How to use a US PSN account on an Asian PlayStation TV

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m a proud owner of an Asian PlayStation TV unit. It was a birthday gift, thanks to family finding out Play-Asia has new models for $59.99 each. It was even more welcome because firmware 3.35 allows people with a foreign PlayStation TV to use their North American accounts with it. It’s more »

Asian PlayStation TV Unboxing

For those of you not in the know, my birthday was this past weekend, and one of my gifts was the newly discounted PlayStation TV. Not the one Sony recently released in the United States. No, a member of my family capitalized on the $59.99 Play-Asia sale to import a Japanese PlayStation TV for me. more »

Even Mike Tyson Can’t Beat Mike Tyson in Punch-Out

When I was growing up, Punch-Out was one of my favorite games. Yes, in a lot of ways it was a celebration of racism, but it was still one of the best boxing games ever made. Even today, I have the game, and I’ll sometimes boot it up when I’m feeling the need to trounce more »

Google Nexus Player is another microconsole we don’t want

I like the idea of Android microconsoles. I have an Ouya that I play at least once a week, and I love its portability, the ease with which I can sideload apps, and the different gaming experiences I have on it as opposed to my PS4 and Wii U. Despite that love, I know how more »

Android convergence continues with Google Nexus Player

The idea of “convergence” is a funny thing, given how often companies have gotten it wrong. When the idea was popularized back in the ‘90s, everyone assumed that all entertainment and information functions would naturally “converge” on the television, at that time the center of any media-consuming household. After all, people already watched live programming, more »

My video game prowess used to earn me girlfriends

When I was much younger, the hardest video game in my library was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the . To this day, some people claim it was impossible to beat, but I know better. I know it wasn’t impossible because I was at an age where beating it meant I had a girlfriend. I’m more »

Grant Kirkhope put hours of Banjo-Kazooie music on Bandcamp

Grant Kirkhope is a cool guy. I met him once, briefly. He’s been to MAGfest a few times and I was there for his first panel there. I got a picture with him (one I refuse to show as at the time I was a goofy young nerd and dressed the part accordingly), and told more »

The Intellivision Flashback and Colecovision Flashback look amazing

I saw AtGames’ Intellivision Flashback and Colecovision Flashback systems in a Toys R Us the other day, and I’ve got to say, we’re in trouble. These things look really cool. I mean, they look like a perfect nostalgia trip. Not to mention, the fact that they’re in stores now, ready for the holiday season, makes more »

10 Games you need to play on the PlayStation TV

The PlayStation TV is coming out on October 14, 2014, and this micro-console needs to be on the wishlists of everyone with a PlayStation Plus subscription and spare DualShock 3 lying around. You may have passed on the Vita bandwagon for “reasons,” but now is your chance. The PlayStation TV won’t play every Vita game, more »

Virtuix Omni might be the future of VR

It’s obviously no secret that I’m a fan of virtual reality. It stems from my ongoing love affair with anime like .Hack and Sword Art Online. I dream for the days when we can be fully immersed in video games. Hopefully that immersion doesn’t end badly like it did in .Hack or SAO, but that’s more »

5 Simpsons games to play during the FXX marathon

When you try to think of good licensed games, The Simpsons aren’t really the property that floats to the top of your head. Hell, there are probably at least half a dozen games based on some facet of the Simpsons you haven’t even heard of. The rabbit hole for such a huge cash cow runs more »

Batman Will Defeat Superman In Dawn Of Justice

While most superhero fans are waiting with baited breath and anxiousness for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, I decided to take a look back at what I believe will be the deciding factor when DC’s legendary heroes collide in Zack Snyder’s much anticipated 2016 movie. “But Quinn, you ridiculously scruffy man-nerd, you’re supposed to more »
