This Ouya ad is so bad that I can't believe it's real


6:00 AM on 08.21.2013



[Update: the official video has been taken down, presumably to avoid embarrassment, so a mirror is now posted in its stead. The Ouya construct is learning -- it will soon be capable of rational thought and feelings. Be afraid.]

As part of their "free the games" campaign, it seems as if Ouya is out to deliver a message -- $60 games are not okay. But the delivery of said message in a recent commercial (featured above) is so bizarre that it must be seen to be believed.

The only logical explanation I can come up with as to how this was allowed past the planning stages is that the Ouya has become sentient. Not content with the fact that 73% of its owners have not purchased one game, it's out for blood. As an early Ouya backer when it sounded like a good idea, I am safe.

But for those less fortunate, I salute you.

What's Up: ME4's Mako, Deadpool test footage, Gal Gadot as Xena

Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.more

How to correctly play Crypt of the NecroDancer

I've been playing Crypt of the NecroDancer, and now I fancy myself a pretty amazing player. The game hits Steam's Early Access program in just two days, and so I figured I'd impart my wisdom unto any new players who may be out there by making a hawt tipz video.more
