Ever tried to creep out whoever sits in the same lunch table as you? If you haven’t but want to, go for these specially printed Lunch Bugs. They’re sandwich bags with insects printed on them for mass (hysterical) effect.

EA’s long standing plan to transition from selling game products to selling game services is apparently coming to a head in a fairly surprising way.

Chrono Trigger Gracing PSP & PS3

When a game is still news sixteen years after release, you can probably surmise it was kind of awesome Either that, or it was involved in a massive subliminal rick-rolling incident that only came to light years too late for anyone to do anything about it.

Gamestop Stopping DS Lite Sales After Current Stock Runs Out

We’d say it’s had a good run, but we’d be lying. Seeing how probably more than half the hundred million DS units sold so far are Lites, it’s had a eye-wateringly spectacular run.

The Appeal Of Glasses: A Japanese Fetish

Kotaku has a new article on the Japanese phenomenon known as “meganekko” which roughly translates to “girl with glasses”.

It’s a staple of almost every genre of entertainment: from film to television, from manga to videogames, the “girl with glasses” stereotype is a common shorthand used to denote authority, shyness or intelligence.
