    This is Mad Catz's $300 S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 gaming keyboard. It has more bells and whistles than a bell and whistle factory and is definitely nicer than my laptop's keyboard, but only because my F and M keys are broken and I have to copy/paste them out of a Notepad document wheneve... / Continue →

    An 18-year old in Taiwan passed away after playing Diablo III for 40 hours straight with no food or rest (just like the title says!). That is just too long. You should take a break at LEAST every 20 hours. You don't jump off the high-dive right after pounding a hotdog, do yo... / Continue →

    This is a series of faux-leather gaming chairs from DreamSeat (pfft -- my dreamseat is the captain's chair of a spaceship) with licensed Marvel character back graphics. Per copy/pasted product description because it's Friday afternoon and I went out drinking last night because... / Continue →

    Note: This isn't the whole graphic, it's not even a fraction of it. Well, technically it is a fraction of it, but only like 18% (ignoring scaling). I'm not a dork, you're a dork. Click HERE for the whole damn thing. Looking: it's the best way to learn something. There's no... / Continue →

    This is the Church of Nintendo. Except not really because it's the Church of St. George in Lalibela, Ethiopia. The D-pad portion of the church and select button were actually carved out of solid rock. Sadly, the start and A and B buttons (trees) were all Photoshopped in. St... / Continue →
