GDP has released a full-on Windows 10 handheld gaming portable called the GDP Win, and it's pretty darn cool.

Last weekend, the team at Black Hive Media traveled to San Antonio, Texas to explore the world of PAX South. Originally known as the Penny Arcade Expo, PAX is a convention that focuses exclusively on the gaming industry. They’ve got it all: tabletop game tournaments, a LAN party, exhibit booths from both major game developers as well as smaller independent shops. No matter where you fall on the gaming spectrum, PAX is sure to have something for you to get excited about. Unfortunately, our team only had one day to attempt to navigate the entire show floor, and if you’ve ever been to a convention, you know that seeing everything in one day is impossible. Despite the obvious time limitations, we did our best to see and do as much as possible.

If you've been a player of Elite Dangerous for a while, you'll know that there's always been a hunt for alien life. Seems someone found it.

Years ago, probably sometime in the early 80's, my parents bought an IBM PC. I still remember those extra large 8 inch and eventually 5.25 inch floppy disks and the booting sounds that were made trying to read the contents. This was probably a glimpse of the early home computing revolution which grew to become what we now use today. Back then, I just absorbed it all. Especially all the early PC games.
Indie Saturday! We give impressions on indie games (and maybe just some smaller games in general).

Astroneer is a indie game I have been following for years , the comparisons to no mans sky are inevitable but in this game plays very differently and is a lot more open in what you can and can't do.
Super Mario Run is out on iOS devices. How does it fare? ...maybe too fair.
Mike and Ryan from Cinemassacre recently set up a blind test between the PS4 and PS4 Pro and the results may surprise you, or at least make you laugh.
Last night, Jimmy Fallon got his excited hands on the Nintendo Switch and Super Mario Run.
Super Mario Run looks the part and Fallon was certainly exploding in joy, but the game itself looks rather simple ...er mobile-esque. In fact, at our development company here, we made a very similar prototype last year based on our Arcade Jumper title (of course Arcade Jumper is heavily inspired by Super Mario in the first place). We ultimately decided to abandon the idea due to the fickle and volitile mobile market.
But hey, Mario is Mario and will make serious bank in the first minute it's out. I'm mildly excited to try Super Mario Run, but I know it won't be something I'll play for long.
Then there's the Switch.
It all plays as expected, which is a good thing, although I was really hoping they'd show off some touch input. They played a small sample of Zelda Breath of the Wild. You can tell it was heavily scripted; especially when Fallon said "lemme play!" and Reggie just straight up ignored him until his bit was done.
The new Mass Effect trailer shows off a lot of awesomeness, check it out.
