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.

Forget Wii Baseball – Wii “Lose Your V-Card” is Where It’s At

Video games and virgins are a timeless pairing as classic as Thelma and Louise, Brad and Angelina, and Simon and Garfunkel. The two fit so flawlessly together that it's hard to look past the age-old stereotype.

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.
