Hey Suikoden II, what sound does the horse make?
This is a Japanese sport called Bo-Taoshi. Remember that game you used to play in grade school, where one kid would stand on top of a mound of snow or dirt, and everyone else would try to push him off? This is basically that, except with a pole and a whole lot more flying jump kicks.
It's not news that Yao Ming is a gigantic human being, but it's still astonishing when he's juxtaposed with a regular-sized person. Take this AP photo from the All-Star Game, and know that it wasn't edited at all.

Remember Gangs of London? You're forgiven if you don't, because it's a 2006 PSP game from Sony's Team SOHO—The Getaway guys!—that very few people actually liked. But one British filmmaker was a fan and has since optioned rights to make a movie based on the game.
More weirdness is coming to Nintendo's DSiWare platform from the people who make Guilty Gear and Blazblue games. Following up on cutesy fighting game spin-off BlayzBloo: Super Melee Brawlers Battle Royale comes Pro Jumper Chimaki's Hot Spring Tour Guilty Gear Tangent!? And just what the hell is that?
