Spoiler-Free Review of Luigi’s Mansion 2

Even though this 3DS game is a direct sequel, it isn’t necessary to have played the original Luigi’s Mansion on GameCube, as the storyline is completely self-contained. If you’ve been following Satoru Iwata and co’s Nintendo Direct presentations on 3DS’ eShop, you will know that it certainly is the “Year of Luigi.” Luigi’s Mansion 2 …

Check out this funny live action parody of the Harvest Moon video game series. Even if you’re not familiar with Harvest Moon (the games are million times better than the somewhat dry description they’re often given), the video is still comedy gold.

Maki Horikita Joins One Direction Press Conference, Her Fans Cringe

When I first saw this photo I was like, “Wait, that looks suspiciously like Maki Horikita.” My only coherent thought: Why?! Also, WTF?! OK, that’s two thoughts.

Fashion Fails, Fashion Wins

So I found a horribly absurd news article the other day. Those creatures spawned from the depths of hell, the Trollsen Twins, i.e. Hairy-Kate and Trashley, have been named Vogue’s best dressed of this year. Yeah, seriously.

More Hunger Games Parodies, But By Other People!

This You Tube video is quite possibly the funniest thing I’ve seen all year. I meant to post this before, but anyway. There’s also a full-length THG parody novel due out soon, but I’m steering clear of it for now since I’m still working on my own fic. All I’ve read on it is a …
