Ducktales: Remastered

Posted by | Video Games | No Comments


I can’t lie. Ducktales was one of my favorite NES games as a child. As you may (or may not) remember, Capcom released the original version of their Ducktales video game for the NES back in 1989. It was produced by the key personnel from the ever-popular Mega Man series. WayForward Technologies recently decided to re-imagine this game with updated graphics for the Playstation 3, Wii U, and XBox.  Check out the trailer below.

Only In Japan: Sega To Release The ‘Toylet’ Video Game

Posted by | Only In Japan, Video Games | No Comments

Haha… I did not take it seriously when I read about it a few months ago, but Sega is introducing a video game system called “Toylet” that will be playable in the urinal stalls of public bathrooms. The system will go on sale in Japan in November at a price of $1,850.

The system has an infared sensor that sees the approach of a person and sets the screen to game ready display. Then microwaves hit the stream of **ahem** urine to detect its speed, volume, and duration, which is used as a controller for the game. Of course direction plays a part as well. Check out the video after the break. (may be NSFW if you consider a naked statue to be not safe for work).

via technabob. Nintendo announced the release of its new console, the Wii U, at the E3 press conference. The next generation console comes with 1080p HD video quality, HDMI output, internal flash memory, storage, and full backwards compatibility. Nintendo also seems to have reinvented the controller as well – it seems to look like more of a tablet with a 6.2 inch touchscreen, dual analog sticks, ABXY buttons, shoulder buttons, built in gyroscope and accelerometer, and a player-facing camera and microphone. This should be released in 2012. You wan watch some of the target/reference footage displaying the graphics, and an informational video below.

Posted by | Video Games | One Comment

Apparently, I was pretty late to jump on the Angry Birds bandwagon… but the game is surprisingly fun! It’s available for the iPhone and iPad and is the top paid app (as usual) in the iTunes App store. Rovio Mobile Ltd just released the Christmas Edition of this wildly popular franchise. Good news, if you bought the Halloween Edition, this one is a free upgrade.
