Red Faction Guerrilla Walkthrough

Mahalo's hard at work on our "Red Faction Guerrilla" walkthrough, and we've started posting some of the HD gameplay videos on our blog and site.

Game looks kind of fun, though I'm not sure if I'd go out of my way to get it. Seems like a game set on Mars would be more far-out and alien than this. This basically just looks like a red-tinted war game:

It's National Donut Day, People!

I already enjoyed a delicious Krispy Kreme this morning in commemoration. I'd suggest you do the same, unless, you know, you hate America...

I Can Haz Laser?

Surely this cat will kill us all. Someone hold me.

RT @Veronica Stop! Hammer Time!

This video is composed entirely of win. Why don't I ever go to stores where people are spontaneously doing the MC Hammer dance? Dammit!

It's a family affair on TWIYT with my co-host and brother @jdbranded. (And a special appearance by our mom)

Had a blast making this one today. Also, editing/directing savant Kenny Chen was able to turn it around in RECORD time. Epic.

House GOP: Ah, screw it...Let's just start letting kids get run over.

Rather than proposing, for example, the elimination of the Education Department, as they have in the past, Republicans are suggesting killing a program that pays for building sidewalks, bike paths and crossing guards as part of the Safe Routes to Schools program. That would save $183 million a year.

Nicely done, gents. That's going to be an easy sell to the average American. After all, no one cares about the safety of their children What alternative is there to just asking kids to get hit by cars and take one for the team? I mean, we don't want to burden the super-rich with an additional 2-3% in income tax! Am I right or am I right?

Other dynamite cuts included in the House GOP's proposal include not maintaining and preserving historic sites and dropping retirement benefits for federal employees.

So...they want oil and meat packing tycoons to be able to pass along lucrative trust funds to their great-grandkids, even if it means abandoning the Lincoln Memorial and shipping off aging former mail carriers to the poorhouse. How did these guys manage to lose the last election with a platform as appealing as that one?

Weird...It's almost like they intended this.

Background on James Cameron's "Avatar" film and game (via @PatrickMcConnel)

Sounds pretty impressive. I'm all for far-out sci-fi fantasy set in a wholly-original universe. Let's hope it can live up to several years of outsized hype...

I will buy the shit out of this

Personally, I don't mind that the Nintendo Wii has essentially become a gimmicky nostalgia machine. I have an Xbox 360 for more contemporary games. I say, go ahead and remake all my old NES favorites. If there were a new Kid Icarus reboot, I'd buy the shit out of that too!

Miniature City

Somehow this video was made using time-lapse photography of Tokyo, but don't ask me how they actually did it. Looks like an intricately designed model city.

Life in the Astounding Year of 2000! (via @jdbranded)

Such an accurate indictment of our collective failure to actually realize our ancestor's dreams. This would be depressing if it weren't so well-executed and funny.

Also, I love how EVEN THIS woefully obvious satire still inspire confused "is this real?" YouTube comments. Sigh...
