Pwn Up: The Language of Love - Image 1
When I was in junior high, I was obsessed with Mystical Ninja starring Goemon for the N64. It required a memory pack to save, which I didn't have, so restarting the system meant starting over completely. I left my N64 on for a week straight, playing it religiously, and finally got to the final boss. As I fought valiantly, my mom lurched by my door with a pile of stuff in her arms, all about to fall out. When she called out for me to help her, I stammered "b-but there's no pause button!" She still brings it up as my most disappointing moment as a son, but I did finally beat the game.-Jon

I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn't know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.-Max

To help combat a thesis I had procrastinated writing all semester, I dosed myself with an Adderall. I figured I would stumble on the internet a bit while I waited for it to kick in. I stumbled upon a Pokemon Crystal emulator that I couldn't pass up playing – unfortunately the Adderall kicked in after I chose my first Pokemon. I didn't eat, sleep, or begin writing my thesis until I had defeated the Elite Four about 40 hours later.-Jake

Article Children Review LEGO Videogames

The newest Lego video game, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, was just released. The best thing about Legos (or LEGO, if you're gonna be that guy) is that kids love them. Seriously, they go crazy for Legos. Commonsense Media has given a wonderful gift to the world by allowing child gamers a platform to express their feelings about Lego games. We've gathered some of the best.

Here are some rave reviews that children wrote about LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes:

About a month ago, my online buddy showed me Star Trek porn in order to mock it mercilessly. I pretended to think it was ridiculous, but I actually thought it was hot. Later in the week, I watched it again on my laptop in my room. I didn't want my roommates to find out, so I tried to be as discreet as possible. After I was done, I realized that my headphones were plugged into the microphone jack. I thought the sound as coming from my headset. My roommates heard everything. -Anonymous

I was at my first anime convention. The convention was in a hotel and the part of the hotel we were staying at had rooms with windows facing towards the walkways and pool. As my friends and I were walking back to our room from the dealer's room, I heard a slow, yet deliberate hissing noise. As we walked closer to the stairwell, it got louder and louder until we were right in front of a man in a creeper suit. I screamed bloody murder.-Princess Peachie

I got Super Mario Bros 2 for Xmas. My little sister watched as I got all the way up to 7-1, and then suspiciously ran out the room. Just as I finished the level, my parents came in with her in tow, telling me "you've played the game enough, it's her turn" and that I had to hand over the controller – on the last level of a game I haven't beaten yet. I was even more furious as she managed to kill off my stockpile of extra lives in about 10 mins. Then to ice the cake, before she handed the controller back to me for my turn, she selected Mario just to piss me off (I played the whole thing as Luigi). I'm 36 and it still mad at her about it.-mil

Article Overheard on Xbox: Issue #35

January 25, 2011

Ever hear something horrible and/or hilarious on Xbox Live? Send your submissions to overheardonxbox at gmail.

I was playing COD:BO with my ex-girlfriend. When we played I always used to abuse a certain gamer. This was called iAmAsUpR1337 and I was going apesh*t at this guy and it didn't help that he was getting 1 kill every 4 deaths. So this kid goes offline after ten minutes of pure abuse and after the game me and my girlfriend go to sleep . When we arrived at her parents house her younger brother, who is seven, said that he finally got Live and Black Ops. I asked him what his gamertag was and he said IAmAsUpR1337. My girlfriend broke-up with me the same day.-Eli
I was playing Left 4 Dead 2 online and I started making conversation with a guy on my team. I told him I was having a good vacation, and then asked him "are you on Spring Break, too?" to which he replied "everyday is spring break when you're unemployed."-Julien
