It's a My Little Rhythm PaRappa Pony Heaven freak out


1:00 AM on 10.16.2012



Rhythm Heaven Fever is my favorite game of 2012. I love Fez and Retro City Rampage and Fatal Frame 2 and many, many other games that were released this year, but none of them have made a permanent change to my daily life the way that Rhythm Heaven Fever has. That's saying a lot, especially when you consider the fact that I'm actually in Retro City Rampage

From all reports, the game didn't sell all that well in the US or in Europe, which is a shame, especially seeing as the Wii U and 3DS are region locked, giving fans of the series in the West even more reason to fear for their chances of playing future games in the series. It's strange, because remixes/remakes of the game are still pretty popular on YouTube. The video above is past 200,000 views, a Team Fortress 2 remix from the game is at half a million views, and this Terry Crews remix is slowly creeping in on a million. Why didn't those views translate into sales?

I can't say for sure, but I am certain that the next Rhythm Heaven title will sell a lot better in U.S. if it features some My Little Pony vs. Old Spice vs. Valve crossover heat.

I badly want to pop this wall of Dragon Quest slimes

There's a bubble-wrap wall of slimes in this wild world of ours. Can you guess where? Japan. Of course it's in Japan! The poppable piece of marketing is at the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line Shinjuku Station Metro Promenade. Lot...more

These old Pokémon ads and toys bring me back

I went down an Internet wormhole last night when I really, truly should've just gone to bed. It began with this Imgur album of old Pokémon ads, but as someone who grew up alongside Pokémania, it couldn't end the...more
