Retro Freak can play old console games if you have cartridges

There is no shortage of devices and software that will let you relive your youth's gaming days by letting you play that generation's console titles. But this retro console, appropriately named Retro Freak, is admittedly and curiously different. It makes a boast no other custom-made console has so far been able to make. It claims to be able to play any and all old console games, from Famicom all up to the more recent Game Boy Advance. That, however, seems only possible if you actually have the game cartridge at hand.

‘Cities: Skylines’ update: some mods lost, but tunnels arrive

The game that lets you create your own cities, aptly named Cities: Skylines, has received a pretty big update today, and with it comes the addition of a bunch of new buildings and oft-requested tunnels.
