09/06/2013, If you’re a long-time gamer, you probably know the itch we all feel from time to time to experience games we played growing up once again in our adulthood. The problem is, many of us probably don’t think twice about keeping our old video game consoles in working condition, leaving us to only dream of the good old days. If you were anywhere near as dedicated to this gamer whole […]
03/29/2013, There is nothing quite like the feeling of paying a visit to the past, and sometimes, old is gold where certain computer games are concerned. I am quite sure that some of us do think back of those PC games which we spent hours on during our formative years as a teenager, where the DOS platform proved to be rather tricky when it comes to configuring your audio setup, with […]
03/26/2013, It was yesterday when we brought you word that the Ouya console which runs on the Android operating system is able to support emulators of older classic consoles, too, Well, this $99 console can be said to be the console that could, where apart from running Android games on your spanking new HDTV, it also has enough firepower underneath the hood to run as a classic computer. In fact, developer […]
03/19/2013, Easter is right around the corner, where it will be celebrated at the end of this month, and you know for sure that there will be Easter Egg hunts and the like in countries where Easter is celebrated. Well, forget about those super sweet chocolate eggs, especially when you can concentrate on Easter Eggs found in apps. Easter Eggs within apps are so called, as they offer something out of […]
02/06/2013, There have been a number of video game console emulators available on Android that can play Nintendo 64, PlayStation and even hand-held game devices like the Nintendo DS. But it looks we may finally be getting a Nintendo Wii and GameCube emulator in the very near future. The Dolphin emulator has been available for years for Windows, Mac and Linux, and it looks like its developers are planning on an Android release. A […]
12/19/2012, You know that a particular video game console has penciled itself into immortality when there is an emulator for it for just about every operating system out there. In fact, the SNES console has been one of Nintendo’s top sellers in the past, where it duked it out with the Sega Megadrive for a long, long time, and now we hear of the SNES emulator known as Snes8x that will […]
01/24/2012, The Sega Saturn is not one of the more famous and well loved consoles from Japanese gaming firm Sega back in the day when they still made consoles (and awesome ads – remember the tagline, that “Sega does what Nintendon’t”?), but I am quite sure that no matter how misunderstood or unpopular a particular console was, it still has its fair share of fans. At least one developer out there […]
01/02/2012, While the PlayStation launched with a bevy of games that should keep gamers entertained for months, it looks like those games aren’t the only ones they’ll be stuck with. A developer managed to get a Sega Genesis emulator running on the console – via the PlayStation Vita’s own PSP emulator (the Sega Genesis emulator was originally made for the PSP). Despite being an emulator running within an emulator, the demonstration […]
12/23/2011, It only took a couple of days, but it looks like the iMAME app which allowed gamers to play classic games on their iOS devices has finally been pulled out from the Apple App Store. Can’t say we didn’t see this coming, since Apple forbids apps on its store from running emulated code. However, it’s safe to say that this isn’t going to be the last we’ve seen of the […]
11/29/2011, If Microsoft’s recent $25 store credit promotion wasn’t enough to convince you to switch over to Windows Phone 7, maybe you’d like to get a hands-on experience with the operating system. Microsoft has recently put up a website that allows you to do just that. No, you don’t need to hack your phone or load a custom ROM; all you have to do is visit the website on your smartphone’s web […]
10/19/2011, If you’ve ever wondered what Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich would look like on a tablet, the folks down at The Verge have managed to simulate the look of Android’s latest OS on a potentially larger screen, tablets for example.
08/24/2011, The BlackBerry PlayBook might have been derided 5 ways to Sunday, but that doesn’t mean it has failed like the HP TouchPad – at least you don’t see RIM throwing a firesale of their PlayBook. There is another thing that the PlayBook can do which the TouchPad doesn’t (granted both of them run on different operating systems), and that is the PlayBook can run Android apps in an emulator. Well […]
08/22/2011, Have you ever wished that you could run iOS apps on your computer? If you’re not an iOS developer, and you don’t own a Mac computer, you’ve probably never even gotten the chance before. Well, a developer named Chris Wade wants to change all that. He has decided to come up with iEmu – an iOS emulator for everybody (consumers and developers and it runs on all computers). With iEmu, […]
08/10/2011, Let’s face it, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play didn’t exactly make a huge splash when it dropped onto the market, and until now, it hasn’t really gained any traction. While the phone has very capable hardware for gaming (bar the terrible touchpads), its success has been marred largely due to the lack of legitimate PlayStation One games from the PlayStation Suite.
