Choosing a baby name can be a grueling process. You don’t want to pick a name that everybody else’s kid has, but you don’t want to have one of those creepy, celebrity baby names, like Nectarine. We’re going to shake things like a baby for this week’s round of Nerd Wars! We mean, shake things up… yeah, that’s it. We’re going to choose a selection of fantastic baby names, inspired by our favorite video game characters and we need your help choosing the best ones. You can vote for your favorites (up to three) or come up with your own. (If you choose your own, make sure to enter the name into the comment section below.)
Hey, United States of America, we need to talk. First off, I’m not a fan of talking politics on this site. There are plenty of sites that do that kind of thing. Unfortunately, politics has come knocking. On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza slaughtered 26 people, 20 of them children, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. Anger and sadness are perfectly natural emotions to be feeling, a burning desire to radically reorganize society where no one will ever be murdered again, is not. Continue Reading
Yes, believe it or not the 2012 is over and this is the last Friday it will ever see. Monday night is New Years Eve and you know what that means… drinking! As an advanced drinker (read: alcoholic) every New Years I like to find a new cocktail to mix up for First Night. This year it’s going to be the Master Chief Mojito: Continue Reading
There are only a few short days until the year 2012 comes to an end. There have been some phenomenal releases in gaming, not just from the big developers, but the indie guys as well. This week’s round of Nerd Wars! is going to be a tough one to call. We’ve gone through and selected some of the best reviewed games of the year and we need your help deciding which of them was the best game of 2012.
Let’s face it, to a certain degree we’re all bro’s or bro-ette’s. Unfortunately there are many negative connotations associated with being a “bro.” Many of which are completely justified. Seriously, just take a look at this guy. Don’t you just wanna punch him in the throat? Tribal tattoos!? Seriously!? Sorry…. got a little worked up there. To be fair though, we all love Mountain Dew and Dave Matthews Band.
That’s right folks, the folks from 343 Industries posted a bunch of new screenshots from the game and have confirmed that the flood will make and appearance. Unfortunately these disfigured icons won’t be appearing in the campaign. The above screenshot is from a multiplayer mode entitled “Flood,” in which two infected players try to spread the disease to all other players. I mean look at those things, that’s a face even a mother couldn’t love. Continue Reading
As many of you may know, the city of Tokyo has been overrun by a game show. Not as exciting as Godzilla, but we’re doing a special Friday Fun for it. First up, Sony Smash Bros…. er I mean Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale:
I do have to say, I’m looking forward to the Helghast wrecking up Loco Roco and Parappa the Rapper. Nintendo still has them beat though, check out this sweet trailer for Tekken: Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition:
Yes, you just saw Nintendo cosplay in a Tekken game. But what joy is there for 360 owners? Nothing, but this Halo 4 trailer out featuring weapons! Continue Reading
At the tone, the time will be Friday Fun. Yes, here we go again. First up, are you a fan of Minecraft and anime? Ever wish they could go together? Some enterprising, or sad, person in Japan has combined the two:
Next, an ongoing debate among the scholars of our time is, of course, “Can a game based on a movie be good?”. I have to say freddiew.com might just have answered a resounding, answer. Behold, the sidescolling “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”:
Finally, I’d like to slow things down, for all the lovers out there. Something for the heart, from the heart and the guys over at The Warp Zone:
We’re all here to find love and have a happy Friday.
