If you’re on this blog, I’m guessing you love video games. And you should, they’re awesome. But I’m also guessing your interest is deeper than the average “I buy Madden and CoD every year!” gamer. In this series of articles, I’m going to be going “under the hood,” so to speak, and writing about the challenges that game/ engine/ hardware developers face when making games, how they’ve addressed them over time, and what the future looks like. Today’s subject: water.

If you’re wondering what this is all about, it is yet another article series from yours truly. It is for those who have been living under a rock for the past week, this is the recent news in gaming, tech, and everything else in the past week! Read the rest of this entry »
Leaked reports from the NPD Group (a market research company covering, among other industries, the video games market) indicate that the Vita has sold about 33’000 units last month in the US, as reported by ArsTechnica.
By comparison, the 3DS reportedly sold about 7 times this amount.
The Android console OUYA, which I backed almost a year ago, progressively started shipping to the backers recently. Some of the kickstarter units have already been shipped, and ended up in the hands of popular “tech” websites such as CNET, Engadget, or The Verge, who all wrote reviews about it. Although most of these sites were very clear about the fact that they were reviewing an “early” product, the average-to-very-bad feeling that got out of these reviews certainly impacted lots of potential buyers.
The article on The Verge in particular, was especially harsh. Although the review’s content itself seems fair, the final mark (which is what will stick in people’s mind) of 3.5 out of 10 is the equivalent of a nail in the coffin for such a young company.
Still on a lower firmware and don’t want to update? Here is a comprehensive guide to manually updating to a firmware, activating and linking a Ps Vita, getting exploits after they’re pulled, copying content and more! Read the rest of this entry »
Mark Cerny’s awesome little project for the PS4, which I may say looks incredible. Was the first game to be showcased on the lengthy 2 hour PS4 announcement, and this was deliberate. Mr. Yoshida the President of Sony Worldwide Studios explains why! Read the rest of this entry »
So it seems the majority of you lot voted that you’ll update. I guess thats the decision made then. Bye Kernel!!!
I have decided to start up a once a month series called ‘Trololo talks’, it will be about things in games like ‘clichés’ and ‘pet peeves’ in games. mirroring this article a topic will be opened on the /talk forums, where the Wololo members can discuss their favourite gaming clichés!
The REvolve is a controller with a slight difference, instead of the R analogue stick, it has been replaced with a trackball! Pretty cool huh. Read the rest of this entry »
As you’ve guessed, my blog posts are a bit different than others, they’re……… Unique.
At the moment I’m at my Aunts house with my family bored as hell (my Vita’s out of battery! ) and I’m waiting for the Chinese take-out so I’m doing a blog post to (hopefully) pass a bit of time, and entertain you, of course!
Sony have done a great job with the PS4 this year, and I am very impressed with them, they have made a very clever move announcing it reasonably early in the year. Doing this allowed them to snatch up a few more indie games at GDC as Hgoel0974 reported on a previous article, Limbo is coming to Vita! YAY! I mean…… I’m a blogger, and must stay formal so I sound intelligent (snigger).
I am very glad Limbo is coming to the PlayStation Vita.
The following is relatively old news, as The Z already mentioned this almost a month ago on scene website ps3king.de, but it is getting more and more attention as the device went on sale 2 weeks ago, and early buyers started receiving their order: Some Japan modders have been selling a a hardware modded vita with an embedded capture card.

Hello again! Being as I totally haven’t spammed this page of blog posts and 5 of them aren’t on the front page, and I’m waiting for episode 2 of the walking dead game to download (Love it!) so I thought I might pay y’all a visit.
Much to the public’s delight, Playstation announced many more (awesome) things about their new console, the PlayStation 4. If you can’t read titles, they spoke more about the controller, they touched upon the HDD sizes, and also about the friends list.
So here I am again, reporting on some cool little bit of tech from kickstarter (and something else).
