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

10 Things You Might Not Know About 'Die Hard'

Today is the 25th anniversary of "Die Hard," a movie that forever changed the landscape of American action filmmaking. Director John McTiernan brought in European sensibilities and fluid camera movements that were unheard of at the time, adding an artistic edge and much-needed stylistic flourishes to a genre largely defined by hulking he-men and an almost complete lack of aesthetic embroidery (seriously — look at other action movies from 1988 and try not to fall asleep). It was as much a game changer as "Avatar," but never heralded as such; instead it was quietly acknowledged as an admirable achievement while its artistic merits went largely unheralded.

In honor of the film's anniversary, we thought we'd run down ten things that you probably don't know about "Die Hard," a movie whose legendary status was recently cemented when an entire wall of the Fox lot was painted up to resemble the sequence where Bruce Willis

Donald Trump on Charlie Sheen: 'A great waste of a talent'

  • Pop2it
Donald Trump might not have any say in the firing of Charlie Sheen, but he advises the actor to "get himself straightened out."

Shortly after the "Two and a Half Men" star filed a $100 million lawsuit against Warner Bros. Television and producer Chuck Lorre -- having been dismissed by the studio from the CBS sitcom at the start of the week -- the real-estate tycoon and overseer of NBC's "The Celebrity Apprentice" says he is regarding Sheen's ongoing situation with concern.

"I think it's a great waste of a talent," Trump tells Zap2it. "He spent a lot of time at (the Trump-owned Palm Beach, Fla., country club) Mar-a-Lago because Brooke (Mueller, Sheen's estranged wife) is the daughter of a member. I got to know him through that whole connection, but I tell you, it is a shame."

Trump adds he wouldn't necessarily reach out to Sheen: "I think it takes more than that.

Episode Recap: CSI: NY - 7.01: "The 34th Floor"

  • PopStar
This new season 7 episode opens where it left off last season, with Shane Casey (Edward Furlong) holding Danny (Carmine Giovinazzo) and their baby at gun point in their home. This was Lindsay's (Anna Belknap) attempt to play 'macho woman', now that Stella (Melina Kanakaredes) has gone. No, really, Lindsay has even taken to wearing high-heeled stilettos (one of Stella's traits in the show.) Anyhoo, moving on - this cliff-hanger from last season, wasn't so much a hanging-off-cliff moment, waiting for Lindsay to fire the bullet and put us out of our misery in not having to watch her macho posturing and inflating nostrils, for too long, and kill Casey. This was CSI:ny's (TV) attempt to give this bland character some backbone and make her interesting, failing miserably. It'll never work, Lindsay's not your average Cat (Marg Helgenberger) or Sara (Jorga Fox) from CSI (TV) who can portray bucket loads of

You can be the big cheese, the next Phillip Schofield/Andi Peters and the saviour of Cbbc one minute and six months later you can be Chris Jarvis and on the panto circuit scrapheap. 50/50, It'll Never Work and occasional Record Breakers hostess Sally Gray was for a brief period at the end of the '90s quite a big deal.

Update: Kevin Greutert Legally Forced to Direct 'Saw VII 3D'

Well "game over" in our best Jigsaw voice. The nail is finally in the coffin and boy we can't imagine how great Saw VII 3D (hmmm a film in 3D? It'll never work!) is going to turn out now that they've contractually forced a director to do a film he so clearly does not want to be a part of. If only we could be a fly on the wall during production. Somehow we don't thik this will be the end of the Saw vs. Paranormal Activity fued though...

In a blog post from Kevin Greutert entitled "Woo hoo! Lawyers are sending me to Canada tomorrow to firect Saw VII!" he writes this:

"I just had the task of telling my 83 year old mother that no, I'm not going to be allowed to direct the movie we were all so excited about when my family last got together, and that
