Article Overheard on Xbox: Issue #26

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

I was playing execution on Gears of War 2 when I noticed that there was somebody on the other team that had the gamertag "Dr Phil." Each time he was killed, I would ask, "how does that make you feel?" in my best Dr. Phil voice. Everyone was laughing, except Dr Phil of course!- Preston
I overheard the last part of a story coming into a room:"[and] it turned out, I wasn't even wearing my underwear on my head!"- Mans
I was in a MW2 lobby in between games and two kids who were apparently friends were talking to each other when one of their dads gets on the mic to ask the other if his dad was home. He kept asking "is your dad home? Hey billy is your dad home?" and the kid either didn't hear or wasn't paying attention so I chimed in "yeah billy IS your dad home??" The guy proceeded to call me a sick bastard for preying on kids on X-box live and then I overheard him grounding his son for playing with pedophiles.- John B.

Article Pwn My Life: Issue #45

November 11, 2010

Ever had a moment so nerdy that you needed to tell the Internet about it? Read more nerd confessions at Collegehumor, and send your submissions to dorklypwnmylife at gmail.

From 5th to 6th grade, I had the biggest crush on a girl in my class and no social skills. This was bad news for her. She suffered a lot pseudo-stalking, odd behavior, and random, creepy notes filled with my best (awkward and terrifying) attempts to imitate Shakespeare. Somehow none of it was getting her to acknowledge my existance. As if I hadn't traumatized her enough, I did the most romantic thing I could think of. I serenaded her with the complete song and lyrics from the opera house scene in Final Fantasy 3. In our homeroom. In the middle of the day. On graduation day. I thought it was going great until she ran screaming and crying down the hall. I'd love the chance to get in touch with her to apologize, but to this day she hasn't joined a single social networking site. I wonder why.-Michael

I brought the Maximum Carnage trade paperback with me when I got a tattoo, so I would have something to read while they did it. The tattoo artist asked if I wanted a spiderman tattoo, and I had to stop for a moment because I couldn't decide if I wanted to get my original idea or Spiderman.-Anonymous

I work as a waitress in a small restaurant. Our boss let's us wear what we want as long as it's appropriate and we don't mind getting it dirty. I made myself a bartender's outfit with an apron, dyed my hair blonde, cut it short, and started wearing sunglasses. Every day I go to work cosplaying as Heiwajima Shizuo from the anime Durarara and no one else knows it.-NK

Article The Dorklyst: The 15 Greatest Arcade Games of the 90's

November 10, 2010


Before everyone had four consoles in their house and a phone that had more games than phone numbers, the only way to play the newest and coolest videogames was to steal $10 from your mom's fanny pack, hop on your bike, and head to the arcade. We honor the quarters that sacrificed their lives in the last decade of the 20th century with this tribute.

15. Gauntlet Legends

Gauntlet itself was always pretty fun – a hack 'n slash fantasy adventure with wizards and warriors and hordes of bad guys – but the big selling point here was the ability to level up and actually save your characters; giving you the feeling of real accomplishment with each token spent. It was like owning the game, except you were leasing it one quarter at a time. Then again, if you wanted to actually accomplish something, you could have been putting those tokens into that skeeball game to work your way to that glow-in-the-dark yo-yo that was going for a mere 150,000 tickets.


14. NFL Blitz

I don't think anyone would disagree with football having a lot less rules about late hits, excessive celebration, and pretty much doing whatever you want on the field (well, maybe actual players would). For all of us, NFL Blitz was a dream come true – brutally hitting players a good 10 seconds after the play was over, flinging opponents onto the ground, constant fake punts, pass interference that would send most refs into an epileptic frenzy – it had everything. This was what I think everyone expected the XFL to be, and if it had been, maybe it would still be around today (RIP Memphis Maniax).
