Wii Breakfast Just Might be an Awesome Game. Not.

Wii Breakfast Just Might be an Awesome Game. Not.

“a Simple Plan”: Space Invaders Shirt Foils Alien Plot
Remember the movie Signs? And how the aliens’ weakness turned out to be water? Tell me, if those beings were intelligent enough to build vessels that could cross such vast distances (and sustain the passengers as well), why the hell couldn’t they tell that the planet that they’re attacking is mostly made up of stuff that will kill them?

Brain Age: Flash Version

Brain Age: Flash Version
Wanna know how old your brain is? How old are you? Then that’s how old your brain is too. But this Japanese Flash game thinks otherwise. I’m guessing it’s just lonely and wants some attention. When the game starts, a series of numbers flash on the screen for maybe half a second.

Vest Dressed to Kill: Resident Evil Vests on Ebay

Vest Dressed to Kill: Resident Evil Vests on Ebay
Of all the strange things that we have seen and heard and killed in the Resident Evil series, one strange thing stands out in my mind, in the same way that in RE games objects that can be picked up and interacted with tend to sparkle and have more vivid colors: why the hell is Raccoon City called “Raccoon City”?

Relive the Big and Chunky Days of Gadgets With Fauxsure Shirts
Remember when controllers had corners and not curves? When speakers were bigger than a house? When storage was limited but personal? and rectangular? Remember when synths… Nevermind. Synthesizers still look the same. Oh wait. Remember when synths had no USB connection?

Time to Slice Some Fools: Afro Samurai Hits Xbox 360 and PS3

Time to Slice Some Fools: Afro Samurai Hits Xbox 360 and PS3
Afro Samurai is weird. On one hand, it’s laden with cliches. Bad guy kills father, son becomes a brooding, killer line spewing killing machine bent on revenge. Severed heads and limbs and blood fly. On the other hand, the hero is a black samurai in a futuristic-feudal Japan whose nemesis is for all intents and purposes a charming undead cowboy.
