and he said that the NFC carts were started by pressing a button on controller 2. For the local competitions a second controller was plugged in as they just cared about the score but for the big competitions at the end where they had people going side by side this...

    1990 NINTENDO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS CONSOLE NWC

    From memory the rear port was used to reset the consoles at the same time at the start of a round.

    Why does Doom Eternal suck?

    I think it did compared to the 90's doom games. The arena areas were just way too common in the game and pissed me off. The ammo limits seemed over the top forcing you to watch the stupid melee kill animations over and over again. The chainsaw limits bothered me as well. The multiplayer at least...

    Why does Doom Eternal suck?

    I didn't buy it and a bunch of people saying its not as good as doom 2016 makes me happy I didn't as that game was horrible. Doom 2016 was walk around until you get locked in a room, shoot and then do the same stupid melee attack as you ran out of ammo and repeat a few times until you can walk...

    GameStop to Permanently Close Over 300 Stores

    I remember Electronics Boutique being a pretty good smaller game store. Gamestop for as long as I can remember is a place you only go in a real pinch. IE my controller is messing up and I need to get a replacement real quick because I'm trying to play a game with friends. The problem even with...

    ReviewTechUSA SWATTED

    Its pretty easy to do. Many of these youtubers are going to have their channel under a llc or some other registered company. If you can figure out what state they are in(again not hard in many cases) you can look it up on the state corporation commission's website. You will generally see a real...

    Esoteric (rare) hardware from the past

    Took it down and grabbed a pic. A small collection of some of the many styles of logos on the 486. Got two 386 upgrade chips, the sx, sx2, dx, dx2, dx4, and x5 chips covered. The one thing I think I'm really missing is that I thought Harris made like a 33mhz 486 chip but haven't found one.

    Esoteric (rare) hardware from the past

    Not super rare with execption of the UMC 486 in the US but I like my collection of random 486 chips. Can't find a picture of the display case I have them in with others but it always amazed me at how many companies sold 486 cpu's at the time.

    EU votes to have universal mobile device power adapters

    Apple is right, this will stifle innovation. You can look at their own connectors on mobile devices that were better in many ways than the competition(at least when they came out). At least phones are going to have similar power requirements, wait till those idiots want to do it with laptops...
