This awesome gaming controller turns your iPhone into a Nintendo DS

If you want to play hardcore games with killer graphics and complex stories that take week to work your way through, you’ll probably want a dedicated video game console or a pricey gaming PC. But if you’re a casual gamer who prefers to just have some relaxing fun, you already own the perfect console — you just might not know it.

Apple’s iPhone is an ideal gaming machine because there are so many great developers out there making games for it. You’ve got every conceivable genre covered, and iOS games are far more affordable than any PS4 or Xbox One games out there. The problem is the controls — there’s only so much you can do with a touchscreen.

It’s time for you to meet the Tt eSPORTS Contour Wireless Mobile Gaming Controller, which transforms any iPhone into a portable gaming console like the Nintendo DS. More →

How to hatch eggs more efficiently in Pokemon Go

At the end of the day, every Pokemon Trainer has only one goal in mind: catching them all. That’s the key tenet of any Pokemon adventure, but with Pokemon Go, it’s more difficult than ever to actually accomplish that goal.

Not only are some of the rarest Pokemon currently impossible to catch, but others can only be found in specific regions, so the only way to add them to your collection is to hatch them from an egg. For the most part, this simply requires a great deal of walking, but over the weekend, CNET published some worthwhile tips to help you hatch eggs more efficiently in Pokemon Go.

Watch the PS4 Slim being powered on for the first time

Over the weekend, we saw the first leaked images of the upcoming “PS4 Slim” — a slimmer PlayStation 4 console that is expected to be unveiled alongside the PS4 Neo at Sony’s PlayStation Meeting in New York next month.

The leak was about as convincing as they come, but in case you were still skeptical about the console’s legitimacy, a new video all but proves it.

Oceanhorn 2 iOS Announcement

One of the iPhone’s best RPGs is getting a sequel

One of the iPhone’s best RPGs is getting a sequel

Although it never received quite as much attention as Pokemon Go, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas made a big splash when it launched in 2013. Virtually unprecedented in scope and scale, Oceanhorn was a full 3D RPG for iPhone and iPad. Developed by small independent studio Cornfox & Bros., it was a perfect substitute for a true mobile Zelda game.

Nearly three years later, we’re finally getting a sequel.

How to play this year’s most popular PC game on a Mac

Overwatch has been a surprise hit for Blizzard, a game company much better known for World of Warcraft, not a team shooter. But while Overwatch has been out for months now, Mac owners have been left out of the fun.

But as it turns out, it’s not that hard to play Overwatch on OS X. All you need is a little time and some clever software.

Pokemon Go Cheats

We will ban Pokemon Go cheaters, Niantic promises

We will ban Pokemon Go cheaters, Niantic promises

Niantic, a relatively small game developer which is suddenly in charge of administering the world’s biggest mobile game, is done with cheaters. In a statement posted to the game’s blog, the development team confirmed that it will “continue to terminate accounts that show clear signs of cheating.”

It’s an open-ended statement that doesn’t specify exactly what the company consider cheating, how it weeds people out, and what the appeals process (if any) is for accounts falsely flagged. But it does make absolutely clear that Niantic is tired of people cheating at the game.

Don’t ask why you’d turn an Xbox One S into a laptop, just be impressed

Earlier this month, Microsoft released the Xbox One S, a console that has a smaller footprint than its predecessor, but also comes ready to offer some neat additional features. However, you still need to hook up the Xbox One S to a TV set and a power supply to play games, and you can’t take it with you on the road. That’s unless you hire Eddie Zarick to build you an Xbook One S, which is exactly what you expect: an Xbox One S laptop. More →
