Japan is getting a pretty bitchin' Pokemon promo at KFC

Does anyone else use straws a lot? I have a giant pack of them in my house to use at all times. When I go out I don't tend to partake, but at home, there's nothing better than a giant glass of icewater with a straw. Anyway, these straw budd...

Ash's room in Unreal 4 is just as tacky as the real thing

This newest "X game in Y engine" video comes by way of Jarlan Perez, who recrafted Ash's room in Unreal Engine 4. It's pretty sleek overall, except for the fact that Ash leaves his balls all over the table. Can we assume that this is his ro...

Tauros is how you objectively kick ass at Pokemon

Everyone has their theory on how to be the best Pokémon trainer in the world. If you ask me, I'd say use that Charizard to obliterate anything that dares to challenge you. Work smarter, not harder. To coincide with the re-releas...
