A man took a Raspberry Pi mini PC, a barcode scanner, a speaker, some LEDs, and suck them all in a Microwave. No, not in the cooking part! The end result is outstanding.

* They actually released several home video game systems before the FamiCom - but they did not have interchangable games, and so they weren't really what we think of as a video game console - they were more like a plug-n-play video game system with built-in games. They had also released several hand held LED games before this time, the "Game and Watch" series.
[I stress - this is just my opinion - based on my personal library, and my personal play experience through the last 30 or so years - full disclosure, I did not get an NES to at least 1985, so not even 30 years.]Without any further ado... I bring you my Top 30 FamiCom/NES Games of the last 30 years:

After getting smacked in the face by millions of very loud voices of reason in the form of pissed off gamers, (including one Chad W. Smith), Microsoft has gained a small amount of sanity and changed the Xbox One draconian policies to something much less evil.
Microsoft's Xbox One chief product officer Marc Whitten has confirmed and clarified "that does mean that features like Family Sharing won’t be there." and moving between Xbox Ones (like logging into Live at a friend's house) will no longer give you access to all of your games - just the ones you bought online. You'll have to bring your discs to play those games. You will also still have to install every game to the hard drive, and Kinect is still required. And to play disc-based games, you will have to have that disc in the drive (even though it will be playing from the hard drive).

Hi, my name is Chad W. Smith, and you've found my blog. Thanks for stopping by! This is where I write about what's going on in the work of technology - computers, gadgets, games, gear, software, the Internet - and if I find a good source of Photoshop brushes, or a good deal on toothpaste online - I'll pass that along to.
Thanks again for stopping by, feel free to leave a comment, tell me I'm wrong, tell me I'm right, offer more resources to other readers (and me!), or just hang out. Enjoy your time on the Interwebs - try not to get stuck in the tubes.Disclosure Policy
