How many times have you been on the last level of Super Mario Bros. 3, and you get so excited that you jump up and rip the controller out of the system?

10? 20? 100 times?

Your days of leaving Princess Peach to die at the hands of Bowser are over thanks to this wireless Nintendo NES from 8Bitdo. The Retro Receiver set turns your brand-new NES Classic into the system of your wireless dreams, allowing you the full range of excitement that comes with beating Super Mario Bros. 3.

via Reddit

The set comes with an NES30 controller, a USB charging cable, and bluetooth reciever. Only one per box, though. Also, as Mashable was quick to point out, you can use the receiver for almost any “current-gen wireless controller other than Xbox,” meaning you can use PS4 or Wii controller on this bad boy.

The controller ships on December 16 and costs $39.99 on Amazon.

For better control in video editing, photo editing, or just sending emojis, the new Apple MacBook Touch Bar has a lot of perks, but Apple still buried the lead on this one.

Apparently, you can play a super smushed version of Doom on this thing.

Sure, the Touch Bar is a great way to bring Apple Pay and Predictive Text to the desktop. Replacing the physical function keys at the top of the keyboard, the Touch Bar is a digital interface that's touch sensitive and totally customizable. It’s another great innovation from Apple that allows a wider range of control for users. More importantly, you can play a version of Doom on it that looks like it was crushed by a vice.

According to Mashable:

Developer Adam Bell crammed the 1993 classic in all of its glory to run on the the narrow 2,160 x 60 pixel OLED touchscreen. Is it pretty? Hell no. Is it pointless? Absolutely.

Announced at the Apple Event in October, the Touch Bar was the centerpiece of the new MacBook Pro laptops. The tech giant hoped to bring some of the benefits of touchscreen computing that has revolutionized handheld products, like the iPad and the iPhone. In doing so, they have given developers yet another place to stick the class video game Doom, and we’re all better for it.

This August Ruslan Sokolovsky recorded himself while playing Pokémon GO inside Church of All Saints in Yekaterinburg, after having been made aware such activity within the church could result in jail time...

“How can one offend by entering a church with a smartphone?” Sokolovsky asked. “I decided to just catch some Pokemon in church because, why not? I believe it’s both safe and not prohibited by law. Let’s go.”

Well, fast forward to after Sokolovsky posted the video he was investigated by police, and shortly thereafter charged with inciting hatred and offending religious sensibilities. He's being detained for two months, and stands to face up to five years in jail.

What do you guys think, does the punishment fit the crime here?

Google is investing "hundreds of thousands of dollars" in virtual-reality (VR) films and programs they want to put exclusively on their new hybrid store/software service called Daydream, which will debut in a few weeks.



They have quietly recruited web and YouTube stars like the Donal twins, Justine Ezarik, and more, and partnered with video game producers and sports leagues for the biggest VR initiative they've ever invested in.



Your Android will get a push rolled out on Monday to support Daydream, so we will soon get a chance to evaluate it for ourselves. I know i'm pretty psyched to try out being a first-person VR dino-killer in Island 359.

What do you guys think? The gym leaders were revealed yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con, when hundreds of players also gathered with high hopes that a legendary might be unleashed...no such luck, unfortunately. Some other details covered:

  • There are easter eggs that nobody's discovered yet
  • They’re planning ways to customize Pokestops
  • Pokemon Centers are coming
  • There will be more functionality added to gyms, though the specifics aren’t clear
  • Niantic says the game is at about 10% of what they want it to be
  • They’re still discussing breeding, but nothing concrete in the works yet
  • The legendary birds are tied to teams in some way, as the original designs implied
  • Yep, they know about the three-step glitch.
  • It sounds like we can’t expect legendaries until after the game has been released on all regions, which makes sense

What a time to be alive: a Sacramento based fool has been arrested for sending death threats to Blizzard Entertainment.

Stephen Cebula, 28, is accused of sending messages "over the internet" on July 2 & 3 saying he "may or may not pay [Blizzard] a visit with an AK47 amongst some other 'fun' tools," and "might be inclined to 'cause a disturbance' at [Blizzard's] headquarters in California with an AK47 and a few other 'opportunistic tools."


IF he's found guilty he's looking at a sweet five years in jail, and a $250K fine...Alright, I'm done.
