Pwn Up: Ill Never Forget You, Fisherman Ralph
I remember when Pokemon Gold and Silver came out, I played it to death. One part I remember is that trainers would call you up just to say hi or brag about their Pokemon. One such trainer called me once or twice and I decided he was my friend. His name was Fisherman Ralph. I would call him every time I turned my Gameboy on just to say hi and every time before I saved to say goodbye. I still think about him sometimes I wonder how hes doing. -Kyle

Yesterday I spent 6 hours getting all of the music from Fallout 3 and New Vegas. Now I know that isn't all that amazing, but you see the normal soundtracks took not even an hour each to find and download. It was finding the complete Adventures of Herbert Daring Dashwood that took the other 4 hours. I was so happy that I cried a little and even went as far as to clear the entirety of my mp3 player so it only has these songs.-Smiley

One time, I was walking along and saw someone dressed mainly in blue. I immediately looked to the bottom right of my vision to see which color I was before remembering that I was not playing Team Fortress 2.-Daniel

Article Pwn Up: Winter is Here

Pwn Up: Winter is Here

"I'm not wearing hockey pads- oh wait maybe I am. Nevermind"

 

Last February my Scout group went to the Northern Tier High Adventure Base in Minnesota to go dog-sledding. We were six miles from Canada, and it was COLD. Being from Louisiana, many of us had never seen snow before. The thing that made that trip for me was the last day we were there when I got to finally set my plan in motion. That morning I let everyone else go ahead of me before and then grabbed the outfit I had carried with me the whole trip. I had become THE BATMAN. I showed up to breakfast doing my best gravelly Christian Bale voice, saying things like "Where is breakfast? WHERE IS IT?!" or "The staff guide... Can he be trusted?" I kept this up throughout the rest of the day until it was time to leave. A lot of my friends say the best part was when we went out onto the frozen lake and my cape started billowing in the wind. I had a blast, and was making Batman references the whole time. So no-one will ever be able to beat my story from Mardi Gras 2013, because nobody else went dog-sledding in a Batman suit.

Article Other X-Men Arcs Fox Can Adapt To Film

By Andrew Bridgman / March 24, 2014

 

It seems like nothing short of a miracle that X-Men: Days of Future Past is being released - it's one of the most beloved arcs in X-Men history, but one that many thought would never make it to the big screen. It's a complicated story that involves parallel timelines, time travel, and the deaths of many popular X-Men characters. Also, it's protagonist is Kitty Pryde, who (thus far in the series) had received very little screentime. To make the property more viable for the mass audiences, Bryan Singer & Co. have changed the protagonist of the story to popular X-Men character Wolverine.

Now that this arc is being turned into a film, what other popular X-Men arcs could be next? Here are 4 we think could work out great.

 

The Dark Phoenix Saga

  xmen

I know, I know - they already adapted the Dark Phoenix saga for the big screen with X-Men 3: The Last Stand. However, I think we can all agree that that movie was a terrible abomination that shouldn't count, so let's just pretend it doesn't exist.

Here's how it could be reimagined for the current continuity: on a mission into space, the team is exposed to radiation from a solar flare. But it's actually the cosmic entity known as "The Phoenix" that finds a host in - you guessed it - Wolverine. Now Wolverine can fly around and is encased in flame and has super telekinetic powers - but he still uses his claws a bunch to slash up some bad guys (no blood is shown though, because c'mon, gotta get that PG-13 rating). Ultimately the Wolverine Phoenix must sacrifice himself to save the X-Men and the world....OR DOES HE? See, he can heal, so you think he's dead, but he's actually still alive. BOOM! ROLL CREDITS!

Article Pwn Up: My Kingdom For a Heart

Pwn Up: Hey Guys Whats Up
My family is fully aware of my obsession with Kingdom Hearts, so when Kingdom Hearts 3D came out and the ending said KH3 would be released soon, I was more than sure it would come out in the PS3. With a few good arguments and explaining how a PS3 would be better than our current (at that time) PS2, my parents finally bought it. At this year's E3 though, when KH3 was finally announced I was more than excited, but a little dissapointed it was coming for PS4 and Xbox One. Now I'm hoping it'll release when I finish studying and have a job so I can buy it myself, and I'm just 18. See you in four years, KH3.-Stephanie

I was playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf and just doing some nightly rounds to look for new insects, since it was the initial days of July. I had just seen a scorpion and started walking towards it (I have to mention I was out for dinner and had run into some of my cousin's friends, who had just finished eating and were leaving). One of them extended his hand to say goodbye just as I was getting near the scorpion. I ignored him for a few seconds but then he said: "You need to let go of videogames from time to time." This made me lose concentration, release the button beforehand and finally get stung by the scorpion. To this day I still haven't caught the scorpion and refuse to shake the guy's hand.-Alberto

Lately, I've been going on walks around a nearby lake (probably about two miles) with my girlfriend after work every weekday. She really enjoys it and we talk about everything. However, the real reason I've been going on these walks is that since I got my car about a month ago, my 3DS has had a lot less play coins than normal because I don't have to walk to the train station every day to get to work and school.-Dylan

Article 4 Ghostbusters Games That Would Have Made Harold Ramis Proud

By Adam Wears / March 13, 2014

4 Ghostbusters Games That Would Have Made Harold Ramis Proud

Ghostbusters - against all logic and reason - is one of the few major film franchises to have an actually decent game made out of it. But the whole premise of Ghostbusters should allow for so many differnet kinds of amazing games, it's a shame developers haven't tried to get more inventive with the franchise. In honor of the recent passing of Harold Ramis, we therefore humbly present our suggestions for games that would make the great man himself proud.

 

1. Ghostbusters: The Sandbox Game

  4 Ghostbusters Games That Would Have Made Harold Ramis Proud

It's Just Like: Ghostbusters + Grand Theft Auto + L.A. Noire

 

Just imagine it: a sprawling, lovingly-detailed representation of 80's New York City where the streets are bustling, the crowds are thronging, and the ghosts are everywhere.

As a fully-fledged Ghostbuster, you take on cases that come to you via the HQ, all of which need to be solved in a variety of ways. Someone call in about a ghost in their bathroom? Simply race down there and zap that bad boy. There's a poltergeist stalking the corridors of a hotel? Follow the trail of destruction and send that thing to the other side. Mysterious occurrences down at the Natural History Museum? Scan the area with your P.K.E. Meter, set traps, and bust yourself a T-Rex ghost.

Alternatively, spend your time speeding through the streets in ECTO-1. Explore the city's most haunted locations, collect items to unlock new equipment, and harrass Walter Peck and his army of EPA agents (who actually have a legitimate point about how "trapping restless spirits using unlicensed nuclear accelerators" maybe not being the best idea).
