REVIEWS Read Only Memories Review
The Kickstarter-funded text-based adventure game blows away most AAA titles with smart writing, engaging characters, and more style than you can fit on an NES cartridge.

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


New 3DS and 3DS XL Announced

Posted on Friday, August 29 @ 07:56:30 PST by Alex_Osborn

Nintendo announced the "New Nintendo 3DS" today in a presentation for Japanese consumers and the revised hardware includes a secondary analog stick and comes in two different sizes.

The "New" Nintendo 3DS LL (as it's know in Japan) comes in Metallic Blue and Metallic Black. The "New" Nintendo 3DS will be available in White and Black, though these colors have a slightly muted tone to set them apart from other Nintendo 3DS units.

Here's a quick list of hardware changes:
  • Colored face buttons match the Super Famicom or Super NES line of controllers where A, B, X, and Y, were matched to Red, Yellow, Blue, and Green.
  • The New Ninendo 3DS adds a small analog stick (which kind of looks like a nub) that sits just above the right face buttons. It's called the C-stick, just like the GameCube controller's second analog input.
  • Game cartridges are now inserted in the lower left side of the hardware, as opposed to the rear behind the top screen.
  • The New Nintendo 3DS also adds the Circle Pad Pro's extra shoulder buttons dubbed ZR and ZL.
  • The power button has also been moved to the bottom front of the unit along with the stylus holder.
  • The screen will automatically adjust its brightness to fit the lighting around you.
  • amiibo figures can be used on the bottom screen.
Nintendo is also promising improved battery life and improved 3D effects for anyone who can't help but tilt the hardware when playing an action-packed game. We hope to have more on the next 3DS iteration soon. Stick with GameRevolution for more Nintendo news from PAX Prime 2014.
