Pretty surprising news from Nintendo this morning. There’s a new Pokémon game on the horizon (two, actually). But that’s not the surprising part. Black & White Version 2 won’t be Nintendo 3DS exclusives. They’re being released on the Nintendo DS.
One of Nintendo’s most valuable franchises would have been a sure draw for those who are still on the fence when it comes to the purchase of a 3DS. It’s hard to say, but it appears with this announcement that Nintendo has little faith in their 3D portable. They’ll be better off selling more copies of a new Pokémon game on an old system instead of trying to recruit new 3DS gamers by making it an exclusive. At least, it seems that’s what Nintendo is thinking.
The press release is below: Continue reading →
In a post-nuclear future, when the earth is riddled with radiation, a new urban developer proposes to regenerate the cities back into civilisation. GAMMA sets out to stabilise the atomic mistakes of yesteryear for the re-inhabitation of future generations. Using its patented ‘Nuke-Root’ technology; part fungi, part mollusc, GAMMA intends to soak up the radiation and remove it from the irradiated cities, rebuilding them in the process.
Earth is invaded, a little girl dies, Shepard has an orange blade, and Ashley got a face lift.
As the inevitable announcement of Apple’s next tablet creeps up on us, more and more rumors keep rolling in. The latest? A new processor and updated camera. The usual fare. Not too exciting (like most of Apple’s product line updates).
According to IntoMobile.com, “a Chinese website called WeiPhone… managed to get a photo of what’s supposedly going to be the iPad 3 motherboard. On said motherboard is a massive chip labeled A5X, as in the successor to the A5 that’s currently inside the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.”
It has arrived! I ordered the Pogoplug Classic from Buy.com this past Tuesday night and was surprised to find it at my door when I got home from work on Friday (considering I opted for free shipping).
It’s Monday and I still haven’t even set this thing up. But I sure am curious to find out how capable it is. I’ll be updating this blog post so I can show you guys how easy the setup process is and give you my thoughts as to whether or not this is a Dropbox killer.
For those of you not familiar with the Pogoplug, check out their current devices here.
I’ll keep you posted!
For years they promised us this day would come. Finally, it’s here… and it doesn’t actually work.
“Back to the Future Hover Board: Finally! This totally awesome 1:1 replica of the hover board from the BTTF 2 and BTTF 3 films includes multiple whooshing sounds and will glide over most surfaces (does not actually “hover” – check back in 2015 for that feature). We’ll be taking orders for it March 1 – March 20, 2012, and the final product will be shipped around November/December 2012. Because this is such a high-cost item, there will be a minimum number of orders required to go into production. If we don’t receive the minimum orders, won’t go into production and customers will not be charged. The price will be announced later this month. (Note: Hover board does not work on water.)”
Hopefully they get enough pre-orders.
