The new DualShock controller for the PlayStation 4 was revealed to have a 'Share' button a button for taking pictures and videos of gameplay and sharing them through social networks. Here are a few other buttons Sony should consider adding:
The life of a Pokemon is not a good one: they wander aimlessly in the grass, the desert, and the sea, attacking literally anything that comes by. Inevitably, they will be brutally beaten and captured by a trainer, who will keep them in a tiny ball or trapped in some PC ("Bill's PC", or "Whatever PC" in later vesions). Then, if they're lucky enough to escape their Tron-esque digital nightmare world, they will occasionally be trotted out to battle other Pokemon where they will be burnt, frozen, paralyzed, poisoned, and a million other horrible things all so some loser trainer can win some badges. But, even among Pokemon, some are far more miserable than the others. They actually have lives that are significantly worse. Here are the 10 most miserable creatures in Pokemon.
"It has a soft and bouncy body. Once it starts bouncing, it becomes impossible to stop." (Pokemon Diamond)
Igglybuff looks like the happiest, most joy-filled Pokemon creature ever. And it very well might be! For the precious few moments of its life when it's still, that is. Because the second it bounces, that's it it bounces forever. It's entire life is constant, perpetual motion in total defiance of Newton's laws that is wholly unstoppable, like some terrible amusement park ride that never ends. Plus, its name is Igglybuff and it's a weaker version of Jigglypuff. It doesn't get much worse than that.
The thing that sets apart great comic books from the rest are the quality of their villains. While superheroes are stuck playing the boring good guy know-it-alls, villains get to plan the crazy schemes, blow stuff up, and cause the kinds of havoc and destruction that makes comic books work. And after over 850,000 votes (check out the results here), Dorkly readers and people who have never read Dorkly but just really wanted to see Ocean Master hold his own (in which case, bad news, guys
) have decided who were the best of the best. Or
best of the worst? The worst of the worst?
they picked the bad guys they liked the most. And here are the 25 greatest comic book villains of all-time.
25. Poison Ivy
Being named after a plant that gives people a mildly irritating rash isn't really the best start for a villain, but Poison Ivy (or Pamela Isley, as she's called on her driver's license) is more formidable than you'd expect. While it's never made a whole lot of sense why Batman doesn't just straight up murder most of the villains he runs across, you can almost understand his unwillingness to kill Poison Ivy he usually wants to have sex with her. Not only is she (by most accounts) pretty attractive, but she also uses some pheremones and toxins to hypnotize Bruce into falling for her (or just to poison him). But her greatest skill is using her abilities to turn heroes against each other Batman against Superman, Batman against Robin, etc. Now if only her dermatologist could do something about that green skin thing.
Disney has announced their intentions to produce new standalone Star Wars film spin-offs, focusing on individual characters like Han Solo. Here are 5 ideas that the executives are probably tossing around right now.

I was driving home from work and while at a stoplight behind a dude with the license plate "TREKIE", I honked, held up my phone case (science division in Spock blue with the Trek symbol) and gave the Vulcan salute. He laughed and returned the gesture. I'm sure there was a limit on the characters in the license plate or someone already had the correct version, but I was secretly upset his plate didn't say "TREKKIE" (with an extra "K").
When I was 5 or 6, I had gotten Pokemon LeafGreen for the Gameboy Advance my first experience with Pokemon. After I got my Bulbasaur, I managed to go to Viridian and got stuck for a long time, not knowing I had to deliver the parcel to Oak. I didn't know what to do, so I kept battling wild Pokemon to a point where I had a Venusaur just from level 2-3 Pokemon's exp. points. The next couple hours were pretty boring, since my Venusaur was at a way higher level than everything I ran into.
There are a lot of things you should never do drunk drive, text, walk, pretty much anything except "fall asleep and hope you wake up with a low-level headache." The list gets even longer when you're a videogame character, who should probably be saving the world or preparing for battle instead of trying to re-enact the SHOTS video. But that never stopped some virtual characters from takin' a few swigs too many at some inappropriate times. These are the 8 most irresponsible drinkers in videogame history.
8. Commander Shepard (Mass Effect 2)
While he's supposedly in a race against time to recruit a team to save the universe from the Reaper menace, Commander Shepard can sidle up to a bar and ask for a few drinks. And if he keeps asking for drinks, eventually the turian bartender will offer to make a special krogan drink for him, since Shepard's pretty sure he can handle it (having already come back from the dead once this game, odds are they can resurrect his liver once more, right?). It's a drink that's so strong that it's practically radioactive (which usually doesn't matter for krogans, given the whole "our entire race is dying out anyway" thing). If Shepard takes the drink, he instantly passes out and wakes up on a bathroom floor. Ignoring the nasty questions of how exactly he ended up there, it feels like maybe Shepard should get back to trying to stop those deep space-dwelling civilization-eaters instead of knocking back space-margaritas and passing out in front of urinals.
