In 2017 most video game consoles look pretty similar: black boxes of varying size aimed at being as discrete as possible. The brands who manufacture and distribute them also have more clout and prestige of their own. So it’s weird to think that in the late 90s Nintendo thought it was important to use Tommy Hilfiger to…
San Diego Comic-Con 2016's begins with this evening’s preview night, when many of the most desirable collectible exclusives will disappear. Then there are there are the exclusives that’ll likely make it through to Sunday, like 24 karat gold Iron Man and Guan Yu Stan Lee.
Inside the NES was a specially-designed chip, and games licensed through Nintendo contained the appropriate key to keep hack publishers from making low-quality games for the console. Wisdom Tree was one of the first companies to circumvent this security measure, and it used its unprecedented edge for one purpose: to…
Well, this is a first.
Twitter is kinda terrible sometimes. It enables people of all types and backgrounds to come together and get really, really angry at each other, and somehow many of us lose hours to the damn thing every day. These talking mountains, though? They brighten the place right up.
Pancake art is a thing. It's just the world we live in now. That said I'm impressed anyone can coax recognisable images of The Walking Dead cast out of eggs, flour and milk.
Public transportation solves many problems in urban environments. Subways make commuting to work a whole lot more convenient, but what happens when you introduce a group of zombies onto mass transit? Well, as a group of 30 zombies found out in Wuhan, China, a little bit of panic and a little bit of rubbernecking.
Nintendo's cultivated an image as the most squeaky clean creator on game company block, but it wasn't always that way. And by that I mean the '90s were weird, you guys.
For a game that is about dating birds, Hatoful Boyfriend is surprisingly normal. And that is its greatest strength.
I'm not sure what's going on. This is probably the third romance related stunt to happen in China in recent weeks. What makes this one special though, is that it involves a "Cactuar" in the middle of Beijing.
Last week an incident broke out in the Beijing subway system. A young woman got into an altercation with her apparent boyfriend over a mobile phone game, it seems. The end result: she dragged the man onto a subway train. But was this just a PR stunt?
When some male animals attract mates, they often present themselves in a way that shows off their virility. This form of mating ritual is often called peacocking, and it appears that in China's military speed dating circles, it's done through push-ups.
Not too long ago, I asked you to help me dive into the world of unconventional, strange, and often horrible computer pointing devices. Some of them have very specialized purposes. Some of them are just dumb. Here are 13 of the weirdest.
Last week, a strange sight appeared in Beijing's subway. A young lady got on Beijing Subway's line 8. She was wearing a giant moon mask.
Imaginary pets are cool. I'm not knocking them down. Kids with pet rocks, you keep on trucking. What I'm here to say today is that the latest weird photos coming out China are not a trend. Lonely Chinese youths aren't walking cabbage pets.
Every year, less than 50 foreign movies are allowed to be shown in theaters in China. Transcendence happens to be one movie that's allowed in China this year, but looking at its marketing materials, one might think that it's Johnny Depp shilling something other than a movie.
Architecture is art. Some buildings are just cool to look at. Others are mesmerising and hypnotic, like one compound in East China's Jiangsu province, which has been dubbed by Chinese netizens as the "magical Rubik's compound".
I seriously hope you're not eating breakfast while reading this post. In fact, if you are, I apologize.
Most times, when you go to a game store, it’s likely to the blandest of interactions. Jingle that doorbell, chat up the people working there, trade some stuff in and make a purchase. But, all in all, you might not know the people in the store really well. After watching this indie film, you might decide that that’s a…
