    ‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ Cinematic Trailer (Video)

    It’s my opinion that every video game franchise should do at least one installment set in ancient Egypt. Call of Duty, Resident Evil, Pac-Man, Super Mario, all of these games would be significantly improved with the addition of ancient Egyptian architecture, weaponry, and perhaps a mummy or two. I’ve long been considered a crackpot for […]

    Watch Christian Hackenberg Get Destroyed & He Didn’t Even See It Coming (VIDEO)

    Let’s all have a moment of silence. The New York Jets have an embarrassing lineup of quarterbacks this season. The first on that list is Christian Hackenberg, but he almost got knocked off the depth chart on Saturday. In the first quarter of today’s game, the Detroit Lions’ Cornelius Washington came unblocked on Hackenberg’s right side and absolutely […]

    Shu Takada: Check out the World Yo-Yo Champion (Video)

    Hey, it’s late Friday afternoon, which means it’s time for every working person to go as close to autopilot as they can without creating a catastrophe. That includes me, which is why I’m directing your attention to one Shu Takada, who recently took home the gold Duncan in the 2017 World Yo-Yo Championship. Shu Takada […]

    ‘Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite’ Full Story Trailer (Video)

    A few months back we saw the first teaser for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and I vaguely recall some confusion regarding the actual storyline of the game, which pits characters from the Marvel and Capcom fictional universes/intellectual property holdings against each other and a shared common threat: Ultron Sigma. Now we have a Marvel vs. […]

    OJO: A Dedicated Projector for the Nintendo Switch

    Playing video games projected on a giant screen – or, better yet, a wall – is one of the great underrated pleasures of modern life. So it’s good news that the “world’s first projector for Nintendo Switch,” as it’s billed, is on the way. It’s OJO, soon to be the subject of a crowdfunding campaign […]

    What time is it right now? If you have a correctly tuned watch, you know. What time is it in New York? Los Angeles? London? Tokyo? Wellington? If you have a fancy-enough watch with world clock features, you know. What time is it in the Mushroom Kingdom? No matter how nice your watch is, you […]

    The Ocho: ESPNU Changes Formats for 8/8

    One of the very best things about the 2004 film Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story is its depiction of ESPN8 “The Ocho,” a clearinghouse for every obscure athletic competition known to man. Unfortunately for lovers of professional arm-wrestling and bowling trick-shot contests, ESPN8 isn’t a real channel – until today, when ESPNU is switching up […]
