Feel like spending money? This PSN Flash Sale can help with that

Sony's kicked the weekend off a bit prematurely with one of its patented Flash sales. The "Flash" part doesn't means it'll be over quick though, because this one runs through Monday morning. Maybe it alludes to how suddenly i...

Snoop on the sidelines of a '70s revolution in Sunset

Wayne Brady will rip out your spine in MK X

Normally a celebrity event like this Mortal Kombat X launch tournament would be the sort of thing that makes my skin crawl. A slimy affair of glad-handing B-list celebrities on the downslope of their careers trying to appear...

Friday Night Fights - Na Na Na Na Na, Batfleck!

How is no one hosting MKX? I have to admit, I'm pretty shocked. I'd be all over it, if my damn power supply hadn't died. Sons, I am disappoint. Unless you didn't want to feel the sting of WB's DLC though. That I understand. F...

A baseball player playing games with a fat cat, so don't ask any questions

The San Francisco Giants' Matt Duffy isn't a proven baseball player. He had to fight through Spring Training for a spot on the club's 25-man roster. Still, I have shown in the past that I will do whatever's necessary to get c...

New StreetPass game Ultimate Angler gets dark for a brief moment

The two new 3DS StreetPass games came out yesterday. I downloaded them last night but didn't get a chance to play either until this morning. Wanting to start out with the lighthearted fishing game Ultimate Angler before takin...

Trine 3 will use Steam Early Access to nail its new 3D gameplay

There are certain games I wouldn't expect to appear on Steam Early Access. Trine is one of them. The puzzle-platformer series has done tremendously well for itself on PC and consoles, and from what we've seen of the third tit...

We got a first look at gameplay from the new Star Wars Battlefront photo
We got a first look at gameplay from the new Star Wars Battlefront
by Mike Cosimano

I have very fond memories of Star Wars Battlefront. Well into my adolescence, whole summer weekends were lost to split-screen tournaments; when you lost a game, you lost the controller. Familiar Star Wars iconography mixed with sprawling open-ended action in the Conquest mode turned the series into a neighborhood staple, keeping my PlayStation 2 in rotation long after I had obtained modern gaming consoles that were capable of hooking me up with the latest Call of Duty. It's a multiplayer experience unmatched by any shooter I've played since then -- a sentiment many of my fellow youngsters seem to agree with.

Combine these personal expectations with DICE's recent history and the stakes get even higher. The disastrous launch (and equally disastrous subsequent months) of Battlefield 4 dealt a crippling blow to the company's image, tempering what would have otherwise been a home run of an E3 reveal. We haven't seen too much of the game since last June, but that all ended at Star Wars Celebration yesterday with a demo for members of the press. Even though EA and DICE have yet to prove they can ship a game as good as Battlefield 4 (that isn't broken), I liked what I saw of Star Wars Battlefront and I liked what DICE told us. I'm thankfully back to cautious optimism.

The new retro: Japanese mystery Back In 1995 looks like a PS1 game

Ah, 1995. A good vintage. Earthquakes in Russia and Japan combined to kill nearly 10,000, the New York Times published Ted Kaczynski's manifesto, folks made Harlan Ellison's I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream into a videogam...

Botched Pokémon tattoo becomes newest beloved internet meme photo
Botched Pokémon tattoo becomes newest beloved internet meme
by Steven Hansen

If there's one thing my grandfather fought for in World War II, it was the right to monetize memes. Of course, he was in the Italian army, the side that rightfully lost the war, because all your grandfathers were fighting against meme monetization. Oh how far America has fallen.

Let's rewind. This thread hit reddit recently. "My friend was drunk and on Xanax when he decided to tattoo a black face Charmander with no experience or artistic ability. The flame saves it." It has Pokémon, failed tattoos, illicit substances, and is written in reddit's subdermal codified style. It was a sure thing.

Like Twitch Plays Pokémon or a million other forgotten memes festering in the world's collective "funny pics" computer folders, waiting to come back and end us like an Akira-esque abomination, reddit had fun with it.

And, hey, fun? Big fan. Love to have it.
