Plasmid Shot Glasses For All Your Shot Taking Needs

If you’re anything like me, you like massive amounts of alcohol. You also enjoy having ridiculous glasses out of which you will drink your alcohol. I personally have about twenty princess-themed shot glasses. But if you’re not the kind who would want princess-themed shot glasses, Irrational Games may have the thing for you. Plasmid shot more »

OUYA gets Unreal Engine 4 and $10 million in funding

Do you remember the crowd-funded OUYA system? Neither do I. Good thing somebody over at Unreal did, otherwise one of the most prominent and sought after gaming engines of today wouldn’t have made its way to the little box.

Code Name STEAM Preview: Running Out of Steam

Nintendo released a demo for Code Name STEAM, and I jumped right on it as soon as I could. To me, there is no word more magical than “free.” I’ll play almost anything for free. Anyway, I spent some time with the demo, and now I’d like to share my thoughts with you all, because more »

Testing out Starbound Upbeat Giraffe

The Starbound Upbeat Giraffe update is here, as I mentioned yesterday. It’s a huge development, since it entirely changes aspects about the game.

Super Mario RPG’s Mallow and Geno should be in Super Smash Bros.

For those of you who have no soul and thus never played it, Super Mario RPG was a fantastic SNES era console RPG from Nintendo and SquareEnix (then Squaresoft). It was the last Mario game on the SNES, and, in my opinion, in the running for the best Mario game ever. It contained the Princess more »
