Sonic Mural 2

TheFeed likes to give props to Art with a capital A, especially when it involves a four-wall mural of Sonic the Hedgehog in a child's room. Check it out above. It's the work of mural painter John Artnott, who does not shy away from the dark side of video games... click the cut to see what I mean.

Dungeons And Dragons

According to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, convicted criminals in the Wisconsin penal system are not allowed to play the pen and paper version of Dungeons and Dragons. The court upheld an earlier ruling concerning Kevin T. Singer. Singer, a convicted murderer and presumably nerd, had his D&D materials confiscated from his cell by the guards at Waupun prison back in 2004.

Singer argued that confiscating his little D&D books and fruity dice and lead figurines of elves was a violation of his 1st Amendment rights. The courts disagreed. Can you guess why the State forbids D&D? Here's a quiz:

Q: Wisconsin banned Dungeons and Dragons material from prison because:

1) Potential inmate violence against D&D playing prisoners.
2) "Weapons Guide" information could be used to fashion actual weapons.
3) The only real prison is in the Mind, so anything that helps prisoners mentally escape incarceration is verboten.
4) Dungeons and Dragons promotes gang activity.

If you said "4," Give yourself a +2 to your intelligence modifier; you are correct, sir.  This case marks the one time in human history when a group of players of Dungeons and Dragons were considered a "gang" as opposed to "a bunch of damn nerds."

*Disclaimer: I still play D&D, so I can make fun of it. You non role-players better show respect.

Kid Loses Half His Body Weight With WiiAttention lard-butts, fatty bum-ba-latties, and Two-Ton Charlies: You can lose weight playing video games. I know we've been hearing that refrain since the launch of the Wii, and it doesn't tend to work that well, but it really happened for teenager Taylor LeBaron. According to The Today Show, LeBaron shed half his body weight not by shaking around a Wiimote, but by using the principles he learned through video games to create a game-like dieting system.

You play The Ultimate Fitness Game by considering actual things in terms of video games. So calories are counted like gold in an RPG, you have enemies, allies, you probably level up based on the scale. It's all pretty ridiculous, and yet pretty awesome. Judging from the online excerpt of his upcoming book, LeBaron took a really systematic approach to his obesity problem, and employed the kind of discipline known to athletes and gamers who find ever single hidden packet in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Not to put down the kid's book, but I'll bet you could invent your own version of Ultimate Fitness if you wanted to. Although, I suggest adding the word "Extreme" in the title.  The problem in a real-life fitness game would come in the fact that the it would prove not as exciting as most video games, and would lead the player to attempts to exploit and game the system. Know what I mean?

Have you ever used the lessons you've leaned gaming to achieve real life goals? How did it work out for you?

Seamstress/blogger The Happy Seamstress has knit the nerdiest sweater ever created:

 Nerdy Sweater

It's so nerdy, in fact, that it travels around nerdiness and back to cool-osity.  I'm impressed and a little humbled by this historical moment in nerd-dom. Second picture is under the cut.

Beyoncé And Nintendo

As regular readers of TheFeed know, Beyoncé is the unofficial female mascot of our site -- no one is sure exactly why, but an election was held recently and Beyoncé triumphed over her closest competitor: Snooki from The Jersey Shore. Anyway, Beyoncé (or "Yoncé" as I call her in intimate moments) has teamed up with Nintendo to add some flavor to DS and DSi game Style Savvy. Players with broadband Internet access will soon be able to download five designs from Beyonce's real-life clothing line, Deréon, and use them in the game.  

Style Savvy is all about creativity and fashion, both of which are really important to me,” says Beyoncé in a press statement. “I love that I get to become a stylist and take over my own boutique, and it’s so much fun to see some of my Deréon designs added to the mix.”

Yeah, Style Savvy is a game about fashion, but shut up; It's awesome. Or so says X-Play's Abbie Heppe, and I promise she's more hardcore than you are. Just check out Heppe's rave in the video below:

Style Savvy Review with Abbie Heppe »


Maybe it's the cute accent over the "E" in her name, but, I think Beyoncé is the among the most interesting, beautiful women in the entertainment industry. I realize my taste in ladies is regarded as "crazy" or "wild" by some, so I welcome your opinion in our comment section about Beyoncé, Style Savvy, or really anything.

Nugget From The Net: The Game's Gaming Tattoo

According to rap blog Rap-Up, hip-hopper The Game is in the process of having the artwork you see above tattooed on his body. As you can see, it's an homage to the evolution of gaming, beginning with an Atari 2600 joystick, traveling through the NES era, to the Genesis, PlayStation 2 and finally the Xbox. There's also a gat and a skull, for that street touch. According to The Game, the gun "symbolizes the time he was shot while playing a video game." I get shot while playing video games all the freakin' time!

Project Runway Game Dated: March 2I'm not sure exactly why, but every single woman I know loves Project Runway. The design-based reality TV show holds some strange thrall over the female gender, and thus appears on every television in America owned by a couple. But it's only an hour a week, right? Wrong. Starting March 2, 2010, your TV will be taken over indefinitely by a Project Runway game for the Wii.

Project Runway will feature hosts/judges Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia as well as eight top contestants from season six of the show. The gameplay will feature what sounds like a bunch of mini-games, like a catwalk strut using the balance board, an interactive garment studio, a fashion photographer mini-game, hair and makeup studios and  "fashion career mode."

I bring this game up because I sincerely hope this will actually be a quality title for the Wii -- just because it's aimed at women doesn't mean it should be bad. I fear, however, that this will be a piece of shovelware with "quick buck" written all over it.

Hooray! Your requests (there were none, actually) for a Style Savvy review have been answered! In short, this game is a joy and it’s a shame no one can embrace their inner girly girl long enough to appreciate it. Well, I’m here to act as your inner girl-child for the day and tell you exactly what makes Style Savvy so great. Did all those games push their release dates in fear of Modern Warfare 2…or were they really worried we’d all be caught up styling our mannequins while gearing up for the platinum fashion contest? Okay…probably the former, but don’t dismiss Style Savvy just yet…watch.

Style Savvy Review with Abbie Heppe »


 

Diamond Photo

As an international multi-media superstar, I live a life of unimaginable excess. My car is made of solid plutonium. I listen to golden oldies, eat 100 Grand bars and order anything on the menu at the Olive Garden... including the extra bread sticks. Finally, the internet has an auction site for me: You plebes can have your eBays and your auction.com; my monied brethren and I prefer the genteel company at Billionaireexchange.com, a recently launched website that provides auctions for the super-rich looking to unload their yachts, Lamborghini's and death-rays.

I registered an account, and was about to take out an ad offering a human being available for hunting purposes (Jake Gaskill), but, apparently, it violates the company's terms-of-service to buy and sell other human beings in order to provide the discriminating sportsman with a worthy challenge. What a rip-off! The ability to hunt "The Most Dangerous Game" (Jake Gaskill) is the primary reason people become billionaires, and this site that supposedly caters to the wealthy should understand that. I mean, what good is another Gulfstream Jet if I can't affix rocket launchers to it and use it to torment and destroy my enemies (Jake Gaskill)?

Although the site won't let you traffic in humans, you can buy exotic cars, gem-encrusted cell phones and art. Check out the above "Diamond Photograph" by artist Vik Muniz. It's a steal at $62,000.00. I'm no art critic, but even an idiot like me can tell that if this was done with a Bedazzler, you'd call it trash, and it would cost about 6 bucks at your local Salvation Army. But it's made with diamonds, and that makes it Art! Amazing!

On a more serious note: You'd think the super-rich would have a website that doesn't look like a geocities page and throw out SQL errors every five minutes.

The great (unconfirmed) Derek “The Blizzard” Snowden came into work today flossing a plastic guitar he bought at 7-11. The whole office was obviously impressed with the bleeding-edge tech, but when Derek took a sip out of a straw protruding from his axe, a legend was born. Please enjoy Mr. Snowden’s in-depth review of 7-11’s amazing cup/guitar hybrid. Or, gup.

 THE 7-11 'ROCK THE GULP' BIG GULP GUITAR CUP REVIEW

Who Likes to Rock the Gulp?

I'll admit it. I enjoy a nice fountain drink now and then. I like guitars and things shaped like guitars.

Who Likes to Rock the Gulp?Today, I learned that I can appreciate a soda in a guitar-shaped beverage container.  That's it, really.

PROS

Holds 54 oz. of your favorite beverage
Available in red or blue
Has an adjustable strap with metal buckle
The raised plastic strings have surprisingly nice action
Good conversation starter
Comes with rad stickers and a handy ice cone

CONS

Does not hold 64 oz. of your favorite beverage
Not available in black or Fender
Guitar-stand-slash-hot-dog-warmer not included
Lefty flip is surprisingly unsatisfying
‘Rockin’ the Coffee’ can be fatal
I don’t like stickers or ice

CONCLUSION

Mmm, tasty and refreshing.  However, do not attempt to plug into an electrical source.  Results may vary.  For those of you wondering why this is on a videogame blog, here's an HTML hyperlink to our Lego Rock Band review.

Forgettable Jack Black comedy Year One came out on DVD earlier this month, and while I don't recommend you rush out and buy it, I do recommend you check out the video below, taken from the DVD's special features, in which a classic World of Warcraft video is enacted by Year One's cast... LEEEEE-ROY...Jenkins!

Google Buying Twitter?It seems as if the five billionth tweet has been tweeted (twittered? tweedled? en-twittenated?) from micro-blogging site Twitter.

As you can see, the "Pentagigatweet" reads only "Oh lord.", and it originates from Robin Sloan, a California writer and "web generalist." It's not a religious expression; Sloan's "Oh Lord." is the reply to another tweet.

Of course the accuracy of the five billion number isn't definite. It's based on third-party app Gigatweet's calculations, and doesn't take into account the times Twitter reset the tweet counts, nor does it factor in pre-launch tweets. But still, Sloan has the number 5,000,000,000 in his tweet's URL, and that's good enough for me.

As for the future of the famous tweet: Sloan promises to unleash the power of the "Necropentagigatweet" tonight at Midnight, PST, when he deletes the five billionth tweet from existence. This will most likely destroy the universe.

Sadly, my latest tweet, is not notable in any way.

Moon Attack Proceeding As Planned

Our long national nightmare is finally ending. In retaliation for the Mooninites' vicious invasion of the city of Boston a few years ago, NASA will explode the moon tomorrow night, and thus usher in a bright, new, moon-free future.

NASA's cover story for the moon-splosion is that they are seeking confirmation that there is water on the lunar surface, and they plan to send a rocket down to the crater Cabeus, then fly a spaceship through the dust kicked up in order to analyze the dust cloud for the presence of water. They say the explosion won't actually harm the moon in any way. Yeah. Right. The old "we're looking for water!" excuse.

"We will finally show that damned moon who is the boss: The U.S.A," a NASA scientist did not say. "America can, should, must and will blow up the moon." He did not add.
