Ah, the holidays -- A time of boundless cheer, goodwill toward men and bountiful generosity. Poppycock.
Whether or not you realize it, the gift-giving season is a cutthroat battle of attrition, plagued with lose-lose transactions in which loved ones rack up debt to swap things they don’t want or need. Re
Whether you're talking sports, movies or your sex life, it's always more fun to root for the underdog. Quality flicks that flop at the box office tend to pick up a more fervent, zealous following than the Avengers and Dark Knights of the world. Here are
'The Expendables 2' has yet to open — it stumbles into theaters Aug. 17 — but it's not too early to start dreaming of cast additions for the inevitable third leg of the trilogy. Heck, it's not too early to start wishing for people to appear in the sequel.
Throwing away most everything that made the original Zelda great, the slapped-together follow-up finds a tiny Link doll waddling through a needlessly huge overworld, only to transform into a spindly doofus who hops through side-scrolling levels when he's confronted with a monster or enters a town or dungeon
"Ya know what's wrong with connect the dots?" one producer must have said to another. "There's not enough Ouija Board in it." And hence, Anticipation was born.
Billing itself as Nintendo's first board game, it asked you to pass the controller around as you took turns guessing the name of the connect-the-dots object onscreen through the tedious process of scrolling through the alphabet and e v e r s o s l o w l y punching in usually-misspelled guess
If there's one way to simulate the abilities of Olympic athletes, the developers figured, it was the pounding of the A button until your skin starts to peel off. No matter whether you choe triple jump, canoeing, pole vault or any other of the events, your job was to pound that A button to build up your power level
Although the NES had its highs, giving us some of our favorite gaming memories, it definitely wasn't shy about drilling us with stinkers at regular intervals. Here are the 10 NES games that made us cry, starting with number 10:
Wrecking Crew — At least one of the crappy single-screen Mario games deserved a spot on this list, and we went back and forth between this and Mario Bros. for a while. Th
NES games were notoriously tough, but this one took things overboard. You play as a dagger-tossing prince who tries to kill impossible-to-kill creatures and find hidden shops to upgrade his equipment in order to make the creatures only slightly impossible to kill
No game inspired as much controller-slamming rage as this brutal side-scroller. Memories of the water-set disable-the-bomb level still creep into our nightmares, and thoughts of tangling with the ridiculous bosses still makes us shudder
Back when The Simpsons was new, we begged our parents for anything with Bart's face on it, and convinced myself that the crappy t-shirts, this game and The Simpsons Sing the Blues cassette tape were all amazing
In the world of Chuck Darwin's Extinction Squad, all it takes to save endangered species is to hang out underneath cliffs the animals march off of, holding out a stretcher that bounced the little fuzzballs to safety.
Potheads are known for being forgetful, but someone took the stereotype to the extreme, leaving 7,000 pounds of marijuana valued at $3.6 million just floating off the coast of Orange County, California.
Unless you spend a bunch of time in a garage, it's not always second nature to know which power tool to use for which ill-advised do-it-yourself project. It's bad enough that our projects always end in injury and the shame of paying a handyman -- or wilting as we beg our disapproving father-in-law to work for free -- to fix up our failures.
Imagine tearing down the highway at 180 mph, then careening off a pier, having your ride transform into a watercraft and burning through the wet stuff at 60 mph. What used to be the stuff of James Bond fantasies is now reality, in the form of the Sea Lion, an amphibious beast created by inventor Marc Witt.
