Friend or Relative Alerts You of a Major Life Event Via Text

Your cousin is getting married? Your best friend just found out she was pregnant? Your dad was hit head-on by a semi-truck and is in the ICU of the local hospital, where your mom is sitting in the waiting room, catatonic from shock and a grief so deep it is completely unknowable?

Article Pwn Up: Halo...Is It Me You're Looking For?

Pwn Up: HaloIs It Me Youre Looking For

 

This week, my girlfriend and I had our fifth year anniversary. The day was nearly over and we didn't have enough time to enjoy a romantic movie, so I said I had an alternative and popped in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Knowing she didn't know a whole lot about it, I played through the entire Kafei and Anju sidequest. She smiled at Anju's promise to wait, sat there scared that Kafei wouldn't make it back to the inn in time, and was utterly gratified when Kafei and Anju finally reunited.

Back in the day when Halo first came out, I had a group of friends that always hung out and played multiplayer. One of the guys, lets call him KC,  was REALLY into his gamertag: Knight.  One night when we were playing, before he could sign into the game I created a character under his gamertag, thus rendering him unable to choose the name Knight in the current game.  This upset him so much that he ran downstairs (playing system link) and tried to break down the door which we had locked. After that proved useless he packed his stuff and drove home.  On his way home he called us up and screamed that if we wanted to play under that name, we had to fight him for it.  The next time he came out to play, we let him choose his character, but everyone else's gamer tags were some sort of pun on the word Knight:  Knight Lite, Knight Boat, Kniet Coke, and Knight Rider.

-Shon

 

I've been teaching my high school students for over a month now.  I should know everyone's name & how to pronounce them, but I still don't.  One girl is named Hodolis.  I never call on her because I asked her like three times how to say her name and it's too far into the semester for me to not know.  I decided to call on her one day and I pronounced it "Hodorless."   I held my breath, fearing some Game of Thrones fan would start cracking up.  No one did.  Whew.

Article "Who" Will Be The Next "Doctor Who"?

By Andrew Bridgman / August 5, 2013

[Note: This article was written prior to the announcement that Peter Capaldi had won the role, and we didn't have time to write a new one after putting hundreds of hours of research and hard work into this article. We spent countless hours in the office discussing potential candidates, investigating rumors, and calculating the odds – but I think the thoroughness of the article should speak for itself. Enjoy!]

Who Will Be The Next Doctor Who
The Candidate: Matt Smith againOdds: 1:2Notes:
  • The perfect choice – would make us shout "Who-ray!" (like "hooray" but with a Doctor Who twist)
  • Already has a history with the show
  • Tumblr already has a bunch of gifs of him, proving him a worthy candidate

Article 10 of the Most Delicious-Looking Meals Tweeted By Hideo Kojima

By Andrew Bridgman / March 10, 2014

Hideo Kojima, the mysterious creator of the Metal Gear series, loves a few things: long, extended cutscenes, toying with gamer expectations, and tweeting out pictures of amazing looking food. Since we've gotten plenty of the first two, let's take a look at the food stuff:

This is what Hideo Kojima has for dinner when he's running late. My microwaved, still half-frozen Bagel Bites look just as good though.

Article Welcome to 'Welcome to Night Vale'

By Chloe Cole / January 15, 2014

Welcome to Night Vale was the most downloaded podcast on iTunes in July 2013 after its first year. What's Night Vale, you say? Is it a fixed location in space? A cult? A special tool used to scrub ectoplasm off your bathroom floor?

  Welcome to Welcome to Night Vale

Imagine if Goosebumps, The Twilight Zone and The X-Files all took place in one small fictional town in the middle of the desert. That's Night Vale. The podcast follows the local radio station's reports.

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!

Pwn Up: Filmographics

Hey Dorkly, here's a Christmas story I hope makes its way into Pwn Up. Enjoy!

 

Every year my brother and I exchange a notoriously bad old school videogame for Christmas as a gag gift. This year, I thought I would step it up and give him the gift he really wanted. 

Anyway keep doing awesome work and have a great holiday!

   The Best of 2013: Staff Picks

 

We did a lot of things in 2013 - maybe you've seen the top 30 comics (#30 - #21 / #20 - #11 / #10 - #1) or the top 20 articles (#20 - #11 / #10 - #1)? But there were a lot of things we did that didn't reach a huge amount of popularity, and so we thought we'd list them out here and give some insight into them. These are our 2013 staff picks!

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).
