When Ridley Scott’s Roman saga of betrayal, strength, honor and revenge hit the theaters 6 months into the new millennium, people went absolutely crazy about it.


Gladiator stirred the audiences up in such a monumental way that left both the director and main actor Russell Crow, stunned and amazed. The film went ahead to win four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Russell Crowe. Curiously, not even the oversaturation of the film industry with Ancient Rome themes prevented this film from becoming one of the most popular motion pictures ever.

An Unexpected Hit

Looking at Gladiator’s beautifully rendered imagery, morose yet spot-on color palette and pretty amazing CGI for the year it’s been made in, it’s hard to believe the film is 16 years old already. It feels like yesterday when everyone was so excited talking about and...

Is it Time for Us to Pull the Plug on the Gaming Industry from Producing any new forms of Violent Video Games?

There’s a proven correlation between video games and gun violence, yet we still allow our children free access to these games, breeding an assassination generation.

Dave Grossman, is author of the book Assassination Generation: Video Games, Aggression, and the Psychology of Killing with Kristine Paulsen and Katie Miserany, and below you will find his own review of his new book that goes in-depth into the problem our youth is having after growing up in generation of playing violent video games, and why there is so many problems now in America, he believes its is all connected, and we need to control the output of the video games from the rapidly growing...

Our very own reviewer JHardin1112 is back with another great Wii U Game Review!

Pirates Pop Plus on the Nintendo Wii U Console, is a fun little arcade game, and JHardin sits down to play it for us and review it, as you can see from his comments below, its worth trying out, so check it out in full below.


Sometimes all you need is a game that takes you back to the basics. Simple movements, simple goals, one simple screen. Pirates Pop Plus on the Wii U does exactly that. PPP is an arcade game that offers players a simple, yet engaging and addictive experience that will bring you back over and over again. So how is it that such a seemingly simple game is able to achieve this not so simple feat?

PPP puts players in the shoes of a pirate by the name of Pete Jr., who upon waking from his nap on the beach sees bubbles in the distance. Once Pete Jr. is close enough to the source, he finds that the bubbles come from...

Another Great Nintendo Wii U Game Review, by JHardin1112

Our very own MaxConsole Game Reviewer is back, with another one of his wonderful Game Reviews, this week he is reviewing the recently released Indie eShop game for the Nintendo Wii U console, called 'The Gem Collector', so check it out in full below!


There are a few notable indie developers on the Nintendo scene right now, but only a handful of those produce some real gems worthy of picking up. One such game is The Gem Collector from TreeFall studios. If you don’t know anything about TreeFall studios, I’ll sum them up in one word - passionate. The team at TS started out with The Letter, which admittedly came across as someone’s first attempt at using Unity, rather than a complete game, but hey, I own it and I’m happy with the purchase. What was evident in the game and in all the posts, video interviews, etc was that...

Another Great Nintendo 3DS Game Review, by JHardin1112

Our very own MaxConsole Game Reviewer is back, with another one of his wonderful Game Reviews, this week he is reviewing the recently released Hyrule warriors Legends for the Nintendo 3DS handheld, so check it out in full below!


Back in 2014, the Wii U added a sweet little game called Hyrule Warriors. Basically, it’s Dynasty Warriors merged with the Legend of Zelda series. While Hyrule Warriors received high marks across various sites, there are those of us who never picked it up, namely me, myself, and I. So when I saw Legends announced, I was quite excited to play a handheld version of the popular title. And thanks to Nintendo of America, I have been able to play, and now review the portable offering of Hyrule Warriors. I played the game on my original 3DS, and while I did experience some framerate...

Another Great Nintendo 3DS Game Review, by JHardin1112

Our very own MaxConsole Game Reviewer is back, with another one of his wonderful Game Reviews, this week he is reviewing the recently released Sega 3D Classics Collection for the Nintendo 3DS handheld, so check it out today!


Growing up in the late 80's and early 90's, most kids who played video games owned either Nintendo or SEGA consoles. Personally, I owned Nintendo consoles, but my uncle owned a SEGA genesis. It was there that I was introduced to Sonic the Hedgehog and Altered Beast. As much as I loved Nintendo (and still do), I quickly became a fan of both Sonic and Altered Beast. The challenge and entertainment that I and countless other children experienced playing Sega titles back in the day is exactly what Sega aimed to recreate with their latest release, SEGA 3D Classics Collection, and they did. Classics Collection is a...

'Thunderkick' recently launched a new interesting game called 'The Rift'.

The casino game developers are getting better and better. More money is pouring into the industry and the competition amongst the game developers is getting tougher by the minute.


The best casino game provider in the world according to bastacasinobonus.se is the Swedish game developer Net Entertainment. Net Entertainment, or simply Net Ent, has been in business since the mid 90's.

They are undoubtedly the premier game developer and you can play their games on hundreds of different online casinos around the world. But there's a new Swedish casino game developer that makes quality games called Thunderkick. Thunderkick has only been around a few years but has already landed some lucrative...

The 2010's have been great for online gaming in general.

Many of the best games that people can play today were invented in the last few years.


Game developers are struggling in order to improve upon their brands and to create games that are completely different from the ones that preceded them. The best online gaming games for PC today are all extremely different, giving everyone involved a lot of different choices when it comes to the games that they can play.

The All Jackpots online casino is one of the many online casinos who understands the power of modern gaming and a lot of the challenges involved. People who are going to play in All Jackpots casino are going to have seven hundred different games to choose from and maybe...

Amiiqo Evolved

P1010411.JPG

Back in August of last year I reviewed the Amiiqo device here on MaxConsole. The handy little device allows you “emulate” an Amiibo figure by backing up and restoring the data to their own multi-slot NFC disc. Since that time, Amiiqo has seen a name change and major updates to it’s software.

The device is now known as the N2 and the new N2 Elite comes with USB NFC reader/writer hardware that can be used on any PC or OSX computer. This makes saving and restoring your figure data much easier than the previously available software, which was only available for Android based devices.

The hardware is based on the well-known NXP MFRC522 chip, which should allow for many future upgrades and improvements (more on that later). The disc itself is the same as Amiiqo but with a re-branded label. The big star...
