Aperture Science - A Fanmade Homebrew ‘Portal’ game For Nintendo DS

Since Valve doesn’t seem to be showing Nintendo fans love any time soon, some clever homebrewers decided to take matters into their own hands. Aperture Science from Lobo and Smealum is a completely original story featuring Doug Rattman as the protagonist and it even has a level editor. You can download an unfinished 14-level test build with level editor here.

THIS PERIPHERAL LETS YOU PLAY DS GAMES ON YOUR WiiU

But there’s a catch: it isn’t real. Too bad.

Sure, Nintendo could just put the DS back-catalog on the eShop, but there’s all kinds of legal licensing hoopla associated with that. It’s a shame Nintendo would probably never put out an awesome little device like this since it could potentially hurt the sales of their handhelds.

But then again, they DID come out with Super Game Boy and the GBA Player for GameCube, so maybe there is hope.

'Pokemon Black & White 2' Developed For The Hardest Of Hardcore Trainers
If phrases like effort values, ev training, and IV spreads are completely foreign to you and you’ve never checked Smogon.com while breeding and training your ultimate Pocket Monster team, you can go right on ahead and skip this post.
For the rest of us, rejoice! The latest installment of franchise will include a post-game that’s better suited to the hardest of hardcore trainers.
Siliconera caught up with Seth McMahill, Assistant Manager of Product Marketing at Nintendo, who had this to say:

I mean, there’s even areas [inBlack/White 2] in Join Avenue that specifically will lower and raise EV values. I actually found that out online, but if you look at Black/White 2, there’s a lot that really relates directly to that. Like the unlimited dungeon, where you can go and continue to level up, fighting Pokémon that are at an equal level to yours, and continue to get experience points.
Pokémon fans, in the past, always had to deal with what we call ‘grinding the grass,’ where after you get around to beating the Elite 4, it’s like, “What we do now? Keep going through that, or go fight in the grass where characters are 20 levels below??
But this time around, this is a sequel. And all the core fans knew about [EVs and IVs] already. They’ve been talking about it constantly, and it was a big part of Pokémon. And although it was in the undercurrent before as you mentioned, this time we decided, let’s bring it out into the open. Let’s open up the complexity of Pokémon for people who want it.

I first played Pokemon when it originally came out for the original Game Boy waaaay back in the day. Since then, I’ve sunk literally thousands of hours into raising the ultimate fighting machines, so I’m personally stoked about this new addition to the game. Plus, it’ll keep O.G.’s like myself from getting bored after plowing through the main game.

The Adventure Time Game Collector’s Edition Comes With A Buttload Of Rad Stuff
Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?! looks awesome enough on its own merit (think Legend of Zelda II, but in the Land of Ooo and less sucky more polished). But when you throw this absurdly fresh collector’s edition into the mix, well, any 3DS or DS owner would have to be a complete jerk not to get down with sickness.
For just $10 more than the regular game, this set includes map, beastiary, a stylus shaped like Finn’s sword, and it all comes bundled in a steel case that looks like the Enchirdion - a sacred hero’s handbook that Finn and Jake go an epic D&D-like quest to obtain in an episode from the show’s first season.
Pretty dang radical.

Pokemon Black & White 2 Get Another Bad-Ass Animated Trailer

While it’s not as quite as epic as the first animated trailer, this just makes me with they’d get rid of Ash Ketchum and make an entire show about these new kids. I don’t know what it is, but I get a heavy Persona vibe from this.

This See-thru Blue DS Lite Is Rad To The Power Of Sexy Times Infinity And Beyond

Flickr user optimus-convoy tells a story of how he gave his broken DS Lite a new lease on life.

Once upon a time, a young man bought a limited edition golden triforce Nintendo DS. He loved the way it looked, the way it played, the way it felt in his hands. He took that thing everywhere in his pocket and played tons of great games on it. It suffered a few drops, some selectively unresponsive shoulder buttons, a busted green power LED, but it was still in fine working order.

However, the years eventually took their toll. One day the hinge that held its top screen to its bottom cracked, and that young man was left with a DS with a floppy top screen. Such a terrible fate indeed. He did manage to move on, bought a 3DS for some reason, and kept playing. But when he returned to his DS games, something wasn’t quite right. It just wasn’t as comfortable as his DS of old. So he took it upon himself to return his shining DS to its former glory. A few tutorials and orders from China later, and his DS was back and better than ever.

The moral of this story, kids, is that even if an electronic device seems broken, it could still be a very easy fix if you’re willing to investigate the problem.”

Remember those clear Game Boys from the 90’s? Tech companies need to stop trying to make everything look like Apple products and bring back clear florescent jumpoffs. Them jawns were my jam.

A Little Bit On The Pokémon Black & White Sequel Side: Pokemon Black & White are officially getting a sequel, only not in the way that you’d expect. It was announced today on Japan’s Pokémon Smash by Pokémon games director, Junichi Masuda, that instead of a third expansion of Black & White, they’re both getting full-on sequels titled Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2.
In addition, the game’s mascots will be Black Kyurem and White Kyurem, which pretty much look like Zekrom and Reshiram slaughtered a Kyurem and are wearing his carcass as a fancy suit.
Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 are scheduled to drop in Japan this June on the DS. Yeah, we were hoping for 3DS releases too. Ah well.
