2 Weeks With The SNES Classic Edition

As the title suggest, I’ve had the SNES Classic Edition for about 2 weeks. That’s been enough time, along with my work schedule and Xadara stuff, to manage to complete everything on Super Mario World and to play all the way through Earthbound. Sure, I’ve touched on a few things – unlocked Star Fox 2 …

I Got A SNES Classic Edition Console

Thanks to some connections (and the fact that I actually wanted one at launch) I was able to get one of the highly sought after SNES Classic Edition consoles – a small stand alone plug-and-play style console which contains 21 built in games from the 16-bit Super Nintendo, a top tier gaming console back in …

SNES Classic Pre-Orders Are Being Mysteriously Cancelled

In another peculiar bit of SNES Classic Edition news, apparently pre-orders are getting cancelled again. This time, however, these are legitimate pre-orders and not the obviously premature ones that Walmart had opened up a few months ago. Originally I was made aware of the fact that pre-orders from Hawaii were getting cancelled at oddly high …

The SNES Classic Edition To Not Be Sold In Quebec?

I was informed by a friend yesterday of something a little odd: The SNES Classic Edition is, currently, illegal to sell in Quebec, Canada. People who have placed pre-orders with addresses in Quebec began receiving notices that their orders would not be shipped to QC addresses, and would be canceled as a result, alongside Canadian …

Whatever Happened To Pokemon Go?

Last year Pokemon Go was the thing; everyone everywhere was playing it (or at least those who had decent phones were). You couldn’t escape it! Now, you see only the die-hards even bothering to fire up the game. Granted, only a few months ago I finally got a chance to play it, but that was …
