NBA Baller Beats and Cooking Mama publisher is done with games.

Cooking Mama publisher Majesco has left the video game business. The New Jersey-based company announced this week that it merged with Biotech company PolarityTE, ending its run as a publisher.


Another famous gaming studio bites the dust, and in this case it is strange one its because it decided to merge with a Biotech Company, so of course 'video gaming' no longer fits their new type of business, well maybe they will offer 'game tatoos' or 'discounts' for facelifes on old gamers that want to look young again. Oh'well hope they good luck in their new business venture.

Nintendo and independent developers working together? We'll that's something totally new, and nice too!

Nintendo Switch is building up hype especially after the video reveal weeks ago. Just this week, it added more hype as they guested for Jimmy Fallon featuring the Switch's capability to run The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Following the trend, Indies are now starting to come out from hiding and gradually showing of their initial outputs for the Console-Handheld hybrid.


For a while Nintendo was missing out on Indie devs. on their platforms, most of the indies were releasing solely on PlayStation or Xbox, but near the end of the Wii U lifecycle, big 'N' started to repair that damage and they got alot of indies onboard with their new programs and offers, and it seems that rebuilding relationship is moving over nicely into the upcoming Nintendo Switch platform. :)

Nothing Better Than Playing 30 Year Old Video Games We Grew Up With On Our 55" LCD TV Screen in 1080p/60fps

Ok, the graphics is not that good, but still amazing, the only problem is we have to be within a foot of the TV because at the short cord length that comes with the wired NES classic controllers supplied with the NES Mini Classic Edition.


But now there is solution to the problem, as third-parties have released wireless NES controllers, and now Daemon Hatfield has figured out how to mod those controllers to make the adapter work with your existing PlayStation 3 and Wii U Pro controllers! :)

Nintendo. No. Stop.

Internet is in Rage mode after finding out that the new Exclusive iOS game from Nintendo called 'Super Mario Run' needs your iPhone or iPad to be always connected the Internet to be able to play, leaving you with Mario-less action in subways or other places.


It turns out big 'N' has decided that their very first Mario game on a mobile device should work only if you have always-on-internet, once you have lost your signal, you have lost your ability to smash mushrooms or collect coins, or get Mario to jump over boxes. :)

The UnderGround Nintendo Wii U Scene keeps on getting Better and Bolder and Bigger as everyday goes by!

Team WiiUBRU keeps on amazing sceners, with them now releasing their very own special 'GO' site which allows you to get quickly into 'modding' your Nintendo Wii U console right away without the any need to prepare a bunch of offline webkit browser tools on your PC and then networking to them to install any of current existing exploits or hacks that have recently been released!


@modrobert writes: "The guys over at wiiubru.com just made hacking the Wii U a lot easier. All you need is to have a WiiU with firmware v5.5.1 (latest) connected to internet and an SD card. This is so convenient for the user it's almost ridiculous, no need for a computer. Heads will roll in the Nintendo boardroom followed by firmware update releases."

The Earlier Rumors that NPD Group would report Sony outsold Microsoft during November are finally confirmed!

A representative from market analyst NPD Group told GameSpot that PlayStation 4 outsold Xbox One during the month of November, breaking Microsoft's streak of higher sales.


It has now been officially confirmed, the earlier reports based on scans of cash register receipts by users were right, PS4 was the best-selling console in November, and the world famous NPD Group (which sadly only tracks America sales) has confirmed it, the four-month streak of Xbox One winning each month is now over, its back to the era of Sony winning the sales crown thanks in part to the launch of PSVR and cheaper price of the SLIM as the roll-out of the PS4 PRO started in middle of November, means that December could yet be another month of hot sales for the PlayStation brand.

Alto’s Adventure is still one of my favorite games to pick up and play on the commute, on the airplane or basically anywhere I have both my iPhone and a few minutes to spare.

The endless snowboarding adventure is one part mobile game and one part “in the zone” chill-out experience. But now there’s going to be a follow-up, and it’ll be more than an adventure — it’ll be an Odyssey.


One of the over-looked mobile games is Alto's Adventure, if you have not tried it out yet, I suggest you do, and if you are a fan already like myself, you will be glad to know there is sequel in the works, and here is some 'teaser' info about the upcoming Odyssey edition.

Nintendo's next big thing made a surprise appearance Wednesday night

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé swung by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight to show off two of the company’s most important products in years — smartphone game Super Mario Run, and the new Switch console.


The original event was to be Jimmy playing Super Mario Run for the Apple iPhone that is coming out next week from Nintendo, but instead Reggie decides to whip out an Nintendo Switch and guess what it had the upcoming Zelda: Breath of The Wild loaded on it, and right away they decided to play it for a few minutes to the shock of everyone watching! :)
