News: Pokemon Games to Play

June 30, 2008

Pokemon has been a significant player in the realm of games.  At one point the highest selling card game on the market, its video games, board games, tv shows, movies, and whole slew of other paraphenalia have made it one of Japan and Nintendo’s biggest cash cows. However, quite often one finds themselves asking which […]

Wasted Weekend Video: Carry On My Wayward Son

May 30, 2008

My posts have been lacking. It may be based on the fact that this week has gone for far too long, and when I finally get here, I just don’t have the energy to post. But I found enough to post this video Again, watch this video drunk and/or high. The thing will blow your […]

News: I’m willing to admit when I’m wrong

May 27, 2008

I haven’t posted in a while. I may do my review on Indiana Jones (I didn’t hate it!), or some of my misadventures at lvl 70 (I got my first epic item!), but there was something more important to post today. Kotaku released a video from LoadingReadyRun, which is also featured on Game Revolution, about […]

Wasted Weekend Video: Jake Shimabukuro

May 16, 2008

I wanted to start a new section on Fun With Controllers. In between gaming on weekends, I enjoy getting inebriated with friends. Aside from a diverse beer selection, and listening to rock music, we also like to watch youtube and movies while, well, drunk. So for all those planning on getting drunk this weekend, and […]

May 14, 2008

They just posted an article on Gizmodo about Indiana Jones Fedoras. But it gets better. The item is for sale on Think Geek, another great site for geek swag. This just lightens my geeky day. -Mike

News: Stop Uwe Boll and Get Free Gum – Its Win-Win

May 8, 2008

I just recently read an article about stopping Uwe Boll. Right there, I was hooked. For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. Boll, he is the monster behind basically every horrible video game movie. He is so god awful, that when he said he wanted to do the Metal Gear Solid movie, Hideo Kojima said […]

News: Jimmy Fallon SUCKS

May 8, 2008

Well, this isn’t exactly news, because he’s sucked forever. I listen to a lot of online radio at work. It provides a free variety of music. In fact the 90s alternative station is just like my own iTunes library, so I love it. But it is too high to play with everyone in the office, […]

Games at a Glance: GTA IV

April 28, 2008

Grand Theft Auto/GTA is probably the most controversial video game series in history. Even more so than Counter-Strike, GTA has become the scape goat whenever someone who once played video games ends up killing someone. Usually the psychos making this claim are right-wing nuts who care more about video game control than gun control. I […]

News: Mobile Sites

April 28, 2008

Wap and mobile (.mobi) sites, for those of you unaware of what these are, are sites designed to be viewed on mobile devices, such as cell phones. That doesn’t mean you can’t view them with a regular browser, they just appear stretched as you can’t fit a lot into a 2 inch screen. There are […]

Game Review: Earth Defense Force 2017

April 25, 2008

Let me get something out in the air: while I am a fan of Japan, its culture, food, history, impact on gaming and animation, etc. I do not like Japanocentricity. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, watch or play anything from Japan: does that game or show take place in Japan? Japanocentricity is […]
