The Nintendo Evo-Gem is a home console for the 10th Generation developed by Gear Games, who is one of Nintendo's second parties. It is planned to be released for the year of late 2016, but was delayed to 2022 as it is only the playtest and to avoid competition with it's own parent company's other gaming console, the Nintendo Switch, and also vigorous amount of testing to make it worthy, as well as in order to get in a more fitting line with the other two consoles announced, the Corona and the Visus Sphere.
To make relief, they also developed two launch titles bundled for the system, as well as three others available for 40$ in download and 60$ in retail. It have great 3rd party support but it have mediocre support from indie games in the beginning.
The goal of making this console is to "give out true video gaming aspects, as well as to make a more powerful and safer online experience". It received excellent reviews , mostly for being a powerhouse console compared to upcoming consoles and a true step up of the Wii U, but criticized for lack of initial Virtual Consoles. The initial cost is $350.
As a result of exciting previews and presentations as well as advantages, it has a ground-breaking sell of 1.5 millions units as of the release day. This makes it one of the fastest sold consoles of all times, and this also makes their bundled games as Evo-Gem's fastest selling games.
Since Gear Games wanted to focus on the gaming aspect, they invented a very unique OS (operation system) called the Super Gaming Operation System, or the SGOS for short. This allows it's games, Switch, Wii U and Wii games as well as Virtual Consoles to play constantly at clean maximum performance which makes the games almost lag-free, even during online play. It is often seem as one of the reasons of why the Evo-Gem is considered a powerhouse console for it's own generation. It also retain the Home-Portable hybrid gimmick from Switch.
Almost every game comes with True Player Mode; in this mode, the game itself is adjusted to the difficulty that matches old-schooled games without being impossible to beat and avoid as many fake difficulty elements as possible. It is optional and no achievements requires the use of the True Player Mode, but it is a good way to challenge real experts and to spice up the challenge.
The download version is as much performance as the the retail version does, but the retail version will allow the DLCs to be downloaded for free to make up for their more expensive price. However, the download version will be helpful if in case, there is out of retail stock of a game like what happened to Splatoon sales in Japan.
Since it is widely intended for safer and stronger online experience, it can also use Multiplayer Streaming, which allows the host to let players who don't have the same game the former one is playing to join, but can only uses what the host had unlocked so far. This can be played for free, but required any hosts who is authorized by Gear Games and also who have a legitimate copy of the game. This allows those who don't have the game but want to try it before to buying it can use Multiplayer Streaming as a clever way to see if it is worth to buy it or not.
Other internet features included are YouTube, Facebook, Tweeter, Netflex and hulu Plus, while also have a special DLC shop called Connext Market that the player can either pay the DLC with real money or uses D-Coins which is earned with D-Cards (real-life purchase cards) or by completing official achievements.
Sharing a mod made by the players is possible once the Mod is complete and safe to play. Shall it contains explicit materials or as a goal to insult the company, the inappropriate mod will be quickly taken down by the Gear Games agency.
As mentioned above, the constant maximum performance of the Evo-Gem will allows the players who uses the Connext connection to play online, with almost no lags at all and with smooth performance and always at 60fps, which accomplish their goal of better online experience very well.
Any users not respecting the conduct code will be banned for a week, then a month if it did it again. It can still do anything in a single player session but will not allowed for anything in online multiplayer, including the Multiplayer Streaming. Any attempt of hacking in online session will end the user to be banned for half a year, and then permanently.
There are two way to connect to the Internet; by the traditional way (which is available for free), or using the Connext for $6.99 per year (or $19.99 for "permanent", which is actually 25 years), which allow the near flawless and lag-free online play.
