Geek Essentials


ThinkGeek is a magical place full of geeky wonder. They have all sorts of things any nerd would want. From shirts, computer stuff, toys and more. They even have videogames such as this GP2X Wiz MAME/Amiga/Console Emulator and...


Three designs to check out in this edition of Geek Chic! Teextile has a Black Friday sale going on for every shirt this week. All shirts are $12 and they have a videogame design as part of this week's deals. "Thousand Needles...


Commence opening your wallet. The fifth episode of Robert Ashley's A Life Well Wasted is nearly upon us. For those unfamiliar, it's described as an Internet radio show, which is about right. It's certainly no cookie cutter po...


PopCap has a couple of new Plants Vs Zombie shirt designs up on their store. The one you see above and one that says "Your Grass is Mine!" While the second one is extremely facepalm worthy, the Moustache one is just...


Teextile has fast become my favorite shirt supplier store on the Internets. Each week, five new designs go up and you only have that same week to get the shirt you want. Teextile has a videogame related shirt on sale this wee...


Oh yes, it's time for another edition of Geek Chic where we look at gaming related fashion. This Monster Hunter jacket is ridiculously hot. With that said though, I’ll never be caught wearing this thing. It reminds me o...


The other week, over at Japanator.com, we took a look at what life was like with some of the editors. You got to see our porn, TVs, and cats. Well, I figured that we might as well take a look at some more members of the Moder...


Now here is a product that I would probably blow my money on without a moment's hesitation: a business card holder with retro flavor, representing everything from Mario and Zelda to Ice Climber and even classic Famicom. Cool,...


So, this weekend marks the opening of the Sex and the City movie. For those of you living under a rock, the popular TV series about four liberated ladies drinking and partying their way around New York was bound to be made in...


 It has to be said that Roman Bellic is one of the many joys of Grand Theft Auto IV. His determined optimism and love of beeg American teetees know no bounds, and I find him one of the most likable characters in the game...


How many times have you found yourself cutting meat (or... celery, for the vegetarians out there) on a plain white cutting board while thinking that something was missing from your life? Me? All the time. And that missing thi...


Here's some chicken soup for the geek in you: the New York Times has mapped out a matrix of all of the things that may have directly benefited for the geekery that was Dungeons and Dragons. It may be a stretch to attribute t...


Man, I suck at Tetris. It's now to the point where I lose every time, without fail. These days, all I can do is struggle for a few minutes before defeat, and then tell the victor that "at least I've seen a real vagina.&...


It's almost time to quit yer bellyachin', as Sony has finally announced that PS3 owners will soon be able to get into their console's operating system without having to leave the comfort of their game's universe. An in-game X...


I'm not a WoW player by any means, but this is still pretty cool news. A company is offering to make actual figures based on people's World of Warcraft characters that they can then buy. Since some players invest vast portion...


I've got more great goodies to put under your favorite gamer's tree this holiday season. From pretty ornaments to put on the tree to amazing presents to put under the tree, I have a bunch of sweet ideas.Got a addicted WoW gam...


Everyone have probably already started their Christmas shopping, if they haven't, well then you better snap to it before the only gifts left in the stores are fruit cakes and old copies of Spice World for the Playstation. [Ed...


Those of you who are fans of the Legend of Zelda games have probably already sold the necessary pints of blood or stolen the necessary dollars/pounds/Euros from your mother/father/significant other's wallet/purse/marsupian...


The London Movie Comic Media Expo is a haven for anime geeks and furries who flock by the hundreds in their Sailor Moon underpants. It's also said to be a little bit rubbish, but this year I have a special reason for wanting ...


The PlayStation 3 firmware revision that Sony's Eric Lempel mentioned a few days ago in Sony's official blog is finally live and available for download. The update, version 1.82, enables playback of AVC High Pro...


The first part in Leigh's "Building a better RPG" mini-series got me to thinking about storytelling in RPGs. I agreed with some of the points in her article, especially the fact that nowadays, the stories are so...


Surely we all make faces when we game, but rarely is that ultimate expression captured on video. Well, maybe they are, but are any as special as this one, "The Hannibal"? What would you name your gamer face?[Thanks, Epileptic Gaming] 


As far as Dave Karraker, the man behind the media curtain at Sony is concerned, all the bad publicity that Sony has faced is all just one big misunderstanding on our part. Luckily for you, he's ready to fill those educati...


While pro gaming is certainly huge in the likes of Asia and across Europe, it really hasn't caught on quite yet in the States. We have our own e-sports channel on DIRECTV, but who in the hell has DIRECTV? The latest profe...


After a slight hold up due to the evils of Adobe Premiere (a pain I know all too well), the first episode of the new season of Pure Pwnage is online and ready for viewing. The internet premiere was scheduled for yesterday (t...


A deaf gamer has brought up what may well be an very important and overlooked point. In a letter he sent to the ESA, and now reprinted by Kotaku, he points out that a great deal of the modern gameplay experience is lost by de...


Does this little StarFox nostalgia resonate with anyone? Were there certain games you were more selfish with than others?


Our pals over at Epileptic Gaming have got quite the week planned for gamers who like a show that "gets it." I'll be kicking off the stellar week with them today as I drop by to do my special guest duties. But ...


Pro gaming is the future of sports. We're starting to see little hints at it now, but believe me, this genre will be huge -- just ask Asia and Europe. The latest step in this growing field is the announcement today by the...


Curious about what Grand Theft Auto IV will actually offer? Will you be able to fly? Will you be able to shoop da whoop? These are burning questions, and I'm sure you all dying to know the answers. Via some Game Informer ...


If you're knee-deep in Lord of the Rings nerdom, then tonight is your night, my young hobbit. Across the country at 11 p.m., there will be various Lord of the Rings Online events to celebrate its final release at your ...


Those crafty fellas at The Llama's Adventures got themselves ahold of a brand new Xbox 360 Elite, a whole ten days before its official street date. Clearly smug and excited at getting such a potentially importan...


I realised a few months ago that the Christmas of this year marks my 15-year gaming anniversary. I know for a fact that that’s not quite true, as the number of years I’ve actually been playing tails much further b...


A few minutes ago, Matt, one of the creators of the above pilot, sent us an email with the Youtube link and a bag of cash and disembodied vaginas. As much as we appreciated the fact that he has done his homework (little kno...


Hate to say this, but Bungie, we already knew what the X button did in Halo 3. But, in case you were one of the many non-interested Halo parties not paying attention, the Halo folks have now clearly defined it for everyone. ...


As most of you I'm sure know by now, last night's Epileptic Gaming was pretty much off the hook. But besides our drunken tirades, one of the big things we talked about was our top 10 lists that we each created that h...


If you're like me, then at one point in your life you got suckered into a free subscription of Game Informer by way of GameStop or EB -- whichever does that stupid thing. Anyway, usually I just use the mediocre mag to hel...


Richard Stallman is a large man. A large man with a beard that could easily hide a family of poor, migrant workers from La Migra for days on end. Am I claiming that Mr. Stallman is guilty of hiding illegal immigrants in his b...


Fact: I love PC RTS games.Fact: I love Company of Heroes and what it tried to do with changing the way RTS games are handled.Fact: THQ loves me so much they decided to keep on keepin' on with the series and I couldn't...


There will come a day, maybe 10 years from now, where you'll be sitting around a fire and playing Trivial Pursuit with your yuppy neighbors. And on that day, there will be a question in which because you love this site, y...
