HA_Reboot.jpg
One of the best Early Arcade Games from the Japanese Arcade Era, is finally getting an Retro Inspired Reboot!

One of the earliest successful computer and arcade games is returning to PCs this September. Heiankyo Alien, developed originally by the University of Tokyo's Theoretical Science Group (TSG) is receiving a modern retro inspired reboot by MNM Software out of Tokyo Japan.

While the game did have quite a bit of success in the arcades in the early 80's, it was overshadowed by games created by major development firms such as Namco and Nintendo. But this amazing arcade game from our past still has a large cult-like following in Japan.

The current iteration of the game takes some heavy graphical cues from other retro inspired reboots such as Pac-Man Champion Edition DX. The game is currently on display at the...

PerceptionReview.png
Our Very Own @JHardin1112 Gives Us Another One Of His Great Reviews For All Of Us To Enjoy!

I have read many headlines and seen many reviews of Perception now, and so many of them seem to label the game as Horror - but I respectfully disagree. In my handful of hours playing as a blind woman determined to exercise her demons and those of a troubled house and it’s past inhabitants, I never once felt fear or associated the experience with horror. Yes, I got creeped out slightly in some situations, and yes, I found myself in the fight or flight response situation (and heads-up, you can’t fight.) But for me, Perception isn’t a game about creating jump scares, and seeking to freak you out. I really don’t think Perception is a game at all - it’s a psychological experience that gives you an opportunity. An opportunity to experience in some small fashion what it is like to be blind,...

Frustrating Residents In The Nice Normally Quiet Area Called 'Paleto Bay'

Grand Theft Auto Online is of course a video game universe built around the idea, of robbing, killing, stealing, murdering, and causing general mayhem, but it also has 'criminal career' goals, of earning money, upgrading your thug level to being a top kingpin and those that have crawled their way out of the dirty, non-stop shooting gallery of 'Los Santos' have settled down to easy life up northern wooden area called 'Paleto Bay', where you could relax in your backyard, go for a walk, wave to passerby and no worry about having to killing someone, before you got gunned down and robbed, but that is all changing to horror of the residents in that area, as the crime wave moves up north.

You can read more about the angry frustration the residents are having with this new wave of crime in the link below, but...

GabyPCgeeK has yet again updated the original Savemii by Ryuzaki-MrL with number of neat new features and changes.

SaveMii, is originally a homebrew developed by the Brazilian Ryuzaki_MrL and which allows to make a backup / restoration of your backups. You must first run IOSUhax and CFW Mocha to make this homebrew work, and then you can archive your Wii U and vWii backups to SD card.

With the modified versions of GabyPCgeeK the development is more advanced and the functions more numerous. In the latter version, it is possible, for example, to perform operations on several backups, and it is possible to add the icon of the game, the backups are better achieved by using the Unicode which is supported and which allows Display symbols and special characters correctly.

PS3ConvertAndInject.jpg
Nice Windows GUI tool for stuffing your PlayStation 3 games into your OFW HDD Backup Image.

It has been known for a while you can basically 'inject' games into your OFW HDD Backup on your PlayStation 3 console, but some of the existing tools are a little basic in converting and injecting, and it just happens SvenGDK didn't know they even existed, so as long-time scene developer he has generated his own tool called 'PS3 Convert & Inject' and the first release looks very nice and works well, and he will soon correct bugs and add more and other translations to it so everyone worldwide will be able to enjoy using it.

Console games are the core of the gaming world, as they are second biggest gaming market, slowly being outgrown only by mobile games.

Since the console gaming started its journey in the 1970s, it has gone a long way from games with two dozen pixels and four bits of sound to photo-realistic graphics and VR experiences that we can enjoy nowadays. And yet, there are certain old classic games that we enjoy no matter how far the technological progress is taking us.
