Pwn Up: Let Sleeping Dogs Lay
So I have a license, but I do not own a car. For the past six years the only driving I've done has been from driving a big-ass work truck. Over the past few days, I have been playing Sleeping Dogs quite a bit. The game takes place in Hong Kong and, of course, the roads are opposite of American roads (you drive on the left side in the game). I have not driven the truck in a while and today was the first time I got to in months. I take a left and calmly keep the turn tight knowing that the left side of the road is my direction. Imagine my surprise when a car comes headlong at me and I swerve into the right side of the road remembering that I am not in Hong Kong.-KDL

So there is this local Pokémon tournament in my town that I wanted to enter myself in – but they were using SoulSilver and HeartGold, and all my Pokémon are in Platinum (over 300). I spent a whole night in SoulSilver catching 300 Pidgeys to trade into Platinum for my best Pokémon.

I ended up winning the tournament.-Anthony

I've been seeing this girl for some time now, and suddenly she starts showing more interest for my tattoo (I have the hearts from The legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on my arm), like what game its from and so on… Well today I found out she had an ulterior motive with the information, and here is the result…-Esben

Pwn Up: Pwn Up Or Shut Up
I have a friend that I play co-op with in Borderlands 2; we have fun usually, but he finds it funny if he can somehow kill me in the game while I do my best to actually complete missions. I did find a way to get even with him however. We were in one section called The Dust, running around a junkyard, when I say, "Oh, I found something neat here the other day. Hop in the car crusher." He responds with, "No, you'll just pull the lever and kill me." "Come on, just hop in there – there's something in there you really want." (he's an obsessive vault symbol hunter, trophy collector, etc.) He answers, "Well why don't you jump in there and show me what it is?" I sigh and say, "Fine, ya big baby," and hop in. He, of course, immediately pulls the lever that activates the crusher, killing me instantly. I respawn laughing and say, "Thanks! You just got me a trophy!" For those of you who haven't played BL2, there's a trophy for getting killed by a friend in the car crusher. You can't get it by crushing yourself, either, and I refused to crush him, saying, "You didn't believe me the first time, so why should I?" The best part? I got my revenge by doing nothing other than relying on what he normally does to me.

One day during summer, I decided to move my PS3 down to my living room to play on a big 52' flat screen TV. While playing Infamous 2 on the Villain track, an explosion happened rumbling my controller. At the exact same time of the in-game explosion, a earthquake happened rumbling my entire house. I thought the game had amazing realistic graphics.

I'm a huge Skyrim fan (a little late to the bandwagon) and recently, disaster struck. I was playing on my secondary account but then when I went to save after about an hour, I accidentally saved over my primary account. What made me mad wasn't losing all my Daedric artifacts, losing my wife and two kids, losing my dragon priest masks or losing my vampire lord perks – it was losing my favorite companion, J'zargo.

Goodnight, sweet Khajit prince – you are in a better place now.

Article 5 Reasons Why Katherine Dorselburg Is A Terrible Choice To Play Terrified Metropolis Citizen #3

By Andrew Bridgman / December 4, 2013

5 Reasons Why Katherine Dorselburg Is A Terrible Choice To Play Terrified Metropolis Citizen 3

Today, Zack Snyder announced he had finally cast the role of Terrified Metropolis Citizen #3 for his upcoming film, Batman vs. Superman - and the actress portraying her is none other than Katherine Dorselburg. Naturally, the fan community is in an uproar over whether or not Ms. Dorselburg is right for the crucial role. Frankly, we here at Dorkly think she's an awful, awful choice, and here's why.

 

1. Way Too Skinny

5 Reasons Why Katherine Dorselburg Is A Terrible Choice To Play Terrified Metropolis Citizen 3

Everyone knows Terrified Metropolis Citizen #3 is thin - but a lean, muscular thin, not the kind of bony thin that Katherine Dorselburg is and has been expected to be throughout her entire career in Hollywood up to this point and by society at large, which criticizes women for not looking dangerously underweight all the time. Plus, it's not like she can put on muscle through a training and diet regimen (the way all male actors in superhero and action films do) - since we've only seen her at one consistent body type, she definitely 100% is going to have that body type in playing her character, and it will be awful (because how she looks is obviously the most important factor in her portrayal).

Pwn Up: Sonic the KnowledgeHog
A few days ago, I went to a presentation of a scientific project. It was about medical stuff, and I was distracted and kinda bored. However, at some point I recognized the words "Sonic" and "hedgehog" being said by the doctor, so I quickly looked up at the presentation to confirm that what I heard wasn´t my imagination. It turns out that there's a human protein called Sonic hedgehog and it seemed that I was the only one in the room who notice the reference to certain blue character.-Anonymous

I was checking out at the convenience shop in my university. The line was long and due to the fact that it was 9:00am, some people were still groggy and grumpy. In spite of this, the cashier was very friendly and nice. She was asking the customers random and sometimes funny questions as she rung them up. When it came to my turn, she asked me

"If you could be the very best at one thing, what would it be?"

"Pokemon training," I answered, without a moment's hesitation.

"Like no one ever was?" she added.

We high-fived.-Christopher

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 What Would You Do For a Next Gen Console?

By Chloe Cole / November 26, 2013

What crazy stuff would the people of Twitter do for an Xbox One or a PS4? Murder, organ donation, selling loved ones, and butt stuff are just some of the things. Actually, "butt stuff" is most of the things. You'll see.
