PlayStation 4 Air Jordans come with HDMI cable, cost $950

PlayStation 4 Air Jordans come with HDMI cable, cost $950

Sep 17, 2014

These PlayStation 4 Air Jordans are quite possibly the stupidest thing to ever come out of collectible sneaker culture. I originally thought this was a joke by the humorous folk over at Clickhole, but it appears to be all too real. Not only are these Air Jordans priced at $950, but they include HDMI ports in the heels because “quirk”. In an...

First look at Robin Williams’ World of Warcraft NPC

First look at Robin Williams’ World of Warcraft NPC

Aug 20, 2014

When Blizzard confirmed they would honor the petition to add a non-playable tribute character to World of Warcraft in memory of our dearly departed Robin Williams, I was left in a puddle of tears. Robin Williams was a huge influence on my life growing up. In a sense, he could be considered the father I never had growing up; he was always looking out for me in...

Donald Duck confirmed for Disney Infinity 2.0

Aug 12, 2014

As a Disney nerd, it’s still hard to believe that I didn’t love Disney Infinity. Don’t get me wrong, I respected what it was trying to do – create an interactive ecosystem that actually justified the purchase of additional toys that didn’t suck. But in the end, Skylanders: Swap Force’s gameplay was simply better. However,...

Relic Hunters Zero aims to be Steam’s first Play4Real title

Relic Hunters Zero aims to be Steam’s first Play4Real title

Aug 11, 2014

Could Relic Hunters Zero be the free-to-play title we deserve? That just might be the case considering the Brazilian indie duo of Rogue Snail appear to believe in crafting products of love instead of easy cash grabs. That alone instantly sets them miles ahead of most of the other developers using Steam Greenlight to get their game distributed to the masses....

Why BioShock on iOS isn’t the end of the world

Aug 9, 2014

When I first heard that BioShock was being ported to iOS, I joined the gaming community in letting out a collective sigh and agreed that a mobile version of one of the most revered console games of all time was not something the world needed. However, since the announcement and after much thought, my outlook has changed. Maybe mobile ports of games with a level...
