Ocean Software started development for a Green Lantern game back in 1991, or to be more specific, the first of three versions. The studio has previous successes releasing DC Universe games on the Amiga and PCs, so they wanted to branch out to home consoles. Unfortunately, the Green Lantern project was canceled after just a few months, that is until…the title was revived in 1993. At that time, they reused assets from their other games to continue development. Read more for a rare look at gameplay from this unreleased game.
F-Zero was originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in Japan on November 21, 1990, with the North America launch nearly a year later during August 1991. Some may remember it on the Virtual Console service across multiple Nintendo platforms over the years and as part of the Super NES Classic Edition in 2017. For those who’ve never heard of this game, it basically takes place in the year 2560, where multi-billionaires with lethargic lifestyles created a new form of entertainment based on the Formula One races called “F-Zero”.

CD Projekt Red collaborated with NVIDIA when developing Cyberpunk 2077 to add DXR ray tracing as well as DLSS technology to the game. This new behind-the-scenes tech demo shows off all the ray-traced shadows, ray-traced reflections and more that will be in the game, running on NVIDIA RTX hardware.

Finding a sealed copy of Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES is a feat in itself, and one graded Wata 9.2 A+ even less likely. This variant, with “Bros.” formatted to the left on the front of the box (on top of Mario’s glove), just might be the rarest of them all. That is why when one of them popped up on Heritage Auctions, collectors quickly bid up the price to over $100,000, and in the end, this pristine copy sold for a whopping $156,000.

Spain-based BCN3D Technologies wanted to recreate the SNES version of Rainbow Road for Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the franchise. So, a team of two engineers and ten employees used their own 3D printing machines to build a 4,000 piece track that spans 16.4-feet long (5-meters). For anyone who has their own 3D printer, the company filmed a short video detailing the process, and it’s a lot more interesting than using random objects to build a course.

No, this isn’t a gag product, but rather the world’s first ever self-cooling six pack that also plays video games, or at least that’s what Bud Light claims. The BL6 is touted as ½ koozie, ½ projector & ½ gaming console. It would be simple enough to just put a tablet inside this thing, but it’s actually a Windows 10 PC powered by an Intel i7-1065G7 processor (3.90-GHz Max Turbo frequency), and 16GB of RAM. There are several pre-loaded games, including Tekken 7, Soul Calibur 6, RBI 20 Baseball, and more. Read more for a video and additional information.

It doesn’t use smoothing, motion or parasitic counts to achieve this either. Read more for a hands-on video review and additional information.
