Mad Catz M.O.J.O – Hands on Review     by Dark Watcher (23-Dec-15)

The android micro-console market seemed to go out of control with so many competitors trying to capture some of the success following the OUYA. The result was a flood of similar devices with mobile cellular components and an Android operating system. The Dark Watcher took advantage of the situation, and purchased a Mad Catz M.O.J.O for a bargain. Now before … Read more


Hyperkin SupaBoy 2.0: Impressions     by Tan (19-Feb-13)

Nearly two months ago I bought one of these on impulse from a local shop. While my handheld gaming interest these days is nearly non-existent with the exception of the occasional tablet session, the idea of playing SNES cartridges wherever, whenever was too much of a temptation to pass up. As luck would have it, my procrastination of about a … Read more


Review: Razer DeathAdder 3.5G Left-Handed     by Tan (21-Nov-12)

Admittedly, I’m rather late to the whole high performance mouse scene. For years I sustained my gaming habits with mostly standard, off the shelf mice. Occasionally I’d venture into new ground with a performance oriented design, optical trackball or whatever the latest innovation was at the time. I dabbled in the Logitech MX series, tried a “couch mouse”, Microsoft’s Bluetrack … Read more


Most Expensive Systems to Collect For     by Marriott_Guy (25-Nov-09)

Though not a huge game collector, I do tend to invest in software for the more unique systems in my collection.  I enter into this fully aware that the games (for the most part) will see limited action and will require me to pay a premium due to their limited availability and/or production.  This is something we all encounter to … Read more


Review: Texas Intruments TI-99/4A     by Marriott_Guy (15-Oct-09)

I have always been intrigued by video gaming systems, beginning with my first experience with my Uncle Glenn’s Atari PONG system at the tender age of 7.  I was a gaming panhandler during my early years until my father told me in 1979 that he had decided to take the plunge. Would he choose the Atari 2600 that seemed to … Read more


Annoyances for the Video Game Collector     by Marriott_Guy (26-Sep-09)

Every video game enthusiast absolutely loves adding a new title or system to their collection.  Whether it be a treasure that has been extremely elusive or simply an anticipated release for a current gen system.  We love them all and experience a certain rush with any new addition to our respective "Hero’s Chest".  On the flipside, a boatload of irritants … Read more


The SX2 : A New Gaming System Concept     by Marriott_Guy (15-Jul-09)

I am the first one to admit that I was wrong about my initial impressions on handheld systems – they are not just jealous little rug rats of their technically superior big brother consoles. They do have their unique appeal and I have found that this attraction was not limited to the specific ‘handheld fan-boy’ target audience. I have learned … Read more


Crossing Over Isn’t That Easy     by Marriott_Guy (09-May-09)

Being successful in the video game hardware industry has proven to be financial lucrative for many companies throughout the years.  Everyone knows about the old school power players like Atari, Nintendo and Sega – they began as a company focusing on this specific market (for the most part).  Companies like Sony and Microsoft have also achieved like success in the … Read more


What Were They Thinking??     by Marriott_Guy (19-Apr-09)

Throughout the years I have been amazed by the technological leaps and developments in the video game industry.  By the same token, some of the gaffes that have been made by the developers and manufactures have stunned me as well.  Here are a few of my favorites… Atari 5200 AV/Power Switchbox Now this picture does not truly give this dog … Read more


Handheld Systems – “I don’t get it”     by Marriott_Guy (13-Feb-09)

With my console collection pretty much fleshed out I have decided to take the plunge into collecting handheld systems. This is an area within the video gaming field that I have totally neglected, almost to the point of refusing to recognize their existence. I have never understood the attraction to this method of gaming. Some of my peers might even … Read more
