Protect your Amiibo collection using these ridiculous Kickstarter cases

Amiibos have become quite a thing for Nintendo. The figure line is still somewhat lacking in functionality, but that’s unavoidable given its infancy. Still, new releases are constantly adding to the repertoire of legitimate applications for Amiibos. Not that they need to, as collectors will drool over the things regardless. And with good reason; sanctioned more »

Destiny weapons look great in LEGO

LEGO master ZaziNombies has taken his block-building talents to countless games, but few of his creations are as striking as his recent take on Destiny‘s notorious Gjallarhorn rocket launcher. The build clocks in at 46 inches in length and with a weight of over 15 pounds, fleshed out by a whopping 3,500 bricks. For comparison, ZN’s Ice more »

Humble Bundle loves you!

Humble Bundle’s weekly bundle this week is appropriately, and lovingly themed. The Humble Weekly Bundle for Lovers (of games) shows that I know far too much about romance novel games. All of them are familiar to me, and I own two of them already. But for those of you that might not have been so more »

Pokemon Pokeball Bath Bomb makes you feel like a kid again

Remember when you were little and there were all those bathtime novelties designed to make you want to get all clean? There were the capsules containing sponges that would grow to full size when immersed, soaps where you could see some kind of surprise lurking inside, and of course the bath bombs that made the more »

Confession: I used an iPhone 5 to cheat in Guacamelee

Trophies aren’t typically my thing. Most of my formative years were spent obsessing about multiplayer titles like Counter-Strike and TFC. And since trophy systems usually revolve around the single-player campaign, I never developed a taste. Plus, making my friends angry was always more important. In my old age, though, I’m rediscovering single-player campaigns. Most people more »

Microsoft’s HoloLens brings virtual reality to life

There are few things in life that get me as pumped up as the prospect of virtual reality. Needless to say, I had a little freak out watching clips of Microsoft’s HoloLens during today’s Windows 10 briefing. Unlike the Oculus Rift, or Project Morpheus, the HoloLens is a completely separate system. It is its own computer, more »

Action figures bring life after death

I know this is a little on the weird side everyone, but that’s exactly why I couldn’t keep it to myself. Look to the right, and you’ll see a Superman action figure with what appears to be a custom head, made to look like a real person. Well, there’s something you don’t know. That “action more »

I have Xbox One envy

This doesn’t come as a surprise I’m sure for anyone who’s a fan of gaming on newer consoles. I have Xbox One envy. I’m sure you’re wondering why I say it like it should be news. You’d wonder even more after hearing that my Xbox 360 is one of the (worst decision in my life). more »

This year, carve a styrofoam gaming pumpkin

Halloween is a mess. I mean that literally, as anyone who has ever carved a pumpkin knows the affair is quite an ordeal. So this year, make your gaming pumpkin a styrofoam one. Yes, styrofoam pumpkins are a thing and can be carved. I first saw the styrofoam pumpkins at Walmart earlier this month, but more »
