Playstation 3 (PS3) Hacking and Modding Community - PS3 Hacks, Mods, Homebrew Video Games That Converted Me From Casual Gamer To Hardcore Addict [MUO Gaming] Throughout the life of a gamer, there are certain games that make us cross over from the realm of casual gaming to being a hardcore gamer. If you look back at your gaming life, you can probably remember what the first games were that you kept coming back to. Those were the games that you did not just pop in to play casually. When I look back, there are a few games that stand out to me as the first games that really brought me in and made me a gamer. Snake Rattle ‘N Roll This is a pretty obscure NES game, but it is the first one I really remember coming back to over and over. Age Of Empires II This was my first experience with a competitive game on the PC. It was more than a battle of building lots of units; there was a “rocks, paper, scissors” element of building the right units to counter your opponents. SOCOM II: US Navy Seals SOCOM II was the first console shooter I ever really got into. Battlefield 2 Call of Duty 4 The final evolution for me as a gamer is Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare.

How-To: Hack Your PSP the Easy Way For as long as Sony’s PlayStation Portable has been on the market, it’s been a juicy target for hackers. With burly hardware (for a handheld) and a gorgeous screen, it just begs to play homebrew, and lots of PSP owners have cracked their devices to do just that. Unfortunately, Sony has had other plans for their handheld, and has released dozens of firmware updates and several hardware revisions to make it harder to hack the PSPs handheld. As such, there’s no one hack that works on all PSP, and in fact some PSPs are completely unhackable. There is, however, one fairly easy method that works on most consoles, which is what we’ll illustrate in this article. Is my PSP hackable? This hack, which doesn’t require any hardware modification, has two limitations: 1) It doesn’t work on 3000-Series PSPs. 2) If you have a firmware installed that’s more recent than version 5.03, this hack won’t work. So how do I do it already? First, plug in the PSP and make sure that it’s fully charged.

Straight Dope: What Video Games Do to Your Brain Illustration by Slug Signorino What is the influence of video games on the human mind? —Brian Why, they’re the greatest boon to intellectual development since the invention of movable type. Not everybody thinks this. I don’t claim video games have been 100 percent beneficial. These things are unfortunate. My point is if you’re going to make judgments about something just because it attracts kooks and losers, you’d have to ban the Republican primaries. They can boost brain function. There are other benefits, too: Video shooter games are a good way of recruiting real shooters. Am I putting a positive spin on things? Have something you need to get straight?

Video Games Rot Your Brain, Study Finds From the "Gee, who'd have guessed it?" department this morning comes an official report that video-game systems in dorm rooms equate to less study time and lower grade-point averages. In a recent study conducted at the University of Western Ontario, it was found that the mere presence of a game console in the rooms of first-year students led to 40 minutes less time spent studying per day, which resulted in GPAs .241 points lower on average. The study wasn't actually intended to analyze the impact of video games on student performance, but was instead trying to correlate study time to overall GPA. Students participating in the research tracked their time studying, sleeping, partying, working, gaming and doing other student-ly things. That time was then compared to their test scores, with the overall finding being that (surprise, surprise) more studying equates to higher grades. However, the author of the study cautioned against parents forcing their kids to give up video games at school.

-=Secrets of Sonic Team=- Lost Levels - A website about unreleased video games. Learn Japanese Through Videogames from 1UP It would be misleading to say that any videogame can teach you Japanese. But as a supplement to regular study and a good teacher, videogames can provide both the motivation to study harder and a way to squeeze in a little extra practice. Heck, the reason I wanted to learn Japanese in the first place was because games like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy come out in Japan up to a year before their American releases. These days, most big titles see simultaneous international release, but Square Enix's flagship RPGs will probably always come out in their native land first, and who knows if high-quality titles like Mother 3 will ever get a formal, Western release. You'll probably also notice that these suggestions skew heavily towards the handheld systems. Learning Software Japanese game store shelves are lined with programs for both children and adults to improve their language abilities, but not all of them are entirely suitable for a foreigner starting out in the language.

Seven Unsettingly Obscure Video Games You Probably Never Heard Of | BananaLoft | BananaLoft | Toronto Asian community in search of an Asian Identity Ask any recognized gamer which titles they consider memorably “scary” and you’ll often be answered with modern, conventional titles: , , , ., among many others. I don’t know about you, but I grow weary and desensitized to the clich ghost/demon/zombie style of survival-horror game play, especially when you have weapons at your disposal. Although mainstream, I enjoyed the series immensely for it’s ability to induce a chronic feeling of dread and unsettlement throughout the entire game. What drives my hair to stand on end has evolved over my years of playing horror games, for now I actually prefer obscure, unnerving titles that at times don’t even intend on being creepy in the first place. 7. This platform game is deceptively innocent, as the title screen so obviously suggests. 6. Despite the small-yet-devoted fanbase for the Clock Tower games released for the Playstation consoles, the true gem was the first in the series, which was originally released late into the SNES’ glory days. 5.

Minecraft in REALD 3D! Kyrofox, on 15 November 2011 - 06:51 AM, said: Ugh... You guys are making me facedesk so hard... By RealD3D, he means those cheap movie-theater glasses... You don't need a special monitor or special projector; all RealD is doing is just replacing the red (in red/blue glasses) with a shade of grey, and blue with a different shade of grey, therefore, they do not have to limit the film with the red+blue weirdness... For example, you can watch RealD videos (just google "RealD 3D Videos") on your current screen... Ugh, Kyrofox... RealD 3D isn't a 'camera angle' or a 'shade of grey' - it's called 'polarization'. Other competitive brands use 'linear' polarization (typically Vertical & Horizontal), whereas ReadD 3D uses 'circular polarization' to achieve stereophonic vision. The picture is displayed on a silver reflective screen using a specialized projector that switches between each eye about 144 times a second. -Musichad

Full list of AVGN videos Shit! This is an AWFUL GAME! And not a bad game because of the premise. After a few hits too many he gets angry and changes into Hyde. Jeckyll = A slow pacifistic wimp needs to avoid enemies or he’ll change to Hyde. Hyde = A rampaging killing machine out of control, needs to MOW ‘EM ALL DOWN to revert back to Jekyll. Yin and Yang. You needs to kill as Hyde because, if you don’t, he’ll “catch up” to Jeckyll’s position. So it is an original style of gameplay which does make sense. It’s like playing SMB but without any running ability and can only walk half of your normal walking speed. But that’s my take on it. it’s rare that I have to state the game mechanics but this was a rare exception.
