Super Mario Maker on 3DS IS the Mario game you always wanted, but could never have, until now. A handheld port of its Wii U counterpart (Super Mario Maker - released in 2015), Super Mario Maker on 3DS is essential a level creation tool comprised of popular Mario game elements. SMM gives players the ability to create an infinite number of levels with the included toolset. The only limitation truly being your own imagination. The possibilities are practically endless. You want to have 1-ups shoot out of a bullet bill cannon - why not? Or how about crafting a level with the names of your young kids scattered throughout and loaded with coins just to...

20161221_163856.jpg

Box Contents: The digital watch, proprietary USB charging cable, and manual/warranty card.

Operation: This is a grab at the smart exercise watch craze; there are a TON of these things, including ones that don't even have a digital display on them. Savfy's variant is very simple, but it performs all of it's features perfectly. The wristband is a soft, smooth rubber and is very comfortable and easy to put...

The BTD0151 Bluetooth Sports Headset is Savfy's answer to the Powerbeats (Beats by Dre) and features very similar design and functionality at only 1/10th of the cost. Let's take a look:

Box Contents: The headset (of course), a manual and warranty card, a micro USB charge cable, and a set of various size earbuds come in the package. As with the first product, the USB cable seems flimsy and untrustworthy, so I pitched it right into the garbage.

EZFlash Redux for the Nintendo 2DS/3DS/N3DS

Our very own Exclusive MaxConsole Hardware Reviewer is back with yet another one of her great reviews, this week she takes on the challenge of testing out the newly launched EZ-Flash ReDux FlashCart for the Nintendo 3DS handhelds, read on for all the Pro's and Con's of this new scene-related device!


Reviewer's Notes: During the review, please keep in mind that I did not take the time to freshly format the MicroSD card I used in testing, though it works perfectly fine in my Gateway cart. I am also using a very fresh N3DS with A9LH to launch the EZR payloads from boot. The firmware and payloads I was given may also not be the final versions, but rather a review/testing version and not the actual final product. I tried to emulate an "average user" when approaching the product, meaning I did not take steps a more advanced person would take. OK! Let's dive in!...

Don't duck out on this one

Our Exclusive MaxConsole Game Reviewer is back with yet another one of his great reviews, this week he is reviewing the new Super Destronauts 2: Go Duck Yourself for the Nintendo Wii U eShop, read on to see how it is!

super-destronaut-2-banner.jpg

It can be argued that once Nintendo opened wide the doors to small time indie developers, the amount of low quality games appearing on the eShop began to increase. While yes, that has happened over the past few years, there have also been some really good entries appearing on the eshop as well. Super Destronauts 2 - Go Duck Yourself or SD2GDY for short, falls in the latter. Developed by Petite Games on the Nintendo Web Framework, SD2GDY offers some fast paced arcade action designed for quick gaming sessions.

SD2GDY is a high score arcade games, similar to Space Invaders, in which you move side to side across the bottom of the screen, avoiding enemy fire and trying to...

BC-Master's Qualcomm Compatible USB Rapid Car Charger


The BCM-CQ01 (retail $11.99) is touted as having Qualcomm Compatible charging capabilities for any mobile devices that support Quick Charge 3.0-- which includes most major brands, such as Samsung, ZTE, Google, Motorola, ASUS, and more. Technically speaking, only the top port is compatible with Quick Charging, but both are able to push 5 volts at 3 amps, meaning you can charge even the hungriest and pickiest of tablets with the unit (I'm looking at you, Apple!).

20161214_121446.jpg

Inside the box you will find the adapter, a warranty card (24 months), an instruction manual, and a Micro USB cable. The extra USB cable is a VERY nice touch and keeps you from having to purchase one specifically for the car or cart one back and forth to and from your vehicle-- It's a surprisingly large gauge for a freebie cable and has very high...

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...

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...
