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.

Harmonix says 'don't throw away your old Guitar Hero controllers'

Where are all your old Guitar Hero and/or Rock Band guitars now, eh? Stuffed under the couch? Collecting dusting the basement?  If you haven't thrown them away -- and I really, really hope you haven't thrown them away --...

The new iOS update killed Spiderweb Software's iPad Games for good

Spiderweb Software’s not having a good time as of late. No one really pays much attention to them most of the time, but the fact they still pump out very niche retro-style CRPGs after 20 years is a really nice thin...

Nintendo's NPD sales report has lots of numbers

And let's keep it that way. None of that "heck" monkey business. Or Donkey Kong Frappuccinos.

A better look at our beloved Conker in Project Spark

That last trailer for Conker's arrival in Project Spark didn't go over so well. There was no getting around the disappointment of seeing a long abandoned (but never forgotten!) character return not in his own adventure, but ...

March NPD: PS4 still the one true king; Battlefield tops software charts

It's that time of the month again. The time console warriors are able to pull out actual facts to back up their extreme fanboyism in the most heated of forum discussions. Taking the top spot again for hardware was the PlaySta...
