A popular myth is that Nintendo rips ideas off of Apple. It is a myth because of the fact that this implies there is a one way street of stolen ideas.
Ed stumbles across an unusual ad in an old computer magazine, in this short story by Mars.
I sure can't wait to see independence day resurgence. Just kidding, all the joy and anticipation I once had for upcoming films has been robbed from me by Disney's wicked Marvel Cinematic Universe.
BEEF: #JohnnyMnemonic Oh my God, I have almost half a terabyte of data in my head, in a hard drive, so now shit's going to get real real, real quick. There's a special place in my heart for the magic, the wonderment, the earth-bound space opera that is Johnny Mnemonic. Truly, it is one of the greatest movies of all time, and goldurnit, if you don't agree with me, cheese and rice. Shut the front door. #CHEESEANDRICE #SHUTTHEFRONTDOOR
MAC: Die Hard was so popular it became a sub-genre all to itself. From Under Siege to Speed to Air Force One, half the action movies from the 90s can be described as "It's Die Hard on an X." I'm honestly surprised more movies haven't poked fun at the formula. Besides Paul Blart: Mall Cop, this is the only one I can think of. The twist here is that Airheads is told from the perspective of the hostage-takers, a wannabe rock band named The Lone Rangers. Here the John McClane character is super annoying, either as sly jab at Die Hard, or because he's played by Michael Richards.
Everyone's favorite 'phant is back! Reintroducing Yellowphant, youngest member of the Shorties, or at least a self-proclaimed permanent baby. For those of you who've never had the pleasure, Yellowphant is a blustery lover of adventure, the ladies, and, of course, random fits of rage.
Everyone's favorite frog is back! Reintroducing Dr. Ebenezer Crunch, the crotchetiest member of the Shorties. For those of you who've never had the pleasure, Dr. Crunch is a blustery lover of strategy, the Queen, and, of course, eating people's legs.

Sunglasses are a force to be reckoned with, but like any force they can be used for good or evil. What follows are five dark paths the sunglass wearer can travel once they lose their way and stray from the path of the righteous badass to the sidewalk of unimaginable douchebaggery.
Jim Varney is a comedic genius. I'm not even kidding. He's up there with whatever comedian you personally consider a genius. Ernest can cycle through a half-dozen great characters in a single surreal montage. Compare that to Eddy Murphy, who can play five different characters and somehow manage to make me hate them all.
Top 5 Weapons in Videogames List. Epilogue: This #List Will be of #Games That Impacted the Way Developers Made #Weapons. (The Sequel). Directed by #StevenSpielberg
Videogame weapons are almost as important than videogame characters. In a first-person shooter, the guns get more screentime than the protagonist! In this article, we'll examine some of the most influential videogame weapons. Weapons that changed... the game.
When people complain about games like New Super Mario Bros. U, using them as examples of Nintendo not delivering high quality gaming experiences anymore, they are being unfair to Nintendo. Its like Mario keeps trying to kick the soccer ball, and princess toadstool keeps pulling it away. (Super Mario Strikers reference. What, you want me to make a mustache joke? how about a plumber gag, that would be refreshing as a sequel to CoD, Ghosts.)
Beef takes on Noah, from the maker of Pi, though not Pie, if it was the maker of Pie it'd be a Piemaker and only a fool would put charge a Piemaker with making anything other than delicious Pies, but like I said, in this case, it's Pi, like math, not like pies, thank you and have a lovely evening.
The first in a new series of articles in which Beef goes AWOL and takes on movies guilty of all charges.
Beef and Mac are Movie Cops. For their first case, they examine 1985's The Goonies. Greatest kids movie of all time, or greatest kids in a movie of all time?
Videogames based on White Wolf's World of Darkness universe have a way of... going horribly wrong. Whether it's Vampire: The Masquerade or Werewolf: the Apocalypse, White Wolf videogames are either canceled, released as a buggy mess, or drive the gamemakers themselves out of business.
After Phantom Menace hit, Trekkies was eager to show George Lucas how it was really done. And, credit where credit is due, they did one-up George Lucas. Because nobody kills a franchise like Paramount.
