Adventure Time-Themed Magic Deck? Yes Please!

These mash-ups are getting better and better. Redditor The_Stoney_Badger’s friend created his own Adventure Time deck for Magic: The Gathering and we would be lying if we said we didn’t want one for ourselves.

Scraps – Vehicle combat with buildable vehicles

A long time ago, in the halcyon past of the late 90’s, there was vehicle combat. Twisted Metal. Interstate ’76. One of the things I really liked about Interstate ’76 was the extensive customisation you could do to your car’s loadout. Oh yeah, and remember LEGO Racers? You could build your whole car from the chassis […]

Role-Playing Games, Then And Now

Computer role-playing games have been among the earliest of genres to establish themselves in the games industry, but sadly also one of the most vulnerable and, perhaps, the genre that has been contorted the most over the years. Role-playing saw a real heyday during the 80s, when games like “The Bard’s Tale,” “Phantasie,” “Ultima,” “Wasteland” […]

Hardest Games of the Early 90’s

Forget Call of Duty on Veteran Mode, the 90’s had some of what had to be the hardest games to date! Sure, they didn’t sport high definition 3D graphics, brilliant character modeling and gorgeous texturing, but by Jove they were controller breaking difficult! From your fast paced platforming games, to your nerve racking spaceship games, […]

Still Addicted to Angry Birds?

Everywhere I go these days, I see something related to Angry Birds. To be honest, I think that the hype has outlived its use a long time ago. However, entrepreneurs are still jumping on the Angry Birds bandwagon. I have seen bags, hats, plushies, pillows, shirts, key rings, and all sorts of other merchandise with […]

5 Minutes to Kill Yourself: Airport Edition

Upon reflection, 5 Minutes to Kill Yourself: Airport Edition is pretty close to the realities of airport check in sequences. Long lines, bad food, and umm… machine gun nests are some of the staples of your typical airport impediments that want to get you killed. Surprisingly, there are absolutely no TSA pat-down references. For the […]
