nintendo-new-3ds-2014-11If the rumors of the Nintendo NX are true, there is a good chance that we might be able to see the console launched in July of 2016, which conveniently enough is right after E3 which is when Nintendo will officially take the wraps off the console. That being said we’re sure some gamers are wondering what will happen to Nintendo’s other consoles after the NX’s launch?

The good news is that if you have a lot of Wii U or 3DS titles, fret not because the company plans on continuing their support for them. This was confirmed by Nintendo President Satoru Iwata during the company’s 75th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders who reassured investors that the company’s existing consoles would not go neglected.

nintendo mobileSome developers of games choose to make their games for a specific audience. For example some mobile developers choose to design games that are fun and simple so that players can get into the game anytime and anywhere without having to go through a build-up. Some developers choose to develop purely for kids, while some choose to create games for more hardcore gamers.

However as far as Nintendo is concerned, they have no plans of creating games for niche audiences. In a recent Q&A with investors, Nintendo’s President Satoru Iwata was quoted as saying that he wanted to make games that would “appeal to anyone regardless of their gaming experiences and gender, and most importantly, regardless of different cultures, nationalities and languages.” Read full post →Nintendo Wants Their Smartphone Games To Appeal To Everyone

Earlier this year Blizzard announced the latest Hearthstone expansion in the form of Blackrock Mountain which came shortly on the heels of the previous expansion, Goblins vs Gnomes. However it looks like Blizzard will not be slowing the Hearthstone train down anytime soon because a new expansion is already in the works.

According to the folks at PCGamer, they have received a package from Blizzard containing a scroll (see video above). According to the scroll it reads, “Champions are gathering from around the world to witness the next exciting thing Hearthstone has in store. News travels far and wide in search of brave new faces ready to answer the call to arms — Are you one of them?” Read full post →New Hearthstone Expansion Planned For 22nd July Announcement

When Mortal Kombat X was announced, it was also revealed that the Predator character would be available as a DLC for the game. Now given how gory the game is at the moment, we’re sure many are curious as to what kind of gory punishments the Predator character will be able to dish out to other players.

Well it seems that after all that tease, NetherRealm Studios has finally announced that the Predator DLC for Mortal Kombat X will be available come 7th of July. The availability on the 7th of July is only for those who have bought the Kombat Pack DLC, but for those who did not buy the season pass, you’d have to wait until the 14th of July to get your hands on it.

The Xbox One is Microsoft’s latest console, while the N64 is Nintendo’s console from back in the late 90s, but interestingly enough it seems that with a little tweaking, the folks over at Hyperkin have somehow managed to hack the N64’s controller and get it up and running on the Xbox One.

Both consoles are from different generations so admittedly it is a nice touch to see their hardware working together. Now it should be noted that in their efforts, it seems that the end result is not perfect. The inputs on the controller appear to go a bit wonky at times, but for the most part it works just fine, although we suppose that you might miss out on the Xbox One’s controllers new features.

red ringGamers who have been playing consoles long enough might recall the unfortunate incident with the Xbox 360’s red ring of death from many years ago. Basically this resulted in the console “dying” and sending it back to Microsoft to get it fixed was pretty much the only thing gamers could do.

Unsurprisingly this cost Microsoft a lot of money and according to a recent interview on IGN (transcribed by Eurogamer) during their podcast, EA exec Peter Moore (who used to lead the Xbox team) recounted how had Microsoft’s then-CEO Steve Ballmer simply looked at the numbers as to how much it would cost Microsoft to fix the issue, the Xbox brand might not be what it is today.

galaxy-note-3-review-01One of the ways smartphone OEMs such as Samsung and Oppo set themselves apart from other Android OEMs, besides the design of their phones, is with differentiating software features. Maybe these companies had the best intentions when creating these apps for consumers, although in reality most customers regard these apps as bloatware.

However it seems that over in China, customers have gotten so fed up with these preinstalled apps that they have taken Samsung and Oppo to court. According to the lawsuit, two smartphones in particular are being targeted – the Oppo Find 7 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, both of which consumers claim comes with apps that cannot be uninstalled.

iphone-gun-caseSmartphone cases come in many shapes and forms. Some are designed to protect, some are just for design and looks, while some are created just out of pure novelty, like a smartphone case shaped to look like a gun. It seems “clever” but this is a problem that police departments in the US are taking issue with.

Recently there have been warnings put out by the likes of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office and by the NYPD’s 112th Precinct, telling people out there that equipping your smartphones in cases that looks like a gun is probably not the smartest thing to do. “Please folks – this cell phone case is not a cool product or a good idea. A police officers job is hard enough, without having to make a split second decision in the dark of night when someone decides without thinking to pull this out while stopped for a motor vehicle violation. What do you think?” Read full post →US Police Warns Against Using Gun-Shaped Smartphone Cases

microsoft__logoEarlier this year, Microsoft hit Japanese phone maker Kyocera with a patent infringing lawsuit. According to Microsoft, Kyocera had not paid Microsoft to license the necessary technologies needed to in order to make their Android handset, something that a lot of other Android OEMs including Samsung have been paying.

That was about four months ago and it looks like the legal eagles hired by Microsoft have managed to work their magic again, allowing both companies to resolve this issue peacefully. In a statement issued by Microsoft, “Today Kyocera Corporation and Microsoft Corp. announced they have signed an agreement expanding on a prior patent licensing arrangement. The new agreement enables the companies to use a broader range of each other’s technologies in their respective products through a patent cross license.” Read full post →Microsoft & Kyocera Agree To End Legal Battle
