All gamers would know the sensation of discovering a brand new game that immediately takes you into another universe!

Horizon Zero Dawn is exactly one of those games with a unique identity in the world of action role playing. The PS4 release date of the much awaited game is set for the 28th February.

Horizon Zero Dawn has been developed by Guerrilla Games, the same team behind the awesome Killzone franchise. They have brilliantly themed the game on a beautiful, post-apocalyptic. The game will take you into a distant future, where you will see how nature has taken over the ruins of a lost civilization. Humanity has resorted to live in primitive tribes, as they have lost the war to gain...

But 'Virtual Console' will NOT be Ready for Launch!

Nintendo has sent out press release, with a few updates regarding the Nintendo Switch launch next week occurring on March 3rd.
The big news is that eShop will be ready for launch, but it will mean having a 'day-one' update on your Switch, but big 'N' claims it is small, quick, and designed to update in the background, so you will be able to start gaming right away, while as long as you bought a physical game cartridge to play with as the system is updating, and afterwards you will be glad to know that there will be some 'indie games' already on the new eShop ready for your digital purchase, and any outstanding funds from your old Nintendo Network Wallet will work!

It took Piotr Delgado “The Mexican Runner” Kusielczuk 91 hours to beat Miracle Piano Teaching System, an NES game created to teach kids how to play the piano. (To pull it off, he had to teach himself how to play piano.)

That was the longest. He’s also spent 39 hours with the billiards game Championship Pool, 37 and a half hours with the shoot’em-up Ikari Warriors, and more than 16 hours playing Q*Bert.
We all have heard the stories of loyal video gamers collecting every single NES game ever made, produced, boxed, or sold, but really what is the fun in that, anyone can spend a ton of money buying old 30 year old games and storing them in boxes on their shelves, but the real fun is playing them all. I mean what the fuck are video games for, they are to be enjoyed, so rip open that $10,000 package of an unsealed never played before NES cartridge, slam it into your 30 year old console, pick up...

$100 less than you'd normally pay. - Once again, you can pick up an Xbox One S for $200.

This offer includes the white, 500 GB system that comes with Minecraft. While that's not the most expensive game to be bundled with an Xbox One, this is still an outstanding price for a new console.
First Sony announced lower prices for their PS4 console with one game, and now Microsoft is doing the same, but beating them by $50 dollars, and all this is occurring just ahead of Nintendo's big Switch launch with a nice high $299 pricetag and no games bundled in! :)

It seems that Nintendo has employed or is in the works with the Belgian Anti-Piracy Federation which has gone on a copyright frenzy on youtube.

Various content creators have received one or multiple copyright strikes on youtube and have had their videos completely removed; some users have also been completely shut down!
Ahead of the Switch release, Nintendo is going on warpath again removing any videos to do about 'modding', 'flashcarts', 'homebrew' on the Nintendo 3DS, some YouTuber's think the crackdown is to make it look like their devices are 'secure' ahead of the big Switch release, or to put fear into the 'modders' out there to leave the 'Switch' alone or Nintendo will come calling, if you think you can post a mod! :)




So what do you think Nintendo's reasons are, and is it not strange they...

Story, Kojima’s Involvement

Fans of stealth game franchise Metal Gear may still see a Metal Gear Solid film come to fruition. This is good news for gamers who want to see the famed Solid Snake in live action.
Well it seems the movie project to turn Snake from 'video gaming character' into big screen action hero is coming along, and surprising enough it seems Kojima might still be involved with the project, so that is good news all around for loyal fans of the gaming series.

#NintendoMinute - Forgot all those fake viral videos of 'stolen' Switches being unboxed, this is the World's First Unboxing of a Switch!

The old viral saying goes like this: Once tou seen one unboxing, You have seen them all! Well that is not really true, when it comes to Kit & Krysta, there is no one else in the world wide world of social networking that can do an unboxing video like they can!
Now that Nintendo with its army of men in black have removed all those 'fake viral videos' of unboxing by hiphoptherobot with his stolen Switch that they even got back from him, and rounded up all those rogue employees, its now safe for them to release the first official real unboxing of a Nintendo Switch, and amazing enough 10 days earlier before anyone in the world has ever seen one being unboxed before!

Game Boy Advanced is not about Metroid, Castelvania or Legend of Zelda.

There are more games to it than these overblown titles bathing in rays of nostalgic glory. We played in more then three games as kids – why are most of them suddenly forgotten?
Today, in the era of Internet, a time when GBA ROMs download takes but a few seconds, we can finally honor some of our favorite games by playing them once more. I wonder how they’ll go right now, once you are a mature adult (you are a mature adult, aren’t you)?

So, what are some of the best games you played as a kid but totally forgot about today?

Super Monkey Ball Jr.

A monkey inside a ball racing on a track filled with obstacles – who came up with these ideas back in the day, anyway? And yet the game was a huge success. Jaw breaking complexity...
