Famicom Dojo: GameCube Menu Secrets

Sean and Vinnk demonstrate some tricks with the GameCube System Menu — a couple of which have been known since the system launched (and involves pushing buttons, as you will see), and one more recently discovered with the aid of a video editor and a NinDB user with a penchant for earworms.

(More on the origins of these secrets and what they mean after the jump!)

Famicom Dojo: The Neo Geo Affair

Continuing the 16-bit wars after the introduction of the Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx-16, we turn to a “24-bit” system that was truly like the arcade machines that its competitors were trying to emulate.

Direct Link: Famicom Dojo Season 2: The Neo Geo Affair

Vinnk reveals his decade-long tryst with SNK’s Neo Geo Advanced Entertainment System, the one console in the 16-bit generation that made good on its promise of arcade-quality graphics on a home console, and the hefty price tag to back it up.

Famicom Dojo Podcast: User-generated Content

Does allowing gamers to create their own worlds within a game make that game better, or does it just excuse the developers from having to create any content themselves? Vinnk and Sean discuss their first experiences with user-generated content (on the NES!), the wonders of the Famicom Data Recorder, and which games they thought were helped or hampered by being able to draw dongs on the sides of racecars.
