Atlus Late to Catch Up on Memes, Sends Press Release With Lolcats in It
In terms of funny video game company correspondence, I don’t think it gets better than Valve’s multi-purpose mail-outs. Now Atlus is also trying to spice up their press releases, as shown by this e-mail that Aeropause‘s Adam Englebright received: The email’s continued below, but I think you get why I said that they’re trying.

Tabletop Pong: More Fun to Build Than to Play
The Evil Mad Scientists are at it again, flexing their brains and soldering stuff in their lab-or-a-to-ry. Their latest creation still does not make them evil or mad, just creative, resourceful and geeky. They’re trying to make a real world version of one of the oldest video games, PONG.

Nexus One… Thousand: Google’S Phone Gets Upsized

Nexus One… Thousand: Google’S Phone Gets Upsized
I hate you Xeni Jardin; I hate you and your article’s deceptive title! Nice find though: Google set up a very detailed and very large model of their “not blow-you-away good looking” Nexus One phone. It even has the same ports and the camera and flash – albeit the last two were only painted on the thing.

War Machine Costume: Ready for Cosplay Battles
Superherohype forum member Masterle247 must be the Tony Stark of cosplay. He’s making a War Machine costume in time for the release of Iron Man 2, and man the suit is looking sweet. So sweet that even Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau approves of it.

PS3 Wireless Visual Interface: Screw the Wand Sony, Give Us This One Instead.
It’s not even 2010 but I already know what I want for next year’s Christmas. Modder/genius/my new Santa Claus techknott – a disciple of no other than master modician Ben Heck – recently unveiled one of the most awesome pieces of hardware I have ever seen: a PS3 wireless visual interface (WVI).

Adidas Star Wars: Force Milk Franchise!

Adidas Star Wars: Force Milk Franchise!
If you liked Marc Ecko’s line of Star Wars hoodies then you should prepare your wallet for another deluge of Star Wars-themed gear, although this time it’s from Adidas, so most of them are shoes, and unlike the detailed Ecko hoodies, some of them are just classic designs slapped with a Star Wars name and a palette swap.

The Geek Pocket Watch: Solve for X

The Geek Pocket Watch: Solve for X
I’ve seen a couple of math clocks and watches before, but this geeky pocket watch must be the all-time champ; a product that caters to a subset of a subset of people. You can order the geek pocket watch at Uncommon Goods for $85 – ($0 x $1) + $32 -$32 (USD).

Robot Fires Ping Pong Balls as a High Tech, but Fairly Boring Prank
A member of the University of Pennsylvania’s Modlab spent the summer at Willow Garage, makers of the door-opening, self-plugging PR2 robot.

My Little Colossus is Too Cute to be Slain

My Little Colossus is Too Cute to be Slain
Until recently, I wasn’t aware that there’s a diabolically awesome trend that involves customizing My Little Pony figures, like this horrifying L4D Hunter Pony. Shame on me. Time to catch up! deviantART member Blondeyetti took a pony, applied some “Sculpey, stone effect spray paint, acrylics and “burnt grass” flocking” to come up with a seventeeth being for Wander to defeat.

Star Wars Weather Forecast Tells You if the Frost is With You

Star Wars Weather Forecast Tells You if the Frost is With You
One of the most absurd things about the Star Wars universe is the fact that the planets are differentiated mostly by their singular weather conditions. If you see a snowy scene, then you’re looking at Hoth.

Pong Prom: the Gamer’S Way of Asking Someone to Dance

Pong Prom: the Gamer’S Way of Asking Someone to Dance
Ed Keeble must be smitten with a fellow gamer, because there is no way that his gimmick would work with other people. The aforementioned gimmick is Pong Prom, and here’s how it works: “Participants don specially-designed hoodies and engage in a game of Pong by slow dancing with each other.”

R2-D2 Statue Armed With All of the Tools an Astromech Needs

R2-D2 Statue Armed With All of the Tools an Astromech Needs
Ah Artoo. Fixer of robots and ships, hacker of computers, opener of doors, bleeper of bloops, carrier of Death Star schematics, witness to the Skywalker legacy. If there’s one word that I associate with that lovable astromech droid, it’s “useful”.

Mythbusters’ Adam and Jamie Get Busted!

Mythbusters’ Adam and Jamie Get Busted!
Even though it seems that the scientific sleuths of Mythbusters have run out of actual myths to test, we can’t deny that their show has brought us a ton of geeky fun throughout the years. From building a platoon of (literal) foot soldier robots to try and wreck a bridge, to trying to put out fire with fire, Adam and Jamie have gone to great lengths to pursue the truth in the name of science and fun.
