    Geomagnetic head tracking to provide surround sound in headphones/earbuds

    Or, "Project Headspace". The current market: Current surround-sound headphones are complete bollocks. Fitting five speakers into each earpiece is expensive, drastically diminishes the audio quality, and doesn't actually provide surround sound. The only thing it does get right is the shift in...

    Virtual Boy 2

    Ever since the Oculus Rift and the 3DS came along, i've been wondering what Nintendo would do if they tried their hand at the Virtual Reality game (again). They've pioneered motion controls, made wireless video streaming lagless, and pushed Augmented Reality further than anyone else. So i think...

    Where's my Wii U zapper, Nintendo?!

    The more i play around with a mockup, and the more power i give it, the more it impresses the hell out of me as a potential game-changer for the genre Nintendo is most often regarded as being "out of touch" with, FPS. This thread is a repository for my experiments, and discussion on the subject...

    Booze Enthusiast

    The best way to assess spirits without smashing your face in is this: Instead of putting your nose to the glass and breathing in through your nose, put your nose to the glass and inhale through your mouth. This will create a gentle "vacuum" and lift the aroma into your nose at a much slower...

    Shave Enthusiast

    Throughout the history of this site, the community thread has played host to many a discussion on the other realms of community-member enthusiasm. I thought it would be interesting if we threw a few topics up in this forum to more easily keep track of the various topics. This one is a personal...

    Motion controls: A 2010 GDC presentation by Jason Vanderberghe (that Red Steel 2 guy)

    I was hunting around for new information on Red Steel 3, found out that this guy did Far Cry 3, then stumbled on to this gem of a presentation about the difficulties, and possibilities of the Wiimote. It also explains the annoying tutorials of Red Steel 2, and covers a whole lot of great game...

    With custom communities being available some time in the nearish future, we'll definitely be wanting to create a presence on miiverse. A space to discuss our online gaming, to show off our community, and to bring new folks into the fold (for even BETTER online gaming!). To stand above the nine...

    ZombiU - A survivors account

    I'd had this review written for a while, it's done from the perspective of a video account of a survivor. The idea was for the survivor's to carry this kind of thing on them, and it would help to bridge the reality between survivors in the normal mode of the game. So it's a fanfic/review hybrid...

    Nano Assault Neo: The nature documentary

    I'm having tonnes of fun with this game, even if i am rubbish at it. Considering it was cheaper than a movie ticket, the fact that it only has 16 levels seems inconsequential. What's there is great, and it's always good to support the talented devs that really try. I also thought it would be a...

    Little Inferno review: The poem.

    Themightyme's written review of the game was excellent, and featured more interesting writing and references than a vast majority of the professional media. Great work! I was going to put my hand up for that review, but I had a different direction in mind. I'm glad it went to him, everything...

    Oi WiiU owners, test something for me!

    A load of people have been lamenting the cost of "official" wiiu headsets, but i have a fairly solid theory which could save people a bundle. Unfortunately, i'm still ten days away from WiiU ownership due to a pointlessly offset release schedule. The 3.5mm jack on the gamepad SHOULD be...

    New editions of Iwata (laughs) are live

    Not sure when these went up, but it must have been recently! We have two sprawling four-page articles which cover miiverse and the networking solution baked into the WiiU. Lots of good stuff about the decisions behind the friends codes and why they're being abandoned for a more open community...

    WiiU advertising campaign vs MS and Apple

    The WiiU's US TV push launched with the now familiar "cube world" ad, and ended up competing with Microsoft's "movement" marketing for the Surface AND Apple's new "Bounce" campaign. Here we have three commercials with a similar visual style, all vying for recognition of their touchscreen-based...
