Review: Sumo Emperor photo
Review: Sumo Emperor
by Chris Carter

Furniture can get pretty expensive. Sometimes, you'll go into a store ready to buy a replacement chair, and before you know it, you and your wife are picking out a five-piece sofa set. Comfort, price, and aesthetics all come into play, and somewhere along the middle of all three options is the bean bag chair.

Of course, like all furniture, bean bags have premium options -- specifically, the Sumo brand, which we've covered in the past. As someone who plays an awful lot of games, and was curious as to whether or not they're worth the price, I decided to take the Sumo Emperor for a spin.

Destructoid is more than meets the eye in this crossover

You know what's cool? Transformers. You know what's not cool? That the Autobot symbol looks a little, well, emo. Have you really looked at it before? The robot mascot is sporting a frown face and looks like it's on the verge ...

If you found pizza on the ground, would you eat it?

Well, would you? That's what our newest shirt in the Destructoid store is asking, and if you've ever played a beat'em up before then you know the answer is giant yes! The new design was created by Josh Grilli, and features a tasty 8-bit pizza. As always, each shirt goes for $19.95, and you'll receive free shipping worldwide when you spend over $60 on anything in our store!

OH BABY! Animal Crossing DLC coming to Style Savvy

Nobody cares about this but me. I am a pretty, pretty princess. But yes, Nintendo's highly fashionable Style Savvy: Trendsetters, the boutique management sim released last year, will be receiving Animal Crossing-themed DLC. The "Gracie Grace" brand will be coming in the near future. So yeah. I'm beautiful.

This Super Mario kimono is high-class fashion

In the fashion world, "retro" is in. I should know because I am a fashionista because I've been playing a lot of Style Savvy: Trendsetters on the 3DS, so I'm up on my sh*t. You couldn't be a more fashionable guy than me. So w...

These custom gamer skirts make me mad I'm not a woman
