Angry Birds Stella is more than a cute overload

Back in February 2014, I mentioned that my cynical and hardened heart wouldn’t be able to resist Angry Birds Stella. Though all we had back then was concept art, I could already see that those adorable birds would be too overwhelming. Regular Angry Birds and pigs are cute in their own way, but the four more »

There are Flappy Bird stuffed toys and t-shirts

Ugh. That’s actually what I said when I saw the Flappy Bird products in F.Y.E. I just let out a huge groan. Then, there was a spectacular eyeroll when I realized that these products were full priced and not on sale. This is the kind of world we live in now. I’m still stunned. I more »

I keep playing Minecraft instead of working

Now that I’m a highly paid writer for a high quality gaming site, I have certain expectations placed upon me. No longer can I simply run free amongst the mists of my magical glade, allowing the spray of water from the nearby river to coat my voluptuous body with a fine sheen. No longer can more »
