Clingo Universal Game Pad Review

A great handheld alternative controller if you will

by Arthur Kotsopoulos

Thanks to MobileZap, I was sent a nifty little mobile phone accessory by the name of the Clingo Universal Game Pad. What this peripheral is, is like a controller with a sticky adhesive pad that you can put almost any size phone on, and play away at your favourite games.

There’s no installation, no waiting period, you just slap that phone on and away you go. Almost instantly what I realized, was that the controller despite its glossy texture is easily susceptible to sweat. If you find yourself on the train and it’s crazy hot outside, your palms will start sweating, which then makes the controller a little hard to hold.

You can easily just wipe your hands down with a towel or on your pants, but with many products today slowly stating to feature sweat-resistant matte finishes, you would hope something like this would have it to.

new super mario bros u screenshots oxcgn #13It’s been a while since we’ve had another console side scrolling Mario title, but Mario has finally burst onto our screens in [near] full HD in the Wii U launch title New Super Mario Bros. U.

While the formula on display here is anything but new, this side scrolling platformer maintains the high standard set by its predecessors all those years ago and is a must buy for all Wii U owners.

The Console DayZ

First, take a gaming niche that is nearly completely worn out and overdone.

Second, use an incredible new console and its intuitive controller to redefine how players interact with this game.

Third, use the new console’s social aspects to its full capacity and intertwine it with the game wherever possible.

Fourth and finally, take inspiration from some of the most influential games of recent years.

When you follow all of these steps, the end result is ZombiU.

It’s the standout hardcore launch title of the Wii U, and at the end of the day, is one of the most brilliant, misunderstood games of recent years.

English head bashing this way!

OXCGN’s Wii U System Review

Is this truly the next generation?

This has been one of the most prolonged console generations in the history of video games.

While traditional generations have lasted anywhere from three to five years, this one technically began in 2005 with the release of the Xbox 360, and the other two consoles in 2006 and has lasted until where we currently are.

Now, Nintendo has followed in Microsoft’s footsteps and released the Wii U a year (or possibly even more) ahead of the competition.

Is this truly the next generation, or is Nintendo merely playing catch-up with a fancy controller?

Advancement or more of the same? Find out…

Nintendo makes a U-turn

With Nintendo having already teased us with a pre-E3 video (showing us the Gamepad redesign along with the announcement of Miiverse and the prayer-answering Pro controller) the gaming world held their breath for some real surprises.

Nintendo had left everyone scratching their heads after last years baffling Wii U reveal and it was time to see whether Nintendo could finish what they started twelve months ago.

Instead, I’m still left scratching my head.
