Continuing with our promised pre-E3 coverage, we have two new Pokémon related videos planned for release today, and here’s the first one.

We’ve been playing Pokken Tournament here for quite a few weeks and we may have a video review of the game coming in the near future. However, while you may know that new copies of the game come with a Shadow Mewtwo Amiibo card that can unlock a Shadow Mewtwo early in the game, you may not know that the game has support for every other Amiibo figure out there.

That’s right, you can unlock random goodies in Pokken Tournament using Amiibo figures. Here’s all you have to do:

Pokken Tournament is out now on the Wii U.

How To Transfer Items and Pokemon From Pokemon Dream Radar to Pokemon Black 2 or Pokemon White 2 November 23, 2015

Got a new How-To Video to help all of you take full advantage of an older game which I have only now started to play.  When it was first released in 2012, a lot of reviewers wrote off Pokémon Dream Radar as a completely useless application not worth your money.  Well, they’re wrong.  If you are like me, and can’t stop playing Pokémon Black 2 or Pokémon White 2 on a 3DS/2DS system, you can enhance your game experience and use the Dream Radar app to transfer any Pokémon or items captured in the application to either game, and trust me, this is GREAT.

How do you perform this transfer?  Take a look below.

Pokémon transferred to a Generation 5 Pokémon game can be transferred to the Pokémon Bank.

Pokémon Black 2, Pokémon White 2 are out now for the Nintendo DS.  Pokémon Dream Radar is out now on the Nintendo eShop for any 3DS or 2DS system.

Maniac explains the process on how to transfer the unique Pokémon you can earn in the Pokémon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire demo.

All you need is a Nintendo 3DS or 2DS, a full copy of Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire (either physical or retail) and the demo. The demo can be downloaded for free off the Nintendo eShop, and make sure to play the demo at least once before attempting a transfer.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are out now for the Nintendo 3DS or 2DS systems.

Maniac does a new How To Video for PC Gamers.  Your data is important and you want to be sure that you don’t lose it, even if your PC breaks or gets a virus.

Here’s the best way Windows 7 users (and Vista users too) can back up all of their important files.  All you need is an external Hard Drive (preferably USB 3.0) with a capacity greater than or equal to your computer’s primary Hard Drive.

How to Upgrade the PS4 Hard Drive March 6, 2015

The Playstation 4 shipped with only a 500GB Hard Drive and let’s face it, a combination of required installations, DLC and a great selection of digital only releases will fill that drive up pretty quickly.  Thankfully, Sony allows Playstation 4 owners to upgrade their hardware with new and improved Hard Drives, as long as they meet the Playstation 4’s specifications.

But how do you change the drive?  Well, I would recommend checking out this website to read Sony’s official procedure on how to perform the upgrade.  But words are really just words, you’re going to need to perform actions and sometimes reading instructions isn’t enough.  That’s why you can find a detailed step-by-step How-To video which should help you through the process below.

You will need a recent version of the Playstation 4’s Software once you replace your drive.  You can find and download that software right here.

Site Video Updates and a Special Request March 2, 2015

Apologies for the lack of site videos recently, but there is a very good reason for it that I’ll get into later.  It’s no secret that my How-To Videos are some of the most popular videos I’ve produced for this website, and recently we’ve been planning to make more of them, but we just haven’t had the opportunity to do any more until now.  Maniac’s trusty Playstation 3 has started acting up on him, and instead of replacing it, he’s going to try to fix it by replacing its eight year old internal Hard Drive with something newer.  The Playstation 3 has excellent tools for backing up and restoring user data, and if you plan to replace your PS3’s Hard Drive, you’re going to want to know how to use them.

But why stop at upgrading a PS3’s Hard Drive?  Why not show how to replace a Playstation 4 Hard Drive as well?  It can be done with easily obtainable equipment, and we’re going to show you how very soon.

 

How to Update Pokemon X and Pokemon Y November 5, 2014

A few days ago, Nintendo released the 1.3 update for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y and are now requiring that users have it installed before they can make use of the games’ online features.

Updating games on the Nintendo 3DS isn’t exactly a straightforward process like on most other consoles. Game updates typically need to be downloaded from the Nintendo eShop, which requires an Internet connection and the most recent 3DS firmware already installed to access it.

Once you have all that taken care of, watch the video below to see how to update your game.

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are out now for the Nintendo 3DS.

How to Update the Xbox One Controller March 9, 2014

A extra feature of the March 2014 update was a firmware update for the Xbox One controller.  From what I’ve heard, this new controller firmware was released in cooperation with Titanfall’s development team, and should make the controller work better and be more responsive, on top of making the controller compatible with Microsoft’s new Xbox One Stereo Headset.

Unfortunately, the controller does not automatically update with the Xbox One when the March 2014 is installed.  You will need to do a few extra things to update your controller.  However, it’s a simple process, and here’s how to do it.
