Metroid Fusion - Nintendo Online

        Image: The Nintendo Switch has been dominating the market since its release for the go to handheld in the gaming industry. Nintendo is not new to the party when it comes to handhelds. With that being said, Nintendo announced its " Nintendo Switch Online " gaming service that opened up a variety of older consoles gaming from SNES to now the GBA line. Unfor, there is still a lot of games not offered but only a select few from each console.  Metroid Fusion Summary: Metroid Fusion is an  action-adventure game  developed and published by  Nintendo  for the  Game Boy Advance  in 2002.

Tesla Investor Day Recap – The Good and the Future of Electric Cars

      Image: Tesla Investor day has come and gone, and some people see it as a letdown and other see opportunities. Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, announced a new Gigafactory will be built in Monterrey Mexico and showed an image of the current state of Tesla, vehicle wise, and a few covered items we have not seen yet.   Over Tesla’s existence they have sold a lot of cars and the roadmap looks amazing in our opinion. The Cyber Truck is still on its way and Tesla is making progress on the semi-truck too. The 2 vehicles we see under tarps are what people have been questioning about. What can these items be? A small car maybe a SmartCar size? Possibly a larger ATV that is similar to the forgotten Cyberquad? Regardless of it will be something new and shiny that may take years to be released to the public. All in all, the biggest tease of the entire event is the possibility for a wireless charging option for Tesla’s. This makes sense for a new “gimmick” that Tesla could offer. The ability to pull

Image Source: ZenBusiness It is no argument that TikTok is one of, if not, the most addictive video watching app to hit the market since Vine. The app allows users to scroll and see videos in a short burst which can make it so addicting. One of the great features TikTok has behind the scenes is its amazing algorithm. The company behind TikTok, ByteDance, has taken a lot of backlashes for its application. The Chinese company is aware of how addicting its app is because some governments have worked with the company to make “versions” of the application for their country and show certain content. Since, ByteDance has come out and said they are working on a feature of the application to add more security and what the user is allowed to see. ByteDance says this will work by blocking specific hashtags, users and even bring a feature to users that under the age of 18 to a limit of 1 hour a day on the application. Not only has the application become extremely addicting for many users but the s

Valve's Steam Deck - After 1 year

              Image : Valve Steam Deck Valve is known for its software and game delivery platform Steam. After years of trying to get the hardware right from the Steam Machine to the Steam Link , Valve has finally hit a home run with the Steam Deck. The Steam Deck is easily described as the "PC Nintendo Switch" like gaming handheld. Although people are calling it the “Switch Killer ”, this handheld is in a whole different category.       Device Specs   Processor   The Steam Deck is sporting a custom AMD/APU combo. CPU: Zen 2 4c/8t, 2.4-3.5GHz (up to 448  GFlops  FP32), GPU: 8 RDNA 2 CUs, 1.0-1.6GHz (up to 1.6  TFlops  FP32), APU power: 4-15W.    Display   Since the Steam Deck is a portal device it makes sense that it would have a small display. The screen is a 7in, 1200 x 800px (aspect ratio) with a 60Hz refresh rate. This display is only capable of 720p but it is more than enough for the form factor. The Deck has been compared to lacking in the display department consideri
