The Nintendo 64 is surely the pinnacle of retro gaming.

Launched for the first time back in 1996, it was one of the first video games consoles to have a truly global impact, making waves in markets across Asia, Europe and the US as it burst into our childhoods. Most people old enough to remember the launch, or indeed playing on early N64 consoles can remember the thrill - the graphics were unbelievable, and unparalleled by anything else available at the time. Beyond that, the selection of games was enough to transform one of the first tech-savvy generations into lifelong gamers.


Of those games that were launched with the N64, there are few that touched on gambling, or had gambling at the core of their themes. While there was already a precedent for gambling games and Nintendo consoles, particularly with the Game Boy as the most obvious...

The cart version of Lego City Undercover needs a big install

Lego City Undercover is the next major third-party port heading to Nintendo Switch, but early copies are already turning some console owners off of the game.
Earlier this week, there was alot of uproar over the fact most 'third-party' games on the Switch will be $10 more, even tho they are same as their previous PS3/X360 ports, and now a new uproar over the fact that buy 'Lego City Undercover' in physical form is waste, and it installs the 'cartridge' to your storage eating up 13gb of your tiny stock free 25gb of space, leaving you no choice but to invest in some Micro SDXHC cards right away if you wish to play more Switch games other than just 'Lego City' on your newly bought hybrid system.

If you're going to play a military shooter that offers you choices on how to complete a mission, then of course you need a place to prepare for it.

The safe house in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is just such a place with plenty of things to do inside it.

My Mass Effect playthrough was the most straight-laced, male heterosexual journey you could imagine.

I boned Ashley, despite her space-alt-right leanings. Then I boned Miranda, because I mean, I’m only human. Garrus was just my mechanic. The guy stuck at the bottom of my ship fixing shit.
It seems that 'female gamers' are really enjoying the new Mass Effect, in fact they all want to sleep with Garrus, the alien that at the bottom at ship fixing things, seems he is driving the girl gamers made crazy and they are all sex-crazed over him and can't get enough.

PLEASE DO PANIC! - Browser Hax's like 'PegaSwitch' are confirmed NO LONGER working with this 'Stability' update!

Nintendo Switch is less then a month old, and we already have a new firmware update ontop of the first day 1 update at launch!
As usual when consoles first roll out there is going to be alot of 'stability' updates, but since that 'buzzword' is normally used to mean 'exploits have been patched', the world was in whirlwind panic when the 'update notice' flashed across their Switch screens, but PLEASE WORRY, as this small patch seems to have indeed patched out the 'memory leaks' with the hidden web browser, so goodbye 'PegaSwitch'!
Enjoy Updating If You Wish To Lose Possible Future 'HomeBrew' Support! :(

Or if you want to play SAFE...

Nintendo of America’s President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime recently appeared on Fox News to talk about the Nintendo Switch launch.
Nintendo seems to think they have invented the Toaster and Slice Bread again for the video gaming industry, but will it turn out like that, will we be seeing in 4 years or less, Nintendo at #1 position in the sales charts, and Sony and Microsoft trying to bring up the rear.

Compare and contrast with Mehdi's marketing push for the plan back in 2013.

We're now approaching the four-year anniversary of Microsoft's rollout (and subsequent reversal) of a controversial plan to let game publishers limit resale of used, disc-based games.
Microsoft is gearing up for E3 '17 where they going to have big unveiling of the World's Most Powerful Console Ever, but lets take a look back at how they fucked up the first roll-out of the Xbox One just under 4 years ago at E3 '13, it seems to be almost all but forgotten.
