Yeah, I chose Paperboy as the header image for this post and you’re just going to have to deal with it. Best of lists are bound to attract controversy so prepare yourself to have some opinions on Time Magazine’s list of the 100 best video games.READ MORE

There comes a point in your gaming life when Super Mario Bros. levels become so engrained in your head you could play them with your eyes closed and still get six fireworks. Perhaps the solution is to then create your own level. Out of Post-It notes. Yeah, why not? That’s what the Final Cut King group (previously of Lightsaber Kitties and Kitten Pikachu fame) set out to do with 7,000 of the sticky reminders. Take a look, you might see some other classic game character cameos as well.

The Etsy shop Pica Pica Press was brought to my attention recently, and when I tell you I felt like I found the jewelry store that only existed in my head, I am not kidding. This is some of the best geek jewelry I’ve seen on the internet — subtle, pretty, and self-explanatory. Not to mention reasonably priced. You will want to see this.READ MORE

According to Geek Tyrant, this commercial for Pac-Man cereal was filmed in 1983, before Christian Bale starred in Empire of the Sun and became something of a renowned child actor. Of course, with the quality of the film, we only have their word for it that Bale is even the kid in this… but if there is ever a spot on the pop culture venn diagram that belongs on The Mary Sue, it’s the intersection between the Batman, Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, and pink marketing circles.
Editor’s Note: preliminary researched could not tell me whether it’s Ms. Pac-Man or Mrs. Pac-Man. Anyone with this information at hand please deliver it in the comments.

Sergej Hein, David Moya, and Julian Holland made a live-action Pac-Man short film. Gustavo and Davide ran around their city in Pac-Man and Inkey costumes. This is what happens when people get bored in Europe — live-action Pac-Man. I want to go to there.

Hey! We don’t really have a funny picture up here today because we need to adress some serious business. Our commenting system, Disqus, seems to have banned a whole bunch of people that we didn’t ask it to. Including one of our own writers! We want to let everyone know that these bans were not intentional, and we’re working to iron out the problems. At the moment we don’t exactly know what’s wrong, but it appears we are not the only site affected. On the other hand, other sites in our home network like Geekosystem are not having these problems. So it’s left us looking something like the picture above. We’re sure that it’s also left some of you like the picture above and we apologize for the inconvenience. We don’t hate you!
In the meantime, if:
- You find that you are blocked
- You were not spamming
- You had not shown a history of making personal attacks against our writers or otherwise being a jerk (we will notice)
Then please send us an email with your username, make sure the subject line is “TMS, Y U Ban Me?” just in case there turns out to be something that we can do about it.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled Things We Saw Today.READ MORE
