We’ve seen some extraordinary portable N64 case mods in the past, but none functionally as well thought out and designed as this. It’s a portable N64 mod known as the D64 and it’ll play multi-player games. The funny thing is that the D64 uses the five-inch LCD from the old Sony PS One, how about that? Each charge can generate up to three hours of play time.
We know that Call of Duty: Black Ops is one great multiplayer game, but would you hack a server in order to play your favourite multiplayer game? Apparently, some folks would go that far just to host a Call of Duty: Black Ops game.
World domination comes to those who wait. As do other good things, like the console adaptation of Sid Meier’s turn-based Civilization series, aptly titled Civilization Revolution, as the latest offering departs from its PC-focused predecessor in two significant ways. First it’s quicker. Whereas a multiplayer round of Civilization IV could take eight, 12, even upwards of 20 hours before it reached a resolution, a match in Revolution only takes two or three. But that doesn’t mean the game’s been stripped of its depth. The 16 civilizations, four time periods, randomly generated small-ish maps featuring varied terrain and hosts of barbarians, and an assortment of Wonders and Great People, can make Revolution quite intimidating to new comers.
Admit it: you secretly call yourself Daddy Death match and reckon you have already got the mad level, editing skillz to design your own multiplayer levels. Well, Far Cry 2’s map editor gives you the chance to back up the big words by enabling you to build your own killings fields, and then post them online for people to enjoy. Think Little Big Planet, only with the AK 47’s Jeeps and vast, burning forests.
