Ever wonder why it’s called Legend of Zelda when it’s really Link who does all the legendary stuff? Well, Dorkly gives a nice explanation in the fun video below. It never actually crossed my mind. The only thing that did was I always thought these 8-bit Princesses needed tighter security. [via: gameinformer source:…

There’s been some buzz this past week about a new found secret in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! that tells you exactly when to punch to knock out the second Piston Honda and Bald Bull. I find it crazy that a game that has been around for about 30 years is still…

We’re already fans of Dave Delisle and his geeky takes on design. Honestly, he had us at Bobby Orr and NHL ’94 but his new posters are just as great. This time he’s taken on real city subway maps with a Mario theme. Mostly Super Mario Bros. 3 with a hint…

Canadian punk rock band, PUP (it’s OK, I never heard of them either), released a new track called “DVP” a few weeks ago. Shortly after, to accompany the single, the band released the song’s video which is simple in concept but also over-the-top fun. Well, at least we think so….

Leo and I have a love / hate relationship. Which is weird because we’ve never met and probably never will so it’s mostly me loving / hating him at various points in life. Maybe I’m still bitter about him stealing the Seavers Christmas gifts. Or the fact that he hangs…
