Robert Terwilliger, otherwise known as Sideshow Bob had a frown on his face as he looked up at the banner on the outside of a building that said "Springfield Gamers, Video Game Convention" on it. He sighed as he looked down. "Why did I let myself get talked into this?" he asked in a thinking out-loud way.
"Because if you said no, your only son would throw a fit." came the voice of his younger brother Cecil who was standing beside him. The two had been dragged here by their sons Gino and William who as it turned out were really into video games which the two boys played quite a lot much to their fathers dismay.
"I am never going to understand these things or our sons weird obsession with them, for that matter." Bob stated to his brother as he crossed his arms. "I doubt any parent really does." Cecil added before he started to head inside the building, with Bob following him in.
Inside there was many tables set up and areas with stands that had people on them, talking. "Egad, how do they

"Find your own branch, you tard! This one's going to break!"
"It's not going to break, just move a little so I can get up there and see over! What is it, anyway?"
"Not sure, it looks like a big mansion. Kind of like a castle. I just caught a glimpse of a girl though. Looked really hot."
"Serious?! Shut up! Let me see the binoculars!"
"Not yet! I think they're having a party, I see balloons. Really big balloons. That's weird, I don't think I've ever seen ba .JESUS! You should see the ass on this girl! And HER! Oh man! They're all over the house! We have got to get in there!"
The thin young man's head was about to explode from sheer overload when his fellow tree climber grabbed the binoculars out of his hands. He didn't want to give up the view just yet, but he also didn't want to get in a fight while perched on a tree branch. He pushed his shaggy copper hair out of his eyes and put his glasses back on. "Check it out. Top left window. And bottom right."

From Norwegian developers comes a sweet little platformer that might have flown under the radar, even for indie gamers. It was released only recently, a little too late in the year, as many bloggers and journalists were already too busy writing out their own lists of the best titles of the year. Still, I had found out and given it a shot.
Teslagrad is a yet another 2D sidescrolling Metroidvania platformer, but in contrast to the lighthearted Guacamelee or the whacky Rogue Legacy, this is a darker affair. The game starts when an invading army breaks through the walls of some technologically advanced steampunk city, and the mother of the player character hurriedly motions for her son to head for the castle in the center.
The opening is a chase scene, but certainly not a cutscene. You have to outrun the invaders with a little parkour.
Once you’re inside, you’ll find the castle is some steampunk utopia, albeit replace the steam w

So Live and Let Die did incredibly well at the box office and since mixing Bond and blaxploitation worked out well, mixing the franchise with martial arts is bound to work out, right? Not much apparently. Well the thing is, this was supposed to be made after You Only Live Twice and to be filmed in Cambodia but that didn't work out due to the Civil War in said country. And consequently, this was the last film to be co-produced by Harry Saltzman who left the franchise over finicial difficulties and sold his share to United Artists. But what really doesn't help this film is that critics, audiences and fans of the franchise remain mixed on this particular installment leaning towards the negative. So, what's the story then?
Bond (played by Roger Moore) is targeted by a rich assasin by the name of Francisco Scaramanga (played by Christopher Lee) and due to the threat on his life, M relieves him of his assignment but our favorite secret agent will have none of that and sets out to find the ma

He sat in the snow, simply marveling at her tantalizing beauty. The way her golden curls caressed her rosy cheeks, the way she would simply glide along the pond's edge without a care in the world. A sigh escaped his lips as he gazed after her.
She leapt into the air, turning a full 360 degrees before landing on a single foot, with the other extended behind her. She didn't lose balance for a moment. Her violet-colored scarf flowed behind her, tangling with the long, blonde curls.
He remained where he was, still stunned by the was she danced along the ice so magnificently, as he absent-mindedly twirled the fraying end of his coat sleeve.

Slapstick. Noun. Comedy characterized by horseplay and physical action.
If you couldn't guess by the title, I'm talking about The Three Stooges. And really, who hasn't heard of them? They actually made their film debut on September 30th, 1930 but contrary to popular belief, the group started out as just Moe, Larry and Shemp before Curly replaced him in 1933, two years later and there was a fourth man who headed the group named Ted Healy is considered the true creator of The Three Stooges.
In fact, the first of the many Stooges shorts made its debut on May 5th, 1934 with the trio everyone knows and loves. One thing led to another and they became bonafide hits and still remembered today. Despite the replacements for Curly being Shemp and Joe, people associate Curly with Moe and Larry as the definitive Three Stooges.
Even with the original actors dead, Hollywood couldn't help but make more starting with Saturday morning cartoons with The New Three Stooges and even Hanna Barbera couldn't h

For the first time in a long while, the Loyan family had gathered together to embark on a vacation. Queen Sara had been quite adamant about visiting the warm beaches of Darbor's shores, going out of her way to drag her husband King Antonio away from his busy schedule to do so.
Naturally, their two daughters, Nadia and Elvina had tagged along, both sharing their mother's excitement in getting a chance to kick back and relax under the sun. The Royal Guards Rui, Rika and Ruki and maid Marie rounded out the trope.
Unfortunately, by the time they got there the weather had proven to be cooler than they had expected. Rather than spending much time on the beach itself, they instead opted to relax within their private resort some distance away.
Despite the setback, the day passed by smoothly, the group still enjoying their change in location. All except one, who, much to her surprise, found herself thinking
"This is boring!" Elvina complained as she lounged on the resort's front patio.

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States of America. He was nicknamed Honest Abe, he freed the slaves, born in a log cabin and was unfortnately assinated by John Wilkes Booth. He left behind a legacy to which he still garners respect for. Then came a novel by a little known author named Seth-Grahame-Smith, the man behind the mashup novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies turned Lincoln into a vampire slaying badass called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
It earned good reviews when it was first published and around 2010, it was annouced in 2010 that the novel would be adapted into a film with Tim Burton producing and Timur Bekmambetov (the director of Wanted) directing the film. Studios entered a bidding war for the rights to the film with 20th Century Fox winning with its detail pitch on the production and marketing. The original author himself ended up writing the script with that and a cast set, filming began. Did it work? Let's see how it went first.

1. 4Kids hired TERRIBLE voice actors for Kirby: Right Back At Ya:
King Dedede = Cowboy
Meta-Knight = Spanish
2. They edited the crap out of Fumu-tan of the Stars (I forget which episode)
3. Cream's voice makes your ears bleed!
4. The theme tune was terrible all it was was 2 people singing "Sonic" with weird music in the backround.
5. Unfitting Jazz Theme Tune for Kirby: Right Back At Ya.
6. The also edited the crap out of a Naruto scene 9i heard this from my brother) where blood comes down the screen (in Japan) well they edited to make it green! I mean WTF!
7. In Yu-Gi-Oh Pegasus sounds like a gay guy and so does Escargoon!
8. For probably ALL theme tunes they just replace it with a weird theme tune and clips from the show! WHY NOT JUST USE THE ORIGINAL THEME TUNE!!!!!!
9. Also they have the most unfitting names for example Kirby: Right Back At Ya! I mean Kirby is just cute, that makes him sound like he's come up to you and beat you up

Then, some muffled moaning came from the side of the bed. Annie looked over the edge of the bed to see her friend Amanda hogtied with handcuffs, gagged with a ball gag and blindfolded with a scarf.
She suddenly remembered the events of last night. She had come to Amanda for a sleepover, and after a series of events, it had ended up in her getting involved in some bondage games. She didn't really know a lot about it, so it had scared her at first, and for payback she had tied Amanda up like that for the night.
"How can she even sleep like that?" Annie wondered as she slipped out of the bed and sat down beside Amanda, who was lying on a mattress that was really meant for Annie to sleep on.
"Guess I should untie her" Annie thought, unbuckling the ball gag.
"Mmm, tighter, Josh. Tighter oh, Josh "

You can only get away with this if your name happens to be Elmer Fudd. If your name is Elmer Fudd, go back to hunting wabbits; you're not much more successful as an author.
