Is All Of The Hate For The Nintendo 2DS For Good Reason?

If you haven’t heard yet, Nintendo is launching a brand new handheld in October that takes the concept of the Nintendo 3DS and crunches it down into a 2D sidekick. Nintendo fans are two things, if nothing else: loyal and critical. Nintendo supporters absolutely love the brand, and that love can sometimes look a lot like hate when Nintendo pushes out a product that fans feel aren’t up to their standards. Is the Nintendo 2DS going to be the next flop? It can’t be that bad, but the internet is buzzing with negativity.

Web Of Discretion: When Not To Trust Web Of Trust

Web of Trust scores a website based on criteria like trustworthiness, reliability, privacy, and safety. These scores aren’t determined by Internet security experts. They’re generated by normal people like you and I. Sounds like it can be a system vulnerable to manipulation and improper use? You’re absolutely right! There are a few common instances where you’ve got to scratch your head and second-guess a scorecard.

3 Things That Almost Make Final Fantasy Feel Like A Consistent Series

3 Things That Almost Make Final Fantasy Feel Like A Consistent Series

It’s quite ironic that one of RPGs’ most successful series of all-time doesn’t behave much like a series at all. If you’re a gamer of any sort, you’ve surely heard of Final Fantasy. It is a franchise that lifted off in 1987 and has gone big places since. While I’m of the opinion that the later games in the series stray far away from the great roots that earlier games planted, it’s not worth arguing that Final Fantasy has cemented a legacy in the genre forever.

AIM Blast: Group Messaging For AOL Instant Messenger

I don’t think you or I need to look at any official statistics to come to the conclusion that AOL Instant Messenger has been on a bit of a slope for the past few years. Skype, the messaging client of this decade, does everything that AIM can do, and usually even better. One of the nicest features available to Skype is the ability to create group conversations. I’ve come to realize that many users of AIM never knew that a similar feature has existed on AIM for years. That feature is AIM Blast.
