I never thought I'd be scared of playing games before. I mean, sure I was a pansy playing F.E.A.R. with the lights out in my room for the first time, and even Zombie Mod in CS:S creeped me out... But I mean scared in a different way. Never have I been afraid to play a game for fear of a returning game addiction... Until now.
Every time there's talk of a new and promising, hyped-up MMO on the tip of the gamers tongue, I feel slightly nervous. But watching the Age of Conan: Hyborian adventures trailers - resulting in goosebumps - was when I knew I was in deep trouble. What with being a recovering WoW addict, (three months clean, btw! A pretty good feat considering the copious amount of time I spent playing prior to detox) watching such a kick ass MMO trailer, terrifies me.
So the million dollar question arises: To Conan? Or not to Conan?

A while back you guys may remember I did a Top 7 Geek Panties for the girls post, well now it's your turn! After quite a bit of research I found that Nintendo has the biggest selection of underwear for guys, hands down. Other geek or game related "man-ties" (get it, instead of "panties") were not as exciting, and boys...you want your unders to be exciting, trust me. So here it is, the first Top 7 Mario Underwears for guys.
During one of my excursions deep into the heart of the internet I discovered a lovely collection of Star Wars Public Service Announcements. These PSAs are so much more than educational. I hope you all enjoy these and more importantly learn a lesson or two. Stay in school my young padowans. This first two are actual PSAs from the 70's or 80's. The others were made in parody of the originals.
Star Wars Tattoos by BunnyXaBlaze
I'm not exactly sure what has caused the massive ammount of Star Wars attention recently.. It might have something to do with Star Wars Force Unleashed coming out in September, the comics getting intense, the animated series coming out soon, or even the fact that a tv station has been playing Star Wars Ep. I through VI often. (I mean look at the article below.. It's Star Wars related!)
None the less, I thought I'd share a collection of some great Star Wars tattoos from around the internet, with a little suprise at the end of the article.
Let's get started!
Have you ever just had so many games to choose from and couldn't decide what to get? Well I am definitely having that dilemma right now. There are quite a few games that have come out and that will be coming out in a few days that I am really excited about so lets go through the list!
If you haven't realized yet I am a HUGE Pokemon fanatic. I have been obsessed with the games since the first time I played Pokemon Red on the Game-Boy. This series is simply amazing it takes everything that I love about the Pokemon games and gives me the chance of actually PLAYING as a Pokemon. They have added quite a few cool new features to the second installment of the Mystery Dungeon Series: Using the Wi-Fi Connection you can trade teams, exchange rescue requests, and you can even send SOS email/text messages! You have to take a personality quiz before you start the game and based on your answers is what Pokemon you will become. Who wouldn't love to see what Pokemon they would be? The cool thing about these games is that the dungeons in the game will never be the same so you will never get bored of exploring the different dungeons.
The other day I was talking with my boys from The Game Show and we are all a flutter with the upcoming release of GTA. Amongst the bickering we all finally agreed on something; that Liberty City has got to be the worst place to live. But that got me thinking, there are plenty of games where the backdrop is a city in turmoil. So here are the Top 7 worst places to live in video games.
Seven years after the fall of Hyrule, the bustling city of Castle Town has gone to shit. The town that was once full of children chasing cuccos, a Happy Mask Shoppe, and frolicking puppies is now full of the redead. Don't get to close, these zombies pretty much rape you. [Zelda:OoT]
