Game Development on the Nintendo DS, 3DS, ESP32, SDL… (KancolleMon Project, pt. 1)

If you haven’t checked my YouTube channel for some time, I’ve been working on using a ESP32 based Arduino-compatible board for a game project that has been suffering a lot of roadblocks.

PS Vita Mini-Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified (2012, Activision)

Call of Duty… the shooter series that has been rehashed almost every year or second year. To date, this is the only Call of Duty title on the Sony PlayStation Vita platform… I wonder why. I tested this game with my Henkaku 3.60 enabled phat PS Vita with and without OClockVita (Overclock Vita). With OClockVita disabled, the game was playable …
