I don’t normally want to sacrifice the battery life, especially if I have a dedicated gaming portable like my Nintendo 3DS with me. But sometimes, smartphone games grab me, especially if they play quick and have a social aspect to them.</p> Thu, 13 Mar 2014 17:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 31431 at http://kmuw.org Show Off Your Knowledge In 'QuizUp' Your Move: New 'Zelda' Removes The Tedium, Keeps The Fun http://kmuw.org/post/your-move-new-zelda-removes-tedium-keeps-fun <p></p><p></p><p>Nintendo’s <em>The Legend of Zelda</em> series is practically mythical at this point.

Perhaps it is for this reason that both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, which have been out for less than a month, have both already outsold the Wii U. Now a game has come out, though, that makes the Wii U worth picking up.</p> Thu, 05 Dec 2013 18:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 27205 at http://kmuw.org Your Move: Mario's Back, And He's Beautiful Your Move: The Future of Sharing http://kmuw.org/post/your-move-future-sharing <p></p><p>I got my PlayStation 4 this week, and I’ve spent a lot of time with a few of its new features.

But, honestly, I haven't had a lot of time to play any of them. I've been immersed at work in front of a computer screen.
