Angry Birds, o la nueva era donde los desarrolladores pueden ser estrellas ¿Os acordáis de cómo era el mundo de las aplicaciones móviles antes de la llegada del iPhone y de la App Store? Todo se reducía a esos anuncios de politonos, sonitonos y juegos simples rescatados de consolas antiguas que se emitían en los intermedios de Los Simpsons. Con la explosión de las aplicaciones de la AppStore (por cierto, ya hay más de un cuarto de millón de aplicaciones disponibles en la tienda), ha habido un nuevo filón de oro para ciertas personas: los desarrolladores. Mientras antes tenías que partir de una base con muchos recursos para hacer dinero con un producto, ahora hay personas que incluso siendo menores de edad sólo han necesitado una buena idea para poder triunfar. Un buen ejemplo de ello es el juego Angry Birds, desarrollada por la finlandesa Rovio, compañía fundada por tres estudiantes universitarios en el 2003. ¿Quién iba a decirles a esos tres estudiantes que su aplicación iba a conseguir más de 6,5 millones de descargas sin gastarse ni un duro en publicidad?

Pac-Man Whoops! Maybe you were looking for Pacman? “Waka Waka Waka Waka Waka Waka” Pac-Man (パックマン, omnomnomnomnom ) is widely known for his popular arcade game developed by Namco and licensed for distribution by Midway Games in 1980. Creation : The Hero of Timeedit The Big Bang was not created by Dogs, or even Tits; It was in fact created when Erwin Frodoinger beat the high score on a Pac-man arcade machine (previously set by DongDongJr.) and ripped the space-time continuum in a moment of excitement. Pac-Man’s creation was brought about through Magic and was an integral foundation for the basis of Fronizzle. God commanded that the newly embodied Pac-Man devour all things evil on Earth, and thus his great hunger began. Rumour has it that a possible 256th attempt was made, but this would have created a subspace schism since Jugoolarzinmer had not yet created enough Hexadecimal numbers in the universe.

SO TRUE: The pain of watching non geeks use computers… I don’t know about you guys, but as an IT geek, this is what constantly happens in my mind while watching “normal” people use computers. Hit the jump for the end of the story. [Via Reddit] PlaysPokemon The upcoming run of Pokemon Red will be a Pokedex completion run by use a 151 romhack. It will start in anarchy mode and democracy mode will only be enabled if a location-specific timer ticks down to zero (leaving the area will result in the timer being paused). I had previously intended this run of Red to be anarchy mode-only but I think putting democracy mode behind a substantial, non-dodgeable timer is more realistic. Here are some of the games and romhacks being considered for future runs: Pokemon Diamond (Telefang)MoemonTouhoumonPokemon BrownPokemon PrismPokemon QuartzPokemon MarblePokemon Blue (democracy-only)Pokemon Trading Card Game (democracy-only)Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (democracy-only) I like to think of it as seasons, this (and the upcoming Omega Ruby run) has been the 2014 season of TPP.

Lost Levels - A website about unreleased video games. -=Secrets of Sonic Team=- 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.

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?

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.
