Late last year I had a chance to check out the Live Gamer HD, an easy-to-use video capture card from AverMedia that allowed me to capture 1080p video from just about any HDMI source using a simple pass-through connection. It was the easiest hardware solution for capturing and streaming game footage I’d come across.
In 2005, Nintendo shut the door on the original Game Boy with the minuscule Game Boy Micro, a brilliantly engineered rectangle of compromise. It wouldn’t run original Game Boy or Game Boy colour titles — just Game Boy Advance games — but boy was it pretty. Many people hated it. I just bought a new one, and I want to share it with you.
Last October, peripheral maker Power A made a bid for the Android gamepad market with the MOGA, a pocket-sized controller with a flip-up clip for holding your smallish Android gaming device. The idea was that this odd little controller, paired with a smartphone, was effectively its own handheld gaming system, a Google-powered Game Boy.
If a Nintendo Entertainment System and a recording studio mixing board had a baby, it would look a lot like the Ming Mecca, which is very likely the weirdest piece of new video game hardware announced this year.
