Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao Fight in 8-Bit Style!

Posted by on May 3, 2015 in Gaming, News | 0 comments

While I’m not a big fan of boxing, I did happen to catch the overly-hyped Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight last night. Like many others, I was cheering on for Manny Pacquiao to take the win, but it just wasn’t meant to be. More disappointingly, the fight did not live up to the hype, as it was definitely NOT the “fight of the century.”

All that being said, Noober Goober Gaming created the big fight in 8-BIT Punch-Out! style! Check out the entertaining video below:



While the video was created before the match, it is eerily accurate to what went on in the real Mayweather vs. Pacquiao match.

Chrono Maps Now Available on Google Play!

Chrono Maps Now Available on Google Play!

Posted by on Mar 10, 2015 in Gaming, General, Mobile, News | 0 comments

Hey guys, I wanted to share an Android app that I developed and released recently onto the Google Play Store.


The app is CHRONO MAPS, an interactive map app that displays the world maps of different eras from Chrono Trigger. It is derived from a Dragon Quest map app that I released a while ago. It can be thought of as Google Maps (somewhat) for Chrono Trigger. 😀 You can use multi-touch gestures to pinch and tap to zoom in and out of the maps.

 
Going for maximum nostalgia, CHRONO MAPS mimics the graphical interface style of the SNES version of Chrono Trigger and uses all sorts of Chrono Trigger sprites. The app also features music and sound effects from the SNES version of Chrono Trigger.

With 2015 being the 20th anniversary of Chrono Trigger, CHRONO MAPS is my tribute to the 20th anniversary of Chrono Trigger! :roll: If you have an Android device, check out the app! I’ll be making improvements to the app from time to time.
