Half Minute Hero for the Psp: the Twitter of Video Games

Half Minute Hero for the Psp: the Twitter of Video Games
RPGs are traditionally long and epic in scale for lots of good reasons, but a lot of RPGs have elements that add unnecessary length to the gameplay, like unskippable walls of text, unnecessarily slow-ass modes of transport and/or huge maps, quests with insane requirements, and of course the grinding. Oh…

The Force is Strong With This Cake

The Force is Strong With This Cake
This Darth Vader cake is simply amazing, no two ways about it. It’s well-designed (just look at those fabric folds!) and perhaps even better executed. But regardless, there is something completely hilarious (to me) about choosing a filling for your Darth Vader. Should there be choice here? Shouldn’t you take…

Outrageous Dead Rising 2 Trailer

Outrageous Dead Rising 2 Trailer
Dead Rising had some pretty ridiculous moments, certainly, though they tended to be sandwiched between runs to the bathroom and epic chainsawing sessions filled with flying limbs. For the sequel, it looks like Capcom is taking the craziness a few steps further. We’ve already seen the Vegas-like city and the…

Mp3 Grenade Redefines ‘Bombtrack’

Mp3 Grenade Redefines ‘Bombtrack’
As far as hacks and mods go, retrofitting a decommissioned hand grenade with mp3 playing guts is on the top of the clever and creative list. But as far as real world application is concerned? Well, I wouldn’t be whipping this thing out at work anytime soon. Or school. And…

Giant Gundam Statue Loses Its Head, Still Keeps Its Cool

Giant Gundam Statue Loses Its Head, Still Keeps Its Cool
While Japan’s Giant Gundam statue is but a distant memory, that doesn’t mean his dismembered body parts can’t be used for good. It turns out that despite the dismantling of the Giant Gundam his head still lives on. It’s sort of like that movie They Saved Hitler’s Brain, where they…

Wicked Evolution Jr: Half Van, Half Monster Robot, Half-Assed Transformation

Wicked Evolution Jr: Half Van, Half Monster Robot, Half-Assed Transformation
According to the list of Autobots at Wikipedia there are at least 8 Autobots that transform into vans or SUVs, including the popular ambulance Ratchet and the gutsy Ironhide. Unfortunately 0 out of those 8 Autobots are real (I think). This custom-built 750 lb.RC van – called Wicked Evolution Jr…

Insect Lab Steampunk Bugs: Creepy Crawly Critters
Personally, I’ve never been a fan of bugs – except maybe under my shoe – then they’re pretty cool. And these hybrid steampunk insects are enough to give me nightmares. Created by Mike Libby of Insect Lab, these steampunk bugs combine mechanical components with REAL bug carcasses. Libby takes preserved…

The Pac-Man That Eats Like a Meal

The Pac-Man That Eats Like a Meal
Look, you’ve got to eat. It’s just one of those things that’s pretty much unavoidable if you’re interested in staying alive. That does not, however, mean you have to restrict yourself to boring foods that don’t look like Pac-Man. Take an example from this sandwich. Live life to the fullest.…

Research firm Wedge Partners recently claimed that Apple will unveil updates to the iMac and the MacBook within “the next several weeks” (like what, 64 weeks from now?) The MacBook redesign “is likely to be limited,” (perhaps it’ll just be renamed to macbook. or MaCbOoK) while the new iMac will…

Edison the Grand Lamp:the Yao Ming of Lamps
With a height of 35.43 inches – almost 3 feet – the Edison the Grand lamp is 5 inches taller than Danny DeVito. Okay it’s not really taller than ol’ Penguin, but compared to other lamps, it’s practically a lighthouse.…

Halo Odst Hoodie Protects Against Cold, Not Orbital Drops
I’m not sure when Ecko embraced geek and gamer culture, but it’s pretty cool that they have. So now Halo fans – of which there are an abundant amount – can celebrate the launch of Halo 3: ODST by braving winter in their very own limited edition Ecko ODST hoodie.…

4 Dead 2 Demo Release Expected Next Month: Zombies Here We Come!

Tesla Turbine Pencil Sharpener: Not Even Half as Awesome as It Sounds

Tesla Turbine Pencil Sharpener: Not Even Half as Awesome as It Sounds
This invention reminds me of an episode in The Big Bang Theory where Leslie Winkle dips a banana into a container filled with liquid nitrogen, smashes the instantly frozen fruit with a hammer and then picks up the bits and chunks and puts them on top of her cereal. Why?…
