Mupen 64 On Open Pandora

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

It’s not perfect, it’s not even really impressive at this stage, but it makes up for that with oodles and oodles of promise. Suffice to say, playable N64 on the Pandora is more or less a certainty and we’ve surely got the dual analogue to thank for making it an awful lot more comfortable than […]

Rygar: The Battle of Argus – Wii review

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

Review by Johnus Maximus If you’re a Wii owner and looking for a cheap and easy action adventure game, then look no further than Rygar: The Battle of Argus. Developed by Team Tachyon and published by Tecmo, this is a repackaging of a game released in 2002 for the PS2, with very little to differentiate […]

Snega2usb Connect Your SNES And SEGA Genesis Carts As Mass Storage

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

Born on the same forums as the Pandora console, Snega2usb is a re-envisioned cartridge ripper that shows up as mass storage, making it an absolute synch to simply drag and drop ROMs right off your dusty old cartridges, or even play them right off the cart.

Halo 3: ODST – Xbox 360 review

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

Review by Johnus Maximus Just in case you missed the hype-train, there’s a new first person shooter in town and it goes by the name of Halo 3: ODST.

Baby biOrb Review

Sunday, October 11th, 2009

To distract from the heavily involved desire to set up a marine aquarium we decided to try the Baby biOrb and set it up in our daughters bedroom. The biOrb range of aquariums are well known for looking good, they’re the Apple of the fish world and, like the gadget manufacturer, they make questionable compromises […]

Christmas is closing in, so why not sit back and partake of a few shameless toy reviews alongside your usual diet of games and technology? If you’re not familiar with the series, kicked off with the Thomas Post Office Loader then let me introduce you to Thomas and Cranky. This is the second, I think, […]

V-Tech Kidizoom Pro First Impressions Review

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Every now and then I’ve hopefully picked up a toy camera from a store shelf, intrigued by the whole concept of nurturing my daughters early interest in Gadgets. Unfortunately, these always turn out to be simplistic toys which “simulate” the functionality of digital cameras with the basic sounds and aesthetic of the real deal.

Odroid Space Megaforce Gameplay Video

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

The Odroid looks quirky, but any avid arcade gamer will understand the reasoning behind its, albeit somewhat borrowed from and remeniscent of the Wanderswan, control scheme. See over the fold for a video of Space Megaforce on this potential, but perhaps quite worthy, thief of Pandora’s attention.
