Coupled. It’s Game Time

I know there are a lot of girls out there who wish their boyfriend would just put down the friggin controller already and step away from the Playstation.

The Weekly Wrap Up: Lame on Friday Night

Fridays kill me. On the one hand I want nothing more than to head to the bar to drink away another long week (and simultaneously avoid creepers), but then I'm so tired I can barely get off the couch.

Fashionably Techie: Old School Games

So I was browsing the shelves of Gamestop the other day and noticing that Nintendo was putting out a slew (well maybe not a slew so much as a few) of games that were Gamecube games remixed for the Wii’s controls.
