lets-talk-nes-classic-edition

Nintendo made an announcement a couple of weeks ago that not many saw coming. In November, the company will be bringing back the NES. Nintendo is readying a mini version of its classic console as a plug-and-play device under the name “Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition”.

The NES Classic Edition will cost $60, but you’re getting quite a lot for that price. 30 games are included in the box, meaning its $2 for each one. There are some absolute classics in there such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and much more.

How’s everyone feeling about the NES Classic Edition? Will you be picking up one come November? Would you be interested in seeing Nintendo adopt the same idea for some other older systems? Tell us your thoughts below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Pokemon GO

eevee-brothers

One Easter Egg Pokemon GO players have been unsure about is the method of making Eevee evolve through a particular trick. But at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 today, Niantic CEO John Hanke officially confirmed its existence.

If you haven’t heard of the trick previously, it amounts to naming Eevee in a certain way. To have Jolteon, you need to give it the nickname Sparky. Eevee can evolve into Vaporeon by naming it Rainer. Lastly, Flareon requires the name Pyro. Each one is a nod to the original Pokemon anime’s Eevee Brothers Rainer, Pyro, and Sparky.
