Awaiting a re-write from Lozzykinz!!

 

I bought an OUYA on day of release last week.  For those who are unsure of what an OUYA is, it is a homebrew console running off the Android software. I will admit, I am a bit of an Android fan girl, and I got myself one, despite mixed reviews. Here is my break down of good and bad.ouya_0

And that’s my lowdown on the new android console.  One thing it clearly is missing is a decent catalogue of games that is easy to browse through.  At the moment the store feels as though you are rummaging through a jumble sale, as each category isn’t categorised well at all.  Hopefully this can be improved on in an update, but you can’t help but feel that although it has lots of potential, it has been rushed out onto the market.

Judgement
Pros:
  • Slick, small design. Easy to carry about.
  • No messing with discs, everything is downloaded straight onto the console.
  • Some decent OUYA exclusive games.
  • Some decent indie games.
  • It's a fantastic idea and a nice way of getting Indie developers noticed.
  • You can make games for the console!
Cons:
  • The control pad is a little bulky.
  • The control pad has some issues with the buttons sticking.
  • The Internet is required, otherwise you cannot download anything.
  • A credit card is required as soon as the console turns on for the first time.
  • Needs more games!

Once upon a time, this all started out as a free baby Wordpress website. Then Naytoe took over and made it all professional...and we have never looked back since.

In my spare time I like to play games (obviously) and read. I'm a fan of DC Comics and manga.
