My uncle once joked about getting a tattoo of flies on his butt. Those tattoos of a company name seem almost as bad as that. I would probably never get a tattoo of anything, but if I had to get a video game tattoo . . . I would probably do a visual "remix" that portrays a video game character in a v...

Retro Sabotage

This site has some funny "updated" versions of retro games. Try Pong 2.0. The first Pac-man one is funny, too, but you have to play for a while before anything happens.

Most annoying enemies: Mind Flayers in NetHack. And in Oblivion, those plants that jump up in the air and shoot fireballs at you when you get close to them. The guy with the chainsaw in Resident Evil 4.

I also don't play the Wii - I have Galaxy, Paper Mario, and Zelda and have barely played any of them. :cry: The lack of community/social networking makes everything a little boring. Interesting point. If it had Xbox 360-style achievements and online interaction with other players, would you like it...

This "news" item is absolutely ridiculous and full of misinformation, including (as usual) commentary on the game by people who admit they have never even played it. From the news story: "leaving nothing to the imagination" "full digital nudity" "graphic sex" This is completely wrong. It leaves a lo...

Hey, welcome back guys. Another great show, as always. The interview was fantastic. In a world of video game podcast madness, Twitch Asylum is the pool of sanity ;). Thanks! It was really a lot easier and more fun to do a live, in-studio interview, compared to doing it over the phone or Skype. I ho...

I finally got a Wii. They are still rare around here but I happened to be in the right store at the right time, and I bought one. Zelda is awesome, and Metroid looks good. Other than that though, there are not a ton of games I want to own right now but many possible rentals.

Rhyme Torrents: The Nerdcore Hip-hop Compilations

Want some free music to geek out to? Rhyme Torrents has free downloads of a variety of nerdcore rap. My favorite songs so far are: Mountain Kind (song 0 on volume 2), Emulation Station - about playing emulated games (song 22 on volume 1), Miss Information (song 21 on volume 1), and Kill Dash 9 (song...

Magic Man - No chewnicorn yet, but I did tame my first sour pinata the other day. I need to play Viva Pinata a lot more because I really want to get more exotic pinatas.

It's true, I'm not very good at Gears of War. In fact, I'm not very good at shooters in general. Still, it was fun to play co-op with Magic Man.
