'Rockman: The Schemed for Hanayashiki!?'

Every so often Capcom decides that it's time to parade Mega Man around, reminding us that they used to pump out a ton of good games for him while they sit back and collect royalties. The next really cool not-Mega Man game eve... read

These Sonic-themed chili dogs and onion rings look pretty tasty


I think I'd just go buy them instead of make them

Slow news day?
This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. So, here's what we did instead.  read feature
