Accessories – Two major accessories were released on the Gamecube, memory cards and the Gameboy Player. Memory cards are required to save your progress in a game. You will need at least one memory card unless you want to keep playing the same levels over and over again. Nintendo made three different sizes of memory card, 4MB, 16MB and 64MB. The smaller sizes will work for many adventure games but almost all sports games will require at least a 16MB and sometimes a 64MB card to save a season. I recommend a 16MB card for most people unless you are definitely buying sports games.
How could I not name the classic game that started the arcade revolution. Street Fighter originally launched in 1987 making them the first arcade fighting game to kick off the trend that became so popular in the following 10 years and still to this day. Street Fighter was designed by legends Takashi Nishiyama and Hiroshi Matsumoto. Two names I will never forget in this lifetime. The 2 original characters were Ryu and Ryu’s opponent Ken. Versions of Street Fighter released include the original Street Fighter, the street Fighter ll series, Street Fighter Alpha series and then following the EX series, after that was Street Fighter lll, the Vs. series then came around 1996, then finally Street Fighter IV and even a new version this year in 2009 of Street Fighter Online known as the Mouse Generation.
LG a market innovator themselves envisaged a brilliant idea to bring this awesome technology into our cell phones. This is not a fantasy but infact a reality with the new LG Optimus 3D. It has the 3D technology and everything that you’ll see on the screen will have the 3D effect like that of the movies. But don’t worry unlike the movies where you have to wear a 3D enabled glasses to have effect of 3D,in the new JG Optimus 3D, you don’t need to wear a 3D glass in order to use your phone.
Another feature of the console is that it can wirelessly connect with another PSP systems. Two people can actually compete in a game at exactly the same time. The wireless connection option is also dependent on the game being played.
Steam OS is an operating system that can be booted to a pc in conjunction with Steam’s Big picture Mode. It boasts a host of new gaming options that essentially turn a PC gamer’s rig into a console. Players will be able to stream content as well as play music and movies and view pictures on their hard drives. Family sharing will allow family members to share games between them, and parental control options will be available as well. The one thing that Steam OS might have over buying a new console is that it is completely free and always will be.
This is a great time to mention the difference between Nintendo controllers and third party controllers. Nintendo controllers are more reliable and comfortable while third party controllers are less expensive. I only buy Nintendo controllers myself, because I think they are worth the extra money for the piece of mind that they will not break on you.
THE XVT came with a 30 watt sound bar attached delivering rich clear stereo sound. It’s awesome watching music videos, even without some fancy home theater sub-woofer sound set-up.
