  1. The Virtual Boy was a very interesting piece of hardware when it launched in 1995. Nintendo's device allowed players to look into goggles which would give a 3D effect to the games shown within. However, the unit caused more headaches and confusion than anything else so it was discontinued only a year later. The Virtual Boy library in North America is quite tiny. Unlike the hundreds, or even thousands, of games available on Nintendo's successful DS, there are only fourteen officially available for it. There are also a bit of homebrew and reproduction releases to be found. Such is the case with Blox. Blox was developed by Christian Radke and is block pushing puzzle game. Although it may not be creative, it was never before available in physical format. Right now you can get the game with a box and manual for $80. This may seem a bit pricey but homebrew tends to cost more. Blox is limited to fifty physical copies so order it right now if you have hopes to ever possess a complete Virtual Boy game collection.
  2. Are you tired of news about special edition after special edition for modern consoles like PS3 and 360? If you've still got a Dreamcast kicking around then perhaps HuCast Games will have you covered with their upcoming shooter. The Ghost Blade is currently up for pre-order and it's a nice little edition. The vertically-scrolling shooter currently has no release date but that didn't stop it from having a collector's edition created. The set will contain a copy of the game, soundtrack CD, SuperPlay DVD, color manual, sticker set, beta demo discs, and a 24 page art book. It might not be the most impressive collection out there, but you have to keep in mind that this is a homebrew developer we're talking about here and not a massive company. The Ghost Blade Collector's Edition is set to have a very limited print run. There will be only 300 made, although the game itself will be available in larger quantities. This edition costs approximately $110 so hurry and get it pre-ordered if the CE is that appealing to you.

    A New NES Game is Coming

    Yep, you heard that right. Not a new DS or Wii product but a Nintendo Entertainment System game. If you're familiar with the homebrew scene then this probably isn't a major surprise, as the NES scene is still fairly popular. For those unfamiliar with the term, homebrew developers are basically small indie groups who create games for older platforms (most often). Developer Gradual Games has announced their newest project: The Legend of Owlia. This team is not new to the scene and has previously released Nomolos: Storming the Castle as a physical cart. The name "Owlia" might seem a bit silly, but once you take a look at the game it becomes obvious why it was named as such. In Owlia, you are an adventurer who has a pet owl. The owl is able to act as a weapon to protect your character alongside a more traditional weapon. The title appears to take after typical RPGs of the era, with loads of happy NPCs, towns, and enemies. No price has been announced yet, but their previous title sells for $32.
  4. We've been through this song and dance before. A person or company posts an image of their amazing breakthrough in the homebrew scene for the 3DS and then nothing ever comes of it. While that has been the truth so far, things might actually be different this time. Why is that, you might ask? Because the person who snapped the above image is a user who goes by the name Yellows8, an apparently big player in the past when it came to cracking open the original Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii systems. I can't even begin to understand how important this person's work was when it came to opening up those consoles, but judging from users reactions on different sites, the appearance of Yellows8's name does seem to be a pretty big deal. There are still plenty of people arguing over the image's validity however. The main argument being that it could just be in DS mode. But the fact that the top screen is still lit apparently disproves that. Either way, this one image doesn't really mean anything yet. Yes, they achieved something. And they probably did find an exploit on the 3DS, but these sorts of things usually takes months of testing after they're found. And even if there is any chance for a real exploit to come from this, don't expect to hear about it until later into next year at the earliest. You can view the full arguments in the GBATemp forums below. Hacked 3DS?
