My favorite flavor of ramen? Metroid Lime!

2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the Metroid series, but Nintendo hasn't done much to be festive for the occasion. We've gotten a fan remake and a strange spin-off, so Metroid fans haven't been completely forgotten (even if the latter wil...

These Pokemon hamburgers are to 'dye' for

Australian burger pop-up Down-n-Out (In-n-Out down under) is selling a two-week run of Pokemon-inspired hamburgers. Squirtle got the shaft as the crew went with two starters, Bulbasaur and Charmander, as well as the ubiquitous Pikachu. The ...

Those Mario flavors at Yogurtland are delizzle, fo shizzle

I'm always hesitant when it comes to my favorite video game characters ending up in food and drinks. In my younger days, I threw caution to the wind and threw just about anything and everything directly into my mouth. Sadly, those years of ...

A Kirby Cafe is coming to Japan next month

Cafes that take after video game IPs aren't anything new in Japan, and next month, a Kirby establishment will open for business for a limited time. Not much info is known yet, but you can probably bet that with such a strong empha...

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...

Carl's Duty: eat an absurd burger and win a gross gun skin

The United States of America, right? Where our burgers are big and our guns are bigger. And our heart failures are spectacular. Or something. Let's start over. Carl's Jr. (also known as Hardee's) is teaming up with Activision in a very "U-S...

Weird Pokemon toys are returning to McDonalds

Say what you will about McDonalds, but so many Happy Meal toys were my jam growing up -- especially the Pokemon line. Japan is getting a new set starting next week, complete with a Pikachu ring toss, a Fennekin...wand...thing, and a Ch...

KFC takes us through the life of Colonel Sanders in a game

Colonel Sanders lived an interesting life. In an attempt to bring him back into the public eye, fast food chain KFC wants to tell the story of his life, though it seems like it might be embellished a bit in the free minigame collection Colo...

The Kinect's best game may come to PC, compliments of Swery

We'd seen the tweets hinting at it before, but over this past weekend at PAX East, Dark Dreams Don't Die on PC became a reality, at least for a few days. Swery, creator of Deadly Premonition and Dark Dreams Don't Die (D4) came equippe...

GDC 15 DLC #4: Pita wraps, damn good fries and ragtime

We didn't have usual cameraman Kenny Redublo during our fourth lunch of GDC (see us dining with Dale here) and things went a bit awry. Our substitute cameraman Mike Cosimano had some fun with it, though, with some silent movie magic. You m...

GDC 15 DLC #3: Japanese katsu curry with Dale

Look on ye hungry and despair. Familiar face Dale North joined us for the third Daily Lunch Chronicles (watch the last one here). Back behind the camera, Kenny managed to empty his plate before both of us while shooting, but he didn't have...

GDC 15 DLC #2: Oily hamburgers and Cranberries

The second lunch of GDC was much messier than the first, which you can watch here. Today (well, two days ago, actually) we went with an American staple, the "Hammed Burger," so named for the first woman who ever went totally ham on a burge...

GDC 15 DLC #1: Chicken shawarma wrap

We're at the Game Developers Conference all week. GDC is pretty cool, but also a convention, which means gross convention center lunches. We want to have nice lunches all week. Not too nice. Downtown food is overpriced, even for San Franci...

You can now eat Xbox One burgers in Hong Kong

Everyone has their morning rituals. Some people need their coffee. Others jog. I peruse Japanese website Gigazine hoping to see pictures of bizarre and wonderful foods. It's rarely videogame related, so I haven't shared this rite until now,...

Japan is getting those Mario Kart 8 McDonalds toys too

I love Japanese commercials. They're produced with such unbridled enthuisasm that it's hard to not get excited for what they're selling -- even if it's McDonalds. Nintendo has partnered up once again with the fast food chain to release its...
