10 Controllers That Were Too Dumb for This World

Microsoft boasted that it had spent "hundreds of millions of dollars" developing the controller for the Xbox One, assumedly because "glossy black plastic" and "textured rubber thumbpads" are the most valuable materials on earth. But there's a reason why they were so cautious about their gamepads. The controller is only point of contact between you and your games, and if the connection isn't precise and comfortable, then the experience is irreparably ruined. I mean, "someone brought up politics at Thanksgiving" ruinedThe controller is key and that's why we're pointing out some of the dumbest examples from across gaming history.

Article There's Something Seriously Wrong With Anakin Skywalker's Shadow

By Andrew Bridgman / April 22, 2014

Theres Something Seriously Wrong With Anakin Skywalkers Shadow

  1. Some Guy

    Hey, kid! HEY!

  2. Anakin

    What? What is it?

  3. Some Guy

    There is something SERIOUSLY messed up with your shadow.

  4. Anakin

    What do you OH SHIT YOU'RE RIGHT

  5. Some Guy

    Like, I know we got two suns here on Tatooine and that messes with the shadows, but yours looks like a freakin' Elmers Glue container or something.

  6. Anakin

    I was gonna say - looks sorta like a lady in a mumu with a really bad bob haircut.

  7. Some Guy

    You don't think it might have some kind of...ominous warning, do you?

  8. Anakin

    You mean a....foreshadow?

  9. (the two laugh uproariously)
  10. Some Guy

    Haha, good one. But for real - even in a galaxy filled with weird aliens and a magic Force that binds all life together, that's some fucked up shit going on there with your shadow. You probably got space cancer or something.

Japan Is Making An Episode of Adventure Time

Anime director Masaaki Yuasa (The Tatami Galaxy, Kaiba) will be making an episode of Adventure Time for the upcoming sixth season - and they've already released a clip from the episode. Naturally, it's extremely weird - although Adventure Time is already a pretty weird show on its own before an outsider who primarily works in anime takes over.

Article 10 Differences Between the Game of Thrones Books vs. the TV Show

By Andrew Bridgman / April 22, 2014

 As anyone who has read the novels which the popular HBO show Game of Thrones is based on, there are quite a few differences in the television program from the source material. For one, the series is actually called "A Song of Ice and Fire", not "Game of Thrones" (which is actually the name of the first book). But there are way more - here are the ten most important ones:

 

1. In the books, it's Ser Ilyn Payne who spars with Jaime Lannister to help train him with his left hand, not Bronn.

2. In the books, Theon's sister is named "Asha," not "Uhhh Theon's Sister? The One He Fingerbanged. I can't remember her name"
