If you have a Nintendo 3DS portable gaming console for quite some time now, you’ve probably heard or come across the term “custom firmware”. Custom firmware, as the name implies, is a firmware that does more functionalities than that of the original firmware released by a gaming console’s manufacturer, in this case, the Nintendo 3DS.

The Nintendo 3DS has become a widely popular portable gaming console mainly because of its amazing features. The fact that you can have two screens and use them simultaneously is an amazing thing to do. Furthermore, the portable gaming console also has a Stylus pen that allows you to make use of the dual screens in a more fine-tuned way.

But, did you know that the Nintendo 3DS can do more stuff than the official firmware released by Nintendo would allow? Yes, that is right, you can unlock a vast number of functionalities by using either an R4 3DS card or a custom firmware.

For those of you who do not know, if you want to use an R4 3DS card, you need to have a custom firmware installed in your Nintendo 3DS. This is because the official firmware will render your R4 3DS card inoperable, and that is something you do not want, right?

Some of the firmware’s highlights are the ability to play region-free games, autoboot, and custom splash screens.

If you want to install this custom firmware on your Nintendo 3DS, here are the steps:

  1. Make sure you make a Nand backup of your current Nintendo 3DS setup.
  2. After making the backup, download the Reinand custom firmware package on the internet.
  3. Extract the contents and put them in the root folder of your microSD card.
  4. Fire up Cubic Ninja and use the Ninjhax exploit.
  5. After doing the exploit, you will then be presented with an option to run the Reinand Loader, choose that and allow it to install. The Nintendo 3DS might restart a few times but don’t worry, this is normal.
  6. After a brief installation period, the Nintendo 3DS will start one more time and you will be greeted with a welcome screen. Congratulations! You’ve finally installed the on your Nintendo 3DS!

Rayman Legends Game for the Nintendo Wii U ( admin posted on February 10th, 2016 )

Nintendo is a gaming company that has a plethora of great platform games. Today, we are going to talk about a particular platformer that has garnered numerous awards and critical acclaim.

The Rayman Legends Game for the Nintendo Wii U is the direct sequel to the Rayman Origins. Rayman series are touted to be great because of its fun gameplay, superb soundtrack, and fantastic visuals.

This game has been released in numerous platforms but it was used to be a Nintendo Wii U exclusive.

The story is about Rayman and his friends, Globox, and the Teensies. All of them were sleeping for 100 years because they’ve defeated “The Magician”, or so they thought… During their slumber, the Bubble Dreamer’s Nightmares grew in strength and numbers and they would later be controlled by the Magician to wreak havoc upon the land.

Seeing that this is going to be a huge threat, Murfy, Rayman’s friend and flying encyclopedia, wake Rayman and his friends up and warned them of the impending doom.

The only way to stop the Magician and the “dark teensies” is to rescue the 10 princesses of the land. One of the princesses, Barbara, will be available as a playable character once you rescue her.

There are 5 dark teensies in the game. Once you’ve defeated the first four, the last dark teensie will have immeasurable power and is now called the “Pure Nightmare”. Once defeated, the game has now ended. If you’ve rescued 400 teensies before beating the Pure Nightmare, you will be awarded with a new stage called the “Living Dead Party”, complete with 10,000 lums and 6 invasion paintings.

The Rayman Legends Game for the Nintendo Wii U takes advantage of the Wii U’s gamepad. During the course of the game, there will be numerous instances where your friend, Murfy, would be of great use.

Murfy can do a variety of things such as create pavements for you to walk on, unlock hidden pathways, and so much more! In single player mode, Murfy can be controlled with the Nintendo Wii U’s gamepad. Should you control Murfy, Rayman will be controlled by an AI.

Rayman is not only a single player game but you can also enjoy this game with your friends! Up to 4 players can play simultaneously which makes this platform game a sure hit for the masses.

You can originally control Rayman, Globox, and the teensies at first. But, once you’ve unlocked Barbara, you can use her as well as her other teensies as well.

As previously mentioned, Rayman Legends Game for the Nintendo Wii U has been highly praised. The game has just fantastic and vibrant visuals and the graphics are just awesome. It really utilizes the Wii U’s hardware prowess.

Not only that but the intuitive controls and the actual gameplay is something to be happy about. It’s fun and the game is never boring. Some levels also provide great challenges, so you are assured that you’re not going to breeze through all of the levels.

With 120 levels and 40 remastered ones, there is plenty of action for everybody! Four players can play at a time, and although it can present with some screen real estate problems, expect you and your buddies to have so much fun playing the game!

Rayman Legends Game for the Nintendo Wii U is one of the best games for the platform and one that you should try out!

Best Nintendo games console ( admin posted on December 1st, 2014 )

Nintendo has been one of the most popular brands among all gaming consoles for several years now. For many years since its inception, Nintendo games consoles have been the highest selling products in their category. From small gaming gadgets to making virtual gaming larger than life, Nintendo has attempted many challenging initiatives and have succeeded more often than frequently.

Here are the best Nintendo games consoles over the years, the products that made the company a brand, loved by millions around the world.

  • Not many may now relate to the Nintendo 64 but it was the thing to possess when it was launched. The classic Super Mario 64, the Star Fox 64, Donkey Kong 64 and Ocarina of Time among many other games are still a favorite for many gamers. The graphics and the controls were both amazing in the Nintendo 64. The significance of Nintendo 64 was not confined to Nintendo games consoles and how the company’s fortunes soared but the impact the device and its games had on the gaming world. It was an evolution of sorts that changed the entire concept of virtual and portable gaming, for the better.
  • Nintendo Gamecube is often rated as the absolute finest among all Nintendo games consoles. This gadget did not sell as well as the Nintendo 64 or some of its subsequent models but those who owned and still own a Gamecube swear their allegiance to none other.
  • Nintendo Wii was a game changer in more ways than one. Not much needs to be said about the Nintendo Wii. The popularity of Super Smash Bros and the sales numbers of the device speaks for itself. While Nintendo Wii may not remain the best forever but it still remains to be one of the most popular Nintendo games consoles ever. It is also considered by many to be the best among all its contemporaries.
  • Super Nintendo NES System stood its ground with many upgrades and the key takeaway was its controls which were even better than the Nintendo 64.
  • Wii U, one of the more recent Nintendo games consoles, is also a fascinating device. With its third party games, something that was not always a pro of Nintendo games consoles, and some really amazing HD versions of old games, the Wii U is certainly a class apart from the erstwhile models; not to forget the wonderful gamepad that comes along with the device.
