The Retro AVS Wireless NES Gamepad is out and worth a look

While sitting around killing time with Kingsway (best thing ever go buy it) and staving off what I can only assume to be a deadly parasite after drinking so much delicious ocean water while on vacation, the doorbell rang. I answered in my t...

Nintendo ends production for the regular New 3DS in Japan

Ha! "Standard," New 3DS. Remember the OG 3DS? Well eventually it got an XL variant, then a "New" upgrade that essentially amounts to what Sony and Microsoft did with the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X respectively (except this upgrade has a few exc...

eBay is trying, and failing, to beat out SNES Mini scalpers

Did you know eBay has an anti-scalper policy? Probably not, because it can't really enforce it given how tenacious scalpers are. The SNES Mini has been up for pre-order in the UK, and it instantly sold out. Naturally desperate folks are tur...
