    Evercade?!

    From what I've seen on Funstock's site, there is no possibility of simultaneous two-player gaming with the Evercade, correct?
  2. I'm very specifically getting in as the final games are coming out ... that's my favorite time to get a new game system I'm looking forward to picking up lots of games on clearance (as well as $20 "Nintendo Selects" versions of all-time greats), and I have a massive 128GB Micro SD formatted as FAT32 -- with my pack-in game (Zelda Link Between Worlds) copied to it... and lots of slots ready for the inevitable Nintendo Store clearance sales. I loved Wario Ware on the GBA (both Mega Microgames and Twisted) - looking forward to playing WarioWare Gold on my 2DS XL. One final point - in regards the security risk of leaving credit card numbers in the Nintendo eShop -- NE146 has the correct answer, but don't forget the option to buy a gift card at a physical store (where they are occasionally discounted) and just uploading the code.
  3. I just bought my first Nintendo portable since the Game Boy Micro... ...a 2DS XL Hylian Shield edition. The screen may be in 2D, but the case is gloriously 3D
  4. I know you mean the original arcade hardware, knocker and diagonally mounted joystick and all. That said, the 2600 is still real hardware, and I have loved 2600 Q*Bert since I was a kid
  5. We knew most of the details, but I learned a new thing or two about HSW - his life after going out of game development, and the fact that Speilberg wanted something more arcade-like (like Pac-Man)
  6. That's just a screenshot - imagine if each of your eyes was pressed up against each of the images, like a viewmaster.
  7. Just found out about this - I own a Galaxy S6, and I'm seriously tempted to get a Gear VR for this. Anyone have a Gear VR yet, or anyone tried Oculus Arcade? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwJCuihwW44
  8. Everybody! Everybody! Homestar Runner is coming back soon! Could a restart of the Homestar Runner RPG be far behind?
  9. On a pure quality to popularity ratio, Frostbite is really underrated.
  10. I even have fond memories of the Pac-Man box art -- I tried so hard to follow the narrative of the artist's rendition of the all-yellow "ghost quartet"!
  11. http://www.theverge.com/2013/9/19/4716444/how-atari-box-art-turned-8-bit-games-into-virtual-wonderlands Go there right now - incredible article with some incredible web design. Then let's discuss A snippet:
  12. Great post, and great rebuttal, Shaggy. Just what I was thinking -- Home, phone, and tablet gaming isn't guaranteed to kill the arcade, just like how DVD's, Netfflix, and HDTV didn't kill the movies.
  13. Go read it now on the Verge.. Multimedia and awesome. I'll wait for you... read it, then let's discuss
