  1. Dad Reprograms a Zelda Game to Make “FemLink” a Female Role-Model for His Daughter

    Parents will do anything for their children. Case in point: When father/gamer Mike Hoye plays The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker with his daughter, he reads her the story. When he does, he changes all the pronouns so that Link is actually a little girl, and Zelda is her little brother. Why does he do it? In a world where most of gaming classic heroes are men trying to a damsel in distress, Mr. Hoye wants his daughter to grow up thinking that girls can be just as heroic as boys. After doing this for some time, Hoye got fed up with having to do all the work in his head, so he took the time to reprogram the game with his own gender-swapped version of the script.

  2. Disc-less GameCube Handheld Is Awesome, Looks Like a PSP

    Techknott, the man behind this mobile console hack, has a pretty serious history with console modification including a portable Dreamcast and a cool flip-top, portable GameCube. This time, it appears he decided to take things a step further and make his new GameCube portable disc-less, also giving it a control scheme that includes actual analog sticks, something the PSP never got. In order to be disc-less this device boots ROMs off of SD cards, which is questionably legal and undeniably awesome. For reference, the console is about 1.5 times bigger than your standard GameCube controller, which isn't bad considering this one has a GameCube inside it. The only downside is that it doesn't have a battery pack which means it needs to stay on its leash. Still, if techknott really wanted to take this on the road, I'm sure adding batteries would be a walk in the park for someone with this kind of l33t sk1llz.

  3. Nintendo’s Long Legacy of Stubbornness

    With the release of a third generation Wii Remote containing features that should've been in the controller the first or second time around, Nintendo continues a longstanding company tradition that many fans may not associate with the famed developer: Being stubborn. From gamers to non-gamers, "Nintendo" is a household name across the world. Just about everyone can at least identify Mario if given a picture of a fat dude with a big mustache in red overalls. The venerable brand has a storied history full of wonderful ups and terrible downs. Nintendo has left many a legacy, from the success of portable gaming, popularizing the analog stick and force feedback controllers, and even bringing gaming to a much wider audience. But Nintendo is very, very stubborn.
