NES Classic hack adds 30 games with USB cable

NES Classic hack adds 30 games with USB cable

Despite launching in the last few months of the year, Nintendo's NES Classic Edition turned out to be one of the hottest devices of 2016. But other than being incredibly hard to find over the holiday season, the only real drawback of the tiny retro game console is that it's limited to the 30 titles that come pre-installed. Fortunately modders and hackers have been hard at work at rectifying that problem, and the latest successful trick manages to add another 30 games over a USB cable.

Why did CyanogenMod die? What is LineageOS? All the important details

The Cyanogen company did not shut down, nor did the operating system CyanogenMod - it'll just change names. CyanogenMod OS will rebrand as LineageOS and will be separate from Cyanogen Inc., the company, which will operate separate from the open source OS. Those with CyanogenMod installed on phones or tablets right now should consider installing a more basic version of Android now, as no new support for the operating system will be offered.

Lenovo opens the Moto Mod floodgates, commits to 12 per year

If you're a fan of the modular Moto Z, then you're apparently in for a treat, as Lenovo has committed to releasing 12 Moto Mods per year. The Moto Z family has already received seven different mods since it launched back in July, so Lenovo is already throwing a lot of weight behind its modular phone. From here it seems like things will only get better for Moto Z owners, which is definitely an exciting proposition.

Motorola, Indiegogo team up to push Moto Mods forward

Both LG and Motorola have revealed their own version of modular attachments to smartphones, but, unlike LG, Motorola seems to be really serious about it. For one, it has announced more such Moto Mods for purchase. For another, it is providing a Moto Mod Dev Kit to help developers and tinkerers make their own mods. And now, to further help those mod dreams come true, Motorola is partnering with crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to help such dreamers find funding for their bright, wild, and hopefully useful ideas.

PlayStation 4 getting mod support for Skyrim and Fallout 4 after all

PlayStation 4 getting mod support for Skyrim and Fallout 4 after all

Last month, Bethesda announced that mod support for Fallout 4 and Skyrim wouldn't be coming to PS4. The company didn't delve into too many specifics about why this was, though it did say that Sony wouldn't "approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition." It would appear that Sony has changed its mind on the matter, with Bethesda announcing that mods for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition with come to PS4 after all.

No Fallout 4 or Skyrim mods on PS4, Bethesda confirms

No Fallout 4 or Skyrim mods on PS4, Bethesda confirms

After players have been waiting for months now, developer Bethesda has revealed that its games on PlayStation 4 — specifically Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim remaster — will not support the anticipated mods feature. Now, this isn't a case of Bethesda being jerks and having lied to us all this time, or even one of them not being able to get the feature to work on PS4. Instead, it seems that Sony has ruled that it will not approve user mods in a way that Bethesda feels they "should work."

NVIDIA reveals ‘Vault 1080’ mod for Fallout 4

NVIDIA recently unleashed a slew of new graphics cards, but judging from a new announcement on the NVIDIA blog, that isn't all the company has been working hard on. NVIDIA announced today that it will soon be releasing a mod all its own for Bethesda's Fallout 4, and just as you'd expect from a company that primarily deals in GPUs, this one is meant to push graphics cards a bit harder than the base game.

Android root – the lowdown and pitfalls of the super user

Android root – the lowdown and pitfalls of the super user

Our smartphones and tablets today have become powerful computers, almost matching the cheapest "netbook" grade laptops. We feel they can almost do anything and everything. In theory, they can. In reality, however, they are limited by the boundaries that platform makers like Google and Apple impose on them. Some of those limitations are inherent in the platform itself or the hardware it runs on. Others, however, can be unlocked by the process now known as rooting (for Android) or jailbreaking (for iOS). In the past, rooting was not only something for power users to play with but somewhat even recommended for more adventurous ones to squeeze out the best functionality from their smartphones. But does rooting still have that sway today? What do we gain and what do we lose when we set our smartphones free? Read on the find out.

New Doom features get recreated in the original games

New Doom features get recreated in the original games

If you haven't picked up the new Doom game, I highly recommend it. While the multiplayer leaves a lot to be desired, the single-player campaign is well worth it. If you can't afford it, or your machine can't handle it, that's okay. You can soon get some of the new Doom flavor in the original games.

Add navigation to your Escape’s MyFord Touch on the cheap

If you have a Ford Escape with MyFord Touch interface, you've probably noticed that there's an option for navigation. Unfortunately, if your SUV didn't come with that feature, it'll cost a fair bit to enable it. The price is somewhere around $900, which is a lot to add simple navigation to a device. But one person has found a clever way of getting around that.

Crash Bandicoot PS2 mod is complete with Aku Aku mask

Crash Bandicoot PS2 mod is complete with Aku Aku mask

There are a few titles that really stand out when I think about the original PlayStation. Final Fantasy VII, Spyro the Dragon, and of course, Crash Bandicoot. Sadly, only two of these series are still alive and well (okay, I wouldn't say that Skylanders is doing Spyro any real justice) with poor Crash being left out in the cold. However, his fans haven't forgotten him.
