Your Geek Chic Update: Clothing Edition

Two weeks ago, I posted a Geek Chic Update: Jewelry and Accessories Edition, where I showed you earrings made out of computer parts, YOUtility Belts, and a necklace featuring Han Solo in Carbonite. Who knew Han's frozen suffering would be so fashionable? » 7/23/12 8:30pm 7/23/12 8:30pm

Gender-Bending: 8 Impressive Girls-As-Guys Cosplays

Seasoned cosplayers, don't slaughter me-I'm very new to cosplaying with only a few ensembles good enough to post on the Internet. …Actually, who am I kidding. If these guys can post their costumes on the Internet, I should be fine. » 7/23/12 8:00pm 7/23/12 8:00pm

A Moment To Honor The Chrono Trigger Cats

Oh, little orange kitty with the triangle on your chest, thank you for following me around my house. Your companionship and high-pitched meows are ever brightening my days. » 7/16/12 9:00pm 7/16/12 9:00pm

5 Hilarious Video Game Industry Screw Ups

When an industry is made-up of almost equal parts society-changing brilliance and playboy man-child syndrome, it's bound to generate some exceptionally stupid ideas. » 7/16/12 8:30pm 7/16/12 8:30pm

What If Katamari Was Terrifying?

It's funny to think that the genre of a video game could change based on point of view. From the Prince's point-of-view in Katamari, everything is peachy, he's got a job to do, and everything in his path is nothing more than sweet, sweet points. » 7/16/12 8:00pm 7/16/12 8:00pm

Tower Defense Games As a Psychological Metaphor

I'm not particularly good at any video game genre, unless Tetris can be considered a genre all on its own. Naturally I have my shining moments, but these tend to occur at times when there is no one around to respond positively when I shout, "Did you see that?" except for, of course, my cat, who never pays attention… » 7/09/12 9:00pm 7/09/12 9:00pm

Your Geek Chic Update: Jewelry Edition

I can't, for the life of me, wear normal jewelry. Everything hanging, dangling, or strapped on me must have character. For example, I have an expensive Coach purse in my closet somewhere that I won't use until the $10 purse with the Pac-Man pins I'm currently using falls apart. I've even worn my Gears of War earrings… » 7/09/12 8:30pm 7/09/12 8:30pm

Are We Screwing Over Future Generations By Taking All Of The Best…

There is a serious epidemic going on that all of us are ignoring, and it's been bothering me for quite some time. I don't care about mercury in the water, toilet snakes, or swallowing my own tongue anymore. This is a far worse threat to society. » 7/09/12 8:00pm 7/09/12 8:00pm

Which Video Games Should Be Live-Action Musicals?

I would like to open up a discussion on this topic because, as I've seen from past comments, many of you have solid, creative ideas. Thusly, I would like to hear these ideas and, also, take a shot of tequila every time someone says, "Musicals suck." You just became my Monday night entertainment! » 7/02/12 8:30pm 7/02/12 8:30pm

Kicking Off Kotaku Presents: Lisa Foiles

Hey guys! Lisa Foiles here, kicking off my month-long season of content on Kotaku with a comedy sketch starring SMBC Theater's Jon Brence. In this true-to-life documentary, you'll witness many of my ideas getting hastily shot down by Jon before he realizes they're actually brilliant. Reminds me of the time I crept… » 7/02/12 8:00pm 7/02/12 8:00pm
