PlayStation Portal Hacked PSP Games Emulator
The PlayStation Portal has been allegedly modded to run PSP games by a group of Google engineers led by Andy Nguyen. A single photo was provided of the device running what appears to be Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

No hardware modifications were required for the PPSSPP emulator to run, thanks to more than a month of work by the two engineers. Currently, there is no set release date, as lots more work is left before everything runs smoothly, although we may see a demo video or two by this weekend.

Playing Nintendo Switch Games with an NES Power Pad is Possible, But Not Ideal

Playing Nintendo Switch Games with an NES Power Pad is Possible, But Not Ideal

Nintendo Switch Games NES Power Pad
Yes, it’s possible to play Nintendo Switch games with an NES Power Pad, but the experience is not ideal. Why? You need to remap all of the Joy-Con buttons to the floor mat, and that requires the Titan One USB adapter and Retro USB’s NES adapter.



The mod isn’t perfect, but does allow one to play pinball as well as Super Mario Bros. Wonder. For those who aren’t familiar with the Power Pad, it was developed by Bandai and the gray mat boasts twelve pressure-sensors embedded between two layers of flexible plastic. It was typically plugged into the second NES controller port, and had players stepping on the large buttons to control gameplay.

Games Done Quick 2024 Featured Peanut Butter, the World’s First Speedrunning Dog

Games Done Quick 2024 Featured Peanut Butter, the World’s First Speedrunning Dog

Games Done Quick 2024 Peanut Butter First Speedrunning Dog
Awesome Games Done Quick 2024 featured Peanut Butter, the world’s first speedrunning dog. To raise money for various charities, Peanut Butter chose to play the classic NES game Gyromite, a puzzle-action game that was released in 1985 and the first of two titles that took advantage of Nintendo’s R.O.B. accessory.



Instead of R.O.B., Peanut Butter used a custom controller. You play as scientist Professor Hector as he explores his laboratory in order to collect and defuse the dynamite which is scattered across his lab. Players have around eight minutes to use R.O.B., or the custom controller in this case, to move “Gyros” around in the real world. Peanut Butte, alongside his owner JSR, competed in category ‘Game B – Dog Assistance’, and had around 30 minutes to make it through the game.

Inventor Builds Dunk Boots That Definitely Can’t Be Used in Real Basketball Games

Inventor Builds Dunk Boots That Definitely Can’t Be Used in Real Basketball Games

StuffMadeHere Dunk Boots Basketball
There’s the smart basketball hoop that helps improve your skills, and then inventor Shane Wighton’s dunk boots, which definitely can’t be used in real games. He may call them dunk boots, but they definitely look more like Inspector Gadget’s extendable legs if we’re being honest.



Initially, Wighton wanted to build something that resembled a scissor lift, but considering it weighs at least 3,000-pounds, that idea had to be thrown out since a lift of that size couldn’t be attached to his foot. A collapsible ladder design was his next idea, and to make that happen, an air cylinder had to be installed on each leg to help them extend at the push of a button. All of the metal parts were fabricated using a waterjet machine, while a 3D printer took care of the other pieces.

NVIDIA G-Sync Pulsar Technology Delivers Buttery Smooth Motion for Games

NVIDIA G-Sync Pulsar Technology Delivers Buttery Smooth Motion for Games

NVIDIA G-Sync Pulsar Technology
NVIDIA G-Sync Pulsar technology was revealed at CES 2024, and it combines smooth variable refresh with the improved motion clarity of Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB). Put simply, it offers the benefits of both, all the while working together seamlessly to deliver the definitive gaming monitor experience.



G-Sync Pulsar includes a novel algorithm that dynamically adjusts strobing patterns to varying render rates, while the technology also intelligently controls the pulse’s brightness and duration—key to maintaining visual comfort and eliminating flicker. The ASUS ROG Swift PG27 Series G-SYNC gaming monitors will be some of the first to support the technology when they launch later this year.

With Adaptive Overdrive, G-SYNC Pulsar dynamically adjusts the rate at which pixels transition from one color to another, a vital technique to reduce motion blur and ghosting. This process is complicated by VRR technology, where the refresh rate fluctuates in tandem with the GPU’s output. G-SYNC Pulsar’s solution modulates overdrive based on both screen location and refresh rate—ensuring that clarity and blur reduction are maintained across a spectrum of speeds, and across the entire screen space,” said NVIDIA.

Nintendo Switch May Be Getting Flash Cart with Multiple Games on Single Cartridge, Teased in Video

Nintendo Switch May Be Getting Flash Cart with Multiple Games on Single Cartridge, Teased in Video

Nintendo Switch Flash Cart Multiple Games Video
Could a Nintendo Switch flash cart be coming soon? If this video holds true, that would most certainly seem like the case, as the short clip shows a person using one cartridge to load multiple games onto a Nintendo Switch.


This flash cart allegedly supports all firmware versions and consoles types from every region. The product is reportedly ready to ship, with a release date set for some time next month (Jan. 2024). There’s no word yet on pricing, although we imagine it being less than buying each game individually.

We have obtained from one of our followers an exclusive video from an upcoming product this person is a beta-tester for. We were promised more updates soon,” said AfterTimeX.

This Isn’t a Toy Car, Just the F2 Gaming Emulation Handheld That Can Play SNES Games and More

This Isn’t a Toy Car, Just the F2 Gaming Emulation Handheld That Can Play SNES Games and More

F2 Gaming Emulation Handheld Toy Car
A Lenovo Legion Go is perfect for PC gaming on-the-go, but for something a bit more conspicuous, you’ll want the F2 Gaming Emulation Handheld. Aside from looking like a diecast toy car, it features a 3.0-inch IPS LCD screen and has a 1,800mAh battery, which is definitely good enough for all-day gaming on a single charge.



Since the F2 isn’t as powerful as the Analogue Pocket, it is not compatible with original game cartridges nor can the console emulate more modern systems like the PSP, SEGA Dreamcast, or GameCube. Fortunately, the F2 has TV output so you’ll be able to game on a larger screen, rather than deal with its tiny 3.0-inch screen. Still interested? You can get one for $41.93 shipped for Cyber Monday here.
