Pre-order Opens For Atari Modern Day Connected Game Console, Atari VCS

Lo and behold. Atari is finally getting back into the game that it had once rein supreme. Now, please don’t ask why we have missed the announcement last year, but anyways, what matters here is, it is now a reality called Atari VCS. VCS here is, of course, the moniker once associated with the classic Atari 2600, which is also the design this modern day Atari console drew its inspiration from and hence, the delightful, retro-licious look.

Nintendo Poké Ball Plus Lets You Catch Pokémon Like It Was Meant To Be

Nintendo has announced a new Nintendo Switch accessory that will boost the realism of Pokémon experience. Meet the Poké Ball Plus, an actual Poké Ball that lets you catch Pokémon like it was meant to be, i.e. throwing it at the Pokémon and not swiping your finger on a touch display. But that is as far as realism goes. The truth is, you are not going to hurl this precious little ball and expecting it not to break. It will. That’s why, like any motion controller, it comes with a hand strap, so won’t actually crack your very expensive flat TV when you use it on the new Nintendo Switch Pokémon games (such as Let’s Go Pikachu! and Let’s Go Eevee!) which it also works with.

ColorWare Adds A Nostalgic Feel To Joy-Cons And Pro Controller

Last August, we were enamored by ColorWare’s Joy-Cons Classic, the Joy-Con controllers for Nintendo Switch that has been customized with to look like the classic NES console. All 25 sets were swiftly snapped up and if you missed it, fret not, cos’ ColorWare has brought it back. Well, kind of… The Joy-Cons 8-bit, as it is called, is not quite the Joy-Cons Classic. It is close enough though, sporting a Nintendo gray and black design with hints of red on the ABXY buttons. Continue reading ColorWare Adds A Nostalgic Feel To Joy-Cons And Pro Controller

Jigglypuff Game Controller Looks Like The Result Of A Botched Teleportation

If you have some idea how teleportation works in theory, you will know the devastating consequences if the object in transit does not form as it should on the receiving end. Well, the custom Jigglypuff GameCube Game Controller you see here looks like the Pokemon monster had a botched teleportation. All hideous and grotesque as a result. I don’t know what went through the mind of the person who conceived this monstrosity. I mean, seriously, just look at the side-by-side comparison of the original adorable Jigglypuff (before she gets really pissed, obviously) and the product that arrived at the other end of the teleportation device. Continue reading Jigglypuff Game Controller Looks Like The Result Of A Botched Teleportation

Someone Turned A GameCube Into A Dock For Nintendo Switch

Oh, look, someone had made two much loved Nintendo come together as one. Meet the GameCube Dock for Nintendo Switch, a lovely hack/mod executed beautifully by YouTuber Rated-e Mods, AKA Dorison Hugo. In a video posted four days ago, Rated-e Mods, with the help of a smooth voice over that sounds those you will heard in an infomercial program, show you how it is done. The video is fairly long running over 18 minutes and so, you can expect a lot of details which I will not be regurgitating here. It just makes no sense. I am no pro. Rated-e Mod is.

Here’s An iPhone Case That Is Also A Functional Game Boy Gaming Device

Remember the Smartboy? The April’s Fool joke gadget accessory from Hyperkin that turned into a real product, allowing you to relive your Game Boy days right on your smartphone? Well, here’s another. Officially known as Wanle Gamers Console for iPhone (though we’d call it Wanle Functional Game Boy Case for iPhone), it is a tad different from Hyperkin’s dock-style accessory. Wanle’s iteration is literally a case that protects your iPhone, while offering access to all ports and buttons, and it does not rely on your smartphone to let you play the included Game Boy titles.

ICAROS Is A Simulator That Combines Fitness With Gaming Via Virtual Reality

Until Wii came along, the idea of video gaming is akin to gluttony. Except in gaming, you don’t devour food, well, maybe not as much. Certainly, you won’t be jamming your guts with food beyond its capacity. In other words, you get no exercise, except for your fingers and that obviously, is very unhealthy and not desirable. But with the ICAROS, gaming becomes so much more. ICAROS is like a gaming simulator of sort, with virtual reality in the mix. Instead of letting your fingers do all the legwork, so to speak, ICAROS requires your entire body to work to play the game.

LUCI To Showcase immers “Immersion-on-Demand” VR With 3,000+ PPI At CES

Up to this point, we have accepted that virtual reality equals to a block of gadget slapped across our eyes, but really, that need not be the case, not if LUCI can help it. Introducing the LUCI immers Immersion-on-Demand VR Headset. OK. Maybe it does not look like one (a headset). It is more like glasses. In fact, LUCI did not specifically said that it is a headset, neither did it say it is a pair of goggles or glasses; it is just Immersion-on-Demand. That is. In a way, a weighty headset makes you remember that you are not as immersive as it should, but with the LUCI immers it is lightweight enough (that’s mere 185g, btw) to make you forget that you have a gadget across your eyes.
