Even Non-Gamers Would Approve: Video Game Pixelated Sweatshirts

Video Game Sweatshirts

Whoever said that gamers have poor taste when it comes to fashion obviously haven’t seen Drew Wise’s video game-inspired collection of sweatshirts. They’re colorful, they’re snug, and they’re comfortable, which is basically everything a sweatshirt should be. They’re available in designs that borrow themes from video game franchises and consoles, from the Game Boy handheld console to Pokemon.

Portal Undies and Knee-High Socks Physically Get You in the Game

Portal Socks

What better way to play Portal than to deck yourself out in themed garb? Obviously, you don’t need to, but I think it’s a little funner that way. The love that some people have for their favorite games inspires them to come up with designs revolving around the themes of the game, like these knee-high Portal 2 socks and undies.

You won’t survive any long falls even if you’ve got these socks on, but at least you’ll good in the process.

By Shane McGlaun

At one time, we have all played a game of dodgeball. The game is for some the first experience in the survival of the fittest nature of the world. At my school there were two types of dodgeball players, the sort who aimed for the testicles, and the sort that tried to hide behind the fat kid.

Game publisher SouthPeak Games has announced the availability of a new dodgeball game for the Wii that uses the motion based controls of the console to hurl balls at the enemy. As the title suggests, you can pit ninjas against pirates or chose from other groups of characters including robots, zombies, aliens, and some sort of mushroom men.

Need for Speed Undercover Gets New DLC

By Shane McGlaun

One of my favorite Need for Speed games back in the day was Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. I liked being able to play the cop and give people tickets and I liked running from the police as well. I guess EA tried to go all “PC” with Need for Speed ProStreet and took the racing off the streets. The game was cool, but I wanted police chases.

The latest title in the franchise, Need for Speed Undercover, gave me my wish and EA has announced that new DLC for the game is available for the PS3 and coming soon for the PC and Xbox 360. One of the DLC packs is a free offering called the Challenge Series and adds 60 events to the game. Along with new events called Highway Wars and Highway checkpoint races.

By Shane McGlaun

I am a huge UFC fan and have been watching the events since they first started back in the late 90’s. I still have fond memories of one of the early events where the boxer came in with one glove thinking he was going to beat the other guy down only to find himself on his back getting beat like a drum a few seconds later.

I have been waiting for the new UFC 2009 game to come out and it is almost here. The game is set to ship on May 19 for the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Until then THQ has announced that a playable demo is available for download for both game consoles right now.

Target Video Game Reservation Program Launches

By Shane McGlaun

I never pre-order video games; I don’t like having to pay full price for something that I can’t walk out of the store with. I bet there are many gamers out there who agree with me on that. Perhaps if the pre-order didn’t require me to pay up front I would reserve games.

Target has announced a new game reservation program that lets gamers reserve coming video games for only $1. For the buck, you get a card that looks like a gift card with the game logo on the front. Once the game comes in you pay the retail price and Target gives you a $5 gift card.

By Shane McGlaun

I am a big fan of PC shooters and my favorite all time shooter was Crysis from Crytek. I was almost as giddy as a schoolgirl when I heard they were launching Crysis Warhead. Warhead had great graphics, but the story line wasn’t quite as good as the original.

EA and Crytek announced that they are offering a free trial of the multiplayer shooter Crysis Wars available through Friday April 17. The trial allows players to play all of the games three multiplayer modes and all 23 maps.
