Share

Don’t pull out your pokeballs yet, my fellow geeks, since many of these pokemon may be repulsive.  While the animals may be repugnant, the Pokemon infographic is awesome in that some poor soul took hours of time to search the anals of the ecosystem and find these creatures to use for the real life pokemon infographic.  Thank you, anonymous guy who is a web search master, has probably never left his house, and likes dill pickles. Also, Metapod?  You can eat dirt, …

Share

Metroid is a great series of games, and is arguably one of Nintendo’s greatest franchises!  We’ve had countless hours of fun playing as a beautiful woman, shooting creepy zombies with our giant blasters and running around like maniacs.  The thing that very few people realize, however, is the hidden value of Samus Aran and Metroid. Not only is it almost as fun as shooting the kids on your lawn with a potato gun, it can provide some valuable relationship lessons!     …

Super Smash Bros. 4 is a reality – this much, we know.  It was announced at last year’s E3, but has not been confirmed to be at this year’s convention by Nintendo or HAL Labarotory.  The game, which may or may not be entitled Super Smash Bros.

Iron Man Mode Blog Features Charitable Gamers Playing With One Life

Share

I received an email from this guy named Zeke, and he told me about Iron Man Mode: The Blog, and the interesting concept that surrounds it.  He, as well as a couple of other bloggers, each select a game to play, and they each get one life.  They blog about playing that game until they die (not in real life) and then they choose a new game when the next series begins. This is a concept that struck me as “pretty awesome,” …

Gold Xbox 360 Controller: So Shiny, Yet So Lackluster

Share

The Gold Xbox 360 Controller, which is a modded controller being auctioned off for $80 on eBay, is really not my thing.  Gadgetcustoms is a top-rated seller, so I’m sure the controller and the rapid fire functions both work great, but the design isn’t really jiving with me.  If you were going to spend a solid $80 on a modded Xbox 360 controller, why would you go for the “all gold” look as opposed to a controller with custom LEDs and buttons? …
