The evolution of handheld videogaming in 17 consoles

Ryan Lambie Nov 16, 2017

There's more to handhelds than the Game Boy. We take a look at how mobile gaming has changed over the decades...

It goes without saying that handheld games have come a long way over the past 35 or-so years. From electronic bleepy things that were little more than glorified calculators, portable technology is now almost unrecognisable in 2017.

Back in 1989, the world collectively shrieked with excitement at the thought of playing Tetris on a bus. By the early years of the 21st century, we were finally able to type angry messages on Twitter from the top deck of the number 45 from Wellingborough without a second thought.

Yes, mobile phones and tablets have changed the way we do just about everything, from navigating around cities to connecting with friends. But while those

Psx: Another strong conference from Sony at PlayStation Experience

PlayStation Experience 2015 is kicking off in San Francisco today with the keynote speech. Sony set the bar pretty high last year with their inaugural conference, and their conference game generally has been strong in the last couple of years. Is this going to continue the trend, or is this where it all goes downhill? Let’s find out.

The keynote kicks off with an Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End trailer. The graphics are phenomenal. We see Nate meet up with his brother, Sam, voiced by Troy Baker, after a long time apart. It appears there’s dialogue options in the new game. The PlayStation friendly crowd cheered for that. No new gameplay was shown, but at this point, we don’t need it. And nor should we want it. Given the track record of Naughty Dog, Uncharted 4 should be a stellar action game, and the less we know about it the better.

Tony Palmer: he's with the band

They were music megastars, and they all opened up to him. As Tony Palmer's best films resurface, the documentarian talks to Phelim O'Neill about Leonard Cohen's tears, John Lennon's fake beard – and the day Liberace invited him into his hot tub

Tony Palmer was studying moral sciences at Cambridge University in the 1960s when a moderately famous band arrived in town. "I got a call to attend this press conference the Beatles were holding, to cover it for the college paper," he recalls. "They'd had a No 1 single or two by then, so they were very well known – but not yet intergalactic. Afterwards, John Lennon came up and asked me why I hadn't asked them any questions. I told him I found the whole thing pretty silly. He laughed, and when I told him I was studying moral sciences,

Clara Bow, Andrei Tarkovsky, Audrey Hepburn Movies

Clara Bow, Mantrap What do Andrei Tarkovsky, Edward G. Robinson, Clara Bow, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Audrey Hepburn have in common? Easy. They'll all be featured in some form or other at the Library of Congress' Packard Campus in Culpeper, Virginia, in May. [Packard Campus screening schedule.] Andrei Tarkovsky will be represented by the classic sci-fier Solaris (1971), billed as the Soviet Union's answer to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, and by the classic period drama Andrei Rublev (1969), a meditation on art, religion, spirituality, and human brutality and stupidity. A technicality: Solaris will actually be screened on April 27. Edward G. Robinson stars in The Little Giant (1933), a pre-Code crime comedy featuring Mary Astor. The (at the time) energetic Roy Del Ruth (The Maltese Falcon, Taxi!, Employees' Entrance) directed. Clara Bow is the star of Mantrap (1926), a fluffy romantic comedy of interest chiefly because of Bow and because neither of her two leading

Is Terrence Malick assuming Stanley Kubrick's mantle?

Terrence Malick's latest could be his first direct challenge to Stanley Kubrick's supremacy. John Patterson admires the audacity

The Tree Of Life suggests that Terrence Malick has now elected to engage openly and directly with the director he superficially most resembles: Stanley Kubrick. Both "reclusive" – or just intensely private – and gestating movies over decades with intense perfectionism, each man has constructed a genre distinct unto itself, built on an instantly recognisable style and underpinned by complete creative control. But Malick's wispy, gossamer qualities, his organic, handheld imagery – always seeking wonder in harmony and balance – seem in total opposition to Kubrick's head-on, locked-down fish-eye compositions, his fanatically precise tracking-shots, sudden upsurges of brutal violence and abiding pessimism.

But somehow they are united, yin-yang style, by Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, with which Malick seems to be in some kind of debate throughout The Tree Of Life. Picture the 24-year-old,
